I looked into this in the 1990s. I became fascinated with Hitler’s rise to power, esp when I realized he was democratically elected by the German people. Back in the day, I had to travel to university libraries and scan through miles of microfiche. We now know Hitler as a monster. But during his rise, he was beloved, respected and adored. The people loved him for calling out the corruption and stagnancy of the establishment that bankrupted the nation. He made promises to revitalize the economy and look out for the German people.
And make no mistake, he delivered. Crime plummeted in Nazi Germany. So did unemployment. Social reform fed starving families, and school classrooms were filled with busy minds again. Hitler was Making Germany Great Again, but it was expensive, and the Fatherland did not have deep pockets. What Germany needed, Germany took. And since Hitler was the darling of Europe, no one complained, except the people who were being oppressed and robbed. #JewishLivesMatter. But no one listened. To the German people, it wasn’t genocide. It was immigration control. The Jewish immigrants were believed to be a substantial burden to the citizenry and had to be expelled. No one really cared how.
I am not saying that Trump is going to exterminate the Mexicans, take our guns, or start WW3. There are some very fundamental differences between a political genius and a brazen businessman. However, we should not ignore the similarities. The United States should not be realigned as an axis power. It would become the end of our Democratic Republic, and the end of our reign, if the world has to stop our government from Making America Great Again. It is expensive to do so, and we already owe Russia and China trillions of dollars. Are we going to just take what we want? Are we going to just grab the world by the pussy?
