Not to thread drift, but if you know history, the Nazis actually learned from Progressives in the west. Joseph Geobbels learned propaganda techniques from Woodrow Wilson. The idea for gas chambers came from George Bernard Shaw and Margaret Sanger with their eugenics ideas.That could be the clientel they have to resort to: Mindless lemmings that will do anything "for the greater good" and blindly follow orders, very much like how the Nazis founded the SA. I have said it before and I'll say it again: The left has studied history thoroughly, a lot of their actions appear to be straight out of "The Aspiring Dictator's Handbook". They say that "those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it", but you can just as well say that "those who know history might very well try to repeat it".
It's easy to be tough behind the keyboard, but I think I would actually find great pleasure firing away at those who come to take my freedom away. I would chalk it up to "cleaning the gene pool".
