How Much Longer

"The chief function of propaganda is to convince the masses, whose slowness of understanding needs to be given time so they may absorb information; and only constant repetition will finally succeed in imprinting an idea on their mind." “Adolph Hitler, Mein Kampf (1925)

I have written often how this administration is very close to a mirror image of the rise to power of Hitler in the 1930’s and have made no apology for such comparisons and make none now. Those who do not know and understand history have no history and will have no history in which they are remembered. Here are just a few more of the comparisons. You read, you decide!

1. Hitler came to power in 1933 on a plurality vote of 43.9% which gave the Nazis the majority of seats in the German Parliament. Through the use of various contrived crises, Hitler managed to consolidate his power by seizing control of the German mainstream media.

Sound vaguely familiar with the exception the current administration gained a slightly larger margin of the vote thanks to groups like ACORN and other assorted thugs at work at the polls and in the community. The many contrived crisis that have been invented by this administration exceeds even those put together under Roosevelt and Johnson. Of course Carter had a few “so called crisis” during his time in which he put the whole eight of the Federal Government to work to solve the crisis. Anyone remember gas lines?

2.All means of communication were monopolized by the government. The media and movies had to show pictures glorifying the Nazi movement and its illustrious leader. The Ministry of Propaganda, Josef Goebbels, had two main tasks.

  • First, to censor anything that might be viewed as harmful to the Nazi Party or its agenda and eliminate the visible opposition.
  • Secondly, to ensure that the Party’s agenda was presented in the most seductive and attractive way possible.

This certainly fits right in with the second task now doesn’t it?

Anita Dunn, White House Communications Director, whose favorite philosopher is Mao, the Chinese-Communist butcher, audaciously targeted Fox News on national television. She slandered the channel's coverage of the presidential campaign, declared it a "wing of the Republican Party," and openly admitted the reason it was dissed by the President last month was its tenacious insistence on reporting stories unflattering to Obama.



3.But before he could eliminate the opposition, he had to first get the man on the street on his side. Those who held the ‘right’ views were rewarded with status and inculcated with a sense of privilege.

When else in history has the media been in the tank with anyone as deep as they are with Obama? When else has an administration attempted to silence all opposition in the media as this administration has done? Even Nixon with his enemies list was a light weight compared to Obama and his gang of thugs.

According to the Huffington Post, "The White House's communications staff announced this week (referring to Oct 5-9) that it was charting out a new, more aggressive strategy, defined largely by a pledge to push back hard against news stories that are either inaccurate or unflattering." Anita Dunn appeared the following Sunday on CNN to fire the first salvo of this stated policy. Of course the Rushbo was was declared by Obama during his own campaign time and immediately after taking office with his comment (I WON and [paraphrased listening to Rush Limbaugh is what creates these problems]

4.Anyone who disagreed with the Reich was demonized as a liar, an agent of the Jews, or a tool of the special interests. Goon squads would show up at opposition rallies and provoke confrontations while the media portrayed the rallies and their participants as “angry mobs.” Tea Party goers beware and Town Hall meetings are in danger. How soon before Acorn goons, Black Panthers under the guise of AmeriCorps.show up? We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded." Barack Obama

5.The Nazis also used the public school system to indoctrinate the next generation of Nazis. Parents who tried to teach their own values were denounced by their children. Politically incorrect views were criminalized. Opposing viewpoints were heavily censored.

How many times in just recent months have we seen children being used to sing the praises of “the One”

Politically incorrect views, especially of the NOCARE Health Bill! What was the reaction? The latest in their attempt to silence the opposition has been to form a website where ordinary citizens are asked to “snitch” on their friends, neighbors and anyone the hear speaking in opposition. The administration directs their appeal to those who are most likely to overhear and report such, the youth but of course the old folks at the nursing home are eligible to snitch as well.

To ensure that everybody thought in the correct manner, Goebbels set up the Reich Chamber of Commerce in 1933. This organization dealt with literature, art, music, radio, film, newspapers e tc. To produce anything that was in these groups, you had to be a member of the Reich Chamber.

If you are not a member of the ruling party in Congress then you are outside the loop and your input on anything of importance is not needed. No matter that you are an elected representative of the people, shut up, I WON!. How much longer before we see the enemies list (I am sure it already exist but when will actions be taken against those on that list)

The Nazi Party decided if you had the right credentials to be a member. Any person who was not credentialed was not allowed to have any work published or performed.

In this administration if you are not totally for anything that “the One” puts forth then you should be silenced just as members of congress and certain members of the media have been from the campaign days to present.

The aim of censorship under the Nazi regime was simple: to reinforce Nazi power and to suppress opposing viewpoints and information. Punishments ranged from banning of presentation and publishing of works at first; then later, deportation, imprisonment and even execution.

At this point it is basically attempts to ban those who have opposing viewpoint and the so called “Fairness Act” is just another step in doing such. When will dissidents be locked away or even executed? Remember the poem, At first the came for…….. Can we now say Rush, Fox News, James Wilson, Hannity etal.

This open marginalizing of independent news and opinion broadcasters is not by accident, but by design and rests solidly at the feet of the President. Dunn made it big in the news again this week for her declarations that Obama had controlled the media during the campaign. But this control of the media thing only works if one controls all the media and that indeed is the goal of this administration and it’s handful of well chosen propagandist.

The comparison is chilling to say the least but many will attempt to marginalize me as one of the folks on the right who see the boogyman in every shadow. I will answer, no the boogyman is no longer in the shadows but few have taken off the dark glasses long enough to see just where he is standing.

This administration is marginalizing all opposition to it’s agenda while ignoring Iran and it’s nuclear expansion,it’s threat to Israel while marginalizing Israel and those who would support that country.It ignores North Korea and it’s constant threat to South Korea, Taiwan and Japan. It heaps praise on Chevez and Castro while dallying around with sending troops to support an onging war against terrorist but making appearances in NY to praise (really I actually didn’t hear any real praise except of himself) and make himself look good while marginalizing the real issue at hand and that being that Muslims are in this country and are a threat to the safety and well being of it’s citizens. If fails to make “the One” appear as a strong leader it will be marginalized. How long before he and this administration marginalize this country out of existence?

****I will be taking a break after posting this. The loss of a dear friend, mentor and former pastor has left me with little will to write. At this point I can only seem to concentrate on asking the question, WHY and to this point I have yet to receive an answer.

Maybe we should stop comparing Obama to Hitler.

At least Hitler got the Olympics to come to Berlin. (lol)

Ticker, Being a Boogeyman-seer is a good thing these days. We must watch the shadows AND the complete darkness because that is where everything is happening.

When he devalues our dollar in the coming near future we will have reached the status you refer to:

marginalize this country out of existence?

Take a break and mourn your friend. These losses are hard to take. Give yourself some time and then come back and "give them what for."

Blessings Ticker.

I concur with Maggie, take time to grieve, for that is the hardest work we do. LIVE as a tribute to those you've lost and that is the greatest gift we can give their memory.

We'll be here when you get back my friend.

Sue said...

I read this post with chills running up my spine. You have truly summed up what is going on...and what did go on in the 30s is so frighteningly similiar...

I am sorry to hear about your loss. I can hear your pain...
Praying God will draw you near and give you peace.

The similarities between the BHO administration and the Third Reich should be obvious to any thinking person. However, some people don't have anything to think with!

only constant repetition will finally succeed in imprinting an idea on their mind." “Adolph Hitler, Mein Kampf (1925)

We're seeing this play out right now before our very eyes!

I have a similar question to answer with the situation Mr. AOW is in right now.

You have my sympathies on the loss of your dear friend, Ticker.

Am taking this post to my readers D. I don't understand how anyone can still stand behind Obama and the Democrats. I really don't.

Losing a friend is so very hard. It seems to be a part of aging as those we know and love best leave us one by one. So take time to say goodby and to cry, but also to remember the wonderful things you loved about this man. Celebrate his life as you morn his death. BB

Ticker said...

Thank all of you for you kind words of comfort. My dear friend, mentor and former Pastor was a young man of 45 years of age with a brilliant future ahead of him. His newest church plant of one year old had grown from a handful to over 450 in that short time.
His wonderful wife and precious little 12 year old daughter will certainly miss him and at this point stand in need of your prayers for strength and comfort.

Ticker.

Ticker - how devastating for this young family. I will keep them in my prayers. I know his church family will be a rock for them.
