I'm reminded of the Germans living within a kilometer of a concentration camp that said they had "no idea" that it was even there when questioned by liberating allied forces. I guess the trains coming and going and the stench were something no one noticed....or were too afraid to admit.

It sounds like King George the war mongering torturer and Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin's followers, supported by the Government's media (ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, FOX, etc.)

Ignorance and hypocrisy help fuel the delusion.  It isn't long thereafter that crimes are committed in the name of justice.

The nationalist socialist, hid behind party lines in America, is no more. Their remarkable capacity for committing atrocities, violent attacks upon President Trump supporters, Patriots at large, shows their true nature.

    When he spoke of nationalists he was speaking of Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini.  Leftists all and all dictators.  Socialism kills.
