With all of the nonsense being put out by the desperate bipartisan establishment about Trump being the second coming of Adolf Hitler and his supporters being the equivalent of Nazi Brownshirts it was only a matter of time until the concentration camp card was played. This time it was flaming liberal dingus Sally Kohn who bemoaned the media coverage of Trump during CNN’s Super Saturday coverage and conjured up images of the demented little kraut with the funny mustache. There actually come a day when we at last reach peak Hitler but it’s hard to see right now.
As reported by the Washington Post “CNN commentator: Media will share blame when Trump ‘institutes internment camps’”:
As Donald Trump added to his delegate total on Saturday with primary and caucus victories in Louisiana and Kentucky, CNN commentator Sally Kohn offered a grim forecast of a Trump presidency — and suggested the media will be culpable.
“There is a fine line between covering a candidate and amplifying a candidate,” Kohn, a progressive activist, said during the cable channel’s coverage of Saturday voting. “And I’m sorry, but, yes, Donald Trump may be the Republican front-runner, I still think we’re giving him way too much attention in proportion to the other candidates who also had victories to celebrate tonight. I’m worried. When he institutes internment camps and suspends habeas [corpus], we’ll all look back and feel pretty bad.”
Godwin’s Law be damned but at some point you would think that all of the Trump is Hitler references would lose their ability to shock but on Monday Mexico’s president Enrique Pena Nieto likened the GOP front-runner to the Nazi leader and on the Sunday morning McNews circuit former Fox News host Glenn Beck actually said that Trump IS Hitler. While it’s easy to do and everyone knows who Der Führer is – unlike Mussolini, a man who the younger generation is clueless about – it smacks of laziness and mental sloth because anyone who has studied history understands that Trump has as little in common with Hitler as liberals do with common sense.
