The liberty principle for this Freedom Friday is the need to study and learn from history. I am particularly concerned about the many comparisons of U.S. leaders to Adolf Hitler. There were people on the right that compared Barack Obama to Hitler; now there are liberals on the left who are comparing Donald Trump to Hitler. Both groups show their dismal lack of historical knowledge.
Since the left has a “popular talking point” about Donald Trump having “things in common with Hitler,”
The Independent Journal Review decided to visit with a woman who lived in Nazi Germany about the comparison. Justen Charters spoke with Inga Andrews, who was born in Dusseldorf, Germany, during the time that Hitler led Germany. Instead of the normal activities of children, “Andrews was hiding in air raid shelters and helping to clean up the rubble from destroyed buildings to rebuild her city.” This is what Andrews had to say.
What is going on in this country is giving me chills. Trump is not like Hitler. Just because a leader wants order doesn’t mean they’re like a dictator.
What reminds me more of Hitler than anything else isn’t Trump, it’s the destruction of freedom of speech on the college campuses – the agendas fueled by the professors.
That’s how Hitler started, he pulled in the youth to miseducate them, to brainwash them, it’s happening today.
It saddens me that we are teaching garbage in the schools and in the college. We don’t teach history anymore. History repeats itself over and over.
You will have to go to Charters’ post here to read the rest of the conversation, but I will share Andrew’s parting counsel to America, particularly those who are protesting in the streets and destroying public and private property. “America needs to grow up. The young people who are rioting and destroying property, who have no respect for elders and freedom of speech, I was so proud to become a citizen of this country.”
Maybe the protesters and rioters need to see life in other countries to realize the blessings of living in America. They need to understand that millions of people realize that America is better than where they live. That is the reason why they are coming to America in hordes, legally or illegally. America is the Promised Land of our day, a land of blessings and opportunities. Everyone in the world seems to comprehend except liberals and progressives.
We endured eight years of living under the direction of Barack Obama who did everything in his power to destroy law and order. Those who were breaking the law had more protection under President Obama than the law abiding citizens and police officers. Now we have a President who is trying to restore law and order to our country, but the liberals are throwing temper tantrums because they are no longer getting what they want. I too hope that Americans grow up real soon!
