Thursday on ABC’s “The View,” while discussing the Republican National Convention, co-host Joy Behar likened the Republican Party’s platform to Hitler’s autobiographical manifesto, “Mein Kampf.” When co-host Sunny Hostin said, “The Republican Convention is supposed to be about the party’s platform. That’s what it’s supposed to be about,” Behar chimed in saying, “Have you seen the party’s platform? I think it was in Mein Kampf, the last time I saw that!”
The co-host then went on to say that “it looks as though they simply copied most of Hitler’s autobiography and pasted it directly into their platform.” “I mean, I’m no expert, but anyone who’s ever read Mein Kampf can testify that one similarity might be a fluke, two a bigger fluke, but this many of them? This is just too much to be called an accident,” she argued. “If Hitler was alive right now, he’d probably sue them for copyright infringement or something.”
“But it goes even beyond that,” Behar continued. “If you know anything about Adolf Hitler, Nazi Germany and World War 2, and I hope you do because that’s all taught in elementary school, you don’t even have to read the book. You know from history classes that Hitler hated the Jews, that he hated all the other races, and that the man, in addition to being one of the greatest mass murderers in the history of mankind, was also pretty cool with his soldiers impregnating white German women throughout the country, out od wedlock and all. And that means, in some weird way, that he was pro-life, or rather, pro-Arian race life, to be exact. And who else is pro-life? Exactly, pretty much every Republican out there.”
She was unstoppable. “And it gets even better, believe it or not. We’re all familiar with the Republican point of view on the LGBT population, more specifically, homosexuals, right? And guess who else wasn’t a fan of man-on-man lovin’? That’s right, our favorite psychopath Hitler. And I know there are stories that he was a pedophile who loved young, blonde German boys despite the fact that he had a ton of children with Eva Braun. But even if he was, it kind of makes sense that he had to pretend like he hated gays, because he was the head of a criminal military machinery. He couldn’t let his reputation be smeared, and you know how the Nazis operated – they didn’t do anything half way.”
“So, at the end of the day, there’s really no need for any additional evidence, right? I mean, if you ask me, I don’t know why the Republican Party doesn’t just get it over with and change its name to the National Socialist American Workers’ Party, or Nazi Party, I short. Because, they’ve got everything down to the smallest detail. And that includes the head, Donald Trump. If he’s not the modern Hitler, I don’t know who is. And if he becomes commander in chief and is given decision-making capabilities over our nuclear arsenal and military, we’re really looking at World War 3, I’m telling you,” the co-host concluded with a rather gloomy prediction.
