Although Hitler was a Chancellor, he didn’t have as much power. The Communist party was still a threat. Then a key event happened. The Reichstag – German Parliament – was burned a few months after Hitler came to the power and the blame was assigned to the Communists. Following the burning, President Hindenburg clamped down the Communists and repressive measures were taken on all other political parties.

How Adolf Hitler Came to Power

The story of why Hitler came to power is about the reasons why the German people lost their senses and allowed a vicious madman to come to power.?Hitler was a brilliant speaker, and his eyes had a peculiar power over people.???He was a good organiser and politician. He was a driven, unstable man, who believed that he had been called by God to become dictator of Germany and rule the world. This kept him going when other people might have given up. His self-belief persuaded people to believe in him.

Hitler’s rise to power was based upon long-term factors – resentment in the German people, the weakness of the Weimar system – which he exploited through propaganda (paid for by his rich, Communist-fearing backers), the terror of his stormtroopers, and the brilliance of his speeches.

During the ‘roaring twenties’ Germans ignored this vicious little man with his programme of hatred.?? But when the Great Depression ruined their lives, they voted for him in increasing numbers.?? Needing support, and thinking he could control Hitler, President Hindenburg made the mistake in January 1933 of giving Hitler the post of Chancellor.

Let’s talk about hate and the SPLC

The AP suggests the mounting accusations against the group may indicate this sort of error is increasingly common on the part of the SPLC, citing the Carson incident as evidence even the SPLC is aware ?its labels aren?t always foolproof.?

The SPLC is so extreme in its views and ideology that it labels concerns about inadequate screening for ISIS members as being anti-Muslim. By attacking the very groups who are attempting to defend America from terrorism, it is making the American people a target.

The SPLC has begun to blame the rise of jihadi terrorism in America on alleged anti-Muslim talking points from Republican presidential candidates and groups like the CSP, who track jihadist organizations operating against the United States. The candidates almost unanimously agree that the United States should not be taking in refugees from the civil war in Syria, due to the fact that there is no way to screen them out from being potential Islamic State members. The SPLC has labeled their concerns over the safety of Americans ?anti-Muslim,?

…Frank Gaffney, the President and Founder of CSP, firmly rejects the SPLC?s labeling of his defense think tank.

?For 25 years, the Center has worked to secure freedom against those who hate it, including Islamic supremacists, who explicitly seek to suppress free speech and ultimately destroy our constitutional republic and every form of government other than sharia law,?

?The SPLC ?has not limited its destructive influence to costing people their jobs and smearing politicians and defence groups. It has crossed the line into putting people’s lives in danger. One of these people is Pamela Geller. The SPLC has labelled Pamela as an “Islamophobe” and a “hatemonger” which has encouraged more Jihad killers to come after her. In reality, every person that the SPLC labels as an Islamophobe and ?hatemonger is being put on a literal Jihad hit list.
