8 July 1934: Hess’s Königsberg Speech, “Germany and Peace: A Soldier’s Message”

The international reputation of the Third Reich was severely damaged by the cloak-and-dagger tactics employed in the infamous Night of the Long Knives (which actually occurred over the span of 30 June to July 2 1934). The purge resulted in the deaths of at least 85 people considered enemies of the state, including early Hitler supporter and SA leader Ernst Röhm. Rudolf Hess had been severely shaken by the events and had even engaged in an all-night row with his Führer prior to their onset, intent on minimizing the loss of life wherever possible. According to his adjutant:"Hess fought passionately…not allowing himself to be intimidated even by Hitler’s strongest outbursts. There were many, it will never be known how many, he saved." 

Despite his private anguish over this murderous split in the ranks, Hess’s personal loyalty to Hitler was unwavering. With his honesty and integrity already well-established, he was the perfect candidate to speak upon a world stage in the aftermath of the Röhm Purge, lending an air of credibility to Germany’s claims. After briefly reaffirming Hitler’s loyalty to the SA at large, Hess launched into an impassioned speech he had written himself and which came straight from his heart. Even delivered under furrowed brow, its essence represented a fleeting public display of emotionality for this sensitive soul, whose professed golden standard of a “man’s man” was one who appeared stoic at all times, or as he put it, "hard-boiled." Haunted by his own experience in the Great War, Hess appealed to soldiers on both sides of the Rhine to strive for world peace: "As one who fought in the front line trenches to other front lines soldiers throughout the world, as a leader of the German nation to the leaders of other nations, I ask: must this thing be? With goodwill and cooperation can we not save humanity from this?" 

Yet despite his best intentions, the thing he feared most was indeed to be. Fueled by dreamy idealism and a surprising level of denial concerning how Hitler’s ambitions—well-known to him, to be sure—were bound to play out in the longterm, Hess by himself could no more save humanity with his rhetorical overtures than he could in his undertaking a daring but unilateral wartime peace mission. While Hess stood by passively and gazed upward at the pedestal upon which he had placed his Führer, he had failed to notice that the course had already been set.

Tumblr’s gender community is literally the dumbest fucking community I’ve ever stumbled upon. 
They want to be recognized and taken seriously, they want to further their rights and gain the equality they deserve. This is completely reasonable, oppression is not fucking fun. I’ve been fucked with for a long ass time due to being gay, I know what fucking oppression is. The LGBTQ+ communtiy has come this far by peaceful protest and showing that we’re just as human as everyone else. 
Then these stupid little piss whipes come in and toss shit everywhere. Their strategy is literally this: 
"We want to gain equal rights and show the world that we’re people too! So we’re going to be as rude, aggressive, and immature as possible in order to obtain this! If people get offended by us saying "Cis-scum", then we’ll tell them that means they’re a privileged piss baby!" 
Are you fucking dense? Do you honestly think this will work? The world won’t take you seriously, the world won’t accept you, the world will think you’re batshit insane and try to push you down even more. You are working against the years of progress the trans movement has worked for. You are ebbing away at what so many people fought for out of your sheer stubbornness and stupidity. 
Fuck you.

I think we need to clone him for future generations.

Why? I’m pretty sure that when Death comes for him, Christopher Lee will be waiting with a knife, and I’m not betting on Death in that fight.

Are you kidding? Mr. Lee and Death are old drinking buddies.

Christopher Lee just stabs Death and there’s a beat before Death goes “HEEEEYYYY how the hell have you been, you old bastard” and hugs him, the knife still buried in his back.


#christopher lee proceeds to give death a hard time for not making the correct stabbed-in-the-back sound
