Antifa are the Brownshirts of Democrats.
American diplomat George Messersmith found himself in an awkward situation while attending a luncheon in Kiel, Germany in August of 1933.
As lunch came to a close, the attendees erupted into song with arms outstretched in the Nazi salute.
First they belted out Germany’s national anthem, followed by the anthem of the Stormtroopers-- the paramilitary ”Brownshirts” who violently enforced Germany’s new social rules.
Messersmith was the US Consul-General overseeing America’s diplomatic ties with Germany, so he politely stood at attention. But he did not salute or sing along.
Germans were required by law to render the Nazi salute, especially during the anthem; Hitler had been awarded supreme executive authority only a few months before, and he made the mandatory salute law of the land.
Foreigners, however, were explicitly exempt from saluting or singing the anthem.
But that didn’t help Messersmith.
Even though he was legally excused from making the Nazi salute, angry Brownshirts menacingly glared at him for not participating in their rituals.
Messersmith later wrote in his memoirs that he felt threatened, as if the Brownshirts were ready to attack him.
“I felt really quite fortunate that the incident took place within doors. . . For if it had been in a street gathering, or in an outdoor demonstration, no questions would have been asked as to who I was, and that I would have been mishandled is almost unquestionable.”
Messersmith was one of the few US officials who grasped just how dangerous the Nazis were in 1933. Others had to witness it first hand before they understood.
A similar event unfolded when a US radio host and his family found themselves amidst an impromptu Nazi parade in Berlin.
And in order to avoid Hailing Hitler, they turned their backs to the parade and gazed into a store window.
But several Brownshirts quickly surrounded the family and demanded to know why they did not salute.
The family explained that they were from the US and didn’t know the customs in Germany. But the Brownshirts didn’t care. The family was assaulted as police officers watched… and did nothing to stop the violence.
News of these sorts of incidents quickly made their way overseas, and foreigners read about Americans traveling in Germany being savagely beaten or threatened for not engaging in Nazi rituals.
But more surprising is that many foreigners actually sided with the Nazis.
Even the daughter of the US Ambassador to Germany defended the Nazis and their Brownshirt enforcers.
She said that news reports of these assaults and beatings were “exaggerated by bitter, close-minded people” who ignored the “thrilling rebirth” Hitler had ushered in for Germany.
Of course, we know in retrospect that these early warning signs were not at all an exaggeration. They were a small preview for what would come next.
Today we are obviously in a different time dealing with totally different circumstances.
But it would be foolish to ignore the early warning signs and pretend as if what’s happening now is not a preview for what could come next.
This is perhaps best illustrated by a CNN reporter in Kenosha, Wisconsin back in August who stood in front of burning cars and buildings, with a violent mob all around him, yet declared the protests “fiery but mostly peaceful.”
Plans for vets suicide
prevention training, new three-digit emergency mental health crisis line signed
(Military Times) President Donald Trump on Saturday signed into law a pair of bills designed to help prevent veterans suicide, including a measure to establish a new three-digit national crisis line similar to 911 for mental health emergencies.
When you first start prepping, the tendency is to do things: 1) Buy foods that supposedly have a long shelf life, and 2) Buy your favorite foods which may or may not half a long shelf life. I know that when I first started, I found out some foods didn't last nearly as long as I thought they would.
And it's not all about shelf life. If your food stockpile is made up of mostly sugar and carbohydrates, then you're not going to enjoy living off of it. You need to store foods that will last a long time AND keep you healthy through whatever disaster strikes.
Save yourself some time and money by NOT storing the following foods for too long...

With the help of socialists Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden has released radical plan after radical plan that would cost American taxpayers trillions of dollars. While Biden won’t share how he’s going to pay for this liberal wish list, we know: Taxes, taxes, and more taxes.
If we don’t stop Joe Biden and radical Democrats’ radical agenda, you can expect your taxes to increase
