“They were the origins of the international banking cabal we face today.”
First of all, I belong to a Jewish congregation. I am merely reporting a sequence of historical events; I am not attempting to justify them.
Read the book.
Some truth to that, attempts to portray him as "right wing" in the context of the GOP are a fraud, but common.
Take one Valu-Pak of Reynolds and call me in the morning.
Patrick J. Buchanan is a man whoif he ever had ithas lost his ability to recognize evil and now finds himself, in Milton's words, "in wand'ring mazes lost".
So why even mention it in this context? Pat IS trying to justify, or at least rationaize, Hitler's actions. Don't cross that line.
Shame on the Brits, but irrelevant.
Every time Pat speaksof the “Dear Leader”,I’m reminded of
the old Nazi in the play “The Producers.”
How are you so sure of his motives? I am no fan of Buchannan (although I agree with his stand on illegal immigration), but some of what he says is accurate, but lacking in insight as to causes. I really do suggest Antelman's book, because it explains a very great deal about an important sweep of history we are simply not taught, particularly as regards Eastern Europe. Many of the documents that substantiate it have only come to light since the fall of the Soviet Union.
For example, did you know that Ataturk was a direct descendant of Zevi?
Oh, and do me a favor, the very word, "holocaust" was derived from the Greek root, "holokaustos," meaning, "a holy and accepted burnt offering." Before 1949, there was no other definition or usage in the Greek lexicon. A "burnt offering" is hardly what I would favor calling the murder of millions by burning them alive. The word "holocaust" is offensive to the Orthodox, but they accept that it is the common usage. The correct word is "Shoah," meaning "disaster."
How anyone can ignore all of the evidence that Hitler was planning for war from the beginning is beyond me...
The British Empire had already been in decline for a long while before Churchill.
Have you read Moses Mendelsohn's ordination papers? I have. Have you read Abraham Geiger's acceptance speech? I have. Do you know much of the German communist revolution in 1848? Do you know where those who were expelled came? Or where Marx' descendants ended up?
Read Dr. Antelman's book (books, it's two volumes), really, it's an amazing story.
What does one’s familial descent have to do with a political movement? Modern Communism was a post Industrial Revolution modification of Enlightenment utopianism going back to The French Revolution and before. Your ‘Conspiracy of Rabbis’ story would make good fodder for Dan Brown.
Spare me. He has taken a blame-America, blame-the-West stance for our current war - and, mixed in with his anti-Semetic comments in the past, leads to a logical conclusion - that he is rationalizing away the Holocaust. As other posters have noted, Hitler was calling for an end to the Jews long before he invaded Poland and was acting against them. I really, REALLY would step back from the line you are taking here.
The traditional line is "Some of my best friends are Jewish"...
Although we don't understand it, we're pretty familiar with the phenomena of self hating Jews here on FR.
the historic accommodation the Germans had shown for the Jewish people
Ever wonder how "Einstein" became a nice name for a Jew?
German repression of
the Christ-killer Jews goes back at least as far as the middle ages. Anyone with a Jewish name was banned from many jobs, including anything in banking, government, and owning many private sector businesses.
There was an 'out': if a Jew converted (even if only on paper) and changed his name to a 'decent German name' the restrictions were off.
Oh, one little thing? We have this list of approved names that are German enough. It's only a coincidence that all the names are double entendres.
Perfect. Win-win for the Krauts. Jews can't complain that they are totally locked out, we offered them a way to fully participate, and become German. That makes it OK to discriminate against the ones who won't swear loyalty to Germany. If they do take a funny name, and swear allegiance to Germany rather than Israel, we can still look down on them for their willingness to do anything for money.
Hitler didn't create German anti-semitism. He tapped into a deep wide and rich vein of hatred that was a core part of the German psyche for centuries.
And, Einstein? It means "One Testicle"...
Frankly I suspect Pat believes he is initiating an argument by analogy against the West and its fight against Islam. I expect him to side with Islam. Nothing would surprise me these days.
