We need to get out and vote this year or USA Republicans will lose majority in Congress and Trump will be impeached.
The Jew by Joseph Goebbels

(translation by Hadding Scott, 2011)
There is open discussion about all questions in Germany, and every German claims the right to decide this way or that on all issues. One is Catholic, another Protestant; one is a job-seeker, another an employer; the capitalist, the socialist; the democrat, the aristocrat. A commitment to this side or that has nothing inherently dishonorable for the man of our era. It happens in all openness, and where the opposites still appear unclear and muddled, one clarifies them through discussions into argument and counter-argument. Only one issue is barred from public consideration, and it is provocative even to say it: the Jewish Question. It is taboo in the Republic.
Against all insults the Jew is immunized: words like rogue, parasite, deceiver, profiteer, affect him like water on a duck's back. Call him Jew, and you will ascertain with astonishment how he is startled, how he is struck, how he suddenly shrinks into himself completely small: "I am recognized."
It is pointless to defend oneself against the Jew. He will proceed lightning-fast from his assuredness to the attack and with his cabalistics will crush all means of defense in his opponent.
Quickly he makes his opponent into what the opponent wanted to attack in him: the liar, the dusturber of the peace, the terrorist. Nothing would be more wrong than to try to defend oneself against that. Indeed the Jew would like that. Then he invents new lies daily, against which his opponent must constantly be on the defensive, and the result is that in the midst of loudly defending himself he never gets around to what the Jew really fears: to attack him. The accused has now become the accuser, and with a great shriek he forces the accuser into the dock. Thus it always went until now, whenever a man or a movement saw the need to combat the Jew. So also would it go for us, if we were not familiar with his nature to the last detail, and if we did not have the courage to derive our radical conclusions from this awareness. And they are:
With these principles the movement to oppose the Jew has a prospect of success. And therefore such a movement for the first time is taken seriously and feared by the Jew.
That he makes a lot of noise and objects to it, is only a proof that it is correct. We are happy to find the appropriate certification immediately in these lines in the Jewish gazettes. Let them scream terror there. To that we answer with the famous utterance of Mussolini: "Terror? Never! It is social hygiene. We are taking these individuals out of circulation, as a physician takes a bacillus out of the body's circulation."
Please note, this is not a speech; it is a writing. It would need a different heading - perhaps "Goebbels Essays"? You might want to remove the category "Goebbels Speeches" Thanks. Sorry, I can't do it because I am still learning and messed up before with categories. Thank you so much if you could help.
