History rarely stays quiet.


 

This keeps happening more and more.

Daily since Election Day.

Yet, still nothing from the presumed president-elect.

Yet, when the presumed vice-president elect is booed at Hamilton in NY, he has this to say:

2016-11-20_1424 2016-11-20_1423

And this isn’t really anything new. He hasn’t spoken out against those who endorsed him – KKK, American Nazi Party. National Aryans and every other white supremacy group OR things they’ve done/said before or after the election.

The fact that 80% of Evangelical Christians voted for him .. I am speechless, confused and disheartened. I’ve tried to just deal with it, but it goes against EVERYTHING I was taught growing up. Yet the people that taught me have betrayed their own teachings and no matter what they believe, I will never abandon what I believe – what I know to be true. Why? Because every fibre of my faith teaches against hate.

I will never be a party to hate. Because when hate is legitimized and sanctioned it can NEVER bring about anything good. What is written below is NOTHING more than history from the past, what you think or do with it is entirely up to you.

The people of post-war Germany knew just how wrong they were when the Third Reich came crashing down around all the ‘good’ they had been told. When the people of Germany democratically elected the Nazis and eventually Hitler, they never truly understood what was coming. Contrary to what many believe, the Nazis didn’t seize power.

They heard someone blame immigrants, the Jews , religious groups, other political parties and the media (Lügenpresse – the lying press) for everything and they believed it because they were desperate to believe anything they were told.

And we all know what happened once the Nazis had the German people under their guise: Auschwitz-Birkenau, Dachau, Bergen-Belsen, Treblinka, Ebensee, Sobibor, Bełżec, Buchenwald, Majdanek, Chełmno and Mauthausen-Gusen.

And interestingly enough, Evangelical Christians and Jehovah’s Witnesses were the only religious groups that refused to legitimize what the Nazi Party was selling to the German people.

In the end, many of them died for their firm opposition to hate whilst those that supported the Nazis lived comfortably until Germany fell.

In case you don’t know, the picture at the start – minus the Trump banner – is the railroad entrance to Auschwitz. The worst of all the Nazi death camps.

Do I think the US on this path now?  I pray not, but I do know when anyone is silent about anything like what we’re seeing – they consent to it. And like it or not – history rarely stays quiet.
