Hey liberals: if you want to downplay the horrific crimes of Adolf Hitler – compare him to Donald Trump.
No, really. Claim you care about the oppressed while you compare a man who killed six million Jews and sparked a world war killing over 60 million to a man with a bad haircut who wants to enforce our nation’s border wall, reduce the size of government, and destroy ISIS. Does that sound like an apples to apples comparison to you? No, it’s an apples to oranges comparison on steroids (and I’m not just saying that because Trump looks kinda orange).
No person who actually survived the Holocaust or fought in WWII would make such an absurd comparison, and would rightly scold anyone who did. As the IJ Review reported:
But is this the case? Independent Journal Review decided to speak to a woman born in Nazi Germany about the comparison.
We talked with Inga Andrews, who was born in Dusseldorf, Germany, during Hitler’s reign. While most kids were playing with friends, Andrews was hiding in air raid shelters and helping to clean up the rubble from destroyed buildings to rebuild her city.
So did Andrews notice the non-existent parallels between Donald Trump and one of the worst mass murderers in history?
Nope. She stated that:
“What is going on in this country is giving me chills. Trump is not like Hitler. Just because a leader wants order doesn’t mean they’re like a dictator.
What reminds me more of Hitler than anything else isn’t Trump, it’s the destruction of freedom of speech on the college campuses — the agendas fueled by the professors.
That’s how Hitler started, he pulled in the youth to miseducate them, to brainwash them, it’s happening today.”
She then commented to the failures of our education system for even letting an absurd comparison be entertained. “It saddens me that we are teaching garbage in the schools and in the college. We don’t teach history anymore. History repeats itself over and over. The kids out there today haven’t ever lived through a war like I did. I remember sitting in a rock pile, cleaning rocks, to rebuild Germany. I remember eating maple leaves and grass to survive.”
While she was eating grass in Nazi Germany as a child, those comparing Trump to Hitler do so in the luxury of their safe spaces. If only they knew even a tenth as much as they thought they did.
Andrews went on.
“America needs to grow up. The young people who are rioting and destroying property, who have no respect for elders and freedom of speech, I was so proud to become a citizen of this country.”
“Professors shouldn’t be telling their students to go after freedom of speech. They should be telling them that this is the greatest country in the world.
The demonstrators can’t tell you why they’re demonstrating. I’m not a Republican. I’m not a Democrat. I just want the country to be at peace.
I see what is happening here reflecting some of the things we saw in Germany, and it’s terrifying. It’s sad. But it’s not because of Trump. It’s because of poor education.
Trump is not like Hitler. The theory that he is is propaganda. Yes, I lived through some of Nazi Germany, but all you have to do is read some books about that period to see how wrong that theory is.”
If Donald Trump is the next Hitler, it remains a mystery why most of Israelis preferred him over Hillary.
