Trump Can’t Escape Having Called Nazis “Very Fine People” by SOTU Spectacle

Juan Cole

So this is the story of how Donald Trump tried to use misdirection at his State of the Union address to take the spotlight off his Neonazi tendencies, which underlie his hatred of African-Americans (against whom he was found to discriminate as a landlord), of Mexicans, of Muslims, and other peoples not coded as “white” in his warped little brain. Trump tried to appropriate the fight against the supremacist who killed Jews at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, but the effort came across and calculating and staged.

Trump looks in the mirror and sees himself as a "very fine Nazi."

And last night he had the audacity to claim that we must fight Facsism.

That, is what is actually in the mirror staring back at him.

Dont forget the head Nazi speech writer steve miller aka. Herman himmler, the worst nazi in the white house , who continually spews this vile corruption for trump to glorify. Miller is dispicablle and dangerous, his views voiced at Nuremburgh decades ago, making a ressurgence,from the W.H…

Hienrich Himmler make that…

Why does Mr Cole insist on the inclusion of Russia in his diatribe?

Cambridge Analytica met with people from a number of Countries, including the UK who were also intent on helping shape whom the US elected. I am sure they met with leaders from Israel as well whom through PNAC help pick and chose who is usutiable for Public office.

As to NAZIS , the government of the Ukraine are open NAZIS . They have members that fly the Nazi flag and that persons from WW2 that fought FOR the NAZIS. This Government of Nazis was put in power by one Barack Obama and this government of NAZIS is in conflict with Russia because they are Nazis.

Trump likes Nazis because he a Fascist. Obama favored Nazis because putting them in power was a way of weakening Russia. The USA has been trying to destroy Russia since 1917 and this fixation on how Russia reacts in order to preserve itself as a nation is hyprocrisy on the part of Mr Cole.

Back to Cambridge Analytica. They will do the same work for ANY group that hires them , be it Democrats or Republicans, be it Israel or the UK , be it China or New Zealand. THEIR only God is money. Hilary Clintons campaign met with another like group based in the USA to dig up dirt on Trump and that group “Met with Russians”. See the Steele dossier.

The only difference between our first orange president and almost all of his predecessors going back to ww2, is that he is not smart enough to hide the fact that he is a nazi in all but name.
America’s industrialists, who today make up most of america’s oligarchy, helped make the ascension of the third reich possible, and America only officially stopped collaborating with them once it became obvious that Germany was loosing the war and Russia could get the credit for it.
Unofficially they were recruiting every nazi officer and scientist they could get their hands on, culminating in operation paper clip near the end of the war.
The result is a covert nazi regime (cia, nsa, nasa etc) that is continuing their quest for world domination while waving a different flag and spouting slightly modified rhetoric, such as American exceptionalism in place of German superiority.

Again posting before my morning coffee :slight_smile:

I meant to say they (Government members of the Ukraine) openly idolize Ukrainian Nazis from ww2…

Ezra Pound didn’t “go insane in his old age”; he knew exactly what he was doing and had been actively promoting fascism for decades when he was captured. Due to his wealth and prestige, his lawyers and fellow writers managed to get him sent to an insane asylum rather than be held accountable – but even the staff at St. Elizabeth’s concluded he had nothing wrong with him other than narcissism, which isn’t something that suddenly happens to people in their old age.

Despite all the mythology to the contrary, I don’t believe it’s possible to separate his fascist views from his poetry. The poems he wrote while actively writing propaganda for Mussolini, and shortly thereafter, are considered some of his best by our literary establishment. His work did not exist in a void, and it would be impossible to separate his aesthetic from broader fascist aesthetics, just as it is not possible to separate Wagner from Nazi aesthetics.

Regardless, despite disavowing his views, his fellow writers at the time had zero interest in seeing him face the consequences of his actions, and did everything they could to shield him. This saga concluded with them rigging a literary award in order to get him released early, creating the horrifying situation where one of the only two people who voted against him on the prize committee was Jewish – because their fascist friend not only took precedence over a fair decision, but also over the lives and fresh trauma of Jews. America has to reckon with this ugly aspect of its literary history, among other things, in order to ever seriously understand why the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting happened. Trump and the Tree of Life shooter are merely tips of the iceberg – monstrous as they are.

This is beyond ridiculous. Trump has family that is Jewish, and when they converted he embraced their choice. Hardly the actions of a “nazi”.

Hitler was named “Man of the Year” in 1938 by Time Magazine. They noted Hitler’s anti-capitalistic economic policies:

“Most cruel joke of all, however, has been played by Hitler Camp; Co. on those German capitalists and small businessmen who once backed National Socialism as a means of saving Germany’s bourgeois economic structure from radicalism. The Nazi credo that the individual belongs to the state also applies to business. Some businesses have been confiscated outright, on other what amounts to a capital tax has been levied. Profits have been strictly controlled. Some idea of the increasing Governmental control and interference in business could be deduced from the fact that 80% of all building and 50% of all industrial orders in Germany originated last year with the Government. Hard-pressed for food- stuffs as well as funds, the Nazi regime has taken over large estates and in many instances collectivized agriculture, a procedure fundamentally similar to Russian Communism.”
(Source: Time Magazine; January 2, 1939.)

Minted on the edge of all the silver 2 and 5 Reichsmark coins of Nazi Germany is “Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz” which translates roughly to “The community comes before the individual”.

What political parties ideology is best described by this inscription?

This is beyond ridiculous.

What’s beyond ridiculous is that you have the nerve to make this comment about this article right before vomiting a bunch of specious arguments into the comment section.

Trump has family that is Jewish, and when they converted he embraced their choice. Hardly the actions of a “nazi”.

Hitler had a Jewish doctor who he personally helped escape the Holocaust. Individual actions of kindness toward individual Jews do not negate a person’s war on Jews.

Plus, Chaim Ramkowski was also Jewish. Kapos were also Jewish. Josephus was also Jewish. This is one of the most tired fallacies used to dismiss all possible criticism of discrimination.

Hitler was named “Man of the Year” in 1938 by Time Magazine.

Trump was named Man of the Year in 2016 by Time Magazine, and he loves the magazine so much that he used to pass around a fake cover naming him Man of the Year. What’s your point?

(irrelevant nonsense comparing Nazis to Bolsheviks)

Who’s advocating Bolshevik communism here? Is anyone advocating it at all? Certainly no one who is relevant in U.S. politics.

Minted on the edge of all the silver 2 and 5 Reichsmark coins of Nazi Germany is “Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz” which translates roughly to “The community comes before the individual”.

What political parties ideology is best described by this inscription?

This is a perfect example of Reductio ad Hitlerum. There’s nothing remarkable about believing the community comes before the individual; that’s one of the oldest political beliefs and the basis of many societies around the world. In Judaism itself, there are numerous laws about what individuals should refrain from doing in order not to harm the community as a whole. That’s not remarkable, and this is where “reductio ad Hitlerum” is a fallacy.

Racism, concentration camps, anti-immigrant sentiment, and literal applauding of Nazis for marching against Jews and murdering an anti-racist protester, though? Attacks on the press, rallying the people against enemies within? Talking about international conspiracies of “globalists” and “cultural Marxists” and “the Deep State”? That’s the part where Hitler comparisons start actually being relevant. That’s the part where there starts being a distinction between fascists and the many other political movements that exist.
