Goering (shouting): “Why did you not kill 200 Jews instead of destroying so many valuables!” Heydrich (defensively): “36 Jews were killed.” [Words uttered during ministerial discussion with a representative of the German insurance industry after Kristallnacht.] Kristallnacht was pretty-well the last of the Nazi’s anti-Jewish exercises that was more incentivised than directly commanded and supervised.
Kristallnacht was pretty-well the last of the Nazi’s anti-Jewish exercises that was more incentivised than directly commanded and supervised. As the party court (the Uschla) reported afterwards, low-level nazi party comrades understood that “certain hints meant more than their mere verbal contents”, so when told that “von Rath’s murder was a crime of Jewry as a whole … every party comrade should know what to do”, they went out and – to the great annoyance of Goering when he realised the economic impact – did a fantastic amount of property damage while only killing, by later standards, a derisory number of Jews.
BLM operate the same way. The stormtroopers broke glass and smashed things up because fire could spread to ‘aryan’ properties, whereas BLM dodn’t care if black-owned businesses burn. But with exception of that very peculiar way of not making racial distinctions, BLM showed the same common tendency of an incentivised but loosely-commanded Western/European mob to do a lot of property damage for each life taken.
