Trump goes full-blown Hitler, and it’s scary




By Mike Killalea, NSD president

We dislike giving the orange menace any publicity, there have been a plethora of scary story about fascist Trump, his threats, and his smug enablers. But spreading the word about our nazi-ish 45th is more akin to the Ride of Paul Revere.


Shamelessly, Trump is increasingly channeling Adolf Hitler. Despite MAGA denials, Trump’s rhetoric echoes Adolf’s.


‘Vermin’

Trump now compares his political opponents to “vermin,” just like Mussolini and Hitler. ‘We pledge to you that we will root out the communists, Marxists, fascists and the radical left thugs that live like vermin within the confines of our country,” Trump said. (1,2,3)


Further, Trump and Hitler agree that whomever they demonize will “poison the blood” of the their chosen people. Trump said immigrants coming to the US are President Biden’s campaign likened the words to those of Adolf Hitler. (5)


‘Poison the blood’

“They let — I think the real number is 15, 16 million people into our country. When they do that, we got a lot of work to do. They’re poisoning the blood of our country,” Trump told the crowd at a rally in New Hampshire. “That’s what they’ve done. They poison mental institutions and prisons all over the world, not just in South America, not just to three or four countries that we think about, but all over the world. They’re coming into our country from Africa, from Asia, all over the world.”


Trump then repeated the use of “poisoning” in a post on his social media website Truth Social, saying overnight in an all-caps post, that “illegal immigration is poisoning the blood of our nation. They’re coming from prisons, from mental institutions — from all over the world.” (5)


The term “blood poisoning” was used by Hitler in his manifesto “Mein Kampf,” in which he criticized immigration and the mixing of races. “All great cultures of the past perished only because the originally creative race died out from blood poisoning,” Hitler wrote. (5)


Hitler by the bedside

Trump has denied reading Mein Kampf. However, Trump’s late ex-wife Ivana alleged in a recently unearthed 1990 interview that The Donald kept a book of Hitler’s speeches in bis bedside cabinet. (4)


The 1990 feature, written by Marie Brenner, recounts: “Last April, perhaps in a surge of Czech nationalism, Ivana Trump told her lawyer Michael Kennedy that from time to time her husband reads a book of Hitler’s collected speeches, “My New Order,” which he keeps in a cabinet by his bed. (4)


One would imagine that responsible GOP politicians would condemn the nazi speech. Think again! Many of his spineless GOP allies have defended him or declined to comment on the remarks.


Rep Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) clownishly insisted former Trump wasn’t referring to “immigrants” when he said twice Saturday that “illegal immigration is poisoning the blood” of our country. (6)


What-aboutism

And Trump’s sychophants at Fox of course fall all overt themselves rescuing the Orange menace. Fox anchor John Roberts tried to compare Trump’s reference to his political enemies as “vermin” with rhetoric from Democrats, citing Hillary Clinton’s seven-year-old remark about some of Trump’s supporters belonging in a “basket of deplorables.” (7)


“Well, Hillary Clinton called her opponents deplorable at one point, so there’s language on both sides,” Roberts claimed.


At least two GOP senators, John Kennedy (La) and Todd Young (Ind), declined to comment when asked about the remarks by Politico, which noted no GOP senators called on Trump to walk back the comments. (6,8)


Rep Elise Stefanik (R-NY), who has sharply criticized college students who have espoused pro-Palestinian language widely viewed as antisemitic and denounced university leaders who have defended them, has not publicly commented on Trump’s remarks and instead met with him at Mar-a-Lago. (6)


Some Senate Republicans expressed tepid skepticism of Trump’s remarks. Sen Roger Wicker (R-Miss) told Politico he “certainly wouldn’t have said that,” while Sen Thom Tillis (R-NC) called the statements “unhelpful rhetoric.” Sen Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), told the outlet “obviously I don’t agree with that,” adding “we’re all children of immigrants.” (6)


Mealy-mouth much?
