The terrible cost of willing moral blindness

By Aussiegirl

Scribe - n. - One of a learned class in ancient Palestine studying the scriptures and serving as copyists, editors, teachers and jurists. 2. An official or public secretary or clerk, a copier of manuscripts. 3. Author, specifically journalist.

Shall we add invaluable commenter on Ultima Thule and most welcome guest? In response to our article on David Horowitz's forthcoming book on leftist professors, Scribe is moved to share the following, quoted below.

Perhaps Orwell said it best: "The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them."

Scribe said:

It is interesting that during the Nazi era, the majority of German academics were Nazi sympathizers. The philosopher Heidegger, whose office overlooked a death camp, was probably one of the more famous ones. He never questioned what went on in the death camp, nor did he ever feel regret for his Nazi past. Many German academics also contributed to the Nazi eugenics programs and headed or performed the medical experimentations on prisoners.

During this time, German academics enflamed their students against the Jewish students and the administration expelled Jewish students and professors from universities. Many Jewish academics, like Einstein and Enrico Ferme, had to flee. Soon Jews were expelled from all schools. Jewish and those German students who refused to join the Hitler Youth were also beaten or killed.

I met a Jewish man who was an Austrian teen-ager at the time that the Nazis took over Austria. His teacher was a dapper, quiet man who always wore English tweeds, and in every Austrian classroom was a crucifix. The day the Nazis took over Austria, this teacher entered the classroom dressed in a storm trooper uniform, took down the crucifix and put in its place a picture of Hitler. "This is your god now." he said to the class. Then he said: "You Jews, get out." All the Jewish students ran out or faced beatings or worse.

It looks as if our academia have not learned from the shameful example of their German colleagues. Instead, there has been a steady erosion on the part of the academics themselves to dismantle the Judeo-Christian ethos of Western culture. Academics like Ward Church go to the extreme to altogether denying the value of Western civilization in favor of multiculturalist, third world "victim" amoral politics that is very similar in tone and content to Nazi propaganda.

Have the academics put on Brownshirts to capture and lead astray again the minds of our young? Have they no shame?
