Martin Niemöller’s words delivered a painful sting to his fellow pastors in postwar Germany. These words clearly spoke the truth: the guilt for the desolation of Germany lied on their shoulders. From the very beginning of the Nazi movement, the pastors were silent, or complicit, or even openly collaborating with it. Very few of them stood up to the Nazis. If more did, Germany could have been spared the desolation.
Read this and understand what our government is doing.
The government never has the resources and the manpower to terrorize the whole society. State terrorism, therefore, is done by separating and marginalizing social groups: first smaller groups, then larger groups, until each group is subdued.
Divide and conquer, A tried and true tactic of governments since the beginning of time.
The massacre in Waco of a few days ago bears all the marks of this tactics. A group is picked so small and marginal that most people won’t associate with them. The group is then marginalized and demonized, and all kinds of false accusations are said about them – violence, illegal drugs, illegal weapons, etc. Then, when the group is so marginalized that the majority of the population won’t trust them, and won’t take their word for anything, the government ambushes them and guns them down. The group is scared and subdued. The police are trained and conditioned to not question orders – they will need that conditioning for later, when the “enemy” is moms, or old people, or kids.
And the public? The public is conditioned to disengage. “I didn’t say anything because I was not a biker.”
Not a biker? Then you have nothing to worry about. Gun owner? One of the most targeted groups there is. Look at all of the organizations that keep clamoring for more "common sense" gun control. It's a first step. Registration first. Then the government will have a list. Then will come confiscation. Some will comply and like sheep they will turn their guns over to the government. The ones that don't will be targeted for a early morning raid by the local SWAT team. And if a gun owner that resists is killed? No big deal.
What about home schoolers. Another small group to be isolated and persecuted. After all, the aren't submitting their children to the government indoctrination center. We can't have the youngsters learning about things like the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Can't happen here you say? Ask the Jews, or the Kulacks. Wait, you can't because there were murdered by their own governments. Kind of like the way our government murdered the Branch Davidians. Burned to death for their beliefs.
The pattern is clear: Since the American public is too large an elephant to eat, it must be subdued in small bites: black inner city kids, bikers, off-the-gridders, Christian activists, gun-owners, etc. Every time, the group must be small enough and marginalized enough so that the general population find it easy and safe to disengage.
When they come for you, others will remain silent and passive because they are not you. There will be no one to speak out for you. And yes, it can happen here.
Remember this passage from Gulag Archipelago;
“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”
