« The Enigma of Stefan Zweig | Main | Republikanische Werte / Republican Values »

Dehumanizing the enemy is widely considered a Nazi rule of propaganda, but it is little known that Hitler himself was deeply inspired by the Anglo-American press. Even today every now and then we find ourselves amused when British papers describe the German soccer teams as 'tanks' and 'huns' on another 'blitzkrieg'. Of course we regard it as some kind of typical British humor, but one can easily imagine how this would end up if the country went to a real war. The population would not be prepared for a chivalrous fight, but for a total war.

In America today, do we have a conflict between the Republicans and the Democrats like between the Nazis and the Communists in the late 20-ies? Once Romney became president, would he stop his followers from the Tea Party and their mixture of racism and religious fundamentalism? Could he resist the opportunity to make the Tea Party a nucleus of an SA-style militia - with Paul 'Röhm' Ryan?

Still there is hope that the American people recognize the signs on the wall and give Obama a landslide victory. Still there is hope the majority of the American people is immune against a propaganda of hatred and defamation.
