- In October 1939, Nazi Leader Adolf Hitler issued an order,
written in his own hand, ordering the extermination of those who were considered
"unworthy of life." The order, entitled "The Destruction
of Lives Unworthy of Life," stated that patients "considered
incurable according to the best available human judgment of their state
of health, be accorded a mercy death."
- Hitler's murder spree started with the mentally ill,
the terminally ill, invalids, and the disabled, and eventually spread to
millions of Jews, Gypsies, and other "undesirables"-worked to
death or exterminated in concentration camps.
- This monstrous program was initially sold as an economic
measure: "The economic burden represented by people suffering from
hereditary diseases is a danger for the State and society," Nazi Dr.
Gerhard Wagner said at the Nazi party congress in 1934. The Nazis required
all state institutions to report on patients who were chronically ill,
and used those reports as the basis to decide which patients should be
- Today, the Obama Administration is beginning to descend
down that same road, promising to make the "tough choices" to
cut entitlement programs such as Medicare and Social Security to save money-at
precisely the time in which an increasing number of Americans are forced
to depend on them as the economy slides deeper into Depression. Obama is
willing to spend trillions of dollars to bail out the financial markets,
and pay for it by slashing programs which keep ordinary Americans alive.
- Think we're exaggerating? Take the case of a paper entitled
"What Are the Potential Cost Savings from Legalizing Physician-Assisted
Suicide?" It sounds like something that might have been written by
Jeremy Bentham, or Aldous Huxley, or maybe Nazi doctor Karl Brandt, but
it was actually co-authored in 1998 by "bio-ethicist" Ezekiel
Emanuel, brother of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, a leading
advisor to Obama's budget director Peter Orszag, and a member of the 15-person
Federal Coordinating Council on Comparative Effectiveness Research, the
group which has been designated to prepare the list of which medical procedures
will henceforth be permitted, and which will not. Emanuel's co-author,
Margaret Battin, has written other papers promoting suicide and selective
refusal of medical treatment. The pair are really just echoing Karl Brandt's
defense of euthanasia at Nuremberg: "Death can mean deliverance. Death
is life-just as much as birth. It was never meant to be murder." But
- "The Hitler program has been revived by the Obama
Administration," warned Lyndon LaRouche. "This is straight Nazi
stuff. It's not a quibble; it's not an interpretation. This is a direct
copy of the philosophy of the Nazis. You cannot duck that issue. This is
Nazi stuff, and it's explicit. We know all this stuff from Hermann Goering
and so forth in the 1920s, and after that with their international connections,
like certain Wall Street firms. We have been warned, and we act accordingly.
People who condone this are criminals, because they either knew, or should
have known, what they are doing. They either knew, or should have known."
- "This is mass murder," LaRouche said. "Obama
has adopted Hitler's program. There is no reason to hold one's tongue.
When the President of the United States has adopted Hitler's program, that's
the time to unleash. This is exactly what I warned about on April 11th
in my webcast. Obama has a Nero complex. Obama is the new Nero. This is
exactly what is happening. This is Hitler's policy now being echoed by
Obama. Let's not allow any compromise. You have to attack this directly.
He has adopted Hitler's genocidal health policy."
- - Outlaw the HMOs -
- One instrumentality of this Nazi policy is the health
insurance sector, led by the pharmaceutical companies and the Health Maintenance
Organization companies. HMOs, which were started during the Nixon Administration,
are the health-care equivalent of an Enron, a vehicle inserting a financial
middleman between doctor and patient, for the purposes of jacking up the
costs while reducing the quality of health-care delivered. The main role
of the HMO sector is to break the control of doctors over health care,
and transfer control to corporate cartels.
- HMOs make their profits by siphoning off some of the
cash flow intended for treatment of patients, and thus reducing the amount
of money available for health care. The more they cut the care, the more
left for them. But the money is only part of it. The real goal of this
health system is to increase the death rate by depriving citizens of proper
health care measures. Ultimately, the HMOs are part of the Anglo-Dutch
financial empire's genocide machine.
- The first step in restoring proper health care in this
nation is to repeal the law which allowed HMOs to be created. Only after
that, can the solutions be implemented. "Don't accept any discussion
or dialogue on Social Security and such issues," LaRouche advised.
"First we have to reduce the costly mismanagement of health care by
these insurance companies, by eliminating the HMOs. This will eliminate
the biggest factor of waste in the health care system. The HMOs just took
over and replaced Hill-Burton. There's no way of compromising on that;
you have to be absolutely ruthless. The HMO is a parasite; there's no question
about it. This is all criminal, and we have to deal with it as a crime.
- "Either we get these guys out now, or there's no
chance: mass death occurs," LaRouche continued. "That's what
happened with Hitler. There were Jewish communities that also said: 'Look,
don't fight it; it will go away.' It's the same thing today."
- That view also applies to the menagerie of fascist "behavioral
economists" surrounding Obama, LaRouche said. "These guys have
to go. Because either these guys are going to go, or the President is going
to go. And the President has to think through that choice, because the
American people are not going to put up with this crap. These guys are
going to find that the American people are going to say to the President:
'You get rid of these guys, or we get rid of you.'"
- - Imperial Fascism -
- This open push for Nazi-style fascism should not be a
surprise, since the Nazis and the other fascist movements of the 1920s
and 1930s were created by the financiers of the Anglo-Dutch Liberal empire
for the express purpose of breaking the power of the nation-states, and
taking the world back to a modernized variation of medieval feudalism.
Though the fascist movements suffered defeat in World War II (thanks largely
to FDR and America's industrial might), the financier interests behind
Hitler and Mussolini remain, and, as the current bailout travesty shows,
they still hold enormous power.
- Under Obama, just as under Bush, the government is spending
huge amounts of money to try to save the values of the fictitious assets
which dominate the global financial system. So far, some $13 trillion has
been given, lent, promised, or guaranteed, in what has been repeatedly
shown to be an open-ended process. Despite the Federal government's budget
deficit, the money keeps on flowing, ever faster.
- When it comes to the welfare of the population, however,
the tune changes dramatically, to "cut, cut, cut." We're going
to have to slash Social Security, slash Medicare, slash all sorts of other
spending to bring our budget under control, we are told. Money for the
bailout, money for the wars, but nothing for the people-who are the nation.
- This is pure fascism. We are headed down the road to
Hell, led by a Pied Piper of a President who, whatever he may think, will
destroy us all unless we force him to change course.
