Liberals have to be terrified they can’t beat President Donald Trump — so they’re trying to run against Nazi Germany instead.
That’s one conclusion, anyway, from Twitter posts like the one published Sunday by former ESPN commentator Jemele Hill, who explicitly compared her own country to one of the most murderous, racist regimes in the history of humanity.
Fortunately, conservative actor James Woods and a host of others were on hand to point out the brutal truths of history — and for Hill, it had to hurt.
Hill, who has made a name for herself with witless attacks branding as “racists” all Trump voters (including her own mother), stirred up her latest round of publicity promoting a book that likens the treatment of blacks in the United States to the ancient caste system of India and the anti-Semitic laws of Adolf Hitler’s Germany that preceded the Final Solution of the Holocaust.
“Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents,” by author and journalist Isabel Wilkerson, notes that the Nazis’ Nuremberg Laws of 1935 prohibiting Jews from marrying Christians looked to state laws in the U.S. against racial intermarriage, according to a Washington Post review.
And in a liberal mind like Hill’s, clearly, that’s enough to equate the two countries.
“Been reading Isabel Wilkerson’s new book, ‘Caste,’ and if you were of the opinion that the United States wasn’t nearly as bad as Nazi Germany, how wrong you are,” she wrote.
A sane person might conclude that the post-1935 history of the U.S. and Nazi Germany might go a long way toward defending the premise that the “United States wasn’t nearly as bad as Nazi Germany” — like, say, the fact that millions of minorities were not slaughtered in death camps in the United States.
And that the U.S. military defeated the Nazi war machine in Western Europe, while the Soviet Red Army did the job in the east.
And that the United States has since passed a host of civil rights laws aimed at wiping out the injustices of the past and moving the country closer to the ideals it was founded on.
In the summer of misplaced rage, based on liberal lies, those are differences the left can’t abide.
Woods was one of those sane people who pointed out Hill’s vindictive dishonesty — and in terms that had to have been humiliating to Hill.
“The children small enough to be thrown into the ovens at Mauthausen were incinerated alive to save the disruption they might cause being herded into the gas chamber,” he tweeted. “You’re a raging, ignorant fool.”
Woods, of course, is known as a master of turning Twitter into a vehicle for his acerbic intelligence. But he had plenty of company.
