The Great Replacement, Part 8: Earnest Hooton and the Ethnic Cleansing of the Germans

Earnest Albert Hooton

Welcome to part 8 of our ‘The Great Replacement’ series where we are investigating the planned and operational genocide of native Europeans. In this article, we will be focusing on the ideas of Earnest Albert Hooton and his post-World War 2 bid to breed ethnic Germans out of existence.

If you’ve missed any previous articles in this series, you can go back to part 1: here.


An Introduction to Earnest Albert Hooton

Earnest Albert Hooton was a Jewish-American physical anthropologist who specialised in the connections between behaviour and race. He was born in Wisconsin in 1887 and it was there that he received his MA in 1908 and his Ph.D. in 1911. Following this, he moved to England where he studied at Oxford University before returning to the United States where he taught at Harvard University until his death in 1954.

There are many disagreements regarding whether Hooton helped or hindered racial stereotypes. Although Hooton was one of the first people who attempted to develop methodical criteria for race typology, Hooton’s Wikipedia page contains a number of fabrications which have been attributed to the American Anthropological Association. The fabrications, which discuss Hooton making connections between African babies and young apes, have been debunked by a number of academics. Hooton did, however, readily discuss the perception of a “superior, all-round athletic ability” in black males. Despite this observation, Hooton publicly disputed any racial perceptions which were promoted by the National Socialist German Workers’ Party during Adolf Hitler’s reign.

Those who know of Hooton will be familiar with the fact that a number of academics refer to him as a racist. Perhaps we should listen to African American newspaper columnist, Leonard Pitts Jr., who, in 2010, warned against buying into “…the silly contention that talking about race is, of itself, racist.”

Unfortunately today, we live in an era where everything is “racist”. Although the Enemies of Free Speech would like us to believe that quoting scientifically backed-up evidence about racial trends is racist, they’re wrong, and it isn’t. It’s simply speaking the truth. Nevertheless, even the most radical college liberal would struggle to defend Hooton’s actual prejudice, as the Hooton Plan, which we will detail below, actively called for the genocide of an entire ethnic group: the Germans.

Interesting Fact

Hooton was one of the contributors towards UNESCO’s The Race Question statement; a 1950’s document which, following on from the rise of National Socialism in World War 2, aimed to clarify what was known about race in order to define the boundaries of racism. Other contributors included: Jewish sociologist: Morris Ginsberg, Jewish psychologist: Otto Klineberg, Jewish anthropologist: Claude Lévi-Strauss, Jewish anthropologist: Ashley Montagu, Jewish physician: Gunnar Dahlberg,  Jewish geneticist: Hermann Joseph Muller and Jewish geneticist: Curt Stern.

I’m sure this is just a coincidence.

The Hooton Plan

We all know the narrative of World War 2. We’re taught that 6 million Jews were gassed because Hitler wanted to create a master race of blonde haired, blue eyed Aryans and that the “Nazis” were all evil sociopaths who resembled Ralph Fiennes’s character in Schindler’s List. Well following on from the end of World War 2, this information was reported in the media, and not just in the newspapers, but through Hollywood as well. Ideas began circulating regarding what should be done about the Germans. They were all clearly monsters, and these monsters had to be taken care of.

One of these ideas, which we won’t cover in too much detail in this article but it’s certainly worth mentioning, is that of Jewish-American businessman, Theodore Newman Kaufman. In 1941, Kaufman wrote a self-published, 104-page book titled Germany Must Perish! In this book, Kaufman called for the sterilisation of Germans and the territorial dismemberment of their country. Kaufman wrote:

I believe that the Jews have a mission in life. They must see to it that the nations of the world get together in one vast federation. “Union Now” is the beginning of this. Slowly but surely the world will develop into a paradise. We will have perpetual peace. And the Jews will do the most to bring about this confederation, because they have the most to gain. But how can you get peace if Germany exists? The only way to win an eternal peace is to make the punishment of waging war more horrible than war itself. Human beings are penalised for murder, aren’t they? Well, Germany starts all the wars of magnitude. Let us sterilise all Germans and wars of world domination will come to an end!


Kaufman’s book actually achieved little other than giving Hitler, Goebbels and the National Socialists ammunition to use in the their bid to convince the population of Jewish meddling.



In 1943, Hooton published an article titled “Breed War Strain Out of Germans” in New York newspaper PM. The newspaper’s issue included a front page which boasted the headline: “What Are We Going to Do With the Germans?” In the newspaper, four contributors including Hooton, and also including Dorothy Thompson, Frans Boaz and Albert Einstein, put forward their suggestions on how to “deal with” German nationalism. Their suggestions included headings such as:

  • “Should We Kill the Germans – Or Save Them?”
  • “Insane Asylum for Nazi Leaders”
  • “Break Germany’s Industrial Power”

Hooton Newspaper

The main piece which Hooton contributed to. It proposed a number of violent and inhumane ways to handle ordinary German citizens.


In his article, Hooton proposed four measures. His overall objective was to: “Destroy German nationalism and aggressive ideology while retaining and perpetuating desirable German biological and sociological capacities.”

Hooton’s four proposed measures were as follows:


Measure 1

Execute or imprison for life all leaders of the Nazi party; permanently exile all professional army officers.

Measure 2

For a period of 20 years or more utilise the bulk of the present German army as rehabilitation labour units in devastated areas of the Allied Nations in Europe and elsewhere. These labourers should not be treated as prisoners of war or convicts but as paid employees (supervised and restricted as to movement from the area of their work). They might be allowed the privilege of naturalisation upon evidence of good behaviour. The single men should be permitted to marry only women of the country of their abode or naturalisation. The families of the men already married should remain in Germany for a period of years, but might eventually be permitted to join the fathers. The latter should not be allowed to return to Germany. The objects of this measure include reduction of the birth rate of “pure” Germans, neutralisation of German aggressiveness by outbreeding, and denationalisation of indoctrinated individuals.

Measure 3

Break up the German Reich into several states (probably its original component states), permitting each, after a suitable interval of supervision and government by the Allied Nations, to choose its own form of non-Fascist government. The object of this measure is to destroy the national framework of unified German aggression.

Measure 4

During the period of supervision and occupation of the several states by armies and civilian staffs of the Allied Nations, encourage members of these groups to intermarry with the German women and to settle there permanently. During this period encourage also the immigration and settlement in the German states of non-German nationals, especially males.


To summarise, Hooton encouraged the immigration and settlement of non-German men into Germany who would then be encouraged to mate with German women. 10-12 million German men, on the other hand, would be assigned to forced labour under Allied supervision outside of Germany and would only be permitted to marry non-Germans. Hooton also encouraged that Germany be broken up into several separate states, which out of interest, is an idea that Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi also promoted (also think present-day Catalonia). Does all this sound familiar? It should.


As a side note, it wouldn’t be fair of me to mention German labour camps without mentioning the events of the Rheinwiesenlager (Rhine-Meadows Death Camps/Eisenhower’s Death Camps). This reality was, arguably, a much more brutal fate for the Germans than anything that Hooton could ever have envisaged. Wikipedia will tell you that only 3000 – 10,000 Germans were killed in these camps between April – September 1945, but I urge you to do your own research.


Germany Today

Anybody who has been keeping an eye on the demographics of Germany today will know that Hooton’s plan is all but fully realised. In actual fact, although Germany experienced a huge influx of immigration from Turkey during their ‘Gastarbeiter’ (‘Guest Workers’) scheme following World War 2, the majority of immigration to Germany in recent years has been from Muslim countries in North Africa and Asia. Some may argue that even Hooton didn’t promote such an idea, as he pushed more for Allied involvement in German relationships.

In present day Germany, around 1 in 5 people are either of foreign nationality or they have a migrant background. It was reported in 2016, that one in three people under the age of 18 in Germany have foreign roots; a figure which jumps up to 36% if we look at under 5s. This is a huge difference compared to Germany’s demographics prior to World War 2 when there were very few ethnic minorities in the country. If you read part 3 of our ‘The Great Replacement’ series (which focuses on Germany), you’ll see that immigration has been readily encouraged over the last few decades and that new records are consistently being broken regarding the number of new arrivals.

Immigration surely plays a huge factor The Great Replacement, but we also shouldn’t downplay the fact that Muslim families from North Africa and Asia have many more children than European families do. The current fertility rate in Germany is around 1.5, which is well below the recommended fertility rate of 2.1 which is required for a Western population to stay the same size.

Looking at the above figures, one may argue that Hooton was triumphant in his bid to “breed the war strains” out of Germans as the ethnic make-up of Germany, not unlike many other European countries, is in the process of being watered down as the days roll by.

But what about miscegenation? Is this, as was once encouraged by Hooton, also encouraged in present day Germany? In actual fact, it’s encouraged across the continent. More of this will be detailed in our next and final article in this series where we’ll look at the following topics:

  • Replacement Migration at the United Nations
  • Replacement Migration at the European Union
  • An overview of the ethnic make-up of Europe today, by country
  • Anti-White Cultural Marxism in politics, the media and education
  • An overview of the devastating effects that mass, open-door immigration is having on Europe
  • Thoughts for the future
