Jews are worse than anti-Semites

“I consider the anti-Semites to be innocuous people. The best among them are like children. They want to have something that they can ascribe the blame for an evil to which they are suffering. (…)

Much worse than the anti-Semites are the heartless leaders of the Europe-weary Jews, Herzl and Nordau.” (Rudolf Steiner)

Hopping negro dances

“The other day i went to a book store in Basel, and found the latest assortment of books that was to be printed: a negro novel, just like negroes slowly migrate into the civilisation of europe in general.

Everywhere you find this enacting of negro dances, hopping of negro dances.

But we already have this negro novel. It´s extremly boring, ghastly boring, but people devour it.” (Rudolf Steiner)

Pregnant women should not read negro novels

“Yes, i for myself am convinced, that if we receive another number of negro novels, and pass them to be read by pregnant women, you dont have to see to it that negroes come to europe, that mulattoes are generated;

just by reading negro novels a whole number of mulatto children is created in europe, who are all gray, have mulatto hair, that will look all mulatto-like.” (Rudolf Steiner)
