Josh:

Hi, Fred, my name is Josh Schell host of the Let's Start A Cult podcast. The only podcast that doesn't demand mass suicide from their listener, every single other podcast does so. So just know that you're safe here. Now with that crazy claim out of the way, let me introduce to you my guests, this episode, you may know them from the amazingly popular show. The Dumb, Found Dead you may know them as John Frum and his prophet, or you may simply know them from their terrible puns. Please welcome back from excommunication, John and Patrick gentlemen, how are you doing today?

John:

Oh, my God. What kind of intro was that? Josh? I'm kinda nervous of what's going on. Like what's in store for the next, how many minutes or hours we're going to do this?

Josh:

Uh, days, days,

Patrick:

Okay.

John:

Wow.

Josh:

Last time I had you guys on I, managed to convince John that he was in fact. John Frum which as we all know is a military Jesus figure in the South Pacific islands and that he needed to get back to his people. So John, I have to ask, have you made it back to the islands yet?

John:

Not yet because we still have quarantine going on, but I do have intentions of going to the Pacific sometime this year. So my people, I shall return.

Josh:

Hey, he's coming. He's coming.

John:

That's what she said.

Patrick:

Blame Blame it on COVID

John:

I'm blaming it on COVID because whatever

Patrick:

Everyone else is doing it.

Josh:

fuck it.

Patrick:

Yeah Amazon be like, Oh, sorry. Due to COVID your package is late.

John:

Well due to COVID, I will not be returning to my people yet.

Josh:

Well, I'm glad you're here and I'm glad you're here as well, Patrick, I'll need both of you for this one. because today I need to discuss John Frum's nemesis. And the reason for John Frum's entire existence, in today's episode of the Let's Start A Cult podcast we will be telling the story of a young boy from an impoverished Austrian family who managed to crawl his way to the top of an organization that would later terrorize the entire European continent and the world. This is the first part in a two part series of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party.

Patrick:

I'm in.

John:

Oh, you awe damn. Ah, damn ladies and gentlemen, if we get canceled, for this episode, I blame Josh Schell completely.

Josh:

I'm taking you guys down with me. This is the mass suicide our careers.

John:

My God.

Patrick:

Okay.

Josh:

Now you might be questioning why I'm doing an episode on Hitler because he wasn't. By definition, a cult leader. However, I would argue that he had a similar rise to power, much like a cult leader, ran the party much like a cult leader. And I believe looking at the Nazi party as a cult rather than a political party, allows us to view it in a different lens and maybe see something new or learn something new, you know? do you guys agree or am I just being a crazy podcast?

John:

I'm trying to mentally prepare myself.

Patrick:

I definitely think yeah Why isn't it considered a cult Cause it was definitely a let's put it, it was a Culty, culty type of movement.

John:

Exactly. He fits like all the descriptions of being a cult leader. Charismatic.

Patrick:

Maybe it's too big. It was too big.

John:

Okay. Okay. So it was too popular. Is that what you're trying to say?

Patrick:

Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Cool. It's more a,

Josh:

it was too mainstream. Yeah.

Patrick:

Yeah, it was too mainstream. It wasn't underground enough.

John:

Damn. So he wasn't Adolf hipster

Josh:

Oh, damn, it's coming out already.

John:

God damn. I'm sorry. I'm always ready.

Josh:

yeah, I think because it's seen as more of a political party, people just don't they don't look to see it as anything else, but I could argue It was definitely a cult. and I'm here to prove that to everyone in this Part one. Oh, not in part one part two. We'll prove more of it. But, uh, do you guys want to learn more or do you guys already know everything about Hitler? Sure. Yeah.

John:

Did you specifically pick two Brown people to do a story about Adolf Hitler knowing damn well, he doesn't like us.

Josh:

yeah, I mean, I didn't think of it that way.

John:

Yeah

Josh:

my main connection was John Frum because, he was a military leader in world war two, which fought against Hitler. So I that's why I wanted to have you guys on race. Didn't did not come into it.

John:

Good answer. Good

Josh:

You're trying to mass suicide my career. All right, let's jump into it. Adolf Hitler was born on April 20th, 1889 in a small Austrian border town called Braunau am Inn. Both of his parents, came from humble beginnings. His father Eloise was the illegitimate son of a housemaid and worked as a state of customs, official Klara poles, pulleys poles, something like that. Adolf's mother was Eloise's third wife, and this marriage produced a total of five children. Gustaf Ida Otto, Adolf Edmund and Paula, unfortunately only two of them would make it into adulthood, Gustavo and Ida contracted diptheria in December, 1887 and died within weeks of each other, which is super unfortunate because diptheria was. like it only came around in 84, I think. So three years and then they got it and died from it. On the other hand, Otto passed away soon after his birth. Well, Edmond only lived at six years. so pretty, terrible upbringing, you know, having four of your siblings pass away or. Yeah. Four of your siblings passed away, like right away. Got a suck.

Patrick:

Only me

Josh:

Oh

Patrick:

I can be the only child

John:

it's six minutes into the damn recording and you got conspiracy theories already wrong

Josh:

You're derailing this whole script. We got to go off on that. Now it could have been, God damn.

Patrick:

and we're just going to fly by that. He was born on 4/20 too?

Josh:

That's true. That's true. Did Hitler love weed?

John:

Oh

Patrick:

He had to be on something to do something like that.

Josh:

Yeah, he was on a lot of drugs

John:

damn it. I had a joke, but I'm not going to do it.

Josh:

Throw it out. I'll cut it out if it's too terrible.

John:

No. It's terrible. It's too terrible.

Josh:

All right. All right. We'll cut all of this out.

Patrick:

The whole episodes, chalk.

Josh:

It's just redacted. The whole thing I'm in, two paragraphs there. This is like a 10 page thing. Despite this string of tragedies and their impoverished circums, the family may do in 1876. They changed their last name to Hitler, which was the Christian name of the man who married Eloise's mother Marianne five years after his birth. He had carried her maiden name. Schickel Gruber all his life, but eventually managed to establish his claim to her husband's surname. And I think it's kind of crazy and funny how close we were to having a racist tyrant named Adolf Schickel Gruber, doesn't quite strike the evilness that I think he was going for When Adolf was six, his father retired from government service and moved the family to Lynn's the capital city of upper Austria, unable to stay idle. he bought and sold farms, raising beets and spending his free time drinking in local inns. The young Adolf admired his father's work ethic. However, the two often didn't see eye to eye. Alois was an authoritarian and an overbearing husband, as well as an aggressive and a violent father. his wife was the exact opposite. Klara was reportedly quiet and solemn working throughout the day to keep the home in top shape to please her husband. She considered Adolf her favorite child and he in turn dotted on his mother. This relationship was far from healthy though. According to the American historian and scholar, Louis L Snyder quote, despite her love. However, he developed into a discontented and resentful child, psychologically, she unconsciously made him and through him, the world would pay for her unhappiness with her husband. Adolf feared his strict father, a hard and difficult man who set pattern r the youngsters own brutal view of life. There was a deep tension between two unbending wills. It is probable that Hitler's later fierce hatreds came in part from his hostility to his father. He learned early in life that the right was always on the side of the stronger one end quote. So bit of a public service announcement, don't be hostile towards your kids. Or

Patrick:

become Adolf Hitler

Josh:

Adolf Shukla Gruber or whatever

Patrick:

sounds like a sausage

Josh:

does.

John:

I was going to say it sounds like the fucking villain from Phineas and Ferb Inc

Josh:

That was a great impression. Oh, you shit.

Patrick:

You watch too much bro

John:

Hey come on man I got Disney plus now All right Chill

Josh:

Oh, damn flexing on us with that Disney plus too.

Patrick:

yeah Right

Josh:

As a child Adolf, enjoyed playing games that involved, fighting and reenacting battles scenes from the Boer War. He mirrored, his father's authoritarian nature and love to give orders, playing the role of a commando responsible for rescuing South African farmers from English concentration camps. So that's like a noble cause. Yeah. And ironic. Yes.

John:

Jesus crust

Josh:

his favorite game, however, reportedly involved shooting a rat with an air gun. I mean, I get it. Rats are kind of gross, but

John:

Not enough to shoot it

Josh:

Yeah. As a child too.

John:

down They've got Nerf guns back in what In the 19 whatever How how old is he

Josh:

Well air guns are like BB guns, I think so. Yeah.

Patrick:

he's got a shot on him If he could hit a rat

Josh:

true. Yeah. I don't know if that's, that's the only thing I could find on it. So I don't know if he was good at it or if he just really wanted to do it and couldn't hit them. I don't know. Despite a stellar academic performance in primary school, Adolf found himself increasingly disenchanted with his time in secondary school, he had been enrolled in real shool. Which refers to an educational institution with a focus on science and technology. These subjects weren't Adolfs forte though, and it didn't take long for his grades to drop significantly. And I don't blame him. Mine would have plummeted if I was just doing science and math.

Patrick:

Yeah for

Josh:

More of a, more of an arts degree guy.

John:

More of a lunch guy So my best subject.

Josh:

That's fair. I don't know where to go. In addition to his academics, our social skills deteriorated as well. His classmates refuse to accept him as one of their leaders and he despised his teachers. Whom he believed only aimed to stuff children's brains with facts and information rather than actually teaching them. And God damn does that not sound like every anti-science blogger on the internet, just trying to stuff my kids' heads with facts and shit.

John:

He It sounds like Sheldon from big bang theory.

Josh:

True. The young Sheldon or whatever that dumb spin, For their part Adolf, us teachers also disliked him. One of them, Dr. Eduard Humer, later recalled the school boy as having definite talent, but lacking self discipline with a cantankerous and lazy personality who demanded absolute subservience from his fellow pupils. So a little bit of foreshadowing there I think. Soon after his father's death in 1903, Adolf off dropped out of secondary school and began pursuing his dream of becoming an artist. However, his plans were interrupted in 1907. When his mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, Klara underwent an operation to remove the tumor in her chest. However, it was already too late, With the cancer slowly spreading throughout her body. She became bedridden and Adolf took to sleeping in an adjacent bedroom so that he could be summoned anytime she needed him. His mother's disease. Didn't derail his plans though in autumn of 1907, Adolf off traveled to Vienna where he was joined by one of his friends, a man named Augustus who intended to study Viola at the city's Academy of Music. On the other hand, Adolf, sent a portfolio to the Academy of Fine Arts. his drawings were found to be unsatisfactory and his application was turned down. This rejection stung even more when he found out that August had scored place at the Academy of music. So I know it's a meme that Adolf gets rejected and it turns into a tyrant, but that's not a hundred percent true as we'll see, like he gets rejected the first time in this kind of just like, yeah, I was shitty, but whatever he moved on with his life. He actually gets rejected twice, which we'll talk about the second time later. Upon hearing that his mother was close to death, Adolf rushed home to spend her final days by her side. Klara was in great pain during this time. And while she refused to complain, every grimace that crossed her face devastated her son. To ease her condition she was given a shot of morphine from time to time, which Adolf was extremely grateful. The cancer was too much for her frail 48 year old body though, and on December 21st, 1907, Klara passed away her death devastated Adolf who wrote that quote. It was the conclusion of a long and painful illness, which from the beginning left little hope of recovery. Yet it was a dreadful blow, particularly for me. I had honored my father but my mother. I had loved end quote. From then on, he reportedly carried a photograph of his mother wherever he went. I believe his mother's passing actually played a huge part in who Adolf became, because like, she was kind of his connection to humanity, like she was only the one he truly loved. And when she passed away, I think that, that was the last thing that was grounding him to do that. So,

John:

He sounded like he got this disassociated with himself

Josh:

Yeah. And I think that is because like once his mother was gone, he didn't really have anyone else. Right. He had a gun August or a gust or whatever his name is, but he's too busy playing the Viola or whatever the.

Patrick:

Yeah And it's a constant reminder that he didn't make it

Josh:

Exactly. He's like, can you please stop practicing?

John:

When weird flux into a world war

Josh:

I get it. You can hit the high notes. Fuck off.

Patrick:

exactly

Josh:

I will kill you.

Patrick:

take over the world

Josh:

I will destroy all the Viola's. So that no one in

Patrick:

That's what the whole war was about That was where it was didn't care about the people he just wanted All of y'all was

Josh:

it just happened that the people he killed had the virus. violas no.

John:

Oh boy

Josh:

A wild conspiracy again, number two from.

John:

this has a chance to go really really bad in a really bad slippery slope with us too around here

Josh:

I cannot wait, cause I need those cliques. after Klara is done, Adolf returned to Vienna where he lived with August, despite the hustle and bustle of the cosmopolitan city, he found himself isolated from the rest of his peers. He was completely indifferent towards them ignoring even the women who expressed an interest in him. Feeling lonely and projected Adolf off, threw himself into books, consuming a wide variety of literature that would eventually form the basis of, ideology that would later make him infamous. So books are bad. That's the, that's what I talk about. Don't read only consume podcasts

Patrick:

There you go

Josh:

He also began painting and drawing pen and ink copies of Vienna's tourist sites on cards, which he would then sell in taverns with an acquaintance named Ryan. Hold on shit on Aneesh. Don't that

John:

Ryan hold honey Shit Is that what I heard And antiquities That's going to be my new Twitter name Ryan hold honey Shit

Josh:

And just tweeting about how you're selling those. I have a rare antique here for you only $1,200. today. in September, 1908, Adolf off applied once again to the Academy of fine arts, where he was told that he was better suited to architecture. Ooh. I don't know if that's a burn, huh? Lack of school certificates made him ineligible for admission, which enraged him to no end this anger, spurred him to leave the flat that he had been sharing with August, although with little money and no friends to turn to, he effectively became homeless. So Patrick, I think you're onto something. He was like, I can't stand being around your Viola. I'd rather be homeless.

Patrick:

it's all August the spot That's what from this Yeah

John:

this up

Josh:

We need to change the month's name. Tish Schickel Gruber or something. I dunno. later August would say, quote. Choking with his catalog of hates. He would pour his theory over everything against mankind in general, but did not understand him who did not appreciate him and whom he was persecuted and cheated. I had the impression that Adolf Hitler became unbalanced quote,

Patrick:

could you imagine when Hitler was like doing his thing and taking over the world and whatever, and August sitting there, like fucking knew it at home Like I knew it knew that dude was to good Yeah

Josh:

I wrote a song about it here. Listen, reaches for his Viola, which is no longer there because Hitler took them off.

Patrick:

Take it away Oh

Josh:

But he still just sends Hitler postcard saying, fuck you. I still made it

Patrick:

I still made it into art school

John:

has got to be one of those postcards with the fucking music on it to

Patrick:

when you open it,

John:

him off

Josh:

He's taken over half the world and he's just like, God damn it. August.

Patrick:

Uh,

Josh:

shit. This is the summer of 1909. Saw Adolf Hitler living on the streets of Vienna. Fortunately, he was able to find rooms at a charity hostel for men. By the time winter rolled around that year, he also received call-up papers to serve in the Austria Hungarian army, but out of hatred for his native country, he ignored them. So he's, he's turned true German for some reason that I'm not a hundred percent sure why, but he's just like, yeah, fuck them. I don't care. it was during his time. August is in Germany,

John:

I was like I'm not going to join a fucking army cause of August

Josh:

Or Vienna, sorry. It was during his time in Vienna that Adolph first became interested in politics. He was a fervent supporter of Carl Lugar, a leader of the Christian social party and the city mayor. At the time later, he would claim that his antisemitic views were influenced and developed by Carl's sentiments saying that he was made to acknowledge the vast difference between regular citizens and those who belong to the Jewish race. And he was of the opinion that the latter was dirty unclean and bore the marks of moral stain on their identity. Well, thank you, Carl, for giving this angry young male, his anti-Semitic views fucking Carl Carl in 1913, he relocated to Munich in the German state of Bavaria. When world war one broke out, he successfully petitioned the King to allow him to volunteer in reserve infantry regiment, despite his Austrian citizenship. This role meant that although he was far from the front lines, he was still present at several significant conflicts, including in the battle of the Somme, where he was wounded in the leg in 1918, he was also temporarily blinded by a gas attack launched by the British, during the battle of which reportedly reduced his regimen from 3,600 men to just 611. Like all those who survived this particular battle Adolf was promoted to the rank of Lance corporal. I don't know what any of those titles mean? Sorry, John. I'm sure you do, but yeah, the

John:

Marine rank over here. So those are the tough guys I'm in the air force. So I just sit on a desk.

Josh:

You just drone strike people. Yeah. No big deal. Yeah. You don't have to see them. It was just like, eat, drink your coffee. I do not wish to shit on the military shit on me. So many times already. Okay, well, there we go. I just don't want them to point their guns at Canada. Yeah. You know what I'm saying? We love you guys focus on Mexico. We're fine. Here. Service in world war one, earned him the iron cross first class and the black wound badge. Both of which indicated that Germany was acknowledging the bravery that he exhibited on the battlefield. By all accounts off, enjoyed his time in the army. He relished the feeling of being part of a group that was fighting side by side for a common goal. Well, this fellow soldiers perceived him as odd and peculiar. His higher ups were impressed by his willingness to take on dangerous missions. Even if it put his life at great risk. So they're just like, they just hand them a gun and say, yeah, go in there. And, yeah, you're good. Thumbs up.

Patrick:

I like

Josh:

how many impressions can we get out of this episode?

Patrick:

Is that German, bro? That sounds like close

Josh:

enough. Yeah. White European, you know, for a soldier from his regiment named Hahn's mend, but later remember him as an isolated man who often sat in silence in a corner. This would be punctuated by a sudden outbursts wherein eight off Vme Lee, attacked Jews and Marxist whom he believed to be undermining Germany's war effort. While recuperating from the loss of his vision in a hospital, Northeast of Berlin, he received news of the armistice followed by information that Germany had officially declared its defeat, similar to many other Germans. He attributed this defeat to traders, particularly Jews whom he believed had been inefficiently patriotic, and thus were unable to bring the country to victory. But. Do you guys know who loves all people and will lead you to victory? Jesus. I was hoping you say John fruit, but no, actually the lovely products and services that support the show.

Patrick:

Oh, the segue

Josh:

it's, uh, you know, I want my ads to have better lead-ins but I talk about such terrible topics. It's impossible. Especially when you're. Talking about Hitler, hating the Jews, but you got to shove that in here. Yeah,

Patrick:

I did not see that coming.

Josh:

Jim Jones:

If we can't live in peace and then die in peace.

Josh:

After the war, Adolf remained attached to the German army, I due to the fact that he had no prospects in the civilian world. With neither an education nor a career life would have been an extremely difficult for him. Had he left the military in 1918, he joined the fledgling German workers party, which was an organization that aim to promote the interests of the proletariat. Well, furthering German nationalism, their work led him to believe that socialism and communism were both part of a larger Jewish conspiracy and idea that was exacerbated by the fact that majority of the countries socialist leaders at the time were Jewish. Including Victor Adler, Kurt Eisner, Rosa, Luxembourg, and Eugene Levine. More than that though in 1917, October revolution in Russia was also led by Jews, such as Leon Trotsky and George and Dino via in Aviv. And I find this fascinating because I hear a lot of people who oppose socialism online saying things like, Oh, Hitler. And the Nazis were socialists, which is very clearly false. Say hated socialism. It's well, not quite the opposite, but like they blinked then the socialists for all their issues, basically. And as well as the Jewish capitalists of the society. So they didn't, they weren't capitalists and they weren't socialists. It's just, it's wild that a lot of right-wingers say that Nazis were socialists to cast away all socialism as a Canadian with a lot of socialists. Political parties. Like it's not all bad and take there's a lot of good. The stimulus checks were nice to some of some people I know, free healthcare. I, I dunno. It's not the worst thing in the world. Wait, going back

Patrick:

to the stimulus check, did you guys really get 2000 a month?

Josh:

Not a hundred percent sure because I didn't get it, but I think it was something like that. It was like, yeah, a thousand each every other week or something like that. I think how it's done now. Yeah. But I think it's, it might be rebranded as something else. Cause we're still locked down here. So I'm not a hundred percent sure, but

Patrick:

101 time. Yeah. I got 1,201 time and then we got another 600 towards the end of the year, which, you know, made me survive for the eight months that we'd been locked down

Josh:

from Corona. You'll die from starvation or

Patrick:

whatever. Yeah. That's your

John:

dad go to the street. Go bag, play a Viola or something like,

Josh:

yeah. And you guys were like, well, at the very least, can you pay us more? And they're like, no, I don't think so.

Patrick:

I heard it from, but someone told me that Canada has given that $2,000 a month and I was like, what?

Josh:

Yeah. Yeah. It it's, uh, it was around that four. Yeah. I want to say six or eight months, and I'm not sure if they rebranded as something else. I'm not a hundred percent sure, but it was people who were unemployed during that time. So it was not me sadly. Well, not sadly, I guess. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Incidence has led eight off to believe that the Jews are responsible for the downfall of Europe's super powers. And he constantly espoused this idea to members of the German workers party with his skilled orator. Fiery speech and innate charisma. He quickly climbed the ranks of the organization to quote Spartacus educational, which that's quite the name, like title Spartacus educational, quote it off Hitler who had for years been ignored when he made political speeches. Now had a captive audience. The political climate had also changed. Germany was a defeated and disillusioned country end quote. After there was outing defeat in the first world, war Germany had been forced to give away 13% of its territory, which meant that over 6 million of its population, as well as a large percentage of raw materials was lost, the country was also made to financially compensate the allied nations, which resulted in 38% of its national wealth being given away 1928 off left the army and began working for the German workers party. Full-time. He was put in charge of his propaganda efforts, which resulted in the organization being renamed, the national socialist German workers party, or the Nazi party for short, got the name nice is also responsible for the adoption of the ancient symbol of the Hocking cruise. I think that's how you pronounce it. Or the hooked cross as its emblem. This would later become known as the swastika. The very same insignia that will forever be associated with the atrocities that Adolf Hitler and the Nazis would commit. And I mean, as far as a marketing perspective goes, he's, he's kind of killing it. Who's got a hip new symbol killing it. Jesus. I had to do it. I'm sorry. We're proud of you,

John:

Josh. Welcome to the dark

Josh:

side. If we go down, we go down together. Yeah, that's right. Ate off. Enjoyed his role in the flourishing Nazi party. Is 1925 autobiographical manifesto, mine comp. He wrote that quote. I started out with the greatest enthusiasm and love for all at once. I was offered an opportunity of speaking before a larger audience. And the thing that I had always presumed from pure feeling without knowing it was now corroborated, I could speak and I could boast of some success in the course of my lectures. I led many hundreds, indeed. Thousands of comrades, back to their people of the fatherland and quotes. He is not a very, I mean, it's obviously translated from German, but it's sentence structures very poor. By the end of the 1921, Adolf Hitler had become the defacto leader of the Nazi party. His speeches attracted former army officers. Most of whom were disgruntled and dissatisfied with how Germany had been treated in the aftermath of world war one. Among them was a man named Ernst, rom an army captain and a senior member of the Bavarian free corpse or border patrol East in all of Adolph. He recruited others to join the strong arms squad. But you officially became known as the straw. Oh no. We're not going to pronounce that one. I say stroma strum a bit too long for moly Stromboli or the essay. There you go. I didn't know it at the time, but the essay would be instrumental in Adolf Hitler's rise to power and all of that followed afterward. And that is it for part, one of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party. Good, good. Stay tuned to the reckoning. I know

Patrick:

you started to

John:

sound like a tic talker.

Josh:

I am on tick-tock I've only, so I love, we saw an abused boy lose many of his family members. Get rejected from his passion and of arts fight in world war one and become a writer fucking August and become a radicalized memory. The Nazi party. In part two, we will discuss how the Nazi party functioned its ideologies and its downfall or so-called downfall. Now does either John Froome or his prophet have anything to say about what we've talked about today? Any good puns you want to get in? No, but can we

John:
