Draggingtree Posted January 23, 2013 Share Posted January 23, 2013 Canada Free Press: “To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens.” History Repeating Itself Jimmy Reed (Bio and Archives) Monday, January 21, 2013 Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Mindful of that truth, Americans should recall what Adolf Hitler said … and proved: “To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens.” Had an atrocity like the Newtown massacre occurred during Hitler’s brutal rise to despotic power, the heartless, unspeakably evil megalomaniac would have had no sympathy for those murdered and their grieving survivors. He was incapable of sympathy. Disguised in hypocritical outpourings of shock and rage, Hitler would have used his fiery oratorical skills to announce to the German people that such an atrocity would never again happen during his watch and that he would use all powers delegated to him to enforce draconian gun control laws. In such a scenario, Hitler’s adoring but ill-informed followers would have failed to realize that they would be disarmed — not to protect them, but to subjugate them.
