Speaking in the early-voting state of New Hampshire, Trump, drew on words similar to Adolf Hitler's “Mein Kempf” as the former U.S. president berated Biden's team over what has been record numbers of migrants. “All over the world they’re pouring into our country,” Trump said.

The deflection, flailing defenses of Trump's rhetoric by the GOP, for example Lindsey Graham, have been cringe worthy.

Should be here too

' But Hitler and the Nazis were Socialists! It's right there in the name: National Socialism.' Trump is fighting the socialists'

Yeah, nothing like Nazi rhetoric from the former president while his allies are on the verge of causing a real national security calamity by surrendering in Ukraine.

Using Nazi language to normalize the vilification of people undocumented or otherwise is beyond the pale and a hallmark of fascism.

Trump really is the dregs of humanity.

Not really, the Dems screwed up the nation by allowing millions of un-vetted illegals into the country, most have very little skills or education, where will they go, live, eat, support themselves in a world that is going more automated, who are these people? Why are they mostly men? Why won’t the Democrats take them into their communities?

My Grandmother grew up under the Nazis, Hitler wanted to eradicate the Jews, that’s not what Trump is advocating, but the left will try everything, now watch this latest attempt blow up in their face.

And Trump fans are still all for him? 1930s-40s Europe wasn't enough of a lesson? Modern day use of Adolf's playbook is acceptable? Scary and disgusting.

My Grandmother grew up under the Nazis

Thats cute. My grandfather shot Nazis. This is exactly how they talked.

This “rhetoric” is nothing more than a continuation of his “very fine people on both sides” normalization of neo-Nazi sentiment in response to “Jews will not replace us” and the beloved Nazi chat “Blood and soil.”

This is the guy who hosted known Nazi lovers at his club.

This is the Fascist playbook of demonizing the “other” and pointing to hidden Jewish cabals (always run by Holocaust survivor George Soros.)

This is the continuation of the junk “Great Replacements” conspiracy (again run by Jews).

Not every Trump supporter is a nei-Nazi (some of them are just morons), but all neo-Nazis are Trump supporters and he not only fails to repudiate them, he embraces them.

It’s disgusting. It’s un-American. And any American who defends or excuses it is a bad American.

Hundreds of thousands of American troops were killed fighting the Nazis. In total, over 405,000 Americans gave their lives in the conflict.

Trump was constrained by what was then still standard pathways to reelection. Now he is promising only vengeance on America, and it isn't clear whether the law can constrain him.

The neoNational Socialists in the USA chant "America First" and pledge loyalty to the previous guys, while disparaging US systems and anyone that disagrees with him and his media.

@Dagon at 720 nailed it. Germany had its chance during the Weimar era to stop Hitler and fascism, but failed; the US showed in 2020 that a clear majority of voters wanted no more of the Republicans and its leader that want a nation ruled by the wealthiest who fit certain ethnic and relid=gious demographics. Not surprisingly the extreme right in the US use terms like 'globalist' which were used by the Nazis, while at the same time supporting global powers like Putin, MbS (in Saudi Arabia)and MbZ in the UAE, so those global leaders can continue to maintain their personal wealth and global power while controlling fossil fuels.

Does this website, and the writers of this piece, really expos to believe that Donald Trump was channeling Hitler? Nazism?

How about just telling us what he said and not tell us what you think he said? We just want information. We do need to be told who to vote for.

My Grandmother grew up under the Nazis,

So did my gran, but she fought back. And certainly wasn't echoing Hitler's rhetoric.

Hitler wanted to eradicate the Jews, that’s not what Trump is advocating, but the left will try everything, now watch this latest attempt blow up in their face.

Not just Jews. Ethnic minorities, communists, gays etc. Besides this is horribly a historic. They didn't come up with idea of executing people until well after the camps were created. Trump fans already want camps. We're essentially sleepwalking right into the same thing.

But don't worry, Trump will only be dictator for a day. So all good?

Math can help you. Remember the lessons on vectors, when two different or even opposing vectors result in a third one? That's simply what to apply here, after historically obviously walking on two very different paths and both were finally very much misleading.

@jeremiah: We do need to be told who to vote for.

The above a sad commentary indicative of the poorly educated that support the demagogue that had been in the White House (perhaps there to steal secret documents to sell to fellow anti-American dictators around the globe, among his many grifts).

Hitler's original base of power was made up of the poorly educated. x-45 has said he's targeting the poorly educated, many of whom have been left out of what's called the 'knowledge economy', because times change and they haven't; instead they want to turn the clock back and time travel to times (which they cannot date) when their skills were useful, and their demographic held even greater sway over the 'others'.

And? Your point?

This “rhetoric” is nothing more than a continuation of his “very fine people on both sides” normalization of neo-Nazi sentiment in response to “Jews will not replace us” and the beloved Nazi chat “Blood and soil.”

Ok, so putting the left hysteria once again on the shelf unless Trump is advocating for the death of migrants this is once again more manufactured drivel the left is trying to test the waters if maybe this will bring Trump down.

This is the guy who hosted known Nazi lovers at his club. 

Now how would you know this?

This is the Fascist playbook of demonizing the “other” and pointing to hidden Jewish cabals (always run by Holocaust survivor George Soros.)

A lot of People hate Soros not because he’s Jewish, but because of the radical left policies he supports

This is the continuation of the junk “Great Replacements” conspiracy (again run by Jews).

well, that conservative on college campuses that are attacking Jewish people we’re not supporting them.

Not every Trump supporter is a nei-Nazi (some of them are just morons),

if they vote for radical policies, then you can definitely say that, without a doubt, thankfully, the majority of them do not, more reason why so many of them left blue states.

but all neo-Nazis are Trump supporters and he not only fails to repudiate them, he embraces them. 

I am a Trump supporter and nowhere things were close to being anything of a Nazi, just because I want close orders that I want a reduction in illegal immigration, doesn’t make me or people that I know that Support finance Nazi, that argument is just not going to work.

It’s disgusting. It’s un-American.

Open borders is definitely an American.

And any American who defends or excuses it is a bad American.

Well, that’s your personal opinion, I’m an American police sovereignty and support legal immigration 100%, the way my grandparents change this magnificent country, and I will always support legal immigration, but I absolutely do not support legal immigration whatsoever.

Typical media spin. The ACTUAL problem- millions of people flooding the US illegally, is only briefly discussed. However, the REACTION of the GOP is discussed in excruciating detail.

How about reporting on why so many of the so-called 'refugees' are actually young, fit men. Who seem remarkably well dressed, well fed, well groomed and well equipped despite having supposedly made a long and harrowing journey of hundreds of miles on foot to get to the border. Or report on the busses and trains that ferry them to the border. I even heard one network referring to a human trafficker as a "guide" who was hired by Chinese migrants to help them cross into the States.

So let me get this straight. The policies are 'acceptable' but the rhetoric is outrageous... right.

It really illustrates how obsessed and desperate they are to send huge amounts of cash to Zelensky and the Military Industrial Complex that they are entertaining Trump border policies.

At this point, anyone who supports TFG or MAGA is giving new meaning to the term “retarded:” no longer referencing any intellectual or mental disability, and yet so far backward in their DECIDED convictions and mindset that they come full circle through their conspiratorial knots to the origin again. Now political propaganda is their reality. And then they make things worse now for the rest of us while existing in their minds in a better “then” which never really was. They’ve completely bought in and wear the rose-colored goggles full time.

I sometimes like to imagine what projects we’ll take on when we all take off those goggles long enough to think for ourselves, live in the moment and decide to connect to others once again.

I don’t want to MAGA. I want to reforge it and Make America United Again in a stronger, more inclusive, more equal way. I want to live in a USA that takes care of ourselves and offers to help each other when they ask for it.

My dad occasionally accuses me of “putting the cart before the horse.”

Getting rid of TFG is one step.

healing his voter base is another.

uniting behind a common goal is another step.

TFG and MAGA have no place in my country. Life is short and I’ve spent too much of mine learning about them and how they want to demean people. Maybe it’s time one of them stopped talking and took a breath long enough to learn about how I like to empower people.

We need to start talking about this to them respectfully. To real people at the gas pump and grocery store.

the time has past for ignoring politics and religion at holidays. I have too little time left on this earth to spend any of it wondering how my people elected a second hitler who DOESNT EVEN HAVE A COOL MUSTACHE
