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.

About the Author
The author is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (DES - Diethylstilbestrol), born in 1953 to two Dutch survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a vegan for 8 years now. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach and lehavdiel bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff and Rav Meir Lubin. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (statistics), Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, GLBTQAI, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Sometimes he's misunderstood because he has such a wide vision that never fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what many love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quit a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500st blog post with the ToI. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
