George Smith Patton, Jr.
(November 11, 1885 – December 21, 1945) was a United States Army general, best known for his flamboyant character and his command of the Seventh United States Army, and later the Third United States Army, in WWII. Patton’s phenomenal European ancestry has been traced back to sixteen of the Barons who signed the Magna Carta. Furthermore, he was descended from George Washington’s great grandfather and from Edward I of England through Edward’s son Edmund of Woodstock, 1st Earl of Kent. Having an illustrious military family Patton never seriously considered a career other than the military yet even with his eminent career Patton was going to resign from the Military during WWII. Patton’s 3rd Army had been ordered to a halt as it reached the German border to appease the Bolsheviks
and was prevented from seizing either Berlin or Prague, moves that could have prevented Communist
domination of Eastern Europe after the war. Patton did not trust the Bolsheviks
and wanted to go to war with them against the administration and reportedly kept some German units ready to move against the Red Army
. Furthermore, according to military historian Robert Wilcox Patton was privy to secrets from WWII that would have ruined careers, indicating that Dwight Eisenhower
would never have been elected president if Patton had lived to say the things he wanted to say. Dr J. Wickstrom stated that Patton’s “Intelligence Corp had broken Eisenhower’s military communication code… and thus, General Patton was fully aware of the conspiracy and plans by Washington, D.C. and Moscow (Potsdam and Yalta Meetings) of slaughtering the German men, women, and children after the war.” His Third Army was the only command of the Allied troops to release significant numbers of Germans. As soon as the war was over, General George Patton simply turned his prisoners loose to find their way home as best they could. Eisenhower was furious, and issued a specific order to Patton, to turn these men over to the Disarmed Enemy Forces (DEF) or Eisenhower’s death camps.
Patton completely ignored his orders in order to save Germans. Patton wrote in his diary: “If they [the Jewish DPs] were not kept under guard they would not stay in the camps, would spread over the country like locusts, and would eventually have to be rounded up after…quite a few Germans [had been] murdered and pillaged.”
At least twice in his diary, Patton referred to the Jewish DPs as “animals
.” Even accusations of ‘war crimes’ offended Patton: “It is not cricket and is Semitic.”
– Patton wrote to his wife on July 21st 1945 following a visit to the ruined Berlin- “Berlin gave me the blues. We have destroyed a good race
, and we are about to replace them with Mongolian savages. And all Europe will be Communist
…for the first week after
they took it (Berlin), all women who ran were shot and those who did not were raped. I could have taken it
(instead of the Jewish Bolsheviks
) had I been allowed.” Prior to General Patton’s Death on December 21, 1945, there were several assassination attempts on him. In his diary Patton had noted that on one occasion an RAF Spitfire attacked his private plane in an attempt to shoot it down but fortunately crashed after missing. General Patton died on December 21, 1945. After a decade-long investigation, military historian Robert Wilcox asserts that OSS head General “Wild Bill” Donovan ordered a highly decorated marksman called Douglas Bazata to silence Patton, who gloried in the nickname “Old Blood and Guts”.
“Let’s keep our boots polished, bayonets sharpened, and present a picture of force and strength to the Red Army. This is the only language they understand and respect.” – George S Patton May 7, 1945
“If we have to fight them (The Soviet Bolsheviks), now is the time. From now on we will get weaker and they stronger.” – George S Patton a letter to his wife May 20, 1945
“these people (The Jews) do not understand toilets and refuse to use them except as repositories for tin cans, garbage, and refuse . . . They decline, where practicable, to use latrines, preferring to relieve themselves on the floor.”– George S Patton 1945
“where, although room existed, the Jews were crowded together to an appalling extent, and in practically every room there was a pile of garbage in one corner which was also used as a latrine. The Jews were only forced to desist from their nastiness and clean up the mess by the threat of the butt ends of rifles. Of course, I know the expression ‘lost tribes of Israel’ applied to the tribes which disappeared — not to the tribe of Judah from which the current sons of bitches are descended. However, it is my personal opinion that this too is a lost tribe — lost to all decency.” – George S Patton 1945
“This happened to be the feast of Yom Kippur, so they were all collected in a large, wooden building, which they called a synagogue. It behooved General Eisenhower to make a speech to them. We entered the synagogue, which was packed with the greatest stinking bunch of humanity I have ever seen. When we got about halfway up, the head rabbi, who was dressed in a fur hat similar to that worn by Henry VIII of England and in a surplice heavily embroidered and very filthy, came down and met the General . . . The smell was so terrible that I almost fainted and actually about three hours later lost my lunch as the result of remembering it.” – George S Patton diary entry for September 17, 1945
“Evidently the virus started by Morgenthau and Baruch of a Semitic revenge against all Germans is still working. Harrison (a U.S. State Department official) and his associates indicate that they feel German civilians should be removed from houses for the purpose of housing Displaced Persons. There are two errors in this assumption. First, when we remove an individual German we punish an individual German, while the punishment is — not intended for the individual but for the race.
Furthermore, it is against my Anglo-Saxon conscience to remove a person from a house, which is a punishment, without due process of law. In the second place, Harrison and his ilk believe that the Displaced Person is a human being, which he is not, and this applies particularly to the Jews, who are lower than animals.” – George S Patton September diary entry 1945
“I am frankly opposed to this war criminal stuff. It is not cricket and is Semitic. I am also opposed to sending POW’s to work as slaves in foreign lands (i.e., the Soviet Union’s Gulags), where many will be starved to death.” – George S Patton a letter to his wife September 14, 1945
“I have been at Frankfurt for a civil government conference. If what we are doing (to the Germans) is ‘Liberty, then give me death.’ I can’t see how Americans can sink so low. It is Semitic, and I am sure of it.” – George S Patton a letter to his wife 1945
“Today we received orders . . . in which we were told to give the Jews special accommodations. If for Jews, why not Catholics, Mormons, etc? . . . We are also turning over to the French several hundred thousand prisoners of war to be used as slave labor in France. It is amusing to recall that we fought the Revolution in defense of the rights of man and the Civil War to abolish slavery and have now gone back on both principles.” – George S Patton diary entry 1945
“Berlin gave me the blues. We have destroyed what could have been a good race, and we are about to replace them with Mongolian savages. And all Europe will be communist. It’s said that for the first week after they took it (Berlin), all women who ran were shot and those who did not were raped. I could have taken it (instead of the Bolsheviks) had I been allowed.” – George S Patton letter to his wife July 21, 1945
“There is a very apparent Semitic influence in the press. They are trying to do two things: first, implement communism, and second, see that all businessmen of German ancestry and non-Jewish antecedents are thrown out of their jobs. They have utterly lost the Anglo-Saxon conception of justice and feel that a man can be kicked out because somebody else says he is a Nazi. They were evidently quite shocked when I told them I would kick nobody out without the successful proof of guilt before a court of law . . .
“Another point which the press harped on was the fact that we were doing too much for the Germans to the detriment of the DP’s, most of whom are Jews. I could not give the answer to that one, because the answer is that, in my opinion and that of most nonpolitical officers, it is vitally necessary for us to build Germany up now as a buffer state against Russia. In fact, I am afraid we have waited too long.” – George S Patton diary entry September 22, 1945
“I will probably be in the headlines before you get this, as the press is trying to quote me as being more interested in restoring order in Germany than in catching Nazis. I can’t tell them the truth that unless we restore Germany we will insure that communism takes America.” – George S Patton letter to his wife September 22, 1945
“I have been just as furious as you at the compilation of lies which the communist and Semitic elements of our government have leveled against me and practically every other commander. In my opinion it is a deliberate attempt to alienate the soldier vote from the commanders, because the communists know that soldiers are not communistic, and they fear what eleven million votes (of veterans) would do.” – George S Patton letter to Maj. Gen. James G. Harbord October 22, 1945
