Trump said, 'I could shoot someone in the middle of times square and they would still vote for me.'

Like Trump said, 'I could shoot someone in the middle of times square and they would still vote for me....'


What many often forget, however, is that Hitler was not only a coldblooded tyrant but that he was also a brilliant persuader of men. He personally oversaw the deaths of millions of people, including the near extermination of the Jewish race while maintaining the full support of the German people.

The entire German population was certainly not as heartless and cruel as Hitler was, so it stands to reason that Hitler must have been a masterful propagandist in order to persuade the Germans that his policies were necessary and just.

At this point in his career, Hitler began to unleash his propaganda upon all of Germany. He had previously used his persuasiveness to further himself in the Nazi Party and to gain supporters, but it was not until he was dictator that that his persuasive style was fully manifested. Adolf Hitler’s persuasive method was built upon the foundation of treating the German people as a group, rather than as individuals.

He explained this technique in the following statement:

The receptivity of the great masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan. As soon as you sacrifice this slogan and try to be many-sided, the effect will piddle away, for the crowd can neither digest nor retain the material offered. (“Adolf Hitler: quote on propaganda”)


Trump plagiarizes Hitler.... not surprised that 40% of his supporters will stick with him....Hitler's supporters stuck with him....

In the words of Heinrich Himmler My honor is my loyalty.

1. And his remark has shown to be true. Regardless of how outrageous his words, they follow him.


Trump is following the paths of Hitler, Mussolini and countless other power hungry crazies.
