Donald Trump has gone full Nazi

I never thought I would live to see this day.

From the NYTimes:
“Whether intentionally or not, Donald Trump is evoking classic anti-Semitic themes that have historically been used against Jews and still reverberate today,” Jonathan Greenblatt, the chief executive of the Anti-Defamation League, a group that fights discrimination, said in a statement.
Not surprisingly, card-carrying Nazis are beside themselves with joy over Trump's "international banker conspiracy" speech.

I think Trump knows exactly what he's doing. And it's monstrous.

 NPR has the transcript. From the speech:
The Clinton machine is at the center of this power structure. We've seen this first hand in the WikiLeaks documents, in which Hillary Clinton meets in secret with international banks to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty in order to enrich these global financial powers, her special interest friends and her donors.
This is the basis of Nazi anti-Semitism, straight out of the infamous Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

We did not fight Hitler in order to let Trump destroy our democracy.
