The Nazis are national socialists. They are kissing cousins of the democratic socialists, communists, and the fascists. The supposed anti-fascists, or ANTIFA, can call themselves "anti," but they are engaged in the behaviors of the brown and black-shirted thugs of 1930's Europe. Progressives in America are playing at a very dangerous game.
First, they have directly compared the separation of children at the border from their parents to Nazis. They've called the camps concentration camps. While I can agree with them that the policy is wrong, the Nazi comparisons are wrong too. Hitler would have never provided air conditioning nor would he have processed children out of the camps into a foster program. But that is what Trump was doing in compliance with American law and legal precedent Barack Obama himself used.
I was opposed when Barack Obama was doing this, but all these people comparing Trump to Hitler were perfectly fine with it then. The problem now is that the left has decided violence against the policy is moral because they have determined the policy is immoral. They have released a horde of angry young fascists to go after government employees and cabinet secretaries. This is as wrong as the policy of separating families, if not more so, before the separation of families is a policy with which Democrats themselves were once okay.
For those who thought James Hodgkinson, who attempted a mass assassination of Republican members of Congress, was an anomaly, it looks more and more like Hodgkinson was a starting point to something violent. "Democratic" socialists stormed a restaurant in Washington to disrupt dinner until the Secretary of Homeland Security fled. Hollywood celebrities have encouraged the kidnapping and raping of the President's child and his press secretary's child. Government employees who work for Homeland Security have seen their home addresses put on the internet and, in some cases, pictures of their family displayed by activists intent on harming them.
President Trump engaging in a zero tolerance policy and separating all parents from their children at the border was not normal and was yesterday reversed. But the left is more and more normalizing violence and harassment against their political opponents and justifying it with the language of morality. What should not be normal is becoming normal, and that is a dangerous game. This will not end well for anyone. Violent extremists on the left, including Hollywood celebrities, are only going to emboldened more James Hodgkinsons. It is going to happen. And the condemnation from the left will become more and more faint as it does. They have decided the President and his supporters get what they deserve.
This won't end well.
