United States now officially non-White, according to Congress

Published by carolyn on Mon, 2019-01-14 20:39

Eight-term congressman from Iowa Steve King is facing serious reprimand from his own Republican Party, which feels obliged to step in and speak up against his "too loyal" defense of white western civilization and "White Nationalists." It looks like King will be another victim of our misguided 20th Century historical narrative.


By Carolyn Yeager

IT'S OFFICIAL--THE UNITED STATES must now be called a non-White nation because on this everyone can approve.

With the Republicans' panicky reaction to a New York Times story on GOP Congressman Steve King's moderate response to being called a “White Supremacist,” we must accede the point. In an article in the New York Times, King is reported as having allegedly said, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilizationhow did that language become offensive? Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?” [We are not sure he said “supremacist,” but even if he did ...]

An essay on English transgressions vs the will of Providence

A still from a video, making the point that Britain utilised and depended on her colonies to fight the war for her. Though she lost about 800,000 soldiers total, it was far less than France, Russia or Germany.


I LIKED THIS ARTICLE in the March 3, 1915 issue of THE FATHERLAND because of the overview it provides of English outrages against any competitor or source of wealth that presented itself. It puts the Great War into perspective very well, but is a bit too optimistic as to the hoped-for outcome. At this time, the United States was still seen as the fair-minded uninvolved arbiter, a role it totally failed to fulfill in this war, and the next. -Carolyn

ENGLAND AND PROVIDENCE

By Dr. Edmund von Mach

NATIONS, like individuals, are the tools of Providence. We may think we understand the reasons of our actions, but we do not know the aims of Providence until the results are achieved.

The state of American neutrality in February 1915

THESE FIRST FOUR ITEMS COME FROM the No. 26 issue of THE FATHERLAND newspaper, [No. 24 shown at left] meaning that after 26 consecutive weeks it was still going strong. Also going strong was discussion of the United States-declared 'Neutrality' in regards to the war raging in Europe. We know today that U.S. neutrality was a sham, but at the time those Americans who were not pro-England or pro-Russian were struggling to bring attention to the situation.

The Fatherland v.1 no.26 P 5

N.Y. Staats Zeitung editorial, January 25, 1915

On Our Knees to England”

IN a letter to United States Senator Stone, but intended for general consumption, Secretary Bryan has undertaken to justify the attitude of the administration toward the warring nations and to reply to the attacks which have been provoked by the attitude of the Government on this subject. It is well that the letter bears the signature of Mr. Bryan, as otherwise it might have been assumed that it had been composed in London, or the British Embassy in Washington, except that British diplomats would probably have gone about it with more skill and discretion than our Secretary of State. 

Searching for the roots of persistent anti-Germanism

"The Germans Arrive" - 1918 war propaganda painting by American artist George Bellows portrays imaginary atrocity committed by German troops in Belgium - where he had not been. (click to enlarge) The story is below.


By Carolyn Yeager

From acute hatred in 1914 to smoldering prejudice today, where did anti-Germanism start and why does it persist?

I cannot find any documentation of this phenomenon prior to the lead-up to World War I in the nineteenth century, and centered in the British Foreign Office. The image presented was of an exaggerated authoritarianism in both the German personality and culture.

Germans had always, up to then, been seen as a nation of “Poets and Thinkers” who were “disinclined to war,” acccording to Dr. Michael F. Conners in his book Dealing in Hate: The Development of Anti-German Propaganda. I have just now found Dr. Conners book online, as I am preparing to post this article, and will read what he has to say with interest ex post facto, as it were.

Wishing you a “pig” of a New Year—German style

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2018-12-30 22:53

This card reads Die besten Neujahrsgrüsse (The best New Year greetings). I am charmed by the tiny tot and piglet toasting the midnight hour with glasses of wine, and the dancing mushrooms joining in. The pig carries a 4-leaf clover; the boy a sprig of greenery. (click to enlarge)


By Carolyn Yeager

NO ONE HAS BETTER CARDS THAN THE GERMANS [used to have, anyway]. The pig is the most ubiquitous image in New Year Greetings in Germany going way back. The pig represents prosperity and plenty, as do coins laying around or falling freely for the taking. The four-leaf clover is almost always present, along with the horseshoe, to represent good luck. Then a glass of wine or spirits for good cheer and enjoyment. And, of course, the clock pointing to 12. Sometimes it is a calendar showing Jan. 1st instead.

Did German troops really burn down the Belgian city of Leuven?

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2018-12-28 12:17

Or, even worse, the irreplaceable medieval manuscripts housed in the library there? Those uncivilized barbarians!

The message received by the public almost everywhere except in the German and Austro-Hungarian empires was one which placed the blame for all the horrors of war on the German side. And it remains the overwhelming belief enshrined in the official history of the First World War.


By Carolyn Yeager

THIS IS THE NARRATIVE YOU WILL COME ACROSS by a superficial Internet search on the popular search engines. I knew there was an alternate version of this narrative, but was surprised when I could not find any mention of one with a quick online search. There was not even a reference to it on the relevant Wikipedia pages. So I thought, again: The Internet is being denuded of all 'alternative' versions of history! This is getting to be nuts.

After a long wait, the Einsatzgruppen book is finally in my hands

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2018-12-23 00:04

By Carolyn Yeager

I RECEIVED THE OTHER DAY the long-awaited book The Einsatzgruppen in the Occupied Eastern Territories by Carlo Mattogno and am eager to get into it. After first looking at the Table of Contents, I went straight to a couple of pages at the back headed “Conclusion” and was satisfied, as of the moment anyway, with the way it was presented. I will condense it for you even more here:

The mission of the Einsatzgruppen as the German Army moved into and occupied Soviet Russian territory included first and foremost the collection of important Soviet documents. Administratively, they restored the social and economic structure after the devastation of the retreating Soviets, and also were charged with identifying and controlling hostile elements in the population, ie. the partisans. Most Jews fell into that category.

Did you know? Excerpts from 'The Fatherland' that reveal fascinating insights into the Great European War

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2018-12-18 16:02

Ashkenazi Jew Henry Morgenthau Sr. (left) was part of Woodrow Wilson's administration in the important role of Ambassador to the Ottoman Empire at the time it was allied with Germany and Austria-Hungary … and his son, Henry Jr., became Franklin Roosevelt's Treasury Secretary (1934-45). Both were Democrat Party administrations. Grandchildren of Henry Sr. include Robert M. Morgenthau, District Attorney of Manhattan for 35 years and 'Pulitzer-prize-winning' historian Barbara W. Tuchman. THE FATHERLAND raises an interesting question about Amb. Morgenthau in 1914. -cy

v 1 no 20   Dec. 23, 1914   Page 12

AMBASSADOR MORGENTHAU IS “ACTIVE”

TWICE the United States has narrowly escaped being drawn into the European war. Once when a warning shot was fired across the bow of a launch of the Tennessee from a Turkish fort to impede its entry into mined waters, an act described by Capt. Decker as “not hostile,” though this qualifying statement was suppressed in Washington for several days for mysterious reasons; and again when our [US] ambassador to Turkey, Mr. Henry Morgenthau, informed the Porte that he would demand his passports* unless the British colony in Constantinople was allowed to leave the city.

Further reports on criminal treatment of German-Americans by England

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2018-12-15 16:14

It's hard to find any images that show the level of viciousness against Germans stirred up by the British once they had declared war. I don't believe there are any images extant of the concentration camps in England into which they threw any German or German-named civilian  man they got their hands on, including Americans. These camps are reported to have been of the lowest quality, where some Germans who tried to complain about the inedible quality of the food were shot! Nothing like this ever occurred in Germany.

THIS IS A MUST-READ FOLLOW UP OF THE PREVIOUS POSTED REPORT asking whether American citizens are entitled to protection by the U.S. State Department. The answer unfortunately is “not always” and there will probably be more personal accounts like these two as I continue to read The Fatherland issues. I am publishing this  2nd “installment” next, but in order to do so I had to forego another important and truly heart-rending article that I was going to post next. I urge everyone to read it for themselves in the Dec. 2, 1914 issue, page 6, titled ENGLISH BARBARISM by Hans F. Kammeyer. It's incredible and extremely sad. But even though it hurts, it's what we need to know. This kind of thing has been covered up for too long. We're still protecting the guilty from these two major wars and we are the worse off for it. Time to free the long-suffering Germans.
