[quote:Taewen:MV8yNTc1OTg3XzQ0OTM4MjU5XzYxMUFDRjlC] Had to quote this here from another thread. [quote:fnord 54972413:MV8yNTc5NjUwXzQ0OTM3Nzk2X0MyREUzRjRG] The German word for homeland is Heimat. Heimat was a power word in Hitlers propaganda campaign. The specific aspects of Heimat — love and attachment to homeland — left the idea vulnerable to easy assimilation into the fascist "blood and soil" literature of the National Socialists since it is relatively easy to add to the positive feelings for the Heimat a rejection of anything foreign, that however is not there necessarily. It was conceived by the Nazis that the volk community is deeply rooted in the land of their heimat through their practice of agriculture and their ancestral lineage going back hundreds and thousands of years. The Third Reich was regarded at the deepest level as the sacred heimat of the unified volk community—the national slogan was One Reich, One Volk, One Führer. Those who were taken to Nazi concentration camps were those who were officially declared by the SS to be "enemies of the volk community" and thus a threat to the integrity and security of the heimat. Prior to the presidency of George Bush the lesser, the word homeland was not used in the United States. The lesser Bush attempted to use the word in the same way Hitler did in order to promote jingoistic fascism in our country. The Department of Homeland Security is the American equivalent of the Gestapo. It was no accident that the Bush regime hired ex-Stasi administrators to help get DHS off the ground. [/quote] Every time I hear this word 'homeland' I know the context is to forward an agenda that does not bode well for the United States as we know it. Hear the word - be wary. Prior to the 9/11 attack I was unable to find [b]ANY [/b]reference to the USA being referred to as 'the homeland'. [/quote]
During his live speech regarding Iraq, the president
referred to the United States as the 'Homeland'. For some reason, every time I hear a politician say that it gives me the creeps, like a flash of foreign armies marching across the plains of Nebraska
I did some looking around, and I guess I'm not the only one. First time I heard it was from Bush, and it's been cropping up a lot more lately.
Does anyone else get a prickling in the back of the neck when you hear it? I'm an American living in the
, not the 'Homeland'!
I know I'm not the only one. I found this link from back in '02.
