Howard Dean Compares Trump’s Voter Base to Neo-Nazis Burning Swastikas

Former Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean on Monday equated President Donald Trump's voter base to Neo-Nazis burning a swastika down in Georgia over the weekend.

Dean, a former Democratic presidential candidate, quote-tweeted a tweet by women's rights activist Amy Siskind that included a link to an article about Neo-Nazis who gathered for a rally over the weekend in Newnan, Georgia

"The neo-Nazi rally on Saturday was met with about 100 counter-protesters, according to the Times, including members from the anti-fascist group antifa, and a large police presence of roughly 700 law enforcement officers. About 10 counter-protestors were arrested, according to reports. Local authorities said some were charged for refusing to removed their masks – in violation of a 1950 state law initially aimed at stopping the Ku Klux Klan," Time reported.

This is not the first time that a Democrat has compared Republican voters to Neo-Nazis. CNN contributor and former Hillary Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon compared Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie to white supremacists back in October.
