The grave site of Hitler’s deputy had become such a popular shrine that authorities recently had the dead man’s bones dug up and cremated, with the ashes then strewn at sea. In this review of Rudolf Hess’ life and legacy, Weber explains why so many honor his memory, and regard him as a prisoner of peace and a victim of a vindictive age. In the aftermath of World War II, the Allied powers condemned Hess to life imprisonment for “crimes against peace,” even though he had risked his life in a daring attempt to end war between Britain and Germany. His treatment underscores the vindictiveness and hypocrisy of the victors, and especially the injustice of the inter-Allied Nuremberg Tribunal. In the final portion of this broadcast, Weber talks about a new book by American scholar, John Mearsheimer, “Why Leaders Lie,” which explains why leaders in the US and other mass democracies so often deceive and mislead the public.

Part 1: Why the Campaign Against 'Nazi War Criminals' is Unjust and Harmful

What’s behind the seemingly endless campaign to prosecute and punish “Nazi war criminals”? Weber cites specific cases to show that the decades-long effort to punish those who killed or mistreated Jews during World War II is motivated not by honest regard for justice, but to further Jewish-Zionist group interests. “Justice applied selectively is not justice, but a form of injustice,” he says. Weber also examines the widely repeated claim that “Diversity is our strength.” As he points out, the politicians and Jewish-Zionist groups that push for policies to promote “diversity” in the US and other countries simultaneously insist that Israel must be maintained as a specifically Jewish ethno-religious state.

Part 2: The Sobering Message of a Important European Best Seller

In the second half of this broadcast, Weber takes a closer look at the message and impact of the most important and influential books of recent years, “Germany Does Away With Itself,” a work by German writer Thilo Sarrazin that has sold more than a million copies.

Charles Lindbergh became an instant world celebrity at the age of 25 when he made a grueling 33-hour flight from New York to Paris, becoming the first person to fly the Atlantic ocean, alone and non-stop. His daring flight, and his aviation pioneering afterwards, made him, for some time, the most admired man in America, and the most admired American in the world. He was also a prolific, prize-winning author, inventor, explorer, and social activist. But his greatest act of courage was in speaking out — eloquently and frankly — against the deceitful campaign to push the United States into war. Lindbergh deserves to be remembered and honored today, not only as an authentic American hero, but also because much of what he wrote and said is instructive and relevant in our own age.

One of the most enduring myths of our age is the story that the Nazis set the Reichstag building on fire as a “false flag” operation to generate popular support for measures of the Hitler government to suppress dissent and consolidate power. Even some prominent historians have accepted the often repeated smear, which was invented and vigorously promoted by Communists, that Goering and other Nazi officials set the German parliament building ablaze on Feb. 27, 1933, and then cynically blamed the crime on enemies. But as Weber explains in this broadcast, the basic facts are now well established: A young Dutch Communist, Marinus van der Lubbe, acted alone in setting the Reichstag fire.
