"The poor still weak, the rich still rule"

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the plebiscite which anointed Adolf Hitler president of the German Republic. Of those sections of the German electorate allowed to vote, some 90 % voiced their support for Hitler's presidency. Hitler, using his position as Chancellor, had already taken steps to curb dissent and destroy the (mostly M-L) left following the Reichstag fire a year earlier; but with the Presidency he claimed direct control over the German military, effectively consolidating power for the fascist dictatorship in Germany.

Wow, what a Happy Day in History!

Was it Jerry Fallwell who thought that Teletubby Tinkie-winkie was gay due to the purple triangle/antennae jutting out of his head? 'Cause in Nazi Germany, it was the Jehovah's Witnesses who wore Purple Triangles in the camps, and queers wore pink ones.

So screw Hitler. AND Fallwell.
