"We are in an epic struggle to rescue our country from the people who hated it, and want to absolutely destroy it."
Trump or Hitler? What's the difference?
Not every Republican is a fascist. Some may even have a
modicum of conscience, but it’s never their primary concern, as they primarily coddle
the rich and deprive the sick and poor. (And they think they’re being
The Republican Party isn’t the American Nazi Party. Not
yet. But they are being taken over by the same fascist fringe ideology that
spawned Hitler’s regime.
Some people are annoyed
by any comparisons I’ve made. “But Republicans aren’t putting people in
camps”, I’m told.
This is correct. But that’s not where German Nazis
started in their path to power, either. It was from the same roots of racism,
lies, extreme nationalism and will to dominate.
Only Republicans fly the Confederate Flag. That alone should tell the story.
History has supplied ample evidence of what fascism is
all about. Banning books, demonizing and scapegoating minorities and educators,
boasting of their superiority, and endless lies and hatred are all elements of
a toxic authoritarian political cult.
They would dictate what can be taught in schools. They
would demand purges in academia for those who do not conform to their ideology.
They would frame their racism to fit their twisted definitions
of terms. Every time Republicans invoke “CRT” and “woke” they barely conceal
their racism, an essential foundation of historical and current Nazi ideology.
And Nazis of the past and present will ALWAYS falsely
accuse their opposition of being “Marxists” and “Communists” who “hate” their
In reality the hate is their projection.
Their goal is one-party rule, and inflicting as much
suffering as possible on anyone who stands in their way.
Radical Right neo-Nazis and white supremacists now see
all pro-democracy advocates as "Marxists". Who else did that? Adolf
Hitler. And like Hitler’s Nazis, they feel the same false sense of victimization. In fact; too many white nationalist bigots believe THEY are the "real
victims" of racism. "More than half of Republicans think minorities
are favored over Whites in the United States".
Hate, vengeance and white identity grievance have infected today’s Republican Party to frightening levels.
Another fair comparison is the fact Trump and Hitler both
incited a Putsch to seize power. Trump even praised his thugs for their
violence, saying, “You’re very special. We love you”. That day alone should
cement his evil into the historical annals of fascism.
One more direct comparison between Nazis and Republicans
is this: On October 10, 1936 Heinrich Himmler created the Reich Central Office
for Combating Homosexuality and Abortion. In this assault on freedom and
equality there is no distinction between them.
We see this fanaticism growing like a tumor in the Trump
Cult, the US Congress, and in the states controlled by Republicans.
The catalog of radical Right extremism has become too
vast to document here, so I’ll just focus on a few more examples of their
fascistic war on democracy, truth and decency.
In one raging neo-Nazi diatribe Marjorie Taylor Greene
called Ilhan Omar, Maxine Waters, Ayanna Pressley, Adam Schiff, Joe Biden,
Rashida Tlaib, Nancy Pelosi, AOC, and Elizabeth Warren, “Communist Democrats
who hate America, hate God, and hate our way of life.”
This enemy of truth decency and democracy howled, “You
can’t allow it, to just transfer power ‘peacefully’ like Joe Biden wants.”
“We need to be the party of nationalism and I’m a
Christian, and I say it proudly, we should be Christian nationalists.”
Ranting further about her failed coup on January 6, 2021,
MTG boasted, "I want to tell you something, if Steve Bannon and I had
organized that, we would have won. Not to mention, we would've been
And of course what neo-Nazi would be worth their swastika
if they didn’t project the evil darkness within their authoritarian amygdala?
"I am not going to mince words with you all. Democrats want Republicans
dead and they have already started the killings."
This insanity is from the newly empowered and profoundly
nasty QAnon Queen of Congress. There’s so much more, but let’s move on to
examples from the most extreme state of the Union.
A Florida Republican state senator proposed a bill that
would require bloggers who write about DeSantis, his Cabinet officers, or
members of the legislature, to register with the state.
Another authoritarian Florida fascist proposed outlawing
the Democratic Party.
Per Orlando’s Spectrum News 13:
A new proposed bill could pave the way for the official
removal of the Democratic Party from official voting information if passed in
this year’s legislative session in Tallahassee. The bill, currently titled SB
1248, calls for the state Division of Elections to cancel the “filings” of a
political party, to include party registration and approved status in any and
all elections if that party’s platform had previously advocated for slavery, or
Although not explicitly listed, the Democratic Party,
which was popular in the nation’s South during Reconstruction, would fit the description. Economics
and civil rights fueled significant changes in both parties in the years since.
The bill includes language that would require any voter currently registered as
a member of a canceled party to be notified by that political party to update
their voter registration to an approved and active political party.
The bill was filed by Florida state Senator Blaise
Finally I present the latest neo-Nazi bile from the man
the Republican Party cannot stop from running for president again.
"This Animal Prosecutor that they stuck on me over
the Boxes Hoax is trying to TORTURE my people into telling lies. It’s all for
political reasons, and the fact I’m leading big, in all the polls. He’s flying
people from all over and throwing them in front of a D.C. Grand Jury. They are
confused and scared – they’ve never done this before. These Democrat Marxist
Pigs should be the ones that are investigated. The nice guy prosecutor in the
Biden documents case hasn’t even started yet!"
Along with the perversion of justice, the victim card, the commie card, and the projection card
are all there, lifted directly from Hitler's playbook.
If not for our fragile Constitution and weakened
democratic institution of fair elections and representation that allow us to
vote them out, these monsters would be even more destructive. How can anyone
doubt what horrible violence and bloodshed they would inflict if they thought
they could get away with it?
Past warnings are forgotten at our own peril.
