Remember when Donald Trump’s administration incarcerated kids who had illegally crossed the Mexican border? That was literally fascism. These children-packed detention centres were ‘concentration camps’, said Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Trump is taking the world ‘back to the 1930s’, said a breathless scribe at the Guardian.

Or how about when Trump dropped bombs on the Middle East? He was branded an insane warmonger. This is the imperial logic of his alt-right leanings, we were told. As for his administration’s targeting of Iranian forces – in particular Iran’s top military commander, Qasem Soleimani, killed by an American bomb in January last year – that was held up by some leftists and liberals as proof of just how deranged Trumpism had become. #WorldWar3 trended on Twitter. ‘Could tension between the US and Iran spark World War 3?’, asked one headline. Trump was always either embodying the evils of the Second World War or propelling humanity into a third.

—“Designer of CPAC Stage, Accused of Looking Like Nazi Symbol, Is Identified, Kicker Is Who They Are and For Whom They’ve Worked,” Nick Arama, RedState, today.

As Frank J. Fleming tweets, “Where do dummies get the idea that conservatives are pro-nazi? They hate nazis. They think the left are a bunch of nazis. And commies.” Well, national socialists and international socialists, to be precise.
