Godwin’s law — the theory that “as an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Hitler approaches” — has been in full effect since the launch of the Trump campaign, with the president probably setting a record for the number of times he’s been compared to Hitler by his most hysterical critics.The most guilty with the “Hitler” rhetoric are Antifa, the so-called “anti-fascists.” Given their violent and destructive tactics, “Fascists Against Fascism” would be a more appropriate name for them, as they’ve adopted fascist tactics to attack their political opponents on the Right (and, contrary to popular belief, Fascism is not a right-wing ideology).
Just to prove how receptive the so-called anti-fascists are to actual fascist rhetoric, a real-life troll decided to give a speech before a handful of Antifa members and other anti-Trump protesters. Here was the catch: the speech was composed almost entirely of quotes from Adolf Hitler.And how did they respond? With applause. They had good reason to, given the particular anti-capitalist and pro-socialist quotes chosen to be read.
Pretty hilarious stuff – don’t you think? The only problem is the faux-anti-Trump-speechmaker never revealed to the “anti-fascists” who it was he was quoting, or made note that the only people in history who have killed more people than Adolf Hitler are socialists and communists themselves (Mao Zedong and Josef Stalin).
