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.
