Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner turned the tables on the Left — which constantly invokes Nazism to attack President Trump and his supporters — by saying actress Debra Messing’s proposed blacklisting of Trump supporters in Hollywood reminds her of the early days of Nazi Germany.
Messing ignited fiery backlash after tweeting, “Please print a list of all attendees please. The public has a right to know.”
Messing was reacting to news of a forthcoming Beverly Hills fundraiser for President Trump.

Messing was doubling-down on a similar tweet by her “Will & Grace” co-star Eric McCormack calling for the outing and blacklisting of Hollywood Trump supporters.
On the Fox News show “Outnumbered,” host Harris Faulkner says the entire incident reminded her of the threats made against Jews by Nazi thugs in the early days of Nazi Germany.
“What you are doing is trying to destroy someone’s livelihood, destroy who they are, basically cordon them off from the rest of society because you disagree with what they are saying,” Faulkner said. “You know what that reminds me of? Very early days in Germany.”

Faulkner added: “My husband is Jewish, and we’ve talked about this recently. Because of your faith, because of your beliefs, and because some thought that was outside of where it needed to be, they would go after your businesses and livelihood. I’m not saying that that is the slippery slope here. I’m just reminding people that it did happen.”
Even left-wing Fox News contributor Jessica Tarlov agreed with Faulkner’s observation that the leftist calls for the blacklisting of Trump supporters reminds her of what Nazis did.
Tarlov said the recent calls for blacklisting conservatives is “reminiscent and frighteningly similar to things that went on in early Nazi Germany.
She continued, “I said this when Joaquin Castro published the names of Trump supporters in Texas. I’m very uncomfortable with it because I’m scared about violence. Of people actually being attacked. I know businesses are important, and livelihoods.”
As BizPac Review reported, after Joaquin Castro outed Trump donors, many of them received death threats and hate-filled voicemail messages.
Harris Faulkner asked Tarlov if she views this public shaming of politicians’ supporters “as a slippery slope.”
Tarlov answered yes. She said the current deranged state of political polarization in this country “scares me.”
Keep in mind that it is only the left that is threatening to have Trump supporters publicly shamed, shunned, and fired from their jobs.
Jessica Tarlov, a left-wing Trump-hater, remarked, “People are so amped up about politics and ideology. I’m really uncomfortable with it.”
The Hollywood fundraiser for Trump is scheduled for September 17 and is being hosted by RNC chair Ronna McDaniel and Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale. Tickets go from $1,000 to $100,000 per couple.
Not surprisingly, no address was publicly given for the event — presumably because the venue doesn’t want to be vandalized or barraged with unhinged protesters.
Fox News host Greg Gutfeld slammed these actors who want to name, shame, and blacklist Trump supporters, saying the stunt is reminiscent of the rabid McCarthyism of the 1960s.
“Like Joe McCarthy, Eric McCormack sees ruining a career as a viable method to encourage lockstep,” Gutfeld said.
