    Overkill. 17 captured MG-34s, used as an anti-aircraft gun by the Red Army. Date unknown.

    NEVER ENUFF DAKKA YA PUNY HUMIES!

    On a more related note, I bet everyone that fired that gun left with a giant erection.

    If shooting guns sexually excited them, then yes probably. If they also owned a functioning penis, anyway.

    Sure, but after we lost the use of prehensile mustaches we had to groom our hair ourselves, and standards of dress slipped.

    My public speaking class had the two most amazing fucking racist guys Ive ever met. One insisted that Native Americans actually had to many rights because according to him he had witnessed a situation where a native had been murdered and the FBI were "scared to enter the reservation because they would be killed". I dont remember the context that caused the other one to insist that it was actually moral that we took over this continent and genocided a people.

    Ah, edgy bigots in history classrooms, how I don't particularly miss you...

    When I started my MA, one of the standard icebreakers was talking about peoples' undergraduate theses. As soon as I mentioned mine (shifting popular attitudes towards mental illness in the early 20th century) a few others in the cohort instantly perked up and assumed that meant I was obviously going to agree with them about their love of eugenics, volunteering a list of demographics they thought needed sterilization.

  • DedwrekkaDedwrekka What Would Nyarlathotep Do? Registered User regular
    There's a really good documentary released yesterday on Netflix called "Five Came Back" that covers five famous Hollywood directors who were enlisted during WWII and put in charge of making documentaries at the start of US involvement in the war.

    It was produced by Steven Spielberg and includes interviews with Guillermo Del Toro, Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola, Lawrence Kasdan, Paul Greengrass, and archived interviews from the five directors. You'd think a film about directors in war made by a celebrated director of war movies would be a little masturbatory, but it's fairly even coverage. Even showing the absurdity of one of the directors landing in Africa and complaining that he'd missed the entire conflict in that theatre.

    Most atrocities tend to get denied by the perpetrators, it does make you look pretty bad

    Interesting atrocity-related thing I learned recently: under Mao and for a long time afterwards, Chinese history books barely made any reference to atrocities committed by the Japanese army in China and they didn't feature at all on the political agenda until the late 80/early 90s

    There are multiple reasons for this, for one thing Japan was seen as very unthreatening after WW2 and the Communist government wished to avoid the narrative of a heroic defense of the country by the Kuomintang

    As some people surely know, Japanese responsibility was also mostly swept under the rug by the US in the aftermath of the war

    I think he used some variant of "they killed us too!" in addition to the usual attribution of the deaths to famine and (forced) migration

    Basically if your people get slaughtered, never take up any arms or someone will spin it this way (I have honestly no idea if there was armed resistance to the Armenian Genocide, he portrayed it as some sort of civil war)
