Nazis sought to replace Christianity with “religion of nature”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant ShowWilliam Kay joined me to talk about his new book, The Green Swastika, which chronicles "the early years of the German environmentalist movement and the ecological views and efforts of leading Nazis."

Although the Third Reich remained an "ostensibly" Christian county, William explains that Nazi elites were anti-Christian and sought to replace it with a paganistic "religion of nature".

WATCH our discussion to see how William found a wealth of literature on the overlap of fascism and nature, and why he thinks the writings of top Nazi's like Himmler read like "a Greenpeace tract".

The US really is no better, they’ve just spent billions upon billions of dollars cleaning up the worst of their own messes.

Complete BS. The socialists had no accountability so they absolutely destroyed the environment on a scale that is incomprehensible. Yes, the US and other nations have made huge messes but nowhere near the scale of the socialists. Not even close. The Aral sea is one example . The socialists completely dried it up and now the chemical laden dust blows around the countryside.

At least the democratic system holds people accountable so, like you said, it gets cleaned up, Not so with your socialist pals. And how are things coming in China?

At any rate I can see you did not watch the video which is obvious by your attempt at moral equivalency. Not even close. Still wanting to believe lies, I see.

I’m not able to swing by as often as I used to (busy researching), however, it’s really something to see our long term troll posting on one of her monomania topics. Same old, same old. Peace Andrew!

It is time to recognize the paralells between Nazism and socialism It should come as no surprise because Nazis were / are socialists and the anti-Christian intentions of both is no secret.

In the words of Nazi ideologist Gregor Strasser:
“We are socialists. We are enemies, deadly enemies, of today’s capitalist economic system with its exploitation of the economically weak, its unfair wage system, its immoral way of judging the worth of human beings in terms of their wealth and their money, instead of their responsibility and their performance, and we are determined to destroy this system whatever happens!”

Same book. Different cover.

Andrew, there is no greater ecological disaster than a third world slum. Whatever wealth generation can be made to remediate that is good for the environment.

The OBSESSOCORP Packaging Company does annoy me I will admit, if fact the nastiest sharp objects in my home are not swords or military knives, but rather tools to fight my way into contemporary packaging.

What to do with plastic waste so that it doesn’t clutter land and sea? ……Burn it and scrub the stacks.

“I’ll see all of your human activity polluted sites and raise you the natural acid lakes in Indonesia and the African Rift Valley , the natural borax flats in Death Valley, the La Brea Tar Pits…oh and the Athabaska Oil Sands (the Alberta oil industry was in the process of cleaning up the biggest oil spill on the planet before Bevis and Butthead interfered)”

The problem with human pollution, of course, is that it’s not something that nature can really handle. There are bacteria that can digest crude oil, and some truly fascinating critters in those same acid lakes and hypersaline environments (seriously, extremophiles are amazing) , entire ecosystems thriving in environments that would eat the flesh off your bones.

Human chemicals, including things like microplastics that we’re becoming aware of now, are indigestible to virtually everything They do physically break down in sunlight to some extent, but the underlying polymers don’t go away, and it will take possibly millions of years for the metabolic pathways needed, to evolve.

Incidentally, those oil-eating bacteria have a lot to do with why there’s nothing but polyaromatics (bitumen) in surface-exposed petroleum deposits, including Athabasca and various tar deposits. As for “cleaning them up”, it’s much like asbestos, it’s basically inert until you disturb it, and heaven help you if you do.

Andrew, that was just East Germany. You didn’t click on the link, did you? Why do you want to believe and promulgate lies? "

I don’t want to accuse you of cherry-picking, but if you only search for pollution in former “communist” countries, that’s all you’ll find. The US really is no better, they’ve just spent billions upon billions of dollars cleaning up the worst of their own messes. A whole lot more needs to be done, especially with regards to not making new messes as fast as they clean up the old. Lake Erie may no longer be a fetid eutrophic mess (phosphorus is just plant food, after all!) but we’ve merely replaced one problem for less visible, likely more permanent ones.

Glenn, its all I had time for. This could go on for days. When I lived-in the FSU the students told us sorties. Yikes.

Al Peterson, Why pick on and single out the Soviets? The most polluted river on the planet is the Yangtse…in fact the most polluted country on the planet (and that is saying something) is the People’s Republic of China…which in spite of it’s ability to “turn it’s economy on a dime” because of it’s admirable “basic dictatorship”….shows no tendency to want to improve or change it’s ways and it’s priorities

I see your polluted creeks in East Germany and raise you one flammable river in Ohio and a couple toxic rivers in West Virginia’s coal belt.

This was one of the best interviews I have ever seen.

Romans 1:25
They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator, who is forever worthy of praise! Amen.

The funny thing is the socialist governments have always been the worst destroyers of the environment. Here is but one example:

“When the Berlin Wall came down and the Iron Curtain was finally lifted to expose the inner workings of communism to Western eyes, one of the more shocking discoveries was the nightmarish scale of environmental destruction. The statistics for East Germany alone tell a horrific tale: at the time of its reunification with West Germany an estimated 42 percent of moving water and 24 percent of still waters were so polluted that they could not be used to process drinking water, almost half of the country’s lakes were considered dead or dying and unable to sustain fish or other forms of life, and only one-third of industrial sewage along with half of domestic sewage received treatment.”

And of course, in keeping with the first tow of the Three Pillars of Leftiedom, the lefties of today have learned nothing from their mistakes, nor the mistakes of others.
