Anne, Stryker, April the Cat & I Arrived in Spicewood Texas Yesterday (November 9, 2019) Afternoon, after 2100-Miles on the Road from South Eastern Ontario Canada to the Lone Star State.
It was Wonderful Being Greeted by Friendly Faces who Run this Brand New RV Park, which is Somewhat still in the Making, as we Await more than a Dozen Friends from all across the United States of America, and one Canadian, who are also on their way to Spend the Winter far Removed from Really Cold Temperatures, Snow, Freezing Rain & Ice.
I Thank Everyone For Your Patience In The Lack Of Me Writing, While We Traveled.
Tomorrow is Remembrance Day (Canadian Description) & Veterans’ Day (American Description), which are Basically One in the Same.
When I was Growing-Up, many of the Adults Referred to November 11th As Armistice Day . . . which was when the Germans & their Axis Partners Surrendered to the Allies to End the First World War – “The War To End All Wars”.
Whether We Like It Or Not . . . Believe It Or Not – Wars Will Never End.
Therefore – Our Guarantee, which is as Best as we can Guarantee Anything to our Freedoms . . . is Paramount to the Strength of our Military, our Politicians’ Willingness to Fight when Necessary & Called Upon . . . And A Strong Leader.
By 1939 . . . My Dad (Eddy Galganov) Enlisted, as did Three of his Brothers (My Uncles) who Donned Canadian Uniforms and Headed Across the Atlantic to Fight the Germans, as did Millions of other North Americans (Canadians & Americans), and Others who Freed the World from Unbelievable Evil in the Name of the Nazis – and to the South Pacific to Fight Hirohito of Japan.
Make No Mistake About It . . . Today’s Germans Lay The Blame For WWII At The Feet Of The Nazis, where in all Reality, as De Tocqueville once Wrote (To Paraphrase) . . . No Matter How Charismatic A Leader Might Be, He Can’t Lead A Nation In A Direction The People Are Not Prepared To Follow.
And It Wasn’t Just The Germans . . . All of Europe was Culpable in the Holocaust, as were Canadian Leaders (Canada’s Prime Minister King & America’s President Roosevelt).
My Weapons Are Words, Truth, Honesty & History – But If Necessary – I Would Go Beyond.
I Wear My Poppy On November 11th . . . To Pay Homage To The Brave Men & Women who Sacrificed So Much for our World to be Free. I NEVER Want to Forget the Patriots of Freedom who Fought for Me and Countless Others, so I Wouldn’t Have to Pick-Up a Weapon to Fight for Myself.
On This Week . . . We Pay Tribute To Remembrance/Veterans’ Day – And To The 30th Anniversary Of The Fall Of The Berlin Wall. But We All SHOULD Remember & Pay Tribute To The Day Of Broken Glass – Kristallnacht – when on November 9th & 10th . . . 1938, Throughout Germany & Austria – Jews by the Hundreds of Thousands were Disenfranchised.
Tens of Thousands of Jews were Beaten by Government Sanctioned Thugs, Hundreds of Jews were Murdered, Jewish Women were Raped, Synagogues & Jewish Owned Businesses were Torched & Virtually all Jewish Owned Businesses Suffered at the Very Least from Shattered Windows – Hence the Term Kristallnacht . . . “The Night Of Broken Glass”.
If You’re Jewish . . . And You Believe That This Is Somehow “Ancient” History, which is Over & Done with, Which Happened 81-Years Ago, and can Never Happen Again . . . That’s What So Many Hopeful but Ignorant Jews Thought After the Roman Defeat of Israel at the time of Jesus Christ, then the Crusades, then the Inquisitions, then the Anti-Jewish European Laws, the Jewish Poll Taxes and the Pogroms . . . Ending CURRENTLY with the Holocaust.
I Write Currently . . . Because It’s Never Going To End – There Will Only Be Respites!
JEW-HATRED IS A MAGNIFICATION OF EVIL . . . That Grows like a Cancer, Indiscriminate of who it Destroys. When they Come for Me Because I’m A Jew – Understand This . . . Next – They’ll Be Coming For You.
6-Millions Jews Were Slaughtered In European Holocaust Death Camps . . . But So Also Were 6-Millions Non-Jews.
I Don’t Know If You Remember Who Tony Randall Was . . . But to Shake your Memory, Tony Randall was a Brilliant Stage & Screen Actor, who for Years Starred beside Jack Klugman in the Television Sensation we Knew as the “Odd Couple”.
Randall & Klugman Were Both Jewish . . . Both were Born in the USA and Served During WWII. Both were Diehard Patriotic Americans & Champions of Freedom.
Tony Randall Was A Brilliant Man . . . in many Regards besides his Multitude of Stage, Screen & Musical Talents . . . Randall was a Semanticist, a Person with an Unbelievable Grasp of the English Language’s many Nuances.
Many Years Ago . . . At a Time Before the Fall of the Berlin Wall, I Saw Tony Randall on the Johnny Carson Show, when Randall gave Thanks that the Berlin Wall Existed, Saying that if Germany was Ever to Re-Unite as a Nation, he Feared that the Time will Come Again, when America will have to Save the World from Germany.
So Here We Are Celebrating, or more Appropriately-Stated . . . Memorializing all the Men & Women who Served, who were Wounded, who Died and the Millions more who were Permanently Mentally Damaged (PTSD) Fighting Germany Twice, while the World Celebrates the Fall of the Berlin Wall, which was Caused Exclusively by Germany’s Two World Wars.
And Here I Am . . . Remembering My Dad & Others Who Sacrificed so Much Fighting the Germans, while also Remembering Kristallnacht, which was the Precursor to the Slaughter Of Europe’s Jewish Population, at the Hands of the People we are now Paying Homage to this Week, because of the Fall of the Wall of their Own Making.
As We’re Memorializing Our Brave Warriors Of Multiple Wars . . . The World Is Going To Hell In A Handbasket. And wherever there are Jews, Anti-Semitism (Jew-Hatred) is on the Rise in Horrific Numbers, which can also be Said throughout the World, even where there Aren’t Jews, or an Appreciable Community of Jewish People.
And After More Than 80-Years Of Extreme Anti-Semitism . . . And Tens of Millions Of People who Paid the Ultimate Sacrifice in More Ways than I can Describe, Jew-Hatred In Germany Is Once Again On The Public Stage & On The March. And Not just Amongst Islamists.
In This Week Of Remembering . . . There’s An Awful Lot – Not To Forget.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
