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.
