Someone recently mentioned the Spanish Flu resulted in the Nazi Party.
The Spanish Flu was a tad early to have much of an effect on the rise of the Nazi Party. Rather, the Spanish Flu did a lot to help end WW I, albeit at an expense of lives far exceeding that of the war itself.
World War I ran from July 28 through November 11, 1918, and was one of the deadliest conflicts in history, with an estimated 9 million combatant deaths and 13 million civilian deaths as a direct result of the war.
Secondary genocides and the related 1918 influenza pandemic caused another 17–100 million deaths worldwide.
The Spanish Flu pandemic raged from Feb 1918 through April 1920.
While the Nazi Party was formed in 1920, and Adolph Hitler became Führer in 1921, it wasn’t until Hitler was released from prison on Dec 20, 1924, and convinced the Bavarian authorities to lift the ban on the NSDAP on February 16, 1925 that the party began gaining steam. The Nazi Party was formally refounded on 26 February 1925.
Even so, they didn’t start gaining seats until 1930, but still never had enough seats to control Germany until after the Reichstag fire on 27 February 1933 gave Hitler a pretext for suppressing his political opponents. The following day he persuaded the Reich’s President Paul von Hindenburg to issue the Reichstag Fire Decree, which suspended most civil liberties. The NSDAP won the parliamentary election on 5 March 1933 with 43.9 percent of votes, but failed to win an absolute majority.
THEN, hundreds of thousands of new members joined the party for opportunistic reasons, most of them civil servants and white-collar workers.
Here’s what happened next:
On 23 March, the parliament passed the Enabling Act of 1933, which gave the cabinet the right to enact laws without the consent of parliament. In effect, this gave Hitler dictatorial powers. Now possessing virtually absolute power, the Nazis established totalitarian control as they abolished labour unions and other political parties and imprisoned their political opponents, first at wilde Lager, improvised camps, then in concentration camps. Nazi Germany had been established.
We are at PRECISELY the same point in our own history, with Demoncraps all but burning the Constitution at the stake, and the masses — ignorant of history — keep electing Demoncraps back into power.
For the love of God! Please Stop!
It’s the Demoncraps who want a strong federal government forcing their ideologies on all Americans the same as Germany’s Führer und Reichskanzler did from July 1934 until its defeat during World War II.
In the meantime, the U.S. stock market crash of 1929 had a much more profound effect, causing other global markets to crash, including Germany’s, which resulted in citizens becoming desperate for “rescue,” hence their joining the party by the hundreds of thousands in 1933.
The Demoncraps are attempting to do the same. They routinely ignore the Constitution, even flagrantly violating it. Here in Colorado, the trifecta of Demoncrap Governor, Demoncrap Senate and Demoncrap House resulted in more than 400 new laws being shoved throughout without opposition, much less consideration. Many of those laws violated both our State Constitution as well as our United States Constitution. The Demoncraps just didn’t care. The same thing has been occurring in Virginia, and many other states held by a trifecta of Demoncrap power.
U.S. House Demoncraps continue to push bills which flagrantly violate the U.S. Constitution. They require Amendments, but knowing they cannot achieve the 2/3 and 3/4 majorities required for Amendments or wait the requisite years, they push them through as laws, hoping people won’t notice Demoncrap laws violate the Constitution and are therefore null and void. Instead, they shove the burden, not to mention the massive expense, of fighting these un-Constitutional laws onto We the People, thereby committing “Insurrection by Legislative Over-Burdening.”
THAT shit has GOT to stop.
IF Demoncraps are allowed to gain the Presidency, the Senate and the House of Representatives, they WILL do the same as Nazi Germany, passing their own “Enabling Act” that will, not by Amendment, but by a simple, un-Constitutional majority, dismantle our Constitution and replace it with the Demoncrap’s socialist, anti-God, and communist agendas.
We the People CANNOT allow this to happen! The MOMENT it does, we will no longer be the people of a nation, but SLAVES to the Demoncrap Elitists, under their thumbs — UNDER THEIR RULE.
If you enjoy your freedom in ANY form, DO NOT vote Demoncrap at ANY level. They have NO integrity, NO conscience, ZERO respect for the masses they keep enslaved with high taxes and empty promises and ABSOLUTELY ZERO regard for the Constitution for the United States of America which establishes both law and order and the means to keep it while simultaneously limiting government, recognizing and protecting all our God-given rights and freedoms.
