I grew up in the UK, in many respects a truly great country to grow up in which you might appreciate, unless you actually happen to live in the country.
There are various levels of programming which goes on consciously and subconsciously to finally make you British, when you first arrive in the country. Such programmings are either government sanctioned to allow immigrants to "fit in", or happen due to natural laws of living within a host community with specific cultural "British" values.
This process affects different people in a variety of ways depending on the psychology of the individual and their situation, both economic and social. Those who lived in the "ghettos" of the large cities might not lose their original identity so quickly, and indeed in some cases it might be inverted the other way.
However among middle class families such as myself, not identifying with the ghetto the pressure to assimilate becomes far greater. You are successful, career wise all is well and the urge to be British is enormous related to selfish needs and psychological requirements to cut ties with the old country.
I came across countless number of young mainly middle class Asians who took it one step further..........they actually displayed a loathing for all things South Asian, and naturally felt fully British. They would cringe with embarrassment and shame if I flicked the TV channel onto a very rare Asian program in their presence during my student years. They had been well conditioned.
I too went through such moments especially during my immature teenage years, but never to such levels. I never loathed or hated South Asia for being poor, dirty or backward. Yes like all teenagers I was looking for acceptance into British society, which ran into the year 2002 aged 36 as a wannabe Barrister, but the acceptance was not at the PRICE of hating fellow South Asians.
But such experience is not unique to South Asians in the UK. That process also went on in Germany, both in its imperial form and in the Weimar Republic, amongst the sections of the Jewish community in that country. In the last few posts one notes the number of alleged Jews within the Nazi Party higher echelon........self hating Jews taken to an extreme form.
BUT the coincidence of large number of self hating Jews in senior positions of the German Nazi Party cannot itself be put down to sheer chance. As has been argued by many, in the West ultimately it was the Jewish bankers based in NY and London which funded and guided the rise of the German Nazi Party into power within the space of 10 years.
Not of course for altruistic reasons. Nazi Germany's actions led to 10 million dead Germans and 60 million overall. In seeking such awkward answers we come closer to finding the real truth so well hidden and disguised cunningly. Finally by such things we can detect and prevent such games reoccurring.
Die verschwörend Juden Du arschgefickter Hurensohn!
Heydrich was the Nazi spymaster who set up the Berlin brothel called Salon Kitty. This was used to spy on foreign diplomats and other important people.
Heydrich used a fake sex scandal to destroy the non-Nazi army chiefs.
Heydrich started World War II with his staged raid on a border radio station in which murdered concentration camp victims were dressed in Polish uniforms.
Heydrich convened and chaired the Wannsee Conference; he was the mastermind of the Holocaust.
Bryan Mark Rigg is the author of Hitler's Jewish Soldiers: The Untold Story of Nazi Racial Laws and Men of Jewish Descent in the German Military (University Press of Kansas, 2002). Rigg wrote:
When Heydrich was a child in Halle, neighborhood children made fun of him, calling him "Isi" (Izzy), short for Isidor, a name with a Jewish connotation. This nickname upset Heydrich. When he served in the navy, many of his comrades believed he was Jewish. Some called him the "blond Moses." Others who lived in Halle have claimed that everybody believed that his father, the musician Bruno Heydrich, was a Jew. Half-Jew Alice Schaper nee Rohr, who took piano lessons from Bruno, claimed, "We all knew he was Jewish. ...He looked just like a typical Jew." In town, Bruno was called Isidor Suess behind his back. With such rumors going around, it was not surprising that Heydrich felt continually burdened by these allegations, especially when he served as an SS general.
One will never know whether Heydrich was truly of Jewish descent unless more documents are found, but it is possible that Himmler and Hitler may have believed he was. In the early 1930s, according to Himmler's masseur Felix Kersten (if he can be believed), Hitler had told Himmler, "Heydrich was a highly gifted but also dangerous man, whose gifts the movement had to retain. Such people could still be used so long as they were kept well in hand and for that purpose his non-Aryan origins were extremely useful; for he would be eternally grateful to us that we had kept him and not expelled him and would obey blindly."
According to Speer, Hitler often used flaws of men in positions of authority to control them. In this case, Heydrich's possible flaw was "Jewish ancestors." Heydrich often took those who claimed he was Jewish to court for slander. He did so as late as 1940 and sent another man to a concentration camp. Admiral Canaris, head of the Abwehr, presumably had a large dossier on Heydrich's Jewish past and threatened to reveal what he had if the SS tried to infringe on Abwehr activities. Heydrich was definitely haunted by stories of his Jewish past.
