History Channel Now...The Rise of Hitler
9/16/2012 | Me!

Posted on 09/16/2012 11:25:24 AM PDT by NoGrayZone

The history channel is now airing the Rise of Hitler. History tends to repeat itself....if we DO NOT learn from it.

Just started 20 minutes ago....seems like Germany was looking for it's "messiah" back then.

Sound familiar?

Just a look at how easily people are mislead and want to be taken care of...not that we already knew that.

National Socialist Party. That is what it was.

No need to watch it..we’re living it. At least Hitler knew how many states there were in his country and he never used a prompter’.

What will Obamas “Reichtag” moment? Will Occupy commit some horrible crime so Obama could blame the Tea Party?

We MUST learn from history in order to prevent it from happening again.

Who cares what “the man who calls himself obama” does. It is up to US to stop it.

The German people went along with it. The true US Americans WILL NOT!

I expect a bloody mess before January 2013.

If history is repeating itself, how will Obama transition from President to Dictator? Certainly the military will need to be his willing accomplice.

How the heck can we tell who is with us or against us? That is my problem.

Truly evil. It needs to be stopped.....whatever the cost =(.

If we're talking about Hitler, I would put in a plug for the mini-series 'Hitler - The Rise of Evil' (2003), with the Scottish actor Robert Carlyle portraying Hitler from his early years up through the point where he seized total power after the death of Hindenburg. I thought Carlyle was refreshing (if one can call a portrayal of Hitler as 'refreshing') for he showed Hitler as the sociopath he was, with a look inside the personal life of the future fuehrer.

In an interesting bit of casting, Matthew Modine (aka 'Private Joker' in Full Metal Jacket) portrays 'Fritz Gerlich', a German journalist who refuses to knuckle under to the Nazis, all in all I gave it high marks.

Third Reich - The Rise and Third Reich - The Fall are the best I’ve seen and extremely chilling in the context of our world today.

NoGrayZone my Dear.

You have GOT to watch the History Channel Special

Third Reich-The Rise

Third Reich-The Fall

It is the single best Documentary on Nazi Germany I have ever seen.

No Interviews 70 years later, no expert analysis.

Just the Film and statements taken at the time.

It is how the German people and the world honestly felt about Hitler and Germany at their present time.

You will be asking the whole time "How could they let this happen" because you have the hindsight of History, it is what our Children will be asking about us.

It is very, VERY scary.

My only suggestion for viewers is not to get too tied to the idea of it being like Obama. Its too important to understand the whole context of the world the Germans lived in compared to the world we live in today.

Its an overall indictment of progressivism as a whole.

Damn, Cripple you are too fast for me.

Shouldn't have watched a little bit of it. LOL

I was even going to ping you to my post.

But figured you knew about the special already.

Guess I was right.

That is what I have just posted....right now it is Hitlers rise. After that, his fall.

That’s why I posted this thread!

Some scary same cr@p coming from “the man who calls himself obama”.

Cr@p, are we in the “end of the system of things?”

Oh, I see.

I thought Rise of Hitler

Was different from Third Reich-The Rise/The Fall.

I can't check the History Channel right now so I thought you was watching something different.

Either way there are the links in case you miss something.

Remember what Cripple said though, Hitler and Ubama are NOT the same, the do however share the SAME Ideological roots.

Socialism

I believe that's how we see it...at least most of of here.

Way too many similarities to dismiss.

Hitler was a National Socialist, as is our left, even more so.

To me, we're actually fighting against something MORE evil than Hitler.

Scary times.

That's exactly my point. Too many of the things we tie to Obama have been going on for years. Getting rid of Obama is good but meaningless if we don't destroy the rest of progressivism that has been creeping up on us for decades. Things like the schools, overtaxation, regulation, criminalized thought etc....

I’ve seen this documentary/movie a lot of times on History Channel. Watching it right now while cooking Sunday dinner...

I’m still get perplexed and aghast at the thought of the little children being told to recite those anti-Jew poems... and all the footage of Olympics 1936 in Berlin is always interesting...

I have to say that History did a good job in this Rise and Fall series...

Okay, this is TOTALLY off course. But as I was outside having a butt, I realized the Ice Cream Man hasn’t come around.

I don’t know why that popped into my mind (okay, I’m in the mood for a toasted almond ice cream bar). The Ice Cream man was ALWAYS around.

I think I’m reverting to my youth....Lord help me.

i agree with you. thanks for posting this!
...to me, the scariest part,
is how quickly it all happened.
a lot of good people... did nothing.
-
just as even our majority in congress,
sits and does NOTHING,
as Obama violates the War Powers Act,
and “legilizes” immigrants,
and violates our Constitution,
in many other ways.
-
not only do most do nothing,
some, like McCain and Boehner,
actually DEFEND Obama !!!

Hitler's own words, reads like it scrolled off O'Bastard's teleprompter:

We demand that the State shall above all undertake to ensure that every citizen shall have the possibility of living decently and earning a livelihood.

All citizens must possess equal rights and duties.

We demand: That all unearned income, and all income that does not arise from work, be abolished.

Since every war imposes on the people fearful sacrifices in blood and treasure, all personal profit arising from the war must be regarded as treason to the people. We therefore demand the total confiscation of all war profits.

We demand the nationalization of all trusts.

We demand profit-sharing in large industries.

We demand a generous increase in old-age pensions.

We demand the creation and maintenance of a sound middle-class, the immediate communalization of large stores which will be rented cheaply to small tradespeople, and the strongest consideration must be given to ensure that small traders shall deliver the supplies needed by the State, the provinces and municipalities.

We demand an agrarian reform in accordance with our national requirements, and the enactment of a law to expropriate the owners without compensation of any land needed for the common purpose. The abolition of ground rents, and the prohibition of all speculation in land.

In order to make it possible for every capable and industrious German to obtain higher education, and thus the opportunity to reach into positions of leadership, the State must assume the responsibility of organizing thoroughly the entire cultural system of the people. The curricula of all educational establishments shall be adapted to practical life. The conception of the State Idea (science of citizenship) must be taught in the schools from the very beginning. We demand that specially talented children of poor parents, whatever their station or occupation, be educated at the expense of the State.

The State has the duty to help raise the standard of national health by providing maternity welfare centers, by prohibiting juvenile labor, by increasing physical fitness through the introduction of compulsory games and gymnastics, and by the greatest possible encouragement of associations concerned with the physical education of the young.

We demand the abolition of the regular army and the creation of a national (folk) army.

We demand that there be a legal campaign against those who propagate deliberate political lies and disseminate them through the press.

In order to carry out this program we demand: the creation of a strong central authority in the State, the unconditional authority by the political central parliament of the whole State and all its organizations.

They Pointed to Buck v. Bell in the USA as an example.
