You need to some serious research to learn the difference between Hitler's SS and German citizens in relation to the concentration camps.
The German citizens were desperate and had experienced tremendous suffering due to the Great Depression. Millions were unemployed, thousands of small businesses had failed and homelessness and starvation were real fears and possibilities.
In growing numbers, the people turned to a decisive man, Adolf Hitler, and his promises of a better future.
In January 1933, Adolf Hitler took the reins of Germany greeted with an outpouring of worshipful adulation unlike anything ever seen before in Germany.
He was hailed ("Heil! Sieg Heil!") by those who believed their deliverance had come.
Within weeks, Hitler became an absolute dictator and set in motion a chain of events resulting in the Second World War and the eventual deaths of nearly 50 million humans because of that war and deliberate extermination.
Anything else you want to know?

A new AP-GfK polls is all around bad news f
When asked which party is better able to handle the immigration issue, Republicans win a plurality of 29% compared to 25% for Demo vacations, the percentage of Americans who see illegal immigration as a "serious probleentral American children will be deported immediately. A mere 18% want the law to stay as is (housed until a deportation hearing).
As far as the blame the mainstream media wants to lay at the feet of the GOP for not passing immigration reform, that propaganda push has failed miserably. Only 44% blame the GOP, while 38% blame Obama and 36% blame Democrats.
If you are wondering why the media have all but stopped reporting on a crisis at our very own doorstep and instead focused on crises overseas, this pollnda.
Despite the wishes of the federal government and a mainstream media that sees its role as making those wishes come true, through original reportiven the facts of the border crisis home for an American public eager to know the truth.

After the elections of March 5, 1933, the Nazis began a systematic takeover of the state governments throughout Germany, ending a centuries-old tradition of local political independence. Armed SA and SS thugs barged into local government offices using the state of emergency decree as a pretext to throw out legitimate office holders and replace them with Nazi Reich commissioners.

Political enemies were arrested by the thousands and put in hastily constructed holding pens. Old army barracks and abandoned factories were used as prisons. Once inside, prisoners were subjected to military style drills and harsh discipline. They were often beaten and sometimes even tortured to death. This was the very beginning of the Nazi concentration camp system.

At this time, these early concentration camps were loosely organized under the control of the SA and the rival SS. Many were little more than barbed-wire stockades know as 'wild' concentration camps, set up by local Gauleiters and SA leaders.

For Adolf Hitler, the goal of a legally established dictatorship was now within reach. On March 15, 1933, a cabinet meeting was held during which Hitler and Göring discussed how to obstruct what was left of the democratic process to get an Enabling Act passed by the Reichstag. This law would hand over the constitutional functions of the Reichstag to Hitler, including the power to make laws, control the budget and approve treaties with foreign governments.

The emergency decree signed by Hindenburg on February 28th, after the Reichstag fire, made it easy for them to interfere with non-Nazi elected representatives of the people by simply arresting them.

March 21, 1933 - With the eyes of Germany and the whole world on him - a respectful stroll by Hitler toward the Garrison Church in Potsdam for ceremonies opening the new Reichstag session. Below: Reassuring to all - Hitler greets President Hindenburg in the manner of the age-old German custom - hand outstretched and head bowed.

As Hitler plotted to bring democracy to an end in Germany, Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels put together a brilliant public relations display at the official opening of the newly elected Reichstag.

On March 21st, in the Garrison Church at Potsdam, the burial place of Frederick the Great, an elaborate ceremony took place designed to ease public concern over Hitler and his gangster-like new regime.

Later that same day, Hindenburg signed two decrees put before him by Hitler. The first offered full pardons to all Nazis currently in prison. The prison doors sprang open and out came an assortment of Nazi thugs and murderers.

The second decree signed by the befuddled old man allowed for the arrest of anyone suspected of maliciously criticizing the government and the Nazi Party.

A third decree signed only by Hitler and Papen allowed for the establishment of special courts to try political offenders. These courts were conducted in the military style of a court-martial without a jury and usually with no counsel for the defense.

On March 23rd, the newly elected Reichstag met in the Kroll Opera House in Berlin to consider passing Hitler's Enabling Act. It was officially called the "Law for Removing the Distress of the People and the Reich." If passed, it would in effect vote democracy out of existence in Germany and establish the legal dictatorship of Adolf Hitler.

Brown-shirted Nazi storm troopers swarmed over the fancy old building in a show of force and as a visible threat. They stood outside, in the hallways and even lined the aisles inside, glaring ominously at anyone who might oppose Hitler's will.

Before the vote, Hitler made a speech in which he pledged to use restraint.

"The government will make use of these powers only insofar as they are essential for carrying out vitally necessary measures...The number of cases in which an internal necessity exists for having recourse to such a law is in itself a limited one," Hitler told the Reichstag.

Meanwhile, Nazi storm troopers chanted outside: "Full powers – or else! We want the bill – or fire and murder!!"

But one man arose amid the overwhelming might. Otto Wells, leader of the Social Democrats stood up and spoke quietly to Hitler.

"We German Social Democrats pledge ourselves solemnly in this historic hour to the principles of humanity and justice, of freedom and socialism. No enabling act can give you power to destroy ideas which are eternal and indestructible."

Hitler was enraged and jumped up to respond.

"You are no longer needed! The star of Germany will rise and yours will sink! Your death knell has sounded!"

The vote was taken – 441 for, and only 84, the Social Democrats, against. The Nazis leapt to their feet clapping, stamping and shouting, then broke into the Nazi anthem, the Hörst Wessel song.

Democracy was ended. They had brought down the German Democratic Republic legally. From this day onward, the Reichstag would be just a sounding board, a cheering section for Hitler's pronouncements.

Nonsense....... this is Nazi propaganda !!!
Hitler set up dictatorship , killed his opponents in Germany...set up concentrations camps the month he took power. He was never elected by the German people in a contested election, defeated for President in 1932
You continue to embarrass yourself
Give it a rest, Patrick. Look up some history websites. You're just taking stabs in the dark at this point.

Heck...even the New York Times...the liberals' bible...said this about Adolph Hitler...

"Sixty-five million Germans yielded to the blandishments and magnetism of this slender man of medium height with little black mustache and shock of dark hair whose fervor and demagogy swept everything before him with outstretched arms as the savior and regenerator of the Fatherland."

http://www.nytimes.com/learning/general/onthi...

And in the same article...

"As late as 1928, in the Reichstag elections of that year, Hitler was able to obtain only twelve seats. But in the elections held in the fall of 1930 he received 6,000,000 votes and captured 107 seats.

"It was one of the greatest upsets in the turbulent history of the struggling German Republic. By this time Hitler had become the veritable idol not only of the active Nazi party members but of the masses who cast their ballots for him."

....Now if you can't believe the New York Times as a devout liberal...who can you believe?

I call and raise....

"... Though the Nazi Party won only twelve seats in the 1928 elections, the onset of the Great Depression with its devastating effects on the middle classes helped Hitler to win over all those strata in German society who felt their economic existence was threatened. In addition to peasants, artisans, craftsmen, traders, small businessmen, ex-officers, students and declasse intellectuals, the Nazis in 1929 began to win over the big industrialists, nationalist conservatives and army circles. With the backing of the press tycoon, Alfred Hugenberg, Hitler received a tremendous nationwide exposure just as the effects of the world economic crisis hit Germany, producing mass unemployment, social dissolution, fear and indignation. With demagogic virtuosity, Hitler played on national resentments, feelings of revolt and the desire for strong leadership using all the most modern techniques of mass persuasion to present himself as Germany's redeemer and messianic saviour.

Hitler and President von Hindenburg (1933)

In the 1930 elections the Nazi vote jumped dramatically from 810,000 to 6,409,000 (18.3 percent of the total vote) and they received 107 seats in the Reichstag. Prompted by Hjalmar Schacht and Fritz Thyssen, the great industrial magnates began to contribute liberally to the coffers of the NSDAP, reassured by Hitler's performance before the Industrial Club in Dusseldorf on 27 January 1932 that they had nothing to fear from the radicals in the Party...."

Not sure why you're so obsessed about this. Everyone knows Hitler was a bad guy. There were German people and even some in the OSS and government who didn't like him - and tried to kill him.

Nothing was ever said to warrant this kind of reaction. Is this just a contest to prove you're always right and I'm always wrong?

If that's what this is, you can go ahead and proclaim yourself the winner. Because we're both saying the exact same thing but from different sources and sources cover a lot of ground.

So what's up with this anyway?

We'll discuss it more tomorrow though if you want to. It gets late really fast on here at night.
