Right out of Hitler’s playbook…

Do you think the Republican’s know they’re using a game right out of Hitler’s playbook?

Those from the far right who criticize President Obama for anything and everything are using the BIG LIE technique espoused by Adolf Hitler in his book Mein Kampf.
Hitler Wrote in chapter 10 of Mein Kampf: “In the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.”
Hitler’s primary rules were: 1. Never allow the public to cool off 2.never admit a fault or wrong 3. never concede that there may be some good in your enemy 4.never leave room for alternatives 5. never accept blame 6. 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 the lie frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.

Doesn’t this technique sound very familiar?
