Unity Mitford, of the famous English Mitford sisters, seated at table next to Hitler in Bayreuth, Germany in 1936. Hitler says in this episode he liked best dining with pretty women.

Ray Goodwin and Carolyn Yeager read and comment on the March 7-24, 1942 dinner table monologues by the German Leader, as taken down in shorthand by trusted aides. On March 21st the note-taker switches from Heinrich Heim to Henry Picker. 1hr36min. Included in this episode:

  • Jealousy among women explained as result of prehistoric period when female protection depended on one man;

  • Hitler compares men and women to the detriment of women at 3 different mealtimes;

  • Hitler on smoking and why/when he quit the habit-(Who knew he had ever smoked?!);

  • Questions of the Wehrmacht, private property vs the State, lotteries and gambling, Capitalism and monopolies;

  • Stafford Cripps a more threatening figure than Churchill to the health of the British Empire;

  • The disastrous influence of Jews on the Arts--the genuine artist and the fake.

The edition of Hitler's Table Talk being used was translated by Norman Cameron and R.H. Stevens, published by Enigma Books, New York, and can be found as a pdf here.


It was Stafford Cripps who negotiated for Stalin's promise in 1940 that he would bring the USSR into the war on the British side.
As I recall Cripps also had a daughter that married a Negro. Total scumbag.

From Wikipedia - Cripps had four children, the youngest ...

Peggy Cripps, born Enid Margaret Cripps (1921–2006), children's author and philanthropist. Peggy Cripps shocked much British opinion by marrying the black African aristocrat Nana Joseph Emmanuel Appiah (1918–1990), a relative of the Ashanti king of Ghana, in June 1953. Peggy Appiah had one son and three daughters. Her son is the philosopher Kwame Anthony Appiah (b. May 1954 London), the Laurance S. Rockefeller professor of philosophy at Princeton University. Her three daughters live in Namibia, Nigeria, and Ghana and have eight children between them.

What was responsible for this?

He was intensely religious all his life, but belonged to no church. In the 1920s he became a leader in the World Alliance to Promote International Friendship through the Churches, as his father had been. In 1923 to 1929 Cripps was the group's treasurer and its most energetic lecturer

This was the second time in Table Talk that Hitler expressed his disgust for a police state. This time more Stasi style snitching. Interesting and a powerful argument against Antifa.
