America Is Embracing The Secret Police Culture Of The Nazis

Michael Snyder
Activist Post

Why do so many Americans want us to become more like Nazi Germany?  When I was growing up, I was taught that Nazi Germany was the antithesis of everything that America stood for.  I truly believed that we were "the land of the free" and that we were a bright, shining example for the rest of the world.  Unfortunately, over the past couple of decades America has been eagerly embracing the secret police culture of the Nazis.  In a desperate attempt to feel "safe", we have decided to become much more like our arch-enemies of the past.  In fact, in many ways we have already surpassed them.

Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union never had facial recognition cameras, "enhanced pat-downs", automated license plate scanners, voice recognition software, mobile backscatter vans or drones in the skies.  In America today, every single form of electronic communication is monitored by shadowy government intelligence agencies.  All over the globe, the emerging Big Brother electronic surveillance grid becomes more pervasive with each passing day.  Never in the history of the world have citizens been monitored so closely by their own governments.  But is all of this surveillance actually keeping us safer?

Of course not.  Just look at what happened in Boston.  But every time another tragedy strikes, our politicians tell us that the answer is to tighten security even more.  If this continues, eventually security will become so tight that it will choke all of the life out of this country.

Much has been written about the abuses on the federal level by the TSA and the Department of Homeland Security, but this is not just a phenomenon that is happening on the federal level.

Sadly, the truth is that Americans are embracing the secret police culture of the Nazis in local communities from coast to coast.


For example, just check out what is happening down in Palm Beach County, Florida.  The Sheriff is setting up a 24-hour hotline, and he is encouraging people to call that hotline to report on their neighbors.  In particular, he wants people to report on anyone that "hates the government"...
"We want people to call us if the guy down the street says he hates the government, hates the mayor and he’s gonna shoot him," Bradshaw said. “What does it hurt to have somebody knock on a door and ask, ‘Hey, is everything OK?’"
This sounds very similar to the "See Something, Say Something" program set up by the federal government a few years ago.  We are being trained to spy on one another, and nobody seems too concerned that this is exactly the same type of thing that used to happen in East Germany during the Cold War.

Aren't we better than that?

We have become so consumed with fear that we now even consider little girls to be terror threats.
Down in Florida, a 16-year-old girl that always got high grades was recently expelled from school, hauled away in handcuffs and charged with two felonies because her science experiment produced a small explosion...
The teen is accused of mixing household chemicals in a tiny 8-ounce water bottle, causing the top to pop off, followed by billowing smoke in an small explosion. 
Wilmot's friends and classmates said it was "a science project gone bad, that she never meant to hurt anyone." 
Even the teen's principal said, "She made a bad choice. Honestly, I don't think she meant to ever hurt anyone. She wanted to see what would happen [when the chemicals mixed] and was shocked by what it did.  Her mother is shocked too."
How bizarre is that?

Everyone involved in treating that precious little girl like that should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.

And in the name of "security", we are turning public schools all over the nation into prison camps.

When I was growing up, I never heard of schools holding "terror drills".  But now they are a regular part of school life.  Sometimes teachers are not even told that a drill is happening and they think that it is real.  For example, check out what happened the other day during an unplanned drill at a school in Oregon...
Teachers were shocked and caught off guard when an Oregon school held a school shooting drill. 
The Oregonian reports Pine Eagle Charter School in Halfway held the drill last Friday as children were home for an in-service day. Two masked “gunmen” burst into a meeting room holding 15 teachers firing blanks. Teachers only realized it wasn’t a real shooting when none of them were bleeding.
Can you imagine that?

Can you imagine having armed men storm in and thinking that it is real?

If I was one of those teachers that had blanks fired at them, I would immediately resign.

What kind of nation are we becoming?

We are becoming a global embarrassment.

And how are we supposed to protect our children from all of this?

Even if you don't put your kids in the public schools, the police state may still come and grab them from you.  The following is from a recent article by Simon Black...
In the Land of the Free recently, a California couple had their child kidnapped by the state. At gunpoint. 
It all started in mid-April when Anna and Alex Nikolayev took their 5-month old son Sammy to the hospital in Sacramento to be treated for flu symptoms. 
The parents didn’t particularly care for the treatment that their son was receiving. Doctors were pumping him full of antibiotics and soon began talking about performing surgery. 
Anna and Alex argued with the doctors and said that they were going to get a second opinion; they took the baby and went to another hospital where another physician deemed it perfectly safe for the child to return home with his parents without the need for surgery. 
The next day, with the family resting comfortably at home, the police showed up with Child Protective Services. 
Alex, the father, went outside to talk to them where he was thrown to the ground by police. Officers then relieved him of his house keys and proceeded to let themselves into the house with hands on their pistols. 
Then, still with their hands on their pistols, they told the mother “I’m going to grab your baby, and don’t resist and don’t fight me…”
Is this how we want to live?

Do we want to live in constant fear with the government constantly watching every single thing that we do?

Isn't that the exact opposite of what our founding fathers intended?

Even as you read this, the government is watching you.  The truth is that governments around the world have Internet surveillance capabilities that are far beyond what most people would ever imagine.  In an article entitled "The Dark Side of the Digital Revolution", Google's Eric Schmidt explained that all of the technology for "an incredibly intimidating police state" is "commercially available right now"...
Despite the expense, everything a regime would need to build an incredibly intimidating digital police state—including software that facilitates data mining and real-time monitoring of citizens—is commercially available right now. What's more, once one regime builds its surveillance state, it will share what it has learned with others. We know that autocratic governments share information, governance strategies and military hardware, and it's only logical that the configuration that one state designs (if it works) will proliferate among its allies and assorted others. Companies that sell data-mining software, surveillance cameras and other products will flaunt their work with one government to attract new business.
And in fact governments around the world, including the U.S. government, have been caught using such spy software to spy on the Internet behavior of private citizens...
Mozilla has sent a cease-and-desist letter to a company that sells spyware allegedly disguised as the Firefox browser to governments. The action follows a report by Citizen Lab, which identifies 36 countries (including the US) hosting command and control servers for FinFisher, a type of surveillance software. Also known as FinSpy, the software is sold by UK-based Gamma International to governments, which use it in criminal investigations and allegedly for spying on dissidents
Mozilla revealed yesterday in its blog that it has sent the cease and desist letter to Gamma "demanding that these illegal practices stop immediately." Gamma's software is "designed to trick people into thinking it's Mozilla Firefox," Mozilla noted.
But we will never see this kind of behavior change until people start demanding it.  And even after all of the horrible abuses that have been publicized over the past several years, one recent poll found that 43 percent of all Americans are still answering yes to the following question...
“Would you be willing to give up some of your personal freedom in order to reduce the threat of terrorism?”
Obviously we still have a long way to go.

Meanwhile, the emerging Big Brother police state gains a little bit more ground with each passing day.

One minor error about the California couple who had their child kidnapped by the state. He did need surgery--even the second hospital (Kaiser) concurred on that point. That really wasn't the issue. The issue was whether the child was in immediate grave danger. Obviously, he wasn't, as Kaiser released him to go home for the time being. Even more disturbing, the police and CPS showed up at Kaiser while the child and his parents were still there. The demanded a written note from the Kaiser doctor that the child was safe, and got one. So, they KNEW there was no serious, immediate life-threating situation. And the next day, the police and CPS broke in to the family's home!!!

Ah,why mention Nazis only?

How about Stalin?

After all, the Chosenites claim the Nazis killed *6 million jews ( as if they wre the only important ones) while Stalin and his willing Chosenite executioners, SLAUGHTERED 60-100 MILLION - NON-JEWS!

The Germans were angels compared to the Soviets.

After the Allies gave 1/2 of Germany and the WHOLE of E. Eur. to Stalin, those countries were HELL ON EARTH!

So much for WWII and fighting for Freeeedommmm!

Why continue to mention the Nazis anyway, 60+ yrs. later?

How about Cambodia? How about Ruanda? Those are nearer this time. They were Genocides!



*Actually, the figure was down-graded to 2.5 Million.

Its actually pretty scary how far things have come. It wouldn't take much for someone to overstep and take complete control. Most of the structure is already there.

I'm fortunate that I enjoyed history as a subject. I suppose I'm more fortunate for remembering it. WWII was a very dark time in history. Its best we not forget what happened. Throw the ideology out. The amount of pain and death was staggering. However it may have started. It ended all because one person was never satisfied and continually wanted more.

With whats in place now. If anything ever comes to fruition. There is nowhere to go this time. Its a rather frightening thought actually.

I hear people say it could never happen, but it has many times throughout history. To believe that it would never be possible again is naive, or disingenuous.

What this country was founded on was freedom from tyranny. We believe we are born with certain rights that no entity has the power to take from us.

During my daily routine. I can't say the thought of terrorists crosses my mind much.

I have a horror story of my own with CPS. I called the governer's adovocacy office on them found out there was NO case number and it was a lie! I contacted CPS and of course they denied it at first but I told them I am done with you and don't try anything else. Never heard from them again.

ya, the "Nazis" stories came from the same source that has given us soooo many, many lies.
Why would we believe anything they say, even if it is partly true?

one aspect that IS TRUE is that most of the time when these non-human creatures are telling us their tales in their media is that they are usually "projecting" themselves onto the enemy du jour.

Your phrase "bright shining light of the world", reminds me of the book about Vietnam called "A bright shining lie". John Paul Vann an America in Vietnam (1988) is a book by Neil Sheehan, a former New York Times reporter who covered the Vietnam War. It is about retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel John Paul Vann and United States involvement in the Vietnam War.
Just food for thought, peace and good fortune to you all.

I take issue with a point in this article. I don't find many (or any, really) Americans who believe any of these silly security measures actually increase security. Everyone knows this is about control by the powerful of the weak.

The reason people haven't started shooting back at these black clad thugs yet is because the intrusions have been sufficiently minor en mass or not widespread enough, if severe. I believe both of those lines are being approached though. And I don't believe that the "Authorities" are actually aware of where the lines are right now. Even with their data rich predictions, I believe a certain amount of delusional thinking has lead them into this line of reasoning and course of action to begin with, and this delusional mindset ultimately will be their undoing because of their inability to apprehend reality.

That doesn't mean we are immune from widespread, intense suffering in the process of drawing our lines, but I believe they will be drawn.

If they are not drawn, or held, there will be no real humans left on the planet to concern themselves with this issue anyway. So, it's all good in the neighborhood.

SOMEBODY HERE NEEDS TO LEARN SOME REAL HISTORY AND STOP BLAMING NAZIS OR COMPARE TO THEM.

Mike said...

Anyone who knows the real history of the world pre and post WWII knows that The United States of AmeriKa IS The Fourth Reich! We cleaned the slate of hundreds of the Third Reich's big players, gave most of them new identities and made them citizens the minute they were on US soil! Is it a surprise to think these war criminals started creating their little fantasies of world domination as soon as they changed their names to Mr. and Mrs Smith? What a bunch of shit there is, packed between the average AmeriKan pair of ears!

Stop me if you heard this one before...

"Iran has made rapid strides in its missile program, and Iraq persists in a race to do the same." - Governor George W. Bush "A Period of Consequences" The Citadel - September 23, 1999

"He[An American president] should defend America’s interests in the Persian Gulf and advance peace in the Middle East, based upon a secure Israel." Governor George W. Bush, "A Distinctly American Internationalism," Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, Simi Valley, California, November 19, 1999
----------------------------------------------

The "nazis", were national socialists.

Mussolini was a socialist before he was a "fascist".

The self described German democratic republic(GDR), with their STASI, was socialist.

Kibbutzism is the Israeli flavor of zionism and socialism.

Leninism...

Trotskyism...

Stalinism...

Stop me if you've heard this one before...

Neoconservatives with their "bipartisan" political factions, front groups, police state propagandists, corporate terror/war profiteers, and dual covenant dupes are the American flavor of this extremist, statist, collective, old world ideology.

Those who use violence or the threat of violence for political change are terrorists, according to the dictionary definition.

Anyone who uses mass murder for political gain and influence, regardless if they're sitting in a cave or a limousine, can be considered a terrorist.

When I hear Americans using "911" for political gain and profit, it makes me sick, especially these politicians running around regurgitating the benefits of mass murder on Americans because they have some vested monetary or political interest. It's disgusting and shameful.

Perhaps the clapping walruses are naive and have been duped by artful maneuvers, forging chains for themselves, but time and truth has dissipated that illusion. Americans are opening their eyes, rejecting the overt military statism from political partisans and rediscovering the American experiment.

Terrorists use violence or the threat of violence for political gain. Americans who use violence or the threat of violence for political gain, are no better then the terrorists who "hate us for our freedom".

The good news is...the terrorists are getting easier to spot, because they always make demands after a violent act or threatening a violent act.

"War... is not the most favorable moment for divesting the monarchy of power. On the contrary, it is the moment when the energy of a single hand shows itself in the most seducing form." --Thomas Jefferson to Hector St. John de Crevecoeur, 1788. ME 7:115

"I have never dreamed that all opposition was to cease. The clergy, who have missed their union with the State, the Anglomen, who have missed their union with England, and the political adventurers, who have lost the chance of swindling and plunder in the waste of public money, will never cease to bawl on the breaking up of their sanctuary." --Thomas Jefferson to Gideon Granger, 1801. ME 10:259

"If we find our government in all its branches rushing headlong... into the arms of monarchy, if we find them violating our dearest rights, the trial by jury, the freedom of the press, the freedom of opinion, civil or religious, or opening on our peace of mind or personal safety the sluices of terrorism, if we see them raising standing armies, when the absence of all other danger points to these as the sole objects on which they are to be employed, then indeed let us withdraw and call the nation to its tents." -Thomas Jefferson to William Duane, 1811. ME 13:29

Mike is right about the 3rd and 4th reich.

I think people heavily reference Nazis because its something most people are aware of and can point to. I have no animosity towards Germans as a country or a people. My ancestry is German.

After experiencing events of recent. It is easier for me to comprehend how people get herded into a mindset.

Yes, governments are the largest wholesale killers.

Having said that. Would anyone want any government to have the capability to know everything you have ever said and done? Easily be able to find where you are currently located, and at their discretion fire a missile at you? That is about where were at.

Fill in the blank with your stereotype. It doesn't take much for someone to come to power and change the public's perception of acceptable then deem another group the enemy.

The way it looks now is like they are trying to draw the parallels between people who believe in constitution and terrorism.

What? You were taught that by the corrupted lying government and education system? Really?

Let me ask you:

When did the American system (government/media/education) start telling the truth?

(a) They always told the truth before WWII and since started lying to us

(b) They lied to us before WWII, started telling the truth during the war, then started lying again

(c) They have always lied

"I think people heavily reference Nazis because its something most people are aware of and can point to."

Only part correct since truthful history has never been dispensed to the people.

Unless the larger context is known and understood geographically, socioeconomic, political and yes in regards to the so called judeo-christian aspect the history of Europe and Germany can not be understood.

The trademarked Holocaust is the pivotal key to events unfolding visible now but in the plans for a long time.

As long as this topic is forbidden to be openly researched other than be flooded with onesided propaganda and outright lies the present powers have and will play this card until their devilish goals are reached and beyond.
This is their ace in the deck.

Why is everything referenced to some events which basically are not correctly presented?
Because they masses have been conditioned into the observable pawlow reflex and respond as directed every time.

Without braking this Holocaust dogma new strafing terms will be shot from the same source.
From Holocaust to Homeland terrorist
both are instigated mirages, both are played out with patsies and both will prevent real headway to drive those insatiable low-lifes out of their centers to harm mankind.

Looking at the conditions in the USA as it deteriorates, the constant maligned prewar Germany as a center of more freedoms for all those who truly love their Country and dare to deal with those who do not, seems more and more the better choice.
Look who and for what did some fear and hated the German Regime.
Most of them fled and set up shop in the USA the outcome of that you see now.

Break the hollow lies or no progress to regain American freedom will be possible.
The trap is set, the "6 Mill" myth the big spring.

America is the terrorist nation. It hoodwinks and paints a picture to its people that those it invades to war against, are conspiring to attack the US. So the government has to do attacks on itself to justify such disgusting attacks on innocent peoples.

People want to get touchy about whether there is truth in the accounts of Nazi history. Hitler was not a good-guy with best intentions for humanity. There are many similarities to our current culture and administrations. I think, if Hitler and his administration had been allowed to continue, we would see the same privacy and security atrocities we now see in our modern "civilized" culture.

Whether you think the historical Nazi account is true, ask yourself, do you like the direction we are headed? Also ask, what would Hitler do? If you want to remain in power, you must debilitate any who would seek to usurp that power. The gap is ever-widening between the general common population and its government through the constant attempts at acquisition of increased power and authority. The people that don't understand these words are the source for governments' increased acquisitions.

Why do so many Americans want us to become more like Nazi Germany? America Is Embracing The Secret Police Culture Of The Nazis.

This article is based on 2 false assumptions.

Rather, it is more accurate to say we do not know how to peaceably deal with violent crazy people who are backed by laws that are forever changing, in a system that has nothing to do with justice and a lot more to do with corrupt individuals who suffer from mental and emotional illnesses with an extreme and unnatural need to control everyone and everything, and will inflict lethal harm to anyone for any reason according to their warped perceptions of life.

The false assumption is that americans and the nation were ever any different culturaly, than they are today, they are not.
There has always been a seperation by those who use government for their(s) own needs while the rest of nation struggles to build and live within a commercialy structured life and who paid no attention ot feds until they became failures.

So after the all the lies about 9/11, Afghanistan, Iraq, now Iran (same lies), Libya, now Syria (same lies), you believe all the old lies? Hitler made 12 attempts to make peace—kind of like the Iranians have been doing—but Russia, England, France and USA all wanted war—kind of like Israel—so they kept provoking and lying. One example is Austria—they weren't "annexed", they voted to rejoin Germany, from which they'd been forcibly separated by the Treaty of Versailles/Russia, England, France and USA.

But most of us find it easier to identify our tyrants by close-on encounters - the arrest of lemonade stand operators, the entitlement-laden police approach ("we received an anonymous tip that someone matching your description..." blah blah blah - and many variations thereof here), etc. We're only lft with these web forums - for now - to make known to them and to our fellow citizens that Nazi criminals run your life, and only a moment of inattention on your part, or the 'work' of a trusted friend, stands between you and the Bottomless Pit of their system.
