Jan. 10, 2021 Flashback: Is the DC [J6] Capitol Incident Comparable to the Nazi Reichstag Fire Incident where the German People Lost their Civil Liberties?
The former governor of California and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger in a video compared the January 6 United States Capital protest incident which was apparently partly infiltrated by leftist activists to the Nazi "Night of Broken Glass" incident, but he is wrong and should compare it to the Reichstag Fire incident where the German people lost their civil liberties.

Here is a summary of the actor's video:
On January 11, The Associated Press (AP) headline was "Arnold Schwarzenegger compares US Capitol mob to Nazis."
On the same day, Twitter, in "What's happening" or trending under "Arnold" it said "Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California and actor, compares the insurrection at the Capitol building in Washington DC to the rise of Nazi Germany in a personal video message." In the video AP reported that Schwarzenegger compared the January 6 United States Capital protest incident which was apparently partly infiltrated by leftist activists to the Nazi " Night of Broken Glass" incident :
The Republican said in a video he released on social media on Sunday that “Wednesday was the Night of Broken Glass right here in the United States.” In 1938, Nazis in Germany and Austria vandalized Jewish homes, schools and businesses during an attack that became known as Kristallnacht or “the Night of Broken Glass.”
“The broken glass was in the windows of the United States Capitol. But the mob did not just shatter the windows of the Capitol, they shattered the ideas we took for granted,” he said. “They trampled the very principles on which our country was founded.” [https://apnews.com/article/joe-biden-donald-trump-media-arnold-schwarzenegger-capitol-siege-7f4b710a5b4dd8e49f26980364c539a0?utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=AP&utm_campaign=SocialFlow and https://twitter.com/home and https://twitter.com/search?q=Arnold&src=trend_click&vertical=trends]
Schwarzenegger is monstrously wrong and should have compare it to the Reichstag Fire incident where the German people lost their civil liberties. The On This Day website gives a summary of the Reichstag Fire:
Four weeks after Adolf Hitler was sworn in as the new Chancellor of Germany, the seat of the German Parliament in Berlin, the Reichstag, was burned down. This is one of the most contested and controversial events of Hitler's early years in power, as a mere one day later, Hitler signed the Reichstag Fire Decree which gave his government the legal authority to imprison opponents of the Nazis and suspend many civil liberties in Germany.
The Nazis arrested Marinus van der Lubbe, a Dutch Communist, with setting the fire. He was tried, and executed on January 10, 1934, for the arson act. There has been much debate on whether Lubbe acted alone or whether the Nazis set the fire as a false-flag attack in order to pass the Reichstag Decree and increase their power.
Foremost Nazi historian Ian Kershaw wrote in 1998 that the consensus was that Lubbe had acted alone and that the fire was merely a stroke of luck that the event occurred so the Nazis could use it to their advantage. However, new evidence since then has pointed to the possibility of a Nazi conspiracy. In June 2019 an affidavit in the archives of former investigator Fritz Tobias was discovered. In it Hans-Martin Lennings, an SA operative, claimed in 1955 that he and his SA group drove Lubbe to the scene of the fire - and that the Reichstag was already on fire when they arrived.
Lennings claimed that his team were made to sign a paper denying knowledge of the event, and that they had protested Lubbe's arrest. He later claimed that many involved had been executed but that he had been warned and fled to Czechoslovakia.
Whatever the case, in 2008 a German court posthumously pardoned Lubbe under a law designed to reverse unjust convictions during Nazi persecutions. [https://www.onthisday.com/photos/reichstag-fire]
Many people believe the Schwarzenegger, AP and Twitter false narrative because they have already been sold a bill of goods about the Nazis being "right wingers." It's not true, but the left wing spent a lot of time for this narrative to be built up. Dinesh D'Souza, in his book The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left explains in great detail how and why this was done.

This strategy is now paying off, if people like Schwarzenegger can get away with making comments that are just monstrously ignorant about how civil liberties were lost in Germany and are currently about to be lost in the United States of America.

What can we do to defeat this monstrous strategy of Schwarzenegger, AP, Twitter and the media elites to "criminalize" civil liberties?
What is needed right now, before it is to late, to save America from those who would destroy our God given rights is to pray at home or in church and if called to go to outdoor to prayer rallies in every town and city across the United States for God to pour out His grace on our country to save us from those who would use a Reichstag Fire-like incident to "shattered the ideas we took for granted" which are our civil liberties.
