Rob Reiner shows how Hitler did it

In the 1930s, Germans were the best educated people in the world. Sure, they had lost the Great War a little over a decade earlier. Their economy was in the toilet, but everyone’s was. Germans were literate and cultured, the last people you would believe who could fall for demagoguery. So why did they fall for Hitler? Why did they blame their woes on Jews?  Why did they in just a dozen years destroy themselves and half of Europe?

We are taught that Hitler’s followers were stupid and naïve. But the elitists of the day also backed Hitler. The industrialists and the media did his bidding. We are told his supporters were lower-class losers. But educated, skilled and successful people also supported him and his attempt to eradicate the world of Jewish people. The military supported him too.

We are taught that Hitler mesmerized his followers. It was all that darned Hitler’s fault. After the war, we created a fantasy that there was a place called Nazi Germany that did all the damage. We took the blame off Germany.

But no, Germans did this. They beat the Jews in the streets. They ran the cattle cars. They wanted to be the master race.

It is hard to fathom how a nation fell like this, until you look at someone who is falling for the fascism that has fallen upon America.

The best example I can find is Rob Reiner. I can argue that he is a fine film director. I base this on 40 years of work across a wide range of movie genres. He started with This Is Spinal Tap (a mockumentary) then came Stand by Me (a coming of age film) then The Princess Bride (an adult fairy tale) then When Harry Met Sally… (a rom-com) then Misery (a horror film) then A Few Good Men (a courtroom drama) then The American President (a romance) then The Bucket List (a road picture).

I left out about 20 other movies. I went with the ones that became ingrained in our culture. Conservative bloggers quote them all the time.

“You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

“I’ll have what she’s having.”

“You can’t handle the truth.”

Don’t let your politics blind you. The man is perhaps the GOAT of all directors. He makes well-written scripts come alive. He is an accomplished man. 

But don’t let his artistry fool you. The man is consumed by politics. It is his religion and those who disagree are Satanists.

Reiner, who once denounced Nixon’s use of campaign workers to spy on Larry Brown of the McGovern campaign, had no problem, 44 years later, when Obama used the FBI to spy on Trump.

For six years, the deep state has investigated Trump and found nothing.

But that does not faze Reiner. He has convinced himself that Trump is guilty and the FBI must bring him to justice because no man is above the law.

Except Hunter Biden.

Hillary.

John Podesta.

Everyone associated with Jeff Epstein.

On Tuesday, Rob Reiner cheered the seizure of telephones from Trump’s friends and supporters. 

As one of the characters in one of the Star Wars movies said, “So this is how liberty die with thunderous applause.”

Half the nation is clapping.

Watching the foaming-mouth liberals in their blood-thirsty quest for Trump’s imprisonment reminds me of how they foamed at the mouth over Karl Rove and Dick Cheney. Reiner is a ready and willing member of the lynch mob. Have rope, will travel.

And therein lies the secret. Hitler did not turn Germans into Nazis. They already were. He just channeled their Nazism.

Biden and Obama guided Reiner’s hatred of Republicans. They use that hatred to gain power and to subdue the political opposition. Reiner is so self-righteous about standing up to fascism that he does not realize he is paving the way for the real fascists to roll in on tanks.
