The Degradation of the Right Continues- Episode about a Million and a Half

Most of my coverage of the right on this blog has been in the form of short excerpts followed by ridicule.  Really, that is all the lies and smears that make up Conservative thinking deserve, but occasionally, I find something I want to deal with at greater length.  Here is an example that I think calls for extended treatment, as it shows the malignant intellectual bankruptcy that makes up the core of Conservative cant.  It is the second part of an extended hallucination about the connection between the Nazis and American liberals, written by an ignorant, stupid man by the name of Ellis Washington, formerly of the Rutherford Institute, an organization dedicated to promoting fantasies about the alleged persecution of Christians in the United States.  Anyway, let's get on with it.  What follows is most of this article; I've left out the most boring parts.

Over the last decade or so, I have taken an active interest in Germany, from its modern inception at the hands of Kaiser Wilhelm I and Bismarck in 1871, up to the demise of the Third Reich in 1945.  I cannot claim to be a trained scholar on this subject, but I have read fifty or a hundred books on the subject, and think I can speak with some confidence about what happened.  Before getting to this execrable pile of nonsense, I just want to state that I am posting this information because I believe there should be a record kept of this sort of evil, not because I believe that many people will want to immerse themselves in it.  So, if you get a little past this point and decided that this sickening garbage is beyond what you want to expose yourselves to, I won't be surprised.

Well, hold your breath; in we go:


"According to the Holocaust Encyclopedia and the U.S. Holocaust Memorial archives the so-called 'Night of the Long Knives' or Rohm's Purge took place "between June 30 and July 2, 1934, the Nazi Party leadership, on the order of Nazi Party Leader and Reich Chancellor Adolf Hitler, purged the leadership of the Nazi paramilitary formation, the Sturmabteilungen (Storm Troopers; SA). The Nazi leaders took advantage of the purge to kill other political enemies, primarily on the German nationalist right... Known as the "Night of the Long Knives" 

The implication being that Hitler attacked the German right because he was left wing.  This is one of the great lies of the American right; Hitler defined his party around opposition to Communism and Socialism, and allied himself with other right wing parties, as all decent human beings know.  If you are not familiar with it, the "Night of the Long Knives" involved the murder of about a thousand people who were seen by Hitler as threats to his power within the Nazi party; they were right wing because all Nazis were right wing.  Any left wing opposition figures had already been either killed or imprisoned in concentration camps by Hitler within months   after he took power in January, 1933.

"In order to hide, to deceive the many and obvious historical precedents of Hitler and the concurrent Democrat Socialist Party, particularly under the administrations of Woodrow Wilson and FDR, LBJ and Obama, their Progressive consensus view of history scrupulously hides any and all historical comparisons and similarities to their Socialist political cousins in Germany"

None of which exist, except in the malicious propaganda of the right, as anyone who continues reading shall see.

"...yet one obvious Nazi tactic called the Night of the Long Knives has so many political connections to the politics of today, only the most partisan or willfully ignorant can be blind to these similarities."

Because Obama has so often resorted to the wholesale murder of his fellow party members.

"One undeniable fact of history is that Adolph Hitler and the Nazis...derived almost all of their demonic ideas from the past, from history especially from the Democrat Socialist Party in America, or as I more accurately call them "Holocaust Democrats."

It would have been far more decent if they had derived their ideas from the future, I guess.  Of course, we need not observe the fact that the Republicans derive their ideas from their own past: the same mindless service to the rich which has been their only raison d'etre for a century now.

"President Obama a Democrat Socialist, like Chancellor Hitler, a National Socialist,"

Oh, Obama is just like Hitler.  Right.  Within six months of taking power he made all other parties illegal, did away with labor unions, dissolved the Congress and got the new one, elected in an environment of partisan thuggery in which all meetings of other parties were broken up by mobs of armed thugs (surely, you remember the numerous incidents when Obama resorted to this,) to give him absolute power.  Then, he opened concentration camps all over the country where he imprisoned virtually everyone in political life who opposed him.  Well, that's what Hitler did, so I guess Obama did it too.

 "...can tolerate no opposition to their tyrannical power and thus through political expediency in his rise to power Hitler tolerated and used his SA Chief of Staff Ernst Rohm and his longtime friend to exploit for political ends his expanded force of nearly three million men, nevertheless after 18 months in office Hitler was now ready to solidify his absolute rule as Germany's messiah by murdering the only man who had comparable power to him, Ernst Rohm."

Just like Obama.  Remember him murdering Joe Biden, Hillary and other leaders of the Democratic party?    Mr. Washington continues:

"Likewise Obama having won a stunning and surprising political victory over the Democrat presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton in 2008 and 2012 must now eradicate (metaphorically speaking) his political enemy from obtaining power in 2016 by leaking embarrassing info about the Benghazi murders and highly classified email Hillary which she her staff held and sent on her personal computer server. These Obama tactics have caused Hillary to drop so precipitously in the polls that its caused her rival, the Socialist Bernie Sanders (D-VT) to come within 7 points of Hillary in the latest polls."

So:  Obama, and not the treacherous Republicans, is behind the Benghazi lies and the persecution of Hillary for releasing "highly classified e-mail," something which, of course never happened.  And by the way, undercutting a fellow politician is apparently the same thing as murdering them.  If so, why are the 47 Republicans who wrote a seditious letter to Israel attempting to destroy an Obama political initiative not in prison?  Actually, I've been wondering about that one for a while, but let's just move on here.

"According to the Holocaust Encyclopedia, "Hitler tasked Himmler and the SS with carrying out the purge. On June 28, Hitler ordered Röhm to assemble the top SA leaders at a Bavarian spa in Bad Wiessee. SS units, commanded by Dachau concentration camp commandant Theodor Eicke, surprised the SA leaders on the morning of June 30 and transported them to Munich's Stadelheim prison. There SS men shot most of them."

Just like Obama.

"Historically speaking deeds of genocidal and unexpected acts of barbarity have always been a favorite tactic by tyrants throughout the ages."

Really?  Who knew?  I thought tyrants worked primarily through free ice cream and pony rides..

"Historical examples comparable to Nazi purges is how at the 1972 Democrat Convention, the party was purged of all so-called "moderate" or "liberals" and the Progressives, Socialists and Communists took over the Democrat Party with their candidate Walter Mondale as their chosen leader."

I.e. Mondale won the nomination.  That is comparable to the murder of a thousand people.  May I note that this happened when Obama was eleven years old, but was already apparently capable of carrying out acts of Hitlerian evil.

"The 1950's vanilla America depicted in TV shows like 'I Love Lucy' or 'Leave it to Beaver' was forever dead in America who under the Democrat Socialists would have her own Night of the Long Knives 40 years after Hitler and the Nazis."

The Democrats killed fifties TV shows!  That's sort of the same as killing real people, I guess. And while we are on the subject, I seem to remember Lucy having a couple of Cuban-American anchor babies! Well, Ricky, in the show, was Cuban, so I suppose Obama should be credited with killing off an imaginary Communist.  That would be okay, I guess.

"...the political, tactical murders by Hitler of June 30-July 2 epitomized a critical period of Nazi era history in regards of the Nazi's willingness to deconstruct the rule of law and the standards of civilized society to use democide (State sponsored genocide of its own citizens) for the advancement of the Nazi Aryan State."

Democide.  Boy, Obama has been up to a lot of that, yes sir.

"Nazi Pretext against Homosexuals, Obama Pretext for Homosexuals"

Same thing, really- I'm sure you can see that.  Taking the exact opposite position proves they are exactly the same.

"The great German historian William Shirer..."

German historian?  Shirer was an American Jew.  I've read The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich a couple of times.  It, and other Shirer works like Berlin Diary, are highly valuable, because as a journalist, Shirer was present at practically all the major events in the history of the Nazi party, from 1933 until he had to leave Germany after it declared war on the U.S. at the end of 1941.  This included the Munich Conference, the surrender at Compiegne and virtually every major speech of Hitler during the period.  However, many of his conclusions have not withstood the test of time, particularly due to the massive German release of millions of pages of internal Nazi government documents in the mid-1990's.

"...in his classic opus on Hitler and the Nazi Era, The Rise and Fall of Third Reich, eloquently described how masterfully Hitler used the tactic of the pretext to take a quantum leap in power acquisition, for example Hitler and Goering's role in the Reichstag fire were just three weeks after being voted Chancellor of German, the German Reichstag (Parliament) building was burned to the ground. Hitler immediately exploited that crises to murder over 1,000 people (mostly his Communist Party rivals) in a series of Nazi show trials as a cover up for his and Goering's crimes of burning down the Reichstag."
`
Among those documents released in the 1990's were communications making it clear that the top Nazis had nothing to do with the Reichstag fire; they certainly exploited it, but they do not appear to have caused it. But in light of the rampant madness underlying Mr. Washington's article, that is the least of his problems with the truth.

 "Cui bono? – Who benefits? Historian Shirer wrote:It will be remembered that the aged President [Hindenburg] was bamboozled into signing the decree the day after the Reichstag fire when Hitler assured him that there was grave danger of a Communist revolution. The decree, which suspended all civil rights, remained in force throughout the time of the Third Reich, enabling the Fuehrer to rule by a sort of continual martial law."

Again, just like Obama, right?  Remember when Obama suspended all civil rights?

"Therefore whether you refer to the Beer Hall Putsch, the Reichstag Fire, the Enabling Acts, the 1935 Nuremberg Laws against the Jews, the Anschluss (annexation) of Austria in March 1938, the Annexation of Czechoslovakia in Sept. 1938, the invasion of Poland on Sept. 1, 1939 which unleashed World War II, etc., etc...it's always the same historical refrain – Pretext – Pogrom (Purge) – Policy. Thus history is an existential pattern of glory and grotesqueries of man. We saw it in Hitler's "continual marital law" or what Lenin's Head of the Red Army, Leon Trotsky would call "the Perpetual Revolution" years before to identify the comprehensive means and ends of Communist Revolution. This is the historical legacy of the Democrat Socialist Party."

First of all, there were indeed those in the Nazi party who did advocate a doctrine similar to that of "perpetual revolution."  The leader of this faction was Ernest Rohm, the main target of the Night of the Long Knives.  Once Hitler was elected, he had no more use for revolution.  In fact, the entire motivation of the Night of the Long Knives was to put an end to this notion.

Secondly, the claim that  "this is the historical legacy of the Democrat Socialist Party." is arrant, malignant nonsense, so far from any connection with the truth that there is no real way to talk about it rationally.

"In modern times (circa 1900 – present) the Communist-Progressive Revolution under the Democrat Socialist Party has since Mondale's 1972 Purge at the Democrat National Convention solidified its power over all 50 states in America, but this fascist revolution, this Cultural Marxist worldview has spread to one degree or another to every country in Europe, Russia, China, the Middle East, South America... all over the world."

On some other planet, perhaps.  Again, this is so far detached from reality that there is no rational way to deal with it.

" In rationalizing the assassinations, Nazi Party officials used Röhm and the SA's known homosexual acts against them for propaganda ends. Goebbels argued that Röhm and his SA's homosexual acts would weakened both the moral strength of the Nazi movement and threatened national security... yet Röhm's death functioned as an self-serving excuse for Himmler and the Criminal Police detective force to increase its persecutions of homosexuals by expanding the types of prosecutable homosexual acts and increasing the punishment for sentences on charges of homosexual acts."

Just like Obama and the "Holocaust Democrats."  Actually, this sounds like the agenda of a large number of members of a different political party in the U.S; we need not mention any names at present.  I'm sure you can figure it out if you are interested.

"Once again Hitler's fascist tactics have been used by the Obama Socialist Party for decades. For example, during the socially turbulent 1960s the radical terrorist organization, Student for a Democratic Society (SDS) had a mantra – The issue is never the issue, the issue is always the revolution."

Bullshit.  I was a member of the SDS for years, and I never heard any such thing.

 "A few year later came the publication of his how-to-book to destroy America, Christianity and Capitalism from within called Rules for Radicals (1971) by the Socialist Saint Saul Alinsky, beloved by both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, the latter who did her senior thesis on Alinsky at Wellesley College (1968). Rule No. 12 says Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it. Alinsky's opus is the strategic and tactical political blueprint for Holocaust Democrats in modern times."

Alinsky.  Of course, people like Ellis rely on the fact that not one American in ten thousand knows a thing about Alinsky, or is aware that no one except a few effete liberal intellectuals like a Wellesley girl might have given a damn about him.  I was present for a lot of what went on in the anti-Vietnam movement, and I can guarantee you that no one cared a whit about Alinsky.  We were too busy reading works by real revolutionaries like Lenin (and turning cop cars over.)

"Finally, Obama's former Chief of Staff and current Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel always said, "Never allow a crisis to go to waste." These and other Socialist tactics and phrases were specifically designed to seize and wield absolute power over their political enemies ('We the People'); they haven't changed since the days of Hitler and the Nazi Party's rise to power in the 1920s-40s."

Bullshit.

"President Obama's policies towards special treatment of homosexuals has caused the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) agenda to expand quickly and exponentially beyond even their wildest dreams."

Just like in Nazi Germany, where they...oh wait, they killed them in Nazi Germany.  Oh well, almost the same, right?  The fact that Obama has done the exact opposite of what Hitler did proves that he is just like Hitler.  That must be clear to everyone.  As this jackass says:

"It doesn't matter what your views are on homosexuality...In the 1930s and 40s Nazi history demonstrated the Nazi pretext against the homosexuals and since 2009 Obama's Holocaust Democrat policies demonstrated a pretext for Homosexuals" 

Amazing.  How do you twist your mind to accept something like that?

"Like Hitler, Obama uses the same tactics of elevating a favored minority group like the LGBT community, illegal aliens, the Feminists, the Abortion Gestapo, or the "Black Lives Matter" Movement and using them to denigrate and deconstruct your real enemies including conservatives, Christians, pro-Israel Jews, the Tea Party, pro-gun Americans, business owners, and generally everyone who believes in American exceptionalism, Veritas (truth), Natural Law and God."

Because that is exactly what Hitler did- elevate favored minority groups over the great majority of Christian, Aryan Germans.  That's exactly what Naziism was all about, in the upside down, lying world of American Conservatives.

So, let me ask you, how does a person even tell a lie so bankrupt?  How does someone twist their mind and their sense of decency this way?  Can they not realize what it means when they can only "justify" their chosen doctrine through turning things on their heads, and fabricating a completely inside out version of world history?

And perhaps more importantly, what does it mean for the future that a very sizable part of the American public has licensed itself to lie and cheat, to engage in any underhanded conduct, to pretend to believe lies, to get what it wants?  And when it utterly ignores the very real fact that it is they who are aping the behavior of their right wing fellow, Hitler, and they who are willingly allowing dictatorship to arise in the United States?

As I said above, I don't expect that very many people made it to the end of  this pile of malignant rubbish.  Thanks to anyone who did.  I wish I could end on a more positive note, but I can't.

Washington can't even get American history right.

He says (twice) that Walter Mondale won the Democratic nomination in 1972. Wrong; he won it in 1984. 1972 was George McGovern's year.

You can always tell what Republicans are guilty of...it's whatever they are accusing Democrats of doing.

Isaac, this, of course, has been a deliberate strategy of the Republican party since the Atwater days. They routinely accuse the Democrats of whatever disgraceful conduct they themselves are engaging in, counting on the press (which has never let them down yet) to treat the whole thing as a he said-she said thing in which each party is simply launching unprovable accusations against the other. This is not a knee jerk response on the part of the Republicans or the press, it is a deliberate, and very successful strategy.
