Trump Accidentally Said the Anti-Semitic Part Out Loud

Donald Trump accuses Jewish Americans of “great disloyalty”. John Iadarola and Jayar Jackson break it down on The Damage Report.

Trump denounces Jews for “disloyalty” if they do not vote for him. … A spokesman for the liberal Jewish group J Street said, “It is dangerous and shameful for President Trump to attack the large majority of the American Jewish community as unintelligent and ‘disloyal’ … But it is no surprise that the president’s racist, disingenuous attacks on progressive women of color in Congress have now transitioned into smears against Jews”: here.

Trump Quotes Jew-Turned-Evangelical Christian Calling Him ‘King Of Israel’: here.

Anti-Semitic beliefs are growing among evangelical Christians, the Washington Post reported. The shifting attitudes of such groups comes at a moment when Donald Trump is making the anti-Semitic claim that Jews have equal or greater loyalty to Israel than to America. Trump has also made it clear that he is taking cues from evangelical figures and groups, recently tweeting a quote from an evangelical radio host who said that Trump is the “King of Israel”. … “Some associations in certain conservative areas, with Jews being liberal, cosmopolitan, international and that being a threat to American Christian identity: You’re going to find those views, weirdly, right alongside expressing support for Israel”, Daniel Hummel, a historian of Jewish-evangelical relations, told the Post. “Someone like that would be vaguely or even strongly anti-Semitic but also pro-Israel.”: here.

Say What?!? Candace Owens Says Hitler Was ‘OK’ Until ‘He Wanted To Globalize’

Pro-Trump personality Candace Owens described Adolf Hitler’s plan for Germany as initially “OK” while speaking in the same city [London] that the Nazi dictator relentlessly bombed nearly 80 years ago.

Owens said: “When we say nationalism, the first thing people think about, at least in America, is Hitler. … So in thinking about how it could go bad down the line, I don’t really have an issue with nationalism, I really don’t.”

Owens’ comments came during the invite-only London launch of a pro-Trump activist group.

By Colby Hall in the USA, Feb 8th, 2019, 1:18 pm:

Candace Owens, the comm[unication]s director for conservative youth organization Turning Points [sic; Pöint] USA, is getting attention for curious statements she made about Adolf Hitler during a Q&A in London.

The pundit and political activist was asked by an audience member about the rise of nationalism in Western politics, and according to BuzzFeed News reporters Mark Di Stefano and Alex Spence, Owens herself brought up Hitler in response.

“I actually don’t have any problems at all with the word ‘nationalism’”, Owens said. “I think that the definition gets poisoned by elitists that actually want globalism. Globalism is what I don’t want… Whenever we say nationalism, the first thing people think about, at least in America, is Hitler.”

Owens went on to explain that Hitler was a ”national socialist,” before adding “but if Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, okay, fine. The problem is that he wanted, he had dreams outside of Germany. …I don’t really have an issue with nationalism. I really don’t.”

Owens was joined onstage by TPUSA founder Charlie Kirk, who appeared to be totally okay with Owens’ curious defense of the leader of the Third Reich who oversaw the genocide of over six million Jews during World War II.

German AfD politician in Hitler wine scandal

From Sputnik News, 7 November 2018:

Jessica Biessmann, who used to represent the … Alternative for Germany party in Berlin’s parliament, has been in hot water after photos showing the woman in front of bottles with portraits of the Nazi Fu[e]hrer on them. …

Ms Biessmann with Hitler wine bottles

The compromising photos started circulating online in October. They showed the lawmaker lying on a bar counter with several bottles, which had Adolf Hitler’s portrait on them, in the background. …

The German media suggest that wine bottles with Hitler’s portraits and Nazi slogans used to be sold in Italy without any restrictions. In Germany, which is quite sensitive about its past, the distribution of such goods is outlawed, as well as any kind of Nazi propaganda and the spreading of symbols associated with the Third Reich.

Woman in Italy Confronts Store Owner Who Sells Nazi Wine

8 August 2018

The wine is produced by Italian winemaker Vini Lunardelli and is part of their “Historical Series”. The collection has wines named after dictators ranging from Napoleon to Hitler. The Hitler series, titled “Der Fuehrer”, includes both pictures of the dictator and Nazi slogans on bottles as well as pictures of other notorious [nazis] such as Rudolf Hess, Heinrich Himmler, Erwin Rommel and Sepp Dietrich.

In this video obtained exclusively by the World Jewish Congress, a wine store clerk in Northern Italy attempts to attack a woman who exposes on a camera that the store is selling wine with Hitler’s image.

According to this September 2018 article from Austria (translated):

“My labels are very popular with Austrian tourists. Above all, they love the Hitler bottles. Austrians are among my best customers”, says the entrepreneur

from Italy who sells the fascist alcoholic drinks.

According to the London Times, 18 October 2018:

Ms Biessman[n], from the radical right, serves as [the AfD Berlin parliamentary caucus’] family policy expert. She has targeted the Islamic call to prayer, Germany’s “cuddly” justice system and migrant rescue ships in the Mediterranean.

The Berlin AfD now thinks Ms Biessmann’s bottles are bad public relations and have started a procedure against her. Meanwhile AfD leading politicians, far higher up than Biessmann, like Alexander Gauland and Björn Hocke, are very welcome in the party to whitewash Adolf Hitler and his murderous warriors.

Associated Press reports. October 17, 2018:

Separately, daily newspaper Thueringer Allgemeine reports that a senior AfD member in Thuringia state quit after photos surfaced showing him posing behind a swastika tablecloth while visiting Hitler-related sites in 2015.

Japanese Deputy Prime Minister claims Hitler had ‘good intentions’

This 1 August 2013 video is about Japanese Deputy PM retracting remarks defending Hitler’s genocidal policies.

That was then. And now …

While United States President Donald Trump whitewashes United States neonazis, a Japanese right-wing colleague of Trump whitewashes old German nazi Adolf Hitler.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Deputy Prime Minister of Japan makes Nazi remark again (and that’s not a coincidence)

Japanese Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso did not raise dust for the first time with a remark about World War II. During a seminar on politics, 76-year-old Aso said that Adolf Hitler had “good intentions”.

“Hitler, who killed millions of people, was wrong, although he had good intentions,” said the Japanese. There was a storm of criticism in Japan and abroad. Aso, who is also Finance Minister, retracted his words. …

According to correspondent Kjeld Duits, the retraction of controversial words is typical of Aso. “He is familiar with this, and the Japanese language is also good for expressing vague expressions,” said Duits. “You say something that can mean several things and everybody knows you mean one thing, but then you say afterwards that you meant something different.”

Aso did something similar in 2013 when he suggested that Japan had to follow the example of the Nazis in changing the pacifist constitution. “We can do it secretly, as the Weimar constitution suddenly changed into the Nazi constitution, without anyone being aware of it. Why do we not learn from that tactic?”

Later, Aso corrected his words, but he refused to resign. The fact that he mentions the Nazis several times is not a coincidence, Duits thinks. “You have groups, including supporters of Aso, who think that Japan – and thus their German ally – was not wrong in the war.

“So this is what they want to hear. They are happy with it,” said Duits. And that’s nice for Aso, because he may be in the race to become Prime Minister of Japan. From 2008 to 2009, the Liberal Democrat [euphemistic name of this right-wing party] was also prime minister and elections will be held again by the end of 2018.

‘Just dangerous’

The Simon Wiesenthal Center, which monitors anti-Semitism worldwide, reacted to Aso’s words. “We are disappointed. This is just the latest of a troubling list of ‘misstatements’ and are downright dangerous. These words are harmful to Japan.”

Earlier this week, the center was also critical of a famous Japanese plastic surgeon. This Katsuya Takasu had stressed that he had learned at the university in Germany how beautiful Nazism was.

Also, the surgeon doubts on Twitter if the Holocaust really happened. “Jews were certainly prosecuted, but we know about it only second-hand and based on declarations from the Allies.” The Simon Wiesenthal Center has called on the association of plastic surgeons to investigate Takasu. …

And I know of two fashion shows at fashion colleges where students in this kind of [SS] uniform walked on the catwalk and did Hitler salutes” says Duits.

According to Dutch daily NRC Handelsblad (translated):

Aso studied economics and led the family corporation Aso Cement and other corporations, before becoming a politician in 1979, with a career in the LDP in parliament and various government posts.

This business has a remarkable wartime past. In the mines of Aso Cement during World War II, three hundred allied prisoners of war are said to have worked, including Dutch people. Apologies for this have never been made.

Pictures from Japanese neo-Nazi Kazunari Yamada’s website show him posing with Shinzo Abe’s internal affairs minister, Sanae Takaichi, and his party’s then policy chief, Tomomi Inada

These pictures from Japanese neo-nazi leader Kazunari Yamada’s website show him posing with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s internal affairs minister, Sanae Takaichi, and Abe’s party’s then policy chief, Tomomi Inadalater minister of war … sorry for forgetting to use the euphemism ‘defence’ … of Japan.

Amid the escalating danger of war on the Korean Peninsula, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced a sudden election Monday evening, stating he would dissolve the lower house of parliament on Thursday. Campaigning will begin October 10 and the election will take place on October 22. It is the first general election since December 2014. The ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) already has sizable majorities in both houses of the Japanese Diet or parliament. Abe has called the snap poll, above all, to whip up a climate of fear and panic over North Korea so as to intensify his push for Japan’s remilitarization: here.

‘Make Germany great again’, Hitler said

Make America Great Again, Donald Trump cap

From Politicus USA:

Move Over Trump: Adolf Hitler Said He Would ‘Make Germany Great Again’

By Hrafnkell Haraldsson on Fri, Nov 25th, 2016 at 7:57 am

“He told people that he would make Germany great again. He blamed Jews, Socialists, Communists, and others for the troubles of the land.”

That’s right. Donald Trump isn’t the originator of #MAGA. That would be Adolf Hitler, who, if he never made it a slogan, did make the idea “Make Germany Great Again” a central theme of his political movement.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette preserves in its January 4, 1934 issue, a syndicated biopic (“Uncle Ray’s Corner”) of the German leader. …

Make Germany great again, by Hitler

And this “Make Germany Great Again” line was no more a one-off for Hitler than for Trump. The St. Louis Star and Times carried a Hitler speech in 1940 where the Führer said,

“Nationalism and Socialism had to be redefined and they had to be blended into one strong new idea to carry new strength which would make Germany great again.”

Is there an even earlier example of this ‘great’ rhetoric than Hitler in 1934?

Yes, there is.

In July 2016, this blog quoted:

In 1927, Fox News Service filmed Benito Mussolini telling immigrants to ‘make America great’

Hitler imitated earlier fascist dictator Mussolini in various ways, including Mussolini‘s ‘Roman’ salute, which in nazi Germany became the ‘German’ salute. The ‘German’ salute as demonstrated recently by Trump-supporting neonazis in Washington DC, USA.

United States anti-Semitic right-wingers like Henry Ford inspired German nazis. When Mussolini sacked many public sector workers, he called that ‘drenare la palude’: in English, ‘drain the swamp’, a Trump slogan: here.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

Italian newspaper distributes Mein Kampf as its weekend supplement

Today, 11:47

An Italian newspaper has fallen into disrepute because it published Hitler‘s Mein Kampf as its supplement in the Saturday edition. The Jewish community in Italy and historians call the action of the newspaper “indecent” and “dangerous”.

The newspaper Il Giornale published the complete and original Italian edition of Mein Kampf from 1937

so, from a time when Mussolini, fascist dictator of Italy, was Hitler’s ally

today as part of a series of eight books about the Nazis. The controversial book by Hitler is first in the series.

Abyss of hatred

A spokesman for the Jewish community in Italy responded yesterday to the announcement of the publication. “It should be clearly stated: the action of Il Giornale is indecent,” said Renzo Gettegna. He calls the free distribution by the newspaper “a filthy act light years away from any single logic when it comes to studying the Holocaust.” According to him, it does not do justice to “the factors which made humanity sank into an abyss of infinite hate, death and violence.” …

Il Giornale is a conservative newspaper which has always supported former Prime Minister Berlusconi

being (partly) owned by Berlusconi

says correspondent Rop Zoutberg. “What critics find objectionable is that Il Giornale is trying to get its sales up by the publication of Mein Kampf.”

Earlier this week there was also in Germany a fuss over plans for a new publication of Mein Kampf by a right-wing conservative publishing house. The book is in stores in Germany since the beginning of this yea, but only in a version in which lies and inaccuracies are shown in Hitler’s argumentation. In the Netherlands the trade in a reprint of the book is banned.

From the New York Times in the USA, 1 June 2016:

A German publisher of right-wing books has begun selling a reprint of Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf,” originally issued in 1943 by the Nazi party’s central publishing house, a move that risks violating Germany’s law against the distribution of Nazi propaganda.

Now, state prosecutors in the German city of Leipzig, where the publisher, Der Schelm, is based, are investigating whether they can press charges. …

The house [Der Schelm] … also offers a reprinted edition of the German translation of Henry Ford’s “International Jew” …

The move comes as a new far-right political party, Alternative for Germany, has risen in popularity, in part, by appealing to fears linked to the arrival last year of a million migrants and by questioning many of the liberal policies and premises that have dominated public discourse in postwar Germany.

German Islamophobes make Hitler copycat Bachmann their Fuehrer again

The image of Lutz Bachmann styled as Adolf Hitler was published by the Dresden Morgenpost after a reader spotted it on Facebook

From daily The Guardian in Britain:

Pegida head Lutz Bachmann reinstated after furore over Hitler moustache photo

The leader of Germany’s anti-Islamisation movement resigned in January after the image – which he now says was doctored – went viral

Lutz Bachmann has been reinstated as the head of Germany’s anti-Islamisation movement Pegida, a month after resigning over a photo showing him posing with a Hitler moustache.

The group confirmed on its Facebook page that the 42-year-old had been re-elected as chairman on Sunday by the six other members of the organisation’s leadership committee.

The Sächsische Zeitung reported last week that the Hitler moustache on the now infamous photo had been added after the photo was taken – though Bachmann did not mention this when the photo went viral. …

The picture of Bachmann went viral after it was published by a local newspaper, the Dresden Morgenpost. A Morgenpost reader discovered the photograph, along with what appeared to be a closed Facebook conversation between Bachmann and one of his Facebook contacts, in which he described immigrants as cattle, scumbags and trash. …

The controversy over the Hitler photo and Bachmann’s Facebook comments was seen as particularly damaging.

Bachmann’s resignation in January was followed by an exodus of leading members, apparently in an attempt to distance themselves from openly racist supporters. …

Bachmann, who carries convictions for drug possession, assault and burglary, has continued to speak at Pegida demos in Dresden. At last week’s event he imitated the 16th century church reformer Martin Luther and nailed 10 “theses” to the door of Dresden’s Kreuzkirche church. …

In the same Facebook post announcing Bachmann’s reinstatement, Pegida also welcomed its latest member – Tatjana Festerling, a former member of the eurosceptic Alternative for Germany party who attracted criticism last year for praising the Hooligans Against Salafists demo in Cologne. Bachmann said Festerling would almost certainly be the group’s new spokeswoman.

Pegida has attracted close to 160,000 likes on its Facebook page, which remains its only official web presence, but numbers at recent demos in Dresden have dwindled from a highpoint of 17,000 in January to around 2,000 in the last two weeks.
