“For purposes of their own, powerful special interest groups desperately seek to keep substantive discussion of the Holocaust taboo.”
“It is hard now to remember that the Nazi Holocaust was once a taboo subject. During the early years of the Cold War...(it) was seen as undermining the critical US-West German Alliance...airing the dirty laundry of the barely de-nazified West German elites and thereby playing into the hands of the Soviet Union...”
“Surely these are controversial conclusions; but if so, let the controversy rage.”
“a notorious journal of ‘racial history’ founded, and funded, by men who believe in the genetic superiority of the white race.”
“I don’t want to spend time with adults anymore, I want to go to students. They are superficial. They are empty vessels to be filled.”
”...a conservative pose...attacking disarmament, pornography and welfare abuse, promotes a conspiracy theory of history and government. Hidden forces are seen to control and manipulate events. The arch conspirators are the Jews.” (p67)
“The Israelis literally control our press all except...The American Free Press and the Barnes Review and a few other patriotic, independent publications...They control our congress...Any one of them is liable to rise up...and deliver a speech praising Jews...Zionists...blacks and Indians... Can you imagine them standing up and praising white Christians?”
“It’s real message is not that we should like or respect the Jews; only that we should try not to hate them.”
Part of the problem was how they saw themselves. In their contacts with president Roosevelt, Jewish leaders thought of themselves as weak or helpless. Take, for example, Rabbi Stephen Wise – leader of the American Zionist movement, the American Jewish Congress and the World Jewish Congress. He thought of himself as a servant of president Roosevelt. He referred to Roosevelt as “chief,” and he really meant it that way – Roosevelt as was the chief, and Wise was the servant. Wise was happy to just follow along with whatever Roosevelt wanted. He was content as long as FDR just remembered his name or gave him a few minutes of his time every once in a while.

“I realised North Americans were not interested in being educated. They want to be entertained. This book was for fun...it was a chance to get on radio and talk shows. For about 15 minutes of an hour program I’d talk about that esoteric stuff. Then I would...talk about...Jewish scientists in concentration camps, working on these secret weapons...that was my chance to talk about what I wanted to talk about.”
“Hitler as possessed by the archetype of the collective Aryan unconsciousness...could not help obeying the commands of an inner voice...Hitler is a spiritual vessel, a demi-divinity; even better, a myth...the Messiah of Germany who teaches the virtue of the sword. The voice he hears is the collective unconsciousness of his race.”
...not just the persistence, over decades, of Nazi ideology; but also the way it mutates and becomes ever stranger....
There's a quote, somewhere out there, from Hitler to the effect that the racial purity angle was just a lever- racial hatred is a very good way to mobilize a disenfranchised population. As in, he didn't really buy into all that hogwash, but found it very easy to exploit those who did.

No such quote exists but the Jews on the other hand did turn race into such an issue, hence Hitler's rise.

As I see it today, Hitler and Goebbels were in fact molded by the mob itself, guided by its yearnings and its daydreams. Of course, Goebbels and Hitler knew how to penetrate through to the instincts of their audiences; but in the deeper sense they derived their whole existence from these audiences. Certainly the masses roared to the beat set by Hitler's and Goebbels' baton; yet they were not the true conductors. The mob determined the theme. To compensate for misery, insecurity, unemployment, and hopelessness, this anonymous assemblage wallowed for hours at a time in obsessions, savagery and license. The personal unhappiness caused by the breakdown of the economy was replaced by a frenzy that demanded victims. By lashing out at their opponents and vilifying the Jews, they gave expression and direction to fierce primal passions.
