Background to Treason: A Brief History of U.S. Policy in the Middle East
|Part 4: Teaching Americans to Hate
and Kill the Jews' Enemies
Americans who did not actually live through the Second World War cannot imagine the pervasive atmosphere of hatred against Germans which the Jews managed to generate with their war propaganda. It began in 1933 -- more than eight years before Pearl Harbor -- with the aim of preparing the American people emotionally to wage war against Germany; it gained venom during the war years, inciting Americans to spare nothing in their effort to kill Germans; and it continued after the war, urging that no mercy be shown to the conquered.
Indeed, it continues to this day, in the never-ending stream of new "Holocaust" films and television features, as well as in the reruns of old war films. Nearly four decades after the end of the war the average American -- especially one who spends much time before a television receiver -- still has a mental image of Germans as arrogant, cruel, treacherous, and brutal -- in a weak, contemptible sort of way, of course. While the Japanese have been rehabilitated in the controlled media, the Germans have not, because the latter, unlike the former, dared to raise their hands against the Jews.
During and immediately before the war, the anti-German propaganda was much more intense, vicious, and direct than it is now, however. A good example is a book by Theodore N. Kaufman, Germany Must Perish, which was widely distributed in the United States in the early 1940's.  It set the tone by urging that the United States not only go to war against Germany but adopt the national goal of exterminating the entire German people, down to the last man, woman, and child. It was published when Germany and the United States were still at peace, although to the author that is a mere technicality, and he writes as though the two nations were already locked in a death struggle. He begins:
Today's war is not a war against Adolf Hitler.Kaufman then goes on to rationalize his argument and to convince readers that he is both a reasonable and a compassionate man. He even allows that there may be a few decent Germans among the wicked majority. But, he cautions, the German bloodlust comes "from the very depths of the German national soul," and so even if we spare only innocent Germans from the current generation, they will inevitably give birth to a new generation of wicked Germans, who will unleash another murderous war on the world, and millions of innocent non-Germans will perish. Is it not those millions who deserve our sympathy, rather than a few Germans?
Kaufman gives his readers a few chapters of spurious German history sprinkled with doctored quotes from Friedrich Nietzsche and Heinrich von Treitschke to demonstrate the hopeless depravity of the Germans down through the ages and to prove that a single thought has always preoccupied the German mind: "to rule the world, or, failing that, to annihilate it! And so long as the German nation exists it intends, in one form or another, now or later, to bring about just such a catastrophe."
He concludes, with feigned reluctance, that the only way to make the world safe is to kill all of the Germans. He states this conclusion, in different words, 30 or 40 times throughout the book, just so the densest goyische reader will get the message: "... [T]he goal of world-dominion must be removed from the reach of the German and the only way to accomplish that is to remove the German from the world!" "They are but beasts; they must be dealt with as such." "There remains then but one mode of ridding the world forever of Germanism -- and that is to stem the source from which issue those war-lusted souls, by preventing the people of Germany from ever again reproducing their kind." And so on.
Every few pages, between bouts of shrieking for the American goyim to go forth and slaughter the German goyim, this hate-crazed Jew stops jumping up and down and goes into a hand-wringing act, becoming for a moment a tender-hearted Jew whose basic goodness and humanitarianism rebel at the necessity of genocide. But only for a moment. It is a crude and transparent act, but not much cruder or more transparent than the television propaganda of the present.
Kaufman winds up his book with a few calculations. He figures that all the German soldiers who have not been killed in the fighting before their government surrenders unconditionally can be sterilized in less than a month by a team of 20,000 surgeons, each of whom will perform an average of 25 sterilizations per day. The civilian population can then be dealt with in a more leisurely manner, over a period of several months.
After everyone, male and female, has been sterilized, the publication of all printed materials in the German language will be forbidden; the Germans will then be divided up into slave-labor battalions and marched off to work for the democratic and communist victors, where they will be compelled to learn and use the language of their new masters; German land will be portioned out to the various Allies (Kaufman even provides a map to show who will get what); and, with a "normal death rate of 2 per cent per annum, German life will diminish at the rate of 1,500,000 yearly. Accordingly in the span of two generations that which cost millions of lives and centuries of useless effort, namely, the elimination of Germanism and its carriers, will have been an accomplished fact."
And what about those Americans who do not share his enthusiasm for launching a genocidal crusade against the Germans? There were a number of such people in 1941, among them aviation hero Charles Lindbergh, who was traveling around the country and speaking on behalf of the America First Committee, doing his best to counter the poisonous propaganda of Kaufman and the other Jews.
Kaufman denounces these people as "spineless jellyfish" and "fifth columnists, who must, in war time, be summarily dispatched."
Kaufman's bloodthirsty ravings have been worth quoting, because they are so explicit in their murderousness. Most Jewish propagandists were not as mathematically detailed in their call for the extermination of the Germans, but their writing dripped with the same Semitic hatred. Ben Hecht was a Hollywood scriptwriter, one of the most successful of his tribe . He had much more than the customary Jewish cleverness with words; he could even be subtle. But in 1944 Hecht wrote a book  about Germans, in which he said:
[A] cancer flourishes in the body of the world and in its mind and soul and ... the cancerous thing is Germany, Germanism, and Germans....And so on, for 276 hate-filled, self-righteous pages -- except that between his spells or commentary on the Germans' fat necks, watery eyes, and penchant for murdering their betters, Hecht uses his script-writer's imagination to work up various "Holocaust" scenarios. Here is an example:
The German governor of Warsaw was decorated and promoted to a general for thinking up the idea of the lime kiln freight cars. Each freight care was equipped with enough lime to eat up 200 Jews. By the time the freight cars arrived at the burial ditches, twenty thousand Jews were dead in them. In addition to being inexpensive and killing Jews, lime possessed another property than endeared it to the Germans discussing these matters at their desks. Lime hurt Jews more than bullets or even fire. It ate their faces off and removed their bellies slowly. Seven pages later Hecht reports that 7,000 Jews were murdered by Germans by being made to lie down on a road so that they could be "run over by heavy motor lorries (this money-saving device was thought up by a German general in Romania)."
Like Kaufman, Hecht expresses his conviction
that the only way for the world to be safe is for there to be no Germans
in it. The dust jacket of his book has a little jingle on it which he wrote,
urging his goyische readers to "Buy War Bonds," so that just such
a German-free world can be brought about by means of TNT and phosphorus.
