"Yes in World War two European goal all out Russian celebrate like nobody else huge parades fireworks the whole nine yards Americans don't really go all that crazy which is wild crazy considering that we think we are the ultimate not the kicker we help and sort of a bunch of other countries like France in the U. K. but our system we want we sure as hell I think we did sell the USSR did most of the dirty work but you might not know about because it's barely mentioned in any textbook don't forget what you learned in school here is we get a lot of attention today how Russia save the world from Nazism was really how the Soviet Union save the world from **** and that's the the title of it and that's the story that a lot of of leftist that you're hearing from now there's there's some degree of look there there's some degree of of truth in the in the story line that that the Soviets I mean there's every talking about just brute force in numbers the casualties yes it is the case that the Soviet Union took on the brunt of the **** war machine that is that is very real that is true but it is not the case that there was any moral clarity shown by the not either by the Soviets in this in this process it is not that we were on a similar moral ground to the Soviets when this all happened because a part of the history that you cannot skip over is the Molotov Ribbentrop pact back in nineteen thirty nine where for a period of what was it now almost two years of the **** and the Soviet Union caught up Europe into spheres of influence essentially divided up the carcass of Europe between them agreed not to fight each other and it was only because the **** turned on the USSR that then there was this massive Eastern Front that opened up **** Germany lead in Germany decided on its own on the twenty second of June nineteen forty one to go after the Soviets with operation Barbarossa now Stalin people said that Stalin knew that there was a possibility of invasion but it seemed so counter counter intuitive and so counterproductive that you can imagine the Soviets just refuse to believe that the the Germans would repeat the mistake of Napoleon and try a land war in Russia heading in the winter yeah I'd say not gonna finish off Russia interfered period of a few months wasn't gonna happen the Soviet Union so this story line that the that the Soviets were the ones that really really defeated the the **** is true they were very helpful in this process and when you when you look at and this is what I do think that kids need to be taught in school you look at the numbers in terms of troops on the Eastern Front verses the western front it is not even close in the Eastern Front the Soviets and the and the **** fighting each other was orders of magnitude larger than what you had on the western front that is that is a fact of but it is not because the Soviets had any moral or ethical problem to speak of with the **** and in fact the complete and utter disregard for life shown by the Soviets was in many ways similar to the depravity of the **** stated with the Soviets if you have not seen I I do recommend enemy at the gates which is a movie about Stalingrad some you're probably also tell me that I that do you want to are you would recommend hardcore history by Dan Carlin on Stalingrad and I agree with that I mean that the battle of Stalingrad is a is an incredible story and did involve millions of soldiers and really was the turning point in the war against against the **** now no one no one can really do the counterfactuals about what would have happened if the if the **** had not turned on the Soviets you know what with the American war machine eventually have overcome with with that with our allies overcome whatever the **** had quite possible I know a lot of you are amateur World War two historians are probably shouting out well but this and that and it's one of the most fastening periods in history because it really was truly a battle for civilization it was a battle for human liberty and dignity and and basic freedom the basic freedom of all mankind the Soviets were not on the right side of that because they were pro freedom the only reason the Soviets had to fight the **** was because the **** wanted to fight the Soviets because the the viciousness and of megalomania of the third Reich could not provide a power like the Soviet Union on their borders they just absolutely refused to think that there was a future in which they could live peaceably along side the the Soviets out so if you know when you when you hear people now talking about the you know it's especially to say today look there there's a degree of trolling here they're people that just want to upset those of us who are taking the day to commemorate the incredible missions on the day and what was done on you know Juno and gold in Oman these other these other beaches Utah we look at this and think about how it was in many ways not just a landing on the beach that brought about the end of the second World War but it was really in some ways those first steps on that beach where the was the beginning of a progression of American global leadership a kind of pox americana that yes would not go without disruption it's not like we didn't have the Soviet Union squaring off against us for decades but we we were not truly view global power until we took the reins of the second World War and and beat fascism and defeated the fascists in this time when there is this rise of of socialism in America there's also this revisionism that creeps up a little bit about how well if we're gonna talk about a delay we should really talk about how the Soviet Union which is still the the ultimate example I'm socialism in practice I know lives love to say what about Denmark you there was a one of us will have one of them are going to say that okay what about the squaring off of the United States and the Soviet Union in the twentieth century one one way of life embracing capitalism and one being the embodiments of the workers revolution and socialism and how that all work out are we really supposed to skip past that I yes and I were also supposed to skip past the atrocities of the Soviet Union and how the Soviets in in the final months of the second World War engaged in all kinds of terrible war crimes and what would now be considered human rights abuses I think the Soviets would would have thought that was a a queen to term and then locked hundreds of millions of people in the prison of Stalin's lunacy hundreds of millions of people had to suffer behind the the Iron Curtain because of what happened well because of the end of the second World War which was great to be defeated fascism in **** Germany but without America there there would have been no end to that long dark night it was America that provided some respite to the world if the if the Soviets let's just say had had on their own been able to defeat the **** and taken all of Europe the world would be a very different place now and I'm not sure would be much better than it would have been if the **** had been in charge member the Soviets liquidated many many millions of their own people starve their own people there's horrific anti semitism in the Soviet Union Stalin's purges nobody was really safe from them of the on on a on it your level of comparing morality this Soviet Union **** Germany were really not far apart and all but we now have some left this in this country and and certainly in in Europe and and Russia who will want to say that it was some kind of honorable decision for the Soviets to fight against the **** when the reality is the Soviets were buddies with the **** and the **** just turned on their allies and forced and forced to fight that would not have occurred forced us to be airforce rather the **** did more of the of the Soviets to fight back when they would've been quite happy quite happy sitting back and allowing the **** war machine to batter Britain into submission and and other were you boats off the coast the United States it's not like the **** weren't looking take us down to lot of stuff to keep in mind you we talked with the Soviet Union team they were not the good guys even if they beat the bad guys
