As The Reichstag Burns
My utter disdain for Fuhrer Obama and his plots | 1/30/13 | Alan Levy, Gun Owner

Posted on 01/30/2013 6:44:52 PM PST by Absolutely Nobama

In today's episode of "As The Reichstag Burns", let's talk about Dianne Frankenfeinstein's (H/T Mark Levin) attempt to ban "assault weapons". (Just so you know, "assault weapons" are vewy, vewy scawy guns that make homosexual agenda-pushing commie libtards poop themselves. No gun aficionado I know of has ever used the term.)

Before we get started, a little housekeeping is in order. I know there are some out there who are in the "It Will Never Get Through The House" camp. To those dunderheads, I say this: The current Republican't (no typo) party has just raised raised taxes and is now considering amnesty for illegal alien criminals. What on God's green and cooling earth makes you think the Weeper of the House and his cronies in the Establishment Leadership are all of a sudden going to become sentient beings with discernible vertebrae ? John Boehner and his crew are more interested in being loved in the editorial page of RINO rags like the Wall Street Journal than they are in upholding the Constitution. (Don't know what the Constitution is ? Blame a unionized public school teacher.) You can bet your last fiat dollar that the Republican'ts will pass some sort of "assault weapon" ban in the near future, despite what Conservative heroes like Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Louie Gohmert, and Michele Bachmann say or do. I hate to sound like a quitter, but the last year and some change has destroyed my optimism. The Bill Kristols of world, not content with handing the United States on a silver platter to a Jew hating lowlife like Barack HUSSEIN Obama, will get their way yet again.

Frankenfeinstein's plot to nullify (Are we still allowed to say that, Tim Kaine ?) the Second Amendment is as follows:

Law abiding citizens may not:

*own 150 different types of firearms

*possess magazines that are capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition

*walk past a picture of Barack Obama without giving the salute and shouting "Seig Heil!" (Oh c'mon, it was funny and you know it.)

I'm not going to get into a long discussion about how criminals are going to ignore the ban. You've heard it at least 16 trillion times, and you don't need me to rehash it for you. You're a smart cookie who lives in what Rush Limbaugh calls "Literalville". There isn't a thing I can tell you about crime and criminals that you don't already know.

But there is something I can tell you about the "Assault Weapon" Grab that you may not know. Federal law enforcement is immune from the ban. They can carry whatever weapons they like. Their magazines can hold as much ammo is they want. They can use whatever ammo they want. In other words, federal agents will be armed like the Punisher any time they want.

Somehow, I don't think that is what the Founders had in mind.

Don't get me wrong, I support law enforcement. I have nothing but the utmost respect for the FBI, Secret Service, and the like. These folks put their lives on the line every day, and for that, they have my deepest, heartfelt thanks. They have every right in the world to defend themselves.

But at the same time, these folks weren't granted special Unalienable Rights that weren't granted to the rest of us. Being sworn in as a law enforcement officer doesn't make one citizen better than another. If law enforcement has the right to carry almost every non-military grade weapon, the same must go for the people who pay their salaries. Just as law enforcement agents have a right to defend themselves, so does John Q. Public. Anything else leads to the same flawed thinking that turned the Weimar Republic into the Third Reich after the Reichstag Fire. It's that simple. We aren't coming to a slippery slope, we're sliding uncontrollably on one.

"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." --Benjamin Franklin

I think the parallel fits. Adolf Hitler and Barack Obama have a lot in common and we’re fast becoming the Weimar Republic.

Is the Hitler meme overdone by some ? Yes. Does it fit very situation ? No.

Does it fit here ? Yes.

"Good tagline...and sooo true!!" I stole it from Alan Moore's Watchmen. A great movie and a great book. Highly recommended.

"Only problem is, probably 90% of the US—INCLUDING 75% of CHRISTIANS—do NOT believe it!!" They'll become believers soon enough. By then, it will be too late. The handwriting is on the wall. (70% of my fellow Jews voted this stupidity, fyi) "The 'trains' are indeed coming...aren’t they??" They left the station when the first progressiveviks crawled out of the primordial ooze of failed European political theory.

I would offer that we are not in 1938 Germany. We are in 1920’s Soviet Russia.

It’s not National Socialism that Odinga is pushing; it’s full-bore Marxism.

He does not need stormtroopers. He already has the Cheka and his own NKVD. He doesn’t need Obamajungen, he has Komsomol.

The cry of “Nazi-Nazi-Nazi!” is heard too often and too shrill. Call them by their right name; call them Communists, and watch their heads explode.

I can't argue with that. Perhaps I'm being subconsciously being influenced by the book I'm currently reading, John Toland's Adolf Hitler, Volume 1 . Or worse, we're living in a combination of both. Either way, this is not what the Founders had in mind, not by a long shot.

Kudos for a thought provoking post!

Been stuck on the night shift. A little word of advice, LJ:

Never call your supervisor a “commie homosexual agenda pusher”. It isn’t worth the grief, no matter how much the offending party deserves it.

Godwin’s rule is a tool of statists to shut down debate that exposes the clear parallels with their goals. At this point, it is exactly the same as saying we all hate Obama because we’re racist.

Oh wow, Toland; I had Toland as an undergrad textbook back in the day for a level 300 history course.

The prof was good; we did a role-play of Kristallnacht in class. THAT was thought-provoking.

Ironic that we are dealing with enemies both foreign and domestic: domestic enemies forcing a foreign ideology upon us.

I’ll go along with Old Sarge. Here’s why.

While he held his first job after college (and apparently the only one in private sector, and for a short time) Obama wrote to his mother that he hated it because it was working for the enemy!

In his ghost written book, he confesses that during college years he was drawn to Marxist professors. These are documented admissions, and there may be others (I haven’t read his two books, and won’t read them) to illustrate Obama’s views and loyalties.

Godwin’s Law (Google is your friend) is a tool of thinking men to shut up thoughtless and childish comparisons employed by conventional [non]thinkers to some mythical evil that everyone agrees upon, and which comparisons bring no light on the subject at hand!

I replied to a post the other day showing the similarities of Hitler and Obama and they are getting more and more frightening. I will not go into all the similarities but they are there. Hitler sold his soul to Satan, Obama sold his soul to Allah which is ecentially Satan in a dirty night shirt. There are many more similarities people should just open their eyes and they are right in front of them. OK Flame away.

I agree. Godwin’s Law is bogus. Any analogy that fits is valid. Godwin’s Law is basically an Alinsky tactic. A type of PC language control.

As I told Sarge, I can't argue his points. There are plenty of similarities to the USSR of the 1920's.

I've always looked at Nazi Germany and the USSR as exactly what they are: Collectivist leftist dictatorships. There are very few differences between the two. Yes, there was capitalism in the Third Reich, but it was under strict control of the Nazis. (Crony capitalism, anyone ?)

One of my favorite books on the subject is Liberal Fascism by Jonah Goldberg. A great read.

Neither Adolf Hitler nor Barack HUSSEIN Obama were born in the country they were destined to lead into ruin.

You are right about calling them communists. I told my retired UAW father-in-law that I don’t watch ABC, NBC and CBS because the “C” stands for Communist. He still isn’t talking to me. I wish I had thought of it sooner.

People have been pointing out the similarities between the two systems for much longer than Goldberg. See here:
Although our modern socialists' promise of greater freedom is genuine and sincere, in recent years observer after observer has been impressed by the unforeseen consequences of socialism, the extraordinary similarity in many respects of the conditions under "communism" and "fascism." As the writer Peter Drucker expressed it in 1939, "the complete collapse of the belief in the attainability of freedom and equality through Marxism has forced Russia to travel the same road toward a totalitarian society of un-freedom and inequality which Germany has been following. Not that communism and fascism are essentially the same. Fascism is the stage reached after communism has proved an illusion, and it has proved as much an illusion in Russia as in pre-Hitler Germany."

No less significant is the intellectual outlook of the rank and file in the communist and fascist movements in Germany before 1933. The relative ease with which a young communist could be converted into a Nazi or vice versa was well known, best of all to the propagandists of the two parties. The communists and Nazis clashed more frequently with each other than with other parties simply because they competed for the same type of mind and reserved for each other the hatred of the heretic. Their practice showed how closely they are related. To both, the real enemy, the man with whom they had nothing in common, was the liberal of the old type. While to the Nazi the communist and to the communist the Nazi, and to both the socialist, are potential recruits made of the right timber, they both know that there can be no compromise between them and those who really believe in individual freedom.

-- F.A. Hayek, The Road to Serfdom

Hayek was writing in the 1940s of events he had observed in the 1920s and 1930s. And when Hayek speaks of a "the liberal of the old type", he is talking about what we today consider a conservative, as our current so-called "liberals" are nothing but socialists or worse.

Good point. Ayn Rand did as well.

The German Communists came up with this saying after Hitler eradicated them after the Reichstag Fire:

“First Brown, then Red!”

And it came true. Granted, Hitler and his goon squad arrested and executed much of the Communist leadership, but the rank and file for the most part joined the NSDAP.

After the war, many Gestapo agents, members of the SD, and members of the Abwehr (the ones that weren’t in on Operation Valkyrie, that is) joined the East German STASI without reservation.

You can also see the links between the two today. The Occupy Wall Street Bowel Movement was endorsed by the American Nazi Party. White Aryan Resistance leader Tom Metzger calls himself a leftist and, believe it or not, admires Barack Obama.

I always get such a kick out of hearing “socialists,” especially “national socialists,” despise and rant about “communists.” I have gotten into many debates of this sort, particularly with unionistas, and find that most simply cannot see that, at their root, they are all just marxists. Statists and collectivists by any other name, you know...
