George W. Bush’s 9/11 Reichstag Fire
KENTROVERSY COMMENT: The following article was published by Aljezerra.com on Monday, September 12, 2005. It discusses some issues that millions of Americans have been discussing amongst themselves, their families, and friends during these past four years.
This is significant insofar as it is among the very first mainstream news media outlets to publicly make the comparison between Bush Jr. and Adolph Hitler.
However, the article failed to mention the true and provable connection between Prescott Bush (Junior's grandfather) and his role in the Wall Street funding of the Nazi party.

And for those readers who may not want to believe this is true --- here are a couple of mainstream news articles on Prescott Bush being prosecuted under the Trading With The Enemy Act:

GEORGE W. BUSH'S 9/11 REICHSTAG FIRE
Bush’s administration has turned 9/11 tragedy into a cheap excuse to bury the core freedoms
As Hitler was rising to power in 1930's, someone did him the favor of burning the Reichstag, the German Parliament. A lot of analysts said that the Nazis burnt it down themselves.
But Hitler's followers turned that fire into a horrific wave of “terror,” suspending civil rights and civil liberties. They fattened their war machine and rode the fascist tide into a full-blown dictatorship.
Numerous political analysts drew parallelism between the White House’s repetitive 9/11 rhetoric, recrimination and retaliation and Reichstag fire. Actually, a lot of Americans support the theory that Bush’s admin brought down the World Trade Center itself.
Let’s look at the similarities between the two regimes:
Like Hitler, Bush came to power with a minority of votes. He used the September 11 tragedy in much the way the Nazis jumped on the Reichstag fire, ignoring the damaged caused to his country and nation.
Four years have passed since September 11 attacks but the American President has failed to capture or try the perpetrators, instead, he preferred to use the tragedy to move forward with an extreme rightist agenda, crushing civil liberties, shutting up all opposition, fattening a war machine, and attacking sovereign countries without good reason or evidence of involvement in 9/11 attacks, killing thousands of civilians, and creating a staunch animosity against his nation.
And as the nation was busy mourning those who lost their lives in one of the most twisted acts of “terrorism" imaginable, Bush's brother Jeb made another mockery of the election process. In Florida, where the 2000 election was stolen, voting machines were again placed in districts mostly inhabited by blacks and Jews. Seizing the chance of the nation's eyes directed elsewhere, fatal chaos was injected into the Democratic primary meant to choose Jeb's fall opponent. Dysfunctional voting machines and manipulated poll hours shredded the democratic process.
Meanwhile John Ashcroft has shredded the American Bill of Rights like no one can ever imagine. Under the cloak of terror, the new Grand Inquisitor eliminated the first ten amendments to the Constitution except the second, which allows him and his lobby sponsors carry guns.
While admitting staunch hatred of Big Government, Patriotic conservatives trashed every guarantee of individual freedom.
And again under the guise of fighting “terrorism”, the right has become the ultimate anti-Constitutional terrorist.
And the regime started to be more like many dictatorships the U.S. installed itself throughout the whole world to serve its interest. Pinochet. Somoza. Saddam Hussein. The Shah. Noriega. Mobutu. Marcos. Suharto.
After all, anti-war protestors threw the word "fascist" around in the later 1960s like a common epithet.
Lyndon Johnson was not a fascist, and Richard Nixon was still forced to follow with the Bill of Rights in tact. Though the U.S. was deep in an actual shooting war, guarantees of free speech, a fair and public trial were still in place.
But those guarantees don’t exist now. Freedoms were diminished during the Civil War and World Wars 1 & 2. But Bush’s present war has no clear enemy, no clear goal, and most importantly, no clear end. It’s nothing but a pretext to shred freedom and opposition.
And because these powers are currently primarily used against people of color, the majority of Americans believe these new power won't affect them. But that’s far from true, as in Germany, it's only a matter of time before everyone and anyone is intimidated and ubject to official attack.
Analysts say that this is the most dangerous time in the history of the United States.
With a bought media and a compliant Congress, Bush’s administration has turned 9/11 tragedy into a cheap excuse to bury the freedoms that had in the past made America great.
