Nazi Organ Marks Selection of Notorious Anti-semite to Reichstag Presidency by New Pogrom Incitement

The “National Post” which replaced the suspended Nazi organ “Der Angriff” today celebrates yesterday’s election of the Nazi leader and notorious anti-Semite, Captain Herman Goering, to the presidency of the Reichstag, by issuing a new appeal to the Nazis to make a quick end of the Jews.

“Der Angriff” was suspended last week because of its attack on Chancellor Franz von Papen. The fact that the same issue carried a call to Nazis to conduct a pogrom against the Jews was ignored in the suspension order.

The “National Post” today alleges that a Jewish Communist, Siegbert Caro, participated in the events leading to the death of a Nazi, Schroeder, and that he instigated attacks opon other Hitler Storm Troopers. This, the paper charges, “demonstrates the brutality of the Jewish race and the righteousness of our fight against these alien scamps whose hours, we hope, are numbered.”

Contributors to the “Berliner Tageblatt” and the “Vossische Zeitung”, as well as to the Jewish press are characterized as swine who concoct lies in their synagogues.

A Jewish writer, Alexander Gergely, who took his own life, because he was starving, committed suicide, according to the Nazi organ, because he was disgusted with his own swinishness, and offers a good example to the remainder of the Jews.

Jewish leaders are indignant that the police department is permitting the “National Post” to continue the pogrom incitement inaugurated by the “Angriff”.

They declare that the “National Post” has adopted its present attitude because “Der Angriff” suspension order related not to its pogrom agitation but only to the insults heaped upon the German Chancellor.

Jewish leaders deplore the timidity of the von Papen government and believe that it is hesitant about adopting a more militant attitude lest it be accused by the Nazis of protecting the Jews.
