Description

There’s a reason the History Channel has produced hundreds of documentaries about Hitler but only a few about Dwight D. Eisenhower. Bad guys (and gals) are eternally fascinating. Behind the Bastards dives in past the Cliffs Notes of the worst humans in history and exposes the bizarre realities of their lives. Listeners will learn about the young adult novels that helped Hitler form his monstrous ideology, the founder of Blackwater’s insane quest to build his own Air Force, the bizarre lives of the sons and daughters of dictators and Saddam Hussein’s side career as a trashy romance novelist.

blaming the communist for not wanting to work with the social democrats when the social democrats had teamed up with the far right freikorps to murder tons of german socialists in 1919 and 1920 is disappointing. expect better from robert

But isn't it all just talk unless you actually disconnect from Facebook? and anything that might just give Zuckerberg more money? like Instagram or WhatsApp? Love the app

Look, i loved this episode, but I really cant stomach this kind of paternalistic tone y´all take some time when talking about these monsters. Like they were these young, innocent, poor wide-eyed kids that were indoctrinated by the evil US, as if these officers were empty vessels where one my input whatever ideology they like and have it take hold of their personalities. Latin America has a long and deep history of oppression, racism and totalitarian regimes that extends well before the school of the americas. Sure, these guys were manipulated into serving the interests of the US, but the hatred for the dissposed, the indigenous people, the blacks, the poor, the socialists, was already there.

if u gonna train a foreign army you would want your equipment and ammo to be sort of streamlined. mixed system armies r a joke. of course there is a profit motive to this. FN rifles and BMP s didn't get dropped off for free.

Bless you for addressing the Nakba, even tepidly. I'll withhold judgement until the end of the series but if you end up alienating the liberal Zionists, fucking good riddance to bad rubbish.

Hey Castbox fuckfaces, keep erasing my comments and I'll just make more. Every time you enable fascists by erasing the words of someone who challenges their hateful rhetoric you tip your hand a little more, and every time it encourages me to go harder. if you want to shut me down you're going to have to pay somebody 40 hours a week to do it.
