Drawing Inspiration From Hitler, UK Threatens To Arrest Thought Criminals Before Olympics
London 2012 is about the politics of fear

Following the footsteps of Adolf Hitler, who had undesirables and political enemies rounded up and imprisoned before the 1936 Berlin Olympics, the British government is threatening jail time for protesters violating banning orders preventing them from coming close to any Olympic venue.
“The UK government is rounding on protesters ahead of this summer’s Olympics, issuing the first court order to ban an Occupy activist from the event. The unprecedented security measures for the Games have been branded as over-the-top,” reports RT.
One such banning order was handed out to 29 year-old Simon Moore, who committed the egregious act of protesting against a practice basketball court being built near the Olympic park in East London. He faces a 5-year jail sentence if he ventures “within 100 yards of Olympic venues, homes of participants, officials or spectators and the route of the Olympic torch.”
“I think it’s insane. I think it shows the prevailing state of consciousness in our governments and the world, which is one of fear – fear and control,” Moore told RT’s Laura Smith.
In rounding up potential troublemakers ahead of the games, the British government is drawing inspiration from none other than Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.
In an effort to “clean up” Berlin before the 1936 Olympics, the German Ministry of Interior authorized the chief of the Berlin Police to arrest all undesirables – mainly Gypsies – prior to the Games and have them slung in detention camps. Political enemies were also incarcerated in the camps.
