ChrisF, I agree... It is like Apples and Oranges, but we are still comparing fruit.
What attracted me to this thread in a way, was that I had recently posted a thread comparing the American Flag Pins to Nazi Party Pins,
Barack, Don't Forget Your Nazi Party Pin...
. Once again apples to oranges in many
ways, but still easily compared and contrasted.
Maybe we are seeing Nazi-esque fascist actions and policies by our leaders because we are deluded, or perhaps we describe the actions and policies we
see as Nazi-esque because that is 'our' best point of reference. If you look around ATS enough you should find truthful information that our
current President's grandfather got caught giving the Nazi's money. To many, the current President is fulfilling his Grandfather's wishes.
But Yes, it is Apples and Oranges. Instead of fanatic fascists leading Germans blindly, there are fanatic fascists leading Americans blindly. Where
Hitler thought of Germany as the third incarnation of the Holy Roman Empire, Bush envisions America as greater than the Roman Empire.
I have to say, it fascinates me (hmmm, I bet fascinate and fascism come from the same root) to see all the 'Nazi-esque' propaganda that is in use
today. It fascinates me at how blatant some of it is, but how most Americans are blinded to it. Nothing would break your own Grandparents hearts
more than for them to think that they had 'stopped the Nazis', only to have the fascist 'movement' emigrate to the United States, and take over
Perhaps the National Police are not modern SA in America, but the parallels can be seen by many. Much of what I see happening in the United States
today sickens me, that much is for sure.
