According to Goering:
"My measures will not be crippled by any bureaucracy. I won't have to worry about justice, my mission is only to destroy and exterminate. This struggle will be a struggle against chaos, and I shall not conduct it with police power. A bourgeois state might have done that.
Certainly I shall use the power of the state and the police to the utmost, my dear Communists, so don't draw any false conclusions; but I shall lead the Brownshirts in this struggle to the death and my claws will grasp your necks."
The immediate target of Goering's words are the communists, currently blamed for the Reichstag Fire. In the long run, however, these words will apply to every group which the Nazis wish to eliminate from Germany society.
