Mahler's articles are a soul-deadening mix of German Idealist philosophy, Hitlerian racial hatred, and the Darwinian nationalism espoused by Heinrich von Trietschke (imagine Mein Kampf if it had been written by Kant or Hegel).
While he is currently on trial for public incitement and has been convicted of publicly condoning criminal activities, Mahler has been able to keep his website from being banned by carefully parsing his words so that they do not violate Germany's laws against racial incitement, Nazi propaganda and Holocaust denial.
(last year he was fined several thousand euros for publicly supporting the 9/11 terrorist attacks)
For instance, Mahler will not explicitly deny the Holocaust, but will instead say that it was an insignificant or irrelevant event (or even a necessary event in the evolution of the historical Will).
no figure is more prominent than Berlin lawyer Horst Mahler. Although Mahler is hardly a household name in America, his past political activities should be familiar to many because in the 1960's he was one of the founders of the Baader-Meinhof terrorist group, more commonly known as the Red Army Faction.
In the recent resurgence of overt political activity by Germany's neo-Nazis,
While Mahler's political odyssey from left-wing terrorist to spokesman and strategist for latter-day Nazis is unique, what is even more remarkable is how many of his former associates are now important figures in the current German government, including Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder.
In August of 2000, Mahler applied for membership in the National Democratic Party (NPD), one of the most prominent German neo-Nazi political organizations. In his membership application, he attached an essay blaming all of Germany's problems on "Jewish financial capital" and "globalism," a financial conspiracy which Mahler claims is .ed up by Paul Spiegel, the chairman of the Central Council of Jews in Germany.
Ironically, the German government was embarrassed last year (2003) when its attempt to ban the NPD for violations of anti-Nazi laws was rejected by the courts because 30 of the top 200 officials of the party were discovered to be in the pay of the Verfassungsschutz, Germany's internal security service.
Mahler's writings are easily accessible on the Internet. He maintains a website (www.deutschesreich.de) and many of
his articles are available in English translation on the website of the Deutsches Kolleg (www.deutscheskolleg.org/english), a neo-Nazi think tank.
