Any comparisons between Hitler and Trump's administration already means that the author has lost all credibility ...

Seriously... This ^^

I mean, Trump is definitely not a president I would vote for but the amount of ridiculous attacks/comparisons coming out now that he is president is just pathetic at this point. People needs to get over it and stop acting exactly the way they were accusing him to be at the first place.

It's pointless to compare Trump to Hitler as most people only associate Hitler with the end result. The rise of Hitler is mostly unknown, therefore as long as Trump is not gassing jews by the train load, comparison is invalid.



Like I expected, everyone here says that nobody should be compared to Hitler. A lot of people seem to think that Hitler was the devil himself, that he was the worst leader in history, that every single thing he did was bad...
But Hitler was just a president. Yes, he started a world war and he killed millions of people. But a lot of kings and presidents did things that were even worse. And a lot of people would have done things even way worse than these, but they luckily never got the power to do it.
There were enough things Hitler has done that were actually good for the people and the country.

So if someone compares Trump to Hitler, that doesn't mean he's saying Trump is pure evil, but it means that Trump's regime has some worrysome similarities with the regime of a dangerous dictator, and that we need to be careful so that he doesn't take things too far.

I do not think you realize how much the context is different from what happen in Germany after the first world war defeat (which was actually not really a defeat but anyway). Even without comparing Trump to Hitler, the context is totally different... Everybody can find similarities between any democracies or situation out there and any dictatorial regime if you really want to spend time on it...

Comparing the US current state and Germany's situation (and then Hitler regime) is just completly out of place imo.



Hitler and Trump grew up very differently also ...

Hitler was born in a poor family, Trump by comparison was born rich family. Hitler failed to get entrance into art school twice, Trump got a business degree in the top 100 universities specializing in that area. Hitler has served in public service before, Trump did not. Hitler experienced world depression with hyperinflation, lived in a war torn country, Trump never saw any of these things. Hitler was an immigrant to the sovereign nation under his authority, Trump was a natural citizen of america ...

So not only is it an insult to Trump for him to have his political career compared to Hitler but it's god damned stupid to even compare them on a personal background level ...

Hitler just wanted to make Germany great again.

You compare competely unrelevant subjects.

Hitler was a populist, so is Trump. That's a much better comparision. And both used it to gain votes.

The worst thing that can happen for these people is if Donald Trump unexpectedly does amazing. This is one of those things that only time is going to solve because people sure as heck won't change their opinions now.

See, I never got the populist angle.  You mean that he said stuff to get votes?  Like a politician?  Why do we call it populist for the people we dislike?

Trump is going to get re-elected and he is going to pull it off with ease. His motivation to be president won't settle for anything less.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
