Liberty Activists, Constitutionalists To Be Treated Same As ISIS Terrorists

rightwingextremists

Kiss the Founding Fathers, your freedom of speech, religion and due process goodbye.  There are growing calls for the removal, restriction and banning of ideas, speech and history the State considers ‘dangerous’.

No point to adding any comment to the following news stories, which are the fruits of Fundamental Transformation, except to say that the massive support for the self-admitted Fabian Socialist/Communist Bernie Sanders makes sense when you come to grips with the fact we have lost the country.

The Founding Fathers Considered Domestic Extremists Today

 

Liberty activists and ISIS will be treated as identical threats

What First Amendment?  The State will tell you what is permitted speech from now on.

Government Arrests Radio Talk Show Host over his comments against FBI abuse at Oregon Wildlife Refuge

Not only has free speech become a four-letter word—profane, obscene, uncouth, not to be uttered in so-called public places—but in more and more cases, the government deems free speech to be downright dangerous and in some instances illegal.

The U.S. government has become particularly intolerant of speech that challenges the government’s power, reveals the government’s corruption, exposes the government’s lies, and encourages the citizenry to push back against the government’s many injustices.

Indeed, there is a long and growing list of the kinds of speech that the government considers dangerous enough to red flag and subject to censorship, surveillance, investigation and prosecution: hate speech, bullying speech, intolerant speech, conspiratorial speech, treasonous speech, threatening speech, incendiary speech, inflammatory speech, radical speech, anti-government speech, right-wing speech, extremist speech, etc.

Yet by allowing the government to whittle away at cherished First Amendment freedoms—which form the backbone of the Bill of Rights—we have evolved into a society that would not only be abhorrent to the founders of this country but would be hostile to the words they used to birth this nation.

Don’t believe me?

Conduct your own experiment into the government’s tolerance of speech that challenges its authority, and see for yourself.

Stand on a street corner—or in a courtroom, at a city council meeting or on a university campus—and recite some of the rhetoric used by the likes of Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, John Adams and Thomas Paine without referencing them as the authors.

For that matter, just try reciting the Declaration of Independence, which rejects tyranny, establishes Americans as sovereign beings, recognizes God as a Supreme power, portrays the government as evil, and provides a detailed laundry list of abuses that are as relevant today as they were 240 years ago.

My guess is that you won’t last long before you get thrown out, shut up, threatened with arrest or at the very least accused of being a radical, a troublemaker, a sovereign citizen, a conspiratorialist or an extremist.

Try suggesting, as Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin did, that Americans should not only take up arms but be prepared to shed blood in order to protect their liberties, and you might find yourself placed on a terrorist watch list and vulnerable to being rounded up by government agents.

“What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms,” declared Jefferson. He also concluded that “the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” Observed Franklin: “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!”

Better yet, try suggesting as Thomas Paine, Marquis De Lafayette, John Adams and Patrick Henry did that Americans should, if necessary, defend themselves against the government if it violates their rights, and you will be labeled a domestic extremist.

“It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from its government,” insisted Paine. “When the government violates the people’s rights,” Lafayette warned, “insurrection is, for the people and for each portion of the people, the most sacred of the rights and the most indispensable of duties.” Adams cautioned, “A settled plan to deprive the people of all the benefits, blessings and ends of the contract, to subvert the fundamentals of the constitution, to deprive them of all share in making and executing laws, will justify a revolution.” And who could forget Patrick Henry with his ultimatum: “Give me liberty or give me death!”

Then again, perhaps you don’t need to test the limits of free speech for yourself. One such test is playing out before our very eyes in Portland, Oregon, where radio “shock jock” Pete Santilli, a new media journalist who broadcasts his news reports over YouTube and streaming internet radio, is sitting in jail.

Santilli, notorious for his controversial topics, vocal outrage over government abuses, and inflammatory rhetoric, is not what anyone would consider an objective reporter. His radio show, aptly titled “Telling You the Truth…Whether You Like It or Not,” makes it clear that Santilli has a viewpoint (namely, that the government has overstepped its bounds), and he has no qualms about sharing it with his listeners.

It was that viewpoint that landed Santilli in jail.

In early January 2016, a group of armed activists, reportedly protesting the federal government’s management of federal lands and its prosecution of two local ranchers convicted of arson, staged an act of civil disobedience by occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Burns, Oregon. Santilli, who has covered such protests in the past, including the April 2014 standoff in Nevada between the Bundy ranching family and the federal government over grazing rights, reported on the occupation in Burns as an embedded journalist, albeit one who was sympathetic to the complaints (although not the tactics) of the occupiers.

When asked to clarify his role in relation to the occupation, Santilli declared, “My role is the same here that it was at the Bundy ranch. To talk about the constitutional implications of what is going on here. The Constitution cannot be negotiated.”

Well, it turns out that the Constitution can be negotiated, at least when the government gets involved.

Long a thorn in the side of the FBI, Santilli was arrested by the FBI following its ambush and arrest of key leaders of the movement. He was charged, along with the armed resistors, with conspiracy to impede federal officers from discharging their duties by use of force, intimidation, or threats—the same charge being levied against those who occupied the refuge—which carries a maximum sentence of six years in prison.

Notably, Santilli is the only journalist among those covering the occupation to be charged with conspiracy, despite the fact that he did not participate in the takeover of the refuge, nor did he ever spend a night on the grounds of the refuge, nor did he ever represent himself as anything but a journalist covering the occupation.

Of course, the government doesn’t actually believe that 50-year-old Santilli is an accomplice to any criminal activity.

Read between the lines and you’ll find that what the government is really accusing Santilli of is employing dangerous speech. As court documents indicate, the government is prosecuting Santilli solely as a reporter of information. In other words, they’re making an example of him, which is consistent with the government’s ongoing efforts to intimidate members of the media who portray the government in a less than favorable light.

 

…That the government is choosing to target Santilli for prosecution, despite the fact that they do not recognize new media journalists as members of the mainstream media, signals a broadening of the government’s efforts to suppress what it considers dangerous speech and stamp out negative coverage.The message is clear: whether a journalist is acting alone or is affiliated with an established news source, the government has no qualms about subjecting them to harassment, arrest, jail time and trumped up charges if doing so will discourage others from openly opposing or exposing the government.

You see, the powers-that-be understand that if the government can control speech, it controls thought and, in turn, it can control the minds of the citizenry.

Where the government has gone wrong is in hinging its case against Santilli based solely on his incendiary rhetoric, which is protected by the First Amendment and which bears a striking resemblance to disgruntled patriots throughout American history.

Here’s what Santilli said: “What we need, most importantly, is one hundred thousand unarmed men and women to stand together. It is the most powerful weapon in our arsenal.”

Now compare that with the call to action from Joseph Warren, a leader of the Sons of Liberty and a principal figure within the American Revolution: “Stain not the glory of your worthy ancestors, but like them resolve never to part with your birthright; be wise in your deliberations, and determined in your exertions for the preservation of your liberties. Follow not the dictates of passion, but enlist yourselves under the sacred banner of reason; use every method in your power to secure your rights.”

Indeed, Santilli comes across as relatively docile compared to some of our nation’s more outspoken firebrands.

Santilli: “I’m not armed. I am armed with my mouth. I’m armed with my live stream. I’m armed with a coalition of like-minded individuals who sit at home and on YouTube watch this.”

Now compare that to what George Washington had to say: “Unhappy it is, though, to reflect that a brother’s sword has been sheathed in a brother’s breast and that the once-happy plains of America are either to be drenched with blood or inhabited by slaves. Sad alternative! But can a virtuous man hesitate in his choice?”

And then there was Andrew Jackson, a hothead if ever there was one. He came of age in the early days of the republic, served as the seventh president of the United States, and was not opposed to shedding blood when necessary: “Peace, above all things, is to be desired, but blood must sometimes be spilled to obtain it on equable and lasting terms.”

This is how freedom rises or falls.

There have always been those willing to speak their minds despite the consequences. Where freedom hangs in the balance is when “we the people” are called on to stand with or against individuals who actually exercise their rights and, in the process, push the envelope far enough to get called out on the carpet for it.

Do we negotiate the Constitution, or do we embrace it, no matter how uncomfortable it makes us feel, no matter how hateful or ugly it gets, and no matter how much we may dislike its flag-bearers?

Comedian Lenny Bruce laid the groundwork for the George Carlins that would follow in his wake: foul-mouthed, insightful, irreverent, incredibly funny, and one of the First Amendment’s greatest champions who dared to “speak the unspeakable” about race, religion, sexuality and politics. As Village Voice writer Nat Hentoff attests, Bruce was “not only a paladin of free speech but also a still-penetrating, woundingly hilarious speaker of truth to the powerful and the complacent.”

Bruce died in 1966, but not before being convicted of alleged obscenity for challenging his audience’s covert prejudices by brandishing unmentionable words that, if uttered today, would not only get you ostracized but could get you arrested and charged with a hate crime. Hentoff, who testified in Bruce’s defense at his trial, recounts that Lenny used to say, “What I wanted people to dig is the lie. Certain words were suppressed to keep the lie going. But if you do them, you should be able to say the words.”

Not much has changed in the 50 years since Bruce died. In fact, it’s gotten worse.

What we’re dealing with today is a government that wants to suppress dangerous words—words about its warring empire, words about its land grabs, words about its militarized police, words about its killing, its poisoning and its corruption—in order to keep its lies going.

As I document in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, what we are witnessing is a nation undergoing a nervous breakdown over this growing tension between our increasingly untenable reality and the lies being perpetrated by a government that has grown too power-hungry, egotistical, militaristic and disconnected from its revolutionary birthright.

The only therapy is the truth and nothing but the truth.

Otherwise, there will be no more First Amendment. There will be no more Bill of Rights. And there will be no more freedom in America as we have known it.

Speaking against the government is now an act of terrorism according to the Federal Government.

Constitutional advocates, Extremist groups motivated by a range of U.S.-born philosophies present a “clear and present danger” to the country says Obama’s Justice Department.

Many of us saw it coming a long time ago — increasing confrontation between liberty proponents and the corrupt federal establishment leading to increasing calls by political elites and bureaucrats to apply to American citizens the terrorism countermeasures designed for foreign combatants. It was only a matter of time and timing.

My stance has always been that the elites would wait until there was ample social and political distraction; a fog of fear allowing them to move more aggressively against anti-globalists. We are not quite there yet, but the ground is clearly being prepared.

Economic uncertainty looms large over our fiscal structure today, more so even than in 2008. Global instability is rampant, with Europe at the forefront as mass migrations of “refugees” invade wholesale. At best, most of them intend to leach off of the EU’s already failing socialist welfare structure while refusing to integrate or respect western social principles. At worst, a percentage of these migrants are members of ISIS with the goals of infiltration, disruption and coordinated destruction.

With similar immigration and transplantation measures being applied to the U.S. on a smaller scale (for now) the ISIS plague will inevitably hit our shores in a manner that will undoubtedly strike panic in the masses. I believe 2016 will be dubbed the “year of the terrorist,” and ISIS will not be the only “terrorists” in the spotlight.

While scanning the pages of mainstream propaganda machines like Reuters, I came across this little gem of an article, which outlines plans by the U.S. Justice Department to apply existing enemy combatant laws used against ISIS terrorists and their supporters to “domestic extremists,” specifically mentioning the Bundy takeover of the federal refuge in Burns, Oregon as an example.

“Extremist groups motivated by a range of U.S.-born philosophies present a “clear and present danger,” John Carlin, the Justice Department’s chief of national security, told Reuters in an interview. “Based on recent reports and the cases we are seeing, it seems like we’re in a heightened environment.”

“Clear and present danger” is a vital phrase implemented in this statement from Carlin and he used it quite deliberately. It refers to something called the “clear and present danger doctrine or test,” a doctrine rarely used except during times of mass panic, such as during WWI and WWII. The doctrine applies specifically to the removal of 1st Amendment rights of free speech during moments of “distress.”

What does this mean, exactly? “Clear and present danger” is a legal mechanism by which the government claims the right not only to prosecute or destroy enemies of the state, but also anyone who publicly supports those same enemies through speech or writing.

Recently, the prospect of allowing the Federal Communications Commission to target and shut down websites related to ISIS has been fielded by congressional representatives. Many people have warned against this as setting a dangerous precedent by which the government could be given free license to censor and silence ANY websites they deem “harmful” to the public good, even those not tied to ISIS in any way.

Of course, overt hatred of Islamic extremism amongst conservatives is at Defcon 1 right now, and with good reason. Unfortunately, this may lead constitutional conservatives, the most stalwart proponents of free speech, to mistakenly set the stage for the erasure of free speech rights all in the name of stopping ISIS activity. The greatest proponents of constitutional liberties could very well become the greatest enemies of constitutional liberties if they fall for the ploy set up by the establishment.

The Reuters article outlines the future implications quite plainly:

The U.S. State Department designates international terrorist organizations to which it is illegal to provide “material support.” No domestic groups have that designation, helping to create a disparity in charges faced by international extremist suspects compared to domestic ones.

It has been applied in 58 of the government’s 79 Islamic State cases since 2014 against defendants who engaged in a wide range of activity, from traveling to Syria to fight alongside Islamic State to raising money for a friend who wished to do so.

Prosecutors can bring “material support” terrorism charges against defendants who aren’t linked to groups on the State Department’s list, but they have only done so twice against non-jihadist suspects since the law was enacted in 1994. The law, which prohibits supporting people who have been deemed to be terrorists by their actions, carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.”

The Justice Department goes on to explain that they are “exploring” options to make “material support” charges more applicable to “domestic extremists.”

So what constitutes “material support?” Well, as mentioned earlier, John Carlin just told us. His use of the phrase “clear and present danger” denotes that 1st Amendment speech will be restricted, ostensibly because some speech will be labeled “material support” of terrorist organizations. The liberty movement, likely in the near future, is about to be outwardly defined by the establishment as a terrorist movement, and those who support it through speech will be designated as material supporters of said terrorism.

To be utterly clear, this could apply to any and everyone who promotes anti-government sentiments online, and will likely be aimed more prominently at liberty analysts and journalists. The argument for this move is rather humorous in my view — bureaucrats and others complain that it is “not fair” that Islamic terrorists are being treated more harshly than “white rural domestic extremists” and that material support laws should be enforced against everyone equally.

Yes, that’s right, the 1st Amendment is under threat because the Justice Department does not want to appear “racist.” At least, that is their public excuse…

Will this all take place in a vacuum? Of course not. Something terrible is brewing. Another Oklahoma City-stye bombing, perhaps. Or a standoff gone horribly awry. The standoff in Oregon continues without Ammon Bundy and is about to get worse in the next week according to my information (you will see what I mean). The point is, the narrative is being finalized in preparation for whatever trigger events may be in store, and that narrative closely associates ISIS with liberty activists as being in the same category.

“As law enforcement experts confront domestic militia groups, “sovereign citizens” who do not recognize government authority, and other anti-government extremists, they also face a heightened threat from Islamic extremists like the couple who carried out the Dec. 2 shootings in San Bernardino, California.”

 This is why I have consistently argued against giving any extra-judicial powers to our already bloated federal system. I am a staunch opponent of Islamic immigration and terrorism, but some people are so desperate to fight one monster that they are willing to give unlimited powers to another monster thinking it will give their minds ease. These people are fools, and they are putting the rest of us at risk.

If you want to fight ISIS, then fight them yourself. Do not give the same government that helped create ISIS and then deliberately transplanted them to Europe and the U.S. even more legal authority over our lives to supposedly “stop” ISIS. This would be absurd.

In the meantime, I would point out that regardless of how the federal government wishes to label us, the liberty movement could not be more different from the Islamic State.

  1. We don’t enjoy covert funding and training from the government at large as ISIS does. (Though according to leftists, we all take our marching orders from the Koch Brothers).
  2. Most of us were born in this country and are rather attached to it.
  3. ISIS fights to dismantle traditional Western values. We fight to restore traditional Western values, and we will not only fight ISIS but also cultural Marxists and collectivists who share the same disdain for liberty.
  4. Many of us are far better trained than ISIS goons, so if anything, we are a more severe threat to the enemies of free society. (We actually look down our sights when we shoot rather than hiding behind cars with the rifle over our head and squatting like a constipated dog. We can also operate their AK-47s better than they can).
  5. We are as opposed to Sharia Law as we are to martial law. In fact, we see them as essentially the same unacceptable circumstance.
  6. We don’t cannibalize our enemies. (Who would want to take a bite out of Henry Kissinger’s spleen?)
  7. We might look down on the insane ramblings of today’s feminists, but at least we would not stone them, enforce female circumcision, then rape them, then throw acid in their faces, then slap a hijab on them and take away their driver’s licenses. So maybe, just maybe, we toxic masculine conservative barbarians aren’t as bad as they seem to think we are.
  8. We understand that black pajamas are not the best camouflage, but ISIS may have better fashion sense than we do.
  9. Our beards are all-American. Their beards are just plain creepy.
  10. They fight to be martyred. We fight to win.

When all is said and done, who is the greater threat to you and your freedoms? A psychotic theocrat that has taken his religion so far into the forbidden zone that any evil, no matter how heinous, is justified through the circular logic of zealotry? The criminal government that funded that psycho, trained him, slapped a rocket launcher in his hands and then gave him a free plane ride to your favorite shopping mall? Or, some weirdo that stores lots of food and gas masks in his basement and every once in a while talks to you about 9/11? Come on, think about it…

Institutionalizing The Persecution Of Biblical Christians In America

BurnTheChurch

The full force of the federal, state and local governments will soon be turned against defenders of biblical Christianity. Will we resist or collaborate?

It is at the door, picking off one business after another, one Christian after another.  The news this week, stoked by the Praetorian Leftist Media and the storm trooping hordes of hedonists and those caught up in pushing the mark of the Genesis 19 Beast, is being revealed.

Of interest is how many professing ‘christians’ carry the banner and flag of homosexual intolerance, believing it to be a fight against bigotry. One wonders what other devious behaviors will end up being championed as ‘rights’ now that the precedent is set for forcing cultural hedonism upon all via laws and policies enacted to force acceptance, respect and accommodation of those behaviors?

Remember we were told by radical Leftist Elizabeth Warren that “You didn’t build that’ when it comes to conducting business.  In the view of the Collectivist/Leftist – all business and commerce belongs to government. All wealth belongs to government.

if you do not think or act as the zeitgeist of cultural and liberal Leftists demand – you will not be able to buy or sell.  Dare to affirm your 1st Amendment Rights?  A mob action will criminalize any efforts to protect biblical faith and exercise.  The feckless leaders in government will fold and capitulate to this mob banging down the doors.  Revised Indiana RFRA Law will send Christians to jail for refusing to serve homosexuals for any reason or occasion.

Wickedness derives it’s power from an arbitrary and hostile dogma that will automatically attack biblical morality with a violent fervor and fanaticism this nation has only read about in the Middle East or from history books.

It is at our doors.

Homosexual Stormtroopers

Gay Totalitarianism and the Coming Persecution of Christians

Hatred of the Gospel is boiling over into the vilification of Christians. State violence won’t be far behind, history teaches.

By 

If you have been following mass media over the past few days, you will have learned from an economist at the U.S. Department of Labor that defenders of religious freedom are “Nazis.” Take a moment to ponder that assertion. Roll it around in your head for a while. You’ll be hearing a lot more fighting words as we enter the next phase of Christian life in America.

Sample the hate that has been spewed at the state of Indiana in the past week, and faithful Christians in recent years, by gay activists and their allies. We are “bigots,” “Neanderthals” and “haters,” whose views must be ritually rejected by anyone hoping to keep a job in today’s America — even in a Catholic high school. Where will this end? Is there a logical stopping point for this aggression, where Christians are left in peace?

History teaches that mass vilification rarely stops short of spilling blood. The French Jacobins who spent the 1780s slandering the clergy in pornographic pamphlets went on in the 1790s to slaughter Christians by the hundreds of thousands. The Turks paved the way for killing a million Armenian Christians with a wave of propaganda. The Bolsheviks followed their “anti-God” crusade of the 1920s with starvation camps and firing squads. The Communist governments of Eastern Europe obeyed the same script, as scholar Anne Applebaum documents in her sobering study The Iron Curtain. The Hutu government of Rwanda prepared for its assault on the once-powerful Tutsis by incessantly describing them as “cockroaches” on radio broadcasts, which triggered a genocide.

If the media, the law and our elite institutions succeed in lumping Christian sexual morals in with white racism, how long will it be before believing Catholics, Protestants, Orthodox (and many religious minorities) find themselves labelled as members of “extremist sects,” no more to be trusted with the care of their own children than the Branch Davidians were?

Does that sound crazy to you? Then ask yourself why the German government, and the European Court of Human Rights, felt justified in seizing a Christian home-schooled student — with the apparent approval of the Obama administration. Think about the moral views you teach your own kids. Would your local education bureaucrats approve?

Perhaps Chicago’s cardinal, Francis George, wasn’t guilty of hyperbole when he said, “I expect to die in bed, my successor will die in prison and his successor will die a martyr in the public square.”

Joining him would be many Christians who affirm the Gospel in its integrity — instead of the neutered version that’s now sweeping the denominations to swell the ranks of the persecutors. See the Episcopalians and Presbyterians who are now blessing same-sex marriages; see “Catholic” universities such as Marquette, which fired a professor for defending the Catholic Catechism on this subject, and bishops such as Paul Bootkowski of Metuchen, N.J., who backed up a Catholic school that suspended a Catholic teacher for her Facebook comments critical of gay activism. With shepherds like these, who really needs wolves?

From Libertarian to Totalitarian in Twenty Years

It’s stunning how quickly the demands of gay activists went from libertarian (“Don’t arrest us for sodomy”) to totalitarian (“Take part in our weddings or we’ll destroy your livelihoods.”)

But I am not surprised. I was in New York City when the radical gay activists of ACT UP targeted John Cardinal O’Connor for upholding biblical teaching on sexuality — even as he spent millions offering free care for indigent victims of AIDS. The “Stop the Church” demonstrations featured images of O’Connor in Nazi uniform, and culminated on Dec. 10, 1989, in an orchestrated attack on St. Patrick’s Cathedral during a Mass, where gay militants shouted down the celebrant, and demanded Holy Communion — only to throw it down and stomp on the body of Christ.

This bigoted attack on a religious service did not discredit ACT UP; indeed, you can now read an article celebrating it courtesy of the U.S. government-sponsored Radio Free Europe.

If Indiana caves and guts its religious freedom law — as Gov. Mike Pence has already promised — it will prove an equal triumph for those who are so enraged at Christian teaching that they are willing to persecute Christians.

If these zealots succeed, they will tear up the civil peace in this country, forcing millions of Americans to choose between church and state. If laws or government policies beggar Christian businesses, close Christian colleges and schools and force faithful Christians into third-class citizenship — making us virtual dhimmis, like the Christian Copts in Egypt — what should we do? What should be our response now that we know what they want to do, and are overplaying their hand, but before they complete their coup d’etat?

We need to ask ourselves some brutal questions: How should the faithful in the U.S. military respond? What about those in the state and local police? City, state and federal employees? What about religious shareholders in corporations led by anti-Christians, such as Apple?

Should we engage in large-scale, non-violent civil disobedience, as black Americans once did in the face of Jim Crow laws? We have the numbers to bring this country to a sudden screeching halt, if we can stand up to the media’s blows and spitting. Those who resist these unjust laws will be treated with all the violence and contempt that was poured out on the pro-life Operation Rescue in the 1980s and ’90s. Local cops from West Hartford, Connecticut, to Los Angeles, California, brutalized teenagers, old women, even nuns and pregnant mothers.

But we need not act alone, like these isolated bakers and florists. The marriage deconstructionists can only succeed by dividing us, vilifying us and picking us off one at a time. This is the essence of their strategy — they’re now trying it with an entire state. Tim Cook (or Apple’s shareholders) would backpedal in an instant if he learned the hard way that he was insulting and infuriating 2/3rds of American states, and half the population.

The frog must jump out of the pan, before it boils.

We should not let the possibility or even the likelihood of “failure” make us timid. Witness is utterly different from propaganda, more fragile but far more enduring.

For centuries, the early Christians endured far worse than we might face, dying in the Colosseum to the taunts of jeering crowds — whose grandchildren would flee the moral chaos of collapsing Rome and flock to the underground churches. All the persecution that a government like China can deal its native Christians has not stopped the church from exploding there, and striking fear at the highest levels of a totalitarian government. The battered church in Poland led the movement that brought down the Iron Curtain, through sober, persistent resistance.

Perhaps the future we face is the one that Cardinal George envisioned. Speaking of a future bishop who would someday die a martyr, George predicted, “His successor will pick up the shards of a ruined society and slowly help rebuild civilization, as the church has done so often in human history.” If we stand for eternity, then history is on our side.

Fascism – A Progressive Construct: From The French Revolution To Obama’s Age of Tyranny

Obamaism

History reveals Satan’s fingerprints on the ideology that spawned the worst miseries and genocides in modern history.  Obama and the Democrats in America are imposing upon us, a similar fate.

One of the two greatest lies that most Americans have bought lock-stock and barrel from decades of liberal Left indoctrination is that 1.) Our Rights come from government which is the greatest good; and 2.) That European Fascism and Hitler’s Nazi’s were a product of Right Wing Christian Conservative Nationalism.

Nothing could be further from the truth, and the Left has always known this which is why they worked so hard to achieve success in the minds of easily deceived Americans that Fascism is a Conservative/Right/Christian ideology.  The meme that “fascism will come carrying a cross and wrapped in the flag” is the fear and loathing the Leftists have for Christian Conservatives, and it was convenient for them to convince as many as possible that liberty has nothing to fear from the Progressive Left, but rather from the Conservative Christian.

The abject truth of the matter is that Fascism along with Nazism and Marxism are bastard sons of Socialism, which is not a Conservative/Right wing ideology.  Rather, they emanate from the top-down controlling aspect that Statists of Socialism and Communism demand.

What Obama and his MarxoFascist Democrats are fundamentally transforming America into, is a Fascist totalitarian state that ensconces the Ruling Class into a position of power that micromanages every single aspect of our lives. How we live, what we think, what we eat, what we learn and teach, to what kind of health care we will be allowed to have is all part of the agenda to subjugate liberty to Statism.  Do not marvel at the charge, for this is what the Progressives have sought to do to this country for a century.

The fingerprints of such tyranny stretch back to antiquity – but the modern strain of Satan’s imprint on man’s government are found squarely in those who in name of ‘fairness’, ‘compassion’, ‘equity’ and ‘common salvation’ impose their tyranny and rule their subjects with an iron fist – exterminating any and all who stand in their way.

And we’re next.

French Revolution and the triumph of Liberal Fascism

“There are only two parties… the people and its enemies. We must exterminate those miserable villains who are eternally conspiring against the rights of man… [W]e must exterminate all our enemies.”

~ Robespierre

For the progressive left, all roads lead to the French Revolution (1789-99) which was the first totalitarian revolution, the genesis of modern totalitarianism, and the spiritual foundation for the Russian Communist, Italian Fascist and German Nazi revolutions. A nationalist-populist rebellion, it was established and controlled by a small intellectual braintrust hellbent on killing God, Christianity, capitalism and objective truth thus devolving Western civilization into a savage society based on a political religion that deified “the people,” anointed the revolutionary elites as their priests, and destroyed the rights of individuals. As Robespierre put it, “The people is [sic] always worth more than individuals… The people is sublime, but individuals are weak” – or collectively, dispensable.

In this case, I believe that American presidential history over the last 100 years has (or soon will) establish the Wilson, the FDR, the LBJ and the Obama administrations as the direct descendants of the world’s first fascist movement: the French Revolution.

Since history is the final judge of our deeds (JFK), it’s incredulous how any rational person today would doubt the fascist nature of the French Revolution. Few doubt that it was tyrannical, terrorist, nationalist, conspiratorial, and populist. It created the first modern dictators, Robespierre and Napoleon, and functioned on the foundation that the nation had to be ruled by a progressive avant-garde, a pagan oligarchy who would personify as the authentic, organic expression of the “general will” according to the political philosopher, Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-78). The fanatical Jacobin character made the revolutionaries more vicious and evil than the king they supplanted. Some fifty thousand people eventually were murdered in the Great Terror, a majority in political show trials that British historian Simon Schama defines as the “founding charter of totalitarian justice.” Robespierre summed up the totalitarian nihilism of the Revolution: “There are only two parties in France: the people and its enemies. We must exterminate those miserable villains who are eternally conspiring against the rights of man… [W]e must exterminate all our enemies.”

Jonah Goldberg, in his essential treatise, “Liberal Fascism,” connected modern liberalism directly to the French Revolution writing:

      But what truly makes the French Revolution the first fascist revolution was its effort to turn politics into a religion. (In this the revolutionaries were inspired by Rousseau, whose concept of the general will divinized the people while rendering the person an afterthought). Accordingly, they declared war on Christianity, attempting to purge it from society and replace it with a “secular” faith whose tenets were synonymous with the Jacobin agenda. Hundreds of pagan-themed festivals were launched across the country celebrating Nation, Reason, Brotherhood, Liberty, and other abstractions in order to bathe the state and the general will in an aura of sanctity. As we shall see, the Nazis emulated the Jacobins in minute detail.

The American right and classical liberals embraced the American Revolution (1775-83), which was fundamentally conservative, while rejecting categorically the evil deeds and fanaticism of Jacobinism. However, if the French Revolution was fascist, then subsequent generations should have deduced that this diabolical movement rightly as the fruit of this poisoned tree and fascism and be relegated to its proper place in history as the genesis of political liberalism. This would lead to a major paradigm shift in the leftist worldview; therefore, liberals turned to the irrational and willingly embraced to cognitive dissonance and revisionist history rooted in pseudo-scientific ideas like Social Darwinism, scientism, scientific racism, evolution atheism and postmodernism.

Johann Gottfried von Herder (1744-1803), the infamous theologian, philosopher, poet and literary critic is perhaps unjustly credited with establishing the intellectual foundation for Nazism, borrowed heavily from Rousseau’s neo-pagan political arguments returning mankind back to his original savage state of nature and reformulated them into an existential cultural struggle (e.g., Kulturkampf of Otto von Bismarck [1871-78]). According to Herder, Rousseau’s “general will” was exclusive in each nation since its history, culture and traditions were unique to a particular Volk (people). This Romantic, nationalist worldview led different intellectuals and artists to champion the individuality or supremacy of races, nations, and cultures leading inexorably to scientific racism and race-based genocide against minority and religious groups.

Rousseau’s utopian society is not expressed by ethnicity or geography or tradition, nevertheless, Rousseau’s deification of the nation under the rule of the dominate State, his glorification of neo-pagan ideas led directly to the Golden Age of twentieth century tyrants (e.g., the Ottoman Turks, Lenin, Stalin, Mussolini, Hitler, Franco, Mao, Pol Pot, Iranian Ayatollahs, etc.) all who systematically implemented Rousseau’s savage utopia worldview as public policy leading to democide – the government sponsored deaths of people in the hundreds of millions – and that’s just in the twentieth century alone.

Rousseau’s ideals established by the general will and the dogmas of what he called a “civil religion” was controlled by the omnipotent God-state (e.g., Nietzsche’s “Will to Power” and “god is dead” philosophy). It’s effect meant that Jews, Christians, critical thinkers, intellectuals and people who rebelled against Rousseau’s collective community (spirit) of the society are forced outside the State and have no claim on its protections (e.g., Mussolini:Everything inside the State, nothing outside the State, nothing against the State). In reality, the pagan State is not only required to identify and guard against unsociable individuals or subcommunities (i.e., the church), it is mandated to eradicate them (e.g., Darwin’s natural selection, survival of the fittest, Galton’s eugenics, Hitler’s holocaust, abortion, etc.).

Jonah Goldberg continues his historical critique establishing the French Revolution as the first fascist movement:

      Fascism is indebted to the French Revolution in other ways as well. Robespierre appreciated, as did Sorel and his heirs, that violence was a linchpin that kept the masses committed to the ideas of the Revolution: “If the spring of popular government in time of peace is virtue, the springs of popular government in revolution are at once virtue and terror: virtue, without which terror is fatal; terror, without which virtue is powerless. Terror is nothing other than justice, prompt, severe, inflexible; it is therefore an emanation of virtue; it is not so much a special principle as it is a consequence of the general principle of democracy applied to our country’s most urgent needs.”

“For the first time in history,” proclaimed historian Marisa Linton, “terror became an official government policy, with the stated aim to use violence in order to achieve a higher political goal.” The paradox seemed lost on the Bolsheviks – self-proclaimed heirs of the French Revolution – who championed fascism, rather than their own method, as an “openly terroristic dictatorship.”

The usefulness of terror as a proven strategy to seize and maintain absolute power to the Jacobins as to modern day liberals, socialists and progressives was totalizing, but amid its dominant objectives was its penchant to preserve a permanent sense of crisis – Leon Trotsky (1879-1940) called it the “Perpetual Revolution.” Saul Alinsky (1909-72) and his acolytes Rahm Emmanuel, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and the Democratic Socialist Party use existential crisis which is historically identified as a central role of fascism because it ends debate and democratic discussions (e.g., “never allow a crisis to go to waste”). Therefore, all fascistic movements put forth considerable effort to extending a perpetual state of emergency – a perpetual revolution that never ends. Historically speaking, the French Revolution was the direct descendant of both World War I and II and in our present era has established the rise of radical Islam, thus spawning a new, globalist Age of Terror (9/11-present).

Liberty’s Absent Warriors

Where the heck is the Christian Church while America is being turned into a Godless totalitarian society??

America is being transformed into a Godless MarxoFascist Police State right in front of our eyes – and outside of some radio talk-show hosts ranting about it every weekday – the country is largely silent about where Obama is taking the nation while our liberties and rights are being systematically stripped away from us.  Where is the Christian church?  With the exception of some high-profile examples of companies like Chick Fillet and Hobby Lobby standing against the infringement of their right to the exercise of faith in how they run their businesses, church leadership is dead silent as evil is being declared good, and righteousness is being legislated into an evil.

God is speaking with warnings to His Servants who are attempting to wake up a lukewarm church to impending judgement.  They appear to be voices shouting from the wilderness as the larger extent of Christians in America continue to ignore or shut their ears to the warnings.

Chuck Baldwin and Dave Daubenmire today share sentiments that match mine, nearly verbatim.  Sadly to answer the question “Where is the church?” – appears most Christians only want to hear smooth and easy things.  The happy-happy, joy-joy theology from the mega-church memes of Joel Osteen and Rick Warren, is what the vast majority prefer to hear rather than the sound biblical principles that once forged our nation’s society.  Pastors do not want to rock the offering plates and tithes, or raise the ire of the government and potentially risk their 501C-3 status.

Liberty was first fought for from the pulpits in the Colonies.  It has to be defended in like manner.  If the church refuses to stand on biblical principles against tyranny – then this people have no hope of ever retaining what liberty they have left.

A people who refuse to be governed by God and who stand to defend that right at all costs, will be ruled by the tyranny of men, and subjugated by the same.

Christians, Please wake up!  America is in the throes of a burgeoning Police State

What is it going to take for pastors and churches to wake up and realize that America is in the throes of a burgeoning police state? Ladies and gentlemen, the long-standing veneration for law and order does not include blind submission to governmental abuse of power. Yet, it seems that very few Christian conservatives are even paying attention to what is happening before their very eyes.

For example, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has purchased over 2 billion rounds of hollow-point ammunition (enough to wage a 30-year war); the DHS has purchased over 7,000 AR-15s. The DHS calls them Personal Defense Weapons (PDW). These are the same semi-automatic rifles with high capacity magazines that when you and I buy them are called “assault rifles.” Plus, the DHS has purchased over 2,700 armored vehicles, the same kind that the US military uses in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Department of Defense (DOD) calls them MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected). They carry .50 caliber weapons that fire from inside the vehicle. The vehicle itself is impervious to mines and small-arms fire. They are the vehicle of choice for our combat troops in the Middle East.

Pray tell, why does the DHS need that kind of firepower? And who do they anticipate using all of this firepower on?

If all of that isn’t disconcerting enough, we have now learned that the DHS has spent 2 million dollars on producing shooting targets of American gun owners. These are called “non-traditional threat” targets. They include pregnant women, elderly citizens, mothers in playgrounds, and even little children. These targets are produced by a company called Law Enforcement Targets, Inc. The company calls these targets “No More Hesitation” targets.

DHS targets

What is the DHS planning to do? Turn the entire continental United States into one big giant Waco?

Can one imagine the reaction by the DHS if a company was producing shooting targets depicting law enforcement officers?

I guess another question I have is who are the people whose faces appear on these targets? Did they know they were being photographed to be used on a shooting target? Or were their images photoshopped? Whose mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, daughter, son, and child are being used for these targets? I wonder how many Americans whose loved ones appear on these targets know that the photographs of their family members are being used as targets for DHS agents to shoot at. And how would any of you like it if those targets bore the photographs of YOUR loved ones?

This is bizarre! If this wasn’t so very, very real, one would think that it was one big practical joke. But it is no joke!

While our own domestic federal police department (a blatantly unconstitutional entity, by the way) is arming itself to the teeth, our President and Vice President are in a full-court press trying to disarm the American citizenry of their most effective and efficient self-defense tool: the semi-automatic rifle. Are we supposed to believe that all of this is mere coincidence? It is true that I was born in the morning, but it was not yesterday morning!

Adding to our cause for concern is the way our veterans are being treated (or should I say mistreated) by the federal government. As far back as 2009, returning Iraq and Afghan War veterans have been labeled as potentially “dangerous extremists” by the DHS (along with people who are pro-life; people who support Ron Paul, Bob Barr, and yours truly; people who believe the US should get out of the UN; people who are opposed to the “New World Order;” people who believe in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ; etc.). Today, more and more veterans are being labeled with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), and other such names, and being told that they are not fit to possess a firearm.

In addition, under President Obama’s recent Executive Order, physicians, both military and civilian, are quizzing their patients regarding firearms and have the potential authority to write a derogatory diagnosis about a patient that could be used as an excuse for the government to deny his or her right to keep and bear arms. (If you have a physician that asks you any questions regarding firearms, my advice is to find another doctor immediately!)

My friends, our country is being transformed into an Orwellian society right before our eyes! All the while, most pastors and churches seem to be completely oblivious to it. And, of course, most of the reporters and journalists in the mainstream media are nothing more than compliant propagandists for anything Big-Government. The same is true for most educators in our major colleges and universities.

But it is the apathy, indifference, and blindness of our pastors and churches that is the most disconcerting. The most influential group of leaders in America is still the pastors–the trend away from traditional churches notwithstanding. There are over 300,000 evangelical churches in the United States. Can one imagine what would happen in this country if half of these pastors would get up in their pulpits this Sunday and sound the clarion call to stand up and fight these insidious encroachments against our liberties? What if 25% would? What would happen if only 10% would rise up and take a stand?

Dear Christian friend, how can you stay in a church where the pastor will not take a stand for your liberties? How can you give such a church your tithes and offerings? Do you not realize that any pastor and church that refuses to fight and protect your liberties is helping to put the shackles of tyranny and oppression around the necks of your families?

Regardless of how sound you believe your pastor to be doctrinally, or how educated he is, or how much Hebrew and Greek he knows, or how warm and caring he is, or how much you personally like him, if he is not willing to take a public stand for your liberties, he is a willing accomplice to the demise of our republic and the rise of totalitarianism in this land–as surely as the pastors of Germany were accomplices to the rise of Hitler’s Third Reich!

Christian, please wake up! A police state is being constructed before your very eyes. Your liberties are being systematically expunged. While you are waving your hands and praising Jesus, the enemies of liberty are laying the nets and traps around your homes and communities that are going to be used to enslave you. While you are fixated on your pastor and church staying doctrinally pure, the barbed-wire fences are being built around the camps in which your children and grandchildren will be incarcerated. While you sit comfortably on the padded pews in your heated and air conditioned church sanctuary and listen to an inspiring sermon that makes you feel warm and fuzzy all over, the sacred principles that protect your right to freely worship, and speak, and defend your family are disappearing.

Beyond that, not only are many thousands of pastors not resisting this emerging police state; they are actively and enthusiastically joining with the big-government toadies in helping to eviscerate our freedoms. Is your pastor one of these? If so, you might as well be listening to sermons written by Joseph Goebbels.

Big-Government propagandists love to couch submission to oppression under the guise of patriotic duty to law and order. But submission to oppression is not patriotic; it is imbecilic! And make no mistake about it: the attempt to outlaw, ban, and confiscate our firearms, especially our semi-automatic rifles, has nothing to do with law and order; it has everything to do with overt oppression. To such an egregious encroachment against our liberty there can be no submission, only determined, resolute resistance.

And a similar cry from Coach Dave Daubenmire today also.  Where I differ from him in understanding, is that his optimism of ‘rebuilding a nation’ after we are rendered to dust is not biblical.  We SHOULD NOT attempt to rebuild that which God Himself allows to be torn down.  This is as true of a nation as it was for the Temple system in Jerusalem.

OUR SILENCE IS DESTROYING THIS NATION!

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. –Rom 1

We have no one to blame but ourselves.

To put it as the Bible does, we are without excuse.

We. Me and you. Our silence, our cowardice, and our unwillingness to take some heat has cooked our own goose.

We won’t be able to say we didn’t see it coming, because we did.

We won’t be able to say we couldn’t have done anything about it because we didn’t even try.

We won’t be able to say it wasn’t our fault, because it was.

Silence isn’t golden, it’s yellow. The only thing necessary for evil men to triumph is for good men to do nothing. To permit is to participate. For he who knows to do right and not to do it, to him it is sin.

Sin. There is that word. Our silent acquiescence to the destruction of this nation is without excuse.

Sin. A word we have stricken from the public discourse in America, and a word that has been put in the closet in most of our churches.

Sin. The cause of every misery this nation is about to endure.

“Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.” –Isaiah 1:4

We knew better. We knew that the road to hell was paved with good intentions, yet we permitted the god-haters to lead us down the yellow-brick road only to discover that OZ was only a figment of someone’s imagination.

We didn’t hand-off to our children what had been handed off to us and as a result we wake-up daily to a nation that we no longer recognize.

We love to blame the government, or the Congress. We point our fingers at the senators, or the courts. We blame the Devil, or the Devil’s spawn in the Whitehouse. We blame TV, and the media. We throw our stones at “rock music” or violent video games. We blame guns and drugs, divorce and debauchery, or race and religion.

But we never blame ourselves. We never look deep in the eyes of the man in the mirror, and trace the wrinkles carved on the surface of our skin to the self-inflicted wounding of turning from Biblical principles as the cause for the deep scars in America’s soul.

We did it. You and I. We spent so much time looking the other way that we can no longer find our way. We have watched our children walk the well-intentioned path for so long that it is almost impossible to rescue them as this nation slides into hell.

The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” –Psalm 9:17

One nation under God. In God we trust! God bless America!

Who are we kidding?

Why should God bless America?

We are a deluded nation. Everything that we see in this nation is false.

The stock market is soaring as the nation sinks. Economic prosperity is an illusion. We produce nothing in America any longer except for porn and debt. The market will tank. It happened before and it will happen again. Yet you remain in the market. You think things will get better because the government tells you it will. You are deluded.

Education expenses are skyrocketing in America. The more we spend on education, the more sheep-like our children become. We teach them that debt is the path to the American dream. Schools teach our children foolishness and we continue to pay for it…the higher the education the lower the wisdom. Professing ourselves to be wise we have children who have become fools.

The dollar is being destroyed before our very eyes. Folks find nothing strange about believing in the security of the stock market or the American dollar, yet laugh at the accumulation of silver and gold, the only real money in the world.

Lunch is always free…at least for awhile. Eventually someone has to pick up the tab. Nearly half of Americans are eating lunch for free yet we don’t understand the consequences of the bill coming due. We live off of credit in our personal lives, so government borrowing is no big deal.

Drones are now flying over America. They tell us that the drones will never be used against American citizens. The government is purchasing so many rounds of ammo that the shelves in our local gun shops are empty. If guns are so bad, why does the government have so many? Tanks? The DHS is purchasing freakin tanks!! Thousands of them…wonder why?

The wrath of God is being revealed.

Dorothy’s emerald shoes have rusted. Instead of “there’s no place like home” we find ourselves chanting ‘there’s no place at home.” What do you do when home sweet home is no longer so sweet?

Those of you who read my writings regularly know that I am a glass-half-full kinda guy. I trust in the faithfulness of the Lord and His promise to never leave us or forsake us.

But we have forsaken Him. We have forgotten God. Singing “God Bless America” will not make it so. He has blessed us…more than any nation in history…but we have spent the inheritance.

We have done it to ourselves. We are complicit in the suicide of a super-power.

So, what do we do now?

Calamity is certainly in our future. How it will play out I really don’t know. But are you going to prepare to make it to the other side?

The other side of what, you may ask. The other side of whatever is coming. Is it possible the calamity comes before Jesus returns? What will it look like? Are you prepared?

I have come to the conclusion that we cannot stop whatever is coming. Only the chastening of the Lord will return us to our senses. Because he loves us, he must discipline us. God’s love will hurt.

But there will be an “other side” of this whole mess. We will not be the first nation to have gone through such chastening. It will be time to rebuild. I pray I, and you, are up to the challenge.

Prepare now. Prepare your hearts. Read while you still can…especially the Word. Find and connect with like-minded believers. Hundreds may be depending on your person preparedness.

When the dust settles…if it ever does…folks will be looking for those that they can trust. Those with a plan…those with an answer…those who can lead with righteous judgment…those people will be more important than bullets, beans, or money.

Something horrible is coming. You can feel it…we know something is amiss…the wrath of God is soon to be revealed. We traded our children’s future for a pot of stew…

We will be without excuse…

Ex-Hitler Youth’s Warning To America

obamanazi

What Happens When Christianity Fails To Uphold The Foundations of the Nation

In the 1920’s, for over a decade, The Munich Post tried to warn Germany of the dangers of a little man called Adolf Hitler whom the public ignored as nothing but a “hot headed (Community Activist) rabble rouser from Bavaria”.  In their reporting, commentary and cartoons, the paper relentlessly cataloged the ideas and criminal underpinnings of a man they insisted would be Germany’s undoing.  Much of their criticisms founded in the writings, speeches and criminal actions of the Nazi thugs and party itself that the rest of Germany’s newspapers refused to report.

The Munich Post was a lone voice in the wilderness crying aloud the warnings.  The other newspapers in Germany were already beholden to the Nazi Party and to Hitler who had a controlling stake in The Volkischer Beobachter – part of Germany’s mainstream media in whom Hitler remarked had the purpose of giving “ideological clarification and interpretation to current political issues.”

But the Munich Post remained steadfast in opposition to the rise of Hitler and the Nazi Party. For twelve years they focused sustained critical attention on Hitler, from the time he emerged from the beer-halls to take to the streets of Munich in the early 1920s to the massacres and political assassinations that the Nazis carried out against their opponents in the early 1930’s.  They were the equivalent of today’s Talk Radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Mark Levin; who were ideologically opposed to a movement they saw as a direct threat to the freedoms of the nation itself.  Ultimately the battle between ideologies became more personal and vicious as the Nazis solidified their power and began to purge their opposition.

Hitler called The Munich Post “The poison kitchen” – asserting that the paper did nothing but “cook up poisonous slanders” against the Nazi Party. I cannot help but notice the striking parallels when prominent Democrat leaders in America today refer to Talk Radio as “verbal pornography” engaged in “distorting the truth” about the Democrats and their ideology.

Ultimately, The Munich Post along with any media opposition was taken over and physically destroyed, it’s editors, reports and owners taken to concentration camps and killed.  It’s offices were turned over to loyal mobs of Hitler and they were gutted and burned on March 9, 1933.

The last media warning and opposition to Hitler’s plans for Germany, the Jews and Europe was swept away.

History repeats itself, sometimes in strikingly similar fashion.

Hilmar von Campe sees these similarities.

He should know.  He lived it.

As a former Hitler Youth, he sees the same warning signs that The Munich Post saw all those years ago, and he now cries aloud a warning to America – and beseeches us to heed what will be our national undoing if we fail to do something now.

Ex-Hitler youth’s warning to America
‘Every day brings this nation closer to Nazi-style totalitarian abyss’

© 2008 WorldNetDaily 

 

 

WASHINGTON – Because it has abandoned moral absolutes and its historic Christian faith, the U.S. is moving closer to a Nazi-style totalitarianism, warns a former German member of the Hitler Youth in a new book.

“Every day brings this nation closer to a Nazi-style totalitarian abyss,” writes Hilmar von Campe, now a U.S. citizen, and author of“Defeating the Totalitarian Lie: A Former Hitler Youth Warns America.”

Von Campe has founded the national Institute for Truth and Freedom to fight for a return to constitutional government in the U.S. – a key, he believes, to keeping America free.

“I lived the Nazi nightmare, and, as the old saying goes, ‘A man with an experience is never at the mercy of a man with an argument,'” writes von Campe. “Everything I write is based on my personal experience in Nazi Germany. There is nothing theoretical about my description of what happens when a nation throws God out of government and society, and Christians become religious bystanders. I don’t want to see a repetition. The role of God in human society is the decisive issue for this generation. My writing is part of my life of restitution for the crimes of a godless government, of the evil of which I was a part.”

Von Campe grew up under the Nazis, served in the Hitler Youth and fought against the Red Army in the Yugoslavian theater as a tank gunner in the German army. He was captured at the end of the war and escaped five months later from a prisoner of war camp in Communist Yugoslavia.

“It took me a long time to understand and define the nature of National Socialism,” says von Campe. “And, unfortunately, their philosophy continues to flourish under different labels remaining a menace to America and free human society.”

He writes: “The most painful part of defining National Socialism was to recognize my own moral responsibility for the Nazi disaster and their crimes against humanity. It boiled down to accepting the truth that ‘as I am, so is my nation,’ and realizing that if every German was like me, it was no wonder that the nation became a cesspool of gangsters. This realization is as valid today for any person in any nation as it was then, and it is true for America and every American now.”

Von Campe’s message is that political freedom and democratic rules alone are not sufficient to govern humanity justly.

“Democratic procedures can be subverted and dishonest politicians are like sand in the gearbox, abundant, everywhere and destructive,” he writes. “What I see in America today is people painting their cabins while the ship goes down. Today in America we are witnessing a repeat performance of the tragedy of 1933 when an entire nation let itself be led like a lamb to the Socialist slaughterhouse. This time, the end of freedom is inevitable unless America rises to her mission and destiny.

Von Campe says he sees spiritual parallels among Americans and his childhood Germany.

The silence from our pulpits regarding the moral collapse of American society from within is not very different from the silence that echoed from the pulpits in Germany toward Nazi policies,” he explains. “Our family lived through the Nazi years in Germany, an experience typical of millions of Europeans regardless of what side they were on. We paid a high price for the moral perversions of a German government, which excluded God and His Commandments from their policies. America must not continue following the same path to destruction, but instead heed the lessons of history and the warning I am giving.”

Specifically, von Campe warns Americans their political leaders are on the wrong footing, “denying our cultural and traditional roots based on our unique Constitution and Christian orientation as a nation. Christians don’t understand their mission.”
