Ken Burns will be getting death threats shortly

In his series "The US and the Holocaust" part 3 appears to marry Nazis with the MAGA movement.
MAGAts aren't going to be happy and we know Der orange Fuhrer will have something negative
to say about it. Part 3 should really help us in the midterms, will be a rude awakening for a lot of
people as I'm sure Ken will present it in a way that's hard to argue with.

FBI needs to send agents to protect him and his family ASAP. He's a National Treasure.

6. Me, my opinion

Based on that's how FASCISTS operate. MAGAts HATE people who criticize Der orange Fuhrer.

2. No doubt about the threats.

But given the numerous swastikas parading in the Capitol on January 6, along with the nazi flags waving in all the white power marches (remember the tiki torches and chants of 'Jews will not replace us!'), it's not like the philosophical heritage is a secret. No, they're mad because Burns is making it sound like a bad thing, which it is.

10. Of course Burns will get death threats

If you don't think Burns will get death threats then you either have never studied the rise of 20th century European fascism or you don't understand how it works.

As I write this I am 20 miles away from Oradour Sur Glane!!!!!!!!!!!!!

12. Lot of WWII history there

Negative history unfortunately, and the 303 was some great positive history. Nice to see you again.

15. There is no profit minimizing the potential threat in the mindlessness of "true believers".

Generally, it is wise to reserve criticism and condemnation of those with whom one disagrees. However, with those who voluntarily devolve into unreason the arena of common ground shrinks drastically, allowing no place for opposing minds. Overpopulation has no allotment for limited imagination. This seems to be the nature of society when confronted with scarcities of good will, time, resources and patience.

13. He's also been making the rounds He was on with Colbert Monday

And Chris Hayes on MSNBC and I think also CBS mornings? And those were just the shows I noticed. He's promoting his documentary - and I've seen the first two parts, well done and powerful. He has said it's the most important film he's ever done.

19. Let's hope the magats don't get the wrong message.

Most intelligent, good hearted people will view this series in shock, disgust and sadness.
But the very worst among us may see it as an instruction manual. They don't seem to have learned anything from other historic horrors and defeats. Look for them to double down.

23. Context

So some people don't realize a couple things.

First, the MAGA movement is deeply invested in painting the Nazis as Liberals. It's talked about a lot. Because the title of the political party in power in Nazi Germany had the word Socialist in it, they claim Liberal ideology led to the rise of Hitler. FOX News even parrots this on a regular basis. It's a historical fact the Nazi movement was a far right nationalist and racist movement. Don't even have to rehash that, the Nazis were Far Right extremists.

Second, what Burns is touching on is rooted in the fact that the MAGA movement has been deliberately modeled after the rise of Nazism. It's not an accident, the slogans, the methods, and the propaganda is taken directly from Nazi literature, it's not a coincidence. Trump had/has people around him from the start actually reading Goebels and other Nazi literature as a how to manual. There are literal Nazi admirers in Trump's sphere of influencers, the parallels are endless because the parallels are deliberate.
