Earlier this month, LU ran an aggregation of a post at Squawker that contained an image of media darling David Hogg sporting an armband reminiscent of the ones worn by followers of Adolf Hitler during the Third Reich.
On Saturday, comparisons between Hitler and the foul-mouthed teen demagogue became complete, when many on Twitter commented on the raised-fist salute Hogg delivered at the end of his angry speech.
By today, the entire #MarchForOurLives event began to be compared to the Hitler Youth, causing the phrase to trend on Twitter.
Hollywood Agent's Office:
SECRETARY: "Central Casting called. They're looking for a Damien, Children of the Corn, Hitler Youth-type to cast in a flick about an Orwellian future where fear and emotionalism is used to subjugate a free people."

In keeping with tradition of their mentor the Parkland Hitler Youth have appeared on Time Magazine, rewarded for their push to disarm Americans. Who believes this will backfire?https://t.co/cA96lDiUPY pic.twitter.com/kM9Tt3weNk

Democrats are exploiting young children much like the Nazis used the Hitler Youth in Germany.
"He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future." – Adolf Hitler

-Wants to take your guns
-Puts a fist salute in the air
-Uses propaganda to further his agenda
-Wants to control your life
-Wears arm bands
-Used by Dems in power to promote their agenda
Hogg would have been a perfect member of the Hitler Youth! Adolf would be proud

The Left and #Soros are ingenious. They have kids ripping up the Constitution, their only protection against tyranny. They are like the #Hitler Youth. Brainwashed in hopes of "change". Conservatives are ridiculed.

The comparison was also made by Mike Adams in a post at Natural News:
Just like Hitler Youth enthusiasts, these fascists-in-training are told they’re “saving lives” for “a better future,” and that the only thing standing in their way is a bunch of violent gun owners who want to murder every baby in sight. (The irony of all these left-wingers actually condoning the abortion murder of babies, of course, is completely missed in all this.)
What none of these children are being told, of course, is that Hitler took away gun rights from the Jews before exterminating six million of them in the Holocaust. It’s so much easier to commit genocide, Hitler discovered, when the people you’re tying to murder can’t fight back. Echoing the madness of the Third Reich, the propagandist-in-chief of today’s lunatic Left anti-gun movement is David Hogg, a profanity-laced, foulmouthed student who is seething with anger and seems forever on the verge of outright calling for all gun owners to be exterminated by the government. [Emphasis added]
Adams also said Hogg “physically resembles Joseph Goebbels.”
“Anyone who supports government mass murder should support David Hogg, because that’s precisely where his rhetoric often leads,” he added.
Another Twitter user posted a video to Periscope making the comparison, using a Wikipedia entry on the Hitler Youth:
Not everyone was thrilled with the comparison, and some called for Twitter to suppress those making the comparison:
@twitter why haven’t you shut down all these bot accounts comparing kids who don’t want to be murdered to Hitler youth tf is wrong with you

Hitler Youth is trending and is about the most disgusting thread I've seen on here in a long while. Those calling our children Hitler youth… You are fucking fearful, derranged cowards. Go hide in your bunkers.

One person justified the comparison by observing that Hogg and his followers have called law-abiding Americans “murderers” for supporting the Second Amendment.
I have been an NRA member all my life. These kids have called many great Americans murderers and whatever else they want to call us. Therefore Hitler Youth is a fine general purpose title for them.
