Hitler rejects Bruening’s offer

Not wanting to strengthen Bruening and the the Republic in any way, Hitler has rejected the idea of prolonging Hindenburg’s term, calling the concept utterly “unconstitutional.” What a riot. The irony of Hitler calling anything unconstitutional is sadly laughable.

The Nazi’s are obviously spoiling for an electoral fight. I’m not sure why Hitler wants to run against Hindenburg at this time. The old man seems unbeatable.

Since the 1930’s, the Nazi’s have been winning provincial elections. But to run a country-wide election is something else indeed. Why does Hitler risk ruining his own powerful position and that of his party?  If he does obtain citizenship and runs against Hindenburg, I hope and pray that he gets beaten soundly by the old man. It would be devastating.

I would prefer that Germany install a government similar to England’s whereby King Wilhelm could come back from the low countries to his throne. I can see that scenario happening in the future if Hindenburg continues to rule, but we are lost if Hitler succeeds in his ambitious and ruthless climb to the top. Let us hold the elections, ruin Hitler and  put a stake in the heart of the Nazis!

Election rumors

Sources tell me that Hitler was called from Munich to Berlin to talk with Chancellor Bruening about prolonging Hindenburg’s presidential term. Hindenburg does not want to go through the strain of another election. The old man wants to prolong his own term, but not have to once again fight for it against Hitler and others.

Hitler reportedly said in Munich when he received the summons to Berlin that, “Now I have them in my pocket! They have recognized me as a partner in their negotiations.”

Bruening’s  proposal includes two incentives. If the Nazis agree to Hindenburg’s term extension, Bruening will retire once he settles the problem of repaying reparations and restoring equality for rearming Germany. He also said that on his retirement, he would suggest to Hindenburg that Herr Hitler be made Chancellor.

Hitler has apparently not given an answer yet. He has retired to the Kaiserhof just down the street to confer with his deputies. My sources at the hotel tell me that Hess, Strasser, Goebbels, Goering and Roehm are all in attendance.

We shall see what the morrow brings.

Rumblings from Leipzig

Word from Leipzig has arrived. Hitlerite speakers at the local congress continue to press the idea of the superiority of the “Nordic” race, whatever that is.It is a rather odd thing for the Nazis to propound when their leaders are all rather swarthy themselves! No blond, blue eyed Hitler, Hess, Goebbels or Himmler.

More ominously, the Leipzig Nazis called for the murder of Marxists, the abolition of trade unions and the mandatory sterilization of Jews and other “lesser” races in Germany (read: Slavs and Gypsies). How the Nazis are winning elections with this kind of wretched rhetoric is beyond my comprehension.

I think that they must be appealing to voters who want radical change because the Republic is perceived as corrupt and run by special interests. Other, less than desirable issues, such as sterilization and murder, are not in the forefront of the voter’s mind, though they obviously should be of concern to any civilized nation.  The political system in Germany appears to be broken to most Germans and Hitler and his brownshirts obviously have vigorous plans to attract non-Marxists, non-Catholics and hyper-nationalists, all of whom together constitute a majority of the populace.  Talk of oppressing minorities seems not to bother the average voter one pfennig.

Playing to the anti-Semitic feelings of many German Christians is to be expected. My question is, what constitutes a Jew in the Nazi mind? Full-blooded Jew? Half Jew? I am one-quarter Jew on my mother’s side. Am I to be sterilized if Hitler comes to power? Could it come to that? I would seriously consider leaving the county, perhaps for England or America ( I can’t abide the French ).
