Saturday Afternoon with Carolyn: The Deeper Meaning of Nuremberg

Sept. 6, 2014

Maurice Bardeche's intellectually and morally courageous report on France's participation in the 1945-46 proceedings of the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg has been translated into many languages.

Carolyn discusses the first "holocaust" revisionist book to appear, Nuremberg or the Promised Land (1948) by Maurice Bardeche, which brilliantly foresaw the "New World Order" of the Allied victors to be based on Universal Humanism as the ruling spirit everywhere. This spirit is anti-Nationalist to the core and Bardeche was called a Fascist in his day. Time: 2h20min. Some highlights:

  • Nuremberg is the source of "The Religion of Humanity," "The Conscience of Humanity" and "The Human Person";
  • The Crimes Against Peace indictment was based on documents such as the Hossbach Note and the Schmundt File, which are open to interpretation;
  • The French delegation should have concerned itself only with what people of France experienced, not what took place in concentration camps in Poland;
  • International Law is a scam invented by Jews, used to destroy Fatherlands;
  • Under the Führer Prinzip, which was ignored at Nuremberg, Adolf Hitler was responsible for every order he gave, not the person who carried it out, and he accepted this responsibility;
  • French President Francois Hollande is a product of Nuremberg, stating on Friday that his raison d'etre is to serve "the weakest, the most humble, the poorest" ... these being examples of "The Human Person".

August 23, 2014

Manfred Roeder (b1929), known as "the German Ghandi" for devoting his life to serving German independence, dressed here iin "Volk" fashion in Austria.

Carolyn Yeager looks at two outstanding Germans named Manfred Roeder: the military judge who prosecuted the "Red Orchestra" traitors in 1942-43, and the patriotic activist called the Federal Republic's "most dangerous and notorious critic" who died on July 30th at age 85.

She also tells of a German historian's revisionist conclusions refuting the Belgian version of the famous Louvain massacre by German troops in August 1914. Highlights include:

  • Prof. Ulrich Keller says German troops faced sniper fire from Belgian partisans (francs-tireurs) in the city of Louvain in WW1, and the evidence is found in 150 sworn statements from investigations and court records;
  • The younger Manfred Roeder fought in the Battle of Berlin at age 15-16, and continued the battle for a true constitutional Germany free of US/Jewish domination for the rest of his life;
  • Roeder was sentenced to prison twice (for 13 yrs and 2.5 yrs) for arson attacks and Volksverhetzung - incitement to hatred and insult;
  • The death sentences sought and gained by Roeder the military jurist were all upheld on appeal after the war as being conducted in accordance with the law;
  • The older Roeder was fully accepted in German society postwar, being an active member of the CDU, even though he had served and been admired by Hitler and Goering.

At right, Manfred Roeder (b1900), Generalrichter, in Luftwaffe uniform. His age and the date of the picture is unknown.
