It’s almost creepy, but I like it

Once again Chris Muir’s Day By Day comic strip echoes something I said in yesterday’s post on Obama’s new Forward! slogan. This has happened a fair number of times before. Great minds thinking alike, or a call for Captain Obvious, or just another pure coincidence? I’m not sure, but I like the idea that my ideas are being picked up and spread around. Or that they occur to lots of other people. That makes me feel part of a bigger group and less extreme. More normal. Which is a nice feeling in today’s seriously left-leaning world. Day By Day runs on the sidebar of a whole lot of VRWC blogs. You go Muir!

Godwin’s Law is one of those humorous Internet “rules” that we see all the time. It says that in any debate, the person who first calls the other one a Nazi loses (or generally drags the Nazis into the debate). But the law only applies when the analogy is false. In this case, the steps from the Red rallying cry Forward! to the gates of the camps are not that many, and in a straight line. More so, given that we all saw that video a couple of years back where some guy who had snuck into the Weather Underground inner sanctum of Obama’s friend, neighbor, and ghost writer Bill Ayers, and related Ayers’ plans for re-education/elimination camps for huge swaths of the population. And that kind of plan is Nazism of the highest order.

“Arbeit Macht Frei” is a wonderful phrase in it’s original context, because Work really does Set You Free. Free from want, free from poverty. Free from powerless serfdom. And from there, via the opportunity for education that comes with a level of success greater than bare existence, eventually free from the dull-witted world of animals and into the enlightened world of civilized humanity. But of all the cliches co-opted and corrupted by the Left - and the Nazis were an extremely Left Wing bunch, regardless of what today’s Leftists would have you believe (Nazism is only Right Wing if your concept of “center” is totalitarian communism) - that it has pretty much become the Ultimate Lie. Not because the phrase itself is wrong. Because these words were hung over the main gates of the Nazi death camps in WWII.

When you wave the Red Banner and take as your own the slogans of tyranny and urge the people Forward! on the road to “Progress” ... that road leads to Hell ... and the camps are just a few semantic steps along the way.  Granted that Muir is commenting on an utterly unconstitutional bill of Harry Reid’s that passed in the Senate the other day, wherein people who are behind in their taxes will have their passports revoked - without due process - and thus not be allowed to leave the country. You don’t introduce such a bill unless your ideology is already so far left that it’s over the “normal” American horizon. And instead of being laughed at, mocked, and deservedly tarred and feathered, the rest of the Senate supports you and passes the bill more than just along party lines ... proof that the ideology is rampant in that chamber of our government. Godwin’s Law does not apply here. The Nazi allusion is correct.

We need more than a new McCarthy. We need a purge. We need a new government. Top down.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
