Only the Führer Knew…'
1944 the young German fighters in the panzer divisions knew perfectly
well that fighting under the guns of the Allied fleet in Normandy
was madness. On the Ost Front they were equally aware that
the order to "hold at all costs" was grinding their elite
units into dust and robbing them of their unquestioned advantage,
tactical flexibility. However, their faith in Adolf Hitler remained
undiminished – they blamed these suicidal orders on the high command,
on the regular army generals, and repeated this slogan to each other,
"If only the Führer knew…"
conservatives are much like that. They are quite aware that the
United States government is working actively against the best interests
of the people of this country. The failure to defend our borders,
the draconian and unconstitutional assault on our God-given right
of self defense, the mass murders of the unborn, the transformation
of the public school system into left wing indoctrination centers
– conservatives are aware of these things. But there exists this
huge disconnect – constantly one hears the same mantra, "Don’t
worry, the adults are in charge now."
they had but eyes to see they would see that it wasn’t liberals
who recently announced a plan to send fifteen billion extorted dollars
to Africa, ostensibly to fight the AIDS epidemic that is depopulating
a continent. It wasn’t the liberals who declared, "Islam is
a religion of peace," ignoring history and common sense. It
wasn’t the liberals who tried to sneak through a general amnesty
for illegal aliens and who failed to take any action whatsoever
to protect the unborn or the Second Amendment. And it is certainly
not Al Gore who has dreamed up this horrific plan of attack against
a third-rate country in the Middle East, claiming that we will not
forget 911, an action in which Iraq had no part.
Josef Goebels and Adolf Hitler were well aware, a big lie works
best. I’m astounded when "conservatives" call me a wimp
and a communist because I refuse to face up to the imagined threat
posed by Sadaam Hussein. Well guys, it wasn’t Sadaam Hussein who
used tanks to kill Americans in Waco! You can take this to the bank
– I’m against their wars of aggression, their war on some
drugs, and their attack on our right to own weapons – how this is
un-American eludes me. I’ve got George Washington and all the founders
on my side. None of who were wimps or communists!
course, I’m often reminded that this business of a Constitutional
Republic was decided on the battlefield, in the "late unpleasantness"
as they daintily refer to the destruction of the South by government
mercenaries. Then why do we pretend to honor the history of this
very same Constitutional Republic?
we do not. These same conservatives who cheer lustily whenever Señor Bush shows his face must not be aware that he cooked up a deal with
Ted Kennedy to radically increase the budget of the Department of
Education, which determines what will be taught in the public schools.
Hint: they won’t be talking much about George Washington; you can
count on that. Francis Marion, Nathaniel Green, Light Horse Harry
Lee, and those pesky French are given short shrift in school these
days. Just dead white males. Let’s Roll eh?
makes me physically ill when I hear a "conservative" crack
jokes about drug pushers being sent to jail where they will encounter
homosexual rape and other horrors which make our prisons so disgustingly
bad that we owe an apology to the Inquisition. Yet these same folks
deplore the Nazis who after all, were only acting against "Jews,
Gypsies, homosexuals, political undesirables and other anti-social
elements." They had it coming right? Rule of law? Naw, too
complicated to fit in a slogan. Constitution? So what? To paraphrase
Hitler, that is nothing but "…a scrap of paper."
the Führer knows all about that…
can always tell when you are getting close to what soldiers call
the "op area." There is a stink of putrefaction, burnt
powder and charred vegetation. It is the stink of war.
probably my imagination but I seem to smell that dreadful stench
again – like a hint of the devil’s own cologne, as the war madness
spreads and the propaganda machine goes into overdrive. Even among
those who support this coming war I hear the same fears that I’m
expressing. That this is going to be more than we bargained for
– that we are on the brink of 1914, again.
Clinton’s crazed assault on Serbian Christians with all the poorly
constructed atrocity tales devised to whip us into a murderous frenzy
in support of his drug running Al Queda buddies in Kosovo. As many
of us predicted, it has led to the ethnic cleansing of the Serbs
from that area, the burning or destruction of some four thousand
Christian churches and a major step forward in realizing the goal
of a "greater Albania," however oxymoronic that may sound
to civilized folks.
only the Führer knew?" Well, last I looked Señor Bush has failed
to pull so much as one soldier out of the Balkans since he took
office two years ago. This despite his public performances where
he routinely talks of tracking down Al Queda and wiping them out.
He certainly would not have to look far if that really was his purpose
– they are right there in Kosovo, laughing at us.
was hard to miss the sounds of silence emanating from the caring
and nurturing antiwar alliances of the left – those who claim to
simply want an "…end to war and racism," because in their
opinion no war ever solves anything. Unless, one assumes, that war
is directed against Christians or former allies of the United States.
I wonder why they can’t make up their minds about this latest foray
into madness? After all, there are Christians in Baghdad – we can
at least kill them…
process of deconstruction usually proceeds at a faster pace when
the Marxists control the "smart bombs." Or so I thought
– I should have known from then-candidate Bush’s reticence on the
issue that he was unlikely to take a principled stand on wars of
aggression. Events have proven that Bush’s thirst for blood not
only exceeds Billy Jeff’s but there is that added down side that
he is more focused – no Monica to distract ole Dubya while he yaks
on the phone with his generals.
it interesting that both these two groups work so well together?
The Left might be said to include the Democratic Party, the Teacher’s
Unions, Big Media, the Socialist Workers Party and all the various
front groups behind which they hide. You can identify them easily
– they want more laws, higher taxes, a ban on private gun ownership
(big one for them) and they blather constantly about the wonders
of murdering unborn children and openly endorse sexual depravity.
They scorn the religion of Christ. How this differs from communism
this differs from the Republicans is the real question. Let’s see
how that works.
Neo-Conservatives, who are the vanguard of the Republican Party
these days, are for tax cuts, yet want greatly increased government
spending. Don’t worry about where the bucks are coming from
tough guy – we’ll just print it up! They claim to believe in smaller
government but endorse monstrosities like Homeland Security
and the Education Department. They are for gun rights they claim,
yet call for more enforcement of blatantly unconstitutional gun
you doubt my word how do you explain their assistance to statist
icons like the now legendary Chief Moose in his post-sniper assault
on gun owners in Maryland – even supplying manpower in the form
of goons from the BATF and FBI in their trendy SWAT costumes. I
guess ole Moose assumes that if they arrest enough decent citizens
they’ll eventually catch those white militia types he remains convinced
are behind the sniper shootings. Everything you ever wanted to know
about affirmative action is there in Chief Moose – incompetence,
racism and a loving relationship with the central government.
only the Führer Knew", eh? Unless he somehow missed it,
I’d guess that it is very unlikely that he was unaware of this.
Should freedom-loving Americans trust this man? You be the judge.
you noticed that our heath care systems continue to get worse? My
doctor informed me recently that government agents arrived at his
office unannounced to demand that he shell out thirty grand for
a new government mandated bank / insurance company setup that is
not optional and then had the audacity to charge him for
their visit. Health care is deteriorating rapidly and more government
intrusion is exactly not what the doctor ordered!
the adults really in charge or is Bush nothing but Hillary Clinton
Neo-Cons have until recently pretended (at least to their conservative
base) to stand for the rights of unborn Americans but now even the
pretence is gone. It remains possible that they will throw a bone
to decency by eliminating that "special procedure" (as
the government media hacks call it) that pro lifers refer to accurately
as partial birth abortion. Don’t hold your breath though – it was
promised for January of this year. Meantime the babies are still
getting their little heads broken by vicious beasts in doctor suits.
depravity? Sure, if it votes Republican. After all, it is not the
government’s job to monitor what goes on in our bedrooms. Unless
it is something they don’t like of course. Just don’t take a pistol
to your next S/M session.
beloved leader of the Neo-Cons, Señor Bush, has put together
a track record that makes Jimmy Carter look like a statesmen. He
has managed to alienate our European allies, destroy an already
shaky accord with Russia (second most nuclear-armed power in the
world by the way), increased government spending to levels that
have the Democrats gasping with delight, increased the size and
power of government to dictatorial levels and has presided over
the worst economic downturn since the late seventies.
millions of Americans unemployed he has steadfastly refused to guard
our borders against illegal migrant labor, all the while pretending
that we are involved in some stupendous war against shadowy terrorists.
The airline industry is reeling and many Americans (including this
writer) simply refuse to fly rather than be subjected to arrest
by the morons "guarding" our airports against some non-specific
threat that apparently includes Medal of Honor winners and Granny.
A threat that goes unnoticed on the southern border where sinister
Arabic figures are an increasingly large percentage of the "visitors"
he stubbornly refuses to crack down upon.
back at the OK Corral he has managed to get us into pending conflicts
on two separate continents, both of which may go nuclear (if you
are naïve enough to take his word about Iraq). And of course
he is managing to ignore Korea, the truly dangerous situation to
focus on bringing democracy to a region that doesn’t want it and
won’t tolerate democracy imposed upon it.
one area where democracy has been successfully imposed upon people
who didn’t want it, by force of arms of course, is the United States
of America, an erstwhile Constitutional Republic.
the adults are in charge all right.
gets even weirder: minus the few hundred thousand outright kooks
who rejoice in "takin’ it to the streets," most of the
left wing socialist types are quite as warlike as their supposed
enemies on the Neo-Conservative right. That this is confusing strikes
me as deliberate – both sides wage their ideological wars with slogans
rather than facts – us plebian types can choose the slogan we prefer
and thus pretend that we have some sort of association with other
folks who chose that slogan and at least get a little kick out having
a place in the pack. All others are shouted down as un-American
from the right and "racist" from the left. Since both
slogans mean the same thing this is the best of all worlds for the
enemies of freedom. And mark this very carefully – both sides
are enemies of freedom.
Adolf Hitler before him, Señor Bush is betraying his supporters
left, right and center, but it doesn’t seem to impact his popularity
polls one bit. Similarly to Hitler, he finds it expedient to keep
the populace in an uproar about various enemies who threaten all
that is good. To fight them, we must become more like them. Didn’t
we try that in the Cold War? We ended up becoming our enemies,
fulfilling Khrushchev’s prophecy that he would bury us. You have
only to compare individual freedom in America before the Cold War
to what little we have left today. Dare we risk trying this again?
is it that folks who proudly proclaim their patriotism cannot see
these things? Or is it that they simply will not see them.
It certainly feels better to believe that things are just fine in
good ole America. Yet things are most certainly not fine, this much
who wish us to be a member of the group rather than a hardheaded
bunch of individualists, who coincidently happen to be harder to
govern, rule over us both in the bureaucracies and the un-elected
branches of government. When we are a collective, issues like rule
of law are moot. The folks in charge, rule. Compassionately they
claim, but history shows no instance of collectivist governments
ruling with anything but an iron fist.
only the Führer knew…?" Are we not smarter than heavily indoctrinated
seventeen-year-old Nazi conscripts? I have my doubts.
can we give those people even more power than they already have,
and claim that we are patriots? Supporting this war is a way of
voting more power to the government. Remember, these guys are not
defending America. If they were, our borders would not be wide open.
It really is that simple.
we still had a sizable plurality of people who believed in the concept
of rule of law, rather than rule by men, we had an America where
kids took guns to school but never shot anyone; where cops where
your friends. An America that enjoyed commerce with all selling
our own products in a wonderful reversal of our current role as
the world’s butler and arms producer – "Do you want fries with
that Mr. Abdullah?" Finally, and perhaps most importantly,
an America with no entangling military alliances. That final statement,
as "un-American and racist" as it may sound, was another
of those controversial ideas put forth by a Mr. G. Washington, someone
about whom our modern generation could care less.
America is gone, dead and buried. It contracted a fatal disease
during the Second Secession War and eventually that malady proved
