When Eric Garner, 43 years old, asthmatic and unarmed, died after being put in a chokehold by NYPD police for resisting arrest over selling untaxed cigarettes, the nation argued over racism and police brutality. This despite that had Garner died while being arrested for a real crime such as rape or pedophilia none of us would morn the man, shed a tear, or bring up the issues of ‘race’ or ‘police brutality’.
So who then was the real killer, the police or Bloomberg who over taxed the smoker and forced the police to arrest a man for trying to earn a living on the street?
Bloomberg is the killer. He put a $5.85 tax on cigarettes, over half the price in New York is taxes, so he criminalized a behavior putting police in a difficult situation with bad laws.
Now Obama is playing the race card more overtly than ever before when fact is he could care less about police-involved deaths of a disproportionate number of African-American men when the outside world (including Obama) knows that America discusses racism more than any other nation in the world while America exercises the least amount of racism in the world.
So is it an issue of race, cigarettes or the hidden tyranny of Obamaism?
The police was not the problem neither was Eric Garner who was selling cigarettes but the tyranny of Obamaism is.
Obamaism, ISIS and Nazism have much in common from the sense that while Nazism and ISIS claimed they look after the best interest of the poor man, in reality it was about complete control, domination and tyranny.
What most do not know is that a wealth of overlooked yet frightening literature concerning the Nazi crusade against smoking provides a clear parallel to contemporary developments and an alarming warning that state restriction of personal habits is the pre-cursor to dictatorship. The top number one ban by ISIS and the Nazis is not vice as they claim but cigarettes.
Beginning in the early 1930’s, as part of the Nazi agenda for racial purity, Hitler spearheaded a national campaign to ban smoking in all public buildings, and denounced the practice as a betrayal of the fascist drive for bodily purity.
In fact, historically speaking, it was the Nazis who first banned smoking and passed the ban on tobacco.
In the Muslim world today, it was the Islamic State (ISIS) that effectively banned smoking completely in all ISIS ruled areas. And if you are anti-smoking, here watch ISIS in action burning mounds of cigarettes then announced a manhunt of a list of men who are selling all these cigarettes in Raqa, sort of like Bloomberg making the police go on similar manhunt after a poor man selling cigarettes on the street:
Nazi Germany led the first public anti-smoking campaign in modern history. While anti-tobacco movements grew in many nations from the beginning of the 20th century, but these had little success, except in Germany, where the campaign was supported by the government after the Nazis came to power. It was the most powerful anti-smoking movement in the world during the 1930s and early 1940s.
The National Socialist leadership, just like ISIS and the American left, condemned smoking and several of them openly criticized tobacco consumption. Ever wonder what happened to the good old days when the Marlboro Man commercial was everywhere?
Well, what happened is this, we focused on the little lie, that cigarettes are really really bad, to only buy into the big lie; the government cares about your health and well being very very much. In fact, too much. During Nazism the motto in the Hitler Youth was “your health is our business” and so it is today in New York where Bloomberg runs the show trying to outlaw 16 ounce soda pop.
Like ISIS today and like the the last two decades in America, research on smoking and its effects on health thrived during Nazi rule and was the most important of its type at that time. Adolf Hitler’s personal distaste for tobacco and the Nazi reproductive policies were among the motivating factors behind their campaign against smoking, and this campaign was associated with both antisemitism and racism. Today under Obamaism, a campaign of racial warfare and police hatred is on its height.
And just like today in America, the Nazi anti-tobacco campaign included banning smoking in trams, buses and city trains, promoting health education, limiting cigarette rations in the Wehrmacht, organizing medical lectures for soldiers, and raising the tobacco tax. The National Socialists also imposed restrictions on tobacco advertising and smoking in public spaces, and regulated restaurants and coffeehouses.
Either Obama, Bloomberg and the Nazis really cared about everyone’s health or they used the specter of anti-smoking to exert massive control over people’s lives and scale back basic freedoms, getting a foot in the door for the political dictatorship that was to follow?
Similarly today, either the same elite that advocate “mass culling” of the majority of the world’s population really do care about public health and well-being or they are using the excuse of the anti-smoking drive to condition us to accept state regulation over every aspect of our personal lives.
It’s all about control, it’s all about letting you know who the bosses are. If the government can regulate personal habits and behavior, what’s next? If the state is so concerned about our good health as they would have you believe, why not use the latest scientific advancements to remove that nasty aggressive gene that causes so much unhappiness? Well, you’re causing those around you distress and harming their health so why not? Are your political opinions a mental illness? Are they harming society? Perhaps we should ban certain types of “free” speech that is offensive to others or that we can come up with laws to ban “Jesus freaks” since believing in a God who ‘does not exist’ is a from of mental illness.
You see where this is all heading – how long before our wall mounted personal x-ray body scanners are accompanied by special smoke detectors that inform on you to the local Stasi if you dare to light up?
We live in a paranoid world overpopulated by ninnying jellyfish who dare not dip their toe in the water in case there’s a law against it, it might upset someone, or it might be bad for their health.
The idea of control is simple, oppress a minority group like the annoying smokers, the obese fast-food and soda pop consumers, then its these pesky anti-homosexual pastors, then its your church and then its all over. Raise domestic paranoia over race and you turn normal behaviors, like a man selling cigarettes and an officer doing his job into suspected crimes. So now, to top it off, we get these completely insane privacy-invading, micro-managing nanny bureaucrats like Bloomberg and now Cambridge Mayor Henrietta Davis who think that they can solve all the world’s problems if we just give them enough power to dominate and control our lives.
One writer laments: “It starts with criminalizing soda “possession,” followed by arrests of people caught with “intent to distribute” soda. From there, it escalates into two guys who talked about distributing soda and are now being charged with “conspiracy to distribute an illegal substance,” which is of course a felony. Can you imagine these people winding up in the joint, next to a violent rapist who asks, “What are you in for?”
My testing method when I go to speak at churches is that when the pastor picks me up at the airport and as soon as I get to the parking lot, I light up and watch his face and listen to a theologically baseless lecture on how your “body is the temple of the holy spirit” when scripture is clear, the verse is not what enters a man but what comes out of a man: evil thoughts–murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.
So if smoking is such an abomination, so I guess according to this verse I can inhale the smoke but not exhale it, sort of like all these rallies asking to ‘legalize pot smoking’ during my college days, they would inhale and hold it in to get the maximum tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in their lungs while not realizing that THC kills brain cells, permenantly. Ever wonder why they call them pot-heads?
According to our world today this is just perfectly fine. It was rather the strangest thing I have seen coming from a culture in the village of Bethlehem where pot smoking was extremely rare.
Even Christians are becoming like the walking living paranoia I see on my TV screen. You can’t even criticize a man for sleeping with another hairy man even in church circles.
The sign of a depraved nation is when the topic of the day revolves around a man’s skin color or the rights to use his anus become a higher priority than discussing the state of his soul, all the while speaking about enjoying a smoke becomes a theological anathema.
To all the critics, I am ahead of you, sure smoking is unhealthy but it is much healthier than fascism and sodomy.
