Just a little something to keep in mind.

The sort of unspoken rule in politics is not to compare politicians to Hitler.

But to be honest in this case I find it unavoidable.

    This article is right on the money. This is exactly how Hitler gained power.

    Why would a teacher suggest anyone turn on CNN to see anything but endless commercials and never-ending mindless, moronic chit-chat? C'mon man!

    PBS is airing a 3 part series on how exactly Hitler rose to power in Germany...very timely indeed. Following that are more shows on how the war started and world leader interactions, etc. I watched a Naomi Wolfe lecture years ago about the rise of Hitler and was amazed when she described Germany as being like us, modern and progressive...I never knew that, or just didn't think about it. There was a list of 10 things that existed and she compared them to our country today....frightening to say the least. Ivana stated more than once that Trump kept a book of Hitler's speeches at his bedside so it doesn't take a genius to figure out where his ideas come from. The sad part is the sheer amount of truly ignorant, racist haters that live in this country. I have found that out just at my dog park...a place where friends meet to be sociable, not anymore.

    It's pretty universally accepted under Godwin's Law that the first person with the Hitler/Nazi reference automatically loses the argument; however in Trump's case, the comparison seems inevitable.

    And THAT is scary as hell.

      Rumsfeld said “Hey, General Franks, I need a plan to invade Iraq.” And Franks said, “I’ve got one for you, boss.” And it basically was a replay of the plan for “Operation Desert Storm,” meaning that it assumed a U.S coalition of about 500,000 troops.

      So here we are now....

    Thanks for proving what an idiot you are by comparing Trump to Hitler. It shows you know nothing about how Hitler came to power, nothing about history, and nothing about Trump.

    9:13 you seem to have comprehension problems with this post. It is referencing an article written by someone other than this blogger. Of course you can not get it your a trumpster.

    So many similarities, too little time. Xenophopbia, treatment of women, vile hatred and one acorn short of a pair. But I always envisioned Nazi Trump with a more noble Napoleonic hand in the jacket stance.

  15. It is long past time that we continue promoting the falsehood that the German people elected Hitler. In fact, the Nazi party peaked electorally in 1930, at about 33% of the vote, and was on a fairly steep downhill slide after that. Hitler became Reichschancellor when some very cynical backroom maneuvering by right wing politicians managed to manipulate the then-senile Hindenburg into appointing him. Hitler was never elected in anything resembling s fair election; in fact, a fair election was never held in Germany from 1933 until the end of World War II.
