Ouizy's thoughts on

Ernst Roehm...

(let's see how long this lasts BEAR - what were you testing me???)


<<<the following is part of the history of Ernst Roehm and the Nazi party - this is done as a dare and it simply recalls some facts that occured in Germany in the 1930's - Ouizy's opinion follows...>>>


Ernst Roehm was born in Munich on 28th November, 1887. He joined the German Army in 1906 and during the First World War was wounded three times and reached the rank of major.

After the war Roehm joined the Freikorps and served under Franz Epp in Munich in 1919. He remained active in right-wing politics and in 1921 he recruited Adolf Hitler to spy on the German Worker's Party (GWP). Soon afterward Roehm also joined the GWP. The arrival of Roehm was an important development as he had access to the army political fund and was able to transfer some of the money into the party.

In January, 1931, Adolf Hitler recalled Roehm to Germany and placed him in charge of the Sturm Abteilung (SA). In just over a year he expanded it from 70,000 to 170,000 members. By 1934 the SA had grown to 4,500,000 men.

Hitler liked Roehm and initially refused to believe the dossier provided by Heydrich. Roehm had been one of his first supporters and, without his ability to obtain army funds in the early days of the movement, it is unlikely that the Nazis would have ever become established. The SA under Roehm's leadership had also played a vital role in destroying the opposition during the elections of 1932 and 1933.

However, Adolf Hitler had his own reasons for wanting Roehm removed. Powerful supporters of Hitler had been complaining about Roehm for some time. Generals were afraid that the Sturm Abteilung (SA), a force of over 3 million men, would absorb the much smaller German Army into its ranks and Roehm would become its overall leader.

Industrialists, who had provided the funds for the Nazi victory, were unhappy with Roehm's socialistic views on the economy and his claims that the real revolution had still to take place. Many people in the party also disapproved of the fact that Roehm and many other leaders of the SA were homosexuals.

On 29th June, 1934. Hitler, accompanied by the Schutzstaffel (SS), arrived at Wiesse, where he personally arrested Ernst Roehm. During the next 24 hours 200 other senior SA officers were arrested on the way to Wiesse. Many were shot as soon as they were captured but Hitler decided to pardon Roehm because of his past services to the movement. However, after much pressure from Hermann Goering and Heinrich Himmler, Hitler agreed that Roehm should die. At first Hitler insisted that Roehm should be allowed to commit suicide but, when he refused, Ernst Roehm was killed by two SS men.

The purge of the SA was kept secret until it was announced by Hitler on 13th July. It was during this speech that Hitler gave the purge its name: Night of the Long Knives (a phrase from a popular Nazi song). Hitler claimed that 61 had been executed while 13 had been shot resisting arrest and three had committed suicide. Others have argued that as many as 400 people were killed during the purge. In his speech Hitler explained why he had not relied on the courts to deal with the conspirators: "In this hour I was responsible for the fate of the German people, and thereby I become the supreme judge of the German people. I gave the order to shoot the ringleaders in this treason."

I believe that quite possibly the extent of World War two may have never happend if Hitler did not exterminate the SA. As Roehm was a homosexual, he may have realized that what they were indeed doing was wrong, and as he was gaining power, and numbers of men, the National Socialist party may have never had the power they did if the SA had gained control. This of course is a long shot as Roehm himself chose Hitler as an upcoming leader. Either way they were both scum and that period of history is now burned into the hearts and minds of every Jewish person who walks the planet.

When I went home last night I felt sick.

Sick because:

1. I posted something about Nazis.
2. I posted something that Suckle Bear dared me to post.

I felt like an ass.

I slept just fine though.
