King and Hitler in cahoots

Recommended Posts

My wife watches queen on Netflix.  It's very accurate. However I just learned that her uncle (who stepped down to let her father take over) ended up trying to be in cahoots with Hitler during ww2.  They had questioned it but never knew. And America called them out on their shit.  Dude visited concentration camps and tried telling people Hitler was a good guy.  

Also Philip and jfk were very good friends. So they pushed jacky and the queen to be very good friends.  Well jacky talked shit about the queen saying she was spineless.  So she has jacky flown to the palace and face to face told her she was a back stabber. (The queen was also So hot she went and danced with Africans in a village, which is something they never did ever. Because they considered them lower then them)...... ohhh the kicker.  The day after she told jacky off, jfk was shot.

EDWARD VIII COZIES UP TO HITLER
(Episode 6: Vergangenheit)

Edward VIII became King of England after the death of his father, George V. He ruled for less than a year, abdicating the throne in 1936 in order to marry Wallis Simpson, an American divorcée. At the time, the Church of the England—which is led by the monarch—did not allow divorces. Therefore, King Edward VIII had a choice: love or the crown? He chose love, taking on the title of Duke of Windsor.

The relationship between the Duke of Windsor and his royal family has been at the center of many plot lines in The Crown. What might have seemed like petty family feuds and a complicated love story, however, is actually much more pernicious, filled with pro-Nazi sympathies and ties to Hitler.

In October 1937, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor visited Hitler at Berchtesgaden, where Hitler had been vacationing since the 1920s. According to biographer Frances Donaldson, in her book “Edward VIII”, the Duke gave Hitler full Nazi salutes during his visit. While some say this trip was more to receive support for Edward and his wife, the Duke’s actions speak louder than hypotheses. The royal family did not support this visit.

Just after the war, American diplomats uncovered 400 tons of German diplomatic papers, at Marburg Castle. Named the Marburg files, they included a cache of documents damaging to the royal family called the “Windsor File”—some 60 documents (letters, telegrams and other papers) written by people working around the Duke, including German agents, during the war.

Among these documents are details of the Nazis-devised plan “Operation Willi,” where the Germans would gain control of Britain and overthrow the monarchy, returning the Duke to the throne. The Germans viewed the Duke, who was perceived to be ambivalent about the war, as a better ally than his successor King George VI. In order to get the Duke on their side, German agents tried to manipulate the ostracized royal, even attempting to convince the Duke that his brother, King George, had plans to assassinate him. The documents were leaked to the British government, which tried to suppress them.

When WWII started, the Duke was made a major-general in France; but Winston Churchill, aware of Edward’s pro-Nazi sentiments, sent him to be the governor of the Bahamas. But the Duke and Duchess of Windsor did not comply right away, instead spending time in Lisbon and Madrid—during which time the Nazis devised “Operation Willi.” In the end, the Duke ended up in the Bahamas and the Nazis never succeeded in overthrowing the crown.

In 1946, Britain, France and the United States agreed to work together to process the Marburg files, appointing top historians from each country to oversee the project. Despite British efforts to continue to hide the truth, Americans released the documents in 1957.

Yes bro , I'm a student of history , I know all this...sympathy for Germany and the rise of Hitler was not rare in England at the time , not at all . The last thing most Brits wanted was a conflict with Germany and most of the population realized the treaty of Versailles was way too punitive for Germany to swallow . Hitler admired Loyd George greatly and the feeling was mutual.

Thus , the policies of appeasement implemented by Chamberlain and many others . Even when Germany invaded Poland in 1939 , the vast majority of Brits did not advocate for war . And anti Semitism was certainly not invented by Hitler , it was widespread thru out the continent and had been for years. The Poles were among the worst offenders and a majority of holocaust survivors that returned to Poland after the war were persecuted heavily. The history books we read in school, for the most part , do not mention this .

Read up on Oswald Mosely and the British Union of Fascists , Unity Mitford , etc etc . Really , it was only after Dunkirk and the Battle of Britain began that the tide of British sentiment turned heavily against the Nazis. 

And fascism was hardly unique to Germany. It was widespread thru out the continent. Had Hitler held his water and not bet the house against the Soviets , we would all sprechen sie Deutsche today . True story...

@Freebird Lives I never knew even any of that.  Only thing I ever knew was where they had their small thing of kicking Jews out.
