Paul Schaefer, Nazi Preacher Who Led Torture Cult In Chile, Dies

ARGENTINA-SCHAEFERDead at 89, Paul Schaefer sounds like a monster out of a horror movie, but he was terrifyingly real. Strangest detail: “He had a glass eye, having accidentally gouged out his right eye while trying to untie a shoelace knot with a fork.” The Washington Post reports:

Paul Schaefer, 89, a German-born evangelical preacher who was convicted of sexually abusing 25 children while leading one of the world’s most notorious anti-Semitic and apocalyptic sects, died April 24 of a heart ailment at a prison hospital in Chile.

His enclave in southern Chile, Colonia Dignidad…doubled during the 1970s and ’80s as a detention and torture center for opponents of right-wing dictator Gen. Augusto Pinochet.

At the time of his death, Mr. Schaefer was still under investigation in the 1985 disappearance of mathematician Boris Weisfeiler, an American citizen who went missing while hiking near Colonia Dignidad.

Mr. Schaefer turned to preaching after serving in the German military during World War II. He traveled the German countryside with an acoustic guitar and a message of salvation through sexual abstinence. Armed with powerful charisma and a gift for public speaking, he collected hundreds of followers before eventually establishing an orphanage near Bonn.

Accused of molesting two boys at the orphanage, he fled to Chile in 1961 and started his commune on a picturesque ranch 225 miles south of Santiago. The enclave boasted its own landing strip, television station and power plant, as well as lumber, honey and brick-making businesses. Mr. Schaefer built a school and a hospital, winning over some local citizens by offering them free education and health care.

However, Colonia Dignidad’s darker side soon emerged. Former members of the sect told reporters and Chilean and German officials of Mr. Schaefer’s unsavory tendencies. He was always accompanied by a handpicked coterie of boys who ran his errands, brushed his hair and tied his shoes. He maintained total control over the lives of his followers, the former members said, forbidding contact with the outside world and using electric shocks and tranquilizers to punish those who broke his rules.

Babies were taken from their mothers at birth and raised in a communal nursery. All adults were known as “uncle” or “aunt”; Mr. Schaefer was called “permanent uncle.”

Mr. Schaefer avoided arrest for decades, largely because of his close relationships with political and military leaders — including Pinochet, who was brought to power by a 1973 coup d’etat. Thousands of political dissidents disappeared or were killed during Pinochet’s rule, and human rights groups say that many were taken to Colonia Dignidad, or Dignity Colony, where they were tortured in underground chambers.

    Anybody else see Adam Sandler's movie “Little Nicky”?

    I'm thinking this Schaefer guy is now getting “the pineapple treatment” right alongside Herr Hitler. And he will have earned it, frankly.

    One wonders what will be in store for men like Mr. Kissinger who supported the Pinochet regime all those years while disgusting crap like this was going on…..

    Good work putting Pinochet in power CIA. The Chileans couldn't be trusted with their land and by gosh you cant trust them to let cunt-bag pedophiles go unpunished.

    Don't forget pope john paul II …he turned a blind eye to the human rights accusations because Pinochet was a devout catholic…

    Ugh, i just hate germans in Chile, have you watched the film white ribbon? it is very common too see fathers raping their daughters. There was a huge emigration in 1840-1860 from germans to Chile, They all arrived in the south of the country, Chilean presidents wanted to fill the south with people working farms and that poor stuff, so they initiated a process with germans in Chile to invite more germans such like, painters, ironmongers, i dont know, but poor germans. An example of the germans in Chile is this Colonia Dignidad, a town where only former germans live. I lived in the south, a city called Osorno, a place full of germans, i remember that my father (medical inspector) visited a lot of german doctors, he never had problems with them, but once he told me that a lot of times he found nazi stuff on their homes, one time he found a giant Adolf Hitlers picture lol.

    Remarkable how you Obama loving MEDIA are able to write so casually about this guy; with almost no real truth, He was MUCH MUCH MUCH worse than they’ll/you’ll say.Guaranteed if he were a right winger we’d be hearing ALL the gruesome details.
