After listening to Obongo's propaganda minister, Herr Gibbs, for the past few days I find myself wondering when the lying son of a bitch will finally click his heels, snap to attention, toss his right arm up in the air and scream, "Jawohl Mein Führer!"
And while I wonder about Nazis lurking in Democratic cupboards, read some of these quotes from real Nazis, like Hitler's propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels:
And now from Herr Hitler himself:
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
“The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly - it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over”
“Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.”
“Whoever can conquer the street will one day conquer the state, for every form of power politics and any dictatorship-run state has its roots in the street.”"It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion."
"How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think. "
"If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed."
"The broad masses of a population are more amenable to the appeal of rhetoric than to any other force."
"The great masses of the people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one."
The great strength of the totalitarian state is that it forces those who fear it to imitate it.
What good fortune for governments that the people do not think.
Again I ask, who are the Nazis?
