Leftist Media Tries to Make Madison Cawthorn a Nazi

Leftists must be terrified of North Carolina congressional candidate Madison Cawthorn. They have beclowned themselves in a desperate attempt to portray the 25-year-old as a Nazi sympathizer for posting a picture of himself visiting the Eagle’s Nest, which is a popular tourist destination. The Instagram caption refers to Hitler as “a supreme evil,” yet we are asked to regard this as evidence that Cawthorn is a Nazi sympathizer:

HuffPost takes the handoff from Jezebel, only to fumble:

“The vacation house of the Führer,” Cawthorn wrote in a caption for the post, addressing Hitler using the reverential term Nazis associated with their leader.

Make note of the new rule. If you refer to anyone by their title, you are being “reverential.”

Actually, Hitler’s official title was “Führer und Reichskanzler.” HuffPost should have spun this as Cawthorn revealing an unsavory degree of familiarity by calling him “Führer” for short.

Cawthorn told HuffPost that the Allied victory “was the history I had in mind” when visiting the Eagle’s Nest. “It was a surreal experience to be remembering their joy in a place where the Nazi regime had plotted unspeakable acts of evil,” he said.

According to Jezebel, however, the candidate has named his real estate company SPQR ― a term popular among white nationalist groups ― and has allegedly displayed Betsy Ross’ version of the American flag, which the Anti-Defamation League says has been appropriated by far-right militias “among other Revolutionary War-era symbols.”

SPQR stands for Senātus Populusque Rōmānus (Roman Senate and People), in reference to the Roman Republic that preceded the Roman Empire. Among sarcastic Italians, it can also stand for “Sono Pazzi Questi Romani” (These Romans are crazy). The Betsy Ross flag stands for American patriotism, which is why Colin Kaepernick doesn’t like it. When leftists started going after our history and heritage, they were never likely to stop with tearing down statues of Robert E. Lee.

The ADL confirms that SPQR and the Betsy Ross flag are not hate symbols. Via Breitbart:

Mark Pitcavage, a senior research fellow for the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism, said the Betsy Ross flag, the SPQR abbreviation and Spartan helmet are not included in the league’s database of hate symbols. Pitcavage said while there are examples of their use by white supremacists … they are used “just as much or more often by nonextremists than extremists.”

Cawthorn responded to the attack by pointing out the obvious:

The Blaze has some background on Cawthorn:

Cawthorn stunned the political world in June when he won the Republican nomination for the election for North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District in a landslide victory. The motivational speaker trounced the GOP candidate who was backed by President Donald Trump, but he also ran in support of the president and his policies.

If he wins in the heavily Republican district, he would become the youngest member of Congress.

Cawthorn was paralyzed from the waist down in a 2014 car accident that nearly took his life.

A guy who might have been euthanized by the Nazis probably isn’t a big fan of them.

Looks like Cawthorn is making the most of the second chance he was given. Good luck to him in fending off future attacks from left-wing propagandists.
