The Nazis are back on the streets of the Western world. This time, they’re not wearing swastika armbands or raising the straight-arm salute. Instead, neo-Nazi operatives are keeping a low profile, tweeting messages over iPhones, communicating with hand signals and brandishing propaganda posters from Adbusters. Despite appearances of free-for-all equality at Occupy Wall Street protests, a clandestine rightist network – allied with British intelligence agents and a far-right Swedish tycoon – secretly controls the agenda.
As Europe and North America once again plunge into deep economic crisis, the sons of Nazism are reappearing in New York, London, Madrid and hundreds of other cities to assemble wolf packs to take down “decadent” laissez-faire consumer capitalism and replace it with efficiency and stern discipline. OWS is the first stage of a master strategy; and the immediate task is to identify, select and recruit bright-eyed and obedient activists for indoctrination. The methods have already proven successful in the Color Revolutions in post-Soviet Eastern Europe and the Arab Spring’s empowerment of former Nazi allies, including the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Nazi Underground in Postwar Australia
The two key operatives behind the OWS – Kalle Lasn of Adbusters and Julian Assange of Wikileaks – share obscure backgrounds with disturbing links to the Nazi underground in postwar Australia. Lasn, the mastermind behind Occupy Wall Street, resides on a farm outside Vancouver, Canada. His back-to-nature lifestyle is not inconsistent with the idyllic pastoral myth that justified the expansion of German “living space” or lebensraum throughout conquered Poland and Ukraine. Adolf Hitler was a vegetarian and his favorite spot was the Eagle’s Nest in the pristine Alps.
In several interviews, Lasn mentioned his childhood in brief: birth in Estonia in 1942, his family’s escape to a German refugee camp toward the end of World War II and their immigration to Australian at age 7.
The Women of Australia website records that the first postwar Estonians and Latvians to immigrate to Australia “had been carefully chosen to show Australians that Baltic Displaced People were blond, blue-eyed and thoroughly assimilable.”
The selection process went beyond Aryan physical features. “A significant number of people from the Baltic countries, it was revealed, had fought or served in the SS,” writes Mark Aarons, author of “Sanctuary”. “The consequences would be a significant movement of ex-Nazis and Nazi collaborators into Australia.” Jewish refugees aboard some vessels “actually identified an SS guard or a Nazi official who had been responsible in their region for carrying out the Holocaust on the same ship.”
Since Estonia was behind the Eastern Front following Hitler’s surprise attack on the Soviet Union, the two main Nazi organizations were the Einsatz Group A commandos, who hunted down and murdered Jews, Roma (gypsies) and leftists; and the Estonian Sichenheit Police, who served as guards at the Kalevi-Liva concentration camp. When the Red Army rolled back into the Baltics at the end of 1944, these war criminals fled back to Germany.
“You can trace their war crimes, their recruitment by U.S. intelligence, their immigration into Australia and then you can trace it all the way through to them going onto the payroll of the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation,” Rose states, “the purpose being that they would help ASIO in anti-communist operations and the procurement of international intelligence.”
In an interview, [Adbusters'] Kalle Lasn recalled that at age 23 he joined the Australian Defence Force, where he was assigned to playing computer war games. In 1965, computerized wargaming was being introduced to Australia by the Cranfield Institute, under British military intelligence. The two main preoccupations of ASIO at the time was monitoring the passage of Soviet warships through the Malacca Strait on their voyage to Vladivostok and Western genocidal-level extermination of leftist-led liberation movements in Vietnam and Indonesia.
Following his discharge, Lasn set up a marketing company in Japan and immigrated to Canada with his Japanese bride. There in Vancouver,when starting Adbusters magazine, he espoused militant environmentalism and anti-consumerism with poster art reminiscent of Nazi propaganda images. In 2009, his radical organization received more than U.S. $300,000 in funding from the Tides Foundation, based in San Francisco.
Wikileaks’ Roots in Police Infiltration
The much-publicized guest of honor at the Occupy London protest was Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks. In the mid-1990s, Assange served as an infiltrator into hacker groups in Melbourne, Australia, under supervision of Australian-American criminologist Suelette Dreyfuss. Their co-authored 1997 book “Underground_Hacking, Madness and Obsession on the Electronic Frontier” was written from a police perspective. In that early era of hacking, Western intelligence agencies ran covert programs to incriminate young hackers for computer break-ins or drug charges, giving them the choice of either serving time in prison or working for state security.
At the creation of Wikileaks in 2007, under a U.S. intelligence program to pressure or “nudge” online critics of the 9-11 cover-up, criminologist Dreyfuss joined the advisory board with exiled Chinese dissidents Wang Dan, China Democracy Party founder Wang Youcai and Xiao Qiang, the chief editor of the Berkeley-based China Democracy Times. As recently as 2010, Julian Assange stated: “China is the enemy.”
[Ed. Note: Assange said that China -- not the US -- is the technological enemy of Wikileaks, giving this quote a different meaning.]
The anti-China links were recently expressed in dissident Chai Ling’s praise for the Occupy Boston protest, supremely hypocritical words considering she made her fortune as a stock analyst for Mitt Romney’s Bain Investment group, a vulture capital firm that launched takeovers of troubled companies and imposed cost-cutting with massive layoffs of employees.
Currently Assange is under the protection of British intelligence service at the country estate of Vaughan Smith, a former officer in the Queen’s Guards, a top army sniper, military-embedded filmmaker in the Kosovo and Afghan conflicts, and founder of the Frontline Club for war journalists. Smith is now in charge of vetting and releasing the U.S. Embassy cables.
Assange’s long connections with Western intelligence began in childhood with his tutelage in an Australian cult called Santiniketan Park Association, run by Anne Hamilton-Byrne. Her group acted as a training center for blond, blue-eyed children, which some cult experts charge was carrying out the “Lebensborn” project, a Nazi program to breed Aryan children.
Many of these children were subjected to sexual abuse for purposes of developing obedient agents. The Tavistock Institute in London devised the cruel mind-control methods by applying Freudian psychoanalysis theories of childhood trauma as key to psychological development.
The Nazi connections of the Wikileaks founder resurfaced more recently in Sweden, where his website was hosted by Pirate’s Bay, a company financed by far-right tycoon Carl Lundstrum. After selling his family’s Wasa cracker company to Sandoz, the pharmaceutical associated with the CIA’s program in LSD-induced mind-control experiments, Lundstrum has gone on to fund the rightist Pirate Parties which have been expanding across the German-speaking countries.
‘Mein Kampf’ as Game Plan
Earlier in the Occupy Wall Street protests, Reuters and other sources disclosed that Kalle Lasn’s Adbusters was funded through the Tides Foundation by financier George Soros. Why would a Jewish billionaire be funding a group linked to a Nazi past? In financing the Color Revolutions in Eastern Europe, Soros hired many anti-Russian activists from fascist family backgrounds.
[Ed. Note: George Soros donated $3.5 million to Tides, but denies the money was for Adbusters per Reuters.]
His apparent ease in dealing with fascists was rooted in his teenage years when Soros worked as an accountant for the Nazi Party in Hungary, keeping ledgers on confiscated Jewish properties. His collaboration was not unusual since entire brigades of Nazi-loyal Jews served in the Waffen SS against the Soviet Union, another of those hidden chapters of history.
A point to remember is that OWS was modeled after the Indignados (The Indignants) movement in Spain. The most sustained protest movements in the European financial crisis has been in opposition to Socialist governments in Spain and Greece. In Madrid, the Zapatero government has been struggling with the rightist secret society Opus Dei, which controls the “cajas”, which are regional banks run by Catholic priests.
The Socialists have been trying to bring the cajas, which control half of the country’s lending, under more transparent Spanish banking laws. The Indignados, whose long-distance marches reveal their roots in Catholic pilgrimages, are a weapon of the Franco fascists who are determined to overthrow the modernizing forces in Spain. (Similar subversion is transpiring across Asia, as partly revealed by Occupy protests in the region.)
The precedent for Occupy Wall Street comes from the handbook of fascist insurrection, Mein Kampf (My Struggle), written in prison by Adolf Hitler after his failed 1923 Munich putsch or coup against the Bavarian state assembly. His early autobiography was, in large part, an appeal to disgruntled rank-and-file activists to abandon their socialist parties to join his nationalist movement.
Although leaders of the far-right Thule Society regularly visited his jail cell, Hitler understood that well-fed and timid conservatives were unfit for the street battles that lay ahead against the leftist threat in Europe’s devastated economies. Fascist power could be won only by hungry and ambitious idealists, once their loyalty was transferred from the blue-collar labor unions to the brown-shirt storm-troopers.
If the revived Nazi and fascist movements succeed in restoring their ideology and regaining state power as they have done in Estonia, then NATO will complete its transformation into the new SS and the European Union into the Fourth Reich. Occupy Wall Street is a Trojan Horse for Nazism.
