Hitler Was a Vegetarian

There are lot's of interesting little quotes about Hitler that may or may not be true, but the one that Alan Moore keeps repeating in the Watchmen is:

"Hitler was vegetarian"
Which makes Ahnold's recent slur on vegetarianism an interesting thing, since he was called the "Austrian Oak" by his American promoter, Joe Weider. In his time, he generally cornered the market on the pop culture Aryan Superman. Like Hitler, Ahnold is Austrian, and the oak leaves are a classic Germanic symbol that Hitler used to decorate his most heroic soldiers.

I so appreciate this post at halfpasthuman:

why i should be the vegetarian who gets to hit arnold schwarzenegger....and how i would go about it.

Arnold is one of our modern Aryan facades - a media fabricated model that is useful from time to time to drag out of retirement to promote this or that agenda. Apparently vegetarianism is now considered a threat, or maybe it's all a plan to promote soylent green.

I suppose I should consider vegetarianism with an open mind, and care not what Hitler or Arnold thinks about it. But the thing is, I do care. I care for the earth and for the people who live on her, and for the plants, and for the animals. I myself, would like to hit Arnold, but I'm afraid I don't yet have the wisdom of clif high, and would not pull my punches. Plus, I'd probably lose.

Hitler wasn't a vegetarian at all. Consider the historical facts:

• Biographers who wrote about Hitler (and who knew him quite well on a personal basis) openly describe his love for Bavarian sausages and game pie ("game" meaning wild meat from birds and other creatures).

• Hitler's own chef openly talked about Hitler's love for stuffed pigeon.

• In none of Hitler's speeches or writing did Hitler state he was a vegetarian or speak in favor of vegetarianism.

• Hitler was regularly given injections of a protein serum made from the testicles of a bull -- not exactly a treatment that would be tolerated by vegetarians.

I imagine that vegetarians would like to distance themselves from a "vegetarian Hitler". Mike Adams, the "Health Ranger", is well known to run rather fast and loose with the facts.

According to Hitler's personal valet, Heinz Linge, Hitler would, on occasion, lecture guests on the evils of eating meat:

"Linge mentions that Hitler interminably lectured him on the subject believing that without meat people "would live to be 150 to 180 years of age, which had been the case in antiquity, as one could see from the sagas (Linge, p36)."
