Trump Being Compared To Hitler

Certain people compare Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. I've seen people doctor up photos that give Trump a Hitler mustache and Swastikas. This is what I have to say about Trump being compared to Hitler. IT IS RIDICULOUS! Hitler was an evil maniac. Because of him, thousands and thousands of people ended up dead. Trenches had to be dug and dead bodies were tossed into the trenches because of the huge amount of casualties.

Where are the trenches of dead bodies that Trump is responsible for? THERE ARE NONE AND EVERYBODY KNOWS IT! I will admit that Trump is not perfect. He has flaws. If I were to say that Trump is the greatest politician who has ever lived, I would be a liar. Trump is not perfect but he is not another Adolf Hitler and people know it.

Before anymore Trump haters compare Trump to Hitler, they should examine Hillary Clinton. She has flaws just like Trump. People call Trump corrupt. Hillary is corrupt. Many people are aware that she is corrupt but I wish that everybody was aware of it. Trump is no angel but neither is Hillary.

Certain people also used Swastikas when George W. Bush became President Elect in 2000. They tried to make Bush look like Hitler also. Bush wasn't a fantastic President but he was no Adolf Hitler and neither is Trump.

Hitler wasn't Hitler until he was in power.

That's wrong.
Hitler was a politician who believed in the political agenda he was pursuing, Trump is a con artist who is just pandering to some of the more base instincts of his supporters.

Trump isn't compared to Hitler because of the bodies in the trenches. He is compared to Hitler because his rhetoric smacks of Fascism, which include healthy doses of isolationism and grandiosity. His rallies and sloganeering pump up the livestock who are longing for the nostalgic past when men were men and women were barefoot and pregnant--subservient to their masters. It's the Aryan way or the highway--literally. Trump thrives on division--even his slogan "Make America Great Again" implies that this country is currently doomed. Trump's supporters are the angry, disenfranchised who feel they've been cheated by the system, the blacks, the illegals, the educated, the rich and that Trump alone 'will fix it'.
Put another way: it’s not the demagogue that makes the movement, but the followers. The followers BELIEVE every lie--they want a revolution at any cost.
Trump may not be Hitler but he is scary just the same.

I don't know if you've come across him, but I think the nearest parallel is one of Franco's generals who used frequently to broadcast stream-of consciousness extreme-right nonsense and often ended his broadcast with 'Death to Intelligence' (I think that is 'Morte al'intelligencia', but Spanish was never my strong point). I have a hopeful feeling that he died of drink, or something appropriate anyway!

There were no bodies, no trenches until Hitler had been in power for several years. Germany's economy was horrid. They had experienced hyper inflation so bad prices doubled every two days. They were very affected by the US depression. Unemployment was very high. Starvation and homelessness were very real possibilities for millions of Germans. The country was on the verge of collapse and the government was seriously ineffective, partly due to the Nazi party's rather hooliganistic antics and disruptions after they won seats in the government couple of years earlier. Not unlike some of the TEA party republicans who have been somewhat effective in stalemating and gridlocking congress. The last few years have been the most do nothing congresses in history.

Hitler promised to "Make Germany Great Again" His campaign slogan was "Freedom and Bread". He was extremely nationalistic, xenophobic and protectionist. He tapped into the anger, fear and disillusionment of Germany's working class.

Trump has tapped into the same basic (though infinitely milder) anger, fear and disillusionment. His rather sudden rise has completely blind sided the republicans. Even they didn't think he'd be their nominee. Even now many in the party aren't supporting him.

There are some parallels between the countries and the men. So comparisons to Hitler are not entirely inaccurate.
