What If History Repeated Itself and Nazis Took Over America Today?

Ponder these questions: As an AmericanJew, or, If you were a jew,

1. If a Nazi-like doctrine took over America, and you could knock on the door of someone who obeyed all government orders regarding masks, regardless of their rationality, or someone who questioned government authority and obeyed few or none of its mask orders — on whose door would you knock?

2. If you were given the choice between knocking on the door of an atheist professor or the door of an Evangelical pastor — on whose door would knock?

Who Would Hide a Jew if Nazis Took Over America?

Sept 21

There is something about most Jews that few non-Jews know: We Jews often ask ourselves if a non-Jew in our lives would hide us in the event of a Nazi-like outbreak.

I don’t know if young Jews think about this, but nearly all Jews who grew up in the decades following the Holocaust often wondered: Would this non-Jew hide me?

I have thought about this all my life because the question, “Who hid Jews?” is one of the most important questions anyone — Jew or non-Jew — needs to think about. That question is far more important than “Who didn’t hide Jews?” because great goodness is rarer than great evil and even rarer than simple moral cowardice. Yet, a vast number of books have been written attempting to understand evil, while relatively few have been written attempting to explain good.

The reason for this is simple: Since the Enlightenment, i.e., since the decline of Judeo-Christian thought, most secular people have believed, and nearly all secular thought has been predicated on, the reality-denying idea that human nature is essentially good. As a result, scholars regard good as the norm and evil as the aberration. So, they study evil far more than good.

That is why the question, “Who rescued Jews?” should be of overwhelming importance to humanity as a whole. If people are interested in increasing good and in decreasing evil, what question could be more important?A lifetime of study of this question has led me to the following answers:

No. 1: Sam and Pearl Oliner, two professors of sociology at California State University at Humboldt, were the authors of one of the most highly regarded works on altruism, “The Altruistic Personality.” The book was the product of the Oliners’ lifetime of study of non-Jewish rescuers of Jews during the Holocaust. They themselves had been hidden by non-Jews in Poland, and I had the privilege of interviewing them.

I asked Sam Oliner, “Knowing all you now know about who rescued Jews during the Holocaust, if you had to return as a Jew to Poland and you could knock on the door of only one person in the hope that they would rescue you, would you knock on the door of a Polish lawyer, a Polish doctor, a Polish artist or a Polish priest?”

Without hesitation, he responded, “Polish priest.” And his wife immediately added, “I would prefer a Polish nun.”

I should note that neither had a religious agenda, as both were secular Jews.

Of course, most Christians in Europe failed the moral test of the Holocaust, but so did nearly all secular intellectuals. And few Christians today deny this. But any honest person would still bet on a priest before a doctor, artist, lawyer or professor. It is one reason I believe that the decline of Judeo-Christian religions is a calamity: We will produce fewer people who will do great good.

No. 2: Another study of rescuers of Jews during the Holocaust offered four characteristics of rescuers. I read this book about 40 years ago and I do not remember the name of the book or three of the four characteristics. But I remember one of them because it struck me as an original insight and because it made so much sense. According to this study, individuals who were considered “eccentric” prior to the war were disproportionately represented among those who hid Jews.

Now, why would that be? Why would people regarded as eccentric be more likely to risk torture and death to hide a member of a persecuted group they weren’t part of?

The answer is obvious: Eccentrics are, by definition, people who march to the beat of their own drummer, who are nonconformists, and who don’t seek social approval.

That should give us some major insights into who would save Jews — or any other group targeted for death (such as landowners in communist countries) — if our society were taken over by Nazis or communists.

If this theory about eccentrics is correct, it should give us pause.

When I observe Americans, Canadians, Australians, New Zealanders, and, for that matter, the citizens of most countries at this time, this observation about who would risk their lives to hide a Jew leaves me pessimistic with regard to how any of these groups would act under a Nazi or communist regime.

We have seen herdlike behavior and an unquestioning obedience to authority that few expected to witness in previously free countries such as the English-speaking ones. Worse, we have seen unquestioning obedience to irrational authority.

Wearing masks outdoors is irrational. Yet a vast number of Americans have, sheeplike, obeyed irrational government demands to wear them. Telling people who have had COVID-19 to take a vaccine against COVID-19, when natural antibodies are longer lasting and more effective, not to mention safer, than a vaccine is irrational. Telling people who have been vaccinated or had COVID-19 to wear masks is irrational. Prolonged lockdowns of healthy people are irrational.

Yet tens of millions of Americans are unquestioningly obeying irrational orders and castigating those resisting or even questioning them.

It was “eccentric” Christian pastors who kept their churches open and an “eccentric” Catholic priest who sued the state of California for denying him his constitutional right to minister to his flock — and who prevailed against the state. Except for these clergymen and a handful of eccentric restaurant owners, almost all other Americans obeyed the state’s irrational orders.

That is frightening because people who obey irrational orders and despise those who do not are precisely the type of people who didn’t hide Jews.

So, then, here are two questions for American Jews (or if you were Jewish) to ponder:

  1. If a Nazi-like doctrine took over America, and you could knock on the door of someone who obeyed all government orders regarding masks, regardless of their rationality, or someone who questioned government authority and obeyed few or none of its mask orders — on whose door would you knock?
  2. If you were given the choice between knocking on the door of an atheist professor or the door of an Evangelical pastor — on whose door would knock?

New Covid Variant PIST-AWF

New Covid Variant PIST-AWF

Subject: Fw: My Health Condition Update-New Covid Variant
To: YOU

But first, DID YOU KNOW?...San Francisco is now paying criminals not to shoot people? Its true.. Go to SF., Make a living not shooting people. > https://www.ktvu.com/news/san-francisco-will-pay-people-to-not-shoot-at-others

Must Watch “Mark Levin: Can you hear the screams of the Afghans, America?”https://youtu.be/2b7Owc1m3GgL

I am sorry I have not been very responsive to your Emails lately. I

have been somewhat under the weather. My doctors have diagnosed me as

having an acute case of Post Islamic Stress Trauma with Apologetic

White House Fatigue, PIST-AWF.

PIST-AWF is a newly defined disease that has become widespread and

highly contagious. Doctors at the CDC released a statement disclosing

PIST-AWF as a new disease.  It is expected that Dr. Fauci will hold a

press conference later today.

It has already infected over half of the United States and is

anticipated to continue to spread. The disease itself affects the

cells of a person’s entire body then goes dormant. The disease ravages

the body and leaves serious side effects including, embarrassment for

your country, depression, anxiety as to when it will come to an end

and wondering how much more damage can be done and how long it will take

to repair the damage once a new person takes over the presidency.

Symptoms include:

Severe pain of the scalp from pulling your own hair while viewing your

president pander to Taliban terrorists.

Uncontrollable heartburn at 8:00 PM during the CNN coverage lies.

Stomach cramps from swallowing the fact we elected Biden/Harris.

Vomiting from viewing terrorists murdering innocent people routinely

on the nightly news.

 (Beyond THE CNN cameras There are innocent Afghans being beheaded and  slaughtered as you read this. And what about the American 160 service dogs the US didn’t have space for and are likely already the victims of target practice by the animal-hating Taliban? )

Bleeding from the eyes. This is not Ebola. It is your eyes reacting to

accidentally flipping to a channel that shows Al Sharpton as a

so-called legitimate news show host.

Since the disease consumes the entire body, every infected person is

then identified as the disease itself.

If you have these symptoms and consider yourself PIST-AWF, please

notify your local election board and place your name on the list for a

cure. It is expected, and sincerely hoped, that the cure will be

available in November 2022.

GOD SAVE AMERICA!

“He, who will not reason, is a bigot; he who cannot, is a fool; and

he, who dares not, is a slave.”

— William Drummond, Scottish writer (1585 – 1649)

‘DIsgraced’ Judge Roy Moore still Has Something To Say We All Should See

A wonderful poem with a message.

Some of you may be wondering what Alabama Judge Roy Moore has been doing since he was removed from the bench for refusing to remove the Ten Commandments from his courtroom wall.

The following is a poem written by Judge Moore. Judge Moore was sued by the ACLU for displaying theTen Commandments in his courtroom foyer. He has been stripped of his judgeship and now they are trying to strip his right to practice law in Alabama ! The judge’s poem sums it up quite well.

America? the beautiful,or so you used to be.Land of the Pilgrims’ pride;I’m glad they’ll never see.Babies piled in dumpsters,Abortion on demand,Oh, sweet land of liberty;your house is on the sand.Our children wander aimlesslypoisoned by cocainechoosing to indulge their lusts,when God has said abstainFrom sea to shining sea,our Nation turns awayFrom the teaching of God’s loveand a need to always prayWe’ve kept God in ourtemples, how callous we have grown.When earth is but His footstool,and Heaven is His throne.We’ve voted in a governmentthat’s rotting at the core,Appointing Godless Judges;who throw reason out the door,Too soft to place a killerin a well deserved tomb,But brave enough to kill a babybefore he leaves the womb.You think that God’s notangry, that our land’s a moral slum?How much longer will He waitbefore His judgment comes?How are we to face our God,from Whom we cannot hide?What then is left for us to do,but stem this evil tide?If we who are His children,will humbly turn and pray;Seek His holy faceand mend our evil way:Then God will hear from Heaven;and forgive us of our sins,He’ll heal our sickly landand those who live within.But, America the Beautiful,If you don’t – then you will see,A sad but Holy Godwithdraw His hand from Thee..~~Judge Roy Moore~~

My Top 10 Media Lies

They’re really piling up- the lies that is, what with the latest ruling that Trump did NOT clear Lafayette Park near Capitol last year for a photo op with Bible. In fact, MICHAEL Goodwin has come up with enough for his ‘Top 10 Media Lies’ which should NOT continue to be ignored and unchallenged…

by Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Another one bites the dust. Another media lie, that is. 

The latest lie to die is the false claim the feds cleared Lafayette Park of protesters last year so then-President Donald Trump could hold a photo op. The Interior Department’s inspector general says police planned to clear the park so a contractor could install a fence, a decision unrelated to Trump’s walk to a nearby historic church burned in a riot. 

If the debunking feels familiar, it’s not your imagination. Only the details differ from earlier cases where the media mob got it all wrong. Sadly, the truth usually emerges not because of the press, but despite it. 

Take growing acceptance of the idea the COVID-19 pandemic started with a leak from a virology lab in Wuhan, China. The idea was always plausible, but the press and big tech declared it a “conspiracy theory” and snuffed it out of circulation. https://cfcdfbf335a759c51ac66847f4214b83.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html?n=0

But after China couldn’t prove the virus jumped from bats to humans, the lab-leak theory gained credence. Suddenly, it became acceptable to share it on Facebook, which appointed itself guardian of all that is proper in American discourse.

The pattern is so pronounced that it’s easy to assemble your own list of Top Ten Media Lies. On mine, the recent cases involving Lafayette Park and the lab-leak theory are Nos. 8 and 9

No. 1 is the oldest and biggest: Trump colluded with Russia to win in 2016 and might be a Russian agent. That scam involved crooked FBI agents and led to the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who took two years to conclude there was no evidence to back the charge. 

Yet the probe had enormous impact, with the drumbeat of anonymous leaks hampering the Trump agenda and helping Democrats take the House in 2018. https://cfcdfbf335a759c51ac66847f4214b83.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html?n=0

Former special counsel Robert Mueller testifies before the House Judiciary in 2019.

Even before it was gone, other distortions appeared. 

Remember Lie No. 2the “Muslim ban” that wasn’t? Or No. 3, the mantra that the 2017 tax cuts were only for the “rich” despite studies showing 80 percent of the population benefitted?

How about the “kids in cages” firestorm, complete with gripping photographs of migrant children in metal containers? 

That was Lie No. 4 and the hottest story going, with Democrats such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rushing to the border with photogenic outrage. They vanished when it was revealed the Obama-Biden administration built the cages and the heart-wrenching photos were from 2014. 

Apologies, corrections and retractions came in bunches, right? You must be kidding. Big media and big tech are too big to admit error. https://cfcdfbf335a759c51ac66847f4214b83.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html?n=0

Even now, with historic surges of young people at the border, the press doesn’t complain about Biden banning their cameras. That’s not journalism — it’s complicity. 

Lie No. 5 was the Ukraine impeachment of Trump, a creative fiction based on a complaint from an anonymous member of the swamp who never testified. But others did to say the president, in trying to get information on Biden family corruption in Ukraine, was guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. 

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez toured the inside of the Border Patrol station in Clint, Texas two years ago.

What Trump actually did was threaten the scam Joe Biden and son Hunter created that involved selling the suggestion that Joe’s influence could be had by hiring Hunter. 

That’s the sort of thing reporters are supposed to expose, not protect. https://cfcdfbf335a759c51ac66847f4214b83.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html?n=0

Not so long ago, I saw such conduct as an outgrowth of bias. Because much of the press is an echo chamber of the far left, my assumption was that slanted coverage resulted from political prejudice. 

That is true in many cases, but too benign to fully explain our new era. Five years after the New York Times and others abandoned standards of fairness to become anti-Trump activists, press misconduct is repeatedly exposed as willful malpractice. In a word, lies. 

Former President Trump brought to light the Biden family’s corruption in Ukraine, writes Michael Goodwin.

Over and over again, they are the boy who cried wolf. It’s getting so where it’s safer to assume what the media insists is absolutely true probably isn’t. 

Just as liberals have become illiberal, media have become more focused on suppressing the truth than revealing it. 

Take Hunter Biden’s laptop, which is No. 6 on my Top Ten, although it rivals Russia, Russia, Russia in importance. When The Post first showed how the contents revealed his shady foreign business deals and how his father helped him, it was not unreasonable for the Times, Washington Post and others to hold off until they could confirm the explosive information late in the campaign.

Hunter Biden’s laptop keeps damning Joe, but most media just ignore it

The role Rudy Giuliani played in getting the material to The Post, which the paper disclosed, created additional concern because Giuliani was Trump’s lawyer. 

So there were legitimate reasons for caution — up to a point. But the real motivation in avoiding the story soon became apparent. 

The outlets that held their noses over the laptop had no trouble embracing the claim from Joe Biden’s campaign that the e-mails on it were “Russian disinformation.” 

In what felt like a coordinated move, big tech instantly blocked The Post and other users from sharing them. 

The final proof that media caution had morphed into coverup came when Tony Bobulinski emerged. A former partner of Hunter and Jim Biden, Joe’s brother, in a joint venture with a Chinese energy conglomerate, Bobulinski authenticated the critical e-mails because he had received them as CEO of the venture. 

Tony Bobulinski said President Biden knew of Hunter Biden’s work in Ukraine.

He also solved a riddle by saying the “big guy” slated to get a secret 10 percent stake was Joe Biden. Bobulinski told me he met with him in early 2017 and said Joe knew everything about the plan to introduce American mayors and governors to Chinese officials so the Chinese could buy US infrastructure. 

All this was public information because of The Post, Fox News and a few others, yet most media cast doubts on the revelations. They were especially loathe to report anything supporting Joe Biden’s role, even though Bobulinski gave all his evidence to the FBI.

That cone of silence goes well beyond bias. That is Lie No. 7

Finally, the 10th lie remains active, so the truth has not fully emerged. 

The subject is ballot integrity, which the left demonizes as improper voter suppression. Joe Biden made the astonishing claim that demands for photo identification are the new Jim Crow

Naturally, his claim was magnified by the media, with CNN creating a logo declaring “Voting Rights Under Attack.” Even the normally sober Pew Trusts said, “Republican Wave of Voting Restrictions Swells.” 

One count had 361 bills introduced in 47 states, and Wikipedia labels all of them attempts to restrict voting access. Craven corporate leaders piled on. 

Never mind that polls show overwhelming support for voter ID laws, with a March survey finding 69 percent of black voters and 75 percent of all respondents favor such measures. 

President Biden has attacked voter security measures and labeled them as new versions of Jim Crow.

The finding provides hope and reminds us there are antidotes to a corrupt press: Facts, facts and more facts. Or, as the late economist Herb Stein put it, “If something cannot go on forever, it will stop.” 

Media lies are no exception.
