Trump Goes Where No President Has Gone Before, Legitimizing a Grisly Dictator

Donald Trump and his Fox News acolytes are describing the president’s summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un as an historic event achieved by no other recent president. But his biggest accomplishment was legitimizing a grisly dictator with a duplicitous history and long string of human rights violations. No other president sought to dignify Kim, or any of his previous family-member leaders, because they realized it would represent a de-facto acceptance of his brutal regime....

Donald Trump Has Driven the Country to a Dark Precipice of Hysteria and Fear

Donald Trump has pushed the country to a dark precipice of hysteria and fear. The national mood is unparalleled since the 17th century Salem witch trials and the Red Scare of the 1950s, two of the darkest periods in U.S. history. Motivated by greed and political gain of the monied few, his administration and Republicans in Congress are engaged in an unprecedented assault on institutions that safeguard the civil rights and liberties of all citizens....

NY Times ‘Joe Nazi’ Story Unleashes Torrent of Scorn Over Reporting

The New York Times says it assigned one of its “smartest thinkers and best writers” to profile a white supremacist who participated in the Charlottesville riot and came away with a story that was neither smart nor well written, touching off a torrent of criticism over the reporting. The profile of Ohio couple Tony Hovater and Maria Hovater, had the same impact as old Nazi photos showing concentration camp guards enjoying a day off from their grim work....

Taylor Swift Revolted by Alt-Right Embrace; Calls Out Her Lawyers

Taylor Swift is being embraced by the Alt-Right, but the singer is revolted by the neo-Nazi frat boys, who apparently see her as as some kind of Aryan ideal. She’s calling out her lawyers to send a strong message–back off. Oddly, the issue boiled over after PopFront, a small California pop-culture Web site, made the connection in a strongly worded article....
Anti-Fascist WW II Message Suddenly Relevant in Age of Trump (see!) 10

Anti-Fascist WW II Message Suddenly Relevant in Age of Trump (see!)

Donald Trump has been compared to Hitler in more ways than one, but nothing makes the point better than a 1943 film produced during World War II that warns against the dangers of being “suckered” by Fascism, race-hatred and bigotry. The film, titled. “Don’t Be A Sucker,” was produced by the United States Department of War during World War II. ...

Sean Spicer a Lost Ball in High Grass; Makes Horrific Hitler Gaff (watch!)

Sean Spicer was a lost ball in TrumpSpeak high grass today, after making a horrendous gaff during a news briefing. He claimed Hitler never used chemical weapons during World War II. But it only got worse from there. Spicer and colleague Kellyanne Conway have tripped more than once over the facts trying to make sense out of President Trump’s more outlandish actions and comments....
Trump Minority Support in 2016 Much Like Hitler Jewish Support in 1932 14

Trump Minority Support in 2016 Much Like Hitler Jewish Support in 1932

Hitler had surprising support in 1932 from Jewish voters attracted by his promises to restore law and order, boost the economy and make Germany great again. Donald Trump’s campaign themes are strikingly similar. Is there a lesson to be learned here? Trump recently appealed to African-Americans as the only candidate who can solve long-term problems of crime and chronic unemployment. ...

Donald Trump to Unleash First TV Attack Ads; Expect Worst, Dems Say

Donald Trump, who has made the big lie a central part of his presidential campaign–i.e. Obama created ISIS–is about to fire his first television campaign broadside against Democrat Hillary Clinton. He’s trying to shore up flagging support around the country with a new campaign team. The supposed masterminds behind the campaign are recently ousted Fox News honcho Roger Ailes and Steve Bannon, the executive director of far-right wing news service Breitbart News. ...

Madonna Uses the N-Word in France to Decry Rising Anti-Semitism (audio!)

Madonna used the N-word in radio interview in France today (Feb. 27); not the n-word well known in the U.S. but one just as despised in Europe–Nazism– to protest rising anti-Semitism across Europe. The 56-year-old singer compared France and Europe generally to Nazi Germany because of the rise of what she said was religious intolerance. Madonna targeted her remarks at France’s hard-right National Front party and its leader Marine Le Pen....
