CNN Compares Trump to…You Guessed It….Adolph Hitler

The degradation of Hitler’s crimes that comes with such flippant use of his name will surely erode history, leaving us vulnerable to the unlearned lessons of the past.

There are plenty of ways to be lazy, but not all of them are also offensive to those affected by The Holocaust.

Here’s the thing:  There will  always be someone out there willing to compare their political opponents to Adolph Hitler.  This insult, at one point, meant something.  Adolph Hitler is undoubtedly the most evil man to have ever made the news, and coopting his visage to score political points is not only cheap, but lazy.

This is the well-known, heavily-traversed bottom of the intellectual barrel, and, worse:  It’s terribly offensive.

Hitler’s antisemitic genocide left a scar on humanity that is still far from fully healed.  Very few of us living today can say that we are fully disconnected from the evil act, having at least a distant relative, teacher, rabbi, or community leader whose life was altered by that hate.

Constantly conjuring Adolph Hitler’s name for the sake of expressing your disapproval of a politician is classless and shallow.

So, that’s why CNN and their guests keep doing it, I suppose.

The following is taken from the clip above:

BOB BAER: He’s appealing to his base, This is dog-whistle politics and it is racism. You can’t describe it any other way. When he called immigrants animals it was the same as Adolf Hitler used to call foreigners animals — Jews and Gypsies It’s the same politics. It’s neo-Nazism. He may not advocate violence, but for a lot of people that listen to him, as Juliette said, its an incitement to violence.

The degradation of Hitler’s crimes that comes with such flippant use of his name will surely erode history, leaving us vulnerable to the unlearned lessons of the past.

CNN, and all other “news” networks, should tread very carefully around such historical negligence.

Biden Condemns Trump for Using the Word ‘Lynching,’ But Said the Same Thing In 1998

Ain’t that something?

Democrats can literally quote themselves from decades past and then argue they didn’t say what they said. Doesn’t even matter if their words are on record. If that sounds funny to you, it’s because it is. They are ridiculous. President Trump for example, if he wanted to, could pull a word-for-word sentence from Joe Biden’s past, blast Biden for using it, then Biden would claim he never said it. That’s how Democrats operate. It’s just lie after lie. On Tuesday, Trump used the word “lynching” to describe how he’s being treated by Congressional liberals. Naturally, the left blew a gasket. Biden, himself, wasn’t pleased with 45’s words. But Biden is pretty much a comedian at this point. From Daily Wire: Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden was quick to attack President Donald Trump on Tuesday after Trump referred to impeachment as a “lynching,” which is the same term that Biden used in 1998 to describe the impeachment of then-President Bill Clinton. “So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights,” Trump tweeted. “All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN!” So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights. All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1186611272231636992 Impeachment is not “lynching,” it is part of our Constitution. Our country has a dark, shameful history with lynching, and to even think about making this comparison is abhorrent. It’s despicable. https://twitter.com/JoeBiden/status/1186691273870233601?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1186691273870233601&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F1998-remarks-from-biden-surface-after-he-attacks-trumps-lynching-remarks WATCH: While Biden has called Trump’s lynching…
