JESSE JACKSON COMPARES TRUMP TO HITLER: ‘ Comparisons to Hitler are always explosive, but the comparison is apt.’
How explosive can they be in 2020, when in “In the aftermath of the Republican Party’s dramatic takeover of Congress on the strength of the conservative ‘Contract With America’ in 1994, Jackson lamented: ‘In South Africa, we call it apartheid. In Nazi Germany, we’d call it fascism. Here in the United States, we call it conservatism.’”
Then in 2000, “During the Florida mess he accused Bush of ‘Nazi tactics’ and suggested that Jeb Bush was deliberately targeting Holocaust victims, ‘once again.’”
Curious to see Jackson continually redline the Godwin Meter, when “In an early 1984 conversation he thought to be private, U.S. presidential candidate Jesse Jackson disparaged Jews as ‘Hymies’ and referred to New York City as ‘Hymietown.’ Washington Post reporter Milton Coleman, who is black, attended the conversation and reported on it.”
