Nazi Comparisons Never Work Out Well

Not sure when the left will realize that there simply is nothing that compares to Nazis or Hitler or the Third Reich in America today, but they were at it again on Sunday.

Although Nazi references are generally reserved for President Trump, this one - from MSNBC's Chris Matthews - was aimed at Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). 

The Hardball host was commenting on Sanders' win in Nevada as the latest example of the growing momentum for the socialist senator when he said that this most recent win for Sanders reminded him of France falling to the Nazis in World War II.

Matthews said, "I was reading last night—Brian (Williams), I know, you’re a history guy too. I’m reading last night about the fall of France in the summer of 1940. And (Prime Minister) Reynaud calls up Churchill and says, 'it's over.' And Churchill says, 'How can it be, you got the greatest army in Europe? How can it be over?' He said, 'It’s over.'"

According to The Hill, the Bernie Bros are now demanding Matthews resign for his comments.
