Adolf Hitler and the Army of Mankind

     Page nineteen. We've come a long way. If you've followed these pages from the beginning then I applaud you. It's been a long crazy journey through these bloody and dark pages of hidden truths. Our eyes have been opened and they can never fool us again. The dead patriots, fighters for truth, martyrs and murdered victims cheer us on from behind the veil. We, together, somehow found their well-hidden mass graves. We clawed the dirt and uncovered their bones, their skeletal hands clutching truth. The truth of a worldwide plot, as President Kennedy said, 'There's a plot in this country to enslave every man, woman, and child.' The truth about World War Two and most of the wars that preceded it and came after it. Uncomfortable truths that made us question our very existence. The truth of WWII is the mother of all hidden truths.

They didn't hide the bodies of WWII good enough. The stench of the lies they used to cover them exposed them. The murdered dead shifted uncomfortably beneath the earth and our shovels brought them to the light.

We can never go back. We wouldn't want to go back. We stand eternally defiant to their lies and we refuse to be their slaves. We are the Army of Mankind, not with guns or bombs, but with golden shovels!

'Millions of my fellow Americans, British, French and others of our racial comrades, all as ignorant as I once was, were slaughtered and maimed fighting for these same two filthy gangs of Zionists and Bolsheviks. The Weltfeind cringes like the Devil at the sign of the cross. Your mighty spirit has inspired millions with the Holy Truth. From all over the earth, faintly at first, comes the sound of marching boots — louder and louder they grow! Listen! They are singing! "Die Fahne Hoch! Die Reihen fest geschlossen!" Out of the mud and slime of lies, your holy red, white and black Swastika has been flung back into the skies in Virginia, United States of America, and we pledge you our lives, Adolf Hitler, that we shall not flag or fail until we have utterly destroyed the forces of Marxism and darkness. HEIL HITLER!'
-George Lincoln Rockwell, dedication to Adolf Hitler from his book 'This Time the World'.

  • George Lincoln Rockwell (March 9,1918 - August 25,1967) is one of the most interesting, complex and daunting men I've ever profiled.

    A poet, artist, philosopher, soldier, revolutionary, author and fighter.

    He is also widely misunderstood. Why?

    This is due largely in part to his shock tactics of propaganda, which was meant to gather media attention and interest in his cause. To shock people out of their stupor and open their eyes to the truth.

    Rockwell is unique on these pages because he fought against Germany and Japan in WWII. A Navy Commander, he believed in the USA's fight against Germany until one day when everything changed.

    [Above: George Lincoln Rockwell in Navy uniform.]

    His entire being went through such a tremendous reversal that it changed his life forever.

    On March 15, 1941, Rockwell signed up as an aviation cadet in the United States Naval Reserve (USNR). After completing training in March 1942 he was commissioned an Ensign. During his service he served in the Atlantic and Pacific theatres of war. During this time he was part of an Allied operation off the coast of Africa where he helped sink two Axis U-boats. Some years later he would lament the bombing of Axis targets during the war. By the end of WWII he held the rank of Lieutenant Commander. But he had yet to realize that he had indeed fought the wrong enemy.

    He was recalled back to service during the Korean War in 1950. He served in a training capacity at the Naval Air Base in Coronado, California, until 1952, when he was attached to Fleet Aircraft Service Squadron 107.

    This brought him to serve in Iceland, where he attained the rank of Commander. He was in inactive duty status until 1957, when he would run into trouble with the Navy for his political beliefs. He was brought before a hearing to answer charges that he be discharged from the Naval Reserve. The 'crime' was his association with 'Nazi-type' groups and the high crime of having 'race and religious hatred', among other idiotic charges.

    Predictably, he was 'honorably' discharged from the Navy. So much for his serving in three theaters of war and putting his life on the line for years for his country over and over again. None of that suddenly mattered. So much for freedom and democracy. It never existed in the first place.

    [Above: Rockwell with his children and Icelandic second wife, Thora, in 1958.]

    Rockwell's time in California in 1952 with the military was one of the most important years of his life. He began to be interested in politics after witnessing the media's biased treatment of Senator Joseph McCarthy and General Douglas MacArthur. It was his first conscious brush with Jewish power. The hidden hand was finally revealed.

    Like all men and women who suddenly learn the truth about who pulls the strings and triggers of this world, Rockwell searched high and low for more knowledge and information. He haunted the public libraries, devouring books that led him to find that the Jews invented and implemented communism. That indeed 'communism is Judaism'. In his own words he had finally awakened from'thirty years of stupid political sleep.' He suddenly became aware of an international Jewish conspiracy to 'quietly conquer and subdue the world'.

    Fate eventually led him to a bookstore in San Diego and to a copy of Adolf Hitler's 'Mein Kampf'. It would be the biggest, most profound and life changing experience of his life. He later explained that it was 'it was the end of one Lincoln Rockwell, the 'nice guy,'— the dumb 'Goy;--and the beginning of an entirely different person.'

    [Above: Rockwell would later refer to Mein Kampf as 'mental sunshine'.]

    He wrote with an almost religious pride that:

    'Mein Kampf was like finding part of me... In Mein Kampf I found abundant "mental sunshine" which bathed all the grey world suddenly in the clear light of reason and understanding. Word after word, sentence after sentence stabbed into the darkness like thunderclaps and lightning bolts of revelation, tearing and ripping away the cobwebs of more than thirty years of darkness - brilliantly illuminating "mysteries" of the heretofore impenetrable murk in a world gone mad.'
    -George Lincoln Rockwell, This Time the World, pg. 154, ©1961

    It was the most important book - the most important thing - in his entire life. Its truth would take hold of him and command him to fight his entire life, and to ultimately die for spreading its divine message. Rockwell couldn't put Mein Kampf down. He read it every chance he got. He reread it and marked important passages. 'I studied it, I thought about it, I wondered at the utter, indescribable genius of it.
    How could the world not only ignore such a book, but damn it and curse it and hate it and pretend that it was a plan for "conquering the world" - when it was the most obvious and rational plan for SAVING the world ever written?
    I reread and studied it some more. Slowly, bit by bit, I began to understand. I realized that National Socialism, the iconoclastic world-view of Adolf Hitler, was the doctrine of scientific, racial idealism - actually a new "religion" for our times.'

    This new George Lincoln Rockwell did what all of us do when we first discover the truth about this world: he relentlessly learned as much as he could and sought others who knew the truth. Both difficult things to do in the 1950s. Until the internet it was exceedingly difficult to find information about things. But Rockwell was well on his path. He experienced another common denominator in one who embraced the forbidden truth -- the loss of his family. His father, brother and sister refused to talk to him. Only his mother still spoke with him. It was a sacrifice many of us are forced to make. So be it!

    First he searched for a group he could be a part of and help fight. In 1956 he did editorial work for the former publisher of the 'American Mercury' magazine. With a newly met comrade he planned to forge a new group, but it failed to materialize.

    During this time he had a lot of trouble finding income. He attempted various ventures, and although some were successful, like a magazine he founded, but nothing was really panned out in the end. He was an extremely gifted artist and writer, this landed him employment multiple times, but his beliefs ultimately severed him from his employers.

    Rockwell understood early that whatever he did his enemies were going to call him a 'Nazi', so he decided not to try to disguise his beliefs, instead he would go full throttle. But how and where and with who? His path continued...

    In 1958 he paired with an individual that was both wealthy and looking for someone of Rockwell's talents. The two took up residence in Virginia and Rockwell began to create and print material to wake up others. The partnership eventually crumbled and in 1959 he founded what would be the American Nazi Party (ANP). He would go alone into the darkness, armed with the truth, come what may.

    [Above: Commander Rockwell with his signature corncob pipe.]

    The formation of the American Nazi Party resulted in the forfeiting of his military pension. For their personal safety he was forced to send his family back to Iceland. This would be some of the darkest days Rockwell would ever face. The loneliness ate him alive, while he fought in the courts, was jobless because of his name, was abandoned by so-called comrades and everyday came home to a cold, empty house. But these dark months of 1959 would be some of the most important days of his life. He would find Adolf Hitler, and also, find himself. He describes his pain and realizations succinctly:
    'Unlike the millions of my fellow "right-wingers" I had become a hardened and determined revolutionary, destined either to achieve the aims of which they only talked, or die. As I sat alone in that empty house, or lay alone in that even emptier bed in the silent, hollow darkness, the full realization of what I was about bore in upon me with fearful urgency. I realized there was no turning back - as long as I lived, I was marked with the stigma of anti-Jewishness.'
    -George Lincoln Rockwell, This Time the World, pg. 308, ©1961

    During the days that followed Rockwell was given a National Socialist swastika flag in the mail from a comrade. He considered it a 'stroke of destiny'. A sign post, urging him on his way, a sliver of light, guiding him home. He took it and hung it on his living room wall. In the center he mounted a plaque of Adolf Hitler and set three candles in front of it on a bookcase. He described it as a 'holy altar' to Adolf Hitler, saying:

    ' I closed the blinds, lit the candles, and stood before my new altar. For the first time since I had lost my Christian religion, I experienced the soul-thrilling upsurge of emotion which is denied to our modern, sterile, atheist "intellectuals" which literally moved the earth for countless centuries: "religious experience". I stood there in the flickering candlelight, not a sound in the house, not a soul near me or aware of what I was doing - or caring.
    But as I looked at the stern face of the greatest mind in twenty centuries, I felt the unbelievable flood of "religious" power pouring into me which would be easily understood by any savage Indian standing on a mountain top at sunrise and communing with the Great Spirit before battle - but which the intellectuals have denied themselves because of their conceit that they can "know" everything.
    I recalled the words of the Leader, "When human hearts break, and human souls despair, the great vanquishers of distress and care, of shame and misery, of intellectual unfreedom and physical duress look down upon them from the twilight of the past, and hold out their eternal hands to faint-hearted mortals. Woe to the people that are ashamed to grasp them!".
    I was moved beyond the power of words to describe. Goose-pimples rose all over me, my hair stood on end, my eyes filled with tears of love and gratitude for this greatest of all conquers of human misery and shame, and my breath came in little gasps. If I had not known that the Leader would have scorned such adulation, I might have fallen to my knees in unashamed worship - but instead I draw myself to attention, raised my arm in the eternal salute of the ancient Roman legions, and repeated the holy words, "HEIL HITLER!" - meaning every tiny syllable with all my heart and mind and soul.'

    -George Lincoln Rockwell, This Time the World, pg. 309, ©1961

    [Above: Commander Rockwell standing before the holy banner of Adolf Hitler.]

    In February 1959 George Lincoln Rockwell and six others met at his residence in Arlington, Virginia. They began by printing a program which warned of the menace of Judeo-communism. It spoke of seven 'absolute and timeless truths':

    1) ' honest man can never be happy in a naked scramble for material gain and comfort...'
    2) '...society can function successfully... only as an organism...'
    3) ' makes a genuine progress only when he approaches Nature humbly and applies her eternal laws...'
    4) '...struggle is the vital element of all evolutionary progress and the very essence of life...'
    5) ' man is entitled to the services and products of the labor of his fellow man,
    unless he contributes at least an equal amount of goods or services of his own production or invention...'

    6) ' is to the advantage of society to see that every honest man has freedom and opportunity to achieve his maximum potentials...'
    7) '...Adolf Hitler was the gift of an inscrutable Providence to a world on the brink of Jewish-Bolshevik catastrophe...'

    [Above: Commander Rockwell at a news conference with Party newspaper in hand.]

    Despite his public image and the media's propaganda, Rockwell wished to work with American blacks to achieve segregation and separation. In particular he and the Nation of Islam shared the same goals.

    'In 1962 he attended a Nation of Islam convention in Chicago, heaping praise on black separatist Elijah Muhammad as "the Adolph Hitler of the Black Man." '
    -When Hate Came to Town: New Orleans' Jews and George Lincoln Rockwell, pg. 393, Lawrence N. Powell, 1997

    Rockwell himself wrote of his thoughts on America's blacks in his first book:

    'I discovered, as we had suspected, that millions of Negroes wanted to return to Africa -- with fair treatment -- but were being silenced and prevented from doing so by the same gang of Jews who wanted their cheap labor, the hockshop and installment plan customers, rent-payers and voters which the Blacks were swindled into furnishing them. At the same time, the Jews were agitating viciously against both Blacks and Whites to mix and destroy our White America.
    Most amazing of all, we discovered that four million Negroes, believe it or not, had signed a petition to go back to Africa, even without the decent program we propose, and this fact was suppressed and the leader of the movement, Marcus Garvey, thrown in jail!
    I began to go to Negro hang-outs to learn at firsthand, on the Negroes' home ground, how they feel. I openly told them they were inferior biologically, that we were ready to fight to the death to stop all race-mixing, but that we owed them a fair shake. Indeed, I proved to them the sincerity of our desire to help them out of the mess of phony 'tolerance' and 'brotherhood' which was and is leading only to chaos and bloody violence between our races. Since this was written, we have established contact with Elijah Muhammad's Black Muslims, who will inevitably win American Negroes with their inspiring and much misrepresented movement.'
    George Lincoln Rockwell, pg. 141, This Time the World, ©1961

    [Above: Elijah Muhammad.]

    Rockwell attended two rallies of the Nation of Islam, as Elijah Muhammad's guest. One at Uline Arena in Washington on June 25, 1961 and the other at the Chicago International Amphitheater on February 25, 1962. Rockwell went on to describe his deep appreciation and respect for Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad:

    'That is the reason why any effort toward a real solution to the Negro problem is hounded and driven out of existence by the Jews -- as Marcus Garvey was thrown into jail and his movement broken up.
    But, just as the Jewish outrages always produce a counter-force among the Whites, as they did in Germany, Italy, Spain, etc., and as they are doing in the USA now -- so they have at last produced a real leader among the Negro people, Elijah Muhammad, head of the "Black Muslims."
    I am aware that Mr. Muhammad at one time preached massacre of the Whites. I can't say that I blame him. Were I a Negro, I would feel the same way. But Mr. Muhammad was, and is, faced with the same problems as we are -- total hostility by the Jews and all their satellites, including the government. The Jewish press does its' best to ignore him, while writing paeans of praise and adulation for the "black" organizations and activities led by Jews, such CORE and NAACP. Under the circumstances and remembering the simple hearts, ignorance, and sorely oppressed status of most of the Negro people, he may be forgiven any kind of preaching necessary to gain the strength to do something constructive to solve the problem, just as we have to use some pretty powerful methods to outwit the Jew press liars ourselves.
    But Elijah Muhammad has taken a million or more of the lowest kind of people on earth-lazy, drunken, dirty, filthy-mouthed, nasty-minded black bums and criminals, the repulsive creatures called "niggers" -- and turned them into disciplined, self-respecting, sober, hard-working, courteous, clean-talking and clean people. Let the White men who tax me with being a "nigger lover" for respecting Elijah Muhammad show me the White leader today who has demonstrated any such masterful ability to lead!
    As Muhammad has grown in wisdom and stature, he has also become more moderate and statesman-like in his program and demands. He knows how the Jews are using and abusing his people and he does not fear to say so, like so many of the Southern Whites who damn me for praising Muhammad and then whisper in the most cowardly manner about the "shhhhhh! 'j-e-w-s' ".
    He used to demand American territory for his Negro nation. And I will say that, if there were no other way of solving the Negro problem and the alternative was the mongrelization of the White race, which is inevitable if the present mix-pressures are continued, I would even be willing to give the Negroes an area of their own in America...'
    -George Lincoln Rockwell, pg. 191, This Time the World, ©1961

    [Above: Commander Rockwell, the fire of God and Adolf Hitler in his blood.]

    Commander Rockwell also spoke about his views on the American Negro and race in interviews:
    'I think that the negroes who have done nothing wrong in my opinion... they did no wrong by coming here, we dragged them here and I think we owe them something. I think we owe them a chance in their own nation in Africa... I believe in race, I'm not ashamed to admit it at all. And that doesn't mean one bit that I'm out to persecute or hurt any man because of his race, he can't help what race he is. We believe that each race has particular geniuses and particular faults.'

    Rockwell told reporters he considered the Muslims 'black Nazis' and said 'I am fully in concert with their program and I have the highest respect for Mr. Elijah Muhammad.' Rockwell met with Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad...

    'On February 25, 1962, I stood up in full Nazi uniform before 12,500 Black Muslims and gave an all-out speech calling for the geographical separation of the races, with America's "foreign aid" going to our own Negro people rather than to Red and "neutralist" nations which hate us, shoot up and imprison our citizens and spit in our faces.

    Again and again my speech was interrupted by applause and cheers from these thousands of Black men and women who, we are told in our Jew-ized press, are "hate" people, bent on murder and massacre. At the end, I gave a Nazi salute and shouted "Heil Hitler!"—and got first applause, and then some boos.

    Then a rich, well-fed Negro with a Phi Bete key dangling from his gold watch got up and said he was from the NAACP. He raved and ranted at Elijah Muhammad for allowing me to speak. He got so worked up he began to scream unintelligibly, so that nobody could even understand a word he said! His face was PURPLE with HATE, all the while he was blasting the Muslims and the Nazis for being "hate people."

    Following him, a man who said he was an Arab, but whom I suspect was a Jew, got up and told the WORST lies I have ever heard. He told that audience of Black Men that Africa had been full of goose-stepping Nazis before the War, and that these awful Nazis marched all over Africa torturing and murdering innocent Negroes! Some of the audience believed him and applauded these horrible lies.

    I wondered what Elijah Muhammad would say about all this. Every other leader in America had RUN AWAY from me when I stood up and told the simple TRUTH. Now they were calling this Black Leader a "Nazi" for letting me tell the SAME TRUTH HE IS PREACHING. What would he do?

    The Honorable Elijah Muhammad stood up, and hush fell over the vast sea of people. Then this black leader showed why he is destined to lead the Black people out of bondage and into their OWN DIGNITY AND FREEDOM.

    "The German Nazis are not Hypocrites!," he said, (he meant American Nazis) "-they tell you the truth! The White Man does not want to mix! And the Black Man wants to be HIMSELF, not somebody else. HE does not want to MIX! Only the boot-licking so called 'Negro' comes to another race begging to 'mix'! I TAKE MY HAT OFF TO ANY WHITE MAN WHO WANTS TO STAY WHITE!"

    "Why should you not applaud this White Man for telling you the same truths I tell you?" asked this courageous Black Leader—and he was swamped with ten thousand cheers.

    Here was the most smashing, dramatic possible refutation of the Jew lie that the Muslims and Nazis are "hate" groups; here was the leader who was supposed to want to kill all white men actually praising and "taking his hat off" to not only a white man but an ALL-OUT white man fighting for the survival and dignity of the White Race.

    In case this seems too much to believe, here are some clippings from the Muslim's newspaper Muhammad Speaks [photographic reproduction of portion of article from April 1962 (Vol. 1, No. 6) issue of Muhammad Speaks follows this article]. (Please note that the Mr. Mackwell he refers to is the big NAACP leader in Chicago and the "German Nazis" he mentions is actually us—the American Nazi Party.)'
    -George Lincoln Rockwell, 'Black Muslims Hear U.S. Nazi', The Rockwell Report, April 1, 1962.

    [Above: Commander Rockwell and ten of his comrades attended the Nation of Islam meeting at the Chicago International Amphitheater on February 25, 1962.]

    Commander Rockwell and ten of his troopers attended a Black Muslim rally on February 25, 1962. Rockwell and the American Muslim leader Elijah Muhammad shared similar views in respect to racial segregation and sought ways to work together. Rockwell reverently called Elijah Muhammad the 'Hitler of the black man'. At the 1962 'Savior's Day' celebration in Chicago Rockwell addressed the Nation of Islam members. 8,000 black Muslims attended the meeting.

    Rockwell told the audience they had been getting a 'raw deal' in America and that it was the fault of the Jews for 'exploiting your people and my people.' He asked the audience if Negro organizations needed Jewish leadership to which the audience shouted 'NO!'

    Rockwell continued:

    'You know that we call you niggers. But wouldn't you rather be confronted by honest white men who tell you to your face what the others all say behind your back? Can you really gain anything dealing with a bunch of cowardly white sneaks? The yellow-liberals who tell you they love you, privately exclude you every way they know how. I am not afraid to stand here and tell you I hate race-mixing and will fight it to the death. But at the same time, I will do everything in my power to help the Honorable Elijah Muhammad carry out his inspired plan for land of your own in Africa. Elijah Muhammad is right--separation!' Some of the audience booed and heckled him as he spoke, but Elijah Muhammad and his top aides applauded enthusiastically.

    Elijah Muhammad later spoke about Rockwell and the event in the April 1962 issue of Muhammad Speaks:

    'Mr. Rockwell has spoken well. He has lived up to his name. He is not asking you and me to follow him. He endorsed the stand for self that you and I are taking. Why should you not applaud? No other white people wants you to do such a thing. His own people will hurt him or try to hurt him, you heard what he said, just because they have taken a stand to see that you be separated to get justice and freedom... What right have you to sit there and hold your hand when you know he is telling the truth. No, the trouble of it is you are scared to death! You don't want the white slave master to say 'I heard that you were there listening and enjoying the German Nazis or the White Circle leader.' What do we care if they are white? If they are speaking the truth for us, what do we care? We'll stand on our heads and applaud!'

    [Above: African-American racialists and white National Socialists, side by side, in an attempt to work together against the enemy of mankind.]

    Rockwell coined the term 'White Power' after a debate in 1966 with Black Panther Stokely Carmichael, altering the phrase 'Black Power'. He described a future race war, if segregation was not achieved, where 'the uniform would be skin color.'

    During the following years entire countries would ban Rockwell from entering, such as Canada and England. Although Rockwell's savvy proved too much for these countries' border security, and he entered them anyway. In fact in November 1964 Rockwell arrived in Canada to speak at the University of British Columbia. He later joked that he disguised himself as a bearded rabbi when crossing the border!

    By this time Rockwell's American Nazi Party was growing into an international organization, with small groups spread all over the globe. 'Democratic and free' West Germany expressly banned the importation of his organization's leaflets and other written material (the same goes for Gary Lauck, but this didn't stop him from covering Europe with an untold thousands of leaflets!).

    [Above: Commander Rockwell and the boys of the American Nazi Party.]

    Rockwell's over-the-top style was explained by Dr. William Pierce:

    'His aim, he said, was to make people pay attention to his simple core message of the need for rebuilding a White, Jew-free America based on the principles laid down by Adolf Hitler in Mein Kampf. When he had tried to present that message in a sober, serious way, no one had paid any attention to him. The newspapers and television stations wouldn't send reporters to his press conferences, they ignored his press releases, and the public didn't even know he existed. But as soon as he raised the Swastika banner, the news media went crazy and swarmed all over him. He was seen on all the TV channels and what he said was reported in the newspapers.'

    Rockwell knew it would be a bloody, up hill battle but it was a battle in which there was no choice. It was literally for the life or death of the white race. He theorized:

    'I will not have a mass organization until there is an economic catastrophe... Not until the people are poor. You can't make a revolutionary out of a guy with two cars and an electric lawn mower and a fur toilet seat.'

    The zombies of this world are content as long as sports are on their television and beer is in their refrigerator. The brain-dead populace would justify their cowardice by saying 'I have a family to think about' and 'I might lose my job!' But what good will any of this be if their race is dead and dying around them? This selfishness is all too common in this materialistic, brainwashed world. People are enjoying the relative ease of this new Babylon. Degeneracy has become a popular hobby and something pursued with relish.

    In Commander Rockwell's America things would have been different. During the inevitable chaos he planned on entering the political system and placing American Nazi Party members in key positions. He himself envisioned himself as one day becoming the President of the United States.

    Rockwell and his comrades in the ANP circulated thousands of flyers in their time. They printed his 1961 book 'This Time the World' on their own antiquated printing press. They also released a newspaper monthly called 'The Rockwell Report'. In addition to this they also released a magazine called 'The Stormtrooper'. The ANP also released various records of both music and speeches by Rockwell. He also published National Socialist World in 1966, edited by Dr. William Pierce.

    [Above: National Socialist World, Spring 1966. Note the inclusion of Savitri Devi's The Lightning and the Sun.]

    Commander Rockwell and Savitri Devi corresponded through letters from 1960 until his death in 1967 and had a great deal of respect for one another. Savitri sent many of her books to Rockwell from India, including The Lightning and the Sun, which Rockwell called ' of those rare jewels of knowledge and understanding, like Mein Kampf...'. Another book she sent to him, Pilgrimage, he wrote to her that it '...brought tears to my eyes and a lump in my throat.' He went on to praise her, writing '...In all my experience of the world, and all my studies and reading, I have never found a feminine writer who could reach the profoundest depths and heights of thought with powerful and penetrating original ideas—without being obnoxiously masculine. You have done this thing, and, were you the rankest Communist, which, thank God you are not, I would still salute you for the masterful performance.' Rockwell received these books during a period of profound loneliness, he was separated from his family, who were moved to Iceland at the time. He went on to describe how much they meant to him in his letter back to Savitri: 'I have lost my dear wife and family, all comfort and everything most people consider the "essence" of life. But in some measure, these things were made up to me as I read passages of your Pilgrimage. I do not know you and may never meet you—but I have shared with you an Olympian experience worth all the petty affairs of the world a thousand times over, and denied to all but dedicated NAZIS and those who know the soul of the Great Man.'

    In another letter he further described his thoughts on The Lightning and the Sun to Savitri: '...analysis of the creative forces which reappear cyclically to rescue humanity hurling itself into the abyss is superb, masterful, and I could not more heartily agree that Adolf Hitler is the greatest of these historical giants who reappear recurrently in the human pageant.
    Further, I agree that Hitler embodied mostly "Sun" to use your own term. If he made any mistakes it was failing to incorporate enough "Lightning" in his movement. He was, in my opinion, almost a Jesus-like figure, compared to the Draconian role he had to play. He was also so far above me and everybody else I gave ever known or experienced in intellect, spirit, and pure genius that I cringe with shame to presume to pose myself anywhere near this God-like figure, yet the course of events, the failure of anybody else to assume the task, and my own uncontrollable will to drive forward for a Hitlerite world with every fiber of my being, forced me to assume the role you have described so masterfully in The Lightning and the Sun.'

    Savitri wrote him back and went on to say about him '...I could sing and dance for joy at the idea that there are people like you.'

    [Above: The Cotswold Agreement took place in August 1962 at the National Socialist conference in Gloucestershire, England.

    Rockwell was extremely prolific, speaking at ANP rallies all over America, from Washington D.C. and beyond. His comrades later remarked that he was one of the bravest men they had ever met. He had no fear when being outnumbered by his enemies. He would speak anywhere, before any hostile crowd, despite bomb threats and armies of hecklers. At one college campus, one of many he spoke at, he remarked 'If I can win even a small group... in each college, I can win the youth.'

    His Stormtroops and he picketed far and wide, gaining much needed publicity in the process. They made their presence known at places like civil right demonstration, movie theaters, college campuses, communist meetings, embassies and even the visits of foreign dignitaries.

    Membership in the American Nazi Party was said to be anywhere from 100 to 700 members. Rockwell commented on this by saying, 'We're not a mass movement yet. I'm building up an officer corps of counter-revolutionaries. Every one of our people is required to be ready to die for what he believes in and might just do that, and more. Lots of them go to jail. Almost all of them. As a result, you don't find too many people who want to dabble in that kind of politics.' Rockwell also speculated that there were about 12,000 people who '...actively sympathize, write to us and sometimes help us. In addition to that... I think there are about 10 million Americans that are mighty grateful that we are operating.'

    There are many today, as in Rockwell's time, who say by using the swastika it scares away people who could be potentially receptive to the message. But the swastika and everything it represents for us is our power and our rallying cry. There is no shame or evil associated with the swastika. For us it is magical and holy, and nothing the enemy can do, no lies or slander, will ever change that. We must teach the world the truth about the swastika, Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich, instead of hiding it. Rockwell wrote about his thoughts on the matter:

    'Therefore, even if all the tactical reasons for the use of the Swastika did not exist, I should still have decided to stand forth with that deadly insignia emblazoned on my shield as I hurled my challenge at the Destroyers of Mankind. I am, and must be, above all things, the Apostle of Adolf Hitler, who was the greatest world savior in two thousand years. I must, like Saint Paul before me, now spread what I once misunderstood, hated, and fought. I must, like the early Christians, drive out the "evil spirits" of materialism, greed, selfishness, short-sightedness and cowardice, and stand defiant, even in the midst of the "lions of the Coliseum", if that be my fate, to give the world once more that "Polar Star" of direction, purpose, hope, loyalty and love which can no longer by supplied by the infiltrated religions.'
    -George Lincoln Rockwell

    We must also understand that no matter what we say or do our enemy will label us as 'Nazis' anyway. Ultimately it matters not if the masses are still afraid of the swastika. It is not the mass of humanity whom turn the wheels of history, but the few, dedicated and fanatics amongst us. Rockwell goes on:

    'By being a Nazi, with the Swastika, I would also gather the only kind of people I wanted around me: the tough, dedicated idealists ready to fight for those ideals and give their lives, if necessary. And even more important, I would automatically scare off the millions of blabber-mouths, cowards, fools and crackpots which infest the rest of the 'movement'. The Swastika would probably not bring me many supporters, but those who came would be men.'
    -George Lincoln Rockwell

    Rockwell had become the leader people were waiting for, that we still impatiently wait for today. His tireless work and sacrifices were gaining the love and respect he deserved from his comrades and the sympathy and support of countless ordinary people. He was also earning the hate and fear of his enemies. But this was all part of the struggle, and as Adolf Hitler said:

    'Anyone who picks up a Jewish newspaper in the morning and does not see himself slandered in it has not made profitable use of the previous day.'
    -Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, Vol. 1, Ch. 12

    'Every Jewish slander and every Jewish lie is a scar of honor on the body of our warriors.
    The man they insult the most is closest to us in spirit and the man they have a mortal hatred for is our best friend.'

    -Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf

    George Lincoln Rockwell and his American Nazi Party were gaining a position and momentum that he had chased for years. After losing his family, his military pension and career, after countless arrests, beatings, betrayals, political setbacks and even an assassination attempt, Rockwell stood defiant, ready for anything.

    But what exactly happened next has never truly been proven and there are many theories and opinions. Was Rockwell murdered by one of his own (as the official story goes)? Was he set up from within his organization (how did the assassin know where he was that day?)? Was the government or a Jewish organization involved? This is what we do know...

    August 25, 1967, was a day like any other. Rockwell found himself doing laundry at the Econowash Laundromat at the Dominion Hills Shopping Center in the 6000 block of Wilson Boulevard in Arlington, Virginia. A woman named Ruby Pierce, a stranger to Rockwell, was the last living person to speak with him. She recalled his last moments:

    'He put his clothes in each tub, those two tubs, and then he got his detergent and he started the machine and said, "Oh, I forgot something." I don't know whether he said he forgot the detergent or what. He said, "I forgot something." And then he went out. And I took my clothes over and put them in the dryer. And it didn't cross -- never for one moment did I know this is Rockwell. And then the assistant to the proprietor of the Laundromat came in and said that Rockwell's been shot.'

    Rockwell had got into his 1958 Chevrolet when two bullets pierced his windshield. The car rolled slowly backward and stopped. Commander Rockwell, mortally wounded, stepped from the car and pointed upward to his assassin on the shopping center roof. He then collapsed to the hard pavement, never to rise again. The survivor of two wars and countless street battles, lay motionless as his glorious life poured from his body.

    One bullet had struck him and ripped through several major arteries just above his heart. His remarkable 49 years of life flashed before his eyes... his three children... his days at the Naval Academy... flying above the clouds off the coast of Africa... giving speeches before cheering and jeering crowds... building a movement to wake up and save his beloved race... the noble face of Adolf Hitler... and, if there is any justice in this universe, a proud god, welcoming his golden soul home. Swastikas reflecting in his divine eyes, Rockwell joining the others until the final battle.

    'And when the Jews have thus sliced through all these defenses of the white man and the American republic like a hot knife through butter, the edge of the blade will hit the cold steel of the American Nazi Party.'

    'When you are ready to die for something, then you are alive.'
    -George Lincoln Rockwell

    [Above: Young African girls from somewhere in the vast French colonies on display at a 'colonial exposition', Paris, 1931.]

    Recently I learned about a shameful practice of 'human zoos'. I dislike zoos anyway, they are nothing more than prisons for animals. The animals always look sad, depressed and deathly bored. During the late 19th and early 20th century human beings from all over the world were placed in the same kind of exhibits. Zoo keepers would attempt to replicate the natural habitats of the captured people. Most of them were chained or put behind bars in their enclosures. The Chilean government even gave permission for over a dozen of their indigenous people to be captured and placed in a zoo. Many of these people died in captivity, while millions of 'civilized' people gawked at them. Some of these human zoos had permanent locations, while others traveled the world, year after year.

    These human zoos were incredibly popular and found all over the world. Visited by 28 million people, the 1889 World's Fair presented 400 indigenous people as the major attraction.

    Even though slavery was banned all over the world these 'savages' seemed to have no human rights. Many of them were forced to perform dubious rituals or ceremonies. Kidnapped, captured and ripped from their homes, often forced to remain naked, all in front of a revolving door of millions of gawking faces.

    [Above: Africans forced to participate in archery in 1904 in St. Louis, U.S.A., at an event entitled 'Savage Olympics Exhibition.']

    Some of them were placed in cages as 'freaks' and 'missing links' in human evolution. These traveling zoos, or 'freak shows', also showcased human beings with birth defects.

    These people were taken from all over the world -- Congolese from Africa, Ainu from Japan, Patagonians from Chile, Filipinos, and even the defeated Apache people and their leader Geronimo.

    [Above: Five Indians from the Kawesqar tribe after being kidnapped in 1881 and shipped to Europe to be put on display.]

    So where does National Socialism and Adolf Hitler fit into all of this?

    Adolf Hitler was the first leader in history to ban human zoos. Yet his enemies continued to have them, even as their popularity waned, into the late 1950s. Adolf Hitler not only freed the Germans and most of Europe, but also had detailed plans with the Mufti to free the Middle East, and went further than any man in history to protect nature and teach the world that animals had rights too. He saw these human zoos as another sign of the sickness of the old world. The world he was fighting to change. A new world, with free men, was being born. A world where man respected one another, where the inherent qualities in each human being was not only cherished but magnified by the greatness of National Socialism. Instead, in today's empty and greedy rush for money, where the best man often does not win, those with influential families and money rise to the top. Geniuses work as janitors, artists as bartenders, unsung heroes as garbage men, all with no incentive and no opportunity. Men who could have been anything, but nothing interested them in this diseased world.

    [Above: A Sikkimese serves as a beast of burden for a British merchant, West Bengal, 1903.]

    Human zoos were perpetrated by Jews and white men. It was a natural procession from colonialism. But is this a part of the noble Aryan spirit? No. As National Socialists we despise these practices. We stand for the freedom of all peoples, IN THEIR OWN COUNTRIES. We have only one enemy. The corrupter and poisoner of mankind, who declared war on us before we were born. Who despises us in our wombs. Who wishes to murder and enslave us all. So be it. We as National Socialists accept the challenge.

    Every race, every people, have their natural place on this earth. As St. Savitri Devi said 'Respect the man of noble races other than your own, who carries out, in a different place, a combat parallel to yours -- to ours. He is your ally. He is our ally, be he at the other end of the world.'

    One case in particular, a Congolese man named Ota Benga, was forced to live in a monkey exhibit. A group of African-American ministers were appalled at the conditions where Benga was held. Rev. James H. Gordon commented, 'We are frank enough to say we do not like this exhibition of one of our own race with the monkeys. Our race, we think, is depressed enough, without exhibiting one of us with apes. We think we are worthy of being considered human beings, with souls.'

    [Above: Ota Benga was on display at the Bronx Zoo in New York City in 1906.]

    In 1906 Benga was released from his monkey cage into a world foreign to everything he knew. He was adopted into a black family, after they fought for his release. They said of him, '[Ota] knew more about the meaning of humanity than the missionary who brought him over here.' He wanted nothing more than to return to his home in Africa, which could never happen, he was told. He would never see his home and family again. Marooned thousands of miles away, life lost its meaning.

    He shot himself in the heart on March 19, 1916.

    One visitor of a human zoo exhibition in the 1904 World's Fair commented, 'the race narrative of odd peoples who mark time while the world advances, and of savages made, by American methods, into civilized workers.'

    [Above: A little black girl in a Belgium zoo fenced off like an animal.]

    'Civilized workers'. Ah yes, of course, rip them out of their homes to serve us McDonald's GMO hamburgers. Or stuff them in a meat packing plant or to pick our poisoned tomatoes. Don't ya just love 'Capitalist Democracy'. You're free to be a good slave. To be a good 'worker'! So bury your face into your 'smart phone' and be a good worker. You can only dream of the freedom these 'primitive' peoples had.

    Be careful Aryan man, you may soon find yourself in a zoo. 'The once great white man. The last of his kind.' And with no Adolf Hitler to save you.

    [Above: This photo was taken by Heinrich Hoffmann (whom would later become Hitler's official photographer) in May 1919. It is of 'Mohamed Husen' in Munich. Husen was a highly decorated officer who served in East Africa with the Germans and later with a Freikorps unit. The inscription on the photo reads in part 'To the battles: Munich. A loyal East African fighter.' Mohamed Husen is shown here while working with the 'Lettow-Vorbeck Freikorps' acting as a chauffeur. He is what is called an 'askari' (An askari was a local soldier from Africa serving in the armies of the European colonial powers, particularly in East Africa, Northeast Africa, and Central Africa. The word was not only used by the Germans, but also the French, English, Italian, Urdu and Portuguese).]

    Mohamed Husen (birth name Majub) was born in Tanzania (German East Africa) in 1905. At the age of nine Husen volunteered to fight with Germany against his country's invaders in WWI. After the war he was given combat pay by Germany for his deceased father who was killed in action during the war.

    Sometime later he found a job as a steward in a German ship. This job enabled him to travel to Germany, first to Hamburg and later to Berlin.

    During this tumultuous time he joined the revolutionary 'Lettow-Vorbeck Freikorps' acting as a chauffeur. Sometime during this time he earned German citizenship and later got a job in a circus as an entertainer. In his spare time he also taught Swahili to German government civil servants and diplomats, who would later use these language skills in Africa.

    [Above: Mohamed Husen]

    After Adolf Hitler came to power Husen began appearing in German films and proved to be a popular actor. He appeared in eleven films from 1934 to 1941.

    A London Guardian news article reported about him:

    ' the mid-1930s, he was dressing up in military gear and appearing at rallies in front of National Socialist banners.'

    Not much is known further about Husen. It is reported that he had a wife while in Germany and later children. Reports say that at least one of his children died in Allied Terror Bombings and possible his wife as well.

    One thing is clear: Husen's story is another piece of proof that the National Socialists were not the racists their enemies teach that they were.

  • In WWI the askari were led by their most beloved German leader Paul Emil von Lettow-Vorbeck. Lettow-Vorbeck was a general in the Imperial German Army and the commander of its forces in German East Africa. For four long years, with a force that never exceeded 14,000 (3,000 Germans and 11,000 Africans), he held in check a much larger force of 300,000 British, Belgian, and Portuguese troops. His loyal troops and he endured hunger, malaria and the elements in what has been described by Edwin Palmer Hoyt as 'the greatest single guerrilla operation in history, and the most successful.'

    Lettow-Vorbeck's force was undefeated in the field. His fluency in the Swahili language earned the respect and admiration of his African soldiers. He appointed black officers, proclaiming to his men what he believed in his heart:
    'we are all Africans here'.

    [Above: Poster bearing the image of General Paul Emil von Lettow-Vorbeck on horseback leading African soldiers. Text at top reads 'Colonial War Funds Donation'.]

  • The historian Charles Miller stated 'It is probable that no white commander of the era had so keen an appreciation of the African's worth not only as a fighting man but as a man.'

    After the armistice of WWI Lettow-Vorbeck's army surrendered to the British. The British repatriated the white German soldiers but confined the askaris in filthy concentration camps. General von Lettow-Vorbeck refused to leave until he had won promises of decent treatment and early release for his black troops.

    General von Lettow-Vorbeck brought back some of his askari soldiers to Germany where they served in his brand of Freikorps.

    [Above: Postcard with the picture of General Paul Emil von Lettow-Vorbeck and Governor Dr. Heinrich Schnee.]

  • 'In 1953 in Dar Es Salam (Tanzania-ed.) I wanted to greet my old Askari. At mid-day I arrived at the local market place and I was surrounded by over 400 Askari, they had tears in their eyes and covered my hands in kisses. Around open campfires the Askari talked all through the night and they said that I had shaken the hand of every one of them, they said it is something that the English never did'.
    -Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck, from his 1957 book Mein Leben (My Life)

    'The Wehrwolf movement represents a minority. Only the best of our people belong to it.
    It is more worthwhile and more promising of success to fight with a hundred determined men and women than to have a thousand [nominal] members.'

    -Radio Wehrwolf, April 7, 1945.

  • Hermann Löns was a life long nature and animal lover who found immortality through his beloved Der Wehrwolf novel. Although he wrote a handful of other books, none are so well known and loved as Der Wehrwolf. To this day over seven million books by Löns have been printed. He was also a beloved poet, in 1911 he released a collection of poems. One of these poems, the 'Matrosenlied' (Sailors' Song) has the chorus 'Denn wir fahren gegen Engelland' (For we are sailing against England), was put to music by Herms Niel and was one of the most-sung German military songs of World War II!

    But Hermann Löns would never see the fame and wealth that largely escaped him during his tumultuous life. At the age of 48, after first being rejected for ill health, he managed to join the German Army and fight in WWI. On the dark day of September 26, 1914 the great patriot and naturalist fell. Löns died just three weeks after enlisting on September 3. Of the 120 brave men in his unit only about two dozen survived an assault on a French position at Loivre near Reims in France.

    [Above: Hermann Löns (August 29, 1866 – September 26, 1914)]

    [Above: Third Reich era copy of Der Wehrwolf. By 1945 the Wehrmacht alone sold more than 865,000 copies of the book! This made him one of the most successful authors in Germany at the time.]

  • Löns was a poet whose poems often dealt with the natural world. He was a pioneer of nature conservationism. In fact, he was co-initiator of the Heideschutzpark at Wilseder Berg which later grew into the famous Naturpark Lüneburger Heide (Lüneburg Heath Nature Park), which was the first nature reserve in Germany.

    [Above: This copy of Der Wehrwolf was printed with proceeds going to help needy soldiers in the Wehrmacht (left). On the right is one of the many editions for soldiers to read at the front.]

  • Löns was buried on the battlefield where he fell. In 1934 his remains were located and reburied in Germany. Today there are some 113 memorials to Löns in Germany, plus another eight in Austria and 19 in other countries. There are also 247 streets and roads in Germany which have been named after him. Twelve schools also bear his name and even a stadium.

  • Athena is the goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, strategic warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill.
    Most interesting in this context, Athena is a devoted companion of heroes and is the patron goddess of heroic endeavor.

    Here is a quote from the 1930s book 'Die Kunst im Dritten Reich':

    'Athena is the goddess of war and art. She personifies the strong, fresh spiritual strength of the human being. She stands freely, upright. She recognizes, measures, and uses the strength of all things in the victorious battle with the enemy and in the conquest of nature for the creation of art. The picture of the goddess is the fitting expression of the heroic character of the Führer and the National Socialist movement and, in the deepest sense, of the art the Führer wants. An art form for which the artists has to fight in a serious and concentrated working procedure so that he may receive a blessing from it.'

The medal carried the following inscription: 'To the leader of the German people, Adolf Hitler, who has put national thought in the center of our spiritual life and who has rendered back to art it's old rights. His prophetic plans have given art its own task, to be the language of the people.'
