Mein Kampf: the Good, Bad and Outright Ugly
Germans not anti-Semitic
I do not remember even having heard the word [Jew] at home during my father’s lifetime.
There were very few Jews in Linz. Although Vienna then had about two hundred thousand Jews, in the Jew I still saw only a man [who should not] be attacked because he had a different faith.
The French are not Germans
The big newspapers cultivated admiration for France. [We were made] ashamed of being a German when confronted by praise for ‘the great culture-nation’.
I discovered Jewish activities in the Press, in art, in literature and the theatre. The names of the authors [proved] nine-tenths of the smutty literature, tripe and banalities, had to be charged to [Jews].
Was there any shady undertaking, any form of foulness, in which at least one Jew did not participate? [The Press] praised the Jewish authors, criticism was reserved exclusively for the Germans.
Viennese life [I attributed to Jews included] prostitution [and] white slave traffic.
Jews are smart, maybe too smart
I found it difficult to match the dialectical perfidy of that race. The Jew uses language for the purpose of dissimulating his thought or at least veiling it.
The Jews have not the creative abilities [and] spirit of idealism [to be] be constructive, but always destructive.
Sailing under the flag of Religion [secures] tolerance which Aryans grant to different religious faiths. But Mosaic Law is nothing else than the doctrine of the preservation of the Jewish race.
Zionism proves Jews are not Germans
Any indecision was finally removed by Zionism. Its aim was to assert the national character of Judaism. There was not a question of Germans of a different religion, but rather an entirely different people.
When the Zionists try to make [the world believe that] the Jews will be satisfied by the establishment of a Jewish State in Palestine [they] dupe the simple-minded Gentile. They [do not intend] to live in it [but rather] to establish a central organization for international swindling and cheating.
[Many] openly and impudently proclaim their Jewish nationality while [others] hypocritically pretend that they are German, French or English.
Is it for this reason that they can be called the chosen people?
Wait a minute, wasn’t Karl Marx a Jew?
The life-work of the Jew, Karl Marx … CAPITAL became intelligible to me now.
Marxists created the economic weapon which the international Jew uses [to destroy] free and independent [nations], ruining their national industry and trade, enslaving nations to serve Jewish world-finance.
Jewish finance demands … the absolute economic destruction of Germany [and] its complete political enslavement … expanding Jewish power … subjugating the world to its rule. Bolshevism cannot exist unless it encompasses the earth.
Russia and Bolshevism
The present rulers of Russia are blood-stained criminals, the dregs of humanity [who] overran a great State, degraded and extirpated millions of educated people out of sheer blood-lust, and ruled with such a savage tyranny as was never known before.
Bolshevism robbed the Russian people of that intellectual class [who] created the Russian State [who were not the] Slav element [but rather] the Germanic element, in a race of inferior worth. Thus were many powerful Empires created all over the earth.
Only a simpleton could imagine Bolshevism can be tamed. The aspiration of Jewish people to become the despots of the world … is as natural as the Anglo-Saxon, to sit in the seats of rulership all over the earth.
Revelation and Resolution
I now realized that the Jews were the leaders of Social Democracy. My long inner struggle was at an end.
From being a soft-hearted cosmopolitan I became an out-and-out anti-Semite.
And so I believe to-day that my conduct is in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator. In standing guard against the Jew I am defending the handiwork of the Lord.
Now to convince the world
In 1918 there was nothing like an organized anti-Semitic feeling. I still remember the difficulties we encountered the moment we mentioned the Jew. We were either confronted with dumb-struck faces or else a lively and hefty antagonism. The efforts … seemed to be doomed to failure.
