The issues that he prompted for party propaganda incorporated antisemitism, criticisms on the Christian churches, and trying to shape spirits after World War 2 commenced. He generated a breeding ground of anxiety and hate, promoting along with engaging in abuse. All through the war, he tried to help keep morale higher, particularly when the war began to move against the country.

His enemies did like to draw a link involving the foot disability and the cloven hoof as well as limp which the Devil was purported to have.
