The White Rose

How many times have you seen someone try to compare this movement to "Holocaust Revisionists" (Holocaust Deniers)? I've seen it too many times to count.

One of the main things "Holocaust Revisionists" focus on are the amount of Jews murdered by the Nazis.

None of us deny that 2,973 people were brutally murdered on 9/11. We deny the bogus story we were told about how and why it happened.

To me, "Holocaust Revisionists" are trying to rationalize, justify, protect, and defend the policies of the Nazi Regime.

The individuals that try and connect the 9/11 Truth Movement with "Holocaust Deniers" are essentially trying to rationalize, justify, protect, and defend the polices of the Bush Regime.

Sound familiar?

If I were to compare the 9/11 Truth Movement to anything, it would be to the White Rose.

According to Wikipedia, the White Rose "was a non-violent resistance group in Nazi Germany, consisting of a number of students from the University of Munich and their philosophy professor. The group became known for an anonymous leaflet campaign, lasting from June 1942 until February 1943, that called for active opposition to German dictator Adolf Hitler's regime." [...] "Today, the members of the White Rose are honoured in Germany as some of its greatest heroes because they opposed the Third Reich in the face of almost certain death."

Great comparison.

After the war, many regarded them as traitors. But nowadays they are widely considered heroes. I certainly have nothing but the deepest respect and admiration for Sophie Scholl and all the members of the White Rose.

This passage from the Wikipedia entry demonstrates that especially young Germans admire them:

"In an extended German national TV competition held in the autumn of 2003 to choose 'the ten greatest Germans of all time' (ZDF TV), Germans under the age of 40 catapulted Hans and Sophie Scholl of the White Rose to fourth place, selecting them over Bach, Goethe, Gutenberg, Willy Brandt, Bismarck, and Albert Einstein. Not long before, young women readers of the mass-circulation magazine 'Brigitte' had voted Sophie Scholl to be 'the greatest woman of the twentieth century'."

And there's a brilliant German movie about Sophie Scholl which was Oscar nominated in 2006, called
Sophie Scholl - The Final Days. You can watch it with subtitles, it's really powerful.
