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.
