Yes, Virginia, There ARE American Nazis

Item One: A PBS feature on “Tar Heel family illustrates why Trump appeals to the South”

“First time voter” and Trump volunteer Grace Tilly was finally getting the candidate she loves. She sports tattoos “88” (code for “HH”, Heil Hitler) and the Celtic cross used by Nazi site Stormfront as a logo. Her Trump supporting husband Ferron is wanted for armed robbery. Farron Tilly’s YouTube channel shows up when using his username, farron666. It includes videos for “Nature’s Eternal Religion” under the playlist “WhitePrideIsAllRight.” Dad shrugs these details aside. Pete “Kids These Days” Tilly has a “Veterans for Trump founder” patch on his jacket.

Item Two: A New York Times article titled, “A Voice of Hate in America’s Heartland”

He is the Nazi sympathizer next door, polite and low-key at a time the old boundaries of accepted political activity can seem alarmingly in flux. Most Americans would be disgusted and baffled by his casually approving remarks about Hitler, disdain for democracy and belief that the races are better off separate... On Facebook, Mr. Hovater posted a picture purporting to show what life would have looked like if Germany had won World War II: a streetscape full of happy white people, a bustling American-style diner and swastikas everywhere. “What part is supposed to look unappealing?” he wrote... After he attended the Charlottesville rally, in which a white nationalist plowed his car into a group of left-wing protesters, killing one of them, Mr. Hovater wrote that he was proud of the comrades who joined him there: “We made history. Hail victory.” In German, “Hail victory” is “Sieg heil.”

Yes, Virginia, there are American Nazis. And they LOVE their Dear Orange Fuhrer. And they are all conservative. They hate liberals almost as much as they hate minorities.

 And every one of them will tell you to your face they are “not racist” and a “Christian”.

In other Fascists-for-Trump news, we have the slimy liars at the deceptively named “Project Veritas”, working to undermine the Washington Post’s accounts of Roy Moore’s victims. What kind of vermin lie to support a child molester? Con-servatives without a conscience. Posing as a pimp to smear ACORN, James O'Keefe became a famous propagandist for the extreme Right. He is a liar and a criminal, "just doing his job".

Item Three: A Washington Post story titled: “A woman approached The Post with dramatic — and false — tale about Roy Moore. She appears to be part of undercover sting operation.”

A woman who falsely claimed to The Washington Post that Roy Moore, the Republican U.S. Senate candidate in Alabama, impregnated her as a teenager appears to work with an organization that uses deceptive tactics to secretly record conversations in an effort to embarrass its targets.

In a series of interviews over two weeks, the woman shared a dramatic story about an alleged sexual relationship with Moore in 1992 that led to an abortion when she was 15. During the interviews, she repeatedly pressed Post reporters to give their opinions on the effects that her claims could have on Moore’s candidacy if she went public.

The Post did not publish an article based on her unsubstantiated account. When Post reporters confronted her with inconsistencies in her story and an Internet posting that raised doubts about her motivations, she insisted that she was not working with any organization that targets journalists.

But on Monday morning, Post reporters saw her walking into the New York offices of Project Veritas, an organization that targets the mainstream news media and left-leaning groups. The organization sets up undercover “stings” that involve using false cover stories and covert video recordings meant to expose what the group says is media bias.

James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas who was convicted of a misdemeanor in 2010 for using a fake identity to enter a federal building during a previous sting, declined to answer questions about the woman outside the Project Veritas office, a storefront in Mamaroneck, N.Y., on Monday morning shortly after the woman walked inside.

...The group’s efforts illustrate the lengths to which activists have gone to try to discredit media outlets for reporting on allegations from multiple women that Moore pursued them when they were teenagers and he was in his early 30s.

...Gateway Pundit, a conservative site, spread a false story from a Twitter account, @umpire43, that said, “A family friend in Alabama just told my wife that a WAPO reporter named Beth offer her 1000$ to accuse Roy Moore.” The Twitter account, which has a history of spreading misinformation, has since been deleted.

The Post, like many other news organizations, has a strict policy against paying people for information and did not do so in its coverage of Moore.

This is their war on truth and journalism. The German Nazis used the term "Lügenpresse", or lying press, in their campaign to destroy journalism. Now American fascists cry "liberal media" and "fake news" when the truth threatens their agenda.

These are the devoted authoritarian fanatics of the fascist Right that have risen to frightening levels of influence in their war on democracy,a free press, education, unions and minorities.

Keep trusting FOX(R) and hate radio, folks. Be "Good Amerikaners" and read Bretibart and Gateway Pundit. And keep believing Dear Leader Kim Jong Don. Never mind the reeking rotting borscht.

Keep voting for Republicans. THEY are the Party of Trump. 

 Just remember, these are the fascists who are voting alongside you. And never forget; Hitler made Germany great again.

I wonder whether Trump is our own American-made "Hitler", or will it actually be the next guy?

I think the answer lies in a question. What would Trump do if he had the dictatorial power Hitler had? There are a million "Little Hitlers" living inside the empty soul of the American Right. There is always another Hitler. He didn't break the mold.

Don't yet rejoice in his defeat, you men!
Although the world stood up and stopped the bastard,
The bitch that bore him is in heat again.”

― Bertolt Brecht

The bitch of racist fascism has spawned unchecked in the cold dark heart of Trumpism and con-servatism. Our courts and Constitution are our final defense. If they fail, it is over. Apart from the 2nd Amendment, the Constitution is meaningless to the far Right. Basic human decency is dead. Roy Moore will win, despite his criminal sex offenses and conviction for acts against our Constitution.

The bitch is always in heat, and always breeding.
