WND Frets Over Trump-Nazi Comparisons, Ignores Its History of Obama-Nazi Comparisons
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Joe Kovacs seems a little upset in a Dec. 9 WND article:

Achtung, political fans!

Images of Donald Trump on swastikas are now making their debut into this presidential race.

Police in northeast Atlanta spent much of Wednesday morning trying to scrape the swastikas from at least two bridge supports in the area.

The symbols feature a cartoon of Trump sporting a Hitler-style mustache and a bow tie made out of a $100 bill.

Their appearance comes only days after Trump’s controversial call to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. until a proper vetting process is developed. Trump said in a statement released Monday there should be a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.”

Kovacs being conserned that Trump is being portrayed as a Nazi is particularly rich given WND's own history of smearing President Obama as a Nazi.

As we've documented, WND not only has published numerous attacks on Obama likening him to various and sundry Nazis, it actually defended doing so. WND also published a columnist, Hilmar von Campe, whose apparent sole purpose in life was to hurl Obama-Nazi smears, showing that he learned well from his childhood as a member of the Hitler Youth.

Kovacs doesn't mention that actual neo-Nazis and white supremacists and nationalists are totally down with Trump's plan to bar Muslims from entering the country. That's something that lends a little heft to those Trump-Nazi accusations, unlike with anything involving the Obama-Nazi smear.
