    The Danger of Hitler Comparisons: Part 2 By Philip CottrauxClick here to read part 1. After I wrote about why it’s dangerous to compare your political enemies to Hitler (which is an epidemic right now), I thought I was done with the subject. In fact, last week I moved on to something else. But I started thinking more about it and realized that I still have much to say. While the first blog was about why it’s both dangerous and intellectually lazy to categorize a politician you didn’t vote for as “the next Hitler,” this week I want to explore...
  • How Dictators Come To Power In A Democracy [Future History of a Post Trump America?]

    Dictatorships are often unexpected. They have arisen among prosperous, educated and cultured people who seemed safe from a dictatorship – in Europe, Asia and South America. Consider Germany, one of the most paradoxical and dramatic cases. During the late 19th century, it was widely considered to have the best educational system in the world. If any educational system could inoculate people from barbarism, surely Germany would have led the way. It had early childhood education -- kindergarten. Secondary schools emphasized cultural training. Germans developed modern research universities. Germans were especially distinguished for their achievements in science – just think of...

    Some of you need to cease the denial and accept the harsh reality that the left hates you. It’s a fact, as much as the liberal gaslight gang and the conserva-sissy weakhearts deny it. You can tell that leftists hate you by the way that leftists tell you that they hate you.Take Sarah Jeong, please – hey, the New York Times was happy to get this bitter creep onboard because of her history of virulent racism. The Times saw her hate as a plus, not a negative, an asset, not a liability. You can’t draw any other conclusion – if you...

    The Danger of Hitler Comparisons By Philip Cottraux October 26, 1948. Facing possible defeat from Republican challenger Thomas Dewey, Harry Truman said in a campaign speech in Chicago: “A Republican victory on election day will bring a Fascistic threat to American freedom that is even more dangerous than the perils from communism and extreme right crackpots.” The New York Times headline the following morning screamed loudly: “PRESIDENT LIKENS DEWEY TO HITLER AS ‘FASCIST TOOL.’” A new tradition was born. Every Republican presidential candidate since has been compared to Hitler. In the aftermath of World War II, this cynical attempt to...

    It has become a tiresome cliche on the left. President Trump is the new Hitler. His supporters are all Nazis. But is there any truth in these comparisons?Not according to a real-life survivor of Hitler’s Germany, Marion Ingeborg Andrews, who gave entitled liberals a major reality check when she told them that liberals are the extremist group that most closely resemble the Nazis she grew up with.
  • Dem candidate 'struck by the parallels' between Trump's rise and Hitler's (Perry Gershon)

    The Hill ^ | 07/22/18 | Max Greenwood
    The Democrat challenging Rep. Lee Zeldin (R) for his New York House seat said he was motivated to run for office because of "parallels" he saw between President Trump's political rise and Adolf Hitler's ascent to power in Germany. The comments, made in February at a Democratic primary forum in East Marion, N.Y., were captured in a video sent to The Hill from a Republican operative and also posted online in the Facebook page of Southold Town Democratic Committee, a group committed to electing "leaders with Democratic values" in Southold, NY. In the video, Perry Gershon, who previously worked as...
  • It's the anniversary of the 20th of July plot, the unsuccessful bomb attempt to kill Hitler in 1944

    Today is the anniversary of the denouement of the nearly-forgotten "20th of July" plot in 1944, when a courageous, but incredibly quixotic, group of old-fashioned German patriots under the leadership of Army officer Count Claus von Stauffenberg sought to achieve a compromise end to World War II in Europe by assassinating Adolf Hitler in his headquarters at Rastenburg, East Prussia, preparatory to opening peace negotiations with the western allies (i.e., excluding Russia). The conspiracy involved a number of high-ranking officers, including Generals Ludwig Beck and Friedrich Obert, but collapsed when a bomb placed by Stauffenberg himself failed to kill Hitler,...

    The Federalist ^ | 07/14/2018 | Nathanael Blake
    The Nazi fascination with fantastical science and the occult has long made for spectacular entertainment. From Indiana Jones trying to save the Holy Grail and the Ark of the Covenant from the Nazis, to comic-book super-soldier serums, to the reoccurring use of supernatural charlatanism to dupe the Germans in Hogan’s Heroes, pop culture has propagated the idea of the Nazis as obsessed with mysticism and mad science. And pop historians have eagerly provided background for these tales.How much of it is true?Quite a lot, it turns out. Recently released in paperback by Yale University Press, Eric Kurlander’s book Hitler’s...

    Berlin’s ruins still smoldered as three Soviet military intelligence officers questioned a tall, lithe blonde in 1945. A Red Army lieutenant, the group’s translator, opened the burgundy satin cover of a cheap jewelry box and showed her its contents. Nestled inside were charred human teeth, gold dental crowns and a complete lower jaw. “I took the dental bridge in my hand,” Käthe Heusermann wrote decades later. “I looked for an unmistakable sign. I found it immediately, took a deep breath and blurted out, ‘These are the teeth of Adolf Hitler.’ I was showered with expressions of gratitude.” Within weeks, Heusermann...

    Poland has amended its controversial Holocaust law that made it a crime punishable by up to three years in jail to say “Polish concentration camps,” four months after the law went into effect. Polish lawmakers voted on Wednesday by a vote of 388-25, with five abstentions. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he is pleased that Poland “fully rescinded” clauses in its Holocaust law. “I’m pleased that the Polish government, the parliament, the senate and the president of Poland decided today to fully rescind the clauses that were signed and caused a storm and consternation in Israel and among the international...
  • June 30, 1934: the Night of the Long Knives, Hitler's purge of those standing in his way

    The Night of the Long Knives was a purge that took place in Nazi Germany from June 30 to July 2, 1934, when the Nazi regime carried out a series of political murders. When Hitler rose to power in early 1933, he owed much of his success to the muscle of his Nazi Storm Troopers, the SA, a violent, ruthless army headed by Ernst Röhm, Hitler’s long-time friend. Röhm and his Storm Troopers brought Germany into submission by gaining control of the streets gangster-style and violently eliminating Hitler’s political enemies. However, a threatening, revolutionary force was no longer useful now...

    A NEW Syria is emerging from the rubble of war. In Homs, which Syrians once dubbed the “capital of the revolution” against President Bashar al-Assad, the Muslim quarter and commercial district still lie in ruins, but the Christian quarter is reviving. Churches have been lavishly restored; a large crucifix hangs over the main street. “Groom of Heaven”, proclaims a billboard featuring a photo of a Christian soldier killed in the seven-year conflict. In their sermons, Orthodox patriarchs praise Mr Assad for saving one of the world’s oldest Christian communities.

    It's time to address the “Nazi, Hitler, Holocaust issue.” I’m a Jew. It’s time to stand up to these mentally disturbed, liberal bullies, frauds and exaggerators. Nothing compares to the Nazis. Nothing is the Holocaust. No one is Hitler. Stop using those words, you frauds. Do you know how ridiculous you sound? You’re destroying the meaning of such powerful words. “Never forget” will soon be forgotten, because you’ve trivialized the meaning of the words “Nazi, Hitler and Holocaust.” There is no comparison in this modern word to those horrible words and deeds (except for radical Islamic terrorism- which Democrats don’t...

    Seriously, the Democrat party should embrace this guy as their poster child candidate. ======================================= He believes in instituting a patriarchal system, with women under the authority of men; he supports abolishing age restrictions for marriage and laws against marital rape; he believes that white supremacy is a “system that works,” that Hitler was a “good thing for Germany,” and that incest should be legalized, at least in the context of marriage. And at one point in a conversation with The Post, he seemed to express admiration for the system run by the Taliban in Afghanistan, noting that the country’s birthrate...

    Meghan McCain slammed President Trump on Tuesday for his "buddy-buddy" meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, whom she denounced as a "dictator." The cohost of ABC’s “The View” and daughter of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said that, though she was initially on board with the summit, she was disturbed by the symbolism of both nations’ flags flying together in Singapore. “This is a totalitarian communist dictator in the same vein as Hitler — murder, enslavement, imprisonment, sexual violence, starvation, forced abortions, political, racial, religious persecution,” McCain said. “We are not the same,” she continued. “[Kim’s North Korea] is...

  • Tests on skull fragment cast doubt on Adolf Hitler suicide story

    Bone with bullet hole found by Russians in 1946 came from an unknown woman, not the German leader Tests on skull fragment cast doubt on Adolf Hitler suicide In countless biographies of Adolf Hitler the story of his final hours is recounted in the traditional version: committing suicide with Eva Braun, he took a cyanide pill and then shot himself on 30 April 1945, as the Russians bombarded Berlin. Some historians expressed doubt that the Führer had shot himself, speculating that accounts of Hitler's death had been embellished to present his suicide in a suitably heroic light. But a fragment...

    French researchers claim to have put an end to conspiracy theories surrounding the death of Adolf Hitler, after a study of his teeth proved he definitely died after taking cyanide and shooting himself in the head in Berlin in 1945. The researchers reached their conclusion after they were given rare access to fragments of Hitler’s teeth which have been held in Moscow since the end of World War II. "The teeth are authentic, there is no possible doubt. Our study proves that Hitler died in 1945," said professor Philippe Charlier. "We can stop all the conspiracy theories about Hitler. He...

    Liberals can go marching at the drop of a hat over any causes they feel are going to make them feel better about themselves at the time - even if they don’t have a grasp of the public policy issue which is the central purpose for that particular march. In this case, The Left was marching against the Left. Yes, liberals have been trying their darnedest to hang the Nazis on the Right since Hitler murdered six million Jews. But they were the National Socialist German Worker’s Party. But the Left always wants to rewrite history to make it in...

    Pinal County Sheriff's Office says an electronic road sign showed an offensive message overnight in San Tan Valley. Several ABC15 viewers reached out Friday morning regarding a road sign along Hunt Highway that said "Hail Hitler". According to PCSO, the department first received a call about the sign around 2:30 a.m. A private company reportedly owns the sign and Pinal County officials say they were unable to reach the company for help at that time. They also reached out to Pinal County's public works department for help, but they too were unable to turn off the sign. Crews eventually covered...
