Hitler imposed gun control on Jews. This is a matter of record. The thought of a bunch of Jews owning guns really upset him. The man was intolerant of Jews with guns.
Drudge ran a photo of Hitler and Stalin right above this headline: White House Threatens ‘Executive Orders’ on Gun Control.
Leftists in the print media went ballistic. Why, the very outrage of implying such a connection between tyranny and gun control! That guy Drudge: he is a disgrace! Read this article.
Then the Left-wing Salon published an article insisting that Hitler was not really against the private ownership of guns. Not really. It just sort of seems that way when you look at the historical record.
Did Hitler prohibit Jews from owning them? Well, yes, he did. Was this significant? In no way. In fact, it’s irrelevant. Why? Because the Jews were already a target. So, gun control had nothing to do with it. Gun control was peripheral. Ignore gun control.Drudge Links Obama and Hitler on Gun Control. Left Cries, “Foul!” by Gary North
You’d be surprised how many polices Hitler didn’t merely share with American Progressives, but actually stole from the American Left. Take Hitler the Progressive as a stating point…
This certainly includes Hitler’s love of eugenics and the forced sterilization of the Inferior Races.
The Left is committed to gun control. So was Hitler. The Left gets outraged when conservatives make this historically accurate connection.
The Left is committed to big government. So was Hitler. The Left gets outraged when conservatives make this historically accurate connection.
The two goals are connected. The Left gets outraged when conservatives make this historically accurate connection.
Conclusion: conservatives should keep reminding the voters of these connections. First, the connections are accurate. Second, when conservatives make them, this outrages the Left. There are few things more delightful than a Leftist frantically trying to deny historical facts.Drudge Links Obama and Hitler on Gun Control. Left Cries, “Foul!” by Gary North
I have some problems with conservatives, as does North.
But merely because conservatives are capable of stupid and evil tyranny, does not mean that we should then turn to more progressive flavours of stupid, evil tyranny.
Evil is evil.
Drive it all out of your life, and as much as you can lawfully can from the public square.
