It started with this tweet by Amy Siskind, president of The New Agenda, an organization “dedicated to improving the lives of women and girls by bringing about systemic change in the media, at the workplace, at school and at home.”
Yes, it’s getting worse. It’s not just Trump-he has installed a regime to deconstruct the agencies they run, strip away rights and regulations, and make science and educational information disappear. He is tearing apart our fragile democracy and seizing power. Wake up America!

Yes, Trump did “seize power” in a way when he won the 2016 election. Remember how dangerous it was to our fragile democracy to question the results of the election?
In any case, that tweet led to a bit of hand-wringing from Siskind’s followers, including this gem:
Many Americans are either frozen with fear or in complete denial. It's 1930's Germany all over again.

So, it’s 1930s Germany all over again, is it?

That's a complete misunderstanding of history. 2017 America is one of the most free societies the world has ever known. The fact that you were able to tweet what you did proves it.

Wow, didn't think it was possible to diminish the atrocities of Nazi Germany, and then you see tweets like this…..

You disrespect all that perished in the holocaust, and those few that survive today. Shame on you. You don’t have to like what the political party that opposes your personal views is doing, but how dare you compare it to the regime that murdered my family in cold blood.

What an embarrassment. Mockery of true Survivors.

My relatives were in 1930 Germany you have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about. It’s frightening you’re lack of knowledge. What an insult

The best part about this is you're living in fear AND in complete denial. Congrats. https://t.co/7s2clHJMPT
