I can’t believe I’m doing this, but it must be done. The only way to progress is to be objective and accept the harsh truths as they come.
This is my catharsis — my letting go of a man I have revered since childhood.
Hitler goes out of his way to protect his Company Commander during the First World War, Ernest Hess.
The Nazi military rescued Chabad Lubavitch Rebbe Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn and carefully delivered him safely to the United States of America, where he continued the Hasidic dynasty that next produced the false messiah of the Jews, Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson.
Many would have us believe that this was just a kind gesture by a warm hearted Nazi soldier, who felt terrible for the plight of Jews in Nazi Germany.
Give me a fucking break!
Then there’s Marlene (Helene) von Exner, Hitler’s cook and dietician, of whom it is rumored he often flirted with. Jewish historians tell another story, though; that Hitler dismissed her from her duties when he learnt of her Jewish heritage. I call bullshit!
Adolf Hitler also declared his hatred for the German Volk and proclaimed their racial inferiority—as did Adolf Eichmann. Facing defeat, Hitler said,
“If the war is to be lost, the nation will also perish. This fate is inevitable. There is no need to consider the basis of a most primitive existence any longer. On the contrary it is better to destroy even that, and to destroy it ourselves. The nation will have proved itself the weaker and the future will belong exclusively to the stronger Eastern nation. Those who remain alive after the battles are over are in any case only inferior persons, since the best have fallen.”
Adolf Eichmann stated:
“[H]ad I been a Jew, I would have been a fanatical Zionist. I could not imagine being anything else. In fact, I would have been the most ardent Zionist imaginable. [***] It would be too easy to pretend that I had turned suddenly from a Saul to a Paul. No, I must say truthfully that if we had killed all the 10 million Jews that Himmler’s statisticians originally listed in 1933, I would say, ‘Good, we have destroyed an enemy.’ But here I do not mean wiping them out entirely. That would not be proper—and we carried on a proper war. Now, however, when through the malice of fate a large part of these Jews whom we fought against are alive, I must concede that fate must have wanted it so. I always claimed that we were fighting against a foe who through thousands of years of learning and development had become superior to us. I no longer remember exactly when, but it was even before Rome itself had been founded that the Jews could already write. It is very depressing for me to think of that people writing laws over 6,000 years of written history. But it tells me that they must be a people of the first magnitude, for law-givers have always been great.”
Hitler was also a Communist spy.
Earlier on in his political career, Hitler publicly mourned the death of the Jewish revolutionary Kurt Eisner, who had overthrown the Bavarian government just as the First World War ended in November of 1918. Still a soldier, Adolf Hitler served the Communists in an official capacity as the elected representative of the Soldiers’ Councils which defended the revolutionary governments of Bavaria. He was a propaganda liaison. Hitler must have been a truly committed Communist to voluntarily take on such a subversive role.
Hitler is also said, by many historians, to have attended the funeral of his Jewish mentor, Kurt Eisner.
In Mein Kampf, Hitler would later claim that Eisner was the most notorious Jew ever to have “stabbed Germany in the back” in the First World War. But Hitler hid the fact that he had worked for Eisner’s government and lamented Eisner’s death. Hitler was, in fact, a career Communist who voluntarily served Eisner’s revolutionary Socialist government in Bavaria, marched in uniform in Eisner’s funeral parade and then acted as an elected official of the openly communistic Bavarian Soviet Republic that emerged immediately after Kurt Eisner was assassinated—by a fellow Jew.
Suffice it to say, Hitler had many strange bedfellows. Jewish bedfellows. That’s all I’m saying.
Adolf Hitler did not want to be discovered, so he kept his mouth shut, his typewriter quiet and his pen dry. Hitler wrote in chapter 8 of his book Mein Kampf,
“At the end of November, 1918, I returned to Munich. Again I went to the replacement battalion of my regiment, which was in the hands of ‘soldiers’ councils.’ Their whole activity was so repellent to me that I decided at once to leave again as soon as possible. With Schmiedt Ernst, a faithful war comrade, I went to Traunstein and remained there till the camp was broken up.
In March, 1919, we went back to Munich.
The situation was untenable and moved inevitably toward a further continuation of the revolution. Eisner’s death only hastened the development and finally led to a dictatorship of the Councils, the original aim of the instigators of the whole revolution.
A few days after the liberation of Munich, I was ordered to report to the examining commission concerned with revolutionary occurrences in the Second Infantry Regiment.
This was my first more or less purely political activity.
Only a few weeks afterward I received orders to attend a ‘course’ that was held for members of the armed forces. In it the soldier was supposed to learn certain fundamentals of civic thinking. For me the value of the whole affair was that I now obtained an opportunity of meeting a few like-minded comrades with whom I could thoroughly discuss the situation of the moment. All of us were more or less firmly convinced that Germany could no longer be saved from the impending collapse by the parties of the November crime, the Center and the Social Democracy, and that the so-called ‘bourgois-national’ formations, even with the best of intentions, could never repair what had happened. A whole series of preconditions were lacking, without which such a task simply could not succeed. The following period confirmed the opinion we then held. Thus, in our own circle we discussed the foundation of a new party. The basic ideas which we had in mind were the same as those later realized in the ‘German Workers’ Party.’ The name of the movement to be founded would from the very beginning have to offer the possibility of approaching the broad masses; for without this quality the whole task seemed aimless and superfluous. Thus we arrived at the name of ‘Social Revolutionary Party’; this because the social views of the new organization did indeed mean a revolution.
Sounds very commie, to say the least!
So, Hitler was, by his own admission, cut from the same cloth as the social revolutionary Kurt Eisner and the Leninist Bolshevik Jews, Tobias Akselrod and Eugen Leviné of the Bavarian Soviet Republic. Hitler voluntarily served both governments in an official capacity as propaganda liaison for the Soldiers’ Councils (Soldatenräte or “Soldiers’ Soviets”). He did so of his own free will.
As heartbreaking as all of this is for me, I can admit that I’m not at least a bit surprised.
In his book Hitler’s First War, Thomas Weber wrote:
Yet we know with certainty of at least one veteran serving the revolutionary regime. He was a former member of the support staff of regimental HQ. This man was none other than Private Hitler.
Perhaps surprisingly, once back in Munich, Hitler did not act in any way consistent with his later beliefs. In fact, his actions during the five months after his return to Bavaria did not show any consistency at all. They were full of contradictions and reveal a deeply disoriented man without a clear mental compass to steer him through the post-war world. Hitler, who in painstaking detail described all other periods of his life in Mein Kampf, skated at great speed over the first five months after his arrival back in Bavaria, including the time of the Bavarian Soviet Republic, as though he were hiding something—and he had a lot to hide.
In the spring of 1919, as a soldier based in Munich, Hitler served a government that he was later to deride as treacherous, criminal, and Jewish in Mein Kampf. And he did not keep his head down. Soon, he had been elected to the Soldiers’ Council of his military unit, the Ersatz Battalion of the 2nd Infantry Regiment, and was based in military barracks in Oberwiesenfeld, close to where Munich’s Olympic Stadium stands today. More precariously, on surviving film footage of Eisner’s funeral we see Hitler with a few men from his unit walking behind Eisner’s coffin in the funeral procession of the Bavarian leader. We clearly see Hitler wearing two armbands: one black band to mourn the death of Eisner and the other a red one in the colour of the Socialist revolution. Similarly, Hitler appears on one of Heinrich Hoffmann’s photographs of the funeral procession for Eisner, taken shortly before Eisner was eulogized: ‘Kurt Eisner, the Jew, was a prophet who fought relentlessly against the fainthearted and wretched, because he not only loved mankind, but believed in it and wanted it.’ While Hitler could easily have joined, for instance, the Thule Society, which had inspired Eisner’s assassination and which was full of future National Socialist leaders, such as Alfred Rosenberg, Rudolf Hess, or Hans Frank, Hitler chose to publicly show his support for Eisner.
Even two days after the Soviet Republic had been proclaimed, Hitler stood for election again, when the new regime conducted an election among Munich’s soldier councils to ensure support for the Soviet Republic by Munich’s military units. Hitler was now elected Deputy Battalion Representative and remained in the post for the entire lifespan of the Soviet Republic. His task included liaising with the Department of Propaganda of the new Socialist government.
Dear me. I need an aspirin. I uh…I feel a migraine coming on.
Otto Strasser, the Nazi leader, indeed later asked after he had broken with Hitler, why Hitler had not like him joined the forces that put an end to the Soviet Republic: ‘Where was Hitler on that day? In which corner of Munich did the soldier hide himself, he who should have been fighting in our ranks?’
This is too much for me.
