There is a theory that Hitler was a secret Illuminati agent. These claims were presented by Australian history buff, Geoff Ferguson.
In Mein Kampf, Hitler called Slavic peoples “subhuman” alienating tens of millions of potential allies like the Christian Russians, Belorussians and Ukrainians who hated Bolshevism and the Jews that ran their countries and the slave Gulags.
He allowed the best and brightest Jews to leave and work relentlessly against Germany. Many helped to build the first atom bomb which was always intended to be dropped on Germany – not Japan.
Here are some more ways Hitler sabotaged his own cause:
* He built a Navy unsuitable for challenging the Royal Navy. His submarine war efforts were a copy of WWI which also failed. He built no invasion force capable of crossing the English channel – only 22 miles wide, and never intended to do this.
* His newly built Air Force also was not suitable for fighting the British, or even the Soviet Union which vastly outnumbered the Luftwaffe (e.g. 20,000 Soviet planes fighting 3,000 German planes). The Royal Air Force defeated him over the English skies. His bombers had a tiny payload intended for tactical support of ground forces. His jets could have been a war winning weapon even near the end of the war – but Hitler insisted these very fast planes should only be used as bombers.
*The choice of the former fighter ace and drug addict Hermann Goering, left, was a fatal decision. Hitler stayed loyal to incompetent senior leaders like Goering yet would fire a competent leader like Guderian (twice) for telling him the truth.
*His expensive rockets were only of benefit to the winners of the war – not the Germans. The bomb payload was tiny and the high speed of the rocket meant the one-ton bomb exploded underground with minimal damage. * He located the labs at Peenemunde then Nordhausen in East Germany – ensuring that the Soviets would capture much of the scientists, rockets and equipment – not the Western Allies.
* The “miracle” of Dunkirk is evidence that Hitler wanted the English to save face and win the war. The English in the UK were then almost without any weapons. An immediate makeshift invasion after capturing the British at Dunkirk would probably have succeeded and was worth the high risk. This was less risk than at Stalingrad and Tunisia to name two later battles. In any case, had he captured the British, then an armistice or peace may have been possible. He sabotaged his best chance to win the war against the British. Hitler said many times he loved the British Empire.
*He did not pressure the Japanese to help him destroy Russia – which would have solved Japanese supply problems (such as oil) without their reckless war against the USA and Britain – another guaranteed loss for the Axis. The Soviet Union was a hated pariah nation which should have been invaded by both Axis partners and broken up to share the spoils. When Japan attacked Pearl Harbour Hitler declared war on the USA unilaterally. He got nothing from the Japanese, having asked for nothing. The USA would not have fought Germany except in the Atlantic until the Japanese were defeated say four years later.
* Admiral Canaris, the head of the Abwehr (spy agency), was a traitor and an Allied spy. It is not possible that Hitler did not know this. He would have been informed of this via Himmler and perhaps others. Many of the rival fiefdoms maintained their own spy networks in competition with each other.
*German espionage, spy catching (e.g. Richard Sorge) and code breaking efforts were weak compared with Allied successes. German hubris or Hitler treason?
*Hitler’s six-week delay in attacking Russia doomed the invasion and was not necessary. He invaded Yugoslavia and Greece and as usual the Allies were trounced by the Germans. But those hilly and backward countries were of no danger to Germany as the slow 1944 invasion via Italy later proved.
* German Armies were close to Moscow when Hitler diverted his tank forces to capture Ukraine instead. Then the “unimportant” Moscow was attacked for a second time with worn out tanks and exhausted crews. The capture of Moscow may have brought Japan in on his side and shelved Pearl Harbour.
Hitler then blamed and fired his able Field Marshals for his own blunders and replaced them with younger ambitious men – who would be afraid to question his orders as the Old School had done.
* Hitler starved Rommel of support when he was invading Egypt. When Rommel was losing and retreating, Hitler sent about 200,000 fresh German soldiers who were all captured in Tunisia – a loss as serious as Stalingrad which is ignored by most “documentaries” as it is not visually interesting like the Stalingrad winter. These 200,000 troops could (earlier) have captured Egypt, the Suez Canal, Palestine and Syria, linking up with the Germans in Russia.
* Hitler refused to allow von Paulus to break out of Stalingrad to the West, which could have been done easily while von Manstein was attacking from the West. Hitler intentionally threw away the 6th Army.
*The 1943 pincer attack at Kursk was the most obvious counter attack in history and bound to fail. This battle alone lost the war for Germany by destroying his tank forces.
* Hitler ordered the mistreatment of subjugated peoples which ensured a strong Resistance and Partisan warfare against his own soldiers, who were hugely outnumbered by their subjects. Lasting Empires are mostly built on cooperation, diplomacy and mutual benefits – not brutality.
*Hitler in 1945 personally ordered the destruction of all German industry and power stations, consistent with the then secret US Morgenthau Plan.
Some claim that the shadowy Bormann was a Soviet spy. If so, Hitler would have known as Canaris and Himmler would both have told him.
* Hitler declined to conscript German women as a factory labour force even though he knew the British were doing this even in 1939. This decision alone was enough to lose the war. Just to “protect” German women, whom he allowed to be raped and murdered by Soviet soldiers in the last months of the war? It took Goebbels to declare Total War in 1942. Where was Hitler on this vital issue? Did he ever want to win?
*Hitler made no attempt to capture Gibraltar e.g. via paratroops. He also could have marched through Spain – it is not likely that Franco would have ordered his soldiers to fight the Germans. Hitler only had scruples about neutrality with ungrateful “friends” like Franco.
*Hitler also made no attempt to invade Malta which was essential to win the war in North Africa. He was hardly interested in the North African campaign and was there just to bail out Mussolini. Rommel did as well as he did by disobeying orders from above, who gave him very little support.
Overall, no man has done more harm to the present and future of the White Race than Adolf Hitler.
