Even this young Californian now knows the score:

An excerpt below from his article "Hitler was a liberal"

When liberals are not trying to pass Nazism off as "fascism," they are attempting to pass it off as an extreme form of "conservatism" and an inexorable byproduct of Christianity. In 2003, on his show ''Scarborough Country,'' former congressman and current MSNBC personality Joe Scarborough shed light on a college textbook that grouped Rush Limbaugh and Ronald Reagan with Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini as "conservatives." Now how exactly could Hitler, a man who was a strong supporter of social welfare programs, gun control, animal rights, government funding for the arts, and bans against smoking in public get away with being called a "conservative"?

The reason is simple. Liberals are such shameless liars and persistent revisionists that they will malign anyone they disagree with as Hitleresque, from the spastic Iraq war protestors comparing George W. Bush to Hitler to Sen. Dick Durbin comparing American troops to "Nazis." Perhaps this is on account of the equivalence of their deep-seated rejection of God to Hitler's militant rejection of God, which led to one of the ugliest mass murders in human history. But wait a minute, wasn't Hitler a Christian also?

Well, if being a Christian means claiming the role of God for one's self and coercing the subjects of one's rule to shake off their beliefs in Christ and pledge a new allegiance to the Third Reich, then perhaps Hitler was a Christian. But this certainly doesn't explain why the Nazis harassed, arrested, tortured, and murdered Christian clergymen for espousing their beliefs, or for that matter why during the first five years of the Nazis' rule a majority of concentration camp inmates were Christians, Jews being late arrivals for the most part, nor does it explain why on November 4, 1936, the Nazis ordered the removal of crucifixes from schools in the Oldenburg area on account of the notion that they were "symbols of superstition."

To set the record straight: Hitler was not a Christian, the Nazis were not Christians, Nazi Germany was not a Christian theocracy. It was a militant secularist, socialist regime that championed the sovereignty of man rather than the sovereignty of God. In February 1937, Hanns Kerrl, minister of religion in the Third Reich said: "The question of the divinity of Christ is ridiculous and inessential. A new answer has arisen as to what Christ and Christianity are: Adolph Hitler." University Nazis in Keil wrote in 1935: "We Germans are heathens and want no more Jewish religion in our Germany. We no longer believe in the Holy Ghost; we believe in the Holy Blood." Baldur von Schirach, head of the Hitler Youth, before World War II said, "Our religion is Germany." In fact, grace before meals given to poor children by the Nazi Welfare Committee ended "For this food, my Fuehrer, my thanks I render." Maybe I'm just confused, but I can't precisely recall Jesus ever taking on the name of "Fuehrer" but then maybe I haven't reading my college textbooks closely enough....

Muslim fanatic really loves the West: "A fanatical Muslim who ranted against Britain has moved back here from Pakistan — to live on benefits. Hate-filled Zeeshan Siddiqui, 26, who once called London an “organ of the devil”, is enjoying life in a suburb of the capital. The Sun tracked down Siddiqui to a quiet, tree-lined road in Heston, West London, following his release from custody by Pakistani police who were probing suspected terror links. In the past he has said he wants to be an Islamic martyr, called for all non-Muslims to be killed and declared his contempt for the UK. Yet he is happy to sponge off our taxpayers to the tune of 52.60 pounds a week in Jobseekers Allowance. Siddiqui slipped back into Britain in January after eight months in prison in Peshawar.

House of Lords defends English liberties again: "Britain's House of Lords has voted for identity cards to be voluntary, defying Prime Minister Tony Blair and the House of Commons on an issue Blair says is key to combating terrorism. The unelected Lords voted 227-166 against the compromise plan approved by the lower house last month. After Blair backed down on making identification cards mandatory for all residents of Britain, the Commons backed a proposal to require them for British citizens applying for passports. Rebels in Blair's Labour Party had opposed making the cards mandatory, but critics said that despite the changes, the ID cards were still being forced on the public. Blair says the cards are crucial to the fight against terrorism and fraud. Opponents say they are likely to be ineffective and could violate civil liberties.

Dose of sanity angers French Left: "Moves to curb France’s chronically high youth unemployment are at the centre of a trial of strength today between public service unions and students, who have called demonstrations across the country, and Dominique de Villepin, the embattled Prime Minister.... The CPE, just passed by parliament, will allow employers to hire under-26-year-olds for a two-year period that can be terminated at any time. Youth unemployment, at 23 per cent, is widely blamed on protective labour laws that put off employers. Jobless rates of up to 50 per cent on immigrant housing estates helped to fuel last autumn’s riots. The CPE is opposed by a majority of the young and the Left, who fear employers will use it to exploit younger workers. Business leaders have given it half-hearted support, demanding a full-scale revamp of labour laws. The battle over the CPE has rallied the demoralised Socialist opposition and unions to resist what they depict as M de Villepin’s drive towards “Anglo-Saxon-style” deregulation."

Why Africa is poor: "The rot starts with government, but it afflicts the entire society. There's no point investing in a business because the government will not protect you against thieves. (So you might as well become a thief yourself.) There's no point in paying your phone bill because no court can make you pay. (So there's no point being a phone company.) There's no point setting up an import business because the customs officers will be the ones to benefit. (So the customs office is underfunded and looks even harder for bribes.) There's no point getting an education because jobs are not handed out on merit. (And in any case, you can't borrow money for school fees because the bank can't collect on the loan.)"

Practically all policies advocated by the Left create poverty. Leftists get the government to waste vast slabs of the country's labour-force on bureaucracy and paperwork and so load the burden of providing most useful goods and services onto fewer and fewer people. So fewer useful goods and services are produced to go around. That is no accident. The Left love the poor. The Left need the poor so that they can feel good by patronizing and "helping" them. So they do their best to create as many poor people as possible.

The Big Lie of the late 20th century was that Nazism was Rightist. It was in fact typical of the Leftism of its day. It was only to the Right of Stalin's Communism. The very word "Nazi" is a German abbreviation for "National Socialist" (Nationalsozialistisch)
