The Rise Of The Fourth Reich In America via Jared Yates Sexton

Posted By: ZiLe Ohai - June 15, 2016

Jared Yates Sexton is Assistant Professor of Creative Writing at Georgia Southern University as well as a political correspondent and author. (visit his website here). Sexton attended the Trump rally in North Carolina on June 14th and live tweeted his experience. 

If you ever wondered how the German people could have allowed Hitler to come to power and permitted his atrocities, read Sexton's tweets below.

They're frightening.

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.                                                                                - George Santayana

Will be live tweeting from Trump's rally in Greensboro tonight. I'm sure it'll be measured and thoughtful.
