Leon Degrelle on the Life of Adolf Hitler

In this program, August introduces and reads an essay entitled, The Enigma of Hitler, by Leon Degrelle, which was published in The Journal for Historical Review in 1994.  August begins by providing some basic details of the life of Degrelle himself, including his history as a Belgian nationalist, anticommunist, and future volunteer for the Waffen-SS.  Decorated by and personally acquainted with Adolf Hitler, Degrelle argues that “the enigma of Hitler” has persisted in part because in spite of all of the volumes of historical writing and discussion on Hitler, few have discovered the real Hitler.  The enigma of Hitler remains with us because of the extraordinary depth of Hitler himself, a fact taken in conjunction with a variety of myths about him.  August concludes by reiterating a point he has already made on previous shows: That coming to positive terms with Adolf Hitler is a necessary precondition for any salvaging and rescuing of our race.

Revisionism and its Antagonists

In the third program of An Hour by the Window, August discusses some aspects of the field of revisionism.   He holds that revisionism’s principal antagonists can be divided into roughly two camps: Those that fall within the mainstream academic establishment and those that emerge within our own movement.   He cites two examples, respectively, of each.  Michael Shermer, Holocaust historian, embodies the former.  Author Greg Johnson, a White nationalist, embodies the latter.  Both fundamentally oppose Holocaust revisionism, but do so from very different points of view.  The pro-establishment view rejects revisionism as pseudoscience, and the White nationalist rejection of revisionism rejects the revisionist enterprise as irrelevant to our cause.

In the course of this program, August brings up other issues:

  • Michael Shermer’s essay, The New Revisionism, as an example of how those who critique revisionism have political motives of their own.
  • Comparisons made by anti-revisionists between revisionism and creationism, which Shermer has himself done numerous times.
  • The reduction of some criticisms of revisionism to a “fringe group”.
  • The pseudoscientific underpinnings of some anti-revionists, like Shermer, and the anti-scientific basis of their race-denial.
  • Discussion of Greg Johnson’s essay at The Occidental Observer entitled “Dealing with the Holocaust”, and his “Holocaust enough” claim.
  • Reference to recent talks and writings, such as Carolyn Yeager’s writings and in Thomas Dalton’s Nationalism and the Holocaust: A Reply to Johnson.

False Visions of Hitler in the West, Part II: The Underlying Foreign Policies of Germany

Meeting of Chamberlain and HitlerIn this program, August discusses one of the more contentious issues underlying the Good War myth: That what drove Adolf Hitler’s foreign policy was a desire to undermine the West, including the British Empire and the United States.  He goes deeper into textual and historical material in search of Hitler’s actual attitudes toward the British Empire, the pivotal nation that a policy of presumed “world domination” would have to target.  In fact, as was discussed on the first episode of this installment, Hitler sought an alliance with the British Empire, and neither a compliant and submissive ally nor an antagonist to his actual foreign policy aims, which were to unite the German people and secure their existence.  In the second half of the show, August concludes that we must emphasize the racial dimensions of the impact of our World War II mythology above all, even if more mainstream revisionist and alternative views about the war may fail to strongly accentuate the underlying and important racial point.

In the course of the program, August also brings up:

  • Discussion of Patrick J. Buchanan’s book, Churchill, Hitler and the Unnecessary War: How Britain Lost its Empire and the West Lost the World as a mainstream link to an important point not just about national decline, but more broadly, about our racial decline.
  • Mention of Hitler’s Second Book, written after Mein Kampf but unpublished, which has formed the subject of some controversy and which focuses on Hitler’s fundamental foreign policies.
  • The extent to which Hitler’s desire for an alliance with the British Empire was realistic and reflected the scope of the geopolitics of his era, in light of Hitler’s own awareness of the extent of Jewish influence on British finance.

False Visions of Hitler in the West, Part I: Through the Gulf War to the Golden Dawn

Adolf Hitler with ChildrenSept. 19, 2012

In this first show of an Hour by the Window, August discusses some propaganda about World War II, about Adolf Hitler himself and the causes and conduct of the war, and their specific role in refashioning domestic policy, immigration policy, as well as foreign policy in significant ways not conducive to the benefit of European Americans.  He spends the first half discussing some of these domestic and foreign policy changes, maintaining that America’s vision of itself and the propaganda of Jews were decisive factors in those changes.  In the second half, August goes back to the personage of Adolf Hitler himself, addressing significant points about his ultimate foreign policy goals and intentions, and the causes of World War II.  Ultimately, he maintains that European Americans will never be able to escape a cycle of decline unless they come to terms with the past… a past that has been mythologized to their detriment.

In the course of the show, August also brings up other important issues:

  • The mythologizing of Jewish suffering in World War II into the story of the Holocaust.
  • Hitler’s desire for an alliance with the British Empire, stretching back to Mein Kampf, with reference to the 1937 Ribbentrop-Churchill meeting.
  • Comparisons between Hitler and heads of state in follow-ups to conflicts, in order to justify such conflicts in the minds of European Americans.
  • Media attacks on the Golden Dawn as an example of how nationalist and patriotic movements are consistently attacked in the Jewish media.
