Lest we forget…
My father served in World War Two and saw and lived the horrors of Hitler’s fascism. If he were alive to see Trump’s new American fascism, he would be part of the resistance.
The events occurring now on our border with Mexico are unthinkable. Children are separated from parents and both are put into prison camps and wire cages. And the new “Don,” the White House Fascist, has expanded dozens of wars of unprovoked aggression while saying the press is a villain and anyone who disagrees with Trump’s terror tactics is a traitor.
Those not reminded of Hitler’s rise, are not paying attention.
We have an ignorant fascist at the helm and too many are willing to allow it.
Trump and his ilk have tortured thousands of innocent children and their families. These victims are the tired, poor, huddled masses yearning to breathe free. These good people are invited guests: Lady Liberty is lifting her lamp. But the door slams shut.
Children separated have yet to be reunited.
In spite of much talked about traditions and freedoms, some petty racists, cowards, liars, criminals, traitors, thieves and murderers in the White House and in congress have forgotten about freedom and slammed shut the golden door. Their arrogance, racism and ignorance speaks volumes to the world.
Now everyday people at home and around the globe hang in the balance: this precarious and delicate chaos is infested with racism, misogyny and hate
Trump is a racist and a fascist. Adolf is his mentor.
“To miss the parallels in what our government is doing today, you would have to be blind. It’s there in the way that Donald Trump invokes the boogeyman of MS-13 to justify the imprisonment of children too young to tie their shoes. It’s there in the stories of detainees who have no idea where Homeland Security has taken their children, and have no way of finding out.

“Like many Ashkenazi Jews, my ancestors came from the far western reaches of Imperial Russia, the region known as the Pale of Settlement. It wasn’t by choice that they settled there: Catherine the Great banished the Jews to that slice of the empire’s frontier after merchants in Moscow complained that their Jewish competitors were stealing away business with their “well-known fraud and lies.” Things got worse in the 1880s with the enactment of the May Laws, which barred Jews from participating in the financial system and doing business on certain days, and capped the percentage of Jewish students allowed in schools.
If that sounds familiar, it’s because Adolf Hitler followed that same playbook in 1935, denying Jews citizenship, barring their access to certain professions and eventually herding them into ghettos. Bit by bit, he transformed us into the Other: corrupting, poisonous, a danger by our very existence.
To miss the parallels in what our government is doing today, you would have to be blind.”
Trump’s War on the Press Follows the Mussolini and Hitler Playbook
Never forget: Mussolini and Hitler made their first target the press. After a year of ‘alternative facts’ you can see why.
“Trump has spent two years vilifying the “dishonest” media (including The Daily Beast), even invoking the Nazi chant of “enemies of the people.” Aided by the alt right zealots at Breitbart, he has successfully persuaded millions of Americans that The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, and MSNBC are seditious forces bent on denigrating and destroying the man they elected.
It is dismaying that it was so easy for him to do this, dismaying that independent journalism of quality is so easily discredited and dismaying that none of this seems to trouble the Republican Party.
…Calling out the lies hasn’t stopped Trump. His motives may differ from those of Mussolini and Hitler. He’s not ideological. In his case autocratic instincts come as a psychological motor in the pursuit of greed and the protection of his unbridled and ludicrous ego. The lack of ideology doesn’t make him any less dangerous, though.”
Anne Frank Centre warns of ‘alarming parallels’ between Trump’s America and Hitler’s Germany
The human rights group compared Donald Trump’s Presidency to the ‘escalating steps of oppression’ that led to the Holocaust.
…”He told Newsweek: “1930s Germany imposed a series of escalating steps of oppression, including demonization, discrimination and isolation of vulnerable communities, that evoke what we are seeing today. That comparison is just, and not to make the comparison would be a dereliction of our duty to ensure ‘never again’ to any people.”
Mr Goldstein said he did not wish to “trivialise the Holocaust” by equating Trump to Hitler, who oversaw the murder millions of people.
But he added: “By the same token, it is responsible, and indeed our moral imperative, to point out parallels between actions taken by the Trump administration today and the actions taken by Germany in the 1930s before the Holocaust.”
