Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “'Nancy Pelosi, secret Nazi?' Trump team fires back after latest #Resistance attack compares campaign T-shirt to 3rd Reich emblem”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Responding to the allegation that the T-shirt ripped off the emblem of the Nazi Party – spread online by the president’s detractors on Wednesday – Trump’s campaign team dug up photos showing prominent Democratic figures donning similar symbols, asking whether they also had something to hide.

“This is moronic. In Democrats’ America, Mount Rushmore glorifies white supremacy and the bald eagle with an American flag is a Nazi symbol,” the campaign said in a statement addressing the controversy, adding that Democrats “have lost their minds.”

A number of netizens also shot back that eagle symbolism is found in countless American seals and logos dating back centuries. The bird was first chosen for the US national emblem in 1782 following the War for Independence – slightly predating the Nazis’ rise to power over 150 years later. Even self-avowed opponents of the president noted that the eagle theme is not “uncommon,” pointing to the seal of the US Marine Corps and other military symbols.

Believe me, I sympathize with the sentiment, but this theme is not uncommon. I do think they're fascists but I don't need that t-shirt to conclude that. pic.twitter.com/r4Bk0H0Eka

Guys ... I’ve been calling Trump and his supporters Nazis for years ... but the eagle on the shirt looks more like it was designed from U.S. military insignias. These are Army colonel and Navy captain ... pic.twitter.com/0ePsGZm3ZC
