    I had been watching Glenn Beck lastnite and I learned something quite interesting.
    He was explaining how propaganda was used by progressives here in America. Then used by Paul Joseph Goebbels from 1933 to 1945.
    Take a look at Edward Bernays book Propaganda (1928) a book that was used by the Nazi’s to control and manipulate the German people.
    During the course of the show… close to the end, he made a point to prove his case that you should never silence the voices of dissent, because it will always end badly.
    He showed this image and asked if we knew where it originated… I had no idea, and frankly never really cared. Even though my mom is a lesbian, and I don’t think she even knows, I never cared to look it up. I always just thought it was a way for them (gays & lesbians) to separate themselves from the rest of society.

    Glenn then went on to explain the symbol…

    It was used by the Nazi’s as a way to label the prisoners… it was an upside down pink triangle. They had to wear it just like the Jews wore a yellow Jewish star.

    So I then went and looked at the symbols the Nazi’s used to categorize their prisoners and I was astonished and sickened by it….

    Here in English:

    There were:

    Political enemies (wow) – red triangle

    Habitual criminals – Green triangle

    Imigrants (foreign slaves) – blue triangle

    Jehovahs witnesses (I had no idea) – purple trianlgle

    Gay males – pink triangle

    Antisocials (whatever that means) – black triangle

    There were also male and female “race defiers” (wtf?)

    What a sad part of human history.

    Anyways, I just thought some of you folks might find this as interesting and enlightening as I did.

    Once again, the subject was never about SILENCING dissent or divisive opinions. Since the Tucson incident, which exacerbated an already heated topic, there has been a mutual hope from everyone that the tone of debate at least begin to carry a modicum of civility to it. No one said one "side" or the other should be "silenced" from dissention completely, which is what Glenn Beck implies.

    And the Zeig Heil salute during the pledge of allegance?

    One can find many similarities between Nazi Germany and the USA if they look for them and expect to find them.

    Posted, I presume to oppose mine,

    http://www.usmessageboard.com/media/151746-bizarro-beck-5.html

    in order to show that kinder, gentler "Christian" side of Glenn Beck. Unfortunately, he's already had a field day once or twice mocking Barney Frank. He remains a phony and a hypocrite to me.

    Dont flatter yourself.

    (look at the timelines, we were posting along about the same time - Jeez - )

    I was simply watching his show and this was mentioned along with his topic of the evening.

    I posted the symbols because as the title of the thread *implies* "I had no idea" about the symbols.
    I thought some folks here might find it interesting and instead all I get is you trolling my posts.

    Get a life :cuckoo:

    Beck is equating American political discourse with Goebbels?

    God that guy is a total douche bag.

    Somehow I think the "pink triangle" as a symbol selected by homosexuals is as coincidental with Naziism as the fact that the swastika was used by Native Americans and eastern cultures as a symbol of luck long before Hitler adapted it.

    From what I've seen, he has pointed out that Goebbles was influenced by, and may well have had an admiration for, American progressive propagandists Edward Bernays and Walter Lippmann...Which probably has at least some truth to it.

    Yep, that's where you went wrong. The rest of your post can't possibly be worth reading.
