Buying Hitler


Mein Kampf becomes an ebook bestseller

Digital editions of Adolf Hitler’s fascist screed, in less public format, attract surge in readers


The Today programme (08:24) reports, with a shudder, that interest in Hilter’s Mein Kampf has risen…it is number one bestseller in its Amazon category.

We are told….It’s an important book because it influenced millions of people…and post war it still does…on the Far Right.

We are told it can come with a health warning for readers…..

Mein Kampf is an evil book but it is important to read it…for all who care to safeguard democracy.


We were told it’s had a following all over the world…including India and the Middle East.



Mishal Husain asks…‘Why India?’

Why  the interest in just India from Mishal Husain you might ask….because it isn’t Indians chasing Jews from Europe once again….surely relevant to the topic under discussion.

It is certain fundamentalists who read an equally disturbing book that is perfectly legal to buy, indeed praised and admired by many…possibly those who haven’t actually read it.

A book that Churchill compared to Mein Kampf:

“All was there—the programme of German resurrection, the technique of party propaganda; the plan for combating Marxism; the concept of a National-Socialist State; the rightful position of Germany at the summit of the world.  Here was the new Koran of faith and war: turgid, verbose, shapeless, but pregnant with its message.”

Or another British Prime Minister, William Gladstone, who called the Koran an “accursed book” and once held it up during a session of Parliament, declaring: “So long as there is this book there will be no peace in the world.”


When the BBC starts to examine the contents of the Koran in as rigorously challenging and uncompromising  manner as it looks at Mein Kampf, and indeed the Christian Bible,  we might get some genuine, if inconvenient, truths.

    The thought police, if not the real ones, will be knocking on your door at 3 am for saying such things. The truth is not something this country likes any more Alan. Look what happened to Tommy Robinson, vilified, harassed, imprisoned, his family attacked, a broken man. And it’s for sure that our PM, who has the talent of looking both ways at once, as well as the men of straw at the HoC will not be so enthusiastic to see the truth either. The BBC will of course invite you onto QT to be booed at.
    You have more courage than I and I wish you the best.


  2. Pounce says:

    I just wonder how long it is before the bBC reinvent Hitler as:
    Misunderstood, a peaceful man and a victim of the Joooooo.


  3. chrisH says:

    Founding Father of the EU Project with his Green Pagan worship-his Catholic pretences and love of pomp-his Darwin Eugenicist convictions that come easily to all Socialists( National AND International)-his rigged plebiscites and democratic sham verdicts to remove any opposition sine die-his veggie sentimentality and anti-smoking vehemence.
    Oh, and he too wanted one currency, one European volk, not a ragbag of nations and one Leader…he was well ahead of his time.
    And he loved Islam for what it represented to the Jew and the true Christian that might not want any of this…and he rather liked their methods too.
    Reciprocated too by the Mufti at the time.


  4. flexdream says:

    Hitler is used as a bogey man by the left but rattling his old bones doesn’t work any more. It’s like the label ‘neo-Nazi’ which was sometimes used to shut down discussion, as is the label ‘far right’. Those word spells are losing their power. Mein Kampf is no more dangerous than the Koran, the Thoughts of Chairman Mao or the Communist Manifesto.


  5. David Preiser (USA) says:

    Why not discuss the elephant in the room? Because where Mohammedans around the world are concerned (assuming the surge in sales isn’t down to a bunch of UKIP supporters suddenly getting WH Smith accounts, right, BBC?), Husain, the Today producers and most BBC staff already know why there’s interest, and they find it perfectly understandable.

    So no need to ask the expert about that at all, and he needn’t have been nervous and stumbled early on over trying to assure everyone that we oughtn’t assume reasons why people would be suddenly interested. Husain tried to ask “who” once, but I think she got away with it. She knows perfectly well, but decided it wasn’t that important, and the expert quickly mentioned India as a way out. All those nasty Hindus, eh? Hey, maybe they just like the familiar symbol on the cover. But she asked once, job done, all complaints dismissed as they got it about right.

    It’s a dishonest discussion without mentioning the Jewish/Muslim angle and instead hem and haw over vague weasel words.


  6. Alex says:

    Again, here we have evidence of appalling and highly patronizing BBC bias, censorship and appeasement. It’s all there. The BBC will NOT have a bad word spoke of Muslims. They are simply above all criticism and worthy of special treatment at the BBC. This is dangerous stuff.


  7. thoughtful says:

    There is a growing school of thought that Hitler may have converted to Islam before his death. Unfortunately because it had to be secret at the time, there is little evidence to prove it.
    We do however know that he held Islam in high regard and had several private meetings with the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini.
    Post war when they were able to several high ranking Nazis openly converted to Islam.

    Have a read from these interesting pages.


    • The Highland Rebel says:

      Nazism –
      Eradication of the Jewish people.
      Eradication of Christianity.
      World domination through violece.

      Islam –
      Eradication of the Jewish people.
      Eradication of Christianity.
      World domination through violence.

      It’s interesting that Churchill was barred from broadcasting on the BBC in the 1930’s warning about the rise of Hitler and Nazism because they thought him racist and ‘Naziphobic’

      Some things never change.


    • David Kay says:

      historians like to say hitler and the nazi’s were anti religious, but the oath of the SS says otherwise

      “What is your oath ?” – “I vow to you, Adolf Hitler, as Führer and chancellor of the German Reich loyalty and bravery. I vow to you and to the leaders, that you set for me, absolute allegiance, till death. So help me god !”

      “So you believe in a god ?” – “Yes, I believe in a supreme being.”

      “What do you think about a man who does not believe in a god ?” – “I think he is overbearing, megalomaniac and foolish; he is not adequate for our society.”


      • Chris says:

        Socialists are all anti religion, because socialism is a religion in itself.
        Unless it is a “brown” religion. They don’t care about them as they don’t feel “brown” people are civilized enough for socialism…just like Hitler!


      • Chris says:

        Socialists are all anti religion, because socialism is a religion in itself.
        Unless it is a “brown” religion, in which case they don’t care about them as they don’t feel “brown” people are civilized enough for socialism…just like Hitler!


      • Phil Ford says:

        The Nazis were very much against all established faiths. Hitler waged a personal war against the Vatican during his entire time in power and spoke often of his secret wish to wipe out Catholicism in particular – he played a long, tortuous game with the Vatican, whilst slowly tightening the noose around Catholic priests and their supporters within the Reich (and in the conquered territories).

        Himmler, meanwhile, wanted to create a new ‘religion’ for the Nazis, in which The Fuehrer was the new godhead and established faiths were swept away in the grand visions for the Reich. This is from where so much of the occultist guff stems. Himmler saw ‘his’ SS in particular as new form of Knights Templar and set about creating pseudo-religious ceremonies around the higher echelons of SS membership. Mein Kampf was to become the new ‘bible’ and was to have been placed in all the new Nazi places of worship (it had already been a mandatory gift to newlyweds at every wedding ceremony within the Reich since Hitler’s accession to power, coincidentally helping to make The Fuehrer a millionaire well before war eventually broke out).

        In the end, a natural ideological affinity between the Nazis and Islam was almost inevitable, given that both ideologies shared so many of the same aims, most especially when it came to the matter of the Jews. Notably, as the war waged on and things began to go down the crapper for the ‘Thousand Year Reich’ it was Himmler who set about recruiting Islamic battalions into his beloved SS – hardly a definition of the ‘pure Aryan’ Hitler might have had in mind for his ‘master race’, but needs must, when Germany found itself surrounded on all sides and was quickly running out both men and materials with which to wage its war.

        But don’t go looking to the BBC to recount any of this – historical facts are often problematic for the BBC because they don’t conform to the worldview and therefore disturb the narrative. The only reason I ever found out that muslims had been recruited into the SS was because I turned to the history books – and I was staggered to learn such a fact.


  8. stuart says:

    hitler was a great admirer of muslims and islam,just look at in world war 2 in the balkans when the ss set up units called the bosnian muslim blackshirts to kill and murder innocent yugoslavian men,women and children in there 100s of thousands in the most brutal and horrific way,the favoured way of killing by the bosnian muslim blackshirts was beheading,that may come as no surprise,what annoys me about this is the way the left wing historians try to hide the involvemt of muslims in the nazi war machine in world war 2,they hide this collaberation with the nazis well away in the archives for reasons only they know,be in no doubt nazism and islamism are 2 cheeks of the same backside.


  9. Sir Arthur Strebe-Grebling says:

    I have read Das Kapital, and even occasionally buy The Guardian because I want to try to understand what drives the loony lefties. But that doesn’t mean that I subscribe to their contents, any more than the bBBC should assume that readers of Mein Kampf are followers of its author.


  10. therealguyfaux says:

    What will be interesting to see is whether Mein Kampf, being such a well-purchased and presumably read e-book, will be recognised for many of its home truths– for Heaven’s sake, not those of any German racial purity, or any of that sort of guff– but its acknowledgment that, in too many cases, the populace are basically morons in the aggregate, and are easily led around by someone audacious enough to want to do it.

    Of course, Der Fuhrer pointed the bony finger of wrath at his enemies both within and without his movement and his side of the political spectrum, saying it was they who were leading the Germans down the garden path– and that he was the Deliverer from this horrifying state of affairs.

    One doesn’t need to wrack one’s brains very hard to come up with all sorts of modern equivalents, and it is only the fact of Hitler’s crimes against humanity in the following decades which makes what’s being done now small beer. Of course, time and again we are told to refrain from such hyperbole as to compare someone to Hitler– “Godwin’s Law,” of the inevitability of the ghost of the Nazis being invoked, comes to mind– but one is reminded of the old sly rejoinder to the blusterer who invents his own set of facts: “No, do proceed– as a BS’er myself, I really do enjoy hearing BS done well, as you’re doing right now.” It is the study of how to recognise such BS’ers that Hitler was engaged in, as he was all the while running his OWN line of BS by doing it, that we can profit from reading about. And knowing how to rumble someone for the BS’er they are, after having heard a master BS’er himself tell you how it’s done, as he shouts, “Squirrel!” when he is then (justly) accused himself, is a lesson we all can take and apply to today.

    Mein Kampf a best seller in Turkey –


  12. AngusPangus says:

    Mein Kampf/My Struggle/My Jihad

    Makes sense.


  13. The Sage says:

    But surely Adolf Hitler was a National Socialist not a Fascist. Benito Mussolini was a Fascist – and, all things being equal, a rather good one.
    There is a difference.


    • Phil Ford says:

      Were the NSDAP really socialists, though? This is a question that has beleaguered every retelling of the rise and fall of the Third Reich that I have read.

      The best and most honest conclusion I can come to is that the Nazi Party might have had its roots in a true socialist movement but economic pragmatism and not a little in-fighting (‘The Night of the Long Knives’) eventually eradicated almost all traces of its socialist origins as it moved further towards true a form of unfettered totalitarian fascism.

      I still feel uncomfortable about labeling the Nazis as ‘far right’, given that so much of their ideology revolved around the brutal suppression of the very concept of ‘the individual’ and embraced a ‘cult of personality’ in much the same way that that other genocidal murderer, Stalin, was busy demonstrating so effectively at the same time in Soviet Russia.

      It’s a very tricky issue. And there is no getting away from the fact that Hitler began as a socialist and continued to expound pseudo-socialist ideas right up until the end, including a grand vision for a ‘European Union’ of conquered territories, controlled from the centre (‘Germania’).

      History: tricky stuff.


      • chrisH says:

        Well said Phil.
        I note that word Socialisme/us in the NSDAP acronym and choose to take it at face value.
        That said, I know that it`s a convenient flag to bash the “decent” aspects of a faith that includes Frank Field for example.
        Given how much a free pass that Socialism gets from the bien-pensants…from Mao to Hollande via Milibands and Toynbees etc…I guess it`s no surprise that ex “Socialists” like myself choose to sharpen the flagpole and then shaft the enemy once I`ve tries to batter them about the head with it.
        God knows they`d do the same with me-and stick me in a gulag or a North Korean psychiatric facility afterwards.
        But you`ve argued well, and feel your take is more true than mine.
        “The truth doesn`t lie in the middle, but at both extremes”…wish I could remember who said that!


      • Chris says:

        Socialism is totalitarian fascism.
        It is a economic and social system which does not allow for people to operate outside of it and with liberty.
        Thats why all marxist socialist states end in murder of those deemed incapable of being socialist (Jews etc), sent to gulags, shot in paddy field for wearing glasses, or raped/ abused into being “socialist” personalities -


  14. John Alexander says:

    If anyone needs convincing of the socialist nature of the National Socialists they should watch the Nazi film about the sinking of the Titanic.

    It was the most costly Nazi film up to that time and there isn’t an evil Jew in sight. The film just bores on about the blood sucking English capitalists.

    There’s an excerpt from the film in the post “Titanic Lie” at:


  15. pah says:

    Of course the one book which tops the genocide list is ‘Silent Spring’ but don’t expect that to get much of a kicking on the BBC.

    Why India, Mishal? Perhaps 177 million Muslims might give her a clue.
