FTR #901 Fascism: Past, Present and Future

Col­lab­o­ra­tion by pow­er­ful, influ­en­tial West­ern and Amer­i­can insti­tu­tions has enabled the per­pet­u­a­tion of what Mr. Emory calls “The Under­ground Reich.” In addi­tion to the cor­po­rate inter­ests who backed the Axis, jour­nal­is­tic orga­ni­za­tions such as the Asso­ci­at­ed Press collaborated–the lega­cy of that col­lab­o­ra­tion being a dis­tort­ed view of his­to­ry. Much of the pro­gram high­lights the return “above-ground” of polit­i­cal ele­ments of the Under­ground Reich. In Ukraine, the heirs to the OUN/B fas­cists con­tin­ue to gain grav­i­tas polit­i­cal­ly and mil­i­tar­i­ly. The open­ly Nazi Azov Bat­tal­ion will now receive fund­ing and train­ing from the U.S. gov­ern­ment, thanks to the omnibus fund­ing bill passed in Decem­ber of 2015. With Ukrain­ian mem­bers of Par­lia­ment open­ly man­i­fest­ing their Nazi sym­pa­thies, those who pro­fess to be “shocked, shocked” at devel­op­ments should recon­sid­er their point of view. In Croa­t­ia, Ustachi ele­ments have gained con­trol of the gov­ern­ment, as attest­ed to by the out­go­ing prime min­is­ter. Croa­t­ian cul­tur­al events, such as foot­ball [soc­cer] match­es con­tin­ue to expe­ri­ence open cel­e­bra­tion of pro-Ustacha sen­ti­ment. After review­ing the Cru­sade For Free­dom and its pro­jec­tion of East­ern Euro­pean Nazi col­lab­o­ra­tors into the GOP, the pro­gram high­lights the Nazi-like polit­i­cal agen­da of the AfD. Rep­re­sent­ed as “anti-immi­grant,” it embraces a qua­si-eugen­ics agen­da and his­tor­i­cal revi­sion­ism rem­i­nis­cent of the NSDAP’s agen­da. The pro­gram con­cludes with a look at the future of fas­cism, with Nazi hack­er extra­or­di­naire Andrew “Weev” Auern­heimer hav­ing hacked print­ers and made them spew white suprema­cist pro­pa­gan­da, as well as tweet­ing Nazi ide­ol­o­gy in such as man­ner as to (appar­ent­ly) aug­ment his stash of Bit­coins. The pro­gram fea­tures a look at Tay, the Microsoft AI “chat­bot” that turned into a Nazi 24 hours after going online. Pro­gram High­lights Include: the AP’s use of SS press liai­son Franz Roth as a pho­to edi­tor; the AP’s cov­er-up of the Lviv pogroms in Ukraine; the direct asso­ci­a­tion of Croa­t­ian cul­ture min­is­ter Zlatko Hasan­be­gov­ic with the son-in-law of Croa­t­ian World War II dic­ta­tor Ante Pavel­ic; Auern­hemer’s asso­ci­a­tion with Glenn Green­wald; Ukrain­ian pres­i­dent Petro Poroshenko being allowed to address to the Knesset–the Israeli parliament–despite his hav­ing laid a wreath in trib­ute to the OUN/B at the site of the Babi Yar mas­sacre (1200 of the 1800 exe­cu­tion­ers at Babi Yar were from the OUN/B); the ele­va­tion of Svo­bo­da par­ty mem­ber Andriy Paru­biy to be the speak­er of the Ukrain­ian par­lia­ment; the use of the “14 words” by Svo­bo­da politi­cians in Ukraine, as well as Auern­heimer; recap of Croa­t­ian foot­baller Joe Simu­nic’s lead­ing of a crowd in the “Za Dom Sprem­ni” Ustachi chant.


Nazis in Ukraine, Hypocrisy Elsewhere, Including Israel

Address­ing the Knes­set (Israel’s par­lia­ment), Ukrain­ian pres­i­dent Petro Poroshenko recent­ly gave a pro-for­ma apol­o­gy for the par­tic­i­pa­tion of Ukraini­ans in the Holo­caust. Israel is among the coun­tries that glossed over Poroshenko’s hon­or­ing of the OUN/B exe­cu­tion­ers at Babi Yar (right). The recent elec­tion of a Nazi may­or in a Ukrain­ian town should sur­prise no one.

FTR #869 The Assassination of Olof Palme, Part 2

Con­tin­u­ing dis­cus­sion and analy­sis from FTR #868, this pro­gram under­scores the pos­si­ble role of Swedish and Scan­di­na­vian fas­cists over­lap­ping both WACL and Sapo, the Swedish intel­li­gence ser­vice. Involved with escape net­works forged to aid the inter­na­tion­al flight from jus­tice of fas­cists and Nazis, the prin­ci­pals in these net­works exhib­it­ed behav­ior around the time of the Palme killing that is sug­ges­tive. Worth not­ing in this regard is the late Stieg Larsson’s inves­ti­ga­tion of the Palme killing, which point­ed in the direc­tion of some of the same fig­ures exam­ined in the Kruger essay. The pro­gram con­cludes with an exam­i­na­tion of the Bofors muni­tions firm and its cor­po­rate links to Third Reich indus­try and the post­war Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work, with which it may well be affil­i­at­ed.


FTR #868: The Assassination of Olof Palme, Part 1

The first of two pro­grams high­light­ing the unsolved 1986 assas­si­na­tion of Swedish Prime Min­is­ter Olof Palme, the broad­cast fea­tures a 1988 arti­cle by the bril­liant free­lance Dan­ish jour­nal­ist Hen­rik Kruger, author of “The Great Hero­in Coup: Drugs, Intel­li­gence and Inter­na­tion­al Fas­cism.” Through this exam­i­na­tion of the inter­sect­ed net­works that Kruger has termed (in “The Great Hero­in Coup”) “The Inter­na­tion­al Fascista,” we are able to observe the ele­ments of Oper­a­tion Con­dor, key indi­vid­u­als and insti­tu­tions com­pris­ing the for­mer World Anti-Com­mu­nist League, indi­vid­u­als and orga­ni­za­tions under­ly­ing “the Strat­e­gy of Ten­sion” in Italy, as well as the cast of char­ac­ters that man­aged the Iran-Con­tra machi­na­tions. Long the focal point of death threats and assas­si­na­tion attempts, Palme had earned the lethal ire of fas­cists in North and South Amer­i­ca, as well as Europe. The fail­ure to solve the killing, despite the pas­sage of almost 30 years and some very strong evi­den­tiary trib­u­taries, under­scores the grav­i­tas of the forces that destroyed Palme. Kruger’s arti­cle also serves as some­thing of an “in vit­ro” win­dow into many of the polit­i­cal net­works we have exam­ined over the years.


Azov Battalion Training Kids as Young as Six: Ukrainian Hitler Youth?

The most vis­i­ble and best-pub­li­cized of the Nazi fight­ing for­ma­tions in Ukraine is the Azov bat­tal­ion. We now learn that Azov is train­ing a “youth cadre”–including chil­dren as young as six. We don’t think it is much of a reach to see their “young ‘uns” as what might be accu­rate­ly viewed as a Ukrain­ian Hitler Youth.

FTR #858 The NED File

Extend­ing exam­i­na­tion of the most inap­pro­pri­ate­ly named Nation­al Endow­ment for Democ­ra­cy, the pro­gram high­lights that insti­tu­tion’s role as a direct exten­sion of U.S. intel­li­gence. In addi­tion to hav­ing financed the Maid­an coup in Ukraine, the NED has been posi­tion­ing itself to effect “regime change” in Rus­sia. One of the part­ners with NED in financ­ing the Maid­an coup is Pierre Omid­yar, Glenn Green­wald’s finan­cial angel and the head of EBay. Omid­yar is now part­ner­ing with NED to cre­ate a “fact-check­ing ser­vice.” Vladimir Putin has cracked down on NED and oth­er for­eign NGO’s that are polit­i­cal­ly active in Rus­sia, using the prece­dent of an Amer­i­can law that oblig­es polit­i­cal activists and orga­ni­za­tions financed from abroad to reg­is­ter as agents of for­eign gov­ern­ments. Review­ing infor­ma­tion from FTR #848, the pro­gram high­lights NED’s active pro­jec­tion of World War II-era fas­cists and Nazi col­lab­o­ra­tors into Lithua­nia, where the paved the way for the desta­bi­liza­tion of the U.S.S.R., as well as the polit­i­cal reha­bil­i­ta­tion of Baltic Waf­fen SS units. Pro­gram High­lights Include: the found­ing of the NED in con­junc­tion with William Casey under Ronald Rea­gan; Omid­yar’s spon­sor­ship of Svit­lana Zalis­chuk, a Ukrain­ian MP who is coor­di­nat­ing the inte­gra­tion of Ukraine into NATO; the Wash­ing­ton Post’s ide­o­log­i­cal swing to the far right.


FTR #847 Interview (#10) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

In this broad­cast, we con­tin­ue to “Fol­low the Mon­ey” and ana­lyze its pri­ma­ry role in the per­pet­u­a­tion of Nazism and its atten­dant method­olo­gies and resul­tant ills. Peter notes that the post­war Nazi Under­ground con­sti­tut­ed a “gov­ern­ment-in-exile” and “an army in exile.” “Fol­low­ing the mon­ey” moved by what Mr. Emory calls The Under­ground Reich inevitably leads to Fran­cois Genoud, Hjal­mar Schacht and the exten­sive post­war Nazi con­nec­tions to Mid­dle East­ern anti-colo­nial, anti-Israel and ter­ror­ist milieux. The Third Reich and its post­war under­ground man­i­fes­ta­tion direct­ly impact­ed, inter­sect­ed with, and formed the oper­a­tional tem­plate for, many of the world’s ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tions. Recap­ping pre­vi­ous dis­cus­sion of the Third Reich as a “cult” or spir­i­tu­al move­ment, Peter notes that this “Under­ground Reich” not only is a par­al­lel enti­ty to con­tem­po­rary Islamist ter­ror groups, but has active­ly dove­tailed with them. Pro­gram high­lights include: ter­ror­ists’ abuse of the ancient hawala sys­tem of mon­ey trans­fer; dis­cus­sion of the Bank Al-Taqwa; the use of Islamists against Chi­na; analy­sis of the “Tri-Bor­der” area in Latin Amer­i­ca; Ger­many’s return to pow­er in Europe.


The Assassination of Olof Palme

In our ongo­ing series of inter­views with Peter Lev­en­da, the author of “The Hitler Lega­cy,” we have high­light­ed points of dis­cus­sion relat­ing to WACL, Oper­a­tion Con­dor, the Iran/Contra scan­dal and oth­er ele­ments that might not be famil­iar to recent/younger read­ers and lis­ten­ers. Peter detailed his hair-rais­ing vis­it to Colo­nia Dig­nidad in FTR #839. While going through some box­es in stor­age, we came across an old essay by the bril­liant Dan­ish jour­nal­ist Hen­rik Kruger, author of “The Great Hero­in Coup,” ana­lyz­ing the unsolved 1986 assas­si­na­tion of Swedish prime min­is­ter Olof Palme. We present that arti­cle here, in order to famil­iar­ize younger read­ers and lis­ten­ers with indi­vid­u­als and insti­tu­tions we haven’t cov­ered in decades.

Lithuanian Fascism, Yesterday and Today

Hav­ing become the sec­ond fas­cist coun­try in Europe (in 1925), Lithua­nia is among the EU and NATO coun­tries cel­e­brat­ing its Waf­fen SS units that served the Third Reich. Lithuan­ian fas­cists were nur­tured by West­ern intel­li­gence and were pro­ject­ed into that for­mer Sovi­et repub­lic as part of the desta­bi­liza­tion of the Sovi­et Union. Now, Lithua­nia has resuci­tat­ed the Lithuan­ian Rifle­man’s Union, a para­mil­i­tary unit that col­lab­o­rat­ed with the Third Reich. Along with the Ukrain­ian OUN/B and UPA–the Lithuan­ian Rifle­man’s Union con­tin­ued the com­bat of World War II as gueril­la forces sup­port­ed by the OPC (an ele­ment of U.S. intel­li­gence.)

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.
