Given that 74m Americans just voted for the appalling Trump, do you have
any even vaguely practical suggestions? I can't think of any.

I knew you weren't asking a serious question, just trolling. You moved
the goalposts from asking about "moral Germans", and received answers
you didn't like, to "acquiescence of the general populace" without
considering morals.

There are of course several books (requiring reading moviePig is
uninterested in) by Milton Mayer written 10 years after WWII, in which
he returned to Germany to interview ordinary Germans and their attitude
toward Nazism. The best known is They Thought They Were Free. Mayer does
not get into What did they know and when did they know it? accusations
for the most part.

Daniel Goldhagen wrote Hitler's Willing Executioners: Ordinary Germans
and the Holocaust (1996). It made quite a splash at the time; historians
raked it over the coals.

With two seconds of Googling, I came up with other articles that
ordinary Germans had some knowledge of what was going on.

Well, YEAHHHHH... Those that were murderous Anti-Semitic bigots WERE
those rebelling.

Look up 'the Good German'. Those were the ones who turned a blind eye
as the stink of burning corpses filled their nostrils and falling ash
fell like snow.

Does it have to be in English? Here's a comparatively recent one about
Sophie Scholl, the most famous member of the White Rose resistance
movement:

<https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0426578/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0>

One about the Edelweiss Pirates:

<https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0240473/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1>

And one about a lone wolf, Georg Elser:

<https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1708135/?ref_=kw_li_tt>

On the whole, though, the Nazis were extremely effective at targeting
opposition movements, their leaders, and even their rank and file. The
first people they killed (after culling perceived threats within their
own ranks) or sent to concentration camps were their political
opponents.

Valkyrie wasn't good enough for you?
A good movie, but the conspirators didn't seem to be motivated so much
by decency as by the pragmatic realization that Germany was going to
lose the war, and they wanted to sue for peace on the most favorable
possible terms.

Obviously I know the difference between a good movie and good history
- as a Canadian I am STILL massively outraged by Argo which gave all
the glory to the CIA and none at all to the Canadian diplomats without
whom the rescue couldn't have taken place - and even more so when they
got their Oscar that it was presented by the First Lady which is an
obvious sign Obama approved the "history". (Calling it "fake news"
would be generous)

But no question I'm also well aware the Valkyrie conspirators were at
least as driven by a desire to save their country's collective asses
as to bring peace and justice to Europe. (Or any other aims for that
matter)

As for "most favorable possible terms" who wouldn't seek those for
their country if they were in a position to do something about it?

That's a funny thing. We don't know how many voted for Trump. Reality
Winner is in prison because she leaked a document saying the Russians
hacked the voter rolls in 19 states. It's not much of a reach to say
they hacked the vote titles either. People really aren't being very
smart about the facts in evidence.

You're LYING. Fucking LYING. We HAVE vote totals, and there is near
ZERO evidence of any interference or fraud.

Joe Biden: 81,268,924 - Winner.
Donald Trump 74,216,154 - Loser.

What the fuck? What is it with you? CAN'T you tell the truth any more?
Are you physically or psychologically incapable of it?

I've already said I made a mistake? But the truth doesn't seem to
register to you.
But, then... when have you EVER cared about accuracy?

Notice how Dimwit, won't accept that I simply explained your latest
idiocy. You ever hear of 'WIRED"? They think you're a fucking moron too.

"Using capital letters to indicate strong feeling may be the most famous
example of typographical tone of voice. But there are different kinds of
strong feelings. Linguist Maria Heath asked a cross section of internet
users to rate the difference in emotion between a message in all caps
and the same message in standard capitalization. She found that all-cap
styling made people judge happy messages as even happier: “IT’S MY
BIRTHDAY!!!” feels happier than “It’s my birthday!!!” But it didn’t make
sad messages any sadder: “i miss u” is just as pathetic as “I MISS U.”
When it came to anger, the results were mixed: Sometimes caps increased
the anger rating and sometimes they didn’t, a result which Heath
attributed to the difference between “hot” anger (FIGHT ME) and “cold”
anger (“fight me”).

A single capped word, on the other hand, is simply EMPHATIC. Looking at
examples of all-capped words on Twitter, Heath found that the most
common single ones included NOT, ALL, YOU, and SO, as well as
advertising words like WIN and FREE: the same kinds of words that are
often emphasized in spoken conversations (or commercials). When we want
to emphasize something in speech, we often pronounce it louder, faster,
or higher in pitch—or all three at once. All caps is a typographic way
of conveying the same set of cues."

Duuuuhhhhh. Seems like everybody BUT you knows what individual words
capitalized means on Usenet.

Here, let me repeat, because I KNOW your attention span is that of an
addled gnat.

That's directly from WIRED.

When it comes to sourcing, Wired typically utilizes credible sources such as cadc.uscourts.gov, Associated Press, Military.com, New York Times, Bloomberg, and US News and World Report. Wired also publishes pro-science articles such as “The Complexity of Simply Searching For Medical Advice” and utilizes pro-science sources such as PubMed and the CDC.
Factual Reporting: HIGH
Failed Fact Checks: None to date
But, no... the Usenet Winner of Day wants to bask in his faded glory -
so go ahead! If that's what it takes to get your daily boner, I'm glad
to be of assistance.

Won't change the fact that you're a pathological (NewsMax lovin') liar.

Agreed. You clearly lack THE BALLS to take a stand on this. That's
gotta suck, even being an ANONYSHIT doesn't give you enough of a curtain
to hide behind. I'm guessing you're transgendered too but you're just
not telling us.

and that there's "no evidence of voter fraud",
Russian hacking is rather different than the voter fraud your fat lying
bastard buddy Trump was claiming. If you don't have the overall basic
intelligence to be in the discussion get the fuck out.


the moment someone points

I think it's very easy to conclude there is no way 73 million Americans
voted for that fat orange piece of dog shit. I'm going with about 65
million and a troll farm full of Russian hackers. Your welcome to your
opinion, though, however fucking worthless it may be. Do you even have
the fucking BALLS to have an actual opinion?

Thin edge of the liberal gun-banning wedge. Deprive 60 MILLION gun owners of the RIGHTS because the odd loon. i've spoken to NRA people, They've no problem with wait periods OR background checks EXCEPT they know the libs would just use it as a stepping stone to much stronger gun control and bans on specific weapons. IF the libs would stipulate wait periods and background checks would be all they wanted to prevent these kinds of things and nothing else, then progress i preventing these shootings could begin.

They post that same article every time this happens, don't they?

Which is fitting, since Congress goes through the same motions every
time.

The repetitions is like "Groundhog Day", but at least in that movie Bill
Murray learned something each time through. We have no Bill Murray, no
one is getting better.
