These are the times that try mens’ souls. The summer soldier or the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country, but he that stands by it now, deserves the thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered.                                                                         Thomas Paine

In Calmeyer’s day, tyranny was threatened first by communists, then the Nazis. The Nazis first implemented a complete confiscation of weapons from among the populace. Then intimidation

Today, the biggest threat of tyranny comes from global Islam. In truth, that threat is over 1500 years in the making, but that length of time does not make the Islamic threat any less acute now.

There is no middle ground between The Judeo-Christian system of laws and Sharia Law. Hans Calmeyer was surely aware of the conflict with the Ottoman Empire, as he was well-versed in every battle and war of history. His hobby was after all the reconstruction of battle scenes. We do not know exactly what he would think of Sharia, but Islam and Sharia are closest in their intolerance and fixation on executing the infidel (not just domination of all dhimmi’s) to the very Nazi fascist totalitarianism that Calmeyer so despised that he risked his own life to help its victims.

Sharia is a tyrannical form and system of laws. Westerners generally assume all religions encourage a respect for the dignity of each individual, Islamic law (Sharia) teaches that  non-Muslims should be subjugated or killed in this world. Peace and  prosperity for one's children is not as important as assuring that  Islamic law rules everywhere in the Middle East and eventually in the world.

While Westerners tend to think that all religions  encourage some form of the golden rule, Sharia teaches two systems of  ethics - one for Muslims and another for non-Muslims. Building on tribal practices of the seventh century, Sharia encourages the side of  humanity that wants to take from and subjugate others.

While  Westerners tend to think in terms of religious people developing a  personal understanding of and relationship with God, Sharia advocates executing people who ask difficult questions that could be interpreted  as criticism. It's hard to imagine, that in this day and age, Islamic  scholars agree that those who criticize Islam or choose to stop being  Muslim should be executed. Sadly, while talk of an Islamic reformation  is common and even assumed by many in the West, such murmurings in the  Middle East are silenced through intimidation. Intimidation is an enabler of tyranny.

Tyranny takes many forms. Apparent occasional associations with communists in his early life led the Nazis to suspect Calmeyer of potential disloyalty, and they were right, he would not be loyal to the Nazis, but he never showed any communist sympathies. Rather, he reflected loyalty to the conservative principles of the non-Nazi German army, which he briefly joined to prevent being drafted by the Nazis.

Key Forms of Tyranny:



I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. 
                                                   Thomas Jefferson 

Another form of tyranny Calmeyer would never have countenanced is the treatment of women under Sharia Law, for all intents and purposes enslavement, and in many respects full control over life and death.

All the rights favor the man. The husband is permitted to have  (4 wives) and a temporary wife for an hour (prostitute) at his discretion. In the Muslim faith a Muslim man can marry a child as young as 1 year old and have sexual intimacy with this child. The marriage can be consummated by age 9. Even if a woman is abused she can not obtain a divorce.

A dowry is given to the family in exchange for the woman (who becomes his slave) and for the purchase of the private parts of the woman, to use her as a toy.

Forced sex is common. To prove rape, any woman must have (4) MALE witnesses, clearly impossible in most cases. Often after a woman has been raped, she is  returned to her family and the family must return the dowry. The family has the right to execute her (an honor killing) to restore the honor of  the family. Husbands can beat their wives 'at will' and he does not have to say why he has beaten her.

The Shariah Muslim law controls the private as well  as the public life of the woman.

It is only fitting, and perhaps ironic, that Geert Wilders from Calmeyer’s beloved Netherlands, the outspoken Dutchman very much in the mold of Calmeyer’s burning desire to “Tell them, Tell them” before it is too late, is the most vocal critic of Islam’s inherent military theocracy, that is again the most direct danger to Western Civilization, perhaps all civilizations, today:

geert wilders warning to America

"When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan"                      (Prov 29:2, NKJV)

Any strategy of resistance to tyranny will have to deal with the fact  that tyranny is a curse of God. It must recognize that to rail against God's righteous judgments is merely to perpetuate and aggravate them. It must start with a humble submission to His will, a  reverential fear of His judgments, and a full recognition of the  righteousness of His moral government.

 Although we may marvel at the  iniquities that men commit, at the fury of the "Commune" or the  depravity of "Bolshevism," although the utter evil of God's instruments  may astound us until with Habakkuk we are compelled to cry out to the  Just and Holy God, "Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and  canst not look on iniquity: wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal  treacherously, and holdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth the man  that is more righteous than he?" (Hab. 1:13); yet we must always  remember that He styles Nebuchadnezzar his servant and terms Assyria the rod of His anger. It is still with Him that we have to do.

 Ultimately, the only solution there can be to the problem of tyranny  is to solve the problem of how we can turn God's curse into blessing; how we can transmute His anger into favor. The question becomes one of how can we appease His anger and stay His wrath.What can  shield a man, or a people, or a nation from the curse of God? Ever  since the fall by the sin of one man, death and curse have been  universal. All have sinned and come short, there is none that doeth  good, no not one, and so by both original and actual sin all men and  all societies bring judgment and wrath down upon themselves. One of the  forms of this wrath is that God sends tyrants as He so clearly  warned in I Samuel 8. Men need a covering, an atonement, to shield them  from the wrath of God. They need a Daysman, a Mediator, to intercede on  their behalf with an offended and omnipotent Deity. In short, men  need the blessings of the Abrahamic Covenant. They need to be Justified  before God. And the Biblical, the Protestant, the Reformed answer to  this need is that men need to be justified by faith in Christ Jesus. But faith is inexorably linked in the divine economy with repentance  and the latter is again just as inescapably linked with reformation. The same golden chain that links election to effectual calling,  regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification also  links faith with good works, and the new nature with the fruits of  repentance. If we would have a covering from the wrath of God and  from His curse including the curse of tyrannical government, the road  leads inexorably to justification by faith, repentance, and reformation. And we come to the very same conclusion whether we examine the issue in its negative or in its positive aspects. Whether we are seeking to  avoid God's righteous curse or whether we are seeking to bring down His  blessing, including the blessings of peace, liberty, and just  government, either way the answer is reformation. For if I Samuel 8  teaches that the fruit of apostasy is tyranny and unjust, coercive  government, Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28:1-14 assert that God's  blessing will attend a faithful, covenant keeping people. In the Abrahamic Covenant, the covenantal blessing that God will be a God and a Father to us and our seed after us is linked with the covenantal  command to "walk before me and be thou perfect."
