Breckinridge Long is back in the news and not in a good way

This morning, when I checked my blog statistics, as I always do, I found that the my previous blog post about Breckinridge Long had gotten the most hits.

I wondered why so many people were interested in Breckinridge Long, so I checked the news to find out what is going on.  I found this news article with this headline:

Anti-Syrian Muslim Refugee Rhetoric Mirrors Calls to Reject Jews During Nazi Era

A photo similar to the one above is at the top of the news article. This photo allegedly shows Jewish men marching to the gas chamber at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Notice the train in the background; they have just gotten off a train.

This quote is from the beginning of the news article:

During the 1930s and early 1940s, the United States resisted accepting large numbers of Jewish refugees escaping the Nazi terror sweeping Europe, in large part because of fearmongering by a small but vocal crowd.

They claimed that the refugees were communist or anarchist infiltrators intent on spreading revolution; that refugees were part of a global Jewish-capitalist conspiracy to take control of the United States from the inside; that the refugees were either Nazis in disguise or under the influence of Nazi agents sent to commit acts of sabotage; and that Jewish refugees were out to steal American jobs.

Many rejected Jews simply because they weren’t Christian.

In recent days, similar arguments are being resurrected to reject Syrian refugees fleeing sectarian terrorists and civil war.

This is another quote from the same news article:

During congressional debate in 1940, John B. Trevor, a prominent Capitol Hill lobbyist, argued against a proposal to settle Jewish refugees in Alaska, claiming they would be potential enemies — and charging that Nazi persecution of the Jews had occurred “in very many cases … because of their beliefs in the Marxian philosophy.” Trevor had notably helped author the Immigration Act of 1924, a law designed to curb Jewish migration from Eastern Europe, in part because of anarchist Jewish Americans of Russian descent including Emma Goldman.

Rep. Jacob Thorkelson, a Republican from Montana, warned at the time that Jewish migrants were part of an “invisible government,” an organization he said was tied to the “communistic Jew” and to “Jewish international financiers.”

William Dudley Pelley, a leading anti-Semite and organizer of the “Silver Shirts” nationalist group, claimed that Jewish migration was part of a Jewish-Communist conspiracy to seize control of the United States. Pelley, whose organization routinely used anti-Semitic smears such as “Yidisher Refugees” and “Refugees Kikes,” attracted up to 50,000 to his organization by 1934.

In a previous blog post, I wrote the following about Otto Frank, the father of Anne Frank, who tried to escape the Nazis by coming to the United States, but he was denied entry because he had a criminal record (He had been convicted of cheating the customers of a bank that he owned.)

Begin Quote from previous blog post:

Anne Frank’s mother was an Orthodox Jew but her father was not very religious; he was not a  Zionist.  Besides that, the Franks didn’t qualify for the prisoner exchange camp at Bergen-Belsen because Otto Frank was a fugitive from justice.

In 1933, when Hitler came to power, Otto Frank was not in danger of being persecuted — he was in danger of being prosecuted.  That’s right, Otto Frank and his brother were both indicted for bank fraud in 1933, and were scheduled to be put on trial.  Otto Frank tried to get a visa to come to America, but was denied, so he escaped to Holland and entered the country illegally.  His family followed him a few months later.

Otto Frank had been preparing a hiding place for months, while he told everyone that the family was planning to escape to Switzerland. In July 1942, Margot Frank received a letter from the Zentralstelle für jüdische Auswanderung (Central Office for Jewish Emigration), ordering her to report to a work camp. The next day, the Frank family moved into the annex.




  1. The alleged effect of the resistance to Jewish immigration into America on the part of ‘evil American bigots’, is a myth. Quite few Jewish migrants came to America in those days because the very influent U.S. Zionists of that time prevented them from doing it. American bigots were as unable to shut the borders of America during the Schiff era (when large migratory flows flooded America under a huge wave of of Jewish migrants from Russia) as they are now. Pro-Zionist FDR and his Zionist friends wanted those people nowhere but in Palestine. U.S. Zionists didn’t even request a change in immigration quotas when their alleged ‘Holocaust’ was supposedly taking place. Orthodox twHistorians explain that by an alleged timidity of the Jewish/Zionist leaders of that time, but such an explanation can’t stand scrutinity for a minute when examining the self-confident personality and Chutzpah behavior of those Jewish/Zionist leaders.

    • You wrote: “Pro-Zionist FDR and his Zionist friends wanted those people nowhere but in Palestine.”

      I believe that your are correct.

      • Roosevelt knew what was really going on. Contrary to what he claimed for propaganda purposes in his wartime public statements, in October 1942, when Felix Frankfurter voiced his apprehensions about the fate of the Jews to Roosevelt, FDR told him not to worry because “the deported Jews” were “simply being employed on the Soviet frontier to build fortifications.” FDR had no good reasons to act otherwise as he did.

  2. Breckenridge Long was a visionary who couldn’t staunch the flow of Jewish refugees into the USA before, during and after WWII. “Operation Texas” was the name given to Lyndon Johnson’s clandestine US passport program for those refugees in Europe who could afford the kickbacks. I just finished FDR’s son-in-law Curtis B. Dahl’s book MY EXPLOITED FATHER-IN-LAW in which he describes Jewish refugees arriving in New York after the war with suitcases stuffed with Allied Occupation currency notes probably provided to the DPs via UNRAA and the printing plates traitorous U.S. Treasury Secretary Harry Dexter White turned over to the Soviets before British General Fredrick Morgan was relieved of his command of UNRAA for his anti-Semitic remarks about a “Second Exodus.”

    • The 2nd link is interesting — it has another link leading here: “The Zionist Plan For The Final Solution Of The Jewish Question”

      The term “Endlösung der Judenfrage” (Final Solution of the Jewish Question) along with the words “auswanderung” (emigration) and “evakuierung” (evacuation) appear in a July 1941 letter written by Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring…The term “Endlösung der Judenfrage” (Final Solution of the Jewish Question) appears in a February 1942 letter written by SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich…But the Nazis weren’t the first to use the term, that was the Zionists:

      In 1897 the National Jewish Association – Cologne published its programme (called ‘Theses’): (ii) Experience has shown that civic emancipation has fallen short of securing the social and cultural future of the Jewish people. The Final Solution of the Jewish Question lies therefore in the establishment of the Jewish State.

      So the phrase “Endlösung der Judenfrage” was given a sinister interpretation only later.

  3. OT

    Two fotos appear below: Rudolf Höss just before his execution at Auschwitz, and executions of some of those condemned to death after the Stutthof trials. I would not call either of these hangings, but that’s how these executions are usually described — clearly a trap was not used — the purpose of a trap/the drop is to break the neck and speed death — so these people were basically strangled to death — slowly strangled — I wonder if there has ever been any discussion in Poland about the impropriety and cruelty of these executions?

    • I have several photos of the gallows where Hoess was hanged on my website at

      It is my understanding that this gallows is a reconstruction; it is near the reconstructed gas chamber in the main camp. The original gallows was not saved because not many people were interested in Auschwitz until recently. I took the photos on my website in 1998 when I was the only American visitor there.

      Comment by furtherglory — November 19, 2015 @ 12:42 pm

    • a reconstruction

      It may be; but fotos of the day show it looked the same/very similar. Anyway, the point is they did not use a trap/drop, which means Höss died by slow strangulation. As did those executed for Stutthof.

  4. The great political debate of the western world in 2015 is whether to accelerate the race replacement policies pursued by the elite or slow it down. The former viewpoint is good for the Jewish community as it destroys the homogeneity of a European nation and is supported by such beacons of the enlightenment as Mr George Soros with billions of dollars.

    However there are also those Jews who wish to slow the importation of the whole of the Middle East into Europe . The battle between these two groups will determine how fast the decline of the west happens..

    • French President François Hollande said that the Paris attacks would not prompt his country to go back on its commitment to taking in 30,000 refugees over the next two years.

      This article actually has the idiotic-sounding headline “Will French president’s welcome of Syrian refugees stem fears?” — uhh, I would guess not, but who knows?

      • ” mama ” Merkel is importing between 10 and 15 thousand Africans and men from the middle east every day.

        • Bayern: Mehr als zwei Millionen Asylbewerber erwartet

          “Wenn der Andrang weiter so hoch bleibt, kommen bis zum Ende des Jahres nicht 1,5 Millionen, sondern weit über zwei Millionen Flüchtlinge nach Deutschland”, sagte ein Sprecher des bayerischen Innenministeriums der Augsburger Allgemeinen.

          The interior minister of Bavaria says that at the current rate, the total could reach 2m by the end of the year.

          • The CSU the ruling party in Bavaria is as guilty as Mama Merkel and its pathetic leader Herr Seehofer should appear before a court on charges of treason.

            Comment by peter — November 19, 2015 @ 12:17 pm

          • 2m by the end of the year

            Just so the scale is clear: that’s approx 4 cities the size of Leipzig, or 2 cities the size of Köln.
