Updated to add: Facebook banned me for 30 days for writing this post. The next post in my feed is some asshole threatening to STAB @MargaretsBelly, but that’s apparently okay. How apropos!
I’m the daughter of a Lebensborn. Grand-daughter of an SS Officer. I’m Aryan by culture and by blood. The word “Nazi” is getting thrown around quite a lot lately, and I think it’s time we settled on a definition. I’m rather offended by the broadening of who gets to call themselves a Nazi.
Quite frankly, I’m sick of the cultural appropriation.
Nazi is a short form way of saying National Socialist, but most current Nazis realize that socialism is completely bonkers and the reason Hitler lost. Had he been a proper capitalist, he would not have had such supply chain management issues and his Army would have survived that disastrous winter on the Russian front. Stalingrad would have fallen. Socialists can’t do anything right. Also, the Russians were willing to eat each other. We Nazis might have a well-deserved reputation for savagery, but even we have standards.
Simply sharing the political ideology of socialism is not a sufficient condition for calling anyone a Nazi. The world is filled with wingnut socialists like Bernie Sanders and Mitt Romney and they can’t all be Nazis. That is too broad a brush.
Being a Nazi, much like being a Muslim, is far more than just a set of ideas about how to structure society. It’s ultimately about annihilation. The complete and utter destruction of the weak, the inferior, the non-believers. There is a profound science based on biological fact that underwrites real Nazism. Yes, your eye color matters. Yes, the shade of your hair matters. Your height matters. Your weight matters. This is not based on some sort of preference derived purely from aesthetics. That’s nonsense. It is settled science that height and weight and the amount of melanin in your body is correlated with intelligence, accomplishment, leadership ability and just general superiority.
Sorry. Not liking that fact does not alter the truth value. You only need to see Wilm Hosenfeld standing next to the starving Jew pianist to see clearly the pre-eminence of Nazi blood.
Nazi is a synonym for physical superiority. Genetic superiority. The promise of what humanity can become. Low IQ Trump voters clearly do not qualify, on body weight alone. Real Nazis have an intrinsic pride that renounces thuggery and street violence. If we are going to eradicate deplorables, we do so with elegance and efficacy. Nazis are still Germans, after all.
This is a grave mistake. Nazis don’t punch back. They exterminate. Be careful what you wish for. Be careful you do not give rise to what you are protesting. I’m happy with a police state. I have no fear. I have no need to fear the authority.
I am the authority.
And I do not fear making difficult, fraught decisions. Strength, after all, lies in attack, not defense. I am the daughter of a Lebensborn. I have blonde hair and blue eyes and I have borne three children who also have blonde hair and blue eyes. I am the future. I claim my place by declaring proudly that I am a Nazi.
The future has no room for gay Jews who may be charming and silly and great fun, but who will never father beautiful Aryan children.
Let’s be more precise about how we use the term Nazi. It would be such a shame if the word were to be used so irreverently and casually that it lost all meaning.
That’s just not reich.
Lots of love,
