"As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of children the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation."

"The only religion I respect is Islam. The only prophet I admire is the Prophet Muhammad."

~ Adolph Hitler

Anti-Semitic Origins of the Ghetto

According to the Encyclopedia Britannica a ghetto is a part of a city in which members of a minority group live, especially because of social, legal, or economic pressure. The term was originally used in Venice in 1516 to describe the part of the city to which Jews were restricted and segregated; ironically this Jewish ghetto in Venice had a relatively affluent population. Since historically ghettos were equated with invidious racial discrimination against the Jews whereby they were segregated by ethnicity to a street, or quarter, or a section of city so that legally imposed economic and other sanctions could be given against the Jews. One of the earliest historical examples of compulsory segregation of Jews was done by Muslims in Morocco in the year 1280. Their ethnically segregated ghettos were called millahs.

What would come to be a foreshadowing of the extreme lengths the ghetto system would be used to oppress ethnic minorities in America especially with Blacks, Jews, Irish, Hispanics, Indians (under the Indian Reservation 'Camps'), and later under the Nazis with the Jews, in many Muslim countries of the late middle ages and during the Enlightenment Age, included a very restrictive Ghetto Codes (de jure racialist policies); racialist codes so extreme that it even limited the sizes of houses, windows and doors. In America, these government-created racially segregated housing complexes built in every large and medium-sized cities throughout America, were ubiquitously called "Projects." Hitler and the Nazis called their 'Projects' Jewish ghettos and later Jewish Concentration Camps and Death Camps. Why were these invidious names given to these racially segregated enclaves? Because throughout history ghettos is where minority populations went to die, both in racist America under the Holocaust Democrat Partu and in fascist Germany under Hitler and the Nazis.

According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, forced segregation of Jews spread throughout Europe during the 14th and 15th centuries. The ghettos of Frankfurt-am-Main and the Prague Judenstadt (German: "Jew town") were renowned. In Poland and Lithuania, Jews were numerous enough to constitute a majority of the population in many cities and towns in which they occupied entire quarters. The genius of the Jewish people and the resilience of Jewish culture, however, was throughout the history of ghetto life to take the invidious racial segregation they were relegated to in Jewish ghettos and to turn those areas into enclaves of economic, social and cultural prosperity. Under Hitler and the Nazis this serendipitous view of Jewish ghetto life would soon take a more grotesque turn in Nazi Germany at the beginning of World War II.

Sealing Jews inside the tomb of the Warsaw Ghetto

Beginning on November 15, 1940, less than a year after the start of World War II, Hitler and the Nazis established a massive ghetto project to essentially serve as a prison to house Jews, Gypsies and other "undesirables" into very crowed areas of the cities of Eastern Europe, particularly Poland. The Nazis called these racially segregated ghettos, Jüdischer Wohnbezirk or Wohngebiet der Juden, meaning the Jewish quarter. In some cases these Nazi ghettos were the same city locations as traditional Jewish ghettos and Jewish quarters but not always (for example, there was a large Jewish ghetto in the German city of Frankfurt that existed as far back as the middle ages). The final development of the Nazis ghetto policy occurred on June 21, 1943, when Heinrich Himmler issued a decree ordering the closure of all ghettos in the East and their transformation into Nazi concentration camps (i.e., death camps).

According to the archives of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Holocaust Encyclopedia, following the German invasion of Poland on September 1, 1939, Warsaw suffered heavy air attacks and artillery bombardment. German troops entered Warsaw on September 29, shortly after its surrender. On November 23, 1939, German civilian occupation authorities required Warsaw's Jews to identify themselves by wearing white armbands with a blue Star of David. The German authorities closed Jewish schools, confiscated Jewish-owned property, and conscripted Jewish men into forced labor and dissolved prewar Jewish organizations.

On October 12, 1940, the Germans decreed the establishment of a ghetto in Warsaw. The decree required all Jewish residents of Warsaw to move into a designated area, which German authorities sealed off from the rest of the city in November 1940. The ghetto was enclosed by an imposing brick wall that was over 10 feet high, topped with barbed wire, and closely guarded to prevent movement between the ghetto and the rest of Warsaw, according to the archives of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Holocaust Encyclopedia. The population of the ghetto, increased by Jews compelled to move in from nearby towns, was estimated to be over 400,000 Jews. German authorities forced ghetto residents to live in an area of 1.3 square miles, with an average of 7.2 persons per room.

The grotesque suffering of the Jews living like rats inside the Warsaw Ghettos were of biblical proportions. The old, dilapidated buildings had no plumbing, there was acute shortages of food, insufficient clean water, and scarce fuel which grew even worse during the winter months. The conditions in these Jewish ghettos were so crowded that 8-10 people would have to live in one small room. The result of the Nazi Ghetto programs against the Jews: thousands died from disease, starvation, and malnutrition.

This led to the Warsaw Ghetto uprising in April 1943 by the Jews which as you can see from the headline of the venerable and psychotic New York Times actually blamed the Jews who fought against being sent by the tens of thousands like sheep to the slaughter – to Treblinka Concentration Camp to die, as "an over-reaction." Here is the compelling narrative citing the horrible toll the Nazi ghettos had on Jewish lives according to an article in the Holocaust Encyclopedia:
    On April 19, 1943, a new SS and police force appeared outside the ghetto walls, intending to liquidate the ghetto and deport the remaining inhabitants to the forced labor camps in Lublin district. The ghetto inhabitants offered organized resistance in the first days of the operation, inflicting casualties on the well-armed and equipped SS and police units. They continued to resist deportation as individuals or in small groups for four weeks before the Germans ended the operation on May 16. The SS and police deported approximately 42,000 Warsaw ghetto survivors captured during the uprising to the forced-labor camps at Poniatowa and Trawniki and to the Lublin/Majdanek concentration camp. At least 7,000 Jews died fighting or in hiding in the ghetto, while the SS and police sent another 7,000 to the Treblinka killing center.

    For months after the liquidation of the Warsaw ghetto, individual Jews continued to hide themselves in the ruins and, on occasion, attacked German police officials on patrol. Perhaps as many as 20,000 Warsaw Jews continued to live in hiding on the so-called Aryan side of Warsaw after the liquidation of the ghetto.

    On August 1, 1944, the Polish Home Army (Armia Krajowa; AK), a non-Communist underground resistance army with units stationed throughout German-occupied Poland, rose against the German occupation authorities in an effort to liberate Warsaw. The impetus for the uprising was the appearance of Soviet forces along the east bank of the Vistula River. The Soviets failed to intervene; the Germans eventually crushed the revolt and razed the center of the city to the ground in October 1944. Though they treated captured Home Army combatants as prisoners of war, the Germans sent thousands of captured Polish civilians to concentration camps in the Reich. 166,000 people lost their lives in the uprising, including perhaps as many as 17,000 Polish Jews who had either fought with the AK or had been discovered in hiding.

    When Soviet troops resumed their offensive on January 17, 1945, they liberated a devastated Warsaw. According to Polish data, only about 174,000 people were left in the city, less than six per cent of the prewar population. Approximately 11,500 of the survivors were Jews.
Unlike the ghettos Holocaust Democrats in America put Black people into by the tens of millions since the early 1600s, even to this day the majority of Black Americans continue to live in ghettos, or economically depressed and racially segregated neighborhoods, towns and cities, Nazi ghettoization often times existed temporarily, in some cases only a few days. In other cases, Jewish ghettos would exist for a few months or years. Why the difference in the two? The Germans Weltanschauung (worldview) understood the ghettos as an interim policy of expediency to control and segregate Jews under their ubiquitous policy of Gleichshaltung (bringing into line; forcing into line), while the Nazi leadership in Berlin considered more permanent means for the eradication of the Jewish population and the permanent solution to Europe's "Jewish problem."

Once Hitler and the Nazis implemented the "Final Solution" (the plan to murder all European Jews) beginning in late 1941, the Germans under the leadership of Heinrich Himmler began the gargantuan process of systematically demolishing the Jewish ghettos. All Nazi auxiliaries either shot ghetto residents, burying them mass graves, or deported them to other locations in German-controlled territories both inside Germany and throughout Europe. Most Jews were deported to what the Nazis called death camps or killing centers. German SS, the Reichwehr (Nazi Army), the Gestapo and other police officials also deported a small groups of Jews from ghettos to forced-labor camps (i.e., the narrative of Stephen Spielberg's 1993 historical epic movie, Schindler's List) and concentration camps.

Darwin's Evolution Atheism influenced Hitler and the Nazi Worldview

But like most of the evil political policies enacted by the Nazis against the Jews, Adolph Hitler, Rudolf Hess, Heinrich Himmler, Hermann Goering, Adolf Eichmann, Martin Bormann, and Reinhard Heydrick, the Nazis high leadership did not originate these ideas by themselves, but derived most of their anti-Semitic and White Aryan supremacist ideas from their systematic observation and study of history – particularly the Progressive-Socialists in America especially prior to the Civil War (1861-65) and their historical precursor's mistreatment of Blacks particularly under chattel slavery and later Jim Crow segregation, including for example, the Black Codes, Margaret Sanger's and the Planned Parenthood holocaust against Blacks (1916-present), President Woodrow Wilson and FDR's fanatical devotion to racialist eugenics, racial segregation, discrimination under Social Darwinism that viewed Black America little more than upright monkeys.

Incidentally with 99%-100% of all public schools and colleges of the American Academy subscribing without question to the racist evolution atheist ideas of Charles Darwin who wrote The Origin of Species (1859) with the original racist subtitle: "... Or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life." Also, Darwin write in his 1871 book The Descent of Man, "At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate and replace, the savage races [Blacks] throughout the world." Darwin was one of the favorite scientists and philosophers of Hitler, Himmler and the Nazis for Darwin's racist, atheist, eugenics, Social Darwinist, pseudo-scientific ideas comported perfectly with the Nazi anti-Semitic Weltanschauung (Worldview).

Progressive Ghettos without Walls for Black America without Hope

Historically speaking ghettos existed throughout the world since the late thirteenth century under the Muslims in North Africa, yet they have been perfected in America under Holocaust Democrats since the arrival of slavery to America in the early 1600s, particularly against Blacks and continue to thrive to this day where tens of millions of Black Americans are forced to live inside the invisible walls of thousands of ghettos and Projects throughout America. I was born in the ghettos of Detroit (some of the worst in America). My earliest memory as a child of 5-years-old was watching my neighborhood burn during the Detroit Riots of 1967. I know personally the evil conditions of ghetto life; how it kills your body from without before it kills your soul and your spirit from within; how it slowly kills your hope, your independence or what the French called your Joie de Vivre (Joy of Life).

So prevalent and existential is ghetto life in America regarding Black people that in 2015 under a two-term very popular Black president, Barack Hussein Obama, ghetto life for Blacks has only grown exponentially and Black unemployment is the worst since the Jim Crow Era of the early 1960s. Make no mistake about it, this Black Holocaust is by design of Holocaust Democrats for Progressives were founded on a virulently militant ideas like Darwinian evolution atheism, Social Darwinism, Socialism slavery, racialist eugenics and scientism, or the pseudo-scientific ideas that Black people are by nature inferior to Whites in every measure and thus by law must be segregated from Whites in every institution in society including – miscegenation laws, homes, neighborhoods, schools, public facilities, vocational choices, college faculty appointments, etc...

Divide-and-conquer has for hundreds of years been a successful stratagem of the racist Progressive Revolution where through Progressive-Socialist policies like FDR's New Deal, LBJ's Great Society (ironically called, "War on Poverty"), by which poverty was perpetually established as the separation of ghettos from existing, suburbanized or private neighborhoods. The higher poverty arose among Blacks and other minority groups, the greater their chances of that group out of their obsession and rage to continue voting for Holocaust Democrats into perpetuity. LBJ infamously said, "If I pass that [1964 Civil Rights] Act I'll have those niggers voting Democrat for the next 200 years." LBJ was right! Tragically the Republicans for the most part abandoned Black America after Holocaust Democrats destroyed the post-Civil War political policies to integrate Black people into American society of the Reconstruction Era (1865-1877). Since that time Black America has for the past 140 years been in a de facto sense re-enslaved by the Holocaust Democrat Party in America.

These Machiavellian tactics would in turn reproduce constraining social prospects and inequalities in society. But this sounds counterintuitive: Why would a historically enslaved, oppressed, ethnic minority group like Black America be so devoted to the Holocaust Democrat Party, a majority White race who oppresses them to this day in ghettos in every city in America and lock them behind invisible walls Hitler and the Nazis called concentration camps, but Wilson, FDR, LBJ, Obama and the Holocaust Democrat Party call the "Projects"?

How can Blacks and Whites be more racially segregated and unequal after 80 years of FDR's New Deal policies costing hundreds of billions, and 50 years after LBJ's War on Poverty which alone cost the U.S. economy $22 trillion (with $14 trillion projected over the next 10 years). Why is society more segregated by race and ghetto life more rampant and deadly 50-60 years after the African-American Civil Rights Era (1955–1968), in which Blacks and Whites occupy different neighborhoods of significantly unequal quality? That's why I call the U.S. Supreme Court decision to end racial segregation in the public schools, Brown v. Board of Education (1954) one of the biggest frauds against Blacks in the history of American Constitutional Law.

The answer to the questions above is from the beginning Socialist-Progressives or Holocaust Democrats wanted this existential inequality. Because societal chaos gets them political power. For example, look at the "Racial" Provisions of FDR's FHA Underwriting Manual of 1936, included the following guidelines which exacerbated the segregation issue: "Recommended restrictions should include provision for: prohibition of the occupancy of properties except by the race for which they are intended ... Schools should be appropriate to the needs of the new community and they should not be attended in large numbers by inharmonious racial groups." This meant that Blacks, Asians, Hispanics, Jews and other ethnic minorities were so constricted by racist Progressive federal policies that they could only obtain mortgage loans in certain economically depressed areas. This caused an enormous increase in racial segregation in housing and the ever-expansion of ghetto life, urban poverty and its attendant corollaries – promiscuity, ignorance, crime, pathology in the United States – an existential dystopia Holocaust Democrats allow to kill the hopes and dreams of millions of Black Americans to this day.

Also, Adolph Hitler was a master of controlling and enslaving people through subtle, virtually invisible means. For example, he said, "As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of children the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation." Using children as political pawns was likewise proven reprehensible tactics used by tyrants throughout history as Lenin ("Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted."), Stalin, Mussolini, Hitler (e.g., "Hitler's Jungen-Youth), Mao, Woodrow Wilson, FDR, LBJ and Obama.

Look at the first picture above: Hitler needed strong, tall brick walls reaching 10 feet to keep Jews inside the precursor to the concentration camps and death camps ubiquitously called ghettos. In Black America, in 2015 such barriers to keep tens of millions of Black people inside ghettos in every city and town in America are no longer necessary. But why? Because Socialism Slavery has achieved in 400 years what Hitler and the Nazis could not do in 12 – Holocaust Democrats have enslaved the mind, the Soul and the collective Spirt of Black America.

The result – In 2015 under a Black president there exists in America thousands of Progressive Ghettos without Walls as Concentration Camps and Death Camps for Black America without Hope or a viable future.
