There's certainly room for people to disagree with the political policies of the two sides - more government control versus less, more socialism versus more capitalism, government health care versus private, etc.
And I DO expect our ignorant, privileged young people, who have no notion of history, and no experience with anything except prosperity and easy living, to shout "He's literally HITLER!" because they have no idea who Hitler was other than a bad bogeyman to conjure with.
But I'm a bit surprised that an Englishman, who may have actually LIVED with the results of such a man being in control, maybe during the war and certainly the austerity and hard times afterward, would compare any modern elected leader with Hitler. I mean, have they actually SEEN the slave auctions on the White House lawn, or seen Jewish children being whipped to work in the mines and factories? I live here, and I haven't seen any of that.
So what am I missing? I'm not on a board here sharing it with soy-boys, transwymynals, and balsamic vinaigrette dilettantes; we all have grease under our fingernails, hard work behind us, responsible lives to live, teeth rattled around by big pistons going up and down, and we have ALL donned animal skins and straddled loud machines propelled by fire and gone down the road.
So why the invidious comparison? Not fussing, obviously, just want to understand?
