'He’s of ‘German heritage’: Hillary baits fans into calling Trump a Nazi

Featured Posts

Hillary Clinton lobbed the video equivalent of a Nazi buzz bomb at Donald Trump on Saturday by making his German heritage a campaign issue.

The 37-second clip decrying Trump’s attacks on federal Judge Gonzalo Curiel’s Mexican heritage was subtle — but fans and foes got the message: Clinton thinks Trump, like the Nazis, hates people based on their race.

“His heritage is German. Heil Trump!” tweeted Trump foe Michael Gilmor‏.

“We can all hear the ‘dog whistle’ — she’s calling ‘Drumpf’ a Nazi because he’s German,” posted James Sweitzer.

The clip, backed by ominous music and linked on Twitter, ostensibly concerns Trump’s continued attacks on Curiel, who is presiding over class-action lawsuits brought by Trump University students who claim they were ripped off.

“We are dealing with somebody who is a demagogue, who would rip up our most valued beliefs,” Clinton says in the video clip.

“Yes, [Curiel is] of Mexican heritage. Donald Trump is apparently of German heritage. I mean, what does that mean? We’re all Americans.”

Clinton released the video the day after she told a crowd at a California rally, “We’re electing a president, not a dictator.”

One analyst admired the subtlety of Clinton’s message.

“Classic Hillary, shoving the knife between the ribs without leaving any fingerprints,” said political consultant Bill O’Reilly.

“The World War II generation and their children are no doubt noting what she is implying, but she did it in a way that gives her plausible deniability,” O’Reilly said. “She’s slick.”

Experts cautioned that Clinton’s attacks could backfire.

Rich Flanagan, a professor of political science at the College of Staten Island, noted that German-Americans are the largest ethnic group in the US.

“Especially in the swing states in the upper Midwest — Indiana, Ohio,” Flanagan said. “This week, she started to swing in this more tough direction, but maybe she overdid it.”

It's not like any of us can refuse to deny her claims since many of us have called him Nazi ish.

Hillary: the Tonberry of Politics.

I don't wanna watch the whole 10 minute interview to find a 37 second snippet of her alluding to his german heritage.

If she did do it, its a bit problematic in general, but most of the country is problematic and already talking like this, many don't even see it as a problem, so what does my opinion matter :rip: 

This would qualify as not being PC, btw to everyone who still considers "PC" and "PC culture" to be tangible, damaging things :laughga:

The title of this thread is a reach. She only said he was of German heritage when she was talking about people being of different heritages but Americans after all.

Lord this is such a reach, she literally said 'we're all Americans,' doesn't sound like she's baiting anybody. One of the few times I've seen her being straightforward tbh :air:

pretending you can't recognize the validity of the point Trump made with that comment is a reason he's so popular. bullshit stinks.

Thank you for not actually tagging Lebanese dude. He is so annoying and treats people like **** on here and twists everyone's opinion that doesn't agree with him.

Donald has closer ties to Scotland, but Hillary knew what she was doing when she went further back into his family tree and brought Germany into it :hor:
