The possible roots of Charles Johnson’s Nazi obsessionPosted: November 19, 2014
It just dawn on me what could possibly be the cause of Charles Johnson’s Nazi obsession. As we know, he is an avid comic book reader and a big fan of the Marvel Universe as featured in the Avengers Movie and the TV show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Watching last night’s episode, it dawned on me why Charles has an obsession with Nazis and concocted conspiracy theories about some Nazi plot to take over the world.
One of the nemesis of S.H.I.E.L.D and the Avengers is Hydra. This organization had it roots in a Nazi secret society. After the war when the US recruited German scientists for its space and missile programs, Hydra infiltrated the US government and attempted to bring down S.H.I.E.L.D.
HYDRA is a terrorist-military organization bent on world domination. It was founded shortly after the rise of Nazism in Germany by Johann Schmidt as the scientific branch of the Nazi Schutzstaffel. Its main purpose was to create advanced weaponry for the German armies, but over the years, members of HYDRA became loyal only to Schmidt himself. At the beginning of World War II, HYDRA still fought for the Nazi cause, but in 1943, Schmidt separated HYDRA from Nazi Germany to start his own conquest of the world.
After its defeat at the hands of Captain America in 1945 and the subsequent disappearance of Johann Schmidt, HYDRA was secretly rebuilt inside S.H.I.E.L.D. by Schmidt’s top scientist Arnim Zola who was recruited into the agency during Operation Paperclip. Though Zola’s body died in 1972, HYDRA was already well established, and Zola’s mind continued to live in a computer. In the following decades, HYDRA secretly fed crises around the world, aiming to create a society that would accept the fascist New World Order just to gain its security.
By the beginning of the 21st century, agents of HYDRA managed to spread outside of S.H.I.E.L.D., infiltrating many important organizations, including the United States Senate, and establishing many secret bases around the world. One of HYDRA’s top agents in S.H.I.E.L.D., John Garrett, secretly led the Centipede Project with the goal to recreate the Super Soldier. In 2014, HYDRA’s plans for world domination almost succeeded through their agent Alexander Pierce and S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Project Insight. However, their plan to eliminate 20 million people who posed a threat to HYDRA failed because of the efforts of HYDRA’s oldest enemy, Captain America, who publicly exposed their infiltration of S.H.I.E.L.D. and destroyed their main tool of destruction, three of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Helicarriers. However, HYDRA’s leader Wolfgang von Strucker already had new plans for global domination, plans which included twins declared “miracles” and the Chitauri Scepter.
Charles inspired by Hydra, really believes that there is some super secret Nazi organization bent on world conquest. Starting in 2008, he began to tie different groups together to this Nazis plot. Many of the conspirators included the Republican party, Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, the Vlaams Belang, Tobacco Companies, the Likud party of Israel, Glenn Beck, Glenn Greenwald, Rand Paul, Rush Limbaugh, the Tea Party, Creationists, Libertarians, Colombian Rightwing politicians, Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Scott Walker, Charles C. Johnson, National Review, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Mia Love, Ben Carson, Jonah Goldberg, Alex Jones, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Robert Stacy McCain, anti-Jihadi groups, the Diary of Daedalus and many others. He insinuated that this cabal was somehow led by Ron Paul and the capital of this global 4th Reich would be based out of Tennessee.
Every thread he has done since the 2008/2009 has been based on some shadowy Nazi plot to establish a global 4th Reich. It is very possible, that he is influenced by the Hydra storyline form the Marvel Universe. Charles plays the role of an online superhero stopping this Nazi plot.
The clip below is what Charles envisions Ron Paul saying to his conspirators in some secret Nazi base in Tennessee.
Could Hydra be the inspiration for Charles Johnson’s Ron Paul led Nazi conspiracy theory?
