The officer who saved “the Pianist”

Leave a comment

H/T Beyond The Band Of Brothers.

 The Wehrmacht officer helped Poles and Jews whenever he could.    

     Fans of The Pianist, the 2002 film based on the story of Polish composer and pianist Władysław Szpilman, surely remember the touching scene when a German officer, instead of arresting him, listens to his rendition of Chopin’s Ballade in G minor, regularly bringing him food afterward. Today’s article looks at Wilhelm Adalbert Hosenfeld, the real-life officer whose meeting with Szpilman was depicted in the movie.

Wilhelm Adalbert Hosenfeld

Hosenfeld (1895-1952) was the son of a Catholic schoolmaster. His views on life were greatly influenced by Catholicism, the Catholic Action movement aimed at spreading the religion in German society, German patriotism and the Wandervogel, a back-to-nature youth hiking movement. Hosenfeld fought and was seriously wounded in World War I, receiving the Iron Cross Second Class.

Despite his growing pacifism, he joined the Nazi Party in 1935 at his wife’s influence. Like millions of other Germans, Hosenfeld too was swept up by Hitler’s rhetoric and he saw the Führer as the man who could rebuild Germany and wash away the shame of the harsh Versailles Treaty. As the years passed, however, he gradually became aware of Nazism’s threat. “The futility of it all grows ever more in my consciousness” he wrote in his journal in 1938.

Hosenfeld was drafted into the Wehrmacht in 1939 and sent to Nazi-occupied Poland, where he remained for the rest of the war. At his first posting he was involved in building and running a POW camp but he was in Warsaw by mid-1940, serving with a guard battalion as a staff officer and the battalion sports officer. It was here that he truly saw the inhumane treatment of Jews and Polish prisoners. “I think people look and see that I suffer with them. It is pitiful to see these poor men, their miserable state, but we are powerless. But I seek to help who I can” – he wrote.

Throughout the war he gave extra food to malnourished POWs in his care; he furnished civilians with false papers and got them employment at the sports stadium under his oversight; he pushed for the early release of Polish POWs and broke regulations by allowing others contact with their families. He regularly attended mass at a local Catholic church, even though this was forbidden for Nazi Party members.

The first Jew he helped was Leon Warm, a local man who was deported to the Treblinka extermination camp but managed to escape off the train and return to the city. He found employment at the stadium under a false name and became one of the men who tried to intercede on Hosenfeld’s behalf after the war. On another occasion, the Gestapo rounded up several men, including the brother-in-law of a Catholic priest who was active in the Polish Resistance. Seeing the men on the truck being carried to the labor camp to be executed, Hosenfeld waved down the vehicle, declared to the SS officer that he needed a man for labor detail and pretended to randomly pick out the priest’s brother-in-law.

As the Holocaust unfolded around him, he recorded the following in his journal: “It is impossible to believe all these things, even though they are true. Yesterday I saw two of these beasts [SS men] in the tram. They were holding whips in their hands when they came out of the ghetto. I would like to throw those dogs under the tram. What cowards we are, wanting to be better and allowing all this to happen. For this, we too will be punished, and our innocent children after us, because in allowing these evil deeds to occur, we are partners to the guilt.” It was during his life-saving actions that he ended up at Aleja Niepodległości (Independence Avenue) 223, where he came upon the starving Szpilman, whom he brought regular supplies of food afterwards.

Szpilman before the war

When the Soviets reached Poland, Hosenfeld surrendered with the rest of his unit. Due to his unit affiliation, he was suspected of working either for the Abwehr (the German military intelligence) or the Sicherheitsdienst (the intelligence agency of the SS and the Nazi Party). He was charged with espionage and sentenced to 25 years of hard labor. In 1946, he was allowed to send a letter to his wife, in which he named the Jews he helped during the war and asked her to find them and ask for their help in his release. These attempts, even Szpilman’s request to the head of the secret police in communist Poland, failed. In 1952, Hosenfeld died in a Soviet prison camp due to injuries possibly suffered under torture. Today he is listed as one of the Righteous Among the Nations, those gentiles who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust.

Here’s how the bazooka became an iconic weapon of World War II

1 Comment

This is from Business Insider.

I always thought bazookas were a cool weapon.

When I was a kid Remco had USMC Bazooka that I always wanted but never got.

The bazooka was World War II’s answer to the American soldier’s need for portable firepower that could inflict serious damage on the enemy.

Simple enough for use by rifle squads, powerful enough to shoot high-explosive rounds into bunkers and pillboxes, the bazooka put more bang farther away on the battlefield than the average G.I. could throw in the form of a grenade.

True, Gen. George Patton praised the M-1 Garand rifle as the greatest battle implement ever made.

But Gen. Dwight Eisenhower ranked the humble bazooka with the atom bomb, the jeep, and the C-47 transport and cargo plane as one of the four “Tools of Victory” that allowed the Allies to prevail over Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan.

“The bazooka is one of those weapons that has become iconic in spite of its limitations and problems,” said Alan Archambault, former supervisory curator for the US Army Center of Military History. “Even today, most people recognize the name and the weapon.”

Rockets on the battlefield are nothing new. History is full of examples of militaries harnessing explosive force to rocket power with many kinds of results.

The 13th Century Chinese fired rockets at their enemies. The Star-Spangled Banner mentions the “the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air” – Congreve rockets fired at Fort McHenry during the War of 1812 in an effort to burn the fort to the ground.

American space pioneer Dr. Robert Goddard, inventor of the liquid-fuel rocket, even developed a prototype recoilless rocket launcher that he demonstrated to the US Army in November 1918.

Unfortunately for Goddard, the Great War ground to a halt just a few days later and the US military lost interest in rocket-powered weapons for a while.

But when the US entered World War II in 1941, the only anti-tank weapons in its arsenal were the guns on its tanks and specific kinds of anti-tank artillery. That was a problem considering the US Army faced an enemy in North Africa, later Europe, who relied heavily on Panzerdivisions.

US Army Ordnance innovators Capt. Leslie Skinner and Lt. David Uhl experimented with shaped-charge grenades that packed an armor-piercing punch but were too heavy for soldiers to throw. One day, Uhl apparently spied a steel tube on a scrap pile and decided a smooth-bore launch tube was the perfect companion to the grenade/rocket combination he recently developed.

Tube, fin-stabilized rocket, grenade: By May 1942, the combination became known as “Launcher, Rocket, 2.36 inch, Anti-Tank, M-1.”

panzer tank world war iiBundesarchiv BildWith US infantry going up against German armored divisions, they needed anti-tank weapons.

But nobody called it that – the contraption looked like one of the novelty musical instruments of Bob Burns, a popular comedian of the era. Burns called his tubular noisemaker a “bazooka” – from Dutch slang for “loudmouth” – and the name for the joke instrument became the name of the weapon.

Optimally, the bazooka needed two men for proper use: a gunner who aimed and fired the rocket-propelled rounds and a loader who carried the rounds in a cloth bandoleer before loading the bazooka through the back end of the launcher’s tube.

An electric charge from a dry-cell battery ignited the powder charge in the rocket, which sent the round hurtling out of the tube and on its way to the target.

However, early models of the weapon could be downright dangerous. Occasionally, the rocket would fire but get stuck in the tube, leaving the soldier with a live bomb in his shoulder-mounted launcher.

All models of the bazooka produced significant “back-blast”– discharge from the firing rocket that streamed out of the rear-end of the tube – and an obvious smoke trail that often gave away the position of the shooter.

However, improvements to the weapon produced the far-more reliable M-9. It had a light warhead, but it was capable of destroying many armored vehicles because the round could penetrate five-inch armor.

Although intended as an anti-tank weapon, the bazooka could also fire white phosphorous and incendiary warheads for anti-personnel and anti-material use.

For example, Wilbur “Bill” Brunger was an engineer with the US Army during World War II when he received orders in 1945 to demolish three underpasses on the Autobahn near Dortmund, Germany, so the rubble would block any advancing enemy vehicles.

Brunger was with a squad of men trying to take control of those underpasses when they encountered German half-tracks coming their way.

His squad had an M-9 and Brunger fired a round at one of the half-tracks. The round was so efficient he got more than he bargained for.

“It must have had ammunition because it blew, I’d say, a hundred feet in the air,” Brunger said in an 2004 oral history prepared by the Douglas County History Research Center, Colorado. “But it blew up. I was glad we weren’t any closer than we were.”

In fact, the weapon was so effective the bazooka received the sincerest form of flattery: The Nazis copied captured bazookas and also created their Panzerschreck anti-tank rocket launcher using the American bazooka’s basic design.

Although it went through different variants, the bazooka remained in use through the early stages of the Vietnam War. Then, the M-72 LAW (light anti-tank weapon) eclipsed the bazooka and became the rocket-weapon of choice among infantrymen.

However, the bazooka has one remaining cultural influence in American history. According to some sources, Bazooka bubble gum (first introduced to the gum-chewing public in 1947) owes its ordnance-inspired name to the World War II weapon that made a big bang.

Daily Beast Lib Wants Companies To Sign “Loyalty Oaths” Pledging Allegiance To Obama’s “Economic Patriotism”…

Leave a comment

This is from Weasel Zippers.

Shades of 1939 Nazi Germany.

Obama and the DemocRats are responsible for the draconian tax laws that are forcing industry to flee America.

 

Well, that’s, ummm, kinda creepy.

The United States Needs Corporate ‘Loyalty Oaths’ – Daily Beast

On top of all the wars and global messiness, 2014 will be remembered for the plague of “corporate inversion,” which the news media should start routinely calling “corporate desertion.” So far, 47 American-based companies have renounced U.S. citizenship and bought foreign subsidiaries in order to dodge American taxes. Many more are preparing to flee. […]

Because oaths and pledges are a little creepy, this effort needs something else—something that comes out of the legal and business worlds: a contract. More specifically, an NDA.

Non-disclosure agreements are common in corporate America, where tens of thousands of senior managers and employees sign contracts promising to keep all sorts of information confidential. It’s often a condition of employment.

Now it’s time to change the “D” and expect the same from boards of directors—a “non-desertion agreement” with the John Hancock of every board member and CEO in the United States.

If boards thought for even a second about the long-term interests of their companies, they would summon their lawyers and sign. It’s protection against the risks of resurgent nationalism that could strip them of the many advantages (indirect government subsidies, easy access to American markets) that they currently enjoy.

Companies that fail to sign non-desertion agreements would face the kind of public shaming that has gone out of fashion but could come back with a vengeance: boycotts, petitions, angry shareholder meetings full of the language of patriotism.

Hamas Versus Israel: The Case for Moral Clarity

Leave a comment

This is from The Huffington Post.

I cannot believe such an insightful article was in The Huffing Post.

 

 

Two centuries ago, the great German poet Goethe said: “The hardest thing to see is what is in front of your eyes.”

It’s as true today as it was then.

The difference between Hamas and Israel couldn’t be greater, yet you wouldn’t know it when listening to some observers.

For the Non-Aligned Movement, it’s all about Gaza’s innocence and Israel’s guilt. One fine day, with nothing else to do but consider how to provoke peaceful, serene Hamas-ruled Gaza, the big, bad Israelis decided to attack.

For a fair share of the media, it’s above all a story of Palestinian suffering at the hands of Israel’s military machine.

For the protesters in Frankfurt, Germany, on Saturday, it was about equating Israel to Nazi Germany.

It’s a perfect illustration of reverse causality. Hamas triggered a war, but that’s long since forgotten, if ever it was remembered. The focus now is only on the suffering of those who are responsible for the conflict in the first place.

Indeed, Goethe was right. There are those who can’t, or won’t, see what’s right in front of them.

Ideological blinders get in the way. Or a failure of imagination about the true nature of Hamas. Or a gullibility that allows people to believe whatever the Hamas propaganda machine churns out. Or, in some cases, downright hostility to anything that Israel, the Jewish state, does.

It’s high time for moral clarity, not moral fog.

Hamas is a terrorist organization. That’s its official designation by the United States, European Union, Australia, Canada and others.

Israel is a democratic country with an independent judiciary, the rule of law, free and fair elections, and a robust civil society.

Hamas is anti-Western, anti-Christian (and, not surprisingly, anti-Semitic), anti-gay, misogynist and anti-intellectual.

Israel is the exact opposite.

Hamas has territorial ambitions on Israel. In fact, that’s putting it too mildly: it would like to replace Israel in its entirety with a Muslim Brotherhood-ruled state.

Israel has no territorial ambitions on Hamas-ruled Gaza. To the contrary, Israel left it totally nine years ago, with the hope of never having to return.

Hamas has a vested interest in using its Gaza base for permanent confrontation with Israel.

Israel, which, alas, can’t change its geography, has a vested interest in a peaceful, moderate, and developing state on its border.

Hamas, the sole ruler of Gaza since 2007, has used the last seven years to smuggle in weaponry and develop military punch, rather than building the foundation of a responsible state.

Knowing this arsenal has been stockpiled for the sole purpose of being used against it, Israel seeks, as any nation would, to prevent Hamas from attaining its lethal goal.

Hamas has no compunction about deploying terrorist cells and weapons in civilian population centers in Gaza, fully aware that Israel would have no choice but to appear to be targeting “innocent” people.

Israel goes to unprecedented lengths to avoid falling into the Hamas trap, even phoning and dropping leaflets in advance to warn civilians to leave target areas.

Hamas cynically tells the civilian population to stay put, not to react to Israeli warnings about imminent strikes. The more Palestinian casualties, the better, as far as Hamas is concerned.

Israel makes every effort to alert its entire population, Jewish, Christian, and Muslim, to Hamas missile strikes and move people into shelters as quickly as possible.

Hamas uses mosques for storing arms.

Israel uses houses of worship, including mosques, solely for prayer.

Hamas uses schools for weapons depots.

Israel uses schools solely to educate its children, Jewish, Christian, and Muslim.

Hamas uses hospitals as terrorist redoubts.

Israel uses its hospitals solely to cure the ill and injured, including residents of Gaza who can’t find adequate care there.

Hamas aspires to kill as many Israelis as possible, with rockets fired indiscriminately in all directions.

Israel seeks out only the Hamas terrorist infrastructure, and has aborted many operations when the risks of civilian casualties were too great.

Hamas, as the record amply shows, has no compunction about falsifying information, doctoring photos, staging scenes, and inflating numbers to make its case to the outside world.

Israel, by contrast, goes to great lengths, even to the point of sometimes losing the edge in the “media race,” to verify information that it presents about its operations.

Hamas supporters explode in paroxysms of glee when Israeli targets are hit.

Israelis don’t honk horns, shoot in the air, and pass out candy for doing what they wished they didn’t have to do in the first place, and voice regret when the inevitable mistakes in warfare occur.

Hamas wouldn’t know how to spell the words “international humanitarian law,” much less adhere to it.

Israel’s defense forces have specialists in international humanitarian law assigned to every unit in an effort to ensure maximum compliance.

Hamas shouts from the rooftops that Israel is a brutal enemy.

Israel, unlike any other targeted nation in history, is actually providing — right now — up to 70 percent of Gaza’s electricity and much of its fuel and foodstuffs, even as hundreds of rockets are fired from Gaza into Israel.

Hamas celebrates death, something few Westerners can understand.

Israel celebrates life, something all Westerners should understand.

NYS goes full on Nazi; SAFE act to encourage people to inform on neighbors if they have too many bullets

I am sure Hitler and Himmler are celebrating in their

corner of Hell.

I have no doubt Stalin and Chairman Mao are celebrating.

Fuhrer Cuomo has goosestepped his way even further down the path that leads to a freedom-less tyrannical autocracy.

Apparently Cuomo fashions himself as a modern day Hitler.

Yeah…how’s that for some bombastic opening sentences.

Calling someone Hitler or a Nazi has long been a pastime of liberals who find themselves unable to cognitively refute a person with a different ideology.

They toss it around so much that it has become cliche.  I’m not doing that.  Rather, I am pointing out how the methods of the Third Reich are being implemented as we speak in the Empire State under the watch of one Andrew Cuomo.

Changing the rules in order to ram the SAFE Act down the throats of New Yorkers before they had time to voice dissent is one thing.

Enacting a program where, in order to enforce the SAFE Act, you are encouraging neighbors to inform on neighbors anonymously is something that hearkens back to the dark time of Germany.

We all have this idea that the Gestapo, Germany’s secret police, were everywhere and that it was they who ferreted out the Jews and Gays and dissenters.  Yet research done by History Prof. Robert Gellately at FSU , whose expertise deals with the Holocaust and Nazi Germany sheds new light on the myth that the secret police was as omnipresent as the movies would make out.

“There were relatively few secret police, and most were just processing the information coming in. I had found a shocking fact. It wasn’t the secret police who were doing this wide-scale surveillance and hiding on every street corner. It was the ordinary German people who were informing on their neighbors.

And despite the myth that the informers were driven either by a love of the Third Reich or fear from authority, Gellately finds a more base motivation behind the actions of those who named names:

But the motives found were banal—greed, jealousy, and petty differences.

Adolf Hitler Wanted you to spy on your neighbors for money

Cases of partners in business turning in associates to gain full ownership; jealous boyfriends informing on rival suitors; neighbors betraying entire families who chronically left shared bathrooms unclean or who occupied desirable apartments.

And then there were those who informed because for the first time in their lives someone in authority would listen to them and value what they said.

What of people saying they didn’t realize what would happen to those they turned in, that they didn’t think the government would act the way they did?  Gellately states:

“If somebody tells you that they lived in Germany during the Holocaust and didn’t know about concentration camps, they are self-delusional, at best.”

Gellately compiled his findings and wrote a book: Backing Hitler: Consent and Coercion in Nazi Germany, 1933-1944

One of the most frightening ways that the Nazi’s were allowed to do this can be seen in the way gun controllers operate today.  Gellately paints a picture in which it is easy to see the similarities:

“They began with small violations of the rights of Jews and other minorities, and then ratcheted up their racism and persecution only when they saw implied consent from the German people.”

So too are these so-called “common sense” gun laws and small infringements just a stepping stone.  If we allow them to take root, the gun controllers will view that as implied consent and will continue to push for more and farther reaching infringements, not only on the 2nd Amendment but on the others as well, such as the ongoing attack on the Fourth Amendment which is also affected by New York’s new, “rat your neighbor out” policy.

Think about it.  You’re neighbor anonymously calls the authority and tells them you have 8 bullets in your magazine instead of 7 (yeah…that’s a crime in NY), what will be the response?

Will the police show up, knock on your door and ask nicely whether it is true?  Or will their response more likely include a no-knock warrant in the middle of the night that will surely cost your family dog its life if not your own?

Not only is this reminiscent of Nazi Germany but even closer to home it’s like the witch hunts of Salem where the accusation is enough to find you pressed to death or burned, drowned or hung.

Andrew Cuomo wants you to spy on your neighbors for money

So, we have Cuomo encouraging people to spy on and turn in their neighbors for a $500 bounty with no safeguards for the accused, nor any punishment for the accuser should their accusation be without merit.  This situation is so vulnerable to abuse it’s pathetic.  How long before a dispute between neighbors over a property line, or dog crap, or a trees branch ends up with dueling no-knock warrants and tossed houses and shot dogs?

So yeah…I don’t call Cuomo’s regime Nazi-like because I don’t have an artfully intelligent counter to his policies;  I call it Nazi-like because I do.  If it walks like a goose, talks like a goose and encourages neighbors to rat out neighbors like a goose, chances are its a freedom hating goosestepper.

Air Force Homosexuals Go After Christians

2 Comments

This is from Godfather Politics.

The rights of Christians in the military are being trampled on by

homosexuals and Muslims.

Soon they only people left in the military will be homosexuals and Muslims.

I do not see either group being very willing to defend America.

 

The acceptance of open homosexuals in the military is increasingly having the effect that many conservatives anticipated, as Christians and anyone who opposes homosexual “marriage” are finding that they are being punished for their views.

A group of airmen from Lackland Air Force Base recently attended a packed meeting at Village Parkway Baptist Church in San Antonio, where they expressed concerns about a rise in intimidation and persecution from homosexual commanders and their supporters, according to Fox News.

Pastor Steve Branson heard from at least 80 airmen about religious persecution going on at Lackland.

“There is an atmosphere of intimidation at Lackland Air Force Base,” Branson said. “Gay commanders and officers are pushing their agenda on the airmen. There is a culture of fear in the military and it’s gone to a new level with the issue of homosexuality.”

One of the meeting’s attendees was Senior Master Sgt. Phillip Monk, who claims he was relieved of duty after refusing his commander’s order to say he supported homosexual marriage.

After filing a religious discrimination complaint against the Air Force, Monk was accused of making false statements and is now facing a possible court martial.

According to Branson, other airmen have told him they are afraid to speak out publicly because of what is happening to Monk.

Branson relates the story of one airman who was told that even thinking homosexuality is a sin is discrimination: “A commander told him, ‘Don’t you understand discrimination – that your thought process is discrimination?’ The commander actually pulled up the definition of discrimination on Wikipedia and read it to him in front of everyone so he would understand what it was.”

The parent of an airman at the meeting said that the 19-year-old was asked during basic training what religion he was. When the young airman said “Christian,” he was required to retake basic training.

 

One airman claimed he was written up for having his Bible out, while a nearby Muslim airman had out a prayer rug.

Branson said a colonel told him that officers are being ordered to publicly affirm support for homosexuality and being Mirandized if they don’t.

The Obama Administration has been an enemy of Bible-believing Christians since it came into office, issuing warnings through the Department of Homeland Security about the potential terrorist threat of conservatives. Obama himself, before he was elected, revealed his contempt when he complained about people “bitterly clinging to their guns and Bibles.”

The persecution of Christians in the Air Force and other branches of the military should serve as a warning. If the Administration goes after religious rights in the military, it will go after yours as well, as has been borne out repeatedly.

The state of affairs in the Air Force should be regarded as foreshadowing.

There is a purge going on. Historically, governments have purged bureaucracies and militaries of undesirables in order to create weapons to use against their own people.

The current effort is aimed at controlling, breaking the spirit of and, if necessary, expelling those with a moral conscience. The only goal can be to create a military that won’t care if it is ordered to engage in unethical behavior.

We don’t have to look very far for actual examples of how such “ethically refined” armies have been used. Take your pick: Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia, Communist China, Vietnam, Iran, etc.

There is no good purpose that can come of this military purge, and frankly none is intended.

ADOLPH HITLER: The Real Father of Universal Health Care

1 Comment

This is from Clash Daily.

Obamacare closely mirrors some of Hitler’s health care plans.

Obama with his own words supports death panels.

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 9.11.40 AM

Otto von Bismarck, the Chancellor of Germany and a dictator in his own right, started socialized healthcare in 1883 with the Reichsversicherungsverordnung or Reich Insurance Act. However, only certain segments of the society were insured at that time. It was Adolf Hitler, who actually imposed socialized healthcare on the entire German population, as a part of nazification of the healthcare industry, and for that reason he should rightly be called the *real* father of universal healthcare. This collective universal healthcare concept was called “racial hygiene.” This is history that people have largely forgotten, because it is inconvenient for many to remember it.

Hitler also literally rolled out, via panzer, his now universal healthcare to occupied France, Belgium and the Netherlands — those countries with mainly “Aryan” populations. Hitler put universal healthcare in place in those very countries that he wished to aryanize and perfect by eliminating physical/mental defects in the populations via sterilization and medical killing.

The point is that universal healthcare gives any Government enormous power that can be misused, if the wrong people are in control, not that it is adminstered the same now as in Nazi Germany. This is too much power to centralize in the hands of the Government, because governments sometimes go bad.

The first mass murders of the Holocaust were carried out in the socialized German hospitals and the techniques for mass murder were developed there. Several hundred thousand handicapped and mentally ill persons were murdered in Hitler’s universal healthcare system. Retarded and mentally ill children were euthanized and the T4 project did the same for handicapped, mentally ill and elderly adults. In his orders permitting medical killing, Hitler called them “mercy killing” and “lives not worth living.” In this way Germany produced great savings in healthcare, not only due to the extermination of existing patients, but many ill persons (and their families) became afraid to even check into the hospitals.

Robert Jay Lifton, author of “The Nazi Doctors, points out that the extermination of the Jews and others of different ethnic groups was itself seen as a medical solution, a medical procedure for the collective healing of the Aryan race by elimination of the Jewish infection of Aryan blood. So, the entire Holocaust can be seen as an extension of Hitlercare. From that point of view, it is estimated that about 10 million people were murdered under Hitlercare, including six millions Jews. The Nazi plan was ultimately to exterminate about 25 million Jews and Slavs in Eastern Europe in fulfillment of the so-called “racial hygiene” principle of the the German universal healthcare system.

Because resources are limited, the concept of Universal Healthcare requires the Government to make decisions on the distribution of healthcare that will determine the survivability of different groups in society. That is, the welfare of the collective and government priorities are placed above that of the rights of any individual.

Once you have given the Government that much power, there is no natural barrier between you and the Holocaust of the Nazis. It is only a matter of degree, of how far they want to take this concept that social welfare trumps individual rights.

This is the inherent evil of universal healthcare. It gives Government the right to decide life and death for entire classes of society, as opposed to individuals contracting for their own healthcare. This is why Hitler liked universal healthcare so much that he imposed it on conquered countries, not because he was so concerned for the well being of the subjected peoples, but because it gave him the right over entire classes of people to decide, who lives and who dies. It gave him the power to engineer the composition of society to his own malicious requirements. Entire classes of people can be killed — or, allowed to die — with no judicial process being necessary. (This is death panels on steroids.)

This is also the reason that Obama and others in the Government want universal healthcare so desperately. The socialist elite need to be able to ignore the rights of the individual to engineer their new utopian society. For that purpose, the same kind of centrally-controlled healthcare system that Hitler used is required.

Nazi Education Laws Still Rule Germany and America is Not Far Behind

Leave a comment

This is from Godfather Politics.

We are headed for things worse than Nazi Germany.

We are headed for Stalin and Chairman Mao  ruling classes.

 

Nazi Education

You’ve most likely read the story about a German homeschooling family that was accosted by armed German policemen. Their children were taken from them for the crime of teaching their own children in their own home. Most certainly the crime of the century. You can kill your children before their born because of “freedom of choice,” but don’t you dare think you can educate them once they’re born. Children are property of the State.

Like so many distant events, we think that we are immune in America. We say that it can’t ever happen here. Who would have thought that photographers would be told by a court that they would have to put their religious beliefs aside and be forced to photograph a lesbian wedding or a bakery supply a cake for a homosexual couple?

It’s happening in America. What was thought to be impossible 20 years ago is happening at a rapid pace right before our eyes. The day may come when politicians decide that America needs a homogenized educational curriculum (No Child Left Behind, Common Core, etc.) in order to bring solidarity to the nation.

“Everything in the state, nothing against the state, nothing outside the state.” If judges can force business owners to comply with the new thinking on homosexual marriage, what makes us think that “progressives” won’t try to use their authority to indoctrinate children on any number of supposed social ideals? Liberals hate what they don’t control. Homeschooling is something that they don’t control.

The way to change the future is to control the present. Liberals are patient. They have time on their side. It was in 1937 that Adolf Hitler said the following: “The youth of today is ever the people of tomorrow. For this reason we have set before ourselves the task of inoculating our youth with the spirit of this community of the people at a very early age, at an age when human beings are still unperverted and therefore unspoiled.

This Reich stands, and it is building itself up for the future, upon its youth. And this new Reich will give its youth to no one, but will itself take youth and give to youth its own education and its own upbringing.” Here are some additional choice Hitler quotations: “When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side, and you will not get me on your side,’ I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to me already.

A people lives forever. What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants however now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.’” “The German school is a part of the National Socialist Educational order. It is its obligation to form the national socialistic personality in cooperation with the other educational powers of the nation, but by its distinctive educational means.”

I know, your school is different. Maybe in degree, but not in terms of the overall long-term goal of today’s liberal educators who have designs on your children who will one day serve the State. Millions of parents gleefully pack their children in the big yellow buses and wonder why they end up loving Big Brother. From K-12 and beyond, the State has been their surrogate parent.

The State hates competition. It may be just one homeschooling family in Germany today, but don’t be surprised if in 10 or 15 years all children will become the educational wards of the State.

In USA: If You LOOK White, You ARE A Target. If You Don’t GET This…You’re An Idiot

This is very eye opening.

 

In USA: If You LOOK White, You ARE A Target. If You Don’t GET This…You’re An Idiot

I am sickened that more white people do not care about themselves. Teachers & Professors teach white-hatred from cradle to the grave in American schools and colleges and you act like this is not real..

Everyday, my husband faithfully posts on the crimes, murder and mayhem perpetrated by the sons of Obama against white people.  Sadly, when the Zimmerman case was going on, we got tweeted constantly.  Now, when David posts on these horrific crimes–rarely does anyone tweet, facebook, re-blog etc. Right now, the only thing we can do is REPORT this.. I have about 10 faithful soldiers with me on twitter that tweet these horrendous acts of violence with the ‘hash-tag’,  ”#BlackPrivilege”.  Unfortunately, they are the only ones that do this for white people and the victims of these atrocious crimes.

Its incredible that white people are so damned brainwashed that THEY believe they are the ‘racists.’  How can this be possible?  I don’t get it, people. White on black crime is almost non-existent in USA.  There are thousands of black on white race-hate crimes posted on sites that we link up–sites that we believe to be honest-hearted people who care.  Yet, white people don’t give a damn about themselves. AT ALL.

I will tell you for one last time:  If you are white, or look white, you are a target.  Just as the blacks were targeted in the south in the 1960′s, YOU are now the target.

 Racism is a very serious thing.  It is an affront to God.  For people to be beaten, raped and robbed just because they are perceived as being weak or having a different skin color–that, in itself – is an incredible evil.  That more Jews are not helping in this fight against race-hatred isastounding to me.  This vile insanity is not much different than how the Jews were dealt in Nazi-Germany. Targeted just for BEING Jews.   And, if that is too much for so many “Jews” to believe in, start sifting through these crimes on this blog.  I am ashamed of ‘Jews’ AND ‘Christians’ in America.  All you seem to care about is tweeting the latest thing that the impossible jackass, Obama does instead of worrying about your own neighbor.  It is appalling.

In America, the white is now as the Jew was in NAZI-Germany. and if you don’t think so, you are an idiot.  WE are on the right side of history, you fake “Jews” and “Christians” are NOT.

STEP AWAY FROM MY CHILD

Leave a comment

This is from Girls Just Wanna Have Guns.

My children belong to my wife and myself not the community.

We have not seen the community provide food or clothes or

 medicine for our children.

The community did not set up with our children when

they were sick or crying with teething pains.

So Melissa Harris-Perry can go pound sand.

So says Pappa and Momma Grizzly.

Earlier this week, I viewed a video ad presented by MSNBC commentator, Melissa Harris-Perry, stating that children do not belong to their parents – they belong to the community instead.  When pressed further, she stated that parents cannot clothe, feed, house or educate their children alone.

That comment struck the same cord within me as Obama’s “you didn’t build that” and I would beg to differ.  My children belong with me, but not to me.  Nor do they belong to my community, of which they are also a part.  It is our family that is essential to their existence, but not our community.  We shelter, protect, clothe and feed them.

I allow them to attend public school because I feel the social interaction is important, and educate them privately where I feel there is a lack or misinformation being presented.  If we packed our bags tomorrow and moved across the country, the one constant would be my husband and I.

Whatever path they take in life, two things will never change – the mother who carried them and has cared for them every day of their lives, and the father who loved, protected and provided for them.  No amount of government interference or rhetoric will ever change that.  Our female bodies are not merely a means to an end for community or government to acquire children or soldiers.

I have read commentary from both sides.  The first case cited for private control of the family is Nazi Germany and the horrifically cruel policies implemented by indoctrinated Hitler youth.

If one feels that Germany is a poor and outdated example of what happens when government reaches into the family and claims its children for itself, then we need to look at modern day China.  The ultimate form of familial control rests in their relentless enforcement of a one-child policy among certain populations and in defined geographical areas.

These policies have, in numerous instances, resulted in forcing women pregnant with second children to abort their child or face severe fines.  Government has, effectively, claimed “ownership” of the child, deeming it too costly and enforcing its extermination. In such cases, women do not have the right to their bodies, nor their unborn child.

The government reaches into what should be sacred space and cajoles, intimidates and, in some cases by force, rips the child from its mother before it is even born.  While I intellectually understand the reason for strict controls, an exhausting increase in population without an exponential rise in resources, the methodology of exercising such control has proved brutally inhumane.

Taking the tack that it is community, and not family, responsible for our children, one is called upon to examine the stark conditions of the Soviet orphanages.  Historically, undermanned and under-funded, in the best of circumstances, these are not happy conditions for the children who live within those walls.

They wait for parents who never return for them – they hope for new parents who never materialize, and bear the stigma of “orphan” when old enough to be released.  While American orphanages and foster care may seem much more idyllic in comparison, statistics show that they simply cannot do the job as well as dedicated parents.

From a purely intellectual standpoint, it stands to reason that the children who have been carried, nurtured and protected for nine months before they ever drew their first breath do, indeed, belong to and with their mothers.  They share our DNA, sometimes down to our worst quirks or bad habits.  Yet, we are to believe that our children are not our own?

That they instead “belong” to the community?  That the community can do a better job than parents, that they have a better understanding of the individual needs of each child than those who live with that child each day?

Perhaps community has more resources than we do privately, but I can tell you no one wants more, dreams bigger or sacrifices as willingly as loving and responsible parents.

As for myself, I will tell you that community has not offered once to sit with a feverish, vomiting baby; searched relentlessly for a pair of lost shoes; or held my hand while I tried to talk down an over-stimulated, challenging second grader.

So, Melissa Harris-Perry you can tell your friends that even in the worst possible moments, the child is mine.  You may now lean back and step away from my child.
