Jose Vasconcelos developed a cultural and racial supremacy doctrine for the hispanic mixed race (mestizos), documented in his book “La Raza Cosmica”. This supremacy doctrine has been appropriated by the Chicano political movement in the United States.
The Protocols of the Elders of Zion was a notorious, anti semitic conspiracy pamphlet, which was used by the Nazis to justify their pogroms against Jews. Vasconcelos defends the pamphlet and concludes that the Jews deserved what they were getting.
This article has been translated and posted not to promote hate, but to show the darker side of Jose Vasconcelos, who was a very influential philosopher, politician and educator in Mexico.
In 1940, Vasconcelos was editor of a pro-Nazi magazine, entitled Timon. Itzhak Bar-Lewaw wrote about this magazine in his book, “La Revista Timon y Jose Vasconcelos”, which was written in Spanish, has been out of print for many years and is not readily available to the public. This translation to English is being posted in order to make some of his pro-Nazi sentiments more accessible.
