"The crimes of the Nazis have, for some, obscured the extent to which they relied on murderous insincerity, and the unwillingness of liberal societies to see the Nazis plainly for what they were." Nazis have always been trolls, argues @AdamSerwer: http://on.theatln.tc/rBoI5Ex

RT @GhostPanther: Yee-ouch. That’s gotta sting. Does the @TheAtlantic pull the piece? https://twitter.com/jnmulholland/status/1108115604635037698
Longtime Democratic Party campaign staffers, consultants, speechwriters, and strategists, as well as pundits like Dovere, are clearly afraid of losing influence in a world where Bernie Sanders is a presidential contender.
Update @TheAtlantic added essentially paraphrases a tweet @IsaacDovere sent after Guardian/Guardian editor demanded correction. They're baselessly insisting Guardian isn't telling full truth about David Sirota and Sanders campaign to justify not retracting. It's slimy.
