Phyllis Schlafly, is an leader among the Christian conservatives, hosting programs on Christian radio, and is the founder of the Eagle Forum. Janet Porter is founder of Faith 2 Action. Both sit as co-chairs for the How To Take Back America group.
At the ‘How To Take Back America Conference’ last weekend, conservative speaker Kitty Werthmann (president of the South Dakota chapter of the Eagle Forum) led a workshop called “How to recognize living under Nazis & Communists.” She told of the immediate parallels between Nazi Germany and the U.S. of today, noting that Hitler, who acted “like an American politician,” was “elected in a 100% Christian nation.” She failed to mention that Hitler had large support among the conservative Christians in Germany, further failing to mention neither the rampant Antisemitism or militarism and skipped completely the dark and deep depression caused by an unjust settlement at the end of WWI which helped to birth Hitler’s movement; however, Werthmann explained how universal healthcare (which was first mentioned by Teddy Roosevelt at the beginning of the last century), an Equal Rights Amendment (which was killed in the 70’s), and increased taxes (which has happened with nearly every President) were connections to Nazism.
She went on to say,
If we had our guns, we would have fought a bloody battle to the last person. So, keep your guns, and buy more guns, and buy ammunition. […] Take back America. Don’t let them take the country into Socialism. And I refer again, Hitler’s party was National Socialism. […] And that’s what we are having here right now, which is bordering on Marxism.
She obviously has no idea what Marxism is, but she went on to note that her speeches on this subject are gaining in popularity.
I say that Schlafly has endorsed a bloody revolution, because Werthmann is her lieutenant. Further, Schlafly has not rebuked Werthmann for this language. Whether active or passive, this is endorsement. Again, I have not been kidding when I note that a few, and more everyday, claiming the banner of Christ are urging detrimental action. I agree with Werthmann, that we do have parallels with pre-Nazi Germany. How do you think Hitler came to power? Christian leaders in Germany supported Hitler because he wanted to return Germany to her ‘Christian heritage.’ Coups were advocated, by Christians. Actions were performed by civilians, many of them Christians for the sake of ‘taking Germany back.’
I note that this article by John Perry was removed by Newsmax, however, it is telling of the times,
Imagine a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution through an interim administration that would do the serious business of governing and defending the nation. Skilled, military-trained, nation-builders would replace accountability-challenged, radical-left commissars. Having bonded with his twin teleprompters, the president would be detailed for ceremonial speech-making.
Military intervention is what Obama’s exponentially accelerating agenda for “fundamental change” toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama’s radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.
Unthinkable? Then think up an alternative, non-violent solution to the Obama problem. Just don’t shrug and say, “We can always worry about that later.”
Oh, and these same people have declared that he, contrary to ALL the evidence otherwise, that Obama is a Muslim
As a Christian, and as American, I urge you to pray for our President, and our Country, and to start to speak out against those who would Christianity, either the word or using it as a platform, to urge such things as what you have seen above. While this article might not make me as popular as I would want, the truth is simple: we are in trouble and heading down a dark road.
