New TV series: Hitler — a 6 part event, all new, 6 episodes

There have been 3 episodes so far in a new 6 part TV series about Hitler. The ads for the show claim that Hitler is  the most hated man in history. Why is Hitler the most hated man in history? Hitler killed Jews, that’s why.

The first episode in the TV series was entitled “Hitler, the opportunist”. Tom Weber spoke on the first episode, about which I have already written.

The second episode was entitled “The actor”. The third episode was entitled “The Führer “.  The 4th episode, which we will see next, is entitled “The Victor”.

In all these episodes, so far, we have seen Hitler standing before huge crowds, as he gives his speeches. The people are cheering, and throwing flowers at his feet as he walks through the crowds, without fear that he will be killed. Could Donald Trump, who is called the new Hitler, do that? I don’t think so!

The 4th episode, which we will see next, is entitled “The Victor”. I will do a new blog post after I have seen this episode.

Why are so many people comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler?

Filed under: Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 8:27 am

You can read a recent news article, which compares Trump to Hitler, at http://www.dnaindia.com/world/report-horrors-of-the-holocaust-2283664

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

The recent controversy in the USA over the selection of President-elect Donald Trump by Time Magazine as its ‘Person of the Year’ has seen critics drawing comparisons with a similar selection in the past featuring Nazi leader Adolf Hitler as the Man of the Year in 1938. Though one would not wish to get entangled in the current political debate, one recalls another controversial figure chosen by Time on the cover of its weekly in October 1943, Heinrich Himmler described by the cover as ‘the Police Chief of Nazi Europe’ with a chilling quote, ‘The dead do not speak’.

End quote

The Time magazine cover shows a photo of the person who has had the most impact on the news in the previous year. Sometimes, the person of the year is a woman. The most famous example of this was when a woman, who had had her nose cut off, was chosen as the person of the year.

The news article continues with this quote:

Begin quote

Heinrich Himmler was the chief architect of a sinister program designed by the Nazis (members of ‘Nationalsozialistishe Deutsche Arbeiterpartei’ ‘National Socialist German Worker’s Party’) to wipe out the entire Jewish population of Europe through planned detention of Jews in Nazi concentration camps where after initial torture and starvation, they were killed by ingeniously evil methods of mass extermination. The entire operation was later termed as ‘The Holocaust’ (Greek Holokauston referring to the sacrifice of an animal by fire) in the 1950s while the Jews used the Hebrew word, ‘Ha Shoah’ meaning ‘The Catastrophe’ to describe one of the world’s biggest and most systematic pogroms aimed at cleansing Europe of Jews and other minorities. The Holocaust which was termed as the ‘Final Solution (for the Jewish Problem)’ by the Nazis ended in the death of 60 lakh Jews including 11 lakh children. It sought to draw legitimacy from a popular but warped theory of population control called ‘Eugenics’ (Greek ~ Eu – well genos ~ born) which called for the promotion of breeding between people of ‘desired genetic traits’ (read ‘White Aryans’) with the limitation of breeding between people with ‘undesirable genetic traits’ (read Jews and other ethno-religious minorities) through sterilisation. Eugenics for the Nazis became the ‘social philosophy’ for creation of an ideal race of Aryans with the elimination of the ‘lesser races’ through mass murders approved by Hitler and executed by Himmler and his associates.

The Nazis began the prosecution [persecution] of Jews as soon as they assumed power in 1933 with a call for the boycott of Jewish businesses with posters in German pronouncing ‘Die Juden sind unser Unglück’ meaning ‘The Jews are our bad luck’; thus encouraging state-sponsored hate crimes against the community. The Nazis stepped up the persecution by bringing in the ‘Nuremberg Laws’ which barred Jews from holding public offices and mixing with other Germans. The Nuremberg Laws became a precedent for further anti-Jew legislation and anti-Semitic policies in the coming years. Unsurprisingly, violent activities against Jews began and culminated into what has been termed as the ‘Kristallnacht’ or ‘The Night of the broken glass’.

End quote

Is there any valid comparison between Trump and Hitler? I don’t think so. Hitler is famous for killing Jews. Trump loves Jews. His daughter has converted to the Jewish religion and she is married to a Jew. They will both be participating in Trump’s term as president.

Trump was born rich; Hitler was a self-made man, who was born poor.

Is Donald Trump a Nazi?

Why would anyone think that Donald Trump is a Nazi?

Why would anyone think that Donald Trump is a Nazi?

The following quote is from a news article, which you can read in full at http://www.newsweek.com/trump-has-unleashed-wave-anti-semitic-hatred-516656

Begin quote:

As a middle-class, white Ashkenazi Jew living in California in 2016, I’ve been privileged to avoid the systemic, cultural and interpersonal racism faced by many Muslims, immigrants and people of color across the U.S. today.

However, my uncle was not as fortunate. He was a Holocaust survivor who saw his entire family killed in front of him in a concentration camp. Although overt, violent anti-Semitism is largely absent from the United States and has not been part of my experience, I’ve begun to see a shift in the past six months.

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has forced me and thousands of other American Jews to face anti-Semitic threats for the first time. Throughout the election cycle, Jews have used a hashtag created by Bend the Arc Jewish Action, #WeveSeenThisBefore, as a reminder that Trump’s rhetoric and bigotry echo demagogues of the past.

End quote

Donald Trump has a daughter who is married to a Jew, and she has converted, so she is now a Jew.  So there will be Jews in the White House. The Donald is NOT a Nazi.

The name Trump is German, so his ancestors came to America from Germany. The town of Rothenburg in Germany has a tower that is named Trump Tower.

The Trump vs. Hillary debate

Debate.jpg

I am still trying to recover from watching last night’s debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, who are shown in the photo above.

You can read about it at http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/politics/ct-donald-trump-hillary-clinton-debate-20161009-story.html

I think that Hillary won the debate and that Donald Trump showed us again why he is not qualified to be the President of the United States.

Donald Trump thinks that Hillary belongs in prison. Read about it at http://www.politico.com/story/2016/10/trump-clinton-jail-ex-prosecutors-slam-229547

Hillary wore red, Trump wore a grey wig and a sour expression

Filed under: Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 9:38 am

At last night’s debate, Hillary looked like a 30-year-old very attractive woman; Trump looked angry as usual.

The morning after the debate, Trump went on the attack, as reported by the New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/28/us/politics/hillary-clinton-donald-trump-debate.html?_r=0

Hillary held her head up high and looked at the camera; Donald looked at her, the entire time, with a scowl on his face. During the debate, he spoke to her. She looked into the camera and spoke to the audience of 100 million people world wide. She conducted herself as if she were the Queen of a country. Trump sipped water throughout the debate, while Hillary only took one sip of water. Having “dry mouth” is a serious sign of ill health; Trump should see his doctor. [Dry mouth is a symptom of failing kidneys.]

Hillary’s best line was this: “A man who can be provoked by a tweet should not have his fingers anywhere near the nuclear codes.”

Hillary was at the top of her game; Trump interrupted her 51 times. She interrupted him 17 times.

The subject of the famous e-mails on Hillary’s private e-mail server came up; Trump said that he would release his tax returns as soon as Hillary reveals the 33,000 e-mails on her private server. So – never! Hillary’s e-mails are gone — wiped clean from her private server.

I used to have a private e-mail server; the advantage of having your own e-mail server is that you can see where the e-mails are coming from, not  where they are claiming to be coming from.  It is not a crime to have a private e-mail server, and you are not required, by law, to save 33,000 e-mails until the end of time.

Over 100 million people world wide watched the debate; 62% of the people in the world wide audience said that Hillary won the debate, while only 27% thought that Trump was the winner. Six percent of the viewers thought that the debate ended in a draw.

Trump claims that his “strongest asset” is his temperment. Hillary’s strongest assets are that she has had 30 years of government experience and she has traveled the world.

During the debate, Hillary brought up the subject of Trump not paying his architect, Andrew Tesoro, his fee of $100,000 dollars for a job that he did. Trump defended this by saying that Tesoro had not done a good job, and that is why he didn’t pay him.

Trump pointed out that he had made 68 million dollars in one year, and that he has been audited by the government every year for 10 years.

I was audited the first year that I went into business, and I passed. My accountant told me that I would never be audited again because I passed the audit the first time. Trump was apparently audited every year for 10 years because his tax returns were suspicious.

After the debate, Trump bragged about the fact that he had not mentioned Hillary’s husband. Hillary never mentioned Trump’s wife, nor his two previous wives who left him.  Trump said that he did not mention Hillary’s husband because their daughter Chelsea was in the audience.

The subject of Obama’s birth certificate came up; Trump said that Obama was born in America. Is Kenya in America? That’s where Obama was born.

Were the “Holocaust ovens” too small to have been used to kill 6 million Jews?

Trump Foreign Policy Adviser: The Holocaust Ovens Were ‘Too Small To Kill 6 Million Jews’

The “Holocaust ovens” are back in the news, as shown in the newspaper headline above.  Yes, yes, I know that the Jews were [allegedly] killed in gas chambers, not in gas  ovens.

The “Holocaust ovens” were used to burn the bodies after the Jews had allegedly been gassed.

What does this have to do with Donald Trump’s campaign? Absolutely nothing!

However, a news article claims that the Jews were killed in ovens. You can read the article in full at http://uproxx.com/news/trump-foreign-policy-adviser-holocaust-ovens-too-small/

In my photo above, notice how small the cremation oven is. The ovens at Auschwitz were deep enough to burn two bodies at a time, but that’s all. It would have taken a long time to kill 6 million Jews, two at a time, in the cremation ovens.

Is Donald Trump the new Hitler?

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Trump — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 9:05 am

According to a news article, which you can read in full here, the answer to the question in the title of my blog post today is “Yes, Donald Trump is the new Hitler.”

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote:

Likening any modern politician to Hitler is a dodgy errand. And while people have been making the comparison this year, it’s usually unfair and inapt. Hitler was ultimate evil. Trump is no mass murderer; Trump is no Nazi; Trump has launched no wars.

But to any serious student of Hitler’s frightening and unforeseen rise to power in Germany, the recurring echoes in Trump’s speeches, interviews and his underlying thinking have become too blatant to overlook.

No resemblance has been stronger than Trump’s claim that he “alone” could rescue America from its misery. Hitler famously conjured the model of “the genius, the great man” who alone held the key to a country’s destiny. Calling democracy “a joke,” Hitler fiercely disdained what he called “weak majorities.” Progress and civilization could be achieved only through “the genius and energy of a great personality,” wrote Hitler in “Mein Kampf,” his racist political manifesto. Among the great personalities he included Frederick the Great of Prussia, Napoleon Bonaparte, Otto von Bismarck and, by implication, himself.

End quote

2163985-adolf_hitler

Most people would think that it is a great insult to compare anyone to Hitler. But what was Hitler really like?

When construction started on the Sachsenhausen concentration camp in the summer of 1936, Nazi Germany was the envy of the Western world. From the depths of the Great Depression in 1932, Hitler had achieved an “economic miracle” in Germany in less than three years.

In 1936, there was, as yet, no sign of Nazi aggression, nor any attempt at world domination by Germany. Gertrude Stein, the famous Jewish writer, who was a mentor to Ernest Hemingway, even suggested in 1937 that Hitler should be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Because of the Nazi program of nationalism, the German people had regained their self respect after the humiliating Treaty of Versailles, which Germany was forced to sign at the end of World War I. They now had great pride in their ethnicity and their country. No people in the world were more patriotic than the Germans in 1936 and no other world leader had the total dedication to his country that Adolph Hitler had.

The ordinary Germans were satisfied with their lives and had no reason to fear the concentration camps, nor the Gestapo. Hitler was a hero to the 127 million ethnic Germans throughout Europe, whom he wanted to unite into the Greater German Empire, a dream that had been discussed in his native Austria for over 50 years. In less than four years, this dream would be accomplished when Austria, parts of Poland that had formerly been German territory, Luxembourg, the French provinces of Alsace and Lorraine, and the Sudetenland were combined with Germany to form the Greater German Reich.

In 1936, Hitler was more loved and admired than all the other world leaders put together. He was also the only world leader who was actively helping the Zionists with their plan to reclaim Palestine as their country.

While America and the rest of Europe were still in the depths of the depression caused by the stock market crash in October 1929, Germany had stabilized its economy and had virtually eliminated unemployment.

Unlike the other countries in Europe in 1936, Nazi Germany was doing very  well, thanks in part to American investment capital. Many American businessmen, led by auto maker Henry Ford, supported Hitler and his Fascist form of government. Other prominent Americans who supported Hitler included Joseph P. Kennedy (the father of President John F. Kennedy), and Prescott Bush (the grandfather of President George W. Bush) and Charles Lindbergh.

Meanwhile, the American government was drifting to the liberal left; Communist refugees like playwright Bertold Brecht and Jewish refugees like Albert Einstein were flocking to America and their influence was strong in American politics. In the 1936 presidential election in America, Al Smith, who had run as the Democratic candidate in 1928 against Herbert Hoover, accused fellow Democrat President Roosevelt of being a Communist.

Hitler had thumbed his nose at the Versailles Treaty by stopping the payment of reparations to France and Great Britain, and a massive program of industrialization had restored Germany to full employment, compared to the 20% unemployment in America in 1936. Roosevelt had copied many of the social welfare programs in Germany, including Social Security, but America was still struggling to recover from the depression.

The workers in Nazi Germany enjoyed unprecedented social benefits such as paid vacations under the Strength Through Joy program (Kraft durch Freude). Factory workers listened to classical music as they worked, and took showers before going home. In order to demonstrate their importance to the country, workers were allowed to march in Nazi parades, carrying shovels on their shoulders just like the soldiers who marched with their rifles.

Everything in Nazi Germany was clean and orderly; there were no slums; the trains ran on time. By 1938, the crime rate was at an all-time low because repeat offenders were being sent to a concentration camp after they had completed their second sentence. Anyone who did not have a permanent address and some visible means of support was hauled off to Dachau and put to work.

The political parties of the opposition (Communists and Social Democrats) had been banned in Germany; political dissidents were being locked up; there was no more bomb throwing or revolutionary fighting in the streets. There were no more crippling general strikes because the trade unions had been banned to prevent the Communists from organizing the workers.

A healthy lifestyle was encouraged by the Nazis and group calisthenics for young people were compulsory. Family values were the order of the day: abortion was banned; homosexuals and prostitutes were imprisoned; women were encouraged to be homemakers, and mothers with four or more children would shortly be awarded military style medals for serving their country.

In Germany, it was safe to walk the city streets at night; no bars were needed on the windows of German homes to keep the criminal element out; all the social misfits were being sent away to the concentration camps; bums and vagrants were no longer allowed to beg on the streets.

Money that had formerly been spent to care for institutionalized persons with mental and physical disabilities was now being used for other purposes as the mentally ill and the severely disabled were being put to death at Hartheim.

The Nazis were attempting to achieve a perfect world like Disneyland’s Main Street, which ends at a replica of Germany’s Neuschwanstein Castle. Germany’s advanced technology was the Tomorrowland of its day.

In America today, the backlash from the Nazi ideology of racialism and nationalism has become the impetus for the creation of today’s Politically Correct world of diversity and tolerance, which is the exact opposite of what it was like in Nazi Germany.

Unfortunately, the end result of Hitler’s policies was the Holocaust, for which he can never be forgiven.

Donald Trump’s son-in-law tells about his father’s grandmother who hid, from the Nazis, in a hole in the ground for 3 years

Filed under: Holocaust, Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 9:53 am
Donald Trump's Jewish son-in-law

Donald Trump’s Jewish son-in-law Jared Kushner

As we all know, the Nazis killed 6 million Jews during World War II, but there were a few survivors like the relative  of Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner. His father’s grandmother survived by living in a hole in the ground for 3 years.

I am sure that we will be hearing a lot more about the Jews who survived the Holocaust, now that we will have a Jew living in the White House, or visiting on a regular basis.

You can read this remarkable story at http://www.cnn.com/2016/07/06/politics/dana-schwartz-jared-kushner-trump-tweet-new-day/

The following quote is from the news story:

Donald Trump’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner wrote that Trump “is not an anti-Semite” in an op-ed published Wednesday afternoon in the New York Observer — the newspaper Kushner owns.
Kushner’s piece — titled “The Donald Trump I know” — comes after an arts and entertainment writer at the paper published an open letter to Kushner asking for him to publicly condemn the campaign’s use of “blatant anti-Semitic imagery.”
The article, titled “An Open Letter to Jared Kushner, From One of Your Jewish Employees,” was written by Dana Schwartz and posted on the Observer website Tuesday afternoon.
Kushner responded Wednesday, writing that “there are thoughtful points but journalists, even those who work for me at the Observer, are not always right.”
 Finally, we will have a Jew in the White House, and he will be Donald Trump’s advisor. I expect that Trump will spend most of his time in “Jew York” if he becomes President. When that happens, you will be wishing that “crooked Hillary” were in the White House.

Why some people are comparing Donald Trump to Hitler

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 8:20 am
Adolf Hitler gives a Nazi salute in 1927

Adolf Hitler gives a Nazi salute in the city of Nuremberg in 1927

What is the worst possible thing that you can say about a person? The worst possible insult is to compare someone to Hitler.

I am writing today about a news article entitled “Donald Trump, Adolf Hitler,  and what we talk about when we talk about Godwin’s Law”

Donald Trump

Trump raises his hand in what looks like a Nazi salute

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

There’s something about the Trump 2016 run that makes people cry Hitler at unprecedented levels, even for the Internet age.

In other words, Godwin’s Law is being invoked like never before. Don’t know what Godwin’s Law is? Coined by attorney Mike Godwin in 1990, it states, “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1.” In other words, Godwin’s Law means that as long as you exist as a person with an opinion not miraculously agreed upon by every single person in the world, the collective psychic cesspool that is the Internet will eventually call you Hitler.

Godwin’s Law is normally a pretty straightforward thing, in terms of whether it is being applied for (melo)dramatic effect or not. But as Trump’s campaign marches on and his base grows wider, their violence and nationalism grows louder — and Godwin’s Law loses a degree of rhetorical clarity. It’s meant for people wildly grasping at Hitler or the Nazis or the Holocaust as hyperbole, without actual factual relation. What happens when the similarities between the person being compared to Hitler and, well, Hitler are more eerily present than you’d expect?

End quote

Does Trump have any similarity to Hitler?  Does he want to kill Jews? As far as I know, Trump only wants to get rid of Mexicans who are in America illegally and he is against Muslims, who tend to be terrorists.

This quote is also from the news article:

Begin quote

It may be helpful here to note that some of the similarities between Trump and Hitler that people are quick to point out should bother and disturb us more than others. When Trump asked supporters at a rally to pledge their loyalty by raising their right hand, it was surreal — but it didn’t necessarily mean anything. It might have been an attempt to dog-whistle white supremacists in his base, but it might also have been an act of mind-boggling ignorance. (I actually feel the same way about the Megyn Kelly “blood coming out of here wherever” remarks — not that it in any way lessens the bread-and-butter misogyny of The Donald, but I believe there’s at least a possibility he was just babbling.)

End quote

The photo above shows Trump supporters raising their hands in what looks like a Nazi salute.

The following quote is from the last paragraph in the news article:

Begin quote

The ethics of the whole phenomenon are murky at best. Does Trump, whose personal #brand of racism will *probably* not lead him to exterminate millions in gas chambers, deserve to be indiscriminately called Hitler? No. But is it enormously important that people be educated about the disturbing ways the two leaders created their paths to power? Absolutely. There is a world of difference between contextualizing Trump’s racist policy proposals in terms of documented history and some egg-avatared MRA dude hissing rape threats at “feminazis” on Twitter.
