What is with the Hitler parallels?

I have seen all of these comparisons to "dictators and fascists", and yet, I feel fine.

The hyperbole is reaching a fever pitch. I just can't wait for anybody to win and this all be over with. I am tired of being called "stupid and uninformed" because I don't support socialism. I don't mind being called a misogynist for not supporting the talking cervical cancer that is Hillary. Cruz doesn't even register on my give-a-sh*t-o-meter.

Hmmm... after all of that, what choice is left? Voting for Mickey Mouse? Yea. That really does some good.

Honestly, every sniveling sh*t that wants to go out and "protest", (What they are doing is disruption, not protest), they deserve whatever they get.

Guess what, if I am throwing a party at my house, and you come in, talk mad sh*t, you will be thrown out on your a*s. It makes sense. If you refuse, I will put a gun to your head and make you leave. Does that make me a fascist? Nope, it makes me an attentive host whose only interests are the well being of my guests.

There is a parallel for you.

I keep asking my wife's boyfriend this question. He told me to shut up if I want another loan for Bernie.

I really think the 'anti-trump" protesters helped me solidify my support.

Why does anyone support any of these leeches? It isn't as though any of them care anything about the people they're draining. We live in a society administrated by bloodsuckers, and yet we argue over which one will suck the least amount of blood from us over the next 4-8 years. It doesn't matter. They're all still leeches on our skin, and it's time to purge them along with congress and the senate.

I think some of it has to do with rebellion -- and sending a message to Washington that they are fed up with the status quo. If this message is clearly sent and gets across -- then the circus will have been worthwhile.

It's why many people who claim if he is not the nominee, and Sanders is, they will vote for Sanders. The two candidates are largely viewed as outsiders, and are interchangeable in this respect. (Although Trump supporters will vote for Sanders, I'm not sure this works both ways.) The message is clear, but will of course, be disregarded when one of the establishment candidates is elected, and everything returns to what it has always been. Which it will. The new President and Congress will heave a big sigh of relief, and pretend it all never happened.

What's up with the name in the title? Ah, because you disagree with him so you compare him to Hitler. How good.


Read Tarpley's article. This is not far fetched at all. I think many Trump supporters don't really think about the consequences of what he is saying. They don't know much about Hitler-style fascism, so they don't see the parallels. They are tired of the status quo and hungry for change but they have no realistic notion of what must change or how to do it. They are putty in the hands of any liar who is willing to lie what they want to hear.

One of the main planks of George W. Bush's first presidential campaign was "no foreign entanglements", no exercises in "nation building". At his first cabinet meeting, according to someone who attended that meeting and wrote a book about the Bush administration, the newly elected president's first request was "Find a reason to invade Iraq".

Obama came in promising "Hope and Change" and gave us more of the same.

I guarantee you Trump will be no different. He was famous as a liar even before he got into politics.

I'm praying for a brokered convention.

Oh, no I understand Hitler's fascism. But please tell me the similarities between the two beyond the cult of personality trait that they share which Trump also shares with Reagan. Please enlighten me and all the people you seem to consider idiots. Also where is this "Hitler's youth"? Please explain.

Yet another Trump-bashing/Trump-supporter-bashing thread

Have at then. Have fun.

Because right wingers love authoritarians that's why they love Putin and Trump


I find that to be an odd statement. Now, that is not to say that there isn't any truth to it. Rather, I find it odd how peoples' biases cloud their judgement.

I often hear people on the left say those right wingers love tyrants but it seems to me that the case can be made that it the modern American liberal that is pro-dictator. Under the guise of "the greater good" (which is fantastic marketing) the left these days seeks to dictate as many parts of people's individual lives as they can get away with from what parents can feed their children at school, to what type of health insurance they can have, to what type of shopping bags they can use at the supermarket, to what type of light bulbs people can use and the list goes on and on. At the same time the modern American liberal seeks to deny private (PRIVATE) employers the right to ask certain questions pertaining to criminal backgrounds of potential employees (at certain points of the interview/vetting process). They also tend to limit the rights of private (PRIVATE) businesses to deny NON-ESSENTIAL services to people based on religious objections (yes, that old wedding cake rears it's ugly head again).

Beyond the aforementioned and many other examples of liberal authoritarianism, the current President of the United States essentially bragged that if things didn't go his way... he wasn't worried because he has a pen and a phone. While it is true that he is not the first president to utilize executive actions/orders, the brazen in your face attitude he displayed (that was cheered by many a modern day liberal) is perhaps the perfect display of a wanna-be dictator.

To add some balance here, I will acknowledge that many on the right have a respect for Putin that sort of drifts into a (misguided) admiration. The respect part I can understand (in the sense that I have respect for the ocean whenever I go in the water because I understand it can be dangerous).

Edit to Add: My point is not that liberals/lefties are biased... my overall point is that I'm always amazed at how people, regardless of left or right, have a way of not seeing how hypocritical they are. (And I assure you, throughout my life I've learned and continue to learn that I am not guilt-free of viewing the world of my own biases which is one of the many things I try to improve about myself).

The exact moment for me was the day of the Arizona protest. I saw NYers getting pushed down and dealing with quai jackboots. I knew I WAS THE ONE who was fooled at that moment. I hated Trump at first.

I started to actually read for myself what he was about, and I found my candidate after years of not giving a F

After this election I will work to end the two party sham. My new lifes goal.

But Sanders is pure and awesome and shiny and wonderful and he hasn't been in Washington for too long!

And socialism.

I don't think that any of the four candidates will matter a tinkers damn, but just supporting Trump pisses people off and I find that amusing.

Just supporting any candidate pisses people of so your argument is weak
