very first political statement, his letter to Adolf Gemlich on 16
September 1919, already includes a clear declaration of his anti-Semitic
position: "Rational anti-Semitism on the other hand, must lead to a
systematic legal opposition and elimination of the special privileges
that Jews hold, in contrast to the other aliens living among us (alien's
legislation). Its final objective must unswervingly be the removal of
the Jews altogether."
In those early days he often spoke of how he would deal with the Jews.
His favourite words were Ausrottung (extirpation), Vernichtung
(annihilation), Entfernung (removal), Aufräumung (cleaning
up). Thus according to a police report of a NSDAP meeting on 6 April
1920 he declared:
".. we have no intention of being emotional anti-Semites who
want to create the atmosphere of a pogrom. Instead, our hearts are
filled with an inexorable determination to attack the evil at its roots
and to extirpate it root and branch. In order to reach our goal every
means will be justified, even if we have to make a pact with the devil."
