    Default Seriously. isn't what trump is doing what Germany was doing?

    Didn't the greatest generation, as we call them, fight WWII against a German government that was doing what our current administration is doing?

    Wonder how those vets might feel.

    Now we're stuck with your generation . . . . Boomers . . . . Effing Boomers, effed it all up.
    In the US this perverted idea of “blood and soil” over “constitutional principles” is the most radical and anti-democratic and anti-Conservative idea I have heard in my lifetime.

    Is Trump eating schnitzel and building VW’s again?

    So. If there was a way he could work it out, Trump would try to annex Canada. This is just one incident meh, Trump is using his playbook from the day he went to prison in 1924, wrote Mein Kamph. His efforts to gain power over Bismarck. It's all there in black and white. Instead of Jews, it's hispanics under the gun.Oh yes, and Muslims.Hitler wanted ayrian society, Trump wants a white America.

    The OP was completely devoid of specifics, so I added a couple possibilities.

    One thing Trump's election accomplished is to trash someone's law about how long an internet discussion went on before referencing Hitler

    When Holocaust survivors are seen the same thing happening in the US as they did in Germany in the 30's, you can not exclude Hitler's name in conversations.

    I had no idea Trump went to prison in 1924 and wrote a book. Game changer!

    I had no idea that TRUMP WAS in the military either, Hitler was WW1.

    I doubt he will make a Hitler but a Mussolini with a bigger budget is on the cards. Either way he is dangerous.

    Medals for what, showing up to class on time, using a hanky instead of his sleeve?

    But what about Hitler of the 1930s?

    It is entirely within reason to compare Trump to early Hitler.

    Godwin's law does not apply.

    It really isn’t funny. It scares the crap out of me and I can’t imagine what surviving European Theater vets must think.

    thankfully, we were not starving like the Germans were in the 30s, this allows us to fight against this proto-dictator instead of worrying about if we were going to eat tonight or not. If he had come into power in 2008, it might have been a much different outcome

    My father fought in the South Pacific, 1942-'45. He is a relatively conservative man and doesn't like this one bit. He stood up and expressed it one night at the dinner table. "I fought in a war to end this sh!t" what happened?
    He is the only survivor from his ship.

    The Weimar Republic had very strict firearm laws. The Third Reich loosened firearm laws for those who toed the party line.

    Personally, I don't understanf why more people in historically oppressed classes aren't arming themselves. Do they believe the government will protect them while at the same time deriding everything the government is doing?

    It was asked if what Trump is doing what Germany was doing. There is an increased effort for gun control by the government. So I would say, that the answer is partially, yes. Just not by Trump alone.

    Ok, I will say it in a way the majority of this site can understand:

    Trump is Super Hitler and his cronies are a band of Triple Nazi's!

    Give him a hug for me.

    Over the many years I've lived, I've often thought how different things would be if they'd let Hitler into art school. Wonder if those who turned him down ever realized the impact they had on the world.
