Very fine people on both sides
Good afternoon. We have now reached the U.S. Department of Defense commemorating the Battle of the Bulge with a colorized picture of a man who was obviously on the other side of the conflict stage of the Dumpocalypse.
Because the U.S. military posting pictures of a nazi wearing nazi bling as though he was a U.S. soldier isn’t quite nauseating enough, the picture is of Joachim Peiper, a nazi who ordered the deaths of 84 U.S. POWs.
The soldier who first called attention to the issue says he’s sure it’s a mistake.
Fickel’s screenshots showed that the images were shared earlier this morning on three official DoD-affiliated Facebook pages: U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), XVIII Airborne Corps, and 10th Mountain Division.
Fickel asserted that he immediately understood that the posts were a “mistake” when he saw the images. “A big mistake but it was a mistake,” he explained. “It was not intentional. I’m sure there was nothing bad intended. It was just an error in judgment. The military only wants to honor soldiers who fought in WWII.”
“I was really just frustrated that we made a mistake like that,” he added.
I’m sure some pinheaded stealth-fascists are giggling over their “mistake.”
