Why Is Everyone Freaking Out About Chris Matthews? The Left Calls People Nazis All the Time!

 

It gets done all the time: Comparisons to Hitler and Nazis from people who can’t figure out how to express their disagreement with others, so they resort to the lowest common denominator, gaining themselves a moment of moral superiority while denigrating and diminishing the attempted extermination of an entire people.

Presidential candidate Tom Steyer did it to President Donald Trump. Rep. Ocasio-Cortez has done it when talking about the border:

The #WalkAway movement and other similar discussions are opening minds about just who is today’s Left. Democrats are freaking out over potentially losing their most dependable voter base: the identity politics crowd. They will brand any such movement as perpetrated by Russian Bots or simply dismiss them all together.  Preview Open

David French of National Review and Chad Benson of Radio America fill in for Jim Geraghty and Greg Corombos. They hope that Congress may exert its constitutional authority by passing legislation to end the family separation policy, secure the border, and stop illegal immigration. They also fear the growing divide between conservatives and liberals as they each adopt more extreme policy positions. And they react to the insane comparisons between the U.S. border and Nazi concentration camps.

On his radio show yesterday, Rush Limbaugh mused that the current mania to purge all things from the Confederacy and the Founding is in fact a Mao-like Cultural Revolution staged by the American Left. He is correct. And on his radio show, consistently since soon after the inauguration, Mark Levin has insisted that the current […]

It’s nothing new, but it looks like Hollywood has a villain shortage coming. It’s happened before, when Hollywood thought they had a villain that everyone could agree on, and then they discover some of the audience will be angry by the choice of villain. There are numerous examples from history. Preview Open

On Slack today, @exjon observed, “Condemning Nazis is the easiest political move in history. It costs Trump nothing.” I disagreed. There are a lot of ordinary people who fear that “Nazi”, at least these days, is chiefly a stick that elitists use to beat the proles. This fear, as many Trump voters like to put is, […]

Dennis Prager: The Left has Intellectuals, But It’s Not Intellectual

 

Dennis PragerDennis Prager sits down with Dave at #Politicon to discuss Jews on the Left, free speech on the college campus, why it’s not enough to prevent conservatives from speaking; it is now necessary to prevent conservatives from appearing even when not speaking (the Left’s effort to not allow Dennis to make music in Los Angeles). We also discuss how Leftist intellectuals are in fact not intellectual and Dennis responds to the young ‘man’ who called him a “Nazi” right before our interview. Follow Dennis on Facebook, Twitter and PragerU for their must see videos (500 million viewers can’t be wrong!)

(This is another old post from my film blog that simply does not fit the interest of that blog anymore, it fits ricochet.com though, I wrote this right after he became President Elect because I was tired of all the shrieking over “Nazism”) I don’t really know. I doubt it. But the next time you […]

An Easy Layup in the Allegheny Forest, A Crash-Landing in Kecksburg December 9, 1965. Everything you read here is true. I was 12 years old. It was early evening. We were killing time in a game of 2-on-1 ’til dinner. Suddenly, I was looking at an easy layup and my friend’s Dad began shouting hysterically […]

May Day and the Third Reich

 

The always astute Daniel Greenfield (FrontPageMag.com) points to the New York Times article “When Communism Inspired Americans”:

But the New York Times will run “When Communism Inspired Americans”. It will run it because while Communism didn’t inspire Americans, it did inspire the left to try and turn America into a totalitarian state. It still does. This is the dirty little secret that leaks out of the left.

It is well known that dictatorial regimes employ religious symbolism to appropriate God to their secular causes. The National Socialists in Germany in the ’30s (i.e., the Nazis) were an outstanding example of this, endorsing “positive Christianity” and asserting that “God is with us” on propaganda posters. The Trump regime has now taken the next step on their road to ultimate power by sending the First Lady of the United States, whom many until now regarded as an innocent, simpleton concubine of the great leader, to lead a mass rally of sheep in the Lord’s Prayer as a preliminary to a Trump rally.

So it begins.

Ms. Trump’s choice of prayer, also known to Christians as the “Our Father,” was clearly a deliberate attempt to invoke the idea of the Fatherland. The prayer is filled with autocratic, monarchial imagery of a subservient people, thanking the leader for a crust of bread and begging for pardon from the king. Numerous observant SJWs noted that Melania Trump, dressed in bright red reminiscent of the Nazi flag, appeared to read the prayer, and that her middle European accent was comical when it wasn’t blood chilling. Some even suggested that her hair was more blonde than usual.

The new season of “Man in the High Castle” was released on Friday, and what a doozy it is. For those unfamiliar with the show, the conceit is that it’s 1962 in a world where the Axis powers won WWII and have occupied the United States. The titular Man is collecting films of other realities — some in […]

The disgraceful tweet by a Newsweek senior writer that flatly called Ted Cruz a Nazi has been well denounced here. Yet the writer in subsequent tweets seems unaware of how shamefully he has behaved. Turner Classic Movies recently showed the 1955 French documentary “Night and Fog,” about Auschwitz and all those related Nazi horrors. It […]
