German president marks Dresden bombing, warns of rising hate

By FRANK JORDANS
yesterday

DRESDEN, Germany (AP) — Germany’s president called Thursday for his countrymen to stand up to extremism and nationalism, warning that hatred and a desire for authoritarianism are on the rise again in Europe, including in his country.

Speaking at a ceremony marking the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Dresden ’s bombing by allied forces at the end of World War II, Frank-Walter Steinmeier said it was important to recall who had started the devastating conflict.

The man-made firestorm, vividly captured by American author Kurt Vonnegut in his book “Slaughterhouse - Five,” and the destruction of large parts of the baroque eastern German city have become a rallying point for those seeking to portray Germans as victims in the war.


“It was Germans who began this gruesome war,” Steinmeier said.

“We won’t forget the German guilt,” he added. “And we stand by the responsibility that remains.”

Still, Steinmeier said those who perished in the Dresden bombings deserved to be commemorated, just like those killed by Nazi Germany’s aerial bombings in Guernica, Coventry, Naples, Le Havre and the Polish town of Wielun, where 1,200 people were killed by the Luftwaffe in the first hours of World War II.

1. What does Dresden have to due with hate crimes?

Other than Germany being responsible for one of the biggest hate crimes in human history?

This fucking "self-guilt" of the Germans is DISGUSTING.

We're like 10-15 years away from ZERO WW2 German soldiers being still alive.

Do you see the Frogs, the damn French self flagellating because Napoleon killed 100000's of black slaves in Haiti in 1802???????

Not just killed... Napoleon improvised execution chambers filled with poison gas...

4. How LONG should their self-flagellation last for?

100 years after the last German soldier dies? Or 1000?

Mao and China killed DOUBLE that the Germans did. Do you see Pity Parties in China???

Stalin and Russia killed 10M more than Hitler... and tears in Moscow?

7. "Stop beating yourself up about it." . Not I, just bringing forth the ridiculousness the


MSM presents to the trough - feeders.

We agree on something at least.
