Trump goes all in on Nazi rhetoric, and the media gives him another free pass

“In any other America on any other timeline, a presidential candidate echoing the words of Adolf Hitler would soon be packing up for an early retirement. We clearly don’t live in any of those Americas, because former President Donald Trump got yet another free pass from the press after echoing fascist slogans during a rally in New Hampshire last week. What should have been shocking and disqualifying conduct has instead become so mundane that Republican leaders don’t even bother to feign shock at the latest paean to far-right authoritarianism. Trump’s unhinged pledge to ‘root out the communists, Marxists, fascists and the radical-left thugs that live like vermin within the confines of our country’ was a line barely modified from its original 1930s Nazi form.” (11/15/23)
