The Ominous Parallels between Nazi Germany and America Today
"In Germany the Nazis first came for the communist, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Finally they came for me, but there was no one left to speak up to.”
-Martin Niemoeller, a Lutheran Pastor who was sent to the Dachau Concentration Camp in 1938.
There are some very ominous parallels between the emergence of Nazi Germany in the 1930s and the emergence of socialism and globalism in America today.
Nazism, fascism, and communism had a number of common denominators: an all powerful totalitarian dictatorial government which controlled all aspects of their subjects’ lives; massive numbers of rules regulations, and laws enforced by an all powerful bureaucracy; and a preoccupation with death. All three are secular humanist (a belief of worship and elevation of man versus God) to the core. All three is based on man’s rejection of God and His Authority and His Law.
Socialism (which America is presently plunging into) is simply communism or Nazism minus (at least for the present) the total dictatorship or gulag. As the head of the Labor Socialist Party (who was also a communist) in England, John Strachey, once said in the 1930s: “We cannot go directly from capitalism to communism. Socialism is a necessary stepping stone or transition. Hence, all communist should work towards Socialism.” Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, Gorbachev, Castro, Daniel Ortega, etc… are (or were) all first and foremost Socialist. (So are Bill and Hillary Clinton)
Most people condemn Nazism because of its gross manifestations of the Holocaust, the extermination of millions of Jews and others; the death and destruction of World War II, instead of because of its essence. Nazism was much more than killing Jews and starting wars. It was the rejection of God, His Authority, and His Law.
To understand Nazism and where we are heading today in America, we must understand western thought in the twentieth century. The acceptance of what passed as for scientific knowledge led to weakened spiritual faith and the blatant rejection of Christianity, which is the stabilizing force in the world. Man has elevated himself to the position of a god (the essence of secular humanism), determining that he can better understand the forces of nature than the God who established them.
The 1920s and early 1930s in German’s Weimar Republic saw rampant inflation and debt accumulation, monetary, economic, social, political, moral and spiritual decline on a scale unprecedented in German history. America since 1980 has experienced quite the same thing.
There are a number of frightening parallels which should be contemplated:
* In the 1930s the German people began to have a preoccupation with death. Via abortion they killed forty percent of all babies conceived. Then they moved on to euthanasia (killing of the elderly), then to the killing of the crippled, deformed and handicapped, and then to the killing of Jews who were deemed as a sub human race by the Nazi regime. At one point in the 1930s, the Nazi emptied hospitals, clinics, and sanitariums, and killed up to 275,000 old, sick, crippled, retarded, or otherwise handicapped persons. This was well before the Nazi death camps opened.
As in America today the lines of Moral absolutes are being erased as the disposal of the unwanted are being rationalized as making room for the capable, competent, or productive. As Germany evolved into a culture of death, most Germans barely took note of it, or saw anything wrong with it. Extermination of Jews, Christians, and any other undesirable was a natural progression of this culture of death.
In America we kill 1.6 million babies a year; over 40 million in the past twenty years. We are rapidly moving towards a culture of death as in Germany in the 1930s. Each day we see and hear of gratuitous violence and murder on television. The movie and video game industry has pulled all the stops when it comes to blood and gore. Drive by or freeway shootings and violent murder have become a way of life in America. We are gradually becoming more and more anesthetized to violent death each day.
* The Nazis passed thousands of laws, rules, and regulations to regulate and control every aspect of the German people’s lives – so many, that virtually anyone could be branded (or labeled) as a criminal and have their property seized, be jailed, or executed at the whim of the Nazis. Highly complex financial, currency, cash reporting, and privacy laws were passed which almost no one understood. Christians who sent money out of the country to missionaries had their assets seized and were often jailed (or worst) under Nazi money –laundering laws. Raids on homes (often in the middle of the night) by the Gestapo became commonplace, along with widespread property seizures.
The same thing has happened in America in the 1990s as the least 2,500 new laws were passed by Congress. The bureaucracy, consisting of dozens of alphabet agencies (EPA, FDA, OSHA, BATF, FBI, IRS ,DEA, etc…) then write over 86,000 pages of regulations carry criminal as well as civil penalties and have led in recent years to the seizures and forfeiture of the property of roughly 250,000 Americans per year, who have inadvertently violated one of these regulations. Raids on homes by the BATF, FBI, and others federal agents (often at dawn) have become commonplace along with widespread property seizures.
Hence in the 1990s every American has become a potential criminal (just as in Nazi Germany) and is probably in criminal violation of a number of regulations at any time- and doesn’t even know it! And just as in Nazi Germany, anyone who is politically incorrect can be fingered, arrested, and jailed – or stripped of their assets. As in Germany and it is all done legally!
* The Germans in the 1930s were preoccupied with environmentalism and animal rights, with the Nazis passing all sorts of laws, rules, and regulations to protect the environment (while restricting the rights of their people) and to protect animals (wild and domestic).
America has a very similar preoccupation with environmentalism and animal rights today, with the government passing all sorts of laws, rules, and regulations to protect the environment and animal life, while restricting the rights of the people (from the wetlands, clean air, clean water laws to the Endangered Species Act and the protection of snail darters, Northern and Mexican potted owls, golden checked warblers, kangaroo rats, a myriad of insects, etc…)
There is an ominous parallel between the animal rights legislation in the Third Reich and the Endangered Species Act in America today. The Book Understanding Nazi Animal Protection and the Holocaust, by Arnold Arluke and Boria Sax, explains the Nazi perverted and occultic attitudes towards animals:
In close evaluation of prominent Nazi military and political figures, it is suggested that there was a strong affection for animals, but and equally strong enmity towards human beings…Perhaps in their twisted point of view, their dedication to the welfare of animals excused their inhumane treatment of Jews.
The most interesting facet of Nazism is the abolition of moral distinctions between animals and people. (A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy.) They believed it was possible to increase the moral standing of animals and decrease the moral standing of people, thus integrating human characteristics to animals.
Immediately after the Nazis came to power, laws were passed that forbade the experimentation and dissection of animals for research. In their favor of animal protection, they even addressed the shoeing of horses and the suffering of lobsters and crabs being boiled alive.
German zoologist Ernst Haechel attacked religion, especially Christianity, for its reverence of human beings. He believed that man and animals shared the same moral status. Animal protection was to be used to reform human society.
* The Nazi Third Reich was not only a political movement or regime; it was also a supernatural, occultic movement and was in strong opposition to Bible based Christianity and Orthodox Judaism. The religious foundation of the Nazi Third Reich was from the same Eastern religions that are the foundation for the present day New Age Movement, which now permeates the Liberal Eastern Establishment and energizes or provides the occultic dynamic behind the New World Order.
It is interesting that the Nazis had a low respect for human life, but revered animals, nature, etc. and how today’s abortion movement, environmentalist, animal rights activists, etc.. have low respect for human life (they are almost fanatical about population limits, control, reduction, abortion, euthanasia, etc..) but are concurrently fanatical about preserving trees, plants, animals, fish, birds, insects, planet earth (called Mother Gaia), etc… The extreme of regard for people but high regard for animals and nature at first seems inconsistent, but not if one considers the occultic nature of both the Nazis and our present day hard core environmental and animal rights activists.
These apparent inconsistencies are very consistent within the context of the occult and Eastern Religions. Remember, in India, the breeding ground of the Eastern Religions, cows, and rats are worshipped as gods and cannot be killed or eaten, while insects cannot be killed because they could be some reincarnated friend or loved one. The Eastern religions made more of an inroad into Nazi Germany in the 1903s and likewise into America today. This helps to explain the importance of the parallels described above.
The globalist and their fellow environmentalists, the secular humanists, the abortionists, the radical feminists, the homosexual movement and the communists have several common denominators. They hate traditional American values, they hate the U.S. Constitution, they hate the traditional family, and they hate fundamental evangelical, Bible believing Christians-whom they consider to be a great threat to their socialist/globalist, homosexual, or environmental agendas for the planet. Some globalists refer to fundamental Christians and Orthodox Jews as a “virulent virus” that has to be purged.
So, just as there was a supernatural, occultic satanic dynamic behind the Nazis, there is also the same dynamic behind the New World Order and present day American social, cultural, and political freefall.
* Hitler completely ignored the German Constitution, just as our politicians and courts are doing today in America. Whenever Hitler wanted to do something, he would just do it. He would often write a note, as he did when he wrote a note to the Nazi doctors instructing them to begin widespread euthanasia, and they did. How does this differ from the Executive orders which Bill Clinton issued and President George W Bush continues to issue to this day.
Presidential Decision Directives (PDDs) are issued by the president sketching broad changes in future policies. PDDs-25 (formerly PDD-13) is an example of Clinton’s broad policy changes without congressional approval. PDDs-25 created the framework for moving the U.S. military under the United Nations command, and is the basis for U.S. Military participation in U.S. peacekeeping operations.

EO 13011- Creates a national information system, a massive new bureaucracy with authority to manage “Federal Information Technology” (signed by President Clinton on July 16, 1998) It links the data gathered by the health, Education, and Labor Departments to the data assessable to the FBI,CIA,EPA, and other federal agencies.
National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive # 51 signed on May 9, 2007. When the president determines a catastrophic emergency has occurred, the president can take over all government functions and direct all private sector activities to ensure we will emerge from the emergency with an "enduring constitutional government."
The language written in the directive is disturbing because it doesn’t say that the President will work with the other branches of government equally to ensure a constitutional government is protected. It says clearly that there will be a cooperative effort among the three branches that will be coordinated by the President.
If the President is coordinating these efforts it effectively puts him in charge of every branch. The language in the directive is entirely Orwellian in nature making it seem that it is a cooperative effort between all three branches but than it says that the President is in charge of the cooperative effort. In the event of a financial crisis that seems to be pending in the near future. “Voila”… We have an instant dictatorship!
* The German people, before and during the Nazi’s rise to power, began to reject their Christian heritage, their history, their national heroes, and their traditions. The Nazi accelerated this obliteration of their history and heritage as they came to power. And this is precisely what the liberals, socialists, and the globalist crowd in America have been doing in recent years. Our heritage, history, heroes and traditions are being denigrated and obliterated. To quote the wisdom of our Founding Fathers today, or to cite the U.S. Constitution in a court of Law, in a public forum, or in the media, is to laughed and scorned, or looked down upon in disdain.
Remember in George Orwell’s 1984, Big Brother erased the old history and heritage and fabricated a brand-new socialist history. The communist did the same thing in Russia and China. The same was done in Nazi Germany and the same is being done in America today through revisionist history and multiculturalism.
* The Nazis passed Draconian gun control laws to disarm the German people so that they could control them and set up their dictatorship. (The communist in Russia, China, and Cuba also disarmed their people.) Hitler bragged that: “1935 will go down in history! For the first time a civilized nation has full gun registration! Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead in the future.” And the Nazi dictatorship was ushered in!
