Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, July 02, 2014

When Hessy Taft was six months old, she was a poster child for the Nazis. Her photograph was chosen as the image of the ideal Aryan baby and distributed in party propaganda. But what the Nazis didn't know was that their perfect baby was really Jewish. "I can laugh about it now," the 80-year-old Professor Taft told Germany's Bild. "But if the Nazis had known who I really was, I wouldn't be alive."

The photographer who took Taft's baby photo, Hans Ballin, told her mother he knew the child was Jewish and submitted it to the contest for Aryan babies on purpose. "I wanted to make the Nazis ridiculous," he explained. Her photo is believed to have been chosen personally by Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels.

I recall there was a case of a male model in Germany allowing himself to be photographed as a representation of a pure Aryan.

Not long after he took a plane to America and published an open letter declaring he was Jewish.

What an awesome middle-finger to the NAZI propagandists and quite ironic that the ultra-orthodox Israeli of today are just as fanatical about Jewish "racial purity".

This kind of story warms my cockles considerably.

there are plenty of examples today to show that the nazis didn't have a monopoly on ridiculously obvious dishonest propaganda for the masses.

...check out the true meaning of → "Aryan" the word originally described
the Indian "upper crust".......(Indians from INDIA)
.intellectuals, and had NOTHING to do with blond
hair and blue eyes.....Hitler and his ilk were wrong then, and the people
that are using Aryan now are wrong........Aryan.....is sometimes referred
to "iranian" .........

...also what do you mean when you say that someone looks "Jewish"????
Remember. Sammy Davis was "Jewish"......
also don't forget all them black jews that were flown to Israel from Africa.
...can someone also look "Catholic," or "Baptist"?????

DUDE, this article is quite interesting - mainly for the exposure of genetic misnomer by the former uber-overlorders corners toothily torn by their own information porn.

Just read it.

Kudzoo, pretend nothing. Attacking Nazism, still prevalent in today's society, is an on going battle that requires the participation from all sane individuals regardless of party affiliation or personal views on the current Israeli administration. Well done Mrs Taft.

Still 'prevalent' in today's society? What society?

I could find Nazis on the internt but if I had to physically locate one I'd have no idea where to start looking....

Sully, I've seen plenty Neo-Nazi scum in Europe, none in the US except in the movies. Then again they don't exactly have swastikas tattooed on their face so they may not be that easy to locate. Your best bet to draw them out is to go to your nearest gun range and put on a yarmulke.

where does "race" exist in the Linnean Classification System? Hmmm...kingdom, phylum, class, order,family, genera, species...there is no "race". "Race" is an outmoded idea living on only in the fantasy of an ever dwindling number of minds.

They're mostly in Ohio. I don't know what actually draws them there, but that's where they end up.

A big difference between a Nazi and a Jew are the supposed victims, be they Jews or Zionists or Aryans. The Aryan Baby was a false claim that turned Aryans and Jews into racists.

.... "Hitler's 'Perfect Aryan' Baby was Jewish"

**** One very TELLING thing this article Doesn't Mention is that you CAN'T be Aryan and "Semetic" at the same time!!!
