    “For us there are only two possibilities: either we remain proud Americans or we come under the thumb of ISIS, the Chinese and Mexican criminals and rapists. This latter must not occur; even if we are small, we are a force. A well-organized group can conquer a strong enemy. If you stick close together and keep bringing in new people, we will be victorious over ISIS, the Chinese and Mexican rapists and criminals. 

    And if we ask who was responsible for our misfortune, then we must inquire who profited by our collapse. And the answer to that question is that ‘Banks and Stock Exchanges are more flourishing than ever before.’ We were told that capitalism would be destroyed, and when we ventured to remind one or other of these famous statesmen and said ‘Don’t forget that the Chinese too have capital,’ then the answer was: ‘What are you worrying about? Capitalism as a whole will now be destroyed, the whole people will now be free. We are not fighting  American or Christian capitalism, we are fighting very capitalism: we are making Americans completely free.’

    Christian capitalism’ is already as good as destroyed, the international Stock Exchange capital gains in proportion as the other loses ground. It is only the international Stock Exchange and loan-capital, the so-called ‘supra-state capital,’ which has profited from the collapse of American economic life, the capital which receives its character from the single supra-state nation which is itself national to the core, which fancies itself to be above all other nations, which places itself above other nations and which already rules over them.

    The international Stock Exchange capital would be unthinkable, it would never have come, without its founders the supra-national, because intensely national, Chinese, Syrians and Mexicans The Chinese have not grown poorer: they gradually gets bloated, and, if you don’t believe me, I would ask you to go to one of our health-resorts; there you will find two sorts of visitors: an American who goes there, perhaps for the first time for a long while, to breathe a little fresh air and to recover his health, and the Chinese who go there to lose fat” 

    Who delivered the above speech? Was it Donald Trump during one of his many campaign speeches delivered over the last several months since he’s become the Republican leader?

    No, the quotation above is an extract taken from speeches delivered by Adolf Hitler in 1921 and 1922 some 11 years before he took control of the German government.

    All I’ve done is replaced the words “Jews” and “”Germans” with “Chinese”, “ISIS”, “Syrians” and “Mexican criminals and rapists”.

    At the time most “rational” Germans didn’t take this fruitcake called Adolf Hitler seriously, but some did and the numbers grew. Germany had been hit by hard economic times after losing the first world war (WWI). Germany was required by the Treaty of Versailles and the 1921 London Schedule of Payments to pay 132 billion gold marks (US$33 billion) in reparations to cover civilian damage caused during WWI. That translates into about $768 billion in current dollars, a pretty good financial kick in the ass.

    When you end up with the shitty end of the economic stick it’s not unusual to look around for an “escape goat” right? ….and Hitler found the perfect escape goat, it was the Jews, gypsies, Slavs and folks with “other sexual orientation” in Germany’s case.

    We know how that story ends: After Hitler took power he put in place legislation limiting discriminatory policies against German Jews as well as other minority groups, then came the consecrations camps and finally mass extermination.  It took from 1921 until 1945 to bring this psychopath, Adolf Hitler’s reign of terror that cost millions of lives to an end.

    Do you really think that Donald Trump gives a damn about the American people? Look at Trump’s history:

    • He has avoided paying taxes to the tune of tens of millions while blaming Wall Street for financially raping the American public.
    • He has used “illegal aliens” or “undocumented workers” for many of his projects while calling Mexicans criminals and rapists.
    • He has his clothing line manufactured in India, Pakistan and China while pointing an accusing finger at the multi-nationals.
    • Trump’s businesses have filed for bankruptcy four times while he has left contractors holding the bag and his workers loosing millions in retirement savings.
    • He calls women “fat pigs” and insults anyone who stands in his way.
    • and the list goes on.

    From where I sit in the land of reason and sanity, north of the US border, I see Trump as a vain, narcissistic psychopath that doesn’t give a damn about the American people. He, like Adolf Hitler has managed to capitalize and tap into American frustration and anger. He has managed to convince millions of Americans that the fault lies with a “rigged system” the deck that is stacked against and Americans who have been cheated out of the “American Dream”. The Syrians, the Mexicans and Chinese are to blame and he is their salvation, he will fix it as he points the accusatory stubby finger and repeats over and over ” Believe me” “Believe me”, “Trust me” “Trust me”.

    Should Trump become the President of the United States next week millions of Americans are going to wake up asking; “What in hell did we do”? …..and by then it will be too late.

    Americans, think about it….. it’s your country and your future.
