Jean Mamy’s Anti-Masonic Propaganda Film, “Forces occultes” (1943)

Jean Mamy’s “Forces occultes claimed to unveil the mysteries of Freemasonry.

1942, the French were occupied under Germany during the rule of the National Socialist Party. The Propaganda Abteilung delegation of Germany’s propaganda ministry by ex-mason Jean Mamy (known by the pseudonym Paul Riche), commissioned the film Forces occultes (Occult ForcesThe mysteries of Freemasonry unveiled for the first time on the screen), which unapologetically denounces Freemasonry as apart of a Jewish-Mason conspiracy. It was written by Jean Marquès-Rivière, and produced by Robert Muzard, who were both condemned to punishments 25 November 1945 for their collaboration, under liberated France. The dishonest propaganda film details a young député, who learns the Masons are conspiring with the Jews and the Anglo-American nations to get France into a war with Germany.

The Ariosophists and völkisch ideologues were, and remain our enemy. We will never apologize for opposing it. Guido von List’s vision and the ghost and soul of the Fürher still possesses a sector of Europeans of neo-völkisch leanings. The National Socialist vision was a new mythos of the blood, and “preservationism of the godly essence of the Teuton,” they newly termed the “Aryan”; with Mussolini later adopting the theory for Italians.

God created the Germans, according to minister Goebbels in his appeal to Christian Germany.

The Duce says with great confidence!

“Let us not forget that the Masons of Italy have always represented a distortion, not only in political life, but in spiritual concepts. All the strength of Masonry was directed against the papal policies, but this struggle represented no real and profound ideal. The secret society from a practical point of view rested on an association of mutual adulation, of reciprocal aid, of pernicious nepotism and favoritism. To become powerful and to consummate its underhanded dealings, Masonry made use of the weaknesses of the Liberal governments that succeeded each other in Italy after 1870 to extend its machinations in the bureaucracy, in the magistracy, in the field of education, and also in the army, so that it could dominate the vital ganglions of the whole nation. Its secret character throughout the twentieth century, its mysterious meetings, abhorrent to our beautiful communities with their sunlight and their love of truth, gave to the sect the character of corruption, a crooked concept of life, without programme, without soul, without moral value.

My antipathy for that disgusting form of secret association goes back to my youth. Long before, at the Socialist congress of Ancona in 1914, I had presented to my comrades the dilemma: Socialists or Masons? That point of view had won a complete triumph, in spite of the strong opposition of the Mason-socialists.

Later, in Fascism, I made the same gesture of strength. It took courage. I obeyed the positive command of my conscience, and not any opportunism. My attitude had nothing in common with the anti-Masonic spirit of the Jesuits. They acted for reasons of defense. After all, their inner organization as a religious society is almost completely unknown.

For my direct, methodical and consistent course of policy the hate of the Masonic sect persecutes me even now. Masonry of that type has been beaten in Italy, but it operates and conspires behind mask of the international anti-Fascism. It utterly fails to defeat me. It tries to throw mud at me, but the insult does not reach its mark. It machinates plots and crimes, but the hired assassins do not control my destiny. It goes gossiping about my weaknesses, and the supposed organic afflictions of my body, but I am more alive and stronger than ever.

This is a war without quarter, a war of which I am a veteran. Every time that I have wanted to cauterize difficult situations in Kalian political life, every time that I have wanted to give a sincere, frank and loyal moral rectitude to the personnel in politics, I have always had against me our Masonry! But that organization, which in other times was very powerful, has been beaten by me. Against me it did not and cannot win. Italians won this battle for me. They found the cure for this leprosy.

To-day in Italy we breathe the open air; life is exposed to the light of day.” (Benito Mussolini, My Autobiography, 1928)
