A good book and the usual stupidities.
This is an interesting book.
It is a compilation of famous National Socialist speeches, mostly by Hitler, Goebbels (including the “total war” speech), and Streicher, but with a few others present as well. Contrary to System propaganda, these individuals spoke rationally, made good points, and much of what they said then applies today as well.
Typical TOO stupidity, emphasis added:
Where I come from race trumped religion, so that the northwestern europeans formed a ‘race’ in the face of invasion by mediterraneans made up of jews and italians, and blacks. The presbyterians and the irish catholics (those who had been here for some time or didn’t settle from the urban pipeline coming through NYC or Newark) sometimes gathered together against the episcopalians, either unofficially or at times self-consciously (more outside Philadelphia). Some germans had been around and blended in with the anglocelts.
The irish catholics weren’t consistent, though, and some made unholy alliances with italians (later and only where necessary) and with jews such as in Essex County, NJ
You would think the calender read 1916, not 2016.
Despite TOO imbecility, I do not believe this to be true
; more “movement” paranoia. Sometimes you just need to chalk up destructiveness to stupidity rather than to malice.
Latest anti-Trump psychotic hysteria: articles on Yahoo about how Trump is “insane” (the authors mean that literally, not figuratively), as well as analyses of “what will the Republican party do if Trump dropped out” (which he has of course shown no indication of doing), as well as dire articles suggesting Trump followers will turn violent and riot if he loses (while the only violent riots we’ve seen so far have come from anti-Trump leftist protesters).
