"Why did Hitler hate the Jews"

Postby Lamprecht » 4 years 4 months ago (Tue Jun 02, 2015 8:15 pm)

Everyone agrees that the Nazis devised a "Final Solution" to the "Jewish problem". It was allegedly formulated in January 1942 at the Wannsee Conference. Of course nothing in the Wannsee Protocols says anything about exterminating the Jews, just relocating them. Not to mention the various other issues with the document, but nevertheless it is understood that Hitler believed there was a "Jewish probem."

In the American public school system three different history classes had lessons about the Holocaust. At age 11, 15, and 17. When I was 11 they even brought in a Jew from Bergen-Belsen "Marion Blumenthal Lazan" to speak to the entire grade. We had to read her book "Four Perfect Pebbles." Regardless I would say most American children probably think about Hitler when they are asked "who was the most evil man in the world".

I searched on google "Why did Hitler hate the Jews" and here are some results from page 1. In other words, these quotes are what the average American schoolchild will read and accept as the "official storyline' by an 'authoritative source' on why Hitler hated Jews.

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/holocaust/ ... MEX87.html
In his autobiography, "Mein Kampf," Hitler traced his anti-Semitism to his years in Vienna. For Hitler, Jews came to represent everything he despised and feared. They were responsible for Capitalism and Socialism, for Modernism in art, which Hitler hated, for pornography, for the anti-nationalism of the press, and for Hitler's own personal failures.

Why did Hitler hate Jews?
An important term to mention here is ‘scapegoat’. Hitler and the Nazis said the Jews were responsible for huge events like losing World War One and the economic crisis. This was totally untrue.
...
Did Hitler invent hatred of Jews? No, Hitler built on and used antisemitic ideas that already existed. He was Austrian and grew up in Vienna where the mayor was extremely antisemitic and where hatred of Jews was widespread. His hatred of Jews cannot be tied down to a specific event in his life, for example a Jewish childhood friend, as many children think.
...
According to the Nazis the ‘Aryan race’ was the best and strongest race. Jews were of another inferior race. In fact so inferior that they were not considered to be ‘people’ by the Nazis.


http://www.hitlerschildren.com/article/ ... inate-them
If you were to ask 100 different individuals to answer the question “Why did Hitler hate Jews?” you would probably get one hundred different answers or variations thereof. The term “scapegoat” oftentimes comes to mind. By blaming the Jews for the economic crisis that Germany was suffering through as well as their defeat in World War I, Hitler targeted the Jews as the country’s main enemy. According to him, the Jewish people were directly responsible for Germany’s many problems.
The sad part about all of this is that so many individuals believed him or just stood by as he conducted his murderous campaign against the Jews.
...
Hitler was born in Austria and spent his childhood growing up in Vienna. At that time, the mayor of the city was anti-Semitic and ensured that his hatred of Jewish people would be widespread. However, this may not be the primary reason behind Hitler’s hatred of the Jews. Many individuals think that this hatred stemmed from a childhood friend that was Jewish. However, it cannot be relegated to a single event in his early life.
...
On a closing note, Hitler and his Nazi counterparts felt that humanity was divided into a number of different races but that theirs (the Aryan race) was not only the best, it was the strongest. He saw the Jews as an inferior race – so inferior that he did not see them as even being human and felt that the only solution was to eliminate them entirely.


http://holocaust-history.org/short-essa ... jews.shtml
Jews were the targets of the Holocaust because Hitler hated Jews and blamed them for all of the problems in the world. He especially blamed them for Germany's loss of World War I. Hitler told the German people that they could have won the first war, if Germany had not been "stabbed in the back" by the Jews and their conspirators.


So why did Hitler truly believe in a "Jewish Problem"? Notice

According to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_Rev ... E2%80%9319

9/10 of the leaders of the communist army in the attempted takeover of Germany were Jewish, despite being 1% of the population.


According to Winston Curchill's 1920 article "Zionism versus Bolshevism: A Struggle for the Soul of the Jewish People":
In violent opposition to all this sphere of Jewish effort rise the schemes of the International 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 civilisation 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 recognisable 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.
...
There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews. It is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others. With the notable exception of Lenin, the majority of the leading figures are Jews. Moreover, the principal inspiration and driving power comes from the Jewish leaders. Thus Tchitcherin, a pure Russian, is eclipsed by his nominal subordinate Litvinoff, and the influence of Russians like Bukharin or Lunacharski cannot be compared with the power of Trotsky, or of Zinovieff, the Dictator of the Red Citadel (Petrograd), or of Krassin or Radek – all Jews. In the Soviet institutions the predominance of Jews is even more astonishing. And the prominent, if not indeed the principal, part in the system of terrorism applied by the Extraordinary Commissions for Combating Counter-Revolution has been taken by Jews, and in some notable cases by Jewesses. The same evil prominence was obtained by Jews in the brief period of terror during which Bela Kun ruled in Hungary. The same phenomenon has been presented in Germany (especially in Bavaria), so far as this madness has been allowed to prey upon the temporary prostration of the German people. Although in all these countries there are many non-Jews every whit as bad as the worst of the Jewish revolutionaries, the part played by the latter in proportion to their numbers in the population is astonishing.
http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Zionism_versus_Bolshevism

So did Hitler simply hate Jews because they were the driving force of communism? Were there other reasons? Were those reasons legitimate?

Apparently, it stemmed from the First World War:

A new book published in Germany says the murder of six million Jews in the Second World War was due to Hitler's belief that they "stole" victory from the country in the First World War.

"In his madness Hitler was convinced that the 'Jewish poison' had done the same thing to his beloved Germany in 1918 what the 'cancer poison' had done to his beloved mother in 1907," wrote historian and journalist Dr Joachim Riecker.

Dr Riecker discounts previously held theories that Hitler began hating the Jews because a Jewish doctor called Eduard Bloch unsuccessfully treated his mother Klara.

OK well I am currently watching this film on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jzph809dgyc

I was surprised to hear about the relationship between Russian jews, the Russian Revolution, world war 1 and the way the jews brought America into that war to beat Germany even though they were at that time well treated by Germany.

It is clear Hitler found his dislike and hatred for the jews in that set of events. This later became an issue as he rose through the political ranks.

What is clear is that the jews manipulated massively behind the scenes and even managed to get countries like the US and GB on their side. They are able to punch well above their weight in that regard.

The holocaust was in some ways both pivotal in the recent history of the jews and but a step along the way.

The Khazar conspiracy-history is quite clear to me. The jews of eastern europe and now those who own and run Israel and possibly the US are one sub set of the religion but they are now what I would call indigenous jews of the region known as Palestine.

Actually, the question should be 'Why do people worldwide hate the Jews?'

While it is required that Hitler be labeled a 'madman who had irrational, unfounded, undeserved hatred towards Jews', the fact of the matter is that dislike of Jews is a global phenomenon, always has been. Consider that historically they have been generously permitted entry into numerous countries, yet ultimately they found themselves loathed and eventually tossed out of those countries.
IOW, Jews enaged in negative behaviour against the cultures who initially welcomed them, the host culture eventually developed a resentment and said 'Enough, how dare you, get out!'. Jews have reaped what they have sown time & time again. And true to form, Jews have historically lied and exaggerated the reactions against their behavior while ignoring their own responsibility.
And that was the case with National Socialist Germany. To the NSDAP the only realistic solution was removal of the offending group, hence the relocation of Jews to parts of eastern Europe during WII; which was meant as a temporary solution until war's end and a more definitive answer could be arrived at. Instead of sober self evaluation, what did Jews do? They invented the infamous fraud of "the Holocaust".
Now we have Jews with their own country, albeit a stolen and highly criminal state. The world is witnessing a ruthless monster apparently incapable of civilized behavior. In spite of measures by the controlled western press the world in general is outraged.
Jews need to look in the mirror, they only have themselves to blame for the low opinions of them everywhere. Can the entire world be wrong?

Revisionists are just the messengers, the impossibility of the "Holocaust" narrative is the message.

Mr. Darwin, that is absolute crapola. No one has said the Jews "deserved worse."

Perhaps we should also seek a broader context for this discussion, i.e., why the Jews (as a collective, not all individuals who happen to be of Jewish ethnicity) are so universally disliked. Obviously antisemitism did not begin or end with Hitler.

The degree of Hitler's antisemitism has been exaggerated. He did not like "the Jews" but had no particular animus against this or that individual who happened to be Jewish, such as his mother's physician.


Here is what Bernard Lazare, Jewish author of "Antisemitism: Its History and Causes", (published in the late 1890's) wrote about anti-Jewish sentiment:

Chapter One

GENERAL CAUSES OF ANTISEMITISM

"To make the history of antisemitism complete, omitting none of the manifestations of
this sentiment and following its divers phases and modifications, it is necessary to go
into the history of Israel since its dispersion, or, more properly speaking, since the
beginning of its expansion beyond the boundaries of Palestine.

Wherever the Jews settled after ceasing to be a nation ready to defend its liberty and
independence, one observes the development of antisemitism, or rather anti-Judaism;
for antisemitism is an ill chosen word, which has its raison d'être only in our day,
when it is sought to broaden this strife between the Jew and the Christians by
supplying it with a philosophy and a metaphysical, rather than a material reason. [u]If
this hostility, this repugnance had been shown towards the Jews at one time or in one
country only, it would be easy to account for the local causes of this sentiment. But
this race has been the object of hatred with all the nations amidst whom it ever settled.
Inasmuch as the enemies of the Jews belonged to divers races, as they dwelled far
apart from one another, were ruled by different laws and governed by opposite
principles; as they had not the same customs and differed in spirit from one another,
so that they could not possibly judge alike of any subject, it must needs be that the
general causes of antisemitism have always resided in Israel itself, and not in those
who antagonized it.
[/u]

This does not mean that justice was always on the side of Israel's persecutors, or that
they did not indulge in all the extremes born of hatred; it is merely asserted that the
Jews were themselves, in part, at least, the cause of their own ills.

Considering the unanimity of antisemitic manifestations, it can hardly be admitted, as
had too willingly been done, that they were merely due to a religious war, and one
must not view the strife against the Jews as a struggle of polytheism against
monotheism, or that of the Trinity against Jehovah. The polytheistic, as well as the
Christian nations combated not the doctrine of one sole God, but the Jew.
Which virtues or which vices have earned for the Jew this universal enmity? Why was
he ill-treated and hated alike and in turn by the Alexandrians and the Romans, by the
Persians and the Arabs, by the Turks and the Christian nations ? Because, everywhere
up to our own days the Jew was an unsociable being."

So you have the man who literally wrote the book on antisemitism candidly admitting that the chief (if not the sole) cause of antisemitism was the behavior of the Jews as a people.

Here is what Bernard Lazare, Jewish author of "Antisemitism: Its History and Causes", (published in the late 1890's) wrote about anti-Jewish sentiment:


Interesting quote. From another Jew W. D. Rubinstein in the Jewish Journal of Sociology, Vol. 42, nos. 1 and 2, 2000, p. 18-19
Over representation in the economic elite of a visible ethnic minority of the degree found in Poland and Hungary was certain to cause trouble regardless of the identity of the group: if Belgians, Bulgarians, or Bolivians had constituted 62 per cent of the highest income-earners of Hungary, rather than Jews, that would certainly engendered resentment against them ... To us [Jews], European antisemitism appears to be a weapon of the strong against the weak, a kind of ideological sadism. To European right-wing nationalists of the post-1870 period, however, antisemitism appeared to be a weapon of the weak against the strong, an attempt (as they saw it) by a downtrodden nation to regain control over its resources from a separate, distinctive minority which appeared to dominate the economy -- an aim not unlike that of anti-colonial movements in the Third World vis-a-vis the Europeans and foreign entrepreneurial minorities (like the Chinese throughout South-East Asia). The Zionist movement understood this perfectly well, however disturbing such a perspective may seem to us viewed with post-Holocaust eyes.

Moreover, research is most likely to demonstrate a very considerable actual Jewish over-representation in many other social and political areas which figured largely in the litany of continental antisemitism of the post-1870 period, especially Jewish participation in the radical left, the liberal professions, in journalism, and in the media.

Not only the Nazis devised a Final Solution to the Jewish Problem. The Zionists used to claim that their land grabbing colonial adventure in Palestine was the final/permanent solution to the Jewish problem, as they often put it, in what they called the "Zone of Distress" (i.e. the Jewries of Central and Eastern Europe targetted by Zionists as the future colonizers/settlers of Palestine). So the Zionists vitally needed a Jewish problem (no Jewish problem, no Zionism, and no need to spoliate the Palestinian Arabs), and they kept putting some iron up the Western democracies' backside during decades with their vital Jewish problem/martyrdom (supposed to justify the seizure of Palestine as a haven), until they finally reached their goal by being given a country of their own in the Holy Land.

Why did Hitler hate the Jews?
- For causing the German defeat in WW1 in order to secure the Balfour Declaration and the British Mandate over Palestine. (Zionist leader and future first Israeli President Chaim Weizmann ,him again, offered Winston Churchill to do it again by dragging America in the conflict during WW2.)
- For bringing and supporting Communism in Germany and almost putting the country and its citizens under the grip of the Soviet bloodbath.
- For seizing the reins of power (politics, economics, press, theater, etc.) in a bankrupted Germany.
- For bringing utter moral decadence in post-WW1 Germany.
- For being busy establishing a world domination only too visible today... :wink:

Some interesting quotes I found.

There are more quotations here: https://archive.is/8dCPq


Dr Nahum Goldmann, “Mein Leben als deutscher Jude” (“My Life as a German Jew”):
“German Jewry, which found its temporary end during the Nazi period, was one of the most interesting and for modern Jewish history most influential centers of European Jewry. During the era of emancipation, i.e. in the second half of the nineteenth and in the early twentieth century, it had experienced a meteoric rise…. It had fully participated in the rapid industrial rise of Imperial Germany, made a substantial contribution to it and acquired a renowned position in German economic life. Seen from the economic point of view, no Jewish minority in any other country, not even that in America could possibly compete with the German Jews. They were involved in large scale banking, a situation unparallelled elsewhere, and, by way of high finance, they had also penetrated German industry. A considerable portion of the wholesale trade was Jewish. They controlled even such branches of industry which is in general not in Jewish hands. Examples are shipping or the electrical industry, and names such as Ballin and Rathenau do confirm this statement. I hardly know of any other branch of emancipated Jewry in Europe or the American continent that was as deeply rooted in the general economy as was German Jewry. American Jews of today are absolutely as well as relatively richer than the German Jews were at the time, it is true, but even in America with its unlimited possibilities the Jews have not succeeded in penetrating into the central spheres of industry (steel, iron, heavy industry, high finance, shipping), as was the case in Germany.
Their position in the intellectual life of the country was equally unique. In literature, they were represented by illustrious names. The theatre was largely in their hands. The daily press, above all its internationally influential sector, was essentually owned by Jews or controlled by them. As paradoxical as this may sound today, after the Hitler era, I have no hesitation to say that hardly any section of the Jewish people has made such extensive use of the emancipation offered to them in the nineteenth century as the German Jews! In short, the history of the Jews in Germany from 1870 to 1933 is probably the most glorious rise that has ever been achieved by any branch of the Jewish people”. (p. 116) “The majority of the German Jews were never fully assimilated and were much more Jewish than the Jews in other West European countries”. (p.120)



Arthur Koestler, The God that Failed:
“As a result of these massive enforced financial reparations [in the Treaty of Versailles], by 1923 the situation in Germany became desperate and inflation on an astronomical scale became the only way out for the government. Printing presses were engaged to print money around the clock. In 1921 the exchange rate was 75 marks to the dollar. By 1924 this had become about 5 trillion marks to the dollar. This virtually destroyed the German middle class, reducing any bank savings to a virtual zero.” (p. 28)
Ullstein’s was a kind of super-trust; the largest organization of its kind in Europe, and probably In the world. They published four daily papers in Berlin alone, among these the venerable Vossische Zeitung, founded in the eighteenth century, and the B.Z. am Mittag, an evening paper. Apart from these, Ullstein’s published more than a dozen weekly and monthly periodicals, ran their own news service, their own travel agency, etc., and were one of the leading book publishers. The firm was owned by the brothers Ullstein – they were five, like the original Rothschild brothers, and like them also, they were Jews.” (p. 31)



Sir Arthur Bryant, Unfinished Victory (1940), pp. 136-144:
“It was the Jews with their international affiliations and their hereditary flair for finance who were best able to seize such opportunities. They did so with such effect that, even in November 1938, after five years of anti-Semitic legislation and persecution, they still owned, according to the Times correspondent in Berlin, something like a third of the real property in the Reich. Most of it came into their hands during the inflation. But to those who had lost their all this bewildering transfer seemed a monstrous injustice. After prolonged sufferings they had now been deprived of their last possessions. They saw them pass into the hands of strangers, many of whom had not shared their sacrifices and who cared little or nothing for their national standards and traditions. The Jews obtained a wonderful ascendancy in politics, business and the learned professions (in spite of constituting) less than one percent of the population. The banks, including the Reichsbank and the big private banks, were practically controlled by them. So were the publishing trade, the cinema, the theatres and a large part of the press all the normal means, in fact, by which public opinion in a civilized country is formed. The largest newspaper combine in the country with a daily circulation of four millions was a Jewish monopoly. Every year it became harder and harder for a gentile to gain or keep a foothold in any privileged occupation. At this time it was not the ‘Aryans’ who exercised racial discrimination. It was a discrimination that operated without violence. It was exercised by a minority against a majority. There was no persecution, only elimination. It was the contrast between the wealth enjoyed and lavishly displayed by aliens of cosmopolitan tastes, and the poverty and misery of native Germans, that has made anti-Semitism so dangerous and ugly a force in the new Europe. Beggars on horseback are seldom popular, least of all with those whom they have just thrown out of the saddle.”


Sarah Gordon, Hitler, Germans and the “Jewish Question” (1984):
“Jews were over-represented in business, commerce, and public and private service. They were especially visible in private banking in Berlin, which in 1923 had 150 private Jewish banks, as opposed to only 11 private non-Jewish banks. They owned 41% of iron and scrap iron firms and 57% of other metal businesses. Jews were very active in the stock market, particularly in Berlin, where in 1928 they comprised 80% of the leading members of the stock exchange. By 1933, when the Nazis began eliminating Jews from prominent positions, 85% of the brokers on the Berlin Stock exchange were dismissed because of their ‘race’. At least a quarter of full professors and instructors (at German universities) had Jewish origins. In 1905-6 Jewish students comprised 25% of the law and medical students. In 1931, 50% of the 234 theatre directors in Germany were Jewish, and in Berlin the number was 80%. In 1929 it was estimated that the per capita income of Jews in Berlin was twice that of other Berlin residents.”



Edgar Mowrer (Berlin correspondent for the Chicago Daily News), anti-German tract ‘Germany Puts the Clock Back’ (1937):
“In the all-important administration of Prussia, any number of strategic positions came into the hands of Hebrews. A telephone conversation between three Jews in Ministerial offices could result in the suspension of any periodical or newspaper in the state. The Jews came in Germany to play in politics and administration that same considerable part that they had previously won by open competition in business, trade, banking, the Press, the arts, the sciences and the intellectual and cultural life of the country. And thereby the impression was strengthened that Germany, a country with a mission of its own, had fallen into the hands of foreigners.”



Douglas Reed, Disgrace Abounding (1939), pp. 238-239:
“In the Berlin (of pre-Hitler years) most of the theatres were Jewish-owned or Jewish-leased, most of the leading film and stage actors were Jews, the plays performed were often by German, Austrian or Hungarian Jews and were staged by Jewish film producers, applauded by Jewish dramatic critics in Jewish newspapers. The Jews are not cleverer than the Gentiles, if by clever you mean good at their jobs. They ruthlessly exploit the common feeling of Jews, first to get a foothold in a particular trade or calling, then to squeeze the non-Jews out of it. It is not true that Jews are better journalists than Gentiles. They held all the posts on those Berlin papers because the proprietors and editors were Jewish.”



[Jewish writer] Chaim Bermant, book ‘The Jews’ (1977):
“It must be added that most of the leading revolutionaries who convulsed Europe in the final decades of the last century and the first decades of this one, stemmed from prosperous Jewish families. They were perhaps typified by the father of revolution, Karl Marx. Thus when, after the chaos of World War I, revolutions broke out all over Europe, Jews were everywhere at the helm; Trotsky, Sverdlov, Kamenev and Zinoviev in Russia, Bela Kun in Hungary, Kurt Eisner in Bavaria, and, most improbable of all, Rosa Luxemburg in Berlin.
“To many outside observers, the Russian revolution looked like a Jewish conspiracy, especially when it was followed by Jewish-led revolutionary outbreaks in much of central Europe. The leadership of the Bolshevik Party had a preponderance of Jews. Of the seven members of the Politburo, the inner cabinet of the country, four, Trotsky (Bronstein), Zinoviev (Radomsky), Kamenev (Rosenfeld) and Sverdlov, were Jews.”



Sarah Gordon, Hitler, Germans and the Jewish Question (1984), p. 23:
“There has been a tendency to circumvent or simply ignore the significant role of Jewish intellectuals in the German Communist Party, and thereby seriously neglect one of the genuine and objective reasons for increased anti-Semitism during and after World War 1. The prominence of Jews in the revolution and early Weimar Republic is indisputable, and this was a very serious contributing cause for increased anti-Semitism in post-war years. It is clear then that the stereotype of Jews as socialists and communists. led many Germans to distrust the Jewish minority as a whole and to brand Jews as enemies of the German nation.”



Martin Bernal, Black Athéna, vol. 1, pp. 367, 387:
“The second paroxysm of strong anti-Semitism came after the critical role of Jews in International Communism and the Russian Revolution and during the economic crises of the 1920s and 30s. Anti-Semitism intensified throughout Europe and North America following the perceived and actual centrality of Jews in the Russian Revolution. Such feelings were not restricted to Germany, or to vulgar extremists like the Nazis. All over Northern Europe and North America, anti-Semitism became the norm in ‘nice society’, and ‘nice society’ included the universities.”



Winston Churchill, telegram to General Gough stationed with the British Army in Helsinki, Finland, June 6, 1919:
“In view of prominent part taken by Jews in Red terror and regime there is special danger of Jewish pogroms and this danger must be combatted strongly.”



Winston Churchill, to British PM David Lloyd George, October 10, 1919:
“There is a very bitter feeling throughout Russia against the Jews, who are regarded as being the main instigators of the ruin of the [Russian] Empire, and who, certainly have played a leading part in Bolshevik atrocities.”



Winston Churchill, Zionism versus Bolshevism, a struggle for the soul of the Jewish people, Illustrated Sunday Herald, February 8, 1920:
“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. […] There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution, by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews, it is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others. With the notable exception of Lenin, the majority of the leading figures are Jews. Moreover, the principal inspiration and driving power comes from the Jewish leaders. […] The same evil prominence was obtained by Jews in the brief period of terror during which Bela Kun ruled in Hungary. The same phenomenon has been presented in Germany (especially in Bavaria), so far as this madness has been allowed to prey upon the temporary prostration of the German people.”

Re: "Why did Hitler hate the Jews"

Postby flimflam » 5 months 3 weeks ago (Sat Apr 20, 2019 9:25 am)

I just wrote up an answer to this question as part of another project .... here tis .....

Did Hitler hate the Jews, and, why?
Hitler hated the Jews and wanted them out of Europe. He cooperated with the Zionists for years before the war to move German Jews to Palestine, see The Haavara Agreement - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haavara_Agreement

In Mein Kampf Hitler writes at length about why he hates Jews. Before coming to Vienna his view of the Jews is benign:
As I thought that they were persecuted on account of their Faith my aversion to hearing remarks against them grew almost into a feeling of abhorrence.


However as he engages in political discussions with the Jews his opinion changes:

The more I argued with them, the better I came to know their dialectic. First they counted on the stupidity of their adversary, and then, when there was no other way out, they themselves simply played stupid. If all this didn't help, they pretended not to understand, or, if challenged, they changed the subject in a hurry, quoted platitudes which, if you accepted them, they immediately related to entirely different matters, and then, if again attacked, gave ground and pretended not to know exactly what you were talking about. Whenever you tried to attack one of these apostles, your hand closed on a jelly-like slime which divided up and poured through your fingers, but in the next moment collected again. But if you really struck one of these fellows so telling a blow that, observed by the audience, he couldn't help but agree, and if you believed that this had taken you at least one step forward, your amazement was great the next day. The Jew had not the slightest recollection of the day before, he rattled off his same old nonsense as though nothing at all had happened, and, if indignantly challenged, affected amazement; he couldn't remember a thing, except that he had proved the correctness of his assertions the previous day.
Sometimes I stood there thunderstruck.

I didn't know what to be more amazed at: the agility of their tongues or their virtuosity at lying.

Gradually I began to hate them.


In Vienna Hitler is employed as a common worker, and he encounters trade unions, Social Democrats, Jews, and Marxism:

At midday some of my fellow workers used to adjourn to the nearest tavern, while the others remained on the building premises and there ate their midday meal, which in most cases was a very scanty one. These were married men. Their wives brought them the midday soup in dilapidated vessels. Towards the end of the week there was a gradual increase in the number of those who remained to eat their midday meal on the building premises. I understood the reason for this afterwards. They now talked politics.
I drank my bottle of milk and ate my morsel of bread somewhere on the outskirts, while I circumspectly studied my environment or else fell to meditating on my own harsh lot. Yet I heard more than enough. And I often thought that some of what they said was meant for my ears, in the hope of bringing me to a decision. But all that I heard had the effect of arousing the strongest antagonism in me. Everything was disparaged - the nation, because it was held to be an invention of the ‘capitalist’ class (how often I had to listen to that phrase!); the Fatherland, because it was held to be an instrument in the hands of the bourgeoisie for the exploitation of’ the working masses; the authority of the law, because that was a means of holding down the proletariat; religion, as a means of doping the people, so as to exploit them afterwards; morality, as a badge of stupid and sheepish docility. There was nothing that they did not drag in the mud.

Hitherto my acquaintance with the Social Democratic Party was only that of a mere spectator at some of their mass meetings. I had not the slightest idea of the social-democratic teaching or the mentality of its partisans. All of a sudden I was brought face to face with the products of their teaching and what they called their Weltanschhauung. In this way a few months sufficed for me to learn something which under other circumstances might have necessitated decades of study - namely, that under the cloak of social virtue and love of one’s neighbour a veritable pestilence was spreading abroad and that if this pestilence be not stamped out of the world without delay it may eventually succeed in exterminating the human race.


Hitler identified the Jews with Marxism and the Marxist Social Democracy party. The above passages refer to a period before WW I, but were written after WW I and the Bolshevik revolution in Russia. Regarding the Bolshevik revolution in Russia

Now begins the great last revolution. In gaining political power the Jew casts off the few cloaks that he still wears. The democratic people's Jew becomes the blood-Jew and tyrant over peoples. In a few years he tries to exterminate the national intelligentsia and by robbing the peoples of their natural intellectual leadership makes them ripe for the slave's lot of permanent subjugation.

The most frightful example of this kind is offered by Russia, where he killed or starved about thirty million people with positively fanatical savagery, in part amid inhuman tortures, in order to give a gang of Jewish journalists and stock exchange bandits domination


Hitler also identified Jews with the international financiers. and wrote:

As I listened to Gottfried Feder's first lecture about the 'breaking of interest slavery,' I knew at once that this was a theoretical truth which would inevitably be of immense importance for the future of the German people. The sharp separation of stock exchange capital from the national economy offered the possibility of opposing the internationalization of the German economy without at the same time menacing the foundations of an independent national self-maintenance by a struggle against all capital. The development of Germany was much too clear in my eyes for me not to know that the hardest battle would have to be fought, not against hostile nations, but against international capital. In Feder's lecture I sensed a powerful slogan for this coming struggle.

And here again later developments proved how correct our sentiment of those days was. Today the know-it-alls among our bourgeois politicians no longer laugh at us: today even they, in so far as they are not conscious liars, see that international stock exchange capital was not only the greatest agitator for the War, but that especially, now that the fight is over, it spares no effort to turn the peace into a hell.
The fight against international finance and loan capital became the most important point in the program of the German nation's struggle for its economic independence and freedom.


Probably the most well known quote from MK is on the big lie:

But it remained for the Jews, with their unqualified capacity for falsehood, and their fighting comrades, the Marxists, to impute responsibility for the downfall precisely to the man who alone had shown a superhuman will and energy in his effort to prevent the catastrophe which he had foreseen and to save the nation from that hour of complete overthrow and shame. By placing responsibility for the loss of the world war on the shoulders of Ludendorff they took away the weapon of moral right from the only adversary dangerous enough to be likely to succeed in bringing the betrayers of the Fatherland to Justice.

All this was inspired by the principle—which is quite true within itself—that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.
It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.

It's not so much that he himself personally hated Jews as individuals (see below), but he helped channel the overall German contempt for Jewry constructively as an effective mediator. In his 1919 letter, he outlines the distinction between emotional and rational anti-Semitism. Everywhere he stresses the condition of the German people on the streets as opposed to the criminals in prison and the Jews occupying German jobs. He was clearly interested in maintaining a balance between idealists and criminals. He was fanatical and revolutionary when he needed to be, but he was actually very moderate.

Hitler didn't mind that his doctor Eduard Bloch was Jewish or that his neighbors were Jewish (the Feuchtwangers, whose eldest son was an agitator). He kept Rosa Bernile Nienau close to him even after discovering her Jewishness. According to mainstream sources, he wished to acknowledge Morgenstern and Weininger. He also admitted that there were Jews who had abstained from doing injury to the German cause (although he fully recognized their destructive capability and that self-interest was the reason for their reticence). Curiously, Emil Maurice's Jewishness eluded him, although he was matchless in recognizing Jews by their appearance. He also allowed the defeatist Erhard Milch to remain in the Luftwaffe, although there's a chance Milch would have made a better leader than Goering.

He started off unbelievably generous in his appeals to the German Jewish community to desist from their agitation (indeed, he primarily attacked communists, which mostly consisted of Jews. He observed how his attempts to dissuade Jews from going over to communism had the undesired result), just as his attitude towards the churches was remarkably tolerant. He understood that most of the Jews would have to leave on their own accord and the only way to accomplish this was to make Germany inhospitable for them and make parasitism all but impossible to exist.

Jews often try to claim that blaming them for Capitalism and Communism is some sort of absurd contradiction. However, Jewish historian Norman Cantor admits that Jews overwhelmingly dominated both the communist ("red") and capitalist ("white") positions of power in pre-war Europe.

Half of the six members of the politburo that was the supreme government of Soviet Russia in 1920 were Jews. The first head of the Soviet secret police was Jewish. Jews were prominent in the leadership of the community party in Germany, Hungary, and Austria. In the 1920s close to half the members of the small the political insignificant American Communist party were Jewish. There was, therefore, an affinity between the Jews and not only market capitalism but also late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century communism. Empirical data support the contention of French and German anti-Semites in the 1920s and 1930s that Jews were both capitalists and communists, and thus double anathema to the reactionary racist and religious movements that funneled into Judeo-phobic fascism. The German cartoonists of the 1920s who depicted Jews as both bloated capitalists swallowing European civilization and nefarious red terrorists plotting to blow up Western civilization were not engaging in absolute fantasy, even though Jewish apologists then and historians now like to make that accusation and try to forget the whole thing.
Source: Norman Cantor (1994) “The Sacred Chain – A History of the Jews”


Cantor claims that Jews are a superior species, and because Western capitalism was unable to accommodate this, it had to be changed:
This upheaval and westward migration of the Jews (still leaving five million in Eastern Europe, however) was accompanied by two major changes in their occupations and well-being. The Jews in the Americas and Western Europe entered more freely into the nexus of market capitalism not only as petty bourgeoisie but as industrial workers and corporate owners. Although millions of Jews had carried their Eastern European impoverishment with them to the West, their literacy, native intelligence, religion-conditioned moral discipline, and superior genetic qualities made them excellent prospects for upward mobility in Western society...

The second factor conducive to Jewish over involvement on the Left and to the appearance of a hard core of reds among Jews was the inability of modernity and its institutional forms to absorb sufficiently brilliant and active younger Jews seeking a suitable role for themselves in secular society. The Jews innately spawned so many intelligent and ambitious young men and women that not even the vibrant plasticity of the modern market economy and society could satisfy many of them. Once the Jews were emancipated, too many younger Jews of superior capability could not find places in society and economy that were adequate for the exercise of their talents. The Jews, once emancipated and given opportunity for mobility, were culturally so advanced that market capitalism could not accommodate some of this superior species, and inevitably some reacted to this rebuff by becoming not whites but reds. By this thesis, societies in which Jews were not yet fully emancipated—Germany in the 1840s, Russia in the 1890s—or were legally emancipated but still limited in economic opportunity—Vienna and Budapest around 1910, the United States in the immigrant era from 1890 to 1940-—would be especially productive of Jewish reds. This is indeed what happened.

Breker wrote:Actually, the question should be 'Why do people worldwide hate the Jews?'

Perhaps the question is instead;
Why have people all throughout history, from every corner of the globe, speaking their various languages and often hardly aware of one another's existence... responded to the Jewish people with hatred and contempt?

Adolf Hitler, 21 May 1935:
The Germany of today is a National Socialist State. The ideology that dominates us is in diametrical contradiction to that of Soviet Russia. National Socialism is a doctrine that has reference exclusively to the German people.... National Socialists and Bolshevists both are convinced they are a world apart from each other and their differences can never be bridged. Apart from that, there were thousands of our people slain and maimed in the fight against Bolshevism. If Russia likes Bolshevism it is not our affair, but if Bolshevism casts its nets over to Germany, then we will fight it tooth and nail.


Adolf Hitler again, 29 November 1935:
Germany is the bulwark of the West against Bolshevism, and, in combating it, will meet terror with terror and violence with violence.
