  1. republicans courted votes from white supremacists and welcomed them into the party.
    And now it has taken over.
    Smooth move there.

    1. and knowing Republicans have this history with racism/white supremacy doesn’t it make you wonder why Sen Scott, the ONLY black republican in the senate hasn’t become independent yet?

    2. @Vanessa Ebony What are you talking about. Democrats owned the slaves. Democrats fought the civil war to keep slaves. Democrats formed the KKK. Democrats fought against the civil rights movement. Democrats have the history of being white supremacy.

    1. Thank you Tom, my laugh for the day. Nice thought. Maybe a replica of Trump would ne netter. After all Trump is not the Chosen One. Cheers

    2. I’d add.If he refuses to leave the White house and “Some thing “Happens, dig up his Corpse and Put him/it on trial for Sedition.

  2. The lie that my country fell for was ‘Deutschland über alles’. America first translates quite similar…
    Don’t fall for it, my American friends. Neither we nor you were ore are the greatest country on earth.
    Greetings from Germany

    1. Yes. for some reason saying to much Government.
      Meaning is that they can’t form the USA to there white racist white power hatered and take over America
      Thats allot of the rhetoric you hear from them. Traitor wannabe attempted dictator trump. Is reincarnated Hitler.

    2. DEmocratic PArty has become the PArty of Joseph Stalin. They are tyrants. And MSNBC is not that different.Most of its reporters are communists who want a socialist police state.

    3. @W.E. Rob Oh, brother…I pray for your mental liberation. Maybe someday you’ll see how delusional all this is. But here’s a pro tip: Democratic Party is not only not a hotbed of socialists and commies, those hate the Democratic Party and won’t have anything to do with it. But you’ll go on thinking lifetime moderate Biden is Hugo Chavez, Xi, Stalin…Mao? …and you think we’re the sheeple, when there’s not an original thought in the lot of you.

  3. I have watched/listened to a lot of Prof. Timothy Snyder’s talks and they are chilling. He has an incredibly clear insight into what is happening in the US today.

    1. I haven’t heard him speak before, nor read any of his work, but he is so amazingly clear and 100% correct. What an insightful and honest man. America would do well to listen carefully to what he has to say.

  4. Trump has completely ruined it. Trump supporters don’t even care when they call us commies, it’s the SAME thing Hitler called anyone that didn’t support him!

  5. Trump used the Facism playbook for 4 years. What Began The Rise Of Fascism In Europe? | Titans Of The 20th Century | Timeline

    1. It is destined to be around forever.
      Very timely, I am grateful to writers and scholars. A lot of people need a better understanding of or educated if you will

  6. “Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner. The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better!”-Donald Toilet Trump

  7. This man Timothy Snyder speaks a lot of sense. Andrea Mitchell is a good reporter. She asks intelligent questions
