Some Historical Context…


Most would say that’s just your standard political ploy… And they would be right, mastered through the ages by previous despots.


How important is this principal for this type of political game?  It’s so important that Hitler inscribed it in Mein Kampf:

“The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people.”

-Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler, Publ. Houghton Miflin, 1943, Page 403

While what we have heard today so far on the executive order is by no means life shattering, we must remain ever vigilant as this is by no means a guarantee we’re out of the woods.  Doubly so since he pointed to congress to do more.

As Joe said yesterday, you should be afraid and the hair should be standing up on the back of your neck.

As a buddy of mine said:

The Taliban aren’t the only people who use human shields.

    Let me paraphrase for you: “Obama is literally black Hitler.”

    • Barron says:

      Because that was the whole point of this post?

      No the point is the tactic of using children as a political tool has long been established by totalitarians, socialists and communists.

      Run along and troll someplace else.

      • Max Kingsbury says:

        Haven’t politicians of all kinds used children as political tools? Should we ban speeches because Mao and Stalin and Hitler delivered them?

        • Barron says:

          Nope, I say leave them available for historical education.

          Are you saying I cannot make an accurate comparison to the behavior of a current politician without implied racism merely because he’s black.

          You seem upset that I would dare call attention to the fact that children are being used as political leverage, why?

          Is your position so weak that you need to stand on the graves of children and emotion to get what you want instead of arguing facts and reason?

          Now as I said, go troll someplace else.
