Hitler-ism on the Rise….or…..Never Forget…..

Hitler is alive and well and living in the U.S.A.

Oh, not his physical self, of course, but the worst of his ideas.

If you’ve been paying any attention to the news, at all, in the last few days, you’ve probably heard ‘the Donald’ braying about ID’s for all Muslims, closing mosques, special tags for Muslims to wear, registering refugees, camps for Muslim refugees……and more.

Does any of this sound familiar to anyone else?

Does anyone else see history trying to repeat itself?

If you don’t, you should.  These were all ideas that came from the distorted mind of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler way back in 1938.  Most of his warped ideas showed up when he wrote “Mein Kampf” (My Struggle)  while he was in prison for treason.  The rest morphed out of his rabid hatred and fear of anything or anyone different from himself.  Or who disagreed with him.  Jews, gypsies, the disabled, scientists, Christians, educators, they all went to the concentration camps.

And now, we have Trump resurrecting these hideous ideas.

We said never again.  Never again would we let these atrocities happen.

It CANNOT happen again.  This attitude cannot be allowed to fester and grow in our country.

We need to remember what Sinclair Lewis said in the 1930s:  when fascism comes to America, that it will be wrapped in the flag, sing the national anthem, carry a cross and be called, “Americanism”.

I believe that we are here for a reason. We just don't know what it is. I believe there are no borders or color differentiations. We're all the same under the skin and we all want the same basic things. I hate injustice and tend to take a stand against what I feel is unfair and just plain wrong. So, read on and comment if you'd like. Happy New Year!

  1. Well-said. Trump stopped being a joke a while ago. It’s getting to be scary.
