Krieger Warns "Nazi Fears & 'Hate Speech' Hysteria Are Being Amplified To Attack Civil Liberties"

Authored by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

It doesn’t take courage to denounce Nazism. Moreover, it appears many of the people incessantly proclaiming how anti-Nazi they are, happen to be the same folks who have the most to answer for when it comes to all sorts of transgressions against the world over the past couple of decades.

That said, I’ll give my my quick two cents on the Nazi, white supremacist hysteria currently being amplified by the corporate media.

The general proclivity to obsess about how one’s group, whether it be a nation, political tribe, or race/religion is superior to all others represents such a immature and unconscious way of seeing the world, it’s really is hard for me to believe so many people still see reality through such a lens. This type of thinking tends to attract very insecure people. People who cannot look at themselves individually and be proud of the person they see. As such, they scurry around looking for a group with an established superiority myth which they can then latch themselves onto in order to feel better about themselves.

The good news when it comes to Nazism/white supremacy, at least here in the U.S., is that most people appear to be at least conscious enough not to fall for the most basic and primal type of tribalism — i.e., finding a race-based superiority cult attractive. In contrast, the more nuanced superiority cults, such as those based on mindless nationalism or political identity, are far more entrenched here at home, and present a much greater danger to our future.

Before some of you lose it, I wrote “mindless” nationalism for a reason. I think it’s completely normal and healthy for everyone to love and appreciate their own national/regional culture, this is not what I’m referring to. I’m talking about the hordes of mindless automatons who simply fly the American flag and constantly profess their super-sized patriotism, while being completely unaware of the multitude of evil and anti-American actions being done both at home and abroad in their names. It doesn’t seem to matter to these type that their government is acting in total opposition to the Constitution they ostensibly claim to uphold. These people might be less shallow than an self-professed Nazi, but they are far more dangerous to decent, ethical Americans at home, and billions of innocent people abroad. Political party tribalists represent a similar threat, as I’ve discussed on many occasions.

To summarize, Nazism has become almost as discredited as slavery within the minds of most humans. Meaning, it’s such a patently grotesque, childish and unconscious ideology, it can and will only attract very small pockets of people. In fact, given the rampant corruption, wealth inequality and societal decay we’re experiencing in these United States, I’m somewhat encouraged that the movement is as small and insignificant as it is. Of course, I could be wrong about all of this (we’ll have to see how things unfold if the empire collapses chaotically), but that’s how I see it at the moment. Should that ever change, of course I will fight Nazism, or anything similar with all my energy. In contrast, I think other forms of mindless tribalism, political and nationalistic, are far more likely to cause major disasters in the years ahead.

If I’m right about what I wrote above, why is the corporate media acting so hysterically in response to this small collection of hateful misfits? Let me share a few tweets I wrote yesterday to start the conversations.

 

You can probably tell where I’m going with this. Namely, a lot of really terrible people are trying to reinvent themselves by hyping up the Nazi threat. I’ve discussed this dangerous phenomenon in recent posts, but it’s important enough to keep hammering home. The examples are pretty much everywhere you look. Here’s a particularly shameless example I came across earlier today:

 

Sarah’s not exaggerating. Here’s the exact quote Madeline Albright made on 60 Minutes:

Lesley Stahl on U.S. sanctions against Iraq: We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?

 

Secretary of State Madeleine Albright: I think this is a very hard choice, but the price—we think the price is worth it.

 

60 Minutes (5/12/96)

Lesson number one. Don’t let terrible people get away with moral preening about some relatively insignificant Nazi threat when these are the very same people who have run this country and much of the world into the toilet bowl.

Lesson number two. Don’t allow authoritarians to manipulate your emotions about white supremacy (or any other threat for that matter) as an excuse to take away cherished civil liberties. These types have been selling us on giving away our rights since 9/11, and they continue to use any threat they can to take away those that remain. Free speech is the holy grail for tyrants, and anyone who suggests we give up speech to protect ourselves presents a threat to us all. I came across two examples of this today in the normal course of my reading.

First, an attorney who works for UCLA named K-Sue Park, wrote an op-ed published in The New York Times titled, The A.C.L.U. Needs to Rethink Free Speech. It’s one of the most incoherent, authoritarian pieces I’ve read in a while and, although a painful read, you should definitely check it out. It doesn’t take much logic to recognize that her call for the government to decide which speech is acceptable and which is not, is actually far more dangerous to society than a few hundred Nazis getting together in Virginia, irrespective of the terrible loss of life.

Another example of this authoritarian impulse was penned by Leonid Bershidsky in his Bloomberg article, Facebook and Twitter Are Too Big to Allow Fake Users. To be fair, this article was written before the Charlottesville attack, so I would not characterize him as using the attack to push this narrative, but it’s a wildly dangerous view nonetheless. He writes:

Social networks should be obliged to ban anonymous accounts. If they refuse to do so voluntarily, government regulators should force the issue.

This is a completely unhinged response to the problems of “trolling, fake news and cyberbullying,” which he identifies. It’s the equivalent of taking a nuclear bomb to a knife fight. As someone who spends a great deal of time on Twitter, I can tell you that some of the most insightful and humorous accounts I follow are anonymous. This makes total sense because most people have jobs, and people with jobs can be easily fired or ostracized. Not because they’re writing pro-Nazi tweets, but because everything is essentially political these days, and if your boss happens to be a member of a different political tribe, it could affect your career. Did we already forget what happened to James Damore?

If social media companies suddenly banned anonymous accounts, the entire internet and discourse on it would instantly become 90% less interesting, creative and dynamic. Much of the promise of the web would be crippled by such a policy, and humanity would be far worse off for it.

Such a policy would crush political speech online, and limit it largely to those who create political content professionally. I could see why people in power would want to do this, but I can’t grasp how anyone else could be so naive to support such a agenda.

As Patrick Chovanec (who lived and worked in China), so insightfully tweeted:

Ultimately, we need to recognize that fear is our biggest enemy. The corporate media tries to keep us in a constant state of fear, because it’s in a state of fear where we are most vulnerable and hence easily manipulated. Don’t succumb to fear. Stand strong, be courageous and don’t every give up liberties because some pundit tells you it’s what you need to do to fight whatever enemy they happen to be hyping at the moment.

Finally, let’s finish with a classic clip from the late Bill Hicks, who I consider to be an American prophet. He said it much better than I ever could.

"To summarize, Nazism has become almost as discredited as slavery within the minds of most humans."

Is that why they can't speak? Because no one will listen?

This isn't going away. You are endorsing the act of suppressing free speech of people who want an identity which has been denied to them.

Only an nitwit or liar would claim otherwise.

Is this America?

GUS100CORRINA's picture

PRESENTED WITHOUT COMMENT ...

The following are 25 signs that America is rapidly becoming more like Nazi Germany….

#1 Nazi Germany was a totalitarian Big Brother police state that constantly monitored everything that German citizens did.

#2 Nazi officials often used their positions of power to force others to do dehumanizing things.

#3 In Nazi Germany, even women and children were treated like dehumanized cattle.

#4 In Nazi Germany, authorities could stop you and search you at any time and for any reason.

#5 Under Adolf Hitler, there were massive increases in government spending.

#6 Under Hitler, taxes were raised dramatically in order to pay for all of these social programs.

#7 The economy of Nazi Germany was very highly socialized. As Ludwig Von Mises once correctly observed, the German economy under Hitler was not capitalist at all….

#8 In Nazi Germany, if you conducted business outside of the socialist paradigm you were heavily punished.

#9 In Nazi Germany, government regulation of business got wildly out of control.

#10 Under Hitler, free market capitalism was absolutely hated. 

#11 In Nazi Germany, the health care system was taken over by the government.

#12 Under Adolf Hitler, abortion was made “safe and legal” in Germany.

#13 In Nazi Germany, killing the “defective”, the “weak” and the “disabled” was considered to be a good thing because it made the German people “stronger”.

#14 In Nazi Germany, education was nationalized and God was kicked out of the schools.

#15 Under Adolf Hitler, God was mocked and religion was pushed out of every corner of public life.

#16 Adolf Hitler fully embraced the theory of evolution, and Darwinism provided the intellectual foundation for much of Nazism.

#17 Under Adolf Hitler, the state started taking over the job of child care.

#18 In Nazi Germany, it became fashionable to mock Christians and the Christian faith.

#19 Under Adolf Hitler, sexual promiscuity was actually encouraged.

#20 Once the Nazis took power, they rapidly implemented gun control legislation and later on they took all of the guns away from the populace.

#21 Under the Nazis, large numbers of children were taken away from good families.

#22 Under Adolf Hitler, society became very highly militarized.

#23 In Nazi Germany, the prisons were absolutely packed.

#24 Under Adolf Hitler, there was basically no freedom of speech.

#25 Under Adolf Hitler, paranoia was standard operating procedure.

In Nazi Germany, every citizen was a potential threat and everyone had to be constantly watched for suspicious activity.Of course the exact same thing is happening in America today.  Just about anything you do can get you labeled as a “potential terrorist” by the government.

It should be noted that it was Bismarck that started German government socialized medicine. Also, Hitler and the Nazi's used Romans 13 theology, much like the present 501c3 churches in today's America. "Gott Mit Uns" God With Us was on the German belt buckle. Nazi soldiers also swore an oath "I swear by God this holy oath, to Adolph Hitler." Another mantra was "To serve Hitler is to serve Germany. To serve Germany is to serve God." Hitler disarmed the Jewish and Communist citizens. Not, to my knowledge, everybody.

I imagine that pointing out these historical facts makes me a Nazi sympathizer in today's America. Much like pointing out unfavorable facts about the State of Israel makes one antisemitic. A very sad state of affairs in the land of free speech, to say the least.

You managed to fit a lot of bullshit into one post. I guess you couldn't be bothered to do your own research and learn the truth.

Why don't you just list all of the aspects of generic totalitarianism related to the 3rd Reich, and discount all of the positive advantages of it unique to that country at that time?

Authoritarian is necessary at certain stages. Especially when the nation is as torn asunder as ours. There are an infinite number if specific government and social systems that fall under that umbrella.

I fear we are being maneuvered by all sides of the Oligarchy to accept an authoritarian regime. And just like all before it, it will be short lived after it has served its purpose of stability.

MSM knows that Antifa attacked the white nationalists. Any moron can see this. 

The question is, why does the globalist MSM put forth the big lie? 

Krieger says they want to get rid of free speech.

It might be something more, but what?

The larger globalist agenda seems to be to impoverish developed countries like the U.S. (reduce middle class consumption to save the planet). So backing Antifa (therby instigating civil war, which Antifa might lose) somehow factors in.

Anyone?

The architects of the downfall of the USA are HW and his idiot son, W Bush

These motherfuckers destroyed the middle east and north Africa; changed the racial make up of Europe.

W Bush and his patriot act took the freedom away of each and every American citizen.

They are war criminals, and need to be brought to justice.

Roger Stone said that Nixon said if geo Bush ever became Pres that he would destroy America.

Bushes-Clintons -Obola are the same Deep State Rothschild Rockefeller vermin.

Every war since WW2 with the exception of maybe Korea has Bush fingerprints all over them.

WW2 Prescott

Vietnam and Gulf War 1 Poppy

Gulf War 2, faux 9-11 and Afghanistan GW Bush.

The Buhes are far far more evil than the Kennedys. JFK was a hero who wanted to end the CIA and Fed plus stop the Vietnam War and they killed them because of it.  Eisenhower warned America about MIC/Deep State just before JFK was sworn in.

We have a 30 year war in Iraq (30 years in 2021) because Bush gave Sadam the green light to invade Kuwait.  He is an evil sick bastard and I will pop a bottle of champaign when satan finally takes him in the next year or two.

I don't know what was written by the people at the daily Stormer, did they ever call for people to harm other people? If not this begins a slippery slope.

Ms No's picture

They have no right to shut down anybody's right to freedom of speech.  Murder is already illegal, stalking is illegal, harassment is illegal....  They are edging closer to shutting down all the Alt-Right and they will use the KKK, which has always been a federal op (just like ISIS) to do it.  The reason why is that the oligarch families which run the central banking system are mostly Jewish.  As long as they can't be criticized then they will complete the Communist takeover that they started long ago.  They have the perfect shield, all the power plus minority status.

"I may not agree with what you have to say but I will die for your right to say it."  I guess people don't believe in that anymore.  Once they can silence the Klan types, they can silence anybody.  It's just the beginning.  We just lost the last of our Constitution to a bunch of socialist c*nts. 

I hope they are proud of themselves and ready for what is coming, but they wont be because they have no clue what they have done.  The reason why nobody ever hears about the death toll from Marxism/Communism or the similarities to what we are looking at now is because that is exactly who is seizing control.  You have heard Nazi, Nazi, Nazi, for your entire existence.  If these people had two brain cells to rub together they would realize that if it was really the Nazis taking over then you wouldn't be allowed to criticize them without threat of consequence.

This shit is getting crazy! Not sure if you saw Michelle Malkin on Hannity tonight but wow! Malkin was on fire! People are pissed off about this country being hijacked by a bunch of students that drank the koolaid poured by their Marxist professors. The scary part for anyone that studied history for two seconds is that during the Cultural Revolution in China the youth were incited to hunt people down.

From Cultural Revolution on wiki, "millions of people were persecuted in the violent struggles that ensued across the country, and suffered a wide range of abuses including public humiliation, arbitrary imprisonment, torture, hard labor, sustained harassment, seizure of property and sometimes execution. A large segment of the population was forcibly displaced, most notably the transfer of urban youth to rural regions during the Down to the Countryside Movement.
Historical relics and artifacts were destroyed. Cultural and religious sites were ransacked."

So the destruction of statues by the urban youth has happened before. This is not new and I don't think it is accidental. The MSM is doing its best to whip people into a frenzy rather than working to calm people down.

I don't know if anyone else is getting nervous, but I don't see how this will end well. I really don't.

Matt Bracken talks about minority urban youth (MUY) in his essay, "When America's Cities Explode In Violence." It is an old article but prescient, so forgive my reposting the link, once again.

Same thing with Communism in Cambodia.  Anwhere it touches... Whatever you do don't ever allow yourself to be taken to a "work camp" because there is no such thing.  They make people think they are work camps so they think they have a chance but you just work a little bit before they starve you or kill you in some other fashion.

I visited a few times years ago and it was a group of guys that like Hitler. They seemed pretty juvenile in my opinion. I went on the site earlier this week to read the story that was in the MSM and it was basically a MGTOW rant about the woman that died in Charlotte. Yes, it was in poor taste.

No one is forced to go to their site. If they want to hang out together, I don't see a problem with it as long as they don't make threats.

Vdare is extremely careful not to be radical, while expressing unpopular (but accurate) views.

I am advocating for government intervention, because the free market has failed. But only in defense of the intent of the constitution.

If Ma Bell can be broken up, how is this in the public interest?

Ms No's picture

Isn't that just playing into their hands?  They have built a impenetrable shield of victim around themselves.  It's best approach that carefully because everything is at stake.  Later, once they are busted then you go after them about that.  Getting racial in this environment will just discredit the one doing it and the movement.  The environment will change once people will see what they do.

 

Blue Steel 309's picture

I am on the fence with that. "Playing into their hands" is strengthening the totalitarian state. Using the state to serve the interest of the people was kind of the point of all governments including the original intent of the muh constitution.

Conflating the two seems to have been the MO since Reagan.

I, too, am socially conservative and fiscally liberal.

National Socialism was the closest approach ever made towards addressing the economic and social problems of modern, technical societies.

Blue Steel 309's picture

There needs to be a fusion of those ideas, and anti-federalists ideas, and the US Constitution. Along with all of the original Republican ideals of restricting the rights of citizenship to those best equipped to use it, while treating everyone else equal under the law (hasn't happened in a long time).

Not Stasis, Bolsheviks.  They made the Stasi look like Pikers.  Shit will get real.

HRH Feant2's picture

I used the word Stasi specifically because of what they did in the former East Germany as far as their use of technology and people to spy on other people.

For folks that don't know much about the Stasi, watch "The Lives of Others." Some really sick and twisted people. The way they lived. The way they were manipulated.

Meet Rep. Steve Cohen:

“As a Jew and as an American and as a representative of an African American district, I am revolted by the fact that the President of the United States couldn't stand up and unequivocally condemn Nazis who want to kill Jews and whose predecessors murdered 6 million Jews during the Holocaust, and could not unequivocally condemn Klansmen whose organization is dedicated to terrorizing African Americans."

The whole tribe sees reality through this lens.

Where the only thing that matters is ...

Is it good for the jews?

The difference between you and Steve Cohen is, his Tribe marched,

fought and died to end American apartheid. Your Tribe turned a blind

eye. His Tribe got African-Americans civil rights, the right to vote and

the right to be paid for their work. Your Tribe fobbed off. Your Tribe kept

lynching innocents right up until 1964. Now your Tribe just shoots them!

You have lost any moral authority. Your beliefs are bankrupt. Your race

theory is risible. Trump just crossed that Rubicon. He's now just a

butt boil on the ass-end of US history, full of sound and fury,

signifying nothing. Goose egg.

Cohen's tribe stole Palestine and is still committing genocide to this day.

Cohen's tribe funds ISIS who have murdered thousands of civilians in the most heinous ways imaginable.

Cohen's tribe has been implicated in harvesting and selling organs on numerous occasions.

Cohen's tribe lures Eastern European women to Israel under the pretext of an honest job only to enslave them as prostitutes. Police do nothing.

Cohen's tribe couldn't care less about Negros and only uses them for their own benefit. See Los Angeles/Hollywood wealth inequality between Jews and Negros for proof.

Cohen's tribe killed 20+ million Christians in Russia after the Bolshevik Revolution.

I could go on all day.
