Chuck Todd ‘should apologize and resign’: MSNBC anchor blasted for Nazi smear

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Chuck Todd was blasted for likening the supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) to Nazi brownshirts — despite the fact Sanders is the first Jewish candidate to put together a viable campaign for president and lost family members in the Holocaust.

While complaining about having his views challenged by supporters of Sanders, Todd uncritically cited a column by Jonathan Last that appeared at the conservative media outlet The Bulwark.

“No other candidate has anything like this sort of digital brownshirt brigade,” Last wrote. “I mean, except for Donald Trump.”

The “brownshirts” were members of the Sturmabteilung (SA), which translates into the “Storm Detachment.” They were the paramilitary wing that helped the Nazi Party and Adolph Hitler rise to power.

Here’s some of what people were saying about Todd’s remarks:
