Donald vs. Adolf

The Republican party in America is split and sick. It is heralding an “outsider” in political life who dares to speak what many Americans think, but remain silent. It seems that silence is at an end. The great crusader, riding on his white horse, sword held high, has captured the souls of millions of American voters.

His speeches mesmerize his listeners. They are hypnotized by his promises to end the political mania in government circles. He promises drastic changes. Build a high wall to keep Mexican “rapists” out of the USA. Deport American-born children of illegal immigrants. End the market from China (he himself has a clothing and suit manufacturing company in China). Do not employ foreign or illegal workers (he himself hired illegal Polish workers to build his Trump Towers).

He refused to accept financial contributions from Jewish Republicans. He claims to be “Israel’s best friend,” yet when interviewed on his position re: Israel and the Palestinian conflict, his reply was “I am neutral.”

He received an endorsement from David Duke, the former Grand Wizard of the racist Ku Klux Klan, which, after many complaints, he disavowed.

He is regarded as a super con artist, having created companies that failed and went into bankruptcy.

Presently, he is being sued by former students who paid $35,000 to Trump University in order to learn the secrets of success in building wealth. The “university” was a fraud and was required by New York State to close down. It was a non-accredited school that took money from students and gave them nothing in return. A worthless paper diploma with a cardboard photo of himself.

Yet his suave appearance, his loud voice, his condemnation and terrible insults of his political rivals, have made him popular among a large section of the American Republican conservative voters.

I think back to the days of the Weimar Republic in Germany from 1918-1933. It was founded after Germany’s defeat in the First World War and consisted of several German Jews in high positions in the new government. So many of them, that the Weimar Republik was often referred to as the Judenrepublik.

Its first Cabinet was formed in 1918 and included two Jews, Hugo Hesse and Otto Landesberg. The Constitution of the new Republic was drafted by the Jew, Hugo Pruess.

Its first Minister for Economic Affairs and later Foreign Minister was the Jew, Walther Rathenau.

The Munich revolutionary government was headed by a Jew, Kurt Eisner. After his assassination, it was led by two other Jews, Gustav Landauer and Eugen Levine. And later, until her assassination, Rosa Luxemberg was the founder of the Spartakus Bund, predecessor of the German Communist Party.

In the Weimar Republic, many leading Jewish scholars in the fields of science, mathematics, philosophy and medicine were professors in great German universities. Among them were Albert Einstein, Erich Fromm, Karl Manneheim, Theodor Adorno, Herbert Marcuse, Max Horkheimer, Ernst Cassirer, Edmund Hussert, Arthur Rosenberg and Gustav Meyer.

In the Weimar Republic, 24% of Nobel Prize winners were German Jews, 9 Jews out of a total of 38.

Life was brilliant with a dynamic and vibrant culture in the arts, music and theater, dominated by Jews.

And then came 1933. An “outsider” in politics appeared on the scene. He promised changes in the government. He promised a new and greater Germany. His voice shouted out to the German nation whose citizens were mesmerized by this Austrian-born man who promised to deliver them out of the economic depression following Germany’s defeat. He promised to deliver them from the clutches of the Jews who had amassed great wealth at the expense of pure Aryan Germans.

Little Adolf won the hearts and minds of the majority of German citizens who voted for him overwhelmingly in Germany’s last free election.

A corporal in Kaiser Wilhelm’s army, he was subjected to an attack of mustard gas. After the war, he tried his hand at painting and selling postcards of his drawings on the street. Later, he formed a new political voice, the German National Socialist Party (Nazi).

Arrested after the Munich putsch, he spent some time in prison in Landsberg am Lech and there he began to write his immense volume of My Battles (Mein Kampf). It became a great seller and could be found in the salons of millions of German homes.

He promised prosperity for the working class, just as an American Republican candidate did. He declared “Juden raus” just as an American Republican candidate did (“Mexicans out”). And he destroyed the character of Germany just as an American Republican candidate will do to the character of America.

To American Jewish voters, I say “Caveat Emptor”…be careful of what you are “buying.” Save America very simply.
