I am talking about the ‘Jewish evacuation’; the extermination of the Jewish people. It is one of those things that is easily said. ‘The Jewish people is being exterminated,’ every Party member will tell you. ‘Perfectly clear, it’s part of our plans, we’re eliminating the Jews, exterminating them, ha! — a small matter.’ And then along they all come, all the 80 million upright Germans, and each one has a decent Jew. They say: ‘All the others are swine, but here is a first-class Jew. And none of them has seen it, has endured it. Most of you will know what it means when 100 bodies lie together, when there are 500, or when there are 1,000. And to have seen this through, and — with the exception of human weakness — to have remained decent, has made us hard and is a page of glory never mentioned and never to be mentioned.

Heinrich Himmler, Reichsführer-SS
Speech before SS officers at Posen
October 1944

💀

There was an attempt, within living memory, to exterminate the Jewish people. Those who are unsure of this fact are invited to listen to Heinrich Himmler’s Posen speech, which is the only surviving audible recording of a top Nazi official admitting the whole thing. If anyone doubts the Holocaust was real, don’t take it from me, listen to Himmler’s glorification of mass murder yourself.

Here is a link to Himmler’s speech;

As long as the antisemites continue to promote their lies, I will write about the murderous consequences of those lies. The antisemite and the communist have a compulsive need to hate somebody. They will falsely accuse anyone of anything. Below is an example of what the obsessive Andy Sloan posted about me on Twitter:

To cry “traitor” is a call for blood.

Someone who creates a meme like this, about someone like me, is capable of other excesses. God only knows what those excesses might be. Unbalanced rhetoric of this kind belongs to paranoia, to hearing voices, and other mental disturbances. Besides being utterly mad, it is an attempt to destroy another man’s reputation. As such, it is a form of murder. Rebecca Hamilton has written an essay “Slander is Murder with Words,” — https://www.patheos.com/blogs/publiccatholic/2013/10/slander-is-murder-with-words-2/

….slander is a knife with no handle. It is murder with words, and it does wound the person who is slandered. But it cuts the the slanderer himself even more deeply. There is no explanation which justifies deliberate slander of another person. It is mean and cruel to the core. It also begs the question of whatever reasoning drives the anger behind it.

This takes us to the alleged “religious” fervor behind Andy and other antisemite slanderers. One cannot trust anything they say. Their judgments are bad, their sources dubious, their reasoning half-baked. They don’t know how to properly interpret facts. You add to this the headache of various religious controversies, which people of this kind have latched onto — and where do you end up? In a world of madmen shooting at one another from bell towers.

I do not want to argue theology on this website because such arguments end up dividing Christians, and dividing Americans. This is not what we need, and it is not spiritually uplifting. It is my long-held opinion that theological dogmatizing or immanentizing is wicked. We have enough things to fight over in this world without making it about God; especially as God is mysterious and beyond the understanding of mortals.

Of course, there are blockheads who want to use God’s name in support of their hatreds, political projects and dogmas. Instead of seeing themselves as servants, they attempt to turn the tables on God, making Him into their servant. Such men fill pulpits across the country, and there is no need to name names. God made man in His image, and persons of this kind have been trying to return the favor ever since. Anyone who tries to introduce political antisemitism through the back door of religion is a dangerous fraud.

If we want to preserve free speech, especially when it is embattled, we need to be careful about stoking the fires of enmity. There are those who would accuse me of inciting Americans against Russia and China; but that is not what I do. My writings are free of anti-Russian and anti-Chinese bigotry. The problem is not the Russian or Chinese people. The problem is the totalitarian rulers of those countries who, it can be shown, are preparing for war against the United States. To point out a real, objective, military threat to the West is not the same as fueling old ethnic feuds or religious controversies. My work is not about hate. It is about national security. I am concerned about the survival of West. In relation to this, the antisemites have stupidly misidentified civilization’s main enemy. This activity not only threatens the Jewish people. Their intellectual incompetence and “scholarly” misinterpretations threaten us with the recurrence of a calamity that already happened.

  1. Jeff, thanks for taking a stand on this issue. I’m not Jewish, but I can tell you that there is no one as thoughtful and decent as Dennis Prager, who is. There are many more like him.

    Let’s leave anti-Semitism to the Left; it’s a perfect example of their playbook of demeaning and dividing groups in order to attain power.

    We conservatives should be laser-focused on promoting the God-given dignity of all men (and women) and their quest for liberty and decency.
