Hello,


I was wondering what Freemasons thought about the political climate and reason that lead to the death of 200,000 (I have heard this figure although I maybe wrong) Freemasons by the Nazi party during WW2.


I have heard that there was a wave of antisemitism linked with ‘banking conspiracy’ claims and a linking of Freemasons to the Zionist movement that was occurring at the time.


Looking at the current situation that is occurring today, do you feel alarmed at what is happening in the world today, especially considering the way a large amount of people believe in a ‘Zionist-Freemason’ conspiracy to take over the world?


Thanks.

It’s true that the Nazis killed many Freemasons. They killed anyone they feared including gays, political activists, the handicapped, and of course Jews. The reasoning for these murders is not something a rational person could understand and certainly not what the public was told. Even today, Islamic extremists teach that the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” is true and Masons conspire with Jews to take over when that document has been proven to be completely fabricated over and over. These leaders know it is a fabrication but use it to implement their goal of eliminating any free thought. It is a lie but their followers believe it because the people they admire and trust told them it was true. After hearing from their leader that I am an evil man in league with their enemy, what chance do I have of convincing them otherwise?

Today’s political climate is completely different from Nazi Germany in the 30s and 40s. Yes, some have compared Mr. Trump to Hitler. During the campaign, he was telling his supporters exactly what they wanted to hear. Now that he won, there is no more talk of arresting Mrs. Clinton. The wall turned into maybe a fence and the Mexican president couldn’t have put his sentiments about paying for it any clearer. I will always respect the office of the President and continue to salute the flag of my country with respect. Mr. Trump won fair and square. Let’s see what actually happens and judge his term in the Office on his actions, not the campaign. I believe the Founding Fathers crafted our political system of checks and balances so that no one man could impose his will on the people. No, I have no fear of persecution because I am a Mason and have no plans to remove my ring.

Thank you for your answer.

I do not believe in the Zionist-Freemason conspiracy theory, but I do understand that it has been used in the past to fulfill a political agenda.

What I have noticed is that more and more people are listening to conspiracy sites or alternative news media as they do not trust the mainstream media for various reasons.

One of the main reasons that Donald Trump was able to win was due to the American public’s deep distrust in the mainstream media.

Another thing that I have noticed is that 80-90% of the conspiracy sites blame the problems on the Zionist-Freemason connection.

Unfortunately, history has a habit of repeating itself, and it seems the Jewish community is sensing a large antisemitic feeling coming from the world.

I can see that there is a lot of mistrust and hatred directed towards Freemasons in recent years, and have seen that level of feeling increase steadily in comment sections and videos.

I was just wondering if Freemasons were noticing these things too.

My comments were not meant to accuse nor were they meant to threaten anyone to give up Freemasonry.

Thanks

Have a read of this paper you will find that it wasn’t just the Nazis and also direct quotes that I transcribed from Mein Kampf that will help you understand what Hitler believed us to be: http://forum.thefreemason.com/Topic35640.aspx

Thank you for your reply,I found it to be very helpful.

Essentially, I am seeing the same sort of patterns emerging again on the web, it is a world wide phenomena and it has got me very worried.

I do not want to see good men framed and put to death.

Great article!!!!

Thank you very much.

However, to be honest I still haven’t finished it! I always intended to complete it with the details of why the over-private behaviour carried on after the War with the rise of the USSR and the Communist suppression of Freemasonry in Eastern Europe. As everyone knows this only ended with the fall of the Berlin Wall (1989) and the final collapse of the USSR in 1991 which was when Freemasonry started to return to the Baltic States and indeed Russia herself.

The Jews don’t need any more oppression then what they’ve already been through. The Spanish Inquisition, Holocaust, Exodus.

People need to stop.
