Devils among Angels

I live in Los Angeles, also known as “The City of Angels”. Unfortunately, like many other cities, evil lurks everywhere. We have had multiple incidents of Jew-hate such as the recent display over the 405 freeway:


Evil is not new to Los Angeles. Lithuanian national hero Bronius Raila died in Los Angeles [1]on April 13, 1997. He was born in Plaučiškii (Pakruoj district) Lithuania, the same area as the Lithuanian mass Holocaust murderer, Jonas Noreika. Just like Noreika, Lithuania honored Raila. This time with the Commander’s Cross of the Order of Gediminas of the LDK.


Raila and his wife were exhumed in Los Angeles and re-buried in Lithuania with honors. Raila’s burial was attended by Simonas Kairys, the current Minister of Culture of Lithuania. Kairys stated: “He was an ideologue who encouraged society to think critically,”.

Raila’s critical thoughts include the following (translated from )

Bronius Raila was one of the founders of the Lithuanian Activist Front (LAF), the chairman of the LAF propaganda commission, “almost the right hand of Colonel Kazys Škirpa”. [2] 1941 January 25 LAF commander Kazys Škirpa handed over the plan “A proposal to liberate Lithuania” to Nazi Germany’s military intelligence, in which the second of the three stages of preparation was “Preparation for the decisive action of public opinion and the determination of the Lithuanian nation”. At the request of Kazys Škirpa, Bronius Raila wrote the brochure “What activists are fighting for”. It accuses the Jews of actively participating in the destruction of the Lithuanian state. The ideology of communism is derived from the Jews and their nature, as Adolf Hitler claimed in the book Mein Kampf Jews are condemned for refusing to assimilate. Lithuania without Jews is seen in the future: “In accordance with the reborn Europe, the Aryan spirit will have to be separated from the state and national body of Lithuania.” With the appeal “Let’s free Lithuania from the yoke of Judaism forever”. Jews are considered the spreaders of the disastrous ideology of communism, they are accused of invading the Lithuanian economy and flooding the cities. The verdict is announced: “The old right of asylum granted to Jews in Lithuania during the time of Vytautas the Great is completely and finally revoked.” The Jews are offered to leave the land of Lithuania immediately. It is planned to transfer movable and immovable property owned by Jews to the ownership of the Lithuanian nation. [3] [4] Bronius Raila envisioned the “new Lithuania” as a one-party national dictatorship, purely Lithuanian, without Jews or other minorities, led by its leader and Great Germany. [5] Historian Valentinas Brandišauskas claimed that the anti-Semitic rhetoric of the Lithuanian Activists Front minimally affected the mass consciousness of Lithuania, and the pogroms and shootings during the uprising were caused by local causes. [3] However, the International Commission to Assess the Crimes of the Nazi and Soviet Occupation Regimes in Lithuania confirmed the conclusions that attempts were made to justify the pogroms with anti-Semitic propaganda equating Jews to Bolshevism, and the anti-Semitic views of the Lithuanian Provisional Government and the Lithuanian Activists Front are well documented.[6] in 1942 Bronius Raila returned to Lithuania , 1942-1944 .

There is a remarkable consistency between those that Lithuania elevates as national heroes, and those that fermented and carried out the genocide of Jews in Lithuania.


As a resident of Los Angeles, I am aware of a few descendants of Holocaust proponents and perpetrators in the Los Angeles area. Monsters such as Raila repudiate the name City of Angels.

Los Angeles Mayor Bass has been outspoken about antisemitism:

Unlike Los Angeles, Lithuania showers antisemites and Holocaust perpetrators with national awards. The very opposite of Angels.
