It doesn’t say that.  It does not mention anything about illegals.

I wasn’t necessarily talking about the numbers.  That’s trivial.  All it takes is about 5% illegals to begin to put a strain on local resources.  And when it hits a majority of states, it begins to affect national resources.  And then that trickles down.

Ignorant racist!  I guess Trump is siphoning off funds for the Wall to build crematoriums for illegals?  No, the illegals are not scapegoats for all of America’s problems.  Those that are responsible are those that allow the illegals here in the first place.  The fact that illegals are here is still a problem though and Trump wants to deport them back to their own country, not exterminate them.  So please, enough of the Hitler/Trump comparisons!

I gave you more than one link.  They clearly show that there aren't very many illegals in Iowa compared to the rest of the population.  Illegals can't even get food stamps but that's a whole other argument.  Child hunger has little to nothing to do with illegal immigration.

And to be blunt, you have a history of clumping people into groups.  Everyone that disagrees with you is a socialist for example.  But if you are going to take a minority and blame them for really abstract crimes to society- like child hunger, I am going to continue to compare you to other groups that historically did the same thing.

 Trump's no Hitler. He's clearly Mussolini. We've been over this before, complete with baldness. 

Oh, I'm not saying he is Hitler.  I'm saying he is using the same odious plays from his playbook, however.

Definitely he does. 

 

I often insist Trump's appearance, especially facial expressions, resemble Mussolini's more than Hitler's, but I guess these are common to all narcissists. And the playbook is, unfortunately, the same.

It is always the same. We are trying to warn them about Trump but they are not listening. He promisses them something and they buy it. I can not really blame them. WE were promissed so much in Europe, Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, Milosevic.. and we believed them. They all had the same speach that Trump is using now. Maybe the best is to let them experience it how words can bring misery and destruction. We, unfortunately have the experience but...for the Trump supporters it is all fake news.

Meanwhile, in the real world economy adds more jobs than expected in August, and wage growth hits post-recession high Nonfarm payrolls grew by 201,000 in August. Economists surveyed by Reuters expected a 191,000 increase. Average hourly earnings jumped by 2.9 percent, above the 2.7 percent increase expected. The unemployment rate held near a generational low of 3.9 percent.

But, you know,.....hitler. :angry:

For many there are much more important things than money. We can survive being poor for a while, we may not survive a man actively working to destroy this nation.

Many voters give Trump credit for an improving economy, but they also say they'd prefer congressional candidates who will be a check on the president.

You gave two links that only discussed immigrants.  Can only assume it is legal immigrants because illegals are undocumented, but it would be safe to say at least 5% are illegals (as well as the legal 5%).  The exact number would be impossible to find out unless you perform a wall-to-wall census.

 

Illegals can't even get food stamps but that's a whole other argument. 

They’re getting something because they are still here.

 

Child hunger has little to nothing to do with illegal immigration.

I guess it went over your head.  Poverty plays a key role in hunger.  Illegal immigration imports poverty along with crime and disease.  Poverty acts like a disease.  It infects those around it.  Throwing money at the problem doesn’t fix it.

 

And to be blunt, you have a history of clumping people into groups. 

To be blunt, everybody does because everybody clumps into groups.

 

Everyone that disagrees with you is a socialist for example. 

I don’t call people Socialist because they disagree with me.  I call them Socialist for holding Socialist beliefs.

 

But if you are going to take a minority and blame them for really abstract crimes to society- like child hunger, I am going to continue to compare you to other groups that historically did the same thing.

Illegally crossing the border is not abstract and the violent crimes that follow from that act are hardly abstract.  Then historically, you’re an idiot.  Just because they are a minority does not mean they are innocent and blameless.  Wanting illegals and the problems they bring into this country to be gone is nowhere near what Hitler did.  And to think so is the ultimate of ignorance.

Freak’n unbelievable.  Obama was active in destroying this nation.  What do you think Fundamental Change meant?  Trump has been doing everything possible to rescue us from that.  Which attitude would you prefer?  “You didn’t build that!” or “Make America Great Again!”?  Trump is building this nation up.

Oh, we will survive Trump just fine.  It's the embarrassment and shame that I would like to avoid.

How so?  All the numbers that this administration touts were on the up and up over the past 6 years.  If you disagree, show me numbers to prove your argument.  The stock market?  Check.  Job creation?  Check.  GDP growth (although you will say it isn't enough.) Check.  Minority unemployment?  Check.  Answer this one question..WHAT UNDER TRUMP did not grow under Obama?

Unemployment rate Germany 1930 - 6 million. When Hitler came to power the economy already had started to recover. 1933 unemployment was already cut in half. Under Hitler by 1937 the number was cut to 400T.

Sooooooo, was Adolf the best(est) President ever??? 

So, yes, Trump rides the same wave that Hitler did. To much simmilarity not to be noticed. Trump came when Obama took USA out of recession.

In a nutshell... yes. 

They might put a slant on their stories, but they wouldn't make up something like this from scratch. If for no other reason that if they where found out, their newspaper empire would be finished. 

I think you aren't paying close enough attention to said "media".  They are completely sold out to do anything it takes to bring him down.  Anyone who cannot see this is in denial.

Since I am willing and able to read and understand context I will side with Obama's vision on this one.

Quote

bama, July 13: There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. (Applause.)

If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.

The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. There are some things, just like fighting fires, we don’t do on our own. I mean, imagine if everybody had their own fire service. That would be a hard way to organize fighting fires.

So we say to ourselves, ever since the founding of this country, you know what, there are some things we do better together. That’s how we funded the GI Bill. That’s how we created the middle class. That’s how we built the Golden Gate Bridge or the Hoover Dam. That’s how we invented the Internet. That’s how we sent a man to the moon. We rise or fall together as one nation and as one people, and that’s the reason I’m running for President — because I still believe in that idea. You’re not on your own, we’re in this together.

 

As opposed to Trump following the classic dictator playbook of ensuring his faithful we are under attack from the evil "others" and basing policy off of that manipulation.

To compare Trupmp to scumbag nazis is an insult to those poor souls that were victims to those terrible times. You have to be an idiot to make the comparison

I dont think anyone's comparing Trump the man to Hitler the man just yet, simply recognizing that his tactics and the overall environment are eerily similar.

The whole not forgetting history so we're not doomed to repeat it thing.
