Ruth Ben-Ghiat: To many, it felt like a threshold had been passed on Wednesday night at Donald Trump's 2020 campaign rally in Greenville, North Carolina. I have seen this kind of expression before. In fact, I'd seen it that afternoon, as I watched a newsreel of Benito Mussolini standing before a crowd of cheering Italian Fascists in Rome.
Hitler wasn't a bad fellow, he was just misunderstood and unfairly judged.
The DR usual alt-right (R)tards
What this "exposure" is doing is ensuring the squad's reelection.
Most clear thinking Americans know this.
The only difference between Trump's rhetoric and Hillary's rhetoric in 2016 was the size of the crowds.
Banner is highlighting the Democrats new rhetoric; "Hitler! Mussolini! Dictator!" which is just more-same political rhetoric.
In the end, it's a bunch of emotionally appealing political rhetoric. Democrats should focus on energizing policies and ways to pay for it.
Both parties are trying to build cults and cult followers. Some of the zombies post here.

Trump is following the same methodology that Americans were warned about by the US Army in the late 1940's. The same one that successfully propelled multiple authoritarian regimes to power and kept them there in the last 100 years.
For those who say it can't happen here, it can happen anywhere. We're all human, and follow the same basic behaviours. It's happening as we watch, and as we bicker amongst ourselves.
"Don't be a sucker" - an excellent and clear analysis and exposé of the mechanisms used.

Yes - EXACTLY, that is why he is doing it. I find it funny that Dems think this is a good thing for their party. AOC has a 100% safe seat unless she is re-districted out of it. It is not going GOP. However - given the Squad is toxic to most Americans - and importantly - the middle class working people that the Dems need to flip to win in 2020 - keeping them in the limelight and the face of the Democrat party is the smart thing to do. 4D chess vs. checkers.
