It is hard to believe that so many Trump supporters cannot see this as happening right now.

"Here in America it is not a question whether we tolerate minorities. America is minorities."

In an old-fashioned style, but those would be good words for America to hear today!

Americans remember WWII or have even read about it. I find the US truly frightening, so many are so damn ignorant and clueless.

I was in pre-school when this film was made. I remember many of such films shown before the feature film at the movie theater. Later, when television became common, we saw many of such films on TV, usually late at night. This was common knowledge. These are what I was raised to think were "American values."

WHY THE FUCK DID WE FORGET????

a behavior pattern repeated throughout history, on every continent, over and over again, a true sucker's game.
we're far too willing to, as the film says, "gamble with the rights of others," it seems to be part of our collective nature, and so far there have always been enough suckers ready to step up and play the game to keep the power mongers afloat.
but this time it's different. i can feel the table turning on the sucker game. this time the collective is resisting the tendency to be suckered by the would-be autocrat. this time we can learn. maybe this is the time we finally get it right. maybe.
