Hitler’s Ghost Haunts America

Here it is 2003, and the ghost of the notorious Nazi Adolph Hitler haunts America.

He’s in the White House in Washington, DC and the governor’s mansion in Sacramento, California.

He roams the halls of the George C. Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. His Nazi minions Arthur Rudolph and Werner Von Braun provided the know-how to put American astronauts on the moon and nuclear warheads into space. Rudolph, according to reporter Linda Hunt, was guilty of war crimes in WWII. “In 1969, Americans cheered as our astronauts took their first steps onto the moon. The giant rocket that blasted them into space was Rudolph’s crowning achievement as NASA’s project director for Saturn V. Fifteen years later, Rudolph relinquished his U.S. citizenship and left the country rather than face Justice Department charges that he had committed war crimes while working in an underground factory that had used Dora Concentration Camp prisoners as slave labor.”

American’s should find it a bit unsettling that their presence on the moon and the space-based military dominance they enjoy was built, in good measure, on the backs of 6,000 human beings who would ultimately be executed by the Nazi SS in the Spring of 1945.

According to Hunt, exactly 40 years after the liberation of Dora, in April 1985, the Alabama Space and Rocket Museum paid tribute to 40 Germans who stood surrounded by the press, in front of old V-2s and the Saturn V Rocket they helped build for the United States. There is no monument to the Dora Concentration Camp. Why? Americans do not wish to be reminded of what WWII French Resistance leader, and Dora prisoner, Jean Michel said about the day that U.S. astronauts first walked on the moon, “I could not watch the Apollo mission without remembering that that triumphant walk was made possible by our initiation to inconceivable horror.”

Hitler’s influence is everywhere in America.

Nazi Know-How and the CIA

Hitler’s ghost occupies the hallowed ground of the US Central Intelligence Agency. General Reinhard Gehlen was Hitler’s top Soviet spy during WWII and was recruited by Allen Dulles, the first director of the CIA. According to Martin Lee, writing in the San Francisco Bay Guardian, Gehlen returned to West Germany in the summer of 1946 with a mandate to rebuild his espionage organization and resume spying on the East at the behest of American intelligence. That date is significant as it preceded the onset of the Cold War, which, according to standard U.S. historical accounts, did not begin until a year later, according to Lee. The early courtship of Gehlen by American intelligence suggests that Washington was in a Cold War mode sooner than most people realize. The Gehlen gambit also belies the prevalent Western notion that aggressive Soviet policies were primarily to blame for triggering the Cold War.

Based near Munich, Gehlen proceeded to enlist thousands of Gestapo, Wehrmacht, and SS veterans. Even the vilest of the vile–the senior bureaucrats who ran the central administrative apparatus of the Holocaust–were welcome in the “Gehlen Org,” as it was called, including Alois Brunner, Adolf Eichmann’s chief deputy. SS major Emil Augsburg and Gestapo captain Klaus Barbie, otherwise known as the “Butcher of Lyon,” were among those who did double duty for Gehlen and U.S. intelligence, indicated Lee.

Sympathy for Ford’s Devil

Hitler’s ghost is present in the assembly lines of America’s automotive manufacturers. It’s amusing listening to the Ford advertising campaign that features the Rolling Stones song, Start Me Up. More appropriate, it seems, would be the Stone’s classic recording of Sympathy for the Devil. From 1939 to 1942, Ford Motor Company produced thousands of combat vehicles for the Nazi’s at its Cologne, Germany production facility reaping enormous profits that would ultimately be used to design the next-generation of Ford’s driven by Americans in the 1950’s. During the height of WWII, Ford shipped raw materials from America to the Cologne plant to ensure that production would not be interrupted by Allied bombing and that Hitler would remain a happy customer. According to Ken Silverstein, Ford vehicles were crucial to the revolutionary Nazi military strategy of blitzkrieg. Of the 350,000 trucks used by the motorized German Army as of 1942, roughly one-third were Ford products. Imagine the surprise of American troops when they saw the enemy–the Wehrmacht_driving around in Ford vehicles. “They were understandably an unpleasant sight to men in the US Army,” reported Silverstein.

IBM received lucrative contracts from the Nazi’s to build databases that would be used to determine population demographics and track down Jews, Christians and other threats to the Nazi Party. Profits from those efforts, like Ford’s, were sent home to America to perform research and development for new profit-making technologies. It’s the same story for General Motors, Kodak, Dupont, and General Electric (owner of NBC news).

Who Won WWII?

“As the world enemy wages war against the White Race and Western Civilization in every corner of the world, we have found that the ONLY WAY to shock our people awake is through BOLD ACTION. Too many others would rather try to TALK the problem away, while we realize that the time has come to FIGHT!” That from a web site of the American Nazi Party. With the election of Arnold Schwarzenegger in California (his father was a member of the Nazi Party opting to be a member of the storm-trooping “Brown Shirts” who eagerly pursued and persecuted Jews, Christians and Gypsies) and Nazi-tainted George Bush II in the White House, the American Nazi Party, the Aryan Nations and other despicable hate groups have received an unintended acknowledgement that their hateful struggle on behalf of the “white race” has merit.

And why shouldn’t they when their government officials and so-called leaders tacitly sanction ethnic cleansing, demean Islam and Arabs or strive to eliminate the civil rights gains of minorities and same-sex groups.

It’s no surprise to find Hitler’s ghost in the offices of Senator Trent Lott who said of white supremacist Senator Strom Thurmond_an opponent of integration and civil rights in the 1960’s– “When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We’re proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn’t have had all these problems over all these years.” Hitler’s ghost visits the House side in the offices of Representative Tom Delay, an avowed Christian Zionist, who advocates the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians by Israel and is a proponent of the Security Fence, while at the same time admonishing those who will listen to him to “stand unashamedly for Jesus Christ”.

And in the Pentagon, Hitler’s ideology, has a friend in the form of US Marine Corps Lieutenant General William Boykin who believes that “God supports the US military because we’re a Christian nation, because our foundation and our roots are Judeo-Christian…Our spiritual enemy will only be defeated if we come against them in the name of Jesus.”

That’s what the Aryan Nation says too. They proclaim that they have God’s support. Like all God-fearing Nazi’s, they hope “To ordain, establish, and pledge our fidelity to our Aryan Racial Nation, under the Law of God, the uniting of our individual strength as a united lawful power, for the preservation and total independence from all alien influence and control over our Faith, Children, and Destiny. ”

“I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator,” said Adolf Hitler.

“God told me to strike at Al Qa’ida and I struck them. And then he instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did. With the might of God on our side we will triumph,” said George Bush. Or was that Hitler talking to Bush?

Hitler’s ghost haunts the United States of America.
