From A Disenfranchised Voter in Montgomery County, Maryland.
This famous aphorism should be a model by which we all live:
Have you ever wondered why some people continue to make the same mistakes?
While in college, one of my psychology professors declared change does not take place in one’s life unless the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of change. In context with today’s political climate, it appears we are in danger of repeating past mistakes.
To complicate matters, monuments representing our history are being torn down and history textbooks are being censored to reflect the new Marxist dialogue. Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa are working diligently to erase and change the narrative of history. The deep state is also working feverishly to spin and distort history, especially when it comes to the Democrat party’s involvement in slavery and civil rights. The truth is that the Democrat party is the party of slavery and Abraham Lincoln was a Republican who took a stand against slavery. That is one example of how those in power used a special technique to manipulate the masses.
In 1925, the German propaganda machine used a technique called the big lie.
The idea behind the German propaganda technique was that by using a lie so colossal, no one would believe that someone could have produced it to distort the truth so infamously. The most recent examples of this in modern times are the Russian collusion hoax and false claims perpetuating that President Trump is racist.
In 1933 Germany disarmed the Jews. This initially began in Berlin where large-scale raids took place to confiscate weapons, and later spread throughout the country. Mandatory registration of guns and firearms was required, which the Gestapo used to locate weapons owned by Jewish people. Jewish weapon owners were disarmed through warrants issued by the police. Newly released documents show how the Third Reich used gun control to disarm and repress its enemies, ultimately rendering them defenseless, which eventually led to the Holocaust.
The famous “Brownshirts” (goon squads): vandalized Jewish homes; ransacked Jewish businesses; burned Jewish synagogues; and terrorized, beat, and murdered those who resisted. Very similar tactics are being attributed to the Antifa and BLM anarchists today. The Holocaust could have been prevented if the guns owned by German Jews had not been registered or given up.
1. Do we see history repeating itself?
2. Are we so naive that we do not recognize the same techniques used by the Germans to control the Jews?
3. Why do we still believe the colossal lies of the Marxist left politicians?
Our forefathers recognized the importance of citizens bearing arms. Alexander Hamilton, writing in the Federalist Papers, called a well-regulated militia “the most natural defense of a free country.” The men writing the Bill of Rights wanted every citizen to be in the militia, and they wanted everyone in the militia to be armed. The text of the Second Amendment reads in full:
The framers of the Bill of Rights adapted the wording of the amendment from nearly identical clauses in some of the original 13 state constitutions.
With the dissolving of police departments across America and the refusal of leftist politicians to criticize or condemn street violence, who is left to defend our great country and Constitution? Alexander Hamilton had wisdom beyond his time.
The removal of guns and disarming of law-abiding Americans will only lead to history repeating itself and a new Holocaust in America. Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
