It Can Happen Here

The gates of Auschwitz, one of the infamous Nazi concentration camps.

The gates of Auschwitz, one of the infamous Nazi concentration camps.

“How the Jews Defeated Hitler” is the title of a new book by Dr. Benjamin Ginsberg PhD, subtitled “Exploding the Myth of Jewish Passivity in the Face of Nazism.”  The title is counter-intuitive because, as is well known, the Nazis murdered six million Jews in Europe during the course of a deliberate genocide that has since become known as the Holocaust.

The author is a professor of political science and is chair of the Center for Advanced Governmental Studies at Johns Hopkins University and the book is more than just a history of that horrific period of history. It is not that long ago. I was a child at the time so, within the living memory of the survivors, their children and grandchildren, as well as others like myself around the world, it is living history.

The value of the book is the way it explains how many of the Jews of Europe, particularly those herded into ghettos, failed to grasp what was happening. “It was initially difficult for most Jews to believe that the Germans actually intended to kill them all.”

 

Another major factor was that the Nazis ensured that they were disarmed and unable to defend themselves, as were others who opposed the regime.

Where resistance fighters emerged, Ginsburg notes that “Germany relied, especially in Western Europe, on the help of local police forces to deal with partisans, and, especially in France and Holland, whose local police were quite helpful.” In occupied France, “The French police helpfully compiled a card index of all the Jews of Paris by name, street, occupation, and nationality.”

Therein lies the fears and concerns of Americans as they slowly come to realize that their government not only knows where they live, but a great deal of information about them courtesy of the Internal Revenue Service, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Homeland Security, the National Security Agency, right on down to their local law enforcement authorities.

If or when Obamacare is fully implemented, anonymous bureaucrats will be able to “target” selected Americans who are seeking medical care for death simply by denying it. No need to set up concentration camps to kill them en mass. Just as the little girl who needed a lung transplant that was initially denied by the Secretary of Health and Human Services, individuals identified as “patriots” or other enemies of the state could simply be allowed to die.

So, yes, it can happen here

Excellent article. Here in the US, they waged a campaign to marginalize any dissent or opposition to their schemes all along.

    Great history post Bull that many could learn from! Just take a look at what’s going on in Egypt right now. Yeah; I know…the same as about a year ago (they want the pres to step down after a US backed coup that put the bastard in office), but there is much to learn from this infanticide.

    The people are taking to the streets in he millions and protesting an unjust gov. (about the only thing we can learn from the camel jockeys) The folks in Egypt are willing to put their lives on the line to get the gov the believe is best for them (our opinion is irrelevant here). So where the f*ck is all the protest is the strongest and once most greatest nation in the world?? Egypt has been around (recorded history) for around 5,000 years and their folks are still willing to die to get the gov they want by protesting and swarming the streets. Here in the good ole USA we don’t do shit. We write articles that preach to the choir, we vote, we bitch and moan, but f*cking nothing changes and the majority of our asses are so spoiled we’re not willing to put our cushy life style on the line for a better nation.

    I never thought I’d learn anything from the muzzie bastards, but I must admit I believe I was wrong by what’s going on in Egypt. Obama be damned for helping putting the Bros with no Fro’s in power and now preaching peaceful protest. WTF?? The Egyptian army is half a million strong and armed with superior US weaponry, so what exactly is the end run our Pharaoh is looking for over there??? Only God knows, but kudos to those towel heads willing to give up their lives for a better country.

      P.S. The muzzie bastards idea of a better Egypt STILL means the destruction of the Jews and the Christians, but there is a lesson to be learned if you look deep enough.

      Dave, very ironic isn’t it? I was thinking about that too. When they have problems with Morsi usurping all the power in Egypt and take to the streets; here they demand he usurp even more – the faster the better, and they cheer him for it. Its crazy.

        Bull, it is so ironic I”m lost! And what is our towel head Pharaoh doing currently? Helping the terrorist to overthrow Syria. WOW…I’m still confused how so many did not see the extreme danger of allowing the Sumbitch to get elected and it seems way too many still haven’t caught on. Ovomit is the King of Chaos and Destruction!!

    World-class post,Bull. Take that bow. The similarities of Hitler’s Germany and Obama’s U.S.S.A. of today are clear enough even Little Stevie Wonder can see them.

    Good post Bull. I watched a show on the military channel the other night. They run WWII stuff all the time and so much about Hitler. This particular episode about the mind of Hitler this time I glued onto it. It is shocking how much he and the King have in common and their character traits. I’m waiting for the mass killing of Americans. His tyranny goes further every day inch by inch and one day we’re going to be in the history of Hitler and other dictators. I see no way else this is going. I pray constantly that he will be stopped but I see no one doing a thing to put an end to the King’s evil.

      Pepp, hope your feeling better, good seeing you post, I don’t get too many channels so I don’t get that channel. It should give anyone pause. I agree and don’t see much to slow the critter down.

      I did see a documentary from real footage behind the German lines which showed just how arrogant and unapologetic they were. It was like they were on tour claiming whatever they wanted along the way, having a ball trouncing through Europe. That elitist superiority.That reminds me of the same arrogance I see in his movement. SO full of pride and arrogance, just get out of our way — do yourselves a favor attitude.

      One can only guess what is going through that bastid’s swelled head. In that film what really revealed their mindset was the letters they sent home. The arrogance is the same. When will it stop with him? He has his SS and brownshirts and they just cut a path wherever they go. That’s the scary part. government is one big political tool(weapon) to him. IRS was no accident. It all fits like a glove, its the same.

        Bull,

        I can’t stay online very long at any one time. I’m still not feeling good and on top of it, I now have bursitis in my right shoulder which is killing me. I get off and on, resting in between. Also had two swollen ankles and had to stay off my feet for several days. I’m trying to get back into the swing of things, but it’s sketchy.

        You sure got it right about the O’s brown shirts in the form of every branch of his administration. it is scary to say the least.

        Like I said the Military channel runs quite a bit of WWII and the Hitler regime. They were so arrogant and the people fell for him not looking at what he really was. Sounds familiar. I also like the episodes I’ve watched where our military would find a concentration camp where gassing was going on and bring the whole German town nearby to see the horrors and then help clean it up. A woman’s voice says in this episode, “we are all guilty now”. I can’t help but think the same way. The people ignored what they had to know what was going on when gray ashes fell all over their houses every hour of the day. How could they not have known?

    Bull, I’ve been thinking more about this great post of yours and realized I gave no credit to the Jews that stood up to Hitler and fought him the best they could. Their underground world saving thousands of Jews (including children) and their militias that hit Germany’s forces all they could.

    There is a great lesson to be learned from the brave, strong back of the Jews that stood against a psycho dictator to be learned by so many of us here in the states. Hitler did everything he could to demoralize and commit genocide on the Jews, but they showed superior bravery not allowing that to happen. I hope there are enough Americans that have the same fortitude as those Jews.

      Dave great point, I sure hope that there are enough to resist. When people say they still have hope, it’s important to understand where the hope really lies. And those are the ones who know evil when they see it.

    Now we have school children questioning their parents about obamacare and reporting back to the teachers union – the third reich methods are flourishing where children report their parents and siblings – neighbors report neighbors – workers report co-workers – at one time, the most criminal convictions were for failure to report a person you knew was a dissident. For if it prospers, none dare call it treason – is the tattooing coming?

      Gene, except you cannot report an illegal alien, that is a big no no. They will probably enact all of it at once. You mean you wouldn’t be tickled to wear the O-tattoo?(I bet someone has to pass a test to be able to get one of those) But if a parent reports a child, now that’s a problem. Can’t do that. While they’re at it, just call everything a “civil right” too – from breastfeeding to birth control to viagra.

    Very good article. Remember, there were a handful of Jews with antiquated poor quality weapons from the 19th Century, that fought a delaying action, which brought the attention of Churchill. They knew that they would be killed. They were afraid but did it, anyway. That, is the purest form of Courage. It saddens me that no bronze monument stands for their courage. They held the “elite” Nazi Reich, at bay for nearly a full week! The Ubermenchen, were afraid of the little Jews that had guns and were shooting at them. Remember this teaching a rabbi taught me (I’m a Sicilian/Catholic that reads the Talmud): If you break a corner of the matzoh, you have broken the entire matzoh. You are held payable and accountable for your actions. Multiply this to the six millionth power. Many Jews I have known, were regular people that had a belief in the same Almighty as I have, and many were very tough people. I even knew an old man that in his younger days was with Murder Inc., and was a very nice man. It was said that he was to be feared in his younger days. My point, never take people for granted. Trying to destroy Jews may give unexpected problems because, if you believe in a Buddist monk, you are a Buddist; If you believe in a Muslim imam, you are a Muslim; If you believe in a Jewish rabbi, you are a Jew. The guy crucified on the cross by Romans, was a rabbi. He was not a wall-flower, and was a tough guy in his own right. A construction carpenter, befriended by tough fishing captains (violent fighters), tax collectors (fist fighters), and others that were not given credit and were tossed to the outer fringes of the socio-political realm as it existed back then. If anything were to happen in America today, it would cause some very bitter fighting as many will stick together.
