TeaGOP, Hitler Obsession & Christianity?

 

The Right used to soil themselves whenever Democrats pointed out similarities between GOP strategies and those of the Nazis. With the Dems back in the White House, it’s the TGOP who can’t stop equating Democrats, liberals and progressives with a godless, leftist Hitler.

 

All spin aside, Hitler’s fundamental attitudes and behaviors demonstrate he would have been largely indistinguishable from most of today’s TGOP.  Hear’s what I mean; Herr Hitler:

  •   shouted a lot;
  •   urged revolution against a traitorous government;
  •   ran with a violent, poorly-educated crowd;
  •   saw enemies of the country everywhere;
  •   hated liberals, communists, and socialists;
  •   crushed unions…
  •   hated feminists, too;
  •   blamed immigrants (especially Jewish and dark-skinned ones) for most of his country’s woes; 
  •   condemned homosexuals;
  •   was anti-abortion and anti-birth control; 
  •   despised multi-culturalism;
  •   considered civil rights an obstacle to social order;
  •   thought modern culture was Satan’s plot against society;
  •   was vehemently pro-war and pro-death penalty;
  •   opposed the super-rich while secretly relying on their support;
  •   promised a return to the former glory of his country, through violence if necessary;  
  •   regularly labeled himself and his country Christian, and invoked Christ and God in public.

 

What was that last bit, Adolf Hitler tight with the Lord? Wasn’t he the atheistic enemy of Jesus and religion?

 

See for yourself. The following quotes are lifted from various Hitler speeches, 1930-1943:

 

“But there is something else I believe, that there is a God…And this God again has blessed our efforts.”

 

“If positive Christianity means love of one’s neighbor, i.e. the tending of the sick, the clothing of the poor, the feeding of the hungry, the giving of drink to those who are thirsty, then it is we who are the more positive Christians.”

  

“We must educate the youth in particular in the spirit of those of Christ’s words that we must interpret anew: love one another; be considerate of your fellow man; remember that each one of you is not alone a creature of God, but that you are all brothers!”

 

“My feelings as a Christian point me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter… I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice… As a Christian I have also a duty to my own people.”

 

“We must turn…away from the anti-Christian, smug individualism of the past, from the egotism and stupid hypocrisy of personal arrogance.”

 

“We, therefore, go our way into the future with the deepest belief in God. Would all we have achieved been possible had God not helped us? I know that the fruits of human labor are hard-won and transitory if they are not blessed by the All-Powerful. Work such as ours, which has received the blessings of the Almighty, can never again be undone by mere mortals.”

   

“Secular schools can never be tolerated because such a school has no religious instruction, and a general moral instruction without a religious foundation is built on air; consequently, all character training and religion must be derived from faith.”

  

“We have been conducting a fearless campaign against that…which is threatening our entire nation, our culture, our art, and our public morals.”

 

“We have made an end of denials of God and the tearing down of religion.”

  

 “I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty… I am fighting for the work of the Lord.”

 

“Once the mercy of God shined on us, but we were not worthy of His mercy. Providence withdrew its protection and our people fell… In this deep misery we again learned to pray.”

  

“The youth will, with loathing and contempt, abandon those hypocrites who have Christ on their lips but the Devil in their hearts.”

 

“God does not make cowardly nations free.”

 

“I would like to thank the Almighty for choosing me, of all people, to be allowed to wage this battle…”

 

 

“And so long as we are loyal, honest, and ready to fight, so long as we believe in our great work and do not capitulate, we shall also in the future have the blessing of God.”

 

“Our prayer is: Lord God, let us never hesitate, let us never play the coward, let us never forget the duty which we have taken upon us.”

 

“Lord, grant to our people peace at home, and grant and preserve to them peace from foreign enemies!”

 

“Even the Devil can appear as an Angel of Light”

 

Does Hitler sound like a godless Lefty to you? He speaks native Christian better than many of the Tea-Bigots themselves, doesn’t he? (I don’t want to consider the full implication of that)
