Quite often i find uninformed bloggers, patriotic Americans, and the mainstream media drawing sensationalist parallels between the political climate of Hitler’s Germany and that of the United States at present. 1 2 3 Though there are disturbing similarities, the context in which those policies are rooted could not be more at odds; while Nazi Germany was a police-state dictatorship, similar to what the U.S. is descending toward today 4 5 6, it is quite clear that the ideology driving the politics in Hitler’s Germany was intended to avoid the same sort of tyranny, corruption and moral erosion which the people of the U.S. and elsewhere find themselves battling today.
A popular example of one such parallel asks us to compare gun control laws in the U.S. with those of Nazi Germany. Here we are often led to believe that Hitler disarmed all German citizens, resulting in the slaughter of six million Jews on his way toward world domination. Those who have researched German’s role in World War II beyond the history that our mainstream institutions have provided however, are likely to reach very different conclusions regarding Hitler 1, the Jewish holocaust 2, and our subject of focus here: the gun control laws in Hitler’s Germany.
Many are aware of the depth to which corruption is embedded in all levels of government and how our mainstream media falsifies, minimizes or simply omits many subjects of importance. 1 2 We know that officials cannot be blindly trusted and that our history books do not always portray an accurate account of historical events, yet many still subscribe without question to the official narrative regarding Germany’s role in the war, never bothering to question whether those that wrote the history may have had an agenda that would best be served by altering it.
In order to paint an accurate picture of who was disarmed and why, i think it is necessary to briefly examine the circumstances behind Hitler’s rise to power. While it is obvious that racism played a role regarding the treatment of the Jews in Germany, there is a great deal more to the story than what is typically revealed. To begin, we must put into context the mindset of not only the German people during the 1920’s, but the mindset in general throughout the developed world, a time during which African Americans were still being lynched in the United States. 1
Prior to World War II and before Hitler rose to power, the Jews had been expelled from approximately 67 countries including Austria, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Portugal, Prague, Russia, Spain, Switzerland and the Ukraine, sometimes more than once by a single country, and persecuted in other forms in as many more according to Jewish history. 1 Rather than automatically attributing the lengthy historical persecution of the Jews to antisemitism as many Jewish organizations would have us do, one might want to consider why no one wanted the Jews. The expulsion of the Jews by a laundry list of countries was obviously not unique to Germany, nor was the internment of subversives and undesirables which had occurred in many countries both before and during the war. 2 3 4 5 The United States government had forced Japanese, Italian and German-Americans into concentration camps during the this period, subjecting some detainees to forced labor in at least one case. 6 7 8 9
The Treaty of Versailles after World War I, which erroneously laid the blame for the war entirely upon Germany, was heavily influenced by powerful Jewish businessmen and politicians, including Louis Rothschild, Phillip Sassoon, Bernard Baruch, Stephen Wise, Paul Warburg (former Chairman of the Federal Reserve) and his brother Max Warburg. 1 The treaty succeed not only in robbing the German people of their dignity, but also in gutting her financially and militarily and dividing large portions of her land amongst the victors. 1 2 The erosion of German values and corruption of its political system continued as Jewish politicians, lawyers and businessmen took up residence in Germany where they undermining the government and spread Marxist propaganda through the radio and print networks under their influence. 3 German culture and morals were further assaulted by the pornography that came with the Jews, who were prominent in the industry then as they are today. 4 5 6 7 8 9
I can think of no better quote to summarize the reason for Hitler’s rise to power than that spoken by Ernst Zündel during a 1996 interview by an Israeli journalist in which he stated that “Hitler was an organic outgrowth to Jewish behavior“. 1 2 Although i have not thoroughly researched the circumstances under which the Jews had been expelled and persecuted in hundreds of countries prior to World War II, it appears their behavior was a key factor in many instances. Certainly many of us today can clearly see the result of Jewish-Zionist behavior in Palestine 3 4 as well as the heavy handed and disproportionate influence they wield in the worlds most powerful institutions, including the news media, entertainment, government, politics and finance. 5 6 7 8 9 10 Hitler had a solid insight regarding the effects the Jews and their central banks had upon German culture, politics and economics. 11
At this point i think it is important to state that it is not my intention to imply that the Jewish people as a whole are responsible for all the worlds problems, however when one considers the impact that portions of Jewish culture and ideology has, and continues to have upon various nation states, i think it is abundantly clear that this influence is responsible for a significant number of the most important problems we face. Ultimately however, i think we only have ourselves to blame; we, the “99%”, Jewish or otherwise, who make it possible for the “1%” to maintain power, enslave us with their monetary systems, brainwash us with their media, and send us to fight and die in lucrative wars that are engineered and financed by international bankers for reasons which seem to consist of little more than personal greed and geopolitical control. The Jewish people as a whole are also victims of these self-serving elitists, as well as any nation which has succumbed to the international bankers. Hitler was aware of the threat that international Jewry posed and planned to eliminate it by expelling the Jewish business cartels from Germany. In a broadcast to the German people in 1941, he stated, in part:
This conspiracy of democratic Jews and Free Masons dragged Europe into war two years ago. Arms had to decide.
Since then a struggle has been taking place between truth and lies and, as always, this war will end in the victory for truth. In other words, whatever lies British propaganda, international world Jewry and its democratic accomplices may concoct they will not change historical facts. And it is a historical fact that for two years now Germany has been defeating one opponent after another.
I did not want it. Immediately after the first conflict I again held out my hand. I have been a soldier myself and I know how difficult it is to win a victory.
My hand was rejected. And since then we have seen that each peace offer was immediately exploited by the warmonger Churchill and his confreres so that they could say it was proof of our weakness.
In March of 1933, less than a month after Hitler was appointed chancellor and prior to his order to boycott Jewish businesses and Kristallnacht, international Jewry declared economic war upon Germany in the form of a world-wide call to boycott German businesses. The achieved goal was the complete economic destruction of the country. 1 2 3 This declaration of war occurred well before the German government began restricting the rights of Germany’s Jews.
Upon economic warfare having been declared by world Jewry, the German government had the legal right, according to international law, to confiscate the arms of a self-established enemy residing within its borders, however this confiscation of firearms would not take place for another five years when, in November of 1938, Herschel Grynszpan, a Polish Jew, assassinated Ernst vom Rath, a German diplomat. 4 5 Thus the numerous claims that all Germans were disarmed, or that Jews were illegally disarmed, are factually incorrect. While the somewhat restrictive gun control law from 1928 was left in place for the first five years after Hitler was appointed chancellor, the revised firearms law enacted by Hitler’s government in 1938 actually removed or relaxed many restrictions regarding firearm ownership. Following is a summary of the gun control laws in Germany by date: 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13
- 1919: Gun ownership is restricted to persons possessing a weapon or hunting license. Arrangements are made by the allies to confiscate all privately owned firearms under the threat of sanctions.
- 1920: The German population is to be disarmed with severe penalties for violates.
- 1927: Production of handguns with a barrel length of 98mm or greater and a bore of 8mm or larger is banned.
- 1928: The general prohibition on the acquisition of firearms is lifted, however strict provisions are made requiring separate permits to own, sell, carry and manufacture firearms and ammunition. A license is still required to own long guns.
- 1931: Due to the rising political crises, the acquisition of firearms and ammunition is subject to further restrictions.
- 1933: Nazis seize power.
- 1938: A weapon permit or hunting license is required for handguns only, the permit restriction for long guns is removed. The acquisition and transfer of rifles and shotguns, as well as the possession of ammunition is deregulated. The age limit for purchasing firearms is lowered from 20 to 18. Firearms permits are valid for three years instead of one. Holders of annual hunting permits, government workers and NSDAP members are no longer subject to firearm ownership restrictions. Jews are prohibited from manufacturing, dealing, possessing and carrying firearms and ammunition (violators are subject to imprisonment for up to five years).
- 1945: Legislative power is transferred to the Allied Military Commission.
- 1945-1946: All of Germany is disarmed, including the military, police and civilians. All firearms must be turned over to the nearest Allied Commander within 10 days. The maximum punishment for possession of a firearm is death.
The relaxing of the German gun laws of 1938 by Hitler’s government sits in stark contrast to what we are experiencing today in the United States where there is an obvious effort to circumvent the 2nd amendment to our constitution by what many see as a criminal and tyrannical government which is hell-bent on increasing its scope of power in general and its control over the people. While it is true that Hitler set up a fascist, police-state dictatorship, one must account for the reasons why he did so, including the extremely desperate situation Germany was facing prior to Hitler’s rise to power as a result of severe hyperinflation and unemployment, widespread prostitution and pornography, drug use and general lawlessness. Germany was also facing a very real threat of a communist takeover by the Bolshevik Jews who influenced the political, legal and educational systems, as well as the media. 1 2 3
Many of the Germans who did not initially support Hitler were willing to tolerate him out of pure desperation at a time when poverty and unemployment were rampant. In the early 1920’s a loaf of bread cost hundreds of billions of reichsmarks and a kilogram of butter cost thousands of billions of reichsmarks. 1 Hitler proposed real solutions to these enormous problems and eventually gained the overwhelming support of the German people, including former communists in some cases, because he produced tangible results. In just a few short years after coming to power he created millions of jobs and completely reversed the exponential downward spiral of Germany’s economy at a time when much of the rest of the world was still battling the effects of the banker engineered Great Depression. 2 3 4 Most importantly, Hitler restored the dignity of the German people which had been stripped of them by the Jewish-backed power-brokers who authored the Treaty of Versailles. These dramatic changes would not have been possible without the removal of the influential Jewish bankers, businessmen, politicians and communists from the positions of power they held. 5 The overwhelming support which Hitler came to enjoy — an unheard of 90% at one point — resulted in some of the largest and most enthusiastic rallies the world has ever known. 6 Widely praised for these accomplishments, no leader before or since has been able to match what Hitler had accomplished in Germany in just a few years.
Unlike Barry Soetero and the rest of the Jewish-Zionist funded presidents that have occupied the White House after the murder of John Kennedy, Hitler’s campaign did not rest on wish-washy words like “hope”; it rested on clear goals which were then met through decisive action. Hitler did not require an armored vehicle and bullet-proof clothing while presenting himself to millions of Germans in the streets and at rallies because nearly all of Germany respected and admired him. What politician in Washing D.C. can say the same today?
While there are parallels between Hitler’s Germany and the U.S. today, it is abundantly clear that the foundations of those politics are grossly different. There can be no comparison between the corrupt, lobbyist-driven, weak-kneed whores who have occupied Washington DC for decades and Adolf Hitler, who did not bow to Zionist controllers and worship at the Wailing Wall while our countrymen pay the price in blood and tears and taxes and bailouts as the nation loses its sole, descending dangerously close to the conditions present in Germany during the period of the Weimar Republic.
