2004 arrived safely,
whispering how successfully the Bush administration has waged our war on
terror. Although those who hate us intended us harm, Providence, along with
our government's vigilance and preemptive actions, prevented all holiday
season attacks. The only shocking attack the New Year brought us was the
Democratic organization, Move On's depraved plans to produce television advertising
comparing President George W. Bush to Adolf Hitler. I thought it might be
interesting to explore what Adolf Hitler himself might have thought of Move
On's degenerate derangement.
have no intention of explaining how the correspondence which I now offer
to the public fell into my hands. There are two equal and opposite errors
into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their
existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy
interest in them. (Preface to The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis)
My Dear Julius,i
Landsberg prison which I entered on April 1, 1924 and where I wrote Mein Kampf,
is strangely similar to this place, that I entered after shooting myself
to death on the afternoon of April 30, 1945, and from where I write this
letter. I found myself in both places involuntarily, yet they have each provided
me with peace as well as perspective to write of the ideas that fueled our
movement. I dedicated Mein Kampf to the dead heroes of the so-called
Beer Hall Putsch who fell on November 9, 1923 with loyal faith in the resurrection
of their people.ii I dedicate this letter to you along with the
nine other heroes who were martyred at the Nuremberg tribunal and who joined
me here on October 16, 1946.
In the timeless eternity of our existence here, I often reflect upon my single
biggest mistake -- underestimating America. Early in 1941, Ribbentrop and
I promised the Japanese Foreign Minister, Yosuke Matsuoka, that should Japan
become engaged in a war against the United States, Germany would join the
war immediately. However, to us, the Three-Power Pact had as its goal frightening
and keeping America out of the war. I encouraged Japan to immediately take
an active part in the war against Englandiii and not to provoke
America. Although I didn't see much future for the Americans, I did not want
them in the war until we had put down Russia.
Exactly one month after the Japanese betrayed me by attacking Pearl Harbor
I told you all at our Berlin headquarters that America is a decayed country.
My feelings about America were feelings of hatred and deep repugnance. Everything
about the behavior of American society reveals that it's half Judaized and
the other half Negrified. How can one expect a state like that to hold together?iv
Well, America did hold together and she seized victory from us. However,
and this is important my friend, she has finally adopted many of the vital
ideas for which we lived and died. Could not this be described as an ultimate
Let me explain. First and foremost we were socialists. As national socialists,
or Nazis, we knew that government must control the people. Thus, we understood
that the old German tradition of citizens owning guns had to end. On March
18, 1938 we enacted our Law on Weapons and ruled that only government officials
were allowed to own firearms. You can imagine my approval as I watched Senator
Thomas Dodd craft America's Gun Control Act of 1968 by having our own law
of 1938 translated for him by an official of The Library of Congress.v
My dear Julius, we can be proud of how similarly the two laws read. Those
advocating gun control in America are naïve and well-meaning. They will
help socialism prevail. We told the German people that gun control laws were
needed to curb gang activity and preserve democracy, what those laws really
did was help our national socialist government prevail.
Do you remember, dear Julius, how we Nazis always understood that German
citizens were our future and the destiny of our nation. We did everything
possible to keep our people healthy. In the same way that wise farmers must
accept responsibility for the health of their herds, we used the power of
government to keep our flocks healthy. Since both mind and body were supposed
to belong to the Fuhrer, we tried to criminalize the smoking of cigarettes.
Our Ministry of Science and Education ordered elementary schools to discuss the dangers of tobacco.vi
Government sponsored cultural and educational events were declared to be
"smoke-free." In the late 1930s we called for increased taxes on cigarettes
and later instituted bans on cigarette advertising. I am most proud of the
legislation we introduced prohibiting sales of cigarettes to minors. We set
up counseling centers for the psychological treatment of smokers and we established
We soon managed to prohibit smoking on Luftwaffe properties and followed
that with prohibiting smoking in post offices, government buildings and many
workplaces. "No Smoking" cars were established on all German trains with
fines levied upon violators and in 1940 SS Chief Heinrich Himmler announced
a smoking ban for all on-duty police and SS officers. Our comrade, Hermann
Goring, decreed that soldiers may not smoke in public and most of our cities
banned smoking on public transport in order to protect the ticket takers
from the hazards of second-hand smoke. We can indeed be proud that today
America has also come to realize the importance of central government taking
the initiative in regulating what people do not have the good sense to do
voluntarily. We may have lost that battle of ideas in the middle of the twentieth
century, but with the help of foolish Americans, we Nazis are winning in
the long run.
Do you remember that awkwardness in late 1940, my dear Julius? The American
consulate in Leipzig reported to the American State Department, that we were
conducting compassionate euthanasia on the patients in the Grafeneck Mental
Asylum in Wurttemberg. What uproar resulted in America! But now, one of America's
most prestigious universities has appointed as professor of bioethics (whatever
that is) one who openly advocates putting to death the mentally defective,
the terminally ill and even severely disabled infants. He would give parents
and doctors the right to actually kill-not just withhold treatment-imperfect
newborns. What genius! The professor insists that a newborn has no greater
right to life than pigs, cows and dogs. He is one of us, Julius. And the
best part of it is that those who yesterday, loudly protested our comparatively
mild policies in Wurttemberg, have today not uttered even a squeak of protest.
The ridiculous idea that all human life is sacred is now finally under attack
in America. One president was reelected even after he affirmed the legitimacy
of exterminating infants during birth and some American doctors in their
province of Oregon have begun doing away with the elderly and weak. Yes,
America is certainly coming around to our way of seeing things.
Finally dear Julius, you will remember what I frequently said and wrote in Mein Kampf: "The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people."vii
I said that as long as we explain how the government is working for the benefit
of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of
liberty and almost any deprivation. It is truly heartwarming to see how well
this lesson has been learned by some Americans. In the name of "the children,"
incursions into the private lives of American citizens have been made that
we Nazis would have gazed at with open mouthed admiration. Does it matter
that our bodies failed as long as our spirit still triumphs?
I know you have a question to ask me, my friend: What about the Jews? After
all, how can I say that much of America is adopting our views when Jews still
exert such disproportionate influence in that country? Grasp the genius of
your Fuhrer, my good friend. You see dear Julius, with well meaning earnestness,
most American Jews are solidly behind the ideas I have been describing. In
the mistaken belief that they are making America safer for minorities, many
American Jews have joined those advocating ever larger and ever more powerful
government. In reality, what they are doing is making America more hospitable
to our form of socialism. When it eventually arrives, they too will see the
real dangers, but by then, it will be too late. Now they only see danger
in illiterate thugs with no hair on their heads and in degenerate psychopaths
with second hand Nazi regalia. American Jews are frightened by a handful
of the sort of lowlifes we used to execute, instead of being terrified of
the real danger they themselves are helping to create-government with almost
limitless power to tax and grow.
And it wasn't just the Jews. Joseph Goebbels put it quite correctly when
he said, "The Fuhrer is deeply religious though completely anti-Christian.
He views Christianity as a symptom of decay. Rightly so, it is a branch of
the Jewish race."viii We can be confident that America will preserve
and develop our Nazi ideas of human perfectability because of one stroke
of genius that even Reich minister of propaganda, the great Joseph Goebbels,
has to admire. Those who are advocating socialism in America, whether deliberately
or inadvertently, have succeeded in turning the term "Nazi" into a slur that
may only be used against conservatives. Never is it used against those on
the left who are precisely the Americans doing most to advance our agenda.
We are winning Julius, thanks to those American Democrats, we are winning.
