According to a new Rasmussen poll, 53% of voters now agree with the statement that there is “a group of politicized thugs at the top of the FBI who are using the FBI … as Joe Biden’s personal Gestapo.” For reference, the Gestapo was the official secret police of Nazi Germany.

Conservative Review reports:

The sentiment resonates with Republicans in particular, with 76% agreeing with the statement. Democrats, on the other hand, mainly (57%) disagree. Among those affiliated with either party, 49% agree with the characterization of the FBI as President Joe Biden’s “personal Gestapo” and 38% disagree.

The statement was originally made by Roger Stone, an adviser to former President Donald Trump, in an November 28, 2021 interview on John Catsimatidis’ WABC 770 AM radio show. In the interview, Stone criticized both the FBI’s raid on the home of James O’Keefe, Project Veritas founder (conducted as part of an investigation into reports of a stolen diary belonging to Biden’s daughter Ashley), and what he argued was “harassment” by the House committee investigating the January 6 Capitol Hill protests. Stone, himself, was subject to a pre-dawn FBI raid executed by over a dozen special agents in tactical gear in January 2019.

Rasmussen Reports conducted its survey of 1,000 U.S. likely voters on August 15 and 16, one week after the FBI raided the former president’s Mar-a-Lago residence.

In the survey, questioners asked: “Did the FBI’s recent raid on the Florida home of former President Donald Trump make you trust the FBI more or trust the FBI less? Or did the Trump raid not make much difference in your trust in the FBI?”

While more than half od Democrats who responded to the survey said the raid made them trust the FBI more, 70% of GOP voters said it made them trust the Bureau less. CR reported, ” Nearly half (46%) of unaffiliated voters said the raid made them trust the FBI less, whereas only 18% said it improved their trust of the agency.”

Growing up in Germany during and after the War I’m well aware of the Gestapo and the SS. This Raid on Mar-A-Lago reminded me of these entities and I think they did it for the shock value. They hate President Trump so much they’ll try anything to prevent him from running again! The FBI and the DOJ leadership are Biden’s thugs and we don’t deserve that along with the destruction of America!

Democrats aren’t innately stupid but they’re woefully unable to admit mistakes.  Everyone knows by now that our CIC (Coprolite in Chief) is the biggest mistake in U.S. history. As the 3rd worst president in U.S. history commented, don’t underestimate his ability to f*** things up. Democrat voters did and he did. Now they’re faced with changing their vote, withholding it or jeopardizing the nation’s survivability.

Also at risk are themselves, their families and all those wrong-headed conservatives. The left wing has a long list of replacements including the Veep who was not there, a non-native-American socialist, the former mayor of small Indiana town, a governor anxious to escape his self-made disaster — or (wait for it) — HILDO!! Tadaaa, the first woman president and Slick who keeps national secrets in his sock drawer.

I must agree with Helga. Having lived in West Germany, I see the differences in the psyche of our two nations. The Germans even today still follow an imperative of serving the ‘collective’ and you can be turned in anonymously to the Polizei or accused (angezeigt) and punished without having to face your accuser. I can but imagine how bad this must have been during the days of the Third Reich. My informants told me that Hitler succeeded because of rampant FEAR. They knew all about you, they knew where you live, and an inconspicuous knock on your door at 2:00AM could see you spirited away to disappear forever. Or they could search your quarters for artifacts of which the ruling party disapproved. It was immaterial whether you were at home or not. OR worst of all, they could target your innocent family. The FBI seems to be flirting with tactics of the Gestapo or the KGB.
