When I was but a wee child, actually a very young teen ager, I was blessed to have a teacher by the name of Mrs. Haley; aka: (respectfully) "Haley's Comet." She taught a class that I suspect is not offered anymore, but was mandatory in my time; it was called "Civics." Mrs. Haley taught us "government," the constitution and where it came from, social responsibility, debate, and so many other lessons that have served me well over a lifetime.
In 1960 while I was in Mrs. Haley's Civics class, the Israeli Mossad brought what we would call "a high priority target" by the name of Adolph Eichmann to trial in Israel for genocide and crimes against humanity and the world news was all abuzz with the story.
Mrs. Haley, as she was prone to do, used the then current event as a learning opportunity. I was tasked to work with an exceptionally bright and gifted classmate by the name of David C. to report to the class on the Auschwitz death camp. That summer I learned more about the depths of man's inhumanity to man than a young mind should ever have to. My partner in that effort actually built a scale model of the "processing plant" attached to the back side of the gas chambers with every work position carefully labeled. I still see that model in my mind from time to time.
That experience did, in fact, teach me many things, but it also left an unanswered question burning in my mind: How could prisoners willingly work in that "processing plant" day after day? About a decade or so after that report was presented to my class, I had the extremely rare pleasure of having met one of those people who worked at Auschwitz. And the respect and admiration I felt for that lovely lady that day has lasted throughout my life; the absolute definition of courage and determination. The only thing that has come even close to that dark page in history would be the "hospitality" shown our P.OW.s in the "Hanoi Hilton"; profiles in courage all.
The recent antics of His Lordship Obama caused me to revisit all of these memories because I see many similarities between working in Auschwitz and living in America under the Obama Regime. Statistically, "WE" outnumber "THEM"; there were far more prisoners than guards at Auschwitz. "THEY" do everything possible to make sure that "WE" cannot defend ourselves. "THEY" watch our every move, invade our privacy, take our possessions and assault our human rights.
The major difference between the "workers" at the Auschwitz and most Americans is that the Auschwitz workers were survivors and most Americans have allowed themselves to become victims.
The time I spent mostly just listening to that lovely lady who had survived years at Auschwitz redefined the term "courage" for me as she displayed the number tattooed on her arm with great pride as if it were an Olympic gold medal. She told tales of how she and her co-workers schemed and connived to cause the maximum disruption in the German efficiency. She spoke of their commitment to survive at any cost so that someone would be able to tell the true and factual story of what happened there. Commitment, resolve, and true courage defined beyond the ability of common men to comprehend.
Those in a position to oppose this regime, led by "White Flag" Boehner are willing victims who have long since abandoned all hope for survival; they have become the definition of victims. As is always the case in such circumstances, as in the Auschwitz Death Camp, some prisoners were given the title equivalent to "trustee" which provided them with more privileges, better conditions, and some power over their fellow prisoners. Some will always be willing to trade anything they have for anything that might lessen their discomfort while they await their turn in "the showers." In every similar situation, there are those who will trade "personal favors" for extra food or even simple things like a bar of soap. There are those who will turn in their fellow prisoners - often at the cost of those lives - for a blanket or other valuable possession to minimize their misery to any degree whatsoever, or simply to ingratiate themselves with their captors as they await the inevitable.
This is the true nature and behavior of the Republican Party of today; a gaggle of gutless cowards who will sell their children, grandchildren, and a whole damned nation in order to maintain their elite positions just a little bit longer.
The Democrats / Progressives / Socialists have an agenda; an agenda which is the antithesis of everything that this country once stood for and everything that made this country the greatest nation that God ever gave to mankind and I have to respect them for their misguided dedication to a dead cause.
The Republicans, on the other hand, apparently believe in nothing beyond maintaining the status quo of their highly selective country club of crony capitalists. The Republicans are the "trustees" of the death camp commander. They co-mingle with their fellow prisoners and raise their voices in mock protest at the cruelty of the masters while simultaneously crawling on hands and knees to please their masters. As a group: They are willing victims totally void of conviction or courage.
We The People, we of the Tea Party persuasion and of every other persuasion that dare raise our voices in protest, are those who are working in "An American Auschwitz."
What's that you say? There is no GENOCIDE being done here in America? Really?
According to my dictionary:
GENOCIDE: The deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, racial, political, or cultural group.
Based on this definition, I strongly believe that all key players, to include King Obama, "Whore House" Harry Reid, "The Queen of Mean" Nancy Pelosi, and "Commander of the American Gestapo" Eric Holder and others should all be brought before a tribunal of We The People to face charges of GENOCIDE - to wit:
- Deliberate and systematic extermination of a political group - There is no question that the Tea Party, by definition a "political group," has been targeted by the Obama regime for extinction with the aid of its trustees like John Boehner and others.
- Point: IRS Targeting
- Point: Vice President Biden declaring that the Tea Party are "Terrorists."
- Deliberate and systematic extermination of a cultural group - The American culture has been under deliberate assault by the Obama regime and its allies from the outset. The American culture is based on the freedom of the individual; the freedom to strive without government interference - the freedom to try and the freedom to fail. The freedom of fear of our own government and the freedom to speak our minds without social and economic retribution.
- Deliberate and systematic extermination of a national group - The term "American" has always defined a unique "national group"; a group of people from every corner and every culture of the earth who joined together to establish the most cohesive, the most productive, the most generous, and the most accepting nation in the world. Americans are black and white, Protestant, Catholic, and Jew. Americans believe in and worship God in many ways and respect the rights of others who may not. Americans can trace their individual heritages back to the cave man and remember where they came from and celebrate where they are - and rejoice at the opportunity to help others to achieve that same sense of personal freedom and personal achievement. Americans celebrate God, Country, and family above all else. It may well have been Americans who created the concept of "extended family" because we believe in caring for our own - all fellow Americans, and have never hesitated in our willingness to defend all that we believe in and all that we are with our very lives.
Mr. Obama stated that he would bring "fundamental changes to America." Some understood his words to be a promise; others viewed it for what it was: A serious threat to all of that which defines "America."
We The People, the true believers in all that America once stood for, must become those "Working in Auschwitz." We must continue to harass and disrupt the efficiency of those who strive to destroy the greatest nation God ever gifted to mankind as they continue their relentless assault.
The cancerous disease threatening this nation was not acquired six years ago. It has been festering in the heart and mind of this nation for many decades. And it will not be cured by one or even a dozen elections. However, it can be irradiated by the torch of freedom and eradicated by the committed efforts of We The People; we "The Workers in The American Auschwitz."
