Demented Religion

A key feature of contemporary philo-Semitism is its strange and deeply pernicious religious dimension, which is racist through and through. In contemporary mythology, Jews effectively substitute for Christ (a semi-divine god-race sacrificed in a holocaust), while Hitler is Satan.

As half-French, half-Scottish revisionist and former professor of French literature at the University of Lyons, Robert Faurisson, observes:

The result is that these days, in 2009, the existence of a ‘Shoah religion’ has become evident. Yesterday you could read in Le Monde an article talking about the erection of ‘the Shoah’ as ’state religion’ by Nicolas Sarkozy. (Gérard Courtois reporting on a book of Guy Konopnicki, 4 April 2009, p. 26). And here, in a study on ‘Benedict XVI and the integrists’ (Commentaire n° 125, Spring 2009, p. 5-11), you discover from the feather of [Catholic, former Communist] sociologist Alain Besançon [3] the following remarks:

On the scale of the sacred things, there is nothing that can dispute the first place of the Shoah (p. 9 A);

On top of the scale we thus have the Shoah. You can assign to the latter, going by external criteria, a quasi-status of religion (p. 10 A);

Having become universal [that religion] maintains the choice of the Jewish people by the diabolic will of Hitler, and not by the kind decision of God. It attracts the pity in the strongest sense of the Christian world. (p. 10 B).[1]

Besançon has expressed similar ideas before, as a Catholic book reviewer approvingly noted [4]:

Besançon concludes, as his subtitle indicates, by suggesting that the Shoah must be understood as unique. . . . [T]he Nazi crime committed against the Jewish people is unique because of the unique status of its victims. Here again Besançon has recourse to theology, taking seriously the special relationship of the Jewish people to God, a relationship that is recognized even outside of Judaism: “A conviction of faith cannot be put aside: the Jewish people have suffered for the cause of God.” (p. 84)

[5]The reviewer adds, “A Century of Horrors provides a much needed invitation to the fulfillment of a much-neglected duty: the duty to reflect on how evils of such unprecedented magnitude and character arose in the very heart of Western civilization.”[2] (Emphasis added.)

In other words, “the very heart of Western civilization” is responsible for a historically unique sin—in essence, an attack upon God Himself—of immeasurable proportions.

Like any divinity, “Hitler”/Satan is complex and multi-faceted.

For example, every new hate object becomes another “Hitler,” as illustrated in an old cartoon (apparently by Tom Toles) “The General and the Mrs.,” in which a couple is seated side by side on the sofa, conversing:

Husband (an Army general): You have to understand Saddam Hussein is Hitler.

Wife: Then why did we used to support him?

H: That was when he was attacking Khomeini, an even bigger Hitler.

W: I thought Gadhafi was Hitler.

H: He’s already had his 15 minutes as Hitler.

W: Like Yasser Arafat?

H: He was Hitler until Abu Abbas took over as Hitler.

W: Where does that leave Syria’s Assad?

H: He can be Hitler again after we take out Saddam.

“Nazis” (believers in any constellation of banned ideas, including ones pertaining to race, immigration, and demography), Germans, Southerners, Christians—ultimately, the entire white race—are likewise “Hitler”/Satan.

The far-reaching consequences of this fanatical religious belief in unique white evil, internalized by Jews, Judeo-Christians, secularists, and the State alike, has had enormous consequences for the white race—consequences which have yet to fully play themselves out.
