Vicious slander and libel of conservatives by the media, Democrat partisans and progressive public figures happens so often, I have become numb to it. When people like any of the CNN or MSNBC anchors, public figures/entertainers like Bill Maher, Steven Colbert, Robert De Niro or Michael Moore, or Congressional idiots like Da Nang Dick Blumenthal, Chuck Schumer or Nancy Pelosi or any of the crumb-covered, basement dwelling progressive Internet trolls open up their cakeholes, I hardly listen any more.
But I did notice when the completely debased and yet supremely pretentious Christiane Amanpour invoked Kristallnacht as she tried to tendentiously connect the Trump years to Kristallnacht, that Nazi terror pogrom named after the shards of glass raining down on the streets from the shattered windows of Jewish-owned stores, buildings and synagogues.
One thing on which one can always count is that these prominent, self-righteous priests and priestesses of American progressivism (primarily the leftists in America) are always so lacking in self-awareness, they almost always tell you more about who they are and what they believe as they condemn others. It is almost as if they are trying to use words to camouflage the bargain they made with Lucifer for their black souls. It seems they think salvation is available if they talk loudly and long enough.
In a way, Amanpour was right, her aim was just off about 180 degrees.
When consideration is given to the way conservatives, capitalists and Christians (for our purposes here, let us call them 3C people) are treated by the progressive left, the cancellations, the de-platforming and banning on social media, the public shunning, the attacks designed to cause career loss, financial pain and even social ostracization, combined with the sanctioned violence of ANTIFA and BLM, the analogizing to Kristallnacht is eminently plausible.
Glass was shattered in the streets of Portland, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, and Kenosha. Why did this happen? It was due to drummed up charges of “systemic racism”, every bit as opportunistically utilized by Biden/Harris supporters against 3C people as was the assassination of the German diplomat Ernst vom Rath by Herschel Grynszpan, a 17-year-old German-born Polish Jew living in Paris, was used as an excuse to begin the Holocaust. In our current horror show, George Floyd was the contemporary vom Rath and police officer Derek Chauvin was Grynszpan.
And no, I am not saying that getting sent to the social media gulag is the same as being sent to Buchenwald or Auschwitz, what I am pointing out is the similarities of the process and the hypocrisy of people comparing their enemies to Nazi’s while using the Nazi’s playbook.
Jews came to be hunted and condemned to extinction simply because they were Jews – but before the Nazi’s could do that, they had to dehumanize the Jewish people. The beginning of that process was to force Jews to wear a “Jew badge”, a blue or yellow Star of David patch with the word “Jew” emblazoned on it. Jews were ordered to put signs in their businesses signifying that the owner was Jewish. These actions were the precursors to concentrating Jews into the ghettos.
Remarkably similar tactics are beginning to be applied to 3C people who are not part of the progressive agenda. 3C’s are being digitally doxxed (hunted), labeled (badged) and sent to digital ghettos. 3C’s often must hide their beliefs in public for fear of reprisal. They are being dehumanized through cancellation via libel and slander (think Nick Sandman). AOC is keeping a list of 3C’s and their collaborators to be “held accountable”.
Given these facts, just who do you suppose are the new Nazis?
