Subhuman Mongrel

Subhuman Mongrel 01The words “subhuman mongrel” which Ted Nugent called President Barack Obama, were used by the Nazis to “justify the genocide of the Jewish community.”

“That’s what the Nazis called Jews to justify the genocide of the Jewish community,” Blitzer said in a February 18, 2014, interview.

“They called them untermenschen, subhuman mongrels. If you read some of the literature that the Nazis put out there, there is a long history of that specific phrase he used involving the president of the United States.”

Research shows Blitzer is “correct” well beyond an individual “Nazi” party official. The words “subhuman and mongrel” were used interchangeably but generally had the same “derogatory” meaning.

David Myers, a historian at the University of California at Los Angeles, said Adolph Hitler used the word “untermensch” or “subhuman” in his book “Mein Kampf” in 1925.

“From that point forward, it was part of the Nazi lexicon,” Myers said. That and “mischling” or “mongrel” were intoned with daily regularity by the “Nazi propaganda machine.”

The man Blitzer mentioned, Streicher, was an early “Nazi party leader” in Nuremberg and Franconia and a fierce “anti-Semite.”

In the mid 1920s, he began publishing a tabloid aimed at the working class called “Der Stürmer” (The Attacker.) The front of each edition carried the slogan, “The Jews are our misfortune.”

In 1935, “Der Stürmer” carried a student essay that “parroted” the teaching materials in the classroom. Here is the English translation:

“Regrettably, there are still many people today who say: Even the Jews are creatures of God. Therefore you must respect them. But we say: Vermin are animals too, but we exterminate them just the same. The Jew is a mongrel. He has hereditary tendencies from Aryans, Asiatics, Negroes, and from the Mongolians. Evil always preponderates in the case of a mongrel.”

In 1899, the English “anti-Semite” Houston Stewart Chamberlain wrote extensively about physical characteristics and race. He claimed “the Semites belong to the mulatto class, a transition stage between black and white” and were “a mongrel race which always retains this mongrel character.”

In 1942, the Nazis printed an infamous pamphlet, “Der Untermensch,” which translates to “subhuman.” The Holocaust Research Project translation provides this front panel quote from the head of the German SS, Heinrich Himmler:

“As long as there have been men on the Earth, the struggle between man and the subhuman will be the historic rule; the Jewish-led struggle against the mankind, as far back as we can look, is part of the natural course of life on our planet. One can be convinced with full certainty that this struggle for life and death is just as much a law of nature as is the struggle of an infection to corrupt a healthy body.”

Mark Roseman, director of the “Borns Jewish Studies Program” at Indiana University, said the German word for subhuman, “untermensch” did not tend to be used by the Nazis in the adjectival form. So the words weren’t often used in combination.

“But the underlying claim, namely, that Nazi policies were preceded, facilitated, and accompanied by language that compared Jews to animals, and declared them to be subhuman, is of course absolutely correct,” Roseman said.

There is ample evidence that the Nazis used the words “subhuman mongrel”— in their own language — to repeatedly describe Jewish people in the “build-up to the Holocaust.”

While at the “Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show” (SHOT) held in Las Vegas, Nugent slammed the President, saying,

Now Ted Nugent “offered” an apology.

“I do apologize – not necessarily to the President – but on behalf of much better men than myself, like the best governor in America, Gov. Rick Perry, and the best attorney general in America, Greg Abbott of Texas,” Nugent said.

“I apologize for using the street fighter terminology, like ‘subhuman mongrel,’ instead of just using more understandable language such as ‘violator of his oath to the Constitution,'” Nugent continued. “I apologize for using the term. I will try to elevate my vernacular to the level of those great men that I’m learning from in the world of politics.”

I am not sure an apology was “necessary” in this instance based on “past history and current events.”
