The Big Lie

Tell a big enough lie long enough and people will believe it. -- Stitches 77

All this was inspired by the principle--which is quite true within itself--that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big liethan the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.
—Adolf Hitler , Mein Kampf, vol. I, ch. X[1]

If you tell a big enough lie and do it long enough, you can fool the ignorant masses to do believing damn near anything. Each of the groups and people targeted by this blog have not only bought the BIG LIE, they help propagate it. In the case of the closely knit groups tied to Absolute Zero United, the CREATE the BIG LIE.

The easiest way for Hitler to silence the Jews was to dehumanize them and blame them for everything under the sun, praying on the general fear and inorance of a people still recovering from WW1. AZU type groups attack by dehumanizing, comparing all opponents to "NAMBLA". Consider the following statement from Stitches 77:

Patty Wetterling's "crime" that drew the ire of AZU? She released an article calling for reforming sex offender laws. It is a common tactic to dehumanize someone by comparing them to the worst possible person out there. Ironically the man who made this technique popular is the the person most point to as the most evil person in history. This is the person AZU mimics the most, after all. 

"These teens were caught having consensual relations with each other!
Quick, brand them as sex offenders, then deny we do it!"
Each group I tagged have done the same, exploiting the fear and ignorance of the populace for fame and fortune. People believe those lies, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. However, there will come a time when people begin to see through those lies and see the truth behind the Big Lie. For the Germans, it took utter humiliation and their misdeeds exposed for the world to see. 
Thankfully, people are beginning to see the truth. Maybe that is why most of these groups, except the NCMEC, are considered fringe groups with few members and little support. Stand up to the BIG LIE and demand the truth.

As an aside, you can't spell STITCHES 77 without SS

As the saying goes, Stitches couldn't lie straight in bed. I'm sure she's told so many lies over the years she'd now be struggling to be able to discern truth from fiction.

I must be right on the money since the trolls have flooded by inbox with their same tired insults and idle threats. Do you think they'll ever change their playbook? The same boring rants got old years ago. That's why I rarely cover them any more.
