Björn Höcke and the Potential Return of Sanity in German Politics

On January 17th 2017, one of the leading members of Germany’s new alternative conservative party, Alternative für Deutschland (AfD), Björn Höcke, gave a speech before his party’s youth organization (Junge Alternative) in the city of Dresden. In his 20-minute speech, Höcke addressed the future of his party, its rebellious function and patriotic orientation, the architectural disfigurement of landscapes and cities, the failures of the political establishment in the refugee crisis, German cultural identity and — yes, he did — the World War II guilt cult and the Holocaust memorial. The speech had the potential of ringing in a new era of self-liberation from the shackles of the post-war historical narrative that denies the German people their sense of self-worth.

However, Höcke clearly poked a hornet’s nest, given the hysterical reactions across the political establishment, including the media and representatives of the Jewish lobby in Germany. Although the speech was well-received by young patriots, some remarks did not go over well with the ruling class. Höcke had been bold enough to suggest that

  1. Instead of focusing primarily on those twelve dark years of the country’s history, German youth should be allowed to develop a positive identity by remembering and honoring the achievements of Germany’s numerous composers, poets and philosophers, of which the country had produced perhaps more than any other.
  2. Germany was the only country in the world that had decided to plant a ‘monument of shame’ in the heart of its capital, and had made the most horrible event in its history the foundation of its national identity.
  3. The Allied fire-bombing of Dresden was a war crime comparable to the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The guilt cult, however, allowed for a portrayal of Germans as perpetrators only, preventing them from mourning their own victims.

The press reacted “with disgust and horror” — as if Höcke had denied the Holocaust (which he didn’t). Although Höcke had remained rather factual in his description of the status quo without attacking anyone in particular, vocabulary from the familiar arsenal of curses was hurled at him: “Nazi”, “right-wing extremist”, “Goebbels”, “hard right”, “populist”, “nationalist”, “national Romantic”, and so on and so forth. In an article by Amanda Taub and Max Fischer in the New York Times, his brownish-grey hair suddenly turned blonde, more or less subtly conjuring up images of the blonde Germanic beast, familiar from countless anti-German Hollywood productions and books.

Using the Moral Capital of the Holocaust to Promote Muslim Migration

It has always been obvious that Donald Trump’s candidacy would result in a barrage of hostile media, and there have already been numerous comparisons of Trump to Hitler. But now, coinciding with Holocaust Remembrance Day, we get Holocaust survivors chiming in. The Washington Post‘s Dana Milbank is a Jewish patriot with access to the elite media, of whom Philip Weiss wrote:

The answer [for why the Israel Lobby is so powerful] is not a conspiracy of donors. Though, yes, donors matter. The answer is the importance of Zionism inside the US establishment. It is the sincere belief among empowered Jews like Dana Milbank, Alan Dershowitz, and Matt Dorf that the establishment of Israel was the redemptive end point of a tragic European Jewish history, and that American Jews are equal partners in the fulfillment of that redemption. This is a sincere, core belief on the part of countless Jewish politicians, journalists, donors and thinktank officials, many of them liberals.

And, from Milbank’s perspective, in order to redeem that tragic Jewish history, it is important to derail Trump’s candidacy by invoking the “moral authority” of holocaust survivors. Milbank:

This year’s Holocaust remembrance comes at a time when Donald Trump, the front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination, retweets to his nearly 6 million followers a message from @WhiteGenocideTM based in “Jewmerica,” and a time when his nearest challenger, Ted Cruz, brandishes the endorsement of a minister who says Hitler was a “hunter” sent after the Jews by God. There has never been a more important time for Americans to heed the moral authority of the Holocaust survivors still among us. …

This refers to this retweet by Trump:

I guess Milbank’s idea is that by retweeting someone, you are also endorsing all of his ideas, and therefore Trump is evil. But let’s face it, it’s a funny tweet, and I rather doubt that Trump vetted @WhiteGenocide. Still, it’s encouraging that Trump did not just chuckle and move on when he saw that Twitter tag.

Remembering Greville Janner on Holocaust Memorial Day

The slogan for today’s Holocaust Memorial Day is “Don’t Stand By” — a reference to the widespread Jewish belief that many people in Britain and elsewhere turned a blind eye to Jewish suffering during World War II.

Just in case anyone misses the insinuation, the HMD website spells it out.

The Holocaust and subsequent genocides took place because the local populations allowed insidious persecution to take root. Whilst some actively supported or facilitated state policies of persecution, the vast majority stood by silently — at best, afraid to speak out; at worst, indifferent. Bystanders enabled the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and subsequent genocides.

This attempt to spread responsibility for the events of 1939–1945 from the perpetrators to Britain and every other White country in Europe has long been an aim of Jewish ethnic activists, and now it seems they have been successful.

A good example is the Holocaust Explained website, intended as an education site for schools and funded by Jewish organisations as well as municipal authorities. It explains that the British have much to be ashamed of in their treatment of Jews before and during the war. So British schoolchildren who up until now have been told their people had a “good war” will now learn another story: Britain is culpable. Read more

A Review of “Why the Germans? Why the Jews?” — Part 1

A Review of “Why the Germans? Why the Jews?”
by Götz Aly


The culture of the Holocaust is destroying Germany. Endlessly reinforced over decades by the intellectual and media elite, the notion that Germans and their descendants are responsible for “the single most evil event in human history” has had such a demoralizing effect that millions fully support Angela Merkel’s current attempt to destroy the ethnic basis of their nation. The culture of the Holocaust has been used to devastating effect right throughout the West to stifle opposition to the Jewish diaspora strategies of mass non-White immigration and multiculturalism. “The Holocaust” is the absolute lynchpin of the White displacement agenda, with any hint of European racial or ethnic identification or solidarity being instantly linked with Auschwitz and its alleged horrors in the minds of millions (probably billions) of people.

The entire social and political order of the contemporary West — based as it is on spurious notions of racial equality and the alleged virtues of racial diversity and multiculturalism — has been erected on the moral foundations of the Holocaust. White people cannot be recognized as a group with interests because “never again.” Western nations have a moral obligation to accept unlimited non-White immigration from the Third World because “never again.” Europe must open its borders to hostile Islamic invaders because “never again.” Whites should meekly accept their deliberate displacement (and ultimate extinction) because “never again.”

Jewish historian Peter Novick has described how today’s culture of “the Holocaust” emerged as part of the collective Jewish response to the Eichmann trial in 1961–62, the Six-Day War in the Middle East in 1967, and, in particular, the Yom Kippur War in 1973. While the foundation was laid at Nuremberg in 1946, it was with these later events, and the anxieties they engendered among Jews throughout the world, that “there emerged in American culture a distinct thing called ‘the Holocaust’ — an event in its own right,” and with it a term that entered the English language as a description of all manner of horrors. From that time on, he notes, “the Holocaust” has become “ever more central in American public discourse — particularly, of course, among Jews, but also in the culture at large” and has since “attained transcendent status as the bearer of eternal truths or lessons that could be derived from contemplating it.”[i] Read more

The Big Day draws near

It’s that time of the year again. The big day is nearly upon us and every year it seems to come round earlier and drag on longer. It has all become so overblown. The original spirit seems to have been forgotten and it has become such a commercialised affair. Frankly I’m sick of it already — it’s all about the money these days.

Yes, Holocaust Memorial Day is nearly upon us again — 27 January in Britain — and the Prime Minister has kicked off proceedings seven weeks early with a visit to Auschwitz concentration camp.

It was a private visit — just him, his press corps, a huge security detail, TV crews, and about a dozen reporters and photographers. Of course Cameron would not be Cameron if there was not another agenda running, and it is more than likely that next year’s election was concentrating his mind.

It will be close-run, and the support of the organised Jewish political and financial community is necessary if he is to keep his job. The detail of how the Conservative Party (and Labour as well) is supported by Israeli money has been brilliantly dissected in a must-read article by Alastair Sloan in Middle East Monitor.

Despite Holocaust studies being part of the school curriculum and remembrance events occuring in, apparently, every town hall and municipal body, Cameron is still worried that his paymasters will think we are still not doing enough, so he has set up a commission to discuss the erection of a “permanent and fitting” memorial. This would be in addition to the other holocaust memorials and organisations across Britain. Read more

Comment on Francis Carr Begbie’s “The Nicholas Winton Kindertransport Myth Comes Off the Rails”

It’s well known that the Holocaust Industry has functioned to legitimize Israel. As historian Peter Novick noted,

Jewish organizations … [portrayed] Israel’s difficulties as stemming from the world’s having forgotten the Holocaust. The Holocaust framework allowed one to put aside as irrelevant any legitimate ground for criticizing Israel, to avoid even considering the possibility that the rights and wrongs were complex. (Peter Novick, The Holocaust in American Life, 1999, 155)

Less widely known perhaps is that another prime function has been to promote immigration and multiculturalism in Western societies. There has been

a large scale educational effort (including mandated courses in the public schools of several states) spearheaded by Jewish organizations and staffed by thousands of Holocaust professionals aimed at conveying the lesson that ‘tolerance and diversity [are] good; hate [is] bad, the overall rubric [being] ‘man’s inhumanity to man’ — (pp. 258-259). The Holocaust has thus become an instrument of Jewish ethnic interests not only as a symbol intended to create moral revulsion at violence directed at minority ethnic groups — prototypically the Jews, but also as an instrument to silence opponents of high levels of multi-ethnic immigration into Western societies. (Kevin MacDonald, Preface to the paperback edition of The Culture of Critique (here, p. xlii; inner quote from Novick).

It is thus no accident that Sir Nicholas Winton is brought in whenever there is a need to rationalize immigration and the contributions of migrants.

Further, the non-Jews who, unlike Winton, actually risked their lives were engaged in altruism because they were helping people, including Jews, who were quite unlike themselves — quite possibly an example of pathological altruism. The participation of Quakers is particularly interesting given their history as quintessential northwestern European moral universalists (e.g., Quakers had a major role in ending the slave trade in England, for moral reasons motivated by empathy for African slaves; here).

The Nicholas Winton Kindertransport Myth Comes Off the Rails

Visitors to Prague railway station are often intrigued by the group of bronze sculptures that stand on Platform One. It is a forlorn scene — a bespectacled man holding a crying child, a sad-looking little girl and a battered suitcase.

These striking figures form the Sir Nicholas Winton Memorial Sculpture and tell the story of the Czech Kindertransport and in particular the “British Schindler” who spirited 669 Jewish children from Czechoslovakia to London in 1939 from under the noses of the German invaders.

More than any other living Jewish person, Sir Nicholas Winton, who has just turned105, represents Britain’s most famous living link to the Holocaust. Since his story was rediscovered by the BBC, he has been lavished with honours, knighted by the Queen and is now a nominee for a Nobel Peace Prize. The torrent of books, films and documentaries about him seem to be never ending.

This week he was honoured again at a magnificent ceremony in Prague Castle where the wheelchair-bound retired banker received the highest award that the Czech Republic could bestow — the Order of the White Lion, presented by the Czech President himself.

It was a splendidly Ruritanian affair. Sir Nicholas was flanked by an honour guard, serenaded by a choir and orchestra, and met by a handful of the tearful survivors of those journeys holding pictures of themselves as children in 1939.

But there is something very wrong with all this. The problem is right there in the bronze tableau at the railway station — for nothing remotely like this ever happened. Sir Nicholas was never at the railway station to see the children off, so he cannot have held any of them in his arms. Nor was he in any real danger himself. He only spent three weeks in Prague over the Christmas break in 1938 and left before the Germans arrived. Read more
