For those who are unaware the Gun Control Act of 1968 very similar to Nazi gun control laws that were implemented to disarm Jews. Jews for the Preservation of Firearm Ownership published an excellent book titles “Gun Control” Gateway to Tyranny that compares an english translation of the Nazi gun control laws to the Gun Control Act of 1968 and the similarities cannot be denies.
Consider this, I’m not surprised by the fact that the state is moving to emulate more Nazi laws:
Call it the return of the Reichsfluchtsteuer.
The president of Americans for Tax Reform, Grover Norquist, did not use the term. But that is what Mr. Norquist was talking about when he spoke to The Hill newspaper about the legislation proposed by Senator Schumer, the Democrat of New York, to tax at a 30 percent rate the $2 billion capital gains of Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin, who renounced his American citizenship before Facebook’s initial public offering.
“I think Schumer can probably find the legislation to do this. It existed in Germany in the 1930s and Rhodesia in the ’70s and in South Africa as well,” Mr. Norquist said. “He probably just plagiarized it and translated it from the original German.”
The Reichsfluchsteuer, or Reich flight tax, that the Nazis imposed on Jews trying to flee in the 1930s was 25 percent; Mr. Schumer and his Senate colleague Bob Casey, Democrat of Pennsylvania, want 30 percent. Give Mr. Schumer some credit for creativity, Mr. Norquist; the New Yorker did not just translate, he also raised the rate.
When you’re a fascist regime it only makes sense to take ideas from former fascist regimes. Noting the state’s propensity to simply repeat failed policies but harder we can see that our politicians took what the Nazis did, stealing 25 percent, and did it hard, stealing 30 percent.
