JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: MORE ON HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL DAY – DANGER THE FAR RIGHT? – THE DANGER IS OUR IGNORING TOLERANCE AND DECENCY – ALSO RUSSIA’S UNBELIEVABLE AND FORGOTTEN WW II LOSSES AND OUR TREATMENT OF RUSSIA EVER SINCE   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE INDEPENDENT

“On Holocaust Memorial Day, saying ‘never again’ is not enough – we must be constantly vigilant against the far right’

I just cannot agree with that.

What we must be on guard about is the old-fashioned values like respect, tolerance, and decency.

We see such values violated time and time again in numerous places in the world, and about many of them never a word is said.

Response to a comment about the massive WWII losses of Russia:

Yes, although the ghastly number is put now at 27 million.

The invasion of Russia was the most terrible event in all of human history, almost dwarfing anything else.

Stalingrad was the greatest battle. Kursk was the greatest tank battle. The Siege of Leningrad saw tens of thousands of bodies stacked like frozen logs.

But what do we see today in our press and from our politicians?

Hate Russia. Russia is evil. Russia is dangerous. Send troops and tanks to the border of Russia.

And this wave of filth comes after a long and costly Cold War and the West’s refusal to really help Russia when the Soviet Union collapsed and it experienced the equivalent of a Great Depression.
