I Hate Norway

Stacy Abrams is nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize as Georgia investigates her group for voter registration fraud. Who cares? Not Lars Haltbrekken, who is the man that nominated Abrams. Lars Halbrekken is a member of Norway`s Socialist party and nominated Stacy Abrams for her work on voter registration and rights.

A lot of people went nuts when they heard about this earlier this week. But this is not the first time people went nuts regarding the Nobel Peace Prize. The last time people went nuts was when Barrack Obama won the prize. But why? Nobody didn`t understand that. Nor Barrack Obama.

This is very embarrassing for the Nobel Peace Prize Committee, but also for Norway. Giving Obama the prize was a shame and people called the Committee clowns. They lost a lot of credibility and they did not have their annual Peace Prize Concerts since then. They say lack of money is the reason, but we all know why they have a low profile.

Nominating Stacy Abrams is also a shame because we don`t know what happened about the election in Georgia yet. But we can assume that Lars Haltbrekken is satisfied because he is obviously not a Trump supporter.

He is a Norwegian environmentalist and was elected to the Parliament of Norway in 2017 for the Socialist Left Party. In the ’90s Lars tried to prevent natural gas power plants in Norway. A man who grew up in Trondheim.

Ingrid Galadriel Aune Falck is another one from Trondheim. She is a Viking. Well, she was. Right after Qanon (dressed as a Viking from Scandinavia) and his friends stormed Capitol Hill on January 6th, she resigned as a leader of a Viking re-enactment group.

Historically, the Vikings do have a shady reputation, and events in modern times have not made that easier to get past. You know, the Nazis and all that, Ingrid wrote on her blog.

For years, MSM in Norway has talked a lot about the Vikings, and for some people, it is very important to be part of something strong and powerful. A system that can make fear. But Ingrid didn`t want to be part of an organization that has become a Nazi party.

Qanon-shaman (Jake Angeli) with his «horned costume» stormed the US congress, but he also had Viking-tattoos on his body. One of them was the logo of Ingrid`s former re-enactment company, Hands-on History.

Let’s be clear; most Viking re-enactors are kind and respectful, regardless of their level of geekiness. However, every basket has some rotten eggs. And some of these rotten eggs don`t even try to disguise their white supremacist smell, Ingrid wrote on her blog.

The same can be said about the US. Qanon doesn`t represent the Christian community on the right side. He is one of the few extremists.

At the end of Ingrid`s blog, she wrote; I`m letting go of a beast I can`t control. And from now on I`m choosing to laugh instead of getting angry. Sorry guys, I`m out!

Last year, the police in Norway said the biggest threat wasn`t Al-Qaida, but the Nazi`s. A country that is struggling with domestic terrorists.

Philip Manshaus is the last known terrorist who was radicalized in Trondheim. A 21-year-old man who was active on the internet on various forums for anti-immigrant groups. He was armed with multiple weapons and opened fire in a mosque in Norway.

One person was injured before the attacker was overpowered by a 75-year old worshiper. Hours after the attack, the dead body of his stepsister was found in his own house. He murdered his own step-sister (17) who was adopted from China.

Philip Manshaus said in the court that there is a Genocide going on in Norway.

Manshaus was inspired by New Zealand-terrorist Brenton Harrison Tarrant, a 28-year-old man from Australia. He attacked Christchurch in New Zealand on 15 March 2019. He began his attack at the Al Noor Mosque in the suburb of Riccarton and continued at Linwood Islamic Centre. He killed 51 people and injured 40.

Tarrant is a self-avowed white supremacist, and Australia, where the gunman was from, has also seen an increase in xenophobia, racism, and Islamophobia. Tarrant also said that he like Communist China (editor; we all know what they do to Christians and Muslims).

Tarrant was inspired by Fjotolf Hansen (born Anders Behring Breivik), a terrorist who committed the 2011 Norway attacks. On 22 July 2011, he killed eight people by detonating a van bomb amid Regjeringskvartalet in Oslo, then killed 69 participants of a Workers’ Youth League (AUF) summer camp in a mass shooting on the island of Utoya.

Since his imprisonment, Fjotolf Hansen has identified himself as a fascist and a Nazi, who practices Odinism and used counter jihadist rhetoric to support ethnonationalism.

He admitted to the crimes and said the purpose of the attack was to save Norway and Western Europe from a Muslim takeover, and that the Labour Party had to «pay the price» for letting down Norway and the Norwegian people.

After his arrest, he referred to himself as «the greatest monster since Quisling (a Nazi who overtook Norway during World War II).

Fjotolf also alluded to himself as the future regent of Norway, master of life and death, while calling himself «inordinately loving» and «Europe`s most perfect knight since WWII. He was convinced that he was a warrior in a «low-intensity civil war» and had been chosen to save his people.

He described plans to carry out further «executions of categories A, B, and C traitors» by the thousands, the psychiatrists included, and to organize Norwegians in reservations for the purpose of selective breeding.

Genocide in Norway has happened before, and it is possible that it can happen again because history tends to repeat itself. We know the history of Norway`s five national minorities. We know the way of life of jews, Kven, Gypsies, and Romani people (tater).

The minorities have always been treated very badly. Jews were sent to Holocaust and killed during WW II. While Danish Jews were granted ordinary civil rights in 1814, the Constitutional Assembly in Eidsvoll, Norway, that same year went in the opposite direction. Jews were banned in Norway.

The 1800s saw emerging nationalism and a vision of one nation and one people in Norway, and there was little room for being different.

The abuse of power continued in Norway, Now in the form of assimilation.

The Child Protection Act of 1896 allowed the authorities to take children away from all travelers (tater), while the Vagrancy Act of 1900 made the itinerant lifestyle a crime.

Later on, modern genetics came to have a significant influence in Norway and on Norwegian government policy from the 1920s onwards. This hit the Romani people (tater) hard. Alongside groups such as alcoholics, criminals, and so-called “tater” were seen as carrying undesirable genes.

The Sterilisation Act of 1934 allowed for forced sterilization of people with serious mental conditions, people who were mentally deficient, or people whose mental development was severely impaired.

It has been documented that up until 1977 at least 125 Norwegians of traveling ancestry were sterilized, while Romani people (tater) were sterilized without basis in law. Many of them were left with physical and mental scars, and several later committed suicide.

Lobotomy was also carried out on Romani people (tater), resulting in death for some of them.

The Portuguese neurologist Egas Moniz won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1949 for his now-discredited procedure of the lobotomy, which involves serving nerve connections within the brain of a mentally ill person.

Today the lobotomy is considered a barbaric treatment for mental illness, and that`s why relatives of lobotomy patients now have started a campaign to have the prize rescinded.

Mr. DeForest Kelley (as Dr. Leonard «Bones» McCoy) once said; My God, man, drilling holes in his head`s not the answer. The artery must be repaired. Now put away your butcher knives and let me save this patient before it`s too late.

What will tomorrow`s historians say about today`s cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and immunotherapy? It remains to see. People are still suffering and have pain even today. Fortunately not by lobotomy.

In 1897, the government delegated the work to assimilate the Romani people (tater) to a private organization, commonly known as the Norwegian Mission for the Homeless. The mission ran children`s homes, schools, and labor colonies for Romani people with the express aim of eradicating the Romani people/ tater culture.

One important strategy was to remove children from their parents and then raise them as «good Christians» and settled Norwegians in children’s homes. In total at least 1,500 children were separated from their parents, often growing up without knowing about their traveler (tater) background.

Many of these children suffered violence and abuse. More than one hundred families of Romani people/tater descent were sent to Svanviken labor colony in Nordmore to be «weaned off» their traditional way of life and become «good Christians».

The Norwegian Mission for the Homeless continued its activities in Svanviken until 1989, but the Norwegian government is still kidnapping children even today. They take 5 kids from their parents every single day.

The Norwegian government is breaking civil human rights and many of these cases end up in the European Court of Human Rights in Haag. Many of the cases I have heard of is shocking.

The human rights are pretty clear: You have a right to life. Art 3; freedom from torture and inhuman or degrading treatment. Art 4; freedom from slavery and forced labor. Art 5; right to liberty and security. Art 6; right to a fair trial, and Art 7; No punishment without law.

Will Ferrell Hates Norway in a new Super Bowl commercial. Not for any crimes, Nazism, Vikings, or White supremacists, but because they have too much electic vehicles.

Author Hannah Arendt wrote the book «The Origins of Totalitarianism» in which she discussed how it was possible for a democratic state such as Germany to turn into a cold-blooded totalitarian state.

Arendt makes the point that a totalitarian system may become even worse than dictatorships, as the latter implements fear of death when speaking up against the authorities, but totalitarian states do the same, but in a more subtle way.

The aim of totalitarian systems is to control every aspect of a person`s life, his views on the family, genders, his feelings towards the church, religion, and every aspect of life are to be controlled.

In such states, the population is held in fear of repercussions from the police and state authorities, in constant fear of losing their jobs, their reputation, and friends. Fear becomes the tool to keep the population in check. Nobody dares to say much, out of trepidation for what may happen then.

One of Arendt`s main points was that precisely because modern democracies incorporates well-developed institutions and the hierarchical structure, people tend to obey orders without daring to think freely.

They view themselves as part of a system with little or no personal responsibility.

Arendt found that it was not the desire to be brutal to certain ethnic groups such as Jews and Gypsies, that was the root for the «obedience towards the state» that permeated the German society.

It was the indifference, lack of empathy and willingness to obey status quo that permeated the German population.

Since groupthink was vital in this society, no one dared to step out of the group. Those who did quickly ended up in the same concentration camps where intellectuals dissidents joined the Jews and others who were unwanted.

The point is that societies that cultivate just laws prosper.

The military established a junta that suspended all political activity in Chile in 1973

Abraham Lincoln saved America for the first time in 1864. Donald Trump tried to do the same for the second time. What happens today is similar to what happened under Lincoln. In January 1838, Abraham Lincoln said this;

Citizens seeing their property destroyed; their families insulted, and their lives endangered; their persons injured, and seeing nothing in the prospect that forebodes a change for the better. They become tired of, and disgusted with, a government that offers them no protection.»

If you see people in your own country do things like that, you have to react. You must do something. You must punish those who are responsible for the crime you see. If you face fascism right in front of your eyes without doing something, you deserve to live in chaos, and that`s what we can call the U.S for right now.

When Abraham Lincoln stood for re-election in November 1864 he knew that defeat could bring the civil war to a premature end and shatter his dreams of abolishing slavery. Lincoln fixed the problems and saved America.

Now, we know that the middle class is wiped out and they do not recover. This is a sign of a weak government because their rule number one should be the safety of their own people. That is not what we see today.

The United States is at war with its own people. It is so much corruption and people don`t care. We know how they treated their own president. We know what they have done to other presidents. The United States went from cold war to a war on terror, but that cannot continue.

We can all see the tension in the U.S Congress. We can all see how divided the U.S is, but we have seen similar things like this before. In 1973. On 11 September 1973 in the Chilean coup d’etat, it was a military coup in Chile that deposed the Popular Unity government of President Salvador Allende.

After an extended period of social unrest and political tension between the opposition-controlled congress and the socialist President, as well as economic warfare ordered by U.S president Richard Nixon, a group of military officers led by General Augusto Pinochet and Admiral Josè Toribio Merino seized power in a coup, ending civilian rule.

The military established a junta that suspended all political activity in Chile and repressed left-wing movements, especially communist and socialist parties and the Revolutionary Left Movement (MIR).

Augusto Pinochet rose to supreme power within a year of the coup and was formally declared President of Chile in late 1974. The Nixon administration, which had worked to create the conditions for the coup, promptly recognized the junta government and supported it in consolidating power.

Before the coup, Chile had been hailed as a beacon of democracy and political stability for decades, a period in which the rest of South America had been plagued by military juntas and «caudillismo.»

The collapse of Chilean democracy ended a succession of democratic governments in Chile, which had held democratic elections since 1932.

An internationally support plebiscite in 1988 held under the auspices of the military dictatorship was followed by a peaceful transition to an elected civilian government.

Allende contested the 1970 presidential election with Jorge Alessandri Rodriguez of the National Party and Radomiro Tomic of the Christian Democratic Party. Allende received 36,6% of the vote. Alessandri was a very close second with 35,3%, and Tomic third with 28,1%. Allende received the highest number of votes, according to the Chilean constitution and since none of the candidates won by an absolute majority, the National Congress had to decide among the candidates.

The 1925 constitution did not allow a person to be president for two consecutive terms.

The U.S feared the example of a «well-functioning socialist experiment» in the region and exerted diplomatic, economic, and covert pressure upon Chile`s elected socialist government.

At the end of 1971, the Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro made a four-week state visit to Chile, alarming American observers worried about the «Chilean Way to Socialism».

In 1972, economics minister Pedro Vuskovic adopted monetary policies that increased the amount of circulating currency and devaluated the escudo, which increased inflation to 140 percent in 1972 and engendered a black market economy.

The governments of Argentina (1966), Bolivia (1969), Brazil (1964), and Peru (1968) were all overthrown in coups and replaced by military governments. In June 1973 Uruguay joined the coup wave that swept through the region.

The United States of America know how to replace a government. They are experts and have been involved in multiple coup dètat`s around the world.

United States involvement in regime change describes actions taken by the United States government, both overt and covert, to alter, replace, or preserve foreign governments. In the latter half of the 19th century, the U.S government initiated actions for regime change mainly in Latin America and the Southwest Pacific, including the Spanish-American and Philippine-American wars.

At the onset of the 20th century, the United States shaped or installed governments in many countries around the world, including neighbors Panama, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic.

The U.S was also involved in the coup in Egypt a few years ago. In February 2011, Hosni Mubarak resigned after 18 days of mass demonstrations that ended his 29-year rule of Egypt. The 2013 Egyptian coup dètat took place on 3 July 2013.

Egyptian army chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi led a coalition to remove the President of Egypt, Mohamed Morsi, from power and suspended the Egyptian constitution of 2012. The move came after the military`s ultimatum for the government to «resolve its differences» with protesters during widespread national protests.

The military arrested Morsi and Muslim Brotherhood leaders and declared Chief Justice of the Supreme Constitutional Court Adly Mansour as the interim president of Egypt. The announcement was followed by demonstrations and clashes between supporters and opponents of the move throughout Egypt.

In June 2012, Mohamed Morsi won the presidential election with 51,73% of total votes to become the first democratically elected president of Egypt. In June the same year, prior to Morsi being sworn in as President, the Supreme Constitutional Court ruled that the election law was unconstitutional and ordered the elected bodies dissolved.

President Morsi appointed additional members to the advisory council from 35 political parties and invited the elected bodies to discuss the ruling of the court.

During World War II, the United States helped overthrow many Nazi Germany or imperial Japanese puppet regimes. Examples include regimes in the Philippines, Korea, the Eastern portion of China, and much of Europe.

United States forces were also instrumental in ending the rule of Adolf Hitler over Germany and of Benito Mussolini over Italy.

75 years later, the U.S was attacked by Neo-Nazis at the Capitol Hill.

Angela Merkel`s party CDU to lose 50% of their votes while the right-wing to far-right political party in Germany AfD are on the rise

Wow. This is a bombshell. And German Chancellor Angela Merkel is shocket. So are the majority of the German citizens. Germany`s ruling party Christian Democratic Union (CDU) will lose almost half of their votes in case of a new elections in the state of Thuringia.

The right-wing to far-right political party in Germany Alternative for Germany (AfD) are on the rise. A party founded only seven years ago. Autraged critics have compared the Thuringia election with the rise of Adolf Hitler.

In 1930, Adolf Hitler was celebrating. «Our biggest success we had in Thuringia,» he wrote. There we are the most significant party. The parties in Thuringia trying to create a government cannot secure a majority without our co-operation.»

A poll released earlier today, Friday, revealed that CDU is dropping from 21,7 percent to 12 percent.

Ex-Prime Minister of Belgium and pro-EU Guy Verhofstadt protested and sent a message on social media on Friday. He released a photograph of a newly elected Mr Kemmerich shaking hands with Thuringia`s hard-right AfD leader Bjorn Hocke, and juxtaposing it with one of Hitler greeting the then German president Paul von Hindenburg.

The AfD`s initial supporters were the same prominent economics, business leaders, and jornalists who had supported the Electoral Alternative 2013, who had previously challenged the constitutionality of the German government`s eurozone policies at the Federal Constitutional Court.

AfD`s ideology is German nationalism, Ultranationalism, Right-wing populism, Euroscepticism, National conservatism, Social conservatism, Economic liberalism, Anti-Islam, Anti-immigration, Anti-feminism, Direct democracy, Climate change denier and Right-wing to far-right.

According to its interim electoral manifesto, the party is against same-sex marriage and favours civil unions. The party is also against adoption for same-sex couples. The left-leaning newspaper Die Tageszeitung described the group as advocating «old gender roles».

Wolfgang Gedeon, an elcted AfD representative, has included feminism, along with «sexualism» and «migrationism», in an ideology he calls «green communism» that he opposes, and argues for family values as part of German identity. As AfD has campaigned for traditional roles for women, it has aligned itself with groups opposed to modern feminism.

Thomas Kemmerich of the Free Democratic Party (FDP) was elected as the state prime minister of Thuringia with the votes of the CDU and the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) on Wednesday.

Many people believe that Kemmerich`s election with the help of the AfD would have effects beyond the state and endanger the stability of the political system in Germany.

After Kemmerich`s election, leading politicians of most German parties critized process and called for a new elections in Thuringia. On national level, all major parties have shunned cooperation with the AfD.

Angela Merkel described Kemmerich`s AfD-backed election as «unforgivable».

The fall of the Berlin Wall is a symbol of the Cold War in post-World War II Europe and it illustrated the gap between two political ideologies; Capitalism and Communism

30 years ago, some people in Germany were isolated from the rest of the world. They were trapped inside the Berlin Wall that was a guarded concrete barrier that physically and ideologically divided Berlin from 1961 to 1989.

Construction of the Wall was commenced by the German Democratic Republic (GDR, East Germany) on 13 August 1961. The Wall cut off West Berlin from surrounding East Germany, including East Berlin.

The Eastern Bloc portrayed the Wall as protecting its population from fascist elements conspriring to prevent the «will of the people» in building a socialist state in East Germany. GDR authorities officially referred to the Berlin Wall as the Anti-Fascist Protection Rampart.

The West Berlin city government sometimes referred to it as the «Wall of Shame», a term coined by mayor Willy Brandt in reference to the Wall`s restriction on freedom of movement. The wall came to symbolize physically the «Iron Curtain» that separated Western Europe and the Eastern Bloc during the Cold War.

U.S Secretary of State Mike Pompeo praised Reagan on Friday, saying he «courageously denounced the greatest threat to that freedom, the Soviet Empire, the evil Empire.» Reagan held a speech in 1987, but John F Kennedy said «Ich bin ein Berliner» in a speech in West Berlin, on June 26, 1963.

That speech is widely regarded as the best-known speech of the Cold War and the most famous anti-communist speech.

Kennedy aimed to underline the support of the United States for West Germany 22 months after Soviet-occupied East Germany erected the Berliin Wall to prevent mass emigration to the West. The message was aimed as much at the Soviets as it was at Berliners and was a clear statement of U.S policy in the wake of the construction of the Berlin Wall.

Another phrase in the speech was also spoken in German, «Lasst sie nach Berlin kommen» (Let them come to Berlin»), addressed at those who claimed «we can work with the Communists», a remark at which Nikita Khrushchev scoffed only days later.

Chancellor Angela Merkel thanked the United States for its support in reunification in a speech on Friday. Kennedy`s speech «Ich bin ein Berliner», and Ronald Reagan`s memorable Berlin sentence from 1987, «Mr. Gorbachev tear down this wall,» as well as Barrack Obama`s speech at the Brandenburg Gate in 2016, are in all German`s memories.

Germany`s capital, Berlin was deep within the area controlled after World War II by the Soviet Union. Initially governed in four sectors controlled by the four Allied powers (United States, United Kingdom, France and the Soviet Union).

Tensions of the Cold War escalated until the Soviet forces implemented the Berlin Blockade, which the Western allies relieved with the dramatic airlift. Afterward, the sectors border between East and West was closed everywhere but in Berlin.

Hundreds of thousands of East Germans defected to the West via West Berlin, a labour drain that threatened East Germany with economic collapse.

In 1961, the East German government under Walter Ulbricht erected a barbed-wire barrier around West Berlin, officially called the antifaschistischer Schutzwall (anti-fascist protective barrier).

The East German authorities argued that it was meant to prevent spies and agents of West Germany from crossing into East. However, it was universally known as the Berliin Wall and its real purpose was to keep East German citizens from escaping to the West.

The Wall closed the biggest loophole in the Iron Curtain, and Berlin went from being one of the easiest places to cross from East Europe to West Europe to being one of the most difficult.

The West, including the U.S., was accused of failing to respond forcefully to the erection of the Wall. Officially, Berlin was under joint occupation by the four allied powers, each with primary responsibility for a certain zone.

Kennedy`s speech marked the first instance where the U.S acknowledged that East Berlin was part of the Soviet bloc along with the rest of East Germany. On July 25, 1961, Kennedy insisted in a presidential address that the U.S would defend West Berlin, asserting its Four-Power rights, while making it clear that challenging the Soviet presence in Germany was not possible.

30 years ago, in 1989, a series of revolutions in nearby Eastern Bloc countries, Poland and Hungary in particular, caused a chain reaction in East Germany that ultimately resulted in the demise of the Wall.

After several weeks of unrest, the East German government announced on 9 November 1989 that all GDR citizens could visit West Germany and West Berlin. Crowds of East Germans crossed and climbed onto the Wall, joined by West Germans on the other side in a celebratory atmosphere.

The «fall of the Berlin Wall» paved the way for German reunification, which formally took place on 3 October 1990.

Some people in Berlin say that they are more divided today than 30 years ago. It actually started right after World War II. East Germany differed from West Germany (Federal Republic of Germany), which developed into a Western capitalist country with a social market economy and a democratic parliamentary government.

Continual economic growth starting in the 1950`s fueled a 20-year «economic miracle». As West Germany`s eceonomy grew, and its standard of living steadily improved, many East Germans wanted to move to West Germany.

Today, we can see that it all boil down to one ting: The richest people in Germany live in the West.

Big companies and high income is missing in the East were only 36 og Germany`s 500 biggest companies have headquarters. In 1991, East Germany`s GDP per capita was equivalent to just 43 percent of that in West Germany, but now it`s 75 percent (2018). According to a poll, most East Germans still feel like «second class citizens.»

About 2 million people have left the East for the West after the fall of the wall, and two thirds of them were women. The Eastern population is older, poorer and more male. Only two soccer teams out of 18 are from the East. Interestigly, the far-right is doing it better in the East.

It all goes back to Stalin and the Communists. The German Democratic Republic (GDP, East Germany) was declared on 7 October 1949. By a secret treaty, the Soviet Ministry of Foreign Affairs accorded the East German state administrative authority, but not autonomy. The Soviet permeated East German administrative, military and secret police structure and had full control.

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) said schools were «a justifiable source of pride for the East Germans.» OECD said that while education system in the former West focused on dividing children into different ability groups early on, the Eastern system was more equitable.

But after the fall of the wall, the East was eager to do everything in the Western way, even education. The education system in the East become more unequal. Kids drops out of school and are worce off in the East than in the West. In West Germany, people look back at East Germany in a very negative sense.

The West are more conservative and religious. Politically, Germany is still very divided. Voters in the former Communist states are voting the far-right AfD.

You can see what the communists have done to the mindset and the community. We know the story of one of the founders of Google, Sergei Brin. His parents escaped from Moscow to the United States. They separated the kids on the school. Brin couldn`t participate with the other kids in gym and matematics.

Indoctrination of Marxism-Leninism became a compulsory part of the school curricula, sending professors and students fleeing to the West. The East Germans created an elaborate political police apparatus that kept the population under close surveillance, inluding Soviet SMERSH secret police.

Who wants to live in a hell like this? The emigrants tended to be young and well-educated, leading to the brain drain feared by officials in East Germany. They stated «the flight of the intelligentsia has reached a particularly critical phase.»

The loss was disproportionately heavy among professionals, engineers, technicians, physicians, teachers, lawyers and skilled workers. The brain drain of professionals had become so damaging to the political credibility and economic viability of the East Germany that the re-securing of the German communist frontier was imperative.

Following World War II, Soviet leader Joseph Stalin headed a group of nations on his Western border, the Eastern Bloc, that then included Poland, Hungary and Czechoslovakia, which he wished to maintain alongside a weakened Soviet-controlled Germany.

As early as 1945, Stalin revealed to German communist leaders that he expected to slowly undermine the British position within the British occupation zone, that the United States would withdraw within a year or two, and that nothing would then stand in the way of a unified communist Germany within the bloc.

The major task of the ruling communist party in the Soviet zone was to channel Soviet orders down to both the administrative apparatus and the other bloc parties, which in turn would be presented as internal measures.

Property and industry was nationalized in the East German zone. If statements or decisions deviated from the described line, reprimands and punishment would ensure, such as imprisonment, torture and even death.

In 1949, following disagreements regarding reconstruction and a new German currency, Stalin instituted the Berlin Blockade, preventing food, materials and supplies from arriving in West Berlin. The United States, the United Kingdom, France, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and several other countries began a massive «airlift», supplying West Berlin with food and other supplies.

The Soviets mounted a public relations campaign against the Western policy change. Communists attempted to disrupt the elections of 1948, preceding large losses therein, while 300,000 Berliners demonstrated for the international airlift to continue. In May 1949, Stalin lifted the blockade, permintting the resumption of Western shipments to Berlin.

After the Soviet occupation of Eastern Europe at the end of World War II, the majority of those living in the newly acquried areas of the Eastern Bloc aspired to independence and wanted the Soviets to leave.

Taking advantage of the zonal border between accupied zones in Germany the number of GDR citizens moving to West Germany totaled 187,000 in 1950. 165,000 in 1951. 182,000 in 1952, and 331,000 in 1953.

One reason for the sharp 1953 increase was fear of potential further Sovietization, given the increasingly paranoid actions of Joseph Stalin in late 1952 and early 1953.

The fall of the Berlin Wall is a symbol of the Cold War in post-World War II Europe. The Wall separated East and West Berlin for 28 years, and it illustrated the gap between two political ideologies; Capitalism and Communism.

On Saturday 9 November, Berlin will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the peaceful revolution and the fall of the wall.

China is staging one of its biggest military parades ever while Hong Kong`s protesters made a “Chinazi” flag

China is staging one of its biggest military parades ever. It`s a celebration of 70 years of Communist Party rule as pure, political triumph. It is set to be the largest military parade and mass pageant in Chinese history.

The 70th Anniversary of the Founding of The People`s Republic of China is an upcoming ceremonial event with a grand military parade as its spotlight to celebrate National Day of the People`s Republic of China that is scheduled to take place on 1 October 2019 in Beijing.

President and Chairman of the Central Military Commission Xi Jinping, who will be the guest of honor, will give the holiday address to the nation and Chinese expatriates abrod before inspecting the formations along Chang`an Avenue.

The Communist Party of China had defeated the Kuomintang Party following the Chinese Civil War, which occurred intermittently between 1927 and 1949. In the aftermath of the civil war, the Kuomintang and its loyalists then retreated to the island of Formosa (also known as Taiwan), formerly a prefecture of the Qing Empire, which had been under Japanese colonial rule from 1895 to 1945.

The founding of the People`s Republic of China was formally proclaimed by Mao Zedong, the Chairman of the Communist Party of China, on 1 October 1949 at 03:00 pm in Tiananmen Square in Beijing.

The first public parade of the then new People`s Liberation Army took place there, following the chairman`s address of the formal foundation of the new republic. Before this, as the national anthem March of the Volunteers was played, the new national flag of the People`s Republic of China was officially unveiled to the newly founded nation and hoisted for the first time during the celebrations as a 21-gun salute fired in the distance.

In its early years, the People`s Republic of China was not internationally recognized as the Republic of China held its seat in the United Nations and the Security Council as the sole legitimate government of «China» by the United States and Western nations.

A massive National Day fireworkks display had been planned along the harbour in Hong Kong to celebrate the 70th anniversary. As it has done every year since 1997, Hong Kong government cancelled them «for safety reasons» over the protests in the city that have lasted since March.

Safety is one thing. Popularity is another. Hong Kongers doesn`t like Beijing and China.

Hong Kongers have made a new poster: swastikas and the term «Chinazi.»

A few weeks ago, the protesters marched to the US consulate to urge Congress to pass the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act. Many had American flags. Others had a red flag with yellow stars arranged in the shape of a swastika.

A week later they all had a «Chinazi» flag made by local pro-democracy party people power. They also made a banner that cast chief executive Carrie Lam as an unmistakable Hitler, giving her the lavel «Butcher Carrie» against a backdrop of yellow swastikas.

On Sunday 29 September, coinciding with the 80th anniversary of the divvying up of occupied Poland between Germany and the Soviet Union, Hong Kongers held a large protest, alternately dubbed the «Global Anti-Totalitarianism March» and the «Global Anti-Chinazi March,» alongside dozens of citis around the world.

«Chinazi» is drawing comparisons between the Holocaust`s concentration camps and China`s internment camps in Xinjiang.

Hitler and the Nazis committed one of the worst atrocities ever in human history, orchestrating a state-sponsored genocide that led to the murder of millions of people. Not only Jews, but also political opponents, gay men, roman`s, gipsy`s and millions of mentally and physically handicapped induviduals.

Comparing China to Nazi Germany comes from the author of the book; Nazi China, written by the exiled Chinese writer Yu Jie. The man also wrote a biography of the late Nobel Peace Prize laureate and activist Liu Xiaobo.

Chinese state media called Hong Kong`s protesters «Blacknazi,» while the police called them «cockroaches,» and protesters regularly refer to police as «dogs.»

Hitler and the Nazi`s committed one of the worst atrocities ever in human history. They were the worst state-sponsored terrorist group in human history. Trump talked about freedom of religion, hate crime and state-sponsored torror in his UN speech last week, and the term «Chinazi» sends a warning to the world. The history may repeat itself.

Since the handover in 1997, the share of people in Hong Kong identifying as Chinese have declined, reaching 38,6 percent in 2008. Today, the number is just 10,8 percent. Meanwhile, the share of people identifying as HongKongers has increased dramatically over the last decade, hitting 53 percent this year.

China Central Television (CCTV) is expected to mainly broadcast sychronously for domestic and foreign TV channels with CCTV-1 as the producing channel for the celebrations, while national, provincial and city broadcasters and TV stations, domestic internet video, portals, and live webcast sites may also broadcast the event simultaneously.

The China Media Group (general station) may also broadcast live overseas through websites such as YouTube.

People in China are grateful and loyal and accept the Communist Party and their lack of political freedom because they have benefited from this explosion of material wealth and opportunity. Don`t forget that free market Capitalism made China rich.
