The Trump Cult is indeed a Hitler like creation. Think about it, Republicans used to

  • support NATO and our Allies
  • supported FREE Trade with No Tariffs
  • supported and defended LAW ENFORCEMENT, as in the FBI and Justice Dept.
  • Reducing the Deficit
  • agreed that Russia is our enemy
  • wanted to destroy or kill Kim Jong Un, but Trump LOVES HIM

Unforunately, we see a strong parallel with 1930s Germany because none of the above is true anymore. The number one criteria in today's Republican Party is how strongly you support Comrade Trump (not America).

 

If that isn't Hitler like, you're eyes are closed.


What do "we" see as Hitler-like in the actions of President Trump? Looking at the list, I don't think Hitler LOVED Un nor supported NATO. And I doubt anyone called him "Comrade".

Well at least now I understand why the RW are screeching about Cult.    Apparently, they are not too bright as the "screamer" was not a liberal.      Mark was a Repub.   

 

Most  here are not historians, but were educated in the 50-60's and were taught the history of WWII.  

 

But then the hypocrisy of the current Repubs is that they support Israel, but not followers of the Jewish religion.  They denounce people here who are against fascism.  What  do they support?

'HITLER-LIKE' FIGURE MAY EMERGE UNDER TRUMP 'CULT OF PERSONALITY'

REPUBLICAN MARK SANFORD WARNS 'HITLER-LIKE' FIGURE MAY EMERGE UNDER TRUMP 'CULT OF PERSONALITY'

 

Outgoing South Carolina Republican congressman Mark Sanford cautioned Americans against accepting easy promises from a "Hitler-like character," comparing the Nazi Germany leader's post-World War I rise to today's political climate.

 

 

Sanford was painted as a "never Trumper" prior to his June GOP congressional primary loss and previously warned South Carolinians against blind loyalty to Trumpism being a "cancerous growth" in the party. And in his send-off message posted to Facebook Wednesday, the 1st congressional district representative cited Adolf Hitler's rise to power as one reason to be concerned about President Donald Trump's "cult of personality." Sanford urged a return to a "reason-based republic."

 

 

"We are living in a weird time on this front right now," began Sanford, in a lengthy farewell Facebook post. "It’s important that we go back to our roots as a reason-based republic. We seem to flirt with populism about every hundred years in this country, and it seems we are in our latest courtship given the era of Trump. But a cult of personality is never what our Founding Fathers intended. We in fact were to be a nation of laws and not men."

 

 

"We are headed for a shipwreck if we don’t change course," Sanford noted. 

 

 

The GOP candidate who defeated Sanford in the June primary, former Rep. Katie Arrington, blamed her general election defeat in November on Sanford, The State reported at the time. Democrat Joe Cunningham won the 1st District last month in a stunning victory.

 

 

Sanford explicitly noted he was not "likening Trump to Hitler," but nonetheless cautioned South Carolina voters and Americans as a whole not to accept "easy promises" from leaders of any kind.

"[I]nevitably a strong man comes along and offers easy promises. He says that he can take care of it for us. People desperate for a change accept his offer. They have to give up a few freedoms in the equation to get more security. It doesn’t work out so well, as Hayek’s book in this instance is about the rise of Hitler in post-WWI German history," Sanford continued.

 

 

"I want to be clear and explicit that I am not likening Trump to Hitler, but the forces at play could lead to a future Hitler-like character if we don’t watch out. It must be remembered that another thing that Benjamin Franklin said was that he who trades his freedom for security, deserves neither. Indeed, how true."
