The moral of this story is that smart people must keep a strict watch on who runs for president because human nature cannot be trusted. Before Hitler, Germany was a semi-civilized nation in which Jews flourished and no one imagined any need for Jewish self defense. Then came an election with a madman running for chancellor and the true German human nature's blood thirst achieved success. Thus followed: war, mass death, mass incarcerations of the civilized citizens, and roundup of gays, Jews, gypsies, and others. It was only in the Warsaw ghetto that Jews finally realized what the German state was all about and began to arm themselves. Naturally, it was too late. In 2000, the United States elected a "compassionate conservative" liar who pushed this nation into near ruin, having pulled the wool over our eyes, just exactly like Hitler did with Germans. The current crop of Republican candidates for president all attempt to organize or stimulate discontent among the great unwashed, just exactly like Hitler did in 1933. Guns have nothing to do with it. - Lee Coleman
I found this on Facebook in reply to someone else's post. I wouldn't say it is exactly true, but there is a thread here that bears watching.
