Does Our Government Stand With Hitler?
Earlier today, I wrote in praise of those who promote the cause of individual freedom, against the nationalist vision contained in a legal motion filed by lawyers representing the American Department of Justice, who wrote, “When the national security conflicts with an individual’s interest… the interests of the individual must give way.”
It was startling for me, this afternoon, to come across a similar vision of sacrifice of individual rights for the sake of the national good. This time, however, the vision was not articulated by lawyers representing the American government. It was articulated by Adolph Hitler, speaking at Buckeburg on Oct. 7, 1933. Hitler said,
History has shown us what happens when the interest of government security is allowed to overrule the rights of individuals. Unless they want their nation to go the way of Nazi Germany, Americans should not support the right wing ideology that proclaims that individual rights are subservient to the uninterrupted operation of the Department of Homeland Security. Those who do support such an ideology stand on Hitler’s side of history.

Sarah Palin claims that a man called Thomas Muthee used his spiritual powers to gain her the position of Governor of Alaska. When Muthee isn't visiting Wasilla, Alaska's Assembly of God church, he uses his spiritual power to unleash violent mobs against women he accuses of being witches.
That kind of behavior may be acceptable to right wing evangelicals, but it isn't okay with pagan Americans. That's why, as this shirt suggests, Pagans are against Palin in 2008.
