"Say Goodbye Daddy": Belle Millman's Revenge - New York, 1926


FULL TEXT (Article 1 of 3): A young mother in the Bronx, estranged from her husband, lifted her 3-year-old son to the telephone yesterday and had him speak to his father.

‘Hello daddy,’ the father heard the child say.

‘Don’t say “Hello, daddy,”’ came the mother’s voice. ‘Say “Good-bye, daddy.’”

The child said it and a moment later the husband heard his wife’s voice, distinct and vindictive:

‘It seems that the only way I can get ahead of you is to kill the child.’

The receiver was hung up with a bang. The husband hurried out desperately to find the wife and child.

Three hours later a group of children playing near the 258th Field Artillery Armory at 195th Street, between Jerome and Reservoir Avenues, the Bronx, parted a clump of bushes and saw the body of a well-dressed woman lying there, a pistol by her side. A little way off, crumpled over a sand pail, with a toy shovel in his hand, lay a boy, dead. Each had been shot through the right temple.

~ Husband Makes Identification. ~

The children ran screaming to the street and passersby communicated with the police. A check in the woman’s purse gave a clue to her identity and before evening the identification was made certain by the husband, Joseph Millman, a manufacturing milliner of 64 West Thirty-seventh Street.

The double killing yesterday brought to a close nearly two years of difficulties between the husband and wife, and months of litigation over the custody of the child.

Millman and his wife, Belle, 27 years old, were married in 1922. Two years later she left home and started an action for separation, demanding custody of the boy and $25 a week alimony. Her petition was denied by Justice Robert F. Wagner. Less than a year later Millman and six other men raided his wife’s apartment and obtained evidence on which Millman sued for divorce. Mrs. Millman threatened to kill herself then if the divorce was granted. The evidence against her was insufficient, however, and the divorce was not granted.

~ He Wins Custody of Son. ~

But last November Millman went before Justice Richard P. Lydon and obtained custody of the boy. This was so crushing a blow to the mother, however, that a little later Millman and his attorney, Bernard H. Sandler, of 130 Broadway, made a supplementary agreement which was less harsh. Millman agreed to give his wife $350 to furnish a room in the apartment of her sister, Mrs. Ida Paly, at 2,552 University Avenue, the Bronx, give her the custody of the son for five days each week, pay all the boy’s expenses and allow her $30 a week for herself. Last month, however, Mrs. Millman began suit for counsel fees and heavier alimony through Attorney Charles Fredericks of 342 Madison Avenue. The case came up Friday before Justice Louis D. Gibbs in the Bronx Supreme Court.

The boy, Martin, it was brought out, had been operated upon six months before for mastoiditis and the father had been keeping him in the country home of his grandfather, Samuel Millman, near Hudson.

Millman wished to let his son say in the country to be sure his health was completely regained, and offered to pay his wife’s expenses to his father’s home to allow her to visit the child.

The court felt that the child should have his mother’s care, and Mrs. Millman pleaded earnestly that she also had a country place to which she would take him. Justice Gibbs ordered the child given into the custody of his mother, to take effect Monday, on condition that he be taken to the country.

As all were leaving the courtroom Millman whispered a piece of news to Sandler that had been disquieting him. His wife, he said, had broken into his apartment at 3,336 Rochambeau Avenue, the Bronx, and cut his pistol from the holster and stolen it, and she had also taken his gold watch.

Sandler immediately informed the Court of this.

“I’m afraid she may kill somebody in this case,” he said.

Justice Gibbs called Mrs. Millman back and questioned her minutely. She denied that she had ever had a pistol or that she even had seen her husband’s pistol.

She admitted taking the watch, however, and returned it. But she took an oath she had no pistol, and the Court believed her.

Outside the court house she ran up to her husband and said laughingly, but with a tinge of bitterness:

“I don’t suppose you’ll see me many times in court.”

~ Gives Child to Mother. ~

The difficulties were ended apparently, and on Monday Millman bought the child an entire of new clothing and delivered him into his mother’s custody.

Yesterday morning Mrs. Millman telephoned her husband at his office. She could not comply with the Justice’s condition that she take the child immediately to the country, she said. She had arranged, instead, to take a two-room apartment where she would keep the child with her and had given the landlord Millman’s name as reference.

Shortly before noon she telephoned again.

“I need $250 to help furnish that apartment,” Millman said his wife told him. “And I want you to sign the lease.”

“You’d better come and see me, then,” Millman replied. “I can’t discuss that over the telephone.”

His wife became furious at that, Millman said, and then put Martin up to the telephone to tell his father good-bye.

Millman hurried to his wife’s home, but she and the child were gone. The mother and the little boy must have wandered some time together. Peggy Lasanti, who runs a candy and notions store at 2,706 Jerome Avenue, near the Armory, remembered seeing them in her store at 3 o’clock. There the mother bought a tin pail and a shovel for Martin. From there, apparently, they went to the open space beside the armory where Mrs. Millman watched him play in the dirt. She must have shot him from a little distance as he played, the police said. There were no powder burns on his head.

District Attorney John E. McGeehan of the Bronx made a preliminary investigation yesterday afternoon.

“This is one of the saddest tragedies in my entire experience as Magistrate, Judge and District Attorney,” he said.

FULL TEXT (Article 3 of 3): New York, Aug. 14. – The scorching flames of an unreasonable love have taken a bitter toll and penned a tragic chapter in the lives of three persons, a 4-year-old boy, a mother and a father. Two of them – the mother and the child – are dead, and the third, the father, must live on trying to understand the consuming passion that snapped a sane mind in the twinkling of an eye and supplanted it with the mentality of a killer.

The story of the tragic suicide of pretty 27-year-old Belle Millman, who on August 3 last shot her son and then killed herself in a vacant lot in the Bronx here, must be taken up at the start and opening chapter of this tragedy is like the opening chapter of so many others, with love and companionship between a man and his wife supplying the major plot.

SWEETEST ROMANCE.

Joseph Millman, a wholesale milliner, with a prosperous business her married Belle in 1922. The marriage culminated a courtship of love. A son was born. Two years passed and the first shadow of the tragedy that was to snuff out two lives fell across the scene when Mrs. Millman left her husband and started an action for separation, demanding custody of the boy and $25 a week alimony. Her petition was denied by Justice Robert F. Wagner.

Another year passed with two people estranged. The second blow was struck at a possible reconciliation when Millman and six other men raided his wife’s apartment and obtained evidence upon which an action for divorce was instituted.

“It’s all a frameup,” was the answer made by the young wife when attorneys for the husband lodged charges of infidelity couched in legal terms. However, the divorce was not granted and the wife, who said she would destroy herself if the law took cognizance of her husband’s allegations, again went upon her way.

SON IS SHARED.

All the while four-year-old Martin Millman had been living with his mother. The bitterness that must have welled up in two hearts welled up higher in the heart of the mother when, last November, Millman went before Justice Richard P. Lydon here and asked for the custody of his son. The pain that pretty Belle Millman was capable of feeling pierced her heart when her arms were robbed of her child.

The husband, for the sake of his sorrowing wife, made a supplementary agreement then, whereby Mrs. Millman was to be allowed the companionship of her child five days each week. More than this Millman also agreed to pay $30 a week for herself.

Despite these concessions, Mrs. Millman took recorse to the law again, less than a month before her death and began suit for $500 counsel fees and heavier alimony. The case was heard a few days before the tragedy and it developed that the boy had undergone an operation just before that and was living in the country with his grandfather. On the father’s plea that that the boy be allowed to remain in the country and recuperate, the presiding judge ordered that the child be placed in the care of the mother, provided she, too, would take a place in the country and nurse him.

LAST COURT SCENE.

A ray of light seemed to shine through the gathering gloom of unhappiness between Millman and his wife when she agreed to this arrangement. But once again the bony finger of tragedy was knocking on the door, impatient that the last bitter act be played. As all were leaving the court Millman confided in his attorney that his wife had broken into his apartment and had stolen his pistol. The attorney immediately informed the court and the woman was called back and submitted to a close questioning. Under oath she swore she had taken no pistol and cold justice, which beckons out with the passions of men and women, if those passions are cloaked in legal raiment, believed her.

Outside the court house she ran up to her husband and said laughingly:

“I don’t suppose you’ll see me many times more in court.”

There was a ring of bitterness in her voice.

But men make the best of things and Millman was no different than the average man. Legally, everything had been settled and so the following Monday he bought an entire new outfit of clothing for his son and restored him to the arms of his mother.

In the night that ensued death stalked the stage to link arms with the sinister figure of tragedy until now the prompter in this queer drama of searing emotions. The following morning Mrs. Millman telephoned her husband at his office. She told him that she could not immediately comply with the court’s agreement and take their son to the country. Instead, she said, she had arranged to take a small apartment  here and would keep the child with her.

TRAGIC PHONE CALL.

“I need $250 to help furnish the apartment,” she told her husband, “and I want you to sign the lease.”

“You’d better come and see me then,” Millman replied. “I can’t discuss that over the telephone.”

Did the mind of pretty Belle Millman suddenly snap at this point? Did she suddenly change from a woman to an unreasoning destoyer or were the tragic events that followed the crashing climax of a plan she had been hatching through the night? The answer cannot be given.

“We can’t live together any more and the only way I can spite you is to kill the child.” This was the message that burned into the ear of Millman after he asked his wife to come to his office and talk over the signing of a lease for the apartment she wanted.

Next came the voice of the child – happy, joyous:

“Hello, daddy!”

The words were like a tender melody, mounting for the moment from above the grumbling drums of tragedy.

“Don’t say ‘hello daddy,’” broke in the voice of the mother. “Say ‘goodby.’”

‘Goodby daddy,” and the receiver banged down.

Millman, in the grip of a strange fear he could not understand, rattled the receiver hook. But the wire buzzed emptily.

THE BODIES ARE FOUND

About 2 o’clock in the afternoon three small children were going to the movies. They cut across the big, vacant lot at One Hundred and Ninety-fifth street, between Jerome and Reservoir avenues, in the Bronx. The youngest peered into the bushes and screamed. The two others looked with him, and then all three ran crying to the corner.

They blubbered to Joe Diskin, an attendant the Field Artillery Armory near by, who called a policeman. They found the young wife, dead, with a .22-caliber bullet hole in her right temple. Beside her lay a small boy, dead, with a similar hole in his right temple. His body was folded over a sand pail and shovel he had been playing with. The woman’s hand clutched a revolver, in which were two empty cartridges.

There is no epilogue. Death had held its carnival and left behind its husks. The scorching flame of an unreasonable love had taken its bitter toll. The authorities have not tried to explain the motives that led pretty Belle Millman into her mad act. It is something that cannot be explained upon a police report. Somewhere something was warped. Was it the heart or the mind?

Cases such as this one from 1926 are left out of studies on domestic violence done by experts – who, almost always, are adherents of Marxism-based social theories  –  resulting in distorted conclusions which support the policy preferences of those professors and researchers who had joined the academic field in order to shape public policy.

Bess Fern Baldwin Murdered Her 5-Year-Old Son to Express Anger Toward Her Husband – Missouri, 1987


FULL TEXT: Marshfield – A rural Niangua woman killed her 5-year-old son because she was angry with her husband, investigators testified at a preliminary hearing Tuesday afternoon.

Two criminal investigators with the Missouri State Highway Patrol said Bess Fern Baldwin told them told them her husband David couldn’t keep a job and had drinking problems.

“She said, ‘I was so mad. I was so mad. It’s the only way I could keep David from hurting us anymore,’” Sgt. Jack Merritt testified in Webster County Associate Circuit Court. “She expressed her anger in that context.”

At the end of the hearing, Baldwin, 33, was bound over for trial in the death of her son Clayton. Arraignment is set for 9 a. m. Dec. 15.

Baldwin is charged with second-degree murder. She is free on $100,000 bail.

Clayton Baldwin was killed Oct. 1 as he slept in the family house on Webster County M about eight miles northeast of Niangua.

Her husband, who didn’t attend the preliminary hearing, was close to Clayton, testimony indicated.

During the two-hour hearing, Bess Baldwin kept her head propped on her clasped hands and cried as law enforcement officials described their investigation. They said she wan’t suspected in his death until she blurted out “I hyurt my baby” when she returned home a week after the killing.

After admitting she killed Clayton, Baldwin said it was accidental, testimony showed. Later she told investigators the incident was prompted by domestic problems with her husband.

Sheriff Eugene Fraker testified that Baldwin first told authorities she picked up Clayton at her sister’s home, took him and put him into bead. She also called a family friend in an effort to learn her husband’s whereabouts. While outside the house, she heard a popping sound.

“She answered me that she saw no one, saw no car, saw no lights,” Franker testified.

A .410-guage shotgun belonging to Clayton’s 12-year-old brother, Who wasn’t home, was discovered near the house.

Sgt. Tom Martin, a criminal investigator with the highway patrol, led the investigation because county officials were already grappling with the Sept. 25 shooting deaths of seven family members near Elkland.

Martin said Baldwin gave conflicting statements about her son’s death.

When Baldwin decided to return home a week after the incident, Martin and other investigators escorted her on the assumption that she could provide more details.

They were walking toward the older brother’s bedroom, where the shotgun was kept.

“She just stopped sobbing and said, ‘I hurt my son,’” Martin testified.

At first, Baldwin told authorities that Clayton was accidentally killed after he got the shotgun when she heard strange noises.

Later this evening, Baldwin was taken to the highway patrol’s Troop D headquarters in Springfield. She confessed that she killed Clayton because she was mad at her husband, Martin testified.

Samira Lupidi, Maternal Filicide As Revenge – 2015, England



***

Twenty-four year old Samira Lupidi, living in Mint Street, Bradford, West Yorkshire, England, was staying at a women’s refuge in Heckmondwike when she took a knife and plunged it nine times into the breasts of eacher of her sleeping daughters: Evelyn Lupidi, 3, and Jasmine Weaver, 17 months.

On November 17 Farzana Kauser, a support worker went to the flat in the refuge. Samira Lupidi opened the door and ran out the room. She was on the telephone speaking in English and Italian. A social worker said she heard her saying: ‘It’s his fault. Now he has a reason to kill me. If I can’t have them then he can’t have them,’ and ‘I hurt them, I killed them.’ Her hands were covered in blood.

Samira entered the Heckmondwike refuge with the two children claiming her boyfriend, Carl Weaver (31), father of Jasmine (17 mo.), was going to kill the woman.

The child-killing mom admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility but denied that she committed murder. She was nevertheless guilty on May 17, 2016, of two murders by a jury composed of six men and six women. They deliberated the verdict for a mere 90 minutes. She was sentenced to life in prison, with a minimum of 24 years served by Mr Justice Edis.

The judge said: “I believe you killed these children in a spasm of violence triggered by a weekend of violent arguments.”

I LOVE Hate Speech


My hate speech: Genders and races I hate, Hate, HATE!

Genders I hate (“gender” is, according to orthodox politically correct Neo-Marxist Royalty, a cultural construction):

1) The censorious gender, the one that creates algorithms that censor anti-Marxist information. I hate them.
2) The equity gender that, like Khmer Rouge, seeks a utopia of the sort satirized in Kurt Vonnegut’s “Harrison Bergeron.” I hate them.
3) The gender that attempts to make boys into girls by: a) banning phonics, b) by radically reducing needed physical activity, c) drugging them to make it easier for semi-educated misandric so-called “teachers” to control in their perverse brainwashing centers (“schools”). I hate them.
4) I hate the gender that is identifiable as “silicon fascism,” a gender therm that describes tech totalitarians who are trying to socially engineer the world to fit their malinformed and perverse Cultural Marxist anti-science ideology. I hate this silicon fascism gender.

Races I hate (“race” is, according to orthodox politically correct Neo-Marxist Royalty, a cultural construction):

1) The anti-“whiteness” race, the one that imitates the anti-Jewish Nazi ideology and combines it with the Gramscian “hegemony” marginalization strategy resulting in an agenda for the extermination of “whiteness.”

Fact: Weissen raus. = Juden raus.

I hate these anti-“whiteness” people.

2) The anti-humanity race, the one that prefers animals over humans. I hate these anti-humans. I hate these beast supremacist scum.
3) I hate the utopianist control-freak race that creates and enforces authoritarian bureaucracies that enforce totalitarian affirmative action and politically correct “equity,” which destroys institutions and individuals by rejecting merit. I despise these members of the control-freak race.
4) The race that promotes IQ-genetics denialism and sex-biology denialism, resulting in corrupt sadistic pedagogy (Columbia Teachers College) that creates systems that abuse children with above average IQ and abuses children that are members of the sex that requires greater quantities of physical activity and more reason-based learning methods.

Gender and race are merely social constructions, right? I hate, Hate, HATE these genders and races!

All the above is HATE SPEECH, and I LOVE it!

If you don’t like it go throw yourself off a minaret, or go get tortured to death in a socialist gulag, or go death-panel yourself, or go “post birth abortion” abort yourself, or go lock yourself up in a college “safe space” padded cell.

Long live hate speech!

How to Determine a Therapist’s Competency, Scientific Knowledge and Ethics


Social workers, therapists, psychologists and counselors who are not tainted by misandric bigotry and who bear a scientifically sound understanding of the biological differences between the two sexes (or “genders”) are rare. Therefore it is rare for a heterosexual male to be able to locate a truly competent and ethical practitioner.

Here is a prototype for a qualifying questionnaire. It is, admittedly, a brusque and heavy-handed text, but is nevertheless a good starting point for discussion and for the development of a better and more practically usable text.

16 qualifying questions for the service provider to answer:

1)      Do you recognize the fact that that the concept “gender spectrum” is a fraud first perpetuated in the late 1940s by pedophile sado-masochist, child molesting zoologist named Alfred Kinsey (and later by the discredited Dr. John Money) and is based on corrupt data and that the supposed spectrum (meaning frequency distribution that is uniform between the Female pole and the Male pole) actually involves a modified bimodal distribution that clusters heavily around Male and Female

2)      Do you recognize the fact that “white privilege” is a bigoted racist slur promoted by anti-science post-modernists which expresses a prejudice against individual rights in favor of collectivist group guilt?

3)      Do you recognize the fact that “male privilege” is a bigoted sexist slur promoted by anti-science post-modernists which expresses a prejudice against individual rights in favor of collectivist group guilt?

4)      Do you recognize the fact that “heterosexual privilege” is a bigoted heterophobic slur promoted by anti-science post-modernists which expresses a prejudice against individual rights in favor of collectivist group guilt?

5)      Do you recognize the fact that a multivariable analysis of the supposed “gender pay gap” says that it doesn’t exist as a form of oppressive discrimination but is rather a matter of individual choice?

6)      Do you recognize the fact a person’s sex is biologically determined in utero and is not the product of what post-modernists call “social construction?”

7)      Do you have experience in coaching clients how to deal with female “relational aggression?”

8)      Do you recognize that misandry among counselors, social workers and psychologists is rampant and that a service provider’s misandry is harmful to clients – and therefore unethical?

9)      In couple’s counseling do you recognize that putting all the blame on the male, except in those specific individually analyzed cases in which it is just, is an example of misandry?

10)   Are you familiar with biology-based qualities of the male-specific mind, its reasoning and emotional structure?

11)   Are you aware that there is such a thing as objective fact and that truth is not arbitrary? Or are you a radical subjectivist, or a post-modernist?

12)   Are you aware of the crucial need for natural (“biological”) father-involvement for children, especially boys?

13)   Are you aware that misandry (including misandry in the courts) as well as neo-Marxist anti-white bigotry are extremely stressful for clients?

14)   Are you aware that intelligence and much of personality is heavily determined by genetics, yet that such qualities are genetic potentialities that are affected by environmental factors.

15)   Are you aware that the suicide rate for Males in the US is three-and-a-half times that of Female and that Male science-informed misandry-free support for depressed males is rarely made available? Are you familiar with these facts published by American Foundation for Suicide Prevention for the US: a) white males accounted for 7 of 10 suicides in 2016; b) The rate of suicide is highest in middle age — white men in particular?

16)   If you did not answer yes on the 15 questions above are you interested in gaining science-based training based on objective and empirical Male Studies findings?

A personal question for therapists and counselors: Are you afraid of being personally or professionally persecuted for expressing truths which violate the strictures of anti-science utopianist dogma (of political correctness, of post-modernism, of identity politics, of Neo-Marxism, of “social justice” equality-of-outcome ideology)?

The New Scapegoat: “Whiteness”


What does this subject have to do with Misandry? Feminism is an ideology of “social justice.” What is the mindset of the “social justice” ideology? These two articles will offer a hint:

John J. Walters, “Communism Killed 94 Million in 20th Century, Feels Need to Kill Again,” Reason, Mar. 13, 2013.

AFP, “Top Khmer Rouge leader tells court he fought for ‘social justice’,” Daily Mail (London), Feb. 18, 2016.

***

The greatest irony in all history:

For Jewish Marxists (such as most of the leaders of the Frankfurt School) “Westernism” (now called “whiteness”) explicitly does not include “Jewishness.” Yet for most Marxism-inspired POC (“persons of color”) the concept and term “whiteness” does indeed include “Jewishness”; in fact, due to the high achievement (genetic IQ) of Jews, they are regarded as possessing extra “whiteness,” and thus are despised by adherents to the social justice ideology under the rubric of “abolishing whiteness.”

The reality of this “stealth anti-Semitism” is a very painful reality we have to face with courage. One might be able to characterize the endgame of this ideological trend in the following equation: “Weissen raus.” = “Juden raus.”

***

CHRONOLOGICAL “professor watch” list:

We are told that the following attributes of “whiteness” need to be eradicated:
  • Algebraic and geometry skills (Guttierez)
  • Civility (Rudick)
  • Free speech (Gillborn)
  • Merit (Berichini)
  • Rigor in science (Riley)

We observe four distinct, yet sometimes overlapping, definitions of “witeness” used by anti-“whiteness” intellectuals and activists:



1)      It is a “social construction” (without biological reality) (Fredrickson, Caputo)

2)      It is a “system of oppression” (Allen, Ignatiev)

3)      It is biological but derives from a genetic deformity: the melanin theory (Welsing)

4)      It is a real and genetic (DNA-based) category (Tillet, Ciccariello-Maher, Daniels, Martinez)

1970 – Welsing, Dr. Frances Cress – Prof Psychiatry (MD, 1962, Howard U) – Practiced in Washington DC hospitals – “Frances Cress Welsing (born Frances Luella Cress; March 18, 1935 – January 2, 2016) was an American Afrocentrist psychiatrist. Her 1970 essay, The Cress Theory of Color-Confrontation and Racism (White Supremacy), offered her interpretation on the origins of what she described as white supremacy culture.” “In The Isis Papers: The Keys to the Coilors (1991) she described white people as the genetically defective descendants of albino mutants. She wrote that due to this "defective" mutation, they may have been forcibly expelled from Africa, among other possibilities. Racism, in the views of Welsing, is a conspiracy "to ensure white genetic survival". [Wikipedia]

1975 – Allen, Theodore William "Ted" (1919–2005) – best known for his pioneering writings since the 1960s on "white skin privilege" and the "invention" of the white race, particularly his seminal Class Struggle and the Origin of Racial Slavery: The Invention of the White Race, published as a pamphlet in 1975, and published the next year in expanded form. He stressed that the white race was invented as "a ruling class social control formation."; By 1997, historian George M. Fredrickson of Stanford University wrote that "the proposition that race is 'a social and cultural construction,' has become an academic cliché," but Allen was not satisfied with that proposition and he emphasized that “the ‘white race’ must be understood, not simply as a social construct (rather than an genetic phenomenon), but as a ruling class social control formation.”

1991 – Roedinger, David A. – Foundation Distinguished Professor of American Studies and History – U of Kansas, Lawrence – Roediger's book, The Wages of Whiteness: Race and the Making of the American Working Class, was published in 1991.

Welsing, Dr. Frances Cress – Prof Psychiatry (MD, 1962, Howard U) – Practiced in Washington DC hospitals – 1970 – “Frances Cress Welsing (born Frances Luella Cress; March 18, 1935 – January 2, 2016) was an American Afrocentrist psychiatrist. Her 1970 essay, The Cress Theory of Color-Confrontation and Racism (White Supremacy), offered her interpretation on the origins of what she described as white supremacy culture.” “In The Isis Papers: The Keys to the Colors (1991) she described white people as the genetically defective descendants of albino mutants. She wrote that due to this "defective" mutation, they may have been forcibly expelled from Africa, among other possibilities. Racism, in the views of Welsing, is a conspiracy "to ensure white genetic survival". [Wikipedia]

The old, now obsolete, Scapegoat was “Jewishness”; example

NAZI PROPAGANDA

FROM: Kurt Hilmar Eitzen, “Ten Responses to Jewish Lackeys.” 1936

Argument 10: “Can you live with the uproar and accept responsibility for the misery that the laws of the Third Reich bring to thousands of Jewish families?” — Counterargument: “It is almost a miracle that absolutely nothing has happened to Jews in Germany, but rather that only gradually the rights they stole from the Germans in politics and culture have been restored.” (Alfred Rosenberg). But even if a few hundred Jewish families in Germany really did have to go hungry, what is that against the many millions of German families that the Jew murdered over the course of centuries through wars, revolutions, and civil strife, not to mention those ruined through usury and fraud. “In the battle between the races, there is no truce. If you are determined finally to defend yourself, German people, then be pitiless!” (Adolf Hitler).

A Neologism:

Cultural creationism – an anti-scientific pseudo-religious belief in a principle of fundamentalist “cultural construction.” This belief denies biology, genetics and evolution. The concept is related to Russian socialist Lamarkianism. Psychologically, this belief is a form of magical thinking, characteristic of children and superstitious persons.
