Holocaust Democrats, Part 2
By Ellis Washington
August 20, 2015

Propaganda works best when those who are being manipulated are confident that they are acting on their own free will.

~ Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's Minister of Propaganda

Like the Nazis, Democrats believe their opponents are evil... Philosophers, poets and scientists lined up to pledge allegiance to the Thousand Year Reich.

~ Don Feder

Work to 'change laws,' not 'change hearts.'

~ Hillary Clinton to Black Lives Matter leaders

This is part 2 of my essay series on the historic phenomenon I call 'Holocaust Democrats.' Holocaust Democrats, Part 1 was published a few days ago. These essay are based on an article titled, "Top 10 Ways Democrats Are Like Nazis" by the great Jewish conservative intellectual Don Feder. This compelling and courageous essay written two days before Christmas 2011 exposes the legions of obvious historical, political and policy connections between Nazi National Socialism and Obama Democrat Socialism.

I have a long history with the revelatory writings of Don Feder. Over 30 years ago as a college student I read Feder religiously along with other conservative intellectuals like Bill Buckley, Norman Podhoretz, Midge Decter, Phyllis Schalfly, George Will, P.J. O'Rourke, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Bill Bennett, and many others in a weekly paper, called "The Conservative Chronicle." Later I remember quoting Don Feder's prescient ideas as epigrams in my 2008 book, The Nuremberg Trials: Last Tragedy of the Holocaust.

For context's sake, I will quote the second part of Feder's original article verbatim followed by my own critical analysis to deduce if his suppositions are historically viable and intellectually precise. Feder writes:
    6. Anti-progress – The Democratic Party is the Sierra Club in office. It opposes coal-mining, domestic oil production and nuclear power. If they could, Democrats would happily ban the internal-combustion engine. In 1935, the Third Reich passed a precursor of today's environmental legislation (the Reich Nature Protection Law), which required "environmental effect reports" (environmental impact statements?) for any construction that might alter the landscape.

    Nazi biologist Ernst Lehmann explained: "We recognize that separating humanity from nature, from the whole of life, leads to humankind's own destruction and the death of nations. Only through the re-integration of humanity into the whole of nature can our people be made stronger." Sound familiar? Had it been published in Berlin in 1935, "Earth In Balance" would have become an instant classic.
Since the advent and flourishing of humanism, atheism, and genocidal liberalism in the Age of Enlightenment (1600-1800) which reached its apotheosis in the Christian genocide of the French Revolution (1789-99), every act, policy and law of the Democrat Socialist Party only contravenes the prologue of Jefferson's Declaration of Independence (1776) and it's sacred promise that all American citizens can enjoy: "...Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness."

Jefferson, following a Natural Law paradigm, borrowed heavily from the writings of political philosophers: Montesquieu, Blackstone and especially John Locke. And these great writers derived their ideas on law, politics, government, economics and philosophy from the Old Testament and God's mandate to Adam and Eve in Genesis 1:28, which reads: And God blessed them (Adam and Eve) and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and Multiply (have lots of babies), and Replenish the earth, and Subdue it (organize, cultivate) and Have dominion (power, authority, control) over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Also, the Progressive icon of the environmentalist movement, Rachel Carson's now patently discredited 1962 book, Silent Spring ultimately lead to the universal ban of the pesticide DDT lead by the United States in 1972, a genocidal policy that to this day has doomed between 450-500 millions of Black Africans to death, or a life of abject suffering and 'river blindness' due to malaria which DDT was the best remedy to counteract.
    7. Intellectual apologists – The left has dominated our college campuses since the 1960s. As early as 1931, the Nazis enjoyed far more support in German universities than with the general public – among both professors and students (the later through the National Socialist German Students). Philosophers, poets and scientists lined up to pledge allegiance to the Thousand Year Reich.

    Hitler railed at intellectuals. The Hitler Youth barbecued books. But if there's one thing intellectuals like even more than their pet theories it's the power to force them on the public, which is why every totalitarian regime has its intellectual running dogs. In 2012, watch for prominent economists (like Nobel laureate Paul Krugman), writers and scientists (especially the global warming crowd) to line up behind the man who celebrates himself as the smartest president since Thomas Jefferson.

Jewish book burning by Nazi students

Eric Metaxas in chapter 10 of his celebrated book, Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy (2011), in a subsection called "Where Books Are Burned . . ." in dramatic fashion chronicles the rise of Nazi book burning in early Nazi history just four months after Hitler assumed power on January 30, 1933. In May 1933, the Nazification of the German people continued in full force using two established Nazi tactics – Gleichschaltung (e.g., bringing together; forcing into line) a major Nazi policy initiative Vice-Chancellor Herman Göring referenced at the German Christians' Conference in Berlin the previous month. It preordained that everything in German society must fall in line with the Nazi worldview (Weltanschauung). This included the world of books and ideas being forced into a Nazi worldview, or if incompatible with Nazification, then systematically destroyed.

100 years before the Nazi era the famous poet, Heinrich Heine (1797-1856), a German Jew, foretold the apotheosis of Adolph Hitler's Nazi insanity writing: "Dort, wo man Bucher verbrennt, verbrennt man am Ende auch Menschen." Translation: Where books are burned, they will, in the end burn people, too.
    8. Anti-Jewish – Hitler's anti-Semitism is too well known to require elaboration. Less well known is that, like the liberal left, he was appreciative of Islam and viewed Muslims as allies. Haj Amin al-Husseini – Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and uncle to Yasser Arafat – spent World War II in Berlin and recruited a Muslim SS division in the Balkans. The degeneration of the Democratic Party from Harry S. Truman, who made the Jewish state possible, to Barack Hussein Obama (who would make the Jewish state impossible to maintain) is unprecedented. Obama's open contempt for Israel caused a heavily Jewish congressional district in New York to elect a Republican for the first time in 70 years in 2011.

    The Democratic think tank Center for American Progress compares Israel's fight for survival to segregation in the pre-Civil Rights era. Obama's ambassador to Belgium is reported to have remarked that a "distinction should be made between traditional anti-Semitism, which should be condemned and Muslim hatred for Jews (which should be tolerated?), which stems from the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians" – thus excusing the ongoing Kristallnacht in Europe, courtesy of the religion of peace. Should this be surprising from the president who sat in a pew of the Trinity United Church for 19 years and listened to Wright rant about "state terrorism against the Palestinians"? Obama's "The Audacity of Hope" was inspired by one of the Wright Reverend's sermons. In turn, Jeremiah gave an award to Louis, who called Judaism a "gutter religion."
Haj Amin al-Husseini (1897-1974), was the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem from 1922-37; an utterly evil man who with demonic and fanatical zeal collaborated with top Nazi commanders like Himmler and Eichmann to put into place Hitler's "Final Solution" to murder all the Jews of Europe. He visited Auschwitz concentration camp with Eichmann, and relentlessly demanded more effective methods in the exterminating of the Jews, based on subsequent testimony at the Nuremburg Trials by Dieter Wisliceny, senior Eichmann aide and SS-Hauptsturmführer. To demonstrate his mutual hatred of the Jewish people he shared with Hitler and the Nazis, in a German Newsreel recorded Nov. 28, 1941, the Grand Mufti said, "The Führer confirmed that the 'struggle against a Jewish homeland in Palestine would be part of the struggle against the Jews.'"

In 1943, Himmler used the Grand Mufti's support in recruiting Muslims into the SS for Special Forces deployed in the Balkans; under the Mufti's zealous leadership, the infamous 13th Mountain Division "Handschar" of the Waffen-SS was created with over 20,000 Croatian Muslim volunteers. This division also witnessed fighting against Yugoslav communist forces under Marshall Tito, and joined in ethnic cleansing massacres against Jews and other "undesirables" in the region. The result: Over 800,000 Jews, Yugoslav Serbs, and Romanians (gypsies) were killed, most at the hands of the savage forces of the Handschar division.
    9. Practice the big lie – The Nazis were infamous for their propaganda techniques – which were actually pioneered by the Bolsheviks. Goebbels advised: "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe." Although the competition is fierce, probably the Democrats' most outrageous lie is that they are for the middle class and all of the problems of Main Street can be laid at the door of Republicans and Wall Street.

    Democratic solicitude for Middle America is manifested by: giving us chronic 9% unemployment, an anti-progress tax system, crippling domestic energy production (leading to pain at the pump, among other effects), growing the national debt to shrink the economy (Obama increased the debt almost 30% in less than 3 years), leaving our borders unguarded so that blue-collar workers have to compete with hordes of illegal aliens, and a government-created crisis in the mortgage-housing market, putting homeownership out of reach for young families for decades. Democrats' declaration of solidarity with the middle class is as sincere as Hitler's assurances throughout the 1930s that he wanted peace – up until the moment he invaded Poland. While assuring us they have our interests at heart, Democrats invade our bank accounts and pension plans.
One of my Facebook Friends and former student, Jerry Smith, recently wrote to me regarding whether Anarchy could be a viable governing policy over the chaos we currently have in America now? "I find it [Anarchy] to be 1000x better than our current system which claims to be capitalist, but is really state-sponsored capitalism and socialism." As a point of reference, Jerry linked to this article, "Brief explanation of Anarcho-Capitalism.

I replied: Jerry, this is a very interesting question and it has a degree of irony in that many sectors of society, particularly Black America, has been inside the abyss of anarchy since LBJ's so-called 'Great Society' programs in the 1960s touted as government solutions to 'help' Black families have a degree of economic security. However, the Socialist Braintrust (including FDR's New Deal, LBJ's Great Society and Obama's New Deal, Part 2) knew full well that these Welfare State government remedies would have their intended effect once the father was removed from the family including causing societal Anarchy, even Nihilism, but also including exploding Ghetto lifestyle, poverty, ignorance, crime, promiscuity and pathology... but most important causing society to become perpetual victims to Socialism slavery. In other words, once the Left destroyed the family and the Framer's Judeo-Christian worldview, every institution in society would eventually fall into the deconstruction, chaos, anarchy and nihilism that we witness today.
    10. Come to power democratically, retain power dictatorially – Hitler came to power through the democratic process, then proceeded to eliminate his opponents, by banning competing parties, dissolving trade unions and, eventually, sending the leadership of both to concentration camps. Like the Nazis, Democrats believe their opponents are evil. They've done their best to demonize the Tea Parties and talk radio. Periodically, they threaten to revive the Fairness Doctrine and apply it rigorously to the only media they don't control. Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe says that in 2007, he overheard a conversation between Hillary Clinton and Barbara Boxer in which they agreed that something had to be done about talk radio and "there's got to be a legislative fix for this."

    Democrats also seek to stifle dissent through hate-crimes laws and campaign spending limits. Would they go so far as to imprison opponents of the regime? The president has done a complete about-face on indefinite detention of suspected terrorists, which he swears would never, ever be used against U.S. citizens. In 2009, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said future terrorists would likely come from the ranks of Second Amendment activists, anti-tax protestors, proponents of border security and disgruntled Iraq war veterans. Connect the dots.
In a 2010 essay published by WND.com, The Liberal-Muslim Axis, I wrote the following: "Since the end of World War II, I contended that we have an even more wicked, incorrigible enemy that Western civilization must fight, but unlike Hitler's conspicuous legions of Brownshirts and SS shock troops goose-stepping in front of the Reichstag, this enemy of modern times, this Liberal-Muslim Axis has as its greatest weapon deception, lies and Machiavellian tactics. They hide in the halls of Congress, the White House, the courts, behind 501(c)(3) organizations. The Muslim Axis powers hide behind Allah, Muhammad, the Quran, women's burqas, among civilians; inside Mosques, caves and desolate places in the mountains of Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, as well as inside the halls of power in England, France and America."

I continued, "Since the 1860s and the advent of the scientific cult of Darwinian evolution (so essential to the Liberal-Muslim Axis), the Judeo-Christian traditions found in Natural Law philosophy have been meticulously removed from the rule of law. Under perverse notions of fairness, equality, egalitarianism (which is an equality of results), President Obama and his homeland security secretary, Janet Napolitano, as well as their equivalents across the world, force law-abiding citizens to undergo increasingly invasive procedures to board a plane. Every time a Muslim attempts or commits a terrorist attack on an airplane the Liberal-Muslim Axis therefore places more laws on our backs."

When Hillary Clinton was recently forced to meet with several leaders of the so-called "Black Lives Matters" Movement, in an unscripted moment this Democrat Socialist blurted out the truth about how all fascists and socialists understand the use of political power to enslave men by force (Communism) or by voting (Socialism) when she said, "Work to change laws, not change hearts." Thus Hillary's Nazi Weltanshauung (Worldview) and Gleichschaltung (forcing into line) would please Hitler very much for it so succinctly encapsulates the essence of the Nazi-Progressive fascist State so demonstrative throughout history beginning with the anti-monarchy and anti-Christian genocide of the Jacobins, Robespierre, Jean-Paul Marat and French Revolution (1789-99).

In essence Hitlery, Queen of the Holocaust Democrats, is commanding – Don't waste your time trying to change the minds and hearts of the People in the arena of ideas, but use the force of law and the Gestapo jack boot of the Democrat Secret Police to crush all dissent, to silence all contrary voices, to kill all those foolish enough to still believe in America's Judeo-Christian Republic.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said it best, Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal.
