>>4453>This shit again
National Socialism was never a Christian movement and it is fundamentally impossible for it to be so. Hitler and some others made noise about being Christian in the earlier days (so many NSDAP members, especially members of the SS, left the churches starting in the mid-30s that a word was coined to describe it: gottgläubig
) and was willing to play ball as long as the churches were but they refused to knuckle under and they were smashed just like any other obstacle. Hitler may well have considered himself a Christian, I don't know - he said as much several times but he also said the opposite and he mocked the professed religious beliefs of people like Himmler, Rosenberg, etc. and rightfully slammed what you would probably call "LARPagans" as dilettante cowards playing dress up. I personally believe that Hitler (like many people) had so much Christian baggage that he kept the trappings and awareness of the divine while effectively throwing out virtually everything that would be recognizable as "Christian" by a third party. Hitler was also neither infallible nor always correct and to blindly take his word as gospel on every issue means that you are a Hitler cultist, not a National Socialist
Whatever the rhetoric is you must set it aside and look at the actions
of the NSDAP and the reactions to those actions both from within and without. Kirchenkampf, Positive Christianity, the occultism of the SS, active de-Christianization, Mit Brennder Sorge, etc. all testify to the un-Christian nature of National Socialism. Hitler himself took a realpolitik and utilitarian attitude towards religion and removed or subverted the churches because they would not conform but past that he really didn't care what people believed - including atheism - so long as they believed in National Socialism first because National Socialism is the belief system that matters
. Individuals like Himmler went a step farther and attempted to construct a synthetic folk religion that drew from Germanic myth and pre-Christian beliefs and from what we know Hitler either didn't care or rolled his eyes at the pageantry. Regardless of the spectrum of religion in the Reich, the fact remains that Christianity and National Socialism are mutually exclusive because both are playing for the brass ring and nothing is capable of changing that. People have tried, of course, and that's how you end up with pathetic clusterfucks like Christian "ACHKSHUALLY white people are the real
Jews" Identity. There is no unilateral National Socialist outlook on the divine. An atheist can be a National Socialist, a heathen (in most cases, though certainly not all) can be a National Socialist, and even an animist or a pantheist or an agnostic or what have you can be a National Socialist but someone who claims to be an Abrahamist and a National Socialist is lying about one or the other and as such is either ill-informed, stupid or malicious.
In closing, I will leave this fascinating tidbit collected from one of the all-time great threads on 8/pol/. Have a pleasant day.
