Why is Trump compared to Hitler? It’s taken me a while to figure this out so forgive me for my slowness.
Remember when Trump announced his candidacy? Oh, the guffaws. Then he started climbing in the polls. He listened to all Americans and then spoke to their real concerns. Not climate change. Not globalism. He spoke to them about their wounds. And he said, what have you got to lose voting for me?
Well, Hillary, once the DNC fixed the election, was the Democrat Presidential candidate, and didn’t think much of running against Trump. She knew him. I believe he had donated to her election campaigns. She just assumed that she would win; break that glass ceiling. After all she had been the Secretary of State in the Obama administration and Obama was doing everything he could to get her elected.
But as some point she realized that something was wrong. She had figured she was a shoe-in. But Trump was getting large, excited crowds to his rallies. She wasn’t. And she wasn’t doing all that much rallying. So she decided to explain that the people who would vote for Trump were deplorable. Not just deplorable, but Baskets of Deplorables. And who would want to be thought of as a deplorable? I understood that.
Many years ago I was talking with some very good friends about politics and the media.
Intelligent people. And the topic pf Fox TV came up. Well, only rednecks watch Fox! I am no redneck so of course I didn’t watch Fox. Until I did.
Just as I did not think of myself as a redneck, I guess Hillary figured smart Americans would not want to be Deplorables and would vote for her. They didn’t.
Now we come to Hitler. What kind of people would vote for him? Deplorable people, of course.
And there you have it. If deplorable people voted for Hitler and deplorable people voted for Trump, Trump must be Hitler. Get your head around that syllogism.
And once you are attached to Hitler…
Then the media, having compared him to Hitler, and dictators, because of course he behaved that way, and like a Monarch too, decided that he was destroying the world because he was a dangerous isolationist/populist, like Hitler. How did they decide that? He was attacking NATO and the UN, the globalists’ favourite organizations. Was he walking away? No. He was demanding they stop being freeloaders and pay their bills. And they did.
Personally, I’d like Trump to turn the UN into a home for vets. Right now the UN is run by dictators from China and Russia and 50 Muslim countries. But I digress.
When Trump took out Baghdadi the left did not swoon with joy. Vanity Fair, that bastion of political punditry, was more concerned about Trump’s description of Baghdadi whimpering like a dog than the fact that the man was dead.
And when Trump took out General Qassem Soleimani, the most vicious terrorist in the Middle East, if not the world, they screamed “Trump is leading us into WWIII!” Because of course, Iran is just a puddy cat. Soleimani, 62, is considered the architect behind Iran’s elite Quds Force—an elite unit within Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) that is tasked with Iran’s extra-territorial military operations—including activities to expand Iranian influence in Syria and rocket attacks on Israel.
The United States in April 2019 designated Iran’s IRGC as a foreign terrorist organization (FTO). It marked the first time that the United States designated part of a foreign government as a terror group. The State Department announced at the time that the FTO designation “highlights that Iran is an outlaw regime that uses terrorism as a key tool of statecraft and that the IRGC, part of Iran’s official military, has engaged in terrorist activity or terrorism since its inception 40 years ago.” It’s not like Iran hasn’t been threatening WWIII.
The attacks on Trump followed the killing of Soleimani, like night follows day. Because Trump is Hitler.
I was flipping through Twitter reading the comments made by people on the left. Who are these people? Who is this Rose McGowan?
Who is this ditz? What makes her think she has anything worthy to share about world events? And who are these people who follow her?
She apologized to the Iranian people for Trump taking out Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Qods Force, led by Qasem Soleimani.
“Dear #Iran, The USA has disrespected your country, your flag, your people. 52% of us humbly apologize,” McGowan wrote on Twitter early Friday morning. “We want peace with your nation. We are being held hostage by a terrorist regime. We do not know how to escape. Please do not kill us. #Soleimani.”
What? Does she know anything at all about honour/shame cultures? How about the animosity between the Shia and Sunni? Their desires to establish another Caliphate? And not together. She is asking Iran to remove Trump, calling him a terrorist! Yet, it was Obama who gave 1.7 billion dollars, in small bills to Iran as a bribe: a quid pro quo, to sign the Iran treaty that was all smoke and mirrors. Why is she not upset about the thousands of people murdered because of the terror that money bought?
The Iraqis are dancing in the streets because the Iranian murderer is dead.

Iranians outside Iran are thrilled. Nooshin Mashkaty, a NASA engineer who was born in Iran but moved to Los Angeles as a child for school, agreed.
“Having a terrorist pay his due is a very happy moment,” she said. “Soleimani is the brain behind all of the terrorist attack, internal and external, so you could imagine how everyone was happy. He not only has killed many Americans, he’s killed many Iranians and many other people around the world.”
Iranian journalist and activist Masih Alinejad said that the people of Iran did not mourn the death of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani. We won’t see photos because Iran’s leadership is controlling social media.
Too bad McGowan hasn’t met my friend human rights activist, Shabnam Assadollahi, who spent almost two years in Evin prison, a delightful place especially for women. My friend is dancing in the street as are most Iranians not held hostage in Iran.
Shabnam lived in Iran before people like Soleimani took over.
