We are witnessing the start of the potential demise of American freedom that has been defended by millions of American citizens, either during war or during the construction of the country. This is the fall of American freedom and democracy. Part I the desecration of the first amendment.
You may perceive the prior statement as outlandish but the future only turns into the present when the past is reviewed. By the time an individual reviews the past the wheels are set in motion and cannot be derailed. A prime example of that scenario occurred with Hitler and the Nazi’s rise to power. The Nazis gained electoral power during the 1920s, which culminated with Hitler’s complete control in 1933. Take note; if Steve Bannon gains control of the House of Representatives then we will have an almost identical situation to Hitler regime of the 1920s. We will delve into those possibilities in a different article, for now we will focus on freedom of speech. Let’s review some quotes.
The Desecration of the First Amendment by the current Administration. We will look at factual statements delivered by different people within the Administration that threaten our freedom of speech and democracy. Note: Since we have multiple sources corroborating, we can confirm that this is the focused path of the Administration.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders quote from October 20th 2017 paraphrased. Sanders stated that the Press should not question or debate General Kelly’s responses because he is a Four Star General. This implies that even if the General lies to the American people he cannot be questioned or held liable for his discourse. This type of rhetoric from the President’s spokesperson suggests that when the military controls the Press and America’s citizens there will be no questioning allowed. You either accept what you are being told or face the consequences. History tells us that this occurred with Putin, Stalin, Hitler, Castro, and many other dictators around the world.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions said on two different occasions that he does not care about freedom of speech. On Aug 4 2017 he told a room full of reporters that he may make it easier to jail them if they do not reveal their sources. During a Senate hearing he was asked by Amy Klobochar if he would commit to not putting reporters behind bars for doing their job. Sessions response, “Well, I don’t know that I can make a blanket commitment to that effect. I will say this: We have not taken any aggressive action against the media at this point.”
The statements are very concerning and each word he used is heavily weighted. He has warned the Press on two separate occasions that his goal is to arrest reporters if they do not print news stories that are supportive of the President. The prior statement is deduced because the President consistently utters and tweets the words fake news. The President has associated anything that is contrary to him as fake news, which allows Sessions to go after reporters based on that premise alone. This is reminiscent of Hitler’s decree to jail all journalists after the fire at Reichstag in 1933.
The Nazis in 1933 controlled only 3% of Germany’s 4700 newspapers. They stoked fear and anxiety into the German population by running ads that stated a Communist uprising was imminent and going to destroy Germany. None of that was true but it allowed the Nazis to gather support. The Nazis annexed the other political parties as well as their printing presses and journalists.
In the present day, those that want to take complete control of America own 20+% of the media; Breitbart, Drudge, Fox, Info Wars, and smaller Alt Right media houses. The prior stated media houses lie consistently and create conspiracy theories. These stories bring down the value of freedom of speech and place distrust into the minds of some citizens that are too weak to decide what is real and false. No one arrests them but Sessions wants to jail reporters who are monitored by the FCC and are not reporting lies.
Trump propaganda and fake news. If you combine Trump’s statements with those of Sessions, Kelly, and Huckabee then we have a serious problem. Everything that is contrary to Trump’s views is labeled as fake news even if it is actually the truth. The ‘fake news’ lingo is not something new. Trump and Bannon have taken the fake news angle right out of Hitler’s Mein Kampf. Here are some quotes from Mein Kampf that have been implemented by Trump and Bannon in their quest for the Fourth Reich Republic of America. One important item to note is that Trump rarely references the United States of America. He only references America as a separate entity from the United States. A tactic utilized to divide citizens, as Hitler did with Germany.
“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”
“When diplomacy ends, War begins.”
“The receptivity of the masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan.”
“Humanitarianism is the expression of stupidity and cowardice.”
“Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way round, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise.”
“It is the press, above all, which wages a positively fanatical and slanderous struggle, tearing down everything which can be regarded as a support of national independence, cultural elevation, and the economic independence of the nation.”
Six months, one year, two years, or three years from now when America turns into the Fourth Reich will you look back and say, “Oh yes it was inevitable. I do not believe I did not see the writing on the wall.” The world said the same of the Nazi regime at the end of WWII, after existing for 20 years.
***Please vote carefully before it is too late. Spread the word about what can happen to America. Do not let our freedom be taken by Trump and Bannon. Do not let the minority of Americans who want a Republic take control. Do not let a misanthropic, asocial, antihuman narcissist destroy our freedoms as Hitler did across all of Europe. It is imperative that you vote against German Nazi sympathizers, Bannon and Trump, during the 2018 elections.
