Exactly 70 years ago, May 7, 1945, Germany surrendered unconditionally ending the war in Europe. What many considered then an end of an evil darkness in Europe, eventually opened the doors for new evil to perpetuate.
Today in this country, that darkness is growing.
How this happened and why the mistakes of the greatest generation are becoming our albatross is coming to fruition with this administration. Social Progressives, radicals, have studied the playbooks of previously successful socialist organizers and have been working for the past seven decades to bring about change!
Remember the “Hope and Change” of 2008? They are in previously written playbooks too. So to is the “Forward” of the 2012 election. All are taken from scripts written by Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot and … Saul Alinsky.
The similarities between Adolph Hitler and Obama are stifling, and in the comparison, you see the beginnings of darkness:
- Both Hitler and Obama originally had last names that were changed later in life. Hitler used to be Schicklegruber, and Obama’s last name was Soetoro.
- Both Hitler and Obama hid their real identities. Hitler had a Jewish ancestry, and Obama a Muslim one. But unlike Hitler, Obama flaunted his Muslim roots in his start as a politician in order to defuse the inevitable firestorm. His ploy of “hiding in plain sight” worked very well.
- Both Hitler and Obama wrote ghost-written autobiographies prior to the start of their run for political office. Hitler wrote Mein Kampf (My Struggle), and Obama wrote Dreams Of My Father.
- Both men then wrote a second book talking about their goals for Germany and America. Hitler wrote A New World Order, and Obama wrote The Audacity of Hope.
- Both Hitler and Obama held rallies in outdoor stadiums to excite and inflame the people’s passions.
- Obama has tried to disarm American just like Hitler did in Germany.
- Both created programs that nationalized sectors of the economy and gave the central government more control.
- Both found enemies within the state that enabled them to energize their constituents with polarizing force against enemies. In Germany it was the Jews. In America, well, Obama hasn’t stopped yet, but with tentacles of the IRS and Justice Department he has targeted conservatives, Christians and police.
Anita Dittman, now 86 years young, lived through the Nazi years of Hitler’s Germany. She remembers Hitler’s rise to power and what it was like living under his dictatorship. Dittman also survived the Holocaust and has recently told her story, which is being included in a project called “Trapped in Hitler’s Hell.”
“Mother read the review to me from a morning paper she had found lying on the street. Her words, though spoken in hushed tones, reverberated throughout the house. They fell on my unbelieving ears and caused an instant flood of tears–tears of a child too young to grasp the meaning of such a word as anti-Semitism. All I knew was that my dream of growing up to become the world’s best ballet dancer had just been shattered. It didn’t matter that we didn’t understand why we were being persecuted. Jews, along with communists and other anti-Nazis, were not allowed to question it. Soon we would have only one freedom: to die,” Dittman said.
Olive Tree Ministry recently held a conference called Understanding the Times at which Dittman spoke. She told those in attendance that when she saw the pictures of Obama with a halo over his head during the 2008 presidential campaign that it gave her nightmares. She spoke of the similarity between the two men, referring to their own self-importance, self-righteousness, and demand for having everything their way.
On Dittman from WND:
“She is warning America that she sees now the same conditions she saw then.
“Including a leader who lies, fails to keep his promises and has visions of more than grandeur.”
The parallels and unfolding of this play can help people who understand Hitler’s subtle and sinister rise to power, and enable them to predict many of the actions of Barack Hussein Obama.
The question is whether the electorate and the elected have the courage and wisdom to see the historical parallels and reverse this.
So why was Saul Alinsky referenced at the beginning?
In an article by Awr Hawkins: How Saul Alinsky Taught Barack Obama Everything He Knows About Civic Upheaval – Breitbart:
Throughout Barack Obama’s campaign for the presidency and his subsequent time in that office, two things have been said again and again: 1. He has a grudge against America. 2. He takes his marching orders from Saul Alinsky (1909-1972), particularly as encapsulated in the book “Rules for Radicals.”
Anyone who listens to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, or Mark Levin regularly is going to hear point one frequently. For all three men, to the chagrin of their critics, have relentlessly warned Americans that Obama believes it’s time for this country to eat a little humble pie: that it’s time to put away talk of America the exceptional and bring on America the apologetic.
As Limbaugh in particular has said:
Obama has a chip on his shoulder about [this] country. He doesn’t think of it as great…He thinks of it as criminal in many ways, as guilty in many ways. He thinks our superpower status was the result of a theft [of the] resources and ideas from other nations all over the world…And I think Obama wants the people of this country to find out what it’s like to live the way he thinks we have forced other people around the world to live.
So there’s point one: the assertion that Obama has a grudge against this country. And this leads to point two, and the question of what role Mr. Alinsky’s writings and overthrow tactics have had on our president. (By “overthrow tactics” I mean Alinsky’s methods for not only persuading but also enabling the “have-nots” in our society to overthrow the haves and take away their power.)
According to a Patriot Update article entitled, “Proof That Obama is Linked to Radical Alinsky:
Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals are so deeply ingrained in the Democrat Party that it’s difficult to tell where Alinsky begins and people like Barack Obama end. They are, basically, one and the same.
To prove this point, Saul Alinsky’s son L. David Alinsky wrote a letter for the Obama campaign in 2008.
“Obama learned his lesson well,” L. David Alinsky wrote. “I am proud to see that my father’s model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday.”
Barack Obama began his Alinsky worship very early in his career. According to a study on Alinsky, “in 1985 Obama began a four-year stint as a community organizer in Chicago, working for an Alinskyite group called the Developing Communities Project.”
Obama spent his entire youth taking classes and later teaching workshops on Alinsky’s methods. He worked hard to follow Alinsky’s rule of “blending in”.
“True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism,” Alinsky writes. The trick is to penetrate existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties.
Perhaps it’s quite a leap to compare these two world leaders. However when a Holocaust survivor says she sees the same things happening to America today that happened under Hitler in Germany, it should cause for pause.
It’s also important to remember to whom Saul Alinsky dedicated “Rules for Radicals:”
