    Dr. Arnold A. Hutschnecker.

    Dr Arnold A Hutschnecker is perhaps not a name that many will be familiar with.

    To be honest, I had never heard of the man either, until I happened to randomly read an article about him, in a magazine, about two weeks ago.

    For those who don't know who is was (note past tense!), he was a psychiatrist, who once treated President Nixon, therefore, definitely a 'real' doctor, with genuine credentials.

    Over these past years, I have heard many American friends who I keep in touch with, some born there, some ex pat's, speak of a 'collective insanity', which they feel has become 'viral', within the nation.

    Now, please, before you read the piece, written by the Dr, for the American Journal of Psychiatry, note that

    A) I make no claims as to how much value or merit that there may be in it.

    B) I am only interested in mature discussion on the Dr's findings, that is to say, I do not wish this to descend into some boring anti semite(sic) arguement.

    Now, with those two things in mind, I ask you to read, think, and give me your thoughts on this;

    Evidence that Jews are carriers of schizophrenia is disclosed in a paper prepared for the American Journal of Psychiatry by Dr. Arnold A. Hutschnecker, the New York psychiatrist who once treated President Nixon.

    In a study entitled "Mental Illness: The Jewish Disease" Dr. Hutschnecker said that although all Jews are not mentally ill, mental illness is highly contagious and Jews are the principal sources of infection.

    Dr. Hutschnecker stated that every Jew is born with the seeds of schizophrenia and it is this fact that accounts for the world-wide persecution of Jews.

    "The world would be more compassionate toward the Jews if it was generally realized that Jews are not responsible for their condition."

    Dr. Hutschnecker said. "Schizophrenia is the fact that creates in Jews a compulsive desire for persecution."

    Dr. Hutschnecker pointed out that mental illness peculiar to Jews is manifested by their inability to differentiate between right and wrong. He said that, although Jewish canonical law recognizes the virtues of patience, humility and integrity, Jews are aggressive, vindictive and dishonest.

    "While Jews attack non-Jewish Americans for racism, Israel is the most racist country in the world," Dr. Hutschnecker said.
    Jews, according to Dr. Hutschnecker, display their mental illness through their paranoia. He explained that the paranoiac not only imagines that he is being persecuted but deliberately creates situations which will make persecution a reality.

    Dr. Hutschnecker said that all a person need do to see Jewish paranoia in action is to ride on the New York subway. Nine times out of ten, he said, the one who pushes you out of the way will be a Jew.

    "The Jew hopes you will retaliate in kind and when you do he can tell himself you are anti-Semitic."

    During World War II, Dr. Hutschnecker said, Jewish leaders in England and the United States knew about the terrible massacre of the Jews by the Nazis. But, he stated, when State Department officials wanted to speak out against the massacre, they were silenced by organized Jewry. Organized Jewry, he said, wanted the massacre to continue in order to arouse the world's sympathy.

    Dr. Hutschnecker likened the Jewish need to be persecuted to the kind of insanity where the afflicted person mutilates himself. He said that those who mutilate themselves do so because they want sympathy for themselves. But, he added, such persons reveal their insanity by disfiguring themselves in such a way as to arouse revulsion rather than sympathy.

    Dr. Hutschnecker noted that the incidence of mental illness has increased in the United States in direct proportion to the increase in the Jewish population.

    "The great Jewish migration to the United States began at the end of the nineteenth century," Dr. Hutschnecker said. "In 1900 there were 1,058,135 Jews in the United States; in 1970 there were 5,868,555; an increase of 454.8%. In 1900 there were 62,112 persons confined in public mental hospitals in the United States; in 1970 there were 339,027, in increase of 445.7%. In the same period the U.S. population rose from 76,212,368 to 203,211,926, an increase of 166.6%. Prior to the influx of Jews from Europe the United States was a mentally healthy nation. But this is no longer true."

    Dr. Hutschnecker substantiated his claim that the United States was no longer a mentally healthy nation by quoting Dr. David Rosenthal, chief of the laboratory of psychology at the National Institute of Mental Health, who recently estimated that more than 60,000,000 people in the United States suffer from some form of "schizophrenic spectrum disorder." Noting that Dr. Rosenthal is Jewish, Dr. Hutschnecker said that Jews seem to take a perverse pride in the spread of mental illness.

    Dr. Hutschnecker said that the word "schizophrenia" was given to mental disease by dr. Eugen Blueler, a Swiss psychiatrist, in 1911. Prior to that time it had been known as "dementia praecox," the name used by its discoverer, Dr. Emil Kraepelin. Later, according to Dr. Hutschnecker, the same disease was given the name "neurosis" by Dr. Sigmund Freud.

    "The symptoms of schizophrenia were recognized almost simultaneously by Bleuler, Kraepelin and Freud at a time when Jews were moving into the affluent middle class," Dr. Hutschnecker said. "Previously they had been ignored as a social and racial entity by the physicians of that era. They became clinically important when they began to intermingle with non-Jews."

    Dr. Hutschnecker said that research by Dr. Jacques S. Gottlieb of Wayne State University indicates that schizophrenia is caused by deformity in the alpha-two-globulin protein, which in schizophrenics is corkscrew-shaped. The deformed protein is apparently caused by a virus which, Dr. Hutschnecker believes, Jews transmit to non-Jews with whom they come in contact. He said that because those descended from Western European peoples have not built up an immunity to the virus they are particularly vulnerable to the disease.

    "There is no doubt in my mind," Dr. Hutschnecker said, "that Jews have infected the American people with schizophrenia. Jews are carriers of the disease and it will reach epidemic proportions unless science develops a vaccine to counteract it."

    And that was my initial reaction, also.

    However, can one really dismiss this, in it's entirety, Midas?

"In 1900 there were 1,058,135 Jews in the United States; in 1970 there were 5,868,555; an increase of 454.8%.

    That sounds very much like a confusion of cause and effect, or far more likely the good Dr. seeking another perceived 'reason' to blame the Jews for every ill there is; there could be 1,001 different reasons for the decline in the mental health of a population, a far more pressured life style being the obvious one. There's probably been a very large increase in the number of dogs in America over a similar period - using the same logic perhaps they're responsible for all the mental health issues, not the Jews!

    Anti canine post, imo -

    There seems to be very little data re this Dr out there, on the interwebby.

    I've checked Wiki, and a few other sources, and there is not a lot.

    Given that he was clearly deemed high ranking enough to work for a former US President, one might have expected more info.

    Re: Dr. Arnold A. Hutschnecker.

    I did find this though, which, in the context of this thread, I feel is interesting;


    'Dr. Hutschnecker was born in Austria and educated in Berlin. After reading ''Mein Kampf,'' he became a vocal critic of Hitler, family members said, referring to him in public as a pig. Patients who had joined the SS warned Dr. Hutschnecker that he was in danger, and in 1936, he left Germany for New York.'

    Exactly how much importance was put into recording the psychological conditions of people in America before 1900? Was mental illness not just swept under the carpet with the worst cases locked away in asylums? Lies damn lies and statistics as a man once said. I also agree with Midas Hutschnecker was using inductive reasoning in his conclusions.

    As to the man being given legitimacy for "treating" Nixon (according to this he refused any treatment, he just liked the man and after all Nixon was notoriously good at picking associates), I would think it a case for illegitimacy given Nixon's subsequent behaviour.

    One final thing, being vocal in one's criticism of Hitler did not make one immune from being anti-Semitic; after all it was rife and acceptable in those days and held as common sense.

    I don't know (is my honest answer).

    The quote/findings only deal with 1900 onwards, it would appear.
