First they came for the socialists

Our anti-communistic attitude that developed and magnified during the cold war has chilling similarities to Nazi ideology. As Hitler and the Nazis believed communism and socialism to be the greatest evils to Germany, he chose to use communism, democracy and especially socialism-TO UNDERMINE democracy AND socialism. They called it “National Socialism” to destroy both socialism and democracy!

“Although Hitler realized that his ascension to power required the use of the Weimar Republic’s parliamentary system (founded on democratic principles), he never intended for the continuation of democratic governance once in control. Contrarily, Hitler proclaimed that he would “destroy democracy with the weapons of democracy.” (Wikipedia, Political views of Adolf Hitler)

Because Nazism co-opted the popular success of communism among working people while simultaneously promising to destroy communism and offer an alternative to it, Hitler’s anticommunist program allowed industrialists with traditional conservative views (tending toward monarchism, aristocracy, and laissez-faire capitalism) to cast their lot with, and help underwrite, the Nazi rise to power. (Wikipedia, Political views of Adolf Hitler)

Hitler said in Mein Kampf:

“In the years 1913 and 1914 I expressed my opinion for the first time in various circles, some of which are now members of the National Socialist Movement, that the problem of how the future of the German nation can be secured is the problem of how Marxism can be exterminated.” (Wikipedia, Political views of Adolf Hitler)

Hitler often denounced democracy, equating it with internationalism. Since democratic ideals espoused equality for all men, it represented to Hitler and his Nazi ideologues the notion of mob rule and the hatred of excellence. (Wikipedia, Political views of Adolf Hitler)

And these things are relevant in today’s society. Today we have Trump, racist, populist and quite totalitarian, and he plays people against each other just to see who can endure abuse (just look at his last TV show “The Apprentice”). So did Hitler:

Hitler’s leadership style was to give contradictory orders to his subordinates and to place them into positions where their duties and responsibilities overlapped with those of others, to have “the stronger one [do] the job”.[338] In this way, Hitler fostered distrust, competition, and infighting among his subordinates to consolidate and maximise his own power. (Wikipedia, Adolf Hitler)

Sure sounds like Trump’s “your fired” to me!

WE MUST FIND A WAY TO STOP TRUMP! Or history may be repeating itself!!
