The idea of Donald Trump’s presidency being relatable to that of Hitler’s reign speaks on his shocking beliefs. When I first heard this claim, I thought it was a bit far-fetched, but after some research, I found some interesting comparisons between the potential future President of the United States and the man considered to be one of the most evil humans in history.
A YouTuber from the SoFlo channel went around asking Donald Trump supports if they agreed with certain quotes that allegedly came from Mr. Trump himself, when in reality, it was Adolf Hitler who spoke the words. (You can find the video at the end of this article.)
The response was shocking. Hitler once said, “Anyone who sees and paints a sky green and fields blue ought to be sterilised.”
Under the impression that these were the Republican candidate’s words, one Trump fan pointed out “there’s a lot of people who ought to be sterilised according to Donald Trump, so sure.” The comedian eventually told them that the quotes are in fact from the Austrian-born dictator. Even then, the supporters maintained that “if Donald Trump said them I’d support them.”
The rise of Donald Trump has sparked something evil among his followers – hate and fear. These are the same emotions Adolf Hitler stirred among his followers to rise to such a high level of dictatorship, and they are the same emotions that drove Germany to start World War II.
Now I’m not saying electing Trump into office will inevitably start World War III (which in some eyes is already happening in the Middle East) but his presidency will ignite a flame in America powered solely by the emotions Trump inspires so well.
Trump is pointing out refugees and Mexican Immigrants (minorities) and blatantly discriminating them. Let’s be thankful that Trump isn’t inspiring a full fledged extermination of these minorities, but let’s not forget that he is in the process of breeding more racism, hate, and fear into America than previously seen in the last twenty years.
Hitler used the same strategy to unite a unanimous following in Germany and to his credit, it worked. Trump will most likely win the presidential election and the future of America will be one that thrives on prejudice.
