    Do you think Rachel is a liar?

    If I trusted what the internet says about the Duce I would not like him, and would simply see him as a wretched sinner whose soul I pray Rosaries and receive holy Communion for.

    I found him as a spirit-person and friend to be quite a new creation, a butterfly, but then I read a book by his wife and realized he was a good person despite his faults even as a caterpillar.

    This thread is a collection of everything I underlined in that book. I'm going back and re-reading everything.

    This will be a long thread that will not end for quite some time.

    Regarding the mustard gas, I don't sleep well at night knowing it is killing children and I sanction it. When losing sleep over it, i remind myself of what Genghis Kahn said about a Warlord saves lives in an enemy city when he does whatever he can to frighten the city into surrendering without a fight.

    The great Kahn wiped out 10% of the world's population to unite warring tribes, outlaw torture, create better health-care, roads, postal services, religious freedom, harmony between Christians, Muslims, Jews, and Pagans. He put an end to jihads, crusades, burning heretics at the stake, stoning adulterers, religious laws calling for amputation of limbs for theft, and much other madness of the times..I think of how after his death there was 100 years of peace and harmony for an Empire that covered 40% of the world. These were places plagued with incessant violence and many diverse ethnicities and Religions for the first time existing in harmony. Thank you great Kahn, for that makes me sleepy like a newborn.
    --Benito Mussolini

    Mussolini put troops on the border with Austria which temporarily halted Hitler's invasion. Then Hitler responded with a threat if Italy intervened.

    After the fall of France and Great Britain's military in shambles, Hitler knew the British were defeated, but like Napoleon knew he couldn't cross the English channel.

    We must do all we can to avoid war, but I have seen German military might. Italy will be invaded and sacked. If you think I'm going to side with the French and English weaklings, you're mistaken. They should have reacted when I had my troops on Austria's border.
    --Benito Mussolini to his wife Rachele

    No one but my husband's incessant calls, letters, and work with Attolico got Hitler to postpone his invasion of Czechoslovakia. God will not bless my book if I am dishonest, so I'm embarrassed to say how long it was postponed, but my husband was the only being on the face of the Earth to postpone it nonetheless.
    --Rachele Mussolini

    I'll not whitewash him. I often loathed his behavior, like when he returned home drunk and broke the china, dishes, mirror, everything, while we were poor and barely getting by. He threatened to kill me... My husband didn't ask me to Marry him, he told me. When my mother objected he pulled a gun on her. He refused to
    listen to my warnings about how he should not look up to Napoleon as a hero, and that a family man is superior to a Caesar.

    I begged in vain for him to stop returning home bloody from his fencing and sword duelling hobbies. My blood boiled when he would bring his mistresses to our home or to read some of
    the thousands of married women writing
    or the fantasies young girls had of the Duce. I warned Clara she would get killed if she didn't leave my husband alone. After reading her Diary, I knew that was not my husband she was talking about, and feel no sorrow for her.
    The Duce told her I was his only love, and she resented this. She knew her Diary would be read and published, so she decided to write falsehoods, like she was some martyr in the hands of a monster. The world will take her Diary as being factual and reject the words of his widow who knew him since he was seven.
    --Rachele Mussolini

    I was Benito's 007 agent refusing to be seen in public with him so I could spy on the King, the Generals, and the "Fascists" my husband trusted. Many of these people wanted my husband out of power after 20 years of the Duce who was not showing the same strength mentally or physically, and when I told my husband about people who wanted him gone, he said he didn't have the evidence to prosecute.
    I can give a list of political opponents who my husband let walk to provide for their families.

    My husband had a great fault. He was too kind. My children used to joke that there would be a coup to put me into power. I would actually been a Dictator and punished some of these people.
    --Rachele Mussolini

    Our men did poorly in Greece because my husband didn't like the fact that we were attacking Greece, and right off the bat he saw one of our planes crash. He told me, "I'm a firm believer that what starts off bad will end bad. We will some day pay dearly for siding with someone who lays waste to devoutly Catholic countries like Poland".

    The Germans fighting communists were known to say things like, "Greece must have been powerful to have you Italians earn the reputation for surrendering and retreating without firing a shot." The Italians who remained in German ranks after september 8, 1943 were asked why. They responded, "we want to kill communists".
    Rachel Mussolini

    Nazis stopped making fun of the dark Italians who weren't part of Hitler's master race. They wrote "the men fighting the Partisans aren't what the press says. They fight magnificent in combat, will jump on a grenade to save their comrades, and treat dying in battle like it's being martyred for the Pope."
    Rachel Mussolini

    Italian soldiers were famous for complaining bitterly that unlike Protestant Germany, Fascists "feel guilty killing people with Rosaries, scapulars, and priests on the field giving dead "enemies" final Viaticum".

    Both Pope's during Hitler's reign did not approve of Hitler. These Soviets on the other hand are Devils. We had reason to fight Ethiopia. We fought to protect Italian settlers in Libya. We volunteered in Spain because the Pope supported Franco by calling his regime "a crusade against the spread of Communism". We had no reason to fight in Greece.
    Rachel Mussolini

    The foreign press commented freely about Italian soldiers tearing out people's teeth, using prisoners as target practice, burning people alive, women taken as sex slaves, treating enemy diseases and wounds with hot metal, and kicking dirt and sand into the wounds of prisoners. I can't say for sure, but what I can say is that I repeatedly heard my husband tell troops to avoid being cruel to enemies and he would lament to me about how the Germans treated innocent people who are simply defending their homelands.
    Rachel Mussolini

    Italians weren't innocent, and my husband should not have agreed to the request of officers to secure a more quick victory against Ethiopian forces by the use of mustard gas. I told my husband war should be fought with swords, bayonets, or guns, and that gas, which resembles ghosts and phantoms choking to death entire regiments, is the way a coward fights. The Duce responded, "my men arent interested in being heroes. They know it's a cowardly way to fight. They are more concerned about getting those boys home alive".
    Rachel Mussolini


    They want vengeance against the Solomonic dynasty for their Russian and French backed Empire sending 15,000 Italians home in body bags in 1895,and held accountable for the killings in 1934. My men don't want to go home dead as heroes, but rather fight like this, insisting I use unfair methods that cause the enemies to give up without meeting them on the battlefield."
    Rachel Mussolini

    The French and British complain that I use mustard gas as if they don't have a plank in their own eye. Mustard gas attacks were the very methods that the civilized French and British used against the Germans in World War 1 and they used it more than I do against a less hateful and cruel enemy. The way the Ethiopians enslave and treat their own people is worse than what I'm doing.
    Benito Mussolini

    What if the Solomonic dynasty could drop mustard gas from the sky on our cities. They would love to see every Roman Catholic choke on mustard gas.
    Benito Mussolini

    "I don't like doing this. Gandhi showed up half-naked with a goat and left the biggest impression on me who has always admired simplicity and poverty of spirit. I haven't had a visitor so worthy of admiration. That Indian Nationalist conquers his country peacefully with a bloodless transfer of power , defeating the British Empire with nonviolence. Reminds me of my peaceful conquest of Rome and dismantling Democracy. Now I have broken my reputation of being like Gandhi and doing so without bloodshed.
    --Benito Mussolini

    He spoke so highly of me. I shudder to think of what he might think now. We look like bullies. I prefer to see us as slave-abolitionists.
    Benito Mussolini



    On the other hand, the mustard gas probably is saving enemy lives because it's getting them to surrender. If they were inflicting casualties on us, it motivates them to fight. When they simply see that all Italians have to do is drop liquid from the skies, they lose enough morale to give up.
    Benito Mussolini

    We have had entire armies surrender because someone had a sore throat and another had a blister, and pretty soon everyone blamed their affliction on mustard gas and came flocking like a spastic herd of spooked Buffalo to surrender and receive Italian medical care. So certain were they of gas attacks they displayed all sorts of symptoms and hysteria. It never came near them. This isn't warfare anymore. There are no longer heroes.
    --Benito Mussolini

    The enemy soldiers are flocking to my men with their hands up to surrender and even prostrating and kissing the boots of their captors. These are armies of an Empire strong as a European military on the field. They defeated Italy in war recently in our nation's history and they did so quickly.

    The French and Russians who armed this violent, brutal, dishonest Empire that boasts of being Jewish have no clue. they shoot anyone who wants to enter and get a peak to verify their proud boast of having the Ark of the old covenant. If I really wanted to be disrespectful, I'd satisfy my curiosity by telling my men to use military force on the location where the Ark is kept. But I remember how many people were killed by the Ark in Scripture, and would rather not risk that. I also believe we should respect items Christians hold as sacred, and Ethiopians treat that Ark as their most sacred pride and joy. Every Church seems to have some replica of it.

    Rachel, Ethiopia has always fascinated me. which is why I'm happy to say that the land where the Ark allegedly settles, and the tribe of Judah which the Messiah, King David, Solomon, and the King's of Israel came from, is where I am first recognized finally finally as having an Empire. That officially makes me an Emperor. An Emperor of an Italian Empire is technically a Caesar. It's official. Italy has an Empire. Now we can compete with the British.
    --Mussolini

    This Empire claims to have a King who is descended from Solomon, claims everyone to be racially inferior, brainwashes their children into believing Catholics pray to the Devil, and treats their own people in ways that it would be illegal to treat a dog in Italy. This is not a poor third world military armed with spears, but a real well-armed savage group of trouble makers who mistreat neighboring countries, persecute Catholics, and embrace the ugliest forms of racism.
    Benito Mussolini

    I can't verify it, but in their last war with us, at least according to the testimony of our troops who pressured me into this conquest (to avenge their dead comradest) they starved, tortured, and tormented defeated soldiers into committing suicide, made the prisoners dig their own graves, and treated us worse than they treated their own slaves, which is some of what sent us running home humiliated. All of Europe laughed at us.
    Benito Mussolini

    I have met Italians who are paralyzed , disfigured ,or have amputated limbs, and feel it was all in vain. It was an Anti-catholic war on Russia's end, because Ethiopia has a high Ethiopian Orthodox community, and the Russian Orthodox Empire wanted to see Papists defeated and humiliated. As the Pope's "man of Providence" I have raised the banner of the Papacy higher than our Saints , and succeeded where Don Bosco and many other Saints failed. The Russian Orthodox Church hates me as bad as the Russian communists
    Benito Mussolini

    I made Saint Francis of Assisi patron Saint of Italy. He's my favorite Saint. I can't be all bad.
    --Benito Mussolini

    These so called Israelites who lead the nation of Ethiopia hate us worse than the Russians. The whole world is asking, "why did Mussolini attack Ethiopia?" My attack on Ethiopia is also a conflict with Russia. It is a holy crusade in response to the Russian Orthodox Church's hand in our defeat. No doubt God allows Communism to dominate Russia to show his displeasure with their corrupt Church.
    --Benito Mussolini

    I love to listen to the Hypocritical British cry over me doing what is not a fraction of what they are guilty of. Im also in Ethiopia to have revenge with our leftist enemy France who gave arms to our enemies, where all my enemies flee to. Europeans will now respect us rather than laugh and mock. Now Italy has an Empire.
    --Benito Mussolini


    With Ethiopia taken my son, I can actually say there is a Roman Empire. No need to have a larger Empire. My dream was to Ressurrect the Roman Empire. We have done so, regardless of how cute it is

    Meanwhile, they shed blood over who gets the next throne, and if an Italian treated a dog the way Ethiopians treat their own enslaved, starving, ignorant, and brainwashed people, they would be arrested.
    --Benito Mussolini

    I have one of their captured flags and it is one of my favorite possessions. I love the lion of Judah on it. The Christ I worship is the lion of Judah, not the pacifist lamb. I am a Leo (Lion) according astrology, and proud enough to not correct people who mistakenly believe the quote "better to be a lion for 1 day than a lamb for a 100 years" was originally mine. I'm happy to not correct a lot of ignorant things people attribute to me. I value honesty, but the press has freedom to attribute false quotes to me and do so all the time without correction. As long as it is good for the regime.
    --. Benito Mussolini





    Claims of Italians taking young virgins away as sex-slaves, ripping people's teeth out, using babies for target practice, burning prisoners, and this claim that there was a big Italian cover-up of war-crimes were claims of pathologic liars, which is why I would have loved to see them find these vicious Italians and try them as war criminals. They could not find sufficient evidence to hang a single Italian for such behavior. I write this book with the far-fetched hope that one day there will be one documentary about Fascist Italy and the Duce that is somewhat accurate.
    My husband spoke against the scorched Earth policies and cruelty of the Germans. He urged Italians to be humane as possible, because after the war there would be a "United States of Europe, an anti Bolshevik block where we would seek friendship with our current enemies and need to work hand-in-hand with them to fight the Soviet Union.

    There wasn't an Italian executed as a war criminal. Blaming my husband for the fleeing Jews that were shipped back to Germany is wrong. Benito and I formed a plan to please Germans by putting anti-Semitic laws into writing while doing what we could to not see this enforced. We could not announce it to all and make something secret so obvious. We couldn't say "Don't enforce this" to everyone. We secretly worked with the Vatican to get Jews to safety and make light of the anti-Semitic laws not being enforced. The laws we instituted were extremely minor compared to any other Roman Catholic Theocracies.

    The Germans were getting more and more angry at us "traitors" for repeatedly showing lukewarmness and no government crackdown on Jews or having them rounded up. Even after Hitler's commandos rescued my husband from prison, my husband knew nothing of the death camps, and thought they were strictly for sympathizers with the Soviet Union.

    After my husband got out of prison, the Italians who fought for his puppet government were at war with Italy. They had no flags. Needed a different uniform. I helped them come up with ideas. Some of them knew they had family fighting on the other side and wondered, "what if I shoot my brother or friend". They hated the idea of killing Italians, but remained with the Duce , who said that as long as Italy existed, those who fought in defense of Fascism would never die.

    They weren't Italians anymore and they were being hit with American bombs regularly, well-aware that they had no hope. Even then, as he ruled the small puppet government which was occupied by Nazis, he did what he could to help Jews, even if it was something as small as telling his soldiers in private, "You are not Nazis", And quote the Pope saying things like "Spiritually we are semites" and "Our Scriptures were written by the Jews, our Mass and traditions are prefigured in the Old Testament, salvation comes from the Jews, Jesus chose twelve Jews as Apostles etc".
    Rachel Mussolini

    I can give a long list of mistakes in the Ethiopian conquest that are attributed to my husband which he had nothing to do with. I admit, some of those mistakes were due to poor leadership on Benito's end, but not because he ordered it or even knew about it.
    Rachel Mussolini

    My husband was too easy on his enemies which has destroyed his reputation and contributed to his downfall. I observed more of what went on than what he did. One reason we lost in Greece was he didn't have officers removed for what would have gotten them court martialed in an American military
    and executed in a Soviet military. He was lenient to a fault.
    Rachel Mussolini

    The soldiers that laid down their arms did so at the command of their leaders. I warned my husband about these men. He was too lenient which contributed immensely to his demise.
    Rachel Mussolini

    He was trusting to the point of naivete
    Rachel Mussolini

    He was opposed to hurting people, always finding reasons to forgive. People who didn't know him are shocked to hear this and dismiss it as falsehood. This trait in Mussolini is virtually unknown

    Mussolini was Hitler's major Ally but no one could accuse him of any crime against international ethics.

    The Fuhrer summed up Benito's weakness. " Duce you are too kind-hearted. You will never make a Dictator".
    Benito Mussolini

    Jesus g
    Jesus got strung up and his followers executed. That doesn't make him a failure. Hundreds of years later his followers conquered the most powerful and influential Empire in history. ( The Roman Empire).

    Before his execution Mussolini (like Jesus) promised he would return to a nation in need of a leader and we would feel "the arm".

    They had a few things in common... Jesus was the lamb of God. Mussolini was like the lion of God. Huge differences I'm

    Mussolini has more in common with Jacob who wrestled with God all night and won, getting his name changed to Israel which means "contender with God". Mussolini means Jacob and both of them married a woman named Rachel. Rachel Mussolini has my birthday and sees eye to eye with everything.

    Mussolini also means " to supplant. To remove from power and replace.". Mussolini removed and replaced the Prime minister of Rome. So, I compare him more to Israel, the contender with God.

    Jesus was king of the Jews. Mussolini was Caesar of his Church.

    Remember Napoleon, Benito, since you admire him so much. With each victory he wanted more. What happened to him, Benito?

    You want me to resign and raise chickens? You must be joking Rachel?

    No, I want you to stop in time to become a part of history while you're still alive and devote a few years to wife and children after giving thirty to politics.
    --Mussolini
    The fact that she hates Hitler and was fighting with her husband the whole time, makes me trust her more than sources that make him look stupid and without an ounce of human decency.

    I read quotes attributed to him, then read the book written by him and it isn't the same person.
