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.
Joe Scarborough thought he was being so cute. No fewer than six times during his little spiel this on today's Morning Joe, while reading from the US government's WWII psychological profile of Adolf Hitler, Scarborough stressed that he was not intending to refer to anyone else. Joe never uttered the President's name, but coming from this world-class Trump hater, there was no doubt what parallel he wanted viewers to draw.
On Friday's CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon hyped a Washington Post op ed by liberal author Patti Davis -- the daughter of former President Ronald Reagan -- and gave her a forum to compare the Trump administration to Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany. Not mentioned by the CNN host is that it is hardly surprising that Davis would be critical of a right-leaning President since she has a long history of being a liberal activist who was critical of her parents.
They’ve called him a racist, a cult leader, and a foreign agent, but now they’re going the full “Hitler.” After just recently digging up some “professionals” willing to claim that the Trump movement is aimed at taking down democracy, Salon writer Chauncey Devega found a history professor with even less professional self-respect.
WASHINGTON — It has been a pretty good week for Donald Trump. The economy is growing faster than anyone on the left or in the middle or among the Never-Trumpers believed possible. Inflation is low, and employment is at a record high. Moreover, the president and the European Union reached an understanding on trade last week that signals the likely end of a trade war, at least with Europe.
On Monday's Deadline: White House, MSNBC contributor Steve Schmidt railed against President Donald Trump and his supporters as the former Republican-turned-Democrat complained that the Trump "faction" is "trying to impose systematic cruelty upon all the rest of us," and even threw in a Hitler reference as he invoked "Munich circa 1928." Even though the former John McCain campaign strategist last week announced via Twitter that "I renounce my membership in the Republican Party" and pledged to vote for Democrats in the future, he was still credited on screen as a "Republican strategist."
On Sunday's AM Joy, MSNBC host Joy Reid served up a double helping of "Meathead" as liberal film maker Rob Reiner and his wife, Michele Reiner, spent a segment ranting against President Donald Trump and his "hardcore racist" supporters. Michele Reiner invoked Nazi death camps as she called Trump "evil" and likened him to Adolf Hitler. Rob Reiner repeatedly accused Trump supporters of being "racists" if they agree that immigrants who cross the border illegally should be prosecuted, resulting in some being separated from their children during detention as required by law.
On Tuesday's The 11th Hour show on MSNBC, during a discussion of President Donald Trump's dispute with the NFL and the Philadelphia Eagles, Brian Williams dropped a Hitler comparison as he likened the NFL caving to Trump on the National Anthem protests to Joseph P. Kennedy trying to appease Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. And race-obsessed MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson declared that Trump is angry at the Eagles because he is against blacks and whites working together.
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell was on fire ripping Republican Senator Jeff Flake (Ariz.) during Monday afternoon’s Cavuto: Coast to Coast, telling FBN host Neil Cavuto that Flake is an “intellectual fraud” “who is working overtime to curry favor with” the liberal media. Bozell’s comments were directed at Flake in reaction to an upcoming speech in which Flake will compare President Trump to the evil, murderous, and communist Soviet leader Joseph Stalin.
Before the question, how about a few statistics? The 20th century was mankind's most brutal century. Roughly 16 million people lost their lives during World War I; about 60 million died during World War II. Wars during the 20th century cost an estimated 71 million to 116 million lives. The number of war dead pales in comparison with the number of people who lost their lives at the hands of their own governments.
