On The Morning Joe show, MSNBC commentator Donny Deutsch recently likened Trump voters to Nazis. Speaking in regards to the latest manufactured outrage of separating illegal immigrate children from their parents, Deutsch said:

    I wanna attach what you just said to the question that Carter asked John about; politicizing; I could put an exclamation mark about everything you said. It was particularly reprehensible when Ivanka said, “It looks a certain way.”

    What has to happen now is this can no longer be about who Trump is. It has to be about who we are, if we are working towards November. We can no longer say Trump’s the bad guy. If you vote for Trump, you’re the bad guy. If you vote for Trump, you are ripping children from parents’ arms. The mistake that we’ve made in the past, is “Look at that bad guy over there. Look at that bad guy.”

    What the Democrats have to do is make the next election a referendum on not who Trump is, but who you are. That’s the big difference. You can no longer now as a voter — because it’s not about taxes, it’s not even about some abstract term of immigration or nationalism; if you vote for Trump then you, the voter, you, not Donald Trump, are standing at the border, like Nazis, going “You here, you here.”

    And I think we now have to flip it and it’s a given, the evilness of Donald Trump. But if you vote, you can no longer separate yourself. You can’t say, well he’s okay, but — and I think that gymnastics and I think that jiu-jitsu has to happen.

This is just one example of many of how the Nazi label has been thrown around so casually these days, that it's necessary to define exactly what a Nazi is, and what they believe. For this we look to the National Socialist Program. This was a 25-point plan of the National Socialists German Workers' Party presented by Adolf Hitler in 1920. I wont be going over the whole 25 points verbatim, you can read those for yourself. These, however, are the main points of what it means to be a Nazi:

-You had to be a member of the Nazi Party. This seems like a no-brainer, but the Nazis were a political party.

-You have to be ethnically German.

-You had to be ethnocentric. The Nazis believed only a member of the "race" (someone of German blood) could be citizen.

-You had to be a nationalist. Nationalism is defined as loyalty and devotion to a nation. It should be stressed here that nationalism is not the same as patriotism. In the words of George Orwell, "Nationalism is not to be confused with patriotism. Both words are normally used in so vague a way that any definition is liable to be challenged, but one must draw a distinction between them, since two different and even opposing ideas are involved. By ‘patriotism’ I mean devotion to a particular place and a particular way of life, which one believes to be the best in the world but has no wish to force on other people. Patriotism is of its nature defensive, both militarily and culturally. Nationalism, on the other hand, is inseparable from the desire for power. The abiding purpose of every nationalist is to secure more power and more prestige, not for himself but for the nation or other unit in which he has chosen to sink his own individuality."

-You had to be an isolationist. Non-citizens were prevented from immigrating, and all non-Germans already living in Germany were forced to leave the Reich.

-You have to be a socialist. The Nazi party called for the nationalization of all public companies, and a division of profits of all heavy industries. That they were socialists should be obvious, but this fact has often been overlooked by many. It also indicates that contrary to what some have asserted, the Nazis were not right-wing. Socialism and Communism are two sides of the same coin, and it should be remembered that the Nazis had a pact with the Russians until they broke it.

-You have to support national healthcare and nationalized education.

-You have to support control of the press. All writers and employees had to be German. Non-Germans were forbidden by law to exert any influence, or publish material that the government deemed counter to the "general good".

-You have to be a fascist. Execution of the 25-point plan was to be executed with a strong central power, with unlimited authority of the central parliament over the whole Reich.

In summary, in order to be a Nazi you had to meet ALL these qualifications. Cherry picking one or two things, misconstruing them, and then using them to mischaracterize someone because you don't like their political beliefs does NOT make them a Nazi. Just remember this the next time someone calls you a Nazi.

Deutsch was wrong....Nazis didn’t exactly greet people at the borders and tell them where to go.  They rounded up Jewish citizens and gassed many of them.  Anyone who calls any American a Nazi is more than uneducated, he is just plain stupid, and I mean the kind of stupid that can’t be fixed.

If you look at how the terms ‘communist’ and ‘socialist’ have become generally accepted without all the negative overtones of the 1950s, you will see that the term ‘nazi’ is on a similar trajectory.  As our elderly who lived through those terrible times die off, our young are indoctrinated and these terms are softened.  

Great post, Watchman!

Wonderful post Watchman

Indeed but my question is who is going to stop this. Our country and freedoms are slowing getting lost in all of this.  Yes it is all becoming common. This is how a third world country is formulated.  We no matter how old we are will soon see how horrible these words are and how it will treat its citizens.  Democracy ruled by the mob.  See anything like this presently? family, education etc all that Alinski has taught these leftist on how to conquer America.

Constitutional Republic how often do you hear that these days.  Indoctrination is the devil behind the curtain and trust me we are not in the land of oz folks.  This is the real thing. We have talked about it for years and yet nothing is happening as we slowly see the dark hole were falling into.  

I for one need to see the walk and no more of the talk. We know all of this lets hit congress and the president to get rid of sessions and get someone who is what this land is all about " the land of the FREE because of the Brave.Time to stop talking about all these criminals and their lies and put them where they belong....behind bars. Time to understand that they have been slowly changing our minds and definitions of these horrific words. Making them sound like they are either good for us as they go further and further into a one world government but until they do just want to increase their power and money to do so.

Thanks for the comments JG & Mahcookie. Just want to add that calling someone a Nazi is dangerous rhetoric. If someone actually believes someone to be a Nazi, then they will feel justified to use violence.

Great post, Watchman! Great comments as well by Mah and JG! We are living in some very dangerous times. The rhetoric is becoming increasingly dangerous and the left will stop at nothing to stop this president. I pray every day no one is successful in actually getting to Trump.
