That's why MSM documentaries only show small fragments of Hitler speeches & usually with no translation.  Once downloaded a collection of Hitler & Goebbels speeches, don't know much German but understand some bits here & there.  Actually their speech is pretty easy to understand as far as German speakers go.  BTW the school system I attended deliberately steered students away from German:  in 7/8th grade there were two tracks:  smart track automatically had to take French so when you got to high school many, like myself, reluctant to switch to other languages.  In hindsight I probably would have switched.

7/8th grade, brings back memories. I wanted to take Italian cause all my friends were Italians, but my mother forced me to take French cause she had a low opinion of the Calabrese and Sicilian soldiers occupying Greece in the early 1940's.

A friend's elementary-school kid is taking Arabic under the gifted program.  Have no idea why they offer/encourage it; I told 'em "what if junior goes further with Arabic study & makes a career out of it?  Likely chance he'll end up in some FBI GWOT frame-up like the Guantanamo defense lawyers".

Anti-Semitism


Der Ewige Jude (The Eternal Jew)

Now that the basics of fascism have been outlined, how does anti-Semitism play into all of this?

There is much, much, more to anti-Semitism then first meets the eye. Anti-Semitism is not just hating Jews for the sake of hating Jews, in the anti-Semitic mind there are clearly defined reasons to hate Jews. In order to understand anti-Semitism you first have to know what these reasons are, why these things are hated in the first place, and lastly why they are associated with Jews.

For the most part, Jews were, in their mind, the embodiment of everything that the fascists opposed, and when I say fascists I do not just mean the leaders, I mean the civilian public as well.

I have already outlined what the fascists opposed, they opposed liberalism, democracy, Marxism, secularism, and laissez-faire capitalism. What is most important to note about this is that many people, not just the fascists, shared many elements of these same feelings. These sentiments are in essence the definition of right-wing social ideology.

The roots of anti-Semitism go back to the early days of Christianity, but I will only cover them briefly.

Ironically, Christianity was in its origin a liberal movement within Judaism. Both the Pharisees and the Zealots were Jewish conservatives that were opposed to Roman culture and rule. There were also the Sadducees and Herodians who were Jewish liberals, some of which worked with the Romans and had in fact become respected members of the Roman community.

The Christian movement was in many ways a political movement that opposed corruption within the Jewish community and supported non-violence in opposition to Roman infringement on Jewish sovereignty. Christianity was a liberal movement that opposed the Roman treatment of Jews, the poor, and the oppressed masses. While some Jews integrated into Roman society, others were oppressed by the Romans, and Rome took some Jews into slavery. During a strongly conservative time in Romans society, shortly prior to the adoption of Christianity by Rome, many religions, including Judaism and Christianity, were outlawed. Christianity was later adopted as the official religion of Rome however.

Once Christianity became the dominant religion of Rome the Christians that came to power in Rome began taking further action against Jews, who they despised as people who were not only responsible for the killing of Jesus, but who had also opposed the Christian movement all along.

306: The church Synod of Elvira banned marriages, sexual intercourse and community contacts between Christians and Jews.

315: Constantine published the Edict of Milan which extended religious tolerance to Christians. Jews lost many rights with this edict. They were no longer permitted to live in Jerusalem, or to proselytize.

325: The Council of Nicea decided to separate the celebration of Easter from the Jewish Passover. They stated: "For it is unbecoming beyond measure that on this holiest of festivals we should follow the customs of the Jews. Henceforth let us have nothing in common with this odious people...We ought not, therefore, to have anything in common with the Jews...our worship follows a...more convenient course...we desire dearest brethren, to separate ourselves from the detestable company of the Jews...How, then, could we follow these Jews, who are almost certainly blinded."

337: Christian Emperor Constantius created a law which made the marriage of a Jewish man to a Christian punishable by death.

339: Converting to Judaism became a criminal offense.

343-381: The Laodicean Synod approved Cannon XXXVIII: "It is not lawful [for Christians] to receive unleavened bread from the Jews, nor to be partakers of their impiety." 5

367 - 376: St. Hilary of Poitiers referred to Jews as a perverse people who God has cursed forever. St. Ephroem refers to synagogues as brothels.

379-395: Emperor Theodosius the Great permitted the destruction of synagogues if it served a religious purpose. Christianity became the state religion of the Roman Empire at this time.

380: The bishop of Milan was responsible for the burning of a synagogue; he referred to it as "an act pleasing to God."

415: The Bishop of Alexandria, St. Cyril, expelled the Jews from that Egyptian city.

415: St. Augustine wrote "The true image of the Hebrew is Judas Iscariot, who sells the Lord for silver. The Jew can never understand the Scriptures and forever will bear the guilt for the death of Jesus."

source: Jewish Persecution 70-1200 C.E.

Jews had become a part of the Roman Empire and traveled throughout it as other people did. Rome, like modern America, facilitated travel and movement of people, especially the well educated Sadducee and Herodian Jews who often took clerical or administrative jobs which required movement throughout the empire. Additionally, other Jews were spread throughout the empire by force as well. Interestingly, the more conservative Jewish cultures of the Pharisees and the Zealots tended to say around the Middle East and later immigrated east into the Eastern Orthodox Empire in present day Turkey and Russia, etc. These are all just generalizations, but this is basically what happened.

So, once the Christians had obtained the upper hand in the Roman Empire, and later Holy Roman Empire, they became antagonistic to Jews and saw them as a rival and threat politically, economically, and religiously, as they did all other religious groups.

These antagonisms continued on between Jews and Christians throughout the Middle Ages.

All of this came to a boil with the Protestant Reformation, which started in Germany with Martin Luther. Like all movements, Martin Luther was not the true originator of the ideology, he was simply the leader that brought the growing social conditions into a unified movement. Movements don't spring up out of nowhere, but tend to come to a head when there is a significant portion of the population that shares the same feelings, then a leader emerges to organize the community. The Protestant Reformation was one of the largest revolutionary movements in history at the time, largely due to the use of the printing press.


Luther posting the 95 Thesis

The Protestant Reformation was itself an anti-Semitic movement. The Protestant Reformation was also in many ways part of the roots of capitalism. What had happened was that the policies of the Catholic Church had become obviously restrictive to Christians, who could see non-Christians, Jews and Muslims, doing better than them financially. The root of that problem was restrictive Catholic dogma. The Protestants were hard working Christians who wanted more and didn't like the growing wealth and power of non-Christians in Europe and the Middle East. (There were of course many other issues involved in the Protestant Reformation as well.)

Martin Luther himself was extremely anti-Semitic and wrote a book titled The Jews and Their Lies in 1543. In this book he accused Jews of being liars and thieves and blamed just about every bad thing in the world on "the Jews". He also requested in this book that the Catholic Church cast the Jews out of Europe, and it was the Church's failure to comply with this request, among others, that convinced Martin Luther to break with the Catholic Church.

Quotes from The Jews and Their Lies follow:

    "I had made up my mind to write no more either about the Jews or against them. But since I learned that these miserable and accursed people do not cease to lure to themselves even us, that is, the Christians, I have published this little book, so that I might be found among those who opposed such poisonous activities of the Jews who warned the Christians to be on their guard against them. I would not have believed that a Christian could be duped by the Jews into taking their exile and wretchedness upon himself. However, the devil is the god of the world, and wherever God's word is absent he has an easy task, not only with the weak but also with the strong. May God help us. Amen."

    "Learn from this, dear Christian, what you are doing if you permit the blind Jews to mislead you. Then the saying will truly apply, "When a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into the pit" [cf. Luke 6:39]. You cannot learn anything from them except how to misunderstand the divine commandments."

    "Therefore be on your guard against the Jews, knowing that wherever they have their synagogues, nothing is found but a den of devils in which sheer self­glory, conceit, lies, blasphemy, and defaming of God and men are practiced most maliciously and veheming his eyes on them."

    "Moreover, they are nothing but thieves and robbers who daily eat no morsel and wear no thread of clothing which they have not stolen and pilfered from us by means of their accursed usury. Thus they live from day to day, together with wife and child, by theft and robbery, as arch­thieves and robbers, in the most impenitent security."

    "Over and above that we let them get rich on our sweat and blood, while we remain poor and they such the marrow from our bones."

    "brief, dear princes and lords, those of you who have Jews under your rule­­ if my counsel does not please your, find better advice, so that you and we all can be rid of the unbearable, devilish burden of the Jews, lest we become guilty sharers before God in the lies, blasphemy, the defamation, and the curses which the mad Jews indulge in so freely and wantonly against the person of our Lord Jesus Christ, this dear mother, all Christians, all authority, and ourselves. Do not grant them protection, safe­conduct, or communion with us.... .With this faithful counsel and warning I wish to cleanse and exonerate my conscience."

    "Therefore we Christians, in turn, are obliged not to tolerate their wanton and conscious blasphemy."

Martin Luther outlined seven points of action to take against Jews:

    "First to set fire to their synagogues or schools and to bury and cover with dirt whatever will not burn, so that no man will ever again see a stone or cinder of them. This is to be done in honor of our Lord and of Christendom, so that God might see that we are Christians, and do not condone or knowingly tolerate such public lying, cursing, and blaspheming of his Son and of his Christians. For whatever we tolerated in the past unknowingly ­ and I myself was unaware of it ­ will be pardoned by God. But if we, now that we are informed, were to protect and shield such a house for the Jews, existing right before our very nose, in which they lie about, blaspheme, curse, vilify, and defame Christ and us (as was heard above), it would be the same as if we were doing all this and even worse ourselves, as we very well know.

    Second, I advise that their houses also be razed and destroyed. For they pursue in them the same aims as in their synagogues. Instead they might be lodged under a roof or in a barn, like the gypsies. This will bring home to them that they are not masters in our country, as they boast, but that they are living in exile and in captivity, as they incessantly wail and lament about us before God.

    Third, I advise that all their prayer books and Talmudic writings, in which such idolatry, lies, cursing and blasphemy are taught, be taken from them. (remainder omitted)

    Fourth, I advise that their rabbis be forbidden to teach henceforth on pain of loss of life and limb. For they have justly forfeited the right to such an office by holding the poor Jews captive with the saying of Moses (Deuteronomy 17 [:10 ff.]) in which he commands them to obey their teachers on penalty of death, although Moses clearly adds: "what they teach you in accord with the law of the Lord." Those villains ignore that. They wantonly employ the poor people's obedience contrary to the law of the Lord and infuse them with this poison, cursing, and blasphemy. In the same way the pope also held us captive with the declaration in Matthew 16 {:18], "You are Peter," etc, inducing us to believe all the lies and deceptions that issued from his devilish mind. He did not teach in accord with the word of God, and therefore he forfeited the right to teach.

    Fifth, I advise that safe­conduct on the highways be abolished completely for the Jews. For they have no business in the countryside, since they are not lords, officials, tradesmen, or the like. Let they stay at home. (...remainder omitted).

    Sixth, I advise that usury be prohibited to them, and that all cash and treasure of silver and gold be taken from them and put aside for safekeeping. The reason for such a measure is that, as said above, they have no other means of earning a livelihood than usury, and by it they have stolen and robbed from us all they possess. Such money should now be used in no other way than the following: Whenever a Jew is sincerely converted, he should be handed one hundred, two hundred, or three hundred florins, as personal circumstances may suggest. With this he could set himself up in some occupation for the support of his poor wife and children, and the maintenance of the old or feeble. For such evil gains are cursed if they are not put to use with God's blessing in a good and worthy cause.

    Seventh, I commend putting a flail, an ax, a hoe, a spade, a distaff, or a spindle into the hands of young, strong Jews and Jewesses and letting them earn their bread in the sweat of their brow, as was imposed on the children of Adam (Gen 3[:19]}. For it is not fitting that they should let us accursed Goyim toil in the sweat of our faces while they, the holy people, idle away their time behind the stove, feasting and farting, and on top of all, boasting blasphemously of their lordship over the Christians by means of our sweat. No, one should toss out these lazy rogues by the seat of their pants."

As you can see, there is little difference, if any, between the teachings of Martin Luther, the founder of modern Protestantism, and that of Adolph Hitler. In fact Hitler implemented Luther's Seven Points; that was what Hitler was doing, he was carrying out the Seven Points prescribed by Luther. Hitler carried out every single one of the Seven Points to a tee, including of course putting Jews into labor camps and forcing them to work. In fact the burning of the synagogues took place on Martin Luther's birthday. Protestantism itself is born of anti-Semitism, and the birth of Protestantism took place in Germany where it had from then on been a strong part of German culture. 

In Hitler's Willing Executioners Daniel Goldhagen wrote:

    "One leading Protestant churchman, Bishop Martin Sasse, published a compendium of Martin Luther's antisemitic vitriol shortly after Kristallnacht's orgy of anti-Jewish violence. In the foreword to the volume, he applauded the burning of the synagogues and the coincidence of the day: 'On November 10, 1938, on Luther's birthday, the synagogues are burning in Germany.' The German people, he urged, ought to heed these words 'of the greatest antisemite of his time, the warner of his people against the Jews.'"

In Why Aryan Law?, published in 1934, Dr. E. H. Schulz and Dr. R. Frercks state:

    "Martin Luther wrote this of the Jews in his book "The Jews and their Lies": "They hold we Christians captive in our own land. They have seized our goods by their cursed usury, they mock and insult us because we work. They are our lords, and we and our goods belong to them." If in the coming days the Jewish race is driven out of the non-Jewish world, it will have at least this consolation: It has made clear to them for all time the value of maintaining the purity of race and blood in clear, understandable and unforgettable ways.

    National Socialist racial legislation has reduced the influence of Jewry in all professions, and above all excluded them from the leading offices of the nation. That is an important step in the relationship between Germans and Jews, but one cannot ignore the fact that we have not yet fully eliminated the influence of the Jewish foreign body in German national life."

In John Conway's discussion of the role of Protestantism and Martin Luther in Nazi society, he commented on a 1946 study into the issue of Luther's legacy after Nazism:

    "Nazi propaganda had made much use of Luther's anti-Jewish writings, but as Lehmann showed, postwar Protestants found ways to avoid confronting that stain on their hero."

Martin Luther, with his creation of the Protestant movement, was also the creator of modern anti-Semitism. Of course anti-Semitism had been present for a long time, but Luther galvanized anti-Semitism along with the Protestant movement and in fact the two have been hand in hand ever since, though since World War II and the atrocities of the Nazi regime this connection has faded.

What else is important here is to note the points of contention. Among the important points is that of usury and that of the idea that through control of money Jews were taking advantage of the labor of Christians.

The result of the Protestant Reformation was actually that Christians began engaging in the activities which they had cursed Jews for, such as banking, finance and mercantilism. This was the beginnings of modern capitalism.

To be continued...
"At any given moment there is an orthodoxy, a body of ideas which it is assumed all right-thinking people will accept without question. It is not exactly forbidden to state this or that or the other, but it is "not done".

A more modern "champion" of anti-Semitism was Protestant Henry Ford, who started an anti-Semitic periodical called ''The Dearborn Independent'' in 1921, went on to publish ''The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion'', a fraudulent writing which was claimed to be the secret hidden agenda of Jews to rule the world, and then published The International Jew: The World's Foremost Problem.


In The International Jew Ford outlined a brief history of Jewish involvement in America and labeled New York City as the "center of the Jewish population."

Ford goes on to blame all of the negative images of American business on Jews.

    The American people would be vastly surprised if they could see a line-up of some of the "American business men" who hold up our commercial prestige overseas. They are mostly Jews. This may throw a sidelight on the regard in which "American business methods" are held in some parts of the world. When many different races of people can carry on business under the name "American," and do it legally, too, it is not surprising that Americans do not recognize some of the descriptions of American methods which appear in the foreign Press. If the reputation of American business has suffered, it is because something other than American methods have been used under the American name...

    "The British did this," "The Germans did this," when it was the International Jew who did it, the nations being but the marked spaces on his checker board. Today, around the world the blaming word is heard, "The United States did this. If it were not for the United States the world would be in a better shape. The Americans are a sordid, greedy, cruel people."

    Why? Because the Jewish money power is centered here and is making money out of both our immunity and Europe's distress, playing one against the other; and because so many so-called "American business men" abroad today are not Americans at all-they are Jews.

Henry Ford raised, "the Jewish Question".

He states:

    The Jewish Question exists wherever Jews appear, says Theodor Herzl, because they bring it with them. It is not their numbers that create the Question, for there is in almost every country a larger number of other aliens than of Jews. It is not their much-boasted ability, for it is now coming to be understood that, give the Jew an equal start and hold him to the rules of the game, and he is not smarter than anyone else; indeed, in one great class of Jews the zeal is quenched when opportunity for intrigue is removed...

    It is not the Jewish people but the Jewish idea, and the people only as vehicles of the idea, that is the point at issue. In this investigation of the Jewish Question, it is Jewish influence and the Jewish Idea that are being discovered and defined.

And here we get to something. Anti-Semitism is not just a racial, ethic, or cultural hating of "Jews", it is a hate of "the Jewish idea".

This is important to understand because many people still use anti-Semitic speech, they do it not by saying, "I hate the Jews", but instead by speaking out against the "Jewish idea".

The task then in understanding anti-Semitism is in understanding what anti-Semitics consider to be "the Jewish idea" and why.

Ford states:

    The essence of the Jewish Idea to its influence on the labor world is the same as in all other departments-the destruction of real values in favor of fictitious values. The Jewish philosophy of money is not to "make money," but to "get money." The distinction between these two is fundamental. That explains Jews being "financiers" instead of "captains of industry." It is the difference between "getting" and "making."

The problem here is obvious.  What anti-Semites have done is to label a behavior that they don't like as "Jewish". They then consider anyone who engaged in that behavior to be acting "Jewish". Of course if 9 out of 10 people doing it are not Jews it makes no difference to the anti-Semite all of those other people are "Jews" by definition.

Jews then just become the bearer of the label for things that people do not like.

There is still much more to it though.

    Now, previous to the advent of Jewish socialistic and subversive ideas, the predominant thought in the labor world was to "make" things and thus "make" money. There was a pride among mechanics. Men who made things were a sturdy, honest race because they dealt with ideas of skill and quality, and their very characters were formed by the satisfaction of having performed useful functions in society. They were the Makers. And society was solid so long as they were solid. Men made shoes as exhibitions of their skill. Farmers raised crops for the inherent love of crops, not with reference to far-off money-markets. Everywhere THE JOB was the main thing and the rest was incidental.

    The only way to break down this strong safeguard of society-a creative laboring class of sturdy character- was to sow other ideas among it; and the most dangerous of all the ideas sown was that which substituted "get" for "make."

Here the idea is promoted that hard work, by definition is "non-Jewish" and that the drive for profits was a "Jewish" concept. Henry Ford and others blamed the "Jewish mentality" for corrupting capitalism. Their view was that laissez-faire had the potential to be good, but that it was the "Jewish idea" that was ruining it, in other words laissez-faire capitalism would be fine as long as people didn't intentionally try to maximize profits and reduce their own work apparently… I'm not sure how he, Henry Ford of all people, came to that conclusion.

Henry Ford outlines how, according to him, Jews had infiltrated the Christian Church and were subverting it. This was a view that had a direct impact on Hitler's later views and contributed to Hitler's view that there were "true Christians", the ones who were aware of and resisted the "Jewish influence" and bad Christians, the ones who worked with the Jewish and were victims of Jewish influence.

    The last place the uninstructed observer would look for traces of Jewish influence is in the Christian Church, yet if he fails to look there he will miss much. If the libraries of our theological seminaries were equipped with complete files of Jewish literary effort during recent decades, and if the theological students were required to read these Jewish utterances there would be less silly talk and fewer "easy marks" for Jewish propaganda in the American pulpit...

    It is perfectly in keeping with the Jewish World Program that this destructive influence should be sent out under Jewish auspices, and it is perfectly in keeping with non-Jewish trustfulness to accept the thing without looking at its source. The Church is now victim of a second attack against her, in the rampant Socialism and Sovietism that have been thrust upon her in the name of flabby and unmoral theories of "brotherhood" and in an appeal to her "fairness." The church has been made to believe that she is a forum for discussion and not a high place for annunciation.

    Jews have actually invaded, in person and in program, hundreds of American churches, with their subversive and impossible social ideals, and at last became so cocksure of their domination of the situation that they were met with the inevitable check.

It is this line of ideology that resulted in Hitler's eventual belief in the later part of his career, that even the churches themselves were a part of the Jewish problem. His belief was that it was apparent that "all of the Jewish idea" had not been wiped out in Germany so, therefore, it must be that he was too late and Jews had already "infected" the churches.

Ford goes on to discuss the Jewish influence in universities and schools.

    The revolutionary forces which head up in Jewry rely very heavily on the respectability which is given their movement by the adhesion of students and a few professors. It was so in Russia-everyone knows what the name "student" eventually came to signify in that country. The Jewish Chautauqua, which works almost exclusively in colleges and universities, together with Bolshevism in art, science, religion, economics and sociology, are driving straight through the Anglo-Saxon traditions and landmarks of our race of students. These are ably assisted by professors and clergymen whose thinking has been dislocated and poisoned by Jewish subversive influences in theology and sociology...

    The trouble with the colleges has progressed along precisely the same lines that have been described in connection with the churches. First, Jewish higher criticism in their destruction of young men's sense of respect for the ancient foundations; second, Jewish revolutionary social doctrines.

Essentially, what he saw as the problem in the schools was the use of critical analysis of society and the teaching of progressive ideology instead of conservatism.

Ford then goes on to explain that Jews are anti-American and that "anti-Americnaism" is "Jewish".

    More, the true and normal type of Jew believes that the influence of Americanism, or of any civilized Gentile state, is harmful to Judaism. That is a serious statement and no amount of Gentile assertion will be sufficient to confirm it. Indeed, it is such a statement as the Gentile mind could not have evolved, because the trend of Gentile feeling is all in the opposite direction, namely that Americanization is a good thing for the Jew. It is from authoritative Jewish sources we learn this fact, that what we call civilizing influences are looked upon as being at enmity with Judaism. It is not the Gentile who says that Jewish ideals, as ideals, are incompatible with the life of our country; it is the Jew who says so. It is he who inveighs against Americanism, not the American who inveighs against Judaism.

In his criticism of the "Jewish" objection to "Americanism" he essentially states that to question or be critical of American society or culture, is, of course, bad, and in fact, "Jewish".

He claims that secularization is part of the Jewish program to take over America.

    The warning has already gone out through the colleges. The system of Jewish procedure is already fully known. How simple it is ! First, you secularize the public schools -"secularize" is the precise word the Jews use for the process. You prepare the mind of the public school child by enforcing the rule that no mention shall ever be made to indicate that culture or patriotism is in any way connected with the deeper principles of the Anglo-Saxon religion. Keep it out, every sight and sound of it ! Keep out also every word that will aid any child to identify the Jewish race. Then, when you have thus prepared the soil, you can go into the universities and colleges and enter upon the double program of pouring contempt on all the Anglo-Saxon landmarks, at the same time filling the void with Jewish revolutionary ideas.

Ford then explains how Jews have promoted and "abused" democracy to further their cause, and explain that democracy is a Jewish tool.

    First, his essential lack of democracy. Jewish nature is autocratic. Democracy is all right for the rest of the world, but the Jew wherever he is found forms an aristocracy of one sort or another. Democracy is merely a tool of a word which Jewish agitators use to raise themselves to the ordinary level in places where they are oppressed below it; but having reached the common level they immediately make efforts for special privileges, as being entitled to them- a process which the late Peace Conference.

Ford then explains that it is Jews who are behind attacks on Christianity in America, and goes on to list things such as protesting against the use of Christian phrases in government speech and on government property.

    Under cover of the ideal of Liberty we have given the Jews liberty to attack Liberty. What America has been tolerating is intolerance itself. Let us look rapidly down the years and see one phase of that attack. It is the attack upon Christianity.

Ford then goes on to attack the Jewish ties to socialism and communism and the role of Jews in the Bolshevik Revolution.

    The power house of Communist influence and propaganda in the United States is in the Jewish trade unions which, almost without exception, adhere to a Bolshevik program for the respective industries and for the country as a whole. The fact proves most embarrassing to the Jewish leaders in the recognized political parties very frequently. It is bad enough that Russian Bolshevism, Communism, should be so predominantly Jewish, but to confront the ; same situation in the United States is a problem which Jewish leaders have to use much ingenuity and deception to explain away or avoid. Yet the International Jew of America cannot be absolved from bearing sole responsibility for it. Russian Bolshevism came out of the East Side of New York where it was fostered by the encouragement-the religious, moral and financial encouragement - of Jewish leaders.

    Leon Trotsky (Braunstein) was an East Sider. The forces which fostered what he stood for centered in the Kehillah and the American Jewish Committee. Both were interested in the work he set out to do-the overthrow of an established government, one of the allies of the United States in world war one. Russian Bolshevism was helped to its objective by Jewish gold from the United States-and by the ignorance and indolence of the Gentile citizens of the United States whose crimes of omission are almost as grave as those of bolshevik commission.

In so attacking the socialist movement, labor unions were also attacked as "Jewish" institutions.

The ideas set forth in Henry Ford's work should be seen more as a documentation of popular anti-Semitic beliefs of the time. They serve as a good illustration of what exactly anti-Semitism was, and still is. Henry Ford was by no means the only man to put such ideas in writing, but his publications were popular and served to spread the ideology, in fact he was very popular among the Nazis and received The Grand Cross of the Order of the German eagle from Hitler for his birthday in 1938.


Ford receiving his medal at his office in Michigan

Ford's books were also very popular in all of Germany, especially with the Hitler Youth, and contributed significantly to anti-Semitism among the Germans due to its documentary style approach that made it appear as though there was actually a real Jewish conspiracy to take over the world.

At the Nuremberg Trials Baldur Von Shirach claimed that Henry Ford was the primary inspiration for his anti-Semitism.

Shirach, a former Nazi youth leader, stated: "You have no idea what a great influence this book had on the thinking of the German youth…I read Henry Ford's book 'The International Jewry'…and became anti-Semitic."

Winston Churchill also wrote about Jewish threat to modern society in his 1920 article Zionism versus Bolshevism, which was published in British newspapers. Churchill was not "racially" anti-Semitic or opposed to Jews in general, however he articulated what was popularly considered to be part of the "Jewish problem" in the world at the time.

    SOME people like Jews and some do not; but no thoughtful man can doubt the fact that they are beyond all question the most formidable and the most remarkable race which has ever appeared in the world.

    And it may well be that this same astounding race may at the present time be in the actual process of producing another system of morals and philosophy, as malevolent as Christianity was benevolent, which, if not arrested would shatter irretrievably all that Christianity has rendered possible. It would almost seem as if the gospel of Christ and the gospel of Antichrist were destined to originate among the same people; and that this mystic and mysterious race had been chosen for the supreme manifestations, both of the divine and the diabolical.

    The National Russian Jews, in spite of the disabilities under which they have suffered, have managed to play an honorable and successful part in the national life even of Russia. As bankers and industrialists they have strenuously promoted the development of Russia's economic resources, and they were foremost in the creation of those remarkable organizations, the Russian Co-operative Societies. In politics their support has been given, for the most part, to liberal and progressive movements, and they have been among the staunchest upholders of friend-ship with France and Great Britain

    In violent opposition to all this sphere of Jewish effort rise the schemes of the Inter-national Jews. The adherents of this sinister confederacy are mostly men reared up among the unhappy populations of countries where Jews are persecuted on account of their race. Most, if not all, of them have forsaken the faith of their forefathers, and divorced from their minds all spiritual hopes of the next world. This movement among the Jews is not new. From the days of Spartacus--Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It played, as a modern writer, Mrs. Webster, has so ably shown, a definitely recognizable part in the tragedy of the French Revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the Nineteenth Century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.

So, what we have now seen is exactly what the charges against Jews are. The charges are that Jews promote liberalism, equality, communism, socialism, secularism, are anti-patriotic, greedy, liars, and thieves, who control banking and finance and have corrupted capitalism. Though the ideas of capitalism and communism are total opposites Jews are charged with being the root cause of the problems that exist in both, and in fact some argued that the Communist movement was some sort of Jewish plot to control finance and enslave the world, despite the fact that they already were arguing that Jews already controlled finance and had enslaved the world through capitalist finance.

This is what Jews were charged with being responsible for, and this is also exactly what fascism was opposed to.

The question then becomes, which came first, the chicken or the egg?  Did fascism become anti-Semitic because of the Jewish association with these ideas or did the Jewish association with these ideas shape the positions of the fascists?

I think that it is the former. The perceived problems of the early 20th century by were very real. In the early 20th century secularism was growing, laissez-faire capitalism was out of control, the Bolshevik Revolution was spreading socialism world wide, religion was being seriously challenged by science, liberalism was seen as a decadent force by conservatives, and there was a real possibility of socialists taking democratic control of many parts of Europe, including Italy, Germany and Spain.

Many people did not like these things based on their own merits, it's not that they didn't like them because of their supposed association with Jews. However, once these fascist regimes came to power anti-Semitism was embraced, especially in Germany, because it was part of the culture and the association between Jews and these social and economic issues was culturally embedded, and the situation was also initially portrayed as a war between Christianity and "the Jews."

Shortly before the German invasion of the Soviet Union an editorial was published, Bolshevism and Synagogue, which demonized the Soviets as anti-Christians, which they were, and used the Bible as a source of anti-Semitism. 

    Even at the beginning of the Bolshevist revolution, Christian churches were destroyed or turned into movie theaters or warehouses and Christian priests bestially murdered.

    But the synagogues, called dens of thieves in the New Testament of the Bible, were preserved, and the rabbis could continue to pray their prayers of hatred and curse Christianity in the name of their god Jahwe.

Obviously the fact that Germans were appealed to on a Christian level is an indication of the role of Christianity in German society and German anti-Semitism.

A number of anti-Semitic children's books were printed in Germany under the Nazi regime as well, which have references that are helpful in understanding Nazi anti-Semitism.

In 1936 the book Trust No Fox on his Green Heath And
No Jew on his Oath was printed and used in schools.



   
Sections of the  book read:

    At the creation of the world
    The Lord God conceived the races:
    Red Indians, Negroes and Chinese,
    And Jew-boys too, the rotten crew.
    And, we were also on the scene:
    We Germans midst this motley medley-
    He gave them all a piece of earth
    To fill in the sweat of their brow.
    But the Jew-boy went on strike at once!
    For the devil rode him from the first...

    The Devil brought them to our midst,
    Like thieves they stole into our land
    Hoping to get the upper hand...

    From the start the Jew has been
    A murderer, said Jesus Christ.
    And as Our Lord died on the cross
    God the Father knew no other race
    To torment His Son to death,
    He chose the Jews for this...

    On Sabbath he won't move a finger;
    The stupid "goy" does all the work!
    And even to put out the light
    He calls the "goy" to do the job.
    Did you know that, my Christian friends?..

    Other tricks performs the Jew,
    Inspired by his Satanic blood.
    Urged on by just this meanness.
    He's fooled the lot of us Germans,
    But he shan't do that any more.

The Nazis also taught that Jesus was in fact not a Jew, as this recounting of an event by a Nazi author, where a pastor tried to persuade a room full of Germans against anti-Semitism, describes:

    "'Well, the pastor wants us to believe that Christ was a Jew. But we are good Christians who paid attention to what we were taught.

    We learned that Christ was God's son, not the son of some Hebrew. Besides that, the Catholic Church teaches that Holy Mary, the mother of Christ, died a virgin. That means she never had sexual relations with a man, certainly not with a flat-footed garlic Jew. And thirdly, according to Catholic doctrine, Christ was born by a miracle, not by the normal natural process. Finally, the Church teaches that 'Holy Spirit came upon' the Virgin Mary. He must therefore be regarded as the father or source of Christ. Surely not even the pastor wants to tell us that the Holy Spirit is a Jew!'

    His argument resulted in explosive laughter. Defeated on his own ground, the red-faced ultramontane Jew-lover had no choice but to disappear as fast as possible. Only later did he remember that he had left his hat and coat behind."
"At any given moment there is an orthodoxy, a body of ideas which it is assumed all right-thinking people will accept without question. It is not exactly forbidden to state this or that or the other, but it is "not done".

Henry Ford was a a big enemy of Jews for a lot of reasons, some of which were hinted at in the article.

1.)  In the early days, trade unions were definitely Bolshevik-influenced.  Jews were just using the same template in the U.S. as in Russia, which was to inflame the labor class.  After that didn't lead to revolution, they turned their attention to blacks, women and gays.  Notice how all of those movements have Marxist Jew leadership?

2.)  He was a guest on the Peace Ship to help end WWI.  Among other guests were industrialist and banking Jews, who were openly boasting about the profiteering from the war, not soon after it left the harbor.  This is what got Henry Ford started with the Dearborn Independent and The International Jew.  You probably won't get that version of events at Wikipedia though.

3.)  He's a gentile, who actually accomplished great things.  Notice how even on the History Channel, there are attempts to minimize what he did.  "Oh, the ancient Chinese used mass production techniques to build tools and arms."  They might well have, but Henry Ford utilized this approach for automotive production.  Meanwhile, his Jew contemporaries were busy stealing patents. 

For these reasons, and probably more, the Chosen have employed their smear tactics ever since.

The teaching that Jesus was not a Jew was an integral part of
German religious education during the Nazi era.



"So Spoke Jesus Christ"

The cartoon above was published on the front page of the Nazi publication Der Stuermer and depicts a group of Hitler Youth marching forth to drive the forces of evil from the land. The caption under the cartoon reads, "We youth step happily forward facing the sun... With our faith we drive the devil from the land."  The "devil", in this case, was implied to be the Jews.

Now the question becomes, did the Fascist leaders really believe their own propaganda about Jews? I believe that the answer is yes, at least in the case of the Nazis, though the Italians seem more to just be going along with the Nazis at Hitler's request.

There is no question that many people believed in all of the ideas of anti-Semitism. It should be no surprise then that the Nazis believed it themselves as well.

I have no doubt that Hitler honestly believed that he was saving the world, or at least Europe, by eliminating Jews.

Hitler's first known letter about Jews was written in 1919, well before he came to power. His belief that Jews were a threat to Western Civilization was real. His anti-Semitism was not just a political ploy on his part, it was his real mission and the meaning behind his actions.

In the closing statements of the letter he wrote to his military superior he wrote:

    This very fact serves to deprive the Republic of the inner support of the spiritual forces any nation needs very badly. Hence the present leaders of the nation are forced to seek support from those who alone have benefited and continue to benefit from changing the form of the German state, and who for that very reason become the driving force of the Revolution -- the Jews. Disregarding the Jewish threat, which is undoubtedly recognized even by today's leaders (as various statement from prominent personalities reveal), these men are forced to accept Jewish favors to their private advantage and to repay these favors. And the repayment does not merely involve satisfying every possible Jewish demand, but above all preventing the struggle of the betrayed people against its defrauders, by sabotaging the antisemitic movement.

    Yours truly,

    Adolph Hitler

In the letter he also stated:

    To begin with, the Jews are unquestionably a race, not a religious community.

In Mein Kampf Hitler explained his "revelation" about the political situation in Germany:

    I gradually became aware that the Social Democratic press was directed predominantly by Jews.... I swallowed my disgust and tried to read this type of Marxist press production, but my revulsion became so unlimited in so doing that I endeavored to become more closely acquainted with the men who manufactured these compendiums of knavery. From the publisher down, they were all Jews. I took all the Social Democratic pamphlets I could lay hands on and sought the names of their authors: Jews. I noted the names of the leaders: by far the greatest part were likewise members of the "chosen" people....

    One thing had grown clear to me: the party with whose petty representatives I had been carrying on the most violent struggle for months was, as to leadership, almost exclusively in the hands of a foreign people; for, to my deep and joyful satisfaction I had at last come to the conclusion that the Jew was no German. Only now did I become thoroughly acquainted with the seducer of our people.... If, with the help of his Marxist creed, the Jew is victorious over the other peoples of the world, his crown will be the funeral wreath of humanity and this planet will, as it did thousands of years ago, move through the ether devoid of men. Eternal Nature inexorably avenges the infringement of her commands.

    Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.

Here Hitler has discussed his "revelation" about the "Jewish problem". Hitler was opposed to Marxism politically and here he tells the story about how he made the connection between Jews and Marxists in Germany, which according to the story is why he took up action against Jews, because he saw them as the root source of Marxist political ideology in Germany. There is actually some truth to the connection between Marxism and Jews, Karl Marx was of Jewish heritage, and many other prominent Marxist leaders and writers were Jews, however there were also plenty of non-Jews who were involved in the movement as well. It is often noted that the Bolsheviks who carried out the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia were largely comprised of Jews, but that is also partially because Russia had the largest Jewish population in the world at the time and the Czarist government was actively persecuting Jews.

Likewise Hitler's last testament further indicates his beliefs about Jews.

    It is untrue that I or anyone else in Germany wanted war in 1939. It was wanted and provoked solely by international statesmen either of Jewish origin or working for Jewish interests. I have made too many offers for the limitation and control of armaments, which posterity will not be cowardly enough always to disregard, for responsibility for the outbreak of this war to be placed on me. Nor have I ever wished that, after the appalling First World War, there would ever be a second against either England or America. Centuries will go by, but from the ruins of our towns and monuments the hatred of those ultimately responsible will always grow anew against the people whom we have to thank for all this: international Jewry and its henchmen.

    Only three days before the outbreak of the German-Polish war I proposed a solution of the German-Polish problem to the British Ambassador in Berlin - international control as in the case of the Saar. This offer, too, cannot be lied away. It was only rejected because the ruling clique in England wanted war, partly for commercial reasons and partly because it was influenced by the propaganda put out by international Jewry.

    I have left no one in doubt that if the people of Europe are once more treated as mere blocks of shares in the hands of these international money and finance conspirators, then the sole responsibility for the massacre must be borne by the true culprits: the Jews.
    - April 29, 1945

Towards the end of the war Hitler also commented that his gift to humanity would be the elimination of Jews from Europe, and that if he were able to fully eliminate Jews from Europe there was hope, whether Germany won the war or not, for Europe to be saved.

So, his anti-Semitism was present early on and it was a genuine belief of his. Furthermore it was a genuine belief of the other members of Nazi leadership as well.

What has to be understood is that the Nazis honestly believed that what they were doing was right.

To emphasize this I will highlight a few passages from Joseph Goebbels Diaries:

    I had a few hours' time tonight to read Wrising's new book, The Continent Without Limit. Wirising gives us a picture of American life, American business, culture, and politics. The material he has assembled is truly shattering. Roosevelt is one of the worst enemies of modern culture and civilization. If we do not succeed in definitely defeating the enemy, made up of Bolshevism, plutocracy, and lack of culture, the world will be headed for densest darkness. That is the reason why we must courageously and uncompromisingly take all inconveniences and hardships upon ourselves. We are actually carrying in our hands the torch that brings light to humanity.
      - March 11,1942

    The House of Lords has once again taken a stand against the Arabs and for the Jews. It is surprising how much Jewish influence there is among the English people, especially the upper crust, which is hardly English in character any longer. The chief reason is no doubt the fact that these Upper Ten Thousand have become so infested with the Jewish virus by Jewish marriages that they can hardly think in English.
     - March 12, 1942

    A judgment is being visited upon the Jews that, while barbaric, is fully deserved by them. The prophesy which the Fuehrer made about them for having brought on a new world war is beginning to come true in a most terrible manner. One must not be sentimental in these matters. If we did not fight the Jews, they would destroy us. It's a life-and-death struggle between Aryan race and the Jewish bacillus.
    - March 27, 1942

    The most recent act of sabotage [in France] against a German military train resulted in several deaths and will be punished with severe reprisals. The number of people to be shot will be doubled, and over a thousand Communists and Jews will be put into freight cars and shipped East. There they will soon cease to see any fun in disturbing Germany's policies for order in Europe.
     - April 20, 1942

    The Jews aren't always so clever as they would like themselves to believe. Whenever they are in danger they are the stupidest devils.
    - April 24, 1942

I could go on, but the point should be clear. These are excerpts from the personal diary of a top Nazi official, as well as statements made by Hitler when they were not intended for any propaganda purpose. The Nazis believed in themselves, they believed that what they were doing was right and good.

They believed that what they were doing was right because they opposed liberalism, Marxism, democracy, secularism, atheism, labor unions, and finance capitalism and they believed that Jews were at the root of all of these "problems".

Thus they honestly believed that by eliminating Jews they would eliminate these "problems".

This is why understanding fascism and anti-Semitism is much more important than just acknowledging the labels. You have to understand what ideas lie behind those labels, and when you see the ideas behind the labels you can then actually recognize these ideologies as they still present themselves today. The problem is not just "hating Jews", which is a problem in and of itself, the problem goes deeper into the the opposition to the ideas themselves. As long as significant numbers of people continue to hold essentially the same views as the Nazis, though perhaps not associated with Jews,  the problem of social fascism will still continue.

Committing Atrocities and Genocide


Ever since World War II the question has been raised, how could the Germans have done what they did? Why did so many people go along with such horrific treatment of other human beings? All too often the easy or comfortable answer is given, even today. The easy answers, however, often don't reflect the truth, and therefore don't help us to better understand the situation.

Anyone who knows about German culture knows that Germany was one of the most advanced countries in the world in the early 20th century. Germans were extremely well educated, among the most highly educated people in the world at that time actually. The Germans are also a historically caring people, deeply rooted in community and family values. German culture at that time was not a historically brutal or cruel culture, in fact it was the opposite, it was a historically kind and caring culture, though often mischaracterized by Germanophobes. Strict and orderly - yes, but not callous.

How is it that one of the most civilized and advanced societies in the world, with a generally kind hearted population, participated in some of the worst acts of organized cruelty in human history?

Many people have put the blame on "hate".

Hate, however, is not the real answer, and much of the approach to demonizing Nazism has led to great misunderstanding of Nazi society. This understanding is vital for not only understanding Nazism, but for understanding large social movements in general.

When one takes a broad view of German society in the 1930s, what is noticed is actually the lack of hate rhetoric and the prevalence of a strong sense of community and kinship. The Nazi movement was not built on hate, but really it was built on a type of love. The swastika, in fact, was a recognized symbol of peace and good luck at the time that the Nazis adopted it.


Perhaps the best way to think of the Nazi Party is to think of it as a giant national fraternity. In fact, the Nazi Party grew out of a type of fraternity, the Thule Society, and many of today's fraternities have a lot in common with Nazi Party customs. Most of today's college fraternities have their origins in late 19th and early 20th century secret societies. The types of rituals common in fraternities were popular in the secret societies of the 18th and 19th century.


Fraternities, of course, have a history of hazing problems, fighting amongst each other, being very exclusive, and being highly structured. The Nazi Party was effectively like a fraternity on steroids that took over political control of the State. In addition to the negative aspects of fraternities, however, fraternities are also known for the formation of extremely close bonds between members, fostering a sense of brotherhood and loyalty, and creating a sense of empowerment among members as well as a belief in an ideal. Fraternities often seek to create the "ideal man" and instill a sense of virtue in their members.

The practices of fraternities are also very similar to the practices of the Nazi Party: Induction rituals, historical training, learning and singing fraternity songs, fostering an animosity towards a rival fraternity, bonding retreats, initiation rituals, oaths, codes, building projects, taking on challenges, working together, etc.

All of this serves to form a bond between the members and engender a feeling of security, loyalty, love and commitment among the members. This is really what was taking place in Germany during the reign of the Nazi regime.


    Poster Reads: "Health, child protection, fighting poverty, aiding travelers, community, helping mothers: These are the tasks of the National Socialist People's Charity. Become a member!"

The Nazis did not capture the hearts and minds of the German people with hate speeches, they did it by fostering this strong sense of community, loyalty, progress, and love among the people. What historians note about Nazi Germany was the strong sense of happiness and purpose among the people.


This was especially true of the youth.


Imagine Boy Scout and Girl Scout camp, and now imagine that your entire life all year long is Boy Scout or Girl Scout camp. That was something like what the youth of Nazi Germany experienced. They wore uniforms every day, they marched in single file line to and from school every day singing songs and holding hands; they participated in charity works and skills training on a regular basis; they recited oaths and pledges on a regular basis, and, most of all, they were encouraged to love one another, as long as they were German, not Jewish or some other minority.


The children in Nazi Germany, as long as they were "Aryan" and liked to fit in, really, really enjoyed themselves. They had an excellent life. Some of the really common exercises for children were choreographed dance and parade patterns. These group activities really gave the children a sense of power and a sense of being a part of something bigger. This built a strong sense of cooperation and community among the children, who formed very close and deep friendships with each other. Forming deep social bonds and a strong sense of trust among Germans was a major part of the Nazi movement.


Building trust was of course very important for the political movement - trust in leadership, and trust of Germans in each other as well - a sense that together, as Germans, they could rely on each other and accomplish anything.


German girls in trust building exercise

This is the real social setting of Nazi Germany; it wasn't a setting of hate and fear, not for the Germans. To the average German, until shortly before the outbreak of the war, their experience with the Nazi Party and with the German society of the time as a whole was extremely positive and engendered a great sense of pride and love.

The Nazis took this to a religious type of level. Anyone who has participated in a powerful mass movement will be familiar with the special sense of power that comes from being "a part of something bigger". An actual physical sensation is experienced as people feel joined to those around them, almost as if by electricity. A feeling as though together you are all united and you are all in complete harmony. This is an important element of many religions, and it is this feeling that groups such as Christian fundamentalists make heavy use of in their organizations. When you see fundamentalist Christians at a service in large masses, swaying back and fourth with their hands in the air and their eyes closed, they are often experiencing this feeling of social unity. This feeling is produced by chemicals in the brain and can actually become addictive.

The Nazi regime engendered this type of feeling in a large segment of the German nation. This powerful, electric, feeling of social unity and love for Germany, fellow Germans, and the Fuhrer, swept the country under the leadership of Adolph Hitler.

It is this powerful feeling of love and unity that made the atrocities of the Nazi regime possible.

The Jews increasingly became outsiders, because they were never a part of the Nazi Party, and the Nazi Party had become like a national fraternity. Just as people in fraternities often look down on non-members naturally, this same phenomenon took place in Germany. In addition to this natural attitude towards non-Nazis, the Jews were increasingly portrayed as a threat to the unity and community that had been created in Germany. It's important to remember that the major actions against the Jews didn't begin until 5 or more years after the Nazi Party had gained control of the country, and that during that time the focus of the party was not on spreading hate, but on building community and loyalty.

Similar to the way that a lover may commit murder in a crime of passion, or the way that fraternity members may commit violence out of a sense of passion for the group, Germans turned against the Jews because they were viewed as threats to the unity and strength of the German society that they had grown to love. The Germans had become so attached to their sense of community, and so addicted to the religious sense of purpose and social bonds that they felt as Nazis, they were driven to take any action they believed was necessary to preserve this feeling and to protect this sense of community.

It is impossible to understand the actions of the Germans against minorities, and the loyalty of the Germans to Adolph Hitler, without understanding this real sense of passion and community that had been engendered in the German people. By viewing Nazism primarily as an institution of hate the reality of the movement is missed and it is impossible to understand why it was really so powerful.

    Now I see a little better how Nazism overcame Germany. It was what most Germans wanted - or, under pressure of combined reality and illusion, came to want. They wanted it; they got it; and they liked it. I came back home a little afraid for my country, afraid of what it might want, and get, and like, under pressure of combined reality and illusions. I felt - and feel - that it was not German Man that I had met, but Man. He happened to be in Germany under certain conditions. He might be here, under certain conditions. He might, under certain conditions, be I.

I hear you Wulfgar. My Dad was a Henry Ford admirer and yes, I knew he was a gentile. Unfortunately I was too young then to understand anything about politics. I hardly watch TV.

History is bunk

Meaning

Live in the present, not the past.

Origin

Ford (1863 - 1947) was the founder of the Ford Motor Company, the father of the assembly line and of mass-production, and one of the wealthiest and most famous people who ever lived. However, history is bunk is probably one of the two things that most of us can recall that he ever said. The other being "People can have the Model T in any colour - so long as it's black".

What he actually said about history was:

    "History is more or less bunk. It's tradition. We don't want tradition. We want to live in the present, and the only history that is worth a tinker's damn is the history that we make today." (Chicago Tribune, 1916).

His gung ho, don't concern yourself with the past - live in the present philosophy was also apparent in a couple of other quotations:

    "You can't build a reputation on what you are going to do."
    "If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can't, you're right."

In the Series 3, Episode 7 edition of the BBC's QI quiz show, Stephen Fry made this comment:

    There's no evidence that Ford actually ever said, "Any color you like so long as it's black."

Fry's researchers would do well to read Ford's autobiography, My Life and Work, 1922, which includes this passage:

    In 1909 I announced one morning, without any previous warning, that in the future we were going to build only one model, that the model was going to be "Model T," and that the chassis would be exactly the same for all cars, and I remarked:

    "Any customer can have a car painted any colour that he wants so long as it is black."

     

It is likely that Ford was being somewhat playful in making that remark. Model Ts were, in fact, offered in a choice of colour early in the car's lifetime around 1908, and again after 1926. The statement was true when Ford's biography was published, in 1922, and when he was cutting costs by using a type of quick-drying paint that was only then available in black.



Ford Peace Ship

On the outbreak of the First World War in Europe, Henry Ford, the wealthy American businessman, soon made it clear he opposed the war and supported the decision of the Woman's Peace Party to organize a peace conference in Holland. After the conference Ford was contacted by America's three leading anti-war campaigners, Jane Addams, Rosika Schwimmer, Oswald Garrison Villard, and Paul Kellogg. They suggested that Ford should sponsor an international conference in Stockholm to discuss ways that the conflict could be brought to an end.

Ford came up with the idea of sending a boat of pacifists to Europe to see if they could negotiate an agreement that would end the war. He chartered the ship Oskar II, and it sailed from Hoboken, New Jersey on 4th December, 1915. The Ford Peace Ship reached Stockholm in January, 1916, and a conference was organized with representatives from Denmark, Holland, Norway, Sweden and the United States.

However, unable to persuade representatives from the warring nations to take part, the conference was unable to negotiate an Armistice.

I hear you Wulfgar. My Dad was a Henry Ford admirer and yes, I knew he was a gentile. Unfortunately I was too young then to understand anything about politics. I hardly watch TV.

Also forgot to mention is that there was likely an insane amount of jealousy among Jews about Henry Ford's success.  On any Jew propaganda site, in regard to what they refer to as "anti semitism," there's always an accusation of being "jealous of Jews' 'success.'"  Seriously, has anybody here ever heard anybody express that view?  Then, upon further examination, how is that "success" measured? 

From what we know about Jew nature, it's strictly in terms of wealth and power.  In essence, the Jew has to steal, connive or usurp what was built by others.  When, they secretly boast about their control of newspaper, radio, television, etc., isn't it ironic that none of those inventions came from Jewish hands?

That could have been the 'Face of America' if Mein Fuhrer had won the war



Now we are a cesspool of multicultural garbage, on the verge of economic collapse, a race war, and the juden sits back and watches the dogs fight

Jealousy? No doubt about that.

They own the (mostly stolen) wealth through lies and deception. This is precisely what history has told us. Their success is cohesion, uniting and sticking together, something most folks are sorely lacking, due to divided religious belief systems and creating animosity among each other (see religious wars). Divide and conquer!

There is only one God, who needs all these religions?

The irony is that jews think their blood is the best.
Nobody gets paid to tell the truth.
