Fedstapo (federal government + Gestapo)

Nazi Germany’s Gestapo was its official secret police; the term “Gestapo” has later been used to describe forceful, authoritarian tactics. “Fedstapo” (federal government + Gestapo) has been cited in print since at least 1977 to describe the federal government (or a particular agency) that uses such Gestapo-like authoritarian tactics.


Wikipedia: Gestapo
The Gestapo (German pronunciation: [ɡeˈstaːpo, ɡəˈʃtaːpo]; abbreviation of Geheime Staatspolizei, “Secret State Police") was the official secret police of Nazi Germany and German-occupied Europe. Hermann Göring formed the unit in 1933. Beginning on 20 April 1934, it was under the administration of SS national leader, Heinrich Himmler who in 1936 was appointed Chief of German Police (Chef der Deutschen Polizei) by Hitler. In 1936, Himmler made it a suboffice of the Sicherheitspolizei (SiPo) ("Security Police"). Then from 27 September 1939 forward, it was administered by the Reichssicherheitshauptamt (RSHA) ("Reich Main Security Office") and was considered a sister organization of the Sicherheitsdienst (SD) ("Security Service"). According to historian Rupert Butler, “From its creation in 1933 until its death in May 1945, anyone living in Nazi controlled territory lived in fear of a visit from the Gestapo...”.

1 May 1977, Washington (DC) Star, “Pros, Cons in Laetrile Debate,” pg. A-8, col. 3:
Pro: The decision to use Laetrile should be made between the patient and his doctor, without the intrusion of the meddlesome bureaucrats (variously called “Big Brother,” “Fedstapo” or “legal murderers.” depending on the degree of zeal).

17 May 1977, Washington (DC) Star, “Laetrile Producers Raided By U.S. in ‘Biggest’ Move” by Cristine Russell, pg. A-2, col. 3:
The FDA’s action is likely to become another rallying cause for pro-Laetrile forces who have decried earlier attempts to clamp down on apricot kernels, often referring to the FDA as the “Fedstapo.”

“Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards.” ― Aldous Huxley, Ends and Means If 2014 was the year of militarized police, armored tanks, and stop-and-frisk searches, 2015 may well be the year of technologized police, surveillance blimps and scan-and-frisk searches. Just as we witnessed neighborhood cops being transformed into soldier cops, we’re about to see them shapeshift once again, this time into robocops, complete with robotic exoskeletons, super-vision contact lenses, computer-linked visors, and mind-reading helmets. Similarly, just as military equipment created for the battlefield has been deployed on American soil against American citizens, we’re … Continue reading →
