I didn't say it's the same. I said it's vibes of..I find it crazy that a German gentleman would attempt to make the comparison. Especially citing “corporate fascists and their media outlets” as comparative.
I strongly suggest you look up some of the Weimar printed media from around 1926 on. If anything close was published in the US the fbi would be kicking the door down.
If that’s not evidence enough, look up evidence from state parliaments of that era and you will find ample example.
I’m simply incredulous at the fact you feel it’s comparable in any way shape or form. Overt racism is on the very fringes of society. You won’t find a single credible media outlet running cartoons with blacks as monkeys or child killers. If a member of the House of Representatives says nutty crap (hi Marjorie) they’ll be called out and ridiculed for it. And I must have missed the 200,000 strong ideologically driven paramilitary army dominating the streets too.
I’ll ask it another way: what actual (real not perceived) similarities are there that you see?
But hey, don't you think the US have a problem with a rising and increasingly unhinged fascist right? Storming the parliament and a president trying to overturn an election is not ominous enough? It's pretty weird that anyone would try to downplay the severity of this.
