Subject: Letter to the editor - Very interesting!


 On June 7, 1995, the Washington Times printed a letter to the editor from a
 man named Thomas Colton Ruthford in which he described the Nazis and how
 Hitler came to power and then abused that power. In light of current events,
 this letter could be quite chilling. There are those who say that "Those who
 will not learn from history are doomed to repeat it," but I would like to
 modify that and say that, "The only lesson we learn from history is that we
 don't learn from history."
Letter to the Editor
 6/7/95 - Arlington, Washington Times
 During the past several months in the American press, the Democrats have
 frequently denounced the Republicans as Nazis due to their attempts to
 control runaway federal spending. How very ironic. I remember the Nazis. Let
 me share a little about them and recall some of their exploits.
 First of all, "Nazi" was gutter slang for the verb "to nationalize". The
 Bider-Mienhoff gang gave themselves this moniker during their early
 struggles. The official title of the Nazi Party was "The National Socialist
 Workers Party of Germany". Hitler and the Brownshirts advocated the
 nationalization of education, health care, transportation, national
 resources, manufacturing, distribution and law enforcement.
 Hitler came to power by turning the working class, unemployed, and academic
 elite against the conservative republic. After der fuhrer's election ceased
 being a political conspiracy and was transformed into a fashionable social
 phenomenon, party membership was especially popular with educators,
 bureaucrats, and the press. Being a Nazi was politically correct. They
 called themselves "The Children of the New Age of World Order" and looked
 down their noses at everyone else. As Hitler accrued more power, he referred
 to his critics as "The Dark Forces of Anarchy and Hatred". Anyone who
 questioned Nazi high-handedness in the German press was branded a
 "Conservative Reactionary". Joseph Goebbels, minister of communications,
 proclaimed a "New World Order".
 The Nazi reign of terror began with false news reports on the Jews,
 Bohemians and Gypses who were said to be arming themselves to overthrow the
 "New World Order" and Hitler demanded that all good people register their
 guns so that they wouldn't fall into the hands of "terrorists and madmen".
 Right wing fanatics of the "Old Order" who protested firearms registration
 were arrested by the S.S. and put in jail for "fomenting hatred against the
 Government of the German people".
 Then the Reichstag (government building) was blown up and Hitler ram-rodded
 an "Emergency Anti-Terrorist Act" through Parliament that gave the Gestapo
 extraordinary powers. The leader then declared that for the well-being of
 the German people, all private firearms were to be confiscated by the
 Gestapo and the Wermotten (federal law enforcement and military). German
 citizens who refused to surrender their guns when the "jack-boots" (Gestapo)
 came calling, were murdered in their homes. By the way, the Gestapo were the
 federal marshals' service of the Third Reich. The S.W.A.T. team was invented
 and perfected by the Gestapo to break into the homes of the enemies of the
 German people.
 When the Policia Bewakken, or local police, refused to take away guns from
 townsfolk, they themselves were disarmed and dragged out into the street and
 shot to death by the S.A. and the S.S. Those were Nazi versions of the
 B.A.T.F. and the F.B.I. When several local ministers spoke out against these
 atrocities, they were imprisoned and never seen again.
 The Gestapo began to confiscate and seize the homes, businesses, bank
 accounts, and personal belongings of wealthy conservative citizens who had
 prospered in the old Republic. Pamphleteers who urged revolt against the
 Nazis were shot on site by national law enforcement and the military.
 Gypsies and Jews were detained and sent to labor camps. Mountain roads
 throughout central Europe were closed to prevent the escape of fugitives
 into the wilderness, and to prevent the movement and concealment of partisan
 resistance fighters.
 Public schools rewrote history and Hitler youth groups taught the children
 to report their parents to their teachers for anti-Nazi remarks. Such
 parents disappeared. Pagan animism became the state religion of the Third
 Reich and Christians were widely condemned as "right wing fanatics".
 Millions of books were burned first and then people. Millions of them burned
 in huge ovens after they were first gassed to death. Unmarried women were
 paid large sums of money to have babies out of wedlock and then given medals
 for it. Evil was declared as being good, and good was condemned as being
 evil. World Order was coming and the German people were going to be the
 Yes, indeed, I remember the Nazis and they weren't Republicans, or "right
 wing", or "patriots" or "militias". They were Socialist monsters.
