I wonder if 'Huff' is short for Huffington, as in 'Huffington Post', because the tripe that Ethan wrote in a recent article jives well with the tripe that's upchucked by that propaganda spewing cesspool.
In a striking display of ignorance and incompetence, Ethan Huff penned for us the article, The Green Swastika: Environmentalism was a pillar of the Third Reich, which is based on a book of a similar title. Read the article. It's a hoot.
The website on which it first appeared, Natural News, is a decent source of information regarding natural, alternative healthcare, however when its authors (Ethan is apparently a staff writer there) go off the health rails and proceed to speculate upon subjects of which they know little or nothing about, like history for instance (and other things), they often discredit themselves to the point of lunacy. Given Natural News' apparent fondness of Alex 'Bullshit' Jones, who seems incapable of screaming at his audience longer than 20 minutes at a shot without comparing something or someone to Hitler, i suppose we probably shouldn't expect much from Ethan when he address who he thinks Hitler was and what his real agenda was … and fails miserably.
Caring for the environment and being good stewards of our many natural blessings is much different than worshiping the environment and demanding, under threat of force, that everyone adopt strict, and often totalitarian, environmentalist doctrines. The former is how we conserve and preserve our world for both ourselves and future generations, while the latter embodies something that Adolph Hitler actually perpetuated as part of his Nazi agenda for the world.
Aren't laws in the United States and elsewhere enforced under the threat of force? How is this different from National Socialist Germany and Hitler, who some see as the founder of modern environmentalism?
Ethan closes the paragraph with the popular cliché that Hitler was intent on world domination, a fairy tale neither he nor the German people aspired to, nor one his military had the capacity to undertake. Once again, yet another brainwashed, government indoctrinated fool is apparently ignorant of the several documented attempts Hitler made in an effort to avert the Second World War and again to end it quickly after the allies ignited it, all of which were ignored by those who had no intention of a peaceful resolution because of what they stood to gain from war with Germany. Shortly before his death in Berlin (or not), Hitler wrote the following:
It is untrue that I or anyone else in Germany wanted the war in 1939. It was desired and instigated exclusively by those international statesmen who were either of Jewish descent or worked for Jewish interests. I have made too many offers for the control and limitation of armaments, which posterity will not for all time be able to disregard for the responsibility for the outbreak of this war to be laid on me. I have further never wished that after the first fatal world war a second against England, or even against America, should break out. Centuries will pass away, but out of the ruins of our towns and monuments the hatred against those finally responsible whom we have to thank for everything, international Jewry and its helpers, will grow.
Three days before the outbreak of the German-Polish war I again proposed to the British ambassador in Berlin a solution to the German-Polish problem—similar to that in the case of the Saar district, under international control. This offer also cannot be denied. It was only rejected because the leading circles in English politics wanted the war, partly on account of the business hoped for and partly under influence of propaganda organized by international Jewry.
Well Adolf, it seems you were wrong about posterity eventually correcting itself. As long as historically ignorant fools and those with political agendas write about history, the facts, in the public mind at least, will continue to be twisted and perverted into something completely disconnected from truth. I don't know what the figure is, but i would venture a guess that no less than 75% of the people in the west would agree that six million Jews were murdered in gas chambers during Hitler's reign and yet, while even Wikipedia uses this figure, there is not a single creditable historian on planet earth who promotes this fabrication.
In his book, "The Green Swastika: Environmentalism in the Third Reich, author William Kay offers a detailed historical account of the German environmentalist movement under Hitler, comparing it to the far-left environmentalist movements of today. Believe it or not, many of today's so-called "anti-fascists are actually embracing the very same dogma as the world's most well-known fascist – and they don't even realize it.
Interesting that William Kay apparently has a keen interest in politicizing environmentalism, much less in connecting the environmental movement of the day to Hitler. I wasn't aware that those who like trees might just be far-left anti-fascist/fascist Hitler sympathizers. Who knew?
In five short chapters, Kay outlines how the fanatical activism of today's "green movement mirrors that perpetuated by Hitler in Nazi Germany. Not only that, but many people misunderstand what Hitler was even trying to do with Naziism as a whole, erroneously claiming that he was simply out to get Jews and restore nationalism, which couldn't be further from the truth, according to Kay.
Ethan hits the nail on the head here! Indeed it is the widest audience, himself included, that misunderstands what Hitler tried to do. Hitler saw some Jews as a problem because they were in fact a problem. Here's an exercise for Ethan: Go dig up some photographs of 1920s Germany and compare them to those of the late 30s and 40s after Hitler rebuilt the country whilst much of the rest of the world was still suffering from the fallout of the Great Depression that was engineered by the international bankers whom Hitler rightly despised. Hitler never claimed he was "out to get Jews" (i wonder if Ethan is aware that many thousands of Jews fought in Hitlers army?), but he certainly understood well the incredible power the Jewish communists, financiers and businessmen wielded in Germany and how the country suffered horribly as a result. He understood well the deal the Zionists made with Britain to drag the U.S. into the Great War in return for a homeland in Palestine. He understood well the Jewish-Zionist influence that drove the decision making in Versailles. It is only indoctrinated idiots and Zionist sympathizers that overlook such historic facts, such as the fact that the Jews were kicked out of roughly 67 countries prior to Klara ever pinning the first diaper on her son Adolf. Does anybody bother to ask why? Certainly Ethan does not and certainly he and the rest of his ilk would prefer you didn't either because one who speculates on this important and obvious question will inevitably reach a conclusion that contradicts the victimhood status of the Jewish people that has been rammed down our throats by the status quo for the last 70-plus years.
To attempt to pervert and shoehorn the goals of National Socialism and Hitler into a fabricated ideology of environmental "worshiping" is ignorance nearly beyond comprehension to anyone who has studied the subject. Hitler had far more important and real problems to deal with and one need look no further than what prominent Jews and others were saying during that period to understand what they might have been:
"You have not begun to appreciate the real depth of our guilt. We are intruders. We are disturbers. We are subverters. We have taken your natural world, your ideals, your destiny, and played havoc with them. We have been at the bottom not merely of the latest great war but of nearly all your wars, not only of the Russian but of every other major revolution in your history. We have brought discord and confusion and frustration into your personal and public life. We are still doing it. No one can tell how long we shall go on doing it. — Marcus Eli Ravage, A Real Case Against the Jews, The Century Magazine, Jan. 1928, Vol. 115, p. 347 (source)
"But as the Jew assimilates, acquires your languages, cultivates a certain intimacy, penetrates into your life, begins to handle your instruments, you are aware that his nature, once confined safely to his own life, now threatens yours. — Maurice Samuel, You Gentiles, 1924, p. 144 (source)
"The wealthy Jews control the world, in their hands lies the fate of governments and nations. They set governments one against the other. When the wealthy Jews play, the nations and the rulers dance. One way or the other, they get rich. — Theodore Herzl, founder of Zionism, in Deutsche Zeitung (source)
"Whilst large sections of the German nation are struggling for the preservation of their race, we Jews fill Germany with our vociferations. We supply the press with articles on the subject of its Christmas and Easter. We ridicule the highest ideals of the German nation and profane the matters which it holds sacred. — Dr. Manfred Reifer, well known leader of the German Jews, in Czernowitzer Allgemeine Zeitung magazine, Sep. 1933, as quoted in Witness to History by Michael Walsh (source)
"Hitler will have no war (does not want war), but we will force it on him, not this year, but soon. — Emil Ludwig Cohn in Les Annales, June, 1934, as quoted in a 1943 edition of Das Stürmer (source)
"The war now proposed is for the purpose of establishing Jewish hegemony throughout the world. — Brigadier General George Van Horn Mosely in The Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle, Apr. 7, 1939 (source)
"The Second World War is being fought for the defense of the fundamentals of Judaism. — Rabbi Felix Mendlesohn in the Chicago Sentinel, Oct. 8, 1942 (source)
There's plenty more where they came from.
Ethan continues with..
Hitler was opposed to true, or classical, liberalism, which in today's terminology would be most closely aligned with conservatism. In other words, Hitler was a modern-day liberal who sought to silence those who promoted ideas like free-market capitalism and free speech – which means he would have been welcomed with open arms by Antifa and other radicalized leftist groups in today's world.
Hitler was opposed to the same entity which many of the activists of the day are; the international money-lending cartel that twice raped and pillaged Germany in every way it found convenient, the same as it has done in many other countries before and after the war, and this cartel consists largely of Jewish-Zionist criminals who have bribed and cajoled the willing political whores of the day into enacting laws to suppress free speech. Little does Ethan know that the largest book burnings in Germany took place after the war during the reeducation programs imposed by the allies.
"He attacked modernity through the Jews. Hitler's Judeo-Bolshevik myth is well-acknowledged, but his Judeo-liberal myth is avoided."
I'm guessing Ethan and the equally historically ignorant William Kay might disagree with what Rabbi Yosef has to say regarding the matter:
Hitler's "Judeo-liberal myth" is avoided because it never existed. The communist Soviet government was dominated by Jews, another straightforward fact which Ethan either choose to omit or simply doesn't possess, and it was Jews like Rosa Luxemberg who were actively spreading communist ideology in Germany.
Speaking of Christianity, this is another common misnomer in how people view Hitler. While it would seem that his doctrines included those also embodied by Christians, Kay says Hitler was a private atheist who, when he wasn't speaking publicly, would bash true Christianity and the people who claimed it as typifying their faith.
My first reaction to that statement is; so what? What bearing does Hitler's religion, or alleged lack thereof, have to do with anything relevant? And if he was an atheist, why would he–the brutal, psychopathic, all-powerful dictator who murdered six million Jews without batting an eye, as we are led to believe–permit his soldiers to get away with wearing belt buckles that contradicted his own atheistic philosophy?
Isn't it interesting that writers like Ethan often fail to provide sufficient, creditable sources to back their wild claims? The reason is obvious to anyone who has bothered to research Germany's role in World War II beyond the rubbish that was funneled down our gullets by Hollywood and in the government indoctrination centers we were forced to attend as youngsters.
