Anyone who understands the history of Nazi Germany knows that Hitler was considered a buffoon who had no chance of being a leader.
Look how that turned out.
Anyone who thinks a President Trump will suddenly change into someone reasonable and passably sane is in for the same kind of surprise Germans had back then.
Listen: I’m not someone given to panic. Back in the 1970s, people went nuts over a Nixon Presidency. Aside from his criminality, America actually progressed under him. His own view of the Presidency was that Americans picked someone to represent them internationally. Under Nixon we got things such as the EPA. The first visit to Communist China. He let Congress do what it wanted, basically. Wikipedia is absolutely correct here. I lived then. I was aware of what was going on. Nixon never scared me.
Trump scares the fuck out of me.
He wants to round up “illegals” and mass deport them? That’s the talk of Hitler with Brown Shirts! It doesn’t matter how “illegal” someone is. We have the Bill of Rights — and those are human rights, not limited to “legal Americans.”
He bans reporters and has them removed? How the hell will we ever get any coverage of what he’s really up to without a press telling us?
He has dissenters banned from his rallies before he appears? What will he do when people try to assemble in D.C. to protest? Have them shot?
This guy is out of his mind to begin with. He’s not going to change should he win office.
He’ll only get worse.
Just like that guy they called a silly buffoon in Germany.
And if you think Trump is an anomaly, you’d better read the following link. He could be the first of many.
