The Islamic State executed Lt. Muath Al-Kaseasbeh, a Jordanian pilot, by burning him alive. They filmed it and distributed it out to the world, prompting anger and sadness across the world. Sadly, it's just another example of a world gone insane. On radio this morning, Glenn drew comparisons to how the Nazis propagandized their heinous actions to the methods of the Islamic State today.
Today's theme is madness. The world has gone absolutely stark raving mad. We started last hour with ISIS, and the putting of a prisoner in a cage, dousing him with gasoline, making a movie out of this. This is not just a beheading video. They have moved on from 'hey, we'll hold up a black flag and behead someone.' They have moved on. They are now in full-fledged production. They are now making movies actually the way the Nazis made the propaganda movies in the 1930s.
The first real propaganda movie coming from Germany was -- do you know? The Titanic. The first real epic telling of the Titanic came from Germany, and it was to teach Germans that capitalism was bad. And it showed the capitalists cutting corners every step of the way and they inserted a German as the second in command, and he was begging the captain the whole time, 'please, please, don't you understand, you are going to kill everybody on board.' And so that was the first piece of propaganda. I want to say Mengele. Who was the big -- Goebbels was a frustrated filmmaker, and he wanted to make this film, and he did. He became the minister of propaganda. That was all learned from the Progressives here in America. Those aren't my words. Those are Goebbels' words. Right before the Third Reich ended, Germany went over and planted these seeds in the Middle East. They planted them in
Persia. Persia -- I had no idea why Persia all of a sudden was Iran but Persia changed the name. Iran in Persian means Aryan. They changed the name to Aryan as a gift to the Third Reich and to the Führer. They believed they were right; kill all the Jews.
So these seeds were planted in the Middle East, and now you are seeing the whole Nazi glory come back, this time under a black flag, not a red and black flag. So insanity in the Middle East. I have posted the video and the pictures up on TheBlaze.com. I think it is -- we didn't post them yesterday. No one is really posted them. I think it is important for people to see them, I think it is important because it is a film. It is not just a beheading video. It is, as Pat described, a movie, where they have taken this guy, and they have flashback scenes with him, and then at the end, he walks into a cage and they set him on fire, but it's real.
I think America and the world needs to look evil in the eye and stop with this bull crap that this has nothing to do with Islam. This has everything to do with Islam. Their understanding of Islam, but it is an Islamic jihad. That doesn't make all Muslims bad. In fact Muslims are going to be -- this guy was a Muslim. Muslims are on the front line of being beheaded hand burned to death by these crazy nut jobs, as much as the westboro Baptist church has anything to do with the beg Baptist church, it has nothing to do with the regular Baptist church, but they are doing it in the name of God. These guys are doing it in the name of Allah. Until we could have adult conversations, we are never going to be able to win. Until we can look evil in the eye, but we have gone mad.
So the question is, will you go down the road of madness yourself? Will you be remembered as someone who said wake up, or will you be one of these people who decide just to lay in the poppy field and fall fast asleep, because that's what they want you to do. The world needs you to believe that everything is fine. Unemployment really is at 5.6, that the dollar being printed isn't going to cause any problems whatsoever, that Islamic extremism has nothing to do, Islamic jihad has nothing to do with jihad or Islamic.
