Washington Post depicts Republican 'collaborators' as rats: 'Nazi-style propaganda'

The image, which appeared in the Sunday issue, bears the headline, "All of the state attorneys general and U.S. Congress members who collaborated with President Trump in his attempt to subvert the Constitution and stay in office" and includes well over a hundred named Republicans.

The depiction was met with harsh criticism.

"Today's Washington Post depiction of Republicans as 'rats' was reprehensible," wrote Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ).

"Democrats and their allies in the media can't win the war of ideas, so they resort to dangerous and despicable personal attacks that purposefully endanger the freedom of their political opponents."

"The Nazi-style depiction in today's paper is a foreshadowing of outrageous attacks that will endanger our liberties and incite violence against the Post's chosen political enemies," he added.

This is rich! In the late 1990s Washington Post (WP) sued the founder, Jim Robinson, of the website (FR). Their rational was that because FR was reposting WP articles so FR members could comment on them that it was depriving WP of internet traffic. The reality was that the WP didn't want their articles to be commented on without the WP being able to moderate the comments. The New York Times joined the law suit. Anyhow, it was at that time that someone on FR created, what is perhaps the shortest meme. Simply put DemocRATS. The WP and NYT won the law suit. The result was that FR could post excerpts, not the whole article. FR had an inclusive audience/membership that tolerated (small l) libertarian ideals such as the NAP. I could see where the censorship was headed -- jump ahead to the creation of Facebook. I saw more and more websites close their comment sections in favor of the Facebook app. Centralized moderators/censors.
