Blog: The MMM and its Nazi Propaganda
Propaganda was used profusely by the Nazis during the period leading up and during World War II. This is exactly what the MMM has been doing since the seventies and more recently since Paul Berenger managed to trap Sir Anerood Jugnauth into a resignation from the presidency in the belief that overnight SAJ would be prime minister again.
Let’s go back a little and find out what Paul Berenger has been saying about the fall of the government though we cannot overlook the misleading statement of SAJ as reported in Le Matinal on 14 March: Remake2000 ? Sa zistwarsa ! N’en parlons pas. Paul Berenger stated that the end of Navin Ramgoolam was near [Le Mauricien 2 April]. In a statement at Chemin Grenier he said: Apre le 1er-Mai, Navin Ramgoolam pou ena buku kont pou rann la popilasyon, li pou le debi de so la fin [Le Mauricien 21 April].He explained that the main reason to contact SAJ was to provoke early general elections [Express 11 April ].He predicted that the government would not survive after 16 April [Weekend 18 March]. Then he came up with the statement that Il est fort possible que le gouvernement tombe avant le 1er mai [Express 12 April]. These are a few samples of the MMM propaganda machine that has been preparing the population for the imminent fall of the government and the sure victory of the MMM at early general elections.
This kind of propaganda has been at the core of the MMM philosophy since 1969. This is highly reminiscent of the Nazi propaganda war machine that was based on repetition of falsehood. Mein Kampf written by Hitler contains the blueprint of later Nazi propaganda efforts. Assessing his audience, Hitler writes:
"Propaganda must not investigate the truth objectively and, in so far as it is favourable to the other side, present it according to the theoretical rules of justice; yet it must present only that aspect of the truth which is favourable to its own side. (...) The receptive powers of the masses are very restricted, and their understanding is feeble. On the other hand, they quickly forget. Such being the case, all effective propaganda must be confined to a few bare essentials and those must be expressed as far as possible in stereotyped formulas. These slogans should be persistently repeated until the very last individual has come to grasp the idea that has been put forward. (...) Every change that is made in the subject of a propagandist message must always emphasize the same conclusion. The leading slogan must of course be illustrated in many ways and from several angles, but in the end one must always return to the assertion of the same formula." [Reference Wikipedia encyclopedia].
Defeat and death came brutally to Hitler and his stooges after all the evils that were inflicted through that propaganda machine. After all the about to fall of the government the MMM has decided to put on hold or to refrigerate their wish to defeat the government until further notice. This is very amusing and is revealing about the lies and falsehood with which they wanted to lull the population and mislead the electorate that they were taking over. This is how L’Express of 4 May reported the matter: Mise en minorité du gouvernement: SAJ et Paul Bérenger mettent leur projet au frigo. Les dirigeants de l''alliance MSM/MMM ont décidé de geler leur projet de mettre en minorité le gouvernement. So what went wrong in that strategy? What made Paul Berenger so sure that the government would fall?
Now that their strategy has been put in hibernation it is not an exaggeration to say that it will stay in the morgue for a long time until somebody decides to autopsy it without any hope of revival. In the same vein let the people open up their eyes and minds and tell the MMM and its Nazi like propaganda war machine to go into hibernation for the good of the country.
