BILL O'REILLY (HOST): By them calling Trump a Nazi and his supporters little Brown Shirts, they're doing the same thing that Goebbels, who was the minister of propaganda, that Adolf and all those boys did. Because they demonized the Jews, the intellectuals, the communists, the gypsies, the homosexuals --
GOLDBERG: Right, right, right.
O'REILLY: They demonized them in a way to try to get anger on the part of the German population toward those groups. It's the same thing that those in America are doing to try to get anger toward Trump and his followers.
GOLDBERG: Let me make two points. One, on the Brown Shirts matter, if there are any Brown Shirts in this country, it's liberals on college campuses who break up demonstrations and speeches, because they disagree with what's being said. That's what the Brown Shirts did and that's what some crazy liberals on college campuses are doing.

Checking my memory now.
It seems that most of the reported political violence (a limitation in info) has been around the Trumpet's public appearances. In those moments of confrontation, the PHYSICAL assaults are his supporters attacking dissidents, primarily of color, but anyone not agreeing that the Trumpet is a worthy. (He most defintely is NOT.)
So, I call BS promulgated by baseless hopes.
Just to clarify what I think, I would love for her to withdraw.

In a discussion of authoritarianism / totalitarianism, there's hardly a better case study than Nazi Germany.
The Nazi Party began building a mass movement. From 27,000 members in 1925, the Party grew to 108,000 in 1929. The SA was the paramilitary unit of the Party, a propaganda arm that became known for its strong arm tactics of street brawling and terror. The SS was established as an elite group with special duties within the SA, but it remained inconsequential until Heinrich Himmler became its leader in 1929. By the late twenties, the Nazi Party started other auxiliary groups. The Hitler Youth, the Student League and the Pupils' League were open to young Germans. The National Socialist Women's League allowed women to get involved. Different professional groups--teachers, lawyers and doctors--had their own auxiliary units.
... Party propaganda proved effective at winning over university students, veterans' organizations, and professional groups, although the Party became increasingly identified with young men of the lower middle classes. fcit.usf.edu...
Nazi anti-Jewish policy functioned on two primary levels: legal measures to expel the Jews from society and strip them of their rights and property while simultaneously engaging in campaigns of incitement, abuse, terror and violence of varying proportions. There was one goal: to make the Jews leave Germany.
Ceremonial public book burnings took place throughout Germany. Many books were torched solely because their authors were Jews. The exclusion of Jews from German cultural life was highly visible, ousting their considerable contribution to the German press, literature, theater, and music.
Jews were banned from universities; Jewish actors were dismissed from theaters; Jewish authors’ works were rejected by publishers; and Jewish journalists were hard-pressed to find newspapers that would publish their writings. Famous artists and scientists played an important role in this campaign of dispossession and party labeling of literature, art, and science. Some scientists and physicians were involved in the theoretical underpinnings of the racial doctrine. www.yadvashem.org...#!prettyPhoto
Those about quotes about the rise of the Nazi's, today one could change the word Jew to SWM's in all of that, and it'd read coherently in line with what is already happening today with this social justice front. It's all propaganda, and that propaganda is all about identity politics (like the Nazi's). Where the Nazi's had the Jews to blame all of their problems on, SJW's have the straight white male "Patriarchy" conspiracy to blame all of their percieved oppression on. Where the Nazi's burned Jewish books, SJW's on college campuses are redefining the English language in ways that leaves no room for the future of the Comedian profession.
10 Most Absurd Things Banned On Politically Correct College Campuses
While some crusaders of political correctness may seek to ban offensive words from our vernacular, others have begun to attack correct grammar as offensive. UCLA professor Val Rust thought he was just doing his job by correcting the spelling and grammatical errors he found in his students’ papers in a graduate-level class, but when students got their papers back, some of them alleged that the spelling and grammar corrections were a form of microaggression against the students, some of whom were minorities.
Trigger warnings are warnings that the ensuing content contains strong writing or images which could unsettle those with mental health difficulties. Angus Johnston, a history professor at the City University of New York, said that trigger warnings can be a part of "sound pedagogy," noting that students encountering potentially triggering material are "coming to it as whole people with a wide range of experiences, and that the journey we're going on together may at times be painful. It's not coddling them to acknowledge that. In fact, it's just the opposite." Students at UC Santa Barbara passed a resolution in support of mandatory trigger warnings for classes that could contain potentially upsetting material. Professors would be required to alert students of such material and allow them to skip classes that could make them feel uncomfortable. en.wikipedia.org...
On April 8, 1933, the Main Office for Press and Propaganda of the German Student Union proclaimed a nationwide "Action against the Un-German Spirit", which was to climax in a literary purge or "cleansing" ("Säuberung") by fire. Local chapters were to supply the press with releases and commissioned articles, sponsor well-known Nazi figures to speak at public gatherings, and negotiate for radio broadcast time. On the 8th of April, the Student Union also drafted the Twelve Theses which deliberately evoked Martin Luther and the historic burning of "Un-German" books at the Wartburg festival on the 300th anniversary of the posting of Luther's Ninety-Five Theses. The theses called for a "pure" national language and culture. Placards publicized the theses, which attacked "Jewish intellectualism", asserted the need to "purify" German language and literature, and demanded that universities be centres of German nationalism. The students described the "action" as a response to a worldwide Jewish "smear campaign" against Germany and an affirmation of traditional German values. en.wikipedia.org...

Yet I only see disrespectful and violent liberals "protesting" Trump's events and physically assaulting Trump supporters and preventing them from leaving.

If they include themselves in the group of criminal illegals and terroists that is their problem for believing propagandists and the biased media misrepresenting Trump's actual statements and positions.

I suggest everyone with common sense to do more research on this highly important subject.
