In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Senior House Democratic leader Clyburn compares Trump to Hitler

More Hitler comparisons.

Where are the Jews to scorn this kind of outrage? It’s not just an insult to President Trump, it’s an insult to those who died in the Holocaust and in World War II, because it diminishes what Hitler was.

House Minority Whip Jim Clyburn of South Carolina, one of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s top deputies, should lose his leadership position over this. Of course, he won’t.

He also complains that “the American people” may be less intelligent than he had thought.

Which is kind of what I’m thinking about him.

“I’m beginning to see what happened in Germany back in the 1930s, I never thought that would happen in this country,” Clyburn told CNN’s Chris Cuomo.

“How do you elect a person president and all of a sudden give him the authority to be a dictator. That’s what we’re dealing with around here.

“That’s what Hitler did in Germany. He was elected Chancellor and then because he successfully discredited the news media, took over the churches.

“I cannot see that happening here. It may happen, but if it did that means that the American people are much more — less, I should say, intelligent than I think they are.”

  1. Outrageous, irresponsible and cynical beyond belief. I doubt he actually thinks that but its useful to divide us.Biden’s platitudes about unity mean nothing in the face of this garbage.

  2. He’s not the first Dem to compare MrTrump to Hitler.
    If he is correctly quoted, his statement makes no sense. By implying that the President is going to take over “the churches” is kind of wacky thinking. Maybe King Henry VIII? The Muslim gangs?

    We, the little people in flyover country, have been called “Nazis” for years and no one ever stepped up to rescue our reputation. Deplorable, thugs, chumps, racists, and the all-time best – reptilian thinkers is what we had thrown at us.
