    OK. I admit it. I'm really having some schadenfreude fun seeing domestic terrorists being put on no-fly lists and being arrested in airports. Talk about having what goes around come back around. Wish I was a fly on the wall.

    NAZI PROPAGANDA AND CENSORSHIP

    BeauBeau said it all: Is this prosocial or antisocial. Remember that context is absolutely and completely and critically paramount

    Once they succeeded in ending democracy and turning Germany into a one-party dictatorship, the Nazis orchestrated a massive propaganda campaign to win the loyalty and cooperation of Germans. The Nazi Propaganda Ministry, directed by Dr. Joseph Goebbels, took control of all forms of communication in Germany: newspapers, magazines, books, public meetings, and rallies, art, music, movies, and radio. Viewpoints in any way threatening to Nazi beliefs or to the regime were censored or eliminated from all media.

    During the spring of 1933, Nazi student organizations, professors, and librarians made up long lists of books they thought should not be read by Germans. Then, on the night of May 10, 1933, Nazis raided libraries and bookstores across Germany. They marched by torchlight in nighttime parades, sang chants, and threw books into huge bonfires. On that night more than 25,000 books were burned. Some were works of Jewish writers, including Albert Einstein and Sigmund Freud. Most of the books were by non-Jewish writers, including such famous Americans as Jack London, Ernest Hemingway, and Upton Sinclair, whose ideas the Nazis viewed as different from their own and therefore not to be read.

    The Nazi censors also burned the books of Helen Keller, who had overcome her deafness and blindness to become a respected writer; told of the book burnings, she responded: "Tyranny cannot defeat the power of ideas." Hundreds of thousands of people in the United States protested the book burnings, a clear violation of freedom of speech, in public rallies in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and St. Louis.

    Schools also played an important role in spreading Nazi ideas. While some books were removed from classrooms by censors, other textbooks, newly written, were brought in to teach students blind obedience to the party, love for Hitler, and antisemitism. After-school meetings of the Hitler Youth and the League of German Girls trained children to be faithful to the Nazi Party. In school and out, young people celebrated such occasions as Adolf Hitler's birthday and the anniversary of his taking power.

    Joseph Goebbels disrupts premiere of film
    In Berlin, Joseph Goebbels, one of Adolf Hitler’s top deputies, and Storm Troopers (SA) disrupt the premiere of "All Quiet on the Western Front," a film based on the novel of the same title by Erich Maria Remarque. Nazi protestors throw smoke bombs and sneezing powder to halt the film. Members of the audience who protest the disruption are beaten. The novel had always been unpopular with the Nazis, who believed that its depiction of the cruelty and absurdity of war was "un-German." Ultimately, the film will be banned. Remarque will emigrate to Switzerland in 1931, and the Nazis, after coming to power, will revoke his German citizenship in 1938.

    March 13, 1933
    Joseph Goebbels heads Reich Propaganda Ministry
    Joseph Goebbels, one of Adolf Hitler's most trusted associates, is appointed to head the Reich Ministry for Popular Enlightenment and Propaganda. This agency controls the writing and broadcast of all media (newspapers, radio programs, and movies) as well as public entertainment and cultural programs (theater, art, and music). Goebbels integrates Nazi racism and ideas into the media.

    May 10, 1933
    Joseph Goebbels speaks at book burning in Berlin
    Forty thousand people gather to hear German propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels speak in Berlin's Opera Square. Goebbels condemns works written by Jews, liberals, leftists, pacifists, foreigners, and others as "un-German." Nazi students begin burning books. Libraries across Germany are purged of "censored" books. Goebbels proclaims the "cleansing of the German spirit."

    hey was that Joe Rogan out there ...

    Only leftists for the most part have been shot and helicopter firebombed, but if those priveleged white guys keep it up, they are heading for a really bad end ... en masse. This should be posted on PA as a public service announcement. I saw that tough guy militant TargetT, is back to posting. Perhaps he and his dog headed in the other direction when the fun started.

    If that isn't fascism in motion I really don't know what is. Actually, governments have to play their part. Trump's government is doing exactly that. As Aianawa posted some time back: "We will not get away with it!" Sung to the tune:

    Inspired by DT, I responded to a phishing email that I have been getting repeatedly from different source:

    Kindly pass this on to your fellow scammers:

    If you send this to me one more time I will find you. I have a particular set of skills … you will not like the consequences. I’ll give you a hint … I hold government security clearances through the FBI and Homeland security.

    Lol. (hope no-one gets hurt)


    So, let me get this straight. The same folks who scream and yell that there is no evolution and they didn't come from monkeys, spread their urine and feces in our Nation's Capitol.

    Hmmmmm.......

    Here's a kinda weird thing.

    Throughout my life the Vice Presidency has not been seen as a powerful office. Potentially, if something happens to the President. Otherwise, it's been more of a figurehead/ceremonial type of role.

    We've now reached a time where the Vice Presidency is going to be very powerful. Kamala is the determinant of the majority in the Senate as well as being the tie-breaking vote.

    Powerful indeed.

    It's an appropriate irony for the circumstances.
