Comparing 1933 Germany with 2016 United States…any similarities?


After the elections of March 5, 1933, the Nazis began a systematic takeover of the state governments throughout Germany, ending a centuries-old tradition of local political independence.

Armed SA and SS thugs barged into local government offices using the state of emergency decree as a pretext to throw out legitimate office holders and replace them with Nazi Reich commissioners.

When we see our political leaders either buckle under or disappear we have the same “beginning of the end” as when Hitler took over after he won the election in 1933.   I feel sorry for Maxine Walters, Eleanor Holmes Norton and Bonnie Watson Coleman as well as a great many more.    

Political enemies were arrested by the thousands and put in hastily constructed holding pens. Old army barracks and abandoned factories were used as prisons. Once inside, prisoners were subjected to military style drills and harsh discipline. They were often beaten and sometimes even tortured to death. This was the very beginning of the Nazi concentration camp system.  

With social media it will be easy to watch this happen and less likely to be swept under the rug.  This is where most of the clashes will start. Young people will not want to be treated as we were when my generation grew up.  

At that time, those early concentration camps were loosely organized under the control of the SA and the rival SS. Many were little more than barbed-wire stockades know as ‘wild’ concentration camps, set up by local Gauleiters and SA leaders.

Well, we have been hearing for years about the concentration camps ready for minorities.  If by February 2017 we see this happening we will know our time is limited.  With 31.6% of our military being made up of minorities this will be interesting.  The choice will be: Rump’s America or family?

For Adolf Hitler, the goal of a legally established dictatorship was now within reach. On March 15, 1933, a cabinet meeting was held during which Hitler and Göring discussed how to obstruct what was left of the democratic process to get an Enabling Act passed by the Reichstag. This law would hand over the constitutional functions of the Reichstag to Hitler, including the power to make laws, control the budget and approve treaties with foreign governments.

Who is going to stop this from happening here?  Racists are so thrilled about having their new leader it is as he says – he can walk down the middle of the street killing people and as long as it is a minority no one will raise an eyebrow.  Black lives don’t matter now…with Rump, we don’t have a chance.


The emergency decree signed by Hindenburg on February 28th, 1933 after the Reichstag fire, made it easy for them to interfere with non-Nazi elected representatives of the people by simply arresting them.

We already have the new plantations, prisons, set up to house any minority or sympathizer.  Free labor for those running the prisons and tough luck for those caught.  There are some White folks that understand what is happening but most won’t care until their ticket is up.  

On March 21st, 1933 in the Garrison Church at Potsdam, the burial place of Frederick the Great, an elaborate ceremony took place designed to ease public concern over Hitler and his gangster-like new regime.

Finishing his speech, Hitler walked over to Hindenburg and respectfully bowed before him while taking hold of the old man’s hand. The scene was recorded on film and by press photographers from around the world. This was precisely the impression Hitler and Goebbels wanted to give to the world, all the while plotting to toss aside Hindenburg and the elected Reichstag.

Does President Obama’s meeting with Rump in the White House remind you of that, just a bit, although Rump was not bowing to Obama. Rump was so proud of himself after making “That nigger” show Rump his freedom papers in the form of a birth certificate but all was forgotten since Rump won.  I don’t forget!

The first decree by Hitler offered full pardons to all Nazis currently in prison. The prison doors sprang open and out came an assortment of Nazi thugs and murderers.

Most of our real criminals are already out free in America.  Rump will find a way to free some cannon fodder crackers out to do the grunt work for White America. You can rest assured his kids won’t be fighting for “White America Again.”  He will get the uneducated, disenfranchised, broke Whites out of prisons, armed and ready to do us in.

The second decree signed by Hitler allowed for the arrest of anyone suspected of maliciously criticizing the government and the Nazi Party.

Rump stated he has a list of enemies and anyone with any cognitive development can see this happening.  Rump already went after the press and anyone else who he feels did not suck up enough.

A third decree signed only by Hitler and Papen allowed for the establishment of special courts to try political offenders. These courts were conducted in the military style of a court-martial without a jury and usually with no counsel for the defense.

Stop and frisk with a twist.  Cops and good White citizens will be obliged to off as many young blacks, brown, yellow, red and non-Christians as they can shoot.  As it was in the past, “Justice is just for us wealthy White folks.”

Before the vote, Hitler made a speech in which he pledged to use restraint.

“The government will make use of these powers only insofar as they are essential for carrying out vitally necessary measures…The number of cases in which an internal necessity exists for having recourse to such a law is in itself a limited one,” Hitler told the Reichstag.

At least Bill Clinton gave us 3 strikes!  Have we forgotten that, Bill?  I do know we would have had the status quo with Hillary but now, we can forget about it.

Hitler also promised an end to unemployment and pledged to promote peace with France, Great Britain and Soviet Russia. But in order to do all this, Hitler said, he first needed the Enabling Act. A two-thirds majority was needed, since the law would actually alter the constitution. Hitler needed 31 non-Nazi votes to pass it. He got those votes from the Catholic Center Party after making a false promise to restore some basic rights already taken away by decree.

Oh my, Rumps global business dealings will dictate who our enemies are and will be.  If he can’t buy the country’s leaders, he will just have a war and take what he wants.  Rump loved  the religious right and they fell for his rhetoric Bible verses and all.  Racism goes far deeper than any “Love thy Neighbor” message.  

But one man arose amid the overwhelming might. Otto Wells, leader of the Social Democrats stood up and spoke quietly to Hitler.

“We German Social Democrats pledge ourselves solemnly in this historic hour to the principles of humanity and justice, of freedom and socialism. No enabling act can give you power to destroy ideas which are eternal and indestructible.”

Shut up, Bernie, no one likes you because you are a Jew!  His kind will not be welcome in the new USA either.  Jews killed Jesus.  Socialism is for punks until old folks miss their social security checks!

Hitler was enraged and jumped up to respond.

“You are no longer needed! The star of Germany will rise and yours will sink! Your death knell has sounded!”

Rump has the same temperament as Hitler, look at his tweets.

Minorities have a lot of nerve wanting to be heard and treated fairly!

The vote was taken in 1933 Germany – 441 for, and only 84, the Social Democrats, against. The Nazis leapt to their feet clapping, stomping and shouting, then broke into the Nazi anthem, the Hörst Wessel song.

Democracy was ended. They had brought down the German Democratic Republic legally. From this day onward, the Reichstag would be just a sounding board, a cheering section for Hitler’s pronouncements.

Didn’t we see this already happening with David Duke and his kind in office?  Did you see several videos on youtube?  A quick video to see is .

Interestingly, the Nazi Party was now flooded with applications for membership. These latecomers were cynically labeled by old-time Nazis as ‘March Violets.’ In May, the Nazi Party froze membership. Many of those kept out applied to the SA and the SS which were still accepting. However, in early 1934, Heinrich Himmler would throw out 50,000 of those ‘March Violets’ from the SS.

In the good old USA no one will be denied a chance to be as evil as he/she can be.  They won’t be thrown out but encouraged to “Make America Hate Again.”  That is until resources start to disappear due to no farm workers and those minorities doing grunt work. It will become a status thing to have White help doing all of the undesirable jobs.   

The Nazi Gleichschaltung now began, a massive coordination of all aspects of life under the Swastika and the absolute leadership of Adolf Hitler.

Do you think the confederate flag will fly over Washington DC?  Why not, the Old America is back in power and it will be a constant reminder to stay in the back and/or out of sight.

Under Hitler, the State, not the individual, was supreme.

From the moment of birth one existed to serve the State and obey the dictates of the Führer. Those who disagreed were disposed of.

Many disagreed and left the country. A flood of the finest minds, including over two thousand writers, scientists, and people in the arts poured out of Germany and enriched other lands, mostly the United States. Among them – writer Thomas Mann, director Fritz Lang, actress Marlene Dietrich, architect Walter Gropius, musicians Otto Klemperer, Kurt Weill, Richard Tauber, psychologist Sigmund Freud, and Albert Einstein, who was visiting California when Hitler came to power and never returned to Germany.

I am glad that my son as an opportunity to get out of here before the race wars start.  I traced our ancestry back to the 1790’s. However, most Hispanics go back well past a few hundred years and they will be deported if Rump keeps his promise.  

Now, for the first time as dictator, Adolf Hitler turned his attention to the driving force which had propelled him into politics in the first place, his hatred of the Jews. It began with a simple boycott on April 1st, 1933, and would end years later in one of the greatest tragedy in all of human history.

Rump’s hatred has propelled him into this dynasty he is creating for himself and his family.  I wonder how long it will take before he gets rid of that Jewish son-in-law?  

History Doesn’t Repeat Itself BUT IT SURE DOES RHYME!
