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.

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.

Here’s why counting 2020 votes could hinge on 13,500 misprinted ballots in Wisconsin
Officials in Wisconsin are warning of delays in counting votes after 13,500 ballots were misprinted.
"The state Supreme Court declined to take a case Thursday that would tell officials in northeastern Wisconsin how to deal with misprinted ballots, raising the prospect of lengthy counting delays as clerks fill out thousands of replacement ballots on Election Day," Patrick Marley reported for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Thursday.
‘#PerdueIsChicken’: Internet mocks ‘coward’ GOP senator for canceling debate after Ossoff destroyed him in viral video
Democratic Senate hopeful Jon Ossoff destroyed his Republican incumbent opponent so thoroughly Wednesday evening that Georgia Senator David Perdue has just canceled the third and final debate.
“It’s not just that you’re a crook, Senator, it’s that you’re attacking the health of the people that you represent,” Ossoff told Perdue, who had little to say in response. The viral video had been watched 5 million times by Thursday morning. It's now been viewed 9.3 million times, nearly as many times as the number of people in the entire state of Georgia.
A fake ‘intelligence staffer’ crafted the groundwork for the Trump conspiracy theories about Hunter Biden
It's unclear why President Donald Trump and his allies have chosen to attack Vice President Joe Biden's last living son as a key tenant to the 2020 reelection instead of focusing on his opponent himself. But according to a well-researched NBC News report by Ben Collins and Brandy Zadrozny, the "documents," actually came from a fake person that never existed using a profile photo created by an artificial intelligence face generator.
Months ago, there was a fake "intelligence" document about Hunter Biden that popped up online along with tons of "files" from a supposed laptop. None of it was real and it has all been dismissed by Trump's own associates as fake. But now it's being revealed that the company behind the effort was a fake "intelligence firm" called Typhoon Investigations, researchers and public documents revealed.
