For the past few months, I’ve seen an incredible amount of media attention comparing one of the Presidential candidates to Adolf Hitler. Although that used to be considered a totally inappropriate comparison to…well anything; most commentators on TV are now unafraid to draw that conclusion. Even normally bland conventional wisdom minded commentators will come right out with the Nazi inference.
And for good reason.
There is a spectre haunting America’s college campuses, artesian bakeries, hookah bars, and Whole Food’s organic foods departments. That spectre is Bernie Sanders. In speeches to overflowing crowds as he crisscrosses the country, the stern old man often raises his right arm to exhort the crowd of mindless followers. Promising assorted benefits if they vote for him, and taken from minority communities that Sanders names as enemies to the country, he preaches a chilling intolerance to his amped up crowds.
It’s a crowd, by the way that does not look like America. The Berniejugend are quite monochrome in their whiteness. With eye colors from gray to hazel, and hair color from bleached blond to streaked brown, they appear to be a single Volk, united in their subjugation to Sander’s harsh diatribes against those he points out as enemies. Just think of a few comparisons we can draw from history…
The Ominous Parallels
Bernie Sanders lives in almost all white State.
Hitler lived in an almost all white country.
Bernie Sanders is a socialist.
Hitler was a national socialist.
Bernie Sanders supports national healthcare.
Hitler supported national healthcare.
As a youth, Bernie Sanders was arrested protesting government policies.
Aa a youth, Hitler was arrested protesting government policies.
Bernie Sanders blames a small minority engaged in finance for the nation’s problems.
Hitler blamed a small minority engaged in finance…well you get the idea.
Be afraid. Run to the closet, shut the door, and cover yourself with a blanket.
Oh and bring a flashlight, because the lamps are going out in America. We may not see them lit again in our lifetimes.
