Fact is Hitler came to power via a democratic election. Strongly winning the woman's vote with promises of more social welfare. Shutting the doors behind him as our Founders have warned in countless writings but especial Washington or more properly our Framers Farewell Address
"But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed. The precedent must always greatly overbalance in permanent evil any partial or transient benefit, which the use can at any time yield."
Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. "
I have no idea why Mr. O did not simply hit the ignorant atheists over the head with this at least.
The French resistance was actually very small early in the war. A large portion of the French population was SOCIALIST; about 30%, so like good socialists did not think Hitler winning was such a bad thing. This goes a very long way in explaining France's remarkable war time production in the service of Hitler.
But the core of the Marquis or French Resistance were Jews. French and foreign Jews who had tried to escape to France. Their greatest challenge was acquiring guns until the Allies were able to begin supplying them - rather late in the war. In fact as the British government had been strict with gun control so a desperate plea was put out to Americans to send their weapons to good British families for home defense. The French government had good records and the Germans were excellent at gathering them up.
Gun laws in Germany before the rise of Hitler were meant to control his homosexual led Brown shirts. Sadly Hitler survived several close calls with bombs rather than guns. As the dissidents did not have access to adequate weapons. NAZI party members had guns every one else? Progressive selective enforcement of law is nothing new. Hitler was evil but he was no coward and left many opportunities for people to assassinate him but they did not have the right weapons.
Then one must also consider the Bielski family and the 1,200 Jews they saved behind Hitler's lines in Russia. Not possible unless they had and could handle weapons.
No One has once again been forced into the delusional world of Progressive alternative history to try and bring Jon out of it.
The real reason Hitler was not stopped before WWII was simply that Chamberlain and many others refused to understand the irrational will of Progressive/collectivism as a philosophy. 'Some sane person inside of Germany will surely bring him down during even the phony war.'
All Chamberlain had to do was let the British officer assigned to Berlin before the War; an excellent marksman, to assassinate Hitler from his window to the parade Dias, as he requested.
It is true one man with one gun, one bullet was willing and able to kill Hitler, before it began.
None of us ever know that which we do not. Therefore approach Constitutional subjects with humility and follow the prescribed methods not bogus executive orders - Like FDR's to lock of Americans of Japanese ancestry with no Constitutional regard. Funny how that one is always over looked by Progressives.
NO One is surprised Progressives believe they can rewrite history by simply imposing their general will by voting on it or more likely attempting to make it appear so.
As Mr. Varney reported; with his excellent degree in Economics form the London School, the Germans are pulling their gold back from America and France. The Germans experience with America's Progressive council of *experts*, was some help and a equal amount of exploitative profiteering.
So Germans bring back their gold reserves in the event they might have to deal with hyper-inflation is completely understandable and responsible. Telling the general world what is driving this decision is more problematic.
Fact is Obama is demanding to deficit spend at a level which will crash the dollar and our economy if not checked. Our dishonored press reporting opinions puts greater weight on a clearly and increasing delusional Krugger; called out as a political hack by the collectivist economist, then that proven economic theory.
Poor Jon has trouble with history and economics simply because his common sense has been purposefully clouded. Making him a really big Progressive mental shadow puppet in the Progressive Theater of the completely irrational. To his credit I believe he is trying to be rational and objective. But the Krugger trillion dollar coin must be his wake up call. Exactly why Krugger called him *ignorant* and *lazy*.
Germans pulling their gold reserves from America safe keeping is an important wake up call for us. Mr. Varney I believe alone had the education to understand the true significance and highlight it. Unfortunately it takes a great deal of education to understand the full significance of it.
Americans must some how cut through the largely mindless Progressive prattle. Nealry impossible with our dishonored, dishonorable and intellectual lazy press which no longer understands the term journalism.
