Kennedy reduced the tax bracket rate for high-income earners from 91% to 70%.

German corporations did not support Hitler's heavy-handed regulations.
Yes, that's typically how left-wing socialists dehumanize and demoralize their subjects. The individual has no value on their own, they're only useful as a worker bee subsidizing the collective society, the goals of which are determined by the state.
I indeed do agree with those 97%

Well, if it was 91% for high-income earners, it was crazy high before the tax cuts.

That is not the point. Hitler wanted to gain the support of corporate Germany back then, and thus he had all those killed that wanted to implement the indeed socialist elements of the 25-point program from the early 1920s. From that point on (i.e. from very early on), it turned into a right-wing dictatorship.

That quote did not say that the individual has NO value, but that it is much less important than that of society as a whole. And I kind of agree, actually. The West is full of egoists bordering on sociopaths. I am in favor of a compromise somewhere in the middle. Between the US and China, to mention two unpleasant extremes.

No, the lie is that 97% of scientists agree.

Kennedy knew that and gave the rich a dramatic cut.

Implementing heavy-handed regulations did not engender corporate Germany's support. I'm not sure why you don't understand that. Hitler was never right-wing. Gun banning isn't right-wing. Dehumanizing, demoralizing, and subjugating the individual to achieve statist-mandated goals isn't right-wing.

It is not a lie. I actually think it is more than 97% these days.

What he ultimately got from corporations did not matter, it is about his views, his perspective, his goals etc. That defined what his dictatorship was about.

Banning guns is not an argument. You just don't like gun bans and you are conservative, so you arbitrarily turn gun bans into a criterion for a left-wing system.
Dehumanizing and subjugating individuals including genocide was also typical of colonialism and slavery, which was orchestrated by utterly conservative people and organizations, though.

Regardless of whether that's even true (I've seen that liberals call everything racist....even raising the flag back up tomorrow), Biden has been guilty of many racist things - including his remark that Obama was a clean black who didn't speak with that black dialect. Would you also say that Biden hates blacks as much as Hitler hated Jews, or would you see the insanity in that comment?

You have it backward. 97% agree there is no AGW.

Found the full quote: "I mean, you've got the first sort of mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a story-book man."

Biden is kind of a moron in my view, I would never vote for him as he comes across as dangerously stupid. But he is not a racist of the ugly, evil type like Trump. One difference is that at least he admits his unfortunate remarks and apologizes for them. So, no, I would definitely not apply my analogy to Biden.
