Kim Dotcom: Owns rare copy of Mein Kampf, a Nazi flag & loves Adolf Hitler [AUDIO]

Brook Sabin and Patrick Gower on 3News have broken the story that Kim Dotcom owns a copy of Adolf Hitler’s treatise ‘Mein Kampf’. Dotcom has admitted to owning the book and so that is not in dispute. He also claims he has no Nazi sympathies. That is about to be dispelled.

This story on 3News is coincidentally parallel to our own investigations.

In an exclusive WOBH investigation we can reveal yet another missing chapter in the secret life of Kim Dotcom and provide deeper details about Kim Dotcom and his love for Adolf Hitler.

On May 21 2011 Alex Mardikian sat down for breakfast with Kim Dotcom in Spain.

After his flight from the US via London he was tired but little did he know that his world was about to be shaken by the internet shyster.

On the table with the usual continental breakfast foods was also a book and Dotcom sat beaming, animated, excited to show something to Mardikian. He was awe-struck by the book. Mardikian says he was clearly on a power trip over owning this book.

Dotcom reached across the table and presented a book. It was an old book, and upon opening it Mardikian was shocked and surprised to find that the book was Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler.

This was not any ordinary copy though, it was a limited edition of the book, personally signed by Adolf Hitler and dedicated to one of the founders of the Nazi party who was incarcerated with Adolf Hitler. The book is dated Christmas Eve 1925 and dedicated to Hermann Esser, who was one of the founders of the Nazi party and also in prison for his part in the Munich Beer Hall Putsch in 1923.

Dotcom was excited, he had only recently bought the book for  £21,600 through an intermediary bidding through Mullocks auctioneers who handled the sale. 

At the time Richard Westwood Brookes, of Mullocks auctioneers, said: ‘This is probably the rarest ever edition of Mein Kampf ever to be offered at auction. It is one of 20 – you can’t get much rarer than that.

‘It is signed by Hitler, which makes it an even rarer version of the first edition.

‘The unsigned copies of the 1925 edition make thousands in their own right because they are so rare but this one is one of a very small group within the 500 that were produced.

‘The first edition in 1925 carries the 1925 imprint on it.’

Dotcom asked what Mardikian thought about the fact he now owned a book written by “the greatest German who has ever lived”.

Mardikian was now faced with a dilemma. He had only a short association so far with Dotcom, was working with him on many projects and now he was presented with a book that he despised. Did he risk his future by arguing with the internet mogul? With Kim Dotcom you either agree wholeheartedly or you say nothing, Mardikian said nothing such was his disgust at what he had seen.

Mardikian is Armenian by descent, but was raised by a German step-father, who made the young nine year old Mardikian sit down and read Mein Kampf so he could learn of the “struggle”.

Mardikian says this was one of things that changed his life. So much so he no longer communicates with his step-father.

“Like parents feeding kids brussels sprouts and okra it turns them off the vegetables for ever” he said.

“That was how I felt as an Armenian, people persecuted by the Nazis, being forced to read and memorise this book by a man I and my countrymen despised”.

On top of that Mardikian was married to a woman of Jewish descent and his son is half-Jewish. This was shocking to him.

This statement by Mardikian puts the book in Dotcom’s hands as the owner. He used an intermediary to buy the book and store the book, and when he got wind that this story was going to break he also demanded that another intermediary take the fall for it. Kim Dotcom is never one to suffer the consequences of his own actions.

Dotcom’s closest confidantes implored him not to buy the book, that no good could come of owning a book written by one of the most despised men in world history.

Dotcom stated to many people, including Mardikian, that he bought the book because he idolises Adolf Hitler, rather than because it was simply a historic book.

Mardikian then witnessed a couple of weeks later, along with editors, and camera crews and many others a truly shocking incident on a private beach in Europe. This incident was recorded and copies exist in a number of locations. Mardikian says the incident confirmed in his mind that he was working for someone who harboured Nazi tendencies and sympathies.

Listen to Mardikian’s comments, about why he is bothered by these incident:

Further investigations by WOBH have revealed that not only does Kim Dotcom own a signed and autographed copy of Mein Kampf, one of the rarest copies on the market, but he also possesses other Nazi memorabilia.

One item is a Nazi flag, that until recently was displayed in the cellar of his mansion at Coatesville.

The flag was given to him on his birthday in 2011 by one of his guests at his birthday party.

At the time of the birthday and the gift Kim Dotcom exclaimed to all in attendance that this was “the best present he had ever been given”.

He profusely thanked the guest repeating over and over how happy he was to have received the flag. Again his closest confidantes remonstrated with Dotcom over the flag and he shrugged off the criticism by claiming it was all a big joke.

WOBH can confirm that the flag is still in the possession of Dotcom because in the days after the raids two staff were tidying up ahead of the arrival of John Campbell and his cameras. They were going to tour the mansion for a soft piece on the aftermath of the raid.

Those two staff thought, rightly, that the flag wouldn’t look good on television and so folded it up and put it away for safe keeping in some boxes also stored in the cellar.

One former staff member spoken to by WOBH (who wishes to remain anonymous due to ongoing threats from Dotcom) in our ongoing investigations of the REAL secret life of Kim Dotcom has told us that regularly, at dinner, Nazi salutes would be made and Nazi chants like “Heil Hitler”  and “Sieg Heil” were made, especially if the guests were mainly German.

When you add all this up you get the over-riding impression that Kim Dotcom harbours nazi sympathies, and has a German superiority complex. You certainly get this impression clearly with his little history lesson of how great the Germans were in history as told to his wife Mona Dotcom.

Another former staff member (again they have requested protection due to threats against their family by Dotcom) told WOBH that “Kim is a big fan of Hitler, he loves him and thinks he is the greatest German ever to have lived”.

There can be no other reason to buy one of the rarest of all copies of Mein Kampf and delightedly show it off to people. Why would you celebrate being given a nazi flag for your birthday and why else would you make nazi salutes and chants in front of staff, unless you were a subscriber to Hitler’s disgusting nazi political beliefs. This is n’t just an act of a collector wanting a copy of Mein Kampf, it is about the subscription tot he beliefs contained with in the book and the beliefs of the author.

You would only do that if you harboured pride, admiration and the beliefs in one of the most evil regimes to ever plunge the world into conflict.

The fact that many Kiwi soldiers died fighting that regime to free the world of racism, anti-Semitism and Nazism has obviously passed Dotcom by as he seeks to enter New Zealand politics.

One can only wonder what Kiwi voters will think when they find out more of the REAL secret life of Kim Dotcom, essentially the missing chapters of his life that David Fisher failed to discover or write about. Ahead of the launch of the Internet party we think this vital information is important for voters to know.

On the surface though it is probably appropriate that Kim Dotcom’s nascent Internet party is talking with the Mana party. Adolf Hitler was a racist and a nationalist, so is Hone Harawira, albeit a Maori nationalist. Kim Dotcom as a fan of Hitler probably sees some synergies in coalescing with a racist and a nationalist in New Zealand too.

Perhaps Dotcom’s abiding hatred for John Key can be put down to the fact that John Key is of jewish descent. Perhaps too this is why he seeks to go to war with Hollywood, which conspiracy theorists will have you know is controlled by the Jews.

More will be revealed in coming weeks as we seek to expose the REAL secret life of Kim Dotcom.
