In the early days of the Third Reich, Hitler used a gaggle of psychopaths, thugs and other assorted trash as street muscle. They enforced Hitler’s evil with no legal standing. They were just a bunch of riff-raff that basically did whatever they wanted to do, protected by the Nazi Party.
They were called the Brown Shirts because of the color of their uniforms.
In a time before Hitler rounded up all the Jews, loaded them on boxcars and sent them to concentration camps to be systematically slaughtered, the Brown Shirts made life miserable for them. They beat them without mercy, for no other reason than they had fallen out of favor with Hitler. They were a race of victims, a convenient target for Hitler to falsely blame Germany’s fiscal miasma on and objects of ridicule and unbelievable physical abuse.
November 9, 1938 was known as Kristallnacht, which means “The Night of Broken Glass” when Brown Shirts and other German civilization fanatics carried out a program that broke the glass out of Jewish stores, businesses and synagogues, as law enforcement lifted not a finger while at least ninety-one Jews were murdered and thirty thousand Jewish men were carried off to concentration camps.
Although the Jews were the main targets of the Brown Shirts, they were not the only citizens to have reason to fear them. In fact, anybody who showed the slightest resistance to the Nazi policies were apt to be severely beaten or even disappear.
Fear of these thugs who roamed the streets with abandon, attacked anybody they chose, broke up meetings and instilled a paralyzing terror in the hearts of the German people eventually got so out of hand that even Hitler and his henchmen couldn’t even handle them, and they were disbanded.
Maxine Waters’ maniac raving, encouraging the harassment of those who disagree with her and her party’s politics is motivated by the same evil purposes as the creation of the Brown Shirts and could give birth to a very nasty movement, a “law” unto itself and totally out of anybody’s control.
The purpose, to physically suppress, terrorize and hound political opponents, with complete political dominance by one party is the goal.
But this is not 1930’s Germany, and the Democrat Party is not the Nazi Party. Further still, the citizens of America are not a helpless ethnic minority and are awakening to the fact that they are under attack. The manifestation of their anger will soon surface, and unless these radical voices and financed mobs are called to heel, there will be blood.
And part of that blood will be on the hands of Maxine Waters and her ilk who carelessly and viciously call for the persecution of all who disagree with their political beliefs.
I have been on this earth for 82 years. I have seen America in all kinds of political, fiscal and societal situations, wars, recessions, racial upheaval and reactionary violence, but I have never seen an elected public official claim that America can be civil only if their party is in control or encourage the public to target and harass members of the opposing party.
Already the worm is beginning to turn as Nancy Pelosi was harassed by political protesters in Florida this weekend.
Am I condoning that, saying that it’s alright as long as it’s my side doing the harassment?
Absolutely not. Anybody should be able to espouse and support any political agenda or candidate they so desire without fear of being terrorized by a mob, and yes folks, what we are seeing are mobs of belligerent, foul-mouthed zealots apt to break out into violence at any moment.
But the old saying is true: what goes around comes around. And if these incendiary incidences continue, there is a very large, and mainly sleeping, contingency of middle America that will be awakened and will simply not take being spit upon, called foul names and woe be to the one stupid enough to lay a hand on them.
So, Maxine, Hillary, Corey and all the rest of you rabble-rousers, it’s time to call off the dogs, to rein in the fledgling brown shirts before you foment something you can’t possibly control that can only end in a kind of violence you can’t even imagine.
Remember, America: the same political bunch who are willing to sic the mobs on you are the same bunch that wants much stricter gun laws.
Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem.
What do you think?
God Bless America
