It looks like we've reached our Reichstag moment.https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2022/09/bidens_emreichstagem_fire.html
the MAGA+FASCIST= JANUARY 6th phony equation now emanating from Joe Biden and his party -- even going to the obscene length of enlisting the recent solemn remembrance of the 9/11 nightmare -- oblige me to ask the reader’s indulgence while I tread upon my own rule.
The Dems comparisons of January 6th to 9/11 would be merely preposterous if it were not so morally disgusting; their strained attempts to make the D.C. riot of January 6, 2021 and the resulting trespasses upon the Capitol building into a seminal, earth-shaking event require them to take mendacity to new depths.
In fact, there is an historical event that’s somewhat closer to the mark, but it’s one that every Democrat would be loath to recognize: for purely naked political purposes Biden and many Democrats are trying to make January 6th into some poor facsimile of the Reichstag Fire.
On February 27, 1933, not quite a full month after Adolf Hitler was “legally” appointed Chancellor of Germany, the huge Reichstag building, home to the nation’s parliament, burned to the ground. While it’s never been proved conclusively, it’s strongly suspected that the Nazis themselves arranged the fire (Herman Goering in particular is thought to have been complicit) in order to create a crisis that would allow Hitler to justify a further and more complete seizure of power. German communists seeking to also ignite a coup were to blame for the fire according to the Nazis, and Hitler came down upon them like a ton of bricks. Ironically though, it was not a German, but a young Dutch communist, Marinus van der Lubbe, who was quickly apprehended, convicted and executed for the crime. His actual guilt has always been a matter of controversy, and Germany’s modern-day government saw fit to issue him a posthumous pardon.
Taking full advantage of the shock the fire caused upon the sensibilities of ordinary, order-loving Germans, emergency decrees were quickly issued by the Hitler and his cabinet. In March the resituated parliament, bullied and intimidated by the Nazis, passed the notorious Enabling Act, rubber-stamping the suspension of the right of assembly, press freedom, and the ability protests; effectively obliterating the Weimar Republic and clearing the way for absolute dictatorship.
Hastily built concentration camps were soon filled with German communists, along with other undesirables and perceived enemies of the Reich. We all know the succeeding chapters to that terrible story.
While we can rejoice in the fact that such extreme measures are presently unthinkable in America, Joe Biden, whether by his own design or adhering to a script fashioned by sharper minds, has chosen to employ the autocrat’s tactic of marginalization of large segments of the American population; an action which, as history shown again and again, can be the first step in a tragic spiral of violence and destruction.
There are clearly some within the Biden orbit who wish to provoke a violent response to something -- anything -- so long as it gives them the necessary excuse to invoke the powers of the state to suppress and intimidate opposition.
