“GERMANY’S UNCROWNED KING”

Hitler invaded various European countries through his “Lebensraum” expansion plan

(Mar. 14, 2013) — Seventy-seven years ago today, on March 14, 1936, The New York Times reported that Adolf Hitler received a “frenzied reception” by “300,000 Nazis” in the city of Munich with thousands of onlookers shouting, “Heil, der Fuehrer!”

The Times described the scene as a “nearly hysterical assemblage” which included “15,000 Nazi girls, standing at attention with their right arms stretched out in the Hitler salute.”

The enraptured audience showed its approval by shouting “Heil!” at each pause in Hitler’s speech.

Following World War I and the Treaty of Versailles, Germany was suffering with high unemployment, tremendous inflation, a sinking economy, and a weak republic. Hitler ran for president against Paul von Hindenburg, who was elderly and ran for re-election only reluctantly. During 1932, Hitler campaigned across Germany, promising to “abolish unemployment” and make Germany prosperous again.

Hitler and his Nazi Party won 37% of the vote, and by means of a brokered agreement, Hindenburg offered Hitler the position of Chancellor, having been influenced by businessmen and bankers who “believed Hitler would be good for business.”

 

After his appointment to Chancellor, Hitler reportedly exclaimed, “We’ve done it!  We’ve done it!”

In 2008, Barack Obama’s people said, “Yes, we can!”  Similar to Hitler’s admirers, some Obama supporters reportedly fainted while hearing him speak.

Hitler used the technology of the day, the radio, to disseminate propaganda to the German people, and eventually stamped out all opposition.

Opponents of Obama have been called right-wing extremists, sovereign citizens, racists, and domestic terrorists in an orchestrated disinformation campaign.

By 1934, Hitler was carrying out politically-motivated murders, including members of the Nazi Party. Opponents of Obama have been threatened with death, and some have died under mysterious circumstances.

However, the German people continued to cheer Hitler.  An article from The New York Times dated September 10, 1934 is titled “Hitler is Elated by Wide Acclaim” with a subtitle of “Declares that ‘Putting Over’ a Speech is More Important Than What is Said.”

Hitler was known for his “hypnotizing oratory.”  Barack Hussein Obama has been described as a great orator, but it has been noted that during his speeches, he does not say anything of substance.

It has been suggested that Hitler suffered from narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), a condition which, according to The Mayo Clinic, encompasses “a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. Those with narcissistic personality disorder believe that they’re superior to others and have little regard for other people’s feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism.”

Townhall.com writer Ben Shapiro has said that Barack Hussein Obama displays symptoms of NPD as evidenced by a “desperate need for attention…an inflated sense of self-importance, a strong sense of entitlement, preoccupations with utopian fantasies, elitism, manipulative tendencies and pathological need for praise.”

Despite his promises to his adoring crowds, Adolf Hitler plunged Germany into a second world war after rounding up hundreds of thousands of Jews, gypsies, Poles, Austrians, Jews, and disabled people and exterminating them.  More than 400,000 American soldiers gave their lives to stop Hitler and the Axis powers from conquering the remainder of Europe and possibly the United States.

Obama was elected in 2008 as the American people were suffering from a financial collapse, high unemployment, high gasoline prices and a thinly-stretched military.  By April 2011, he had accomplished much of his first-term agenda, increasing the national debt by several trillions.

Obama’s second term includes amnesty for illegal aliens, implementing his socialized health care program, and restricting firearms ownership.

Did the mass shootings which occurred during his first term have anything to do with his aggressive gun control plans for his second?

The New York Times’ September 10, 1934 article stated that Hitler was “accustomed to adulation.”  In 2008, a sycophantic press, mesmerized by Obama as “the best hope to bring change” even though little was known about his background.

Hitler made a deal with another dictator, Josef Stalin.  Obama has made a deal with Egypt’s Mohamed Morsi, a member of The Muslim Brotherhood, a sworn enemy of the United States.

The Times referred to Hitler as “Germany’s uncrowned king,” as “women of toil, with deep furrows on cheeks and brows, would wipe away tears of emotion if his eyes turned in their direction.”

While Hitler was seen as a 20th-century messiah of Germany, Obama was perceived by many to be a “21st-century savior.”

During the 2012 campaign, Obama’s fundraising lagged behind that of his opponent such that he asked supporters to donate birthday and wedding gifts to his campaign.  Yet with sinking popularity and continued high unemployment, Obama reportedly won the election.

Or did he?

If not, that makes him “an uncrowned king.”
