“Hilmar points to events surrounding the election of Barack Hussein Obama as reminiscent of the way the Nazi regime came to power.”

Tom Horn, CEO of Anomalos Publishing, recently sent out the mailing “Former Hitler Youth to Appear on The Savage Nation with Michael Savage to Discuss Similarities Between President-Elect Obama and the Rise of Totalitarianism Under Hitler.” It reads:

Nationally-syndicated talk show host Michael Savage is set to interview former German member of the Hitler Youth, Hilmar von Campe this Tuesday, November 18

MEDIA ADVISORY, November 17 /Christian Newswire/ — The program will focus on similarities, which von Campe sees between the rise of totalitarianism under Hitler and the current social and political trends inside the United States.

“Every day brings this nation closer to a Nazi-style totalitarian abyss,” writes von Campe, now a U.S. citizen, and author of “Defeating the Totalitarian Lie: A Former Hitler Youth Warns America.”

“Today in America we are witnessing a repeat performance of the tragedy of 1933 when an entire nation let itself be led like a lamb to the Socialist slaughterhouse. This time, the end of freedom is inevitable unless America rises to her mission and destiny.”

Hilmar points to events surrounding the election of Barack Hussein Obama as reminiscent of the way the Nazi regime came to power.

In a specific example, von Campe takes strong issue with Obama’s position that America after World War II became similar to Nazi Germany because the Supreme Court has not established wealth distribution as a constitutional guideline. Just the opposite is true according to von Campe. “The word ‘Nazism’ was invented by the Soviets to get the word ‘Socialist’ out of sight,” he wrote in a WND commentary this week. “Obama knows nothing about Germany. The national Socialists, called Nazis, come from the same Marxist/Socialist/Communist tree as he himself. His approach to the subject is the same as the one the Communists used when they took over the religious Theology of Liberation in Latin America and transformed it into a subversive political movement.”

The Savage Nation is listed in the top 3 syndicated talk shows alongside Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, reaching 8 million listeners on 400 stations throughout the United States daily.

“Hilmar points to events surrounding the election of Barack Hussein Obama as reminiscent of the way the Nazi regime came to power.” Oh, really? Tell me, are Jews or other minorities being attacked and beaten in the streets by Obama’s jackbooted thugs? Are their business and homes being vandalized or attacked? Are workers who support labor unions being terrorized? Does Obama have an army of hundreds of thousands of stormtroopers in the streets beating, attacking, and threatening all who disagree with him?

To even compare the two is to paper over and dismiss what happened to the Jews of Germany. I’m a pretty mediocre Jew and I’m not normally sensitive to anti-Semitism, but this is too much.

I would also add that I’m damn glad the U.S. has the Second Amendment, and I regret that the Jews of Germany didn’t have in their homes what I have in mine–a loaded .38.

Hitler’s S.A. and particularly the S.S. almost exclusively attacked unarmed civilians, and were perhaps the two greatest groups of cowards in all of human history. They were good at gunning down unarmed people–as they did to half my family in Bialystok, Poland in the summer of 1941–but many wouldn’t have had the courage to fight armed Jews.

The biggest slaughter occurred in Poland and in German-occupied USSR. The SS “men” carrying it out greatly preferred fighting an “enemy” who couldn’t shoot back, as opposed to fighting the Soviet Red Army, which inflicted the overwhelming majority of the Wehrmacht’s causalities and was largely responsible for Germany’s defeat in World War II. (In the photo above, Soviet troops who helped capture Berlin are holding 200 captive German military banners and standards.) (Yes, I know about the Waffen SS.)

To draw a line connecting Hitler and Obama is beyond ludicrous, and nationally-syndicated talk show host Michael Savage and Christian Newswire should be embarassed for colluding in it.

As a minor aside, Hitler was no socialist, and the Nazis backed up the traditional power of the German industrialists against the working class, who supported the German Communists and Social Democrats. Hitler’s main political enemy in Germany was the German Communist Party (KPD), and they were the first ones he destroyed upon seizing power.

It’s a common tactic of the right to pretend that the Nazis were on the left, as a way of discrediting the left. The Nazis were on the extreme right, analogous to the Ku Klux Klan in the U.S.
