Photo of a Nazi Soldier is one WWII buffs will recognize. Similarities between Nazi Germany and what is taking place in the U.S. are of interest especially now because of all the media attention leading up to the upcoming U.S. election coming Nov. 8th.
Comparison of both candidates shows that each of them often confuses truth and falsehood. They both emphasize their personal power and strong leadership to reflect what they think. Now, looking back to Nazi Germany, when comparing Hitler to either Hillary or Trump is unfair. Hitler was evil personified. Trump, however, like Hitler does resent established elites. Both Hitler and Trump are firm about restoring the greatness of country.
Both U.S. and Nazi Germany control the media. Eighty percent in the U.S. is by a few entities. In Nazi Germany, information was state-controlled. Information contained only Nazi propaganda. Residents purchased state-controlled radios. Access to foreign radio information was punishable.
Both countries outlawed school prayer, Hitler in Germany, the U.S. Supreme Count banning it in l963.
The Reichstag Government building in Germany burned by German forces led to the passing of the Enabling Act and Decree on the Protection of People and State. This gave Hitler the pretext to launch a pre-emptive war which eliminated many German civil liberties. The World Trade Center attacks in 2011 considered to be “inside” jobs led to passing the Patriot Act to the establish Homeland Security Act which reduced citizen civil liberties.
Both developed an internal security system: Germany with Reichssicherheitshauptamt and Schutstaffel, the U.S. with CIA, FBI and Homeland Security.
Both promote globalism, Hillary especially touts it. U.S. globalism has increased by corporations. However, Hitler was definite in his plan to rule the world. Trump wants less and to protect U.S. borders.
The support of children was strong in Germany. Hitler, in fact, studied U.S. eugenics while in prison and went further to eliminate what he thought were inferior beings and inferior races such as Jews. Germany had lost so many men in the WWI and need to increase the number of children being born. There were many incentives for women to have many children to grow up to fight for Germany. There were medals and special programs for women having many children.
In late l935, Himmler established the two-part Lebensborn program. Lebensborn Secrets, a novel about one of those about the breeding of new leaders for the Third Reich is soon to be released by this author. Meanwhile in the U.S. we have Planned Parenthood, an organization receiving federal air.
The renaming and elimination of holidays and prayer days took place in Germany when Hitler renamed the Christmas school holiday Yuletide and eliminated the Easter School holiday. In the U.S. there is the renaming of Christmas school holidays to Winter Break and the Easter School holiday to Spring Break.
Both countries develop an outside military, Germany with Schutzstaffel and the U.S. with Blackwater and other free-lance forces.
