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.


The Frisians are a distinct tribe across Netherlands' North Sea coast up until Bremen in Germany and again the North Sea coast of Holstein toward Denmark. Frisian is rather related to Norwegian than to Dutch/Deutsch. Their tribal identity is a bit different from their states in which they are part of. Putting them in one Gau makes sense. The Netherlands and Norway, Denmark need to be dissolved as sovereign states and their counties would become Gau too, their languages and customs stay to unite Germanic common interests and form one nation state. Germanization (Germanisierung) is different from Eindeutschung (making one Deutsch) in German. Hitler talks about Das Germanentum hier. Kind of what it was until Christianization. Magna Germania. Separate infighting Germanic tribes are the greatest threat to each other, just as the inner Deutschland struggle lasted for centuries before. 
For Americans, the comparison of the Civil War is accurate for Germany's inner struggle. And the merging/annexation of Canada and the US is next into a Greater American Republic. The USA as such would go under too, not only Canada. 
Telling Dutch, Norwegians AND Germans that they are now Germanics (Germanen) was the task of transformation. Norwegian, Deutsch, Danish would cease to exist as nationality and only Germanic would prevail. Deutsch, Danish etc would remain as local identity, such as it was the case after Germany's unification of Bavarians, Saxons etc. 
Basically the same process of German unification, but on a macro German level. Hitler didn't invent that, others before spoke of such unions, including the author of the Norwegian national anthem. 

I'm a Pan-Germanist, I'm a Teuton, and the greatest dream of my life is for the South Germanic peoples and the North Germanic peoplesand their brothers in diaspora to unite in a fellow confederation.
—Bjørnson, [4]

That explains what Hitler and Himmler were talking about during that dinner session -- a greater Germanic entity. Thanks very much for this. From your Bjornson link:

In modern times the term occasionally has been used to refer to ethnic groups who speak a Germanic language and claim ancestral and cultural connections to ancient Germanic peoples.[3] Within this context, modern Germanic peoples include the Norwegians, Swedes, Danes, Icelanders, Germans, Austrians, English, Dutch, Afrikaners, Flemish, Frisians, Scots language speakers ...

This is what makes it so wrong to have, for example, a million Serbians living in Germany and Austria alone, and a million more elsewhere in Western Europe, changing the genetics of Germans. It is a form of pollution AND German genocide. This is what's wrong with "White Nationalism" -- it makes out that there is no distinction between Whites.

I want to talk about this further on Monday's Heretics' Hour, using what is in Table Talk and whatever else can be learned about it in the meantime. I'd like you to come on the program, Markus, if you would. I'm starting to see a much clearer picture.

We have to remember that during after-dinner conversations they are just talking about things, not making policy.

I can't promise to call in, Carolyn. But thank you for the invitation. 
To be fair, Volksdeutsche lived too in Hungary and elsewhere in Eastern Europe. The difference is, they were called by the monarchs (Russian Tsar for example) to improve their countries. The Germans came and built cities, farms etc to improve the economies of the host nations but remained in their designated areas. Eastern Europeans coming to Western Europe now, don't create anything new. They take over German or British cities, jobs etc. or benefit if a new invention is made by Germans to replace German workers. 
We often hear how beautiful Slavic women are and that is true. But differences among Whites are not only looks and they aren't only positive for one side or the other. "Anglo-Saxon work ethic" is the Germanic nature. Creating harmonic societies in which the Volk lives a peaceful life or be altruistic and booster foreign nations as Volksdeutsche did is the German soul, not necessarily the "White soul", although White in America is basically German/ic only. 
 This Inner-European mass-influx to Germanic lands eats up the Germanic genetic capital. It creates Volksdeutsche in Germans' own countries to help out other Whites, who are not of the German type and who expelled Volksdeutsche from their lands to find out now, that wasn't in their interest after all. If Eastern Europeans wish to benefit from the Germans, they should reimport Volksdeutsche or English/Dutch etc to their lands, instead of flocking to the Germanic nucleus.
