So you thought Hitler was the only sick bastard on the block huh? Guess again.. looks like those British are just as evil.
During the run-up to WWII, the British government formed the National Air Raid Precautions Animals Committee in 1939 to decide what to do with
all their animals once war broke out. The committee's primary concern was food shortages made worse due to people feeding their pets, so to curtail
this potential problem, they sent out a pamphlet called "Advice to Animal Owners" ... which came with an advertisement for a specific type of gun. You
can see where this is going.
I'd love to post the picture of the pamphlet but I cant get my uploads to show for some reason. The picture and story is found here:
The pamphlet advised the population that if they could not send their pets into the countryside, "it really is kindest to have them destroyed".
How did the British population take this order? With protests across the Isles, surely? Not exactly. Within the course of a week, 750,000 family pets
This is not even one big bad Hitler type dude going around killing all the puppies and kitties this is the British people themselves murdering in cold
blood by shooting the pets ( Pets, mind you, animals people are supposed to Love) in the head with guns sold for this very purpose !!
Now, I don't wanna hear another word vilifying Hitler. To me, any human who would kill their pet in such manner is equal to Hitler !
The point is not to downplay Hitler. The point is to show just as Hitler was human and did evil things he wasn't special in that. Let's say there was
one pet for every person. This means there were 750,000 sick in the head British people who were willing to murder their pet in cold blood. In
contrast, How can we really say Hitler was any worse then these people? People don't like to think that way because it shows Hitler in a better light
- but the point is to show these people were as bad as crazy, as evil as Hitler himself. No reason to single out Hitler as a monster when all the
"normal" people have to do is look in the mirror and find the monster in themselves. I wonder how many who shot their pets are hypocrites, justifying
their actions and not those of Hitler? Interesting.
