Did the Political Prisoners of the Holocaust Live Politics?

Remember Martin Niemöller during the Little Sisters of the Poor case. Remember also the political prisoners of his day.

“Silence in the face of evil is evil itself: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” So did Dietrich Bonhoeffer, German Watchman, anti-Nazi, and dissident. That’s worth remembering when we consider that class of people we call political prisoners.

Political prisoners in Nazi Germany before the war

Recently, I saw a picture of a group of men in a concentration camp from back in the 1930s. When I looked at the picture, the first thing that went through my mind was “I wonder if this was a group of political prisoners that said that they did not want to get involved with politics when their country was being overthrown by a tyrant named Adolph Hitler and his Third Reich?”

I’m sure these political prisoners saw the transgressions, crimes (1 John 3:4) and usurpations, and at length, the overthrow of the German “Constitution,” by their government day by day, week by week and year by year, but made excuses as to why they did nothing.

In parallel, let’s go back to September 11, 2001, when Americans were told that they were attacked by a foreign country and compare the events of today, to that of Adolph Hitler’s Nazi Germany during the 1930s.

Bush family complicity with the Nazis

First, let’s take a look at an article published at the Guardian titled, “How Bush’s Grandfather Helped Hitler’s Rise to Power.”

George Bush’s grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush was indicted in 1942 Under Trading with the Enemy Act. Prescott was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.

The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.

His business dealings, which continued until his company’s assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act, has led more than 60 years later to a civil action for damages being brought in Germany against the Bush family by two former slave labourers at Auschwitz and to a hum of pre-election controversy.

The evidence has also prompted one former US Nazi war crimes prosecutor to argue that the late senator’s actions should have been grounds for prosecution for giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

Keep in mind during that war, 405,399 American men fought, bled and died fighting against the Germans that the Bushes were aiding and abetting (Luke 22:48).

On September 11, 2001, Gary Hart said that there was a chance that George W. Bush will use the disaster to carry out a New World Order that his father had called for.

The Reichstag Fire

The Reichstag Fire. Adolf Hitler had his minions set it in an almost prototypical false flag pseudo-operation. He later took political prisoners. That kind of provocation is coming to America.

Firemen work on the burning Reichstag. Item from Record Group 208: Records of the Office of War Information, 1926 – 1951. Photographer unknown.

Hitler’s first move was that of the Reichstag fire, which was when the German parliamentary building went up in flames. Hitler harnessed the story to simply seize power over the German government.

History teaches us that the Nazis were the responsible party for setting the fire in order to accuse their political opposition to start war.

“This is a God-given signal,” Hitler told von Papen when they arrived on the scene. “If this fire, as I believe, is the work of the Communists, then we must crush out this murderous pest with an iron fist.”

A few hours later, on February 28, Hindenburg invoked Article 48 and the cabinet drew up the “Decree of the Reich President for the Protection of the People and State.”

The act abolished freedom of speech, assembly, privacy and the press; legalized phone tapping and interception of correspondence; and suspended the autonomy of federated states, like Bavaria. Does this sound familiar Americans? Can we say National Security Agency.

That night around 4,000 of Hitler’s political opponents were arrested, imprisoned and tortured by the SA (Hitler’s assault division). Many were detained indefinitely after the fire. Their empty seats left the Nazis largely free to do as they wished.

It took Adolph Hitler just 6 years to overthrow the German Constitution and aggrandize all power unto himself.

From the self-inflicted Reichstag fire came the Enabling Act. On March 23, the Reichstag passed the Enabling Act, the partner piece of legislation to the February 28 Decree for the Protection of People and State. The Enabling Act assigned all legislative power to Hitler and his ministers, thus securing their ability to control the political apparatus.

The Manhattan attacks

Office workers jump from the World Trade Center towers, September 11, 2001. Did a lone wolf group pull this off? Or is this an example of the threat of the religion of many wolves called Islam? Some say it's a false-flag pseudo-op, and political prisoners will soon follow.

Office workers prefer death by falling to death by fire on September 11, 2001.

After September 11, 2001, George W. Bush and his administration installed The Patriot Act, which by the way, was not read by one of the 535 members of Congress, and they passed it at 3:30 am.

Then, President Bush sought out a war with Iraq, attacking a country, which had nothing to do with the two towers being leveled in New York City.

Oh yes, and don’t forget that Vice President Dick Cheney, who was the CEO of the company Halliburton, profited $39.5 billion off of the Iraq War.

After the Reichstag fire, Germany installed Fatherland Security. After September 11, 2001, George W. Bush installed Homeland Security.

Friends, look at the bureaucracies that have been created since September 11, 2001.

Nobody has attacked the American people and their God-given rights more than this government has. A foreign government could not have dreamed of doing the things that this American government has done to Americans since September 11, 2001.

The parallels

Propaganda minister Josef Goebbels was in full force deceiving the people, with comments like “Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play,” all the while knowing that it was designed to control the German people to submit to the Third Reich.

What did theses political prisoners do while knowing they were being lied to? Absolutely nothing! Sound familiar?

“The CIA owns everyone of any significance in the major media.” –William Colby, former CIA Director

“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.” –William Casey, CIA Director

“Deception is a state of mind and the mind of the state.” –James Angelton, Head of the CIA Counter Intelligence

Maybe that is why President Harry Truman said, “I never would have agreed to the formulation of the Central Intelligence Agency back in forty-seven, if I had known it would become the American Gestapo.”

What of the promises given by the tyrant Adolph Hitler only to find out that they were nothing but fabrications and lies, and yet, these political prisoners did nothing. They said, “Things will just take care of themselves.”

I’m sure these political prisoners saw the Nazis targeting and purging certain ethnic groups and attempting to divide them against one another (Mark 3:25), and did nothing.

When the tyrant was leading them to war against the political opposition that he created, the political prisoners said that they were just too busy to get involved with politics.

Easy to deceive

The apathetic non-political participants then saw, I’m sure, the disarmament of the gun owners, namely the dissidents that were not compliant with Hitler’s tyrannical and murderous Reich. The political prisoners, of course, were still just too busy to get involved with politics and didn’t want to risk the opposition or repercussions they might face if they stood up and spoke out.

SS Officer and war criminal Herman Going said,

Naturally, the common people don’t want war … but after all it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country.

Sound familiar, America?

In short, they had to have seen with both eyes open as to what was coming. Yet, they refused to deal with the lawless and tyrannical acts of such a monster as Adolph Hitler and his SS officers, and these political prisoners stood back and did nothing when they had the time to do so.

Misplacement of faith

Look how Adolph Hitler was perceived by the German people. Louise Solmitz, a Hamburg school teacher in 1932, said of Adolf Hitler:

“How many look up to him with touching faith as their helper, their savior, their deliverer from unbearable stress.” (2 Corinthians 11:14)

Behind closed doors, Adolph Hitler was responsible, with the use of his brown shirts, for creating the crimes and then playing the problem solver. Sound familiar, America?

Adolph Hitler said,

“Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death.”

Apparently, these political prisoners did not take the time to educate themselves. All they had to do was look up the word “terrorism” in the Oxford English Dictionary to know who was responsible for these acts of terror.

Terrorism was originally defined in the Oxford English Dictionary as “Government by intimidation.”

Father Niemöller

I’m sure you’ve heard of the famous quote by Pastor Martin Neimöller who, after the Holocaust, blamed the evangelical church for allowing Adolph Hitler and his rise to power.

Martin said,

First, they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Well, by the looks of it, in the end, their country being toppled, millions of their own being murdered through war without, and purging within, they still refused to deal with the tyrant. Other countries had to bring him and his countrymen to justice.

They did live politics

The fact of the matter is, regardless if they wanted to admit it or not, they did, in fact, live politics. When they ended up in the camps, they were known as political prisoners. At that point, there was nothing they could do except wait and die at the hands of those that they should have lawfully dealt with when they had the opportunity to do so.

How did that work out for them? It didn’t work out for them. It worked out for the enemies within by adding strength to tyranny and by the complete and total surrender of the people, through their lack of action, to the tyrannical Nazi reign, which left them helpless, hopeless, and at length, destroyed (Leviticus 26:14-46).

It has been rightly stated that there are none so deaf as those that will not hear (Matthew 13:15-17).

The summation goes as follows: The history of men that do not learn from history?

Men turn from the living God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of the Lord Jesus Christ and give allegiance to corrupt and fallen man.

At length, the people and the country are destroyed only to return back to the God that they should not have forsaken in the first place.


Editor’s note:

Your editor remembers watching live images of the crash of the second airliner into WTC 2 (South Tower). Shortly thereafter, someone released raw footage from a WABC-TV 7 camera crew. That crew captured the crash of the first airliner into WTC 1 (North Tower). Furthermore, your editor interviewed witnesses to the two airliners hitting the towers, and their flight from Lower Manhattan.

In short, we have no reason to doubt that the attacks on September 11 did in fact take place. Furthermore we have little reason to doubt that Muslim activists abroad commissioned the attacks. The Koran plainly and clearly says: “Fight and slay the infidels wheresoever ye find them.” Surah 9:5. Osama bin Laden boasted of having brought the World Trade Center down in the immediate aftermath.

Having said that, we must observe that George W. Bush took measures inimical to liberty. He also ignored certain other measures that could have made America much harder to strike again. A layered defense works best in such a case. Where, then, were the organized industrial-district militias to protect factories, refineries, and the like? Your editor traveled through an industrial district in Elizabeth, New Jersey. No such militia ever organized themselves. The authorities left that district wide-open to a fresh attack. Fortunately, and perhaps tellingly, no such attack ever came.

In sum: we have insufficient evidence that the government staged the September 11 attacks. (The sudden collapse of WTC 7 could have resulted from the shocks of the collapses of WTC 1 and 2.) But Mr. Dean presents good evidence that the government’s response parallels that of Hitler to the Reichstag Fire. We also know Bush could have reacted differently, but did not.

    I may not be a big fan of the Bushes, but this is quite frankly a load of crock if you ask me. The Reichstag Fire was actually orchestrated by the Nazis, and to a lesser extent the Communist (there was definitely one confirmed Communist involved in setting the fire, a deranged guy named Marinus van der Lubbe), while Bush during the planning process of 9/11 was governor of Texas, not to mention had barely even been in the presidency during that time, not much time for him to make any contacts with Osama bin Ladin, let alone tell him to do that. That’s all on Osama bin Ladin and al Qaeda. The worst you might say about Bush during that time is that he might have been opportunistic. I wouldn’t even claim that the likes of Bill Clinton tried to use the various terror attacks by al Qaeda to bring about a Reichstag Fire to bring about his communist new order, and believe me, considering he failed to have bin Ladin assassinated despite being given multiple opportunities to do so, and continued letting known terrorists go about the streets doing more damage, that would have been a bit more apt comparison. And personally, I think what Bush did was ultimately necessary, and certainly far closer to a step in the right direction than how Bill Clinton handled, say, the USS Cole Bombings, the 1993 World Trade Center bombings, and the like.

    And as far as locking various prisoners up, as I pointed out earlier, many of those “prisoners” were guys who actually DID have a lot of involvement in 9/11. If anything, it’s a very STUPID idea to try and, as Obama put it, do civilian courts for people like them. And believe me, when we tried exactly the type of thing Obama suggested, that actually made the situation worse. Just ask Blocking the Path to 9/11.

    Finally, I think the fact that Osama bin Ladin actually had contacts within Iraq Intelligence since 1995 and had at least friendly contacts should have been sufficient enough evidence that Iraq definitely had some blood on their hands regarding 9/11.

    And quite frankly, unless you think liberty should be done akin to the French Revolution where people killed each other for a sick laugh, not even NEEDING a reason to do so, I get irritated at comparisons between the Reichstag Fire and this. In fact, I’m pretty sure even Dietrich Bonhoffer would have been disgusted with the comparison, and if anything would have compared al Qaeda to the Nazis, not Bush.

    • Terry A. Hurlbut says:

      “The views expressed by any contributor are his own and do not necessarily represent the editorial position of CNAV.” Having said that, you might want to check Bradlee Dean’s references. He always supplies plenty, in case you missed it.

      Also, read my note at the bottom. I never accepted the false-flag theory. But chiefs of state often have two ways to respond to a real-flag operation. One of those ways is friendly to liberty and the other one isn’t. Not quite, anyway.
