Genocide I

The Nazis didn't start with thousands of death camps, train schedules, IBM tabulating machines, and giant crematoria. They started small and worked up. It wasn't until Kristallnacht in November of 1938 that they got organized enough to kill 91 Jews at one time.

ISIS has kidnapped 90 Assyrian Christians this week. They beheaded 21 Christians last week. They're a new government, recently formed. They're starting small and already talking about working up.

We can wait. Unless some miracle happens, we will wait. But we shouldn't expect the outcome to be anything other than the obvious. It's the same evil manifesting itself under a new name.

It will be the Jews, the Christians, the homosexuals, the intellectuals, Muslims from different sects and any one who doesn't go along. They will die, deaths by every mutilating, degrading means, wiped out along with the ideas, thoughts and dreams they had. They will be erased. And when it gets rolling, we will not be able to say we didn't see it coming because they are proud of it and they are posting for the world to see. (WARNING! Graphic images).
“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."
--Winston S. Churchill

"They came first for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.'

Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.

Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up."

These words are attributed to Pastor Martin Niemoller, who delivered antiSemitic sermons early in the Nazi regime, but later opposed Hitler and was sent to Sachsenhausen and Dachau concentration camps. He narrowly escaped execution just before the end of the war.

A man who understands evil.

Elie Weisel, another Holocaust survivor, is attributed to have said, "When someone says they want to kill you, believe them."

A man who understands evil.

These men narrowly escaped one of the worst horrors in the history of mankind. They know the depths of hell that are created when human society ignores the pleas of those who are being murdered solely for political reasons, or because they are "different", or because they worship G-D differently than the murderers.

We ignore their warnings, and the cries of the innocent, at our peril.

burt is right.

In my opinion the most dangerous of the would-be/will be killers are the "Liberals." They seem to feel that if you don't think as they do, you should be doomed.
