Repetition Can Doom A Country

The following letter appeared on Glenn Beck’s website after it came to his attention and he feels that it needs to be spread far and wide.  I agree with him.  We cannot let a small group of people destroy our country with class or race warfare.  It does nothing to advance mankind nor does it keep us free.  We must remember that the wars progressives are fighting against the rich, their myth of a War on Women or the Race Wars that they constantly bring up are false narratives designed to increase their power and decrease your liberty.  We must educate ourselves on our history including where we came from and why our Founders decided there were certain self evident truths that must guide us as a people and as a country.  If you forget the past, you are doomed to repeat – lets not repeat it for it is  a past that while parts are good much is bad and deprives us of our liberty.

The letter, titled “Progressive Kristallnacht Coming?” reads:

Regarding your editorial “Censors on Campus” (Jan. 18): Writing from the epicenter of progressive thought, San Francisco, I would call attention to the parallels of fascist Nazi Germany to its war on its “one percent,” namely its Jews, to the progressive war on the American one percent, namely the “rich.”

From the Occupy movement to the demonization of the rich embedded in virtually every word of our local newspaper, the San Francisco Chronicle, I perceive a rising tide of hatred of the successful one percent. There is outraged public reaction to the Google buses carrying technology workers from the city to the peninsula high-tech companies which employ them. We have outrage over the rising real-estate prices which these “techno geeks” can pay. We have, for example, libelous and cruel attacks in the Chronicle on our number-one celebrity, the author Danielle Steel, alleging that she is a “snob” despite the millions she has spent on our city’s homeless and mentally ill over the past decades.

This is a very dangerous drift in our American thinking. Kristallnacht was unthinkable in 1930; is its descendent “progressive” radicalism unthinkable now?
