Of the people alive today comparable to Adolf Hitler, Kim Jong-un and Nicolas Maduro come to mind.
President Trump? Not so much.
Not even kind of, sort of remotely.
“The Washington Post” would argue the opposite.
The Washington Post published an op-ed Tuesday comparing President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency on the border with the the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party during Germany’s Weimar Republic.
The article, “Emergency powers helped Hitler’s rise. Germany has avoided them ever since,” was written by University of Maryland history professer Jeffrey Herf, who considers Trump’s emergency declaration at the border “absurd.”
Herf admits that “President Trump is not a latter-day Hitler,” though he asserts that the president is “a bundle of authoritarian and illiberal impulses and desires,” and that his actions could lead to tyranny:
Ben Stein is not a fan of Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY). Stein declared in an interview with Fox Business that Alexandria “doesn’t know her a** from her elbow.”
He then went on to say that AOC is promising the same things that Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin once promised.
Talk about a smackdown!
From CNS News:
Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is promisng Americans the same thing brutal dictators promised, and those promises are never realized, Ben Stein explained in a Fox News Channel interview this week.
Stein: “We have a society in which there are an awful lot of people who have no idea that Stalin, Hitler, Mao Tse Tung all came to power promising the same kinds of things that Miss Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is promising.”
Stein: “That led to mass murder, led to dictatorship, and led to genocide.”
Stein: “These promises are old promises, and they invariably lead to bad things. The promise of saying to the people do what you can within the law to make your life better and your family’s life better that system works extremely well. Capitalism is a system that allows people to make something of themselves instead of oppressing other people.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff is a supporter of a man who was an “ally of Adolf Hitler.”
Check it out, per Liberty Nation:
Based on a recent clothing choice, Chakrabarti might justifiably be considered a Nazi sympathizer. But really? Well, yes. In his latest love-fest video for AOC, Chakrabarti is sporting a tee-shirt that features a portrait of Subhas Chandra Bose. Not familiar with this former Indian head of state? Here a few facts:
-Bose was an ally of Adolf Hitler and met with him personally in 1942.
-Bose founded the Free India Legion (FIL) made up of troops captured by Nazi Field Marshal Rommel’s Afrika Korps.
-The FIL swore an oath to Hitler and was under SS command.
-Bose teamed up with the Japanese in 1943.
-Bose was an admirer of the USSR and sought to implement its authoritarian practices in India.
