Trump Rejects Hitler Comparison But Has A Few Alternatives

Political pundits are struggling to comprehend Donald Trump’s rapid ascent to the Republican presidential nomination.

On MSNBC and in the New York Times, he’s been likened to segregationist George Wallace. Louis CK and Glenn Beck have compared him to Adolf Hitler.

Donald Trump has rejected these comparisons. But he is here to help.

Trump has humbly offered a number of historical antecedents for people seeking to place his candidacy in context................


Trump sees himself as………….a Martin Luther King Jr. or possibly Thomas Jefferson…..and then this might be a fair comparison…… George Washington or Mahatma Gandhi…..
But then a times Trump sees himself as a Abraham Lincoln and/or Babe Ruth………

Try to tell me this clown does not have serious mental issues…………

THINK PROGRESS is a , a news aggregator...........a web site which collects and reports on news stories from - in this case - responsible and reliable news outlets...........If you bothered to check the story/report from the links provided you would not have appeared/sounded ignorant of that fact......and then not presumed the material to not being reliable...........

This "out of hand" dismissal of material RW ers without ever checking to see or challenge the accuracy /truth of the material is a "cowardly dodge" of material which does not meet their view of how threw world should be......... Something over the years I have come to refer to as being a "professional ignoramus"..........

Think Progress... A bastion of "conservative" views... LMMFAO

You must really be desperate to spread that LIBERAL propaganda, for you to post a week old opinion piece from a far left website, that actually has less credibility for being honest than Hillary Clinton does.

Think Progress is reputable all right... Right there, above the headlines of the story you linked to, there a picture of a black teen with the caption under it linking to a story that says "White Youths Yelling Racial Slurs Chase Black Teenager To His Death"

They published that story at 12:14 PM, Friday afternoon, but 32 minutes prior to that, NBC4 in NY City published their own story on the incident on their website, and ran an on-air story minutes later, that says something quite different.

Sure, they merely published a story from the NY Post, but by the time they did, police had already stated in a press conference that he died of natural causes (even his mother said so in the NBC4 interview) and that racism likely did not play a factor in the incident. They stated that this was gang related, where people from one "crew" (3 white guys and a hispanic guy) were chasing the kid and his friends who were affiliated with another crew.

Nowhere on the ThinkProgress website, will you find an update with the accurate details, a correction for the bogus story, or them linking to any one of the dozens of other stories from reputable news outlets that have been published since Friday, that reflect the correct information surrounding the incident.

How can you possibly trust an openly pro-liberal/anti-conservative website, that allows falsehoods like that to stand?

P.S. that is what is referred to as "substantiating your opinions" and "backing up your beliefs"... One day you should give it a try.

Curious how you had no problem at all mustering the courage to issue a "put up, or shut up" challenge in response to my criticism of your source... Yet that courage of yours is nowhere to be found when it comes to acknowledging that I did "put up" and did substantiated that ThinkProgress is not a credible website for news, but rather a political propaganda website that puts the liberal/progressive agenda ahead of the facts and the truth.

I think otherwise..............are you now going to say I am not entitled to my opinion............?



But let's say for the sake of argument you are right..........it is a flaming liberal slanted web site...........

Now you do not say it.......but infer it to be a site which provides spun, inaccurate and/or flat out lies..........

I f you believe that to be so.........

Taking this story/report/news point out all the lies and distortions in their article......... and explain why it is so.....

Point out all the propaganda and tell us why it is so.......

And demonstrate how liberal/progressives reduce "facts" to a secondary spot....... just to advance their agenda

And try and lose that pompous "smarter then thou" attitude............I find it most insulting

every candidate should say that, because I don't think a single presidential candidate of the last 30 years hasn't been compared to Hitler at least once. just say "Yeah I'm Hitler come on down to my bunker in Bavaria and we'll hang out"

And that misses the point. They may get the basics right, "The sky is blue". However they'll spin it, bias it up. "Thanks to the strong efforts of President Obama the sky is blue, despite the best efforts of Republican's to destroy even that in their greedy pursuit of profits at all cost!"

So yes, they gto the fact he sky is blue, right.

I wouldn't say he's Hitler. As far as world leaders go, he'd be more like a non-internationalist Napoleon Bonaparte, if elected (beyond that there really is no historical precedent for a world leader like Donald Trump, he's an enigma).

So what part of this article are you denying?

Louis CK, Peña Nieto, and Glenn Beck have all compared Trump to Hitler.

And Trump did compare himself to Gandhi with a misquote.
