Invoking the specter of Nazi Germany, Obama warns against complacency

 Obama Compares Trump to Hitler, Implies America Like 1930s Nazi Germany

That’s what happened in Germany in the 1930s, which despite the democracy of the Weimar Republic and centuries of high-level cultural and scientific achievements, Adolph Hitler rose to dominate, Obama noted. “Sixty million people died. . . .So, you’ve got to pay attention. And vote.”

American democracy is fragile, and unless care is taken it could follow the path of Nazi Germany in the 1930s.

Mixed in with many softer comments, that was the somewhat jaw-dropping bottom line of Barack Obama last night as, in a Q&A session before the Economic Club of Chicago, the Chicagoan who used to be president dropped a bit of red meat to a hometown crowd that likely is a lot closer to him than the man whose name never was mentioned: President Donald Trump.

Obama's comments came after a series of playful questions from moderator and Ariel Investments President Mellody Hobson—in the great Batman vs. Superman debate, for instance, we learned Obama sides with Batman—before she eventually asked him what he's learned as a world citizen of sorts.

  1. That communist, muslim, queer, has NO business making derogatory remarks about the current administration.

    He was one of,if not the worst, president in history.

  2. There is very little difference (of any real consequence) between the core beliefs of the Nazis (National SOCIALISTS) and the DNC. They both believe that the individual exists to serve "the state". That same State ought to be worshiped and viewed as the solution to all of life's problems. The State must have the final say in all areas of life. Both the Nazis and the DNC believe: it is ok to murder some people as they are not worthy to live, a one party government, gun confiscation of the general public, censorship of ideas they don't approve of, mass propaganda, government control of education, a hatred of Christianity, socialized medicine, "free" higher education, a love of the military-industrial complex and ongoing wars (as long as they can profit from it).
    Now, there are two areas where the comparison does not work. One is nationalism vs. internationalism. The Nazis loved uniforms and parades, the Dem's not so much. BTW, the Nazis WERE ok with homosexuals serving in the party as long as they were the right kind of homosexual. It was the effeminate ones that got the one way rail road ride.

    Antichrist Obama is something of a subject matter expert tough, as he is a evil as the Nazi's (and the Communists/Socialists of China, Russia, Cambodia to name a few) is overall world view and political beliefs are very similar. And like his spiritual father, Lucifer/Satan/The Devil, he is very good in the art of deceiving people with his smooth lies.
