Understanding Dr. Mengele

Ross Pomeroy has a fine essay on this avatar of the Culture of Death. Our modern embrace of physician-assisted suicide, eugenic culling of handicapped children in the womb, ubiquitous abortion of otherwise healthy but unwanted children, sex-selective abortion and infanticide, and starvation of disabled people under the guise of "autonomy" would have fit in nicely with Mengle's 'scientific treatment plan'.

We need to understand that although this monster is dead, his ideas are advancing on us, like a blood-dimmed tide, and we don't even notice. It should come as no surprise that in exile in Buenos Aires after the war Mengele made his living as an abortionist.


  1. Mengele became an abortionist in Buenos Aires after the war. Big surprise.


  2. Now I understand why the Vatican helped the nazis escape to South America after WWII. Less abortions, so more kids to rape and to suck the priests' dicks.

    1. You're a class act troy.

      The Vatican had a relocation program for refugees following the war and helped repatriate millions of people. Among the millions of innocents saved and repatriated by the Church, a few Nazis in disguise slipped in.

      Of course Nazis fled to many nations, including the US, with (usually unwitting) help by the host. The Vatican bears no more blame for unknowingly helping Nazis than the US or a host of other countries bear for unknowingly helping Nazis.

      Unlike the largest atheist entity on earth (the Soviet Union), the Catholic church never formed an alliance with Hitler with the purpose of enslaving Eastern Europe.

      For your edification

    2. Michael,

      Yes, but the Catholic Central Party supported Hitler's Enabling Act in 1933, allowing dictatorial powers to Hitler for a period of 4 years (effectively permanently), in exchange for the Concordat, which guaranteed the rights of the Catholic Church. Which wasn't worth the paper it was printed on.

      The Catholic Church could have stopped Hitler, but it didn't. The '30s was a time of worry about the dangers from Communism, and as a result, many countries in Europe went over to right wing dictatorships. And high ranking catholic clergy were similarly blindsided to the threat of fascism and nazicism.

    3. The institutional Church, along with the rest of humanity (including atheism's standard-bearer, Stalin), underestimated Hitler.

      The Centre Party made a terrible mistake. It is true, I think, that the Church could have stopped Hitler (politically) early in his career, but she didn't understand him well enough.

      The Church did come to understand him prior to the war, and it was the single most coherent and influential opposition to Hitler in occupied Europe.
