Trump's nothing like Hitler. There's no way he could write a book.

Trumpís nothing like Hitler. Thereís no way he could write a book.

Heís sort of like a pumpkin having a nervous breakdown.

Heís like a corrupt tele-evangelist that Columbo would have as a baddie or something.

1. He only rents out his name.

He will never write a book on purpose.

2. Have you ever read Mein Kampf?

I have.

It is so bizarre and disoriented that you cannot make any sense out of most of it.

It is for the most part a disgusting POS.

I think everyone should try to read it so they'll know how insane Hitler was.

If this is his prototype, we are in deep 'effin sh*t!

Insanity of this sort seems to be contagious!

5. I have.

Most English translations "improve" his writing style. (If you can call his screed any kind of style.)
In German, he's barely comprehensible.

7. Yes, it is barely readable

and it is for the most part beyond comprehension.

It should be REQUIRED reading in the schools, the writing of a madman.

Maybe then they'll actually learn a thing or two!

13. Mein Kampf is rambling and abstruse, but it is not incomprehensible

And it is definitely not written by an unintelligent person. Hitler clearly had been thinking about both practical and abstract political philosophy for awhile.

The OP is right. Even though he may emulate parts of Hitler's ideology and methods, Trump isn't even in the same league as Hitler in terms of intelligence or capability.

3. Before Hitler became the worst demon in history

He was just a buffoon whom nobody took seriously and his followers were a bunch of goons.

14. Perhaps, but unlikely.

Hitler certainly had setbacks in his quest for power even ending up in jail, but he was not a buffoon and the fact that "nobody took him and his followers seriously" was part of the problem. He was able to use the problems in Germany, including the structures of German politics to a rise that only took about 10 years from "buffoon" to war involving every major nation in the world.

We would like to think that it won't happen again, but here we are, with an ethically bankrupt narcissist as the President, supposedly sending thousands of military to the border to stop refugees from violence and death, courting fascists in Brazil and dictators all over the world.

We should not be looking at what Hitler became, we should be studying how he became what he did, in order to stop it from happening again.

10. It's disgusting, it's horrible...

And it's utterly necessary in this era.

We need black comedy, sarcasm, and more. Authoritarianism and nationalism deals with serious issues; it creates fear, paranoia, distrust of the 'other', and demands respect and obedience from it's subjects... this is a way of resistance to those two human-created monsters.

12. absolutely... humor has always been a coping mechinism

A long time ago when I was in college, I had an English prof tailor an entire English 101 semester around humor. It was an absolutely fascinating class.

also, this helps expand on the body of your post.

18. I Can't Believe My Sensitivities With this Issue Aren't Respected

 

I donít see any humor when I lost more relatives to Hitler than survived.
It might be time to find a site where my thoughts will be respected.

19. Please be patient with me on this issue, I'm here to learn and share also. I can see tons of

... pain from people who've lived in that time having lived in southwestern Germany myself during the 70s.

People were still hurting still the.

Maybe the site is not served by the comparison.

I was thinking the OP makes a point that Red Don is less capable than Hitler and needs those around him more seeing he can't even do the basics.
