After all of the discussions on ATS over the last week, I worry that there is a massive change in public sentiment taking place.
If you've studied history, you know what this is about. The German population didn't just wake up one day with a hatred of all Jewish people, all
gay people, artists, writers and poets. They were CONDITIONED to hate, they were lied to, coerced, bombarded and brainwashed into viewing millions of
people as enemies - worthy of killing.
It didn't matter what the individual had done, or not done, all were deemed to be worthy of attack.
Take a look at the following, and tell me whether you think these quotes are from Nazis about their enemies, or people today, in our countries,
speaking about all Muslim people...
I've removed identifying words, to give you a challenge, but the sentiment is unchanged.
It is time to face facts. [REMOVED] is an enemy to [REMOVED]. It is time to deal with them
I think these mad [REMOVED] underestimate white man.There are plenty of people ready to crush them like worms.
Maybe they are the few who understand the futility of [REMOVED] forced upon us and are taking a stand. Some might say racism.
As for the [REMOVED] terrorizing countries,why should we pander to them?
I cannot stand [REMOVED]. I find them to be savages, ignorant and expansionist
It really is embarrassing to call them humans.
History says [REMOVED] was a pedophile, a murderer, a savage, an idolator, a rapist, a thief, illiterate, a liar
Can you work out which of these above quotes are from Germans in WW2?
Wait for it...
None of them are, they are all taken from posts on ATS, most from the same thread, all from individuals attacking Islam and Muslim people in
These people are not attacking the minority who protested or acted violently, they are attacking millions of people, combining them all into one group
to hate. It doesn't matter if the Muslim person is moderate, gay, a poet, a thinker, man woman or child, these opinions are expressed against ALL
We have groups of people in our western nations now planning a counter protest against all Muslim protests. We have the same people screaming about
their own freedoms, attacking the freedoms of others because a minority abuse them.
There are large numbers of complete idiots currently planning to attack the freedoms of others in their country, for protesting against the freedoms
they have. This is an insane circle of hypocrisy, with both sides of the protesting crowds guilty of complete and utter stupidity.
What concerns me is that the number of those falling for this propaganda war is rising. It might have started out with the knuckle-dragging
white-power neo Nazi, but it has quickly spread. Normally the posters on ATS are more rational than this, but I fear that this is a microcosm of what
might be happening out in the real world away from forums.
We have several xenophobic groups planning to protest or show the pathetic little YouTube video in the coming months. We have warnings that radical
Islamic groups are likely to increase in number in response to both the original video and the coming clashes in the streets. Likewise, it's
reasonable to assume that racist and nationalist groups will also increase their numbers as a result of this.
We are walking into a storm, people are buying the polarization, people are willingly falling for the crusade mentality. And some people - some
nations - will benefit greatly while they watch us all fall.
I welcome the discussion, but can we please keep this limited to discussion about the polarization of nations and people, who is responsible, what
people are experiencing and personal perceptions? We've had enough discussion about the film, the cartoons and the protests outside of our
I intend this thread to be a discussion about how this is going to play out, whether you think you are falling for the propaganda (whoever is
responsible) and what you plan to do about it.
Please leave your opinions of religious groups at the door, it's not welcome in this discussion.
