I listened to a "Great Courses" audio course on the founding of the National Socialist government in Germany in the early 1930's. People ask "how could an advanced country like Germany, the country of Goethe and Beethoven, produce a "monster" like Adolph Hitler?
When you follow the steps of the National Socialist consolidation of power, it is the same thing the Communists that control the Democratic Party in the US are doing today. If you want to preserve liberty, you have to be confrontational! You have to realize that football isn't the most important thing in the world.
The worst offenders are the weak sister Christian pastors who want to "go along to get along". They should read Dietrich Bonhoeffer's biography of standing up against the subordination of the Lutheran church in Germany by the National Socialists.
In that move, the National Socialists tried to assert that Jesus wasn't a Jew, and that it was a religious duty to support the "New Order". The government threatens the churches with loss of their 501c(3) status if they don't tow the line. Pastors need to fight for their religious liberty by testing this in court! More than likely, the government would do nothing, knowing that religious liberty is enshrined in the Constitution, not in the IRS.
Political Correctness is Stalinist oppression come to the United States. We have freedom of speech. Period! No exceptions! There is no "right" to no hurt feelings, no "right" to a "safe space", which is really an island of intimidation and Marxist tyranny that they want to roll out to the rest of society.
Hitler had his brown shirts, the Marxists have their "Black Lives Matter" and the "Occupy Wall Street" or whatever. It all boils down to silencing opposition and intimidation. The meek "go along to get along" will lose their liberties sure as hell if they don't develop some back bone.
