As a German child growing up in a foreign country during the 60s, I was often called a “Nazi” by some of my peers when they learned that I was German. It was of course, simply ignorant repetition or “parroting” of what was said on TV in hundreds of TV shows, Hollywood movies, alleged ‘documentaries’, in newspaper and magazine articles, as well as in radio programs, not to mention classroom indoctrination, and probably by their parents too. The libraries, of course, were also full of books which spoke of “Nazis” (and still are). So to deny that there was ever such thing as a “Nazi”, to most people, would be akin to denying the moon-landing, or perhaps more accurately, like telling a frightened child that “no monster under the bed” or “no ghost in the closet”. And one would then not only be thought as a “Nazi”, but also a lunatic, because after all, “everyone knows Hitler was an evil Nazi, and a madman, and a war monger and he wanted to take over the world, yada yada yada!”. Well, if truth, justice, and honest history (as opposed to “convenient history) mean anything any more, then we need to un-learn this term, and to stop parroting it like little children, using it for convenience sake, and especially, from using it as a repressive weapon for the purposes of “stifling dissent”; the very thing everyone wants to accuse “evil Nazis” of having done!
It’s time to debunk the “Nazi” epithet, and to show you where it came from, who invented it, and why. The fact is, that the term “Nazi” was created by the enemies of the National Socialists (the NSDAP). It was a pejorative term; an insult or a slur. The Germans, not even Hitler nor any other top party officials ever called themselves “Nazis”! They called themselves “National Socialists” and nothing else. Those who can read German and have studied any of the original documents and speeches know this already, but most don’t.
“The term “Nazi” (along with “Nazism”) is a political epithet invented by Konrad Heiden (7 August 1901 – 18 June 1966) during the 1920s as a means of denigrating the NSDAP and National Socialism. Heiden was a journalist and member of the Social Democratic Party. The term is a variant of the nickname that was used in reference to members of the SDP at the time “Sozi” (short for Sozialisten). “Nazi” was a political pun, based upon the Austro-Bavarian slang word for “simpleton” or “country bumpkin”, and derived from the fairly common name Ignatz. It would be like saying “nutsy”. So, if for no other reason, one should easily understand why the term was regarded as derogatory by the National Socialists and why they would never use it to describe themselves. One should also see why it would be used and popularized by Marxist-Bolshevik agitators and understand how it was seized upon by various other political opponents and subversive types, both within Germany and abroad, including the international media and political leaders of the western powers.” (Metapedia)
It should immediately become apparent that, if there is no such thing as a “Nazi”, except in the propaganda which was invented and spewed by this man, then it follows logically, that there is also NO such thing as a “Neo-Nazi” either. Those who would describe themselves as such are as ignorant as those who say they hate “Nazis” and they are equally deceived. Indeed, I highly suspect that some of those who promote “Neo-Nazism” are really agents whose job it is to keep the spectre of evil “Nazis” alive, and to effect the demonization of all those who would dare question the whole history about Hitler, the NS and WWII that we have all been sold.
What we must also know about Mr. Heiden, however, is that he was not just any other political opponent in the days of the Weimar Republic. He, himself was a “Jew”, and his father was a trade unionist, and that the trade unions were teaming with subversive, violent, Marxist-Bolsheviks. And NO, that is not “racist” statement, nor is intended to promote hatred. Merely to sate the facts. If you want to make such childish accusations then please start with attacking Wikipedia.
Wikipedia states that:
“Konrad Heiden (7 August 1901 – 18 June 1966) was an influential Jewish journalist and historian of the Weimar Republic and Nazi eras, most noted for the first influential biographies of German dictator Adolf Hitler. Often, he wrote under the pseudonym “Klaus Bredow.”
Heiden was born in Munich, Germany, on 7 August 1901, and graduated from the University of Munich in 1923. His father was a union organizer, while his mother had a Jewish background. At the university, he organized a republican and democratic student body and became a member of the Social Democratic Party.
Heiden was one of the first critical observers of the rise of National Socialism in Germany after he attended a party’s meeting in 1920. He worked for the Frankfurter Zeitung and the Vossischen Zeitung, but became a freelancer in 1932. A year later, he went into exile; first to Saarland, then to Switzerland, then to France, and finally to the United States.
Heiden’s book, “The New Inquisition”, published jointly by Modern Age Books, Inc. and Alliance Book Corporation, in New York in 1939, with a translation from German by Heinz Norden, includes a series of personal, but necessarily anonymous accounts by German Jews of violent persecution under the Nazi regime accelerating from the time of the fall of 1938 and an eerie and accurate prediction of the Final Solution planned by the Nazi regime:
To drive 600,000 people by robbery into hunger, by hunger into desperation, by desperation into wild outbreaks, and by such outbreaks into the waiting knife — such is the cooly calculated plan. Mass murder is the goal, a massacre such as history has not seen — certainly not since Tamerlane and Mithridates. We can only venture guesses as to the technical forms these mass executions are to take. In his book Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler suggested that the people to be killed be kept “under poisonous gas”; however, he speaks of a mere twelve to fifteen thousand. Doubtless the destructive instinct in the ruling class of the regime has grown in the meantime…”
There are a number of things there that should immediately send up “RED flags”! But let’s just look at the most blatant distortion of the fact. As I recently demonstrated with an article from the largest German-Jewish organization in 1933 (at the time when Hitler came to power and when Heiden set about telling his lies) defended Germany, and said to the world that they were doing fine, and they appealed for end to the atrocity propaganda. By the way, the Jewish population was less than 6oo,000 as Heiden had said.
Now let’s look Adolf Hitler actually did say, and in what context he said it He was discussing World War I, in which he himself had courageously fought, and had been decorated numerous times for his bravery :
“The fact that the German people carried on the War proved that the Marxist folly had not yet been able to penetrate deeply. But as the War was prolonged German soldiers and workers gradually fell back into the hands of the Marxist leaders, and the number of those who thus relapsed became lost to their country. At the beginning of the War, or even during the War, if twelve or fifteen thousand of these Jews who were corrupting the nation had been forced to submit to poison-gas, just as hundreds of thousands of our best German workers from every social stratum and from every trade and calling had to face it in the field, then the millions of sacrifices made at the front would not have been in vain. On the contrary: If twelve thousand of these malefactors had been eliminated in proper time probably the lives of a million decent men,who would be of value to Germany in the future, might have been saved. But it was in accordance with bourgeois ‘statesmanship’ to hand over, without the twitch of an eyelid, millions of human beings to be slaughtered on the battlefields, while they looked upon ten or twelve thousand public traitors, profiteers, usurers and swindlers, as the dearest and most sacred national treasure and proclaimed their persons to be inviolable. Indeed it would be hard to say what is the most outstanding feature of these bourgeois circles: mental debility, moral weakness and cowardice, or a mere down-at-heel mentality. It is a class that is certainly doomed to go under but, unhappily, it drags down the whole nation with it into the abyss.” (Mein Kampf, James Murphy Translation, 1939, Page 518)
Do we see the difference? And do we see the deception at work? Do we see the intention to mislead the world at large?
Regarding the camps, Heiden gives no mention to the fact those people being interned in labour camps were subversives. Nor to the fact that these people could be, and were often released back to their communities. I will have more on that, however, in a future post. Also ignored is the fact that such camps were far more common and horrific in the Soviet Union, with little or no hope of getting out. And of course, such camps had been invented and used very cruelly by the Brits, and also the American hypocrites too.
Regarding the ‘Frankfurter Zeitung’, “during the period of the Weimar Republic, the paper was treated with hostility by nationalist circles because it had pronounced itself in favour of the Treaty of Versailles in 1918. At that time it no longer stood in opposition to the government and supported Gustav Stresemann’s policy of reconciliation.”
As to the ‘Vossische Zeitung’, it was based in Berlin which was a bastion of decadence in the Weimar period. It catered to the liberal-Bourgeois crowd and was very “international” in it’s views. “Until the second year of the Third Reich’s reign over Germany, the publication was generally regarded as Germany’s national newspaper of record, just as The Times and Le Temps were to Great Britain and France, respectively. ”
Now, you may want to dismiss me as being a “biased German”, and I am sure that some will reflexively shriek that I am an “anti-Semite” (which I am not) for daring to bring up this man’s background, and questioning his character and motives, but any objective observer who has done his or her own research, and who is at all familiar with the realities of the Weimar Republic, and with the true, publicly stated objectives of the National Socialists should immediately see that there was a huge conflict of interest there and bias on Heidens part. And that bias and his special interests would not only cause him to engage in childish name calling and insults such as “Nazi!”, but far more serious and injurious behaviours, such as LYING HIS ASS OFF off to foment another World War, that would eventually cost nearly 60,000,000 million lives, incalculable misery world wide, and a bogus legacy that still haunts us all today.
No, Mr. Heiden was certainly NOT an objective “journalist”, he was a “propagandist” and an “opportunist”! For if he was really concerned with “human rights” then where and when did he criticize the bloody red Bolsheviks and the brutal genocide of tens of millions of Christian Russians and the starvation of the 7 million Ukrainians? Much less the plight of the starving, unemployed, destitute and desperate Germans who were being held as slaves in their own country by the dictates of the Versailles Treaty and the dealings of self-described “Jewish” bankers and financial barons of Wall Street, London and Paris, while at the same time, being primed for Bolshevism by the Comintern and the trade unions. The bloody Russian Revolution was brought about by those very same Ueber-Kapitalist scoundrels, who also fomented World War I. Hitler had been openly discussing these things and fighting then from the beginning! Do you think just maybe they may have had a little something against him and the National Socialists, hmmm?
All things being equal, Heiden should NEVER have been given much (if any) credibility for his claims, as he and his interests (ie the status quo) were under the threat by the NSDAP. It was entirely in his interest, and that of his father, his family, his associates, etc to smear the National Socialists, both at home and abroad, to preserve their own interests, at the expense of everyone else. Not only that, but also with a major interest in perpetuating his lies after the war too, in order to continually justify it.
One would have to be very naive to not know that he found a waiting and welcome soapbox in America, partly because of who controls the media there, but more importantly, because America, after World War I and especially during the Great Depression had fallen totally into the hands of the International Bankster Gangsters who happen to call themselves “Jews” (…and are not). The very same bunch of crooks who gave you the Federal Reserve and which rules you today, as well as Germany, and most other countries. The National Socialists had a rescue plan for their people and their economy, which threatened their hegemony and the long-term global plans, ie the NWO agenda. Are we getting it yet?
Heiden was not alone in his efforts either. As soon as Hitler came to power, many of the most influential Jews bailed out and headed straight to America, to literally “raise hell”. That, of course, takes us back to what I had stated in my earlier post “World War II started in 1933!” (which detailed the world wide Jewish initiated boycotts). And for the Germans, that war has never ended. Nor will it, until people really begin to grasp the level of deception that has gone on, and is still being used to manipulate the world today.
Again, if people are truly seeking truth, justice, and peace on this planet, then it is high time they begin to learn and to research these things for themselves, stop trusting the media, and many in the alternative media, and stop perpetuating their lies, and stop using their jargon, not only for the sake of the honour of the Germans, but because it is self-defeating. All humanity has suffered from this injustice, and shall continue to do so until we all take personal responsibility, by researching and learning the truth, and speaking the truth, and for holding the real liars, haters and war mongers accountable!
But, to those who want to persist in using that nasty epithet, then perhaps we need to start calling you a bunch “Heidis”!
How do you like that, hmmm?
But what about the “Nazi-Zionist” Medallion?
Here is one item that certain people like to trot out occasionally to try and (falsely) make the point that Hitler the NS founded Israel, and that “Nazi = Zionist”, and that the NS called themselves “Nazis”. This is worthy of a post on it’s own, but it is very much related to the above, so I hope you will bear with me on this.
I have already dealt with those Zionist issues in previous, recent posts. However, as to this image depicting a medallion (many claim it was a coin, but it wasn’t), this did exist, but I think there is an an untold story here which may have even escaped the eyes of most “revisionist” historian’s. Look at the known facts and judge for yourself.
SS Officer Leopold von Mildenstein was influencing NS policy towards the Jews and the NS Newspaer in Berlin ‘Der Angriff’ had this medal struck to commemorate his voyage to Palestine, depicting the ‘Hakenkreuz’ (what most falsely call a swastika) on one side and the Jewish Star on the other.
“History Today” in the U.K. used this motif to publicize its January 1980 issue featuring an article by Jacob Boas. The article brought howls of outrage from Zionist students and others, convinced that it was their duty to protect Zionism from any suggestion that its leaders ever “collaborated with Nazis”, and to denounce the magazine’s supposed motives. The article however, was based on the facts.
Between 9 September and 9 October 1934 the National Socialist Party Berlin newspaper Der Angriff, founded and controlled by Joseph Goebbels, published a series of twelve pro-Zionist articles by Mildenstein under the title A National Socialist Goes to Palestine. In honour of his visit, the newspaper issued a commemorative medal, with the swastika on one side and the Star of David on the other.
In the summer of 1935, then holding the rank of SS-Untersturmführer, Mildenstein attended the 19th Congress of the Zionist Organization in Lucerne, Switzerland, as an observer attached to the German Jewish delegation. Mildenstein’s apparently less extreme anti-Jewish line was overtaken by events, and after a dispute with Reinhard Heydrich in 1936 he was removed from his post and transferred to the Foreign Ministry’s press department. He had fallen out of favour because migration to Palestine was not proceeding at a fast enough rate. His departure from the SD also saw a shift in SS policy, marked by the publication of a pamphlet warning of the dangers of a strong Jewish state in the Middle East, written by another ‘expert’ on Jewish matters who had been invited to join Section II/112 by Mildenstein himself, Eichmann. Mildenstein was replaced as the head of his former Section by Kuno Schroeder. Later, in December 1939, Eichmann was made head of the Jewish Department Referat IV B4 of the RSHA, of which the SD became a part in September, 1939.
As Germany moved into the Second World War, Mildenstein continued to write propaganda articles and books. After the war, his ‘Around the Burning Land of the Jordan’ (1938) and ‘The Middle East Seen from the Roadside’ (1941) were placed on the list of proscribed literature in the Soviet occupation zone and later in the German Democratic Republic.
Like the Haavara Agreement, Mildenstein’s 1933 visit to Palestine and the medal to commemorate it were later sometimes used by anti-Israel authors to argue that there was a relationship between National socialism and Zionism.
Most historians seem to concur. But there are a number of things which cause me to think that the former SS Officer Leopold von Mildenstein, was really a double agent. He selected and groomed Eichmann, who eventually later replaced Mildenstein. He wasn’t tried after the war as were his colleagues. Eichmann fled to South America, but was later captured and tried by the Israelis and then hanged. Mildenstein, however, went on to lead a good life in West Germany, and even became a member of the FPD and was even elected to the Bundestag! In 1954 he visited the USA. He obtained a visa at the request the FRG (occupational) government of West Germany.
He was later described using the respectable term “journalist”, whereas, previously under the NS, he was described as a “propagandist”. In the 1960s he worked for Coca-Cola in their PR Department, but then went on to work for “Voice of the Arabs” radio in Cairo, Egypt. When Eichmann was arrested and put on trial, he dropped name of Mildenstein on the public record during the trial. That caused Mildenstein to claim immunity from prosecution by proclaiming that he was, or had been in an operational relationship with the CIA, and as such, and he got immunity! I suspect, therefore, that his work at the Egypt radio station was likely a cover for intelligence related work in the Middle-East. But how does one go from being an SS-Zionist supporter to being a voice or writer for a Pro-Arab and Pan-Arabist radio station? CIA? Mossad? As to the series of 12 articles he wrote and which were published in 1934 in “Der Angriff”, which the medallion commemorated, the first article was published on 9/11 (in 1934). Ummm?
So, now this medallion is out there and everyone claims it was Goebbels work. Goebbels had indeed started the magazine in 1926, but by 1934, it was no longer well supported or needed by the NSDAP. Goebbels, himself, was now in government as a minister with many responsibilities, including overseeing some 120 daily and weekly magazines across Germany. Der Angriff was no longer his baby in Berlin. There were a series of “Editors in Chief” which succeeded Goebbels in that position. So it is quite a stretch to claim that it was the work of Goebbels and that he approved of it.
As to Mildenstein, after outting himself as a CIA operative, he dropped out of sight in 1964. It is said by Wikipedia that he died in 1968, but there is no mention of where or how he died. What is Mildestein’s lasting legacy? It is that image of the “Nazi-Zionist” medallion for which Goebbels’ name is now permanently linked to that infamous, nasty, pejorative term “Nazi”, to provide credibility for it amongst the gullible. Moreover, it is grist for the mill for all those who push the notion that the actions of Israelis against the Palestinians today are synonymous with “National Socialists”, not to mention the ludicrous conspiracy theories, that”Hitler was a Jew” or “Hitler was a Rothschild” and all such nonsense which is easily debunked. Again, see my previous posts.
Who benefits? Those who fear the truth and who fear the day that the world gets wise to them, their lies, and their agenda. The bottom line is there are no “Nazis” and there never were! There were only “National Socialists” and it is high time that people learn what National Socialism was really about, why World War II was actually fought, who wanted it, who started it, and what agenda was served by it. That same agenda is still well served today by a dumbed-down, ignorant world, with childish beliefs and fears of “evil Nazis”.
