    Opinion
    1918 Germany Has a Warning for America
    Donald Trump’s “Stop the Steal” campaign recalls one of the most disastrous political lies of the 20th century.

    [​IMG]
    By Jochen Bittner

    HAMBURG, Germany — It may well be that Germans have a special inclination to panic at specters from the past, and I admit that this alarmism annoys me at times. Yet watching President Trump’s “Stop the Steal” campaign since Election Day, I can’t help but see a parallel to one of the most dreadful episodes from Germany’s history.

    One hundred years ago, amid the implosions of Imperial Germany, powerful conservatives who led the country into war refused to accept that they had lost. Their denial gave birth to arguably the most potent and disastrous political lie of the 20th century — the Dolchstosslegende, or stab-in-the-back myth.

    Its core claim was that Imperial Germany never lost World War I. Defeat, its proponents said, was declared but not warranted. It was a conspiracy, a con, a capitulation — a grave betrayal that forever stained the nation. That the claim was palpably false didn’t matter. Among a sizable number of Germans, it stirred resentment, humiliation and anger. And the one figure who knew best how to exploit their frustration was Adolf Hitler.

    Don’t get me wrong: This is not about comparing Mr. Trump to Hitler, which would be absurd. But the Dolchstosslegende provides a warning. It’s tempting to dismiss Mr. Trump’s irrational claim that the election was “rigged” as a laughable last convulsion of his reign or a cynical bid to heighten the market value for the TV personality he might once again intend to become, especially as he appears to be giving up on his effort to overturn the election result.


    A starving population joined the strikes and demands for a republic grew. On Nov. 9, 1918, Wilhelm abdicated, and two days later the army leaders signed the armistice. It was too much to bear for many: Military officers, monarchists and right-wingers spread the myth that if it had not been for political sabotage by Social Democrats and Jews back home, the army would never have had to give in.

    The deceit found willing supporters. “Im Felde unbesiegt” — “undefeated on the battlefield” — was the slogan with which returning soldiers were greeted. Newspapers and postcards depicted German soldiers being stabbed in the back by either evil figures carrying the red flag of socialism or grossly caricatured Jews.

    By the time of the Treaty of Versailles the following year, the myth was already well established. The harsh conditions imposed by the Allies, including painful reparation payments, burnished the sense of betrayal. It was especially incomprehensible that Germany, in just a couple of years, had gone from one of the world’s most respected nations to its biggest loser.


    The startling aspect about the Dolchstosslegende is this: It did not grow weaker after 1918 but stronger. In the face of humiliation and unable or unwilling to cope with the truth, many Germans embarked on a disastrous self-delusion: The nation had been betrayed, but its honor and greatness could never be lost. And those without a sense of national duty and righteousness — the left and even the elected government of the new republic — could never be legitimate custodians of the country.

    In this way, the myth was not just the sharp wedge that drove the Weimar Republic apart. It was also at the heart of Nazi propaganda, and instrumental in justifying violence against opponents. The key to Hitler’s success was that, by 1933, a considerable part of the German electorate had put the ideas embodied in the myth — honor, greatness, national pride — above democracy.

    The Germans were so worn down by the lost war, unemployment and international humiliation that they fell prey to the promises of a “Führer” who cracked down hard on anyone perceived as “traitors,” leftists and Jews above all. The stab-in-the-back myth was central to it all. When Hitler became chancellor on Jan. 30, 1933, the Nazi newspaper Völkischer Beobachter wrote that “irrepressible pride goes through the millions” who fought so long to “undo the shame of 9 November 1918.”

    Germany’s first democracy fell. Without a basic consensus built on a shared reality, society split into groups of ardent, uncompromising partisans. And in an atmosphere of mistrust and paranoia, the notion that dissenters were threats to the nation steadily took hold.

    Alarmingly, that seems to be exactly what is happening in the United States today. According to the Pew Research Center, 89 percent of Trump supporters believe that a Joe Biden presidency would do “lasting harm to the U.S.,” while 90 percent of Biden supporters think the reverse. And while the question of which news media to trust has long split America, now even the largely unmoderated Twitter is regarded as partisan. Since the election, millions of Trump supporters have installed the alternative social media app Parler. Filter bubbles are turning into filter networks.

    In such a landscape of social fragmentation, Mr. Trump’s baseless accusations about electoral fraud could do serious harm. A staggering 88 percent of Trump voters believe that the election result is illegitimate, according to a YouGov poll. A myth of betrayal and injustice is well underway.

    It took another war and decades of reappraisal for the Dolchstosslegende to be exposed as a disastrous, fatal fallacy. If it has any worth today, it is in the lessons it can teach other nations. First among them: Beware the beginnings.

    Trump releasing a Tupac "Hit em up" diss track on people who gave up all their self respect for not cheating to give him an election is the first likable thing he's done.

    Ever.

    Now this is a real concern I can get behind. Unlikely Dems will be able to take the legislature in any of these states, meaning a rogue SOS operation actually has some possibility of working. Now, true Trump crazies haven't had success in getting elected statewide in AZ but can't rule it out, especially if, as I'm thinking, Katie Hobbs runs for Governor instead of another term in '22

    Mainstream political pundits and people living in reality: wow the GOP is in trouble given the demographic changes in America.

    GOP 2016: hey let’s conspire with foreign countries to gain power

    GOP 2020: it’d be cool if we can outright steal elections

    The writing is on the wall in this country.

    I brought this up before since the only reason this didn't work was that Dem Govs and SoS were all in charge in swing states except for GA but was shouted . Well that and a bunch of functional idiots attempted this.

    What happens when a smarter group of people try with control make this attempt?

    I know entirely too much about WW2 and how hitler took power and that article is beyond flawed. Hitler failed to take power numerous times. He built the entire Nazi party up to gain power after he got out of jail for the failed coup and he actually lost seats. Their racism and nation pride message only worked after the 1929 stock market crash caused the loans outstanding In Germany from WW1 to be called which triggered a massive depression.

    there were many other issues with the Weimar Republic but hitler was losing ground, not gaining ground before the stock market crash of 1929. Hindenberg was also dying which led to a power vacuum. If the crash doesn’t happen and they appoint a half decent leader after Hindenburg, it’s very likely that the Nazis never get into power.

    if we never asked them to pay for costs of the war after WW1 it also wouldn’t have happened but the Germans as a whole didn’t fall for hitlers nationalism/racism until they couldn’t put food on the table. Even then, it wasn’t a majority and they strong armed a weak leader into taking over.

    there are some very legit hitler/trump comparisons which are very scary but that article sucks IMO.

    I had one guy who kept commenting on every ‘left-adjacent’ post like, “this is LinkedIn, not Facebook.” Even mostly innocuous posts with a positive, feel good story.

    Yet he would like or positively comment on any pro-trunp, Amy comey Barret, etc posts.

    Just complete brain worms.

    That’s not even the most shitty thing he said in that small clip.
    1) He stated that he hates when people inject empathy and humanity in meetings.

    2) Then he went on a rant accusing democrats of criticizing Kayleigh and Conney-Barret for being mothers.
