(NaturalNews) Adolph Hitler's rise to power in Germany and corresponding efforts to ethnically cleanse not only his own country but the entire world of those he deemed as "undesirables" is generally recognized as one of the most horrific mass genocides in history. But according to some historians, Hitler's maniacal playbook to create what he believed would be a perfect and superior race was largely derived from American eugenicists who were pushing their own ethnic cleansing agendas long before Hitler was even born.

As it turns out, there is evidence that as far back as the early 1700s, eugenicists in America were busy devising schemes to quietly eliminate from society those they considered to be inferior. The foundations for so-called "degeneracy theory," which purports that races of civilized people could degenerate into more primitive forms if they engaged in certain behaviors or possessed certain inherent traits, were initially laid back in the 18th century. And over time, adherents of this theory used it as an excuse to reclassify groups of people as subordinate.

"In practice, Eugenicists' first order of business in the late 18th and early 19th century was to identify society's 'degenerates,'" explains Tiffany Gabbay in a recent piece on the history of eugenics in America for TheBlaze.com. "Those deemed undesirable ranged from the mentally ill, handicapped, and the physically disabled (this included the blind and deaf), to the poor and uneducated, promiscuous women, homosexuals and certain racial groups -- particularly Jews and blacks."

Forced sterilization, racial dividing, and ethnic cleansing were all taking place in America long before Nazi Germany

In 1907, more than a decade before Hitler began his ascent to power in Germany, the U.S. had already enacted its first eugenics sterilization law. According to historical accounts, then-Indiana Governor J. Frank Hanly approved a law mandating sterilization of certain individuals in state custody, building on systems of thought already covertly established in the late 1800s that alleged traits like criminality, mental problems, and even being poor were hereditary.

This law, of course, set the precedent for forced sterilization mandates included in Hitler's Mein Kampf, the infamous autobiographical outline of the fuhrer's deranged political philosophies. Though American eugenicists never achieved the same level of mass carnage and destruction as Hitler, their philosophies were largely the same, and had the same endgame in mind -- to engineer a "purified" human race that was free of the "burdens," the "degenerates," and the "second-class."

"Throughout their crusade, the Nazis showed neither remorse nor mercy, and always presented their ethnic cleansing, just as the Americans had done before them, as a means for good," writes Gabbay. "By ridding Germans of the societal, financial and, ultimately, genetic burden of the 'undesirable,' and by ridding the undesirables of their 'miserable' existence, the Germans maintained that theirs was actually an act of virtue."

Modern-day eugenics is still taking place today

Though many would prefer to deny its existence, eugenics is still alive and well in America today. Planned Parenthood, for example, was the birth child of eugenicists who have always intended to use it as a way to kill off undesirables, and it is largely used for that purpose today. Genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), fluoridated water, vaccines, and many pharmaceutical drugs are examples of modern-day eugenics as well, as each of these unnatural mechanisms has the capacity to slowly poison, sterilize, and eventually kill off populations.

"In (the) west, the slow kill method has been implemented," explains The Globalist Agenda about modern-day eugenics programs in Western nations. "This includes vaccines containing mercury and Simian 40 cancer viruses; fluoride in water supplies as used by Hitler and Stalin in their concentration camps; the introduction of the excitotoxin aspartame into the food supply; the presence of xeno-estrogen / bisphenol in plastics; (and) the introduction of GMO crops and their well understood destructive side effects."
