Gott Mitt Uns: From Nazi to Neocon

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. In the first stage of life the mind is frivolous and easily distracted, it misses progress by failing in consecutiveness and persistence. This is the condition of children and barbarians, in which instinct has learned nothing from experience."
--George Santayana, The Life of Reason, Volume 1, 1905

Gott mitt uns - God with us - was the claim of Hitler's Germany. So much has been written about this premise and its evil consequences, but have we truly learned anything?

Indeed, from its inception our nation has struggled to determine how much, if any, acknowlegdement of GOD should be allowed publicly. The same issues plague us from one generation to the next; prayer or saying God or Jesus in the school, or displaying religious symbols in public; child birth issues, and homosexuality and the family.

A casual observer might think that these are the only relevant topics worthy of attention. After all, simply throwing money and bags of rice to impoverished nations, constantly beset by corporate imperialistic fantasies, should squelch that growling in their bellies as well as assauge the conscience of the typical churchgoer. Is this really the 'command of Christ', is this what HE taught us or is this the doctrine of man? Does this really replicate the love and preciousness of the very life that GOD created?

I think it's time we took a closer look at it, but let us look with eyes wide open rather than with the eyes of the 'christian zionist'. Where did it all start? How did this belief come into existence and how has it morphed into its current state? Let's look.

After reading this artcle about the strange relationship between zionism and the church I began to do some research on Mr. Scofield. It would seem that not only was he a charlatan but he was an instrument of change. Mr. Scofield was credited with writing a 'new' translation of the Bible. The major difference with this 'bible' was that it laid the foundation for the acceptance and promotion of a zionist state and it introduced 'dispensationalism' as a new doctrine. 'Dispensationalism' is the belief that 'christians' will be 'raptured' away before the battle of Armageddon. It also believes that their support of any form of 'israel' must be the express 'will of 'god' regardless of whether that entity actually obeys the laws of Moses or not.

This 'new' doctrine was introduced through deception and became the most widely accepted interpretation of scripture to date. It is the foundation upon which ALL of the current churches base their doctrine. Samuel Untermeyer, one of the leading figures of the zionist movement both in America and in Europe, used Scofield unwittingly to develop his plan to subvert Christian doctrine. He was a major influence in the 18th Zionist Congress which voted to nix the 'Jewish Boycott' in 1932 because it might unduly prejudice needed Nazi support for their 'transfer' of zionism to Palestine.

This afternoon I watched "With God on Our Side: George W. Bush and the Rise of the Religious Right in America". It discusses the evolution of the 'religious right' into a political entity. The 'players' in this film are: James Robison, Billy Graham, Tim LaHaye, Pat Robertson, and Jerry Falwell.

Tim LaHaye is the co-author of the Left Behind series that is so popular with the 'mainstream christian church' today. Its basic premise is the teaching of the dispensationalist rapture and the events that surround it.

Billy Graham has been the figurehead of the evangelical movement for the last 50 years. He is a reputed mason and has consistently supported presidents that were caught in various scandals. It would seem that he has greatly enjoyed his popularity and the crowds with whom he associated while ignoring the truth that U.S. corporatism is the source of many of third world nations's woes.

Pat Robertson was a one time candidate for the presidency, that is until G.W.'s daddy had about enough of him. With the help of certain clandestine elements Mr. Bush decimated Robertsons' popularity, which eclipsed Bush Sr.'s early in the campaign. I am speaking, of course, of the Baker scandal that crushed the reputation of televangelists at the most opportune time. Needless to say Bush won by a landslide. He has called for the assassination of Hugo Chavez, claimed Ariel Sharon's stroke was judgement from 'god' for pulling out of Gaza, and is a staunch supporter of the actions of 'israel'.

Jerry Falwell was the founder of the 'moral majority', he also took control over Heritage USA after Bakker had been deposed during his scandal. He has made such claims as: 9/11 was punishment from 'god' for paganism, abortionists, and 'alternate lifestyles' and 'Tinky Winky' is code for 'gay'. Most importantly though is the Anti-Defamation League and its leader, Abraham Foxman have expressed strong support for Jerry Falwell's staunch pro-Israel stand, and the 'christian zionist' movement he commands.

Relatively new to the scene is the man called John Hagee who is pulling out all the stops in his push to align the entire American church with the goals of 'israel'. This final move toward unification of State and Church will create a 'one world religion' based on the perversion initiated by Untermeyer and blindly carried on, to this very day.

Falwell said of former President Jimmy Carter,

"His message of peace and reconciliation under almost all circumstances is simply incompatible with Christian teachings as I interpret them. This 'turn the other cheek' business is all well and good but it's not what Jesus fought and died for. What we need to do is take the battle to the Muslim heathens and do unto them before they do unto us."
He made the following statement in the movie concerning Ronald Reagan,
"We have a president elect who has said,'I will work to return America to that position of #1 in the world in military might for the cause of freedom and peace".
He then goes on to postulate in an interview given on September 30, 2002,
"I think Muhammad was a terrorist. I read enough by both Muslims and non-Muslims, [to decide] that he was a violent man, a man of war.
Hey Jerry!! That's some violent 'savior' you have there or haven't you noticed? IF Christ's message of peace is 'incompatible' with anything, it would be this heretical doctrine that is being spewed by you and your thugs. Maybe he is unfamiliar with the writings and speeches of Martin Luther King Jr. who said,
"A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death."
Falwell also said this about George W. Bush's 'election':
"I think the prayers of a lot of people tipped that election. I really believe that with all my heart."
Maybe he needs to watch this concerning the program writer that admitted creating a backdoor to the vote counting software used on Diebold machines, or familiarize himself with the improprieties recorded in Florida in 2000 and Ohio, and other places in 2004. Attributing a hijacked election to the will of the 'Almighty' is just another example of how perverted 'christianity' has become.

Later in the film he says the following:
"Condoleeza Rice is a 'bible teacher', most people don't know that." [And,]
"John Ashcroft is a 'preacher of the gospel' and a dynamic 'christian' and a most respected church member."
Those are some scary things to consider, but when you realize that these are the 'preachers and prophets' of this 'religion of the state' it becomes apparent what the goal of their dogma is. They are the instruments on which this grossly negligent concerto is played.

In fact, there has been a unification of church and state that has gradually crept in over the last 20 years. Although, at times, it has been almost imperceptible, the transition is nearing completion. The final results will be a doctrine of hate and racism, elitism and false superiority - one that rejects the needs of the poor and widow, denies justice, and makes profane all sense of morality. It is based on a misperception on their part that the deeds they carry out are sanctioned by the Creator, when instead it is spawned by something sinister and wicked. These men are 'wolves in sheep's clothing' and support liars and theives 'men that call themselves Jews but they are liars. They are of the synagogue of satan.'

Constantly we hear the voices of people demanding separation of church and state, yet before our very eyes we see a melding of the two in a manner that is sure to make us all rue the day that we remained silent. There is no changing the course they are on. But, conscience dictates that we recognize what they're doing and resist conforming to their so-called 'religion' that makes a mockery of what is holy and righteous.

Perhaps most ironically, at the end of the film, Falwell quotes Proverbs 29:2
When the righteous are in authority the people rejoice,
but when the wicked rule the people groan.

and groan . . .

and groan . . .

and groan . . .

and groan . . .

and groan . . .

So while these people in foreign lands groan under the oppression of the 'coalition of the willing', 'christian zionists' wait until they will be whisked away to paradise to forever be with their 'lord' and 'savior'. Not in this lifetime.

Listen, FUCK nations. FUCK the whole idea of nationality, of nationalism, of "my country is better than your country". Nationalism is one of mankind's greatest evils, and it is an idea that has been deliberately fostered by the Plutocracy in order to get people to sign up and die for things they believed in but fucking well SHOULDN'T have. HOw many underage kids lied during WW2 in order to go and fight (and die) for "their country"? The only thing their country every gave them was the chance to die in it's name, literally nothing else.

And you know what? FUCK religion too. Fuck ALL religions. If you want to worship God, or Allah, or Jehovah, or fucking Buddha, or whoever or whatever, go do it in the privacy of your own home, in your own heart, and don't shove your (oft erroneous) beliefs on the rest of us. I personally couldn't give a flying FUCK for any religion, and nor could I give a flying FUCK for any nation, including "my own". What bollocks! My country didn't beget me, my mother did. My country didn't feed me, my struggling father did. So stick your ideas of nationality and nationalism up your arse!

"Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country". Go fuck off and drop dead! The people who say these kind of things are the people who send others off to die, they are NEVER the people who actually go themselves. These are all concepts the Elite DO NOT BELIEVE IN - if they don't believe them, why the FUCK should you or I?

Incidentally, it's Gott Mitt Uns, not Unds.

You obviously missed the point of the post. Personally I can't 'make you' believe anything nor do I want to.
I am merely presenting information. Do what you want with it. You don't like it, don't read it.
BTW thank you for the correction I will take care of it.

KSD; sorry, the rant wasn't directed at you - it was directed at the establishment. Your article was well thought out, and I agree with it's central points. They were just pissing me off, that's all.

ksdrover; Thanks for the link to "With God On Our Side". Since I lived through everything portrayed in it, it is twice as nauseating to me now, to view it in retrospect. I could only stand watching a half hour of it and I had a sudden urge to vomit. But since you obviously have a stronger stomach, I would urge that if that didn't make you barf, you can probably stand to read Carol Valentines' classic "Merry Christmas and Off With Your Head" which should serve due notice that the 'Christian Zionism' of which you speak has indeed morphed into a real and present monstrosity. When you get to the 'NAUGAHYDE LAWS', your eyes should be bugged out on your tearful cheeks.

"Gott Mitt Uns"

Wait a minute but is it not true that the Nazi's were regarded as "cult" "witches" or "pagans"?

"Gott Mitt Uns"

Wait up, when i add up the fact that even Zionists believe that there were no Homicidal Chambers inside Germany, then i add that to the more recent ground study in Trebliblinka that shows that there was almost certainly no mass Graves their either, So where were the Chambers? We are down to only one now?

"Gott Mitt Uns"

Wait a minute but contrary to the Story above this and current reality, didn't Germany use it's Federal Bank to Pay all it's Debt after WW1 positively effecting the German Nation? only after the "Nazis" come to power.

"Gott Mitt Uns"

Wait up but when the German Fed decided to not issue any more cash for the German Nation the "Nazi's" put the Head of the Bank in a Camp and replaced him showing the Fed it's place?

"Gott Mitt Uns"

Wait up didn't the German fuck it all up by their arrogance and the fact that they started to believe they were invincible, and did not respect the enemy they were fighting?

Great article.
I used to believe it. I used to belong to it. I bought it hook line and sinker, for a while. Then the questions started. Digging, reading-especially Christian High Roller history. Not many wanted to hear it. The one key security club they have is if you question too much, you are deemed to be allowing Satan influence you. It's kind of like an Amway's Double Diamond couple's wet dream: If you quit, you're a quiter,and how will your kids respect you? So don't quit, don't even think about it.

I finally decided that-paraphrasing the words of 'V'-
"Something was terribly wrong with today's Evangelical Christian Fundamentalism."

Needless to say it hasn't made me a lot of friends.

They pissed me off one too many times to and I decided it was time to do something about it. I completely understand. If it didn't affect you THEN I would be concerned;)

thanks, I'll check it out.
It is pretty nauseating but even more so seeing what has happened as a result.

been there done that. Needless to say with my 'beliefs' I'm not too welcome in churches around here but I don't want what they're selling. I totally agree with the quote from 'V'. Don't worry about the 'friends' there are others out here just like you. Keep on keepin on.

Excellent article! I also did some searching about the Rapture; as you wrote, Scofield made the whole thing up!

Imagine basing your belief about the end of the world on something made up by a child molester. I recommend reading this article at WhatReallyHappened:

Hagee, is really scary, and yet people read his books: "Hagee’s book, Jerusalem Countdown, [has] sold nearly 500,000 copies. It had occupied the No. 1 position on the Wal-Mart inspirational best-seller list, showed up on Wal-Mart’s list of top 10 best sellers for seven weeks, and made the USA Today top 50 best-seller list for six weeks." Hagee is also trying to institute an annual night to remember Israel in every major American city.

Along with Hagee, Bush and the Neocon gang, the only purpose that these people are breathing is to destory the world and humanity. They are rushing towards world war III; I hope a lot of people read your article. We need to know what kind of a disaster these psychos are leading us into. I think people are waking up, but what is scary is that these evangelicals hold a little of political power.

Let us only pray that they don't dupe the American public again like they did with the Iraq war.

By the way, thanks for linking to my blog :-)

An excellent article to show that many extreme religious groups help control the world's most "democratic" country ; I'd rather call the states as a political system the world's most demonic country.
