Fake News. Another scare tactic from the Media since the Russia investigation is turning into another version of McCarthyism.

Itís good that you donít offer opinions cause it will reflect poorly on you as it already does for bringing Nazi into the conversation....

wrong forum. using cracked.com as a source is an interesting touch, however.

I read this article when it came out in October 2015. The excerpts from Trump's website were accurate and were there on his website. Read them yourself - it isn't like what's there goes against what Trump has been saying. The only claim I thought was dubious was the one about Mein Kampf. However, the 1990 article from Vanity Fair does a quote from Trump explicitly stating he had a copy. He also claimed "if I had it, I'd never read it." Uh... but you just said you did have it.

Anyway, while the site is satire, it isn't The Onion. Trump did say these things. And in some ways, what he is doing does parallel what Hitler did. Now, I did not live in 1930s Germany when Hitler rose to power, so I can only go by what history recorded. And no, I'm not saying Trump = Hitler. What I am saying is that the way Trump rallied Americans together is very similar to how Hitler rallied Germans together.

So, it is very easy to dismiss this as "Cracked is not a news source." I don't think people would disagree. But, Cracked is citing news sources. Trump did say these things. And they are connecting dots between what Trump has undoubtedly said to what Hitler said. And this article was written before Trump was even elected.

There are many stories that point out how Trumps action mirror the actions of Hitler in the 1930's. "Cracked" is but one.

The point here is the impossible one.......getting people (Trump fans are a hopeless lot) to discuss what Trump and the Republican party are really doing. Not wasting time picking at me or defending Trump. Nothing more........

Idiocy. The left are the facists.

1) Crazed Bernie supporter shooting Republican Congressmen
2) Crazed illegal attempts to assassinate Trump
3) Rigging of Democrat primaries
4) Black-clad thugs commiting violence in the streets
5) Attempts to rig polls, a exposed by wikileaks
6) DNC sends thugs to Trump rallies to incite violence and film result (admission caught on tape and operatives fired for it)
7) Collusion with DNCS and media to help Hillary win a debate (which she lost anyway)
8) Massive use of fake news to try to discredit a legitimate president

And on and on. Grow up. The Democrats are the bad guys, and increasingly, everyone is waking up to it. Donald Trump simply had the nerve to win an elections, and of course, fascists don't like it when you beat then by fair and legal means.

Trump did not"win" the election.

He was appointed by the right wing electoral college.

Like it or not Hillary "won" the popular vote which elects all other Gov't offices.

and yes, the rant was unhinged.........

You stated in the original post that you will not offer opinions but here you offer opinions which makes me suspect that all along you were there at the start to offer it.



Trump won the election. That is why he is the president.


The electoral college is neither right wing or left wing.


Hillary winning the popular vote has no meaning in a presidential election. Please attend a civics class that you obviously missed in school.


Wonder whose rant was unhinged.
