The left seems to love comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler.

The left seems to love comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler.

In fact, the tactic has been so profound that a number of memes have been created in order to expose the absurdity of the claims.

Trending: Kaepernick Changes NFL Workout At Last Minute, League Says He Pulled A Fast One (Details)

Not only is this sort of pedantic and repetitious slander annoying, but it is also extremely boring and unoriginal.  Yes, Hitler was the worst of the worst – a despicable human being, (if you want to call him that), and the father of modern-day racism in more ways than one.  His actions were inexcusable and undeniably horrific, but saying that anyone, in any part of the world today is similar to Hitler is downright offensive.

Comparing any single issue we face today to the rise of Hitler in Europe is not only foolish, but completely belittles the events of World War II and, specifically, The Holocaust.

Yet, here we are, with French President Emmanuel Macron alluding to Trump as a Hitlerian figure right to his face.

Now, it seems as though Angela Merkel, of all people, is jumping on Macron’s bandwagon.

Angela Merkel called for the creation of a ‘real, true’ European army during a speech to EU ministers on Tuesday in a rebuke to President Trump.

The German Chancellor also called for a European Security Council that would be responsible for coordinating defence policy across the continent.

Merkel spoke out after French President Emmanuel Macron floated the same idea last week, and hours after Donald Trump lambasted him for it on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Trump joked that Parisians ‘were starting to learn German before the U.S. came along’ and liberated France during the Second World War – and told EU leaders to pay their fair share to NATO.

This sort of inference is so horrifically misguided and offensive that believing it to be anything more than an attention-mongering tactic would be foolish.

Merkel and Macron are both attempting to shame a powerful US President into capitulation to the EU standards – which, of course, derive themselves from the ideals of globalism.  This is precisely the opposite of what Americans want, at least according to the results of the 2016 election, in which the US turned heavy toward populism.

Bill Barr Goes On Record, Says Dems ‘Engaged In A War’ to Systemically Sabotage Trump Admin

Is he wrong? Or is he 100% correct?

If you think Attorney General Bill Barr is wrong or off-base or is just talking to hear his own voice, you’re not paying attention. Thankfully, you’re a conservative and you’re in the know. At a recent event, Barr proclaimed what all Republicans have been thinking from day one. The left is determined to bring down President Trump and every member of his administration by any means necessary. Barr, like Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and many others close to POTUS, aren’t afraid to say what they are thinking. Barr didn’t hold back. Here’s the scoop, via Daily Wire: Attorney General William Barr went off on the so called “resistance” during a Friday speech at the Federalist Society’s 2019 National Lawyers Convention in Washington, D.C., warning that the political Left is “engaged in a war” to “cripple” and “sabotage” the Trump administration from being able to function. Barr noted, “Immediately after President Trump won election, opponents inaugurated what they called ‘The Resistance,’ and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver available to sabotage the functioning of his Administration. Now, ‘resistance’ is the language used to describe insurgency against rule imposed by an occupying military power. It obviously connotes that the government is not legitimate. This is a very dangerous – indeed incendiary – notion to import into the politics of a democratic republic. What it means is that, instead of viewing themselves as the ‘loyal opposition,’ as opposing parties have done in the past, they essentially see themselves as engaged in a war to cripple, by any means necessary, a duly elected government.” WATCH: AG Bill Barr on the Democrats: “they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool & maneuver available to sabotage the functioning of [the Trump admin]… they essentially see themselves as…

Kaepernick Changes NFL Workout At Last Minute, League Says He Pulled A Fast One (Details)

This went exactly as Kaepernick planned…

Jay-Z reportedly helped Colin Kaepernick secure a workout for NFL teams as a way to make amends with his liberal fanbase after working on a project with Commissioner Roger Goodell. They thought he sold out. 24 of the NFL’s 32 teams were set to show up to the private workout in Atlanta. There wasn’t supposed to be any media in attendance. At the last minute, seemingly out of the blue, Colin and his camp decided to change the location so there would be media. You know, for transparency sake. Now, Colin is getting called out for turning the event in a sideshow. Here’s what’s up, via Washington Post: Representatives for quarterback Colin Kaepernick moved and rescheduled his workout for NFL teams Saturday after disagreements persisted with the league over the details of his audition. The session, as planned by the NFL, was originally scheduled for 3 p.m. at the Atlanta Falcons’ training complex in Flowery Branch, Ga. After continued haggling with the league over the conditions for the workout, Kaepernick’s representatives announced it would be moved to 4 p.m. at another Atlanta-area venue. They wanted the session open to the media, which the NFL refused, and objected to the version of a liability waiver that the league wanted Kaepernick to sign, Kaepernick’s representatives said.
