HAD THE WHITES WON THE GREAT CIVIL WAR IN RUSSIA, WOULD HITLER HAVE COME TO POWER IN GERMANY?
Many Germans supported Nazis versus Socialists and Communists under the environment of the rise of fascism/nazism as a response to the rise of communism in Europe and across the world.
This question indeed qualifies for a very strange interpretation and vision of the history of Communism and Nazism. Reads like complete illiteracy or premeditated misrepresentation.
According to Lenin, the theoretical sources of Marxism are classical German philosophy, classical English political economy, and French utopian socialism. The direct predecessors who made the greatest impact on the philosophical views of Marx and Engels were Hegel and Feuerbach. In other words, Communism was born in Europe and raised in Britain, Germany, and France.
In Italy, the rise of Fascism was associated with Italian extreme nationalism.
In Germany, the rise of the Nazi party was the immediate reaction to the humiliating conditions of the Armistice agreement which pulverized Germany and the German economy.
How did the Germans sign the Treaty of Versailles? The German delegation initially refused to sign the peace treaty due to its ultimatum character. Germany proposed a number of changes to the document (by the way, not of a principled nature at all). Proposals had to be made in writing because Germans were not allowed into the room where negotiations were taking place.
The Entente countries rejected all the changes proposed by the delegation of the Weimar Republic, except for a few minor points, like the holding of a referendum in Upper Silesia. And in response to the Germans’ refusal to sign the treaty, they threatened to occupy the whole of Germany, giving the Germans five days to think about it. What a turnaround this frame shows!
The leaders of Russia’s would-be communist party were offered political asylum in Great Britain; 4 out of 6 communist rallies of the Russian revolutionaries (Congresses) were held in London including the crucial II Congress when the anti-Russia revolutionaries split into Majority (the Bolsheviks) and Minority (the Mensheviks) factions of the Russian Social Democratic Workers Party. Karl Marx was buried in London. Lenin lived and prepared for the world communist revolution in London.
In other words, Communist Bolshevism was nurtured in Britain.
The 2nd Congress of the Russian Social Democratic Labor Pary
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the Civil War in Russia culminating with the exodus of General Wrangel’s White Guards Army from the Crimea… During this time at least five generations have completely come and gone; therefore, it is absurd to talk about the conflict between the Reds and Whites, today. Those people died a long time ago, whereas artificially created images continue to do their work in their place…
The leaders of the White Guards were supporters of the February Revolution, the Bolsheviks were supporters of the October Revolution. It was a war between two revolutionary forces represented by the Liberal & Bourgeois, and the Communist segments of Russia’s Coup D’Etat of 1917. The former relied on the Entente and British money whereas the latter fell back on the Workers’ Party International and German money. The Russian people themselves were destined to be losers in either outcome of the Great Civil War, caught between the hammer and the anvil.
France allocated 100 million francs for the maintenance of the “White” forces of Southern Russia, and Great Britain provided Admiral Kolchak with more than 50 million pounds sterling for combat operations in Siberia. In the summer of 1919, a joint meeting was held in Omsk between Admiral Kolchak and the Allied envoy Elliott, U.S. Ambassador to Japan Morris, Generals Knox (England), Janen (France), Graves (USA), Mtsushima (Japan), and the French Commissioner Martel, during which an agreement was reached on supplying the “White Army” with arms and ammunition. There are lines from a June 1919 letter from British General A. Knox to Admiral A. Kolchak stating that “after mid-December 1918, every rifle cartridge was of British manufacture, brought to Vladivostok on British ships and delivered to Omsk under British guard.”
As for Russia, the Great Civil War was a huge tragedy resulting from the consequence of the godless February (and not October) Revolution of 1917. In fact, in this war, the country was divided into two camps. And both of these camps fought for some other interests but not for the interests of the Russian people.
The Bolsheviks fought for “social justice” without God. The paradox was that they did not want to be with God, but God was with the Bolsheviks and gave them victory over the White Guards. And the Russian people, in their majority, in a naive way, saw the greatest deceitfulness of the “White Cause,” and supported the Bolsheviks. Generals, officers, and military specialists, who had come out of the crucible of World War I, were distributed in roughly equal numbers between the Red and White armies on the battlefields of the Civil War.
The “Whites”, under the guise of “Christianity”, fought for the “Constituent Assembly”, and for the interests of the oligarchs and the Western coalition, but not for the “Russian Cause”. Thus, the “White Cause”, as well as the “Red Cause” has never been a “Russian Cause,” and much less a Christian Cause.
In July 1919, Winston Churchill said, “I am often asked, ‘Why do we support Admiral Kolchak and General Denikin? They formed an army at our instructions and, no doubt, largely with our money.” Churchill also wrote, “The Russian White Guards fought for our cause. This truth will become unpleasantly sensitive the moment the White armies are destroyed and the Bolsheviks establish their domination over the whole of the immense Russian Empire.”
British diplomatic representative to the RSFSR R. Lockhart in his book “Storm over Russia” wrote, “The Allies are also to blame for the civil war … Our policy has contributed to the increase in terror and bloodshed. From these testimonies we can draw only one conclusion: the warriors of the “White Army” had nothing to do with the Russian “Christian soldiers”, because, in fact, they fought for the interests of the “British crown” and “Wall Street”.
Doctor of History Pavel Golub in his article “The Great Lie about the Red and White Terror in the Era of the Great October Revolution and the Civil War” wrote, “… November 18, 1918, with the direct participation of the British battalion under Lieutenant Colonel Ward, in Omsk, Admiral Kolchak was seated in the chair of “Supreme Ruler” of Russia. “Socialists”, who had faithfully served the Allies, were subjected to such a rout that only a few managed to escape from Siberia. The majority ended up in Kolchak’s meat grinder, from which few got out alive…..”
During 1918–1920, the “Allies” deployed their interventionist armada to Russia with a total strength accounting for more than 850,000 men and officers, and that included 140,000 British; 140,000 French; 175,000 Japanese (according to revised data); and 14,000 American soldiers. If adding at least 280 thousand Austro-German invaders, the total number of interventionists will exceed 1 million people.
Had the “Whites” won the civil war, the number of victims of the subsequent “White terror” might have been much greater than from the terror of the “Reds.”
Historians have counted more than 50,000 victims of the “Red Terror” in the Crimea. But according to the contemporary historian A.I. Fursov about 75 thousand people became victims of Kolchak’s “White Terror” in Siberia. Historian Pavel Golub wrote about 25 thousand victims. The Crimean terror of the “Reds” is quite equivalent to the Siberian terror of the “Whites”.
“Why blame the mirror?” “The “Red Terror” was merely a consequence of the “White Terror.
Generals Alexeyev, Denikin, Kornilov, Romanovsky, Drozdovsky, Slaschev, Markov, Kaledin, Wrangel, and also generals Krasnov, Turkul, Shkuro and Vlasov, who joined Hitler, were in no way heroes of the Russian people. However, to be fair, it should be noted that in the ranks of the “Red Army” there were plenty of idealists. Many of them subsequently ended their lives at firing ranges or in the Gulag.
The “White” generals had never realized the most simple truth: the “Collective West” was never an ally of Russia and never will be. But the fact that this “West” has been opposed to the rebirth of a free and great Russia by all means, for centuries, especially in the past century, is especially evident these days.
The attempted occupation of Russia by the “White Warriors” and the “Collective West” was focused on building a new “Babylonian civilization.”
The use of Hitler’s National Socialism by the Western Powers in the 1920s — 1930s periods, is another story.
