Children are ripped from parents. They are put in cages. Trump bashes peaceful protesters to get a photo op. Trump says dead soldiers are losers. ON AND ON AND ON it goes.

But to hear it, right wingers are patriots, heroes and brave as ****. There truly is no prosperous way forward, but to have right wingery subsume all.

Folks standing their ground on a parking spot. Yelling at minorities. All manor of ugly hateful arrogance. And STILL, the right wing are righteous, the left wing must be crushed and ELIMINATED.

How do these folks bamboozle themselves into such admiration?

Elderly Nazis Laugh as They Recall Massacring Jews

VENICE—It is the vivid description over and over by different voices—sometimes with a wry laugh—of the smell of the burning flesh of thousands of Jewish people killed in Adolf Hitler’s ovens that makes British filmmaker Luke Holland’s Final Account both painful to watch and hard to turn away from. The most poignant aspect of the film is that it proves how state control and coercion can normalize even the most horrific acts, a lesson perhaps more relevant in today’s world than ever.

Many of those featured have pristinely preserved their swastika-stamped membership cards to the Hitler Youth and the SS, unwrapping them for Holland with what can only be described as pride. Others had scrapbooks and other memorabilia of a time it is hard to fathom could have produced anything like a happy childhood, yet photo after photo shows these elderly people as smiling young children caught up in one of the bleakest moments of history.

In interview after interview, these men and women explained how they were removed from the horror even as they stood guard at concentration camps or did other work that supported Hitler’s actions. The women spoke of how thin the camp prisoners were, how hungry they were as they sipped coffee and ate biscuits with Holland. One woman marveled at the great dentists among the prisoners, explaining that they had to provide dental care for free to the local community members and showing how the repairs on her own teeth had lasted all these years.

Toward the end, Holland’s tone turns and he asks each of his main characters if they are complicit. Some admit that doing nothing perhaps could be construed as such, but that if 99 people in front of you kill Jews, then by the time it’s your turn, it seems right. Holland, who only learned of his own Jewish heritage in 2005, set out to discover who murdered his grandparents, but surely never imagined he would meet so many unrepentant Nazis.

One scene depicts the most repentant of the characters, Hans Wierk, who was asked to address a group of young students and ends up in a confrontation with a budding neo-Nazi whose face was pixelated, and who accuses him of shunning history and telling him that he should be worried about migrants killing him and not about what he was involved in during the Holocaust. Wierk nearly cries, warning the young man, “I ask only this of you: Do not let yourself be blinded.”

I do not believe that any "budding neo-Nazi" would do or say something like that while being recorded for a documentary in a country (Germany) where expressing the wrong views can get you arrested.

Most Nazis fled. They are in diaspora.

I think your bias has blinded you. Sure a few right wingers are monsters, this very board shows the same is true of a few left wingers, who round up right wingers and put them in ovens if they could.

When You see a few right wingers yelling slurs at blacks, and extrapolate to all right wingers, , but your mind blocks out a leftist group yelling just as hateful stuff at right wingers or Jews or cops, and even if it’s not blocked, you automatically see it as somewhat justified, or as “the exception to all those wonderful good left wingers”.

I understand this, it’s normal human tribal behavior, I do the same thing t an extent. Most everyone is biased, we overlook bad things in friends and family that we would hate others for, the same applies to political tribe loyalties.
It’s hard t see things objectively.

Right wingers have weeded out all the reasonable conservatives, till all that is left standing is SCUM. Normally, I would agree. And do value Conservatives. But there are none left.

No I mean examples of the “cult” being monsters.

And never trumpets are a very small group, tiny.

As a SMALL sample, GET RID of Obamacare, but we got nothing to replace it with. LYING, and saying it is OBAMA that made cages for kids, when right wing nazis know DAMN well, it was THEIR zero tolerance program, that put the kids in. And, they lied and said they didnt know it would end up lie that. DESTROYING the refugee program, and abusing the abused refugees more. SICK ****s. I say.

They're subhumans. They shouldn't be punished for it. Simply ignored until they're dead. They're a gaggle of stupid, angry racists. They had their term. Soon their time will be done forevermore, and we can resume forgetting that these insignificant, impotent people exist. They'll die and that will be that.

Reducing others to the sub-human level of scum, how very fascist of you. And in a thread denouncing fascism no less. You really thought this through didnt you :lamo

I will GUARANTEE you this, Trump will not end his second term in office. Unless we are to become a NAzi nation.

Why dont you do yourself a favor and go learn what Nazism is instead of making ignorant posts like that. And take Yakshi with you. Maybe you could split the cost of your education.

Just because history does not repeat itself exactly, and we havent invented the words yet, for the evil that Trump intends does not mean that using the closest applicable words is wrong.

Back in the 1960's and earlier on, Democrats were the right-wing conservatives. Today it' the Republicans. Go figure.

"Right wingers" are mostly White. They're CHRISTIAN believers, and they believe that America was founded upon CHRISTIAN principals and CHRISTIAN beliefs. In other words they stand for what's RIGHT, whereas Democrats stand for the WICKED.

And if you had read a bible, NOT like Trump, upside down, you would know that there is a NEW testament. And Jesus HATES right wingers. The right wing, as far as religion is concerned, are the Pharisees.
