Kast’s Past

In–among oth­er programs–AFA#19 and FTR#839–we have described the deep Nazi links to the Chilean dic­ta­tor­ship of Augus­to Pinochet. A rel­a­tive­ly small detail may have large deep polit­i­cal impli­ca­tions. ” . . . . The Ger­man-born father of Chilean pres­i­den­tial can­di­date José Anto­nio Kast was a mem­ber of the Nazi par­ty, accord­ing to a recent­ly unearthed doc­u­ment – rev­e­la­tions that appear at odds with the far-right candidate’s own state­ments about his father’s mil­i­tary ser­vice dur­ing the Sec­ond World War. . . . A fer­vent Roman Catholic and father of nine, Kast has deep fam­i­ly ties to the mil­i­tary dic­ta­tor­ship of Gen Augus­to Pinochet that came to pow­er fol­low­ing a coup in 1973. His broth­er Miguel served as the dictator’s cen­tral bank pres­i­dent. . . .” WFMU-FM is pod­cast­ing For The Record–You can sub­scribe to the pod­cast HERE.

Transcript of Miscellaneous Archive Show M4: “Gloria in Excelsis”

In 1986, we record­ed Mis­cel­la­neous Archive Show M4, deal­ing with fem­i­nist icon Glo­ria Steinem’s rela­tion­ship with the CIA. Record­ed at too high a lev­el, the pro­gram makes dif­fi­cult lis­ten­ing. We are pub­lish­ing a tran­script to sup­ple­ment our FTR series on “Weaponized Fem­i­nism.”

FTR #839 Interview (#2) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

Resum­ing with, and fur­ther devel­op­ing a key ele­ment of dis­cus­sion high­light­ed in our pre­vi­ous inter­view, Peter sets forth “the ori­gins of glob­al jihad.” 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 ide­o­log­i­cal anx­i­eties of Euro­pean and Amer­i­can pow­er elites, Ger­man, in par­tic­u­lar. Von Oppen­heim’s strat­e­gy also employed the con­cept of “total war,” incor­po­rat­ing vio­lence against civil­ians as part of the tem­plate that became a key fea­ture of Islamist ter­ror­ism. The pro­gram also notes that, when the Nazi par­ty came to pow­er in Ger­many, NSDAP ide­o­logues were placed in posi­tions of influ­ence around the world, where they inter­act­ed with like mind­ed indi­vid­u­als and insti­tu­tions. In the U.S., Ger­man spies worked close­ly with inter­ests asso­ci­at­ed with Hen­ry Ford, includ­ing and espe­cial­ly Ukrain­ian fas­cists who worked with the Third Reich. The pro­gram con­cludes with an account of Peter’s har­row­ing vis­it to the Chilean Nazi out­post Colo­nia Dig­nidad, a tor­ture cen­ter for the Pinochet dic­ta­tor­ship, an epi­cen­ter of Oper­a­tion Con­dor, a recip­i­ent of glob­al Nazi mon­ey and the devel­op­ment site for weapons of mass destruc­tion.
