Biden Compares Trump To Nazi Goebbels, As Dems Scream About ‘Reichstag’
WaPo: “This is not a drill. The Reichstag is burning.”
Democrats have spent months pressing Joe Biden not to concede the election, in Hillary Clinton’s words, “under any circumstances.” They’ve been war-gaming what to do if President Trump wins the election by winning the Electoral College (and losing the meaningless popular vote). They’ve made it quite clear that the only acceptable result to them is a Biden win.
If there’s one thing we can count on from Democrats and the left, it’s projection. Whatever they are accusing Republicans of, you can be almost certain, they are busily doing or plotting the very thing.
Biden appeared in an MSNBC interview and compared Trump to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.
Godwin’s Law is officially dead, I guess, since Democrats keep screeching that Trump and his supporters are all “Nazis.” With the Democrat presidential candidate joining in, we’ve reached a new low in political discourse.
There appears to be some sort of coordination among Democrats and their media mouthpieces. Take, for example, Dana Milbank’s hyperbolic lunacy about Trump’s Reichstag moment. Try not to laugh, he’s serious, and I suspect we can learn quite a bit about what the left is really contemplating should they achieve the power to do so.
From the Washington Post (archive link):
For five years, my colleagues and I have taken pains to avoid Nazi comparisons. It is usually hyperbolic, and counterproductive, to label the right “fascists” in the way those on the right reflexively label the left “socialists.” But this is no longer a matter of name-calling.
With his repeated refusals this week to accept the peaceful transfer of power — the bedrock principle that has sustained American democracy for 228 years — President Trump has put the United States, in some ways, where Germany was in 1933, when Adolf Hitler used the suspicious burning of the German parliament to turn a democracy into a totalitarian state.
Overwrought, you say? Then ask Yale historian Timothy Snyder, a top authority on Nazism and Stalinism. “The Reichstag has been on a slow burn since June,” he told me. “The language Trump uses to talk about Black Lives Matter and the protests is very similar to the language Hitler used — that there’s some vague left-wing conspiracy based in the cities that is destroying the country.”
. . . . “It’s important not to talk about this as just an election,” Snyder said. “It’s an election surrounded by the authoritarian language of a coup d’etat. The opposition has to win the election and it has to win the aftermath of the election.”
If not? There won’t be another “normal” election for some time, he said. But that doesn’t have to happen, and Snyder is optimistic it won’t. To avoid it, we voters must turn out in overwhelming numbers to deal Trump a lopsided defeat. The military must hold to its oath. Homeland Security police must not serve as Trump’s brownshirts. And we citizens must take to the streets, peacefully but indefinitely, until the will of the people prevails.
The left—who not only state they will not accept a Trump win but are openly planning to pack the Supreme Court, add two new states to shore up a Senate majority, and demolish the Electoral College—is leaping on this craziness as if it has meaning or is in any way tethered to reality.
Of course, they have not an ounce of self-awareness about who is really seeking “total power” and which lies they keep repeating hoping they are believed.
With Trump trailing in the polls, he's getting increasingly desperate. We should all be ready for his version of the Reichstag Fire, Hitler's pretext for seizing total power. https://t.co/TcqLgbndjH

It is just a waste of breath to address the Dems at this point. Their lust for power is so strong that they have lost all reason. Eight years of Obama was such a paradise lost for them that they can’t function as rational people any longer.
The Democrats haven’t been rational for at least two generations, arguably longer. At this point they’ve gone past irrational into rabid, and should be responded to appropriately.
Car Plows Through Trump Supporters At BLM Protest In California, Police Charge Driver With Attempted Murder
notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital pointed out that the driver has been charged with attempted murder.
What does the DA have to say about that?
when Adolf Hitler used the suspicious burning of the German parliament to turn a democracy into a totalitarian state.
It took a little more than that.
Hint: a blatantly fraudulent election had something to do with it. Well, a referendum, actually, approving of Adolph’s unconstitutional assumption of the president’s office. Won that one by 90%. The popular vote was no more secure back then than it is today.
The power grab after the Reichstag fire was entirely constitutional. Disastrous, but legal.
Here’s another hint: to avoid power grabs after fires, don’t start so many fires.
Not to mention, that he wasn’t even a German citizen at first: being an Austrian by birth, he asked the Austrian government to be released from Austrian citizenship (which they happily did) – with Hitler becoming stateless. It took several years to finnaly mad him a German citizen. Nevertheless, his rise to power took several years as well – which the Democrats are trying to reduce to just a few days/a singe event (like nominating a SCOTUS judge)…
‘finally made’ – a Freudian slip maybe??? 😉
The left yammers on about a Reichstag fire, when what they have created a dumpster fire.
And there is is. Their words are losing any real meaning. Racist, xenophobe, bigot etc. etc. etc. biden is nothing if not a serial liar, but I can stick to that opinion without invoking the nazis. Not much left in the democrat quiver at this point.
The vile Dhimmi-crats have the unbelievable gall the invoke fallacious and despicable references to German National Socialism, in order to slander conservatives, when it is the Dhimmi-crats’ own goose-stepping brownshirts in “Anti-fa” and in “Black Lives Matter” who are desecrating and vandalizing synagogues, in 21st-century America, stepping into the shoes of their National Socialist predecessors. Think about it — Dhimmi-crats dare to vandalize and desecrate American Jews’ holy places, and, then, turn around and claim that the opposition represents German National Socialism? To hell with these people — they are evil, and, they are liars.
Also, it is the Dhimmi-crat Party that welcomes unabashed and gleeful Jew-haters and jihadist Israel-bashers — black Jew-haters, Muslim Jew-haters and “progressive” Jew-haters — into its ranks.
The Dhimmi-crats should be careful about making flippant and fallacious references to German National Socialism, because, they are the only political party in the U.S. that is imitating the attitudes of German National Socialists.
When these clowns wring their hands and invoke “democracy,” replace it with “Democrats” to see what they really mean.
Try it, it works every time.
Flag on the play for multiple Godwin’s law violations… Spare me the sophomoric histrionics. The sky is not falling, and they know it. Democrats suck.
Trump is cutting into the black, Jewish and Cuban vote in Florida so now all of Slow Joe’s rants are punctuated with “racist”, “Hitler” and now “Castro”. references. Puppets don’t have brains.
He is losing those voters and simply won’t face the reasons why. So he can’t address them with serious, intelligent analysis and arguments trying to WIN the voters back with persuasion. He just reaches into the toilet for floating things to hurl. Such is their disdain for us voters. Unfortunately, many of us ARE that stupid.
Parrots, all squawking the same slogans.
Joe must of said this before 9am lid time
Lid time. When just one doobie won’t do!
Strictly medicinal, I’m sure.
Yeah, man… totally.
The downtick is mine and not intentional.
“Biden Compares Trump To Nazi Goebbels, As Dems Scream About ‘Reichstag’”
Yet these looney Leftists want me to be outraged at the twaddle Trump tweets on twitter.
I seriously imagined the hour before DJT was announced as the new President I would be in Happy Camp by 2020.
The Dems campaign is similar to putting a board fence around a vacant lot and plastering it with artists renditions of what the building inside will look like. In the first place, there is nothing inside the fence. And, if anything ever does get built, it rarely resembles the drawing on the outside of the fence.
The Dems always make the claim that their opponents are going to take “free” stuff away from thee people. The warn about cuts in Social Security, Medicare, school lunches, etc. They claim that this will result in people dying. They claim that their opponent are racists, misogynists, homophobes, xenophobes liars and crooks. This election cycle is different only in the fact that the Dems have NO options to present on what matters to real people. So they triple down on the spurious ad hominem attacks. Business as usual for the Dems.
If you average out the mendacity and intelligence of the left, the mendacity of the leadership is off the charts high and the intelligence of the rank and file is borderline mentally retarded.
I’d be embarassed to be a rank and file dem. They’re idiots. I mean this in the clinical sense. Of course, idiots lack self-awareness, so what can you do….
We must destroy the rule of law to save it
We must destroy the Constitution to save it
We must destroy the country to save it
Reichstag Moments? The smell of charred cities is on their hands. The smell of a charred church in DC and of vandalized synagogues is on their hands.
PlanYourVote a la Planned Parenthood? Decapitate, eviscerate, disembowel, perhaps a Mengele (i.e. clinical cannibalism) treatment and redistribute her profitable parts. Yeah, the abortion chambers and Mengele clinics persisted, progressed under a veil of privacy. A wicked solution.
To the best of my knowledge, every incumbent president who has won re-election has done so by receiving more actual votes than his opponent.
I see no reason to think Donald Trump will be an exception.
I thought Clinton only received a plurality. Am I wrong?
He was in a three-way race with Dole and Perot, but still received more votes than either.
There is no significant third candidate in 2020.
And that 3rd candidate in 2016 drew a lot of votes away from Trump. Trump’s actions in the last 4 years have been more consistent with the Libertarian ideas than the Rinos so I would expect those Libertarian voters to gladly go with a Trump vote ths time rather than a large Libertarian “protest” vote like 2016. In Ohio alone, that would have pulled 4 of the 8, of 88, counties that did not go for Trump in 2016 over to red.
I would even argue that many people in solidly pro-Trump states felt safe voting Libertarian (or other minor party) in 2016 precisely because they were certain their states’ Electoral Votes would still put Trump over the top regardless.
This year, as you say, most of those voters will certainly come home and support the President without reservation.
According to Ballotpedia, Clinton received less than 50% of the vote in the 1996 General Election.
There is an ad featuring Trump in the Oval Office with boy scouts, and the caption is “file a suit, hold them accountable”. Them are not named, are the trans/homosexual males who molested boys in a politically congruent (“=”) climate. I wonder if Alphabet/Google review their ads before publishing. Interesting NYT-style close association a la Palin/Giffords. Perhaps another Planned Politician choice to remove the Trump “burden” h/t Obama. A clever turn of Goebbels, but they are playing with a double-edged scalpel.
XM’s ad-based channels are full of ads for some ambulance chaser firm, looking for abuse plaintiffs.
What is notable about the ads is the emphasis on the “billions” the BSA allegedly has.
My own comment: I doubt there is a single solitary youth organization, whether well-known or something local, that doesn’t have abuse going on. Not a single solitary one. I certainly don’t condone it, I am making an observation.
I’m so old I can remember when criminal conduct was committed by individuals who were then subject to criminal penalties. This business of turning crimes into a payday at the expense of organizations that didn’t commit any crimes, I’m not sure how a civilization withstands its logical conclusion.
As far as I know, the BSA got rid of the ones caught. This is in contrast with another organization that whisks the problem away and moved it elsewhere. I won’t mention this organization but to say they hide behind very high and thick walls in Italy.
“Godwin’s Law is officially dead”
Not at all, in fact validated once again. The premise of Godwin’s Law is that resorting to Nazi comparisons was proof of a weak or non-existent rational basis for one’s position, and the best you could do was name calling with about the worst name one could invoke . What is depressing is the hate within so many- TDS – that blinds so many otherwise intelligent people from rational thought and discussion. We all have long time friends with TDS. But for them to support the Dems after this summer- and just wait for the SCOTUS confirmation!- show the power of learned, encouraged hate. Sad.
Sad but the desire to continue the genocide of the unborn is driving all this. Do not doubt this. These people are monsters.
I just finished reading, “Dead Wake, The Last Crossing of the Lusitania”. The sinking of the Lusitania by the Germans in 1915 resulted in 1,198 civilian dead with only 761 survivors. The Lusitania was unarmed, the passengers were civilians with a large number of women and children onboard. I find it telling that the Dems are dredging up another German event to describe President Trump when in reality their behavior is more like that of the Germans who sank this unarmed ship. The Dems through their provoking of the riots and destruction are causing innocent people to lose their homes, their businesses and their loved ones. The Dems give no thought to what they have done, the only vow to do more if they do not get their way. This is like the Germans who after they sank the Lusitania went on a rampage in 1917 where their submarines sank any vessel they found out on the ocean. One in four of the ships departing Britain during that campaign were sunk. This savage assault on the innocents resulted in the US finally entering the war which lead to Germany’s defeat.
The dems don’t care about the innocent lives they ruin. They care about power and they have shown they will do anything to retain it. History will not remember them kindly.
The Lusitania may not be a great analogy. “Unarmed” is correct but with hardpoints to place guns per the requirement of the Admiralty. However, while unarmed she was carrying military supplies.. ammunition and explosives which made her a legal target for the Kriegsmarine. Exploratory dives to the wreck have confirmed that munitions were onboard.
This may be why she sank so quickly from that reported second explosion. While a legal target and with the legal warning by Germany in the NYT, its sinking was a disaster for Germany.
It is usually hyperbolic, and counterproductive, to label the right “fascists” in the way those on the right reflexively label the left “socialists.”
The difference being that they are socialists (or worse).
“The language Trump uses to talk about Black Lives Matter and the protests is very similar to the language Hitler used — that there’s some vague left-wing conspiracy based in the cities that is destroying the country.”
Nothing vague about it. We see their banners in the streets and hear them chant their slogans. We’ve watched nationally-prominent members of the Democrat party give it their endorsement and egg it on, and we’ve identified the people bankrolling it.
What does their stated intent to “burn it all down” mean if not the destruction of the country?
Jerry Nadler and the like will claim it’s all a myth, but we prefer to believe our lying eyes.
Hitler took drugs to control his Parkinson Disease and just to function as der Fuhrer. Sounds like Biden is doing the same thing. Big Smile baby.
Biden’s probably right, in that a repeated lie does become truth, at least on that side of the news funnel. The left, for instance.
I don’t know that it was Goebbel’s idea but he certainly popularized it as a useful sound bite.
The internal polling is likely driving these extreme situations of projection by d and MSM allies. They realize Trump is very likely to be re-elected. They are making these claims to:
1. Try and up d enthusiasm
2. Potentially sway the gullible
3. Distract from d election shenanigans
4. Provide cover post election day as d argue to count large numbers of questionable ballots
5. Keep their base, the MSM and partisan govt employees focused and ready to attempt to hamstring a Trump 2nd term as much or more than his 1st term
. . .

“Of course, they have not an ounce of self-awareness about who is really seeking ‘total power’ and which lies they keep repeating hoping they are believed.”
Perfect comment in reply to Milbank and Snyder, and their idiotic, historically depraved observations and beliefs.
If you’re a hammer, all you see are nails: if you’re a Lefty, all you see in the masses of unaligned automatons are threats to your inexorable, progressive-to-radical, border-erasing program for all humanity.
Trumps’s American Economic-Populist Nationalism is the worst possible model of such threats: it empowers brave and free-thinking individuals to very much doubt and distrust the Left’s solely utopian pitch and platforms; and if the Left demands anything, it is obedience to its tyrannical, authoritarian, totalistic demands and agenda. It’s that or the guillotine, its history consistently shows.
The Reichstag Fire is a fantasy. Its imagery is an attempt to portray the “Communists” as everywhere except where they actually are: in America’s own big cities today, burning down the competition, at the Left’s behest, to their fascistic, big-corporation-cum-state, wet, but repeatedly disproved, wilted dream.
Yet another “W” RINO endorses Biden.
I will never apologize for voting 3rd party so many times after Reagan retired. These guys are not only as bad as the Dems but worse because of their spineless hypocrisy.
I many have re-registered Republican to vote for Trump but I am NOT a Republican so long as the GOP continues to fight Trump. I will again be an unaffiliated independent on November 4. Hopefully, Trump will clear the decks of RINOs in his second term to redefine the GOP and give me a reason to be a Republican again. Pasadena Rule will continue to be in effect until then.
When you watch one source of “news” and socialize with only people in your limited knowledge of reality, you believe this kind of crap.
Sickest of all, are the pelosis and bidens creating the lies.
We live in 2 Americas. We ought to divide the country and be done with it. Our side will be a lot happier, and their side will be happier too – for about a week, till it all implodes on them. But we’ll be out of it.
Do you really want to share a nation with these freaks? Let’s get out while we can.
If the Reichstag is burning, it’s the Democrats’ street thugs in Antifa, #BLM, etc., who are burning it.
