On Tuesday, March 8, 2016, in the article, Trump Responds to Hitler Comparison, written by David Wright and Gregory Krieg of CNN Politics, we are reminded, there are striking similarities between the notorious Nazi leader, Adolf Hitler, and Presidential hopeful, businessman and reality star, Donald Trump. It’s a sobering and unbelievable comparison, but one that must be looked at, as long as Donald Trump, is a serious contender in the Presidential elections.
When asked about these comparisons Donald Trump said he “doesn’t know about the Hitler comparison…but I would certainly look into it, because I don’t want to offend anybody.”
There are two things that really bother me about his “denial.” First of all, I do not believe for a second, Donald Trump doesn’t want to offend anybody. He has made it quite clear during his campaign, he doesn’t care if he offends anybody. The evidence is on YouTube. Enough, said.
Secondly, I do not believe Donald Trump would have no knowledge being compared to Adolf Hitler, I do believe that he studied Adolf Hitler. Between an Adolf Hitler -Nazi rally film and a Donald Trump rally, the comparisons are quite striking.
Both Hitler and Trumps, rally’s cheers are dripping with jubilant support, as they wave their banners and flags high into the air, while chanting the name of the man, they believe will save them and America. He yells into the microphone his plan for beautifying and fixing their beautiful country. Plans that include discriminatory practices, immigration deportation, and prosecution of high-ranked government officials, and somehow everyone is blind to the absurdities he is saying to their faces. Every time he speaks and smiles, the crowd cheers and worships him. When both men command the crowds to pledge their allegiance, the crowds do so in a thunderous applause, and both men smile smugly to themselves.
A long time ago Donald Trump was an billionaire with too much time on his hands and would occasionally, made us laugh on television, and Hitler was left to the history books as someone who nobody should ever be compared to. Today, Donald Trump is being compared to Hitler, while running for the Oval Office. In the history books, Hitler never achieved his ambitions and the world was lucky he failed. However, what is to be done, if Donald Trump wins the Presidential office?
