Wayne has some smattering of history, but his view of the rise of Nazism is drawn more from the Morning of the Magicians (1960) of Pauwels and Bergier than from facts, so he sees Hitler as the culmination of a secret stream that began with the Gnostics, whose legacy the Freemasons transmitted to Theosophy and thus to Nazism. The only part of that which is true is that some Nazi theorists drew on Theosophical material to concoct their Aryan race theory. Wayne knows some of this, but he prefers to offer a conspiratorial approach. He also doesn’t know how to pronounce anything, so he calls Helena Blavatsky “Blahff-skai.”
Wayne mistakenly believes that the Nazis widely shared Heinrich Himmler’s occult beliefs, and therefore he asserts that Himmler’s interest in the Holy Grail, which Himmler believed to be a pagan magic object, is actually a mask for a search for the Nephilim bloodline. To this he adds a belief taken from modern pseudoscience that the Nazis believed in a high-tech Atlantis filled with superhuman beings and wonder-weapons. I suppose it’s charming that he claims that Edward Bulwer-Lytton’s fictional magic substance vril, later taken over by Theosophy under the mistaken notion that it was real, isn’t what either Bulwer or Theosophy said it was but rather is the taint of the Nephilim in one’s blood!
Wayne believes that vril is likely the Rh-negative blood line, representing the Nephilim’s contribution to the Aryan bloodline. I will admit that this is the first I have heard of the claim that that Aryan race and its allies on Atlantis were the “natural enemy” of the pure Semitic race of Adam and the Israelites. I suppose in a way it’s the natural outgrowth of Ignatius Donnelly’s idea that Atlantis was the land populated by the Nephilim, but it took Pounders to stop things for a moment and remind listeners that they are not calling any Rh-negative or Aryan viewers evil. Wayne, though, says that the “Isis gene” will help Nephilim descendants “vibrate” to godhood. This seems to originate in a crazy 2003 web page that argues that “Genesis” means “gene of Isis,” so you know it has to be true.
This might have been cute or even seem harmless until Wayne alleges that the Jews, specifically the Rothschilds and their fellow international bankers, created the Nazi party to resurrect the Nephilim and to “correct” their mistake, communism. That’s pretty much just offensive however you look at it.
Wayne believes Hitler was possessed by a demon (i.e. a Nephilim), a claim that bubbles up from Pauwels and Bergier, but which excuses the evils of Nazism as not really the fault of the Nazis but of some supernatural evil. This is dangerous because it gives license to ignore the atrocities of Nazism as something that human beings could not have actually done, and therefore we have no reason to look within ourselves to understand the origins of evil. Similarly, Wayne believes that Nostradamus was a prophet of Satan and had genuine knowledge of the coming of Hitler.
Wayne stops to deliver a polemic against the Democratic Party, arguing that it is “offensive” to him to call the party by its given name. “They are not the Democratic Party,” he said. “They are the Democrat party.” Wayne is a conservative and therefore follows Rush Limbaugh in petty insult, though with the rationalization that “democratic” is an incorrect adjective for what he (wrongly) believes to be the survival of National Socialism in America. I have news for you, Gary: If you think Democrats don’t believe in democracy, well, Republicans aren’t too keen on our Republic. And in Australia you have a Liberal party that is conservative. Formal names are just that; you don’t get to rename at your convenience.
When it became clear that Wayne was using his alleged discussion of Nazism to deliver a sermon on the evils of American liberalism, I decided to shut off his hateful homily. The Nephilim, apparently, are not important for their proof of Biblical supernaturalism but because they help angry conservatives diabolize their political enemies in order to gin up votes for Republican politicians—just as that well-known lover of the rich, the powerful, and the elite, Jesus, intended.
