The Trump Administration has gone the way of the Nazis?

Trump already in his campaign and ever since has spoken against and stigmatized Mexicans and other non-Whites, harping about building a wall, very well knowing that that is physically and economically impossible, but he likes to perpetuate the racist innuendo. His latest about Mexicans is dealing with them as things – not people.

Trump tried a blanket immigration ban in certain countries, most of them Muslim. He said that that was because of security concerns but that was clearly a lame excuse as immigration authorities already were very tough preventing wrong people to enter.

He spoke with degradation about low-income countries who happened to be non-Caucasian.

He has been degrading his non-White predecessors as no US President has done before, and especially “Obama care” because that would help non-Whites.

Trump canceled the Dreamers’ safety. He claimed that a solution should be created but then nothing happened, endangering their stay. The lack of sustained indignation about that has opened the door to the next government chutzpa.

In the past six weeks, 2000 youngsters have been taken from their parents applying for immigration with the excuse to give them a bath. That’s haw the Nazis invited the Jews and other undesirables to the gas chamber. And the comparison doesn’t end here!

AG Jeff Session has had the audacity to defend this inhumane practice by quoting the Bible, the verse that was employed to try stop attacks on Hitler. Of course, religious leaders exposed the masquerade.

And worse, the “Angel of Death” in Auschwitz stood at the train station to point unworthy arrivals either to the labor site or the gas chambers. Women with small children he sent always directly to their death. But at least, he had the decency (!) not to separate them. He could have ordered the women to dump their children and slave-labored the mothers. he did not do so. But the Trump administration does.

This is trice at least as bad as Nazi Germany, as the three previous paragraphs show.

Religious leaders have been complaining. Trump with his now known good cop/bad cop routine, has declared this terrible. But that’s just to placate every opposition. He has done this with the dreamers, for instance. Totally insincere he questions his own policy.

Not his voters, who are at most mislead and petty racists, but President Trump, should we not start calling him a Nazi? Major racists we don’t treat with kid gloves.

One could say: but there is no attempt at genocide. True, but systematic racism can only lead to full-blown genocide, as we saw in pre-WW II eugenics in regular medical science. A people of immigrant that brought Native Americans to the brink of extinction should do better.
