2. What I See
in particular is how people are just "following" their leader and not "listening" to him. Hitler was able to convince people that wrong was right. And Bush is certainly trying to do that.

Nothing daring about posting such a sentiment on DU. Far more daring would be the poster who argued against such an appellation. You may or may not be correct, but you're not daring.

10. The Nazification of America
The Nazification of America

Nazification: the foisting of the totalitarian pattern on a country, including state support for corporations, militaristic imperialism, suppression of constitutional freedoms, and the seizure of dictatorial power by the regime in control.

Phase 3
The Leader Destroys Elections and Appoints Himself Dictator


March 24, 1933

The Enabling Act

On March 24, 1933, the Reichstag passed the Law for Terminating the Suffering of People and Nation, also known as the Enabling Law, essentially granting Adolf Hitler dictatorial power. There was no further need for elections because the Fuhrer/Dictator made all the decisions!

Since the Nazis had only been able to gain a 44% plurality in the Reichstag in the March 5, 1933 elections, Hitler looked for another way to establish a full dictatorship.

* Herman Gring--later to become the head of Germany's armed forces--declared that there was no further need for State governments. So over the next few weeks, in each of the legal Weimar states the local Nazi organizations instigated riots and then summarily replaced the elected state government by appointed Nazi Reich Commissioners to quell the disorder.

* The Nazi legislators sponsored the Enabling Act, a bill that gave Hitler dictatorial powers for four years. To make sure the law passed, the Nazis imprisoned Communists and created propaganda campaigns to influence public opinion. Just days before the vote on the bill, the Nazis held a staged ceremony in Potsdam in which Hitler was depicted as a conservative national leader, not the head of a radical party. Hitler promised that the Enabling Act would only benefit the German people.

The moment the bill passed, however, the German democratic constitution was abrogated and Nazi Party rule became absolute. Hitler immediately invoked the new law to rescind the democratic freedoms of the Weimar Republic and to dissolve political parties and organizations.


Phase 3
The Leader Destroys Elections and Appoints Himself Dictator


November, 2002

Homeland Security Act


In the 2000 and now again in the midterm 2002 elections, electronic voting has meant that our democratic right to have our votes counted fairly and accurately has been taken from us by the Bush junta.

Since we now suffer under the situation where there is no opposition to the criminal Bush regime--most Democrats having effectively become pawns of the Republicans--then none of the state election frauds will be investigated. We can't be sure that key races such as that of Mondale in Minnesota and Carnahan in Missouri were not the result of massive vote fraud. We can be sure that the Florida gubernatorial race was completely fixed.

This sinister phase 3 of the Nazification of America is best understood by reviewing some of the information that Greg Palast has made available. Palast is the investigative reporter for BBC and the Observer who first exposed the 2000 Florida vote crimes.

94,000 people -- over half of them African American --were on a "scrub list" in Florida, resulting in their being blocked from voting in the 2000 election. Did Florida rectify this mistake before the 2002 election? Fuhgeddaboudit! Those voters as of 2004 have not yet been reinstated in Florida.

Electronic, touch screen voting is the basis for election fraud:

* votes can easily be lost through "software glitches"

* Democratic votes can become Republican votes and no one is the wiser

The "touch" screen computers are made by ES&S, the vendor chosen by Katherine Harris, Florida Secretary of State and current congressperson. The lobbyist who sold that company's system to Jeb and Katherine is Sandy Mortham, founder of Women for Jeb and Harris' predecessor as Secretary of State. Mortham was the person who instigated the scam in 1998 to find black voters who could be disqualified.

12. Be ascared ..be very ascared!
The similarities between 1930s Germany and what's happening here and now is eerily uncanny.

However, Dubya is no Hitler, not by a longshot. Hitler was a tough, possessed zealot with the varied background of a street thug, as where W is just another spoiled brat-elitist-fratboy ass-clown. That's why "they" chose him to head this power grab; he was a likely candidate to brainwash a "makeover" on. He's weak minded and weak willed, in other words, susceptible. Gruff? Pathological? Yes, but not as "dumb" as his handlers and the media public relations apparatus would instruct you to believe.

Him alone I don't fear ...but him, coupled with insane neocons and pentagon hawks and Armageddon evangelicals coupled with America's well deserved reputation for apathy and ignorance, now that scares the shit outta me.

13. Hitler was much more involved in coming up with the theories...
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 07:45 AM by Crankie Avalon
...behind his movement. Bush is more the mascot placed in front of a cabal.

Hitler's and Bush II's public iconography and myth-making are strikingly similar, though.

Nazism and American neo-Conservatism have many deeper, theoretical similarities, whether or not people feel comfortable when that fact is pointed out.
