Thread: Similarities between Nazis and Republicans

  1. #1

    Default Similarities between Nazis and Republicans

    This is likely to be a touchy subject but we just cannot ignore the similarities.

    Some of the things I see people post here in our little corner of the internet sound awfully familiar. The more we talk about the attempted insurrection/coup on Jan 6th, the more we learn about what motivates Trump supporters who are overwhelmingly republican, the more these similarities stand out.

    I'm not trying to say Republicans want to throw Jews in camps and mass murder them. Not at all.

    But I am looking at the things I see posted here, what I hear from Republican politicians, and the garbage being spread by the QAnon crowd and I have to stop and say WTF.

    Thoughts?


    Nazis Republicans
    Thought Jews were destroying nations with immigrants to usher in global government.Anti globalization, anti immigrant.
    Thought Jews used minorities for their purposes.Republicans claim democrats use minorities for their votes to stay in power.
    Blamed Jews in entertainment and media for controlling people.Rejects mass media. Hates Hollywood.
    Thought liberalism would destroy the state.Rejects liberalism.

    When you're anti-Semitic and you don't even know it, clap your hands.

    If there's one thing the democrat party is fantastic at, it's projection.

    Aside from that, I'm not even gonna bother wasting time telling you about why you're as stupid as you are. Though I am curious where you pulled this from, because you haven't had a thought of your own on here since December of 2002.

    Still dumb as hell either way. I like how they always leave out the "illegal" part of "illegal immigrants" and just paint it as "anti-immigrant," as an example of said full of shitness.

    Its really been in front of our faces for a long time. I created the table but was inspired by this link that talks about the video people were shown at the Trump rally before they broke into and ransacked the US Capitol on Jan 6th.

    Movie at the Ellipse: A Study in Fascist Propaganda
    Scholars on the Nazis and anti-Semitism have seen this before


    by Jason Stanley
    February 4, 2021

    On January 6, Trump supporters gathered at a rally at Washington DC’s Ellipse Park, regaled by various figures from Trump world, including Donald Trump Jr. and Rudy Giuliani. Directly following Giuliani’s speech, the organizers played a video. To a scholar of fascist propaganda, well-versed in the history of the National Socialist’s pioneering use of videos in political propaganda, it was clear, watching it, what dangers it portended. In it, we see themes and tactics that history warns pose a violent threat to liberal democracy. Given the aims of fascist propaganda – to incite and mobilize – the events that followed were predictable.
    The whole piece goes into detail about the similarities with the tactics Hitler used to gain power and Trump's ascension along with QAnon conspiracies.

    When you can't be bothered to lay out a counter-argument and you're forced to resort to your fallback strategy and you know it, clap your hands. Good luck rationalizing how pointing out the right's antisemitism is, itself, antisemitism though.

    Sorry, this form of right-wing apologia stopped being valid due to -- you guessed it -- the Mango Mussolini. Trump did virtually nothing effective to stop illegal immigration, but did everything he could to stop legal immigration. Y'know, the kind that you're sitting here pretending that the GOP doesn't oppose?

    Here's a right-wing source telling you so. https://www.cato.org/blog/president-...al-immigration

    Try to shit out a better argument next time.

    There's only one party in the US that pushes for the extermination of 130,000 black Americans every year, rioted in the streets, murdered cops, burnt private property to the ground, harassed/assaulted people and presented legislation to end our form of government. That's the democrat party.
