Biden Admin Takes Card from Nazi Germany, Asks Americans to Report ‘Potentially’ Radicalized People

Western Journal

Throughout former President Donald Trump’s tenure, his opponents on the left continually tried to paint him as a dictator. Many went as far as to compare him to Adolf Hitler, one of the evilest tyrants in the history of the world.

The Washington Post published an article on July 16, 2018, headlined “It’s not wrong to compare Trump’s America to the Holocaust. Here’s why.”

It argued that while Trump was not pursuing a mass genocide, the Trump administration could be compared to Nazi Germany because they both used “dehumanizing language,” and that “child detention centers” were comparable to “concentration camps.”

These accusations are obviously ridiculous, and yet they were relatively common among members of the establishment media during Trump’s presidency.

It seems hypocritical, then, that the establishment media would ignore a strategy from the Biden administration taken straight out of the playbook of Nazi Germany. And yet that is exactly what they are doing right now.

According to a White House transcript from Monday, an unidentified senior official in the Biden administration discussed plans meant to curb domestic terrorism.

“This involves creating contexts in which those who are family members or friends or co-workers know that there are pathways and avenues to raise concerns and seek help for those who they have perceived to be radicalizing and potentially radicalizing towards violence,” he said.

In other words, the Biden administration is actively encouraging American citizens to report their friends and family to the government if they “perceive” them to be too radical.

What exactly constitutes radical behavior? The official did not clarify, but considering all the talk from Democrats about Trump presenting a threat to democracy, it would be hard to trust their judgment.

“Biden began his presidency with a stark warning in his inauguration speech about the ‘rise in political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism that we must confront and we will defeat,'” Breitbart’s Charlie Spiering wrote Tuesday.

“On June 1, Biden described the threat from ‘white supremacy’ as the ‘most lethal threat to the homeland today.'”

Given the left’s tendency to call everything it doesn’t like “white supremacy,” there is no telling what might constitute “radical” or dangerous behavior in their minds.

This policy bears a striking resemblance to Germany under Hitler, where people were encouraged to report their neighbors, families and friends to the Gestapo for certain offenses. According to the Wiener Holocaust Library, these informants played a big role in enabling the Nazi regime.

“Nazi propaganda presented the Gestapo as an omnipresent all-seeing, all-knowing group, but in reality there was just one secret police officer for approximately every 10,000 citizens of Nazi Germany,” it said. “The Gestapo were therefore reliant on a network of thousands of informants.”

An obvious problem arose from this system, the library noted: Informants began to report people based on “rumor or suspicion” instead of facts.

It is not hard to imagine a similar issue arising in America under this Biden administration policy. What is to stop a leftist from reporting someone for flying a Trump flag outside his or her house, for example?

When the establishment media promulgate the idea that Trump is a threat to democracy, that implies his supporters also represent a threat.

One can see why the idea that anyone on the other side of the aisle is a “threat,” mixed with the proposition of reporting your neighbors, could present a serious problem.

This is not to say that Americans should ignore the potential threat of violence. If people suspect that their neighbor or friend is engaging in criminal activity or planning some sort of attack, they should definitely call the police.

However, informing the government of anything you perceive as radical is a lot different from reporting a crime. It encourages citizens to turn each other in based solely on their political leanings.

To be clear, the United States is not Nazi Germany, no matter who is in power. But the media watchdogs who compared Trump to Hitler could at least mention how radical this new policy really is.

Family Escapes Through 2nd-Story Window During Armed Standoff After Suspect Barricades Door: Report

On July 25, in Auburn, Alabama, a man reportedly put his family, his neighborhood, first responders and himself in a very dangerous position. Calls came into the Auburn Police District around 7:00 p.m. reporting a domestic violence incident in the Camden Ridge Subdivision. When police arrived, the man reportedly began firing at them with a handgun. Police fired back, and the man retreated into the home, where he also had his family trapped in a room. Thanks to the police and fire department coming together and working smarter instead of harder, the situation was resolved without injury to the family members trapped upstairs. It was firefighter Andrew Kiser, Chief of Police Cedric Anderson and Shift Supervisor Lt. Cody Hill who were responsible for carrying out the daring rescue that helped bring the threat to an end. While the shooter refused to exit the house, the men carried a ladder to the house and set it up to reach one of the second-story windows, where they learned the man’s family had been trapped. While Anderson held the ladder steady, Hill climbed the ladder and Kiser assisted the family as they climbed out of the window. With the family out of the way, Lee County SWAT was able to enter the house and capture the suspect. He was taken to Baptist Medical Center South after he was found to have sustained what appeared to be a gunshot wound. “Auburn PD Alerts: Heavy Police Activity in the Camden Ridge Subdivision, in the area of Wedgewood Ct.,” a public safety alert for the area read, according to WRBL-TV. “The scene is secure at this time, NO ONGOING THREAT.” Auburn Assistant Police Chief Clarence Stewart praised the efforts of all involved, highlighting how each group present played an important role in…

After Receiving Call About Blazing Attic Fire, Police Rescue Man Trapped Inside Smoke-Filled Bedroom

A family in Marlboro Township, New Jersey, woke up just before midnight on Sunday and sensed something was wrong. They called 911 at around 11:38 p.m., reporting a “possible fire at the residence,” according to The Journal NJ. Officers Ryan Anzalone, Donna Gonzalez, Michael Morgante and Colin Murray with the Marlboro Township Police Department were first on the scene and quickly assessed the situation. They found smoke pouring out of the attic, but were relieved to see the family appeared to have exited the home. After a short time, though, the family realized one of their members was not with them, and was likely still trapped inside on the second floor. Gonzalez and Anzalone charged in and found the man, as described, in a bedroom on the second floor. By the time they got there, the room was “completely filled with smoke,” but they managed to rescue the resident. The fire department had a difficult time accessing the home due to the long, narrow driveway and a large landscaping rock. “While enroute Chief 2-66 was advised of heavy smoke from the attic,” the Robertsville Volunteer Fire Co. #1 posted on Facebook. “At the time the mutual aid response plan was put in place and the box alarm was requested to bring in initial assistance.” “Upon the arrival of 2-66 Chief advised the house was located down a 180 foot narrow driveway. Once engine 2-75 arrived there was trouble accessing the house due to a large ornamental boulder and trees. Members of the engine and police moved the 400lb boulder so the engine could get to the house and attack the fire. “As the incident progressed, the second alarm mutual aid plan was requested for this deep seated, hard to access attic fire.” The two officers who…
