In a recent Media Matters article about the ‘endless Nazi references’ made by the right-wing commentators, an effort was made to outline the many ways the tea party conservatives were demonizing the Obama regime by relentlessly comparing him to Hilter’s Nazi Germany.
The first article gives a run down of characteristic complaints voiced by the tea party:
“Clinging to persecution fantasies that seem to grow darker each year, conservative voices continue to hype doomsday scenarios in which President Obama is scheming to confiscate firearms, socialize American medicine, silence his critics through brute political force, and wage violent class warfare. Allegedly under siege at every turn as their freedoms are stripped away, conservatives embrace an imagined status as perennial victims.”
This is a classic technocrat gas lighting double speak propaganda tactic: point out all the legitimate issues, presenting them as absolute lunacy–like they aren’t actually happening–anyone who points these things out are considered conspiracy nuts, when in reality these are very legitimate concerns.
Let’s take some time to decipher this paragraph line by line and compare it with real-life examples to determine if they are radical exaggerations made by alarmists.
” . . . President Obama is scheming to confiscate firearms . . . ”
FIrst, the implication in this sentence casts the president as a nefarious character, laughing maniacally in a dark, smoky room engaged in a strategic and surreptitious scheme–that may be a little dramatic, but let’s take a step back and examine some recent events where guns were an issue. In order to gauge the situation at hand here, a certain frame of reference is required that aids in getting the bigger picture. What is at stake here? What does gun confiscation mean? What is sacrificed?
The second amendment is at stake, the piece in the Bill of Rights that specifically states:
“A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”
Gun confiscation means that law abiding citizens will not be able to protect themselves against potential harm, theft, or violence that might befall them. In fact, ex secret service agent Dan Bongino said that in his former years as a law enforcement official he never had to arrest someone possessing a firearm, who was a law abiding citizen, because those people are simply exercising their god-given right to self protection. Bongino went on to state that gun control isn’t about controlling guns, it’s about controlling people. He observed that the president probably wouldn’t feel comfortable with a ‘gun-free zone’ placed 360 degrees around his body. Bongino concluded by stressing the fact that guns don’t have rights, but people do.
The Jews for the preservation of Firearms point out that American gun control laws are similar to the Nazi gun control laws, and this is even more evident when one considers the assault rifle ban that was proposed by Senator Feinstein, which holds exemptions for certain elites. That was the case in Nazi Germany when the first gun control laws were passed for everyone except ‘loyal Nazis’.
Adolf Hitler once said:
“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject race to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sin qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty.”
Recently a New York Mayor, John C. Tkazyik withdrew his membership from the Mayors Against Illegal Firearms, because he discovered their agenda to confiscate all guns. He admitted that New York’s strict gun laws did nothing to decrease violence, and in fact left citizens vulnerable to violent attacks. He stated:
“I don’t believe, never have believed and never will believe that public safety is enhanced by encroaching on our right to bear arms and I will not be a part of any organization that does.”
The second point raised in this paragraph concerns the speculation of pushing the United States into a ‘socialist paradise’ with the proposal of universal health care. The point is raised in the above paragraph ignoring the state of affairs already present in this country–it is already a socialist state, and far from a ‘paradise’.
” . . . socialize American medicine . . .”
The architect of the Affordable Health Care Act, Ezekiel Emanuel admitted that the purpose of the bill was to destroy the insurance market. Emanuel states:
“insurance companies as we know them are about to die” because, he claims like most corporate-controlled media puppets that the old system is too inefficient and even though people think they might be getting a good deal, they’re really not–no matter what, because they are furtively being exploited.
The President stated numerous times that despite the bill becoming law, everyone who so desired would be able to keep their doctor and their plan, but after it was discovered this was a blatant lie, the script changed, and the talking points morphed to:
“Why would you want to keep your doctor? Especially when the state, in all its magnificent glory, can and will provide the best care stolen tax-payer money can provide!”
The third point raised in the above paragraph is this:
” . . . silence his critics through brute political force . . . ”
The first amendment has never been so under attack in a complex, multi-faceted attack on personal liberties that is unprecedented. The IRS did, in fact audit and specifically target tea party groups, which has been demonstrated in congressional hearings. Free speech has been violated in many ways: the renewal of the patriot act, and the initiation of the NDAA which gives the President the right to indefinitely detain anyone deemed a threat to national security, the continuation of the concentration camp at Guantanamo Bay–force-feeding hunger strike protestors redressing grievance over religious persecution, violent attacks on peaceful protesters from riot police, who utilized surplus military-grade weaponry from Iraq, during the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations, and the G20 conferences in Pennsylvania, the creation of ‘free-speech zones’, persecution of whistleblowers, the rampant privacy violations of the NSA, and the infamous ‘kill lists’ just to name a few examples of our darling leaders’ ‘change we can believe in’.
The fourth point brought up in the paragraph is:
” . . . and wage violent class warfare . . . ”
This point is realized if anyone watches MSNBC for at least five minutes. Seriously, try to watch that mind-numbing garbage for more than a minute without feeling nauseous.
The truth is, anyone who takes a close look at the leadership in this country–not limiting the inquiry to Obama, and studies it carefully, will find that the government is not just comparable to the Nazis–it is, in fact worse.
The conservative pundits who complain about Obama being a Nazi are really only hitting the tip of the iceberg with their criticism. There is an unmistakable condition of fascism in this country, what John Perkins refers to in his book, Confessions of an Economic Hitman, ‘the Corporatocracy’. The argument has cleverly been established to be confined within the context of ‘rich verses poor’. The brute reality is that corporate interests have mastered the system in such a way to literally game the international economy through various criminal methods that would make a true narcissist or sociopath pause with awe in genuine appreciation, that is assuming he was privy to the complex theories of international business and economics.
You don’t have to be an expert in the intricacies of finance to be mad as hell about how they are exploiting people domestically and abroad, even a laymen should be able to understand that a vast conspiracy amongst the world’s top banks to manipulate interests rates, e.g., the LIBOR scandal, to earn huge record-breaking profits at the expense of the taxpayers is not a good thing.
The criminal takeover of this republic was orchestrated by the same technocratic trans nationalist elites who ran the Nazi party, and the Communist party. They’ve engineered a sure-fire recipe for disaster in this country under the clever guise of ‘progress’, and what Charlotte Iserbyt defines as the ‘deliberate dumbing down of America’ has ensured the success of those who wish to wield power with an iron fist, cleverly concealed with a velvet glove over the masses who willing surrender their god-give rights for ‘the greater good’.
