Dems Defense Strategy 101: Call the Republicans Nazis—Good for Offense, Too

Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, who is running for governor in the Sunshine State, is the latest Democrat to compare a Republican leader to Adolf Hitler. In her campaign to unseat Gov. Ron DeSantis, she accuses him of “blaming certain parts of our society and our culture. And that’s exactly what Hitler did to the Jews back, you know, during World War II.”

Hatred for the Republican Party also runs deep in Democratic Hollywood. Cher fully believes that the GOP has transitioned into the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. Following Glenn Youngkin’s gubernatorial victory in Virginia, she told her nearly 4 million followers on Twitter: “GOP are Nazis in lockstep. It’s the difference between democracy and dictatorship.”

These views are also shared by no less than the chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army Gen. Mark A. Milley—he who oversaw the Afghanistan debacle.

In “I Alone Can Fix It,” a book written by Washington Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker, Milley is reported to have said about his former boss, Donald Trump, “The president [is] preaching the gospel of the Führer with his lies about the election being stolen.”

He also compared Trump supporters to Hitler’s “Brownshirts in the streets” and called the events of Jan. 6, 2021, a “Reichstag moment,” referring to a fire started in the German parliament by the Nazis and blamed on the Communists to enable Hitler to consolidate power. But does anyone remember Trump ever claiming it was the Democrats who broke into the Capitol building?

After that incident, Milley raged: “These guys are Nazis, they’re boogaloo boys, they’re Proud Boys. These are the same people we fought in World War II.” In the general’s mind, almost half of his fellow Americans are either Nazis or want to vote for one.

Actress Rosanna Arquette shared her revelation that “Republican” and “Racist” start with the same letter. This must have been a real shock for her and her friends in Hollywood, as they always thought “R” stood for “Rehab.”

As she thinks there are multiple meanings behind the Republican Party’s first initial, it made me wonder if the D in “Democrat” could also stand for something. One D-word that could qualify is “Damage.”

There was the damage done to an innocent Afghanistan family by Joe Biden’s somewhere “over the horizon” drone strike, the damage that angry Democratic supporters caused in cities across the United States and then denied while Donald Trump was president, what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did to a copy of Trump’s last “State of the Union” speech while he stood in front of her reading it, or the damage done to the U.S. Constitution, when Democratic state leaders made unconstitutional changes to electoral law that helped usher Joe Biden into the White House, while Supreme Court justices “hid under their desks.”

But no, none of those. I am talking about damage claims—such as $450,000 for illegal migrants separated at the border. Democrats also are seeking reparation payments for black people for the past heinous sin of slavery. But what was the slave owners’ party called again—you know, the one that started the U.S. Civil War?

Then there are the hundreds of thousands of white and black Republican Unionist soldiers who lost their lives, not only to stop the Democrats’ lust for slavery, but to stop them from breaking up America itself? Shouldn’t their descendants also receive reparations? Add to that list the victims of other Democrat initiatives, such as segregation, the Ku Klux Klan, and Jim Crow laws to name a few.

Why should U.S. taxpayers have to foot the bill? Normally offenders pay damages to victims. Maybe that is another reason why the Democratic National Committee tries so hard to deny its dirty past? So, perhaps the word I am looking for is D for “Deniers”? Certainly “plausible deniability” is a personal favorite of the Biden clan, according to their former business colleague, Tony Bobulinski.

It’s the phrase Joe Biden’s brother James used when Bobulinski asked them how they were going to get away with a joint venture that he and his nephew Hunter had planned with the Chinese energy firm CEFE, with 10 percent going to someone called “the Big Guy.” Now, how tall is Joe Biden again?

Or what about D for “Deflection”? The accusation of Russia collusion against Trump and his team turned out to be a multimillion-dollar, taxpayer-funded example of this Democratic finely honed art—this time used to hide Hillary Clinton’s own Russia collusion, as John Durham’s investigation may be beginning to uncover, or maybe not.

D for Durham? I doubt it. No, the last contender in my cursory list is D for “Dodgy.” I don’t mean duplicitous, shady, and untrustworthy. I am using the word in a phonetic sense (DOJ-y). Think of a once-impartial U.S. government law enforcement department that now seems to think it’s only a crime if a Republican does it. And even if it’s not a crime they may harass them anyway, as former New York Mayor Rudi Giuliani knows only too well.

Just to be clear though, I am not referring to the FBI, since that’s an F-word—just ask James O’Keefe of Project Veritas.
