We are forgetting History

Post by j-c-c » Sun Oct 07, 2018 2:54 am

"Usually, comparisons between Donald Trump’s America and Nazi Germany come from cranks and internet trolls. But a new essay in the New York Review of Books pointing out “troubling similarities” between the 1930s and today is different: It’s written by Christopher Browning, one of America’s most eminent and well-respected historians of the Holocaust. In it, he warns that democracy here is under serious threat, in the way that German democracy was prior to Hitler’s rise — and really could topple altogether."

But I disagree where the comparisons "usually" come from. :mrgreen:

I expect most will discount the entire article, but the angle of Mitch McConnell as a main factor is new and interesting.

The big difference is Trump is for Liberty, and the others at least according to what we are told where not. True liberty is the key. The demonrats hate liberty, in any form of fashion. Demonrats want total government intervention in all aspects of our lives, just like any other Marxist government would. And they have proved they will do anything to gain control. So there is your party to fear.
Maybe someone that knows the real info on hitler could tell us? Wasn't it David that read his book? Since I don't listen to traditional teaching and brain washing I have no idea about topics like that. Since you seem to reference to hitler all the time. I always use the good old if it is some social political teaching that "everybody" repeats, then it maybe a lie until proven otherwise.

I almost clicked on it and then I saw it was in Vox #-o

I wonder if these Trump-hating liberals crying about America somehow losing its democracy ever had a problem with ohbummer wiretapping the Associated Press or his weaponization of government agencies to target his political opponents.

And no, it's not "whataboutism", it's about a fabricated narrative and blatant hypocrisy.

I was thinking more along the lines of CNN, NBC, The View, Rolling Stone, TIME, NYT, WaPo, HuffPo, VOX, yahoo, etc.

FOX actually reports news and allows two opposing views to discuss it rather than carrying the liberal talking points like a spit bucket so it's no wonder the left has set out to demonize FOX.

When FOX leaks debate questions to Trump, we can talk.

Not to change the subject, but I found out there's another good Conservative news outfit out there. It's called One America News Network! Good friend of mine watches it on Direct TV and they do have a website up HERE!

You're right, you are forgetting history.

The rise of Hitler and the rise of Obama were very similar. I'm happy we dodged that bullet.

Of course the Obama/left wing friendly media still exists but now more people have caught on to their propaganda machine.

This is for j-c-c and the rest of the demonRATs that see racism and every other "ism" behind every shadow. Isn't it odd how he tells us we're projecting...

That's why I didn't bother clicking on chromedome's post. WTF does his infatuation with Bush have to do with my post that he quoted? He clearly wasn't able to understand it. I really think he's suffered some kind of head trauma.

Your lack of thought is your problem. It relates to your meme in an ironic way that you can not grasp..But expected.
