The Ad: “What Really Matters”

RON PAUL: “I happen to be a believer. I’m a Christian. And I do write about it. But I specifically say I don’t carry my religion on my sleeve. Sometimes I had been annoyed about the prayer breakfast in Washington. I never attended the prayer breakfast in Washington, although I am a believer. I just thought that was more publicity. And, you know, the Bible does teach us that we should say our prayers in a closed room, and not flaunt it, and not to pretend you’re holier than– others. So, I’ve approached it that way.”
The following photos provide a pictorial glimpse of Hitler, how his Nazis mixed religion with government, and the support for Hitler by the Protestant and Catholic Churches in Germany. In, no way, does this gallery of photos intend to support Nazism or anti-Semitism, but instead, intends to warn against them.

If the reader has not already done so, I again urge you to read the book, Hitler’s Cross, which was written by Erwin Lutzer and published by Moody Press. This book should be “required reading” for every pastor and Christian layman in America. In his book, Lutzer focuses on the attitudes and actions of Germany’s pastors and churches during the rise and reign of the Third Reich. It is a masterpiece.
For those of us living in a country and time far removed from Hitler’s Germany, it is hard to comprehend how that nation’s Christians–and especially its ministers–could have been so thoroughly taken in by old Adolf. We assume such an event could never happen again–especially to us. However, to any honest observer of history, the conditions of the Church in America today are eerily similar to those of the Church in Nazi Germany.
…When Ron Paul was asked about Mike Huckabee’s overt usage of a cross for a campaign advertisement, he quoted Sinclair Lewis as saying, “When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross.” Many Christians railed against Dr. Paul for making this comment. However, the truth is, Ron Paul (himself a committed Christian) is one hundred percent right! (To see how Hitler used this same tactic, I invite readers to note the photograph of the German Fuhrer in Lutzer’s book, on page 75, which shows Hitler coming out of church with a large emblem of the Cross directly over his head. This photo was used extensively by Hitler during his political campaigns.)
… As a result of Hitler’s brilliant deception, Christians throughout Germany were convinced that he was “God’s man.” …
Of course, there were a few in Germany who saw through Hitler’s deception. Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a Christian minister who actively opposed Hitler by organizing what he called the “Confessing Church.” These were believers who would not surrender Christ’s sphere of authority to Hitler. They saw through “Hitler’s Cross.” Unfortunately, of the more than 14,000 pastors in Germany, only 800 joined with Bonhoeffer.
To the vast majority of Germany’s pastors, Bonhoeffer was an “extremist,” or a “kook,” or a “nut.” They relegated Bonhoeffer to the fringe of Christendom. They believed Hitler and repudiated Bonhoeffer; they chose Hitler’s “German Church” over the Confessing Church. …
For example, Mike Huckabee’s success in Iowa is largely due to the pastors and Christians of that State buying into his “Christian” campaign. In a manner very similar to the 2000 campaign of George W. Bush, Huckabee has carried his political campaign on the Cross. At the same time, however, Mike Huckabee (as does George W. Bush) embraces and promotes globalism. And, unfortunately, many Christians and pastors do not seem to notice or care.
On Tuesday at 7 Eastern Glenn Beck interviews Ron Paul and scrolls the message Paul is Dead, Paul is Dead, Paul is Dead from Huckabee on the bottom of the screen.by Michael McDonnough
I find it very offensive for Glenn Beck to be scrolling the message Paul is Dead, Paul is Dead, Paul is Dead on the bottom of the screen during the interview with Ron Paul.
I think he should make it clear that he wishes no ill will to Dr. Ron Paul. His interview I thought was fair on the surface but he did take the interview into the typical conspiracy camp.
I would like to know why this guy Huckabee thought it appropriate to make this statement that was scrolling by during this interview? Ron Paul was right in that the threat of Theocons taking over the government is a serious threat to our nation. In his statement of earlier in the day he seemed a bit tired and un focused when he was hit with these off Fauxian questions.
I might add that Paul was talking about domestic threats to our nation at the moment that Huckabee’s death to Paul comments are scrolling by in this video.
The subliminals are pretty obvious to most any trained observer.
I am quite disgusted with Beck for this. I am pretty much disgusted with Huckabee for his statements as well, but that is politics. It is a dirty game. Here is the video.
Some thoughts I have, responding to the comments below.
Thanks for the feedback! Many good points!
It’s hard to say for sure what CNN’s motive was. Perhaps they were just reporting the news, or perhaps they knew exactly how “Paul is dead” would look underneath Ron Paul’s face during the interview, whether they played it before the interview or not.
The networks are owned by the globalist, one-worlders, who are totally aware that a Paul Presidency would seriously set back their fast-track, one-world-government timetable. So they try to marginalize Ron Paul every way they can, mostly by ignoring him (even in many of their polls), and instead trying to bring all of the attention to those whom they know will carry out their agenda, like Mike Hukabee.
Here, Paul finally got a chance to speak more than in just sound-bites (though they still didn’t cover a lot of ground). It is possible CNN ran this to get people to laugh at Paul, which is the Devil’s way.
But what interests me more is why did Mike Huckabee choose this particular expression, given that the opponent who seems to bother him the most is named Paul?
During one of the debates, Huckabee’s true colors came out when he viciously attacked Paul for Paul’s stand on the Iraq war. In my opinion, Huckabee was going for Paul’s jugular, and the words that came to mind were: “mean spirited,” which it just so happens he has a reputation for.
Just because a person was a pastor and says he follows Christ doesn’t mean he does follow Christ sufficiently enough for us to trust him to lead our country. Most evangelicals made this mistake with George W. Bush, and many still won’t see it, or at least admit it – as America is turned into a police state.
John Klar wrote an amazing book where he lays it out clearly: Christian Words, Unchristian Actions: George W. Bush and the Desecration of Christianity in Modern America. If the Evangelicals continue to push Huckabee so hard and he’s elected, John Klar may be able to write an even more tragic sequel.
Go Ron Paul!
Here is the ad Huckabee is referring to when he’s saying “Paul is dead,” to those who say the bookcase looks like a cross.
Everything in short campaign ads is meticulously placed and perfectly lit to make the biggest possible impact. Here, the music is “Silent Night,” and they only have 30 seconds as the brightly lit cross (“It’s only a bookcase”) pans behind Mike Huckabee.
Note, the Christmas tree blocks the bookcase just enough to make the cross horizontally symmetrical, and the lighting is perfect to make the front edge far brighter than the inside of the shelves.
Accident? No way. And it’s like Huckabee to make a joke instead of answering directly – truthfully? And “Paul is dead” may be a joke against Ron Paul. We shouldn’t put it past him.
The cross motif has been done before:
I’m not saying that Huckabee is Hitler. I can see many good things in Huckabee. But as Ron Paul says: “Fascism comes wrapped in a flag, carrying a cross.”
The globalist elite could use Huckabee to carry out their Hitlerish wishes. But they’ll never be able to do that with Ron Paul, who bows to no elitist. Praise God!!!
We must be careful, you all, and not put it past them to use simple, stupid stuff like this to try to manipulate us.
