I wanted to talk about General George Patton (1885-1945), due to the fact; how there are white supremacists and Nazi sympathizers, who use one of Patton’s quotes to argue how the allies were worse than the axis.
His quote, “we defeated the wrong enemy” is a paraphrase from the passage seen in the 2nd slide. He said this to try to convince the others into going after the Soviet Union after the Nazis have fallen. That doesn’t mean he regretted to taken down the Nazis, on the contrary, he actually wanted to fight and beat the Nazis. Of course they didn’t agree with Patton to fight the Soviets because:
1. The war had already taken a massive toll on casualties and amount of destruction that it would be too costly to even continue the war against the USSR.
2. No one would dare to shot the first shoot fearing it would lead to a more devastating event. Not just 10 millions more dying in a allied-soviet war, but millions more to follow due to; famine, poverty and total destruction.
There were many more reasons to why the allies didn’t want to fight the soviets, but at that the main threat were the Nazis. And the Nazis wanted world domination.
Patton felt proud about defeating the Nazis, but upon realizing what the soviets were up to in the east. Patton saw them as a rising threat as well, and was desperate to go after them. However his health, deteriorating, got the best of him and lead to his death.
This is one big deal I wanted to cover about General Patton, because of Neo-Nazis using his quote to mislead and prove their vague points, by cherrypicking.
