During the campaign subtle cues suggested that Econazi Germany was not looking forward to God’s Own Prohibitionists’ persuasive candidate winning the election.
Still, literate and rational persons who read the National Socialist program Hitler penned in 1920, his 1924 Mein Kampf, or the 1933 Enabling Act speech to the Reichstag find religious conservative beliefs on just about every page. Germany was 98% Protestant and Catholic when Hitler took office amid applause. Big Pharma needed a belligerent madman to terrify foreign regulators seeking to curb German morphine exports and collect war reparations payments. If Germany’s political leader also frightened pharmaceutical competitors, so much the better. Hitler just happened to suit the purposes of military contractors and drug companies, and the crowds loved him.
Thanks to government schools, most Americans cannot define energy, much less understand its units of measure. If a communist dictatorship manipulates persuasive opinion, the Democratic party will sugarcoat its destructive policies in “settled” mystical pseudoscience and offer it as “Our” Only Hope for Salvation. Sound familiar?
Hitler was Germany’s Jesus Christ in that country’s government circles in 1932 according to Time Magazine (Time 6/6/32 80-81). The same “Our Only Hope” wrapper was stretched over the Nuclear Freeze, SALT talks and unilateral surrender in the 1980s. Today it is Global Warming that demands political coercion as Our Only Hope.
German Christians in 1933 feared commie atheists would gun down their priests and pastors. This exact propaganda was handed to me in a Catholic school when I was eight years old–complete with ink drawings of KGB agents machine-gunning hapless priests. This is the image Trump’s persuasion seeks to trigger by hollering “Nazi.”
Hitler’s party promised Germans Socialism with Christianity preserved intact, as in the altruistic Sermon on the Mount or Bellamy’s “Equality.” Radiovangelists shouted Hitler’s virtues to the heavens over subsidized Volksempfänger radios. Germans wanted to be controlled by initiation of force, but with a white, Aryan Jesus guiding the procession. Donald Trump is the tool chosen by powerful factions to push a similar agenda. Instead of Big Pharma making and exporting drugs, These States are a Big Police State looting and reselling them domestically. The money is the same, and free of taxes.
Now that anyone can read Nationalsocialist writings and see the ominous parallels with American televangelism AND socialism in general, the Republican Party is hard-pressed to hold together its United Front for government jobs and funding. The anti-choice threat to defect to the Tea Party and enlarge its spoiler vote count is not a bluff, hence the popularity of coathanger abortions for Jezebels as public health policy. Yes the international socialists will exploit these similarities while pretending there is a real difference among communo-fascist variants of socialism. Of course Trump will try to distance his party from Hitler’s.
But both looter parties offer us failure: the GOP sells a prohibitionist fascist dictatorship and economic collapse through asset-forfeiture looting, but with legalized energy. The Dems are also pushing that Olde-Tyme collectivized socialism of the Traveller from Altruria, with confiscations, prohibition, crowded prisons… Dems never offered to repeal abortion laws as in Canada, nor repeal pot prohibition. Both parties guarantee continued US involvement in religious wars and terrorism. Only the Libertarian party upholds freedom as opposed to coercion, and has enough spoiler vote clout to repeal bad laws. Our peaceful platform is 13 times smaller than theirs. Anyone can read it in half an hour.
