"Let me Hitler-splain this to you"

"People want to say Hitler was a white supremacist. No. He was fearful of the Jewish nation, and that drove him into some unfathomable atrocities."

LOL.  More curious applications of blaming the victim and anti-Semitic apologizing than I'm used to.

This type of denial often occurs when people try to keep someone or something with a negative connotation from being associated with a group that they belong to or are supportive of.

That must be the Hunter guy I keep hearing the Senate wants to investigate.

Hilter called Mixed race kids "Rhineland Bastards."

In Mein Kampf, Hitler described children resulting from marriages to African occupation soldiers as a contamination of the white race "by Negro blood on the Rhine in the heart of Europe."[7] He thought that "Jews were responsible for bringing Negroes into the Rhineland, with the ultimate idea of bastardizing the white race which they hate and thus lowering its cultural and political level so that the Jew might dominate."[8] He also implied that this was a plot on the part of the French, since the population of France was being increasingly "negrified".[9]
Rhineland sterilization program[edit]
Main article: Rhineland Bastard
Under eugenics laws during the Third Reich, race alone was not sufficient criteria for forced sterilization, but anyone could request sterilization for themselves or a minor under their care.[10] The cohort of mixed-race children born during occupation were approaching adulthood when, in 1937, with Hitler's approval, a special Gestapo commission was created and charged with "the discrete sterilization of the Rhineland bastards."[11] It is unclear how much these minors were told about the procedures, or how many parents only consented under pressure from the Gestapo.[12] An estimated 500 children were sterilized under this program, including girls as young as 11.[13]

you ever notice the real Nazis wannabes ( and by that I mean anyone who currently considers themselves a trump supporter), are so happy to describe other people as Nazis, as well totally and deliberately "misunderstanding" what the fuk  Nazi actually were?

"If my sticker falls off, do I get a new one or do I get public shaming too?" Ben Carpenter, a Republican, wrote on Friday, sharing his dismay at a new requirement for legislators returning to the Alaska Capitol amid the coronavirus pandemic. "Are the stickers available as a yellow Star of David?"

Ah yes, the classic "This government program is like Nazi Germany but also Nazi Germany is a little misunderstood."

Up next: "People waving Confederate Flags aren't racist, they just want to preserve their white heritage, and besides, the Confederates all became Democrats."
 
2020-05-19 12:40:42 PM  
If you've never read a history book, it's best to start off a debate with a shiatty analogy that involves a justification of Hitler's actions.
 
2020-05-19 12:41:47 PM  
Look the Holocaust was just one big misunderstanding.
 
2020-05-19 12:42:10 PM  
White supremacists are going to be pretty disappointed when they find this out.
 
2020-05-19 12:43:24 PM  
The Republican party has become the party of Nazis and Nazi apologists (aka. more Nazis).

Everyone who denied this in 2016 was full of shiat. Anyone denying it now thinks the rest of us are easily manipulated fools.

It's all antisemitic fun and games until Woody Allen travels to Alaska, shows up on your doorsteps and kicks your ass in front of your children.

REPUBLICANS OF ALL KINDS: Why are Demoncrats so mean? They call us names, it's so unfair. Why can't they be nicer?

REPUBLICAN 2 MINUTES LATER: Hitler wasn't racist because the Jews had it coming.

REPUBLICANS OF ALL KINDS: Yeah, what that guy said!

Sadly, the "liberal" media agrees with all this. Giving a racist asshole plenty of time to disseminate his racist bullshiat, but declining to call it racist. Because murdering people because they're Jewish or black is totally not evidence of racism or anti-Semitism. Those Jews and blacks totally had it coming.

Mr Carpenter, who did not immediately respond to request for comment on Saturday, told the newspaper he didn't intend to "rile somebody' and has "no ill will towards the Jewish nation and the Jewish people in our country."

His 'apology' was more subtle than his initial dumbassery, but something about the phrasing still set off my neighborhood's canine choir.

How to not be misunderstood: No spittle-flecked rants. No hand-gestures - hands can't talk. Don't pound the podium. Stick to the script, keep your thoughts concise and short. Don't dramatically throw away your notes and go off the cuff. You needed those notes, that is why someone wrote stuff down.

If you get to the point where your thugs have to get rid of the people with better arguments than you: *fingergun, temple*

He is right. People do think Hitler was a white supremacist. Because he was.

He has no ill will towards the Jewish Nation but that fear of a Jewish Nation really upset the Nazis and that was totally understandable

This is the end result of the "conservative movement" Reagan made mainstream, shepherded along by Limbaugh and Gingrich and others to this point where we're at today. Time was, this Hitler-loving chucklefark would have been drummed out of the R party, but the old-fashioned principled kind of R who would have done that were all purged decades ago.

Was it that, where he drew a line between "Jewish people" and "our" country? As though it's impossible for someone to be both "of the Jewish nation" and American?

Oh this get's brought up quite often.  They are still convinced that modern Republicans are still the Part of Lincoln.  But that hasn't really been the case since the 70's when the Republicans started to become the party of the South.

"People want to say Hitler was a white supremacist. No. He was fearful of the Jewish nation, and that drove him into some unfathomable atrocities."

Wait so he is upset that Hitler is being misidentified as a white supremist...because this guy is a white supremacist.  He is unhappy that no one is making the distinction between Nazis and White Supremacists?  Lol

Keep digging stupid

To suggest that the Nazis were just "economically anxious" tells you everything you need to know about both this guy and that entire talking point.

So these folks are running around defending Hitler, while waving around nazi shiat and confederate flags and the like, but they also keep accusing people like Frau Whitmer of being a nazi, and isolation orders as nazi stuff.

Geniuses.

Hitler was misunderstood by many, including Alaska Representative Ben Hunter.
