TRUMP: The shoe fits

| September 16, 2020 1:00 AM

Hitler is a good comparison when you look at all of Trump’s tweets and public statements. As in the reign of Hitler, people were misled with propaganda that was totally untrue but presented over and over as the truth, very similar to what Trump has done daily here in America. He makes statements that are designed to vilify and outcast anyone who disagrees with him. Anyone who takes issue with his untrue statements is targeted and slandered. Anyone who even has an alternative point of view is put down.

Another comparison to the National Socialists of Germany (Nazis) is that Hitler commanded that his followers take it upon themselves to punish anyone who did not follow his doctrine. Intellectuals, teachers, scientists, Democratic Socialists, Communists, Gypsies, Jews and people of color were targeted. See any comparisons in Trump’s threats (tweets)?

Read the history of the time and Hitler’s reign, and see if the comparison to Trump’s term in office, so far, strikes a chord.
