Nazi Role in 1933 Reichstag Fire Should Be Probed, Pau Says


The vice president of Germany’s lower house of parliament, Petra Pau, called for a review into the 1933 fire that destroyed the Reichstag in Berlin which helped clear the way for the Nazi rise to power.

The Reichstag Fire, 1933

“This is a God-given signal!”
D. Sefton Delmar was a reporter for the London Daily Express who witnessed the fire. We join his account as Hitler exclaims his reaction to the inferno:
“‘This is a God-given signal! If this fire, as I believe, turns out to be the handiwork of Communists, then there is nothing that shall stop us now crushing out this murder pest with an iron fist.’
Adolf Hitler, Fascist Chancellor of Germany, made this dramatic declaration in my presence tonight in the hall of the burning Reichstag building.

This eyewitness account appeared in: Delmar, D. Sefton, London Daily Express, 2/28/33, reprinted in: Lewis, Jon E. The Mammoth Book of EyeWitness History, 2000 (2000); Schirer, William, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich (1991); Tobias, Fritz, The Reichstag Fire (1964).

A communist Dutchman, Marinus van der Lubbe, was sentenced to death for treason and arson in 1933 for setting fire to the parliament building four weeks after Adolf Hitler became chancellor. Historians still debate whether van der Lubbe acted alone or if the Nazis were involved in the crime.


“The Reichstag fire is a stigma of German history,” Pau, a member of the Left Party that’s a successor to former East Germany’s ruling communists, said in a speech in Berlin on Feb. 26. “The Bundestag especially should have a particular interest in this and push for a clarification.”

Court Overturns Nazi Verdict on Reichstag Arsonist
Germany’s federal prosecutor has overturned the guilty verdict passed on Marinus van der Lubbe, the communist activist who claimed to have set fire to the Reichstag in 1933 to protest the Nazis’ rising power.

The Nazis used the blaze as a pretext to persecute the opposition and suspend civil rights, saying the fire was the start of a communist revolution. Pau said the review of the fire should be undertaken by scientists, such as fire experts, and historians.  >>>MORE<<<

 
 
 
 
A lot of what’s listed below sounds a lot like what has  been going on and it’s not by National Socialists. shera~
 
Recognise this? what happens when this becomes GLOBAL?
Dictionaries tell us that fascism involves, “Extreme right-wing, nationalist and authoritarian systems of government and social organisation.” Almost everyone recognises the past regimes of Adolph Hitler and Benito Mussolini as totalitarian. However, few citizens of the US, Britain, or Australia, consider that their governments have yet reached such extremes.
Dr Laurence Britt has studied the characteristics of past regimes such as, “Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, Franco’s Spain, Salazar’s Portugal, Papadopoulos’s Greece, Pinochet’s Chile, and Suharto’s Indonesia.”

He lists fourteen common themes.

* 1. Powerful and continuing expressions of nationalism. (Prominent use of flags and slogans. Pride in the military, and international sports successes.)2. Disdain for the importance of human rights. (The people are persuaded to accept the regime’s abuse of its victims. Such as wide and intrusive surveillance, detention without legal access, extreme interrogation methods, the internment and traumatising of children, etc.) 
* 3. Identification of enemies/scapegoats as a unifying cause. (The use of propaganda and disinformation to divert the people’s attention from other problems, and to channel fear and frustration in controlled directions. Active opponents of these regimes are inevitably labelled as terrorists and dealt with accordingly.ngly.)

* 4. Supremacy of the military / Avid militarism. (The military is seen as an expression of nationalism, and is used to assert national goals, intimidate other nations, and increase the power and prestige of the state, and those who control it.)* 5. Rampant Sexism (The political elite and the national culture are male-dominated. Abortion and homosexuality are suppressed. The state is represented as the guardian of moral values. Sexual smears are propagated against opponents of both genders. There is a phobia surrounding alleged sexual abuse or misconduct, in both the media and the courts.)* 6. Controlled Mass Media. (The media is either directly controlled by the state, or it is regulated and indirectly controlled by media magnates who are politically attuned with the regime. In the present day, the media includes the Internet, and censorship and controls also apply there.)
* 7. Obsession with national security.

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.
