How Did Hitler Get a Lifetime Appointment as Germany’s Head of State?

Standard

There’s a lot of talk these days about world leaders who never leave their posts. Some in America question whether that could happen here.

After World War I, Germany lost its military superiority. The country was defeated and downhearted. German crowds listened when Adolph Hitler spoke to them in Munich beer halls. Although his speeches were rants, he gained such a large following, his party gained a majority in the German parliament (the Reichstag), and Hitler rose to became Germany’s prime minister. Then, Germany’s president died. Upon President von Hindenburg’s death, as prime minister, Hitler slipped into the role of Germany’s head of state. There was no election. Hitler was never elected president. The rest is history. A very bad history. One that must never be repeated. Suellen Ocean is the author of The Steinberg Conspiracy Series. Available here:

OMG, Imagine Having a Neighbor Who Puts a Swastika On His Front Lawn

Standard

Some people have a lot of nerve and maybe just hate. A man in California’s Bay Area has created a huge swastika on his front lawn and the neighbors are having a fit and the media is having a hay day. There are pictures taken from the air, YouTube videos and headline radio news. The guy says it’s an ancient Tibetan symbol, which it is. It’s also found on Native American baskets, woven long before Hitler co-opted it for his symbol of hate. Now, some guy has made it a part of his landscaping. The neighbors are sure to make it a part of the past. As of today, the swastika is covered up in blankets. There are plans to sit down with the man and show him the long list of people who signed a letter, protesting against it and demanding that he remove it.

Have You Seen the Middle Eastern TV Series Fauda?

Standard

The first time hubby and I watched episode one of Fauda, we were not impressed. It consisted of a violent Israeli attack on a Palestinian wedding. We shook our heads and in unison said, “No thanks, not watching that.” But we kept hearing good things about the show, so we broke down and gave it another try. We’re glad that we did. Fauda has an excellent cast. The actors do an outstanding job of helping us envision both Israeli and Palestinian lives, living on the edge of a never-ending war. Although it’s fiction, it’s based on the truth of the rough neighborhood that is Israel and the Palestinian Territories. The show tries to portray fairness to both sides. I have no idea of the show’s accuracy, but I’m told it’s a good portrayal. I hope the Middle East works its differences out and someday they live in peace. Suellen Ocean is the author of The Steinberg Conspiracy Series. Available here:

Genealogy: Anti-Semites With Jewish Names… Who Knew?

Standard

The New York Times is taking heat for publishing author Alice Walker’s book recommendations. “What books are on your nightstand?” they asked. Mentioning a book by author David Icke is drawing disgust. Yair Rosenberg writes in tabletmag.com that David Icke is “one of Britain’s most notorious anti-Semites.”

I’ve thumbed through a David Icke book and I’ve heard an interview. I friend had his book and tried to tout it to me. I had to underline phrase after phrase and make page notes, hoping my friend would see the inconsistencies in what Icke was championing. Rosenberg writes, “Like many conspiracy theorists, Icke claims that a secret conspiracy controls the world. And like many conspiracy theorists, Icke claims that this secret conspiracy happens to be Jewish.”

I cannot tell you how many times I’ve seen and read the names of alleged anti-Semites and shake my head at the ignorance of their own ethnic backgrounds. David Icke is a perfect example. He has a very Jewish first name, David, who was the king of the Jews. And one could argue that his last name is a version of Issac, also a Jewish name. The Istanbul Jewish Genealogy Project lists these names: Izaak, Izac, Izah, Izak, Izchak. If I were researching the surname Icke, I would not rule out Jewish origins and that the name had been altered a bit over the years.

We Can Thank the Dutch for Religious Tolerance… They Were the First

Standard

We can thank the Dutch for religious tolerance. They were the first. Before New York was New York it was New Amsterdam and we know what that means. “The Dutch.” Now mind you, America’s early Dutch were severe in their religious beliefs. What religion wasn’t severe back in the late 1600’s? But thank you Holland for being the first European country to practice religious tolerance.

Holland’s openness to all forms of religion continues to this day but make no mistake, there never was nor ever will be an absolute or unanimous way of thinking. During the Rembrandt-era, Holland’s Jews were impacted by the anti-Semitism of out-spoken Christian religious leaders. There was even strife between Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews. And recently, there has been an uptick in political movements that have less tolerance for immigrants and the religious diversity that they bring. In spite of this, tolerance is the norm in Holland.

When Was the Last Time You Heard the Word Nazi Regarding America’s Political Arena?

Standard

Blog Size Chimney Fire Front Cover

We really should not take lightly, the rhetoric thrown around the political arena these days. It wasn’t that long ago, in 1935, when Hitler signed the Nuremberg Laws that forbid sexual relations between Jews and non-Jews. And there were a lot of people who actually thought it was a good idea. You’d be surprised (or maybe not) what happens to our minds when we attend large rallies and get all worked up. The Nuremberg Laws, that also removed Jews from many rights of citizenship, were part of the German Public Health system that Germans put their hard-earned tax dollars into. What a lot of people don’t realize, is that another Nazi public health practice, sterilization, was copied from the good ‘ol United States of America. Back then, which was not that long ago, there were plenty of people who thought sterilization of incarcerated women, particularly of color, was a good idea. There are a lot of good ideas that will make this world a better place but hate… is not one of them.

Where Did the Nazis Get Ideas For Racism? From America…

Standard

Militant forms of racial hygiene had been brewing since the 1920’s and continued to grow as the National Socialist Party emerged with Adolph Hitler as their leader. The Nazis took it to the extreme but they weren’t the only ones. When Darwinists in Germany began setting up racial hygiene programs, and looking for comparisons, they looked to America.

In Colonial America’s French Louisiana, it was stated in the laws pertaining to slaves and their masters, “We forbid our white subjects, of both sexes, to marry with the blacks, under the penalty of being fined and subjected to some other arbitrary punishment.” And it was a long time before it became legal for blacks and whites to marry. Add to that, in America’s southern states there was a one drop rule, referring to blood, meaning that even one drop of black blood made someone black, period. This strict definition and the persecution and oppression that came with it was considered by Third Reich doctors when they set up Germany’s racial hygiene programs. German laws were such that if a citizen was one-eighth Jewish, they were eligible to marry a full-blooded German. When Third Reich doctors studied American laws regarding marriage between blacks and whites and subsequently created Germany’s racial hygiene laws, Nazi doctors thought Americans were the ones who were strict. And they studied carefully the sterilization of black women in America’s prisons.

Originally, the German racial hygiene movement, in the late 1800’s, was not as malicious as that of the Nazi era. Believe it or not, when their racial charts were set up, Jews were not excluded from the German ideal but were included in their definition of a superior race. Let’s hope the world grows to understand that a man who has a weakness in one area probably has greater qualities in another. Suellen Ocean is the author of the novel Chimney Fire. Available here:
