Mass Rape in Europe by Allied soldiers after World War 2 

The greatest crimes against women and Europeans in history, was the mass rape of the European women after the Liberal-Communist victory in 1945. 

The rapists were mainly Soviet and US soldiers. They were permitted and encouraged by official “Allied” policies which incited hatred against those of European nationalities which were  in fight against Communism. In Vienna,Austria alone, they raped 100,000 women, not once but many times, including girls not yet in their teens, and aged women.

By official policy, the Allies created conditions in which the only German mothers who could keep their young children alive were those who themselves or whose sisters became mistresses of the occupying troops.

According to testimony given in the United States Senate on July 17, 1945, when the colonial French troops under Eisenhower’s command, mostly Africans, entered Stuttgart, they herded German women into the subways and raped some two thousand of them. In Stuttgart alone, troops under Eisenhower’s command raped more women in one week than troops under German command raped in all of France for four years.

In fact, of all the major belligerents in World War II, the German troops had by far the smallest record of rape and looting

On 1945, the Red Army advanced toward Berlin, out of a civilian population of 2,700,000, 2,000,000 were women. Fear raced through the city. Doctors were besieged by patients seeking information on the quickest way to commit suicide, and poison was in great demand.

On March 24, 1945, the Soviets entered Danzig. A Soviet officer told a group of women to seek safety in the Cathedral. Once they were securely locked inside, the beasts of Bolshevism entered, and ringing the bells and playing the organ, “celebrated” a foul orgy through the night, raping all the women, some more than thirty times.

After the Soviet conquered Neisse, Silesia, 182 Catholic nuns were raped. In the diocese of Kattowitz 66 pregnant nuns were counted. In one convent when the Mother Superior and her assistant tried to protect the younger nuns with outstretched arms, they were shot down. Several villages where all the women, even the aged and girls as young as twelve, were violated daily for weeks by the Allies. A Danzig teacher reported that her niece (15) was raped seven times, and her other niece (22) was raped fifteen times. A Catholic pastor in Danzig declared,

“They violated even eight-year-old girls and shot boys who tried to shield their mothers.”

The US soldiers are not better than the Soviets!

After WW-II Germany had no Nazi party in the Parliament, and so everything was buried and forgotten. The same happened in Italy, but since they still had the fascist party in Parliament ( the name was MSI, later on “Alleanza Nazionale” with a peak of 17% of voters, nationwide in 1994 ), these stories were well documented over the years and brought to the public.

In Naples, South Italy, an Italian survivor states that Black American troops were allowed by their superiors free access to Italian women.  In Italy, the number of rapes committed by blacks during WW2 in South of Italy alone – amounts to roughly 60.000 women, children and teenagers. The result of this interracial rape and sexual slavery was the production of a generation of pitiable mixed-race children, a result of interracial sex between Italian women and Liberal beasts.

If you remember nothing else from this post remember this:

"of all the major belligerents in World War II, the German troops had by far the smallest record of rape and looting."

"The greatest crimes was"

And I’m going to need to see a source on this.

Quick google search turned up a Wikipedia page among other results:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_during_the_occupation_of_Germany

Except that article and related ones contradict the original posts at several points. For instance the unnamed Italian individual’s allegations go against the fact that, at least in Germany and France, black troops were disproportionately punished for rape (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_during_the_liberation_of_France#U.S._military_response and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_during_the_occupation_of_Germany#US_Military). I’m not disputing that the Soviets raped in great numbers, nor that the American troops did so, the former is even quite common knowledge. But statistics like “they raped more in a single city in a week than the Germans did in an entire country in four years” seem simply absurd, even taking into account the the German conquest of France and Allied conquest of Germany were done under very different circumstances. Moreover, it’s written not with the intention of making the Allies’ crimes known, but to make the Germans look innocent by comparison. The Allies pressed German women into prostitution (actually, source on this please?), the Germans did the same to Polish girls (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_military_brothels_in_World_War_II#Eastern_Europe). Besides, the atrocious grammar and style as well as propagandistic and race-baiting writing are hardly conducive to credibility.

The one-sentence description of the above article would be “The allies went on a massive rape rally which was never prosecuted” which I think my link demonstrated.

And that’s really all I cared about.

Is it race-baity? Ye. I don’t know if it’s true or not. Assume probably not, given that black units were almost never on the front lines in WW2.

But hey, that’s not what I set out to prove.

Well, the implicit and motivativing one-sentence point that I’m concerned with is “of all the major belligerents in World War II, the German troops had by far the smallest record of rape and looting.”

You seem to want to argue, so fine.

Let’s argue.

First, your link is entirely anecdotal. It refers to 2 incidents — I guarantee you that in any war, sexual assault of that kind has occurred. However, the lower heading suggests that the “forced prostitution” that occurred was with women who were already prostitutes being forced to serve a German clientele. Certainly rape, but not equivalent by any means.

Further, as to the blacks raping in Italy, here’s a source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marocchinate It’s not accurate to say it was black US soldiers — it was Africans serving the French. But in spite of France’s desire to keep the world’s head in the sand, it is known to have happened.

Keep in mind, further, that Nazi Germany is not exactly a difficult target for slander, whether true or not — especially given that these stories came out of Soviet-held territories, where rapes certainly did occur, but the government is known to have covered up Soviet crimes!

Alright, you fucking armchair historians, now you’re just adding fuel to this fire of hatred. Listen up.

Not only is wikipedia an invalid source of information but even going to the references section, there’s no cover-up of what happened (like we need to associate with Neo-Nazis to get the truth, huh?) If there was, then why would the Italians create a term that means,”Moroccan deeds” even though they were part of the French troops? The French who btw colonized North Africa. They’re the ones who recruited them. This is common knowledge to anyone in Morocco; if there is hesitation in talking about this, there are Amazigh (or people of mostly Amazigh ancestry) who will proudly tell you how some of their grandfathers fought against the French. 

Furthermore, the first search result in Google for this term is the Stormfront website. It’s alive and well. The two Neo-Nazis bringing this up are doing it solely to make Africans look bad. 

Second, “slander” does not apply to things which are true. Covering up Soviet and US crimes are lies by omission, and they’re not the same as blatant racism and objectification of rape victims to play into the “we must protect our women!” mentality. Yes, “The US soldiers are not better than the Soviets!” But neo-Nazis do not get to lay claim on the truth and they are nobody’s friend. This post could have easily been made without all the propaganda, making war crimes look like a fucking contest and using rape victims as props in order to make the Germans look better (how grateful we must be that the Germans seemingly didn’t rape as much as the other guys!)

How come nobody mentioned that the Nazis raped the women in concentration camps? Hmm? Oh, right, because the original posters considered those victims to be subhuman. And you just so happened to play right into that. Whoops!

Remember the Women Institute

To wit, this steaming pile of bullshit right here:

However, the lower heading suggests that the “forced prostitution” that occurred was with women who were already prostitutes being forced to serve a German clientele. Certainly rape, but not equivalent by any means.”

Oh yeah, such historical accuracy. Already prostitutes: you mean, already sex slaves. When there are so many soldiers, there are bound to be women (and teenage boys) trafficked to supply the demand (including those already in concentration camps!) There’s simply no way to know exactly how many women were in the brothels, so it’s easy for the neo-Nazis to claim the Germans “had the smallest record of rape.”

"Not equivalent." RAPE IS RAPE, PERIOD. Stop implying that rape is "not as bad" when it happens to prostituted/trafficked women. That part is beyond any attempt (however pathetic) at historical accuracy; it’s your own bigotry speaking.

Signed, a rape survivor.

Hey friends! If you’ve been following me since February I am very sorry to annoy you with yet another post about my ex boyfriend Steve, shavingryansprivates, regarding his awful behavior towards others.

A few months ago I spoke openly about how he sexually assaulted me while we were together sometime in December or January. After publicly speaking about his mistreatment towards me, 3 girls messaged me sharing their experiences with him. Amid exposing male bloggers for their predatory behavior recently, 4 more have come forward to tell me about their experiences with him.

So I’m compiling this post so his other victims can share their stories and have their voices heard. Just so everyone knows, it’s a very long post.

Warning: there are mentions of #sexual assault, #emotional abuse, and #predatory behavior so please exercise caution if you continue to read.

Two more people have come forward to share their experiences!

Why feeding water birds bread is harmful:
Duckling Malnutrition: In an area where ducks are regularly fed bread, ducklings will not receive adequate nutrition for proper growth and development. Furthermore, because ducks will naturally seek out an easy food source such as human handouts, ducklings will not learn to forage for natural foods as easily.
Overcrowding: Where an easy food source is abundant, ducks and other waterfowl will lay more eggs and the pond or lake will become overcrowded. This makes it more difficult for the birds to seek out healthier food sources and increases the likelihood of territorial aggression.
Pollution: When too much bread is offered to ducks, not all of it will be eaten. The soggy, uneaten bread is unsightly and rotting bread can create noxious odors as well as lead to greater algae growth that can clog natural waterways. This concentrates the pollution and can eventually eradicate fish and other life in the vicinity.
Diseases: Feeding ducks bread can increase the spread of diseases in two ways. First, a carbohydrate-rich diet leads to greater defecation, and bird feces easily harbor bacteria responsible for numerous diseases, including avian botulism. Second, moldy bread can cause aspergillosis, a fatal lung infection that can decimate entire duck and waterfowl flocks.
Pest Attraction: Rotting supplies of food leftover from sated ducks will attract other unwelcome pests such as rats, mice and insects. These pests can also harbor additional diseases that can be dangerous to humans.
Loss of Natural Behaviour: When birds become accustomed to handouts, they lose their natural fear of humans and may become aggressive in order to get more food. Their loss of fear can also cause other dangers, such as a willingness to cross busy roads in order to reach picnickers and other likely sources of food.
Good Foods to Feed Ducks:
The best foods for ducks are those that provide the nutrients, minerals and vitamins the birds need for healthy growth and development. Many of these foods are similar to the natural seeds, grains and plants the birds will forage on their own. As omnivorous birds, ducks will eat a great deal of different foods, and the best foods to offer ducks include:
Cracked corn
Wheat, barley or similar grains
Oats (uncooked; rolled or quick)
Rice (cooked or uncooked)
Birdseed (any type or mix)
Grapes (cut in half)
Frozen peas or corn (defrosted, no need to cook)
Earthworms
Mealworms (fresh or dried)
Chopped lettuce or other greens or salad mixes
Vegetable trimmings or peels (chopped)
Duck feed pellets or poultry starter pellets (x)

Every year I will reblog some kind of reminder of this! Please don’t feed waterfowl bread.
