Agenda-driven media promotes the worst fear: "I'm a Holocaust survivor – Trump's America feels like Germany before Nazis took over"

triggered-meme
Hyperbole much?
When I was on Facebook and Obama was re-elected, proggies were telling conservatives to calm down. They said, “We survived eight years of Bush, you’ll survive eight years of Obama.”
Apparently now we are facing the next Holocaust…
From Yahoo (via Newsweek): Stephen B. Jacobs has a warning from the past for America today: It’s happening again.
At 79 years old he is among the youngest of the Holocaust survivors still alive. But Jacobs can remember life in the Nazi concentration camp at Buchenwald; what the Nazis did to him, his family, his friends.
He worries about what’s happening right now in America, where he has lived and prospered since arriving a couple of years after Buchenwald’s liberation on April 11, 1945.
The American far-right appears emboldened since the election of President Donald Trump, who led an inflammatory, nationalist campaign. Since then, clashes like the one in Charlottesville are becoming almost commonplace(really, where?).
“Things just go from bad to worse every day,” Jacobs, a successful New York architect who designed the Holocaust memorial at Buchenwald, tells Newsweek. “There’s a real problem growing.”
So much so that Jacobs thinks there’s a “direct parallel” with Germany between the two world wars.
Perhaps more alarming than the far-right getting braver is the seep into mainstream politics of their hate, their talking points, their rhetoric.“It feels like 1929 or 1930 Berlin,” Jacobs says, ahead of Holocaust Remembrance Day 2018 on Thursday.
Things that couldn’t be said five years ago, four years ago, three years ago—couldn’t be said in public—are now normal discourse. It’s totally unacceptable.
“We thought our country had changed. In fact, it didn’t. We were operating on a misconception. ‘My god, we elected a black president in the United States! Look how far we’ve come!’ We haven’t.”
In Trump, Jacobs says, the far-right sees an “enabler.”
“I’m involved with New York real estate, I know this man personally,” says Jacobs, whose eponymous architecture firm celebrated its 50th birthday in 2017. “Trump is an enabler. Trump has no ideas. Trump is out for himself. He’s a sick, very disturbed individual.”
“I couldn’t say that Trump is a fascist because you’ve got to know what fascism is. And I don’t think he has the mental power to even understand it.”
Jacobs calls New York, where he lives, an “island of resistance”. But he says Washington will soon realize too that “fascism has to be resisted.”
“Fascism could have been won in Spain. It could’ve been stopped. But appeasement of fascism is what led to everything,” Jacobs warns.
This is a man who lived what happens when fascism isn’t stopped before it metastasizes.
He was born in Łódź, Poland, in 1939. His father, a physician, moved the family to Piotrków, near Warsaw, shortly after the Nazi invasion of Poland in September of that year. Piotrków, where many Jewish refugees in Poland fled, would become the Nazis’ first ghetto.
Liquidated in 1942, a labor camp was established with two factories, where the family lived until their brutal separation in 1944.
The women—his mother, three aunts and grandmother—were taken to a camp at Ravensbrück. The men—him, his older brother and his father—to Buchenwald. “In my case, you didn’t eat in Buchenwald unless you worked. So I was given an identity card that said I was 16 years old,” Jacobs says. “I was five.”

Mr. Jacobs: Wow. I do believe you are spot on with your comments. EXCEPT you have them directed toward the wrong people group. They should be directed toward the Antifacts, Black Lives Matter, Anti-Gunners, Hit-lie-ery, and all of Obama’s Community Organizer groups. I would say Soros, but then you and him must be kiss ‘n cousins!!!!

Stephan B. Jacobs rhetoric is a symptom of how desperate the Democrats are. Be sure this is just the beginnig. Tom Tillis believes Mueller needs protection. The verman fear Trump will drain their swamp. They have pulled all the stops. Marjorie Stoneman Douglas prevented the state from draining the Everglades. Satanist wish to preserve their swamp. If this is such a bad time for Jews why does Mark Levine support Trump. Trump’s son-in-law is Jewish. These left wing alarmist need to get real. Imagine the freaks think America will take child sex trafficing as normal. I am glad my Dad… Read more »

“would become the Nazis’ first ghetto.”
Corect me if I am wrong, but I believe the eastern jews placed themselves in ghettos centuries before the NSDAP came to Poland. And again some ppl may disagree but there was a difference between Buchenwald and auschwitz II and other camps in Poland

As usual, the Left are engaged in massive psychological projection. They are the ones who’ve been issuing death threats on Trump, assaulting Trump supporters, and outright murders.

If leftists had not rendered the Constitution virtually worthless he could enjoy Matlock reruns in a socialist free world.

I was born at St Vincents Hospital in Bridgeport Ct. I grew up 20 mins north of the city in a small town off of Route 8. After finishing high school and college, I moved to Florida and never looked back. Most of the family and friends I left behind would have no problem with a candidate’s corruption as long as it promoted thier Democratic Agenda. It is very sad to see how the Constitution State has forgotten its roots.

My prev post wss meant for the other thread.
I have family that wont talk to me because I support Trump. I was raised and expected to be a good Democrat . When I started thinking on my own, I realised something was worng, because they did not practice what they preached.
Our political party doesnt define us, our compassion and love of life is what defines us. I see very little love or compassion with those I know to be diehard Democrats.

Wonder what take he would have on georgie soro$$? I think he has his tables turned on him. The left has the persuasive ways of lying and making it stick to the tune that they really believe this garbage. Seems he has been scared by the left more than anything else and they are pointing the fingers at the right so he is lock step to stop what he once new to be bad. So blinded by the dark the light can’t shine if no one stands up for the light.

Holocaustanity has replaced Christianity since 1970s. The greatest event in history is no longer the coming of Christ. What amazes me is how devout Christians receive Zionist brainwashing visiting the so-called Holy Land and return as rabid Zionists lionizing the Jewish state to the skies.

Mr. Jacobs, My heart goes out for all the crimes committed against the Jews, and for you, a survivor is a cross you have borne since you were a small child. The new generations want to “move forward” and the schools are not interested in teaching history -that’s all stuff, right Mr. Jacobs? President Trump is trying to get us forward and

So much bunk, so little time. The truth is WWII is over. The Jews won. We are now run by them. Just look at Syria. A more truthful explanation would be that our parasites sold us to the Jews. Either way, we are where we are. There are just two kinds of people now. Those who want to be Sabot Goy, and those who don’t. Those who want that are called “globalists” (I call them idiots). Those who don’t are called “nationalist” (and a host of other derogatory words). They already have their New World Odor. Did you think they… Read more »

Perhaps Mr. Jacobs would be more comfortable in Israel. He should head over there and enjoy his sunset years amongst those of his equal, not here with us goyim.

This clown Jacobs is telling us what Berlin was like ten years before he was born? A survivor of the concentration camps? My guess he was just like Soros a jew who sold out other jews. If you want to see what fascism is like go to any urban university today.

Let’s be clear from the get-go: I DO NOT deny the Holocaust—that it occurred, or that it was horrible beyond belief. Nor do I deny the ethnocide against Native Americans (that lasted until the 20th Century); Nor do I deny the existence and the horrors of the Gulag Archipelago. Here is the problem. We have ideological parasites who demand on the right to commandeer the public consciousness regarding what we are going to be informed of and what we are going to believe. The Endgame is the annihilation of Christendom, plain and simple. I do not care strictly about the… Read more »
