Rep. Clyburn Tells Fox News Viewers All About How Trump and MAGA Resemble Germany in the 1930’s

In the closing days of the 2022 midterm elections, Democrats have been making the case that the Republican Party is putting American democracy at risk with their baseless election denialism and outright refusal to accept any election results wherein they are the losers.

Donald Trump, Adolf Hitler

President Biden made that case in an address to the nation this week. He Spoke in stark terms about the fragility of democracy and he didn’t shy away from the root cause…

“Recent polls have shown that an overwhelming majority of Americans believe our democracy at — is at risk, that our democracy is under threat. They too see that democracy is on the ballot this year, and they’re deeply concerned about it.” […]

“American democracy is under attack because the defeated former President of the United States refuses to accept the results of the 2020 election. He refuses to accept the will of the people. He refuses to accept the fact that he lost.”

Biden isn’t the only political figure to notice the peril our nation faces from people who who don’t respect the will of the people or the law. On Sunday Democratic Rep. Jim Clyburn was interviewed on Fox News by Shannon Bream. And in spite of Bream’s loaded questions and interruptions, he delivered a righteous sermon directly to the Fox News flock of Trumpian cult disciples (video below).

Bream: You’ve repeatedly made comments about Hitler, about Nazism, about Germany in the 1930’s, in recent years. You’ve gotten a lot of pushback from that from Jewish organization and others who way that it belittles the suffering of the Holocaust, of the millions who were lost. Your response.

Clyburn: I’ve talked to many Jews. There are many Jews in my congressional district. And they are supporters of mine. They know that this is the stuff that causes those kinds of deterioration to democracy. This was not anything about how difficult it was.

I’ve talked about slavery and how difficult it was. But to discuss the facts of what’s going on here – election deniers setting up procedures by which rule committees by governors can overturn the results of election; to call the press ‘the enemy of the people;’ to coopt evangelicals. I grew up in the Christian faith, grew up in a parsonage, born and raised in a parsonage. I know a whole lot about religion, and I know that there is always an attempt to co-opt religion, and that is what’s going on here.

If people want to deny it, that’s fine, but the facts are very clear. I’ve studied history all of my life. I taught history. And I’m telling you, what I see here are parallels to what the history was in this world back in the 1930s in Germany.

Bream: Are voters, though, out there listening to this message to infer from what you’re saying that if they don’t vote for Democrats in this election that they are somehow supporting something akin to the rise of Hitler?

Clyburn: No. If they don’t vote against election deniers. If they don’t vote against liars, people who lie, know full well they’re lying, we all know they’re lying. This was the cleanest election in the history of the country. Donald Trump’s own appointee said it was the cleanest in the history of the country.

Clyburn made exactly the right point. He drew a distinction between voting for Republicans, and voting for election deniers. The former were once a legitimate political party with arguably principled views from a conservative perspective. The latter is what the GOP has become: A party devoted to a wannabe tyrant who brazenly lies to acquire and retain power and wealth. Clyburn also correctly noted that Trump’s own officials had told him that … well, them tell it…

Clyburn’s message is one that Fox News viewers need to hear. Will it have any effect on their views of Trump and Biden and America? Probably not in any broad based manner. But they still need to near it. They need to know that they aren’t fooling anyone if they choose to continue to support the fascism of the Trumpian GOP. And they need know that they will someday pay a price for it.

In the meantime, there is some small hope that a few of them can be peeled off from mob and see the light. But Democrats and independents cannot rely on them. They need to turn out in massive numbers on election day to avoid sending this country down the path that brought so much suffering and ruin to Germany and the world nearly a century ago.

  1. Bless you, Rep. Jim Clyburn, going to Fox Spews to finally get the truth to some of the MAGAt’s . I feel that maybe just a few of these may change their demented minds, but no one will ever get through some of the hard core MAGAt followers such as my youngest son. They are beyond any reasonable explanations and are so brainwashed nothing will ever change their minds or what’s left of their minds. I have watched these programs over and over again about the rise and fall of Adolf Hitler and the things that are happening here in the USA are very much similar to what happened in 1930’s Germany in the Nazi takeover and Hitler becoming Dictator… It frightens me to think that really could happen here.. I will be fleeing to the great nation on our northern border if that does indeed happen here.

  2. Correction, the will of the American voter is not the same as the will of the American people which includes about 40% of the leeches that are eligible to vote but do not or keep up but continue to benefit from what America not in need of being made great again except for those with empty heads infested with what come become fatal to some, Fox induced toxic stupidity!
    The will of the American people is what will destroy these psuedo-conservative fascist rats that have crawled from the sewers of the Republican Party because the passive stupidty demonstrated by the left in all the glory of populist ignorance will never get it done !

  3. repeat, I’ve only been wrtirinf English for 70+ years..

    • I am already hearing that some of these fascist sewer rats say they aren’t going to accept the results of the election if they lose. I may be dead wrong about this, but i am thinking there may be scattered incidents of violence at some of the polls and chaos if these deranged asshats lose. One lawsuit suit after another could delay and hold up some verified results. I was wrong when i thought there could be violence in the 2020 elections except for the Jan 6 insurrection at the capitol building when all hell broke loose that fateful ugly day. I agree with totally with your comment. 100% TRUE. i also read that in Arizona there were armed psychopaths at a ballot drop box there. I guess we will find out soon enough though…
