World War II Psych Report On Hitler's Tendencies Mimic Today's Right Wing Lying Whenever It's Necessary Practices


"His (Hitler) primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it." The Nizkor Project
Rachel Maddow's report above on the propensity of right wing news sources to report and regurgitate bullshit as fact is profound.  Triggered by last week's $200 million dollars per day cost of Obama's trip to India story promulgated across the airwaves by the likes of Hannity, Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. We remember the lies about death panels, Obama's fake birth certificate and numerous other so called news reports that seem to bubble up from the right on a daily basis. Many of these scandals have their source in the heart of darkness bullshit news factory right wing tool bag known as the Drudge Report.

I remembered the right wing methods that Maddow is talking about resembling closely the World War II era Nazis Party propaganda machine practice of using what became known as the big lie. They never let facts get in the way, the bigger the lie the better. Researching the practice I came across the holocaust victims website The Nizkor Project that has complied some old OSS physiological reports on Hitler. That is where I found the above excerpt that described some of Hitler's core beliefs.

Sounds awfully familiar?
