Bullied for centuries. Generally aspire to be left alone for once, both collectively and individually.

Most actual Latvians would have preferred Germany winning WWII. Nor for reasons of antisemitism, but all the harm the Reds had done and would do.

Genetically and culturally closer to Estonians than Lithuanians, with whom any relation is purely linguistic, if that.

Were conquered in the 13th century in a manner similar to Northern America - pit one tribe against the other, then subjugate all.

Culturally still very much pagan, though with a Christian crust. Most will not have read the Bible, aĺl observe pagan Midsummers with beer and sexual promoscuity.

That's the only semi-truthful thing in your post, m8.
Rest is pretty much bullshit.

They support Bolsheviks against Whites in civil war. For promised independence.
The Bolsheviks lied of course.
Only Poles wreaking Reds shit saved them.
Then They lost their independence to the Reds who treat them as they deserve as untrusty mercenaries and traitors.(and they were as they were enemy of revolution).
Then they join Germans and kill Reds.
They lost.
They want freedom but are too weak to get it alone so they will ally anyone who promise it to them. No wonder why Soviets don't trust them at all.
