MSNBC's Chris Matthews, the host of "Hardball," made waves Saturday when he compared Sen. Bernie Sander's (D-VT) victory in Nevada to the Nazis overrunning the Maginot Line in France in 1940.

Lefties – and those who are predominantly Bernie supporters – called on Matthews to resign or for the television network to fire the long-time host.

Derek Hunter pointed out the one thing conservatives have said for years: the left loves to compare President Trump to Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. They throw the term around willy nilly. The word was used against one of their own and suddenly there's moral outrage.

No one should be throwing around the word "Nazi" willy nilly. Hitler and the Nazis were some of the worst people in human history (if not the worst). Likening every small action to these monsters does a disservice to the men, women and children who were murdered at the ends of evil. 

Was what Matthews said out there? Of course. It caught us all by surprise. But the bigger issue here shouldn't be that one host on a lefty news network used the term. It's that using that term broadly – and almost daily – is acceptable for people in this country.
