ROOSEVELT THE " CAPTIVE OF SIX BOLSHEVIST JEWS " But Victory Makes Him Almost a Hero
From Our German Correspondent President Roosevelt's victory came as a great surprise to the Third Reich, where it was hoped that Landon would win: Herr Hitler's own paper, the Vtilkischer Beahachter, prophesied some time ago a Landon victory. Immediately before the election this paper declared both candidates
had equal chances. It revealed that Mr. Landon comes from a German family and that he would be sure to win, " if the Jews were not so active behind the scene to beat him and to get their man, Mr, Roosevelt, in again.
"Directed by the Soviet"
Everybody remembers the protest which Herr Hitler sent to Paris, when in Strasburg the French Communist leader Thorez made some rather unfriendly remarks about him. The German press alleged then that Nazis had never insulted the heads of other States. Perhaps it is not an insult for a German newspaper to write that Roosevelt is the " captive of Bolshevist Jews " and that his government is " a revolutionary oriental foreign rule under the sign of the Soviet star."
The article is based on a leaflet issued by a certain Mr. Robert Edward Edmonson, said to be the leader of an obscure antiSemitic group. The Volkischer Beobachter says that that leaflet, which is described as something very important, proves " how far Bolshevism has succeeded to insinuate itself into the immediate sphere of President Roosevelt and " to seize upon the whole control of legislature, administration of law, civil administration, financial and economic policy."
We learn in Germany that Bolshevism occupies "a great portion of leading positions in the U.S.A. Govertunent." The New Deal is run by a Jewish-Bolshevist Council of Six whose captive Roosevelt is.
The Volkischer Beobachter does not forget to add a few sentences in praise of the Hearst Press, and it finishes with the following words:
" From State Capitalism, as represented by the New Deal, to Communism is but one step, particularly in a country the destiny of which is directed by messengers of the Communist world revolution. But in spite of all this America's past history is neither dead nor forgotten. Its spirit' is alive in millions of American citizerik, even in the feverishness of the present day. Also in the United States the fronts are becoming clearer. The last decision will be whether America is to belong to the Americans or whether
God's own country ' is to fall as a victim of the Bolshevist world revolution."
Ideals Coincide With Hitler's After Mr. Roosevelt's re-election the sound of the clock is of course different. Der. Angriff, Herr Goebbels's paper, finds that Mr. Roosevelt is a very sympathetic personality.
A Hamburg paper discovers that in his electoral speeches there are' some points which resemble Herr Hitler's ideas.
The Berliner Tirgeblatt states' that the Roosevelt victory is so extraordinary in its measure that it can hardly be described as
democratic. it is a victory of authoritarian principles over the American democracy. The U.S.A. is moving. towards the one-party system, as it exists in Germany, says theBerlin paper. The German wireleas compared Roosevelt with Wilson and found that Roosevelt, although he made sometimes a few unfriendly allusions to Hitlerism, is regarded in Germany much more favourably than Wilson.
