Nazi-Friendly Rick Wiles Says Our Government is Run by Nazis

German Nazism and Italian Fascism were right-wing responses to left wing Bolshevism in the early 20s. This is historical fact, and Adolf Hitler’s own utterances prove it. Hitler had the support not only of Germany’s 1 Percent, but of the Church – Protestant and Catholic both.

Right-wingers today love to invoke Hitler and insist the ideologies are identical, which makes a mockery of history, but also of the claim these people know what they’re talking about.

So when televangelist Jim Bakker says “we have outlawed God,” we immediately find our old pal Rick Wiles claiming that the United States government is run by Nazis. Anything remotely unfriendly to the Religious Right’s plans for an American theocracy must be Nazi, believes Wiles.

According to Wiles,

“When you have a Antichrist man in the White House, whether it is this one or a future one, and he tells an atheistic, God-hating military, ‘These Christians are enemies of the state,’ do you think it would be hard for them to round us up?”

Yes, those Nazis hate Christians and they’re not shy about it. You know, like that “God [is] With Us” belt buckle worn by the Wehrmacht, the German army, during the Nazi Third Reich. Or these wonderful Christmas ornaments.

“There is a criminal cabal that runs this country, our beloved America has been taken over by a bunch of lying, thieving, murderous criminals, I don’t know what else to call them; they’re Nazis, I really believe it, they’re Nazis. The CIA brought 10,000 Nazis from Germany to the United States after World War II. We didn’t bring them over here to make them Boy Scouts. We brought them over here for them to tell us: how did Hitler do it? We brought their mad men over here to teach us how to build that Third Reich. What we’re dealing with in this country, you’re asking how did this happen. This Third Reich is here. This Nazism is here.

Yes, the United States brought Nazis to America after the war. And no, we did not bring them here to “make” Boy Scouts. A lot of people were helping Nazis escape in those days, for a variety of reasons. If there was one group who should not have been, it is Christians, at least, if you take that whole “Christianity is Nazism’s enemy” meme seriously.

To show you how hostile Christians were to the Nazis, most Nazis were Christians, simply because most Germans were Christians, and everybody else was in concentration camps.

Wiles talks about the U.S. military becoming a “pagan atheist army,” but the Wehrmacht was anything but Pagan or atheist. Pagans got thrown in concentration camps too. Freethinkers were no more popular, and secular schools were closed. No, the German army was Christian. Even Hitler was a Christian – a Catholic.

The Vatican was very friendly to Hitler. There are even allegations that the Vatican aided in the scape of Adolf Eichmann after the war, that German Bishop Alois Hudal helped him to obtain the necessary documentation.

Bishop Hudal may or may not have helped Eichmann escape, but the bishop was so oppressed by and hostile to the Nazis that he helped a bunch of them escape justice after the war via Vatican “ratlines,” including SS Hauptsturmführer Erich Priebke, the man responsible for the Ardeatine massacre in 1944 in which 335 Italian civilians were murdered in retaliation for a partisan attack.

You will undoubtedly have been sent this alleged quote by Adolf Hitler to prove his dedication to socialist ideology:

We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions.

Unfortunately – and this is one of those awkward moments people write memes about – Hitler never said it. Instead, it appeared in Thoughts about the Tasks of the Future by Gregor Strasser, on June 15, 1926.

Hitler killed Gregor Strasser. Because he was a socialist. Because, unlike Hitler, he took the “socialism” in National Socialism seriously.

The Religious Right wants to pretend Nazism is their enemy even when they hold so many hatreds in common, even when both are ethnic nationalist ideologies.

The truth is, Freethinkers like David Niose were rounded up by the Nazis. So were socialists like Gregor Strasser, and his brother, Otto, who escaped the massacre of the Nazi Party’s “leftist wing” in 1934’s Night of the Long Knives only to be labeled by Joseph Goebbels as Public Enemy Number One.

But not people like Jim Bakker and Rick Wiles. They were the people standing by the road with their arms thrust out in the Hitlergruß, or “Hitler Greeting,” as Der Führer drove by. No, our government is not run by Nazis, but I have no doubt that if it was, Jim Bakker and Rick Wiles would be the first to join.

  • wow, jim bakker has any credibility at all? people will fall for any false prophet that comes down the line won't they?

    I do have a couple of questions for mr wiles:

    1. the Nazis killed 6 million jews who were a small minority in an overwhelmingly Christian Europe. how does he think that a small minority of non Christians is going to round up and exterminate Christians in a historically overwhelmingly Christian nation?

    2. if there was going to be a mass roundup don't you think they would be doing it on the poor defenseless minorities starting with the undocumented immigrants? or minority faiths?

    3. isn't number 2 exactly what the conservative "Christian" lawmakers are proposing to do?

    4. do you actually believe in the 10 commandments? especially the one about bearing false witness? apparently not.....

  • Rick Wiles understand neither the Nazi nor Russia. He says Russian leaders call the United States the new Nazis. He does not understand, or more likely ignores, the fact that Russia is trying to scare their own citizens by talking about Nazis.

    Wiles probably knows the Nazis in Germany in the '30s and '40s were Christians. They were perverted Christians certainly, but Christians at least in their own minds. Like the Russians, Wiles is trying to scare his own followers. By mixing up Nazi, Fascist, and Communist he tries to push the fear button of his followers to send him money to fight the boogeyman.

  • Ah us elites pointing out the foibles of the professional victims- again.

    It's amazing what you can discover when you choose to read a History Book, as opposed to simply burning it.

    Nazis- also outlawed abortion, gave (approved) citizens access to military firearms, established a State Religion, burned books, and made questioning the state a crime.

    Now why does all that sound so familiar?

    • ..."that goose stepping morons like your self should try reading books instead of burning them"< said with a Scottish burr. One of my favorite lines from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

  • On my 1000 mile drive to Florida I ran into a guy at a rest stop north of Atlanta<Beautiful City! that asked me why I thought Germany lost the war. I replied because they were WRONG! What he was doing was wrong!. This guy evaded the question when I asked him if he thought the slaughter of millions of Jews was wrong, I schooled him on it passionately. The Conservative Reich Wing IS the new 4th Reich!!

    • And not just Jews, but also others they considered 'undesirable' immigrants.

      Now where on earth have we encountered folks get all bent out of shape about 'undesirable' immigrants?

      • Phyllis Schafly says,

        “The problem is that the immigrants coming into our country today are not the same sort as the immigrants who contributed so much to building our great country. The immigrants who came to America in the 1920s and ‘30s were different – with very different motives.”

        “...America was built by hard working people from all over the world who sought a place of freedom where they could realize their dream,” she said. “But today’s immigrants don’t have the same motivation, the same love for America, the same desire to be part of the American culture and dream.”

        She cited Russian-born songwriter Irving Berlin as the kind of America-loving immigrant who supposedly no longer come to the United States."

        "Not-the-right-sort-of-people"? How 1950's "Auntie Mame" can you get?! The social bigotry in this cretin neanderthal jackass is strong!

        (drinking game: sing "Yankee-Doodle" fast w/replacement words "Phyllis Scha...

        • I just wonder if the immigrants coming to this Great Nation today, might just want the same things as the ones from the 1920s. But these immigrants of today can't do it openly. They have to hide in the shadows, unable to contribute due to FEAR. Just maybe, if we could get them out of the shadows they could work above board, without fear of deportation, would be able to contribute to our Great Nation?? Just a thought.

  • Rick Wiles is correct about our government bringing over Nazi's from Europe! But he fails to mention ON PURPOSE!!! that it was Nixon and THE CONSERVATIVE Party that requested them to help the CONSERVATIVES craft the Propaganda AND the AGENDA for them. Conservatism is Fascism little brother.

  • I read about these nut jobs at the RightWingWatch site. They're idiots. But they're also scary because they think God is on their side. Too many of these people have shyte for brains.

  • Before he was Pope Pius XII, he was known as Eugenio Maria Giuseppe Giovanni Pacelli, and served as secretary of Church affairs in Germany.

    After WWII started, his job was to protect the Catholic German Church, not the Jews from extermination.

    Still, the Reichskonkordat of 1933 and Pope Pius's leadership of the Catholic Church during World War II remain the subject of controversy—including allegations of public silence and inaction about the fate of the Jews

    • Maranon, yes and under the leadership of Pope Pius Jews and other alleged enemy's of the 3rd Reich were handed over when they asked for asylum in the church. Most were whisked away not knowing they were headed to Germany to die, christanity is just lovely isn't it?!

      • Joseph P. Uhl:

        In this WWII genocide period, the focus was on the Jews, attacked by the Germans.

        In the genocide of 1915, it was the people of Armenia being the target, attacked by the Turks.

        The Native American people genocide perpetrated by Europeans under different flags.

        The Rowanda genocide, perpetrated by their own neighbors.

        All is says is that humanity is capable of some doing very awful things against humans perceived as their enemy.

        very sad indeed...

    • Pope Pius XII's (1876-1958) actions during the Holocaust remain controversial. For much of the war, he maintained a public front of indifference and remained silent while German atrocities were committed. He refused pleas for help on the grounds of neutrality, while making statements condemning injustices in general. Privately, he sheltered a small number of Jews and spoke to a few select officials, encouraging them to help the Jews.

  • It is just sickening to compare President Obama to an evil and repugnant person like Hitler. Our President has done so much to help the economy grow and aid those in need by providing healthcare. What is so wrong about improving and making our country much better? The republicans and their right wing nuts have done so much to hurt this country and the global economy. I just remember the debt ceiling crisis, for which the republicans were unwilling to vote. The wight wing machine will continue its venom with President Hillary Clinton and President Julián Castro.
