During the thirties in Germany Goebbels ran propaganda for the Nazi party.  First he took control of the media, making sure he capitalized on the new media weapon - radio.  All dissenters were first slandered and later in the Nazi campaign murdered.  Next Jews were demonised.  They were first blamed for everything, then disenfranchised, finally they were taken to disposal camps.  Control of this one small nation became so fanatical it took the rest of the world to stop it.

Sensible, caring, educated and inteligent Germans fell for this series of national lies, promoted them, suffered for them, died for them.  The relevant question is: "why?"

The answer is simple: control of the media.  Evil deeds are usually done where no one can see them.*

I am watching the same story repeat itself across the USA today.  I pray it does not go that far this time that the people of America will wake up.

First Trump rose to power, by utterly brilliant use of the media, especially this new form 'Twitter' and aided by the corruption and poverty rife in America - just like Germany in the 20s and 30s. 

Then he attempted to control the media, fawning on Fox News and calling everyone else liars and purveyors of 'fake news'.

Now he has moved on to the 'pick on someone' phase.  Even if the illegal imigrants were more often guilty of murder (actually they are 25% less likely to comit murder**) that would not make the internment of their children any the less heinous.  It is not the Jews this time, but it is still selecting a group to pick on.

I have no proof that he will continue to follow Goebbels' blueprint, but I am genuinely scared!  The USA is a lot bigger than Germany and they have a fantastically advanced military tech - which they used Nazi scientists to begin.***

Searching for something else entirely, I came across this article:

"80% Of Serial Killers Vote Republican"  Source   https://zetaboards.com/Express_Yourself/topic/4991625/1/

I personally doubt its accuracy and even if it is right,  You cannot infer from that, that all Republicans automatically lean that way.  I posted it here for another reason entirely; to point out that it is astonishingly easy to twist facts for propaganda.

The bit I take issue with, is how disgusting it is to display the grief of victim's families to attempt to prove a political point.  Bundy's victims did not blame Republican rhetoric for his crimes - and he was a Republican.  He said so.

It comes down to this:  Some Republicans comit murder.  Some illegal immigrants comit murder.  Confusing cause and effect is only stupid.  Using that which you fail to grasp, at the cost of parading someone's grief in front of cameras is evil and inexcusable.
