We need to have the difficult conversations… later

In Lithuania, later never comes. It is never intended to come. This is a slick ploy only for the gullible.

After regaining independence, Chairman of the State, Vytautus Landsbergis, created a Commission to “rehabilitate” Lithuanians, no matter what their deeds. There was barely any facade of hiding the pervasive effort to scrub the record of Holocaust perpetrators. Landsbergis, himself the son of a Holocaust perpetrator father, and a rescuer mother, vigorously denied the process was a sham.

This was a precursor to today’s Palestinian program of “Slay and Pay” where murderers become martyrs and heroes, and receive lifetime government pensions for their service to the state.

In the modern state, Nazi talking points were resurrected identifying Jews as Communists, and thus validating their murder. These talking points are still in current use as reflected in this November 26, 2021 conversation with the Official Twitter Account of the Permanent Representation of the Republic of Lithuania to the International Organizations in Vienna.

This New York Times article of June 5, 1943 shows that he was neither anti-Nazi, nor anti-Communist, he was just a Lithuanian nationalist. Exactly what he represented himself to be. His nationalism became a threat to Nazi power which thus led to his confinement.........
