The far-left LOVES Adolph Hitler. Don’t let them fool you with their faux outrage over the recent manufactured nontroversy involving former Mandalorian star Gina Carano. Don’t believe their hypocritical consternation at Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. (See: ‘Canceling’ The Mandalorian’s Gina Carano for Republican-Jewish Analogy Only Proves Her Point)
These people love Hitler like John Wick loves his Heckler and Koch P30L. Far-leftists are passionate about the leader of the Third Reich, who has provided them with a handy rhetorical weapon with which to score cheap political points against those who espouse political beliefs that contradict theirs.
So-called progressives have been weaponizing Hitler against former President Donald Trump and any conservative who is not the Lincoln Project type for years. Far-leftist media activists have used their platforms as faux journalists to tie Trump and his supporters to Hitler and the Nazis. Indeed, Nazi references have become red meat for the progressive base.
Social media provides numerous examples of high-profile leftists using their favorite dictator against conservatives. Heck, a Democrat candidate for Congress even praised the Führer while slamming Trump. “You can’t FULLY compare Trump to Hitler. Hitler wasn’t too much of a coward to serve in the Army. Hitler DID fix the German economy (at least in the short run). Imagine how much of a dirty POS a person (Trump**) has to be to pale in comparison to Hitler!” he tweeted.

Here are some other examples:
Like his idol Hitler, Trump wanted his crowds to wear Trump branding on their clothing – instead of Hitler's red swastika armbands, Trump sold them red magahats. Trump even tried at 2 events early 2016 to get AUDIENCE TO PLEDGE allegiance to Trump personally

Well the cliff notes is racist nationalist terrorists incited by Donald Trump for the expressed purpose of helping him go full Hitler while they wave the flag is being ignored by 44 of our senators and 150+ House members. What else do you need to know?

Sorry but you just don’t know enough history. #trump DID block media especially @cnn from covering him. And if you actually study Hitler’s RISE as opposed to when he had full power, the comparisons are scary. Read this and then let’s talk: https://t.co/IX7u0Kgvdm

How did this country ever elect a completely terrifying lying madman like Trump? Only comparison is to Hitler. #Brainwashed

See what I mean? These are only a few of the many “everyone I don’t like is a Nazi” tweets you can find by simply looking it up and scrolling for hours. Of course, we can’t forget the media activists, celebrities, government officials and other prominent leftist types using the Nazi dictator to smear the right.
Last year, Rep. James Clyburn participated in an Axios interview in which he warned that Trump is leading America to a new Third Reich. He said he wondered “how could the people of Germany allow Hitler to exist,” and that Republicans allying with Trump makes him “understand how.”
Actress Debra Messing has also taken a trip on the “let’s pretend everyone is Hitler” train. In June last year, she posted a picture of Trump holding a Bible at St. John’s Church amid protests that claimed he was like Hitler.
But we would be remiss to forget a New York Times piece written by media activist Jochen Bittner, who wrote a miles-long diatribe about how Trump is – you guessed it – the second coming of Hitler. The author argued that Trump’s questioning the result of the 2020 presidential election was like Hitler because the dictator promoted the myth that Germany did not lose in World War I.
Let’s face it: Leftists who pretended to be offended by Carano’s accurate tweet about how Jews were treated under Nazi rule were only engaging in the latest of attempts to cancel her. These individuals had been trying to get her fired for over a year, but to no avail.
The progressive mob did not target Carano because they believe she is a bigot. They were after her because she seems to be right-leaning, and not a member of the church of progressivism. It has nothing to do with anti-Semitism. It is not because they believed she demeaned the experience of those who suffered through the holocaust. Indeed, the left does this pretty much every day by pretending conservatives are Nazis.
The “woke” mob despises Carano because she is not one of them, plain and simple. She would not bow to their demands that she include her pronouns in her Twitter bio. She brought up issues with the integrity of the elections. She has railed against cancel culture. These are the only sins she has committed – but unfortunately, the progressive Sanhedrin tends to punish these sins harshly.
Fans of “The Mandalorian” will be bummed about Lucasfilm’s decision to fire Carano. But this only highlights how serious the cancel culture problem has become. The far-left adores Hitler because he makes it easier for them to cancel those they don’t like and attack the reputations of those who disagree with them. Unfortunately, they will continue to promote this toxic behavior until it starts working against them.
