The symbol of Germany democracy, burned down in the thirties. A dutch communist in the building that night was executed for the burning down, but it was beneficial to the new nazi government in permanent postponement of democracy.
It is unclear who burned down the reichstag; The nazis; Communist parties; Van der Lubbe?

Get the Reichstag mug.
The capitol of the German Parliament before and during World War II. It was burned by Adolf Hitler as he took over Germany and instituted the Third Reich into the center of the power structure. Soviet forces captured it in 1945 during the fall of Berlin, shortly before the Nazi surrender. It has since been replaced with the post-Nazi German Parliament, the Bundesrath.
Alexei was part of the Soviet force that took the Reichstag from the Nazis.

Get the Reichstag mug.
The original German Parliament, but now also used as a byword for 'awesome' or something of 'epic proportions'. Simliar to modern use of the word 'krieg' (german for war) within the metal community.
"Slayer ist reichstag"

person 1: Dude have you hear about Varg trying to skip out on his parole?

person 2: yeah, dude, even in prison, he's pure fucking reichstag!

The Reichstag was the capital of the German Parliament during WWII. A dutch communist was in the building that night, and was executed for the crime. Although many thought the Germans themselves did it, to the contrary, it was the dutchman. However, it was beneficial to the new Nazi government under Chancellor Hitler in permanent postponement of democracy. This event is comparable to 9/11, it provoked fear, exacerbated by the government, which is slowly resulting in the halt of democracy and the establishment of a dictatorship.
Reichstag is to Adolf Hitler as September 11th is to George W. Bush.

Get the reichstag mug.
Taken from the Reichstag (see Wiki) fire in Germany before World War II which blamed the Polish for burning a German parliament building, however it was a 'false flag' (again, see wiki) operation, covert and conducted by ones own government to be blamed on one or more foreigners to drum up support to declare war against supposed foreign perpetrator(s).
person 1: Did you see this video on YouTube?

person 2: yeah, man. Clearly illustrates how 9/11 was a reichstag. See all the small blasts blowing out lower windows? They're from charges firing to cut support beams so the entire skyscraper will collapse upon itself onto it's own footprint. It's easy to see but some people deny all evidence and think the US government can do no wrong.

Any of the flawed, fraudulent “national emergencies” promoted by the President in order to con his deluded base.
The border national emergency is a Reichstag Fyre Festival for mouthbreathing Trump supporters on Twitter. Except for Ann Coulter. Because even she’s not that stupid.
