Muslims are killing other Muslims, blowing up planes, trains, and nightclubs, threatening to wipe Israel off the map, warning the Pope that if he comes to Turkey he will be killed, and promising to take over the world and force everyone to bow before Allah in a convert-or-die evangelistic thrust. So when I saw a full-page advertisement in the September 20, 2006 issue of USA Today warning America about an impending ominous threat and the globe in flames, I naturally thought that we were about to be given a heads-up on this global Islamo-fascist jihad. Boy was I wrong.

It seems that the real threat to America and the world is conservatives, and in particular, conservative Christians. The ad warns, among other things, that

“YOUR GOVERNMENT is moving each day closer to a theocracy, where a narrow and hateful brand of Christian fundamentalism will rule.”

“YOUR GOVERNMENT suppresses science that doesn’t fit its religious, political and economic agenda, forcing present and future generations to pay a terrible price.”

“YOUR GOVERNMENT is moving to deny women here, and all over the world, the right to birth control and abortion.”

“YOUR GOVERNMENT enforces a culture of greed, bigotry, intolerance and ignorance.”

People look at all of this and think of Hitler—and rightly so.

The ad was sponsored by “The World Can’t Wait” campaign. The usual list of suspects—Ed Asner, Ed Begley Jr., Harry Belafonte, Ward Churchill, Niles Eldredge, Daniel Ellsberg, Jane Fonda, Jesse Jackson, Cynthia McKinney, Sean Penn, Al Sharpton, Cindy Sheehan, Martin Sheen, Gloria Steinman, Gore Vidal, Maxine Waters, Cornel West, Howard Zinn, and many more—are calling on people everywhere to walk out of school, take off work, and come to the downtowns and townsquares to go through the streets to call on many more to join them to make the following statement: “NO! THIS REGIME DOES NOT REPRESENT US! AND WE WILL DRIVE IT OUT!”

A couple of things jumped out at me. Nearly everyone on the list of endorsers is probably a millionaire, and yet they have the audacity to talk about “greed.” If they are so concerned about greed in America, then let them give their millions away to the poor and the downtrodden who they claim are getting a raw deal in America.

Then there’s the accusation of “intolerance.” Wanting to drive people out doesn’t seem that tolerant to me. Their indignation about the lack of tolerance in others is laughable and insulting. Of course, in a feeble attempt to add the coup de grâce to their already hysterical accusations, they bring in the trusty argument-killer: “They’re just like Adolf Hitler!”

These malcontents should be reminded that it was Hitler who suppressed the Christian message and imprisoned pastors who spoke out against the Nazi regime. Abortion was legalized in America in 1973. That means before 1973, abortion was illegal. Why are Christians against abortion? Because abortion kills a preborn baby. Could these overpaid nincompoops, with too much time on their hands and money in their bank accounts, have made a similar claim back then? Did America’s anti-abortion views in the post-War World II years make anyone think of Hitler? They will claim that Hitler supported abortion. This is true. But not for “pure blood” Aryan women. He was more than happy to allow the mongrel “races” to abort their children. After the war, the War Crimes Tribunal indicted ten Nazi leaders for “encouraging and compelling abortion,” which the Tribunal considered a “crime against humanity.”[1]

So on October 5th, when these nut balls are in the streets calling for “the end of this regime,” keep doing your work. The thing they really hate is to be ignored.

This program was carried out in part by Encouraging and compelling abortions on Eastern workers for the purposes of preserving their working capacity as slave labor and of weakening Eastern nations. . . . Preventing marriages and hampering reproduction of enemy nationals.” (See “Trials of War Criminals,” Nuremberg Military Tribunal [Washington, DC: USGPO, 4:610]
