FTR #838 Interview (#1) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

The first of sev­er­al inter­views with Peter Lev­en­da about his impor­tant new book “The Hitler Lega­cy,” this pro­gram high­lights the evo­lu­tion of ele­ments which fig­ure into the devel­op­ment of the post-war Nazi under­ground. At the end of the First World War, the Bol­she­vik Rev­o­lu­tion in Rus­sia and abortive Marx­ist upris­ings in Ger­many and else­where in Europe infused the pow­er elite in the U.S. with a para­noid ide­o­log­i­cal ter­ror of a glob­al “Jew­ish-Marx­ist” con­spir­a­cy. Com­bined with fear of Catholic and Jew­ish immi­grants and their effect on Amer­i­can soci­ety, this ide­o­log­i­cal para­noia fused with a social Dar­win­ism that found its expres­sion in eugenics–a pseu­do-intel­lec­tu­al doc­trine that sought the pro­mo­tion of “desir­able” social and eth­nic types and the sup­pres­sion and/or elim­i­na­tion of “infe­ri­or” racial types. See­ing Ger­many as the point ele­ment in the strug­gle against world Marx­ism, indi­vid­u­als and polit­i­cal par­ties sought to ally with Ger­man fas­cists to bring fas­cism to the U.S. This fas­cist Fifth Col­umn includ­ed polit­i­cal groups rang­ing from the Ku Klux Klan to the Sil­ver Shirts of William Dud­ley Pel­ley, as well as the pro­to­typ­i­cal right-wing talk show host Father Charles Cough­lin, “the Radio Priest.” Cough­lin’s efforts were sub­si­dized by Third Reich intel­li­gence. Financed by financiers and indus­tri­al­ists who sup­port­ed fas­cism, this Fifth Col­umn attempt­ed to kill and/or over­throw FDR on sev­er­al occa­sions. In the Mid­dle East, the con­cept of glob­al jihad was devel­oped by Ger­man archael­o­gist Max von Oppen­heim dur­ing the First World War. Envi­sion­ing the world’s Mus­lims as proxy war­riors against the Entente Pow­ers of Britain, France and Rus­sia, von Oppen­heim cre­at­ed the tem­plate for con­tem­po­rary Islam­ic fas­cism and jihadism. Fol­low­ing the divi­sion of the for­mer Ottoman Empire by Britain and France after World War I, the “Arab Street” began man­i­fest­ing belief in an inter­na­tion­al glob­al con­spir­a­cy involv­ing Jews and the Euro­pean colo­nial pow­ers that res­onat­ed with the Amer­i­can pow­er elite’s ido­l­og­i­cal anx­i­eties.

FTR #819 Proxy War and the Earth Island Boogie (What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “Underground Reich?,” Part 3)

Author Peter Lev­en­da has post­ed an arti­cle (excerpt­ed from his recent book) that encap­su­lates sig­nif­i­cant ele­ments of dis­cus­sion pre­sent­ed by Mr. Emory and fea­tured on this web­site. Not­ing Impe­r­i­al Ger­many’s use of Islam­ic proxy war­riors dur­ing the First World War and Nazi Ger­many’s incor­po­ra­tion of the same strat­a­gem, Lev­en­da notes that Nazi ele­ments have con­tin­ued to use Mus­lim proxy war­fare to advance the goals of what Mr. Emory calls the Under­ground Reich. Hav­ing incor­po­rat­ed many impor­tant ele­ments of Nazi Ger­many’s nation­al secu­ri­ty estab­lish­ment into its own after World War II, the Unit­ed States has co-opt­ed the tac­tic of proxy war. To its detri­ment, the U.S. has failed to grasp that the Under­ground Reich and its Islamist prox­ies have their own agen­das. Those agen­das fea­ture the defeat of the Unit­ed States as a cen­ter­piece of long-term strat­e­gy. Con­clud­ing with an exam­i­na­tion of recent Amer­i­can mil­i­tary involve­ment, the pro­gram notes that much of what we are doing actu­al­ly ben­fits Ger­many and occurs in areas for­mer­ly belong­ing to the Ottoman Empire.

FTR #816 Revisiting the 1972 Olympics Massacre

Revis­it­ing the sub­ject of the 1972 Olympics mas­sacre, we probe more deeply into the under­ly­ing dynam­ics of that event. Hav­ing not­ed in AFA #22 that secu­ri­ty for the games was han­dled by a BND agent named Hans Lange­mann, we review his work cov­er­ing up for the neo-Nazis behind the Okto­ber­fest bomb­ing of 1980. Ger­man neo-Nazis also aid­ed the Black Sep­tem­ber ter­ror­ists who per­pe­trat­ed the Olympics mas­sacre. Despite the fact that the Ger­man gov­ern­ment had advanced warn­ing of the impend­ing attack, no pre­ven­tive action was tak­en. After the attacks, the Ger­man gov­ern­ment was in close touch with the per­pe­tra­tors and down­play­ing the sig­nif­i­cance of the inci­dent. Willi Pohl, one of the neo-Nazis involved who assist­ed Black Sep­tem­ber with the 1972 attack, began work­ing in a counter-ter­ror capac­i­ty for the CIA. Black Sep­tem­ber chief Ali Has­san Salameh, in charge of the attacks, was also impressed into duty with CIA, hav­ing been recruit­ed while Hen­ry Kissinger was astride of Richard Nixon’s nation­al secu­ri­ty pol­i­cy. In spec­u­la­tive mode, we ask if there MAY be a con­nec­tion between Kissinger’s efforts to desta­bi­lize the Willi Brandt government–undertaken con­junc­tion with Third Reich veterans–and the Olympics mas­sacre?

FTR #801 The Sportin’ Life

With much of the human race foam­ing at the mouth over the World Cup com­pe­ti­tion cur­rent­ly under­way in Brazil, we pause to note the pro­found con­nec­tions between the world of sport, inter­na­tion­al fas­cism and orga­nized crime. After high­light­ing fas­cist soc­cer fans in atten­dance in Brazil, the pro­gram notes the cesspool that is the Inter­na­tion­al Olympic Com­mit­tee, imprint­ed with fas­cist par­tic­i­pa­tion by Juan Anto­nio Sama­ranch, Fran­cis­co Fran­co’s for­mer Min­is­ter of Sport. The 1972 Olympics mas­sacre in Munich fea­tured pos­si­ble com­plic­i­ty by ele­ments of the Ger­man gov­ern­ment and the Under­ground Reich. The pro­gram con­cludes by look­ing at Amer­i­can orga­nized crime links to the milieu of the NFL and the prob­a­ble Mob fix­ing of Bob­by Rig­gs and Bil­lie Jean King’s “Bat­tle of the Sex­es.”

Germans Had Prior Warning about Olympics Massacre

Ger­man author­i­ties had a warn­ing three weeks before the Olympics mas­sacre of 1972. With secu­ri­ty head­ed by an offi­cer of the BND, the final incar­na­tion of the Gehlen “Org” and with neo-Nazis assist­ing the Pales­tin­ian ter­ror­ists, this comes as no sur­prise. The BND Olympics secu­ri­ty chief has also been accused of stag­ing provo­ca­tions and pro­vid­ing an ali­bi for a Nazi leader in the 1980 Okto­ber­fest bomb­ing.

Turkish Foreign Minister Pursues Ottoman Irredentist, Islamist and Revisionist Policy Course

  COMMENT: In past pro­grams, we’ve asked whether the new­ly invig­o­rat­ed pan-Turk­ist move­ment and Islamism might con­verge. Just such a devel­op­ment appears to be gain­ing momen­tum, with Turk­ish for­eign min­is­ter Ahmet Davu­to­glu hav­ing observed  the Mus­lim hol­i­day of Eid el-Fitr in Bosnia/Herzogovina. In addi­tion to the fact that this for­mer Yugosla­vian province was part of […]

More Truth in Advertising: Hezbollah Welcomes Achmadinejad

Com­ment: Hezbol­lah troops demon­strat­ed their Nazi/fascist polit­i­cal her­itage when greet­ing vis­it­ing Iran­ian pres­i­dent Achmadine­jad to Lebanon. Descend­ed from the Devo­tees of Islam, a Shia per­mu­ta­tion of the Islam­o­fas­cist Mus­lim  Broth­er­hood, Hezbol­lah’s cadre dis­play the lega­cy of the Grand Mufti and the Third Reich’s use of Mus­lims as proxy war­rior. “Hezbol­lah Stronger than Ever as Achmadine­jad […]

FTR #722 The “9/11 Mosque” Tea Party and its Multiple Mad Hatters

“9/11 Mosque” Imam no mod­er­ate; sec­ond gen­er­a­tion Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, his for­eign lan­guage pro­nounce­ments and actions belie his “mod­er­a­tion;” Sup­port­ers and oppo­nents ignore pro­found ties between their “side” and what they oppose.

FTR #721 A Mosque in Munich
