Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler: Making A Serious Comparison by Horace BloomHow dare you compare Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler! Havent you heard of Godwins Law?
Lets talk about this. Theres a cultural taboo against considering Nazi ideology in the context of present day politics. Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler by Horace Bloom confronts this taboo with responsibility, entering into a serious examination of the political histories of the Third Reich and our own time. Blooms work isnt a diatribe, but carefully pays attention to both the similarities and differences between Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler, and the contexts in which they have risen to power.
With the spread of political violence in the United States, and growing extremism in the 2016 presidential election, the comparison between Trump and Hitler has become unavoidable. However, a presidential candidate as breathtakingly original as Donald Trump deserves more than just a snigger here and a snide remark there. Horace Bloom delivers a powerful review of the relevance of the darkest days the 20th century to the essential decisions we are faced with in our own time.
Dont cast your vote in the 2016 presidential election without confronting the complex web of connections between Trump and Hitler.

In the process, each has participated in the demonizing of the very person they wrongly accuse of dehumanizing immigrants. Known for the brutality with which its members mutilate and dismember their victims, MS has an estimated 10, members in the U. CNN reports the gang is active in 46 states and the District of Columbia. Elliott has since deleted the tweet, but not before it was retweeted by Democratic presidential candidate Sen.
