Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Twitchy.com: “Salon's Chauncey DeVega compares today's Republicans to 'the 'good Germans' of the Nazi era,' likely won't lose his job over it”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

"Like the 'good Germans' of the Nazi era, Republicans want to believe that they are good and decent people who can hide behind fictions of plausible deniability for the evils committed by their leader," @chaunceydevega writes.https://t.co/s9nXipv01t

Ultimately, when today’s Republicans and their voters and other followers say that they want the party to become “more conservative,” what is really being communicated is a desire for “friendly fascism.” This is in no way a rejection of Trumpism — indeed, most Republican elected officials, as well as “traditional” Republican voters, supported (and continue to support) almost all of Trump’s policies. Rather, this desire to become “more conservative” represents a yearning for a more polite, less crude leader to complete Trump’s resurrection of a new American apartheid where “those people” know their proper place and stay in it.

Today’s Republicans love Donald Trump and his policies. Most of them, however, do not want the shame, stink, blood and filth of his neofascist project on their hands. Like the “good Germans” of the Nazi era, Republicans want to believe that they are good and decent people who can hide behind fictions of plausible deniability for the evils committed by their leader. Calling themselves “conservatives” is an effort to shield themselves from responsibility and complicity. Will this subterfuge succeed? The American people and the world will found out soon.

At this point, I just want some new illiterate historical analogies. Anything. "Just like Genghis Khan or Ivan the Terrible or Robespierre" whatever.

Seriously?? WTF "evils" are you talking about? Receipts, kids, receipts. You can't just wave "orange man evil" and make analogies like this.
