In a segment dubbed “could it happen here”, Deutsch again played around with the idea that Trump was constructing Nazi Germany in our own backyards. “During last week's show two days after Trump's harrowing North Carolina rally, lowlighted by racial chants of ‘send her back’, we posed the question: Could it happen here? It’s nine days later and we're still asking the question,” he announced.
It looks like MSNBC has decided to embrace a full-out Nazi scare as its 2020 electoral strategy. Last week, appearing on Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show, Morning Joe regular Donny Deutsch said another Holocaust "could happen here," wondering "are Jews next?" The next day, on Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough described the recent Trump rally in North Carolina as a "Nuremberg" rally. This morning, after portions of a Financial Times column were read analogizing the situation in the US/UK to that of Germany in the early 1930s, Joe Scarborough and Eugene Robinson suggested that the time had come to "sound the alarm."
An old adage states: “If you’re in an argument with someone and you compare that person to Adolf Hitler, you just lost the debate.” Apparently, no one told CNN Tonight host Don Lemon about this idiom because he enthusiastically compared President Trump to the Nazi dictator on Tuesday evening in what Cuomo Prime Time anchor Chris Cuomo accurately described as a “very extreme example.”
Presidential contenders are in a battle to out give one another. Senator Elizabeth Warren proposes a whopping $50,000 per student college loan forgiveness. Senator Bernie Sanders proposes free health care for all Americans plus illegal aliens. Most Democratic presidential candidates promise free stuff that includes free college, universal income, "Medicare for All" and debt forgiveness.
On Thursday's Amanpour and Company on PBS, host Christiane Amanpour spent more than 20 minutes covering newly passed laws restricting abortion in a number of states, but only heard from the pro-abortion side as she spoke with liberal activist Gloria Steinem for almost 10 minutes, and then Planned Parenthood member, Dr. David Eisenberg, who performs abortions in Missouri.
While many liberal Democrats have responded harshly to President Trump’s proposal to move illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities, there is at least one notable exception in the controversy: Cherilyn Sarkisian, the singer and actress better known as “Cher.” In a Twitter post on Sunday, the liberal celebrity focused her attention on the situation in Los Angeles, where she claimed the city does not adequately provide for the 50,000 homeless people already there and is therefore not prepared to handle a large influx of illegal immigrants, a statement that the Republican occupant of the White House readily agreed with.
On Sunday's Up with David Gura on MSNBC, during a panel discussion of President Donald Trump criticizing U.S. immigration policy during a speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition, host Gura invited Lynn Sweet -- Washington bureau chief of the Chicago Sun-Times -- to complain about Jews who have responded favorably to Trump's rhetoric that was earlier in the segment likened to Nazi Germany.
When conservatives hear President Trump talk about conservatives "reclaiming our nation’s priceless heritage," they hear a reference to the Founders and to the founding documents. When CNN hears it, they hear Hitler and Putin. On Saturday afternoon, CNN anchor Ana Cabrera encouraged CNN analyst Samantha Vinograd -- a former Obama aide and current Biden Institute senior adviser -- to slime Trump with a Holocaust brush:
New York Times Berlin bureau chief Katrin Bennhold, a native of Germany, doesn’t seem in tune with her home country, calling the idea of putting a speed limit on the autobahn a “no-brainer,” one tragically scuttled by the “far right,” and maybe, somehow, Hitler. “Speed Limit? Germans Voting With Lead Feet,” on the front page of Monday’s New York Times. Adolf Hitler makes a cameo.
A recent Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation survey found that 51 percent of American millennials would rather live in a socialist or communist country than in a capitalist country. Only 42 percent prefer the latter. Twenty-five percent of millennials who know who Vladimir Lenin was view him favorably. Lenin was the first premier of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Half of millennials have never heard of Communist Mao Zedong, who ruled China from 1949 to 1959 and was responsible for the deaths of 45 million Chinese people.
Reacting Wednesday night to the bombs sent to CNN and other Democrats, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews offered a bizarre take that invoked how next Wednesday is Halloween, blamed the President without evidence for being responsible for the bombs, and insinuated that he was akin to Adolf Hitler in the 1930s.
Frequent CNN and MSNBC Republican guest Bruce Bartlett decided to go down quite the rabbit hole Tuesday afternoon, opining that Holocaust architect and Nazi leader Adolf Hitler was a better person than President Donald Trump because he served in the (German) military, was supposedly faithful to his wife (which was debatable), and wrote a book on his own.
