Ole Miss Professor Compares Pro-Trump Teens to Hitler Youth

If you're a young conservative and you're applying to colleges, you might wanna breeze past Ole Miss as a possible place to get a higher education.

Earlier this year University of Mississippi professor James Thomas claimed "MAGA teens are a modern day Hitlerjugend."

The comment sparked controversy, not surprisingly, and now that a few months have passed Thomas is doubling down on his claim.

On July 17th Thomas said, "When I said MAGA teens are modern day Hitlerjugend, I meant it. What we’re watching at this rally is the aesthetics of fascism."

Thomas clearly doesn't understand history - the Hitlerjugend were Nazis, not fascists.

Nazism and fascism are not the same thing. Fascism is loosely defined as a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control; it's kind of like a cross between socialism and corporatism. Nazism, on the other hand, is a set of political beliefs associated with the Nazi Party of Germany.

You'd think a professor of sociology would at least know these common political terms, but not Thomas. 

The average cost of tuition for out-of-state students at Ole Miss is about $22,012
