BARILOCHE, Ar. – A former Nazi attache living in Argentina under an assumed name says American white supremacists are “not exactly” what Adolf Hitler had in mind when he imagined a master race.
“This concept – this ideology – was about purity and superiority,” Dr. Heinrich Sanchez, who served as an attache to the German dictator from 1939 until 1945, told the Buenos Aires Herald. “There are certain characteristics and attributes that were taken into account when the concept of a master race was conceived. When you stop and consider the American white nationalist – it is an abhorrent contradiction and, frankly, an insult to [Hitler’s] legacy.”
Dr. Sanchez, who fled Germany in the spring of 1945 before going on to establish one of Argentina’s most prominent dental practices, told the Herald that he, like countless others, has followed the rise of white nationalism in the United States with morbid curiosity. “I’m overcome with revulsion when I watch television footage of those citizens embracing the Nazi ideology. I see dull, droopy eyes; disgusting brown hair without a hint of blonde; Neanderthal-like features; pockmarked skin; crooked teeth. It’s repulsive. It makes me want to vomit.”
The irony of it all isn’t lost on Dr. Sanchez. “If this was 1943, most of them would be among the first to – well, you know…” While Sanchez stopped short of finishing his thought, the ninety-six year-old former Nazi later said he believes “der Führer” is rolling in his grave. “Quite literally, this is the polar opposite of what we strived to achieve through eugenics,” Sanchez said of the American Nazi movement.
Reading from a Teleprompter on Monday, President Donald J. Trump – who sources say succumbed to pressure on “many sides” – reluctantly denounced a large portion of his base, calling neo-Nazis and white supremacists “repugnant to everything that we hold dear as Americans.” His remarks came more than forty-eight hours after a twenty year-old white supremacist rammed his car into a crowd of protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing one and severely injuring nineteen others.
