Let's count the similarities

I've been saying it for awhile, the similarities are numerous and should be noted.

-call to oust foreigners from the country
-call to have rights of a religious group curtailed
-call to have religious groups wear identification and have a database tracking them
-calls to make nation "great again"
-appeals to Christian belief, but then speaks against Christ of the Bible
-appeals to authoritarian control and promise to violate existing laws


I could go on, but then Trump made it too easy the other night. He asked people at multiple rallies to pledge their support to him with a raised right hand.




It's just not acceptable anymore.

It's really amazing, how many similarly awkward threads are popping up in cyberspace.

Lets count the current forum arguments against the similarities-

1. Trump doesnt speak german.
2. I dont want to hear it
3. I hate nazis and youse guys make me sick

So far thats the level of argument against the obvious parallels. Any new ones?

You are correct. That's your level of argument.

Yes, I do care. This remark was made in spite of you guys comparing him with Hitler.
Trump does not need to speak German. He is perfectly fine speaking English the way he does.
You and everybody else should speak or understand German in order to make a distinction between the 2 characters. You would quickly find out how absurd this comparison is.

Besides, this type of comparison is simply the lowest kind of smear that anybody could possibly spout out at someone else.
Esp. those who use this kind of smear in the political arena are unwittingly forfeiting any credibility.

Makes sense?

How about this. My father is German. He lived in Germany under Hitler. He is a survivor or Auschwitz and he see similarities between some of the rhetoric of Hitler and Trump.

It's not a smear. There are similarities. No one here is saying Trump is the same as Hitler. We are saying there are similarities that are disturbing.

The same thing was done with Bush, Obama and Hillary I think.

So what?

They are not disturbing to me and I don't see how being an Auschwitz survivor would make for a special qualification on discrediting Trump's campaign.

As I stated before. This kind of comparison is the lowest kind of smear any criticizer could possibly come up with.
