I am so sick of this fucking hogwash. This is probably the best example anyone could ever come up with of pure confirmation bias. It's what you want to hear, and because circumstance is favourable, you will keep on repeating it ad nauseam. If ratboy is guilty of anything, it is of the crime of expediency. Joining Hitler Youth was what everyone did at that time. If he was born in the Soviet bloc, he would have joined the Young Communists, and if he was born in England, he would have been a Boy Scout. So what? You are essentially implying that a child was fully capable of understanding Nazism and embracing it. What fucking deranged nonsense.
It's a broken record and you're dumb enough to put it back on the turntable.
If you want to repeat unsubstantiated hogwash because it suits your emotional needs, that's your problem. What's worse is that it's nonsense that keeps getting recycled, shot down and then recycled again. There is no diplomatic immunity here for nonsense which fits an agenda - wanting something you like to be "fact" does not automatically confer "fact" status to it. I expect more than hearsay, gossip and rumour, and I think most other folks here do too.
