    Trump is like Hitler? Really? I didn’t know he’s taking Americans and putting them through concentration camps and doing tests on them which eventually leads to killing them.

    Where is this happening? That isn’t right and why is it not getting national attention?

    Such a blatantly ridiculous statement. But you are obviously committed to your narrative and we're not going to convince each other of anything. Have a nice day.

    My narrative is the narrative of history.

    Exactly. Anyone who believes that is insane and will say anything to boost their narrative.

    One doesn’t need to be Hitler to be an authoritarian. Just ask the Duma or the Grand Assembly. all authoritarians follow the same playbook. You ignoring this fact is a lazy attempt to dismiss his point.

    * Trump has found an “outsider” to target.
    * He’s usurping power by placing loyal followers in positions of power. Especially in the institutions designed to limit executive power and guard against corruption.
    * He’s delegitimizing political adversaries and attacking the free press.
    * He’s destroying the democratic process.

    If you really can’t see these similarities to Hitler, Putin, and Erdogan, then I don’t know what to tell ya. Stop posting here and start reading a history book.

    I agree with you that Trump is not like Hitler, and there are significant differences in how they came to power and the means used to enforce that power. There's been no equivalent of the Reichstag Fire Decree, no arrests of political opponents, no Enabling Act, no Gleichschaltung, etc.

    However, there are similarities. The Proud Boys are not that different from the brown shirts, and there are concentration camps. If these things don't worry you, it's like you are ignoring history.

    Notice they always encourage you to stop posting on here. They did that to me to. Liberals are very tolerant of others opinions just as long as you agree with them. Another funny thing happened I corrected vert to very 3 times now, but it reverts back to vert tolerant...lets see if it stays corrected with this edit.

    I haven't heard of that one before. Is that a new "key word" that CNN is throwing around? The fact that the left controls the majority of music, entertainment, schools ect.. and we are not a democracy let alone a liberal one. Shows how unpopular the lefts viewpoints are to Americans.

    Maybe the president should be held to a higher standard? Like the highest standard?

    Lmao, you haven't heard of the term "liberal democracy?" You might be a bit out of your depth here bud.

    Bonus points for "we're not a democracy" though, forever the calling card of imbeciles.

    To a large degree we aren’t a democracy. Our government is a nice mix where democracy plays its part.

    We're not a "direct democracy" but from a local level on up to the highest levels of government we vote for our representation. Describing the united states as not a democracy is simple pedantry imo, particularly within the context of the term liberal democracy.
