Is this what John F. Kennedy said about Adolf Hitler?

"Hitler will emerge from the hatred that surrounds him now as one of the most significant figures who ever lived... He had a mystery about him in the way that he lived and in the manner of his death that will live and grow after him. HE HAD IN HIM THE STUFF OF WHICH LEGENDS ARE MADE." - John F. Kennedy, President of the United States

    Read the quote carefully and you'll see there is nothing in it that is meant as a compliment to him. Hitler was in fact one of the most significant figures who ever lived, unfortunately he was pure evil but there is no denying the fact that he played a huge part in history. His life and death have become legendary, to this day nobody knows exactly what was going through his mind when he committed the atrocities and nobody will ever know exactly what happened when he died.

    Th problem with talking about Hitler is that unless you insult him your seen as admiring him. I recently got into a debate when I said he was a great leader, all I meant by it was that he was able to get the country to follow him on a very destructive path but the fact that he was able to get so many to follow him shows how good he was at leading. That was taken to mean that I admired him and what he did but that's absurd, if I were to say that Hitler was the biggest moron who ever lived it would be historically inaccurate but nobody would get on my case about it. In that quote JFK never says that he was a good man or someone to be admired, don't forget Kennedy lost a brother fighting Hitler and almost lost his own life.

    Anti-semitism develop into no longer something unusual for the "top crust" of the time, and Hitler earned admiration from many for the likely incredible interest he did on restoring Germany to prosperity. lots of the admiration rapidly dwindled by employing the beginning up of the war, and a brilliant style of who had brazenly expressed approval of Hitler or the Nazis formerly the war in basic terms as brazenly voiced their determination to assist their own usa in bringing Hitler down.

    WINSTON CHURCHILL SAID THIS ON FEB 8 1920 IN NEWSPAPER IN LONDON: "In violent opposition to all this sphere of Jewish effort rise the schemes of the International Jews. Most, if not all, of them have forsaken the faith of their forefathers and divorced from their minds all spiritual hopes of the next world. This movement among the Jews is not new. From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilisation and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing…and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.

    There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews."


    “Hitler will have no war (does not want war), but we will force it on him, not this year, but soon.”- Emil Ludwig Cohn in Les Annales, June, 1934 (also quoted in his book "The New Holy Alliance").

    “We Jews are going to bring a war on Germany.” - David A. Brown, National Chairman, United Jewish Campaign, 1934

    We have exterminated the property owners in Russia.We are going to do the same thing in Europe and America. (The Jew, December 1925,Zinobit)

    The world revolution which we will experience will be exclusively our affair and will rest in our hands. This revolution will tighten the Jewish domination over all other people." - Le Peuple Juif, February 8, 1919

    "Israel won the war [WW I]; we made it; we thrived on it; we profited from it. It was our supreme revenge on Christianity." (The Jewish Ambassador from Austria to London, Count Mensdorf, 1918).

    As Napolean said of the jews "They have a creed that blesses their misdeeds and thievings"

    "The United Nations is nothing but a trap-door to the Red World's immense concentration camp. We pretty much control the U.N." Harold Wallace Rosenthal (Jew)

    “Masonry is based on Judaism. Eliminate the teachings of Judaism from the Masonic Ritual and what is left?” – “Jewish Tribune of New York”, October 28, 1927

    “Freemasonry is a Jewish establishment, whose history; grades; official appointments; passwords; and explanations, are Jewish from beginning to end.” – Rabbi Isaac Wise – 1927

    “The Jewish people as a whole will be its own messiah. It will attain world dominion by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers, the annihilation of monarchy, and by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship. In this “New World Order,” the children of Israel will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition. The Governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property, and everywhere to make use of the resources of the state. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in which is said that when the Messianic time is come, the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands.” – Baruch Levy, in a letter to Karl Marx, published in “La Revue de Paris,” pg. 572 – June 1, 1928

    Hitler was NOT the evil and frightening monster we have been conditioned to believe. There were NO gas chambers and he had NO desire and or process to kill millions of Jewish people or otherwise. Our Government, Hollywood, the mainstream media, our educational institutions have conditioned us to believe facts that are no more than fiction. In Eisenhower s, Churchill s and De Gaulle s extensive books on WWII not ONE WORD of Hitler systematically killing any group of people is mentioned, nor are gas chambers mentioned ONE TIME! Why would that be? Because there WEREN"T any! Elie Wiesel s book, "Night," in its First Edition, does not mention gas chambers, either! They only magically appeared in his Second Printing! Why? Because he was paid millions of dollars to fabricate truth and history. The Holocaust is nothing more than a "CASH COW" for many museums that combined make billions, along with individual s who receive reparations for these alleged crimes by Hitler. All LIES! Also, there was No human soap, NO lamp shades made out of human skin, NO shrunken heads and NO barbaric medical experiments conducted by Joseph Mengele and company. Once again, ALL LIES! Also, why do seventeen countries have laws where one cannot question/debate any aspect of it? Thousands of people, many of whom are Historians, scientists, engineers, teachers/professors, priests, etc. have been imprisoned and/or fined for merely questioning the outlandish lie of six million Jewish people perishing due to Hitler. The "Final Solution" was actually the "Transfer Agreement," where thousands of Jewish citizens were transported with all their belongings to former Palestine between 1933 and 1941. Watch this documentary and learn the truth. Think for yourselves and DON T rely on other sources, including mine. Get off your butts and do your civic duty and educate yourselves! Everything we have been taught/told is either a manipulation or a flat out LIE!

    Yes and Henry Ford too. The fact is that in 1930 87% of Americans said that jews are inferior and 52% said that jews should be deported!

    I'm not sure if JFK said that or not, but I know that his father was REMOVED from ambassadorship of G.B. by Roosevelt at the unofficial request of Churchill himself for saying that England was finished and the United States would soon follow because Hitler is the future. That family was very pro Nazi and only sent their children to the military to give them political grounding for the future.

    A lot of people admired Hitler - Gandhi in 1940 admired Hitler and declared him to be one of the outstanding figures of his century. The modern indian BJP party consider him to be a rolemodel - I have read approving quotes from US black power leader " that hitler was bad news for jews very good news for the german people" -he is not demonised in the third world.

    When did he write that, when he was 12? Jack and his whole family lived in London when his dad was ambassador to Great Britain and the UK in the 30s. Jack and Joe, Jr traveled all around Europe and were famous for being outspoken, ignorant, American children.
