Trump Youth: Totally not Hitler Youth

The founder of Trump Youth decided to take a page out of Mein Kampf and start a youth movement in a radical proposal to “remove the parasites from America.”

I’m literally not making this up.

A website for the group encourages young voters to “[e]mbrace your destiny and become a part of the greatest battle the world has ever seen.”

“We Millennials are destined for greatness; no longer will we sit idle and watch everything our forefathers built be turned to dust,” the website says. “Our world is hurting, and it is up to us, the Youth, to become the Hero Generation and to save the world.”

Writing on his personal website earlier this year, Liardi said that he did not understand the “truth” about Adolf Hitler until he read Mein Kampf.

“I began to seek out the history without the propaganda– I wanted to understand the mind of the supposed most evil man in history,” he wrote. “So I studied the events leading up to the war, the german Weimar Republic, WWI and the climate of Europe in the early 20th century. And yes, I read Adolf Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf’.”

Incidentally, I also studied the events leading up to the Third Reich. My term paper on WW2 was returned with a giant checkmark on it, which when pressed for an actual letter grade, my prof said it meant “A+.” Somehow I walked away from that project without coming to the conclusion that fascism is a sustainable or practical solution for… well, literally anything. I won’t bother with the ample material of ethical and moral considerations of fascism, because anyone persuaded by Mein Kampf is already an ethically bankrupt egotist that isn’t likely to be satisfied by any arguments that appeal to altruism or the slightest sense of empathy.

NSA, I know you’re reading this: This motherfucker and every other motherfucker who joins him better be on a list.

    Fuck, I posted about this at the same time! This is unb, well, no, I wish this was unbelievable, I really do. Interestingly, this pops up right at a time when Trump is pretending to reach out to Black people, letting them know that they are stupid for voting against their own interests by voting democrat.

    Is this the blogging equivalent of showing up to a party wearing the same dress as another guest?

    Well, it does make it difficult to decided which blog to comment on.
    I know what to do

    Since I’m not going to click on any of Jayme Liardi’s sites, I can’t find out how old he is.
    But from the images online, he seems a bit past ‘youth’.

    The Millennial generation started somewhere around 1980-83 depending on who’s figuring it, so he’s probably within the range he’s targeting. These are overly broad generational designations that lump together people their mid-thirties and teenagers. And, yes, it looks mighty stupid when us older Millennials try to squeeze in there with “the youths.”

    For the past few months, I’ve been joking that if I had a bunch of spare cash and a hundred or so friends who were interested in performance art, I’d make a bunch of snazzy pseudo-military uniforms, get everyone dressed up, and march around in formation at Trump rallies. All questions would be referred to “The Don”. If Trump want to act like he’s one uniformed paramilitary short of a 1930s fascist, I’d give him his uniformed paramilitary.

    Alas, I have neither the friends, the organizational skills, nor the spare cash to pull this off. It sounds like this person is trying to do something similar, except not as a joke.
