First the disabled, now the travellers – who’s next?

Headline in the Guardian this morning “Bank of England voted 9-0 to pump £75bn more into UK economy”. And I thought, it’s as if these buggers had never even heard of the Weimar Republic, which went down the hyperinflation pan thanks to its habit of printing extra money and injecting it into the system.

And, although the Republic finally got its financial act together, it’s widely believed that its problems led directly to the rise to power of a certain Adolph Hitler, and the Nazi Party.

And we all know how well that turned out, with the extermination of the Jews, along with other “undesirables” like the disabled, and Gypsies.

And if you think that could never happen here, just consider the Cameron government’s persecution, demonisation and criminalisation of the chronically sick and disabled, turning us into a class of officially sanctioned hate figures, and making us targets for every passing Daily Mail reading psycho, as evidenced by the rise in violence against disabled people. Our position, right now – and I know I’ve said this before, repeating it doesn’t make it any less true – is analogous to that of the Jews in mid thirties Germany.

And the Gypsies? Well, we’re getting there – as I write, Dale Farm is burning as a community of travellers is forcibly evicted from land that they actually own. True, Cameron didn’t create this situation, but he is complicit in failing to put a stop to it, in the face of international condemnation.

And at this point it might be a good place to stop, and consider Pastor Niemoeller’s famous statement:-

First they came for the communists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Have a nice day – and check on your human rights – you might not have them for much longer in Cameron’s Britain Police State.

    • Hi Apples,

      People forget – or these days just don’t know – but before the pogrom of Kristallnacht, and, eventually, Hitler’s Europe-wide Final Solution, Jews in Germany had their human rights eroded for years, exactly as is happening to us. The government-sponsored hatred is the same too, only the language is different. But while the accents of Eton and Oxford may not be as obviously deranged as the ranting of Hitler, they are no less dangerous. And, in my view, no less insane – how else to explain Cameron’s vicious and seemingly endless campaign against the sick and disabled? As for IDS, he’s just a puppet, manning his lie factory on Cameron’s behalf.

      Anyone who can’t, or won’t, see this should read this, starting at 1933 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kristallnacht#Early_Nazi_persecutions We haven’t reached the extremes of Germany – yet – but if Cameron gets a second term, with a majority, all bets are off.

      Ron.

  1. I’m afraid what you say is depressingly true I am increasingly finding myself exposed to it.
    Is it true that the sky over Libya has finally been killed after 900345678533 bullets were fired into it?
