The New Stop-Trump Campaign: He’s a Nazi!
In their desperate quest to end the candidacy of Donald Trump, the media, Democrats, and even fellow Republican candidates have gone Full Godwin on the richly-coiffed real estate mogul: they’re saying he’s a Nazi.
Republican presidential longshot Ohio Governor John Kasich – did you know his father was a mailman? – has now released an ad starring retired Air Force Colonel Tom Moe. The ad for Screamy McShoutypants features Moe paraphrasing a quote from pastor Martin Niemoller after World War II:
You might not care if Donald Trump says Muslims should register with their government, because you’re not one. And you might not care if Donald Trump says he’s going to round up all the Hispanic immigrants, because you’re not one. And you might not care if Donald Trump says it’s okay to rough up black protesters, because you’re not one. And you might not care if Donald Trump wants to suppress journalists, because you’re not one. But think about this: If he keeps going, and he actually becomes president, he might just get around to you. And you better hope there’s someone left to help you.
This is absurd on every level. Trump did not say that all Muslims must register with the government, contrary to the media’s manufactured narrative; he said that foreign Muslims entering the United States ought to be kept in a database, as indeed they already are. Trump didn’t say it was okay to rough up black protesters, he said it was okay to rough up protesters at his events regardless of race – an idiotic viewpoint, surely, but not a racist one. The suggestion that Trump uniquely suppresses journalists is a laugh: Barack Obama has actually attempted to wiretap journalists, and Hillary Clinton ropes them off at events.
