The Trumpening: Coming undone
Literally Hitler. I mean, every Republican since Clinton has been Literally Hitler to many on the left. And I just kind of yawn at the claim, even when applied to Trump. And, also, every Republican is a racist, fascist, sexist, bigoted, homophobe, etc. And that is always how they are portrayed by their political opponents. Always. Even milk toast Romney.
Of course, the younger voters probably don’t remember that Bush, McCain, and Romney were also Literally Hitler. So, they may actually believe that Trump is Literally Hitler. If I thought Trump was Literally Hitler, I’d be a little freaked out too. But I don’t.
This election cycle, the left and democrats decided that it wasn’t enough to call someone racist. It was bad to be white. Turning “white” into a pejorative rattled enough people’s cages to sway the election.
Tam nails it.
