Commenting on how vicious the liberal media and progressives are in attacking President Trump and particularly his Christian supporters, Army Lt. Col. Robert Maginnis (ret.) said that "progressives hate us" and, if given the opportunity, will to Christians "exactly what the Nazis did to the Jews on Kristallnacht."
Maginnis, a West Point graduate who served as an Airborne-Ranger infantry officer, is the author of five books, thousands of articles, and he comments frequently on television and radio.
In a Dec. 29 interview on the Up Front in the Prophetic radio show, host Francine Fosdick discussed how Christians support President Trump because he is keeping his campaign promises and pushing policies that mirror the beliefs of many Bible-believing Americans.
In response, Lt. Col. Maginnis said, “The last election was a turning point. If we got Hillary Clinton, then you never would have heard about Russian collusion, you wouldn’t have these shenanigans."
"They would have been just the opposite," he said. "They would have gone through with what Obama started, with the IRS [corruption], the Justice Department, and the problems we had with the intelligence agencies, and big government would expand, and so forth. That’s what they want to do."
“If you’ve got the keys to the jail, you control it, and then you determine who is going to go in it and who is going to stay out of it," said Maginnis. "And I tell you, Christians are the ones that are going to go in it first. They really hate us, and it goes back to what I said earlier. …"
“We are the salt and light in this culture, and we are the targets," said Maginnis. "The progressives hate us to the point that they would do exactly what the Nazis did to the Jews on Kristallnacht in November of 1938."
"They would go after them, and they would incarcerate them, and they would kill them if possible," he said. "We’re at a turning point, and it’s a very critical turning point. People need to understand history; history has a terrible way of repeating itself.”
According to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, "Kristallnacht, literally, 'Night of Crystal,' is often referred to as the 'Night of Broken Glass.' The name refers to the wave of violent anti-Jewish pogroms which took place on November 9 and 10, 1938. This wave of violence took place throughout Germany, annexed Austria, and in areas of the Sudetenland in Czechoslovakia recently occupied by German troops."
"During the pogrom, some 30,000 Jewish males were rounded up and taken to concentration camps," stated the museum. "This was the first time Nazi officials made massive arrests of Jews specifically because they were Jews, without any further cause for arrest.
"In the aftermath of Kristallnacht, the Nazi regime ordered the Jewish community to pay a 1 billion Reichsmark 'atonement tax' and rapidly enacted many anti-Jewish laws and edicts," said the museum.
