It was Karl Marx who said, “History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.” We are fast approaching the farce stage.
On Wednesday, May 9, 2012, President Unbelievable Gall (otherwise known as Barack Hussein Obama) said that members of the US military are “fighting on my behalf.” That sentiment sounds eerily familiar. It was Adolf Hitler who had the German military swear allegiance to him, not to Germany.
Obama’s lack of accomplishments is well documented by Gina Aveni. She says, “The new approach is an attempt to win votes ….” So now this gay marriage diversion and vote buying attempt has caused Obama to open his mouth once again.
In taking the Führer Oath, the German Army swore allegiance not to Germany, its constitution, or its flag, not to the constitution, but to Adolf Hitler personally who attained absolute power over the German people. The word “führer” in the German language ie equivalent to what we call a “leader” or “guide” or “dictator.” This site has a very brief history of what happened in Germany. The similarities between then and what is happening now is striking.
For comparison, let’s look at the oath sworn by the US military today, and what happened to the German military oath before and after Hitler came to power.
Current US military officer oath:
I, _____ having been appointed an officer in the Army of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God.
Current US military enlisted oath:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
Nowhere in either oath is Obama’s named mentioned.
German military oath before Hitler took over:
I swear by almighty God this sacred oath: I will at all times loyally and honestly serve my people and country and, as a brave soldier I will be ready at any time to stake my life for this oath.
German military oath after Hitler took over:
I swear by almighty God this sacred oath: I will render unconditional obedience to the Führer of the German Reich and people, Adolf Hitler, Supreme Commander of the Wehrmacht, and, as a brave soldier, I will be ready at any time to stake my life for this oath.
Did Obama make a Freudian slip? Obama’s remark was couched in homosexual rights terms and how he has evolved on gay marriage. But we have to wonder about his ultimate intentions. Does he really think the US military is fighting on his behalf? Polls of former and current US military personnel suggest otherwise.
Additionally, Hitler’s rise to power is not the only similarity to Obama’s current situation. Look at these promises Hitler made:
- To Unemployed Workers: Jobs building public works such as roads
- To the Middle Class: To restore the profits of small business and the value of savings
- To Farmers: Higher prices for their produce, making up for all their losses during the Depression
Do any of today’s promises from Obama sound familiar? Is history repeating itself?
But that’s just my opinion.
