"Think about Hitler. Think about any of those people... if you could look back in history, would you say, 'Well, I'm so glad that person was allowed a platform so that they could spread their hate and propaganda and lies,' or would you say, 'That probably wasn't the right thing to do to spread that because you knew in that moment that was a bad person and they were doing bad things. And not only were they hurting people, they were killing people."

"I think that the example matters," Cuomo responded. "And that's a very extreme example."

"Listen, for people like me, how this the president feels about the Central Park Five, that could be a life or death issue for people like me," Lemon doubled down. "He took a big part of their life away... and demonizing immigrants and talking about 'sh**hole countries' and saying that 'there were very fine people on both sides.' For people of color in this country, it is a life or death issue... so I'm just saying we just need to be careful about having 'these are standard rules.' This is not standard. This is not normal."

"Comparing anything to an extreme like a Hitler- it weakens the argument," Cuomo pushed back, "because you are now taking a guy who says things you don't like and comparing him to a genocidal maniac."

"I'm not comparing him to that," Lemon attempted to clarify. "I'm comparing the way you would cover someone who is a bad person who does bad things."

Trump may not be to everyones liking but deporting illegal immigrants and trying to stop entry from certain terrorist hotspots does not make him Hitler and any such comparison just makes the left look stupid.

If the best argument you can come up with is to label someone a Nazi or Hitler, then you have a fairly weak argument in the first place.

The liberals are pulling this Hitler and concentration camp stuff in their desperate effort to paint Trump as racist. Their only hope of winning the election is to scare minorities into thinking Trump is out to get them.

Won't work.

Besides having a vaguely German background the two of them have nothing in common other than both of them being politicians.

What's new?

The communism and hitler etc. comparisons are an old political tool going back for years and are rolled out to scare\motivate a small number of really really stupid people in the party base.
