The similarities between the MAGA movement and the rise of fascism in 1930s Germany are too obvious to deny. Donald Trump has not been the least bit subtle about his aspirations to dictatorship. It’s what his denial of the 2020 presidential election results is all about.
Despite the clear parallels between Hitler’s Nazi regime and what Trump and his cult followers yearn for, Fox News continues to pretend that no such associations exist. They ignore Trump’s frequent expressions of admiration for, and envy of, murderous tyrants like Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un, Xi Jinping, and Viktor Orbán.
According to Fox News, anyone who observes the resemblance of Trump’s MAGA cult to the Third Reich is delusional. And that recurring narrative by Fox was evident in their response to some recent comments by Hillary Clinton. At an event in Texas on Friday, Clinton connected the dictator dots, and it so disturbed Fox News that they broke into their live airing of “The Five” to berate her for it (video below). She said that…
“I remember as a young student, you know, trying to figure out, how did people get basically brought in by Hitler. How did that happen? And I’d watch newsreels and I’d see this guy standing up there ranting and raving, and people shouting and raising their arms. I thought, ‘What’s happened to these people? Why did they believe that?’
“You saw the rally in Ohio the other night, Trump up there ranting and raving for more than an hour, and you have these rows of young men with their arms raised. I thought, what is going on?”
Upon the return to the program’s panel, co-host Jesse Watters immediately dismissed reality saying “Did guys you see a Hitler salute at a Trump rally. I missed that.” Apparently Watters wasn’t paying very close attention. Or more likely, he was deliberately lying. Here is what he claims not to seen any sign of…

In addition to the criticism by the Trump-fluffers on “The Five,” Fox News published an article on their website that included a response by Trump’s spokesman, Taylor Budowich, who complained that Clinton was “using some of the most disgusting smears imaginable,” and was “pathetic” and “divisive.” Notably, he was unable to refute the accuracy of Clinton’s remarks. Perhaps because they described Trump and his glassy-eyed cult followers so accurately. Which is precisely what makes Fox News so appalled at her for having had the courage to speak out.
