This word, crucifixion, I don't think it means what you think it means...

"The Passion narrative is a coded description of the attempted rape of Jesus by pygmies." -- David S. Katz in his book The Occult Tradition, discussing the, uh, theozoological work of völkisch "philosopher" Jörg Lanz von Liebenfels (1874-1954). Oh, he also has Firepower 4+ (pdf).

You know who else read the Theozoology? That's right.

Lanz could not only claim to be one of the "grandfathers of Fascism and National Socialism,"50 he is also a legitimate ancestor of modern SF. As he himself stated in 1930, "a whole new generation of authors is already living off their exploitation of `Ostara'-ideas.

You know who else reads science fiction? That's right.

Don't know much theozoology
Don't know much pseudobiology
Don't know much about the dark people and the blondes
Or the sodomite apelings and the divine electron

But I do know that one Aryan-Christian masterhuman plus one dark-skinned beastman is two
And I know that if you loved me too
What a wonderful world this would be.

An old German would have us believe
in Pygmy Adam and Aryan Eve
And miscegenation
between their station
Ruined man's joie de vivre.

I just finished reading Goodrick-Clarke's "The Occult Roots of Nazism", and the batshit insanity of Lanz von Liebenfels stuck with me.

However, the whole Hitler connection is very doubtful, according to that book. The dates claimed don't match up, etc. And Hitler seems to have been almost completely uninterested in philosophy, religion, and occultism.
