Jesse Owens

AZL flag holder TransparentJames Cleveland “Jesse” Owens (September 12th, 1913 – March 31st, 1980) was a Black track and field athlete and four-time gold medallist for the American team in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. The youngest of ten children, three girls and seven boys, born to Henry Cleveland Owens and Mary Emma Fitzgerald in Oakville, Alabama, the individual achievement of this athlete is not disputed. However, not only is Owens’ personal achievement in the 1936 Berlin Olympics used by the Jewish media as propaganda to overshadow the accomplishment of the whole German Nation but a manifest lie is concocted to smear the German leader. The 1936 Olympics had been awarded to Germany prior to Hitler’s Chancellorship in 1933. Consequently despite the protests and boycotts organized by international Jewish groups, it was too late to take the games away from Germany. The games provided an ideal opportunity to showcase the new Germany and visitors were naturally impressed at the spirit, positive outlook and accomplishment of the German people under this new leader in less than 3 years. Indeed that Germany won more medals than any other nation clearly validates Adolf Hitler’s leadership thus he had nothing to prove. Nevertheless, the Jewish press instantly concoct a story that the German leader had ‘snubbed’ the black athlete Owens by refusing to shake his hand. Apparently the accomplishment of one black athlete wipes out the achievement of a whole white nation making it necessary for Hitler to give Owens the cold shoulder or so the Jewish media would have the public believe. Owens himself confirmed that the “snub” story was a hoax, stating in 1936: “When I passed the Chancellor, he arose, waved his hand at me, and I waved back. I think the writers showed bad taste in criticizing the man of the hour in Germany [Hitler].” Years later, in his autobiography, Owens again clarified “Hitler didn’t snub me -it was FDR who snubbed me. The president didn’t even send me a telegram.” Finally, in 2009, well known German sportswriter Siegfried Mischner described an encounter he had with Jesse Owens in 1960’s. Mischner, now 83, claims that Owens carried around a photograph in his wallet of Hitler shaking Owen’s hand. He claimed Owens showed him the photograph and told him: ‘That was one of my most beautiful moments.’ Mischner said: ‘It was taken behind the honour stand and so not captured by the world’s press. Owens felt the newspapers of the day reported ‘unfairly’ on Hitler’s attitude towards him and tried to get Mischner and his journalist colleagues to change the accepted version of history. To Owens disappointment the existence of the photo was never reported at the time. Mischner stated later that “the press then was very obedient…” proving they were under a Jewish Zionist yolk.
