This book, and this one is also on the same subject, about a minor but very interesting episode of WWII, deconstructs the Skorzeny myth. These books persuasively argue that Skorzeny was an inept blowhard, a publicity hound who got credit for a successful raid to which he contributed little and actually almost ruined. General Student and others deserve the real credit.
Skorzeny, worshipped by some in Der Movement, is a clear example of Der Movement’s obsessions and fetishes. An Austrian Nazi – and ostensibly a politically dedicated Nazi – Skorzeny also I presume wins points because of his negative views of Italians, as chronicled in Irving’s Hitler’s War. But, alas, the Aryan Superman Skorzeny was not only an incompetent fraud, but also a traitor who worked for Jews.
I mean, too bad he’s not alive today, he’s got what it takes to be a WN 2.0 hero! Maybe Unz would give him a column at The Unz Review.

The establishment has to pretend like we don’t exist and prop up alt-lite grifters and milquetoasts. It’s called “unthinging”.
At the same time, another wing of the establishment is censoring those grifters, who are more fragile to censorship than us, because they depend on numbers rather than truth.
The beast is scratching at itself, folks. The beginnings of victory are visible.
Victory is coming! All you gotta do is send in dem dere “D’Nations!” Remember those who give live in the golden age today! This guy writes for Counter-Currents and has the nerve to talk about “grifters.” These guys got balls the size of Jupiter.
