When will we ever learn

The more one becomes familiar with Hitler’s behavior as he came to power in Germany, the more similarities are revealed in Trump’s behavior. Their unrelenting determination certainly parallels.
The current Government shut down is a classic example. Trump is bound and determined to have his way. He is willing to sacrifice the well-being of Government workers and others negatively impacted by his decision to shut down parts of the Government to force his will on a people. Trump like Hitler makes dealing with him very difficult and history suggest many who have had conflict him eventually give up and allow him to have his way. Another tactic he uses with success is the constant introduction of new issues, situations and problems into the fray.  Notice how difficult it is for opponents to get a clear understanding of what Trump is really up to. An understanding of where he is trying to take the Republican Party and this nation seems clear today, and just as unclear the next day.
Those opposing him and many in his camp, grow weary of battles with him and some are inclined to give up and let him have his way. This is right out of Hitler’s play book.  Hitler loved loud spirited enthusiastic crowds. So does Trump. Hitler loved parades. Trump wanted one, but was denied a parade.

Germany, apparently did not have in place in its government a system that could or would deny Hitler ascension to the leader of Germany.  Absent the ability and or willingness to control Hitler, Germany and the world were led into the worst war to ever plague mankind.  Is America void of the necessary tools to prevent Trump from taking many of the actions of Hitler? Will America’s checks and balances spelled out in the Constitution, be implemented to harness the run-away dictatorial   antics of Trump?

My final question is:” When will we ever learn?”

Two Peas in a Pod

 

Research into Hitler’s early life, reveals a disturbing likeness to Donald Trump. Their behavior is strikingly similar in several ways. For instance, Hitler pushed wild alternatives to what was viewed as norms and wild exaggerations formed his pattern of thinking. As with Hitler, Trump pushes his obvious hateful feelings to the extremes and magnifies things of little importance. Hitler was obsessed with fear and hatred of the Jews and felt they were a threat to the German way of life. Trump feels the social fabric of America is under attack by those coming from south of the US border and is willing to take drastic measures to see that his fears are not realized.   A writer described Hitler as being born of hatred. Listening to the tirades and rants of Trump, one can easily come to the conclusion that his behavior is something that is inbred in him. He did not begin to feel and behave the way he does since becoming President. Hitler has been referred to as a master of the art of brilliant fraudulence and inspired swindling. This fits Trump to a T. Trump has been pulling the wool over the eyes of many people for many years.This includes, The Internal Revenue Service, New York, City, County and State Officials.

There is one striking difference between Hitler and Trump. Hitler convinced the masses that he was one of them and felt their pain. There is certainly some truth in this claim. Trump is totally different.  Somehow, some way, Trump convinced a significant number of American voters that he is one of them and share their pain and misery-their feeling of being left out- feelings that what rightfully belongs to them is slowly being taken away-feelings that they as a class of people are being denied their rights and political control.  Of course, nothing could be further from the truth.  Utilizing the power of propaganda, Trump with the aid of Conservative Talk Radio, Fox, and it mouth-pieces,  convinced millions of people that Trump was suffering as they were. Hitler understood the power of propaganda. Trump understands the power of Propaganda. It is alleged that Hitler said of propaganda” You must keep it up until it creates a faith and people no longer know what is imagination and what is reality.” How do you think Trump was able to convince many Christians to forgo their religious doctrine and get on the Trump Train? Simple, Trump knows as Hitler knew-people are drawn to religion by the message and the messenger. Many Christians decided they would rather take their chances with Trump rather than what they proclaim to believe.

Hitler wrested power from the German Government and gave himself total control of the power to make and enforce laws.  Look at what is taking place with the Government shut down. Trump is saying, with the blessing of the Senate, I will make and implement laws as I see fit. This is in total contrast to how the Constitution defines US law making. The power of the United States Congress has been usurped by Trump, with hardly a peep by Congressional members, especially Republicans. American is in the same situation Germany was in the early thirties.  Ignoring what is taking place, is extremely dangerous and the consequences of non-action to rein in Trump reeks of unimaginable damage to America’s soundness.

We had better pay attention

LC's Commentary

Take the time to read what Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf.  The actions Trump and his cronies’ take are reflected in what Hitler wrote. Read the following very carefully, and absorb and reflect on what he wrote. Does his assessment of people reflect the thinking capacity of millions of Americans? Are we that easily taken advantage of? One casual look at how so-called Christians have latched on to Trump, suggest Hitler may be right in his assessment of people, especially today’s Americans.

“Propaganda must always address itself to the broad masses of the people. (…) All propaganda must be presented in a popular form and must fix its intellectual level so as not to be above the heads of the least intellectual of those to whom it is directed. (…) The art of propaganda consists precisely in being able to awaken the imagination of the public through an appeal to…

Comparing Trump to Hitler

Is it possible to compare Trump’s behavior to Hitler’s behavior without mentioning the Holocaust?  Indeed it is.  All one has to do is define the correct time period used in the comparison.  Forget about what took place in Germany in the late thirties and forties and concentrate on what Hitler was during in the early thirties. Look at how he came to power, and the tactics utilized. Delve into the propaganda machine he developed and utilized to its maximum capability. Take a good look at how he captured the imagination of millions of Germans utilizing fear tactics and imaginary situations. Take a look at how Hitler convinced people to supplant their core beliefs (right and wrong) and replace them with what he said was right and wrong. Look at the people Hitler removed from Germany’s governmental configuration, and who replaced them.

People, look at how much emphasis Trump puts on the economy. Hitler did the same thing-virtually full employment and low interest rates.  Look at how Hitler instilled fear in the hearts and minds of those he viewed as pure Aryans. Trump is doing the same thing. In a very sneaky way, he is saying America is for those who lay claim to the fact that their ancestors built America, therefore it belongs to them.

People, do not think for one minute that Trump is the sole cause of the problems facing this nation. Hitler was not the sole instigator of the problems that eventually brought the great Nation of Germany to total ruin. Hitler had his Goebbels, Himmler, Speer, Heydrich, and Goring. Hitler also had in his entourage a relatively unknown and obscure fellow named   Hermann Esser and another better known fellow, Julius Streicher. Both of the fellows were adept in the art of propaganda and did wonders to getting out the Hitler message.

Trump has his propaganda machine well-staffed with the likes of Hannity, Limbaugh, Levin, and Cunningham, Hewitt, Gallagher, Coulter, Ingram, and a whole host of lesser known blowhards.  This propaganda machine, with Hannity at the helm, has ready access to the White House and President Trump as well as Trump minions. Trump and his administration has ready access to Fox News and Fox Business Network 24 hrs. Per day.  Access to Conservative Radio is virtually unlimited. Trump has many Conservative politicians eating out of his hand. One must wonder why they are so afraid of him. What does he have on them?  The Senate, headed by McConnell, power has been totally usurped by Trump.

As with Hitler and his propaganda machine, Trump has the same access to his propaganda machine. A machine, utilize frequently, to broadcast lies, half-truth and instill fear in the minds of his followers. This tactic is very successful and methods to counteract it is very difficult.

Why is it so difficult? Simple, he is using the tried and true methodology utilized by Hitler. As with Hitler, Trump manages to mix Propaganda with policies. Look at his latest fiasco. His propaganda about building a wall and making Mexico pay for it, has now become a policy issue. Trouble is, those dedicated to him and his policies and methodology for getting things done (making deals) fails to separate the two.  Hitler had a way of riling people up. Trump does the same thing. Hitler says, continually emphasize certain issues with your base and do it persistently. Hitler, said, do not give you foe credit for doing anything good. Trump does the very same things.

Any right-thinking person, doing some research on Hitler’s behavior in his early years in power and compare them with Trump’s current behavior, must arrive at the conclusion that there is a lot of similarities in their behavior.
