Horror in Hamburg: German Version of “Hamilton”

As if the hyped-up Broadway Freak Show about a hyped-up villain of history wasn’t “woke” idiotic enough — now comes word that the moronic musical has been duplicated for audiences in occupied Germany.

Gino Emnes (Aaron Burr) and Benet Monteiro (Alexander Hamilton) are in the German production of “Hamilton.”
NY Times: 
They Translated ‘Hamilton’ Into German. Was It Easy? Nein.


For the musical’s Hamburg premiere, a team wrestled with language and cultural differences to bring the story alive for a new audience.

As if the hyped-up Broadway Freak Show about an equally hyped-up villain of American history — featuring mulatto / Hispanic actors playing the 18th Century Anglo-Saxon founders of the United States — wasn’t “woke” idiotic enough; now comes word that the moronic musical has been duplicated for stupefied audiences in occupied Germany.

From the article’s opening:

“For the last four years, a team of translators has been working with the “Hamilton” creators to develop a German version — The German-speaking cast — most of them black actors, reflecting the show’s defining decision to retell America’s revolutionary origins with the voices of today’s diverse society — is now in the final days of rehearsal.”

Adding insanity to idiocy, we learn that the German cast isn’t merely of mixed race, but straight-up Black instead! Nothing against “people of color” (Me Included) per se, you understand – but come on man! Were it not for its blot-out-Whitey-from-history symbolism, this spectacle would be laughable. You wouldn’t expect to see a blond-haired / blue eyed actor playing the part of Martin Luther King, or Simon Bolivar for example, would you?

I know, Mr. First President. I know I know, Mein Fuhrer. I know lol

This horror in Hamburg does offer us a “teachable moment” to bring the exalted reputation of Alexander Hamilton – the nation’s first Secretary of the Treasury – down a few notches. Contrary to the wishes of many of America’s founders, the non-American-born Hamilton (British West Indies) passionately advocated for the establishment of the First Bank of the United States — the privately owned “Fed” of its day. When Hamilton submitted a report to Congress outlining his proposal in 1790, he used the charter of the Bank of England as the model.

Among others, Thomas Jefferson — primary author of the Declaration of Independence and first Secretary of State — feared that a central bank would create a dangerous financial monopoly favoring financiers over plantation owners and family farmers, who tended to be debtors. Jefferson also argued that the Constitution did not grant the government the authority to establish corporations, including a national bank. Despite the contentious opposing voices, Hamilton’s bill cleared Congress and President George Washington signed the bill into law in 1791.

During the young nation’s first “Bank War,” Hamilton had been accused by some of pursuing policies to enrich Jewish financiers overseas (here).  When the first subscriptions to the new bank quickly sold out, an editorial in a Philadelphia newspaper fingered “Amsterdam Jews” as among those “bereft of  honesty or industry” who would benefit from Hamilton’s bank. (here)

Given Hamilton’s closeness to and gushing admiration for “the usual suspects,” it’s not surprising that he wanted such an institution (a destructive institution which died 20 years later when Congress refused to renew its charter, thus triggering the UK-US war of 1812). As a child, Hamilton, born out of wedlock, was educated in a Jewish school which was run out of a synagogue (here) and learned to speak Hebrew. That fact, combined with his “Danish” stepfather’s Jewish-sounding surname of “Lavien,” has prompted even some Establishment whorestorians to speculate that he may have been raised Jewish. In any event, Alexander “Levine” was not shy about declaring his love and even mystical reverence for “The Tribe.” He once wrote:

“The state and progress of the Jews, from their earliest history to the present time, has been so entirely out of the ordinary course of human affairs, is it not then a fair conclusion, that the cause also is an extraordinary one—in other words, that it is the effect of some great providential plan? The man who will draw this conclusion, will look for the solution in the Bible. He who will not draw it ought to give us another fair solution.”

Hamilton also advocated in favor of Jewish immigration and once argued in a court case:

“Why distrust the evidence of the Jews? Discredit them and you destroy the Christian religion.”

Oh barf! He sounds as bad as the Austrian Count Kalergi

1. The Jefferson-Hamilton rivalry wasn’t just about monetary ideology. Jefferson viewed Hamilton as ambitious and corrupt. // 2. Hamilton won the first “Bank War” and the First Bank of the United States (owned in large part by foreign shareholders) was established in Philadelphia. // 3. Ah, show us the shekels, Alex. Show us the shekels!

Hamilton made bitter enemies not just because of economic differences; but because he was a sneaky, dishonorable and dirty tactician — an elitist scumbag with both a keen intellect and a legendary “gift of gab” which appeared to have President Washington under its spell at times. Many of Hamilton’s founding contemporaries — including FOUR future Presidents: John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison & James Monroe — not only opposed Hamilton’s grand schemes, but they all despised him on a personal level. Though the whorestorians do not dispute this astonishing universal antipathy toward the arrogant bankster; it is seldom mentioned in the modern white-washing (or shall we say, “black-washing”?) of St. Alexander.

Aside from the banksterism, following is a bullet point review of Hamilton’s other most shameful antics:

Offered to lead soldiers to violently crush the Whiskey Tax Rebellion in Pennsylvania — an idea which Washington refused before resolving the matter peacefully
* Slept with another man’s wife (The Maria Reynolds Affair) and later paid off her husband to keep the matter quiet, until it was finally exposed
* Circulated nasty pamphlets personally attacking John Adams
Falsely accused Jefferson — who was a Deist — of being an “atheist”
Used a pen name to falsely accuse Jefferson of keeping a Black slave-girl as his concubine  the origin of the Sally Hemmings baby LIE.

As is often the case with these types of characters, they eventually mess with the wrong man. In Hamilton’s case, that would be Jefferson’s sitting Vice President, Aaron Burr.

Burr was running for Governor of New York in 1804 and lost to little known Morgan Lewis. He blamed his loss on a personal smear campaign orchestrated by the great smear-master Hamilton — a Kingmaker of New York politics. In April, the Albany Register published a letter from Dr. Charles D. Cooper to Philip Schuyler, which relayed Hamilton’s judgment that Burr was “a dangerous man and one who ought not to be trusted with the reins of government,” and claiming to know of “a still more despicable opinion which General Hamilton has expressed of Mr. Burr.” It was the word “despicable” that triggered Burr. In June, Burr wrote to Hamilton, seeking a clarification and disavowal of the remark attributed to him. When Hamilton refused, Burr challenged him to a duel — which took place across the Hudson River on July 12, 1804 at Weehawken Heights, New Jersey because there were laws against dueling in New York.

And that, boys and girls was the end of Alexander “Levine” Hamilton.

Good shot, Mr. Burr!
