The other night I watched a PBS special on Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass), a series of coordinated attacks against Jews throughout Nazi Germany and parts of Austria on November 9-10, 1938. These were carried out by Hitler’s forces and non-Jewish civilians and resulted in the death of hundreds of Jews who were incarcerated and sent to concentration camps. A vast number of Jewish homes, hospitals and schools were destroyed and more than 7,000 Jewish businesses were devastated. Over 1,000 synagogues were burned to the ground. I was able to find a transcript to further review the two infamous Nuremberg Laws that Hitler initiated during his rise to power. From those, more than 2,000 antisemitic laws were ratified at all levels of government, thereby sealing the fate of the Jews of the Third Reich.
To my utter horror, however, I realized that these laws survived the Nazi regime and are now being implemented against Jews and Christians here and throughout the world. In the U.S., our students are coming under state control through the Common Core “standards” adopted in the 45 states that succumbed to multimillions in government Race-to-the-Top dollars. When challenged by parents, teachers and administrators who are clearly trained in the community-organizer mode are refuting, bullying, and intimidating these critics. I’ve selected a handful of the 2,000 laws to cite and compare.
April 1, 1933: A week after Hitler came to power, he ordered all Jewish shops, banks, offices and department store closed. Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels defended this draconian move as a legitimate response to the anti-German "atrocity propaganda" being spread by "international Jewry." Signs were posted – "Germans, defend yourselves, buy only at German shops!" The Arab League, founded in 1944, began boycotting Jewish goods, and later rejected all who conducted business with the state of Israel.
Today we have BDS – boycott-divestment-sanctions – which are advocated by Muslim students on college and university campuses, and supported by school staff and professors. Rallies are held with Islamist videos and guest speakers who target companies that conduct business with Israel. The groups submit Israel boycott resolutions to The National Council of the American Studies Association, in journals and academic associations worldwide. The director of the Center for Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Sydney is being sued in the Federal Court of Australia because he refused to sponsor a fellowship application from an Israeli academic. France’s Left Party announced its support for BDS. Britain’s plans to issue Islamic Bonds would de facto discriminate against Israel. Ireland’s BDS activists affix yellow boycott stickers on Israeli products in stores. The Methodist Church of Britain consistently targets Israel with criticism while ignoring the sins of her foes. The methods are different; the results are virtually identical.
President Obama uses the same tactics (also described as Chicago-style brass knuckles) to marginalize and demonize his adversaries, such as with the Republican party, Wall Street executives, Fox News, news commentator Rush Limbaugh, and others perceived as obstacles to his radical agenda.
May, 1933: One hundred years after German poet Heinrich Heine said, “Where one burns books, one will soon burn people,” members of the right-wing student organization of Wilhelm-Humboldt University in Berlin tossed tens of thousands of books from their library and other sources into a roaring bonfire at the adjacent Franz Joseph Platz. Denouncing the authors, mostly Jewish – such as Albert Einstein, but also Thomas Mann, Jack London, Ernest Hemingway and others – they purged their country of ideas, philosophies, and advancement.
Today, Ireland censors books opposed to Catholic dogma, terrorism and pornography, and in April, 2013, Ireland’s Teacher’s Union relinquished its freedoms of thought, research and growth to collaborate with Islam in banning Israel’s books and choosing to be instructed and indoctrinated by the most violent culture on earth, who are as barbaric today as they were 14 centuries ago. At the same time, Scotland’s Clackmannanshire Council announced they would rebuff all economic support for Israel.
Throughout America, a select group of left-leaning executives, with not one academic among them, created the Common Core Standards to completely replace all previous textbooks from which our students learned and subsequently formed our exceptional nation, with its advancements in technology, science, medicine, space travel and more. Historical facts have been purged, along with the best in literature. The new lessons destroy individuality and disregard the developmental stages, the children’s maturity, and ethics. Just as the Fuhrer offered no flexibility and tutored all students to become soldiers for the Reich, these textbooks present a fallacious, whitewashed and glorified Islam while systematically diminishing and distorting Christianity and Judaism. In addition, there are key omissions and false premises about America, her founding and her values. The methods differ; the results are the same. Education, because of its impact on future generations, is among the first institutions targeted by despots.
The 1935 Nuremberg Laws and the 1933 Law for the Prevention of Hereditarily Diseased Offspring were introduced to distinguish Aryans from the untermenschen (subhumans), targeting people for eugenics and to initiate a euthanasia program. The Nazis implemented a vast racial caste system, where teachers measured their students’ skulls and noses and recorded hair and eye color for classification into the Volksliste, choosing Nordic traits over the “racially impure,” which often humiliated the Jewish and Romani students. Days after the Kristallnacht, Goering decreed to remove Jews from German economic life, thereby destroying 30,000 Jewish-owned businesses.
In addition to registration for Obamacare, Common Core Standards will feature a data-mining system to track test scores, academic progress; information on religion, political beliefs and affiliations, family income, discipline, sexual behavior and attitudes, extracurricular activities, DNA, blood type, psychological evaluations and more, to evaluate the students and entrap them into pre-determined schools and jobs. The private database, inBloom, violates our Fourth Amendment rights and conflicts with students’ rights to pursue happiness. Paralleling the Nazi laws, students will be prevented from choosing and entering specific careers and trades
Also under consideration is the use of Galvanic Skin Response bracelets to evaluate skin response to emotional stimuli. Bill Gates admitted the data would enable him to design standards and software to create their steadfast market and train future employees under a socialist system. This is the modern-day social engineering to seek their version of “racial purity.”
May 21, 1935: Jews were banned from serving as Wehrmacht officers.
Since 2009, the current administration has been weakening our military and reducing our power by dismissing highly decorated military officials, Jewish and Christian, most ranked Colonel or above, in the five branches of US armed forces. The allegations vary, with some notably frivolous, but the effect is the same. Former White House Chief-of-Staff Rahm Emanuel explained this as a way of dismissing those who disagree with this government’s ideology.
April, 1937: Municipal authorities in Berlin exclude Jewish children from state schools.
College and university administrations across America are currently subjecting Jewish students to antisemitic harassment, as their departments sponsor, fund and legitimize BDS events with films and speakers who advocate Israel’s economic destruction. Islamists, aided by left-leaning professors, are threatening Jewish students in schools, making life, at the least, distressing, and their pleas for help fall on deaf ears. Parents of K-12 students across America are choosing homeschooling in record numbers, as they see the decline of public schools. But the current administration is taking aggressive steps to stop homeschooling in the United States.
Christian students throughout the Islamic Middle East and Africa have been attacked and killed in their dormitories in the name of Islam. The result is the same as in Berlin, now with Jewish and Christian students experiencing exclusion and danger. Palestinians have intentionally fired rockets at Jewish schools and school buses; Islamic separatists targeted the Beslan school in the North Caucasus region of the Russian Federation on September 1, 2004, capturing 1100 hostages, including 777 children, and killing 380.
July, 1938: Jews are prohibited from owning gun stores or trading weapons, enacted within days before Kristallnacht (again proving the event was planned). In 1922, Hitler said, “An evil exists that threatens every man, woman, and child of this great nation. We must take steps to ensure our domestic security and protect our homeland.” The Weimar Republic had already legislated gun registration to disarm Nazis and Communists. Hitler reinforced the existing German law, banning Jews from obtaining a license to manufacture firearms or ammunition and then prohibiting Jews from possessing dangerous weapons, including firearms.
After the shooting and mass murder of schoolchildren and teachers in Sandy Hook, CT, in December of 2012, Obama and his minions began demonizing guns and ammunition, and championed eliminating all guns. Yet the US Federal government and Department of Homeland Security (DHS, named for Hitler’s Office of Fatherland Security) purchased 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition for domestic use. The DHS has national, not foreign, authority, yet purchased 450 million rounds of hollow point bullets that are even banned for military use by the Geneva Convention, enough for a seven-year war with Americans, DHS also purchased $400,000 worth of radiation-protection pills, and thousands of bulletproof roadside checkpoint booths. Might we count on the cooperation of the Occupiers (Wall Street, etc.), the Knockout gangs, and steadfast Obamaphiles to form a domestic army? After all, was it not Barack Obama who said on the campaign trail: "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded?"
Senator Dianne Feinstein (D), gun opponent and senior senator from California, introduced the Assault Weapons ban of 2013, to stop the sale, transfer, importation and manufacture of military-style and high-capacity weapons. She is supported by citizens who willingly relinquish their freedom to protect themselves. Her requirements, posted on her website, include many rules from the Nazi-era control requirements concerning sale, transfer, importation, manufacture, registration with photo and fingerprints, and specific features of rifles and handgun, including type and serial number. The purpose is to weaken political opponents and the masses.
At this writing, I received information that matches Hitler’s Schutzstaffel, his Protection Squadron or defense corps, aka the SS, of which the Waffen-SS was the armed wing. The latest news is that Louis Gohmert, Republican Representative from Texas, exposed Obamacare’s Secret Security Force.
July 11, 1938: The Reich Ministry of the Interior banned Jews from health spas.
The YMCA of St. Paul, in a timely report, explains that the Minnesota police force supports the creation of a one-hour “Muslim girls only” swim time. This reinforces their disconnectedness and non-assimilation in America. Muslims have always had the right to use the facility alongside Americans of all races and religions, but now the Sharia-compliant authorities have agreed to reserve an hour during which Jews and Christians will be forbidden from this health spa.
The Constitution of the United States is under attack by forces that wish to usurp our soul. There is no excuse, and we must not allow it to happen. America is a step behind Europe in its current efforts to sell out. The details are different than in WWII, but the similarity is chilling – it was a sell-out to tyranny! Had Europe heeded the signs and acknowledged Hitler’s plan, rather than acquiesced to Hitler’s earlier demands, they might have averted the epic catastrophe of World War II. Now is the time to take back our country and to resist both Islamic and Communist tyranny. And if not now, when?

OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!
By Tabitha Korol
The practice of beheading dates back to Greek and Roman times. The Roman Empire used it for its own citizens while crucifying others. Beheading has been traditional in Europe since the Middle Ages. In Scandinavia, it was customary to behead a nobleman by sword (a noble weapon of war), but a commoner by axe. Beheading was abolished in Britain (1747), in Denmark (1892), in Sweden (1902), and in Norway (1905). With the exception of the UK, All European countries that previously beheaded have not totally abolished the death penalty.
China also used it widely, until the communist regime replaced it with shooting in the 20th century. Japan beheaded up to the end of the 19th century, then turned to hanging. The Nazis used the guillotine-like Fallbeil in Germany and Austria between 1933 and 1949 (E. Germany, 1966) on an estimated 16,500 persons who were considered common criminals and traitors.
Beheading is a “sacred Islamic Jihadi practice.” Endorsed by the Qur’an, and performed by most Islamic rulers, it continues to this day as the most brutal and degrading method of killing infidels – Jews, Christians, Hindus, and anyone considered a polytheist.
Quranic verses dictate beheading Kaffirs. One example is 5:33-“The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution(by beheading), or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter.”
The most virulently intolerant Islamic dictatorship in the world is The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, that spreads and promotes (fundamentalist) Wahhabism worldwide –incites and encourages Jihadis to hate and behead thousands of non-Muslims and other infidels, freely and without remorse – and does so to this day.
The bullies in the American Government can decapitate without running the risk of the public outcry that would certainly follow a public execution. When the Pentagon was urged to disapprove of war-college instructor Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley’s teaching about radical Islam, they did the next best thing. According to The Washington Times, Dooley’s Freedom of Speech, guaranteed by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and defended by the Army command review board of three generals and two colonels, was then rejected by a Sharia-compliant four-star general, thereby ending the promising Army career of an armor officer who was decorated for valor in Iraq and received glowing evaluations. A bloodless decapitation.
In true leadership, Dooley was preparing his men for overseas duty in the Middle East by educating them in radical Islam, when the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated organizations demanded the cessation of such teachings. This was followed by a student’s corroborative complaint to Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, resulting in another sharia-compliant Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Lloyd Austin’s removing LTC Dooley’s name from the Command List. After 18 years of diligence and productivity, family sacrifice, six deployments and exceptional officer evaluations, the latest of which awarded him the “best qualified” rating for promotion to colonel, the administration guillotined Dooley’s dream. A more honest, transparent government might have set up a real guillotine on the White House lawn and invited the public to witness.
Is that it? Does the solemn oath taken by officers of the United States Uniformed Services on commissioning now bow to foreign commands? This is the oath:
I, (name), do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
Officers in the service of the United States are bound by this oath to disobey any order that violates the Constitution of the United States. This lifetime obligation to defend the Constitution should also apply to Generals Dempsey and Austin.
Many dismissals have since come to light, including nine highly decorated military officials in the five branches of the US armed forces who were “suddenly fired” or “relieved of command” by our administration, a purging blamed on budget cuts. Former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel clarified this as an opportunity to shrink the military by dismissing those who disagree with government ideology, but couldn’t it also be a calculated shrinkage of the military.
A retired U.S. Army Major General explained this as an attempt to weaken and gut our military, thereby reducing our power. The expulsion continued with several at the very apex of the chain of command, among them second military commander of the US Nuclear Weapons System, Major General Michael Carey, who had some of the highest military clearances, in charge of the most sensitive nuclear arsenals in our nation, with a distinctive career spanning 35 years of commendable service”; and Col. Eric Tilley, commander of the US Army Garrison Japan. Others critical of events at Benghazi were accused of criminal violations or misconduct for exposing the “transparent” handling by Obama and Hillary Clinton. The bloodless stroke of the pen is equal to the blade of sword or guillotine. Heads are rolling, indeed.
Breitbart.com compiled a list of more than 197 military commanders, most ranked Colonel or above, purged since 2009, from charges of sexual misconduct to “ethical lapses,” to improper saluting. In addition, 157 Air Force Majors were terminated on November 30, 2011, later followed by several Navy commanders who were terminated in May, 2012, for varied or unspecific reasons. Retired US Army Maj. Gen. Paul Vellely asserted his belief that this is part of the President’s strategy to reduce America’s standing in the world…”intentionally weakening and gutting our military.” A list of names is provided: click here.
Arnold Ahlert opined in his article, Obama’s Military Purge, in FrontPage Magazine, that the Obama administration appears to be on a mission to undermine the integrity of the military, in addition to being intolerant of any opposition to his agenda.
Obama has severed the heads of all branches of our military, decapitated our country’s armed forces. Is this not a definition of warfare by other means – to employ military and operational tactics to prevent opposing forces from conducting triumphal combat operations? Rather than traditional open battle, this unconventional form of warfare is nevertheless a stealth, bloodless, but lethal, military victory over America’s fighting forces. (Not to mention that the Muslim Brotherhood seems to be “heading” the operation of our government.)
And one final note: the Common Core standards for the education (indoctrination) process is designed to decapitate the intellectual growth of American children. Common Core dumbs down the learning process and is nothing more nor less than social engineering. America’s Founders and the notables of the 19th and 20th centuries excelled without such programming. In fact, it was their ability to excel in uncommon fashion that brought us to great heights in all fields of endeavor. Although mostly home schooled, and often self-taught in their later years, they created an exceptional nation. The aforementioned tactics and Common Core are simply decapitation by other means of the future of our precious Republic.
"The Kristallnacht was started by one individual,’ she said, referring to Hershel Grynszpan, a 17-year old German-born Polish Jew who assassinated Ernst von Rath, a German diplomat stationed in Paris. “It shows how a minor event in history can lead to mass destruction.” Cleveland Jewish News, Nov. 1, 2013.
Roni Berenson, a Holocaust survivor, was interviewed about Kristallnacht in the Cleveland Jewish News (CJN). Born in Berlin, she remembers being pulled out of school on the day after the violence, and she and her parents boarded the next-to-last ship that left Europe. Berenson blames the events of Kristallnacht on Herschel Grynszpan, himself a Jewish victim of the Nazi menace.
Herschel Grynszpan, was a seventeen-year-old German-born, Jewish refugee of Polish parents. He had been sent to an uncle in Paris to escape persecution, but now his parents were among many thousands of Polish Jews expelled and abandoned at the German-Polish border only to be refused entry and sanctuary in their native land. Perhaps distraught over their situation and his own, and fearful of the future, Grynszpan bought a gun and shot Ernst von Rath, a low-level German embassy official assigned to assist him. And it was this minor incident, this shooting that would be termed an assassination, that the Nazis used to justify Kristallnacht and the unspeakable brutality to follow.
History shows that German journalist, Wilhelm Marr, coined the term “antisemitism” in 1879, in his published pamphlet, “The Victory of Judaism over Germanism,” pronouncing it a science rather than the more precise Judenhass, or Jewish-hatred. After his next pamphlet in 1880, “The Way to Victory of the Germanic Spirit over the Jewish Spirit,” he founded the League of Antisemites, the first German organization dedicated to oppose the alleged Jewish threat to German culture, and force the Jews from Germany.
By 1920, The German Workers’ Party became the National Socialist Workers’ Party, aka Nazis. It brought the right’s nationalism and the left’s socialism together against big business, the middle class, and capitalism, shifting to antisemitism and anti-Marxism in 1930. The Party advocated a “master race,” to exclude or exterminate Jews, homosexuals, Romani, blacks, the physically and mentally handicapped, Jehovah’s Witnesses and all political opponents.
Within a few short years, Germany had lived through The Great Depression, the Weimar Republic’s collapse, and the surge of unemployment. The rise of Hitler’s Nazism was established by 1921, with Hitler’s appointment as party leader, followed by his appointment as Chancellor of Germany in 1933, and instituted his totalitarian regime, the Third Reich. The Nurenberg Laws were introduced at the Party’s annual Rally in 1935, when they legally defined who was Jewish in order to legislate against German Jews’ basic rights, which eventually extended to other untermenschen (subhumans).
Adolf Hitler planned the pogrom for 10 November, Martin Luther’s birthday, following Luther’s writings of 1543, “On the Jews and Their Lies,” and the anniversary of the infamous Beer Hall Putsch of 8 November, followed by a staged march on 9 November, 1923. But that was also the day that von Rath died of the gunshot wounds and, not surprisingly, Foreign Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels saw this as the perfect opportunity to declare this a Jewish attack on the German people, a way to justify previous antisemitic pogroms and carnage in Germany. He announced that the German people were so outraged by the Jew’s “assassination” of a German diplomat, that they spontaneously took the law into their own hands.
Ask any American to write the date, and he’ll write November 9 or 11/9. Ask any European to write the same date and he will write 9 November or 9/11. You see, the rest of the world always puts the day first, followed by the month; therefore, the date was 9/11. The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem was and Islamists are generally great admirers of Hitler and both cultures assign particular significance to special seasons and anniversaries. Kristallnacht began on November 9 (written as 9/11) and the World Trade Center was bombed by Islamists on 9/11. I suspect this was not a coincidence, but a deliberate choice.
Yes, Grynszpan had been distressed over his parents and his own situation, but shooting von Rath was merely a pretext for the pogrom. While Berenson accepts the events as reported by the Nazi press, the reality is that the Nazis had entered a new radical level of violence, and the SS (Schutzstaffel) had been created explicitly, months before, as the primary organization to plan and carry out such a large-scale attack.
The Holocaust Encyclopedia stipulates:
The Nazi Party leadership, assembled in Munich for the commemoration, chose to use the occasion as a pretext to launch a night of antisemitic excesses. Propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels, a chief instigator of the pogrom, intimated to the convened Nazi 'Old Guard' that 'World Jewry' had conspired to commit the assassination and announced that, "the Führer has decided that … demonstrations should not be prepared or organized by the Party, but insofar as they erupt spontaneously, they are not to be hampered."
The well-orchestrated, two-day pogrom took place throughout Germany, annexed Austria, and in areas of the German-occupied Sudetenland in Czechoslovakia. Nazi party officials, Storm Troopers (SS) and Hitler Youth (SA) now had their orders. Armed with weapons and sledgehammers, they flooded the streets on cue. They ransacked 1600 synagogues, setting some afire with their worshippers inside; broke windows and doors; and looted synagogues, Jewish homes and businesses – but with commands to support the fiction of outrage at the “assassination”; to remove archives and artifacts before vandalizing synagogues; safeguard non-Jewish German life and property and all foreigners; and arrest young, healthy Jewish men, of which 30,000 were sent to concentration camps in waiting trains.
About 100 Jews were beaten to death in homes and on the streets. Thousands of Jewish homes and about 8,000 Jewish shops were vandalized and devastated. Jewish cemeteries were wrecked, tombstones smashed, and corpses unearthed and defiled. Women were raped; people committed suicide, and Jews were blamed for the pogrom and fined the equivalent of today’s $37 trillion for damage and $37 billion for clearing the wreckage. Another 100,000 victims were deported to death camps.
German college students burned censored books written by all Jews, and Christians like Thomas Mann and Mark Twain. A century before, German-Jewish poet Heinrich Heine had predicted, “Where they burns books, they will eventually burn people.”
Grynszpan did not resist arrest and immediately confessed to the crime. He was not tried or put to death in a country where death was meted out for far smaller infractions, as a trial would have exposed the government’s collusion. Rather, he was imprisoned, and spent the rest of his life in German custody and declared dead by West German officials in 1960.
Herschel Grynszpan was the patsy who took the blame for Kristallnacht. He was as much the justification for Kristallnacht as an Israeli apartment building is for Palestinian violence, and as a videotape was for the mayhem and slaughter in Benghazi.
One of our comic strips, Pajama Diaries, by Terri Libenson, was published during this past month of October, showing the following headings across four frames: "There is no doubt our society is kid-centric. But there seems to be a growing backlash. Taking a cue from Europe, families are trying a more laid-back approach to parenting. Still, much of Europe has certain advantages: better work hours, government-mandated childcare, and most of all, no Americans."
In the final panel, our American mother sees a French couple enjoying a beverage at an outdoor cafe, and asks, "Who wants to carpool to soccer? Parlez-vous anglais? Art club? Chuck E. Cheese? Bonjour?"
And the French utter, "L'Americaine stupide."
Should we be taking our cue from Europe? While the intensity levels differ, the magnitude of unemployment is the thrust of their financial system, necessitating an austerity program that led to a recession. At this writing, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and Luxembourg's unemployment is below 6 percent; Denmark's is at 7.4, the UK at 7.7, Poland at 10.6, Italy at 11.7, Lithuania at 13.3, Ireland at 14.6, Portugal at 17.6, and Spain and Greece at a whopping 26.2 and 27 percents respectively. Portugal, Spain and Greece's unemployment match the US's during The Great Depression, and the rule is that for every one person unemployed, three others are affected. Therefore, at 25 percent unemployment, everyone is affected. France's rate, close to 11 percent, is concentrated at its north and south poles, giving them the "enviable" leisure time.
With unemployment come lifestyle changes, increasing debt, more welfare assistance, food stamps, and increasing taxes for the workers who must now support the mounting needy. The cartoon mother envisions a couple strolling with their infant, without understanding that this leisure is part of a long-term social crisis; neither parent is working. Americans are also experiencing a shorter work week with a record low of under 30 hours in the low-wage industries, diminished take-home pay, fewer necessities and disappearing luxuries, reduced buying power and more businesses hurting, less productivity, and fewer customers, and on . . . "Mom" may soon not be able to send her children to play soccer or take art lessons.
Mom would also love to see government childcare implemented. Studies show that families have a greater impact than childcare centers do on a child's development, when mothers are responsive, sensitive, attentive and provide good stimulation during interactions. Families with organized routines, books, play material, and engaging experiences produce children with better social and cognitive skills. Children fare well in childhood centers that provide a supportive environment, but most US childcare centers rank between "poor" and "good." Be reminded that we are Americans who do not want our government mandating anything - the more mandates, the scanter the freedoms. "We the People" are citizens; Europeans are subjects. Mom is oblivious to the freedoms she would have to relinquish in order to live as a European. Our capitalist society has flourished where Europe's has not.
Fascism blossomed in Europe because of the high unemployment, as people seized the promise of improvement if only they could find those responsble for the country's ills. And who better to blame than the eternal scapegoats? The Jews - who number .02 percent of the world's population. We can see this materializing here - the higher unemployment rates, no promise of improvement, government spending out of control, increasing government regulations and domination, worsening divisiveness and, of course, fueled anti-Semitism.
Control comes in many forms, with the healthcare mandate being only one. Although our Founding Fathers obstructed the federal government from manipulating education standards and curriculum, the Communists found a way. Common Core Standards was created according to a Communist, classless, moneyless social order and provides a way to dominate and indoctrinate schoolchildren without parental interference.
Beginning with first grade, the textbooks are designed to produce a new generation of radicals who abhor the America we knew and work for the new Communist world. Authoritarians begin with education and immerse the children in social engineering that delivers an anti-religious propaganda and promotes an equality that discourages individuality, special talents and interests. The program was developed by the leftist Achieve, endorsed by two trade groups, and funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, along with AT&T Foundation, the Boeing Company, Carnegie Corporation of New York, Du Pont, The GE Foundation, and allies of George Soros and Peter Lewis: ACORN, ACLU, Center for American Progress, MoveOn.org, and many more. Their goal is a One World Order, with control over students during a 13-hour day to create the submissive working class of tomorrow.
Islamic revisionism was also introduced to our passive, vulnerable society, as Saudi Arabia is funding the historic revisionism in American textbooks. Islamic "scholars" have made Mary into the Muslim Mariam, teaches that Jesus is Palestinian, and Christopher Columbus is the Muslim who discovered America. Students are also being taught to memorize Qur'anic scriptures and how to make prayer rugs.
Mom can forget the soccer games, art lessons, and outings. If more parents don't wake up to Common Core's not-so-subtle damage, and contact their state's Parents against Common Core groups, then . . . L'Americaine stupide.

October 8, 2013
This year's Miss World's competitive beauty pageant held in Jakarta, Indonesia, was threatened by Muslim martinets who insisted that too much skin would offend the population. Apparently, no one could defy the devout religionists who had the right not to attend, but the bikinis were indeed replaced by sarongs, and the participants turned into obedient dhimmis.
Not long after that, there was an attack on non-Muslims at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, where at least 70 were killed, 175 injured, and 49 still missing. Apparently, when you rape, severely mutilate and slaughter in the name of religious persecution, skin is not an issue.
Around the same time, there were torchings of Christians and their churches and attacks on Egyptian Copts who failed to vote as instructed. Kirsten Powers described the scene where Christians in the Middle East and Africa were kidnapped, raped, tortured, slaughtered, and beheaded, while others were forced to flee the birthplace of Christianity.
Then there was the report of a major fire set in a supermarket, followed by the ambush and killing of 46 students who were receiving a western, non-Islamic, education in a Nigerian school. Not to be outdone, Taliban suicide bombers killed at least 85 worshippers at the ancient All Saints' Church, in Pakistan. I could go on and on - and, unfortunately, so could they.
Although never done for any other religion, the US National Park Service produced, so far, two pro-Islamic videos (denying the use of taxpayer funds) to help students assure their viewing audience that theirs is a religion of peace. The sweet young things in the film claim to have been misunderstood ever since September 11, 2001, and are themselves victims of bigotry. The mantra of victimhood, repeated time and again when Palestinians throw deadly missiles at Israeli vehicles, and when Islamists self-explode on well-trafficked streets or in busy restaurants, was also the declared mission of the Million Muslim March planned for September 11, 2013.
At this point, it might be prudent to add something about September 11, 2001, since I've been reviewing current textbooks that seem to employ a considerable amount of whitewash and historic revisionism. One book states terrorists slammed three airliners into the World Trace Center and the Pentagon, with the fourth crashing into a field in Pennsylvania, without identifying the terrorists as Islamic jihadists. Neither is the meaning of jihad provided, a critical omission. According to Justice Muhammad Taqi Usmani, a 20-year Shari'a judge on Pakistan's Supreme Court, the purpose of jihad is to establish the dominance of Islam, and that aggressive jihad is "obligatory" for Muslims until the domination of Islam is established over all other religions. If there was any misunderstanding, certainly it was cleared with Feisal Abdul Rauf's declaration that he would erect a mosque on Ground Zero.
In the film, the young women claim Muslims to be victims in America, Europe and elsewhere, pleading for their freedom of worship. They are on a mission for human, civil, and women's rights, such as espoused by their faith. Yet, the First Amendment to our Constitution permits them the freedom of worship in America. It stipulates, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." It also includes the freedom to leave or discontinue membership in a religion or religious group, called "apostasy," a fundamental part of religious freedom, covered by Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. So why the complaint?
My guess is that a good percentage of Americans came to this land for religious freedom, and found America welcoming. Plus, with such diversity already entrenched in this country and throughout Europe, how is it that only these jihadists claim intolerance? This is a device of deception by accusation and denunciation for what they could not acquire by the proverbial sword - or "weaponized" jet.
Muslims have the right to practice their religion when and as they wish, not prohibited, as they would have us believe. America imposes no jizya taxes, repressive social legislation, or political disenfranchisement as seen in the Middle East through 14 centuries. Our laws do not mandate executing apostates, or stoning or striking adulterers with 100 lashes, or torturing homosexuals, or assassinating poets, of decapitating, or enslaving women and children, or that husbands beat their wives, yet these women say they are met with hostility.
If they perceive hostility, perhaps it is because we understand jihad, and will not yield our freedoms to grant them domination. If they perceive opposition, it is because we will not desist from speaking our minds and conducting ourselves in accordance with our own culture and laws regardless of offense. We are, however, offended by their hate rallies, boycotts, flag burnings, rapes, and deaths.
When previous immigrants reached our shores, they were eager to become Americans, learn our language, manners and customs, and become one with their new hosts. When an immigrant demands obedience from the host, however, that is conquest, not assimilation.
In America, Islamists threaten others on city streets, conduct BDS rallies to intimidate and discredit (particularly on university campuses), deface synagogues, and make special demands. Accusing their adversary of the strategy they use themselves is called "projection." These students are using a passive-aggressive technique, based on a fabricated accusation, to claim they are "VICTIMS," when, in fact, they are the reverse: "SMITCIV," a word I created because we have no such war strategy in our culture.
In truth, the Muslim woman's true victimization comes at the hands of her own people. She holds a far lower legal and cultural status and is denied the dignity of choice. Although both men and women live by Shari'a law, with every aspect of their lives tightly controlled and both subject to cruel punishment for the slightest infraction of stringent rules, Shari'a applies more to women. This is evidenced by the proliferation of head scarves and full-length shrouds, which is a political, not religious, statement. These were rarely seen before September 11, 2001, but instituting the dress code announced the Islamist's arrival and presence in the host country, along with the increased mosque construction, intensified terrorism, and increased demands.
Shari'a, the basis for the totality of the Islamic way of life, provides no human rights or protection. Shari'a demoralizes with female genital mutilation before puberty, specific dress, daily prayers, even which hand to use for which purpose and when it may be chopped off. Severe corporal punishment looms for any deviation from the decrees - from leaving their homes, to attending school, to seeking medical care, to any act that a father or husband may declare a state of dishonor, and more.
Above all, Shari'a determines that her purpose is to serve men, and this is the true victimization of these women.
