Do you know who this is?

Hat tip: Mercury a friend on Facebook.

"I saw this posted on a friend's page and I thought I'd like to share it with you guys. Do you see this lady? You, more than likely, have no idea who she is. Her name was Irena Sendler. She died May 12, 2008 in Warsaw, Poland

During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a plumbing/sewer specialist. But she had an 'ulterior motive'. With Irena being German, she KNEW what the
Nazi's plans were for the Jews.

Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried. She also had a burlap sack in the back of her truck for the larger kids. She had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers of course wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.

During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants. Eventually she was caught, and the Nazi's broke both her legs, and arms, and beat her severely.

Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept them in a glass jar, buried under a tree in her back yard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived it and reunited the family. Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.

In 2007, Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize.

She was not selected. Who did win that year?

A man by the name of Al Gore, for a slideshow on "Global Warming".

Who won it in 2009?

President Barack Obama, "for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples."

I'm sure you guys have heard this story before, but maybe didn't have a face to put with it. Now you do. I just find it incredibly sad that the priorities of this world are so out of whack that the truly heroic, the true humanitarians among us are overlooked when it comes time for their just dues. Apparently the "World" hates Jews so much that amazing stories of courage, valor, and staring death in the face on behalf of God's people, takes a back seat to two of the biggest phonies that have ever hit the world's stage. 0bama and Gore embarrasses me, and I don't claim them as fellow Americans."

I don't know about the rest of you but this is really a disgrace. I fully agree with my friend's commentary on the subject.

This woman was brave beyond measure, she knew that if she were caught she would be tortured but continued to defy the Nazi Regime to save all those innocent children. 

It makes me sick that the president not only supports infanticide but is quite vocal in supporting an organization that makes over a billion dollars a year by executing the innocent in the womb.

He or Gore should be ashamed for accepting such a prestigious, well, it used to be a prestigious reward, now it's all political and disgusting.

Not long ago, I watched a DVD about Irena Sendler. I'm not sure how available that DVD is now, however.

dmarks said...

Question: Obama has lost hundreds of thousands more jobs than he has created. We are still deep in the unemployment hole he created. You really need to let go of this racist chip on your shoulder. None of the criticism directed at Obama by Leticia etc has anything to do with his race. Other blogs might do that, but not this one.

I don't know what your last sentence was, but it was probably aimed at American Jews and it did look antisemitic.

Malcolm X was indeed right: before the Nation of Islam had him assassinated, he had progressed and rejected the racism he was famous for, and, apparently, you admire him for.

And you are clearly a racist because you use the "cracker" word. This makes you sound like a member of the New BlacKKK Panthers. Once again, the only racism on this blog is coming from you and Eezzee.

As for me, I will call it as I see it. I will criticize Mr Obama as I have done any other politician (most of whom have been white due to demographics) I will not do as you demand: give Obama a free pass due to his skin color. Race matters... only to racists, and I am not one.

Silverfiddle said...

As to the second commenter: What a disgrace that you use Dr. King's image on such a hateful, childish and vulgar diaper rash rant. You are an ignorant fool.

Leticia expressed no hate against President Obama. She merely pointed out his pro-abortion stance, which includes allowing babies who survive an abortion to be left to die. Yes, Obama voted for that in the Illinois Senate, and not only that, he gave an impassioned speech in favor of it on the Senate floor.

What would MLK do? He sure as hell wouldn't do that.


FreeThinke said...

That woman was drop dead gorgeous. Reminds me a great deal of Ingrid Bergman, only Sendler was even better looking. A shame such a lovely creature was trapped in such horrible circumstances -- as was every man, woman and child in Europe and Great Britain -- but wonderful she had the fine character to do what she did.

Beauty is as beauty does. I'd be interested to learn what she did in later years. I hope she was happy in love and enjoyed peace and contentment.

Are there any pictures of her in old age? I'd be interested in seeing them.

Silverfiddle said...

Leticia: Thank you for this story. As others have said, one more reason the Nobel Peace Price isn't worth a bucket of warm spit.

Why haven't we heard this woman's story? It would make a great movie.

FreeThinke said...

SilverFiddle and D. Marks,

Why waste time and emotional energy addressing trolls who post standard, boilerplate hate rhetoric that makes no attempt whatsoever to address the topic at hand?

After fifteen years of website interaction I can spot these types from miles away. The STENCH gives them away every single time.

This character is a SPAMMER and belongs in the filter designed to winnow out such influences.

FreeThinke said...

Hi, Leticia!

I should have thanked you first for publishing this great material, instead of reacting ro others right off the bat.

I hope you agree that late is better than never?

A Joyous Christmas Season to you and yours!

The Nobel Prizes are (and they do not hide the fact) the opinion of the committee and that it can do so to send a message. They say that they look at the subject from an overal and global view.

Though I think Sendler is a saint in every aspect, but she had no chance to win a nomination at any time as it would set a precedent in regards to the other heroes of that horrible time. If they gave a Prize to all of them collectively that could have worked.

Personally I dot believe that Obama deserved the prize but I see the argument that it is the change and what he stood for that got it, not himself per se.

However, I will disagree that Al Gore and the Climate Change group did deserve the Prize.

dmarks,

I wonder if the guy is just cut and pasting his rant in bulk....

Interesting though, and this is not a go at you, but I do not agree with your phrase "Obama has lost hundreds of thousands more jobs than he has created. We are still deep in the unemployment hole he created".

We all know the history and the effects of the previous eight years (no this is not a Bush bash) and I do not see a hole as the rate is dropping and is now lower than it was in 2008 when he started - which again points the finger to the previous administration. We could only argue that if he was responsible for Fanny Mae and the Banks and he certainly was not. It could be argued that he is not making things worse (and he will say it is now improving). I think we need another year before we can argue against his policies with strength and then the only one that is valid is that he could have done a better job.

Cheers

Leticia: Back to the subject of the post, one of these is worth a thousand "community organizers".

Right Truth said...

I posted this a while back, I had never heard of her prior to that. What a shame people like Gore, Obama, get the awards when deserving people like this don't.

dmarks said...

Debbie: Gore invented the Internet. He said so himself, and politicians never lie. So of course he deserved it.

Leticia said...

Carol, she was truly a courageous woman. I don't even think I could have been as brave.

The Question Man... I think you need some serious help. Anger management could be a nice start for you. I don't know if I should pity you, but I am going to pray for you. No one should live with so much anger and hostility.

AOW, I saw some footage on the History Channel and it broke my heart what they did to this woman. A true heroine in any time.

dmarks, thank you for that, you made my day! On your second commentary, I agree wholeheartedly.

Silver, ABSOLUTELY correct, my friend.

Free Thinke, that's a good question to research. I wonder if she even survived? Thanks, I am going to research her her history. There has to be more, a lot more. She truly was a lovely woman. Aww.. your are so kind and you are welcome. Merry Christmas to you and all of your loved ones.

DC, well, at least we agree on something. *smile* That's great.

Debbie, this one lady we shouldn't allow history to forget. She is an inspiration to us all.

dmarks said...

Leticia: Question Man is like a human cartoon. There is a huge contrast between his racist speech, and that of Dr. King, whose icon he has chosen to illustrate himself with.

Well, I suppose Martin Luther King's visage isn't copyrighted, and if it appears here in such an appropriate way, it is only a matter of time before it appears on lipgloss containers and iPhone cases.

In "Strength to Love" (1963) Dr King said:

"Hatred and bitterness can never cure the disease of fear; only love can do that. Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it."

Nothing like calling everyone "brain-dead slimy redneck dickheads" to be found.

dmarks said...

And I can also add Dr King's statement:

"We cannot be truly Christian people so long as we flaunt the central teachings of Jesus: brotherly love and the Golden Rule".

Not much Golden Rule to be found in smearing everyone as "racists, bigots, extremists, homophobes....brain-dead slimy redneck dickheads....KLANSMAN F*CKTARDS.....asshole racists"

Honestly, he needs Sam Kinnison's or Andrew Dice Clay's icon, instead of Dr. King's. The contrast between "Question Man" and the great Reverend is similar to that if Lindsey Lohan had a blog and used Mother Teresa as the picture.

Shaw Kenawe said...

"Apparently the "World" hates Jews so much that amazing stories of courage, valor, and staring death in the face on behalf of God's people, takes a back seat to two of the biggest phonies that have ever hit the world's stage."

The "World" does not decide on who will receive the NPP. According to Nobel's will, the Peace Prize shall be awarded to the person[s] who "shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses."

Alfred Nobel's will further specified that the prize be awarded by a committee of five people chosen by the Norwegian Parliament.

You claim that the "World" hates Jews because the NPP was not awarded to this brave woman is absurd and completely wrong.



Letitia: "0bama and Gore embarrass[es] me, and I don't claim them as fellow Americans."

I'm sure they're both devastated over your feelings. However, somehow these two men will manage to go on with their lives.

Jersey McJones said...

President Obama supports infanticide???

Wow. I must've missed that tremendous news!

Leticia said...

dmarks, Dr. King would have never spoken in such a vile and uneducated manner. It's a shame how horribly Question Man misinterpreted him. Sad.

Shaw, you are actually quoting my friend, not mine. I believe he made some valid points. Except maybe about the world hating Jews, some people do some people don't. And I still believe NPP is a joke now. And not a big deal.

Jersey, yes, he does. Research his support of abortion, aka infanticide. Remember what he said if one of his daughters, if they ever got pregnant. He viewed it as a punishment. And this is when they were quite young. I only brought that up, because this brave woman risked her life to save babies and we have president that wants them aborted. So, bac

Leticia said...

Ooops! My son hugged me and made click "enter" before I finished my thought. Anyhoo, meant to say, back to my original post about this courageous woman of valor.

Always On Watch said...

Some time back, I mentioned Irena Sendler's name to my homeschool students. All of the students and their parents knew her story! I wonder if public school students know her name?

Leticia said...

AOW, I doubt it. Most public schools want to deny the Holocaust.

jez said...

Most public schools want to deny the Holocaust.

really? surely you exaggerate!

Silverfiddle said...

Jersey: Yes. Obama supported leaving babies to die who had survived a botched abortion:

Read some news and remove your veil of ignorance.

From WaPo:

The anti-Obama claims from Huckabee and Ohden refer to a series of Illinois bills known as the Born Alive Infant Protection acts, which would have defined the term “born alive infant” as “any member of the species homo sapiens” expelled or extracted from his or her mother that exhibits “a beating heart, pulsation of the umbilical cord, or definite movement of voluntary muscles.”

It takes a cold-hearted bastard to oppose such language.

Obama took issue with that part of the bill, saying it could interfere with a woman’s right to an abortion, as established through the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. Here is an excerpt of his remarks from the 2001 floor debate:

“Number one, whenever we define a previable fetus as a person that is protected by the equal protection clause or the other elements in the Constitution, what we’re really saying is, in fact, that they are persons that are entitled to the kinds of protections that would be provided to a child, a nine-month-old child that was delivered to term. That determination then, essentially, if it was accepted by a court, would forbid abortions to take place. I mean, it would essentially bar abortions, because the equal protection clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an antiabortion statute.”


WaPo called these remarks splitting hairs, and his subsequent remarks tendentious.

Leticia said...

Jez, I am not kidding. I was researching it, and it's a sad and horrid reality. I had to teach my boys about Hitler was, when they did special on the History channel and military channel. They had no idea. I didn't show them in any graphic pictures, but told them what the did to the Jews and Christians or anyone that stood against Hitler.

Jersey, excellent commentary. I don't understand how people can deny his stance. He is a huge supporter of abortion. He's never hid that fact.

dmarks said...

Silver: The people being discussed that Obama wanted/wants killed are not fetuses. They are infants. They are also legally in every way citizens of the United States. To allow them to fall victim to the blood-lust and violent desires of abortion "doctors" also violates due process and other matters of civil liberties.

Obams's view on this is rather extreme. Former Sen. Russ Feingold of Wisconsin is also an extremist on this, but was much more vocal in his support of abortion "doctors" acting as judge, jury, and executioner as they go after young infants.
