The Rest of the Story

Once upon a time, a university professor spoke out against political correctness. Student activists organized against him. They encouraged students to boycott his classes. They disrupted his lectures, shouting him down, threatening him and denigrating him. He was forced to give up his academic chair.

He said he was helpless “against the murderous bellowing of youngsters who accept no individual responsibilities but pose as spokesman for a group or an impersonal ideal, always talking in the royal ‘we’ while hurling personal insults … and claiming that everything is happening in the name of what’s true, good and beautiful.”

Sound familiar?

Here’s the rest of the story.

This happened in Germany in 1925.

The student activists were Hitler Youth.

    And Hitler’s Jungen is very active on campus today under many different names. Hitler stated, “If I believed in a God, I would be Muslim.” We’re still fighting WWII and the mainstream press is still battling for Hitler.

      I’m learning a lot about this from D’Souza’s excellent book, The Big Lie. He lays out the history of fascism very clearly, from its inception as a philosophy that grew out of Marxism through its brutal expression and failure in Italy and Germany.

      Then he explains how it moved to the U.S. and was “cleansed” with the Big Lie that progressives are not fascists, when they so clearly are. I’m at the end of the book now where he says he’ll lay out what Italy and Germany did wrong and what we can do to combat them before they get too powerful.
