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.
