MSNBCs The Beat, Steve Schmidt, John McCains 2008 presidential campaign manager, compared the lockdown protestors in Michigan to the Nazi Partys original wing.
Melber said, You have Michigan state Senator Dayna Polehanki, Directly above me, men with rifles yelling at us. Some of my colleagues who own bulletproof vests are wearing them. I have never appreciated our Sergeants-at-Arms more than today. Your view of this, Steve?
Schmidt said, This is appalling. Someone needs to explain to me what the difference is between those guys and a bunch of brown-shirted Stormtroopers in 1925 is. Im very serious about this. This is about the Second Amendment. This isnt about gun ownership. These are temples of democracy, these buildings, where we with test the premise each generation, whether we retain the capacity to govern ourselves. Free speech is important in this country. They are not protesters. When you show up in tactical gear carrying a tactical weapon an AR-15, an M-4, an AK-47, youre there to intimidate. Youre assaulting the tenants of our system, which is a system that exists to preserve the rule of law, that is the oldest constitutional republic in the world. We should not think for a second, as were at the dawn of a new moment in history, that because extremism didnt rise in a way that was able to take over the country in the past that its not still here and it still doesnt pose a threat. Nobody should be comforted by those images whether youre a Trump supporter, whether youre a Biden supporter, whether youre not going to vote at all. We dont do that in this country. That is an appalling image, and it makes us look like a basket case as they are beamed out around the world to our allies and to our enemies.

Touched a Deep State nerve there.
It pissed off Lefties. Therefore it was the correct thing to do.
One thing I will always give Trump credit for is exposing all of these frauds
Schmidt has it backwards. As to who it is that is the threat to democracy.
This is getting really old.
Deep State PUTZ!
“I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you’re not patriotic. We should stand up and say we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.”
— Hillary Clinton
Ah. The difference is they are fighting for their civil rights. Glad I could explain.
The difference is, if it was the brown shirts, you would be dragged from the chamber and beat up, possibly killed, for voting against the dear leader.
Oh yeah, Stormtroopers — protesting for freedom.
For your intrest.
History is not his strong suit.
The power of the state has limits.
Thank you!! Steve Schmidt is a complete worthless NWO putz!
Expect more of the same. The optics of that demonstration could not have been ‘better’ if George Soros had produced the whole thing. (Are we sure he didn’t?) More of this sort of lunacy and the leftists win. Stupid move. Stupid and insane.
“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”
“it makes us look like a basket case as they are beamed out around the world to our allies and to our enemies.
Some are inclined to fret over what others think. Some are not. I’m not.
It’s a pretty stark difference and I think it reveals two fundamental human populations.
The - We don’t want to sink to their level - crowd, they blow too.
Didnt see them calling BLM or antifa rioters names. Odd right?
