    I was appalled last week when my grandons came home with an assignment based on articles found in Scholastic News.  It's an offshoot of the old Scholastic Books.  There on the front cover for all to see was a picture of the Washington Posts story on the DAPL Protest.  A completely left-wing biased article that left out key facts.  Nowhere in the article did it tell the children that the protesters where tresspassing on private property, nowhere did it state that the pipeline does not run across reservation land, it also forgot to mention that more than half the Native American Tribes in the country are for DAPL.  It was written in such a manner as to persuade the children that the entire military of this country were all backing the protesters when in fact, the only military there were all Natives that had served in the military.   Our children are no longer being given both sides of any story.  They are given one side and told that's the entire truth.  What does this do to our children?  It spoon feeds them only the information they want them to have while not allowing them to learn to think for themselves.

      And this is why I see the idea of a voucher system as very important, if they teach bullshit, they loose students and funding, because parents choose to associate with better schools and better teachers.  Nothing more American than good old capitalism grinding an obsolete useless organization into dust, and replacing it with something better.

      When you can't even trust the Scholastic Books series to be truthful and propaganda free we are doomed.    All propaganda is fake news.  I recently helped my daughter research a woman, Sophie Scholls, a German, who at the age of 21 joined a Hitler/Nazism resistance group called the White Rose who opposed the war and German politics at that time.  Being in the resistance group was extremely dangerous.  Long story short, she was caught, given a bogus trial, sentenced to death, and beheaded via guotine that same day.  She was 22.   Her story is so very interesting because it gives a real person account of the indoctrination and brainwashing (beginning  in preschool) that lead to the control the Nazi Party came to hold over the German people.  As I read along I became shocked because I saw so clearly the radical liberal ideology that is being played out here, now, in America.   It's all about control of the masses, gaining power over them.  It is VERY frightening.  Since they lost the presidential election the left has lost their minds, they are frothing at the mouth.  They compare President Trump to Hitler, but don't say why.  It's classic Liberal/Democrat response to something/someone with a different point of view:  promote fear about them  and then smear their character.  I've seen them do this my whole life, I refer to it as fear and smear.  They don't do this with facts, it's done with propaganda.   Watch America, behavior leading up to a Nazi Germany is happening right now and it has nothing to do with President Trump and everything to do with the Alt-left/progressive/radical liberal/Democrat ideology.  Be afraid, be very afraid.

      Patricia, Did you complain to the school although the administrators are undoubtedly aware of that assignment? This is just so scary because our educational standards have fallen so far, seemingly getting less strict for each generation. History has always been sanitized to some extent for lower grades, for instance, not teaching that Jackson is responsible for the Trail of Tears, even though all his advisors advised him against taking such action. It was a tragic situation for Native Americans. But this is different from leaving out ugly stuff. This is indoctrination, pure and simple. In fact, the reason Big Brother was so totally in charge in "1984" without dissent is because they indoctrinated the children. This will not end well. How did we get here?

      I have family that works up there.  This entire protest was all about greed.  The tribes were trying to extort more and more money from the pipeline company until finally they moved the route completely off the reservations leaving the tribes with zilch.  THAT'S what started this whole mess.

      Did EVERYONE on here miss the actual local news story about immense garbage pile left by the protestors? They CAUSED an environmental disaster, that if not cleaned up in the next two weeks, which will take 250 dump truck loads to remove, will run off in the spring thaw into the river nearby, contaminating the water! Wasn't this the very thing they were protesting?! This is why they are not legitimate. The local tribe is begging them to come clean their mess, but to no avail. This is the worst case of littering I've ever seen in my life, far bigger even than that left by the women's march.  Here is the local story. Tell me again, you think these people were there for a good and righteous cause about which they cared. Yeah... they didn't, it was a fad.  http://www.kfyrtv.com/content/news/Sanitation-crews-work-to-remove-massive-amounts-of-garbage-from-DAPL-protest-camp-before-spring-thaw-412954433.html

      Cheryl Jessie Stephan... Were you replying directly to Patricia? She said half of Native American Tribes in this country were backing the pipeline, not the protest. Is that how you read it? I'm not sure how to take your response. Why does Patricia's concern about our children being taught one sided of issues (which is always wrong and propaganda because it is meant then to be coercive) make her a nazi? I think you may be throwing around words in misuse.

      Patricia, I am a teacher and have taught this lesson. 

      Where did you get your info that half of the Native American tribes support it? That is false. The largest modern coalition of tribes gathered to oppose it.

      The camp itself started on private property. The roads are public property  I agree with you about the trespassers. 

      What was the title of the article?

      For me as a teacher the DAPL controversy shows the enduring debate over free speech and peaceful protests. For my students we debated, where do we draw the line between what is okay in protest and what is illegal?

      Your information is partly incorrect.  Native Americans of all tribes are AGAINST the DAPL.  The military that were with the protesters were NOT all Native Americans either.  While some of the protesting was being done on private land, the reason for it is that the pipeline will go UNDER the only water supply for their reservation, and has the likelihood of contaminatin water downstream for millions of people!

      If the DAPL is so safe, why was it rerouted from Bismarck, ND after residents there protested it for the same reasons?

If these people would educate themselves on the procedures of the construction safety measures etc then they have no argument. Most accidents (leaks, np bore outs etc) come from someone digging without permits and damaging the line.

      I am a teacher. When Romney was running against Obama, Scholastic had a picture of both presidents in an article. Obama's pic on the right, Romney's pic on the left. Behind Obama's head, they had added a yellow star, and behind Bush's a dark blue circle. I wondered then if Scholastic was trying to send subliminal messages about who THEY liked. After reading Hitler's biography written in the1950's, I see WAY MORE similarities between the left and Hitler's bully tactics.

      Patricia did you go to the school and protest this assignment...... I would have and I would drag my husband along to give these teachers a history lesson. He was born in a Monarchy, withstood and escaped from communism and lived to see a democracy come to his country of his birth. 

      Though I was born in Post War Germany I have the the same take on the entire situation as Inga has. It is disgusting to see what has become of our great country. 

      I too could tell horror stories  and I know that Inga would be able to understand something my father in law said when they greated a neighbor that returned from prisoneor of war camp in Germany back to Yugoslavia. His words were      "The Germans won and we lost" What he meant was that even though Germany lost the war they got rid of Fascism and Yugoslavia got Communism.

      I don't wish for anyone to have to go through another World War but boy do they ever deserve it, especially those professors whom I can only call communists even though they do not understand any of it.

      There were and are veterans from all walks of life supporting the Native Americans whose entire clean water source IS at risk for decades of contamination if there is any spill. Protesters were and are where they will draw attention to an injustice. The pipeline was moved because whit-Americans complained that they were at risk and politicIan's heard them.

      I agree it did not give the entire story probably because their was not enough room but what they did say was mostly true and what they didn't say was that they were on treaty land not private property and with permission by the corp and private residence and that half the tribe was inaccurate because it isn't near that high but they are not even able to correctly calculate it since there was never a census taken. teach your children that main media reports false information all the time and one needs to see first hand information to be able to believe anything anymore.

      IntegrityImportant....your question "How did we get here?" You are being sarcastic, right? I don't know how old you are or if you have kids....but we got here by allowing the public school system and the Department of Education to have  too much power over the content of cirriculum the students are taught. Some parents have had their hands tied or voluntarily relinguished their responsibilities of teaching their own kids (morals, beliefs, simply respect for others and property) expecting "others" (teachers, youth counselors or group leaders) to "educate" their kids. You understand that I stated SOME parents....not all.

      Patricia Guenther: I agree with your comment and would add that we not only need to teach history, we need to teach the REAL history not the "revised, new and improved" crap they are trying to teach.

      There are actually some people who believe the Holocaust never happened! We need to get the parents involved in the creation of the textbooks to make sure they know what is going into the cirrculum, as well.

      Patricia were your grandsons told that the reason why the land the protestors was Sioux land that the United States took and made private land?  

      Article 2 of the Treaty of Fort Laramie of April 29, 1868 described the boundaries of the Great Sioux Reservation, as commencing on the 46th parallel of north latitude to the east bank of Missouri River, south along the east bank to the Nebraska line, then west to the 104th parallel of west longitude. (15 stat. 635). The Great Sioux Reservation comprised all of present-day South Dakota west of the Missouri River, including the sacred Black Hills and the life-giving Missouri River. Under article 11 of the 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty, the Great Sioux Nation retained off-reservation hunting rights to a much larger area, south to the Republican and Platte Rivers, and east to the Big Horn Mountains.  Under article 12, no cession of land would be valid unless approved by three-fourths of the adult males. Nevertheless, the Congress unilaterally passed the Act of February 28, 1877 (19 stat. 254), removing the Sacred Black Hills from the Great Sioux Reservation.  The United States never obtained the consent of three-fourths of the Sioux, as required in article 12 of the 1868 Treaty. The U.S. Supreme Court concluded that "A more ripe and rank case of dishonorable dealings will never, in all probability, be found in our history."  United States v. Sioux Nation of Indians, 448 U.S. 371, 388 (1980).  

      I think you weren't given both sides of the story when you were going to school as well. There are more native people than you may think that support the reason for fighting for the right to clean water, but you don't have to be native to want your grandsons generation to have the ability to live without having to pay for clean water because their grandparents (yes us) did not fight the corporations who are profiting off of destroying nature. DAPL moved their pipeline from their original map to avoid Bismark and moved it to less than a mile above the Sioux Reservation.

      Keep in mind that the tribe's view is that they aren't trespassing because they own the property as a result of a treaty. Their view is that it's tribal land and was never private property of anyone outside the tribe, nor would it be allowed to be sold outside the tribe.

      That's something that will probably have to be figured out by the courts but the tribe's view is pretty compelling...

      Patricia, you need to find a new source of news! Because any article you read stating the pipeline is not on native land is misrepresenting the facts. No it is not currently on native land, but have plans to cross native lands, that is why the people who live there are protesting. I have a friend who served in the US Navy and lives on the reservation that is protesting the pipeline. Sorry but that is the truth! Alternative facts are lies! Plane and simple, if something is not the truth, it is a lie. Think about it, what is the alternative to the truth? This woman the news article is about was born in 1940, which means she can not tell you anything about the Nazis coming power, because the war was going strong and the Nazis were in complete control on the day she was born.

      You are utterly and completely wrong. You are in fact, lying. You need to learn history properly because you are ignorant. You need to learn about the Treaty of 1851. The road in may be public, but the land itself is not the property of anyone but Native People. They don't need anyone's permission to do what they are doing-quite the reverse. Also, they are shooting people and a woman had her arm blown to pieces-a white women. I'm sure that means more to you than Native lives. Your ignorance is appalling. I hope you do not have children whom you are brainwashing with your lies. I bet you consider yourself a "Christian" as well. They seem to be the most blood thirsty and have questionable ethics.

      Not sure how DAPL has anything to do with Trump being compared to Hitler and not sure where you even got your information. What tribes specifically are FOR DAPL? And please list sources for your information. Also the Vets that went to stand with the Sioux tribe were NOT Native American Ve some may have been there yes but it was actually a Caucasian man who started the whole deployment himself along with other Vets who didn't agree with DAPL. Nowhere did I read that the entire military were against/for DAPL some are doing there jobs others were against it. While the pipeline does not cross treaty land it crosses the river which is the main source of water for that tribe and its people and people downstream.

      @Kate Hall, I have friends who live and work there too. A much different story than what you hear in MSM. The tribes involved took money 5 years ago or so (LOTS of it) to allow the pipeline thru their reservations. That hardly seems like disagreement on the tribes part or "stealing their lands".  Protesters have been nothing but trouble, stealing cattle from neighboring ranches,  destroying property and littering beyond belief. Does the Scholastic article give that information?

      I don't know where you get your information but you are being spoon fed lies! The problem with being either right or left is that either way you're getting biased information and NOT the truth. The property they ARE on IS Native America land...Sacred Burial Land to boot. DAPL somehow managed to get rights or permits to build the pipeline through this land. Of course, Whites have a history of stealing or just taking what isn't there's from the indigenous people. And seriously, you're gonna believe HALF the tribes support DAPL? You gotta be a special kinda stupid! Then again you're probably a Trump supporter so that may explain it. Just about every Native American tribe in the Nation showed up to protest. There hasn't been a showing of unity this big since Little Big Horn, when they all came together to take out Custer. Wow...there are some eerie coincidences between Trump and Custer. This may be Trumps last stand too! lol And the Military backing the Natives, you moron, were not Natives but American Veterans (Marines, Army, etc...). So before you and your consigning buddies on the thread start blaming the education system and start backing an Idiot like DeVos, look in the mirror and see where your stupidity comes from and how your children learn not to take what you or anyone else says at face value!! You accuse them of being taught leftist materials while you, yourself, are spouting conservative rhetoric then complaining they are only getting one side of the story? This is not a story, it is an event, and it only has only one side...the TRUTH!!!

      the natives were killing each other off long before we arrived. The reason it was so easy for us to do after the civil war is that they would not unite. They only wanted unity if their particular tribe was in power. Hindsight is always 20/20 I realize but they certainly would have put up a better fight and been able to negotiate better terms had they united. Also now there would be decendants of warrior classes   So things would undoubtedly be better for them. But I am with you let's teach truth in history. I am sure that our own natives would be better off had they been in China or Russia etc, etc. remember our European decendents went through all of this centuries earlier.  Am sure the Vikings, the Romans, Gaul,  or Egyptians would have been better For our native people, LOL not.

      Scholastic News has an online presence, and it is possible for all IJR readers to view the article in question here: http://magazines.scholastic.com/Top-News/2016/12/a-victory-for-native-americans and judge for themselves whether it is "completely left-wing biased".  

      You claim that children these days are not being allowed to think for themselves, but you show very little independent thinking skills yourself.  You say that the protesters "where (sic) trespassing on private property" but have obviously failed to ask yourself whose property it is.  The protesters have been welcomed by the Standing Rock Indians (and are, therefore, not trespassing).  Those who are trespassing are the construction workers and private security forces.

      You say that "more than half the Native American Tribes in the country are for DAPL".  There are 566 recognized tribes in the US; representatives of 90 turned up to support the protesters.  Does that mean the other 476 are in favor of DAPL?  Unlikely.  I have looked, and I can find no statement of support for DAPL from any tribe.  That doesn't mean they don't exist. Perhaps you would share where you found the information so that we can all weigh both sides of the issue.

I have searched for information about other  Native Tribes that were for DAPL but that information is not coming up... as for them being on private land well that can happen when the Federal Government decides to break a treaty from 1851 in 1974 sell off land and the Treaty was never ratified.... so with regards to factual and unbiased information being passed to children make sure that you are siteing  facts not just garbage that makes its way around the internet "as truth"....  stop believing everything on these conserservatives sites as absolute truth without bias or what's put on a liberal website as all lies... there is a truth its usually in the middle of the two

      I grew up without TV or newspapers. In elementary school my only "news" source was scholastic news. I watched my classmates eat it up. For some reason it felt wrong to me. I was the biggest animal lover yet didn't even enjoy the animal articls as they seemed like political articles to me, even though I did not have the words to describe it as "political" at the time. This was back in the 70s. I imagine it is much worse now.

      I'm a Native American, the oil companies were tresspassing on Native American land. The tribe were force on that land by the federal gov't and a treaty gave it to the tribe including water and mineral rights. Even the federal gov't doesn't have the right to enforce their laws; it's left to the tribe with tribal judges, lawyers and courts. One more treaty broken by the white man. 

      How would you feel if you got a letter today saying that the federal gov't was break the treaty and are bring a pipeline across your land and (cemetery) burial grounds? That your parents, grandparents and other family members graves would be defied.

      We have to stop pinning these travesties on Presidents we hate and get the root cause which is an overreaching bureaucracy thatreally runs our country and benefits from a "Dumbed Down" populace and a Propaganda Ministry (aka the MSM) that serve them.

      Although it happens, the media doesn't lie so much as they SPIN half truths.  This is the principle tool of the Primary Media Outlets and the Public School System.  In most cases they omit pertinent information.  When someone comes along and points that out with, what one could honestly call "alternative" facts, they are branded (ala Alinsky's rules for radicals) as lies and part of a "vast right wing conspiracy" in an effort to marginalize facts.  

      And I have to push back on Edward Itle, In this comment string, this has been going on for decades.  Going back before Brian Williams.  Anecdotally, I came across a magazine from 2002 reporting on a study that exposed how poorly the Public School system is educating our children.  Mind you these are kids born during the Reagan/Bush presidencies.  The article illustrated: 22% of American Teens didn't know what country the US fought in the Revolutionary War and 24% didn't know the combatants of the Civil War. 1 out of 4 kids!

    Most of us havent experienced what the feeling was like during World War 2.....911 was  bad enough to realize that what we have in this country means alot.

    ...but the attacks had halted, Thank God after that horrid day...and We didnt KNOW who the enemy was, they looked like us andblended in with us.

    ..they dont wear uniforms anymore so they can be easily picked off.

      College kids dont have minds of their own, their brains are mush like a soft puddy and professors know this.....thats why they call it SILLY PUDDY.

    ...maybe only a choice few will flee the barrage of nonsense that professors instill into their heads... and think for themselves...not be brainwashed to turn against free speech and your own government..

    .  But...my mom had said that that Nazi take over was very frightening back then... cause Hitler was taking countries one after another and they worried he was eventually going to come to the US.....BUT he was stopped...GOOD PREVAILED as it will DO NOW...cause GOD IS ON OUR SIDE.....  We have a war in this country now and we have to stand behind Trump 1000%!!!

      " People coming here should fit in not make themselves stand out as radicals.  "

      That's typically what actually happens or at least they try. Unfortunately you have people in the US who don't WANT them to assimilate without throwing away everything that makes them THEM - and I do mean everything - and even then they still wouldn't be able to assimilate, because they'll always look like "Arab Muslims" (if we're talking about people from the Middle East, regardless of their actual ethnicity or religion) to some people. Assimilation requires BOTH parties to want it, and there seem to be enough who don't want people from other cultures in the US at all.

      Amen. I wasn't even born, but for reasons that had nothing to do with my family, I don't know why, as soon as I heard of it, by age 8-10, I was reading everything I could find, and alarmed my parents about it. And I took it all personally, too.

      But they couldn't discourage me from reading it all, and I did. I've never been sorry for that. And instilled an interest in my sons in knowing the Truth about such things. I think they know more than I do, by now, and have impressed their teachers very much with the knowledge of History they brought to the schoolrooms, when they were still in school.

      I'm 65 now. Actually, I was playing on a statue of Davy Crockett by the time I was 4-5 yrs old, but it was several more yrs before I could read well enough to read this kind of history. So however it happend, I was marked early to care about these things and how p;eople treat eachother.

      Always interesting to see a lot of people now who are brutal to others, but when the shoe is on the other foot, they have no self-examination and are shocked and angry when they get what they themselves previously dished out to everyone else. Very strange, and you wonder how they can be so sensitive for themselves and so callous and heartless at the exact same time.

    Awesome article...All those prostestors need to realize that all they're doing is making things worse by their own actions...Trump is not even close to what Hitler was and honestly to compare the two is ridiculous. Hitler was a anti semtaic horrible psycopath that tried to kill off all Jews through genoocide and unspoeakable crimes. Trump, although not perfect, is not trying to gas anyone, kill anybody, or otherwise extermite a whole race, which is more then I can say for the terroists...The young generation protesting today are just following the crowd and doing it because unfortunately people aren't taught respect and manners anymore...If more people were taught this and what actually happened in history then maybe there would be less problems and chaos...

      History tells us that almost no Germans knew about Hitler's extermination of the Jews, at least until way after most damage had been done. History tells us that Hitler gained popularity from fueling and offering solutions to the frustrated, angry, resentful population wanting to return to the good ol' days of traditional values after Europe humiliated them, a too liberal democracy took over, and their economy suffered. History tells us that the Germans of the 30's are no different from any other human population under similar circumstances.

      David I too studied this period There is more to Hitler's rise to power than the resentment and anger of a German people brought to their knees by the crippling terms of the Versaille Treaty post WW1. Hitler's rise was aided by his creation of the seemingly wholsome Hitler's Youth League where whole swathes of young Germans away from family were being brainwashed and encouraged to give their loyalty to the league ahead of both family and faith.

      Then came the systematic undermining of the education system with lies and faux history re the Jewish people to help fan the flame of antisemitism which was consistently portayed as a key source of Germany's woes.

      Add to all this the lack of unity in German politics with various splinter party groups Hitler was able to exploit the weaknesses of each group against one another.

      While all this was bubbling he had his thugs organising violence in the streets and on university campuses.

      Does the latter description ring a bell?

      In any society if freedom of speech begins to be made impossible by people screaming and shouting down any opinion that differs from their own you have a society that is beginning to break down. Such a society is in great danger.

      Mr Trump whether you like him or hate him has inherited an America under seige. He faces a motivated and dedicated group of people whose sole ambition is to enter the USA and create terror.However he also faces the same threat domestically with people here who make no secret of the fact that while enjoying the chance to live in the USA they want and believe it is their right to reject its long held values.

      This is a broad problem and not confined to one group of immigrants alone. The solution seems to me that if the law is broken every accused person is brought to trial and given just punishment If someone is found guilty and they prove to be an illegal immigrant or someone granted temporary asylum they should be deported.

      In addition since some have been found by security to have lied and misrepresented their identity to gain asylum the FBI and CIA should be able to go before a judge with evidence and that person's citizenship be revoked and they too deported.

      This would help those peopel in each immigrant group who have been victimised by extremists

      The sad thing is if this battle is undermined by the type of disunity that prevailed in Germany it will leave a vaccuum for a real dictator to emerge .

      Trump may ahve not realise the sheer scale of complexity of political wheeling and dealing but he ought to be given the same degree of time and largesse as his predecessor. He has barely been in the job a fortnight.

      I'm a child of the 60's.  The Viet Nam war wouldn't have ended if we the youth hadn't protested.  The same things were said about us in those days.  We are seeing the protests because of so many people wanting their voice to be heard.  The popular vote in this country does mean something.  It means that the majority of the people in this country who voted did not agree with the Trump administration's way of doing things.  It is not just the youth who have been protesting.  While I don't agree with violence and riots, the majority of the protestors were peaceful.  There's always a few bad eggs in every basket.  The same happened in the 60's protests.  When people protest in numbers it is a statement.  And it is imiportant that people who watch and don't understand find out what the true issues are before making a decision as to whether it's warranted or not.

    What a breath of fresh air, to hear from someone who truly knows about Nazism & hitler because our young people have no idea the true meanings.  History books are being rewritten hiding the truths, brainwashing them to true nazism, actually suppressing speech.  That's how Hitler's brown shirts started it.  It is so apparent during these protests turning to riots. The leader at UC Berkeley riots admitted they should be even more militant.  These followers need to wake up.  If you don't know true history, you will repeat it. They will conquer from within because they are blindly following these evil happenings.

      and she does, when was born in 1941? Really??? Come on. Her story is what her parents told her it happened... my mom was born in 1933 and she indeed could tell me something, but not all the connections and meanings of the whole story. My grandpa, yes, he was in WWI and WWII and he lost both of his legs stepping on mines as a doctor. He told me a lot. When he came back, my grandma had to carry him on her back upstairs to the toilets and downstairs to go outside. They lived in a bombed house the only left with four floors and only one toilet / bathroom for 2 floors together. So yes, they could tell me something, my parents (dad 1931 mom 1933) just from BDM (Bund deutscher Mädel) or HJ (Hitler Jugend), where they were happy in, because at that age they had no idea whatsoever what was really going on. It was something similar to the Pathfinders Club now, ofcourse with a certain meaning behind it, but the kids at that stage didn´t realize it. When they got 15-16 years old, they got more brainwashed than. So Inga Andrews was hardly 4 years old when the war was over, if it ´s true, that she is 76 now.

      Hitler's rise to power and Trumps rise to power do have signeificant similarities and differences  that both sides need to remember. Hitlers youth groups ensured that he had a young power base willing to become soldiers for him when he rose to power, Trump doesn't have these. They were a great resource to him, but they were not his only resource. Hitler also rose to power by convincing the older generations he would restore the power and pride to Germany which resonated with the laboring classes. Trumps "Make America great again" slogan, his disrespect for his political opponents and any media that doesn't favor him, using immigrants as a scape goat, along with him gaining the Presisdency by appealling to the older middle class Americans does closely resemble how Hitler rose to power. Further, once they had power both Trump and Hitler attacked the media trying to discredit anybody that pointed out the dangerous flaws in thier plans. Another similarity is Hitler gave power to certain political allies and generals he trusted without reguard to thier quailifications for the positions. Trump is doing the same thing with his cabnet positions. This is very dangerous because the records indicate some of those people were more involved in the events of the Holicost then Hitler himself was. I am not saying it is happening again, however the similarities should not be ignored and we need to keep our eyes open not only for Trump but for the people he is giving power. If we are overly cautious of Trump it isn't going to harm the contry or the world. If we are not, as the Germans were not, then it is possible it could re-occur. I pray the people comparing Trump to Hitler are wrong about him but keeping my eyes open to the long term effects of his actions still is good advice that I will heed and I think we all should. 

      I think what Isabell meant is she would not have been old enough to remember the rise of Hitler to power which is what people compare Trumps rise to power with. Kathryn & Kathleen, yes, a child that young can remember tramatic events such as the war. However, the rise of Hitler to power prior to the war is something she would have been to young to understand because Hitler rose to power in the 1920's and early 1930's before this woman would have been born. Her saying she remembers the rise of Hitler to power when he really came into power in 1933, when he was able to dictate German policy, (her age places her birth in the 1940-1941 area) is simply not true. Further, the memories of the young are not set in stone they shift with time. There was a traumatic event that happened to me when I was 2 years 8 months old that almost killed me and left me in the hospital for over 3 months getting out just before my 3rd birthday. My aunt and I remember the the event in one, way which indicates my brother lead me into the situation that almost killed me. My mother insist that is inaccurate and it occured in a different way. My father has a different version as well. My brother says he does not recall the event. So who is to be believed? We all witnessed the event and yet there are three very different stories. As time passes people interpretations of a story shift into the actual story until it is recalled by them as fact and no longer opinion. This is why a written testomony from the time period is given more credit that the rememberences of a person that live through it and many decades later. In this womans remeberences she doesn't seem to recall she was not alive to rememebr what she claims to rememeber. This does cast doubt on her story as it should. The person interviewing her should have asked such questions so she could properly respond, not doing so was bad journalism.

      Thank you for proving my point, Scott. I could take your comment and apply it to the article above. At best, this article is a poor excuse for journalism, and at worst it takes a simplistic argument about a comparison between the current administration and Hitler Germany and makes what might be an even more simplistic argument that the opposition is behaving more like the Nazi party (from some random woman who was most likely a toddler during the Third Reich and whose family appears to have been on the wrong side of history). I'm curious what your views are.

      Bridget, I'm not trying to make the case that we have a dictator for president, and I never just listen to someone and take them at their word. i analyze their arguments with a critical eye as I figure out if I can learn something from them. You make a lot of assumptions about how educated I may or may not be, but that does not change the fact that the quotes in the article present an extremely simplistic argument about Nazi Germany (Hitler "pulled in the youth to miseducate them" and connections to our current experience and are kind of all over the place in terms of presenting a valid and coherent argument. That diminishes the value of her story from my perspective. Not only that, but the comments about American society show a lack of understanding of current events in America when she accuses the young people of "rioting and destroying property," compares her "vetting" to the vetting process used today, professors telling students to "go after freedom of speech," and the "demonstrators can't tell you why they are demonstrating."

      As far as polls are concerned, you betray a lack of understanding about how polling works. Yes, the results were surprising to the pollsters (they were not so surprising to me), but the actual results mostly fell within the margin of error for pretty much all of the major polls. Polling is an inexact science, but I'm not sure why you are bringing that up here.

      Finally, Hitler did not rise to power by "doing good deeds." I would encourage you to do some reading about how Hitler actually gained popularity as a mesmerizing outsider who spoke to the frustrations of a country diminished by war and economic depression.

      There are those who heed warnings and decipher between right and wrong.  When a person who is affiliated with a country tells you about a dictator whether she was 2 or 20 at the time, we should all listen. Whether you like Trump or not we are not even close to a dictatorship.  For you to even say such a statement goes to show that you are very uneducated about oppressive government, occupation and propaganda.  I have spoken to people who lived in Russia and endured the KGB.  I can tell you one thing.  When they came to America they would not even speak, they beleived that the KGB would find out and come to America and take them back where they would be sent to camps or killed.  Tell me one law that has been passed under the partial Trump Administration that would be considered by a dictator.  Our president has the right to make a ban against any country he feels would be a threat.  Trump has been lied about in the main stream media since he decided to run.  Check the articles printed and look for the real facts.  At this moment the biggest deception our country has witnessed is the polls that said someone was going to win and at a landslide.  I dont have the time or the energy to print every poll that said Trump was losing or Trump said this or he said that.  Hitler rose to power by generosity and giving food to the hungry doing good deeds.  When he acheived power he showed his true colors.  Read the real facts.

      I am in agreement with you @Bo. I too am baffled by the accusations of the Liberal agenda to brainwash students at colleges. 

      Yes, professors have political views too, both Conservative and Liberal. Yet I've noticed that many of my teachers have refrained from discussing these views, preferring to let the students debate amongst themselves to build critical thinking skills. 

      On a closing note? I think its ludicrous that your reply to the argument had to be 'hidden'. What's so bad about an evenhanded critique? ,':|

      Exactly. Much of what is frightening about the current moment is not a literal conflation of Trump with dictators of the past. It's the signs that are starting to happen which overlap with disconcerting accuracy. Some of the most frightening are the actual attempts, right now, to criminalize peaceful protest; charge journalists covering actual events with felonies for being present at the events; ban select news organizations from covering White House press conferences; the Trump administration's baseless, enraged, methodical aspersions that journalists are somehow evil and untrustworthy; and a score of other conflicts of interest unfolding daily.   And no, Kathy ... people don't deserve freedom of speech under circumstances you dictate. They deserve freedom of speech all the time (and you may want to lay off the caps lock, it doesn't do much for your credibility) ;). Toodles.

      No I don't think journalists threat to freedom of speech is a bigger threat to the greater good of our country. I think children are our future and if they are being taught biased propaganda in school at a young age it allows them to grow up to be liberal haters. I'm all for freedom of speech if the journalists could actually report the TRUTH and not the propaganda lies that I am constantly bombarded with these days. Children should also be taught the TRUTH and both sides of the situations, not just what the liberals want them to hear.

    Ted Durham mentions that a now 76-year-old who lived in Hitler's Germany would have been too young to remember much. My friend Elfriede Mollon, an author with books (see Amazon) about  her war experiences told me that the years after the war were almost worse. She lived in Berlin after the war. Food supplies and building materials and everything else was almost non-existent. She would have been a little older than the lady who posted, so she does remember it well.

      Barbara, your friend is correct that very young children remember these traumatic experiences. They are seared into my brain forever and the postwar years were absolute hell. If it weren't for the wonderful GI's we would have surely starved. I remember the smoldering ruins of our big brownstone house and walking by nothing but ruins on my way to school (which was damaged too). My grandparents suffocated in their basement along with many others on Dec. 4, 1944. That day cost over 6000 souls their lives in my hometown from bombings. Just a few days before my grandfather saved my life by rushing me to the same basement during an air raid. It was such a dark time that you can never forget it. I'm hoping to write a book as long as I still can and before I die. If people could see this as a warning about Socialism and how it can destroy societies if they don't stay vigilant. Hillsdale College has a free Constitution 101 class that should be required learning for all citizens. I so highly recommend it and I will take it again soon.

    Trump is no more Hitler than Obama was Hitler. I am so tired of these Hitler comparisons. There was one Hitler and he systematically caused the death of millions of people. When another politician starts ordering the deaths of innocent people (or his cronies do it) then we can call him Hitler. 

    As for the dumbing down of America and the subjects not being taught in school - I am an educator and can speak directly from experience. This did not start under Obama, but under W. Bush and Obama did nothing to help it. The mandated high stakes testing has only benefitted Pearson at the expensive of our children. We don't have time to teach creativity, problem solving, or give children time to "get their hands dirty." 

    If if you are upset about people protesting, then sorry but protesting is a FUNDAMENTAL right given to us by the first amendment. You can turn off the tv or look away, but the most important and greatest changes in our county were because people spoke up and demanded change. 

    The United States is ready for change. Unfortunately we thought that change was Trump. He is not the change we are looking for. He is a man only out to benefit himself at our expense.

I mean, four years of having your country bombed off and on might stick out to even a kid,  don't you think? And at some point maybe someone told her about the Nazi dictator that had been running the country,  and was the cause of all of the said destruction? What are you trying to refute here?

      I am 65 and have a lot of memories under 5 yrs old, including the first house I lived in which a handful of relatives confirmed my memories were accurate and we moved from there when I was 15 months old. I have lots of memories about the early houses we lived in, changes in my grandmother's home, and the different houses my other grandmother lived in when I was 5 and under - and when my younger sisters were born when I was 18 months and 3 1/2 yrs old. No trauma at all involved in any of the events except when I deliberately drove one grandmother to have to spank me when she kept me the week my youngest sister was born - because I firmly believed she would NEVER lay a hand on me and this was my chance to do things in her house I knew my parents would "KILL" me for! but after a week of b eing an absolute terror, having a blast, boy, she turned me over and paddled my behind, I was shocked but not hurt! That shocked all her children who ever heard of it, that it didn't hurt me enough for me to remember THAT. Just that she did it. I don't remember all I did, but sliding down bannisters and painting canned goods with Bar-B-Que sauce and the feather duster were two of them. Oh, being horrified to wear someone else's bigger than me, shorts and shirt to go swimming, bcz my bathing suit wasn't there, and I had NEVER gone swimming in street clothing before in my whole entire 3 1/2 yrs of life! Granny thought I was some BRAT that week. Was she relieved that when I tattled on her as soon as Mom and Dad came in the door, HE SPANKED ME TOO, because she had had to. WOW was I shocked that day. LOL!

      Frankly my dears, I could go on for hours with such very early memories.

    I dont have a copy of Schoolastic News.... And the way Patricia Guenther protrays the "water protectors" is inaccurate. I've been watching what has been happening at Cannon ball for quite some time through the eyes of grass root media from within the camps. Any news from Morton County Shariffs is sugar coating the biased reality from their point of view. Sad that the treaty between the US government and the Lakota has been dishonored by big corporate oil, the predator in cheif (trump), and the US army corp of engineers. US history books avoid acknowledging the American holocoast: 

    America continues to treat Native Americans with abhorrent display of fascism. For example The Dakota access pipeline Fucking fascist above the law officers cower behind their weapons, tasers, body armor, batons, armored vehicles... 

    The families are standing for their right for survival in this so called "Christian" nation that have for years trampled on the American indigenous. 

    There is no justification for men in uniform and full battle gear to cowardly strong arm human right for survival. These fascist aggressors are in it for the money and are no better than the thinking of Donald Trump, David Duke and U.S. Col John Chivington (Sand Creek Massacre) 

    Apparently I believe America has only been viewing National media though the eyes of the North Dakota County sheriffs Dept. limiting its view to what is actually happening and needs to care for the native peoples fight and right for survival. 

    I served in the U.S. Army and find it appalling that the fascist aggressors are sadistically and cowardly using military tactics upon the innocent: mace, dogs, batons, forced submission, strip search, micro & sound waves....one can imagine what the locker room talk is like from these fascist aggressors, as they proudly claim their manhood over the unarmed. 

    Fascism with an American flag on the on the shoulders of ignorance and hate.... I would rather die at the hands of the U.S. Government like my ancestors did and have and a greater honor with my people, along with my native brothers and sisters from different tribes....than to know that I wore a US Army uniform that committed atrocities to Native kind. 

    Treaties continue to be broken by corporate thugs that are backed up by fascist paramilitary and governing authorities. 

    The day will come when I return to mother earth and be with my Dine warriors and family and all the fellow Native warriors that have stood up to the U.S Government where I can sing and dance in spirit as I do now in memory of them.

    That was powerful. She said we quit teaching history. The saying " Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it" (paraphrasing). We have a Constitution. Why? Not so people can immigrate here to do what they want. The early people came here because of religious persecution, no opportunity, no hope and some very wealthy viewing it as a business opportunity. Many had nothing in common except the goal of building a better life and place. People kept coming. Why? They saw opportunity in the way life was here. Sure bring your culture, religion, heritage. But they came to be a part of what we do. Living how we live. Being a part of. If they wanted to be just like they were, why come at all? It's like moving to a new school district because of their great reputation and test scores. Then when you get there, expect them change what they do to fit how you they did it in the Old district, and achieve the success the new district had before. You move there to change and get better. And are thankful for the chance. That's what the Founding Fathers saw, and the Constitution is the set of rules and procedures of how we do it. Not the other countries laws, language ect. Immigrants adapt to America not the other way around. Also, early immigrants came to work and build which most do now. They didn't come with the expectation of privilege and support. They came to be like we are, not like they were. If it was working where they were, why come here? If you want what we have its yours! Here's how we do it. We fight a lot and disagree. And that's why it works! But we still follow the instructions and procedures and rules. The Constitution. They will too in order to stay. My ancestors knew it, and were thankful for it. So we're just about everyones. So was this lady from Germany.

One of my kids is a college student and complains about what he's being force fed regarding global cooling, global warming, climate change or whatever term they decide to use this year, and I suggest he say what's on his mind that poses an opposite logical point of view. He tells me that in order to get good grades they have to buy into it and he says it's just not worth it. Thankfully he happens to be intelligent enough to have his own point of view regardless of what they're spewing.

      To assume that being a German girl in Nazi Germany is like "being a daughter of a slave owner" is to completely ignore history and trivialize the suffering of a great many people. There is just no comparison at all.    

      Hitler started by abusing his own people. Before the mass killing of the Jews even started, there was a euthanasia program already in place for killing Germans, or anyone else, who were deemed "unworthy of life." These included handicapped people and even new babies who were considered trash and killed like unwanted dogs.

      Beside the killing mentioned above, to live in Germany during this time as ANY person was to live in *fear* of Nazi informants and even neighbors turning you in for saying the most innocent or off-the-cuff derogatory comments about Hitler or the Reich. The huge rallies that he held were heavily policed and often required compulsory attendance, whether you agreed with them or not. Not saluting him when you were told would get you beaten up or worse.   

      Many of the leading Nazis had dark hair and brown eyes. Even Hitler himself was not a textbook example of the "master race" he was touting as perfect. Some Jews had blond hair and blue eyes, but that didn’t save them. Many blonde kids were ripped away from their parents, given to new ones, and forced to be brainwashed into hating their real parents.   

      How many slave owner's daughters can claim any of this happened to them?

    You  people who believe this story are flipping idiots. Not only is the appearance completely fake and from an unreliable right-wing source, the wowoman pictured is not even old enough to have known anything about Hitler's rise to power or the tactics used. The man was chancellor and fuhrer from 1933-1945. Even if this woman was born at the end of his reign that would put her in her 70s, you morons.

      We conservatives do not hate women, we hate paying for your abortions. Abortions are mostly done to black babies, we do hate that.

      We don't hate immigrants, we just want them to be here legally.

      We dont hate kids, we actually have kids, we want them to be well and honestly educated. We want them to be strong enough to weather all the chaos that life is going to throw at them.

      How is she wrong?  She never said anything about democrats or republicans other than she is neither.  Obama did not uphold the constitution.  Who said they hate women, immigrants, blacks and kids?  No one.  Where are you getting your information from?   ISIS has said they will infiltrate the Syrian refugees with ISIS souldiers to get them in the US so Trump wanted to stop the refugees and immigration from certain places to make sure it was the vetting was tough enough.  Obama put a temporary hold on refugees from Iraq in 2011 and without riot, protest, destruction, ect.  8 US Code 1182  (f) Suspension of entry and Imposition of restrictions by President:   Whenever the President finds that entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into he United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclomation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or noimmigrants, or impost on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

      @turryle no you do not pay for abortions. No federal money is given to pay for abortion, this has been law since Bill Clinton signed the Hyde ammendment in 1997. If your state gives money for abortions, I do not know as I do not know where you live, talk to your governor & do not complain about the federal governemnt that agrees with you.

      As far as Education the last major help education recieved was from the educational Policy of the first George Bush, which was written for him by the head of the Governors assoiation Bill Clinton, that was continued during the Bill Clinton administration. the 2nd Bush and Obama have been a hinderence to public education for the past 16 years. Betsy Devos herself spent years undermining public education and placing her as its head is like putting an Atheist in charge of the Church. For the immediate future, our children will be paying the price.

    She was raised by German parents who were not jailed for dissent ... and who didn't cut themselves off from a family member (re: her aunt) who actively supported genocide. I'm not sure we should be taking her word on political situations and whether Trump is a good guy. One never entirely rejects the prejudices of one's youth without a great deal of dedicated work and research, and she's not referencing any historians or other perspectives beyond those of her German family... 

    Maybe instead of asking the children of perpetrators and their sympathizers, we should be asking some of the Jewish survivors?  (Here's a really balanced article on the subject, showing both views: http://jewishjournal.com/nation/212949/   ...  and here's a more opinionated one: http://www.haaretz.com/world-news/u-s-election-2016/.premium-1.753676)

    To ScarletRedRose,  people like you do not understand that the educational system is broke in America. I grew up in a poor school because I was in foster care. . Do not even begin to tell me that there are no differences between  The richer side of town and the poor side of town. There are vast differences within the same educational system.  I had great potential in math and science. Yet our side of town did not have trigonometry. The better schools dead within the same school district. They also had chemistry with chemistry experiments. We did not . Not only was I student in a school that was not given all the things that should've been given within the same school district that gives the richer side of town much more amenities that it does the poor students, but I also spent years teaching .  I am a retired teacher. I taught on both sides of tracks. I taught in the public education sector.  The public education system thanks that student to score in the 60 percentile is great. Mind you, that is out of 100%. If you look at the grading system that is a D grade. Barely passing.  My scores were some of the best in my school district and I was actually told to dumb down what I was teaching because my scores were too high and basically making all the other teachers look bad. Students on the poor side were never challenged, even the gifted students. All the government wanted was for us to teach them   The basics, so that they can grow up and be good little worker bees, so that they will pay their taxes and they will think that those in Washington are smarter than they are. So they won't question anything. Our children are not taught both sides, not by a long  shot. They are taught only from the Democrat point of view. In the school system there is no other view. I find this offensive as a Republican.  It amazes me that we would teach children rivers in China and yet my kids couldn't name rivers in America. Useless education. We are supposed to teach them like they are playing a quiz game and as long as you get the answers to the test correct,  that's all that matters. We are a top-heavy administration where these people make 3×25 times with a teacher makes. Each of these administrators have such jobs called director of life sciences of high school, director of life sciences in middle school, director of life sciences for elementary school.  Each of these administrators needs at least one secretary. None of them step foot in the classroom and none of them do anything that adds to my teaching abilities. These are positions created for political favors and political thank you's. Nothing more  and nothing less. It is a huge waste of money. And it is where a lot of our educational dollars go.

      I do understand.  I grew up in an area that had a really excellent school district.  When I was in the 8th grade we moved into a rural district.  I got straight A's only because I had already learned the same things earlier that the rural school district was teaching with old books for my grade.  I didn't understand the differences until I experienced it.

    My great aunt was born in Austria and lived through the war. Mussolini gave her region to Hitler as a "gift", and they were forced to pack up and leave everything behind. They went to live in another region. They had to learn a new language. After the war, they were given the choice to become German citizens, or they could return to Italy. Her father chose to return to his homeland, so they picked up again and went back, however, not with the emotional scars endured from Hitler's brainwashing and damage done by his dictatorship ways. My aunt told me one experience that she has never forgotten. Hitler and his brigade came marching  through the streets. You were required to salute him as he passed by. If you did not, they would arrest you, drag you off and beat you to death, or shoot you to death where you stood. This never has left her.

    You were a child in Nazi Germany. You didn't read the news and hear his speeches as he rose to power.  True, you remember the aftermath, but surely you were not mature enough to remember his rhetoric. Therefore, your point is about as valid as mine if I say "Trump IS like Hitler". But I'm not going to say that. Because I don't know. What I do know is this, he is not fit to be president and was elected by those who haven't grasped that it's the 21st Century. We WILL be a global society one day, if human civilization doesn't implode, so why slow progress? Building walls? Travel bans? Trade restrictions? That's like stopping your child's feet from growing by binding them.

    Whoever says otherwise is doing the unthinkable~misleading people!  

    Support whomever you wish but, please, know that those who do NOT follow TRUMP as often fired, silenced, or threatened which leads ME (in my humble opinion) to question whether or not HE is fit to be President!  He USES people, manipulated them and the media to the point where we have (in many cities) mass chaos.  No other president has EVER had that affect!

    HE is dividing our great nation ... not uniting it.

    This is the genuine article as I can was born and grew up under Hitler as well. My mother was in the Hitler Jugend where they were indoctrinated with propaganda and she ultimately was sent on a date with an Arian officer because Hitler wanted the pure race propagated, hence me! She never married this man and I never knew him. He could have fathered many children for all I know. Then the American occupation forces came in and they helped keep us alive with food donations because we were starving. Because of their kindness toward us I knew I was going to America one day. That day came in 1966 and I became a proud citizen and have a large family who are doing quite well. It has not been easy along the way but I have seen our freedoms eroded in the last decades. Now we have a chance to retrieve America to her greatness and we hope it is not too late! The people who call President Trump a Hitler have no clue about our Constitution and they don't know that we are a Constitutional Republic. We need to get back to basic education instead of social engineering which is being taught today in colleges. Wake up America, we can do better!!

    The destruction (cattle and bison killed, horses shot with arrows and bullets, bridges damaged by fire, military trucks and other vehicles burned, buildings in Bismarck...including the Capitol damaged by graffiti, windows smashed, over a hundred truckloads of waste removed and hauled to landfill, construction equipment burned) all caused by the DAPL protesters.  The net damages are estimated at several million dollars!  Why should the taxpayers have to pick up the cleanup tab?  These costs should be apportioned to the anarchists that were there.

    In the future, all such protest groups MUST first post an insurance bond to cover the damages these hoodlums commit.  Additionally all protesters must register with law enforcement agencies before being allowed to set up camp.  Protesting is one thing the destruction of other's property is outside the bounds of civility.

    This account is touching. It is brave of Inga Andrews to share her story. Inga's childhood experience is evocative and valid. But is that childhood experience the best source evaluating protections Trump's administration would like to dismantle, compared to policies of past regimes that leaned toward fascism? Is that not the probing evaluation Inga calls for--a critical interrogation of history? This narrative is designed to pull at your heart strings, to show you how much Inga suffered, struggled, felt pain, and gave up parts of herself to 'respect' the existing culture in America. It panders to values its sympathizers hold dear--order, traditional leadership, feelings of loyalty, peace, low confrontation, sacrifice for an imagined whole, distrust of those who position themselves as 'elite,' a reliance on that which is past and familiar and a distrust of things that are new. But what, specifically, is the America Inga talks about here? What powerful, protecting, big-daddy leader rewards her when she submits, exatly? She is praised for humbly assimilating, but assimilating to what ... ? Why should Inga be ashamed to 'be a German?' Is anyone even asking that question? America is great, but do you ask yourself why? Also, I suppose it is obvious that although Inga identifies herself as part of 'the enemy' and therefore deserving of detention and 'extreme vetting', she is in fact white, making it easier for her to assimilate culturally. Yes, she was vetted extensively, but how many of us know about the vetting processes that already exist for immigrants and refugees? To get a green card? It is thorough and tough. It is true, America does need to grow up. But growing up absolutely does not mean shutting up, submitting, turning your mind off, turning your heart off, continuing on in a state of happy denial, whistling cheerful tunes to block out things that are wrong. Making a country safe doesn't happen by simply blocking out people who don't look, think, walk, talk, dress, sound, smell, and act like you. There is no big daddy. There is nobody who will protect you because you have been good and followed the rules. Growing up absolutely does not mean, 'Don't protest.' Exercising free speech is not an act of violence. Growing up--darling, comfortable, priviliged America--does not mean making everyone like you--it's going to mean that you become uncomfortable as the system is expanded to include those outside your bubble. Your temporary discomfort is going to be part of America growing up. America becomes safe when everyone respects one another and thinks before reacting, and it's not a two-sided thing. It's a multi-sided thing. Do you, too, have a 'burning desire to be an American?' Then how about you stay up late tonight learning about people who are different to you. If you also think this contains a Christian element, how about you spend the weekend doing some of those things Jesus said to do--helping the stranger, those less fortunate, removing that plank from your own eye before you take the splinter out of your neighbours? Somebody needs to finally define what 'makes America Great' and if your answer is, 'well obviously it's being like me, everyone needs to be like me and I am the greatest!' then maybe that's something you sit with for a while and chew on. Trump isn't Hitler, Trump is Trump, but he absolutely will not protect or save you or the things you value. In short, this article substitutes feelings for facts, and is therefore feel-good but full of holes.

    Thank you Justen Charters and this wonderful lady,  for this report. Except for God's Word,  I believe this is one of the most effective and important pieces of truth I have read in a very long time. I support Donald Trump because I hear this kind of common sense in his vision and belief. He comes wrapped up in the personhood of a very adept businessman who, with God's help for such a time as this, is a successful billionaire - he uses his own money for this job and will only take $1.00 per year for a salary as our President. 

    His moral resolve has been a work in progress, as it is for all of us, but his foundational care for a nation and a world of people he truly cares about, has brought him to the pinnacle of America's leadership, right under the ultimate leader, God our Creator. He is not a slick, slippery, seasoned politician who has learned to be cunning at taking shots below the belt without most of the media or country even noticing it. No, he takes a shot below the belt from a corrupt and broken government official, and then delivers a very unpolished below the belt retort, right out in front of God and man. As a Christian man, he may have to learn to hold back the deserved punch and ask God what he should do to defend himself against the blow he was just given. God will set him up for success in a way that only God can do. We do not hold a candle to God's vengence. He knows exactly how to let a person's sin turn on them without him or us lifting a finger against those who make unGodly choices. God would probably tell him, "Do what is right and just, and I will have your back." This is the same partnership between Trump and God that brought about the miracle on election day 2016:  God says, 'Donald, you keep working as hard as you can to stand for me and what is right and just, and I will do the rest. Watch and enjoy. All righteousness comes from the glory of the Creator.'  It was awesome and still has the opposition shaking in their boots! 

    We who support his cause and his intentions to bust the hard shell of corruption that has stifled America, need to keep reminding him that we, like God, have his back as long as he keeps asking God to point the way. Be a bit less retaliatory, Mr. President, or you may abort God's even better justification plan. We need you to be strong for 4-8 more years!   

    Justen and wonderful German woman, thank you both, again. God bless you. You do not understand how much good you both have done for America and our President.  I pray he reads all that you and I have said. Pass it on to him.

      The professors aren't radical, they are living in reality. There are more liberal professors than conservative professors but to say they are radical is a huge leap. This administration is pushing the limits of what the Constitution allows and tiptoeing the line between old American values and a disintegrating system

    Thank you for this article.  Education is KEY and that is why liberals want government run educational systems in place:  to use for purposes of Brainwashing!  I grew up as an American in Argentina and even though we had a private school there, the government of that country REQUIRED all students grades 1-6 to have 1/2 day classes in Spanish and about the history of Argentina In order for the American Private School to exist.  This should only be required of a government run school.  This is why our school system is failing our youth and I totally agree that is is a scary situation that we are seeing on college campuses.

      Oh you mean how Republicans want to "preserve the rights" in the Constitution but news is labelled as fake or "alternative news" if it isn't to Trumps liking? Freedom of speech has begun to be chipped away. Sorry dude but I think Fox News is filling your smooth brain with biases that aren't reality.

    When the student is ready the teacher will appear. Trump has become the teacher of Alt Facts. Teacher of how to treat women, workers, bussiness partners, and how to get elected. A holocaust scholar " Frank Navarro, who teaches at Mountain View High School in California’s Silicon Valley, said he cited some of Trump’s controversial and racially charged statements, such as calling Mexican immigrants “rapists” and criminals and making comments about the Mexican heritage of a judge presiding over a lawsuit against Trump University, to make the case that there are some parallels with Hitler’s persecution of Jews and the Nazi leader’s rise to power.Both had promised to make their countries “great again,” Navarro said.He also cited Trump’s previous statements about weakening libels laws to draw comparisons with how the Nazis established control and influence over the independent press.“It’s an effective way of embedding the lessons that I’m teaching regarding the place of government and the lives of people,” Navarro, who teaches special education, civics and world studies, told The Washington Post. “It’s important to relate history to your lives because, in the end, that’s what it’s going to be about.”Navarro was placed on paid leave on Thursday after a parent sent an email to school officials complaining about his teaching methods.[‘I’ve never seen anything like that': Confederate flags at California Veterans Day parade]Principal Dave Grissom wrote in a letter to parents on Friday that he has an obligation to maintain an “emotionally safe environment” for students while protecting teachers and staff against unsubstantiated allegations, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.“Regardless of their political affiliation, many of our students show signs of emotional stress,” Grissom said in the letter, the Chronicle reported.District Superintendent Jeff Harding told the San Jose Mercury News that Navarro could return as early as Monday.“We are interested in getting Frank back in the classroom .?.?. We’re just trying to maintain our due diligence,” Harding told the Mercury News. “We have a heightened emotional environment right now with the election. It’s always a challenge to maintain a line in a classroom.”Navarro, a Mexican American whose father moved to the United States from Guadalajara, has been teaching at Mountain View High School for 40 years. He taught European history and classes focusing on the Holocaust. He became a Mandel fellow for the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in 1997 and studied at the International Center for the Study of Anti-Semitism in Jerusalem, according to the Mercury News.When confronted about his teaching methods, Navarro said he told the principal that everything he said in class was based on facts.[A Muslim teacher receives an anonymous note about her headscarf: ‘Hang yourself with it’]He said that going by how the complaint was described to him, the parent said Navarro told his students that Trump is Hitler.“I never said that. That would be historical sloppy thinking,” Navarro said. “What I’ve been teaching is there are remarkable parallels between Hitler and Donald Trump.”Shortly after he was placed on paid leave, a supporter started an online petition urging school officials to reverse their decision and to “publicly apologize for attempting to intimidate a respected educator.”The petition had garnered 10,807 signatures as of Sunday afternoon.Trump’s candidacy has energized white supremacy groups and the alt-right movement, which rejects establishment conservatism and spreads its far-right ideology online.Anti-Semitic posts also surged on social media during the presidential campaign. According to an October report by the Anti-Defamation League, at least 800 Jewish journalists received anti-Semitic tweets, many from Trump supporters.A rash of pro-Trump vandalism and Nazi graffiti have been reported in the past few days since the real estate mogul won the election in a stunning upset against Hillary Clinton.In Philadelphia, for instance, a pair of swastikas were spray-painted on storefront windows, according to an NBC affiliate.

And then to see the subsequent hail of comments against public education, comments that claim educators themselves leave out facts, when you yourself have not included any that relate to your conclusion, that professors are attacking freedom of speech. To see this copy of the popular culture of the Third Reich play out right here and now, at the mere stroke of your pen, and with the image of a holocaust survivor, a presumed victim of attacks against a whole other category of people, Jews, right in front of everyone's noses.

    Winston Churchill: "The fascists of the future will call themselves anti-fascists"   Funny how the radical hard left Democrats act so much like Nazi Brownshirts of the 1920s and 30s for a reason. The coincidence is not out of context- they are both radical political hate organizations, seeking to over throw Republicanism, they both use racial division to tear apart and destroy the civil society- ie; divide and conquer, both are anti-Semitic, they both hate Free Speech / shut down free speech by any means necessary, and both use propaganda and violence to achieve their ends, then turn around and blame others (political opposition) for their own hate, destruction, and violence.

    Schools are a major problem in the US.  They no longer teach history, they teach propaganda.  If anyone is like Hitler in this country, it is the liberals who have not been taught to think critically and brainwashed into thinking our country can survive and all we need is love.  Love is NOT going to keep us safe.  Using common sense vetting and being vigilant is what will help keep us safe.  If they would truly study history with an open and objective mind, they would see that the democratic presidents we have had in this century, have not helped our country.  They have made it worse and caused racial problems and bigotry and war.  Carter is responsible for our problems in the Middle East.  Clinton made it worse and Obama continued to make us an object of the radicals.  Trump is not punishing Muslims or anyone else.  He is protecting our country and people.  When our country was considered great, was when we had common sense.  People were vetted.  It was the Republicans who freed the slaves, gave women the right to vote.....  Ignorance is not bliss.  Study history and quit taking our great country for granted.

    As a former teacher who always included a unit on Propoganda Techniques in my high school classes, I feel the take away message is this: parents are the ultimate teachers of their children. Never leave your child's education completely up to their classroom teachers. Be involved in what they are learning. With them explore sources of information. Let them see facts and realize that facts are interrupted subjectively. Any argument can be made from any point of view using the same facts. Our job is to teach them how to find information, recognize the techniques used to persuade opinion, and come to their own assessment based on their values.

    It's quite interesting honestly, I keep reading comments about how if I'm not FOR Trump I'm some sort of nasty, lying, paranoid SO on and so on! The honest to God truth is I JUST CANNOT STAND THE MAN AND/OR WHAT HE STANDS FOR!!! I don't trust him worth a dime!! J NO! I'm not for Hilary either! 

          Is he a NAZI?? Let me just say, IMHO, he probably is NOT a real NAZI in the true sense of the word, but I do believe he ascribes to some tennants of the NAZI PARTY. The main issues that I personally have with him are in regards to a lot of his Racial Issues. There's NO ONE who'll EVER convince me that he's NOT RACIST! HE IS! Just bc he's said on a rare occasion "Im THE least racist person you'll ever meet!" Doesn't mean it's true! Haha! Hell, I can look you in the eye and say ANYTHING! That doesn't mean it's true! For some reason or another, Donald seems to think that's enough! Actually, it is! For plenty of his followers that IS all it takes! We will ACTUALLY SEE HIM DO SOMETHING...he'll then deny it and call it "Fake News"! WTF is that? And yet...it's allowed! NO! WHAT IT IS IS INSANITY! It is blatant insanity! 

    If the people of America continue to allow Donald to do stupid stuff and NOT CALL HIM OUT ON IT...THE PAY BACK IS GOING TO BE TOO DEAR! He will continue to pull bigger and BIGGER shit whilst there WILL BE NO RECOURSE! It's like trying to raise a child! We had better start the DISCIPLINE RIGHT NOW! Mark my words, there'll be NO HOLDING HIM BACK AT A LATER TIME!

      A question Jay--by the time a person is in college, they are typically a legal adult. Not a kid. So any opinion they arrive at, no matter the source of influence, should be treated as their own. An actual child might not have access to outside opinion, though. Are you insinuating that any adult with a different opinion to yours is brainwashed, but that those with your opinion are not? What makes a professor 'stupid' and 'pathetic?'

      His election that November came as a surprise. The conservative intellectuals had made telling arguments against his racism and conspiracy thinking. Rival nationalists had mocked his affection for a foreign tyrant. Businessmen had explained that economic isolation could only harm an export economy. All to no avail. His followers had faith, of course. They had roared at his rallies and echoed his slogans. They had come out to vote, in higher numbers than expected, especially working-class men and women. Even so, the results of the election were paradoxical. The left received 1 million more votes than his party. But due to the vagaries of the electoral system he was called upon to form a government. His followers exulted, but the various right-wing elites preserved their calm. Although they had failed to keep him from power, they were sure that they could control him. He was good at convincing his followers that he was a revolutionary and convincing others that he was harmless. His administration was at first a coalition of the old right and his new right. The members of the major left-wing party, historically larger than his, had a sense that something was afoot. But the left was divided upon itself and unsure about its leadership; its own conflicts could, from moment to moment, seem more pressing than the affairs of the country as a whole. He did not invent the highway, as his propaganda claimed, but he did support public works. This sort of thing helped to confuse the left and the workers. Among much of the ordinary citizenry there was a certain faith that the political elite had matters under control. Among the elite there was a certain faith that state institutions would somehow protect themselves, that the rule of law and administrative habit would somehow maintain themselves. It was a minority that exulted in his power and a smaller minority that broke the windows and painted the symbols. Somehow, amid the misplaced hopes, his followers set the tone. As the mood changed, much of the citizenry began to think ahead about what he would want and make adjustments in advance. This made his task infinitely simple. Writers reflected upon how he was changing the language. He defined the world as a source of endless threat and other countries as cradles of countless enemies. Global conspiracies were supposedly directed at his country and its uniquely righteous people. His left-wing opponents and the national minorities, he insisted, were not individuals but expressions of implacable international enmity to the righteous demands of his own people. He said that he spoke for his people, that he was their voice. He had no concern for factuality; what he said about others was meant to generate a certain fiction. In some measure, he was working within the philosophical conventions of his time. Important thinkers of the era had declared that the idea of facts understood by individuals was humbug, opening the way for a sense of identity to be confused with the apprehension of truth. But he was also aware that mass media created the possibility to project big lies with such force that they drowned out the small truths.  He had a certain undeniable charisma, and he was the first major politician of a new media age. The terrorist attack came as a surprise. It was unclear whether he planned this himself, but it hardly mattered. He blamed the left, banned its parties, and had its leaders put in camps. A state of emergency was declared and never lifted. A one-party state emerged. The division of powers vanished. The parliament became a rubber stamp. The bureaucracy proved loyal to him. Bright and ambitious men with law degrees were found. For many lawyers and judges, professional ethics were somehow submerged in an understanding of the greater good of the nation, state, or race. Intelligent people found ways to place their own intellectual and moral evolution within this or that philosophical or legal tradition. The legal stigmatization of a chosen minority had the political consequence of binding everyone else closer to the state. The moment citizens did not oppose this measure, they were in effect supporting it. The moment they took advantage of it (by enrolling their children in schools that suddenly had empty places, for example), they were co-opted by it. He was good at convincing followers he was a revolutionary and others that he was harmless. Many of those lawyers wore uniforms of a certain special kind. They were elite members of a certain institution, his bodyguard. He had called upon them to throw out dissenters at his rallies and to beat up opponents. An odd thing had happened when he had come to power. Suddenly people who had always presented themselves as being in opposition to the state were comfortable bearing arms for their personal leader. The process was of course an unruly one; some of these people had to be purged. He claimed, falsely, that a coup d'état had been staged against him and had one part of his bodyguard murder the leaders of another (and some of the old right-wing leaders in the bargain). Now his bodyguard started to seem like a means of social advance. Trained in racism and conspiratorial thinking, its men penetrated the organs of state, especially the police. If anyone had a chance to resist at this point, it was the commanders of the military and the directors of intelligence. A few of them were inclined to do so, but they overestimated themselves, failed to seek allies and counsel, and waited too long. Once the war started, it was too late. The war came as a surprise. Although he had spoken endlessly about the need for struggle, it had not been so easy to find the pretext or the partner. In the beginning he had to concentrate on breaking treaties and pressuring neighbors. But then another strongman was happy to offer him an alliance. This brought what seemed like an easy beginning to conquest, and during combat political opposition became all but unthinkable. The bodyguard and the corporations negotiated exploitative public-private partnerships in conquered lands, known as “ghettos” or “camps.” The army was followed into the field by the paramilitary, which had its own tasks, such as mass murder. In the setting of war, not just the paramilitary but the police, the army, and even civilians carried out mass killings on a stupendous scale. These crimes bound them all to him and to his mission and guaranteed that they would fight to the end. Having done great evil, they found it easy to imagine that the world was against them. His war would be lost. Only his crimes would be immortal. Before he killed himself he blamed his own country for his failures. And a nation that had once seemed destined to shape a century fell into the shade. We are headed into another season of darkness......................     Z<{?f?

    When I grew up in South Omaha we had DP's. Displaced Persons from Europe after World War II. 

    On my block people from Lithuania, Poland, Czech, Bohemian, Irish, Yugoslavia.

    I can tell you all the children learned English and did very well in school. And their parents spoke English also. They were so very grateful to be in the U.S. learning English was nothing compared to where they came from the war and persecution. I learned so much from my neighbors because I could understand what they had to tell me.

    Oh and also DP's from Croatia. My brother-in-law was Croatian.

      Not everyone looks like a dried up prune at 72 years old. When my mom died at 92, she could easily have passed for 70. Older people always were taught, DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER.


      And Liberals would not be printing facts to indicate that Germany was bad. They would be spouting ways that Trump was like Nazi Germany

    I am APPALLED at the number of people in this forum who are discussing DAPL with absolutely NO knowledge of it and what they are doing. For example... somebody brought up the garbage left behind. They only had 2 days to clear out of there! They didn't have time to clean up! Somebody else says it was all about greed. No it wasn't! It is about the sacred burial grounds that have been dug up. It is about the water that could be polluted. Somebody else said that the only time pipelines leak oil is if someone digs into one. Right. sure. Yup. And the construction of them is perfect. And the metal and plastic will last forever. And the ground they are sitting on will never shift, sink or raise. And there will never be an earthquake in the area. So yeah. Whatever to THAT comment! Much of the land IS on reserve land! Much of the land was taken from the natives by the Army Corps of Engineers! The ignorance of the truth in this forum APALLS me! We need to educate our youth in FACTS. Not the stuff that makes Americans look good! Columbus was not a good person, the gov't killed Natives because they wanted the land, the pilgrims squatted on land that belonged to the natives... There is MUCH in history that you DON'T know because you were taught the "feel good" stuff about America!

    " “America needs to grow up. The young people who are rioting and destroying property, who have no respect for elders and freedom of speech, I was so proud to become a citizen of this country.”   While I respect this woman's opinion, she is wrong there.  99% of the protests are peaceful and not even cloes to being a riot.  The honestly less than 1% of protests that become riots are barely riots at all, there has been very little actual property damage.   Most of what she was saying is spot on, but she is being too dismissive of Trump and the current Republicans.  They are in fact trying to end freedom of speech.  Additionally, if Germans rioted to stop the Nazi Socialist party, Hitler would have never rose to power.  If Britain had marched in with an army to stop HItler's party, Hitler would have never rose to power.  If someone tried TO DO SOMETHING, WW2 could have been prevented.  It's the same deal with the Republicans and Trump today.  Republicans are serving the corporations, not the people.   When it comes to "riots" the media didn't care or criticize much when sports fans rioted in cities and destroyed tons of property.  This happened 5 times and 3 of those times the fans sports teams' WON.  00

      "The young people who are rioting  and destroying property, who have no respect for elders and freedom of  speech, I was so proud to become a citizen of this country.”?

    That's  some pretty trivial little thing by some anarchists (if that's even what they were) she's focused on when millions marched  without incident on Washington. So trivial, that I'm betting this piece  has been highly edited. It literally makes no sense from a survivor.  As a Jew with a deep education on the Holocaust, I'm declaring shenanigans.

    Had you any education on the Holocaust by survivors, you wouldn't post such obvious propaganda.

    The  next example: she points to how Hitler reeducated children. That is NOT  how Hitler began. That didn't happen until later. And had you known the  history, you'd have known that right away.

    This  poor woman will certainly change her tune over time, if she doesn't see the exact same dynamic of the rise of an authoritarian already.. The lessons I know, which are MY legacy.  My childhood made me privy, weekly, to personal histories of survivors. Hundreds. I have many friends who are the children of survivors. I know survivors. It's very easy to find stories which state otherwise.

    Frankly, what's most disappointing is listening to people who claim to have some education about the time, who in fact don't understand what  critical thinking and a deep education on something where so much has been written and so many testifiers still exist and their children-- is sad.

    Here, from a biographer of Hitler who refused to speak of the same dynamic until now after the election.

His establishment of concentration camps to inter Jews and other groups he believed to be a threat to Aryan supremacy resulted in the death of more than 6 million people in the Holocaust. His attack on Poland in 1939 started World War II, and by 1941 Germany occupied much of Europe and North Africa. Htiler killed himself April 30, 1945

I just wanted to show everyone that a good place to start in research is direct sources of information. I managed to find the Affidavit of the Standing Rock Sioux Indian Tribe against the Army Corps of Engineers. I also found the opposition form from DAPL against the injunction. Like I said, I didn't read these in entire yet. I don't have an opinion yet, however 5 minutes of "Google Searching" can turn up some pretty good key pieces of information that completely bypass CNN or FoxNews. Here they are. Enjoy. I hope these reads cause an educational debate that go beyond social media memes.

    Accusations of Hitler:  The DNC Left-Wing Progressives & Globalists – Look in the Mirror!      

    Trump is just the Opposite of Hitler -- Trump is a strong willed and extremely competent executive who has demonstrated generosity and the ability to efficiently build teams to improve and accomplish objectives.   His straight-forward and truthful approach often flies in the face of the illogical 'Politically Correct' method of suppressing the truth which Trump counters simply with In-Your-Face Facts!  The Intolerance exhibited by the Democratic Party which is highly influenced and funded by George Soros appears very similar to Hitler and the Nazi Party -- In fact, George Soros is an actual former Nazi-Collaborator that assisted the Nazi in identifying, looting and sending many prominate Jewish families to their deaths in concentration camps & he remains unapologetic even today -- It was my duty (despite his own Jewish parents being arrested).  An interesting background on the Nazi (the Progressive & Socialist political party of its time) and Hitler's rise to power is presented below to complement this Woman Born in Nazi Germany's  excellent & truthful comments.     

    Possibly some different intervention might have succeeded in preventing Hitler and the Nazi Party rise to power since they were just a small and fringe faction initially.   However, with the extreme loss in German National Pride, their Economy in shambles, dramatic inflation and moral decay ... Hitler was able to appeal to their pride and provide them with Jewish, gypsy and other scapegoats as well as fiery oratory that allowed them to grow and eliminate their constitution and republic. The following narrative outlines the approach used by most Progressives, Globalists & Socialists -- Maybe you will notice something similar has occurred today under Obama: A good friend and fellow Tennis Player pointed me to this outstanding book on the ‘Golden Age of Tennis’  in Europe which also contains an incredible background story on the life and times of that period from which we can all learn many lessons! It is an all too Sad & True Story! ?The people were hopeful and wanted change, but no one deeply questioned what that change would be.   A past Progressive (Socialist) Party campaigned on: “Hope and Change!”.

    Soon the Progressives were elected and quickly organized government groups to control and intimidate their opposition – And the people remained silent and generally accepting. ?Then the Progressives began to “Use the Power of his Pen” to get around the Republic’s Constitution – The people simply said, “He is just trying to get things done that the Congress won’t let him do”. Next the people lost their Constitution since he and the progressives had grown so powerful; And then they lost their Republic. ?Due to the consolidation of power in one Man and the intimidation & pressure they were all under – They thought that it would satisfy him and his progressives – If they gave him all of the power as their country’s sole ruler.  The next week Hitler and the Nazi began their Holocaust … and “You know the Rest of the Story”. The book:  A Terrible Splendor, By Marshall Jon Fisher, Three Rivers Press, New York, US $15.00.  Pages 58-60, Are Eerily Familiar to today under Obama’s Hitler-like rule with his power of the Executive Action Pen in the USA compared to Hitler’s Germany and the world events as they led up to one of our darkest periods in the 30’s & 40’s.  Hitler’s rise and unbridled obsessions are cleverly woven into this book as a background story to the ‘Golden Age of Tennis’ in Europe. The moral of this story today … Beware of those that campaign on “Hope & Change”, that are Narcissistic, Ignore the wishes of the people to push their own ideology,  and then seek to consolidate power and threaten our constitution as Obama has and certainly would have been worse under the incompetent and criminally dishonest Hillary!   The outcomes may not be the same, but the outcomes are unlikely to be good for our citizens and the freedoms we enjoy!  

    An Old Adage:  “Be Careful What You Wish For!” – And its Corollary:  “Be Careful Who You Vote For!”.   Fortunately, the Citizens of America have finally awaken and elected a strong and competent leader in Donald Trump with the fortitude to overcome ‘Politics as Usual & Elitist Pay for Play’ by clearly setting the bar very high and laser-focused on achieving the ‘Will of the People, not the will of the Politicians & Elites’! President Donald J. Trump is very clear and transparent that he intends to ‘Make America Great Again’ expeditiously and efficiently;  Plus, he cannot be bought which is an approach to the challenges our government is now facing which is certainly overdue with its huge debt,  mess and disrespect for law and order even at the highest levels of our Justice  department.      

    Those that accuse Trump of being Hitler-like need to better understand the difference between competent leadership that Trump exhibits and the dark & sinister behavior of Globalists, Progressives, Marxists and Tyrants!    Remember Saul Alinsky with his sinister & Marxist ‘Rules for Radicals’ , the community-organizing mentor idolized by Hillary and Obama , who was in fact a Chicago Gangster working and participating in Al Capone’s criminal organization.  The criminal organizational methods he learned – Saul Alinsky advocated in his book that inspired both Hillary & Obama – No wonder our government has become so corrupt and ineffective.    

    Many people do not realize that George Soros who is a principle puppeteer behind the leadership of the Democratic Party, Obama & Hillary was a Nazi-quisling that aided the Nazis in selecting, looting & profiteering from the property of prominent Jews who they sent to concentration camps and near-certain death.   Today George Soros, a billionaire,  is still unpunished and arrogantly funding corrupt, unwarranted and often illegal actions such as ‘Black Lives Matter’, funding the DNC, promoting hatred for Cops and Anarchy in the USA,  as well as in other countries.      

    Just give President Trump a chance and he will certainly “Make America Great Again”. At just $1.00/year salary and his investment of over $100-Million of his own funds, he clearly demonstrates that he is not here to profit from the office or sell-out America with ‘Pay-for-Play’ and Hillary, Bill, Obama and many other politicians on both sides of the aisle have done for decades.  Most Americans have longed for the elimination of the political gridlock in Washington D.C. – Now Trump has promised to do just that by beginning to “Drain the Swamp”.   He is already changing the “rules” in D.C. that will allow him to do that – Just support Trump and help him, Help You!

    Nazis were socialist... Nazi MEANS National Socialist!!!! 

    understand........... 

    CLASSIC LIBERAL --VS-- PROGRESSIVE LIBERAL  

    Today's Left-Wing progressives and neo-cons are unwitting fascist tools… A classic liberal or libertarian (like our Founding Fathers or the honorable MLK) believed in equality, freedom of speech, limited government, a free market, liberty and sound Austrian economics. Progressives today believe in socialism, powerful government, censorship, massive debt via Keynesian economics and bureaucracies full of unelected leaders like the EU, UN, IMF, WTO, etc...  Socialism almost always leads to either fascism or communism. When Google visits Obama at the White House over 450 times, one must remember that Fascism is the melding of socialism with corporations (known as Corporatism). The Godfather of fascism (Benito Mussolini) specifically spoke of this combination! And Hitler perfected it…  In truth, the [email protected] were also socialist... [email protected] means "National Socialist"!!! Officially, they were the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (NSDAP); National Socialist German Workers Party.  How ironic that the socialist EU (like the UN, Fed Reserve, IMF, FEC, FCC, etc...) has no democratically elected leaders.... The EU is nothing more than a banker conceived fascist police state... And progressives love the totalitarian bureaucracies like the EU, UN, and our looming One World government (NWO)… Joseph Goebbels would be so proud of today's progressive liberal media and culture that dominates the Western World!!!  Understand… Our current financial issues and wealth inequality isn’t caused by a failure of free market capitalism, it’s caused by catastrophic Leftist Keynesian central bank policies that have instituted fractional banking with massive debt, nation building and war for fossil fuels, quantitative easing and job killing free trade.  But by blaming capitalism, leftists (socialist) who warn about wealth inequality are playing right into the elite’s hands – because their solution is going to be more power in the hands of the state and central banks, the very same people and policies which caused the problem in the first place.

    So just leaving this here, I have a BS in Construction Management and have worked in the pipeline industry And other various commercial areas.  My question is has anyone looked at the safety of oil through pipeline vs rail and other means? Just a thought on why they don't want this pipeline to go through since there is electronic valves on each side of the river which are controlled via control centers. So if there ever was a leak it would automatically shut off with lack/excessive pressure(leaks and so forth) along with the pipe being double walled so the ground beneath won't wear on the actual pipe transporting the oil And containing the oil if a leak were to spring up. 

    now my experience may be short but designing a pipeline takes many people and time to work through it. I can honestly tell you it takes at least 8 pages of paperwork just to do a weld on a "dry" pipe (One  no traces of product).  The land owners and everyone else that the pipe traverses through must be confirmed And the said company must obtain a right of way from the owner (which they are compensated for I believe).  These pipelines don't just get thrown in the ground, especially without someone's permission months if not a year ahead of actual construction. 

    Now from my memory, I can recall over 3 rail car derailments in the ND and MN area alone Along with Various truck accidents on the road. If everyone is concerned with keeping the environment safe then compare these two stats before saying transporting oil or any product for that matter through pipe is a bad idea as opposed to rail or other means. 

    I'm not biased either way since there is arguments for both sides but the pipeline itself would benefit  The environmental by making it safer to transport the oil. 

    Also the protesters in my home state can leave now since you all made a huge mess and didn't have the decency to clean it up. thanks for leaving a mess I have to clean up and thanks for costing our farm tens of thousands of dollars. Those cattle were not yours to take and the pastures arent yours to litter on.

    Several comments on here refer to DAPL and I live right here in morton county and have seen first hand the issues! First off the protest started with just a few peaceful tribe members back last April on private property on SR which was the sacred stone camp but unfortunately the chairman and some Hollywood people got others to come up to protest, many with their own agendas!  The main large camp off of SR was set up on Corp land and they did not have a permit to do so but we're given one until Dec 5th! The first problems from protesters was over labor day weekend when they charged through a fence on private property with sticks and rocks and pipes and even flag poles as weapons and went after DAPL workers and security and attacked dogs and people! No protester was bitten or injured by a dog as they claimed but 3 dogs and 2 workers were medically treated and the worst was the dog that had blood coming from its nose and mouth, his own blood because he had a severe concussion due to the protesters attacking. From there it snowballed and big protest came in to show how to video to get the best angle to show protesters doing nothing wrong (very much a lie) and to show how to make molotov cocktails and IED'S and how to get things going badly and then claim they did nothing to start the clashes!  They claimed all media except for the very few that were completely on their side were lying and not telling any truths and that those people reporting should be fired! ( sounds familiar cuz trump and his minions believe any journalist who doesn't agree with him should be fired)! The vets that came up here were NOT all natives who were in the service in fact the majority were not! There were 65% of SR members that from the beginning did not want this protest! The false info that this pipeline would be close to their water intake was false because they had started a new water intake and treatment plant in 2009 in Mobridge SD 70 miles south of the pipeline and everyone on SR would be on the new system by the end of this month and the old intake sealed up!  They received over 30 million dollars in federal grants for the new system!  Had nothing to do with DAPL since that did not come into play until after the new water system was started. The pipeline was routed where it is because the Corp chose that as the best option there were no voting on where by people in bismarck ever! Since the huge flood a few years ago the changes to the river made certain areas unusable for this pipeline and they are actually putting it in within feet of a natural gas pipeline that was put in 34 yrs ago back in 1982! 

    This is not on reservation land at all and ND was NEVER treaty land! All of SD and most of NE was treaty land until the government decided to take back the Black Hills and then an executive order moved the boundary of the reservation to the south bank of the Cannonball River, the pipeline is north of that by at least a couple of miles! SR own site states that under their history at standingrock.org! The claim that the cell service was being blocked or slowed or that the county was deleting things on people's phones and computers/tablets is a joke considering that area has had lousy cell service forever (iI drive down 1806 a lot since my husband family farm is down there as well as many friends) and then you want hundreds or a couple thousand people to live stream or be online all at the same time that is not going to happen!  On top of that people are getting hacked all the time anymore and the protesters just made it easy with all their little feeds and twitter and FB accounts! LOL!  Just a little common sense! The camp had people going around to approve what people were posting and if it didn't fit the narrative it wasn't allowed, they were also "vetting" the media and if they were not 100% for them they didn't get a press pass! Which is funny since they had no right to tell the press they couldn't be on federal land! The MCSD and NG were doing their jobs and if they were so terrible there would and could have been thousands of arrests but they were trying to keep it from escalating more! The trash that has been left is ridiculous from shelters and sleeping bags to vehicles, food waste, human waste and even brand new winter clothing with tags still on them for children and adults just piled with the garbage! There were protesters from several organizations like BLM and Greenpeace and the one the vets were gathered through (wwho raised over 1.51.5 million dollars but the vets still haven't been paid their expenses! The largest longterm problem is the distrust between communities now that will need time to heal if they can because the amount of hate spread by out of state protesters most who were NOT natives! The things going on here that are not reported are awful but when you have hundreds or thousands of protesters repeating rhetoric and propaganda online continually because they don't have to answer to anyone like the sheriff's dept does. The sheriff's dept could not just put their evidence against protesters online before processing and sometimes the end of a case because they were following the laws! I am tired of the crap going on because of these protesters and their hate speech who have come in and caused complete chaos and left! The pipeline was never going to go on the reservation and the chairman was probably angry about that since public DAPL meetings started in 2014 was signing a lease if 200,000 acres of SR to an oil exploration company for fracking!  Be awesome for him if the pipeline went through the reservation so the oil being fracked could be transported out by the pipeline wouldn't it! So many more things I could point out but not enough timetime!

    This "article" is a perfect example of ridiculous "reporting."

    The veracity and validity of this woman's statements are highly questionable, if not downright offensive. As a dean who oversees 7 academic programs at a large community college, including a History program with dedicated and talented historians who teach more than 5000 students a year in this subject alone, her statement that "we are teaching garbage in the schools and in the college."  and that  "we don't teach history anymore" is not only silly and uninformed, but offensive.  But the statement she makes about my colleagues I find the most disturbing: "What reminds me more of Hitler than anything else isn't Trump, it's the destruction of freedom of speech on the college campuses — the agendas fueled by the professors."  This is absolutely ludicrous. Frankly, I am not certain why she was given a platform to make these statements in this article. How is she an "expert" on the educational system in America? What are her credentials? I empathize with the struggles she faced, but let's address her credibility to speak on this particular subject. Please. The belief that there is some "left-wing liberal brainwashing agenda" in our institutions is the worst kind of attack on public education and incredibly misinformed. And this anti-intellectual attack will do more harm to our country and our children than just about anything else the right could choose to do to undermine the success of America.

    So I'm posting something a German friend said to me as her input regarding this article.I did not like what I read on this article because Ithis woman seems to be in a different mentality/ state. I had been speaking to a German friend who has read psychological books of her people's generation. Here is what she had to say regarding this article: 

    Couple of things. Her generation is traumatized and was taught to accept whatever happens happens without fighting it. That was the culture for the hitler regime. She thereby is classified as a victim of NS propaganda. While she may claim not to be rep or dom she is exhibiting the direct consequences of that time because she was taught not to rebel or question - thats how the jews ended up dead. Not bc the few who killed them but bc the masses kept quiet.

    2. Freedom of speech is what defines this country and has never defined the core of Germany. The fact she is uncomfortable with riots and protests is part #1 and part bc freedom of speech is not a core value she internalized. Simply being patriotic and wishing for peace doesnt work. Its a constitutional right and it wasnt in Germany 

    3. Trump is a fascist whether she likes it or not. Like hitler can be paralleled on many levels. Not from a strategy and ideology point as much bc these are all copycat extremists compared to the NS but because they rule with fear and intimidation. Hitler did the same. They rule by setting people apart. Hitler set jews and catholics and gays and handicapped apart. The same concept.

    4. The recent increase in young people in colleges having outbursts of hate is not new its just normalized through this administration bc he filled it with alt rights. Young minds in their ignorant youth can now see support for their thinking indirectly or directly. Republicans have exploited that in schools by having altrights speak. The sad thing is that schools allow this hate speech in their ground now as opposed to this being an after school affiliation.

    In all this lady needs to grow up and stop being scared, stop hiding and stop wishing for security when there isn't any

    The DAPL has been a very big problem. I Live in Dickinson ND, yet I am from California. My husband was born in ND, so this is why we are here. 

    When this DAPL first started I was on the Tribes side. We all want clean water., right? I mean with all the oil drilling going on, oil spills accidents happening, well I agreed with the tribes. The protests were non violent until many outsiders from other states came to "support the tribes" , but truly were here to riot instead of protest. It had really got out of control. It suddenly turned into ignorance instead of a way to keep the water from contamination. If you saw the trash that is being removed, well it is the proof that they didn't really care about the water nor the land. Such filth! they should be ashamed, but they are not.

    She sounds a little confused. She said a couple of times that professors shouldn't be encouraging students to suppress free speech. I think she might want to check that point out a little bit. It's actually professors and colleges and students who are very active in protesting the censorship and other injustices of this current regime.

    Maggie Cole, you are so right and it's 100% true. KX News up dates us every day Regarding the trash removal. It's like they created their own landfill. I do not see how they could live in such filth. Do to the amount of snow this year, the melting snow will cause this trash to run off into the Missouri River, the same river they called they're drinking water, that they were so worried about being polluted that they polluted theirselves. Just ignorance at its best. 

    I don't know where this Teacher Called Sarah gets her information, but what you explained is 100% true. Guess she is getting her info from the Media (Fake news)

    "The left" is not brain-washing children. Young people are more accepting of minorities, immigrants, and LGBT, because they go to school or work with these people. It's the people who believe in "ethnic cleansing" who are brain-washed.

    And to say "Donald Trump has similarities with Hitler" is an understatement. Attacking the media, delegitimating judges, and blaming ethnic/religious groups for the society's problems is paving the way to Facism. It's not just the left being alarmed about this, and it shouldn't be.

    In order for this woman to have a relevant comment on the comparison between Hitler and Trump she would have had to have been at least five years old when Hitler first became chancellor of Germany after coming in second in the election. The fact is she was five years old when the war ended, so other than having a strong memory of the conditions of war she would not have had an understanding at the time of what had brought those conditions about.

    Yes! Finally! We can know what was it was *really* like in Nazi Germany from this blonde-haired, non-Jewish girl based on her memories as a toddler. Im sure she was shaking in her clogs just like all the Jewish and Gypsy girls her age, although their accounts of that time period are harder to find for some reason. 

    And then, wow, the nice white lady whose mom married an American had no problem assimilating into our culture! What are the chances? I mean it's just that easy, so why can't everyone do it?!

    president Donald Trump Miss trying to make America great again for too long the Liberals thought that they can have their ways that have no consideration for human life. It makes me sad that someone will say something about our president Donald Trump comparing him to Hitler these people have no idea what they're talking about the problem is that they is  that they  no longer educate the young people in school when I went to school we had the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag you don't see that in school no more the kids are completely out of control all they think it's about playing Xbox the parents forgot what they learn if they're ever learned anything now we have a president that wants to do something and put the American people first for so many years we have been helping so many different countries yet no one ever helps America we need to clean up our country before we can help anyone else it is time for America to wake up and stop thinking that we owe everybody a living it is time for America to start doing great things for the American people who sacrificed their lives the men in uniform and women was served this great nation to protect the. I can go on writing and writing here but I know that a lot of people would not agree with me when I went to school I study history something they don't teach in school anymore I learned about the Constitution I'll learn about the the British Empire want to control us yet we Rose above everything now we got people like Madonna threatening to blow the White House Ashley Judd talking about her.. menstrual cycle it's just unbelievable I stand by my president and I know that he would do everything in his power he's not a politician you never said he was but he's a good businessman the politicians has been making too much money out of the blue collar man now we have a man running the country who wants to help the American people feel like once again we can progress we have left too many people coming to our country who want to destroy our way of life there their Pagan beliefs and they want to kill all the Christians they want Muslim laws like we were living in the Middle East so Madonna want you move to Iraq or Yemen and you run your mouth over there and see what happens to you you made all your money in this country and then you want to talk bad about it you got to be ashamed of yourself all these people who for some reason to hate Donald Trump do not understand that Barack Obama was nothing but a scam Obamacare nothing but the worst Medical Healthcare in the history of man yes I'll countries broken but we can be great again it is up to us to make that happen we must stand together as a nation as one people all together and say yes we can we can do this we are Americans I pray everyday that this country can go back to the main roots yes we have history yes the Americans wasn't treated the Native Americans wasn't treated fairly a long time ago yes they live in reservations they have the option to live there now we have a president that wants to free us from all this stuff that's been put into our minds it for such a long time it is time for the American people to embrace a new era where everybody can have equal opportunity under the Barack Obama administration you made a lot of promises that never happened of course he was a regular politician he really didn't care about the American people you only cared about himself Donald Trump does not need this job he is tired of seeing the American people and this beautiful country of ours destroy yourself if I our ancestors or to be alive they're roll over on their graves. So I pray today then we all stand together and give president Trump a chance to do good things for this country I know we can do it Hollywood needs to stay out of politicians and make movies half of these actors overrated same thing with celebrity Sports people overpaid yet the regular American barely making it let's make America great again God bless everyone of you long live the republic

    She may have been born in Nazi Germany - but she was 5 when Hitler died, and didn't see Hitler's rise to power herself. Her opinion is as valid as anyone else, but I wouldn't overstate her authenticity.

    On a related note, I hear a lot of talk about college campuses but literally none of it describes my experience in college a few years ago. It's like they're talking about another country.

    Here's a primer on the scoping, route decisions and public input for DAPL.  The stading rock tribal leader boycotted all of that, then objected.  He had his chance to be heard and blew it.  https://daplpipelinefacts.com/common-misconceptions/

    https://daplpipelinefacts.com/the-legal-process/

    Berksher Hathaway owns the Berlington Northern Railroad, which transports most of the crude from the tribal lands north of standing rock.  They have had derailments in towns and an impressive derailment and explosion in uninhabited areas, which are unlikely events for a properly buried and patrolled pipeline. Every day the pipeline is delayed is another day that Berkshire Hathaway makes millions hauling oil.  

    Trucking companies also make money hauling oil from collection points in the Montana Bakken deposits to Burlington's terminals in ND.  Some of the tribes own those trucks, so there is a conflict of interest that needs to be exposed:  Delaying the DAPL is profitable.

    The concerns about water quality are false.  Tribal water intake was moved 70 miles upstream of the reservation just to assuage that concern.  There are also four other pipelines of similar capacity under the reservoir at a much shallower depth that are not part of the protest.  Knowing that makes a mockery of the protest.  

    The pipeline companies don't invest $3.8 billion without due dilligence.  They do careful reviews of ownership, access and leasing requirements along with government assurances that if a dispute arises it will be settled without losing the investment.  There were multiple routes reviewed and considered.  If you've been to the area it is a lot of badlands with dryland wheat fields on benches.  That is all.  

    The present route is the shortest by 35 miles and has the least water crossings.  Everyone who attended the scoping meetings or commented apparently had an input.  The SR tribes boycotted the meetings, apparently figuring they can win by standing out in a cold field staring down deputies.  It doesn't work that way.

    The real reason for the protest is treaty and property rights.  Treaties created sovereign nations within the USA and must be negotiated with as such.  The pipeline does not cross the Standing Rock Reservation as the present boundaries are drawn, but the reservation boundaries were changed by a court decision, not by negotiation.    So the Sioux have been screwed. Legally.    This lady sums it up fairly well:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZys_lcEP5o

    Last summer, after a summer of no fires and unemployed tribal hotshot crews, protesters flocked to the protest site from MT and ND reservations.  DAPL protesters were well funded.  Who was writing the checks?  

    What chump pays for all the law enforcement and environmental cleanup?  You taxpayers of course!  http://www.kfyrtv.com/content/news/Garbage-from-DAPL-protest-camps-now-being-hauled-to-South-Dakota-413311623.html

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TH6G1ttpS6c

    What did the protest accomplish?  Too soon to tell.

    There is no disrespect intended here but although her story is interesting She was 5 when the war ended so her opinion about Hitler and his motives was based not on experience but second hand information ..which is very misleading as well,  considering the article states , she hiding and cleaning up rubble in the first few sentences

    This woman says nothing relevant to the comparison b etween the trump and the NSDAP. 

    She makes no points , let alone valid points... 

     she knows nothing about NAZI Germany - she was a baby at the end of the war and lived in Postwar Europe. 

    that is not a NAZI Germany passport it is a post WW2 German passport. The Bundesrubublik did not exist until after WW2.

    and she has no clue of how Hitler got started... 

    Hitler did not start anything by controlling the Uni or professors .

    Hitler was elected , Partnered with right wing industrialists, Business leaders and the Church, 

    over the next 9 years he was reelected and restructured the courts to reflect his needs, passed the enabling act, 

    then worked through his list of possible scapegoats starting with the Socialists. - ending with Jews and Zugeuner. 

    Nothing in this article has any basis in reality. 

    a perfect example of Gobbellean propaganda at it's worst. 

    a little research would avoid such an error.

    Maybe they should interview some of the survivors from the concentration camps in Poland/Germany etc. and ask how they view what is happening in America and President Trump's actions against the free media? If the institutes are asking their students to hinder free speech (which sounds odd to me that they would do), then that is a very serious matter. But isn't hindering free speech exactly the thing that Trump's "war on the media" is doing? Most of American media-coverage has some political standpoint (CNN = democrat, Fox = republican) which isn't the most optimal thing, but all media-coverage is the very essence of free speach, and wanting to silence and censor some of them is in practice creating a biased image of the world (i.e. propaganda). Media exist to look into and research all slots of society and government branches, with the goal to keep officials in check, stop corruption and let free speach and democracy rule.

    Amazing that the comments all have to do with the pipeline and not the article. First this lady was born after Hitler came to power; she was not there when he was gradually taking over the country and indoctrinating the citizens to his way of thinking. My mother-in-law lived through the rise of the Nazi party. To say that Trump is not like Hitler based on the memories of a child that was 5 when the war ended is a mistake. Learn from history; listen to the people who lived through the whole thing.
