The Treaty of Versailles was a crime [an armed robbery, to be more precise].
My feeling as a Christian points me to my lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded only by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were [Pharisees, not Jews] and summoned men to the fight against them and who, God’s truth! was greatest not as sufferer but as fighter.
In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and of lenders.
How terrific was His fight for the world against the Jewish poison [not really – His fight was different, although He did fight the Pharisees – Jewish leaders]. Today, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before – the fact that it was for this that He had to shed His blood upon the Cross.
As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice. And as a man I have the duty to see to it that human society does not suffer the same catastrophic collapse as did the civilization of the ancient world some two thousand years ago – a civilization which was driven to its ruin through this same Jewish people [this collapse existed only in his imagination – 2000 years ago no such thing happened].
For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people
And when I look on my people I see it work and work and toil and labor, and at the end of the week it has only for its wage wretchedness and misery. When I go out in the morning and see these men standing in their queues and look into their pinched faces, then I believe I would be no Christian, but a very devil, if I felt no pity for them, if I did not, as did our Lord two thousand years ago, turn against those by whom today this poor people is plundered and exploited.
Often there are no adequate economic grounds for a strike, but there are always political grounds and plenty of them.
The Jews are a people of robbers . The Jew has never founded any civilization [not true – Jewish civilization was one of the most advanced], though he has destroyed civilizations by the hundred [not true either]. He possesses nothing of his own creation to which he can point [not true at all].
In the last resort it was the Aryan and the Aryan alone who could form States and could set them on their path to future greatness.
The whole of present-day Russia has nothing to show beyond a ruined civilization, a colony ripe for development through alien capital, and even this capital in order to supply resources in labor for its practical work must introduce Aryan intellects
It might be possible that from Germany the light should come which is destined to light both Germany and the world to their salvation.
Every truly national idea is in the last resort social, i.e., he who is prepared so completely to adopt the cause of his people that he really knows no higher ideal than the prosperity of this – his own – people, he who has so taken to heart the meaning of our great song ‘Deutschland, Deutschland uber alles,’ that nothing in this world stands for him higher than this Germany, people and land, land and people, he is a Socialist!
And he who in this people sympathizes with the poorest of its citizens, who in this people sees in every individual a valuable member of the whole community, and who recognizes that this community can flourish only when it is formed not of rulers and oppressed but when all according to their capacities fulfill their duty to their Fatherland and the community of the people and are valued accordingly, he who seeks to preserve the native vigor, the strength, and the youthful energy of the millions of working men, and who above all is concerned that our precious possession, our youth, should not before its time be used up in unhealthy harmful work – he is not merely a Socialist, but he is also National in the highest sense of that word.
The destinies of peoples could be determined neither through majority decisions nor through treaties, but only through blood and iron. (c) Bismarck
For what Germany needs today, what Germany longs for ardently, is a symbol of power, and strength [and the Nazis provided exactly such a symbol – the swastika].
The Storm Divisions have been formed for our protection, for your protection, and at the same time not merely for the protection of the Movement, but for the protection of a Germany that is to be.
He who today is leader must be an idealist, if only for the reason that he leads those against whom it would seem that everything has conspired.
Our Movement is not sustained by money or the lust for gold, but only by our love for the people.
