Liberal Nazism

History is the sum total of things that could have been avoided”
- Konrad Adenauer, First Chancellor of the Federal Republic of West Germany.

I can remember the feeling I had when he spoke. At last, I said, here’s somebody who can get us out of this mess.
(Campbell, Susan Bartoletti. Hitler Youth: Growing Up in Hitler’s Shadow. New York: Scholastic, Inc. 2005, Pg. 19. )

He was so convincing on the speaker’s platform and appeared to be so sincere in what he said that the majority of his listeners were ready to believe almost anything good about him because they wanted to believe it.

As time went on, it became clear that he thought of himself as the Messiah.

He was the greatest orator Germany had ever known. Most amazing of all: he did it without a teleprompter. The comparisons between Hitler and Obama, while offensive to many, were inevitable. They both had the benefit of oratory skills and could deliver a stirring speech with minimal substance. They pitched the same ideology, “Everything must change!”

Hitler used the Great Depression as his chance to seize power. The chanting, sloganeering, and fainting crowds—we’ve seen this all before, and the outcome wasn’t very constructive. It would be temerarious to fail to study the history of other cult leaders who rose to power at breakneck speed. The same Great Depression allowed FDR to get away with making radical changes in America.

In attestation to the incompetence of our public school system, liberals never tire of claiming that Hitler was the ultimate right-winger. As usual, they are completely wrong. Hitler’s party was the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. Liberals are always screeching about how conservatives are fascists. Jonah Goldberg does a masterful job of describing the fascist playbook:

•Create crises.
•Make appeals for “unity.”
•Celebrate martial values.
•Blur the lines between the public and private sectors.
•Use the mainstream media to glamorize the state and its programs.
•Make a lot of noise about “post partisanship.”
•Form a cult of personality around the national leader.

Goldberg has provided a pretty good description of the Barack Obama platform. Conservatives are not fascists. True conservatives place the highest value on individual liberty, which is as irreconcilable with the current liberal agenda as it was with Hitler’s Nazism.
