In our culture, shaped as it has been by Christianity, the premier innocent victim is and always has been Jesus.
He laid the groundwork; established the archetype.
It’s inconceivable that the Holocaust racket would have been as successful as it has been in a non-Christian culture.

It’s debatable if 20th century European culture was a Christian culture. If it truly was a Christian culture, there never would have been a WW1 nor a WW2. All the Christian rules regarding warfare were thrown out the window in the early 20th century — around the very same time the White Race went Existentialist en-masse.
It’s debatable, was 20th century European culture a Christian culture or a culture based on Existentialism? There’s much to point to 20th century European culture as being an Existentialist culture more than a Christian based culture. [ It’s certainly now an Existentialist culture thru and thru. It didn’t happen overnight.]
Christian culture can take many forms. As in the 20th century, and the 17th, each side fought as righteous Christians, with the support of the respective chaplains and priests of their churches. Had the churches not been supportive, even in Germany, the wars could not have progressed. That is a form of Christian culture. The Soviets in WWII, of course, were committed to a secular version of Christianity, with Communist Party advisors controlling the commanders in the field, fighting for the survival of Communist Man. The Orthodox Church was fully supportive.
The various forms of culture Christians create arise because all Christians are by necessity hypocrites, due to the impracticalities and outright contradictions of Christian doctrine. Jesus, for example, forbids them from resisting evil, but Pharisee Paul commands them to slavishly subject themselves to the secular authorities, “for the powers (or authorities) that be are ordained by God.. He is the minister of God.. he beareth not the sword in vain.”
This inherent difficulty in applying doctrine is why Dostoevsky’s Grand Inquisitor tells Jesus to stop bothering us. You’ve given us enough problems already, the Church is better off now caring for its own.
This brings to mind a comment I left at Age of Treason the other day quoting Manfred Roeder’s explanation for the German acceptance of Holocaust guilt (from the introduction to Thies Christopherson’s ‘Auschwitz Lie‘):
The last time I visited AOT my ol’ friend Tan was still stuck in the belief that Jews corrupted Christianity and this was shared by virtually all commenters. Apparently for them it’s unconceivable that there’s something inherently wrong with our parents’ religion. Have they changed their views? Have they finally conceded that Christianity was anti-white since the times of Saul-Paul (cf. Frost’s posts in this site)?
