Obama has regularly employed techniques, either parallel to, if not actually drawn from, Hitler's "playbook."
No demagogue, of course, ever announced that his purpose was a Totalitarian Society. The "unity"--in reality uniformity--being proposed, was supposed to magically enhance "freedom," "opportunity" &, of course, "hope" & "change."
The game is as old as human history; unfortunately, as effective today as in the days of Genesis.
"Freedom" and "unity" are, of course, antithetical concepts.
Which doesn't stop Hollywood from using the immense market power of its celebrity nitwits to push fascism. :)
What we are witnessing are the consequences of good men who ceased to be good men due to inaction during the 60's.
Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.
My 91 year old German mother is very very nervous. The current condition is very familiar. For instance, Obama recently said he had cut the budget by $1T. It was a lie, but no one called him on it. There was some journalists who said they would maybe try to hold the Democrats accountable, but it hasn’t happened. It’s always the Republicans’fault. Pretty soon any opposition to “progressives” will be enemies of the state.
