The mainstream media’s “Hitler – Nazi” diversion
Recent NZ protests have seen fringe elements comparing Jacinda Ardern and her Labour government to Nazis. Even though such comparisons are a very small part of the protests the mainstream media highlight them. Because it gives media what they yearn for, and that is an opportunity to discredit the protests.
Media rightly point out that Hitler killed millions of people, and Jacinda Ardern hasn’t killed any, so therefore such comparisons are ludicrous. This is a deceitful diversion. Today socialists implement their tyranny using sophisticated methods that provide far better results then murdering people by the tens of millions.
[Not to say that they will not murder people in the future. Saul Alinsky wrote the instruction manual on how to implement modern day socialist tyranny. Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama identified Alinsky as a major influence. No doubt Jacinda Ardern is familiar with his work. After all, she trained at the International Union of Socialist Youth for more than ten years.
An undercover FBI operative recorded Alinsky disciple Bill Ayers, (a mentor of Barack Obama and friend of Hilary Clinton) as stating that after socialists have full control in the US, they will most likely have to build camps to hold and eventually kill around 25 million people. Those holdouts who would not ever surrender to otherwise universally accepted socialist brainwashing.]
Hitler led the National Socialist Worker’s Party. He didn’t like the German communists mainly because they were globalists rather than nationalists. So he killed them and other groups, even those to his right, because like all tyrants, he wanted to be the only game in town. For Nazi tyranny to work, all other belief groups had to be neutralised. There could only be the Nazi party.
This exclusion of all other ideas is the key issue. No matter the historical tyrant, Hitler, Stalin or Mao, they were all fixated on two things- a big powerful govt and using it to crush dissent. No “wrong think” permitted. Not anywhere. Not ever.
The obvious implication of the protesters’ signs associating Jacinda with Hitler is not that she is Hitler, but that we should be warned by history. Sure, given Ardern is a socialist the more accurate association should be with mass murderers Stalin or Mao or Castro or Pol Pot, but really it doesn’t matter too much. Tyranny is tyranny, and the warning is still perfectly valid.
Look out for those leaders who would limit diversity of belief, especially political belief. You never know what they can become. Hugo Chavez began as a hero of democracy. Today Venezuela is in economic and political chaos, and left wing death squads are killing dissenters in their homes.
Stalin killed off the Kulaks. Mao killed off what he called the “right thinkers”. Because both of these tyrants wanted no other political or belief system challenging their own. The same crushing of dissent is what is happening in New Zealand today. Its just being carried out by more modern and sophisticated means. Mainly social exclusion.
Its why you’re reading this article on a fringe web site. Its why this writer and a hundred other like New Zealanders were de-platformed from Twitter (at govt request). Its why Michael Basset was fired from the NZ Herald and Dr Don Brash banned from Massey University. Its why John Banks and Peter Williams were fired from Radio Magic. Its why a citizen was door knocked by knuckle dragging SIS agents because she made a harmless joke on Twitter about Helen Clark. Its why the so called “opposition” parties, so desperately fearful of media criticism, make themselves pretty much the same as the Labour party.
Today the NZ Herald runs a piece by David Fisher criticising another journalist for asking “unapproved” questions of the PM. NZ’s other main newspaper runs an article by Amy Ridout attempting to discredit Sue Grey, a lawyer who sees our human rights under attack. Journalism is meant to be about holding the powerful to account and standing up for the weak and powerless. Fisher and Ridout are doing the opposite.
The mainstream media pours scorn on every voice opposing the Ardern govt. They constantly badger the National Party to be more like Labour. They try hard to discredit every anti-govt demonstration. Such actions are very worrying to those of us who know that historically, the first harbinger of tyranny is a partisan media.
Hitler comparisons are not about what the country is today, but an attempt to warn NZ about the road we are going down under the Ardern govt and its cravenly complicit and corrupted media apparatchiks.
