ADOLF HITLER – THE GERMAN REVELATION.
Adolf Hitler is the Heaven-sent Answer to the age-long yearnings of the Germanic or Aryan soul. Prophet, Redeemer and Leader, He has fulfilled the Divine Will of the Almighty Creator in destroying the world foundations of the system of Mammon or International Jewish Finance.
For all Eternity have been laid the foundations of the Kingdom of God on Earth, in World National Socialism. In the Hitlerian world-idea is seen the new heaven and the new earth, as foretold in the Revelations of the Christian Bible, in which the Spirit of God is poured out on mankind, in the regeneration or resurrection of the world.
Adolf Hitler was born on April 20, 1889, in Braunau on the River Inn. Braunau is in Upper Austria, which is traditionally German territory. On January 7, 1885, Alois Hitler had married for the third time. His bride, who was to be the mother of Adolf Hitler, was Klara Pölzl, 23 years younger than her husband. Adolf, the third child of the marriage, was born when the mother was 27 years old.
The boy Adolf made good progress at school, and became also a leader amongst his fellows. A school picture shows him standing in a group which comprises the teacher and 40 pupils. His arms are folded, his head is held high, and his attitude already betokens the man born to lead and command. The boy was different from the others also in that he would often go apart from his friends for quiet meditation and as if in communion with spiritual powers. He would climb a hill that overlooked the village; and it was said that he would speak there, as to a public meeting.
Hitler's father was a customs official and he wanted his son to enter this service. However, Adolf's leanings were towards creative work, in art and painting. A clash of wills developed between the two. Hitler always showed respect towards his father; but he had perhaps a greater love for his mother. Adolf's school career ended when he passed through the fourth class in Steyr, in Upper Austria. He had no enthusiasm for many of the subjects at school, as his heart was set upon starting his artistic career. He did excel, however, at geography and at world history; and he absorbed from his German nationalist teacher at Linz secondary school a sound philosophical education.
After the death of his father, his mother moved to Linz, and into the suburb of Urfahr. His musical education began when at this stage he first listened to and was enraptured by the operas of Richard Wagner.
When Adolf was in his early 'teens his mother died. There was little money left to the family, in fact just sufficient to pay funeral expenses and his mother's few debts; so he took the momentous decision to travel to Vienna. The growing youth arrived in the capital with few material possessions, but with an indomitable will.
Life in Vienna provided an early disappointment in that the young Hitler was not accepted for the Art Academy. His talents apparently were more in the sphere of architecture, to which study he then applied himself with characteristic vigour and concentration. Providence, however, had ordained great tests for him, and he was to experience at first-hand the sufferings which he was later to lift from the back of a world, exploited for centuries at the hands of the Jewish capitalist system. For five years he suffered the misery which has been common to millions of the downtrodden in all lands. He worked as a labourer, in various jobs, and also as assistant to a decorator. The period which he spent in Vienna could be divided into two main sections. The first was the one in which he mostly worked as a labourer; the second was when he was doing drawings and water colours for sale.
The young Hitler, as he tells us in "Mein Kampf," was greatly distressed by the social degradation of the Viennese working class in their family lives. Through all these experiences he understood the underlying evil of the system, responsible for widespread suffering. exploitation and misery. His reactions were all the more vivid by contrast between his country upbringing, with its wholesome peasant traditions, and the seething proletarianism of the urbanised, Jew-exploited masses.
His experiences as a labourer brought Hitler vital knowledge of his fellow men in their trade union and political associations. knowledge also of their mental make-up. He studied the books and pamphlets of their political movements, and spent hours in discussion and argument with them. Within his mind and soul were already stirring the calls of destiny which were to make him a God-ordained Saviour for mankind from the evils of Judaism, and all its accompanying scourges.
At school the young Hitler had absorbed nationalism. Then in his early years in Vienna he came to understand from his contacts and studies the ideas of the social democratic workers and of Marxism Later be was introduced to the Jewish question. At first he had considered it to be a religious difference exclusively; but soon came to understand the blood and race distinctions which are at the root of the Aryan-Jewish conflict.
Hitler carefully studied the parliamentary democratic system: and contempt grew within him for the so-called representatives of the people whom he regarded as talkative time-servers, evading all administrative responsibility and hedging their legislative tasks about with planned obstruction.
The young Hitler might have taken advantage of a slender income that had become available to him through his father's small estate. However, Hitler instructed the trustees to send his share, of seventeen crowns a month, to his sister. Meantime Adolf was doing post-cards and other paintings in water colours; and to this day some of the originals are in existence and very greatly prized.
Hitler was in his early twenties when he left Vienna. In his soul had been kindled the divine fire of God which was to rouse the Germanic spirit against Satanism. As He himself wrote later in "Mein Kampf," "Only a storm of glowing passion can turn the destinies of nations; but this passion can only be aroused by the man who carries it within him." So did the Holy Spirit of God burn within the heart and soul of Adolf Hitler, to whom bad been entrusted by Almighty God the Judgment on Mammon and the establishment of the Kingdom of God on Earth in National Socialism.
Going to Munich in 1912. in order to pursue his political work, Hitler said of his years there that they were "the happiest and by far the most satisfying time" of his life to date. In Munich his theme was the unworthiness of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy to be allied with the German empire. The people of Munich had a reputation for treating strangers with tolerance. And Hitler, with his German Nationalist ideas and engaging Austrian temperament, was well liked and received in Bavaria.
The war of 1914 was accepted as a release from injustice, and interpreted as a fight for a better order. Nearly two million men volunteered to fight for Germany. On August 3, 1914. Adolf Hitler handed a petition to His Majesty King Ludwig III., to be allowed to serve in the Bavarian Army. Permission was granted on the following day.
Hitler fought in his first battle on October 27, 1914. He was considered a good soldier, "zunftig," which means capable, useful, and companionable. Hitler did not carouse off duty like ordinary soldiers, and he did not bother about women. Often he was seen to be alone and in deep thought. He told his comrades that Germany would be denied victory. He declared that the invisible, internal enemy was a greater danger than the supposed enemy. While yet he was in the Army he attacked Jews and Marxists, and announced that he would not salute a Jewish officer.
On August 4, 1918. Hitler won the Iron Cross, First Class. The distinction was earned "for general bravery" and the specific incident of "capturing a French lieutenant and twenty men." "The corporal of the world war" was wounded on October 7, 1916, and was five months away from the front line. Dissatisfaction was being spread by the Jews on the home front. In Bavaria the spirit of revolution against Prussia was being whipped up by agitators. Demoralisation set in, and the Jew, Rathenau, gained control of industry, towards the setting up of Jewish State capitalism.
On October 14, 1918, Adolf Hitler was blinded by mustard gas used by the British. He staggered back with his last message. He was in hospital again, and remained in Pasewalk until the 13th November. Then he joined the reserve regiment in Munich. Soldiers' Councils were now in power. Hitler spent the winter months in Traunstein; pay and food were found for him, as for thousands of other soldiers, by the Army. Hitler remained a pensioner of the State until April, 1920.
The Army, except in Bavaria remained "non-political." It helped Republicans to put down Communism; and it formed the nucleus for the counter-revolution of the future. Hitler maintained his contacts with the Army. and worked with the authorities against Marxism. He was appointed to a post as political instructor with the Army in Munich. The Bavarian General Staff designated him as "Education Officer." He used his position to attack Jews and Marxists. Hitler himself wrote: "Many thousands of my comrades were brought back to their Fatherland and People in the course of my lectures. I 'nationalised' the Company. ... "
About this time Hitler made contact with certain spiritualist circles. An excommunicated priest is said to have brought him messages from a saintly spirit, with the command to break the fetters of Versailles. Hitler indeed heard the Divine Command to school himself for his great tasks. For He was chosen to be the Saviour of Germany and of the whole world. Many, many times He made the solemn declaration that God had chosen him for this task of destroying the system of International Jewish Finance.
In June, 1919, Hitler first met and heard Gottfried Fedor speak on loan capital, and was deeply impressed by his arguments. The struggle for freedom from the bondage of interest was incorporated in the 24 points of the National Socialist programme. Hitler had dreamed of a new political party when he was in Vienna. Now he saw that Feder's anti-finance-capitalist views were the essential condition of the Party programme.
In September, 1919, Hitler was commissioned to attend a meeting of the "German Workers' Party." At this meeting Hitler earned applause for his attack on a Bavarian separatist. Hitler was invited to join the Party, and became member No. 7. Hermann Esser and Julius Streicher were party comrades. Soon Hitler became Propaganda Chief, and the Party was renamed the National Socialist German Workers' Party. The Movement made rapid progress, and after many successful public meetings it was possible in February, 1921, to fill the Krone Circus in Munich to capacity. General von Epp bought a Munich paper for the Party, and it became the "Völkischer Beobachter."
The amazing success of the Party was undoubtedly due to the merits of Adolf Hitler. He worked with an inspiration which was truly phenomenal. In 1924, when he was on trial for treason, Hitler declared, "It was not out of modesty that I wanted to be a drummer. That was my highest aim." Hitler had always realised the fundamental importance of propaganda. He realised also the fascination which a clear demonstration of strength gave to the masses. At the Nazi meetings force was used to break force brought by the opposition. The Meeting in the Festsaal of the Hofbräuhaus is quoted as a classic example of the Nazi technique. Storm troopers, in groups of eight, broke up the opposition. Rudolf Hess was prominent on this occasion, and soon became Hitler's secretary.
National Socialism has always been the Party of Youth. Nor did these vigorous young men shrink from intolerance and brutality when their exercise might prove necessary. Hitler wanted not a debating society, but a determined band of fighters. Out of these early fighters grew the official bodies, the S.A., and the elite S.S.
Hitler knew that the masses remember an idea only if it is repeated many times. He said, "Propaganda must restrict itself to a small compact theme, and this it must everlastingly repeat." He was realistic enough to know that the masses act and react according to certain raw and fundamental human emotions. Democratic majorities are, indeed, often accumulations of stupidity and cowardice. Hitler applied to this problem and to the leadership of the masses the immense energy of his will. In his work he always emphasised the prime importance of the will which, rather than any abstract intelligence, determines the course of history. Hitler's manner of speaking was described by one of his biographers as "an elemental phenomenon, one of nature's marvels." He was teeming with energy and abundance, which completely annihilated the opposition through very spiritual vigour.
At the climax of a Hitler speech "men broke out in delirious applause, and women groaned and felt the tender, painful ecstasy of passion." Sometimes he would just shout three words, when speech had advanced beyond ordinary dimensions, and when the soul of the speaker and audience were united in rapturous spiritual heights. Hitler would thunder forth the passionate cry of the Aryan race-soul, "Germany! Germany! Germany!"
Always Adolf Hitler pursued the struggle against the world enemy, the International Jews. He would illustrate the diabolical scheming of these sons of the devil by simple stories. Thus, "Moses Cohen agitates upstairs in the directors' office against the workers; while in the factory yard his brother, Isaac Cohen, union secretary, stirs up the workers against the management."
Post-war Munich was full of intrigue, with many armed groups and 400 political murders in 1921. There was deep cleavage between the Rightists and Republicans, and also between the Bavarians and the Prussians. Hitler succeeded eventually in bridging the gulf between these two parts of Germany, and also in creating a unified people, with reconciliation between the various classes. The Movement meantime prospered in these early days and Hitler himself lived in comparative affluence in Munich. He was making contacts with all social groups and with many of the best families.
The year 1923 saw German currency crash; economic and social conditions deteriorated rapidly. Hitler's Movement grew apace. Overseas he was winning support from prominent anti-Semites in America and elsewhere. Hitler was joined and helped by Capt. Goering, Capt. Roehm, and the philosopher, Alfred Rosenberg. He also made contact with General Ludendorff. The General greatly admired Hitler and his propaganda power. He held the view that the war had not been lost militarily. His special targets for attack were Jews, Catholics, and Freemasons.
During this year also Hitler mapped out plans for the Nationalist "Fighting Leagues." Germanic spirit was rising, and there was even talk of marching on Berlin. On November 9, 1923, exactly five years after the notorious "November Revolution" in which the Jew, Kurt Eisner, had proclaimed the Republic, the Putsch was attempted in Munich. After May 1 in Munich the State had passed into the administrative hands of Kahr, Lossow, and Seisser. Hitler had important contacts with this group. On November 8 there was a Meeting at the Burgerbrauhaus "to destroy Marxism." Hitler and his men seized the Hall, and Hitler himself addressed the city leaders in a side room. He told them, "The Reich government is formed, ... You can fight with me, to conquer or die." He stressed that the attack was directed only against the Jews' Berlin Government.
After Hitler's initial success the two Governments temporarily existed side by side Hitler inspected his irregulars; and the soldiers' leagues from the country began to move in. It had never been Hitler's intention to rebel against the Reichswehr and the Police, but rather with them. However, when Government buildings did not surrender to the new regime, it became clear that Hitler had been betrayed. Hitler declared that Kahr was the traitor. None the less, on the next morning 2,000 Nazis, 12 abreast, marched. Tens of thousands sympathised with the Movement. General Ludendorff matched with the Nazis. The Police fired on the marchers, and 14 men fell. Hitler, together with a wounded comrade whom he had saved, escaped towards the mountains of Austria. Only ten years later Adolf Hitler was in power, marching with the rifles, not against them.
From February 26 until March 27, 1924, at the Munich People's Court Hitler, Ludendorff and eight others were put on trial for high treason. Hitler declared: "We had the intention of restoring liberty to our country and to deliver it from tyranny. If we had had other selfish aims, all of us here would deserve only one penalty, death." Cheers and hurrahs broke out in the Courtroom. Indeed, the Prosecutor was afraid to provoke Hitler too far. Hitler had been to some considerable extent the instrument of the executive. The Bavarian regents had acknowledged Hitler's services. The spirit presiding over the Court was that of "National German." Pöhner, the Police President whom Hitler had praised for his patriotism, termed the Republic "the foulest kind of popular deception, directed by Jews, deserters and bribed traitors against the German people." Kahr, Lossow, and Seisser, who since November had lost their high office, were put in the position of accused by the defendants. The high point was when Hitler accused General von Lossow of breaking his word of honour. The General was so shaken that he walked out of the court and never returned.
Adolf Hitler declared before the Court: "I am not a criminal. If today I stand here as a revolutionary, it is as a revolutionary against the revolution of the November criminals." He said that he was acting for the Police, the Army and the State. He wanted to give the cowards courage. Hitler, in his final and historic speech. which held the Court in rapt attention, said that destiny had singled him out for a great mission. Ludendorff, in his defence, made an attack on the Catholic Church. The Nazis were sure that their plans had been sabotaged by "King and Cardinal." The closing stages of the trial were a great social event. The ladies wore red, white and black bows. Ludendorff was acquitted, and in great disgust said, "I consider my acquittal a disgrace to the uniform and decorations that I wear." Adolf Hitler was sent to prison for six months.
Hitler was imprisoned in Landsberg on the Lech. His imprisonment was considered to be honourable, and he was given a very friendly welcome. The Governor of the Prison subsequently declared that he had been converted to National Socialism by Adolf Hitler while he was his prisoner. Hitler, Kriebel, Weber and Hess were called "the generals" by the other prisoners. On Hitler's birthday a large number of parcels arrived from friends all over Germany; and aeroplanes flew over the prison in honour of the German leader.
Hitler wrote the first part of "Mein Kampf" here. He dictated to Hess straight on to the typewriter. By 1936 two million copies of the German edition of "Mein Kampf" had been circulated.
In all his writings and work Hitler insisted upon the vital importance of "Weltanschauung" or philosophy. At the age of 20 in Vienna he had absorbed the basic elements of German Nationalism. He was influenced by his German nationalist history teacher in Linz, and by Schönerer and Lueger, Pan-German members of the Austrian Reichsrat. He was also helped by the Russo-German, Alfred Rosenberg, who joined Hitler in 1920. Rosenberg was chief editor of the Nazi paper, the "Völkischer Beobachter," and was the recognised trustee of National Socialist ideology.
In the middle of the 19th century the Frenchman, Gobineau, produced his book, "Of the Inequality of Races." He wrote about the undoubted Aryan roots of true civilisation. Gobineau discovered the Aryans in the Himalayas, and gave definitions of "Aryan" as "honourable" and "men of honour who are worthy of reverence and respect, and in a wider sense probably men who, if they were not given what was their due, were able to take it for themselves." Gobineau also said, "As for their physical build, there can be no doubt that it was the most beautiful heard of. ... This race of men, so richly provided with the greatest bodily beauty, was not less supreme in mind. ..."
Later in the century the Englishman, Houston Stewart Chamberlain wrote: "Only disgraceful mental sloth or shameless distortion of history can see in the entry of the Teutons into world history anything other than the rescue of dying mankind from the claws of eternal bestiality." He declared his "sincere conviction that the moral and intellectual salvation of mankind depends on that which we may call German." Chamberlain married the daughter of Richard Wagner, and took German nationality. After seeing Hitler, just before the Putsch, Chamberlain said: "At one stroke you have transformed the state of my soul. That Germany in the hour of its greatest need can produce a Hitler testifies to its vitality." Thus did this great writer on " Völkisch" theology welcome Adolf Hitler in Biblical terms as a great Aryan Saviour.
Hitler himself seldom read books. He was an inspired creator. Of the racial question he said, "It provides not only the key to world history, but also to human culture as a whole." He believed in the validity of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which arose from the first Zionist Congress.
Certain fundamental points of philosophy arise from study of Hitlerism. Hitler believed in the victory of the strong and racially pure. Humanitarianism, in its guardianship of botched and crossbred races, was sheer idiocy. The Jew had used an emaciated and "humanitarian" Christianity to raise himself on the destroyed strong instincts of the true Aryan aristocrat.
Socialism through Adolf Hitler has become a German or Aryan Socialism. A farmer and an industrialist are counted as workers. The Stock Exchange operator and the finance-capitalist, as opposed to the producer capitalist, are the parasites to be eliminated. Hitler did not shrink from strong words and phrases. He could speak of "brutal violence" and "barbaric ruthlessness." He described the poor proletariat in its worst manifestations as a "physically bungled and intellectually bankrupt pack of wretches." They were incapable of thought. He rejoiced that "we have the blessing even today in our German people of great undiluted elements of Nordic-Germanic mankind."
Hitler believed in the leadership principle, in the "master in his house" principle. He believed in the great heroes of history. He recognised that little men always try to stand between genius and power. He was against the degenerate "modern" tendencies in art. Hitler always praised the Army, to which he declared that Germany owed everything. He said, "In the swamp of all-pervading softness and effeminacy, 350,000 young men teeming with strength sprang every year from the ranks of the Army."
Hitler looked forward to the time when instead of there being 80 million Germans living in Europe there would be 250 million Germans living on the Continent in 100 years' time. He advocated Eugenic Courts to prevent the unfit from reproducing themselves, and declared that only 600 years of this would "contribute to a revival of health which today seems scarcely conceivable." He wrote, "A State which in an age of racial poisoning devotes itself to the care of its best racial elements must one day become master of the earth." A realistic point of policy was the injunction that where there was the choice between strong and weak men, one should choose alliance with the strong.
Of religion, Hitler said: "For the politician the assessment of the value of a religion must be determined riot so much by any faults it may have as by the good qualifies of a manifestly better substitute. But as long as a substitute of this kind is apparently lacking, the existing religion can only be demolished by fools or criminals."
Of his ultimate aims in the religious sphere we may, however, gather interesting information from the report of his talk to a small party in his flat in Munich in October, 1932. Hitler said. "Naturally, practical politics demands that, for the time being at least, we must avoid any appearance of a campaign against the Church." He already recognised that National Socialism was a "Weltanschauung" and, in fact, a religion which was now building itself up and disseminating itself, except that its forms of activity and propaganda were different. "National Socialism," he said, "is able to influence greater masses at once than the Church possibly can."
Hitler said, "National Socialism is a form of conversion, a new faith, but we don't need to raise that issue – it will come of itself. Just as I insist on the mathematical certainty of our coming to power, because might always attracts might ... just so do I insist on the certainty that sooner or later the 'Deutscher Kirche' will be established. Yes, the German Church, without a Pope and without the Bible – and Luther, if be could be with us, would Live us his blessing." Hitler said that eventually Germany would have her own temples and shrines. Christianity had been perverted from its true and original spirit. Hitler always spoke with reverence of Jesus Christ, who is sometimes and wrongly supposed to have been a Jew. It is the Jews and the judaised Churches who have forced this erroneous view on mankind. Hitler declared, "It is the tragedy of the Germanic world that Jesus was judaised, distorted, falsified; and an alien Asiatic spirit was forced upon us. That is a crime we must repair."
Adolf Hitler's trial had made him very popular in Germany. The Governor of Landsberg Prison described him as "humble, modest, agreeable, quiet, sensible, and serious. He neither smokes nor drinks, and although he is on good terms with his fellow prisoners they look up to him as a man of authority." The Governor added, "He has no leaning towards women. Women with whom he came into contact here during visits he treated with great politeness, without however entering into serious political discussions with them." Hitler was so absorbed in his work that he refused to see even a Princess when he was busy dictating.
Hitler directed the Movement from prison; and the authorities gave him considerable assistance to do so. Outside, Rosenberg was in charge of political work; while Roehm commanded the storm troops. Hitler believed in the principles of Clausewitz, who said that the army should always subordinate itself to politics. Roehm's "Frontbahn" was something of an embarrassment to Hitler. The purging of Roehm in 1934 was really the culmination of many years in which he had been disloyal to Adolf Hitler. One of the main reasons for the success of Hitler's Movement was the unquestioning loyalty which was given to him by his followers. Responsibility to higher officers, with authority over those below, were recognized principles of the organisation of the National Socialist Movement. And such loyalty and principles form the foundation of all future work for the Aryan Cause.
German conditions in general, together with the currency, had been at their lowest ebb when the Putsch took place, May, 1924, had seen Völkisch successes in the Reichstag. However, American credits temporarily repaired the financial position of Germany and Stresemann had charge of policy from 1924-29. The new Reichstag had only 14 against 32 Nationalists formerly. There was a certain disunity amongst the Nationalists. Only Hitler stood firm with his Movement, sure of his mission and destiny.
Until the time of the Putsch, the national misery and the power of the Army had brought Hitler forward. After 1930 widespread unemployment helped the people to understand his alternatives in the National Socialist programme as against capitalism and Jewish Marxism. Hitler was also able to bring powerful existing institutions to his side. Even Hitler's enemies give him credit for holding the Movement together during the Stresemann period. The. Prosperity during this time was quite fictitious, and left Germany heavily in debt to Jewish International Finance. Pan-Germans worked behind the scenes, as guardians of the national conscience. However, Hitler knew that activism was necessary, "a political party organised on the model of shock troops." The Nazis tolerated no humbug from the so-called Nationalists, and argued like this: "You pretend to be a Nationalist? And you put up with military control, the occupation, the obligation to pay tribute, the entire 'peace dictate' of Versailles? And of your own free-will you make new treaties with the victors and oppressors who suck us dry."
The Youth Movement came to Hitler's side. It was first strong in the volunteer corps, fighting against Bolsheviks at home and abroad. At the Nazi Party Congress at Nuremberg in August, 1927, 20,000 Storm troop men paraded. From then it advanced from strength to strength, and the Hitler Youth has given an example to the whole world.
During the Stresemann period the opponents of National Socialism tried to break the Movement. It was argued that Hitler was not of German nationality. Cardinal Faulhaber said from the pulpit that the Völkisch Movement was Antichrist. Ludendorff received only 300,000 votes in the presidential election of 1925, as against Hindenburg's 15 million. Hitler's achievement in disciplining the Nationalists was phenomenal. They were inclined to quarrel amongst themselves. Yet he, the South German, was able to overcome all difficulties, including the North German prejudice – this latter victory being a truly remarkable achievement. Hitler was a master of tactics in making personal contacts. In December, 1924, there had been 14 seats held by various Nationalist parties. By 1928 only Hitler and a compact Nazi Party remained to fight the Cause. He had 12 members in the Reichstag, and the Party was small but vital, the heart of the fight for a United and Nationalist Germany. Hitler's policy was constantly to attack and to court attack. He was helped now by industrialists, notably Mutschmann and Kirdorf. Stresemann was hated by the Nationalists because of his surrender to external capitalism.
Hitler was able to work with the Nationalist leader, Hugenberg. And with Seldte, leader of the Steel Helmets. Dr. Goebbels was District Leader of Berlin. He had written to Hitler, "Before the Court in Munich you grew in our minds to the stature of a leader. The words you spoke there were the greatest uttered in Germany since Bismarck ... It is the catechism of a new political faith, in the desperation of a crumbling, God-bereft world. ... Like every great leader, you grew with your task; you grew great as your task grew greater, until you became a miracle . ..." Hitler had amazing power in reconciling the most diverse elements in his Movement. Thus, Hugenberg, Gregor Strasser, and Roehm were held together by the direction which Hitler gave them.
The "People's Petition" of July 9, 1929, directed against new obligations on the part of the Reich, helped Hitler in gaining the support of the masses. The ordinary bourgeois Nationalists, as distinct from the National Socialists, had been afraid to ally themselves with the Petition.
National Socialism was chiefly resisted by the Marxists and Catholics. The Nazi Party reached a new high peak of activity in 1931. The annual budget was of 85 million marks. Just before the Party came to power the debts of the organisation were 12 million marks. The most intensive process was used in the building of the party, and the members gave of their services fanatically. They were more active than all the other Parties. When elections were being held, they were the activists par excellence, and their concentration on propaganda and every possible detail of electioneering was exemplary. Nation-wide organisation founded 60 Nazi newspapers in the course of a year. Heavy industry helped the Party. The Young Plan was a target for the National Socialists.
The Strasser Brothers gave Hitler some trouble. They were ambitious, self-centred, without understanding of team work. Team work, with loyalty to the leader, is the essence of National Socialist organisation. The Srassers had doctrinaire discussions with Adolf Hitler, who went to Berlin especially to clear up the matter, which had now come to a head. Hitler laid down his principles clearly. "The mass of the workers only want bread and games." He brought National Socialist logic to oppose the hazy leanings of the Strassers, who had favoured a form of industry controlled by unskilled workers. The workers want justice, social and economic, rather than to control industry. The idea of workers' control has been used by the Jew to gain political advantage, and subsequently to foist Jewish capitalism upon those whom he has deluded and then betrayed.
Hitler declared: "We want a new ruling class, which by better race is entitled to rule, and which will ruthlessly support and guarantee this rule over the broad masses." "All revolutions are racial struggles." Thus the Marxist revolution was the attempt of the Jew to foist his Bolshevik system upon the world, "the struggle of the substratum of lower race against the ruling higher race." Of the world situation he declared, "It is our task to undertake the organisation of the whole world on a vast scale, so that every country produces what is most natural to it, while the white race, the Nordic race, takes upon itself the organisation of this gigantic plan." Hitler always stressed the need for cooperation with England. And it was England's folly that she did not reciprocate the offered German friendship.
On September 14, 1930, there were new Reichstag elections. Eighty-two per cent of the electorate voted. Six and a half millions were with the Swastika banner. The Nazis had 107 members in the new Reichstag, and became the second largest Party in the Reich.
Their organisation and work was like "an ever and ceaselessly rolling sea." In 1915 the poet, Rudolf Binding, had said that Germany's need was "a religion of military strength" – the German word, "wehrhaftigheit."
The years 1930-32 were years of growing depression. This position helped the Nazis. In 1932 Germany had 6 million unemployed. The S.A. Brown Shirt battalions grew correspondingly in strength. On November 6, 1932, elections were again held. This was the first time that the Party suffered a set-back. Three months previously 13 1/2 million votes had been polled for them, and they had had 230 seats in the Reichstag. The Communists now gained ground. Bruening, Von Papen, and Von Schleicher intrigued for power and were successively in the lead in short-lived administrations. Gregor Strasser was a traitor to the Party, and was eliminated from its ranks. Support came again to Hitler through Von Papen and heavy industry. And on January 30, 1933, Adolf Hitler came to power with his National Socialist Party. He was appointed Chancellor by the President, Von Hindenburg. Tens of thousands of the S.A. Brown Shirts, the S.S. Black Shirts, and the Stahlhelm, paraded down the Wilhelmstrasse before Hitler and Hindenburg.
The history of Germany from 1933-39 is that of a nation which, in spite of considerable economic disadvantages and a world opinion, poisoned by International Jewry and hostile to her, yet showed an example of united effort, political sagacity and achievement, which has never before been equalled in the annals of mankind. The National Socialist Revolution, the most peaceful and yet the most far-reaching that the world has ever known, demonstrated the genius of the German race, led by a God-ordained man, to create a State pattern which will be followed by all the enlightened nations of the earth. In an era of social confusion this achievement was and remains the "Light to the Gentiles" which will inspire generations of the redeemed in the rebuilding of their world.
Hitler did not achieve supreme power in Germany immediately. However, the Communists soon showed their hand and set the Reichstag on fire. The Nazis took the strongest measures now with the Opposition, and within six months of his assuming power an Enabling Bill was passed by a majority in the Reichstag to give Adolf Hitler the unquestioned Leadership of Germany. The leadership principle was the backbone of the State administrative machine, giving responsibility towards those above, and authority over those below, in the interests of Germanic reassertion in the world.
In October, 1933, Germany left the Disarmament Conference at Geneva as a protest against the continuing and totally unjust Treaty of Versailles, and also against the failures of the other powers to live up to their protestations of goodwill. France and Britain wanted to leave Germany permanently weak while they maintained their strength. Hitler's efforts for peace were dogged by the Jews and imperialists, and he said of the year 1936: "Historians will one day record that never were the peaceful proposals of one man met with more hatred than were mine. When Germany became the example to the world of the peaceful solution of social problems and economic difficulties, the hatred of the Bolsheviks and capitalists, the exploiters of nations, was turned against her. Only then did I turn to create the new German Wehrmacht."
In June, 1934, an attempt at counter-revolution in Germany was broken by the iron will and determination of Adolf Hitler, who himself took charge of the measures to smash the traitors. The revolt was led by Roehm and Von Schleicher. There had been talk of the impending attempt to overthrow the Nazi regime for months beforehand in London; and it showed that hostile elements in Britain were active and prepared to go to any lengths to try to remove Hitler. The revolt collapsed, however, within a few hours, annihilated by the strong and immediate steps taken by the inspired Führer of the German nation to protect its safety and honour.
In 1935 reconstruction in Germany was going ahead in every department of the national life, backed by a united racial will, and led by far-seeing and able men. During this year the Saar plebiscite gave this German territory back to Germany, when 90 per cent. of the people voted for inclusion within the Reich. This was also the year of the Anglo-German Naval Treaty, in which Hitler renounced the idea of a comparable German Fleet with that of Britain and France. In 1935 Goering announced that Germany had an Air Force; and on 16 March compulsory military service was reintroduced. There followed the occupation and remilitarisation of the Rhine, when Hitler risked war for the first time and acted, as he was many times and successfully later to act, against the advice of his generals. The Union with Germany of Austria, so longed for by these two Germanic peoples, came about in March, 1938. Meantime Western imperialism was working for a death-grapple between Russia and Germany, which they visualised as helping them in their retention of the balance of power policy so beloved of and exploited by Britain throughout the last century.
After Hitler had come to power, the membership of the Nazi Party was closed except for special applications. Those who had fought their way up with the Party were the recipients of the benefits and confidence which their sacrifices had earned. The Party organisations extended to all spheres of the national community, with the express purpose "to advise national comrades in all problems of life, help them as far as possible in case of need, and in every way to take care of them." There was not a street in the whole of Germany which was not included within the sphere of the Party. National Socialism provided an example of positive and practical Christianity, in which the principle of loving your neighbour was actually put into practice instead of remaining an abstract principle.
The Nuremberg racial laws of September, 1935, legislated for the Jewish Question in Germany, and provided the pattern for other nations. There were two tests, the "Aryan" test back to the grandparents, and the more severe "Aryan" test back to 1800. Everyone with three or four grandparents born Jews was regarded legally as a Jew.
It was in March, 1939, that the rot set in between Germany and Britain. The Munich Agreement of Autumn, 1938, had not pleased the Jews and their collaborators. So when the opportunity arose later to stir up hatred in the British Press and on the Radio, the Jews took control and prepared their war of revenge on Nazi Germany. And on September 3, 1939, Britain declared war on Germany on the pretext of the guarantee to Poland which had been given to make war certain. For the Capitalists knew that in Peace the system of National Socialism would soon spread to all countries. They had verily to fight for their continued existence with the lives of Gentile slaves whom they had enchained to their service.
Adolf Hitler and the united German nation now fought the Jewish system externally as previously they had fought it internally. They fought in defence of their Sacred Revolution which, whatever the outcome of the war materially, was God-ordained to be carried as a Holy Gospel to the whole world. On September 1, 1939, Hitler declared before the Reichstag: "I desire nothing other than to be the first soldier of the German Reich. I have again put on that old coat which was the most sacred and dear to me of all. I will not take it off until the victory is ours or I shall not live to see the end. There is one word that I have never learned: capitulation.
The Polish campaign was over in a month. Germany used the blitzkrieg method, and had at her service the mightiest war machine that the world had ever known. It was estimated that German rearmament had cost around 90,000,000,000 marks. In Britain after the conclusion of the Polish war the voice of the elder statesman, Lloyd George, was raised for negotiated peace, together with the Mosley and other peace groups; but Jewish pressure prevailed against reason and Aryan interest. Many hundreds of Aryan patriots and friends of Germany, including the writer of this book, were subsequently imprisoned without charge or trial and subjected to long periods of solitary confinement.
In April, 1940, the German Army went into Denmark and Norway. On 10 May the blitz was unleashed against France. On 25 May King Leopold of Belgium surrendered, and on 22 June Marshal Petain, 84-year-old French patriot, accepted armistice with Germany. At the retreat of Dunkirk it was only the decision of Adolf Hitler to stop the advance of his panzers and to offer peace once more which saved Britain from utter disaster. Fascist Italy had now come into the war, and combined with Germany to fight Britain in North Africa. Hitler saved the Italians by campaigns in Yugo-Slavia and Greece in April, 1941. Rommel went to help the Italians in Libya. There were internal conflicts in Iran, Iraq, and Syria.
On June 22, 1941, the German-Russian war started. If the Middle East position had been better for the Germans, the Russian war might not have been necessary. However, the Western imperialists and Jews had been working for a break between the two great Nordic and Slav nations, Germany and Russia; and there was a conspiracy to push Russia against Germany at the moment of her supreme struggle in the West. The intriguing Jew was on both sides, with the Capitalists in New York and London; and with the Bolsheviks in Moscow. He planned to rule the whole world through Franklin Roosevelt, who was later shown to have been conducting plans for assisting Russia and for coordinating the Russian and American systems under the general control of International Jewish Finance. And it was only through the God-given Saviour, Adolf Hitler, and the Sacrifice which He and his faithful millions gave to the world that the designs of the Devil and his followers were thwarted and defeated.
Within six months Hitler's armies had advanced 400 miles into Russia. They penetrated to the outskirts of Leningrad and Moscow. They crossed the river at Rostov, and had entered the Crimea and Caucasus. Russia pursued the scorched earth policy. When their counter-offensive came, after the Stalingrad reverse for the Germans in 1942, the Russians attacked along a 1,000-mile front. Without the Jewish-inspired British and American help to Russia, the Bolsheviks would never have succeeded, and the Germans and Russians would have come to terms. Hitler prophesied, "Britain and America, which have tried to use Bolshevism to destroy Europe, will themselves be denounced by it." The German generals, Von Brauchitsch and Von Reichenau, were relieved of their commands, and Hitler took supreme military control. Always things went better when Hitler, guided by his intuitions, had undisputed command both politically and militarily.
On June 6, 1944, the invasion of Europe was undertaken by the American and British forces. Since 1942 the Russians had been agitating for a Second Front in order to take some of the German pressure off them. But the imperialists followed the strategy of bleeding both Germany and Russia so that they might the more easily seek continuation of their European and world power.
Four thousand ships, with strong aircraft protection, disgorged their troops along the coasts of Northern France. In July, 1944, the Catholic reactionary, Von Stauffenberg. attempted to destroy Adolf Hitler in the notorious bomb plot. History will indict these criminals for their betrayal of the German Cause, which none the less is God-ordained for ultimate triumph. Hitler declared after his miraculous survival from the bomb explosion, which killed men on the other side of the room, but which left him unharmed, "I am a profoundly religious man. I know that when Providence has ordained a man for great purposes, that man is not taken until he has achieved them." He also said, "Only I and those immediately around me know the tremendous sacrifices that Germany has to make in order to achieve the victory over International Jewish Finance. Germany must give her all in this struggle." He said, "The end of this war will see not the end of Aryan humanity, but of Jewish power in Europe. Our world of ideas will become the common property of all peoples, even of our enemies, through this struggle." On February 24, 1945, Hitler declared: "Twenty-five years ago I predicted the victory of our Movement. Today I predict the final victory of the German race."
On April 26, 1945, the Russian and Allied troops met at Torgau, Germany. Two days later Benito Mussolini, the Italian leader and political genius, was executed by partisans, crazed by Jew-provoked hatred; and scenes of hysterical bestiality were witnessed in Italian cities.
On April 30 Adolf Hitler died in action in Berlin. To Von Ribbentrop he had said at their last meeting, "You will see that my spirit will rise from the grave. And the world will see that I was right." Hitler's Testament is recorded in "The Testament of Adolf Hitler," which was published in England in April, 1951. This Document has already gone all over the world as a Witness to Divine Truth, and will live eternally in the honoured records of the Germanic races. In this Holy Testament of Adolf Hitler we read words which will endure for Posterity, and which are not the end but rather the beginning of the great Hitlerian era. For this era and its universal establishment others will now and in the future work, inspired by the Mighty and Undying Spirit of their Führer, the Christ and Chosen of God, Adolf Hitler.
The Testament was signed in Berlin on April 29, 1945. Hitler recorded: "It is not true that I wished for war in 1939, neither I nor anyone else in Germany. War was provoked exclusively by those international statesmen who were of Jewish race or who worked in the interests of International Jewry. ...
"After six years of war which, in spite of all the reverses, will one day pass into history as the most glorious and heroic manifestation of the struggle of a people and race for its existence, I cannot abandon the city which is the capital of this State. ...
"... By the sacrifice of our soldiers, by my comradeship with them right to the end, has been sown the seed which will spring forth in the history of Germany and of Europe in the resurrection of National Socialism together with a nation truly united."
Adolf Hitler concluded his Testament: "May they bear in mind that our task, to institute a Europe National Socialist and Racist, represents the task for centuries to come and obliges every individual always to serve the common good before his private interests. I demand of all Germans, of all National Socialists, men and women, of all the soldiers of the armed forces of National Socialist Europe, that they remain racists to the end, and that they resist without faltering the poison which afflicts all the nations: International Judaism."
Even so may God guide us to follow Him who lives eternally, our Leader and Redeemer, the Greatest Man from God who has ever been sent to the Aryan race. May the Aryans of all the world unite in the bonds of the German Religion and World-philosophy, National Socialism.
