The Last Breath of Romanian Nationalism
March 2, 2013
Nowhere was the struggle against Communist Jewish control more
brutal than in Eastern Europe.
This article commemorates the heroic Christian nationalist leader, Corneliu Codereanu (1899-1937)
and his Legionary Movement ("The Iron Guards") now smeared as "fascists" in the
Illuminati-controlled mass media.
In the 1930's, Jews represented only 3% of Romania's 20 million people; yet they dominated politics, economics and culture to an extent Jews would never tolerate from others in Israel. The Legionary Movement enjoyed brief power under the Nazis, but were soon repressed because the Nazis had no more use for nationalists than did Communists. 250,000 Romanian Jews perished under the Nazis.
1. The unification of Romanian people.
2. The elevation of peasantry through land reform and political rights.
3. The solution of "the Jewish problem."
After arriving in Iasi, Codreanu found that the city and university were heavily influenced by Communist agitators and that even many professors were Marxists. The Romanian workers were experiencing terrible working conditions and had very low wages, and had therefore been drawn to Communism by Marxist propagandists. Students at the University of Iasi were also largely converted to Communism, and Communist student meetings attacked the Army, Justice, Church, and the Crown, essentially propagating anti-Romanianism.
All of them, Codreanu found, were Jews. Realizing that like in Russia, where a largely Jewish-led Bolshevik revolution occurred a few years earlier, Romania was in danger of being taken over by Jewish Communists who would destroy everything Romanian. He commented:
This allowed an alien body in Romania, different in language, dress, religion, customs, racial type, and soul, to further infiltrate Romanian society and undoubtedly Judaize its culture. Romanian nationalists were shocked and Codreanu so much that he cried.
After explaining this situation in For My Legionaries, Codreanu reflects on how the great and highly respected Romanian leaders in 1879, after Romania won independence from the Ottoman Empire, took action to make sure that Jews would not gain any power in Romania, even though they were forced to give Jews a theoretical right of citizenship (which depended on qualification through military service, thus making only a few Jews citizens, since most Jews did not want to fight in war).
These men, whose works were read by all nationalist students, were Vasile Conta, Vasile Alecsandri, Mihail Kogalniceanu, Mihail Eminescu, Bogdan Petriceicu Hajdeu, Costache Negri, A.D. Xenopol.
Codreanu wrote of them, "Fundamentally there was no distinction among them other than differences of form and personal interests-the same thing in different shapes. They did not even have the justification of differing opinions. Their only real motivation was the religion of personal interest."
He also knew, having been educated by the works of Nicolae Paulescu, that the Jews used their economic, financial, and media power to influence the government's activities. Finally, filled with despair at the almost complete failure of the national student movement, Codreanu and his close friends, including Ion Mota, decided that they would assassinate the top Romanian politicians, top rabbis, and Jewish bankers. Codreanu wrote explaining why he was more concerned with going after the politicians:
In that same year, Duca's government, after having already terrorized, tortured, and assassinated several Legionaries, went ahead and banned the Legion to keep it from participating in elections, leading to the arrest of about 18,000 Legionaries (although Codreanu succeeded in hiding). The Legionaries Nicolae Constantinescu, Doro Belimace and Ion Caranica then assassinated Ion Duca in revenge and immediately turned themselves in to the police. Following this, the tortures and assassinations of Legionaries by the government multiplied.
By 1940, The Legionaries, under the leadership of Horia Sima, attempted to negotiate with King Carol II. Later that year, General Ion Antonescu would finally overthrow King Carol's government, resulting in the creation of a [short-lived] National Legionary State ruled jointly by Sima and Antonescu.
