Hitler's bad habits revealed
Belfast Telegraph ^ | 2/18/9 | Unknown to me

Posted on 02/20/2009 10:42:11 AM PST by bimboeruption

Adolf Hitler's "uncouth" personal conduct, including biting his nails during meals, are exposed today in secret intelligence papers.

The documents paint a picture of Hitler based on information from one of his wartime aides, who describes the Nazi leader as a solitary man "of extremely few but intense emotions" and "shocking" table manners.

The account by the unknown German officer, who kept the war diary at the Wolf's Lair military headquarters and dined with Hitler at least 30 times, form part of an end-of-war intelligence report discovered in an unknown house in the South West, which is to be sold at auction next month.

According to the informant, simply referred to as Lieutenant Colonel PW, Hitler "ate prodigious amounts of cake", which contributed to a "digestive disorder", and lost himself in thought during meals.

"Hitler eats rapidly, mechanically - for him food is merely an indispensable means of subsistence" he wrote.

"Quite often Hitler will sit there throughout the entire meal, turned to his own thoughts, seemingly without listening to the talk going on around him.

"However, he does follow the drift of the conversation vaguely, to him the conversation seems to have the effect that music has on others; it stimulates his thoughts and relaxes him."

Dated May 1945 - the year Hitler died - and marked "must be destroyed within 48 hours of reading", the report said the Fuhrer spoke "in a mellow baritone, without that raucous, unpleasant stridency of his public speeches".

But it added: "At the table and in his speech he shows many facets of his rather uncouth behaviour. He abstractedly bites his fingernails, he runs his index finger back and forth under his nose, and his table manners are little short of shocking."

Hitler also preferred stewed vegetables and fruit to meat, herbal tea to coffee and banned smoking in his presence, according to the informant.

The report also explores Hitler's personal life, saying he "at one time discoursed at length with PW on the reasons why he never married. Hitler told him that he could never allow the care for a family to interfere with his duties of statesmanship. Hitler truly believed himself wedded to the German nation".

Rumours about Hitler's homosexuality "are rumours and nothing more", the account said, adding: "If there was any such streak in him, it was a touch of passive masochism in his relationship with women."

Hitler had relationships with women, including "a Miss Braun", but the officer believed these to be platonic.

The dictator was also apparently a nocturnal man, "highly susceptible to exposure to the sun, which seemed to affect his brain in some way", and who threw "carpet-biting" tantrums, one of which featured a major who failed to pass on a message of retreat.

"When Hitler heard about this he threw one of his typical fits and greeted the major with the words, 'If you say a word in your defence, I'll have you shot'," the report said.

"Then he raved on and finally demoted the major to private."

The documents are due to go under the hammer on March 5 at Ludlow Racecourse in Shropshire, where the auctioneers Mullock's expect them to fetch between £500 and £1,000.

Sure, he started a war that killed 30 million, but Good Gawd, he bit his nails at the dinner table! That’s unforgivable!

Vegetarianism (other than for medical reasons) as a mark of mental instability...I rest my case.

Also, the consumption of Herbal Tea other than when stricken with a cold or flu....suspicious.

He didn’t eat meat because he suffered from severe flatulence and it aggrivated it.

“I have sympathy for Mr. Roosevelt, because he marches straight toward his objectives over congress, lobbies and bureauracy.” - Adolph Hitler, New York Times June 1933. After FDR confiscated gold bullion. I bet a shiny penny that barack does the same.

Let's see, Parkinson's, syphilis, amphetamine addict, bad table manners, that guy was messed up. And on top of that, he was an insane dictator who murdered 50 million people (including about 8 million of his own), and reduced his own country to rubble. Yup, a true socialist.

Actually a vegetarian diet, especially one with lots of beans and cruciferous vegetables would make one quite flatulent. Although a friend of mine once told me that the flatulence of meat eaters smells worse due to the way meat proteins break down in the human digestive tract. Not really wanted to investigate further, I took her word for it.

Sounds just like a left-wing Moonbat to me.

It's a liberal lie that Hitler and Mussolini were conservatives. They were both leftists. Mussolini picked up his ideas during his years in the Communist Party.

So he was narcissistic, crude, self-important, egotistical, anti-sympathetic, uncivil and figity?

And there have been stories of his homosexuality...

The comparisons to Obama are endless.

Yup. That he did give them. Hope and Change. Lotsa change. Like we’re getting in the U.S., thanks to Pelosi, Fwank, the Clintonistas and Obama; of course, the matrix of it is the “socialist visionaries”. Never forget, Saul Alinsky was Hitlery’s (Hillary’s) hero. They all hate the United States and ANY sovereign nation not yet “perfected” into a third world cesspool of tinpot dictators with them at the head of it.

Oh, and Obama’s gonna “call names” of local government officials who “waste” his stimulus money - like he did on Rezko back in Chicago with his boarded up “public housing” debacles facilitated by Obama as “Senator Obama”.

Hitler had a fling with his sister’s daughter, Geli Rabaul. The young woman either committed suicide or was murdered. The crime was never solved.

Incest ran in the family. Hitler’s father and mother were close relatives. Depending upon the actual paternity of Alois Hitler (Hitler’s father), he married his niece who was Hitler’s mother.

Don’t exaggerate.

This is my graduation of Dictator Evilness.

Mao (killed the most, confiscated all property)

Stalin (killed the second most, confiscated all property)

Hitler (killed the third most, selectively confiscated property)

The Liberals have made it one of there foremost projects to make the general public believe that Nazism is the most evil ideology.

I find this laughable not because I find Nazism palatable but because Communism is so much more evil. Nazi ideology specifically does not confiscate private property.

For the Nazi it was only necessary for the state to control the uses of private property. Precisely what the Liberals are doing to our country today.

Very true. Too bad teachers don’t teach the truth about political science:

Nationalist Socialists are Nazis.
Internationalist Socialists are Communists.
American socialists are Democrats.

LOL! And I thought I only shared his 4-20 birth-date. Male lesbians of America, unite!

Seriously though, Hitler was regarded like a rock star in “his” Deutcheland. Women threw undies, had a “Dr. Nick” providing timed packs of pills like Elvis, suffered severe intestinal distress like Kurt Cobain, surrounded himself with sycophants who told him what he wanted to hear and, worst of all, succumbed to his own propaganda. In the end he took the Cobain way out. He decided it was better to burn out than fade away.

See “South Park” for Hitler’s ongoing exploits in Hell.
