New Kasich Web Ad Not So Subtly Insinuates Trump is a Nazi

New Kasich Web Ad Not So Subtly Insinuates Trump is a Nazi

Godwin’s Law strikes again

Nazis. Nazis are now part of the presidential discussion and John Kasich is to blame.

A new web ad released by Ohio Governor Kasich Wednesday attacks Donald Trump’s “dangerous rhetoric.”

The ad goes:

“You might not care if Donald Trump says Muslims should register with their government, because you’re not one. And you might not care if Donald Trump says he’s going to round up all the Hispanic immigrants, because you’re not one. And you might not care if Donald Trump says it’s okay to rough up black protesters, because you’re not one. And you might not care if Donald Trump wants to suppress journalists, because you’re not one. But think about this: If he keeps going, and he actually becomes president, he might just get around to you. And you better hope there’s someone left to help you.”

Sound familiar? As National Review’s Jim Geraghty pointed out, the ad dialogue is modeled after Pastor Martin Niemoller’s famous poem:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

With Trump campaigning in Kasich’s backyard, the squabble between the two candidates escalated over the past week resulting in a fabulously tacky Twitter spat.

According to Cincinnati local news, Ohio Democrats are loving the public Republican feud:

Republican leaders said Trump is taking it too far. Some said his rants are hurting them, especially when he attacks someone from their own party.

Some Democrats are basically thanking Trump.

“I’m loving it,” said Hamilton County Democratic Chair Tim Burke. Burke said Trump’s Twitter rant is just what his party ordered. “Obviously, from a Democratic standpoint, the more that the Republicans can fight with one another and insult each other, the better off it is for us.”

Still true:


Nazis. Thanks, Kasich.

First, we have the Nazi fallacies, as you note (i.e. “Godwin’s Law”).

Next, we have the sheer desperation this whole commercial displays.

Finally, we have the fact that they use “First they came….” as if people who love Trump will transform their view of him into a Hitler-demon because he is not PC but acts and speaks his mind on anything and everything. Clue to the clueless: that is why his supporters LOVE him!!

Do they REALLY think this will take Trump down?! He will probably get even HIGHER in the polls, and get MORE unsolicited donations because of this.

Kasich should just withdraw from the race. Now. Before he beclowns himself any further.

The desperate cries of the GOP establishment. If only they worried more about saving the country than they do about saving their political jobs. Gov is the largest employer of the inept, incompetent, moronic, dishonest and corrupt.

Kasich is one of the few guys in the race I like even less than Trump.

I’m not a Trump supporter but at moments like this I feel obligated to become one.

As for this… “And you better hope there’s someone left to help you.” This is unintentionally both hilarious and damning. For if you follow the logic, or simply draw parallels with the actual totalitarian inroads of Obama, in what way has Kasich or the RINO imperium he represents done A SINGLE THING to help us?

Kasich is a moronic mean spirited little turd. So much so that he is more liberal democrat than he is republican. I have had it up to my knee caps with this tiny little man with the typical chips on his shoulders.

    Perfect description.

    but but but … he’s a Christian doncha know.

    You didn’t know that? I suppose you didn’t know his daddy delivered junk mail for the govt, either.

    Just stand near him for 4-5 minutes – you’ll hear both of those at least once.

Islamists? ILLEGAL immigrants? “Black lives matter”? THAT is Kasich’s constituents? No wonder he is at ONE percent. I guess Ohio hasn’t figured out how to get foreigners and illegal aliens REGISTERED TO VOTE and thats why Kasich is lagging in the polls. Actually Kasich is just there to help out Jeb! by splitting the vote. Kasich hasn’t even bothered to sign up for most primarys.

My suggestion:

Mr. Kasich, drop from the race. Now!

If you are so worried about Trump running for President, get out of the way. Work to support Cruz, or Carson, or Rubio, but get out of the darn way. Moron.

I guess this means it is official. Kasich’s campaign is in its death throes.

Where did Trump say he was for registering all Muslims? I thought he wanted to keep track of the refugees. That is total slander.

    As I understand it, it was the reporter’s idea, Trump responded to the question about illegal immigration, but the report and media outlets just reported it like Trump wants all muslims tracked.

      PhillyGuy in reply to Dejectedhead. | November 25, 2015 at 1:06 pm

      The mean season has begun. Lies and half-truths..are all welcome.

      Milhouse in reply to Dejectedhead. | November 28, 2015 at 7:43 pm

      Not quite. The reporter put it to him, and at first he didn’t address the , so the reporter followed up and asked again whether Trump would implement that, and Trump answered that yes, he absolutely would. The referent of “that” in the reporter’s question is quite clear; he was following up on his previous question. And “that” is what Trump

      Milhouse in reply to Dejectedhead. | November 28, 2015 at 7:47 pm

      Oops. Not sure what happened there. Trying again:

      Not quite. The reporter put it to him, and at first he didn’t address the question, so the reporter put it again, and this time Trump answered that yes, he “absolutely would implement that”. The referent of “that” in the reporter’s question is quite clear; he was following up on his previous question. But Trump’s following refuse to hear it, and pretend that by “that” he meant the last thing he had said, rather than what the reporter was asking him. It won’t wash. He said it and he meant it, until someone explained to him why it’s bad, and now he’s pretending he didn’t say it.

I remember when Kasich was conservative. It’s been awhile, the 90s, but he was once viewed as a young and intelligent conservative with a great future. He somehow got corrupted along the way, or was always a fraud.

Shameful last acts of a dying campaign … make that “dead” campaign.

Despite the DC Media’s best efforts to take him out, Trump appears to be gaining support from a public that no longer trusts the DC Media, and for an endless supply of very good reasons.

Trump has slipped a bit since mid-week, when he rose to as high as 43%. Regardless, his closest competition is Texas Senator Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97%, who is a whopping 26 points away at just 12%.

Above is according to the Reuters 5 day rolling average poll. Trump exceeded 40% for several days as I predicted he would right after Paris.

Some heads here at LI will continue to explode as reality continues to force its way into their make believe worlds.

I can just hear some of them now. Listen carefully and you can hear them to….

….”But but but Trump is an oligarch and secret democrat and evil and why can’t you people see my hallucinations and lies for the truth they are in my mind… Damn you people to hell damn you all… I’m going to hold my breath and call you names and make funny spellings out of your names.. that will surely show you my genius and persuade you to repent…yeah that’s the ticket.”

    T-rump is no respecter of the First Amendment.

    T-rump is anti-Conservative.

    I don’t care if you support T-rump or not. Just don’t lie.

        Ragspierre in reply to Gary Britt. | November 25, 2015 at 1:50 pm

        Just note how many of your blind faith “points” are predicated on…well…blind faith.

        And a completely delusional ignorance of the points I stated.

          Your so called “points” are not facts just your personal subjective blind faith opinions. Nothing more.

          Ragspierre in reply to Ragspierre. | November 25, 2015 at 3:52 pm


          OK. Now refute them. Each. With your support.

          Because I can…and HAVE…supported each with FACTS.


          It isn’t always possible to refute yours or anyones blind faith opinions. That is why its called “faith”.

          But just for fun lets take your often repeated purjorative line that Trump is an Oligarch.

          Oxford english dictionary says an Oligarch is one of the rulers in the form of government known as an oligarchy. A form of government that is sort of a group dictatorship by a small group of people.

          Since the USA is a republic and Trump is not one of its dictatorial rulers then it is by definition that he can not be an oligarch and your blind faith expression that he is one is demonstrably false and incorrect. Just like all the rest of your opinions which you confuse in your mind for facts.

          “Oligarch” you keep using that word. I don’t think it means what you think it means.

          If you are going to call people liars for pointing your opinions are not facts you need to make sure you are actually correct. Otherwise you just show yourself to be a stupid fool.

          Ragspierre in reply to Ragspierre. | November 25, 2015 at 5:38 pm

          Wow, Gary (the liar) Britt, your use of words is as tight and restrictive as you thong must be.

          Full Definition of OLIGARCHY
          : government by the few
          : a government in which a small group exercises control especially for corrupt and selfish purposes; also : a group exercising such control
          : an organization under oligarchic control

          According to you, there are no Russian oligarchs, huh?

          Gawd, what an idiot!

          Ragspierre in reply to Ragspierre. | November 25, 2015 at 5:42 pm

          Definition of oligarch in English:
          1A ruler in an oligarchy.
          Example sentences
          2(Especially in Russia) a very rich businessman with a great deal of political influence.

          You can’t even lie well about your lies.

          Since Mr. Trump is not Russian and doesn’t have significant political influence with federal government like a Russian Oligarch so second alternative definition does not apply. Continuing to call people liars for exposing your failures of reading comprehension and logic just makes you look even a bigger fool.

          The fact is your “facts” are not facts just your foolish opinion.

      clafoutis in reply to Ragspierre. | November 25, 2015 at 2:03 pm

      Actions speak louder than words.

      Trump’s demonstrating what he can do to turn America around.

      Candidate Trump is not frivolously blowing tens of millions into the wind. He speaks his mind, demonstrates keen instincts, and isn’t afraid to negotiate.

      While he’s running his campaign like a successful business enterprise, most of the other candidates’ are tripping up over their own insincere rhetoric, hypocrisy, and ineptitude.

        Ragspierre in reply to clafoutis. | November 25, 2015 at 2:25 pm

        “Actions speak louder than words.”

        They certainly DO.

        And T-rump’s actions over an entire lifetime evince everything I’ve noted about him.

        Conversely, all you’ve got from Duh Donald in THIS guise is WORDS. Nothing more. And a LOT of those words are not his words. See his immigration “plan” and his tax “plan”. And THIS guise is in conflict with his PREVIOUS pretenses.

          Ah, the voice of reason? Really? Yep, your opinion of Trump is yours to have and hold! Do comprehend that others do differ from you. Horrors, sheer pain, uff da!

          Ok, get off your duff and push harder for Cruz, and allow the market place of ideas determine the GOP nominee winner. Cuz, to date, you’re pushing the GOPe line, even when you don’t realize that!

          😉 Peace! Out!

          clafoutis in reply to Ragspierre. | November 25, 2015 at 2:54 pm

          Ragman, you’re wrong.

          However, if you insist on railing, take Wright’s advise and redirect all that energy of yours toward something positive.

      PhillyGuy in reply to Ragspierre. | November 25, 2015 at 5:21 pm

      T-rump is leading Cruz head-to-head 57% – 43% so I guess The Donald is showing Ted the Magnificent his rump.

Kasich is still running? Is anybody aware of that?

Has anyone ever come across a single person who said they supported Kasich, even as a second choice? I haven’t.

Why would Kasich’s campaign think this would help him?
I don’t get it? His last debate performance sealed his fate with the grassroots voters! He is toast!
Save your money, you are not going to damage Trump with stupid TV commercials!

Why vote kasich when the real McCoys are on the Democratic ticket?

Nobody even knows who Kasich is. It’s inevitably, “Kasich? Who?”

In fact, in keeping with the “punctuation as part of my official name” game that his buddy Jeb! started, this guy needs to be officially deemed Kasich?

And then hopefully we can consign both of them to the realms of “bad ideas in presidential politics that fortunately never came to anything”.

This putz is channeling his inner boehner.

this has to say something about Trump being the best candidate for the office in 2016

when he is the only one who drives the left batshit crazy and absolute into a state of fear and panic. You don’t get this with Ted Cruz or any of the other candidates, do you?

y’know state of fear and panic by the left… should help to boost Trump’s ratings even more…

Worse than a Democrat.

Pardon me, is this your knife in my back?

C’mon folks, it’s Thanksgiving, and this is America! Be thankful that Ragspierre can’t ruin your meal in person and that your operating system includes a scroll bar to pass up his frothing at the mouth ding-dong posts 🙂
