One thing that is easy to notice on Twitter is how many proclaimed supporters of Donald Trump, in addition to proudly changing their handle to some combination including the word “Deplorable”, are also anti-semitic.
They could, of course be taking their cue from some of Trump’s supporters. like David Duke. Here he manages to combine both anti-semitism and a racist dog-whistle in the same tweet:

I remind readers once again of the remarkable similarity between tweets like this one and the sort of public comments that the Nazi party made in the early 1930’s when Adof Hitler was consolidating his power in Germany.
