Napoleon verses the Bunnies
After signing the Treaty of Tilsit in 1807 Napoleon decided to celebrate by hosting a rabbit hunt, entrusting the arrangements to his chief of staff Alexander Berthier. Berthier gathered several hundred rabbits for the hunt, and invited some of the most important men in the French Empire. In addition to the various VIP’s present at the hunt, there were also a number of gun bearers, beaters (a person who flushes game by beating the brush with a stick), and game keepers. The plan was that when the gamekeeper released the rabbits they would scatter in all directions, running for their lives as the hunters shot the rabbits at will. There was one hitch, Berthier had not gathered wild rabbits but purchased tame domesticated bunnies. When the bunnies were released, rather than running for their lives they all dashed at the hunting party, believing they were about to be fed by the man wearing the big hat. Napoleon formed a skirmish line but the horde of bunnies swarmed the party, tugging at their pants and climbing up their legs. Sensing defeat as a bunny climbed up his jacket Napoleon called retreat and made for the safety of his coach. Napoleon had to eject several bunnies from the coach while making his escape.

I am really not understanding how the fuck you people jumped so fast on this goddamn crazy train.
SOME OF YOU are right - we need more “humanizing” images of Hitler because we can never forget that he wasn’t a cartoon villain in a Disney movie. He was a real person, a complicated person like any of us, and to think of him otherwise lets us put our guard down against future monsters.
But the idea that Hitler “thought he was doing the best thing for his country” is BULLSHIT and worse, it’s DANGEROUS BULLSHIT. He took a group of people who had previously been extremely well assimilated into German society, who considered themselves as German as their “Aryan” neighbors, and wholesale murdered them in the most brutal fashions possible. Millions of men, women and children were viciously stamped off the earth because of his racism.
Hitler was not “trying to do best for his countrymen”. Jewish Germans WERE his countrymen and your othering of them is making me INCREDIBLY uncomfortable. Jewish Germans were highly assimilated into German society; when diaries and letters of victims are read, their de-assimilation and sudden push into a Jewish-only community by their fellow Germans was the most hurtful part of the pre-Holocaust Third Reich.
He purposefully annexed countries and drove eastward in a violent, brutal, murderous campaign to gain more land for “aryan” Germans because he believed it was their right to have whatever they wanted and enslave or murder “lesser” peoples. He wanted land and power and to create an empire that would rule all of Europe and even extend into Asia. He was NOT “trying to do best for his country”. He was a violently racist anti-Semite WHO ALSO WAS A COMPLEX PERSON WITH THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS WHO OCCASIONALLY COULD BE NICE TO SOME PEOPLE. That is the ONLY appropriate take-away from this post.
Go read a history book you ignorant fucks.
Not to mention he knowingly seized his power during a time when Germany was still recovering from the beating they took in WW-I.
At the time of his rise to power, the German people were still war-weary and in need of someone to empower them. And what better way to empower them to find an outlet for their frustration and anger than to demonize an entire PEOPLE? The Jewish Germans were near at hand and thus an easy scapegoat for Hitler’s plans.
He was an evil, vile human being and if you’re an apologist for him go straight to the deepest circle of hell. Do not pass go. Do not collect shit.
But can we talk about how it seems easier for White people to humanize Hitler rather than, say, Trayvon Martin or anybody else who’s Black for that matter….
tmw your evidence doesn’t prove your argument…and Hitler, though a shitty guy, did do in his eyes what was best for his country and succeeded. NaTiOnAlIsM. but yeah he was a dick
