New Kasich Video: Beware — Donald Trump Is Like Hitler

Share

There’s been lots of talk in liberal camps about the fascist tendencies of Donald Trump’s presidential campaigns — but now one of his Republican rivals is officially going there too.

A new Web video from John Kasich features a supporter of his, former Vietnam prisoner of war Col. Tom Moe, at a Kasich campaign event two days ago in Ohio.. “I would like anyone who is listening to consider some thoughts that I’ve paraphrased from German pastor Martin Niemöller,” Moe says, invoking the legendary anti-Nazi resistance leader as video clips of the various recent Trump events flash over the screen.

You might not care if Donald Trump says Muslims must register with the 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 — be 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 want get around to you — and you better hope that there’s someone left to help you.

It certainly is a daring move, and an attempt to appeal to the conscience of the electorate. But there might be a problem: If a lower-tier GOP candidate like Kasich goes around reminding the primary voters that Trump is against Muslims, Hispanic immigrants, black protesters, and pesky reporters — then might The Donald’s numbers just keep going up?

    It’s hilarious watching the GOP freak out over the monster they helped create. The monster being their own voting base.

    Not a Kasick fan, but this is spot on.

    Trump Has Exposed GOP Racism”taking back our country,” voter ID, border security
    and birtherism have always meant hating people of color. especially..Our current President.

    along
    comes a cartoon racist like Donald Trump, who ignores the code and drops the veil from
    the GOP’s structural racism. In response, Republican politicians pronounce
    themselves shocked to see such blatant bigotry, naked and unashamed.

    It’s
    a tough sell. The GOP has been doing a racist strip tease for decades now, and
    Trump is just skipping the tease. Only a few years ago, Senator Lindsey Graham
    could safely flirt with anti-immigrant racism on Fox News. Now, he’s forced to go on CNN
    and publicly disown Trump’s very similar comments, calling him a
    “wrecking ball for the future of the Republican Party with the Hispanic
    community.”

    So
    embarrassing.

    But
    it may point to a possible upside. Thanks to gauche clowns like Trump — not to
    mention Cliven Bundy, Steve King and
    others — the GOP, like the Democratic Party of the 60s, might be forced to
    reform itself, if only to end the pain.

    Because
    the party is finally experiencing the agony of racism in a form it can’t ignore:
    bad
