It is a historical fact that NSDAP (formally its predecessor DAP, but it really makes no difference) was established by an occult organization – the Thule Society. It is also a fact that the latter supplied the DAP (and Adolf Hitler personally) with money, connections, key personnel (i.e. Alfred Rosenberg)… even a newspaper.
In short, with everything Hitler and his DAP needed to transform a miniscule political startup into a mighty force. And ultimately to obtain dictatorial powers in Germany.
There is also a strong (albeit circumstantial) evidence that sometime in the summer of 1919 Adolf Hitler underwent a genuine transfiguration (far more radical than just a transformation) from essentially a nobody to one of the most gifted, powerful and successful political entrepreneurs in modern history.
Most likely, this transfiguration was the result of the occult rituals performed by the Thule Society, although most likely they did it without Hitler’s knowledge (let alone consent). Although it is still possible (albeit highly unlikely) that he knowingly participated in these rituals and knew exactly what was going on.
Adolf Hitler implicitly recognized this vital contribution of the Thule Society (more precisely, by its members) by dedicating his “National-Socialist Bible” (Mein Kampf) to Dietrich Eckart – the key, albeit unofficial (a standard practice in occult organizations) member of the Thule Society.
Hence, relationship between Hitler and the Thule Society was plain and simple (and highly uncomfortable for the former). He was a tool – yes, but a tool – created by the latter for but one (albeit a vitally important) Mission.
To save the Western Civilization (and ultimately the whole human civilization, including, but obviously limited to, the Christian Church) from being invaded, conquered and destroyed by genuine agents of Satan – the Bolshevist hordes led by the “Red Tamerlane” Joseph Stalin. Which (unknown to the latter) would have in no time resulted in transformation of our world into a very literal Hell on Earth.
Although the Thule Society was not a Christian organization (in fact, it was rather hostile to Christianity), it was in reality a very powerful weapon of a very much Christian God (the Holy Trinity).
Unfortunately, by that time the Christian Church (Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, etc.) got so politically impotent – for many reasons – that it could not protect even itself, let alone the Christian Civilization. So the Christian God (who us the only God there is) had to “write straight with crooked lines” – and it is pretty hard to find lines more crooked than the Nazis. Or the Thule Society for that matter.
Or the Society of Vril as there are rumors that Thule was but the front organization for the latter. Which does make some sense as only the Society of Vril, due to its mastery of the enormously powerful energies by the same name, could have engineered such a profound transformation of Adolf Hitler. But this is, obviously, a pure speculation.
Whoever he might have been prior to that life-changing event (to put it mildly), sometime in the summer of 1919 Adolf Hitler was transformed into a highly gifted and subsequently extremely successful political entrepreneur.
And entrepreneurs (especially political entrepreneurs) almost by definition, never ever take orders from anyone – even from a highly influential occult society. Even the one (or maybe even especially from the one) they owe so much to.
Hence it is no surprise at all that almost immediately after obtaining the absolute power in the NSDAP, Adolf Hitler immediately severed all ties between his party and the Thule Society.
Which he believed to be but a tool of the Almighty Providence that he now could (or so it seemed) communicate with directly – without any intermediary (an individual or an organization).
The Thule Society was promptly dissolved afterwards as it had completed its Mission – found, created and empowered the Savior of the Western Civilization (and thus did not mind at all).
Hitler’s Führerstaat was a totalitarian state par excellence. Not only functionally, but also emotionally and spiritually. In other words, Adolf Hitler wanted (and almost achieved) a complete control over minds, hearts and souls of the citizens of Greater Germany.
Which automatically made him totally and completely intolerant of all “spiritual opposition”. While getting rid of the Christian opposition (i.e. the Christian Church) was impossible – it was too well-entrenched in the German society, the “occult opposition” was a different matter entirely. In other words, it was a very easy target for “Hitler’s enforcers” from the Gestapo.
Who did a predictably thorough job of cleansing the Third Reich from any “spiritual opposition” to Nazism – both real and perceived. Probably the hardest hit were the Freemasons (also an occult society of sorts). Just about all of them ended up in KL (as political prisoners) and it is estimated that at least 80,000 (and possibly up to 200,000) were outright murdered.
One by one, all other esoteric (i.e. occult) groups, societies and organizations were shut down (the legal basis for that was the specifically anti-Masonic legislation enacted in 1935). It surely did not help that just about all of these groups emulated the organizational structure of Freemasons (which the Nazis accused of being a part of a “Jewish conspiracy”, among other charges).
Völkisch groups, societies and organizations were not necessarily occult (although sometimes they were). Still, they suffered the same fate as their occult brethren (of sorts) – they were suppressed under the same anti-Masonic laws of 1935.
Astrology somehow survived for three more years (it was officially banned only in 1938); however, until the summer of 1938 the ban was not that thoroughly enforced. But when it was found out that Rudolf Hess was inspired by astrology to make his insane flight to Britain on May 10th, 1941… all Hell broke loose.
On June 9th, almost exactly one month after this ill-fated flight, RSHA chief Reinhard Heydrich (acting on Führer’s orders, of course), launched Aktion Hess aimed squarely at all kinds of occultists – astrologers, clairvoyants, faith healers, etc.
Hundreds of occultists were arrested by the Gestapo and (without any trial or any semblance of due process) sent to concentration camps. Most were released in a few months after making a written pledge to never ever engage in occult practices again, but some remained in KL until the end of the war when they were liberated by the Allies.
Hence the real relationship between Adolf Hitler and the occult was simple and straightforward. He did not believe in occult deities, rituals or practices (his beliefs were deist, not occult); he was a mystic, not an occultist and he viewed all occultists (individuals and organizations) as his spirituals, and, therefore, political rivals. So he gradually suppressed all of them.
Just about other top Nazis had the same attitude towards the occult. With only two exceptions – Rudolf Hess (who from the beginning of May of 1941 was out of the picture anyway)…
And the SS-Reichsführer Heinrich Himmler. However, it is a different story entirely.
