Dividing America – Establishing a Common Enemy
In a political party that has come unleashed since the election of Barack Obama, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) provides still another example of the over the top lies of Democrats, made with a straight-face. We all know that we should not use Hitler analogies. Still, it is wise to understand history and to recognize when an all-out effort is underway to give the illusion of a common, dangerous enemy, as Hitler did with the Reichstag fire in 1933. These are the words of Congresswoman Waters in 2012.
“On Immigration policy and reform they [Republicans] are on the wrong side of the track… They would have you believe that if they get into office, they are going to make sure that they are going to get rid of everyone in our society who was not born in America. They’re not about civil and human rights.”[i]
The words here, are Water’s and not Obama’s. Yet, there is a striking similarity to this and the phrases uttered by Obama about Hispanic parents being harassed when they take their kids out for ice cream and the need for Hispanic voters to “punish our enemies.” Either this over the top rhetoric is hardwired into Democrats, or they are taking cues from – and marching in lockstep with their leader.
