Greetings from “New Normal” Germany!

Recommended Posts

On April 1, 1933, shortly after Hitler was appointed chancellor, the Nazis staged a boycott of Jewish businesses in Germany. Members of the Storm Troopers (“die Sturmabteilung,” or the “Storm Department,” as I like to think of them) stood around outside of Jewish-owned stores with Gothic-lettered placards reading “Germans! Defend yourselves! Do not buy from Jews!” The boycott itself was a total disaster — most Germans ignored it and just went on with their lives — but it was the beginning of the official persecution of the Jews and totalitarianism in Nazi Germany.

 

Last week, here in “New Normal” Germany, the government (which, it goes without saying, bears no resemblance to the Nazi regime, or any other totalitarian regime) implemented a social-segregation system that bans anyone who refuses to publicly conform to the official “New Normal” ideology from participating in German society. From now on, only those who have an official “vaccination pass” or proof of a negative PCR test are allowed to sit down and eat at restaurants, shop at a “non-essential” stores, or go to bars, or the cinema, or wherever.

 

Here’s a notice from the website of Prater, a popular beer garden in Berlin:

Of course, there is absolutely no valid comparison to be made between these two events, or between Nazi Germany and “New Normal” Germany, nor would I ever imply that there was. That would be illegal in “New Normal” Germany, as it would be considered “relativizing the Holocaust,” not to mention being “anti-democratic and/or delegitimizing the state in a way that endangers security,” or whatever.

Plus, it’s not like there are SA goons standing outside shops and restaurants with signs reading “Germans! Defend yourselves! Don’t sell to the Unvaccinated and Untested!” It’s just that it’s now illegal to do that, i.e., sell anything to those of us whom the media and the government have systematically stigmatized as “Covid deniers” because we haven’t converted to the new official ideology and submitted to being “vaccinated” or “tested.”

Protesting the new official ideology is also illegal in “New Normal” Germany. OK, I think I should probably rephrase that. I certainly don’t want to misinform anyone. Protesting the “New Normal” isn’t outlawed per se. You’re totally allowed to apply for a permit to protest against the “Covid restrictions” on the condition that everyone taking part in your protest wears a medical-looking N95 mask and maintains a distance of 1.5 meters from every other medical-masked protester … which is kind of like permitting anti-racism protests as long as the protesters all wear Ku Klux Klan robes and perform a choreographed karaoke of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Sweet Home Alabama.

Who says the Germans don’t have a sense of humor?

I don’t mean to single out the Germans. There is nothing inherently totalitarian, or fascist, or robotically authoritarian and hyper-conformist about the Germans, as a people. The fact that the vast majority of Germans clicked their heels and started mindlessly following orders, like they did in Nazi Germany, the moment the “New Normal” was introduced last year doesn’t mean that all Germans are fascists by nature.

Most Americans did the same thing. So did the British, the Australians, the Spanish, the French, the Canadians, and a long list of others. It’s just that, well, I happen to live here, so I’ve watched as Germany has been transformed into “New Normal Germany” up close and personal, and it has definitely made an impression on me.

The ease with which the German authorities implemented the new official ideology, and how fanatically it has been embraced by the majority of Germans, came as something of a shock. I had naively believed that, in light of their history, the Germans would be among the first to recognize a nascent totalitarian movement predicated on textbook Goebbelsian Big Lies (i.e., manipulated Covid “case” and “death” statistics), and would resist it en masse, or at least take a moment to question the lies their leaders were hysterically barking at them.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

 

Here we are, over a year later, and waiters and shop clerks are “checking papers” to enforce compliance with the new official ideology. (And, yes, the “New Normal” is an official ideology. When you strip away the illusion of an apocalyptic plague, there isn’t any other description for it).

Perfectly healthy, medical-masked people are lining up in the streets to be experimentally “vaccinated.” Lockdown-bankrupted shops and restaurants have been converted into walk-in “PCR-test stations.” The government is debating mandatory “vaccination” of children in kindergarten. Goon squads are arresting octogenarians for picnicking on the sidewalk without permission. And so on. At this point, I’m just sitting here waiting for the news that mass “disinfection camps” are being set up to solve the “Unvaccinated Question.”

Whoops … there I go again, “relativizing the Holocaust.” I really need to stop doing that. The Germans take this stuff very seriously, especially with Israel under relentless attack by the desperately impoverished people it has locked inside an enormous walled ghetto, and is self-defensively ethnically cleansing.

But, seriously, there is no similarity whatsoever between Nazi Germany and “New Normal” Germany. Sure, both systems suspended the constitution, declared a national “state of emergency” enabling the government to rule by decree, inundated the masses with insane propaganda and manipulated “scientific facts,” outlawed protests, criminalized dissent, implemented a variety of public rituals, and symbols, and a social segregation system, to enforce compliance with their official ideologies, and demonized anyone who refused to comply … but, other than that, there’s no similarity, and anyone who suggests there is is a dangerous social-deviant extremist who probably needs to be quarantined somewhere, or perhaps dealt with in some other “special” way.

 

Plus, the two ideologies are completely different. One was a fanatical totalitarian ideology based on imaginary racial superiority and the other is a fanatical totalitarian ideology based on an imaginary “apocalyptic plague” … so what the hell am I even talking about? On top of which, no swastikas, right? No swastikas, no totalitarianism! And nobody’s mass murdering the Jews, that I know of, and that’s the critical thing, after all!

 

So, never mind. Just ignore all that crazy stuff I just told you about “New Normal” Germany. Don’t worry about “New Normal” America, either. Or “New Normal” Great Britain. Or “New Normal” wherever. Get experimentally “vaccinated.” Experimentally “vaccinate” your kids. Prove your loyalty to the Reich … sorry, I meant to global capitalism. Ignore those reports of people dying and suffering horrible adverse effects. Wear your mask. Wear it forever. God knows what other viruses are out there, just waiting to defile your bodily fluids and cause you to experience a flu-like illness, or cut you down in the prime of your seventies or eighties … and, Jesus, I almost forgot “long Covid.” That in itself is certainly enough to justify radically restructuring society so that it resembles an upscale hospital theme park staffed by paranoid, smiley-faced fascists in fanciful designer Hazmat suits.

Oh, and keep your “vaccination papers” in order. You never know when you’re going to have to show them to some official at the airport, or a shop, or restaurant, or to your boss, or your landlord, or the police, or your bank, or your ISP, or your Tinder date … or some other “New Normal” authority figure. I mean, you don’t want to be mistaken for a “Covid denier,” or an “anti-vaxxer,” or a “conspiracy theorist,” or some other type of ideological deviant, and be banished from society, do you?

First paragraph and I already have questions.

 

Was this before or after the Jewish boycott on German goods? This issue from the Daily Express is from March 24, 1933, and mentions the boycott of German goods.

So can we also say that was the beginning of persecution of the Germans too, right?

Amazing humor and even more amazing german insight!!..

 

Thanks for letting us have a 'taste' of the true state of how the ideology is with pantomine pandemic over there (and near enough everywhere). It is interesting but of course disappointing as you too are disappointed in how germans have just 'swallowed' all this.

 

No questions, we obey... Hmmm. 

 

 

Best Welcome!! 🙂

I compliment your very good presicion english! Pleasure to read! 👍✍️

Seems like this would make another Beer Hall Putsch harder, would it not? Doesn't seem very NatSoc.

Hey, EW, there's a mention of Don Quixote on that Daily German Express. borrowing his name no doubt in some way but for what cause exactly I don't know since the small text is not readable but thats not your fault.  

 

You may wonder who was he exactly that rings a bell.. Well, I can tell you I know the word "quixotic" comes from this guy or some guy sharing the same name I believe. 

For added spanish interest then (as well as german) I give you Don Quixote, lol...

 

Book of same name (in two parts) was a respected prize winning "great work"   (of comedy &  tragedy) written in prison by a real chivalrous knight apparently.. *Don Quixote*, is the name of the knightly character in the book I believe. 

 

Read summary here:-

http://www.online-literature.com/cervantes/don_quixote/

 

Author/Knight=>

Miguel Cervantes. 

 

Currently -would seem to be getting- more downloads than Leo Tolstoys= "War & Peace", according to this similar reads page:

https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/996/also/ 

(showing latest figures of the day or week I guess?) 

 

But here, https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/996 

it says 7713 downloads in last 30, days which is more again!

 

Yet... 

War & Peace is the TRUE winner:-https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/2600 

it says 10471 downloads in last 30 days.

I fear my english isnt quite as good as laid out here.

This is not my article, but it resonates with me in a lot of ways and thats why i posted it here.

 

And i want to come arround what Enigmatic World pointed out and say that yes, it was certainly not all Germanys fault.

I think Germany got used for an agenda just like it is used for it now. (this time its global)

However, the important factor is how propaganda works and what kind of history we share. What results if the masses get manipulated into the absolute nightmare.

Many here always ask their grandparents: "Why no one did anything?"

To answer this question is very easy.

Look at the situation now and what is happening and you understand why next to no one did anything.

Same methods, same bullshit and people are blind.

If people do stand up and do something, do you not think they would be labeled as Nazis? Even the term 'Nazi' isn't legit because they never even called themselves that.

 

Then you have articles like the above, which talk about 'racial superiority', but did Hitler even use the term 'master race'? He used the term “Aryan” to represent all the Germanic peoples of Europe. The term 'master race' wasn't even used in SS training.

 

We know who does think they're the master race though, and it's not the Germans.

 

The Western press also made every effort to invent racial controversies in Germany when none existed, take the lies about Jesse Owens for example.

 

"When I passed near the Chancellor he arose, waved his hand at me and I waved back at him. I think the writers showed bad taste in criticizing the man of the hour in Germany." - Jesse Owens

 

There are pictures of black soldiers fighting alongside Germans. meanwhile America still had its race segregation.

 

Meanwhile British leaders made supremacist statements.

 

Lord Halifax, the chief British architect of war against Germany, said in his first speech to the House of Commons that the British people were a “superior race” within an Empire which comprised more than a quarter of the world’s population.

 

And screw Halifax. Even Józef Beck was honest enough to admit that Halifax hoped to accomplish the complete destruction of Germany.

Again, the point of the article for me is the way propaganda works and what it has lead to.

WW2 and all its events before that can not be singled out to Germany alone. Its always the totality of everything and there are many events that lead up to that point, which all have to be considered.

History is for sure not as we have been told. However there are some key factors like "directing the masses" which can be understood rather easily.

Humans in general need to absolute question everything they have been told and make their own conclusions. Each and everyone should do that.

If nothing is taken for granted, manipulation is next to impossible.

History is always written by the VICTORS and never by the VANQUISHED! When you are only given the one side, how can anyone decide on what is the REAL truth.
