David Duke: Trump Makes Hitler Great Again

Yep, we’ve gone there, Donald Trump the leading candidate for president of the United States in 2016 has just been compared to Hitler… as a compliment.

“David Duke, a prominent white supremacist, says Donald Trump is helping to rehabilitate Hitler’s image.”

Now it is not a surprise that a racist asshole like Duke would believe this, so who cares? Why publicize the rantings of a fringe right wing wacko and further legitimize his cause with additional airtime? Well the problem is a plurality of Republicans in this country (40+%) endorses Donald Trump so this is no longer a fringe issue. Adolf Hitler is the embodiment of evil in the 20th century and I’m not saying that Trump is evil, but for a leading presidential candidate to have even a passing resemblance much less a full-scale equating is a little concerning – fringe perspective or not.

Look you either believe Hitler is evil or not. If yes, then certainly nothing I say is going to change that. If not then you have to take a look at who he is being compared to and decide if that is legitimate.

I think the reason that this news gets me so riled up is that a post that I had kind of written as a lark some months back is coming closer and closer to fruition.
