"How to Respond to an Anti-Conspiracy Theorist"
The Poison Pill in the 'Sound of Music'
"The Editorial Board" of Real News & History apologizes in advance (actually, we don't) if this story ends up souring your previous love for this seemingly nice film about the singing von Trapp family. But it's time to set the record straight about the damaging Fake History which serves as its mushy backdrop.
Many of the von Trapp's friends are willing to accept the new regime, including Rolf -- who Liesl von Trapp is devastated to see has joined the big bad Hitler Youth. That night, as the von Trapps attempt to "escape," they are stopped by a group of big bad Brownshirts ™. When questioned, the Captain tells them that they are headed to a festival to sing. That night at the festival, the von Trapp family slips away and shelters at the nearby abbey, where nuns hide them in the cemetery crypt (rolling eyes -- only a J could write this crap).
The big bad Brownshirts ™ soon arrive and search the abbey. The family is discovered by Rolf -- Liesl's ex-boyfriend. Upon seeing Liesl, Rolf hesitates, thus allowing the family time to "escape," by taking a car. When the big bad Brownshirts ™ attempt to pursue the "fugitives," they discover their cars will not start because the nuns have removed parts of the engines. The next day, after reaching the Swiss border, the von Trapps make their way on foot into Switzerland, where they will live, love, laugh and sing happily ever after.
The hyped-up film became the highest-grossing film of 1965. By November 1966, SoM had become the highest-grossing film of all-time—surpassing Gone with the Wind -- and held that record for five years. SoM was also popular throughout the world, shattering box-office records in 29 different countries!
The Truth About "The Anschluss"
Without a shot being fired, German forces moved in unopposed and were greeted as liberators by the joyous people of Austria. As a brotherly gesture towards the Austrians, The Great One (that's Hitler for all you newbies and normies) invited Austrian troops to march inside of Germany as well. When The Great One himself came to visit the land of his youth, he was given a hero's welcome by the frenzied Austrian crowds. Not surprisingly, the western Globo-Zionist media portrayed the joyful unification as: "Germany Conquers Austria.” So, if indeed the real-life Captain von Trapp actually was "anti-Nazi," -- it was only because he was part of the out-of-touch, insensitive, well-connected, well-fed, top 1% ruling class of puppet Austria; and not part of the starving masses who absolutely adored The Great One.
That's the truth about the big bad Anschluss. And no amount of Broadway (cough cough) or Hollyweird (cough cough) bullshit, mixed in with angelic-sounding "do-re-me-fa-so-la-ti-do" and beautiful Alpine imagery can change it.
