I’ve been a bit busy lately, but I thought I would post something quick about an interview published in Die Zeit with Erardo Rautenberg, Attorney General for the German state of Brandenburg (sorry, no link). During the interview, part of a recent package of articles about far-right forces in Germany, Rautenberg quotes a handout prepared by the NPD to school party operatives on how to respond to questions about the party’s opposition to mixed marriages in Germany:
"The logical country of destination for such mongrels (Mischlinge) would be the USA, where there has never been a true folk community or national culture, but rather a thoroughly racialized (durchrasste[!]) nation built only by the will of the state and of individuals, a society of rootless, autonomous individuals, where the ethno-culturally castrated individual grows like a weed, without identity and homeland."
Rautenberg says passages like this clearly show the influence of Nazi racial ideology, and therefore justify banning the NPD. To see whether he was right about this, I turned to my well-thumbed copy of Mein Kampf (translated by Ralph Mannheim in 1943), and found this, on page 286:
"North America, whose population consists in by far the largest part of Germanic elements who mixed but little with the lower colored peoples, shows a different humanity and culture from Central and South America, where the predominantly Latin immigrants often mixed with aborigines on a large scale. By this one example, we can clearly and distinctly recognize the effect of racial mixture. The Germanic inhabitant of the American continent, who has remained racially pure and unmixed, rose to be master of the continent; he will remain the master as long as he does not fall a victim to defilement of the blood."
I’ll have more to say about this later, when I get a bit more free time. Since I don’t have time to put it all in context, let me issue a disclaimer to make sure I don’t get put on any government watch lists: This is all horribly stupid, delusional nonsense!
