Who Is This?

First of all, let me start off with a quote:

Silence in the face of evil is itself evil:
God will not hold us guiltless.
Not to speak is to speak.
Not to act is to act.” — Deitrich Bonhoeffer

Who Is This?

  • I was born in one country, raised in another.
  • My father was born in another country.
  • I was not his only child.
  • He fathered several children with numerous women.
  • I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in me.
  • My mother died at an early age from cancer.
  • Although my father deserted me and my mother raised me, I later wrote a book idolizing my father not my mother.
  • Later in life, questions arose over my real name.
  • My birth records were sketchy.
  • No one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate.
  • I grew up practicing one faith but converted to Christianity, as it was widely accepted in my new country, but I practiced non-traditional beliefs and didn’t follow Christianity, except in the public eye under scrutiny.
  • I worked and lived among lower-class people as a young adult, disguising myself as someone who really cared about them.
  • That was before I decided it was time to get serious about my life and embarked on a new career.
  • I wrote a book about my struggles growing up.
  • It was clear to those who read my memoirs, that I had difficulties accepting that my father abandoned me as a child.
  • I became active in local politics in my 30s then, with help behind the scenes, I literally burst onto the scene as a candidate for national office in my 40s.
  • They said I had a golden tongue and could talk anyone into anything.
  • I had a virtually non-existent resume, little work history, and no experience in leading a single organization.
  • Yet I was a powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to me, as though I were a magnet and they were small roofing tacks.
  • I drew incredibly large crowds during my public appearances.
  • This bolstered my ego.
  • At first, my political campaign focused on my country’s foreign policy…
  • I was very critical of my country in the last war, and seized every opportunity to bash my country.
  • But what launched my rise to national prominence were my views on the country’s economy.
  • I pretended to have a really good plan on how we could do better, and every poor person would be fed and housed for free.
  • I knew which group was responsible for getting us into this mess.
  • It was the free market, banks and corporations.
  • I decided to start making citizens hate them and, if they became envious of others who did well, the plan was clinched tight.
  • I called mine “A People’s Campaign”.
  • That sounded good to all people.
  • I even had a civilian army harass people on the streets, and protest the free market, banks, and corporations.  I made sure I wasn’t directly linked, of course.
  • I was the surprise candidate because I emerged from outside the traditional path of politics and was able to gain widespread popular support.
  • I knew that, if I merely offered the people ‘hope’, together we could change our country and the world.
  • So, I started to make my speeches sound like they were on behalf of the downtrodden, poor, ignorant to include “persecuted minorities.”
  • I set one group of people against the other.
  • My true views were not widely known and I kept them unknown, until after I became my nation’s leader.
  • I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody could have easily found out what I really believed, if they had simply read my writings and examined those people I associated with. I’m glad they didn’t.
  • Then I became the most powerful man in the world.
  • And then the world learned the truth.

Who am I?  Why, I thought you knew!  I am Adolf Hitler of course.  Who else did you think I was?

Adolf Hitler in Yugoslavia.

So folks, let me ask you to consider this.  If you thought it was someone else, then let me also ask you to think about why history repeats itself.  Deitrich Bonhoeffer tried to warn the German people and nobody listened.  They mocked and ridiculed him.  They called him a conspiracy nutjob.  They said people aren’t that stupid to let someone like that be their leader.  He saw churches being infiltrated and corrupted.  He saw companies being taken over by the government, one being an automobile company.  He saw class warfare.  He saw hatred being stirred up by Hitler.  He warned everyone about what was happening in Germany and nobody listened.

I find it not a coincidence people like Glenn Beck are treated the same way, and people like Glenn Beck are giving the same message as Bonhoeffer.  They say he’s a conspiracy nutjob.  They say he’s an idiot.  They even say he’s doing it for ratings.  Odd that everything he has warned about has been shown to be accurate so far.  Is that a coincidence, or is there something we as Americans should be paying attention to?
