The Fuehrer Speaks
The fiery little Austrian Chancellor of Germany joined the clamors of discontent that recently echoed round the world but his defiant utterings sounded a different note from those of the Reds he hates so vehemently. While millions of his countrymen listened to his fervent denunciation of the discrimination against Germany by the former allied powers, the Nazi leader declared that the day of "spineless submission" was at an end.
Too long has Germany been victimized. Twenty years have brought to light many factors not universally known at the time the great configuration started. No longer can the Teutonic nation be shouldered with full and sole responsibility for the war that tore Europe asunder. The time has come for sensible treatment of a situation that has caused as much unrest and anxiety as the war itself. Germany must be given an opportunity to regain her self-respect and full nationhood. If another world catastrophe is to be avoided, she must be accepted among her fellow states as an equal. Proud and idealistic the Teuton race will not suffer much longer the injustice that has been inflicted upon it by arrogant nations. Everywhere they clamor for peace but nowhere are any adequate steps taken to assure that war will not be waged.
The responsibility for the next war if it comes will rest definitely upon the former allied powers. Not unlike Germany they too would he willing to fight for their self-respect and independence from foreign tutelage had the outcome been reversed. Peace can be assured by giving Germany a chance to handle her domestic and foreign policies as she sees fit. MENTOR.
