The American Left and the Nazis–Kindred Spirits

One of the great ironies of the hysteria over the Charlottesville melee is the audacity of the Left proclaiming to hold the high moral ground. Because President Trump supposedly did not condemn the KKK, the White Supremacists, and the Nazis clearly enough, he was castigated as a sympathizer with all three groups, if not an actual member. By extension, all Republicans, especially those who voted for Trump, are worthy of the same condemnation. And all the while, Republicans in Congress, with few exceptions, said nothing.

So, the Left, along with their communist pals in Antifa, proclaim their purity when it comes to their hatred of Nazis. However, the American Left has much in common with the Nazis.

When we think about the German Nazis, undoubtedly the first thought that comes to mind is the slaughter of six million Jews. Once the Nazis declared Jews as non-persons, it was much easier to kill them in mass numbers.

For the last forty years, a holocaust of greater numbers has been taking place in this country. Approximately 60 million babies, declared to be non-persons in 1973, have been destroyed through abortion. And the American Left loves the slaughter. In fact, abortion is, as Nancy Pelosi has declared, something “sacred” and worth protecting at any cost. The German Nazis would be jealous if they were around today.

And speaking of abortion, the Left has been the greatest defender of Planned Parenthood, even though over 80% of its abortion clinics are located in minority neighborhoods. Although blacks are only 19% of the population, 34% of all abortions are performed on black women. In New York City, there are more abortions of black babies than births. White supremacists, like the Nazis and the KKK, could not do a better job of eliminating the “inferior” races.

One last word about Planned Parenthood. Each year the organization presents the Margaret Sanger Award to the individual who has done the most to promote the right of abortion in America. Sanger was a eugenicist who referred to blacks as “weeds” and worked diligently to eliminate as many as she could through birth control and abortion. Oh, and did I mention that she was very chummy with the German Nazis? She was one of their favorite guests. Perhaps Planned Parenthood should do the logical things and present the Margaret Sanger Award to a current Nazi.

And let’s not forget the infamous Nazi doctor Josef Mengele. At the Auschwitz concentration camp, Megele performed sadistic genetic experiments on children, often injecting them with diseases to see how they would react. He “justified” his actions by claiming that he was trying to find a cure for these diseases.

For the past twenty years or so, the American Left have been staunch defenders of embryonic stem cell research, despite the fact that an embryo must be destroyed in order to obtain the cells. In other words, a baby must die. And the “justification” for this slaughter? Why, many diseases may be cured. (So far, not one.) If Dr. Mengele were still around today, he would be a darling of the Left.

The Left condemns the modern-day Nazis as being anti-Semitic. And yet the Left clearly has a disdain for Israel. This hatred is manifested by its near-jerk reaction to harshly criticize Israel while giving the Muslim Brotherhood and its offshoot Hamas a free pass. Representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood were often welcome guests in the Obama White House, and Obama’s personal dislike for Netanyahu was obvious. All this despite these words in the Hamas Charter with regard to a time of peace in the future:

The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind the rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslims! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!

Of course, not all Leftists are anti-Semitic, but a German Nazi would, like the Left, look kindly on Hamas.

The Left is very fond of euthanasia, although it would prefer to use the euphemism “death with dignity.” Interestingly, the German Nazis began their euthanasia program two years before the Holocaust. In essence, the Nazi program was a dry run for mass murder. The Nazis were determined to restore racial “integrity” and to eliminate those who had a “life unworthy of life” and who were a financial or genetic burden on society. In 1939, the German government encouraged parents to place their children with mental or physical disabilities into special institutions that would care for them. However, most of the children were murdered by medical overdoses or starvation. Estimates put the number of murdered children at over 5,000. Later, the Nazis turned to adults with mental or physical abnormalities. With these, the Nazis perfected the use of the gas chamber for mass extermination.

Many, if not most, Leftists support euthanasia. Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sander are on record as favoring “death with dignity.” Today assisted suicide is permitted in California, Colorado, Washington, Vermont, Oregon, and the District of Columbia. Not surprisingly, all of them went for Hillary Clinton in 2016. The Left has followed the Nazi pattern which begins with children (abortion) and then moves on to the sick, disabled, and despondent. With more power, the Left will make sure that the “right to die” becomes the “duty to die.” Clearly, Hitler’s Nazis were the perfect mentors for the Left.

Another area where the Left mimics the Nazis is education. The German Nazis used education as indoctrination centers, extolling the Aryan race and condemning Jews and others as inferior creatures. Dissent was not tolerated. In the early thirties, the Nazis removed Jewish teachers and teachers who were not adhering to Nazi propaganda. There was no such thing as academic freedom, and every book and lesson plan was strictly adhered to.

Today in America, the Left dominates all levels of education. Teachers who think independently are usually skipped over when it comes to hiring or fired for not being politically correct. Students are indoctrinated in anti-Americanism, gay rights, abortion, socialism and other “accepted” beliefs. Dissent is rarely allowed, and those with a different point of view are prohibited from speaking on campus. Led by Antifa and other radical groups, students will often resort to violence in order to prevent so-called “hate” speech from being heard. Again, its Nazi Germany all over again.

So, despite the mainstream media’s attempt to paint the Left as paragons of virtue, the Left is virtually no different than the Nazis of old. Compared to them, the handful of lunatic white supremacists in this country are no great threat to America.

As conservative radio host Dennis Prager often says, “The Left destroys everything it touches.” Sad, but true. Sadder yet is the shameful reluctance of many Republicans in Congress to loudly condemn it.

  • I’ll try to post again but my question is why do so many Catholics, Catholic bishops and priests support national democrat politicians and the democrat party? You can’t be a Catholic and support a party whose core values are baby murder and sodomy. Shame on this people
