the master race

Postby pilvikki » Sun Jul 08, 2007 8:33 pm

i'm very curious about the concept of hitler's crazy master race of the blond, blue-eyes he was going to whip into the rulers of the world. when i look at his pictures, he always looks dark haired with brown eyes. furthermore, he wasn't even german, so where did he get this daft notion of the superior nordic people from?

i can't find anything to explain this.

I seem to recall he was a romanticist and idealist, with visions of granduer based on Nordic Mythology
Then he got the power......... the rest is history!

You have to feel sorry for the kids who were chosen to be the Nazi's "Lebensborn." They were kids who had Aryan qualities the Nazi's were looking for, blonde hair, blue eyes and pale skin. These kids were usually orphans who were adopted into the families of the Nazis' elite force, the SS. There they were to be trained to be physically and mentally superior so they could manage the future Nazi empire.

A lot of times people think Hitler's "master race" was some sort of genetic experiment, but in reality his "master race" were made up of orphans from all countries of occupied Europe. After 1945 these poor kids, through no fault of their own, were persecuted by the German people and had to move away, many to the UK and America.

i understand that was one approach, the other did include some sort of experiments. ironically, one of the party platforms was better healthcare for expectant mothers.

i knew two guys who'd joined the SS as 14 year olds. at least one had nightmares all his life, the other one i'm not so sure about...

my little illution is that he wanted everyone like himself killed. He needed to be special.

He might not have been jew, but had he been a "commoner" he would have been shot because he was "jewish enugh". His mother was jew.

The "perfect race" was tall, blone with blue eyes. Himself was short, dark haired and dark-eyed.

Researchers think he was gay. He killed gay people.

...I don´t think he liked himself very much. bad selfesteam?

As far as i'm concerned, tall, dark hair and blue eyes are the master race. And you will soon all bow down to me, muwhahaha. :D

Well, I'm tall and have blonde hair and blue eyes. I better be careful about how much I talk about being superior to everyone else.. people may get ideas (well, until my army of robots pacify them, that is).
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
