When the Nazis took the Communists…

A friend set me off when he linked to a post discussing the inane opinion of Lindsey Graham, Republican from South Carolina, who’s “glad” about the PRISM program.

Here’s what I wrote:

On to the question: I’ve just watched a movie (“Margaret”) in which this attitude is nicely condensed into the statement that it is easy to support the status quo if one is a member of the dominant group. And that’s exactly what’s at play here: Graham’s very explicit about the fact that he’s not talking to terrorists and that’s why he has nothing to worry about.

Now let’s do a little thought experiment: what if Mr Graham wrote to a close friend that all the niggers and wetbacks need to be wiped out (note that I condone neither racist slur, nor the sentiment)? What if Mr Graham would confess to an electronic diary that the 14-year old daughter of his neighbors gives him a hard-on every time he sees her and he’d love to take her virginity without her consent (note that I don’t know the politician’s neighbors, do not actually ascribe such thoughts to him, nor condone rape of anyone)?
Would he have to worry? No, he wouldn’t have to because the NSA’s mandate does not concern this. And Mr Graham has much reason to believe that neigher racism nor rape will ever be high enough on the US government’s agenda that they’ll deploy large-scale data collection to identify indicators of this.

So yes, as of right now, I have nothing to hide because I am not of enough interest (and not yet angry enough) to the US or DE governments that I’d run a risk. Do I wanna wait for the day when I suddenly am?

Hell! Fucking! No!

Incidentally, we as Germans should know this better than most. To quote Martin Niemöller:
“Als die Nazis die Kommunisten holten…..”

Als die Nazis die Kommunisten holten,
habe ich geschwiegen,
ich war ja kein Kommunist.

Als sie die Sozialdemokraten einsperrten,
habe ich geschwiegen,
ich war ja kein Sozialdemokrat.

Als sie die Gewerkschafter holten,
habe ich geschwiegen,
ich war ja kein Gewerkschafter.

Als sie mich holten,
gab es keinen mehr,
der protestieren konnte.”

Martin Niemöller Stiftung

    Resistance is futile, You will be assimilated into Aztlan! We must oppose all secularism, including that of Zapata, Lenin, Aflaq and Ataturk. The police must be respected like an auxiliary to the clergy. Saint Johanan of Damask said Islam was but a Christian Heresy, so long as they obey the Holy Father. Pope Benedict was right that molesting is not absolute evil as St Teresa of Avila told us priestly molestation is the ultimate rapture and molesting assures propogation of the faith by probiotic epigenetics. We must replace Donmeh Deuteronomy “Common” law with advanced natural Napoleonic Law across the world by uniting Europe with Islam and China under the Sineurabia Code and returning to the gloriously chivalrous Medieval Times!
