The Guardian is back in the Nazi trough

The way they accuse everyone of being a Nazi, should we start wondering if they're protesting too much?

...and endorse the antisemitic idea that the Jewish financier George Soros is responsible for political opposition.

Calling Soros on his support of insurrection and division isn't anti-Semitic. It's his beliefs not his ethnicity that is the issue.

Perhaps these hypocrites would find more totalitarians in a nearby mirror...

I find the left’s unceasing efforts to force everyone to embrace and celebrate the deviant and unamerican behaviors they promote more facist than anything else Ican think of.The nazis forced those who resisted their religion of facsism to unwilllingly participate through economic oppression,a corrupt judicial system and political oppression and suppression.........Or exterminated them .That looks a lot like the lefts final destination in America today.

I hate it when people compare

I hate it when people compare Orange Jesus to Hitler.

Hitler served honorably in his country’s military and only had one wife.

The left today is more

The left today is more fascist than any of the 1930's lunatics. Only Communism under Stalin, with its militant suppression of all religion compares.

And per the Alinsky handbook, the way to cover that up is to accuse everyone else of being fascists. Thus, ripping all conservatives out of all online media is just fine... but banning one leftie from a Facebook feed is censorship and fascism!

Remember, it's all for your own good... which is what makes all these lies and intolerance ok.

Shut up, Matt.

Shut up, Matt.

As usual, has nothing but pejoratives.

Apparently no adequate rebuttal was possible.

Nothing to “rebut.” The post shows signs of senility. Or simply true stupidity.

Dood - Do ya know that Hilter

Mattsky - I'm assuming you know that Hilter and the Nazi party rose to power in 1930, and are just continuing with the "poop-flinging". The Rise of Adolf Hitler

I know there's poop being flung by "both sides", but I'd like to see some more thoughtful posts from you.

To be precise, the major

To be precise, the major fascists and communists rose between 1918 and 1939.

Mussolini became prime minister in Italy in 1922, and slowly changed laws until he achieved total power around 1928.

“If relativism signifies contempt for fixed categories and those who claim to be the bearers of objective immortal truth, then there is nothing more relativistic than Fascist attitudes and activity. From the fact that all ideologies are of equal value, we Fascists conclude that we have the right to create our own ideology and to enforce it with all the energy of which we are capable.” ― Benito Mussolini

Hitler didn't become German chancellor until 1933, and took 2 years to consolidate power. Despite his being labeled right-wing by many academics and media wonks and left-wing by many others, the NSDAP was primarily nationalistic and concerned with socialism only as a means to an end - weakening the power of business and banking interests, where the influence of international (read: jewish) interests were strongest. The Nazis were left of center, but to them this was purely secondary.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Socialist_Program

Franco, the only actual conservative in the bunch, became dictator of Spain via the civil war from 1936-39. he was the only one of the fascists to be supported by religion - the Spanish Catholic church.

And if I didn't include a link, I'd be criticized for that too. The trolls always want it both ways.

I've studied history intensely over the years, since I consider it the only way to understand the present.

Most people know little or nothing about the past, and as a result are easy to manipulate with deceptive revisionist accounts of history created by those with an agenda.

Speaking of resources on the internet, here's a timely link.

" this crowd"

" this crowd"

I suppose "this crowd" is the same as "you people." Which, presumably, shares the same "hivemind."

It's easy to make grandiose put-downs when one doesn't care to be specific.

That guide is a bit timely,

That guide is a bit timely, for precisely the reason I cited: historical ignorance.

On the other hand, the Internet is now so full of spurious allusions to Nazi ideology that the term is in danger of losing all meaning. On social media, especially, “Nazi” has become a sort of four-letter synonym for “alt-right,” which itself now fills in lazily for “conservative” or “right-wing.” So even a politician or pundit who is mildly right-of-centre is in danger of being libelled as a “Nazi” by people who couldn’t find Germany on a map or name a single major Second World War battle.

The unusually rich collection of photos, newsreels, books, ideas, personalities and quotations that emerged from the Nazis period is such that anyone seeking to attack his or her enemies by cherry picking history can usually find some stray image or set of words from the Nazi historical record that aligns, in some way, with the object of attack.

Indeed, there is a perverse incentive for modern activists to imagine that we inhabit an age in which Nazis are powerful and ascendant—because this conceit gives moral grandeur to their own activism: It allows them to position themselves as moral heirs to the French Resistance, the martyrs of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, and the Allied armies that defeated the Nazi menace.

Udall, when you fill out an absentee ballot at the home, do the aides hold your hand steady so you can color in the correct ovals? Or do they just use the ballot as a bib, and you end up voting for whomever your Salisbury steak gravy spills on?
