(BrightPress.org) – President Biden attacked his primary presidential opponent Donald Trump on Tuesday, November 14th, claiming Trump’s use of the word “vermin” echoed sentiments expressed by those infamous 20th-century bad guys, the Nazis.
Trump repeated his First Amendment-protected belief that the 2020 election was stolen during a rally in New Hampshire and promised the crowd he would uproot fascists, Marxists, communists, and other “radical left thugs,” a cohort that he said “live like vermin” and rig elections.
Biden said he sounded like a German Nazi in the early part of the 20th century. Biden made the sweeping generalization that Trump’s sentiments targeted and dehumanized “all who oppose him,” and said that Trump wanted to wipe them out.
The hyperbolic characterization is familiar to anyone who engages in social media, calling your online opposition a Nazi is known as “Godwin’s Law.” The rule states that the longer a debate continues online the more probable one side will attempt to characterize the other as Nazi-esque. It’s also known as “reductio ad Hitlerum” – or invalidating someone’s perspective by comparison to the Nazis.
Biden also indicated that remarks Trump made about America’s blood being poisoned were similar to Nazi rhetoric. Those comments were made during an interview where he suggested the flood of illegal immigrants was “poisoning the blood of our country.” Biden’s DHS agents don’t agree, they’ve even deployed heavy machinery to lift razor wire fencing installed by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) to grant more illegals entry.
Despite multiple indictments and a bipartisan establishment effort to end his candidacy Trump remains the clear 2024 Republican primary front-runner by far with Ron DeSantis coming in a distant second place.
Trump campaign spokesman Steven Cheung called the comparisons to 20th-century fascists “ridiculous,” calling those who make the comparisons “snowflakes grasping for anything.” He further suggested that comments comparing Trump to Hitler indicate a severe case of “Trump Derangement Syndrome.” That’s what Trump’s supporters call the fervent and irrational hatred of Donald Trump pursuing political office.
