Progressives tried their best last week to make a thing out of Donald Trump supporters giving Nazi salutes at his “frightening rally in Ohio.” (Tristan Snell tried to pull the same Nazi salute stunt with video from a Doug Mastriano campaign event in Pennsylvania, where some people were so in Nazism that they raised both arms and bowed their heads as if in prayer.) The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin managed to make a whole column out of how you can’t “reach out” to Nazis.
“Ethics guy” Walter Shaub got the ball rolling with three tweets accompanied by this same Reuters photo:
It may seem odd they’d adopt a gesture reminiscent of a nazi salute, but they’ll grow more overt about their nature as their grip tightens. They’ve pulled off the biggest wave of voter suppression in a half century, control the courts & so far mostly got away with a coup attempt. https://t.co/q3Z9FU5iKj

Looks to us like they’re all making the “Number 1” sign.
Of course, irrelevant person Hillary Clinton had to weigh in on the photo, saying how it reminded her of footage of Hitler and how many Germans were inspired to follow him.

She’s still a big draw for the “white, wine, and miserable” crowd of the Dem party.

Hillary Clinton eats babies. Not sure why people listen to her.

She needs to look in a mirror. Most of those she calls “Nazis” just want to be left alone, not have their children groomed in public schools, not have their taxes paying for abortions, etc. She’s the one slapping labels on them, “othering” them, very like what Hitler did.

Could you imagine being married to this shrew? I feel sorry for Bill, he’s got to this see this ugly troll every day

We’ll bet very good money he makes sure he doesn’t.
Democrats are desperate.
Their policies hurt the country, which is in terrible shape. Polls show a #redwave coming. This “NAZI fascist white supremacist” bullshit is ALL they have to run on. It’s for their low-info kool-aid drinking base.
Anyone with a brain knows better.
