History is almost always best understood in retrospect. Only on rare occasion are we able to see events and immediately identify them as historical milestones. Most of these are harbingers of trouble in the making.
On the night of November 9th and 10th, 1938, following orders from their Fuhrer Adolph Hitler, Germany’s Nazis (who had steadily moved in a heretofore deliberate but low-key manner against the Jews) removed their masks and took their attacks to the streets. Under what had become the “Law of the land,” they burned the Jews’ synagogues, shops, and homes. They rounded up 30,000 Jewish citizens and put them in “legally maintained” death camps. Germany’s Nazis brushed aside all pretense of being civilized people who could be dealt with rationally. This savage attack is called Kristallnacht, or the Night of Broken Glass.
After their Kristallnacht, the Nazis stepped up their attacks on Jews and anyone else they hated. No amount of “worldwide condemnation” swayed them in the slightest.
There was not a peep from Germany’s media, which by that time had either joined the Nazis, become frozen in fear, or had been murdered for opposing them.
The Nazi’s Kristallnacht led to the murder of those whose continued existence was deemed not cost-effective. Anyone with a physical or mental defect was sent to a camp by completely legal “Death Panels.” Although Hitler was given power by a bare plurality in 1933, after Kristallnacht, anyone who wasn’t with them was an enemy who had to be destroyed; no one but Nazis had any rights. Hitler ran the courts, had the guns, and did everything according to “the law of the land.” He was answerable to no one because all his moves were “legal.”
On November 19, 2013, Americans experienced our “Night of Broken Glass” when the Democrats in the Senate decided that laws and procedures in place for hundreds of years are not as important as fulfilling the wishes of their Fuhrer. Their changes to our Senate’s rules means the Democrats have committed America’s Kristallnacht. They have cleared the way to use “the law of the land” to destroy our Constitution, which is the only barrier between us and 1938 Germany.
To ensure the success of his eugenic, fake “healthcare” program, Barack Obama can now follow the “law of the land” and thin us out by cutting off life support for the weakest and most vulnerable among us. He can import millions of new Democrat voters to take the place of “legally” eliminated Americans. They will vote to ensure that their own parasitical presence in America becomes “the law of the land” forever. America’s Fuhrer can now use Hitler-like fiats to “LEGALLY” ascend to the position of dictator.
There are, of course, those who will laugh at this notion. But when you hear their cackling, ask them who has their allegiance– the Constitution or Barack Obama. The answer will speak volumes.
