And how does that relate to Hitler????


Hitler did not have a majority in the Reichstag, so he used "Executive Orders" to circumvent the process, eventually staging the burning of the Reichstag which led to Krystal Nacht which drive the public mood to give him the absolute power he craved. Trumpettes are already showing their support by slaughtering their fellow citizens. An attack on Congress to justify a call to Marshall Law is not far behind.


After his first two years, Obama did not have the majority of the Congress - was he a Nazi?

How did the President describe it that fits your obsession with Hitler?

 

What Republicans will not admit is the futility of basing anything on what this POTUS says - he has told more lies while in office than all other Presidents combined throughout our History. The Flat Earth Society has a better track record of making factual statements than lil donny trump.

I had not heard that Hitler lied about a crowd size at his inauguration. Do you have something about that which you'd like to share?

 

If you want to know what Der Trumper is up to, consider his ACTIONS, not his words. His ACTIONS have prompted scumbags to slaughter innocents in their place of worship, schools, on the streets and in their homes. He encourages them to support jailing his political opponents and cheer when he tells them to beat the c**p out of them at his political rallies.

All of that is a bunch of ......... "untruths". Except for the "street" way of phrasing how to deal with paid disrupters at events.

 

Der Fuhrer focused the violence on Jews.

Der Trumper focuses violence on non-whites and Muslims.

He has done more for black unemployment than any President in recent history. You might want to reconsider the black part. As to your 'brown" part - i assume you are referring to enforcing our borders when it comes to illegal invaders - hardly the gas chambers. And as to Muslims, he only followed through on the advice of his predecessor who by your standards must have been a racist.

 

Hitler ruled by decree.

lil donny is trying to do it by Executive Order.

He operates within the Constitution and is sometimes hampered by the Courts - hardly Hitleresque. No, as always, you are posted from hatred not truth - and, apparently, an obsession with Hitler.

I believe you might have Presidents mixed up.  Obama was very prolific in attempting to create law by Executive Order.  Congress wouldn't pass the laws he wanted?  No problem, he would just use Executive Orders to accomplish what he wanted.

The parallels between the greatest mass murderer in history and lil Pvt Bonespurs are as obvious as they are numerous. Only the willfully blind cannot admit they exist.

Macron warns against nationalism in apparent rebuke of Trump at WWI commemoration
“Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism,” the French president said in remarks delivered just steps from Trump and more than 80 world leaders.

 
Nationalism is a political, social, and economic system characterized by the promotion of the interests of a particular nation, especially with the aim of gaining and maintaining sovereignty (self-governance) over the homeland.
 
na·tion·al·ism
/ˈnaSH(ə)nəˌlizəm/
noun
noun: nationalism
  1. patriotic feeling, principles, or efforts.

I believe that Macron is wrong.  What is wrong with having patriotic feelings and pride in one's country?   Why shouldn't we have an interest in promoting the interests of our country rather than deferring to other countries that doesn't share our interests?

 

Should we allow other countries to dictate our interests and our way of life?  That is why we salute our veterans today, those who have defended our way of life.

 

 

 

Macron is correct. Nationalism and Hitler go  together, and every Dictatorship has Nationalism as Trump defines it. No we do not salute our veterans today because of nationalism. Every war our current veterans fought in was to defeat nationalism.

neoRepublican Ultranationalism is the antithesis of Nationalism as it puts Der Trumper first. HIS trad war is costing America and Americans thousands of jobs and billions of dollars FOR WHAT?

 

The simpering twit cannot articulate a single thing his "new" trade deal with Mexico and Canada did to improve things for anybody EXCEPT some dairy farmers who wanted to eport more to Canada. On the other side of the coin, HIS deal requires more auto parts be made in MEXICO where labor costs $8/hour taking jobs from AMERICANS who earn $40.hr for the same work. Good for the Corporate Oligarchs who have refused to share any of the windfall profits Der Trumper handed them in his $1.2 Trillion give away, not good for the auto workers who will lose their jobs or their families. Meanwhile, his Twitness is STILL enforcing the tariffs on steel and aluminium, increasing job prospects for the 140,000 workers MAKING steel and aluminium, but causing layoffs for the 6,500,000 workers who USE steel and aluminium.

 

HIS Trade War with China is a fiasco. They have many other suppliers for goods - esp beans, corn and wheat - we no longer sell them and plenty of markets for the stuff they no longer sell us -TVs, I-phones, computers.

 

HIS deal with North Korea is a total sham and his cancellation of military training exercises with the South Koreans puts our 29,000 Troops in danger by leaving them less prepared to repell an attack from the North.

 

HIS trip to honor the WWI Armastice saw him the ONLY World Leader NOT visiting the memorial BECAUSE IT WAS RAINING and might agrivate his bonespurs or somesuch.

 

Trumpettes are disturbingly similar to the joyful Germans who listened to Hitler tell them how good things were going to get IF ONLY they followed him and hated some of their neighbors. Remember how the RW nutjobs had the conspiracy theory about President Obama building huge concnetration camps for his political enemies? those 5036 Troops Der Trumper sent to the border are constructing concentration camps for The Caravan, which historically dwindles to about 100 by the time they get to our border. He knows that, so WHO are all those "houses" REALLY for?

 


O.K. the rant got in the "trad" war, Der Trumper, neoRepublicans, simpering twit, Oligarchs, steel, autos, aluminum, Hitler, Obama, and the caravan - everything but the Reagan tax cuts.

 

But what are your thoughts about having a President who is a nationalist rather than a globalist?
