If you need any more proof that Alex Jones is at heart a Christian-based Tea Party activist, Prison Planet posts this today:
In this shocking interview available for the first time to Prison Planet.tv subscribers, former Hitler Youth member and World War Two veteran Hilmar Von Campe warns that America’s collective turn away from God is greasing the skids for the state to take over as the ultimate authority, threatening a repeat of the rise of National Socialism, as he warns that the Obama White House and the United States government in general now more closely embrace the political doctrines of the Nazis than they do those of the founding fathers.
Von Campe is a lecturer and author of the book Defeating the Totalitarian Lie: A Former Hitler Youth Warns America.
Von Campe explains how when he returned from the war he was determined to find out how the Germans, a relatively cultured and civil people before the rise of the Nazis, could have allowed a monster like Hitler to implement the Third Reich. Von Campe attributes the fall of Germany to the Nazis partly to “Godlessness,” a collapse in moral standards, and the German people acting contrary to God’s desires.
Alex Jones’ beef with Bohemian Grove is that they worship the “occult.” The Prison Planet twitter feed is filled with stuff like this:
I’m a Christian. We go to the Presbyterian Church. My wife’s a Deacon there and we’ve gone there ever since we came to town. I see that Christianity and values is the basis of our society. . . . 98% of us won’t murder people, won’t steal, won’t break the law and it helps a society to have that religious underpinning. You still need to have the laws but I think it helps to have a people who believe in law and order and who have a moral compass or a moral basis for their day to day life.
That’s nice – Christianity does have good moral precepts. Except the idea that one religion has a better understanding of morality than another isn’t the greatest moral value. Nor is blind faith or subjecting people to that faith a great moral value either.
