Posted on 10/31/2002 4:47:42 PM PST by N2Gems
I swear, about the only thing missing from Tuesday nights "memorial" service for the late Sen. Paul Wellstone of Minnesota was a torchlight parade around the stadium, with the 30,000 participants arranging themselves in such manner as to form a giant, flaming swastika on center field and then dispersing to smash the windows of nearby conservative-owned businesses.
Other than that, it was virtually impossible to tell the Wellstone public eulogy in Minneapolis apart from the 1935 Nuremberg rally that whipped German citizens into a frenzy of Nazi rage against the Jews. There was even a fiery, Hitler-like orator by the name of Rick Kahn, who at times seemed to come perilously close to calling on Wellstones Republican opponent (along with the entire Republican party) to curl up and die.
The service for Wellstone and his family and campaign staff who perished with him in the plane crash last week was supposed to be a non-political event. Of course, as youve no doubt heard in great detail by now, it turned out to be anything but.
However, thats not what I want to discuss with you. I want instead to explore something far more fear-inducing, for what transpired there in the University of Minnesotas Williams Arena is indicative of the increasingly dangerous circumstances we as conservatives are facing - and are, by and large, failing to prepare to defend ourselves against.
What has become crystal clear to me in the wake of the Wellstone event is that conservatives in America today are on the very verge of becoming the unmistakable equivalent of the Jews in mid-1930s Germany. And I dont mean rhetorically.
Its not just the fanatical outcry against conservatives heard at the Wellstone memorial that causes me to think this. Its also the result of new polling showing Wellstones fill-in, former Vice President Walter F. Mondale, handily beating Republican challenger Norm Coleman.
This is astounding - and scary. The poll of 639 likely voters by the leftist Minneapolis Star-Tribune was conducted Monday. At that point, word of Mondale stepping into Wellstones still-warm shoes had barely begun to reach voters, yet those surveyed already had a carved-in-stone opinion and said they preferred him over Coleman by 47% to 39%.
You might be able to write this off to rigged polling or perhaps to mere wishfulness by Democrat cheerleaders in the local press. But to me, the poll data suggest it matters not to most of the surveyed voters who runs against Coleman. The substitute candidate could have been Webb Hubbells famous indicted ham sandwich for all they cared. The person they want to represent them in the Senate is anybody but Coleman.
Or, expressed another way, anybody but a guy who looks, talks or even remotely smells like a conservative.
Apparently, these Minnesota voters - like their counterparts in New Jersey who are said to by far favor the Democrat ringer in that states similarly corrupt Senate contest - simply hate people like you and me. Indeed, their hatred for us is the exact same virulent kind as that which reared up against the Jews in Nazi Germany long before the war.
Why do they hate us? I could write volumes in answer to that. But suffice it to say for now that leftists loathe conservatives and conservatism with a passion because both get in the way of their satanically inspired aspirations and generally make them feel inferior.
The Lefts parallels to the Nazis of yore dont stop at their desire to see conservatives banished (or, better yet, turned into lampshades and other useful things that can be sold at trendy, upscale retail stores along Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood). If were the Jews, then Paul Wellstone is the Democrat partys Horst Wessel.
Who the hell is Horst Wessel, you ask? An interesting fellow. As I tell you about him, youll immediately see why he was to the German Nazi party what Wellstone now is to the American version of the Nazi party.
Wessel was from an upstanding religious family, but forsook his parents and their faith in order to go live with a prostitute in the red-light district of the nations capital where, as a neighborhood leader of the Brownshirts in the days before Hitlers rise to power, he worked tirelessly to impose Nazism. (The one thing about this that doesnt truly correspond with Wellstones life is that Wellstone did not live with a prostitute - instead, by joining the Senate, he became one himself.)
In 1930, Wessel was murdered by thugs from a rival left-wing organization - the Communist party. This unfortunate incident quickly propelled the young scoundrel from obscurity to immense fame as the Nazi partys ultimate martyr, just as Wellstone today is the ultimate glorified victim for Democrats nationwide.
Contemplate the words of William L. Shirer, author of The Rise and Fall of The Third Reich and see if this doesnt apply to Wellstone: "...[T]hanks to Dr. Goebbels [James Carvilles] skillful propaganda, [he] became one of the great hero legends of the movement, hailed as a pure idealist who had given his life for the cause."
As luck would have it, Horst, who possessed musical talent (if you consider farting like mad after a meal of beans to be musical talent), had composed a ballad about the joys of Nazism. It was discovered among his effects following his brutish demise. It became known as "The Horst Wessel Song" (god, those Nazis were inventive when it came to giving names) which eventually was rivaled in popularity only by the German national anthem. In fact, Horsts martial-sounding tune served as a second national anthem; the Nazis themselves proclaimed it their partys official theme song.
And, as luck would also have it, Paul Wellstone was a big bean eater and so he, too, produced a ballad before he died. His was about the joys of Democrat politics. I have clandestinely obtained a copy of it. Here it is, sung to the tune of "Id Like to Teach the World to Sing:"
"Id like to rid the world of those, "who do not share my view. "Cuz abortion rules in public schools, "and taxpayers we must screw."
The song goes on for several more stanzas, but its obvious just from this small sampling why the Left would clamor to elevate the Wellstone ditty to the level of a "Horst Wessel Song."
So where does that leave us as conservatives? In deep, deep trouble. You might recall the words of Rep. Major Owens (D-N.Y.), a member of the Black Caucus who, after the Republicans gained control of the House of Representatives in 1994, warned in a thunderous floor speech that conservatives were coming to round up the old, the very young, the weak, the infirm, the insane (i.e., Democrat supporters), and everybody else who was non-white, not living in a mansion and not in possession of either a country club membership or a bedsheet with eye holes cut in it. Psychologists believe that the mendacious among us typically ascribe the evil in their hearts to innocent others. This is called projection. The Owens speech - like all speeches by Democrats from Bill Clinton on down the line - was an exercise in projection: he says we want to round up the huddled masses and treat them to a big dose of Zyklon-B gas, but, in reality, thats what he and his Democrat colleagues actually yearn to do to us.
My advice: youd better get ready to physically defend yourself, your loved ones, your homes and your possessions. We have, with the Wellstone memorial, crossed into new territory. The mask is off, the intentions are clear. The Left is moving into high-gear to lock us down and take us out. Most frightening when you think about it is the sheer number of our countrymen - fully now one-half of the populace - whose minds have been poisoned against us by decades of anti-right propaganda.
Since Tuesday, I have gained a much keener appreciation for how the Jews of Germany felt at around the time the Nazis passed the Nuremberg laws, effectively outlawing Jews. In Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, Shirer recounts that, on a road outside Ludwigshafen, the government installed a sign that read, "Drive Carefully! Sharp Curve! Jews 75 MPH!" Put "Conservatives" in place of "Jews" and that pretty much sums up where were at as of this moment.

You read The Ominous Parallels, correct? Unfortunately, I still have mine in the queue sitting on my shelf.
The GOP has nobody but itself to blame, their failure to effectively utilize propaganda like the DNC does is just as dangerous to the security of this nation as the jackass party.
"Everyone should have an assault rifle, 10,000 rounds of ammunition, and couple of automatic pistols and a really large caliber revolver or two" Bump!
So, if Wellstone is their Horst Wessel and Carville is their Goebbels, then who is their Adolph Hitler, eh?
A couple of examples. Two pages from a high-school yearbook of mine carry the following headings:
At Weekly Meetings the Christian Youth Club Practices Christian Ideals
The Hi-Y Club Helps Promote Christian Character
Imagine the howls those titles, much less the groups themselves, would bring today. (In terms of my age, it's still years before I expect to be a grandfather; this yearbook is not that old.)
For the past decade and a half since I first saw this quote, I've felt an affinity for what the speaker experienced in the (linked) quote from the book They Thought They Were Free.
As the speaker says of himself, he's seen it coming and yet... he denies it and remains silent, because the time is not right. Nobody is listening, nobody acts, there is never a time to act. And so things continue to get worse and we've not begun to plumb the depths of what could, or will, happen here.
"1984" is probably the best vision of our future. (My copy has gone walkabout, how does it end? "And he loved Big Brother."?)
I have been saying this for some time.
Mercifully, I only followed the Wellstone Parteitag by FR thread. I do not think I could watch history repeat itself like this. The author gets a tad dramatic and is unduly pessimistic: Conservatives are not stupid enough to hand over their firearms. But still, the Wellstone Hitlerjugend affair opened up the eyes.
Remember 1984 by George Orwell? Remember the Minute of Hate? That's what that was. All dressed up in a whole arena singing Love Train and wild adulation for the Hillbilly Fuhrer and his consiglieres and capos regimes.
What you saw there was an undercurrent of hate. They couldn't even be decent to Trent Lott, whose record of ineffectuality should have made him a hero to the assembled Party Faithful. They booed him. He had come to pay his respects to a fellow Senator and they booed him.
This is the Party that Clinton built. Once, in the eighties, they were the party of Tip O'Neill, Jim Wright, and ineffectual if corrupt liberalism. Then they made a pact with the Devil, and Bill Clinton won two elections for them. He taught them to lie, he taught them to steal, he taught them to cheat, and he showed them that they could beat the rap.
Dishonesty pays. The Democrats learned well. They tossed aside common decency in favor of the Fuhrerprinzip, and this is what we are faced with.
However, I do not fear them. We have our firearms and do not intend to give them up. Also, they do not own half the population. They do own the allegiance of about a fourth of the population with the other fourth belonging to us. It's that other fifty percent that's up for grabs.
However, there is a tide in human affairs. People like the Clintons and the McAuliffes ALWAYS overreach. They cannot do otherwise. Bush understands this, which is why the populace as a whole admires the man and has chosen to stick with him. He doesn't overreach, and has chosen to deal with Democrats who are willing to deal with him, such as Breaux and Zell Miller.
But do not forget this incident, no matter what the outcome of the election. Fascism is on the march, and we'd best be alert about it.
Be Seeing You,
Those poor Jew people who suffered under the club swinging window breakersw had no arms nor much will to use them. We all know how that worked out
Great minds think alike bump.
Interesting to note how that image of torchlit Nazi rallies seems to have struck many folks at the same time. It's starting to become the dominant meme for the Democrats.
The more they show their true faces, the more their party deserves the name of Democratic National Socialists.
Should they manage to lie, cheat or steal their way to power, it won't be long before the killing starts.
Oh, my God! This piece is so interesting!
Democrats do the same thing.
As in, 'for the Children."
You're kidding right? You have to ask?? Why do you think we call her "HITLERY"???
Propaganda isn't what the United States of America is about.
Heck, they've been doing that since before Mayor Daley was born. Well, maybe since he was "elected", but that's become the modus operandus of the democRATs. Its just that now, some of us folks are beginning to realize it. Anyway, with all the lie-cheat-stealin' going on in with the democrats, I still haven't heard of any killing yet.
That voice you hear sneering that nobody's out to take your pretty toys from you, we'll let you have them as long as they're registered? That same voice was shouting "Juden raus!" not so very long ago. This isn't paranoia - there really is a "they" and they don't like us. I once told noumenon to his face that I thought he might be overreacting in this regard. I have come around to his point of view since. It is not a happy epiphany.
I feel sorry for the Wellstone boys. Whatever their political persuasion, they will come to realize that they besmirched their father's reputation as a decent man. To use the violent death of a man and his family to revel like pigs in self-gratification and self-promotion, to sell grief like a commodity--the Democratic party is Bill Clinton--a totally self-absorbed entity that is truly grotesque to behold.
Too bad that decent Democrats like Lieberman or Breaux have not come out to denounce this travesty. They remind me of the Saudis--making their own deals with the Devil in the hopes that the alligator will eat them last.
Third Way is the only way for them. You'll always have folks who produce if you don't make them slaves. It's in their nature. Europe is an example. "Soft Communism" is the wave of the future, dude! No death camps, 12 weeks of vacation a year, and societal/technical stagnation. WOO HOO!
I thought the same thing while briefly viewing the Wellstone rally on TV the other night. I also noticed that after the initial uproar about the rally how quickly the media stopped talking about it.
You refer to these leftist socialists as liberals?
"OK, so who's their Hitler?"
Tyranny comes in many forms.
