And because I used to do civil war reenactments and played a confederate, I am somehow supporting slavery etc??? Even though historically my Texas Unit did have a black regiment???
Do you have any concept as to how many perished during Lenin's brief reign (??) It's Small compared to Stalin , but still a substantial effort. I mean , I'll assume you have that Avatar for a reason (??)
Or tell me where they "reenact" the rounding up of Ukrainian Jews, forcing them to run a gauntlet through which they're beaten and then shot at the end and then have their bodies dumped in a bomb crater, as part of the Einsatzgruppe operation which resulted in the murder of 1,000,000 people. Please, do tell me where they reenact that. It's history, right?!
Maybe next they'll start "reenacting" the mass extermination of civilians through death camps.
Give me a ****ing break.
These losers glorify the SS and whitewash over their crimes and mass murders.
No they don't because Jews had nothing to do with the civil war and have nothing at all to do with the time period.
I guess you don't have time to read the disclaimer in bold letters on their site?
Disclaimer: This page or anyone involved in its creation, or members of reenactment groups listed here, are in no way affiliated with real, radical political organizations (i.e., KKK, Aryan Nation, American Nazi Party, etc.) and do not embrace the philosophies and actions of the original NSDAP (Nazi party), and wholeheartedly condemn the atrocities which made them infamous. May the victims of this unspeakable horror rest in peace. As we portray the German combat soldier, we are only interested in recreating his daily life, furthering our understanding of what it took to be a soldier, and at the same time having fun reliving history. We honor the men (and women) who really experienced the war, and we salute their courage and loyalty to put their lives on the line in defense of their native soil, no matter what nationality or government. - Willkommen! 5th SS Wiking German Reenactment Page
That's OK though, I understand political blindness.
You don't deserve a break, now answer my question...
Uh, the 5th SS Panzer Division Wiking massacred around 700 Ukrainian Jews as part of the Einsatzgruppe operation, among other war crimes. That's what I was referring to. If this is about history, then where is that information on their website? Care to try again on that one?
The disclaimer has absolutely nothing to do with my point. I don't think they're Nazis or anti-semitic, and I've never said such. I said that they're glorifying a group of Nazi's by whitewashing over their crimes and portraying them as basically "national heroes". So you jumped the gun on this one by wrongly thinking I believe that he's an actual Nazi/anti-semite. Go back and read my posts before you respond next time. Christ.
Your question is irrelevant to my point. Respond to my actual argument instead of this wacky one you made up and attributed to me, if you're going to respond.
They are not whitewashing anything.

It was an appropriate response to your "no they're not".
Members of the division's bakery column, led by Obersturmführer Braunnagel and Untersturmführer Kochalty, assisted Einsatzgruppe A in rounding up Ukrainian Jews. Witnesses report that the Jewish victims were forced to run a gauntlet formed by soldiers who would beat them as they passed, and when they reached the end of the gauntlet, Einsatzgruppen officers murdered them and their bodies were pushed into a bomb crater. The German 1st Mountain Division is also suspected of being implicated. Between 50 and 60 Jews were killed in this manner, as a part of the larger Einsatzgruppe operation which resulted in over 700 murders.
In addition historian Eleonore Lappin from the Institute for the History of Jews in Austria has documented several cases of war crimes committed by members of the 5 SS Division Wiking in her work The Death Marches of Hungarian Jews Through Austria in the Spring of 1945.
On March 28, 1945, eighty Jews from evacuation column, though fit for the journey, were shot by three members of the Waffen SS division Wiking and five military policemen. On April 4, twenty members of another column that left Graz tried to escape near Eggenfeld, not far from Gratkorn. Soldiers from the 5 SS Division Wiking that were temporarily stationed there apprehended them in the forest near Mt. Eggenfeld and then herded them in a gully, where they were shot. On April 7 and 11, 1945 members of the division executed another eighteen escaped prisoners.
wait, they don't. Or tell me where they "reenact" the rounding up of Ukrainian Jews, forcing them to run a gauntlet through which they're beaten and then shot at the end and then have their bodies dumped in a bomb crater, as part of the Einsatzgruppe operation which resulted in the murder of 1,000,000 people.
