MSNBC Compares GOP To Hitler, Mussolini

The left is afraid and you can tell by how extreme their rhetoric is getting.

The left is afraid and you can tell by how extreme their rhetoric is getting. The mainstream media is desperate to convenience voters that Biden’s America ain’t so bad.

Meanwhile, here in the real world, Americans are crushed under Biden’s inflation. In a pathetic attempt at a hail mary pass to recover voters for the DNC overlords, MSNBC fearmongered its viewers. Claiming that the GOP is a bigger threat to Democracy than Hitler and Mussolini.

Politico’s White House editor Sam Stein begged Vox’s Zack Beauchamp and Prof. Ruth Ben-Ghiat to draw parallels between the Republican party and some of history’s worst tyrannical leaders.

The fact that you have two separate media puppets coming together to speak on another network’s platform just shows how desperate they are.

Beauchamp was the first one up to take a swing at viewers, “The conservative movement emerged after World War II as a coherent entity, is it attempted to align itself with these radicals on the theory that it could contain them and bring them into the political coalition, harness their incredibly, sort of, strong feelings and beliefs and turn them into votes for basically pretty normal tax cuts and anti-abortion politics, and the kind of things that really the things that animate mainstream conservatives. And this worked for a little bit, what happened is that over time, slowly, and ultimately culminating in Donald Trump the radicals started to influence the mainstream conservatives, not the other way around.”

Stein turned the attention over to the professor, looking for her to confirm their obviously rehearsed segment and, as I’m sure you guessed, she did. Prof. Ben-Ghiat took the rhetoric to a pathetic extreme and compared the GOP to Hitler and Mussolini:

“I do agree and in fact, my book is about all these case studies all over the world of when conservatives, like, starting with Mussolini and Hitler, conservatives brought these extremists and their militias into power thinking they could control them and ally with them and then the logic of authoritarianism is increasing radicalization.”

This type of rhetoric isn’t new for these guys. We witnessed it over and over again during Trump’s presidency. This time, however, the media isn’t demonizing a single person. They’re instead targeting the voter base and pushing for a greater divide.

The left is currently facing a devastating midterm as Biden’s approval tanks in a massively bipartisan way. They’re also terrified of the conservative-led Supreme Court. It’s the media’s job, it seems, to keep the divide going because the left can’t afford to have their base holding open dialog with conservatives.

That would just be disastrous…

SAM STEIN: Zack, let’s start with you. In your new piece that you write, quote, “what America faces now is a conservatism unbounded. While the movement of the past regularly partnered with the radical right, even shared some of its beliefs, it also would on occasion police it. Today’s conservatism has jettisoned that modicum of caution. It’s a conservatism that isn’t conservative, but downright revolutionary and having had a taste of victory, there is no sign that the Republican Party is willing or even capable of reimposing the limits that once made it safe for democratic politics.”

Alright, Zack, what’s changed? Why do you believe the Republican Party is no longer capable of policing itself essentially? 

ZACK BEAUCHAMP: So, it’s important to understand the underlying conflict here, the distinction between conservatives and the radical right. So, basically, across time and space in liberal democracies, there’s a consistent element of the population and intellectual vanguard that believes very firmly that the idea of equality of democracy is a mistake. 

That the notion that hierarchies should be upended politically and everyone should have an equal say in government and certain groups should not be more represented than others. That strikes them as a profound rejection of what politics should be. 

We had this faction throughout the United States. It’s the ideology of slave holders, the Ku Klux Klan, of—of– the John Birch Society, George Wallace’s presidential run, but what had happened, at least, as, sort of, as the conservative movement emerged after World War II as a coherent entity, is it attempted to align itself with these radicals on the theory that it could contain them and bring them into the political coalition, harness their incredibly, sort of, strong feelings and beliefs and turn them into votes for basically pretty normal tax cuts and anti-abortion politics, and the kind of things that really the things that animate mainstream conservatives. 

And this worked for a little bit, what happened is that over time, slowly, and ultimately culminating in Donald Trump the radicals started to influence the mainstream conservatives, not the other way around.

It wasn’t the conservatives controlling the radicals. It was the radicals whose ideas based on had their shared hatred for liberalism and sort of the mainstream of American political society, they gradually started to resemble each other to the point where the mainstream right was willing to fully capitulate to the radical right if it meant gaining political power. 

STEIN: I don’t want to turn this into a college PoliSci course, but we have a professor here. Ruth, do you—do you– agree with the synopsis? And then as a follow, if you do agree with it, I’m wondering as someone who has studied this stuff, one of the closest historical parallel to the moment we are riding, that we are in right now with our democracy? 

RUTH BEN-GHIAT: So, I do agree and in fact, my book is about all these case studies all over the world of when conservatives, like, starting with Mussolini and Hitler, conservatives brought these extremists and their militias into power thinking they could control them and ally with them and then the logic of authoritarianism is increasing radicalization. And really we’re going to have to find a new language because conservative no longer fits a party that perpetrated a coup and would do it again tomorrow because the GOP—the GOP– is unrepentant and also it’s very important to—to– know that the GOP is now co-mingling and fusing at local and state level with—with– extremists. There one-in-five local and state GOP officials has sympathies or affiliations with—with– radical groups. 

And—and– that’s why we also see the logic of the party eating its own as it becomes the far-right extremist party. The whole RINO phenomenon where moderates have to be pushed out. So—so– this has happened before in history. Also when there’ve been military coups. It’s–it’s happened whenever you have far-right authoritarians or get to power.
