Early Tuesday night, Daily Caller media reporter Justin Caruso flagged some Grade A insanity on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House as Clinton-era Deputy Assistant Attorney General Harry Litman compared criticism of the Trump-Russia probe and calls for oversight to the Nazis bombing campaign on London in World War II (known as The Blitz).
On the same day a front-page Washington Post article chronicled the nationwide collapse of the Alt Right, Telemundo played up a deceptive and dishonest report about a minuscule march of National Socialists in Newnan, Georgia. The report by the Spanish-language sister network of NBC deliberately neglected to reveal just how small the group of Neo Nazis were (The New York Times reported two dozen) as well as the fact that all six arrests made were of masked Antifa counter-protesters.
On Wednesday morning, MSNBC anchors Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi both on separate occasions highlighted a Nazi and perennial congressional candidate in Illinois who won the Republican nomination by default because no other candidates filed to run in the heavily Democratic district. Ruhle did not mention that Republicans have condemned his most recent congressional run -- only noting that they have done so in the past -- as she hinted that the GOP had "decided" this time not to run a candidate against him and that they were essentially "Yup, that's our guy."
On Monday afternoon, CNN political commentator and liberal Republican Ana Navarro ghoulishly paraphrased a quote by World War II-era pastor Martin Niemöller to equate embattled current and former Justice Department officials to those murdered by Adolf Hitler and the Nazis (aka President Trump) during the Holocaust.
A young African American resident learns a necessary lesson in the November 20 episode of ABC’s The Good Doctor. She learns she must treat even the most difficult of patients because it is her job. Meanwhile, ABC wants you to learn the benefits of affirmative action through the evils of Nazism.
On Friday's Real Time on HBO, far-left host Bill Maher -- well known for his anti-religion views -- tried to make an argument that communism is a "religion" when conservative guest Erick Erickson made an obvious point that communism was an ideology founded and run by atheists that led to war and to the mass murder of millions. Maher shot back: "That's a dumb canard. ... Communism was the religion, and the leader, Stalin, was the god." Several years ago, Maher similarly stretched to make an argument that Nazism and communism were state religions when conservative guest S.E. Cupp recalled that Adolf Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao Zedong, and Josef Stalin were atheists.
On Monday’s Wolf, Sentinel Newspapers executive editor and CNN political analyst Brian Karem declared in the wake of President Trump’s Twitter spat with Republican Senator Bob Corker (Tenn.) that the President’s support has dwindled to the point that he’s “embrace[d] a base that includes David Duke and white supremacists and the Nazi party.”
It seems as if Hollywood can’t get enough of comparing our president to a certain German 20th century dictator. Liberal director Ron Howard added his contribution Tuesday, revealing to the Daily Beast that Trump inspired a Nazi character in his new television series about Albert Einstein called “Genius.”
There are no words to describe how infuriating it is to hear details about the alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl by an 18-year-old illegal immigrant at a high school in Montgomery County, Maryland. The illegal alien (named Henry Sanchez) denied any sexual contact, but there is no denying that the sanctuary city policy where the school is based has become a huge problem.
Appearing as a guest on Tuesday’s Hardball, MSNBC political analyst and USA Today senior political reporter Heidi Przybyla brazenly argued that anti-Semitism is becoming “mainstream” on the right after having been only a “fringe, alt-right, white nationalist movement.”
Liberal comedienne Sarah Silverman has never been a fan of conservatives and has often said so in a long string of online tweets. However, she took her obsession to the next level on Sunday, when she posted: “Walking to get coffee saw these all over a sidewalk in the town I'm in. Is this an attempt at swastikas? Do neo-nazis not have Google?”
However, those “swastikas” were actually fairly standard markers used by utility workers. According to a construction worker who responded on the Twitter website, the curvy orange “X” symbols note the locations of underground pipes, wires and other potential obstacles to a variety of projects.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was a living, breathing edition of Notable Quotables on Inauguration Day, offering takes ranging from joking about Mussolini and former President George W. Bush hugging Supreme Court justices to this now-infamous quip that President Trump’s speech was “Hitlerian.”
