The shocking climax of the infamous 1940 Nazi documentary film entitled “The Eternal Jew” stunningly reveals a strong green rationalization based on animal rights for the looming destruction of the Jews. According to Nazi ideology, the so-called “eternal Jew” is the transcendent Jew who tries to live above Nature through economics and capitalism in the west, or through politics and communism in the east.
In Mein Kampf, Hitler specifically called this process the pacification of Nature. According to Hitler, the Jews try to pacify or tame Nature through international commerce and capitalism on the one hand, or by stressing universal political values like communistic equality on the other hand, both of which rebel against the stern rigid laws of Nature which cannot be overcome. German zoologist Ernst Haeckel, the racist Darwinist who coined the term ‘ecology’ in 1866, posited that the Jewish transcendent view of man over nature made them resistant to evolutionary biological change, and hence the Jews had become a lesser race. While Hitler eschewed some of Haeckel’s political views, he heartily agreed with this particular belief.
To the Nazis, the Jews had become a wandering and threatening invasive species because of their steadfastness to universal transcendent values in opposition to the Social Darwinian evolutionary laws of Nature. They were ‘eternal’ vagabonds, uprooted from Nature and destructive to local national populations with alien economic practices and politics. Hence, Nazi ideologues complained both about the “un-German spirit of commerce” and the “liberal-Marxist rationalism” that alienated German culture from Nature-all as a crisis instigated by the Jews. In fact, the Nazis actually believed that the sick modern world of both international capitalism and communism, led by Jews and spread by Christianity, was entirely disobedient to Nature.
While the west largely became Judaized through Capitalism, it did not go unnoticed by the Nazis that its twin sister, the liberal social gospel, coincided with the rise of Jewish Marxism. Both of these corrupting influences had since become an epidemic that was threatening the very survival of the German Aryan blood, the true original natives of Europe. Hitler actually dreaded the Jewish forces of anti-Nature. In his own mind, he was defending German Aryan culture against the weakness of western civilization brought on by the autonomous Judeo-Christian beliefs and practices over the natural world.
Thus, what later became known as the Final Solution was in fact an eco-imperial plan rooted in racist biology with ecological predilections. That this eco-imperial plan would far exceed the evils of the western powers in their drive to colonial expansionism has of course gone on largely unnoticed. However, the Final Solution was specifically contemplated by Hitler to resolve this Jewish “existential” threat. In short, the revenge of Nature against the Jews was to be carried out by the Nazis, who thought themselves to be the Master Race precisely because they deemed themselves the most ‘natural’ or ‘authentic,’ i.e., the most in tune with Nature’s pantheistic ways-all of which was largely defined by Ernst Haeckel’s evolutionary Social Darwinism called Monism.
The Green Nazis
Many Nazis, including the Fuhrer himself, believed that the industrial age along with its emphasis upon commercialism, city life, international trade and finance were corrupting the biological substance of the German people. The Nazis thus had an extreme literal reading of Nature which would spell absolute disaster for the Jews in particular precisely because they allegedly lived by a false, “eternal,” or transcendent ethos, far above the natural world and her “scientific” evolutionary natural laws of racism.
Seen in this light through a green prism, the Nazi propaganda film “The Eternal Jew” becomes much more intelligible. The hour-long documentary keeps a steady pace throughout going from one anti-Semitic line of reasoning to the next. The Jews do not possess romantic countryside hard working rural values. Nor do they produce anything of real value. All they do is buy and sell goods in markets produced by the native populations which artificially places them on top of the financial chain. Jews are much more at home bartering and selling on dirty city streets than they are in performing hardy and healthy outdoor labor tasks. Their capitalistic international trade is comparable to a massive infestation of rats characterized like invasive species overwhelming Germany and spreading disease everywhere they go.
International communistic values are also negatively explored. Here the Nazis eschew the universalism and equality that the Marxists falsely emphasize because of its Jewish “eternal” roots. Such unnatural ideas invariably lead to class warfare which wears down the health of the nation. The propaganda film also strongly expresses the Nazi diatribe against Jewish arts and entertainment which has allegedly poisoned the public with international cosmopolitan values.
However, the real shocker is carefully and purposefully placed at the end of the film where the Nazis spend an inordinate amount of time showing the Jewish kosher ritual slaughter of cows and sheep. The Nazis even warn the viewers beforehand about the traumatic forthcoming scenes. They then graphically show the kosher ritual slaughter. The Nazis show three different cows in three different settings being slaughtered in this way. Neither do they fail to mention that the Jewish Mosaic Law “has no love or respect for animals in the Germanic sense.”
Perhaps even more surprising is that after showing all this blood and gore “cruelty” against animals, the Nazi narrator finally brings up the Fuhrer for the first time in the film. The narrator then lauds Hitler’s effort to bring to an end such “cruel” practices in Germany because of his animal rights or protection laws, which was one of the first anti-Semitic political issues strongly emphasized by the Nazis as early as April of 1933. This praise for Hitler’s outstanding green laws then shades into his famous speech given in 1939 given before a huge crowd of Nazis. Here, Hitler virtually lets everyone present know that he is about to send the Jews into hell on earth as he will insidiously hold them personally responsible if they initiate another global war with their international finances. At this, Hitler receives a rousing ovation.
That the Jews were soon to be corralled in cattle cars and sent to concentration camps set up like stockyards, and then ultimately sacrificed to death en masse for their ‘unnatural’ ways, is thus not so curious, no matter how gruesome it all was. The Nazi ‘punishment’ of treating the Jews like stock animals headed for the slaughterhouse matched their ‘crime’ of animal cruelty-the very charge that “The Eternal Jew” singles out as the most heinous of all. Even worse is that the Nazis also broke their own highly regulated animal transport protection regulations when they stuffed Jews like sardines in train cars off to meet their appointed doom. This was not an oversight. Even more nightmarish is that many Jews would also soon be treated like experimental animals. This was not an oversight either.
Moreover, had it not been for Hitler’s personal doctor, the Nazi Animal Protection laws would have forbidden the practice of vivisection on experimental animals altogether. Hitler’s doctor finally talked him out of calling for such a draconian measure as this would greatly hamper scientific research. The Jews however, were purposefully treated like stock and experimental animals by design-with most headed for the sacrificial slaughterhouse on the Eastern Front.
Historians have either overlooked or forgotten that sweeping Nazi environmental laws, all signed by Hitler and considered to be his pet projects, preceded the racially charged Nuremberg Laws, reflecting the fact that Nazi racism was rooted in ecology. By the summer of 1935, right before the Nuremberg laws were set up, Nazi Germany was by far the greenest regime on the planet. The Animal Protection laws were followed up by a strong hunting law for Hermann Goering in 1934. In 1935, Hitler also signed the Reich Nature Protection Act, the high water mark for Nazi environmentalism. Here is seen the birth of environmental permits, environmental impact statements and environmental totalitarianism.
The Reich Nature Protection Act even allowed the expropriation of private property without compensation for the sake of the environment. Sustainable forestry practices called Dauerwald, which ironically means “eternal” forest, were also introduced at the federal level.
The change was so remarkable that Aldo Leopold, the famous environmentalist who left America with his “Think like a Mountain” deep ecology legacy long before Rachel Carson, paid Nazi Germany a visit in 1935. While very critical of past German conservation efforts, he lauded the new environmental direction the Nazis were taking. That Leopold would leave the Teddy Roosevelt/Gifford Pinchot style of American utilitarian form of environmental conservationism for deep ecology in the same year is also a curious fact of history that receives little attention. Another disquieting element of Leopold was his criticism of America’s “Abrahamic” concept of the land.
While Adolf Hitler’s personal commitment to green ideas was somewhat inconsistent and sporadic with regard to environmental preservation practices and the rural agrarian SS “blood and soil” radicalism of Heinrich Himmler and Richard Walther Darre, something which many environmental historians have waxed long and hard on to historically disassociate the Fuhrer from their movement as much as possible, he was much more green with regard to vegetarianism, but especially green with regard to animal rights, both of which he adopted into his life because of the great influence that Richard Wagner had over him.
Richard Wagner of course was the famous opera composer who provided the musical background to the Nazis. His anti-Semitism is specifically quoted in “The Eternal Jew.” Less known however is that Wagner was also a strong vegan who preached a racist socialism based on vegetarianism that would cleanse Germany from the corrupting influence of the Jews. Along these radical green lines is that both Hitler and Himmler apparently had plans to make Germany vegan after the war.
It must neither be forgotten that Wagner was also an ardent student of Arthur Schopenhauer, the great German animal rights guru of the 1800’s. Wagner wholeheartedly adopted Schopenhauer’s thesis that the barbaric treatment of animals in Europe was squarely placed on the shoulders of Judaism. Shockingly, Schopenhauer proclaimed a prophecy which was virtually fulfilled by the Nazis almost a century later: “we owe the animal not mercy but justice, and the debt often remains unpaid in Europe, the continent that is permeated with Foeter Judaicus…It is obviously high time in Europe that Jewish views on nature were brought to an end…the unconscionable treatment of the animal world must, on account of its immorality, be expelled from Europe.”
Saving Animals, Killing Humans
For Schopenhauer, the Foeter Judaicus, which means “the odor of the Jews,” was animal cruelty. Hitler, who loved Schopenhauer, would make sure that his romantic environmental dream would come true in the green sacrificial offering that was the Holocaust where concentration camps, organic farms and zoos for the SS, decorated with well-situated symbolic trees, all shockingly came together in the most ignominious act of human history. In retrospect, that the green pagan mystic Heinrich Himmler was put in charge of this human sacrificial operation is hardly surprising.
The beastly nature of the holocaust is best understood through the barbaric naturism of the Nazis, rooted in a racially charged ecology that would not be undone until all the smoke from the great battlefields and gas chambers of World War II was cleared. The figurative Foeter Judaicus of animal cruelty was replaced with the literal sickening stench of burning and rotting corpses that filled the European theater from east to west. Here is seen the ultimate social justice of the early German greens leveled against the Judeo-Christian civilization which had dared to uproot the ancient Greco-Roman world from its natural moorings.
The Holocaust was in fact a ghastly human sacrifice offered for romantic green purposes that was designed to help Europe return back to its Greco-Roman roots, with Nazi Germany leading the way. While many have recently been arguing back and forth about the true meaning of fascism, they have largely ignored Hitler’s own definition.
On July 5th, 1941, with the Wehrmacht blazing across the Russian steppe, Hitler announced that “the fascist movement is a spontaneous return to the traditions of ancient Rome.” What this meant specifically for Hitler was that the infection of the ‘eternal’ or anti-natural Judeo-Christian worldview, which had sickened all of Europe even as far as the gates of Moscow, must be eliminated, together with many of its adherents, and most especially the Jew who was viewed as the foundation stone of the whole rotten edifice. However, that the Master Race, assumed to be the most naturally ‘authentic,’ would soon find itself at the merciless wrath of one of the most brutal winters of the 20th century, was a moment of great poetic justice so great that the Fuhrer never recovered from it. The millenarian hubris of building an Aryan ‘green’ Rome literally froze to death on the white vastness of the foreboding Russian front.
MEDIA’S PRO-ABORTION BIAS ON DISPLAY
Dennis Howard of the Movement for a Better America told EWTN television network on the day of the March for Life in Washington, D.C. that legalized abortion is the equivalent of 260 Haiti disasters on American soil. The death toll from abortion in the U.S. is over 52 million.
One of the differences is that Haiti is the result of a natural disaster. Abortion is man-made.
Another difference is that we search for the victims in Haiti and rush assistance to those injured from the earthquake. The victims of abortion are not worthy of sympathy or attention because they are the product of a “woman’s right to choose.”
This year’s March for Life featured a line of women carrying signs that said, “I regret my abortion.” They represented the “Silent No More” awareness campaign, where their testimonies about having abortions are available.
If you aren’t accustomed to hearing abortion described in the terms of genocide, then you have either (1) never been to a March for Life or (2) not bothered to visit the website of the abortion-related Genocide Awareness Project at http://www.abortionno.org/gap.
The Graphic Truth
As the pro-lifers marched toward the Supreme Court, they passed by the gigantic display of pictures from the Genocide Awareness Project, some of them of aborted babies. Many of the people new to the march were transfixed by the billboard-style images of bloody and dismembered bodies. They stared in disbelief.
As shocking as the photos are, the figures are almost as startling. In the interview with EWTN correspondent Damon Owens, Dennis Howard described the financial impact of abortion through the depletion of human resources. The loss of over 52 million people has meant a loss of $38.5 trillion in GDP.
It’s almost as if a nuclear war had occurred on U.S. soil, he said. The result will be increased financial pressure and higher taxes on those under 40 years of age to pay for government, including the costs associated with those getting old.
Of course, if ObamaCare takes effect, their lives may be cut short, too.
Young People Are Pro-life
Robert McCartney of the Washington Post went to the March for Life and discovered that young people are on the side of life. Though “pro-choice” himself, he reported that “…I was especially struck by the large number of young people among the tens of thousands at the march. It suggests that the battle over abortion will endure for a long time to come.” He noted that some of them carried “We are the pro-life generation” placards.
McCartney implied that many young people were raised Catholic and programmed to oppose abortion. Indeed, some may be pro-life because their parents are pro-life. But some may be pro-life by virtue of the fact that they are alive and grateful for it.
McCartney’s point about Catholic involvement was nevertheless true. There was a heavy Catholic presence. But some marchers let the Bishops know that they are not satisfied with the church’s treatment of the issue. “Excommunicate all Catholic pro-abortion politicians” proclaimed one sign. “Bishops: Enforce Canon 915” said another. Section 915 of the Code of Canon Law requires the denial of Holy Communion to those engaging in “grave sin,” interpreted by traditional Catholics as support for abortion.
A large banner was addressed to the president of the University of Notre Dame and proclaimed, “Father Jenkins: Free the Notre Dame 88.” The “88” are those who ventured on to Notre Dame’s campus to protest President Obama’s commencement speech and receipt of an honorary “Doctor of Laws” degree and were arrested and hauled off to jail. Jenkins is being urged to drop the charges against them.
Earlier in the day, at the American Life League conference, Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., gave a pro-life presentation and urged people to watch two films, The trailer for one, available at http://www.maafa21.com, is about black genocide. “How can we keep the dream alive if we murder the children?” she asked. The other, “Bloodmoney,” is about the abortion business. The trailer can be viewed at http://www.bloodmoneyfilm.com
Former New York Times reporter Alex Jones, author of the new book, Losing the News, admits, “Reporters as a group tend to be pro-choice, and pro-life advocates have long complained that these biases have skewed the way the story is reported.” Jones, admittedly pro-choice himself, nevertheless agrees with the pro-lifers, and cites coverage of partial birth abortion. This is a particularly hideous procedure in which the head is punctured so that the child can be removed from the womb dead. Jones notes that the procedure was not rare, as the media had claimed.
