On vegetarianism and evil


Here is a news story about a historical fact that is often overlooked everywhere but in Spain.

Spaniards have trouble understanding vegetarianism, and often place it in the same category as mental illness or moral degeneracy.

This has been my experience in Spain.  Nearly every time I have tried to explain that I don't eat any animals of any sort, I have gotten this as a response: "Well, you know, Hitler was a vegetarian."

Somehow, this tidbit of information is deeply encoded in the Spanish psyche.

So now it's time for the rest of the world to wake up and join Spain in linking vegetarianism to absolute evil and  irrepressible urges for genocide and world domination.

This has nothing to do with Cuba, of course.  Oh, wait...   maybe....except for the fact that I have yet to hear anyone complain in Spain (or anywhere, for that matter)  that Fidel Castro is not a vegetarian.

So, how about this exercise: compare  the photo below with the one above.....  Yes, mass murderers often enjoy their meals, regardless of their dietary quirks or the amount of suffering they inflict on others.  And they seldom have trouble finding food tasters or jolly sycophants who are eager to dine with them.

Hitler planned to force  vegetarianism on all Germans

Margot Woelk, 95, said that Hitler ate only the freshest fruit and vegetables during the two and a half years that she was forced to check his food for traces of poison.

During the Second World War, Mrs Woelk, a German citizen whose husband had been sent to fight, was taken by the SS to Hitler’s Eastern Front headquarters in modern-day Poland, known as the “Wolf’s Lair”.
There, she joined a team of a dozen other women whose job it was to protect Hitler from any attempts to poison him.

She said: “Between 11 and 12 o’clock, we had to taste the food, and only after all of us had tried it was it driven to the headquarters by the SS.

“It was all vegetarian, the most delicious fresh things, from asparagus to peppers and peas, served with rice and salads. It was all arranged on one plate, just as it was served to him. There was no meat and I do not remember any fish.

“Of course I was afraid. If it had been poisoned I would not be here today. We were forced to eat it, we had no choice.”

Hitler’s apparent enthusiasm for vegetarianism reflected the Nazi obsession with Aryan bodily purity.

A Hitler Youth manual from the 1930s promoted soya beans, which it called “Nazi beans” as an alternative to meat.

In 1942, Hitler told Joseph Goebbels that he intended to convert Germany to vegetarianism when he won the war.

  • "Well, you know, Hitler was a vegetarian."

    "Well, you know, Spaniards were among Hitler's most enthusiastic allies"

    In fact, when the tide turned, Franco had to reluctantly COMMAND his Blue Division home from the Eastern front, and many of them resigned from the Spanish army and joined the SS to remain on Hitler's side. Many more thousands of Spaniards volunteered to work in Nazi Germany's armaments industry---to send home remittances!

    Damn right...
    and monuments were erected to honor the Blue Legion AFTER Hitler lost the war.
    One of them was at the Alcazar in Toledo. Maybe it's been taken down by now?
    Another Spanish trait: burying the past whenever it becomes inconvenient.

    Thanks for the info, Herr Pitbull. Wonderful. I did not know that.
    This is hilarious. Or, as a French co-worker used to say: Eeee-lah-rrreeee-oos. Very useful information.
    Maybe we can say that he was also into "greenness" and "sustainability" too, as evidenced by the giant recycling programs established at his death camps.

    Carlos: As of August 2012, the Alcazar Military Museum had an entire section dedicated to the Blue Legion with armaments, uniforms, flags, propaganda, music, etc.
    The photo of Fidel Castro was taken in the Hotel Theresa dining room, when he visited Harlem in 1960, to show solidarity with African Americans when there was segregation in the South. Next to Castro is his own Cuban token Juan Almeida, the former assistant bricklayer (he aspired to be a bricklayer) who became a revolutionary millionaire general.

    He conned them in 1960 and he's been doing it ever since. Ask Charlie Rangel.

    Almeida spent his life kissing Fidel's ass, but it paid well enough.
