Trump Isn’t Hitler – SOME MORE NEWS

Trump Isn’t Hitler – SOME MORE NEWS


Ah. Hello, I’m a news dude, and here’s some news: Donald Trump is Hitler! Wait, no no no! Okay, don’t go. Here’s some more news: Donald Trump is a… fascist? Wait, no okay! Keep going. Here’s some even more news: Donald Trump is a Trumpist. Trump as in being a word liberals and conservatives use to refer to specific behaviors and a movement represented by Donald Trump. Trumpist candidates are popping up in the Republican Party, some of whom retweet Nazi propaganda, some of whom are merely Holocaust deniers. But one thing’s for certain: Trumpism is not conservatism or liberalism, it is a separate phenomenon, which we will explore in great detail later. And it’s actually a synonym for American fascism. And although there are similarities and parallels between Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler, a Nazi, he isn’t literally Hitler. Or, actually Hitler. Or even mostly Hitler. And saying he is isn’t helpful. But, he is a fascist. And we need to examine what all of these words mean which is a… cool idea for a comedy show to do? Hitler isn’t the best comparison to Donald Trump, even if some parts are understandable. Historians of fascism all recognize his similar rhetoric, his common themes, his tactics, the camps. Justifying those camps via a Bible quote historically used to justify Nazism and American slavery. The way he talks about outsiders infesting the country. Treating “illegals” as subhumans. Slowly changing the definition of illegal, like starting to go after naturalized citizens for deportation. Even arresting citizens. Gradually making any treatment of the outgroup acceptable. But we’ll get to that. No, no, no, actually we’re going to do some of it real quick right now. So here’s a little gameshow we like to call, “F*ckin’, who said this?” Welcome to “F*ckin’ who said this,” here’s the game: “The Democrats for whole decades let in these illegals. Hundreds of thousands a year! And now that I’m taking a stand, nothing but tears for these animals!” Who said it? Tic-toc, tic-toc, tic-toc. Hitler. Hitler said it, it was Hitler. I changed some words, barely, here’s the real quote, but like, it’s about Jews instead, because the way he talks is undeniably Hitlerian, fascist. And even though historian Robert Paxton thinks this similar rhetoric is just a coincidence that Trump hasn’t read up on, One of the few books Trump has read that wasn’t The Art of the Deal was a book of Hitler’s speeches. Interesting. So, maybe there’s a reason he talks of infestation and has weekly updates on immigrant crime, even though immigrants commit fewer crimes than non-immigrants. A Hitler tactic. And maybe there’s a reason he claims immigrant crime is up when it’s down. And immigration is at an all-time high, when it’s not. And orders a report on the cost of refugees, finds out that they add 63 billion dollars to the economy, and cancels the report, and demands it only show the cost of refugees. So, sure, that’s all a little Hitlerian. But- But, just talking like Hitler, and using the same rhetorical and xenophobic, manipulative themes to gain power and foment fear, doesn’t necessarily mean anything, and we wanna be Fair and Balanced™©® at Cody’s show-dy, right out of the gate. It’s fair to say that Donald Trump is not a totalitarian, which Hitler was. Totalitarianism is when a regime has full control over every aspect of life. And fascism generally is authoritarian, a lesser version of totalitarianism in which a dictator, or committee, or an otherwise small group of political elites maintain full political power. But they’re not totalitarian. Authoritarians are “only concerned with political power, and as long as that is not contested, it gives society a certain degree of liberty.” Historians of fascism also recognize Trump’s authoritarianism, but again we’ll get into that. Trump is not Hitler. He is racist, but he’s not so severely and specifically racist that he has a plan to put people in camps and exterminate them, it doesn’t seem. Nazism, from the getgo, was explicitly racist, and had a specific program and ideology. But fascism, on the whole, is actually more fluid than that. Mussolini and fascist movements in general are often described as being ideologically inconsistent, marked by unprincipled opportunism, making alliances and compromises for the goal of gaining more power and progressing the movement, so it’s unfair to say that Trump has a bunch of Hitler plans. But it’s balanced to say, “That doesn’t mean he’s not a fascist.” Fascism is fluid and takes on qualities of its nation and leader. Mussolini liked to claim that he was the definition of fascism. Some historians believe that it’s more apt to just call German fascism “Hitlerism,” Italian fascism “Mussolinism,” and like, maybe, like, American fascism would be, like, Trumpism. But, when people today say, “You’re a Nazi!” or, “Trump is Hitler!” it’s exaggerated shorthand for American fascism, which is a shorthand for – well, we’ll get to that. And sure, there are actual neo-Nazis out there, which, we’ll get into, and actual white nationalists out there, which, we’ll get into, but American fascism won’t look like that. We wouldn’t use symbols like the swastika, or the Italian fasces, seen here behind Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, as she lies about separating children from their parents and putting them in camps. As historian of fascism Robert Paxton explains in his book, The Anatomy of Fascism, “No swastikas in an American fascism, but Stars and Stripes (or Stars and Bars) and Christian crosses. No fascist salute, but mass recitations of the pledge of allegiance,” like, maybe how detained migrant children are reciting the pledge of allegiance every morning in their camps. Paxton goes on to say, “These symbols contain no whiff of fascism in themselves, of course, but an American fascism would transform them into obligatory litmus tests for detecting the internal enemy.” American fascism wouldn’t have a bunch of people wearing the same uniform for their dear leader, American fascism symbology would “have to be as familiar and reassuring to loyal Americans as the language and symbols of the original fascisms were familiar and reassuring to many Italians and Germans.” Like, maybe, instead of everyone wearing the same uniform, they’d wear something that represents a national pastime. that everybody already wears, to promote their collective passions and inclusion in a group, without sacrificing their individualism. And, fascism isn’t about antisemitism specifically, it’s about outsiders and insiders, us versus them. Just because Trump has a Jewish son-in-law, and supports Israel, doesn’t mean he can’t be a fascist. American fascism, instead of the extermination of Jews, might have something to do with a nation, that, in a historically speaking short amount of time, created a country based on liberty and equality while enslaving an entire race, committed genocide against Natives in the pursuit of expansionism and American exceptionalism, which the President has praised, expanded further and turned Mexico from this, into this, continued slavery, had a civil war about slavery, killed the guy who ended slavery, started turning former slaves into prison slaves, had decades of racial segregation, ended segregation, and just figured that everything would be fine a number of decades later, while increasing race-based mass incarceration for profit and labor. Those events would probably be the shades that color what American fascism would look like. America already has a relationship with fascism; historians generally agree that the first fascist movement was the KKK. I wonder why David Duke loves Trump’s movement so much. And Hitler modeled some of his worst laws on our Jim Crow laws. So if a man starts to dehumanize non-white outsiders, and calls to ban an entire religion from entering the country, and there’s a rise in people harassing those who “look foreign,” and calling or threatening to call the cops or ICE on them for existing, and the president makes a conscious decision to implement a “zero-tolerance policy” that separates children from their parents, and due to overflow starts building black sites and camps on military bases to detain them indefinitely, in for-profit prisons from companies like CoreCivic, in which reports indicate that immigrants are being coerced into forced labor at those camps, maybe, maybe, that’s closer to American fascism than the literal Holocaust. Maybe American fascism will be camps for migrants to be used for prison labor. That’s a much more realistic picture of American fascism than literally Nazis. But, that leap of logic, “Trump is exactly Nazis,” is a distraction that lets willfully blind pundits and politicians scoff and say, “You fool, he’s not Hitler Hitler, therefore, ignore everything happening.” “I mean, delusional nonsense, read a damn book.” “If Trump were a Nazi, does Judd Apatow really think that he’d be able to go on Twitter and say stuff like this?” Yes, Ben, good point. We are indeed not living in the very end of Nazi Germany. Which was how the Nazis started out? Yes, here’s conservative bad boy Ben Shapiro, complaining about everyone calling whoever they don’t like Hitler. It’s dishonest and harmful. Conservative bad boy Steven Crowder agrees. You call everyone Hitler, no one will believe you when Hitler’s there. So, in response, here’s his nuanced character “Tranny Hitler.” Because asking for basic decency and acceptance for marginalized groups is… Nazi-like. Ben and Steven also like to use any mention of gun regulation as an opportunity to compare people to Nazis. Ignoring all the non-Nazi countries with gun control, and how, you know, like, how, like, Hitler massively expanded gun rights, and then, removed them for specifically Jews? And how that’s absolutely nothing? Like the majority of the country calling for gun regulation in response to mass shootings and gun violence. Because gun control isn’t Nazi Germany stuff, Ben. There’s gun control in current-day Germany. And other countries that also aren’t Nazis, Ben. These people are full of gems like this. Like when Louder with Crowder says, “The Nazis were pro-choice so, like, liberals are pro-choice, so they’re Nazis.” But, here on Loudest with Johnston, we’ll say, “The Nazis were pro non-Aryan women getting abortions, for the purposes of eugenics. And allowed abortions for Aryan women only in cases of provably potential hereditary defects from a parent, aka eugenics. And in 1943, providing abortions to Aryan women was a capital offense, Steven! So, yeah, maybe we shouldn’t make Nazi comparisons to just anything we don’t like, when the comparison isn’t apt, and isn’t unique to Nazis or fascists. And maybe, we can, to a certain extent, forgive people for making a Hitler comparison when they see a right-wing demagogue who built his campaign on scapegoating outsiders as an infestation of violent animals that need to be removed in order to reinvigorate our nation. It’s not just Hitler and Nazis, though, people use the word “fascist” very flippantly, on both sides. During Hitler’s rise, communists called anyone to the right of them a fascist. In 1932, Ernst Thälmann even had to say, “Nothing could be more fatal for us than to opportunistically overestimate the danger posed by Hitler-fascism.” Unfortunate, what happened next. But, even the people who complain about fascist comparisons do it all the time. Here’s Ben Shapiro, talking about “Obama’s Fascist State of the Union Address.” These right-wing pundits and propagandists use this “you’re a fascist!” argument in order to twist it to eventually mean, “the Left are the real fascists, actually.” And this is demonstrably false. And, before we get into what fascism is, I think it’s important to pinpoint what fascism isn’t, and what fascism isn’t just. Fascism isn’t just authoritarianism. Many people just throw the word around when they think the government has too much control. But, there are many different varieties of authoritarianism. It’s a feature of fascism, but it’s not unique to fascism. Trumpist propagandist Dinesh D’Souza will often cite Antifa violence as being the real fascists. He’s used a quote from Robert Paxton’s The Anatomy of Fascism, “The legitimation of violence against a demonized internal enemy brings us close to the heart of fascism.” Dinesh gives a speech in which he likens people protesting the inauguration of a president who did not receive the most votes as the real fascists. And it’s been a while since I mentioned Hitler, who never received the popular majority, nor did Mussolini, but yes, the citizens protesting, those are the real fascists. Also, Dinesh, you just released a trailer for your new propaganda film, with a clever name alluding to the film, The Birth of a Nation, real good stuff, buddy, and you do your “the Left is the real fascists!” business, this time it’s because the Nazis had a welfare state. Welfare means the real fascists. “Both Mussolini and Hitler set up and ran welfare states.” Interesting claim to include, and interesting conclusion, and I haven’t seen your sh*tty movie, Dinesh, but I bet you probably don’t also include any mention of this passage from Paxton’s book, that you probably didn’t read, about how “Fascists had to do something about the welfare state. In Germany, the welfare experiments of the Weimar Republic had proved too expensive after the Depression struck in 1929. The Nazis trimmed them and perverted them by racial forms of exclusion.” And here’s what we really need to understand, before moving on, and moving forward, because fascism, regardless of nation, or time, or leader, is a reaction against the Left. It’s a frustration with liberalism, it’s a rejection of socialism, and communism, and Marxism, and feminism, and globalism, and perceived weakness. It’s a reactionary movement that’s a bit outside the realm of conservatism, that forms an uneasy alliance with conservatives, and centrist elites, to quote Robert Paxton, “against their common enemies on the Left.” That’s one of the reasons the movement was successful, why some progressed and took hold, because of collective hatred of the Left. Or, as Paxton also says, “Dictatorship against the Left amidst popular enthusiasm, that was the combination that fascism would manage to put together one short generation later.” “We need a generic term for what is a general phenomenon, indeed the most important political novelty of the twentieth century, a popular movement against the Left.” Or, as Newt Gingrich recently said out loud, “Trump is not essentially a conservative. Trump is an anti-liberal. They’re not the same phenomenon. But, he may be the most effective uprooter of liberalism in my lifetime.” So all of these people, regardless of their intentions, are being very dishonest. And yeah, it’s dangerous to blindly compare leaders to Hitler. Just as it’s dangerous to present Hitler as an illogical, mystical, chaos-wanting bogeyman, who couldn’t possibly take power again. And yeah, of course, people throw the word “fascist” around to mean, “don’t tell me what to do,” or “don’t shove me, you fascist,” but, to present fascism as what it’s the opposite of, is historically immoral, because it’s knowingly pushing people to a place in which they might not be able to recognize it when it happens. Or maybe, push people into supporting it. Like, um, like fascist propaganda. No, Trump isn’t Hitler, but Trumpism is a synonym for fascism, which, at its core, is an obsession with an idea, and an individual attached to that idea that is so strong and so powerful that it, by necessity, gets left unchecked, will destroy everything but that person and that idea. So, here we go, Finally. Now, I kinda really don’t wanna do it. But, okay! Fascism. Okay. Oh, God. So much. I- We’re gonna do it next time, we’ll do this next time, actually.

  • As a trans person, the "tranny hitler" thing didn't bother me much. I'm in the camp that slurs are only offensive if the intent of the speaker is to offend (and it's pretty easy to tell). Here, you were just quoting what another person said, so it's fine, but the person who originally said it? Kinda fucked up. That and half the time I hear "tranny" I think of a vehicle transmission, which is mostly just confusing.

    This is ben shapiro we're talking about though. Internet edgelord extraordinaire.

  • Fascism is not a "frustration with liberalism" it's the unveiling of the conservative outcomes of liberalism to unite liberalism with conservatism against Socialism. Liberalism is Enlightened (implicit) Autocracy whereas Fascism is Explicit Autocracy.

  • I'd come across Dinesh D'Souza's TRASH PROPAGANDA HIT-PIECE (…sorry… I mean, "documentary") "Death of a Nation" initially without knowing what it was or who he was, but I found the presentation entertaining/intriguing enough to keep sitting & listen through (a rare accomplishment for "Tea-Party" mouthpieces), until the first hiccup where he disingenuously Praised the "REPUBLICAN" President Abe Lincoln and demonized the evil racist "DEMOCRATS" of the pre- and ante-bellum era of "The War of Southern Treason" and carried on the pretense that a major political "PARADIGM SHIFT" had not taken place within the two main "PARTIES" (labels) whereby their "PLATFORMS" (ideologies) did complete 180-degree full flips!

    But even then I chose to keep watching & listening and considering the arguments and viewpoints being put forth… UNTIL he pulled up some Nazi Manifesto intending to show the "similarities" between "German Nazism" and "American Progressivism" and FRAUDULENTLY highlighted as one of their main "similarities" a desire to "SUPPRESS & CONTROL THE PRESS!" There was some other equally B.S. "similarity" passage he'd highlighted that was also DELIBERATELY DISHONEST which I could not retain in my memory because by that point I'd realized that D.D. had absolutely ZERO interest in even putting on a PRETENSE of "objectivity," let alone reporting with "impartiality."

    And Please understand… I'd not even heard of Dinesh D'Souza at this point — and I only came across ANY of this LITERALLY only ONE NIGHT AGO!!!

    "Conservatives" in this Country could really make much more compelling arguments *IF* they'd simply conduct their Mental Gymnastic exercises with just a bit more HONESTY and INTEGRITY and with less reliance on "DECEITFUL BIAS."

  • Dude, I’m so glad you’re still doing these. Lucky for me, I found out late, so now I get to watch them all in one miserable, upsetting, chuckle fest. You rock, man!! You’re mad as hell, and you’re not gonna take it anymore….

  • I think, when people speak about Trump "being" Hitler, they don't mean it in the literal sense of the word. It refers to a set of behaviours he distributes. His hatred of the free press, his constant demonizing of Mexicans and other people that are not his skincolor, his yelling during his ralleys all remind a lot of Europeans of Hitler, and his partymembers don't help by building a cult following around him, just to stay in power.
    A lot of people also think, that, if Trump could, he would display a lot more Hitler-like qualities, it's just the luck of the US, that this is not possible in it's entirety. It speaks volumes, that he looked at Hitlers speeches, instead of literature about how to lead masses (to explain phenomena like Jim Jones for instance). The Nazipast of Europe influences him much more, than Mussolinis Italy, or Francos Spain and I think that's where the Hitler comparison comes from.

  • Undisciplined Intellectual says:

    Trump isn't Hitler. Mexicans and Muslims didn't infiltrate our government and financial system, conspiring to sabotage our war efforts for personal gain…

  • Trump is nothing more than a dictator. Democracy requires a leader to listen to the masses. When Trump sacks more and more of his advisors and employs morons who will do anything for him, including lying, then thats a dictatorship.

  • A few misleading points. The first one about Trump referring to immigrants as animals, the statement was about MS-13; you know the Mexican gang that literally eats and rapes people. It would have been more apt to try to say outright that he was conflating the two groups, MS-13 and immigrants in general, as is usually done that part was left out. The second point I noticed was on gun control, it's usually a right leaning talking points because, generally speaking, the right points to the second amendment whereas Germany did not have a protection like the 2nd. The 3rd point is on the abortion, Margret Sanger the founder of planned Parenthood also inspired the Nazis but that's been neglected for … reasons. Not gonna write a paper in the comment section , but I like the show simply because it is a 3rd source besides the David packman show and John Oliver to prevent an echo chamber, you notice discontinuity between the right and left wings.

  • Mortar team and a pooch says:

    About that quote in the beginning. One is about criminals. Because they broke the law by entering the USA ILLEGALLY (Doing illegal stuff makes you a criminal), thus forcing them take cash-in-hands jobs, meaning no taxes (also ILLEGAL!). The other is targeting people for their ethnicity ONLY. If you can't be serious that that's the same thing. Just… Stupid.

  • jennybugsification13 says:

    So, The Blaze ad preceding this vid rings an awful lot like that Gillette ad Joe Rogan, and all those righties were crying about… do they need to hear it with a twang to get on board? Still loved the message, thanks Blaze…? Ya, thanks♡

  • jennybugsification13 says:

    Michigan still does not have clean water. The EPA has relaxed waste disposal in two other states leading to a rise in child cancer cases. At least 50 top admin position that specifically must be appointed by our president remain empty…. but ya, wall.

  • This person is being deliberately misleading with the majority of his evidence trump is a fascist. Fascism means forcibly suppressing voices of your opposition. Obama weaponized the IRS before leaving office to target conservative groups. Social media regularly shuts down conservative speech while deplatforming individuals who do not agree with them. Google fired an employee for expressing his views as a Republican. College campuses nationwide limit freedom of speech bc they consider opposing opinions as hate speech. The left openly supported a fascist group called antifa whos main goal was to limit freedom of speech through violence. Even attempting to criminalized not calling some individuals by their perferred pronounce.You could spend weeks on YouTube watching violent democrats behaving like children. Several months ago Maxine waters on national television called for violence against republicans. As well as several other high profile democrats. Which is why there are no extremely popular democrats who are known for debating ideas. While republicans have some of the most enlightened individuals in their ranks. I'm sorry but the left is responsible for micro aggressions and safe spaces in order to avoid justifying its views. The level of fuckery here is breathtaking.

  • According to Drumpf, the chief crime of immigrants is their existance – and the solution – the creation of a white-only nation – is to deport, enslave, imprison, or murder those who who are not designated as properly Aryan.

  • The President is like Hitler because he put the illegals in camps. How absolutely absurd. He wasn't going to let so many undocumented & unvetted people just flood the border so he gave them shelter so they didn't have to sleep outside to brave the elements, & I'm more than convinced that if he had just left them to their own devices, the Left would have complained just as much if not more that he wasn't doing anything about that. The moment he starts gassing, shooting or murdering these people in any fashion someone let me know because I'd be as disgusted & horrified as any other decent human being would be

  • Christopher Boose says:

    Trump's dilemma – he wants to put everyone in camps, but then there would be nobody to tell him how wonderful he is.

  • May I "steal" your show and bring it to Germany? In German? Content is absolutely dead on, well thought out, funny (as [email protected]$k) and it is great to see somebody over there on the other side of the pond with intelligence and balls. I would love to trade books 🙂
    Of course you get the healy portion of the royalties. My motivation is spreading your knowlage mixed with ours…on a western hemisphere stage.

  • kevin stonerock says:

    Interesting how you say something to the effect that you have to watch people who throw around the word fascist. How many times have you thrown that word around in your delirious ranting? The right hasn’t made a claim to embrace fascism yet the left has promoted socialism ad nauseam. This is just one step from communism (union of soviet socialist republic). And if you would hopefully agree, Stalin was a fascist leader. If you want to make your foolish assumptions then you should review what it means to be one. There’s a big difference between the Christian beliefs upon which this country was founded on and the people who seek to undermine them. It’s pretty amusing when people who don’t know what this country stood for comes here trying to tear it down and ends up trying to make it like the country they left behind which they didn’t like when they lived in it. If you want to see a picture of a hypocrite then look in the mirror windbag.

  • Asa Coe  I watched a bit of it. Subscribed to it so I can find out who this guy is and troll the comment section.
    But this is half comedy. Saying Trump's talk is Hitlerian because it is nationalistic..come on. It's like saying trump is Hitler because because they both drink water. I remember early Sander saying that to believe America exists you have to believe in borders. So trump is Bernian too.

  • I thinks its unfair to says Trumps talking about "Immigrants" when he's really talking about Illegal Immigrants. Totally on Trumps side when it comes to the border.

  • Actually, Illegal Immigration is at a decade high, even when you ignore parents and children crossing illegally.

  • Saje Williams says:

    I’ve suggested that bit about labor myself. Why allow migrants to do that sort of thing when we have these detainees who need to “earn their keep?” It really wouldn’t surprise me at all.

  • Trump aint Hitler but… ( https://www.newsweek.com/hitler-incompetent-lazy-nazi-government-clown-show-opinion-1408136)
    Hitler was incredibly lazy. According to his aide Fritz Wiedemann, even when he was in Berlin he wouldn't get out of bed until after 11 a.m., and wouldn't do much before lunch other than read what the newspapers had to say about him, the press cuttings being dutifully delivered to him by Dietrich.

    He was obsessed with the media and celebrity, and often seems to have viewed himself through that lens. He once described himself as "the greatest actor in Europe," and wrote to a friend, "I believe my life is the greatest novel in world history." In many of his personal habits he came across as strange or even childish—he would have regular naps during the day, he would bite his fingernails at the dinner table, and he had a remarkably sweet tooth that led him to eat "prodigious amounts of cake" and "put so many lumps of sugar in his cup that there was hardly any room for the tea."

    He was deeply insecure about his own lack of knowledge, preferring to either ignore information that contradicted his preconceptions, or to lash out at the expertise of others. He hated being laughed at, but enjoyed it when other people were the butt of the joke (he would perform mocking impressions of people he disliked). But he also craved the approval of those he disdained, and his mood would quickly improve if a newspaper wrote something complimentary about him.

    Little of this was especially secret or unknown at the time. It's why so many people failed to take Hitler seriously until it was too late, dismissing him as merely a "half-mad rascal" or a "man with a beery vocal organ."

  • Okay this is some huge load of BS:
    "Fascism is typically authoritarian, a lesser form of totalitarian. But not totalitarian""
    Yeah… Mussolini is the origin of the concept of totalitarianism as well as the original fascist leader.
    Some times I'm pretty sure Cody just makes shit up to sound knowledgable.

  • Christ, how is demagoguery not a crime when we know it's blatantly used to scapegoat and avoid discussion of real issues, promote hatred and tap in to the worst and most irrational aspects of our tribalistic tendencies. This shit shouldn't be tolerated.

  • I wouldn't call Trump a Fascist. He is a Nationalist. They are not the same. To be Nationalist you simply love your country. A Fascist simply seeks to control all the people who live in a country. They are the definitions that were missed in the video because comedy 1:02 ? I can see why it could be blended together because Trump and Hitler both love their countries. However Hitler sought to rule over all and even more extreme, went to commit genocides. Trump just isn't a Fascist, he doesn't seek to overthrow our Democracy to a Totalitarian regime, he is for Democracy. He doesn't even want a war with Iraq… So he isn't warmongering, he is just a Nationalist trying his very best to rebuild a struggling American economy with his skills as a businessman throwing his weight around to help out in trade deals. Sounds like he is doing well too.

    On these "Concentration camps", they really are not that! Concentration camps In WWII wouldn't let you leave, you worked as a slave to the Fascist state. They were built within the country not around its boarders. What these American camps are, are detainment camps which seek to detain illegal immigrates and either process them through normal immigration or deport them back. They are not forced to work, they are fed, given water and sheltered. They are there on their own free will, but as the law says they are not permitted to enter the country illegally. Ok so if we have it the way the democrats want and we remove the camps? Just go full open boarders yeah that works… no way, how are Americans going to pay for all this immigration in Taxes? Letting everyone in like that, actual criminals and terrorists. Please feel free to have a discussion. I am interested in hearing what people have to say about these false equivalencies.

  • dreamervanroom says:

    Do you expect camps for the homeless? Now or after? Tgese policies may create more homeless before the roundups -lower Social Security and less food stamps and more medical bills unpaid because of fewer medical benefits.
    Once you have some camps, then this will make things safer for everyone. Walking in downtown LA is gross and not to be done alone after dark. Better clean it up.
    This is our only planet. There is no place for exile. All together now.

  • The ISLAM BAN PETITION
    There are 13 countries in which atheism is punishable by death. There are 18 countries where homosexuality is punishable by death. ALL of them are Islamic.
    Islamic nations rank lowest in women's rights. In fact, cruel and unusual acts of violence are regularly carried out on women on a systematic basis in these nations.
    Islamic nations which do not have oil as a resource are backward, both in terms of technology and economy.
    Most of the terrorist groups active today commit similar acts of terrorism that are in line with the Islamic doctrine and claim to do so in the name of Allah enshrined in the Koran.
    There are thousands of Islamic terror groups active worldwide. ISIS and al-Qaeda are just the ones that got popular.
    Islam demands exclusiveness. And demands domination over other faiths. This makes it incapable of adjustment and co-existence.
    Wherever Islam becomes dominant, minority rights cease to exist. The declining population of non Muslims in many Muslims countries is the proof of that.

    Violence is most often done in the name of Islam, more than any other religion. In Bangladesh, atheist bloggers and secularists are often “hacked” to death with machetes right on the roads in broad daylight by Islamic conservatives.

    Islam insists on extremely cruel punishments for ordinary transgressions. Cutting off hands of thieves, death for drawing imagery, death for being homosexual and indulging in sodomy. Stoning, be headings, throwing off rooftops after blinding and cuffing the victim, etc are some of the “divine” punishments Islam encourages.
    Islam is absolute. Unchangeable. The confidence that Muslims have in their convictions towards Islam makes Islam incapable of any reform thus making it stagnant, backward and incapable of progress.
    Islam treats non Muslims as inhuman or sub-human. It demands that polytheists be killed for being filthy. Polytheists means Hindus btw. This has been attempted in the past by Muslims rulers who ruled invaded and ruled India before the British. They gave up their plan because “Hindus put up a big fight against Islam.”
    Islam forces women to wear extremely regressive clothing and thinks of women's bodies as a thing of shame. Muslim women in many countries risk acid been thrown into their faces if they don't wear the hijab or burqa.
    Fatwas of death are regularly issued by Muslim leaders calling for the murder of certain individuals. In short, a promise of payment of money in exchange for murder of some other individual is a common practice in the faith.
    Women are treated as objects for male pleasure. Multiple wives, sex slaves, oral divorces etc add weight to this claim.
    Islam has NEVER been at peace except for the first 12 years of its birth. It has always indulged in invasion, forced conversions and wars.
    Blasphemy laws exist wherever Islam becomes dominant. Insulting Islam or the prophet is punishable by death in many countries.
    The public execution of Farkunda demonstrates that the “moderate” Muslims are not so moderate and support terrorism in the Islamic cause.
    There's a civil war going on in the “religion of peace” as we are reading this. Numerous denominations, Shia, Sunni, sufi, wahabbi etc are at war with each other since times immemorable. All of them claim to be “true muslims” and claim that others are not.
    Muslims slowly develop a presence in various countries and as their population numbers build, become more aggressive and assertive about exercising Sharia law.
    “Islam is not a religion, It's a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life, Islam has very barbaric 7th century religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a mask.
    Immams at mosques suggest takeover through population expansion. Their takeover of a country is through increased birth, or “Islamization,” Muslims practice taquia (or deception) also coached at the mosque until the population of Muslims reaches a critical mass, that's when they being to agitate for various privileges.
    Open, free, democratic secular societies are particularly vulnerable. “When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well.
    When the Muslim population remains under 2% in a country, they will be seen primarily as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the current situation in:
    United States — Muslim 0.6%
    Australia — Muslim 1.5%
    Canada — Muslim 1.9%
    China — Muslim 1.8%
    Italy — Muslim 1.5%
    Norway — Muslim 1.8%
    As the Muslim population reaches 2% to 5%, they begin to recruit from ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, within prisons and street gangs. This is happening in:
    Denmark — Muslim 2%
    Germany — Muslim 3.7%
    United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
    Spain — Muslim 4%
    Thailand — Muslim 4.6%
    “From 5% on, they start voting as a block, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population,” “For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food” and increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature such food on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. This is happening in:
    France — Muslim 8%
    Philippines — 5%
    Sweden — Muslim 5%
    Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
    The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
    Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%
    Soon they begin to apply pressure to allow Sharia law within their own communities (sometimes ghettos).
    “When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions,” Dr. Hammond notes. “In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam, with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam.” These tensions are seen on a regular basis in:
    Guyana — Muslim 10%
    India — Muslim 13.4%
    Israel — Muslim 16%
    Kenya — Muslim 10%
    Russia — Muslim 15%
    The violence increases when the Muslim population reaches 20%. “After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burning of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues,” such as in:
    Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%
    “At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare,” such as in:
    Bosnia — Muslim 40%
    Chad — Muslim 53.1%
    Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%
    From 60%, persecution of non-believing “infidels” rises significantly, including sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia law as a weapon, and Jizya, a tax placed on infidels, such as in:
    Albania — Muslim 70%
    Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
    Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
    Sudan — Muslim 70%
    After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out “infidels,” and move toward a 100% Muslim society, which has been experienced to some degree in:
    Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
    Egypt — Muslim 90%
    Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
    Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
    Iran — Muslim 98%
    Iraq — Muslim 97%
    Jordan — Muslim 92%
    Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
    Pakistan — Muslim 97%
    Palestine — Muslim 99%
    Syria — Muslim 90%
    Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
    Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
    United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%
    A 100% Muslim society will theoretically usher in their version of peace — the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace. “Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrassas are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word,” such as in:
    Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
    Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
    Somalia — Muslim 100%
    Yemen — Muslim 100%
    But in reality in this state, Islamic ideal is seldom realized. “Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.” as is happening in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen etc. Fighting between Sunni Shias, Ahmadayya's, Sufi, Deobandi, Wahabbi, Ismalites, and also between Baloch, Panjabi, Pastun, Sindi, Afghani…the sects keep on fighting on who is the best for Islam.
    This is the reason there needs to be a world wide ban on Islam. starting in these Muslim Minority countries.

  • I came upon this channel pretty recently. I have to defend Illinois for running a Republican Holocaust denier. He was the only Republican to run in that district because it was so heavily Democrat that nobody else bothered running, and he got crushed.

  • This is nonsense. Fascism is the destruction of everything that divides the nation to direct the nation outward to conquest. (In germany this was driven by revenge of the loss of ww1, in italy to restore the roman empire in the mediteranian). Its is therefor anti parlementairian and against political parties. As party comes from the french word partir (devide) and parlement from parler : to speak. A democracy is therefor devided interests that speak (debate). Fascism doesnt want devide, neither debate, it want unity that can be directed outward. Its also anti constitutional. In that sense that the constitution defends the people against its governement. Considering that the fascist leader enbodies the will of the people, the country doesnt need a constitution because the people do not have to be defended against there own will. Secondly the idea that antisemitism and anti-immigrant retoric are the same negates the fact that anti-semitism is largely driven by ressentment. The first anti-semitic party in germany lamented the jewish succes in business. Thirdly fascism is neither socialist nor capitalist, as both devide the nation in classes. It doesnt like socialism for practical reasons : you cant have strikes when preparing for war and for ideological reasons: socialism devides the nation in classes. Fascism is also not capitalist since its industries must be preparer for war and not produce consumer goods. Fascism is also against capitalism in the sense that it is a materiliastic ideology ans spiritually empty (much like communism). I can go on, but this idea of fascism is so infantile that it is hilarious.

  • Well, the word "Fascist" does get overused. For example, during the Weimar Republic that was in power before Hitler, the ruling Social Democrats were called "Social Fascists" by the Communists, who refused to unite and vote with them.
    Nevertheless, real Fascists were among them, and after Hitler got in, were truly in control. So just because a word gets overused does not mean that the real thing does not exist.

    Ive been thinking the exact same things since he took office im glad im not the the only one that sees the very troubling similarities between the two. Sadly the word "fascism" has been so overused in the improper context that no one takes it seriously anymore and calling Trump a facist is likely to get nothing more than a eye roll

  • David Szczesniak says:

    the left LOST because they decided that Hillary corporate Clinton was a better choice than Bernie. media companies and the DNC kneecapped him and now they suffer the consequences.

    and because gender politics started to go insane so people got fed the fuck up with people trying to reject biology for imaginary identity.

  • Did he get booted from Cracked for being too abrasive? Is that he has this show? Because if it is, that's pretty fucking awesome.

  • Mouse Hunt 1997 Extended Director's Cut says:

    You are right about gun control existing in nonfascist countries, but something worth considering is that we are in the beginnings of a fascist state right now. Maybe we on the left should be careful about limiting our access to firearms too broadly when so many of us are under threat on a daily basis by the wave of "Trumpism"/fascism.
