Here is an interview, please pay attention when you read it and let’s see if you can guess who this interview is by:
“It is manifestly clear and has been proven in practice and by the facts of all revolutions that a struggle for ideals, for improvements of any kind whatsoever, absolutely must be supplemented with a struggle against some social class or caste.
My object is to create first-rate revolutionary upheavals, regardless of what methods and means I have to use in the process. Earlier revolutions were directed either against the peasants, or the nobility and the clergy, or against dynasties and their network of vassals, but in no case has revolution succeeded without the presence of a lightning rod that could conduct and channel the odium of the general masses.
With this very thing in mind I scanned the revolutionary events of history and put the question to myself against which racial element in America can I unleash my propaganda of hate with the greatest prospects of success? I had to find the right kind of victim, and especially one against whom the struggle would make sense, materially speaking. I can assure you that I examined every possible and thinkable solution to this problem, and, weighing every imaginable factor, I came to the conclusion that a campaign against the Muslims would be as popular as it would be successful.”
Who Could this above passage be from?
Read it again if you have to and chances are high, you will say it is from Donald Trump. “I came to the conclusion that a campaign against the Muslims would be as popular as it would be successful.” is exactly what he is doing.
If you guessed Donald Trump, you would be wrong.
This was an interview by Adolf Hitler and only two words were changed from it:
America Instead of Germany
Muslims instead of Jews
Hitler caused the most damage to the Jewish people based on his premeditated plan. The scale of his wrath was so severe, wide scale massacres and inhuman camps, made you want to lose hope in humanity.
He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.
Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.
The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.
Every person who supported and followed Hitler was from the same DNA. And did just as much harm to Jewish people as he did. You would say, the world then was different and today there is no way a dictator like him can be accepted. Think Again.
Bill of Rights
There was another man who is considered the father of human rights in America, he was the driving force behind the Bill of Rights.
Although a Bill of Rights to protect the citizens was not initially deemed important, the Constitution’s supporters realized it was crucial to achieving ratification. Thanks largely to the efforts of James Madison, the Bill of Rights officially became part of the American Constitution in December 1791.
America was indebted to immigration for her settlement and prosperity. That part of America which had encouraged them most had advanced most rapidly in population, agriculture and the arts.
Million man march to DC
Another great man stood up for civil liberties and made history with million man march to DC. That march called by Martin Luther King on October 16, 1995 contributed directly to president Obama being elected many years later.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
There is a smart tech guru who built the largest social network in the world who had this to say
“I can only imagine the fear Muslims feel that they will be persecuted for the actions of others,” Mark Zuckerberg wrote.
“As a Jew, my parents taught me that we must stand up against attacks on all communities. Even if an attack isn’t against you today, in time attacks on freedom for anyone will hurt everyone.
If you’re a Muslim in this community, as the leader of Facebook I want you to know that you are always welcome here and that we will fight to protect your rights and create a peaceful and safe environment for you.”
All of the people above meant nothing to Adolf Hitler
Hitler would have thrown them in those camps; just as he did, to all those before them. He rewarded and was proud of those who with their actions and words tried to take humanity to the stone-ages.
Donald Trump would have made Hitler Proud
Donald Trump would have made Hitler Proud. The difference between the two? One was already a leader and this one is running to become one. The pain of Jewish people can still be felt by the decedents decades later. Jewish people were the focus of Hitler’s terrorism many years ago and Muslims are the focus of Donald Trump’s today. He is a known racist, and a bigoted, right-wing leader who makes Nigel Farage look statesmanlike and Nick Griffin almost cuddly.
What power does to people
They say power corrupts people but in reality “power brings out the real you”. Something which was already there and popped its ugly head in private but when you think you got power, the real you comes out in open.
Prejudice is like a drug, your mind and body gets used to it very fast and if the dose doesn’t increase, you do not get the same rush anymore.
Picking on Mexicans was the Beta launch of Trump’s Values.
To feed your addiction you must take the dose a notch higher. Picking on Mexicans, gave Donald Trump the media and it also gave him the prejudiced rush he feeds on. It was a demo of sorts, beta version of his values. Him and his team wanted to test, what will happen if they directly degraded all Mexicans.
- How will the Americans take it?
- how will the other minorities takes it?
- How will it effect the opinion polls and?
- how would the media react towards it?
On all fronts, there was nothing but advantages. Small number of people in America made noise, minorities including Muslims, didn’t really provide support and media gave the trump campaign, exactly what they were looking for, “More Exposure”.
Role of the Media
PR makes you win, in American political thriller television series Scandal, a bomb goes off in a church, vice president Sally, just like all the others was running away, when her campaign manager convinced her to stay and put on a show for the camera. She did and with it, went way ahead of the standing President Fitzgerald Grant played by Tony Goldwyn.
Just when all hopes were lost and president grant was about to lose; on the last day of elections, his son starts to bleed on the stage and eventually dies. Show’s main character, Olivia Pope says to Cyrus Beene “the kid just gave us the victory” and the president gets reelected. News can make or break you.
This is the thing with the news business, news gets old very fast, what keeps people glued to the TV today, if you keep running it, it will start to lose its appeal. As media lost appeal to Donald Trump’s Mexican rants, so did he. But the polls and exposure for the Trump campaign had received a boost like no other, why stop now. He was looking for his next victim, someone with more numbers.
Would you get more media if you pick on Billions
There are only four types of populations in the world, which have numbers more than a Billion, two countries and two religions.
Donald Trump was ready to show the “real him” on the big worldwide screen. America is mainly a christian dominated country and is one of the prime example of civil liberties. The largest percentage of the voters are also Christians. Picking on a segment this big would be a political suicide. This leaves the choice to only three:
Donald relied on his role model to find the answer:
“I had to find the right kind of victim, and especially one against whom the struggle would make sense, materially speaking. I can assure you that I examined every possible and thinkable solution to this problem, and, weighing every imaginable factor, I came to the conclusion that a campaign against the Muslims would be as popular as it would be successful.”
He finds a way to pick on all three at the same time by picking on Muslims. Chinese and Indians are two of the largest population of Muslims in the world. When he picks on Muslims, more than billion people in the world will pay attention. So will the media around the world. UK media has done excellent coverage for why Trump is wrong and there is even a petition on UK Parliament’s site, which says :
“The signatories believe Donald J Trump should be banned from UK entry”
This petition has been signed by more than 560,450 people. UK Parliament considers all petitions that get more than 100,000 signatures for a debate. So Donald’s plan for more exposure is working on all cylinders.
What are advantages and disadvantage to Trump for picking on Muslims?
more people know about him,
all the people making the noise in UK have no bearing on elections in America.
All the Muslims who are talking about it to each other whilst giving trump more exposure, their say does not count on election day.
None. Muslim population in America is less than 1%.
All the stories are only fueling his ratings to go up. His Republican Party has done nothing to stop him, other than saying few words.
“As a conservative who truly cares about religious liberty, Donald Trump’s bad idea and rhetoric send a shiver down my spine,” South Carolina GOP chairman Matt Moore tweeted. “American exceptionalism means always defending our inalienable rights, not attacking them when it’s politically convenient.”
A lot has been written about this whole mess in the name of politics
what is the solution?
what can be done?
People are upset but feel hopeless “there is nothing much I can do”, is the response from most.
Are you this hopeless? Think Again.
Those who can do something about it are speaking out. Everyone is trying to do their part, they are making public comments in support of minorities, first the Mexicans – he called them “rapists” and “murderers” and now Muslims.
People like :
- Russell Simmons
- Muhammad Ali
- Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
- Our own mayor Boris Johnson
But everything so far just fuels more PR, which is exactly what Donald Trump craves for. He craves attention and uses deceptive tactics in business, like the time he wanted to put homeless people in his building so the existing tenants who were fighting him for rental rights, would move out.
So what can you do?
I’m not Martin Luther king and million man march is a big call for today’s fast paced society, especially when the call is being made by 20 something old Brit, what do us Brits know about ruling? So I won’t make the call for million man march. Instead I would go for this.
Based on what Donald trump said:
1. He is attacking Muslims because he knows: Muslim are less than 1% in USA
2. He is attacking the civil liberty of America itself.
In response two simple things can halt all his ill founded plans.
1. Send a simple email to his campaign, the party and all of his business. The email should simply say who you are and what you do.
Please go Join the movement by Michael Moore on this page on Facebook.
To get an email list for all Trumps businesses, his campaign and the republican party, please join this group :
We are All Muslim group on Facebook.
By joining the group, you will also get pre written templates of emails you can send.
2. Call his campaign, the party and all of his business
Full list of what to say on the call are available on Facebook group:
We are All Muslim
“What will a simple email and less than a minute call will do?”
The power of numbers
The power of numbers. His attack is not only on Muslims but on every person who believes in Civil Liberties. That puts the number of people who are affected by what he said to more than a Billion. Elections are still away but time to do your part is now.
Even if .0001% of the people send an email and or to call, that’s 100 million calls/emails.
What do you think 100 million emails or calls will do to his campaign, to the republicans party and to his businesses?
If you truly take offense to what he said, what is the harm in letting him know?
What are the advantages and disadvantages of this:
Advantages of sending an email and calling :
- He will know how many people are actually affected by his rants.
- His campaign office, which helped start these firry rants, will be too busy putting out the fires they helped started
- His businesses would be affected, money is the bloodline for political campaign
- Other dictators like him will learn, the price of attacking the civil liberties can be huge if those who believe in liberty “stand united”
More press for Donald Trump: But wait, this time press would be covering what the sane people are doing. Which could prompt more sane people to follow the path. More press coverage this gets, higher the percentage of the calls and emails.
Like Mark said:
“we must stand up against attacks on all communities. Even if an attack isn’t against you today, in time attacks on freedom for anyone will hurt everyone.”
When you heard what Trump said against the Mexicans or a Muslim, you didn’t know what to do, that was fine. Now that you do know what to do and if you don’t do anything about it, Civil Liberties don’t matter to you. When attack on freedom hurts you personally, it might just be too late.
At the end i leave you with this quote from a great man:
He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
