Yeah, because it was all a secret Jewish conspiracy no documents can be
found today. I have a word in my dictionary for people who argue like this.

Certainly. We just define Hugo Stinnes, Fritz Thyssen, Gustav Krupp von
Bohlen und Halbach as Jews and we can prove Jewish backing for Hitler.

This does not prove anything here. German army was (and is) a conscription
army. There were even communists inside the Hitler's army. It would be
absurd to say the Communists supported Hitler.

All the cases apply to 'Mischlinge', not to Jews (in the sense of the
Nurremberg laws).
There was one prominent case (Erhard Milch, who had a Jewish father) and it
was Goering and not Hitler.
The cases documented by Rigg have to be seen in the context of the desperate
demand of the German army for conscripts.
In our context (Jewish support for Hitler) it is irrelevant.

Again I am asking for the sources. German conservatives of the Weimar
Republic were as anti-semtitc as the Nazis itself.
