Preface

 

On 1 January 2016, Mein Kampf came out of copyright. It has now been 70 years since the author’s death, and by international copyright law, legal protection for the book has expired. Thus it is perhaps a good time to reconsider and reexamine this most notorious work—and perhaps to banish some of the many myths surrounding it to history.

 

In fact, we are long overdue for a revisionist treatment of this work. In my experience, very few people really understand what’s in it. The common man, even the well-educated one, likely knows little more than the title and the author. Revisionists who work on the Holocaust or either of the world wars often bypass the book completely, as if it had no relevance at all; most likely, they have never read it. Traditional journalists, academics, and alleged experts frequently display their ignorance by taking passages out of context, overlooking key facts, or simply failing to cite the author appropriately. More generally, the mainstream approach to Mein Kampf seems be rather similar to its tactics with regard to Holocaust revisionism: ignore, censor, or disparage. It is simply too problematic to discuss this work in a fashion that might lead readers to ask tough questions, or to seek out the book itself.

 

A large part of the reason for the book’s obscurity is the sorry state of its many English translations. These will be discussed and critiqued below. This is also one of the reasons that I am currently working on a new, parallel German-English translation—the first ever, in fact. I will attempt to remedy many of the shortcomings in current versions, and provide something of a revisionist perspective on the entire work. In the present essay, I examine the translations, discuss some main themes of the book, and argue for its relevance in the present day.

 

 

A Most Consequential Work

 

 

Mein Kampf is the autobiography and articulated worldview of one of the most consequential and visionary leaders in world history.  It is also one of the most maligned and misrepresented texts of the 20th century. There have been so many obfuscations, deceptions, and outright falsehoods circulated about this work that one scarcely knows where to begin. Nonetheless, the time has come to set the story straight.

 

That Adolf Hitler would even have undertaken such a work is most fortunate. Being neither a formal academic nor a natural writer, and being fully preoccupied with pragmatic matters of party-building, he might never have begun such a major task—were it not for the luxury of a year-long jail term. In one of the many ironies of Hitler’s life, it took just such an adverse event to prompt him to dictate his party’s early history and his own life story. This would become Volume One of his two-part, 700-page magnum opus. It would have a dramatic effect on world history, and initiate a chain of events that has yet to fully play out. In this sense, Mein Kampf is as relevant today as when it was first written.

Perhaps the place to begin is with the rationale for the book. Why did Hitler write it at all? Clearly it was not a requirement; many major politicians in history have come and gone without leaving a personal written record. Even his time in prison could have been spent communicating with party leaders, building support, soliciting allies, and so on. But he chose to spend much of his stay documenting the origins and growth of his new movement. And this was a boon to history as well as to understanding of the human spirit.

[Very informative interview by Jim Rizoli with Benton Bradberry and the story behind his excellent book that exposes the lies behind our “official” understanding of the events of the 20th century whereby Germany is most wrongly portrayed as the “evil villain“. The truth is the very opposite — KATANA.]

The Myth of Germany Villainy

 

Author Ben Bradberry Interviewed

Jim Rizoli

 

 

 

January 6, 2016.

 

Ben Bradberry, who wrote The Myth Of German Villainy, is interviewed by League of Extraordinary Revisionists Co-FounderJim Rizoli.

 

_______________________

 

Neither Kaiser Wilhelm nor Adolf Hitler wanted war. Both WWI and WWII were thrust upon Germany by the Allied powers. Germany’s great sin was emerging too late as a consolidated nation-state and upsetting the long established balance of power scheme in Europe. The already established great powers, Britain, France and Russia, joined together in 1914 to destroy this new rival. When Germany rose phoenix-like from the ashes of WWI to again become a great power, they finished. the job with World War II. The deliberate destruction of Germany during the Second World-War can only be compared.to the Roman destruction of ancient Carthage, and it was done for the same reason — to destroy a commercial rival. The “official” history of World Wars I & II, the story we learned in school, is a myth.

 

As the title “The Myth of German Villainy” indicates, this book is about the mischaracterization of Germany as history’s ultimate “villain“. The “official” story of Western Civilization in the twentieth century casts Germany as the disturber of the peace in Europe, and the cause of both World War I and World War II, though the facts don’t bear that out.

 

During both wars, fantastic atrocity stories were invented by Allied propaganda to create hatred of the German people for the purpose of bringing public opinion around to support the wars. The “Holocaust” propaganda which emerged after World War II further solidified this image of Germany as history’s ultimate villain. But how true is this “official” story? Was Germany really history’s ultimate villain? In this book, the author paints a different picture. He explains that Germany was not the perpetrator of World War I nor World War II, but instead, was the victim of Allied aggression in both wars. The instability wrought by World War I made the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution in Russia possible, which brought world Communism into existence. Hitler and Germany recognized world Communism, with its base in the Soviet Union, as an existential threat to Western, Christian Civilization, and he dedicated himself and Germany to a death struggle against it. Far from being the disturber of European peace, Germany served as a bulwark which prevented Communist revolution from sweeping over Europe. The pity was that the United States and Britain did not see Communist Russia in the same light, ultimately with disastrous consequences for Western Civilization. The author believes that Britain and the United States joined the wrong side in the war.

 

 

About the Author

 

Benton L. Bradberry served as an officer and aviator in the U.S. Navy from 1955 to 1977, from near the beginning of the Cold War to near its end. His generation was inundated with anti-German propaganda and “Holocaust” lore. Then, in his role as a naval officer and pilot, he was immersed in anti-Communist propaganda and the war psychosis of the Cold War era. He has had a life-long fascination with the history of this period and has read deeply into all aspects of it. He also saw much of Europe during his Navy years and has travelled widely in Europe since. A natural skeptic, he long ago began to doubt that the “propaganda” told the whole story. He has spent years researching “the other side of the story” and has now written a book about it. The author is a graduate of the Naval Post Graduate School in Monterey, California with a degree in Political Science and International Relations.

Mein Kampf

 

 

Chapter 11

 

 

Race and People

 

 

[This chapter 11 of Mein Kampf was recommended in a previous post The Realist Report – Tanstaafl: The Jew As A Parasite — TRANSCRIPT as one of the most important chapters to read — KATANA.]

 

There are certain truths which stand out so openly on the roadsides of life, as it were, that every passer-by may see them. Yet, because of their very obviousness, the general run of people disregard such truths or at least they do not make them the object of any conscious knowledge. People are so blind to some of the simplest facts in everyday life that they are highly surprised when somebody calls attention to what everybody ought to know. Examples of The Columbus Egg lie around us in hundreds of thousands; but observers like Columbus are rare.

Walking about in the garden of Nature, most men have the self-conceit to think that they know everything; yet almost all are blind to one of the outstanding principles that Nature employs in her work. This principle may be called the inner isolation which characterizes each and every living species on this earth. Even a superficial glance is sufficient to show that all the innumerable forms in which the life-urge of Nature manifests itself are subject to a fundamental law one may call it an iron law of Nature which compels the various species to keep within the definite limits of their own life-forms when propagating and multiplying their kind. Each animal mates only with one of its own species. The tit-mouse cohabits only with the tit-mouse, the finch with the finch, the stork with the stork, the field-mouse with the field-mouse, the house-mouse with the house-mouse, the wolf with the she-wolf, etc.

Deviations from this law take place only in exceptional circumstances. This happens especially under the compulsion of captivity, or when some other obstacle makes procreative intercourse impossible between individuals of the same species. But then Nature abhors such intercourse with all her might; and her protest is most clearly demonstrated by the fact that the hybrid is either sterile or the fecundity of its descendants is limited. In most cases hybrids and their progeny are denied the ordinary powers of resistance to disease or the natural means of defence against outer attack.

What World-Famous Men Said

 

About the Jews

 

 

By Dr. E. R. Fields

What World-Famous Men Said About the Jews - Dr R E Fields

1964

 

Introduction

 

 

The Jews are the only people in the world who have found hostility in every country in which they settled in any numbers. The big question is — WHY?

 

What World-Famous Men Said About the Jews - 1295 - Nazi Parade

 

Today it is taught in the schools that “Anti-Semitism” began in Germany in the 1930s after which they were deported. What is not studied is the fact that at one time or other the Jews have been expelled from every nation in Europe! When the Jews first began to immigrate to America the early colonialists in New York, Charleston and Savannah tried to ban their entry. Benjamin Franklin pleaded with the members of the Continental Congress to enter a specific ban against Jewish immigration into the U. S. Constitution to bar them for all time to come.

 

What World-Famous Men Said About the Jews - 1296 - Rabbis at Wailing Wall

 

The Jews claim that they are “only” a religion. The truth is that the Jews are a RACE. Less than 30% are members of any Synagogue. Whether they are Orthodox religious, atheists, capitalists or communists — they still claim to be Jews — members of the Jewish race! Every race has inherited traits. In the case of the Jews they include trading, money-changing, usury, and a loathing for “productive labor” which is scorned as beneath the dignity of the Jews in their “bible” called “The Talmud.”

 

What World-Famous Men Said About the Jews - 1298 - Jerusalem

 

The Jews have not changed since the days when Jesus Christ took up a whip and drove “the money changers out of the Temple.” Jews have always united to form monopolies. Today they control all the department store chains and speciality shops along with the lucrative jewelry and animal fur trade. Jews dominate the fields of all precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum, tin, lead, etc. They will always ban together to drive Gentile competitors out of business.

 

What World-Famous Men Said About the Jews - 1299 - Rabbis at Wailing Wall 2

 

Today America is being flooded with Jewish immigrants from Russia and even 20,000 per year leave Israel for the U. S. — all with dollar signs in their eyes. Jews have used their vaunted money-power to seize control of the Democratic Party and constitute over 50% of all its financial contributions. Today they are buying up more and more major U. S. companies. While only 3% of the population, the Jews control over 25% of the nation’s wealth and this percentage rises every year. They are the only racial group totally organized to work for political domination over America.

 

What World-Famous Men Said About the Jews - 1300 - Jews NY dancing in street

 

Opposition to the Jews did not begin in Germany but dates back before the birth of Christ over 2,000 years ago! Study the statements made by “The world’s greatest men.” They reveal why the “wandering Jews” have made enemies out of every host country that ever accepted them.

 

 

Quotations

 

CICERO (Marcus Tullius Cicero). First century B.C. Roman statesman, writer.

 

What World-Famous Men Said About the Jews - 1301 - Cicero

 

“Softly! Softly! I want none but the judges to hear me. The Jews have already gotten me into a fine mess, as they have many other gentleman. I have no desire to furnish further grist for their mills.” (Oration in Defense of Flaccus)

 

Cicero was serving as defense counsel at the trial of Flaccus, a Roman official who interfered with Jewish gold shipments to their international headquarters (then, as now) in Jerusalem. Cicero himself certainly was not a nobody, and for one of this stature to have to “speak softly” shows that he was in the presence of a dangerously powerful sphere of influence.

 

What World-Famous Men Said About the Jews - 1302 - Cicero Bust

 

And on another occasion Cicero wrote:

“The Jews belong to a dark and repulsive force. One knows how numerous this clique is, how they stick together and what power they exercise through their unions. They are a nation of rascals and deceivers.”

THE WANDERING SCHOLARS

 

WHEN the youth movement first started in Germany the wandering scholar, with staff and rucksack, was its principal exponent. And he was a good exponent, because he was perfectly right in believing that Shank’s pony is the best method of transportation if one sets out on a journey for the purpose of gaining a knowledge of one’s own country. This spirit logically gave rise to a desire to know the neighbouring countries and is of special importance in the case of Germany; for Germany is surrounded by a ring of powerful nations whose political significance is of the highest importance, and whose histories are part of the cultural development of Europe. The result of this situation was that the German youth movement soon began to cross the national frontiers and explore other countries. The wish to understand one’s neighbours became a ruling factor.

A branch of the youth movement which has lately come into prominence is the international system whereby the youth of various nations exchange visits in organized parties. In the summer of 1935 more than 100 groups of the Hitler Youth, each group consisting of from 10 to 20 members, crossed the German frontiers on exploration tours abroad. With tent and knapsack, they toured France and England, the Balkan States and Poland; into the Baltic countries, northwards as far as Iceland and northwestwards as far as the United States of America. As there were some students who could not meet the costs of such journeys, an arrangement was made to have an exchange of students between the various colleges in different countries. For instance, a German school would invite a number of students from an English school to come and stay as its guests for four or five weeks, and the English school would then in its turn invite the German students to do likewise. Thus it has been made possible to carry out a system of international excursions where the individual student only has to pay his bare travelling expenses.

German Youth - 538 - German and American High-school students North Carolina

German and American High-school students in North Carolina, in the camp of New College, Columbia University

In 1935, 2,500 German boys and girls left Germany as the invited guests of foreign countries. Of these, speaking in round numbers, 600 went to England. 500 to Sweden, 200 to France, 200 to Finnland, 100 to Norway; and the rest, divided into small groups, to other parts of Europe, principally into the countries lying South-East of Germany. For the first time 3 groups, travelled to the United States of America.

These holiday camps have a special significance, because camp life, with its close companionship, enables the youth of both nations to get to know and understand one another. The Reich leader of the Hitler-Jugend was the first to start these international holiday camps. It was something entirely new in international relations when, in the summer of 1934. a group of English students disembarked at Hamburg and were received by a group of the Hitler-Jugend who conducted them to their hostel as guests.

THE YOUTH MOVEMENT

 

THE Youth Movement is so essentially German that it would be justifiable to typify the Germans as the people with a youth movement, or, to go still further, the people which has always had a youth movement and which will ever have one, so long as we mean thereby an active and independent spirit among the rising generation.

German Youth - 521 - NOVALIS

NOVALIS

Frederick Leopold von Hardenberg

[Page 7]

In the middle of the eighteenth century, Klopstock founded our hymnal poetry at the age of 24. In Herder’s sick-room at Strassburg a youth of 26 kindled the spirit of another of 21 (Goethe) and the latter thereafter that of his comrades and contemporaries. Schiller was scarcely 30 when, under the double influence of his education and his time, he proclaimed rebellion sacred and read aloud his “Robbers” to his fellows. His example was followed by the three scholars, Holderlln, Schelling and Hegel, who secretly acknowledged the ev xai zav and danced about the Tree of Freedom. Moreover, that most effective spiritual movement which after the classic epoch consciously wore the colours of youth, was initiated by two youths Friedrich Schlegel and Novalis.

Max Kommerell

 

German Youth - 522 - JOSEPH VON EICHENDORFF

 

JOSEPH VON EICHENDORFF

For our youth there is no ease of carefree play, no blithe immunity; the quest of life engages it early. We come to birth in the midst of struggle and in the midst of struggle, vanquished or victorious, we decline.

From the novel … Ahnung Gegenwart, 1812

[Page 8]

YOUTH

 

EVERYWHERE violent complaints can be heard and read against young people. It is said that they are sceptical, refractory and lacking in respect. It is true that they never showed less trusting confidence in their parents and teachers. But is this really, as is so often claimed, the children’s fault? Instead, is it not the inevitable result of the prevailing insecurity, a lack of faith, which in this age of the League of Nations, the Peace Pact, Disarmament, and Diplomacy, seems to cling to all high-sounding promises and assurances? If, today, young people refuse to believe their elders so blindly, is this not because the innate truthfulness of these young people rebels against the abuse of sacred promises?

The Jew uses the lie as his most effective weapon to attain his goal and to conquer the world. Truth is his worst enemy

 

WORLD SERVICES has taken upon itself the task of enlightening all non-Jewish peoples and of revealing to them Jewry’s sinister intentions and its criminal methods. Recognition of this danger is the first step towards elimination. “WORLD SERVICES” has dedicated itself to truthfully reporting news-items pertaining to Jews and Jewry and thereby safeguarding the liberties of all nations.

 

Whoever is cognisant of this Jewish danger is requested to communicate with “WORLD SERVICES”, Frankfurt/M P.O.B. 600.

 

Only through co-operation it is possible to avert the threatening danger.

 

How Jewry Turned England

 

into a Plutocratic State

 

An Historical Survey

[This was taken from an article published in Frankfurt Germany, 1940]

 

 

HUME, the classic among England’s historian in his fundamental work. “The history of England, from the invasion of Julius Caesar to the revolution in 1668”, Vol. II, Ch. X., P 130, (London 1803) writes:

The greater part of that kind of dealing (usury) fell every where into the hands of the Jews; who, being already infamous on account of their religion, had no honour to lose, and were apt to exercise a profession, odious in itself, by every kind of rigour, and even sometimes by rapine and extortion.

Jews “Convert” to Christianity and Continue Their Infiltration, Seeking Greater Dominance over England

 

 

 

 

To the casual observer it would seem that the Jews had suffered a defeat as the result of the repeal of the Naturalisation Law of 1753. In reality, the influence upon the government of the Jewish clique surrounding Sampson Gideon had become so great that the Jews in spite of all, could from this time on settle down in England in ever increasing comfort, and their influence grew stronger from year to year. The cause of their further advance was the Naturalisation Law of 1740, which, although it had been passed without the knowledge of the English people, still remained in force. The Jews could therefore still become British citizens by the roundabout way of the American colonies. Then also, the Jews, having seen with what obstinate resistance the English nation had withstood their immigration into England, changed their tactics. Leading Jews at this time withdrew from the synagogues and became converted to Christianity. A typical example of how practical and useful the Jews found these new tactics, is given us by the Jewish leader, Sampson Gideon. On May 21. 1754, he withdrew from the synagogue [55]. His influence on Sir Robert Walpole enabled him to procure, by act of Parliament, the Castle of Spalding, in the neighbourhood of Coventry. This Jewish leader caused his three children, a son and two daughters, to be baptised. Simpson Gideon, son of Sampson Gideon, was educated at Eton. In 1759 Sampson Gideon obtained a baronetcy for his fifteen year old son [56].
