The term “Hitler Youth” trended on Twitter on Thursday after President Donald Trump unveiled a “1776 Commission” to whitewash American history.
Trump was harshly criticized for the effort. Here’s some of what people were saying:
Hitler Youth Trump Youth He's following the Hitler playbook. Let's turn all the children into white supremacists.

MAGA is the new Nazi Party.
And MAGA offspring are the new Hitler Youth.

What should we call the outcome…the Trump Youth League. Rhymes with Hitler Youth League. Oh and don't forget the League for German Girls…their job: to breed and breed more Aryans. pic.twitter.com/BcJ2IggiWH

Hitler Youth trending.
Reminder that Germans used historical oppression and a racial privilege conspiracy to justify the destruction and confiscation of Jewish property, and ultimately the holocaust.

Trump promises to sign an executive order on patriotic education in schools — which is another way of saying that in the future, all of America's youth will be educated, trained, and indoctrinated in Trump ideology.
To put it simply, Trump Youth = Hitler Youth.

So basically he wants to establish America's "Hitler Youth"?
I have relatives who grew up in the American school system and it's already as flag waving star spangled patriotic as it can be.
He's talking about Republican indoctrination.

For anyone who has bothered reading any 20th Century History with a current perspective, they might as well be saying "Hitler Youth" when they say "Patriotic Education". These racketeers aren't fucking around. https://t.co/3cwhalzKaC

Didn’t Hitler do this? I believe they called it Hitler Youth. https://t.co/NYyXSgkZQl

The Nazis had a “patriotic education” program too. It was called the Hitler Youth.

And who is leading today's American Hitler Youth? Stephen Miller! pic.twitter.com/krTERtB1A1

As a Jewish person that has learned more about the Holocaust and Nazi Germany than most people, we are past the point where its just a red flag. This red flag has a swastika on it, and it is proudly being waved. I hate this country

I did tons of research on the Nazi and Hitler Youth for my book, The Scouts of St. Michael OPERATION ARCHANGEL.
He's following the Nazi playbook to the tee.
He can't have four more years, or there will be ovens.

Brett Kavanaugh revised his Wisconsin ruling after Vermont official’s demands — but it still contains the lies
Supreme Court Justice revised his Wisconsin opinion after a Vermont official complained that he misrepresented the way the state dealt with the election amid the pandemic. The problem, however, is that his corrections only cleaned up the sloppy language.
While it no longer appears like a high school mock trial assignment, it still lies about the example he gave in the Vermont details.
‘You’re free to go’: CNN’s Lemon tells Trump after president spends weeks complaining about going to rallies
President Donald Trump has spent the last several days at rallies complaining about how much he hates being there and how much he hates being president.
CNN's Don Lemon played clips of the rally airing of grievances.
"I probably bottom be standing out here in the freezing rain with you," Trump complained while in Lansing, Michigan. "I would be home in the White House doing whatever the hell I was doing. I wouldn't be out here."
"We win Wisconsin, we win the whole ball game," Trump told a crowd in Janesville, Wisconsin last week. "What the hell do you think I'm doing here on a freezing night with 45-degree wind? What do you think? Do you think I'm doing this for my health? I'm not doing this for my health."
Trump’s new favorite X-ray doctor is retweeting demands Dr. Fauci debate him
President Donald J. Trump selected radiologist Scott William Atlas as his newest health care policy advisor on the White House Coronavirus Task Force this past August after a public fallout with immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci. The two scholars could not be any more different on their approach to mitigating the pandemic, which has so far killed over 227,000 Americans.
"If we get a vaccination campaign, and by the second or third quarter of 2021 we have vaccinated a substantial proportion of the people, I think it will be easily by the end of 2021, and perhaps even into the next year, before we start having some semblances of normality," Fauci said recently during a University of Melbourne panel.
