“Citizen Super PAC” Releases Video Rehabilitating Hitler and Goebbels

by Hadding Scott

WHY DO I SAY that this video rehabilitates Hitler and Goebbels? Because it is not going to hurt Trump. The people who already support Trump — which is now the majority of Republicans — will find this video to be an attack on themselves as much as an attack on Trump. If Trump behaves true to form, he will not do what most politicians do when attacked in this way: he will not plead for understanding that he is not Hitler.

Therefore, Hitler and Goebbels are more likely to gain positive regard by the comparison, than Trump is to be harmed by it. On some level, to some degree, many people already admire Hitler anyway.

Do Hitler and Trump really have anything in common? Yes, they do. A few things, but they are not bad things. Trump and Hitler are both nationalists who champion the interests of ordinary people against plutocracy, and they both speak extemporaneously, and have to deal with organized disruption of their rallies by leftist troublemakers. Trump also talks about reconciliation among Americans for the good of the country, which, most Americans surely have no idea, was also a major theme with Hitler.

Hitler is not, however, the premier example of such a populist, anti-plutocratic leader. They existed also in the ancient world. The brothers Tiberius and Gaius Gracchus are an example from the Roman Republic, and Solon is an example from ancient Greece.

One thing that is subtly misrepresented in the video, is when Hitler is shown referring to “the annihilation of the Jewish race in Europe.” The word rendered as “annihilation” is Vernichtung. It is tempting, for etymological reasons, to render Vernichtung as “annihilation,” but that is not how the word was generally used. The practical meaning of Vernichtung in pre-1945 German was really quite vague. It could mean defeat or ruin. Consequently this much quoted expression from Hitler’s January 1939 speech contributes absolutely nothing toward a proof of the so-called Holocaust.

You judge a man by whom he calls his friends and by those he shows admiration for – and with Trump it is the Jews. Benjamin Netanyahu is a great PM and Jews are so cool and successful that Trump has encouraged his children to fornicate with them. Somehow if Adolf had children I do not think he would have encouraged them to ‘have-it-off’ with kikes. I see Trump for what he is – a scoundrel and a Jewish collaborator. If he is a new Hitler why do the Jewish media in the US give him so much TV coverage and ‘ink’ in the press? Why do they even let him live. He is a tool – he is to show the lemmings that even a new Adolf can aspire… Read more »
