Lately so many members are calling other members "Nazi" and I think they do not even know what a "Nazi" is, but just use this term because they are maximally brainwashed by the ruling system, thus I start this thread with Sylvia Stolz about "Nazi":



"The truth must be repeated over and over again,
because error is repeatedly preached among us, not
only by individuals, but by the masses. In periodicals
and cyclopaedias, in schools and universities; every-
where, in fact, error prevails, and is quite easy in the
feeling that it has a decided majority on its side."

My definition of a 'NAZI' is= a Nazi is ANYONE that someone else wants to DEMONISE in the eyes of others! It's the modern version of the old cry of 'LEPER' unclean, unclean! It seems to encompass all the hate and bile that the worn out term 'Racist' could never do! It's the veritable 'poisoned chalice' passed to an enemy to ensure their demise is more or less certain! It's certainly a truism that the victor gets to write the history! :sadno: Sadly there are certain people on every site that love to smear someone with different opinions to themselves by playing the 'Nazi' card! :sadno: This has replaced to a greater extent the old 'racist' card used in the past!

Nazi (also the cognates Nazism and Neo-Nazism) is a political epithet invented by Konrad Heiden (7 August 1901 – 18 June 1966) during the 1920s as a means of denigrating the NSDAP and National Socialism.[1] Heiden was a journalist and member of the Social Democratic Party of Germany, whose mother was a Jewess.

The term is both an imitation of the nickname given to Marxists of the SDP at the time, Sozi, and a political pun similar to the Austro-Bavarian word for "simpleton", derived from the fairly common name Ignatz (German language form of Ignatius). It was then popularised abroad by various Judaics and other subversives, including Heiden himself, who fled the country after the NSDAP were elected to government.

The term was regarded as a derogatory epithet by National Socialists and was used almost exclusively by Marxist agitators. Typically the use of Nazi Germany, and Nazi regime, was popularized by Jewish émigrés from Germany after 1933., especially in English-speaking countries. From them, it spread into other languages.

Wikipedia states that:

“Konrad Heiden (7 August 1901 – 18 June 1966) was aninfluential Jewish journalist and historian of the Weimar Republic and Nazi eras, most noted for the first influential biographies of German dictator Adolf Hitler. Often, he wrote under the pseudonym “Klaus Bredow.”

Heiden was born in Munich, Germany, on 7 August 1901, and graduated from the University of Munich in 1923. His father was a union organizer, while his mother had a Jewish background. At the university, he organized a republican and democratic student body and became a member of the Social Democratic Party.

Heiden was one of the first critical observers of the rise of National Socialism in Germany after he attended a party’s meeting in 1920. He worked for the Frankfurter Zeitungand the Vossischen Zeitung, but became a freelancer in 1932. A year later, he went into exile; first to Saarland, then to Switzerland, then to France, and finally to the United States.

Heiden’s book, “The New Inquisition”, published jointly by Modern Age Books, Inc. and Alliance Book Corporation, inNew York in 1939, with a translation from German by Heinz Norden, includes a series of personal, but necessarilyanonymous accounts by German Jews of violent persecution under the Nazi regime accelerating from the time of the fall of 1938 and an eerie and accurate prediction of the Final Solution planned by the Nazi regime:

To drive 600,000 people by robbery into hunger, by hunger into desperation, by desperation into wild outbreaks, and by such outbreaks into the waiting knife — such is the cooly calculated plan. Mass murder is the goal, a massacre such as history has not seen — certainly not since Tamerlane and Mithridates. We can only venture guesses as to the technical forms these mass executions are to take. In his book Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler suggested that the people to be killed be kept “under poisonous gas”;however, he speaks of a mere twelve to fifteen thousand. Doubtless the destructive instinct in the ruling class of the regime has grown in the meantime…”

There are a number of things there that should immediately send up “RED flags”! But let’s just look at the most blatant distortion of the fact.  As I recently demonstrated with an article from the largest German-Jewish organization in 1933  (at the time when Hitler came to power and when Heiden set about telling his lies)  defended Germany, and said to the world that they were doing fine, and they appealed for end to the atrocity propaganda. By the way, the Jewish population was less than 6oo,000 as Heiden had said.

Now let’s look Adolf Hitler actually did say, and in what context he said it  He was discussing World War I, in which he himself had courageously fought, and had been decorated numerous times for his bravery :

“The fact that the German people carried on the War proved that the Marxist folly had not yet been able to penetrate deeply. But as the War was prolonged German soldiers and workers gradually fell back into the hands of the Marxist leaders, and the number of those who thus relapsed became lost to their country. At the beginning of the War, or even during the War, if twelve or fifteen thousand of these Jews who were corrupting the nation had been forced to submit to poison-gas, just as hundreds of thousands of our best German workers from every social stratum and from every trade and calling had to face it in the field, then the millions of sacrifices made at the front would not have been in vain. On the contrary: If twelve thousand of these malefactors had been eliminated in proper time probably the lives of a million decent men,who would be of value to Germany in the future, might have been saved. But it was in accordance with bourgeois ‘statesmanship’ to hand over, without the twitch of an eyelid, millions of human beings to be slaughtered on the battlefields, while they looked upon ten or twelve thousand public traitors, profiteers, usurers and swindlers, as the dearest and most sacred national treasure and proclaimed their persons to be inviolable. Indeed it would be hard to say what is the most outstanding feature of these bourgeois circles: mental debility, moral weakness and cowardice, or a mere down-at-heel mentality. It is a class that is certainly doomed to go under but, unhappily, it drags down the whole nation with it into the abyss.” (Mein Kampf, James Murphy Translation, 1939, Page 518)  

Do we see the difference? And do we see the deception at work? Do we see the intention to mislead the world at large?

Regarding the camps, Heiden gives no mention to the fact those people being interned in labour camps were subversives. Nor to the fact that these people could be, and were often released back to their communities. I will have more on that, however, in a future post.  Also ignored is the fact that such camps were far more common and horrific in the Soviet Union, with little or no hope of getting out.  And of course, such camps had been invented and used very cruelly by the Brits, and also the American hypocrites too.

This exactly is the moment when you know someone is not a "good Jew".
A gentile opens up his heart and tells the plain truth and the bad Jew jumps in and downright needs to smack him in the face anankasticly .
They hate nothing more than the truth spoken from a pure heart.

To me this was your ultimate proof.

Reds and Radicals In Hollywood

By Jack R. Fischel

Neil Gabler’s book An Empire of Their Own: How the Jews Invented Hollywood (1988) chronicled the story of the eight or nine Jewish immigrants who were the effective founders of the motion picture industry. As a group they were super-patriotic, voted Republican, and were determined to distance themselves from their Jewish origins. The “moguls,” as they have come to be known, alert to the prevailing anti-Semitism that was endemic throughout much of the country in the decade prior to America’s entry into World War II, were sensitive to the potential of motion pictures to indoctrinate, let alone, promote ideas that would challenge existing American values. As a consequence, they maintained tight control over the product they produced lest they be accused of using the movies to influence change in American society. To paraphrase Samuel Goldwyn, when he was criticized for not producing films that dealt with social issues, “if you want messages, go to Western Union.” The moguls believed that the function of movies was to entertain, and not confront the social and political issues that troubled the country during the Depression years, and the subsequent Nazi seizure of power in Germany.

But if the Goldwyns and the Mayers were sensitive to attacks from such watchdogs of public morality as the Catholic Legion of Decency and later Joseph Breen’s Production Code Administration, this was not the case with the Hollywood screenwriters who wrote the scripts for the movies. Some of Hollywood’s most creative scriptwriters were not only Jews, but a number of them were also Communists who followed the directives from the Soviet Union. During the mid-1930’s, they adhered to Moscow’s support for the anti-Fascist Popular Front, in which the Soviet Union suspended its objectives of class war and revolution for cooperation with the capitalist democratic governments of the West against the growing threat of fascism and Nazism. This change in Soviet tactics enabled Communists screenwriters to not only support the New Deal, and ally themselves with political liberals in the fight against the economic royalists, but to also back the Roosevelt administration’s fight in behalf of the have-nots of American society. Some of Hollywood’s finest films, which were written both during and after World War II, incorporated themes of social justice and the fight against fascism. A list of such motion pictures would include Casablanca, Crossfire, Gentleman’s Agreement, and It’s a Wonderful Life. Even the character of Hopalong Cassidy was conceived by its creator, Communist scriptwriter Michael Wilson as an FDR-like character.

Radical Hollywood records the history of these writers, 19 of whom would eventually become “unfriendly” witnesses before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), which first investigated Hollywood in November 1947 and then returned for a second round in 1951. Eventually ten of the writers who refused to testify before HUAC about their political affiliations were blacklisted. They included John Henry Lawson, Dalton Trumbo, Lester Cole, Herbert Biberman, Albert Maltz, Alvah Bessie, Edward Dmytryk, Sam Ornitz, Ring Lardner Jr., and Robert Adrian Scott.

For the reader willing to overlook some stilted prose, Radical Hollywood has its rewards as it surveys the influence of the Left on the making of motion pictures, from silent films to those produced in the post World War II decade. Paul Buhle, the co-author of the Encyclopedia of the American Left, and Dave Wagner, a journalist and film critic, document how many of Hollywood’s most successful films were scripted by writers who were members of the Communist Party, if not sympathetic to leftist politics in general. In focusing on the 19 Hollywood screenwriters who were unfriendly witnesses before HUAC, the authors remind us that 15 of them were Jews. Because of the proportionately large presence of Jews in Hollywood, anti-Semites, as well as some in the Catholic Church, the Hearst press, and the House Un-American Activities Committee, concluded that the movie industry harbored a Jewish conspiracy to undermine “American” values. Although most American Jews eschewed the radical politics of the Left, and only a minority of the Communist Party identified itself as Jewish, the prevailing belief among the political right, especially among Hitler’s admirers in the United States, was that the nexus between Jews and radicalism was inescapable.

The story of the “Hollywood Ten” and the blacklisting of writers who were suspected of being Communists has been told before in many books as well as in film. What is often overlooked, however, is the question whether those who belonged to the Communist Party influenced the making of American films or was their political affiliation incidental to their craft as writers, and, ultimately, did these writers represent a threat to the American way of life? Buehle and Wagner inform us that Communist leaders and intellectuals viewed Hollywood films as escapist products of bourgeois culture, and as a consequence never seriously attempted to influence film content.

Kenneth Lloyd Billingsley, the author of Hollywood Party, has a different take on the efforts of Hollywood’s Communist scriptwriters to promote the Moscow line in films. The author, a journalist who writes for prominent conservative periodicals, argues that radical screenwriters, such as John Howard Lawson, never tried to write an entire pro-Communist film, lest it be censored by the more conservative studio management, but sought to include about five minutes of the Party line in every script. Lawson urged his fellow Party writers to stick the five minute segment in an expensive set with high-priced stars, so that it would be too costly to cut. Thus, if someone like Gary Cooper were given lines that the studio executives found unacceptable, the scene would have to be re-shot at great expense. Hollywood’s Communist writers were also discouraged from displaying initiative in regard to their craft. For example, writers interested in story lines with a psychological approach were forbidden by the Party to script this type of film because its message suggested that illness is not in the social system, but within the individual. Clearly, for Billingsley, Hollywood’s Communist scriptwriters may have been creative artists, but their talents were clearly subordinate to the dictates of the Party.

Following the Party line also meant blocking anti-Communist content in films. Billingsley informs us that the Party recruited story analysts who were positioned to read incoming scripts and reject anti-Communist material. Indeed, there is some support for his contention that despite the documented crimes perpetrated by Stalin, few films have been produced that depict the excesses of the Soviet dictator. The omission becomes even more apparent when one considers that after World War II, Hollywood produced a great many films about Hitler and the evil of the Nazi regime, and almost none about Stalin. Billingsley attributes the absence of films critical of the Soviet Union to the influence of the Hollywood Communists who focused their scripts on Hitler and the Nazis, rather than on the victims of the Gulag, even during the height of the Cold War. Billingsley, however, may be exaggerating the ability of the Communists to dictate the subject of films. After all, from the moguls, to those who fought the “Reds” within the Hollywood community (see, for example, the 1955 anti-Communist film Trial which was written by Don Mankiewicz), it was never easy for Communist writers to easily promote the Party line in the scripts that they wrote for the screen. The number of films about the Nazis, therefore, may be attributable to the fact that the country had just fought a war against the Third Reich, and as the public became aware of the atrocities perpetrated by the Hitler regime, audiences responded to movies that depicted the Nazi excesses that culminated in the Holocaust. A list of Hollywood films about Nazi Germany would reveal that the genre actually commenced following America’s entry in World War II.

During the period from the Nazi seizure of power in 1933 to the outbreak of World War II, Hollywood’s Jewish moguls shied away from making films that depicted the Nazi persecution of Jews. Perhaps fearing a backlash from the isolationists or the mogul’s own sensitivity that such scripts would call attention to their Jewish origins, Hollywood simply did not address issues relating to Germany or the Jews, even during the years of the Popular Front. This was also true among Jewish Leftists, who avoided writing scripts dealing with Hitler’s treatment of the Jews (especially after the Hitler-Stalin pact which lasted from August 1939 to June 1941), let alone about Stalin’s Russia. Only two films prior to our entry into the war,Confessions of a Nazi Spy (1939), and Charlie Chaplin’s The Great Dictator (1940), dealt with the threat of Nazism, and marginally mention the persecution of the Jews.

Between 1941 and 1945 the United States and the Soviet Union were allies, and the Roosevelt administration called on Hollywood to make pro-Soviet films. The release of the controversial pro-Stalinist film Mission to Moscow (1943), and North Star (1943), had less to do with the efforts of Communists to glorify the Soviet regime than the president’s wish that the films be made to bolster public support for our Russian ally. Subsequently, to hype the war, Hollywood, made a great many films that depicted the evils of the Nazi regime.


Following the end of World War II, the Party line required American Communists to end their cooperation with the forces of capitalism, and resume the objectives of class struggle and revolution. Billingsley dates the 1945 directive from Moscow as the true origin of the Cold War, nearly a year before Churchill’s Iron Curtain speech which he presented in Fulton Missouri in March 1946. The response of Hollywood’s Communists to the new Party line remains a controversial episode in the history of the culture of the Cold War. Following the end of the war, a large number of films that dealt with social issues such as anti-Semitism, racism, and inequities in American society were made by the Hollywood studios whose scripts were written by Leftists. This brought about a Congressional investigation that sought to uncover the influence of communism in the film industry. The refusal of the “Hollywood Ten” to answer HUAC’s questions about their political affiliations, made them heroes among the Hollywood Left, if not righteous victims of a Congressional Committee which was characterized as consisting of right-wing zealots and anti-Semites, who were determined to deprive the unfriendly witnesses of their basic Constitutional rights. Others in Hollywood, however, viewed Communists, such as John Henry Lawson, and Henry Biberman as agents of the Soviet Union who insidiously used their talents to promote the Moscow line in their films. These two views are complicated by the fact that in many instances, the objectives of both the Party and political liberals were not that far apart. On issues of race, for example, the Communists had been promoting the cause of equality since the 1930’s. Following the desegregation decision in the Brown case in 1954, which precipitated the Civil Rights Movement, the struggle for racial equality was supported by Communists and liberals alike. Under these circumstances, it was not difficult for radical screenwriters to provide scripts that depicted the evils of racism. In fact, left-wing screenwriters had already established a record of creating African-American characters in their scripts that elevated the stereotype of blacks in films. In films such as Huckleberry Finn(1939), Casablanca (1942) and In This Our Life (1942), black images were far removed from those of the happy and superstitious darky, the catering maid, the comical thief, or the shuffling and lazy Stepin Fetchit, Sambo like Negro. Similarly, Party stalwart Herbert Biberman’s 1953 film, Salt of the Earth, which dealt with striking New Mexico mineworkers, and also included a pro-feminist viewpoint, was viewed by right-wingers as a motion picture that promoted the Communist line. But the themes dealt with in the film would become commonplace among liberal film-makers in the next decade.

Both books under review agree that the Hollywood Ten, and the “unfriendly nineteen” emerged as heroes in Hollywood history. The friendly witnesses, and those who “named names” before HUAC, such as Elia Kazan, consequently, were depicted as the villains in the drama that unfolded during the so-called “witch-hunts” of the McCarthy era. The authors disagree, however, on the significance of Hollywood’s Communists on the film industry. Both Buhle and Wagner contend that the personal and political beliefs of the leftist film-makers made no indelible political marks on American values, but did make a decisive impact on the golden age of American film. Some of America’s most popular films, such asThe Maltese Falcon, and Lassie Come Home, were scripted by Hollywood Communists, who also contributed to the genre known as film noir. Furthermore, many of their movies went well beyond entertainment, and elevated film to a serious art form which conveyed deep truths to audiences about morality, justice and injustice.

Billingsley argues that Hollywood’s Communist screenwriters were able to cast themselves as martyrs by refusing to answer questions before HUAC, but at the same time cleverly disguised their agenda which was to prevent Hollywood from dealing with the atrocities of the Soviet system. The author notes that not a single Hollywood film has dealt with the Ukraine famine, the Moscow trials, the Zhdanov purges, the Hungarian uprising against the Soviets nor any other of the many acts of oppression that characterize Soviet history. The Communists, Billingsley writes, realized that a film that had as its subject the atrocities of communism, in which anti-Communists are heroes, might lead some to conclude, post facto, that HUAC was right, and “it would violate the legend of the blacklist.” Billingsley concludes that in the area of film content, the Party won.

"The truth must be repeated over and over again,
because error is repeatedly preached among us, not
only by individuals, but by the masses. In periodicals
and cyclopaedias, in schools and universities; every-
where, in fact, error prevails, and is quite easy in the
feeling that it has a decided majority on its side."

~ J. W. v. Goethe
