25 Signs That The Nazification Of America Is Almost Complete
Right Side News ^ | 2/19/2012 | Staff

Posted on 02/19/2012 5:36:22 AM PST by IbJensen

The United States of America is becoming more like Nazi Germany every single day. In fact, the Nazification of America is almost complete.

The parallels between Nazi Germany and the United States of today are going to absolutely shock many of you. Most Americans simply have never learned what life was really like back in Nazi Germany.

Under Adolf Hitler, Germany was a Big Brother totalitarian police state that ruthlessly repressed freedom and individual liberty. Under Adolf Hitler, Germany adopted socialism, dramatically increased government spending and raised taxes to astronomical levels. Under Adolf Hitler, abortion became legal in Germany, the government took over health care and Christianity was pushed out of the public schools and out of public life.

To prove all of these points, I am going to use extensive quotes from two sources. Kitty Werthmann was a child living a peaceful life in Austria when Hitler took over her nation. Her eyewitness accounts about what life was like under Nazi Germany are invaluable. In addition, I will also be quoting extensively from author Bruce Walker. He is the author of a book entitled "The Swastika Against The Cross: The Nazi War On Christianity", and during his years of research he has uncovered some absolutely jaw dropping stuff. After reading the information in the rest of this article, there should be no doubt that the United States is becoming just like Nazi Germany.

Nazi Germany shows us what happens when the state becomes god. Adolf Hitler was certainly more racist than the leaders of America are today, but other than that there are very few differences between the road that Adolf Hitler led Germany down and the path that the United States is being led down.

The following are 25 signs that the Nazification of America is almost complete....

#1 Nazi Germany was a totalitarian Big Brother police state that constantly monitored everything that German citizens did.

Today, the bureaucrats that run things in the United States are also absolutely obsessed with constantly trying to monitor us. For example, there are now control freaks that inspect the lunches of preschool students in certain areas of the country in order to make sure that they contain the "right" foods....

A preschooler at West Hoke Elementary School ate three chicken nuggets for lunch Jan. 30 because the school told her the lunch her mother packed was not nutritious.

The girl’s turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips, and apple juice did not meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines, according to the interpretation of the person who was inspecting all lunch boxes in the More at Four classroom that day.

The Division of Child Development and Early Education at the Department of Health and Human Services requires all lunches served in pre-kindergarten programs - including in-home day care centers - to meet USDA guidelines. That means lunches must consist of one serving of meat, one serving of milk, one serving of grain, and two servings of fruit or vegetables, even if the lunches are brought from home.

#2 Nazi officials often used their positions of power to force others to do dehumanizing things.

This is exactly what the TSA is doing today. It would be really easy to imagine some Nazi military officers forcing a young woman to walk back and forth in front of them several times so that they could admire her form. Well, that is what TSA agents are doing to American women today. The following comes froma recent Wired article....

TSA agents in Dallas singled out female passengers to undergo screening in a body scanner, according to complaints filed by several women who said they felt the screeners intentionally targeted them to view their bodies.

One woman who flew out of Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport several months ago said a female agent sent her through a body scanner three times after the agent commented on her “cute” body.

#3 In Nazi Germany, even women and children were treated like dehumanized cattle.

Well, today schoolchildren are being strip-searched all over the United States. Down in Georgia, one student was recently strip-searched by public school officials after another student falsely accused him of having marijuana.

Another student down in Albuquerque was recently forced to strip down to his underwear while five adults watched because he had $200 in his pocket. The student was never formally charged with doing anything wrong.

#4 In Nazi Germany, authorities could stop you and search you at any time and for any reason.

In America that is not supposed to happen, but it is happening. Last year, TSA "VIPR teams" conducted approximately 8,000 "unannounced security screenings" at subway stations, bus terminals, seaports and highway rest stops.

If you are not able to produce "your papers", there is a good chance that you will get thrown into prison in America. For example, a 21-year-old college student named Samantha Zucker was recently arrested and put in a New York City jail for 36 hours just because she could not produce any identification for police.

#5 Under Adolf Hitler, there were massive increases in government spending.

According to eyewitness Kitty Werthmann, just about everyone was getting some sort of a handout from the German government....

Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a household. We had big programs for families. All day care and education were free. High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was subsidized. Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing.

Of course, as I have written about so many times before, this isthe exact same thing that we are seeing in the United States today.

#6 Under Hitler, taxes were raised dramatically in order to pay for all of these social programs.

Kitty Werthmann says that "our tax rates went up to 80% of our income."

In the United States our tax rates have not gotten that bad yet, but when you total up all federal taxes, all state taxes, all local taxes, all property taxes and all sales taxes, there are a significant number of Americans that do pay more than 50% of their incomes in taxes.

#7 The economy of Nazi Germany was very highly socialized.

As Ludwig Von Mises once correctly observed, the German economy under Hitler was not capitalist at all....

What Mises identified was that private ownership of the means of production existed in name only under the Nazis and that the actual substance of ownership of the means of production resided in the German government. For it was the German government and not the nominal private owners that exercised all of the substantive powers of ownership: it, not the nominal private owners, decided what was to be produced, in what quantity, by what methods, and to whom it was to be distributed, as well as what prices would be charged and what wages would be paid, and what dividends or other income the nominal private owners would be permitted to receive. The position of the alleged private owners, Mises showed, was reduced essentially to that of government pensioners.

The United States has not gotten to the level of Nazi Germany yet, but we do have a socialist president and back in 2009 the cover of Newsweek boldly proclaimed that "We Are All Socialists Now".

#8 In Nazi Germany, if you conducted business outside of the socialist paradigm you were heavily punished.

Well, the same thing is happening in the United States today. For example, the FDA has been running elaborate entrapment schemes that are designed to entrap producers of raw milk. Any "unauthorized commerce" is dealt with very strictly by the U.S. government these days.

#9 In Nazi Germany, government regulation of business got wildly out of control.

The following is eyewitness testimony from Kitty Werthmann....

My brother-in-law owned a restaurant that had square tables. Government officials told him he had to replace them with round tables because people might bump themselves on the corners. Then they said he had to have additional bathroom facilities. It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar. He couldn't meet all the demands. Soon, he went out of business.

If the government owned the large businesses and not many small ones existed, it could be in control.

We had consumer protection. We were told how to shop and what to buy. Free enterprise was essentially abolished. We had a planning agency specially designed for farmers. The agents would go to the farms, count the live-stock, then tell the farmers what to produce, and how to produce it.

Of course we all know about all of the ridiculous regulationsthat the U.S. government is burdening businesses with today. In every day and age control freaks love to stick it to business people that are just trying to make a living.

#10 Under Hitler, free market capitalism was absolutely hated.

National Socialist theologian Gregor Strasser once stated the following....

We National Socialists are enemies, deadly enemies, of the present capitalist system with its exploitation of the economically weak … and we are resolved under all circumstances to destroy this system.

And as I have written about previously, a lot of Barack Obama's strongest supporters are socialists and communists, and an increasing number of Americans are showing disdain for capitalism. In fact, some recent polls show that young adults in America actually have a more favorable view of socialism than they do of capitalism.

#11 In Nazi Germany, the health care system was taken over by the government.

The following is more eyewitness testimony from Kitty Werthmann....

Before Hitler, we had very good medical care. Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna . After Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything. When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full. If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn. There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine. Research at the medical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and emigrated to other countries.

Of course we all know what is going on in America today. The government spends nearly half of all health care dollars and Obamacare is going to mean more government control over the health care system than ever before.

#12 Under Adolf Hitler, abortion was made "safe and legal" in Germany.

It turns out that Hitler was a huge fan of the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger. And as I wrote about recently, it was Sanger that once said the following....

"The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."

Hitler echoed this sentiment when he wrote the following in Mein Kampf....

"The demand that defective people be prevented from propagating equally defective offspring. . . represents the most humane act of mankind."

After the Nazis came to power in 1933, abortion was very quickly legalized. By 1935 there were approximately 500,000 abortions being performed in Germany every single year.

Yes, Hitler very much encouraged Aryan women to have as many children as possible. But he also very much viewed abortion as a way to reduce "undesirable" populations.

Unfortunately, something very similar is happening today. Abortion clinics are often located in the "poor" part of town, and a staggering 72 percent of Planned Parenthood's "customers" have incomes that are either equal to or beneath 150 percent of the federal poverty level.

#13 In Nazi Germany, killing the "defective", the "weak" and the "disabled" was considered to be a good thing because it made the German people "stronger".

Unfortunately, many in America today have fully embraced the eugenics principles which were so dominant in Nazi Germany.

A 3 year old girl named Amelia was recently denied a kidney transplant because she is considered to be "mentally retarded", and we all remember what happened to Terri Schiavo.

Not only that, the editorial page editor of the Detroit News recently proposed putting contraceptives into the drinking water in Michigan because the state has become a "breeding ground for poverty".

This kind of sick thinking is rapidly spreading in America, and that is a very frightening thing.

#14 In Nazi Germany, education was nationalized and God was kicked out of the schools.

The following is more eyewitness testimony from Kitty Werthmann....

Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good public school. The population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my schoolroom to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler's picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn't pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles, and had physical education.

Unfortunately, the exact same thing is happening to U.S. public schools.

#15 Under Adolf Hitler, God was mocked and religion was pushed out of every corner of public life.

Just check out the following information uncovered by author Bruce Walker....

The Nazi tract Gott und Volk was distributed in 1941, and it describes the life cycle of German youth in the future, who would: “With parties and gifts the youth will be led painlessly from one faith to the other and will grow up without ever having heard of the Sermon on the Mount or the Golden Rule, to say nothing of the Ten Commandments… The education of the youth is to be confined primarily by the teacher, the officer, and the leaders of the party. The priests will die out. They have estranged the youth from the Volk. Into their places will step the leaders. Not deputies of God. But anyway the best Germans. And how shall we train our children? Thus, as though they had never heard of Christianity!”

Once again, this parallels what we are seeing happen in America today. Last year, a high school student in Southern Californiawas suspended for two days because he had private conversations with his classmates during which he discussed Christianity. He was also banned from bringing his Bible to school ever again.

For many more examples of this phenomenon, please see this article: "18 Examples Of How Christians Are Being Specifically Targeted By Big Brother".

#16 Adolf Hitler fully embraced the theory of evolution, and Darwinism provided the intellectual foundation for much of Nazism.

At a Nazi Party rally in Nuremberg in 1933, Hitler declared that"higher race subjects to itself a lower race . . .a right which we see in nature and which can be regarded as the sole conceivable right".

Hitler was obsessed with the "survival of the fittest" and he took this theory to its logical extremes. The following is how one author put it....

"Hitler was influenced above all by the theories of the nineteenth-century social Darwinist school, whose conception of man as biological material was bound up with impulses towards a planned society. He was convinced that the race was disintegrating, deteriorating through faulty breeding as a result of a liberally tinged promiscuity that was vitiating the nation’s blood. And this led to the establishment of a catalogue of ‘positive’ curative measures: racial hygiene, eugenic choice of marriage partners, the breeding of human beings by the methods of selection on the one hand and extirpation on the other"

But of course we have no problem with teaching this flawed theory to our children in the public schools of America today.

Haven't we learned anything from history?

#17 Under Adolf Hitler, the state started taking over the job of child care.

The following is more eyewitness testimony from Kitty Werthmann....

When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately established child care centers. You could take your children ages 4 weeks to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, 7 days a week, under the total care of the government. The state raised a whole generation of children. There were no motherly women to take care of the children, just people highly trained in child psychology.

Of course this is exactly what is happening in America today. Children are raised by day care centers and public schools, and most parents spend very little time with their own children.

#18 In Nazi Germany, it became fashionable to mock Christians and the Christian faith.

The following is more from author Bruce Walker....

By 1935, the virulently anti-Christian leader of the Hitler Youth, Baldur von Shirach issued a regulation that prohibited any child from belonging simultaneously to a church youth group and the Hitler Youth, and gradually membership in the Hitler Youth became almost obligatory – parents were told that their children would not get jobs in the civil service unless they belonged to the Hitler Youth and employers were told not to hire children who did not belong to the Hitler Youth. Christian schoolchildren who did not belong to the Hitler Youth or its female counterpart were routinely beaten up by young Nazi thugs.

Boys inducted into the Hitler Youth were required to explicitly reject Christianity by oaths like this: “German blood and Christian baptismal water are completely incompatible.” At Hitler Youth center at Halle, was the following prominent statement: “The Faith fanatics, who still to-day slide down on their knees with faces uplifted to heaven, waste their time in churchgoing and prayers, and have not yet understood that they are living on the earth and that therefore their task is of a thoroughly earthly kind. All we Hitler people can still only look with the greatest contempt on those young people who still run to their silly Evangelical or Catholic Churches in order to vent their quite superstitious religious feelings.”

Those that believe that the Nazis embraced Christianity are delusional. The following are direct quotes out of Hitler Youth training manuals....

“Christianity is a religion of slaves and fools.”

“How did Christ die? Whining at the Cross!”

“The Ten Commandments represent the lowest instincts of man.”

“Christianity is merely a cloak for Judaism.”

This is definitely where things are going in America today. Our television shows and our movies regularly mock Christians and they are always portrayed as the "bad guys".

In addition, the name of Jesus is rapidly becoming a forbidden word. Some U.S. courts have even ruled that it is unconstitutional to use the name of "Jesus Christ" during any official government meeting. The following comes from a recentWorldNetDaily article....

But the American Civil Liberties Union and Americans United for Separation of Church and State are standing by their victory in a U.S. circuit court decision that states even "a solitary reference to Jesus Christ" in invocations before the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners' meetings could do "violence to the pluralistic and inclusive values that are a defining feature of American public life."

#19 Under Adolf Hitler, sexual promiscuity was actually encouraged.

The following is more eyewitness testimony from Kitty Werthmann....

My mother was very unhappy. When the next term started, she took me out of public school and put me in a convent. I told her she couldn't do that and she told me that someday when I grew up, I would be grateful. There was a very good curriculum, but hardly any fun no sports, and no political indoctrination. I hated it at first but felt I could tolerate it. Every once in a while, on holidays, I went home. I would go back to my old friends and ask what was going on and what they were doing. Their loose lifestyle was very alarming to me. They lived without religion. By that time unwed mothers were glorified for having a baby for Hitler. It seemed strange to me that our society changed so suddenly. As time went along, I realized what a great deed my mother did so that I wasn't exposed to that kind of humanistic philosophy.

Of course the exact same thing is happening in America today. If you doubt that your tax dollars are going to promote sexual promiscuity, then I have a video for you to watch. It is a video from the American Life League, and you can view it right here. DO NOT let any children watch this video. It is done by a pro-life organization but it is very graphic. I have posted a link to it because it is imperative that parents understand what is really going on out there. But please be warned that it is very, very graphic.

#20 Once the Nazis took power, they rapidly implemented gun control legislation and later on they took all of the guns away from the populace.

Kitty Werthmann remembers very well what happened in Austria under the Nazis....

Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long after-wards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily.

Last year, more than 10 million guns were sold in the United States, but gun control legislation continues to become even more strict, and it is only a matter of time before the federal government tries to disarm the U.S. population completely.

#21 Under the Nazis, large numbers of children were taken away from good families.

The following is more from author Bruce Walker....

Parents who resisted Nazi anti-Christian indoctrination too strongly simply had their children taken away from them. The Nazis even forbade parents to give their children Christian names and ordered babies instead to be given names like Dietrich, Otto or Siegfried. The home teaching of Christianity by parents in the home was forbidden. Not content with simply driving Christianity out of public schools, Himmler banned all Confessing Church seminaries and instruction in 1937 and he closed all private religious schools two years later.

Doesn't this sound exactly like where America is headed?

In many states, CPS ("child protective services") has become one of the most feared government agencies. All over the nation, thousands upon thousands of children have been removed from good homes because the parents were not raising them "correctly".

You can read about one particularly bad CPS horror story right here.

#22 Under Adolf Hitler, society became very highly militarized.

Of course we are seeing the same thing in the U.S. right now.

Sadly, this is even happening to our public schools. According to blogger Alexander Higgins, students in kindergarten and the 1st grade in the state of New Jersey are now required by law to participate "in monthly anti-terrorism drills". The following is an excerpt from a letter that he recently received from the school where his child attends....

Each month a school must conduct one fire drill and one security drill which may be a lockdown, bomb threat, evacuation, active shooter, or shelter-in place drill. All schools are now required by law to implement this procedure.

This is the kind of thing that a sicko like Adolf Hitler would try to do, and it is not good for our children.

#23 In Nazi Germany, the prisons were absolutely packed.

Right now, the United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world by far and the largest total prison population on the entire globe by far.

Even children are being arrested in alarming numbers. In aprevious article, I described how one 12-year-old girl down in Texas was recently arrested for spraying herself with perfume and how police were recently sent out to collect an overdue library book from a 5-year-old girl in Massachusetts.

#24 Under Adolf Hitler, there was basically no freedom of speech.

In the United States today we are told that we still have freedom of speech, but that freedom is being "chilled" in thousands of different ways.

For example, the FBI is now admittedly recording Internet talk radio programs all over the United States. The following comes from a recent article by Mark Weaver of WMAL.com....

If you call a radio talk show and get on the air, you might be recorded by the FBI.

The FBI has awarded a $524,927 contract to a Virginia company to record as much radio news and talk programming as it can find on the Internet.

The FBI says it is not playing big brother by policing the airwaves, but rather seeking access to what airs as potential evidence.

So please speak freely on talk radio. Just realize that the feds will be recording every single word.

#25 Under Adolf Hitler, paranoia was standard operating procedure.

In Nazi Germany, every citizen was a potential threat and everyone had to be constantly watched for suspicious activity.

Of course the exact same thing is happening in America today. Just about anything you do can get you labeled as a "potential terrorist" by the government.

According to a new DHS report, the following are some of the beliefs and ideologies of potential terrorists....

-"fiercely nationalistic (as opposed to universal and international in orientation)"

-"anti-global"

-"suspicious of centralized federal authority"

-"reverent of individual liberty"

-"believe in conspiracy theories"

-"a belief that one’s personal and/or national “way of life” is under attack"

-"a belief in the need to be prepared for an attack either by participating in paramilitary preparations and training or survivalism"

-"impose strict religious tenets or laws on society (fundamentalists)"

-"insert religion into the political sphere"

-"those who seek to politicize religion"

-"supported political movements for autonomy"

-"anti-abortion"

-"anti-Catholic"

-"anti-nuclear"

And the definition of "suspicious activity" has become so broad in America that it pretty much covers 100% of us. In 2012, the following activities are considered to be "suspicious" by the FBI....

-shielding your computer screen from others

-paying with cash

-acting "nervous"

-using multiple cell phones

-requesting a specific room at a hotel

-traveling with a large amount of luggage

-refusing maid service at a hotel

-staying in your room for too long

-changing your appearance

In addition, the U.S. government has decided that it would be a really good idea for all of us to spy on one another. The "If You See Something, Say Something" campaign looks like it could have been pulled right out of a Gestapo security handbook.

But America is not supposed to be about spying on one another and reporting each other to the secret police.

America is supposed to be about liberty and freedom.

Recently, Fox News made a really bad decision by cancelling Freedom Watch. Judge Andrew Napolitano was one of the few voices on television that was still standing up for individual liberty.

As we think about how the Nazification of America has progressed, let the things that Judge Napolitano said on his last show echo in our minds. Video from that show is posted below....

Its important to note that fascism and communism are close siblings and fighting between them is little more than sibling rivalry.


The communist goals were entered into the Congressional record by Albert Herlong, Jr. (a Floridian who served in Congress from 1949-69).

1) US acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2) US willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3) Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the US would be a demonstration of “moral strength.”

4) Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5) Extension of long term loans to Russia and Soviet Satellites.

6) Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7) Grant recognition of Red China, and admission of Red China to the UN.

8) Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the Germany question by free elections under supervision of the UN.

9) Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the US has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10) Allow all Soviet Satellites individual representation in the UN.

11) Promote the UN as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the UN as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo).

12) Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13) Do away with loyalty oaths.

14) Continue giving Russia access to the US Patent Office.

15) Capture one or both of the political parties in the US.

16) Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions, by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17) Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for Socialism, and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers associations. Put the party line in text books.

18) Gain control of all student newspapers.

19) Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20) Infiltrate the press. Get control of book review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

21) Gain control of key positions in radio, TV & motion pictures.

22) Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all form of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings,” substitute shapeless, awkward, and meaningless forms.

23) Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24) Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25) Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography, and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio and TV.

26) Present homosexuality, degeneracy, and promiscuity as “normal, natural, and healthy.”

27) Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28) Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

29) Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30) Discredit the American founding fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man”.

31) Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of “the big picture”: Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32) Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture - - education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33) Eliminate all laws or procedures, which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34) Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35) Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36) Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37) Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38) Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand or treat.

39) Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40) Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41) Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42) Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special interest groups should rise up and make a “united force” to solve economic, political, or social problems.

43) Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44) Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45) Repeal the Connally Reservation so the US can not prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike.

Liberals have become so crass, so ignorant of history, and so idealogically blinded that we can now call them “National Socialists” without them realizing that we just painted them as NAZIs.

We called Obama a socialist because he definitely is one. We’ve been countered with, “What’s wrong with socialism?”

Now we can simply call them National Socialists. They don’t even KNOW we’ve just called them NAZIs. Give it a try and see how it plays. Report back on this thread for others to learn.

Periodically, when I find myself surrounded by liberals, I have thrown out the blurb that “what we need to do is combine nationalism with socialism and form a national socialist party.” I used to do it just to see how many giggles I’d get, then I started doing it to see if ANYONE would notice what I just promoted. Now what I get is, “That’s a good idea”.

See for yourself, give it a try.

The constitutional republic that was once the United States of America is dead. It is being replaced by something entirely different.

Concurrently, the centrifugal forces that threaten to blow the country apart are much stronger than the centripetal forces drawing it together.

We live in very dangerous times, the center is not holding.

Here’s one for the list: Obama is the only president (that I know of) who has consolodated his entire credo into one convenient logo. That repulsive rainbow-zero thing is our swastika.

The constitution has already been modernized. To wit:

The civil war got rid of the idea of "state's rights". Since states didn't have the right to secede, they had no rights at all.

After that the constitution was "modernized" to allow direct election of senators (another blow to state's rights). It was "modernized" again to allow the federal government to tax and individual's income. I believe the final nail was struck when Roscoe Filburn was told by the Supreme Court that he could not grow wheat on his own farm for his own consumption. After that, it was up to liberals and their willing accomplices in the media to follow through.

If the federal government could dictate to an individual that they could not grow a food crop on their own farm for their own use, they could basically dictate anything to anybody. This will probably, and unfortunately, be affirmed when the supreme court upholds Obamacare later this year.

Can you detect the fear I feel for your republic?

In my opinion, the single best (and most chilling) documentary on the rise of the nazis.

Its really hard to miss the clear parallels with today.

“The Rise” Its well worth a couple hours.

The following are some of the planks of the National socialist (Nazi) Party of Germany, adopted in Munich on February 24, 1920:

We ask that the government undertake the obligation above all of providing citizens with adequate opportunity for employment and earning a living.

The activities of the individual must not be allowed to clash with the interests of the community, but must take place within its confines and be for the good of all.

Therefore, we demand:

an end to the power of the financial interests .

We demand profit sharing in big business.

We demand a broad extension of care for the aged.

We demand. . . the greatest possible consideration of small business in the purchases of the national, state, and municipal governments.

In order to make possible to every capable and industrious [citizen] the attainment of higher education and thus the achievement of a post of leadership, the government must provide an all-around enlargement of our system of public education. . . .

We demand the education at government expense of gifted children of poor parents. . . .

The government must undertake the improvement of public health — by protecting mother and child, by prohibiting child labor — by the greatest possible support for all clubs concerned with the physical education of youth.

We combat the . . . materialistic spirit within and without us, and are convinced that a permanent recovery of our people can only proceed from within on the foundation of " The Common Good Before the Individual Good ."

One of the fundamentals in the above referenced article is the claim that the whole list of evils started under Adolph Hitler.

Any detailed analysis of German history would quickly reveal they started under the Weimar Republic ~ an entity frequently forgotten.

All the Nazis had to do was run Weimar nonsense into the ground, which they did!

Politically there was a very precise movement from the old royal system, into a rather mixed Communist/Socialist conflict, from there to a period of peace brought about by vast hyperinflation (your debts got erased), and from there to something more organized that allowed Hitler to renounce the SA and then become acceptable, and from that to complete totalitarian rule.

Parallel with all of that you had the phenomenon of Weimar Culture ~ that's when they started killing inconvenient people.

Europe, in general, is rapidly returning to that stage of development with the extension of euthenasia and abortion.

Think about it, there's no rational reason why the EU or any other state needs to require a member state provide abortion ~ yet, the EU does demand that.

The United States' has it's own Weimar problem. There's New York, Massachusetts, Illinois, Maryland and California ~ all hyper Leftwing states. Their laws have been molded by extremists to resemble Weimar and they are already on their way to third-world status with ever increasing levels of violence.

People in those states appear to be unable to resist the totalitarians ~ just like the Germans. Just a matter of time and you'll have the little Hitlers running around ~ probably named Cuomo.

True enough. It was simply the Fox/Piven plan before there was a Fox/Piven. Collapse the system under its own weight to intensify the suffering so the people go seeking a savior and the nazis provided the answers they wanted to hear.

Not if they don’t have the will to use them. What part of “the citizenry that is armed” came to the defense of those at Waco or Ruby Ridge? What part of “the citizenry that is armed” is standing with the Amish who are being arrested for selling raw milk?

Good except this one error I see a lot- #16 Adolf Hitler fully embraced the theory of evolution, and Darwinism provided the intellectual foundation for much of Nazism.

Hitler actually rejected Darwinian evolution and banned the teaching of evolution from schools. The Origin of the Species was one of the first books identified as officially banned in Germany. Hitler once wrote: "Where do we acquire the right to believe that man has not always been what he is now? The study of nature teaches us that, in the animal kingdom just as much as in the vegetable kingdom, variations have occurred. They've occurred within the species, but none of these variations has an importance comparable with that which separates man from the monkey — assuming that this transformation really took place..."

Hitler's religion was a Thulistic mix of various pagan religions like Odinism. He believed in seven difference species of man being created by a pantheon of gods (which Aryans being the highest). When he refers to 'higher forms of man' he isn't referring to more evolved races but those who were made to rule the others.

This point, however, can fit into the list because this religion could remind people a lot of the environmental movement and a lot of 'progressive' beliefs. They emphasized being close to nature, vegetarianism, rejection of technology in many forms, etc.

If you can stomach it, for research purposes, read Hitler's writings "Table Talk".

Key differences - the Nazi's were uber-nationalists, the current crop are globalists. The Nazis controlled the banks and industry, the globalists are the banks and some industry.

But the rest of it is spot on. Just remember that Obama and Romney and their ilk are willing puppets, not the drivers of this global coup.

“but the Feds have not yet confiscated our guns. As long as the citizenry is armed, we have a chance.”

Just wait for Barry part II....

But really, the idea that we can protect ourselves from the military is naive. I have a fervent hope that the “Oathkeepers” ideas will protect us however, the best weaponry we have as citizens is no match for the Police State as it stands. Yes, we have high powered hunting rifles, shotguns, handguns, etc. But the cold reality is that we are no match for a determined tyranny. In 1936 (I believe) when the Germans were disarmed the populace had weapons closely equal to the police/army. Today, our arms are based on 100 year old technology.

"0bama knows that he will have to break us in this republic or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all America may be free and life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fall, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.

Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the American Republic and its Sister states of Individual Liberty lasts for a thousand years, men will still say, “This was their finest hour!”

Workers of all lands, unite — to smash the rule of English capitalism! You young upward-striving nations of the earth, combine to annihilate the old English dragon who blocks the treasures of the earth and withholds from you the riches of the world.

-Robert Ley, German Labor Front leader (Hitler's Trumpka)

Yes, you who called us godless, we found our faith in Adolf Hitler, and through him found God once again. That is the greatness of our day, that is our good fortune!

-Robert Ley

Public need before private greed

- Walter Buch Nazi Judge

It is the absolute right of the state to supervise the formation of public opinion.

-Joseph Paul Goebbels

The efficiency of the truly national leader consists primarily in preventing the division of the attention of a people, and always in concentrating it on a single enemy.

-Hitler

Gold is not neccesary. I have no interest in gold. We will build a solid state, without an ounce of gold behind it. Anyone who sells above the set prices, let him be marched off to a concentration camp. That's the bastion of money.

-Hitler

Society's needs come before the individual's needs.

-Hitler

I think that I have already answered the first question adequately. In the present state of affairs I am convinced that we cannot possibly dispense with the trades unions. On the contrary, they are among the most important institutions in the economic life of the nation. Not only are they important in the sphere of social policy but also, and even more so, in the national political sphere. For when the great masses of a nation see their vital needs satisfied through a just trade unionist movement the stamina of the whole nation in its struggle for existence will be enormously reinforced thereby.

Before everything else, the trades unions are necessary as building stones for the future economic parliament, which will be made up of chambers representing the various professions and occupations.


-Hitler

The Germans put the Nazis in prison. Check the timelines. Other than a handful of murders the Nazis appeared to be about as meaningful as "Occupy......" or ACORN.

What really weighted down German society at the time wasn't even inflation but the forced reparations. What that meant was that no small businessman whose livelihood depended on an export business could ever make a profit ~ and here we're not talking about big time world class exports but things as simple as selling a pail of milk to a neighboring valley in France that'd been buying it for the last 1000 years to make cheese.

Those people were ripe for the Nazi takeover that came AFTER Hitler had personally taken over and disbanded the SA (the SA were the marching morons in the streets ~ mostly unemployed young men with nothing to do and having an inordinate interest in tan uniforms and red armbands).

Hitler solved their unemployment problems and infiltrated them into the existing army, albeit not as a formal "army" since that would violate the Allied restrictions on German rearmament.

He had some smart guys behind him ~ like Mitt and the Mitbots ~ not like Obama and the Obots. If anything Obama is more like Ernst Röhm who was later executed by Hitler.

CCRKBA Blasts Emanuel’s Proposed Illinois Gun Registration Scheme

PR Newswire

BELLEVUE, Wash., Feb. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s proposal to slap law-abiding Illinois gun owners with a handgun registration mandate that includes a $65 per-gun fee is “nothing more than a maneuver to discourage gun ownership in the face of court rulings that have gone against Chicago’s stubborn gun ban mentality,” the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

Under Emanuel’s proposal, any Illinois resident purchasing a handgun would be hit with the $65 registration requirement, which is over and above current statutory requirements that include possession of a Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) card.

The initial article we are discussing so strays from historic accuracy I'll have to say it's more like propaganda than anything else.

Otto von Bismarck (a 19th century German politician) is viewed more correctly as the individual most responsible for the development of German social security, disability insurance and medical insurance (for the broad masses).

Lots of the things that run counter to Conservative thought and interest occurred in Germany long before Hitler. If you want to use those things in a debate as examples of inappropriate government intrusion into what should be private activity that's OK, but you can't credit Hitler with every darned thing.

If you want to find the roots of modern government financial misbehavior you might well look to Abraham Lincoln and the Credit Moblier! There you are, a former railroad lawyer is now President and what is he doing? Well, he's shoveling government money to guys who build railroads. Johnson and then Grant followed up on that.

Wilson and FDR began the process. However, the major portion of present-day Nazification or crony capitalism began under Nixon - EPA, OSHA, the War on Natural Resource Harvesters, etc.

The first time the population at large noticed this was the ban on smoking. This was, of course, the very first thing the Nazis did, so long ago.

Every President since then has either continued this process whole cloth or pushed pieces - including the conservative “hero”, Reagan.

Ozero is just completing the process. Move along.

Bad as things are, the "Nazification" of America is not quite complete. If it were, there would be no opposition--all parties save the Democrats and maybe groups such as the New Black Panther Party would be banned. Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin, etc. would be in Guantánamo. On Election Day, members of the New Black Panther Party would stand in front of voting booths with their own ballot boxes inviting voters who favored regime candidates to drop their ballots into these boxes. They would be assisted by the Obama Youth, which would have replaced the Boy Scouts and other youth organizations. Those who insisted on voting as they pleased would later be paid a midnight visit by the TSA, now greatly expanded into a force akin to Hitler's Gestapo.

Guantánamo residents would include virtually all members of the Tea Party whom the TSA could find, as well as all religious leaders who opposed the government. The states would be subjected to Gleichschaltung, or "coordination," and every state, including Texas, Utah and Idaho would have a governor like Jerry Brown and a legislature like California's.

We're not there yet, but it's no longer unthinkable.

Part of this One World group is culling out the population. They FIRMLY believe the planet cannot sustain the current population and have DECIDED that the planet can only take care of 500 MLLION people. They are all for culling people. Health Care control is the way to do it. Get sick, give you a pain pill and allow you to die. Not enough money to take care of you. But the rich elites of the left will have plenty to go to their private doctors. Do you think Soros or Obama have EVER waited in line to see a doctor? I think not. Americans are blind as bats. We have had it so good for so long, they will believe anything to keep getting it free or to have theirs. All under the disguise of “it is your RIGHT” to have, possess, take it.

They certainly suppressed the competition ~ and kept millions of unemployed young men organized, if not properly employed.

That seems to have been felt to be quite convenient by German state and local authorities ~ the very sort of behavior we saw with mayors' coddling "Occupy.....".

Imagine, Hizhonor, Mayor of Nyork, Bloomberg, behaving just like the mayor of Frankfort (e.g.) during the Weimar Republic period. Oh, my goodness!

Still, so expected, and so typical.

Contrary to the false belief of so many modern people, Hitler and his Nazi party didn't walk into a vacuum all by themselves. That's just the street theatre part. They took over a nation given to brutal solutions to minor issues ~ and fit right into the parts prepared for them.

The nazi rise to power was anything but meteoric or direct which makes it pretty confusing due to the shifting alliances that occurred.

I guess that’s why I promote “The Rise” so much. It touches on the various groups and their parts without getting too bogged down in details that would bore most viewers.

“This is not the story of how Hitler siezed power

Its the story of how the German people gave it to him.”

An excellent post and the comparisons are more than sobering, they are horrifying.

There is yet one more comparison between Nazi Germany and the emerging Nazi American State, and that is the hope that at some future point, among America's armed forces who still take their oaths seriously, to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic" and we will discover our very own Lieutenant Colonel von Stauffenberg and when he succeeds where his namesake failed, he will be lauded as great a man as George Washington himself.

The more I read about the use of ‘cultural marxism’ instead of a frontal assault on the US, the more I realize how insidious and successful it has been in chipping away our traditional morals and culture. The enemy within has been very patient and cleverly crafted a set of lies for both the ‘right’ and the ‘left’.
