America is following Nazi Germany's lead

    Considering the true colors displayed by the authoritarian neo-con poster peanut gallery here on GTPI in the Chesterfield thread, it has dawned on me today what's going on with this country as a whole.

    The US is going the exact same direction as Nazi Germany did during the late 1920's and 1930's. People want a dictator in the White House so they can feel good about harming people with differing political opinions, instead of guaranteeing freedom of speech and opinion and taking responsibility for their own actions (or inaction) that led to the current environment. The recent cheering for the incarceration of "political prisoners" is a scary development in a country with a Constitution that guarantees people's freedom to speak their minds against others and the government without fear of retribution, even if their opinions may be unpopular. A modern day Night of the Long Knives can't be far off.

    Read the below short form history of Nazi Germany and tell me you don't see a ton of similarities to America's current conditions and trajectory, then read more in depth at your leisure. Political prisoners placed in reeducation camps, high unemployment, economy hobbled by bad war policy and overspending and inflation, political unrest and high divisiveness, persecution of scapegoats to shift blame away from bad policy and apathy, etc.

    http://www.history.co.uk/explore-history/ww2/nazi-germany.html

    The people of Germany elected Hitler. He didn't claim power through a coup. They lined up behind him in blaming opposing groups for the demise of the country, instead of looking at themselves as just part of the problem. They wanted to silence dissent and avoid addressing the real issues facing their country. They fell for the "lesser of two evils" mantra that led them into depression and foolish wars, fell for false flag operations on their own soil, fell for freedom killing legislation that supplanted the rule of law, and many other parallels that can easily be seen in this country right now. The German people WANTED a dictator and the people that were really in charge gave it to them. After all, dictators allow people to stop thinking for themselves and I see plenty of that on this forum and elsewhere. Those that didn't want a dictator were summarily silenced by neighborly snitches and federal gestapo.

    Many posters here and across the country want a dictator and are working to fulfill Hitler's vow in modern day America:

    "At the risk of appearing to talk nonsense, I tell you that the Nazi movement will go on for 1,000 years!”

    Indeed, Chancellor. Indeed. The parallels are hard to ignore. People simply want to be told what to do and avoid taking responsibility for their own actions, particularly when they can consider themselves part of the "winning team", instead of part of the problem. Even if the winning team is going to lead them into ruin just like the other team. Hitler's National Socialist Party was the winning team. Go team...

    Dude, your post is 4 years late, and we are about to fix what we almost mistakenly did to follow the nazi history.

    Conservatives, and most definitely Chick fil A sure knows and understands what you are saying, though.... Labeled hate speech, shooters gunning for folks because of peer pressure and politiks..... Good thing we can put a stop to it this fall, if enough sane people are left to stop Obama.

    Divisiveness? That is Obamas legacy.... OWS now openly stating they are out to destroy our capitalist system and install communism, ...... You do know Hitler and the communists were arm in arm for quite a while, as they agreed on nearly everything, ideologically...

    You are right though, we are mimicking nazi germany in many ways, just not about which side you think is doing it... Now you see why Germans went along with it? Not enough right wingers to educate folks and stop it.

    The Ronulan cult of personality has a closer resemblance to the followers of Hitler or Mao than any portion of the GOP base does. But I don't expect Paulbots to see that considering where their heads are stuck.

    I'm getting real tired of hearing comparisons between us and Nazi Germany. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

    Comparing this great country to Nazi Germany is just plain wrong, and is an insult to the freest country on Earth.

    NOBODY in America wants a dictator!

    We are NOT headed in the same direction as Nazi Germany.
    Never have been and never will be.

    Very soon Obama will be thrown on the trash heap of history and will take his rightful place as one of the worst presidents in history.

    Then this country will recover and prosper once again.

    All these armchair anarchists and wanna-be libertarians will be proven wrong about their dire predictions for this country.

    Oh, and g19g20, just because you were able to get the other thread closed, I still expect you to either show where I've threatened you, or to recant your baseless allegation.

    Not often you see it fulfilled in the first post though. :whistling:

    I'd say of this entire rant, this is probably the most offensive:

    So G19G20 thinks "many posters here and across the country" (leave aside the clumsy phrasing...how many posters are *not* simultaneously "here" and "across the country?") are working to entrench the Nazi movement here in the US?

    First, while I'm sure on the Ron Paul message boards calling someone who disagrees with you a Nazi is de rigueur, here in the real world it's actually a pretty evil thing to do. It isn't a sign of being historically aware. It isn't funny or rhetorically valid. It *is*, however, a sign of callow thinking. If a person cannot tell the difference between a republic with numerous safeguards against government to mess around with people's rights and an ethno-centric socialist thugocracy then that person has no business being in polite company.

    So to G19G20 I'll offer a handy rule of thumb: when a person is not out there in favor of murdering millions of people in concentration camps to create a global Reich headed by white men, you really shouldn't be calling him a Nazi. And if you're so stupid that you think calling him a Nazi is a good way to get attention or make yourself sound more important than you really are, then, like Gore Vidal, you need to be "socked in the goddam face:"

    I saw that live on TV when it first aired. Too bad the clip left out when Buckley got up, walked over to Vidal, punched him in the face and knocked him out of his chair onto his ass. It was awesome.

    As someone in majored in history and studied the Weimar Republic and Nazi Germany extensively, I have to say there are parallels to the fascist movement that swept through Europe.

    Does that mean its exactly the same? No, not at all, but there are many similarities.

    As for wanting a dictator, remember that Fascism is a progressive liberal intellectual movement based on the idea of a benevolent dictator.

    Listen to the pro Obama crowd sometime- Michael Moore for example comes on Bill Mahrs show saying Obama needs to jut sign executive orders and bypass congress; Obama himself said much the same thing. The LOVE the idea of dictator.

    The parallels of a worldwide economic slowdown, high national debt, playing up race divisions etc. - there's soooo many similarities.

    I like your positive outlook and hope you are correct.

    Read the link this time: http://www.fff.org/freedom/fd0403a.asp

    As has been pointed out to you in the past, Adolph was not elected to power by a majority, he was appointed by a man fearful of a vocal minority.

    Kind of like what the Trojan horse delegates are attempting with their "Great Leader".

    It's humorously entertaining that you've made another historical blunder while failing to look in a mirror. Bonus troll points for that one. :rofl:

    If you haven't been paying attention and don't know your history, let me fill you in.

    Hitler was able to target the jews, partially because of general anti-semitism but also as a matter of class warfare in a time of economic unrest. "crystal night" to put it in English, was largely aimed at Jewish businesses.

    Jews were "the filthy rich that were hoarding wealth and keeping it from the people"

    Sound familiar????

    "1%ers"????

    Obama is tacitly approving the occupy movement and himself is blaming the rich and even small businesses who "didn't build that themselves"

    That is why I say that anyone not voting to remove him from office is duplicitous.

    The best part is, with Ron Paul's (snicker, snicker) "history of getting support in Congress for his bills (snicker,snicker)"

    The only way he could get anything done would be to establish a dictatorship.

    All his great plans would require the cooperation of Congress, and I really don't see that one happening.
