Journalists Spread Conspiracy Theory That DHS Document Contains Secret Nazi Code

A number of liberal Twitter users and journalists spread a conspiracy theory Thursday insisting a Department of Homeland Security document contained a secret Nazi code.

In February, DHS put out a press releaseentitled "We Must Secure The Border And Build The Wall To Make America Safe Again," a fact-sheet making the case for President Donald Trump's proposed border wall. "When it comes to stopping drugs and illegal aliens across our borders, border walls have proven to be extremely effective," it argued.

The press release went largely unnoticed until months later, when a tweet accusing the document of being a dog whistle for Nazis garnered nearly 7,000 retweets. The viral claim suggested the headline was a reference to "Fourteen Words," common white supremacist credos. The most widely known variation states, "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children."

"This is an actual story on an official government website with a 14-word headline starting with ‘we must secure,'" Twitter user Lauie Voss noted. "This is not an accident. There are actual Nazis-who-call-themselves-Nazis at DHS."

Well the Nazis never died, they got employed by US in operation paper clip... And when they came to work, so did their views and beliefs... Everyone thinks Hitler was a stupid fool, in which he was not!!! He did get away from being captured and he did not kill himself... And for those who are wondering, Angela Merkel is a daughter of Hitler... She even clinches her same fist and slams it down on the podium like Hitler did!!!!!

You have to read it backwards, though, right?

Social media is a curse that will severely damage humanity.
