If visualization helps, I can diagram the overlap:
Absolutely this. The fucking sooner, the better.
USSR playbook?? She knows shit.
In the USSR, antisemitism was official policy and openly effected, and as far as likely non-conservative groups, numerous artists, writers, etc., were ‘disappeared’, imprisoned, and murdered based on a similar policy.
She not only knows shit, she IS shit. Horresco referens!
You know who the USSR once fought? Nazis.
Her dumb ass doesn’t know that. She was trying to figure out how to pop her gum during class.
Only after the Nazis stabbed them in the front by Operation Barbarossa. Until that, Stalin happily cooperated with Hitler, divvying up the Eastern Europe between them; most famously, Poland.
It’s related to the dual loyalty attack
It’s still antisemitism even if you think it is a good thing.
Senator Tommy Tuberville thinks we fought WWII to stop the spread of communism. None of these newer right wing conservatives (Boebert, MTG, Tuberville, Gosar, etc) know any history and they don’t care. They use words like USSR, Nazi, communist, socialist as stand-ins for anything they don’t like, which is just about everything. Some smarter conservatives have done some of this as well, intentionally conflating Nazis with socialists because the official name of the Nazi party had the german word for socialist in it. Anytime someone tries that specific argument with me, I bring up two former nations: the German Democratic Republic, which was neither democratic nor a republic, and the Holy Roman Empire, which was none of those three things.
My fave is North Korea’s official name… Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
Now I have a third example to add to my list. Thanks.
Hey, Bobo- what makes you such the expert on Russia’s playbook, anyhow?
I like Democratic Kampuchea for that (one party autocrats in Thailand), but generally when someone describes Nazis as socialists I ask them do they believe all Nazi propaganda or just that one bit?
The fact about the Nazis is that they were the recipients of donor money from the wealthy, from industry seeking to destroy unions, and they were voted into power by centrists who did so to make sure socialists had no part in government.
Kampuchea = Cambodia.
Nazis literally sold people to corporations. (The entire story of Schindlers List was based on this)
Corporations committed war crimes for Nazis.
None of that screams socialist. All of that would make a GQP squee.
“This is the latest version of this administration’s failed ‘Ministry of Truth,’” Ms Boebert said in the statement. “The First Amendment guarantees a marketplace of ideas where truth, beauty, and justice ultimately win out.”
