"The National Government will regard it as its first and foremost duty to revive in the nation the spirit of unity and cooperation. It will preserve and defend those basic principles on which our nation has been built. It regards Christianity as the foundation of our national morality, and the family as the basis of national life."
Adolf Hitler
(1889-1945) German Nazi Dictator
My New World Order, Proclamation to the German Nation at Berlin, February 1, 1933

That sounds very familiar...scary
 -- Robert, Sarasota     
    Morality and the family have been decimated in recent years.

    On its face, the quote's concept is good, but in reality and practice, it was an absoulte propaganda lie. Almost as many Christians were murdered as Jews. The current fascists / socialists -conservatives / liberals - Republican / Democrats are continuing in Hitler's foot steps. Besides that stated above, the current Hitler(s) have caused a national disaster, focused hatred on a specific people, and broaden the scope of fear to all 'invading' aliens (all from an authoritative unconstitutional and de facto position within a democratic oligarchy). And yes Robert, it sounds very familiar and scary.

    I wonder how many Americans would agree with this quote had the speaker been unknown. There are so many things wrong with this quote, I do not know where to begin. The most glaring is the blatant attempt at nationalist uniformity using Chrisitanity as the cover. It is practices like this that give Christians a bad name. If GWB issued such a statement today, he would be praised.

    Surprise! Another politician that said what he didn't believe for political purposes. Also, Hitler didn't give Christianity a bad name. In fact, they don't have a bad name, exept to certain bigotted individuals.

    Isn't it typical that anything attributed to Hitler is given a thumbs down. This quote doesn't sound too different from what most Western politicians say today, yesterday or 150 years ago. Sound familiar -- just look at the US in Iraq.
     -- Alexander, Vancouver, Canada     
    Hilter wasn't the first nor was he the last to say these kind of words. Nationalism is a two-edged sword -- it cuts both ways. Too much is not a good thing. Tolerance should be the order of the day.
     -- David, Toronto     
    Sounds too much like the hate spewed by today's King George...

    Hitler should of won world war 2

    Great quote. Shows how he used the lie well. He didn't care about religion or family but he knew that his victims did.
     -- warren, olathe     
    Hitler quotes are consistently great. I don't get why he is always getting a thumbs down from most people. His quotes teach much about us and our weaknesses. If you love freedom you do yourself a disservice if you ignore people like Hitler and Stalin. If you do not know how they skillfully used power and propaganda you will fall for it yourself.

    "Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or the free exercise thereof." This seems like a sound law. So why is religion such a big part of politics?

    The 1st Amendment was to keep the state out of religion, not religion out of the state.

    The white race is the only race that has every accomplished anything of worth. If the Americans hadn't brought black people to the USA as slaves then they would still be living in mud and stick huts like most of them do today. And as for the illegal aliens invading America, they should be shot and treated as an invading force. even Canada would put a stop to it, as would any other country. If the united states is over run with non-whites, it shall fall. Just like every other country that has had mixed races. That is what Hitler was trying to stop. The white race is the race who invited everything we use today, electricity, computers, Internet, cars, planes, ect. Africa never even invented arrows heads that can be used more then once. Mexico had their pyramids which they used to murder hundreds of people a day by ripping their hearts out while they still lived. Egypt was ruled by white people aswell, all mummys have blonde or red hair. Their paintings have blue eyes. Their empire fell because they started mixing races with blacks. And now they are extinct. In a hundred years, white people shill be no more if the current rate of race mixing continues.
     -- Sieg, Heil     
    Africa for the Africans. Asia for the Asians. White countries for everybody. White Americans were fighting for the wrong side during WW2
