President Roosevelt Exposes Republicans For Using Hitler's ‘Big Lie' Strategy

The growing disconnect between the Right Wing and reality becomes more evident every day, as the Romney campaign continues to feed lies to the American public - like "Obama stole $700 billion from Medicare", or "Obama wants to restrict military voting" or "Obama eliminated the work requirement for welfare", and of course the ever popular "Obama is going to take everyone's guns away". They've also never gotten the fact that "Agenda 21" is not a vast conspiracy to impose a New World Order but simply an advisory panel on the global environment. Franklin Roosevelt, the man who got us out of the Great Depression and led the Allies to victory in World War II, saw the Big Lie for what it was long before Karl Rove came along.

Article excerpt follows:

President Roosevelt Exposes Republicans For Using Hitler's ‘Big Lie' Strategy
August 22, 2012
By Teeluck Sooknarine

Have you noticed that Republicans lie over and over about things that the whole world knows to be the opposite of what they say it is? Well there is a very real reason why they lie so much and why they all repeat the same lie, at the same time, over and over. Have you noticed how big Republicans' lies are? President Roosevelt explained in detail why the Republicans lie so much, telling such big lies and why they tell that lie [whatever the lie of the day is] over and over. It was the strategic instructions of Hitler himself in his book ‘Mein Kampf.'

Hitler's strategy was simply don't tell a small lie, because the larger and more outrageous the lie is then the easier it will overwhelm the person being lied to. They will come away with the opinion that the lie is so huge that it can't possibly be a lie…of course there are only a few people who will believe the lie in the first place…they are the people too biased and lazy to find out the true information. This is the Republican base…

Here is the video of FDR telling the truth about the Republicans and Hitler's strategy, the video is courtesy of Thom Hartmann and The Big Picture RT:

    The bumper sticker every Democracy-Loving American should be sporting is:

    "Republicans must Lie and Cheat to Win Elections!"

    RepubliCONS' oft-heard remark: "Both Partys do it!" When it comes to Cheating and the Big Lie...they are the clear and overwhelming winners. The remark that "nearly 50% of Americans pay no taxes" leaves the voter with the impression that 50% of Americans are taking advantage of the "System". Let's take a look at their lie about who is "taking advantage of the system" and how they are cheating the system.

    The wealthy and the corporations have a myriad of think-tanks and organizations that are buying up our democracy and rigging the system to their advantage. Here's the plan:

    1. To take advantage of the tax code and tax system, they pay for thousands of lobbyists and Grover Norquist to have Repubican US politicians do their bidding. ("No new taxes!")

    2. To take advantage of eliminating those dastardly rules and regs, they pay thousands of lobbyists to buy US Republican legislators to do their bidding. ("No regs needed!")

    3. To take advantage and hopefully purchase the next election, they meet with the CONservative members of the Supreme Court at CON conventions to write a historic and undemocratic ruling on the financing of our elections. ...

    4. To take advantage of the polling places and rig the system, they spent $$Millions at the state level to purchase 11- RepubliCON controlled state legislators, who implemented voter suppression laws in the guise of "preventing rampant voter fraud". Don't believe it.

    5. Paul Ryan gave the most LIE-filled VP speech in history: Medicare, Janesville GM plant, Federal Deficit without his role on the federal deficit by voting for all of GW Bush's big deficit-busters and his role on the Simpson/Bowles Commission, Obama hasn't created jobs but the RepubliCON House refused to bring Obama's job program to the floor.

    6. Mitt Romney has McCain and Condi Rice give his hawkish defense speech to take advantage of his own failure to speak to our troops, the war, and the defense of America.

    7. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are the candidates that Wall Street, the 1%, and the Corporations have purchased to hopefully TAKE ADVANTAGE of the other 99% of us.

    Become informed and stop listening to the LIES.

    Hmmmm? Kinda think both the parties play this game quite a bit. If you keep repeating the lis over and over enough times people will eventually start to believe it. Kinda like the Little Big Horn (Battle of the Greasy Grass) was a massacre rather than a battle fought to avoid one or that the Battle of Wounded Knee (Massacre at Wounded Knee) wasn't a massacre perpetrated by the US MIlitary against helpless and defenseless women, children and old people.

    I don't disagree with you, but the focus right now is on the 2012 campaign. This country has a long and varied history of political corruption, propaganda and disinformation, but the current threat comes entirely from the far Right, and while we may condemn the way the Battle of Wounded Knee was "remembered", it has no impact on the 2012 Presidential race.

    And most Democrats won't even acknowledge the recession from '37 to '38. On March 4th, 1933, unemployment in the US stood at nearly 25%. On 1 September 1939, it stood at 19%. Improving from 1 American in 4 being unemployed to 1 American in 5 without a job over a six and a half year period is no success story.

    Anyone can play games with statistics, but the FACT is that this nation was turned around by 1934. The recovery stumbled a little in 36-37 because of (hey what a coincidence) a conservative activist Supreme Court majority that struck down the NRA and a number of other New Deal programs BECAUSE they were working so well. It was only when Hughes realized that striking down social security, which was the next item on the conservative agenda, would have collapsed the entire economy all over again, that he repudiated the conservatives (kind of like Roberts upholding the Health Care Reform Law - he knew that letting the Right Wing strike it down with no legitimate constitutional basis would be a total disaster for our economy.)

    You also totally ignore the fact that unemployment is not the only measure of an economy. Roosevelt also managed to create the Tennessee Valley Authority, which provided safe drinking water and cheap electricity to half the South, the AAA, which planted millions of trees and averted another "dust bowl", the PWA, that built thousands of the schools you now want to tear down, along with hospitals, bridges, roads, and all of the other things that brought us into the 20th Century.

    Government spending is the only sensible way to end a depression, as FDR and President Obama have proved, or the only way to avoid one, as Ronald Reagan proved. It's the direct opposite of keeping people dependent on the government - it's the process of giving people the opportunity to be self-sufficient. THAT is why the Republicans block every job creation bill that comes along - they WANT the poor to remain poor. They don't WANT any American to have the opportunity for a quality education that will enable them to get a decent job and not need any government assistance.

    And by the way, the United States led the rest of the world OUT of the Great Depression, not the other way around. It's difficult to quantify all of the details given the rise of Hitler and the shifting of the German economy to one based entirely on supporting an aggressive war, but facts are facts.

    You're even more full of it than usual. Try garnering some education for yourself instead of merely regurgitating the left-wing talking points you so love to cut and paste.

    The United States DID NOT lead the rest of the world out of the Depression. While recovery in the US didn't begin until 1993, it had begun in India in 1931, and several countries in Europe by 1932, including The United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, and Sweden, as well as Argentina in South America and Japan in Asia. Sweden had fully recovered by 1934. It's also interesting how the Left always overlooks Roosevelt's recession from 1938 to 1937.

    "You also totally ignore the fact that unemployment is not the only measure of an economy." -- What a BS Statement that is! When nearly 1/5th of your nation doesn't have a job, it's a pretty damned good indication of just how effective your policies are. I'm sure such nedulous rhetoric was a real comfort to those that had nothing to eat.

    Unemployment in the US fell to 17.2 % in 1939 and 14.6 % in 1940 after war broke out in Europe and American industry began to crank up and convert to military production.

    No one was better at the Big Lie theory than Gingrich. It was great fun watching him attempt to seduce Americans during the primaries. He unabashedly encouraged other candidates to lie with him. "Hey, let's tell them we are are the party of paychecks and they are the party of food stamps. Yeah, let's tell them that. " And so, they did. Their intention isn't to inform, but to deceive

    Nonsense. Republican presidents have a worse record on job creation going back to Herbert Hoover and the onset of the Great Depression. And the worst record since World War II was racked up by George Bush and the Republican Congress. Manufacturing lost one in four jobs under Bush as the president remained ignorant of the China challenge and his advisers claimed that off-shoring -- multinationals moving jobs abroad -- was good for America. Then came the worst downturn since the Great Depression, with the economy in freefall, losing 750,000 jobs a month by the time Barack Obama was sworn in. ( Chicago SunTimes). Obama has created more jobs in the recession than Bush created in eight years in office. Republicans aren't the party of paychecks; they are the party of pink slips and red ink.

    Yet, here is Willard, trying to sell Americans that he can " get the the economy up and running in no time". Twelve of his advisors are from the GWB era... and we have already seen what a fine job they did of getting the economy up and running in no time. Been there, Done that.

    That's not true. While there was a strong isolationist movement in the United States, Roosevelt wanted us to get involved as early as 1939. In fact, it was the Republicans who blocked us from getting involved until Pearl Harbor and some, including Charles Lindbergh, actually supported Hitler and said we should let him do whatever he wants in Europe.

    Both parties were against the war, including Roosevelt. They did NOT believe reports of the atrocities coming out of Europe. But, then, you often attempt to rewrite history, don't you.

    And let's add Joseph P. Kennedy to that list of Hilter supporters and, as Ambassador for the US to the UK, passed secrets to and was forced to resign his position and return to the US in late 1940 to avoid prosecution (politics was a bit 'nicer' in those days). Remember, there is a UK side to the Kennedy 'story.'

    No, they didn't quote the President, they Breitbarted him. The actual headline was "Obama doesn't take SEAL Group Attacks Seriously" and concerned the latest round of swift boat ads trying to pretend that the President had nothing to do with taking out bin Laden. Fox's headline was "Obama takes on Navy Seals: "I don't take these folks too seriously."" They took Obama's words, which were condemning propaganda political attacks, and deliberately made it seem like the President was insulting our brave Navy SEALS.

    http://www.sodahead.com/unite...

    This is the same crap the Right Wing tried to pull with the "you didn't build that" Breitbarting. They took a statement the President made about how a government infrastructure is built by all of us and helps businesses to succeed and tried to turn it into Obama claiming that a successful businessman gets no credit for his business' success.

    FDR was right. And the current Right Wing seems to only be lacking the armbands.
