FTR #844 Interview (#7) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

Peter Levenda’s “The Hitler Legacy” is, in Mr. Emory’s opinion, one of the most important political books ever written. This seventh interview with Peter about the book sets forth the powerful Nazi presence in Indonesia prior to, during, and after World War II. In addition to the significant presence of the Dutch Nazi party in Indonesia, the NSDAP also had a significant presence in this former colony of the Netherlands. The most populous Muslim country in the world, Indonesia was seen as the key element in an Islamist bulwark against Communist China. This stratagem was envisioned by Charles Willoughby, General Douglas MacArthur’s intelligence chief and a doctrinaire fascist. Although supportive of Axis conquest of the Netherlands and Indonesia, which he saw as freeing the archipelago from colonial domination, Sukarno espoused a “Third Way” at the conference of Non-Aligned nations in Bandung in 1955. This led the US to see him as a Communist and begin attempts to depose him. In order to provide financing for Indonesia and other Third World countries, Sukarno appears to have turned to Hjalmar Schacht, Hitler’s finance minister, who utilized Nazi gold shipments to Asia to “prime the economic pump” for this abortive project.


Germany and the Fragmenting of the United Kingdom

So-called “progressive” elements within the EU are advancing the German agenda of working to fragment larger nations. In addition to the Greens, the European Free Alliance is moving to redraw the map of Europe, with a greatly expanded Germany. German NGO’s are supporting the secession of parts of the United Kingdom. Some of those same NGO’s have also been supportive of terrorist/Muslim Brotherhood elements during the so-called Arab Spring.


Austerity as a Vehicle for Breaking Up Nations

Over the years, we have covered the Hapsburg/Thyssen UNPO and its championing of ethnic minorities as a vehicle for breaking up large nations into smaller, more pliable states. Using the human suffering and social dislocation brought about by its “austerity” program to fragment large nations, Germany is actively supporting the secession of Catalonia from Spain and, in cooperation its Austrian partner, the South Tyrol from Italy. Manifesting what, for lack of a better term, might be called “ethnic imperialism,” Germany is using far-right, neo-Nazi elements as foot soldiers to assist the vertriebene groups in promoting the secession of German-speaking minorities in Poland and other parts of Eastern Europe. Targeting China, Germany continues its equivocal support for individuals and ethnic groups seeking to fragment that nation. As we have seen in past discussion, the United States is also targeted for Balkanization and subversion.
