Goebbels Is Alive And Well…In Amerika!

Op ED Commentary –

Peter Longerich’s 2015 biography ‘Goebbels’  instructs well how history can and does repeat itself. Like many of the Neo Cons who loaded up the Bush Sr. and Jr. administrations, Goebbels was at first a true socialist, perhaps even a Marxist sympathizer. As a young novelist and later journalist, he had a real dislike for the Fat Cat capitalists who he and others both left and right blamed for Germany’s fall from grace. When he ‘found’ Adolf Hitler, despite his many disappointments about Hitler from his diary entries (including the fact that Hitler was in love with his fiancé Magda … and perhaps visa versa), Goebbels joined the new Fuehrer Cult. As with many others in economically and culturally depressed Germany, Goebbels was enamored with the man he referred to as ‘The boss’. The need for a messianic leader, actually a dictator, was very prevalent among many in the NASD (Nazi party) that nothing else mattered as to actual policy vs. actual power. So long as Hitler hammered home pride in the ‘Fatherland’, Volk family values and rejection of the Versailles Diktat, Goebbels  forgave Hitler’s indecision on other issues. Of course, Goebbels’s bitter hatred toward all things Jewish kept him on a course that Hitler himself had steered for so long. Matter of fact, in the biography we learn how even Hitler had to slow Goebbels down at times, and show more patience… and wait for the opportune moments to strike  hard against the Jews.

Joseph Goebbels was a master in the use of propaganda. He knew what Edward Bernays accomplished in our nation through his advertising skills in the field of politics and public relations. One cannot view any films showing the Nazi regime at work without noticing the abundance of flags everywhere. Goebbels’ use of pomp and circumstance with the trumpets and horns and of course the drum beats combined with the marches and uniforms was very effective. Why? Well, during troubled times all that is needed  to indoctrinate are repetitive sound bites and slogans used over and over and over again, with the majority of the populace fed up with their economic plight and there being too few good jobs. Of course all successful propaganda must have  scapegoats ready in the wings to blame most of this on…  with a savior standing by to lead Germany out of the abyss. Another interesting fact mentioned in the biography is that the Nazis did not need to play the ‘God card’ in order to get the masses to follow. Hitler and his cronies, Goebbels included, had such a deep revulsion towards Christianity, the overwhelmingly major religion of Germany. They despised it because their goal was to make the Fuehrer the new Christ for Germany’s resurrection as a European power once again. This anomaly was not what we here in this Amerikan empire have ever experienced.

The great and insightful American author Sinclair Lewis said it best  79 years ago with: “When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross.”  Sadly, we are on our way to seeing it happen here soon. The Neo con propaganda has worked so well for the major part of what we label ‘The Right Wing’.  They have hijacked our wonderful flag and made it into a symbol of their perversions.  They have hijacked the great Jesus of Nazareth and made him the symbol of this ‘born again empire’, as if he would ever bless our illegal and immoral invasions and occupations… along with our merciless drone missiles. Their (so called) adversaries, the Democratic Party, which has labeled as ‘Left wing’ or ‘Liberal’ or even ‘Socialist/ Marxist’ , are just more servants of that same empire. Fascism, with its corporate police state, has arrived and most of us do NOT even realize it! Goebbels, if he is looking UP from his lowest point in the cosmos, must be so proud of what his work had accomplished here in Amerika.
