I remember when there was a lot of talk around here about making comparisons about Trump and Hitler. Oh yes, every time a ''liberal'' expressed that kind of concern over the similarities between the two, Trump supporters would chastise those who made those comparisons.

Now, Junior Trump is doing the same thing, comparing the DNC platform to the Nazi's of the 1930s. Hasn't he been reading ATS and how conservatives here have asked for a moratorium on this kind of vitriol?

Expect support for this comment. Just like how they adopted the term "fake news" after crying about its use, they'll probably adopt this as well.

No, it just looks like he has been following the left's lead. When you start treating people a certain way, don't be surprised if they do it back.

I'll wait a few hours and see if anybody "sees" the punchline.

I generally agree that going immediately to the nazi/Hitler card is ridiculous.

But a valid argument can be made that the leftists scream Hitler and nazi! At every little thing.

While if you look at the actual behavior of the leftists, the comparison being made by Trump Jr becomes more appropriate.

But at this point, the nazi/Hitler cries have been made so often that they no longer carry the same weight they once did.
Maybe that was the goal of the the leftists all along.

So, you blame the left here? For teaching Junior how to act and present himself? What has happened to the conservative mantra of ''self responsiblity''. Is not the president's son also held to these great standards. Personal responsiblity?

Support and deflection.

Look a couple posts up. Even his comments are the fault of the left.

Unreal

No, I don't. I blame the left for making Nazi comparisons fashionable. I wonder where you were when that was going on?

And yes, I can see that comparison. But accent those comparisons while at the same time denying the validity of comparison to conservatives is willful myopia.

And no, that was not the goal of leftists all along. You speak as if the leftists are united and all under one established agenda. The reason the ''leftists'' began to make those comparisons was very simple and straight forward. They could see from early on just how those comparisons to Trump are easy to see.

If you have done any research into the rise to power and the tactics of the Nazi Party, he's not wrong.

That said, most people frustrated with the use of "Nazi" do so because it lacks any meaning to most people who use it.

So, sincere question--have you researched and compared the platforms and tactics of the two parties cited, or are you just blabbering moratoriums and conservatives just for the S&G of it all?

The funny thing is, I heard a comment today that is appropriate for this thread: When a certain group paves the road, they shouldn't act so surprised when others start driving on it.

Donald Trump Jr was in fact speaking about his impression of DeSouza's movie.

Donald Trump Jr on this hypocrisy:


So the left spends the last 3 years falsely calling my entire family NAZI’s, but the second I point out the similarities between the economic platform of the National Socialists and the Democrat Party, they scream bloody murder. Here’s what I was referring to. #facts

he did say the 30's and not the 40's. It's not kill the jews nazis, its the Nazi's demands, which are. Ask the demands of the 1930's nazi's to liberals and say that it's 2018 DNC platform, how many would blink or argue???
.
Therefore we demand:

11. That all unearned income, and all income that does not arise from work, be abolished.

12. Since every war imposes on the people fearful sacrifices in blood and treasure, all personal profit arising from the war must be regarded as treason to the people. We therefore demand the total confiscation of all war profits.

13. We demand the nationalization of all trusts.

14. We demand profit-sharing in large industries.

15. We demand a generous increase in old-age pensions.

16. We demand the creation and maintenance of a sound middle-class, the immediate communalization of large stores which will be rented cheaply to small tradespeople, and the strongest consideration must be given to ensure that small traders shall deliver the supplies needed by the State, the provinces and municipalities.

17. We demand an agrarian reform in accordance with our national requirements, and the enactment of a law to expropriate the owners without compensation of any land needed for the common purpose. The abolition of ground rents, and the prohibition of all speculation in land.

18. We demand that ruthless war be waged against those who work to the injury of the common welfare. Traitors, usurers, profiteers, etc., are to be punished with death, regardless of creed or race.

19. We demand that Roman law, which serves a materialist ordering of the world, be replaced by German common law.

20. In order to make it possible for every capable and industrious German to obtain higher education, and thus the opportunity to reach into positions of leadership, the State must assume the responsibility of organizing thoroughly the entire cultural system of the people. The curricula of all educational establishments shall be adapted to practical life. The conception of the State Idea (science of citizenship) must be taught in the schools from the very beginning. We demand that specially talented children of poor parents, whatever their station or occupation, be educated at the expense of the State.

21. The State has the duty to help raise the standard of national health by providing maternity welfare centers, by prohibiting juvenile labor, by increasing physical fitness through the introduction of compulsory games and gymnastics, and by the greatest possible encouragement of associations concerned with the physical education of the young.

22. We demand the abolition of the regular army and the creation of a national (folk) army.

23. We demand that there be a legal campaign against those who propagate deliberate political lies and disseminate them through the press. In order to make possible the creation of a German press, we demand:

(a) All editors and their assistants on newspapers published in the German language shall be German citizens.

(b) Non-German newspapers shall only be published with the express permission of the State. They must not be published in the German language.

(c) All financial interests in or in any way affecting German newspapers shall be forbidden to non-Germans by law, and we demand that the punishment for transgressing this law be the immediate suppression of the newspaper and the expulsion of the non-Germans from the Reich.

Newspapers transgressing against the common welfare shall be suppressed. We demand legal action against those tendencies in art and literature that have a disruptive influence upon the life of our folk, and that any organizations that offend against the foregoing demands shall be dissolved.

24. We demand freedom for all religious faiths in the state, insofar as they do not endanger its existence or offend the moral and ethical sense of the Germanic race.

You say you don't blame them in the first sentence and then without blinking end up blaming them in the second sentence.

would that be all of "them"? and could you please clarify who "they" are, so we all know. I don't want to put you on the spot, but you have been a rather outspoken advocate for the dividing comments others make, and I would really hate for you to look like a giant tool in all of this.

Thank you for that list Soc. I won't read it right now as I am sure there are plenty of valid comparisons in it. The larger problem as I see it is that while liberals are not willing to entertain the notion that those comparisons are real, the blindness of conservatives to comparisons between Nazism and present day conservatism is at least equally disconcerting.

These are all social issues, right or left. The people of Germany back then were undergoing pressures just as we are here today. The rise of authoritarianism is at every gate and to put all of our defenses on one gate while abandoning the others because we believe them to be safe can be our downfall.

If we are to make comparisons to Nazi Germany we need to do it across the board.
