King loved Hitler’s
hate speech
(Feb. 20, 1938) against “Jewish international Bolshevism”

By Richard

Hitler giving his much-heralded speech against “Jewish international Bolshevism” at the Reichstag, on Feb. 20, 1938.

Hitler was a confidence man who gained the trust of millions. Many Western elites had faith that he could fulfil the Nazi’s promise to destroy their shared JudeoBolshevik enemy, based in the Kremlin.

Prime Minister King’s diary reveals his great anticipation for Hitler’s key speech to the Reichstag on February 20, 1938. After hearing the radio broadcast, and the translation of Hitler’s diatribe, King recorded his admiration for the Führer as "the leader of Europe."  Why?

In this bellicose tirade, Hitler vowed to unite the world’s fascist forces to fight the demon which he labeled "Jewish international Bolshevism." Declaring "Soviet Russia" the threat to peace, Hitler assured the world that Germany, Italy and Japan would defend civilisation from Kremlin-based communism:

       • Nazi Germany
       • Yaroslav Stetsko

"With one country alone have we scorned to enter into relations.... Soviet Russia. We see in Bolshevism more now than before the incarnation of human destructive forces.... We know it is a small Jewish intellectual group which led a great nation into this position of madness. If this doctrine would confine itself territorially to Russia maybe one could put up with it. Alas, Jewish intemational Bolshevism attempts to hollow out the nations of the world from its Soviet center. ...

"Above all is ... our cooperation with those two great powers which, like Germany, have recognized Bolshevism as a world danger .... Italy and Japan."1

In response, King divulged in his diary that he "was most favourably impressed" with the Hitler’s "tone and the note of right and justice" in this speech. He then saluted Hitler for leading the way for all of Europe toward "order," "liberty" and "disarmament," saying:

Hitler ... stood out as the leader of Europe—a voice stronger than any other for order. That secure, then may come liberty,—the light on the horizon has begun to dawn—we shall see gradual disarmament & more effective & collective co-operation.2 (Emphasis in original.)

To sum up the Führer’s great promise to lead the "liberty" of all Europe, Canada’s long-standing Liberal Prime Minister revealed his naive confidence that under Hitler’s guidance, Germany would be ready to protect peace by fighting their common enemy. "If other countries (Russia!) upset peace of Europe," wrote King, "Germany will be prepared."3
