Donald Trump is Not Adolf Hitler

 

Signs of Fascism Rising – Brewminate

 

People like comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler because that is the modern reference for human evil.  But it isn’t accurate.  Trump hates everyone equally, using them against each other for his own amusement. He’s closer to Nero, laughing while the nation burns to the ground.

might compare to the burning of the Reichstag by the Nazis as a publicity stunt.

Perhaps the cause of this fire isn’t the same, perhaps ravenous anarchists really are guilty this time, but the exploitation of the fear certainly is. It worked then and appears to be working now, regardless of how poor an actor Trump is compared to Hitler.

 

We should note that every revolutionary movement, ever, has deep comparisons to the actions of people and government now seeping daily into present days. Economic collapse and a plague riling the people; continued injustice mixing with need and boredom; a leader calling on the military to suppress the public (there is a long list of South American dictators who have claimed absolute control with the same tactic); the abandonment of legislative rules and laws; the radicalization of a terrified group of people–regular armchair warriors, afraid of the join or die nature of the revolution, then hypocritically picking a side (this does, in varying degrees, hit every idea of a revolution); and the standing on the sidelines cowards, indifferent to injustice, figuring if they just follow orders everything will be okay. This is where we are. Beware the cycles of history because we are at the collapse and eventual reformation of how people are going to live.

 

But the Hitler parallel is distracting.

Does This Trump Tweet Echo 'Mein Kampf'?

Yes, some of the same mannerisms are similar, desperately so on Donald Trump’s part, despite the fact that he shares none of Hitler’s passion or conviction for a blood-thirsty cause.  No, Donald Trump does not care–he does not care.  He is an old man screaming at his television, demanding something more entertaining to distract him from the empty failure of his life.

There is no form of righteousness to Donald Trump.  One never gets the impression he believes in what he’s doing, or not really.  Everything seems like a game to him, like a TV show where he has fired the director (repeatedly) and taken over with no idea what he’s doing.  He is only aware of how to get a reaction, whether positive or negative does not matter, just so long as everyone is talking about him.

 

Trump is known, really, for just a two things.  Remove all his business triumphs and failures like partisans on any side praise or attack (clearly I am guilty of this as well), forget his many wives and mistresses, and his public conduct and private hideousness, and let’s narrow it down:

And so no, Donald Trump is far from Adolph Hitler.  Hitler was raw evil, a demon with a plan to reorder the world into his perverted version of an Aryan paradise.  Hitler honestly believed he was saving the world.  Trump wants none of that.  Trump doesn’t want to hear about it.  Trump wants no complaints.

 

Those who supported and for some reason continue to support this temporary tyrant with scattered ideas and no capacity to accomplish any of them, control of federal government or not, those people wanted to hire a gruff businessman to run the country.  These are the cynics who saw the nation as a business, as a large scale profit-earning corporation.  And while elements of such activity have certainly always existed (and let us continue to ignore the naive young socialists howling about economic inequality–a genuinely valid concern–and their quixotic solutions gleaned from their own misunderstanding of a text book they partially read in college), a union is not a company.  And even if it were–even if nations were soulless, fascist operations,
