The Reichstag fire (German: Reichstagsbrand, was an arson attack on the Reichstag building, home of the German parliament in Berlin, on Monday 27 February 1933, precisely four weeks after Adolf Hitler was sworn in as Chancellor of Germany. Hitler’s government stated that Marinus van der Lubbe, a Dutch council communist, was the culprit, and it attributed the fire to communist agitators. A German court decided later that year that Van der Lubbe had acted alone, as he had claimed. The day after the fire, the Reichstag Fire Decree was passed. The Nazi Party used the fire as a pretext to claim that communists were plotting against the German government, which made the fire pivotal in the establishment of Nazi Germany
Gina Carano got fired from her gig at Disney for reminding people that the Jews couldn’t be rounded up and murdered until the German government managed to get their neighbors to hate them, a reference to the demonizing of conservatives by Democrats, the left, the mainstream media, pop culture, and so on. It seems that comparing someone to Hitler or the Nazis is just about the worst thing you can do these days–unless you are on the left comparing Donald Trump, Republicans and conservatives to Hitler or calling them Nazis. I just searched “Trump compared to Hitler” and in addition to a few articles detailing how many times Donald Trump was compared to Hitler (at least 9 or so specific instances) there were also plenty of articles actually comparing Trump to Hitler. I bring that up because I am about to compare what happened on February 27, 1933 and afterwards in Germany and what happened on January 6, 2021 and the days following in the United States of America.
People often forget that Adolf Hitler was democratically elected. I don’t know if his election was as fraudulent as our 2020 presidential election, but Hitler was elected Chancellor of Germany. The power that office provided him, though, was not sufficient to accomplish his objectives. An emergency was needed.
The responsibility for the Reichstag fire remains a topic of debate and research. The Nazis accused the Comintern of the act. However, some historians believe, based on archive evidence, that the arson had been planned and ordered by the Nazis as a false flag operation.
Hitler urged President Paul von Hindenburg to issue an emergency decree to suspend civil liberties and pursue a “ruthless confrontation” with the Communist Party of Germany. After the decree was issued, the government instituted mass arrests of communists, including all of the Communist Party’s parliamentary delegates. With their bitter rival communists gone and their seats empty, the Nazi Party went from having a plurality to a majority, thus enabling Hitler to consolidate his power.
Right now the Democrats hold the White House, a razor-thin majority in the House and a tie-breaker majority in the Senate. But they are concerned that this is not going to be enough to effect the complete transformation of the United States that they have promised their radical socialist base.
Whoever planned the riot of January 6, 2021 and whoever executed it, it is clear that the Democrats fully intend to capitalize on the event. They are calling for a “war on domestic terror” by which they mean anyone who resists their radical reshaping of American society. They are calling for the establishment of a “Truth Commission” (Ministry of Propaganda) to ferret out “lies and disinformation” (opinions contrary to theirs and facts that are inconvenient or embarrassing) and to mobilize and direct America’s intelligence agencies toward its citizens (their own Secret Police). And under Nancy Pelosi’s control, with no explanation or description of any specific credible threat, they have festooned our nation’s capitol with razor wire, walls and fences and armed National Guard troops. [Walls and National Guard troops at our border with Mexico: immoral. Walls and National Guard troops surrounding Nancy Pelosi and their nascent authoritarian regime: just fine!]
If all of that is not enough to scare the hell out of you, consider that one of the first priorities of the Democrat Congress and President Joe Biden is going to be licensing, registering, banning and confiscating the firearms of America’s militia–the one that is “necessary to the security of a free state.”
Our God-given right to keep and bear arms for the defense of our liberty is needed now more than ever before in our nation’s history.
