NAZIS in the News
By Alex Constantine
The Daily Mail gossip sheet is reporting: “Patrick Swayze’s niece dumps Neo Nazi husband, just two months after their wedding.” She can’t very well say that she didn’t know — he had the word “RACIST” tattooed to his forehead. “The 23-year-old has ditched white separatist Joshua Steever, 31, after her family pressured her to end the relationship. … Danielle, the daughter of the late Dirty Dancing star’s brother Don, tied the knot with Steever in a secret pagan ritual back in August. …”
Secret pagan ritual. It simply doesn’t get any better than this …
The esstablishment media, of course, like nice, safe, tidy stenographed courtroom reporting, but insights do break through the fog of acceptable reality now and then, as in this story from Spokane, Washington: “Court Documents Reveal Evolution Of MLK Day Bomber’s Racist Beliefs.” Here, we find, “It took white supremacist Kevin Harpham” — at the time, he was known as the “Backpack Bomber” — “a few months to collect bomb materials. But newly unsealed documents show he was mired in the Neo-Nazi movement for more than a decade. Harpham is the man who pleaded guilty to planting a bomb at Spokane’s Martin Luther King Day parade last January. … ”
That’s one more non-Muslim terrorist for Newt Gingrich and Fox News to ignore …
And WeHo News today treats us to “Fascinating Fascist: Gertrude Stein,” and warms us to the topic with this quote from Ms. Stein in New York Times Magazine, May 6, 1934:
“I say that Hitler ought to have the peace prize, because he is removing all the elements of contest and of struggle from Germany. By driving out the Jews and the democratic and Left element, he is driving out everything that conduces to activity. That means peace…. By suppressing Jews… he was ending struggle in Germany.”
The revelations are found in a new book, “Unlikely Collaboration: Gertrude Stein, Bernard Faÿ and the Vichy Dilemma,” by Barbara Will. Philippe Mora, a West Hollywood filmmaker, is the book’s reviewer, and asks, “Gertrude Stein nominating Hitler for Nobel peace prize? What the hell was going on here? … A new book goes a long way to explain it. Barbara Will has written a brilliant, disturbing, even shocking historical saga about modernist icon Gertrude Stein, explaining why this gay Jewish woman escaped the Nazis and Auschwitz in Occupied France. Ms. Will’s profound research revealed a simple, troubling answer: Ms. Stein was an enthusiastic collaborator and an international apologist for the Vichy Government. … ”
The Nazis were nothing if not secretive, of course, so revelations can take a long, long time to reach the public print. The BBC is reporting: “German intelligence files on ex-Nazis shredded.” The German intelligence apparat — founded by Nazi spy/CIA recruit Reinhard Gehlen — is another reason that truth drags its feet where Nazis are concerned: “Investigators have found that in 2007 the German Intelligence Service (BND) destroyed files of 250 BND employees who had been in the Nazi SS or Gestapo.” The BND called the destruction of the Nazi files ‘regrettable and annoying.'” Then why did the BND destroy them? Never mind. The answer is obvious. “Four independent historians are investigating the BND’s old links with the Nazis.” Ah, well, that explains it. Now we’re getting down to brass tacks. “They say some of the missing papers concern suspected war criminals. The historians did not allege a deliberate cover-up, but they urged the BND not to destroy any more files.” I won’t deconstruct this confused logic. We all know that the cover-up was not a breathtaking coincidence.
Hitler’s dirty laundry is given the literal treatment in this story from the Sydney Morning Herald on November 30: Bedtime with Hitler: Nazi leader’s linen for sale.
