Nazi websites such as The Daily Stormer are fond of using imagery which […]

Trump Is A Dream Come True For Nazis

Trump Is A Dream Come True For Nazis

It’s usually a lazy comparison, let’s be honest. Ever since the dust thrown up by the 3.4 million tons of bombs that fell through the skies during WWII settled, Adolf Hitler has been something of a go to metaphor. Whenever a dictator enthroned himself in a backwater nation-slum, he was the new Hitler. Whenever a political opponent […]
