Members of the neo-Nazi alt-right cast Emperor Palpatine as the real hero of the Star Wars films.
Dude. Them’s fighting words. [/GeekFury]
But it does explain why they like their boy Trump so much. He reminds them of their heroes, Emperor Palpatine, Adolph Hitler, and Benito Mussolini. And don’t think that all of the Trumpsters are stupid. The Breitbart gang that Trump has around him? They’re smart. They realized that being a neo-Nazi wasn’t cool anymore, what with all those Hitler salutes and such, so they re-branded themselves as “alt-right” and removed the obligatory Nazi paraphernalia from their brand. And it worked! People who wanted to embrace Nazi values, but didn’t want all the symbology attached to those values, flocked to them like pigeons on a statue of a general!
“White quisling”? Ah, yes, that makes me so reminisce about my childhood in the Deep South, where a similar euphemism that started with a “N” and a last word of “lover” abounded. Of course, by the time I was in high school at a school that was 50-50 black and white, it had fallen out of fashion. But everything old is new again, apparently racism is back in style, hurrah, hurrah! As for Mr. Quisling, my understanding is that you must be cooperating with an occupation army of a foreign power to be a quisling, and I see no occupation army in the US. But that’s historical fact, and historical fact surely must not impede a racist rant by a neo-Nazi pile of human excrement, right?
That’s the quality of people we’re dealing with, folks. Fucking Nazis. Goddamn fucking Nazis. And there’s a fucking boatload of them lurking around Cheeto Mussolini like a pack of remora around a shark, just waitin’ for the scraps to fall from his gnashing jowls…
