    •  Yes they are and we should not act like the Jews (9+ / 0-)

      of Germany and Europe.  Recognize it for what it is and act on that.

      •  Some of the Jews and Poles fought back too. (5+ / 0-)

        Had there been more and had they begun fighting back earlier, it might have changed things.

      •  The parallels are nauseating to contemplate.. (6+ / 0-)

        but you are correct. First they came for the Air Traffic Controllers, then the United Auto Workers, then the low-income moms of color, and then the firefighters, and then the teachers, and then....

        who is next?

        The only remedy, and its not a sure win, is to organize. Despite the risks, ignoring the disinformation and threats, and loss of jobs, friends, and probably the relaxed barbeque on Sunday afternoon, the only remedy is to organize.

        The Tea Bag Thugs are pushing the middle class into a society in need of an International Workers and Consumers Union, out of necessity. Wait for them to claim that the Socialists are organizing to take over the world... because they will, after they have impoverished and beaten down any hope for a dignified future. They will blame those who try to organize and fight them. They will attempt to dehumanize them so they can eliminate them, politically and economically, but failing that, one can plausibly imagine them desiring a physical end to their progressive opposition.

        If the American Media For Profit cannot see the connections between 1933 Europe and 2011 America, they are much worse at "perception" than the deaf, mute and blind. They are truly disabled, unlike the merely deaf, mute and blind, who have sharpened their functional senses. The modern media is now self-hamstrung, castrated and paraplegic, but they believe they are Olympic Athletes. We are in serious trouble.

          Republican Fascist Party.  The Tea Bag Thugs are the Brown Shirts of the party.  Consider the rise of the German National Socialist Party and you will see that the German industrialists and bankers were right there with them.

          •  The German Bankers and Robber Barons (0+ / 0-)

            financed, promoted, propogandized, supported, and created Hitler's fascism. They eliminated the only elected President of Germany by accusing him of treason during WW1 because he had organized munutions workers when they were being blown up in the thousands attempting to work 20-hour shifts in unsafe and deadly factories across Germany. That Union man, somehow, by a miracle, was tapped by the Royals to step in as Chancellor and President in 1919 as the Kaiser slunk off to the Netherlands, the last of the hereditary German Caesars.

            His name was Frederich Ebert, my great great grandfather. And today he is remembered as a good man trapped between two irrational and violent political movements dedicated to using German people for World Domination; German Fascism and German Communism. He lost his life in that pursuit of democracy in 1926, and the rest is history, grim, dark history.

            The Corporate connection of German political fascists to the coporate economic fascists, the Krupps, the Messerschmidts, the Bayern's, Rosthschilds, Mercedes, and the Pre-Murdoch egotists of the 1930s is not well documented because the military history is so much more.. visual than following the money trail to total destruction.

              Its is also made difficult because these corporate bureaucrats survived to destroy most of the incriminating records as the allies entered the German lands. Even IBM and Ford Motors had their fingers in the profit pie as Corporatocracy tried to rule the world in the 1930's. This is the real history of WW2, but you would never know it from watching the "History Channel." To them and other simple minds, its all about uniforms, tank camo design and military tactics. Ther is virtually no discussion of WHY the Germans en masse thought they were superior to the rest of the world. It was corporate propaganda over a period of 25 years. We are on the same track.

            •  Exactly. They saw Hitler and the other Nazis (0+ / 0-)

              as useful idiots they could use to generate profits from a rebuilt military-industrial complex.  Recall that prior to WW 1, German industry and finance profited greatly from the massive arms race in Europe at the time.  They wanted those good times to roll again. And yes, we are very much on the same track.
