Trump haters in higher education are only emboldened. They will never let go of this.

Professor: The term ‘Nazi’ is ‘not strong enough’ to describe Trump supporters

A women’s and gender studies professor from Massachusetts’ Smith College believes the term “Nazi” is not strong enough a word to describe those “who brazenly claim they are simply patriots with different opinions.”

Now that Joe Biden has been sworn in as the 46th president, Loretta Ross notes in CounterPunch that post-World War II Nazis faced the Nuremburg Trials in order to “send a warning to the world” … and those who managed to escape justice essentially became non-entities.

The prof wants Trump-supporting Republicans, whom she dubs “American Nazis who adapted the playbook of the Third Reich,” to face something similar. This means anyone associated with the “attempted criminal coup” at the U.S. Capitol on January 6 … and more.

“This includes Nazified people in Congress, in the media, in universities, in regular jobs, and throughout society because fascism is not the fevered dream of one delusional man,” Ross writes. “Trump is a white supremacist; that he is also a deranged narcissist is really incidental.”…

From the piece:

Republicans are no longer entitled to exist as a legitimate political party because this authoritarian backlash has been building since new Civil Rights laws were passed in 1964 and 1965 in response to white racist violence captured on TV that required the National Guard to quell. Then-President Lyndon Johnson predicted that most white people would flee the Democratic Party to join the pro-segregationist, anti-feminist, and anti-gay revanchist political movement of George Wallace, Richard Nixon, and Ronald Reagan. Every undemocratically selected Republican president since the 1960s (by an electoral college designed to be disenfranchising) has failed to repudiate this neo-fascist wing of their party. …

The term “Nazi” is not even strong enough to convey the opprobrium and disgust human rights activists feel for those who brazenly claim they are simply patriots with different opinions.
