March 23 – A Day of Infamy – Obama, Hitler & Patrick Henry

Lady Libertas posted yesterday on the fact that the day that the Tyranny of Healthcare Reform Bill was signed into law by the Tyrant Want to Be Obama was coincidentally (NOT) also the anniversary of Patrick Henry’s “Give me Liberty” speech.  A Great Patriot, @jenevalynne, has also pointed out that March 23 was the anniversary for something else…

March 23 was the Anniversary of the Enabling Act by Hitler in Germany : In 1933, the Reichstag passed the Enabling Act which made Adolf Hitler the Dictator of Germany. Lady Libertas was moved to wonder what Cosmic Coincidence could have caused this bizarre and yet somehow appropos crossroads.

Allow me to share a bit about the Enabling Act and YOU tell ME if it hit you in the same disturbing manner that it hit me …

Remembering that the Reichstag was one of the two houses of the German legislature and remembering that the Enabling Act was Step Two – Step One was the Reichstag Fire Act.

It was officially called the ‘Law for Removing the Distress of the People and the Reich.’ If passed, it would effectively mean the end of democracy in Germany and establish the legal dictatorship of Adolf Hitler.

The ‘distress’ had been secretly caused by the Nazis themselves in order to create a crisis atmosphere that would make the law seem necessary to restore order. On February 27, 1933, they had burned the Reichstag building, seat of the German government, causing panic and outrage. The Nazis successfully blamed the fire on the Communists and claimed it marked the beginning of a widespread uprising.

On the day of the vote, Nazi storm troopers gathered in a show of force around the opera house chanting, “Full powers – or else! We want the bill – or fire and murder!!” They also stood inside in the hallways, and even lined the aisles where the vote would take place, glaring menacingly at anyone who might oppose Hitler’s will.

Just before the vote, Hitler made a speech to the Reichstag in which he pledged to use restraint.

“The government will make use of these powers only insofar as they are essential for carrying out vitally necessary measures…The number of cases in which an internal necessity exists for having recourse to such a law is in itself a limited one.” Hitler told the Reichstag.

He also promised an end to unemployment and pledged to promote peace with France, Great Britain and the Soviet Union. But in order to do all this, Hitler said, he first needed the Enabling Act.

A two thirds majority was needed, since the law would actually alter the German constitution. Hitler needed 31 non-Nazi votes to pass it. He got those votes from the Center Party after making a false promise to restore some basic rights already taken away by decree.

However, one man arose amid the overwhelming might. Otto Wells, leader of the Social Democrats stood up and spoke quietly to Hitler.

“We German Social Democrats pledge ourselves solemnly in this historic hour to the principles of humanity and justice, of freedom and socialism. No enabling act can give you power to destroy ideas which are eternal and indestructible.”

This enraged Hitler and he jumped up to respond.

“You are no longer needed! – The star of Germany will rise and yours will sink! Your death knell has sounded!”

The vote was taken – 441 for, only 84, the Social Democrats, against. The Nazis leapt to their feet clapping, stamping and shouting, then broke into the Nazi anthem, the Hörst Wessel song.

They achieved what Hitler had wanted for years – to tear down the German Democratic Republic legally and end democracy, thus paving the way for a complete Nazi takeover of Germany.

From this day on, the Reichstag would be just a sounding board, a cheering section for Hitler’s pronouncements.

Tyranny has raised its ugly head in our country.  We can see from history that Tyranny sneaks in on the guise of doing “what is best for the people.”

What is good for us in this Healthcare Reform Act?  What is good for us that Obama has done so far?  What is good about continued Unemployment, increased Tax Burdens and a Republic divided?

Educate your family and friends and neighbors and co-workers.

Do not allow them to BAIT US!

Alinsky tactics are in full force and we can see from above – History has provided us with an important lesson in how a Tyrant comes to Power.

    Okay enough is enough. One’s comparison of the President to Hitler is a bit much. Healthcare is a matter of basic humanrights. It all boiles down to the haves wanting the have nots to continue in that vein. I believe it is a matter of racisim, oh what else is new in the lovely United States of America.

      You are precisely what is wrong in America right now. I did not call him Hitler – I compared the dates and asked you as a reader to look at the Enabling Act and how governments acquire power. If you would like to persist being a sheep then you deserve to be treated like a sheep. It does not boil down to racism at all – it boils down to the expansion of government that will infiltrate every aspect of your life. So you are OK with the IRS enforcing healthcare coverage? REALLY? Pray tell where that falls as a basic human right? Read the Constitution – Look in the Mirror – Repeat: I am an American. I can achieve anything and Liberty is precious. Pass it on.

      I’m amazed that someone thinks they have a right to steal from me with abandon!

      Health care, like manicures, tire rotations, and lawn care is a SERVICE. If you desire a service, then you should exercise your right to trade your expertise in the marketplace, and purchase whatever services (and products) you desire.

      Regardless of whatever sweet velvet lie that agents of tyranny couch it in, theft is unacceptable.

      A quick look at the national(ist) government’s balance sheet will tell the sad truth. We simply cannot afford to steal another dime from our children.

      First, we need to eliminate the entitlement state, “Kill Social Security First!” (in the words of the horny hick). Followed by Medicare, Medicare Part D, Medicaid, Corporate Subsidies, Welfare, Tax Credits, etc, ad nauseum.

      The economic order of the day should be “nobody gets ANYTHING!”

      We may just be able to clean up this mess in 20 years or so of high taxes and no services.

      The alternative is an unthinkable…dirty, bloody mess for us all.

    I think the blueprint for our regime was done in Germany in the 1930’s. I think that having a black(read biracial) President would ally fears AND would actually promote the Socialist agenda further….by NOT making the mistakes of the past. The arrogance that is now in Washington is that of a bygone era.The ways that the Obama and his little friends are from a bygone era.I don’t see how they are going to further their bygone era agenda.I see history repeating itself in a place where it was least expected and rightly so……we fell asleep….and we were taken advantage of…….we were not vigilant…we did not feel that we should after over 200 years….but evil does not sleep and evil does take advantage when we sleep………we felt safe,but alas we are not!………..what we a had taken for granted is not something we should………..We felt freedom is ours forever,but it is not! Our vigilance was not what it should have been! Freedom is to to be guarded ,yet we did not…..We felt that no one would take freedom away from us because it is so precious…but they did! Freedom is an enemy to those who know it naught. Freedom is an idea that cannot be exactly explained…freedom is an idea that is unless your are American… you can’t understand. We
    have fought wars that insured our freedom from Totalitarian Socialist regimes….now we have them in our very backyard! We as Americans WILL not stand for any Government that attempts to control us in us in anyway that will tell us different from our AMERICAN VALUES! We wanted to be different over 200 years ago and we still want to be now!

    I love your blog, glad I found it. The “cosmic coincidence” is indeed fascinating, and nauseating. The evidence of analogy to the rise of Hitler’s socialist/fascist forces is unfortunately no joke. Extreme economic distress is very fertile ground for would-be fascists to seize power, and the Clinton-led deregulation of Wall Street and simultaneous socialist transfer of mortgage money to un-creditworthy borrowers (backed by the taxpayer through Fanny and Freddie) hatched the global financial turmoil that has so weakened all that we hold dear (and Bush deserves a share of the blame here, including for the budget-busting Medicare prescription drug giveaway). There are actual quotes by the ballerina and others about the financial crisis being the golden opportunity for them to seize control of healthcare, and we know they are far from finished with the destruction of Novus Ordo Seclorum.
