8. This reminded me of their use in 2015-16 of Nazi term "Lugenpresse,"

"lying press," or "fake news." Almost 100 years later, the Republican Party and their candidate, and his followers, rely very heavily on the fascist tactic of attacking the truth-telling press that was critical to electing Hitler's fascist party to power.

Apparently our domestic fascists didn't like the blowback Trump's "very good people's" brazen use of the Nazi term were causing, though, because they dropped it then. Anyway, this obvious graphic redux made me curious to see if they'd resumed using Lugenpresse, but no. Europe's fascists are using it, but America's fascists are sticking to Trump's "Fake news!" that's now burned into America's psyche.
