Here's Why It's Entirely Appropriate to Compare Donald Trump to the Nazis
June 21, 2018, 2:38 AM GMT
The only discernible difference between what Donald Trump is doing to undocumented immigrants on our southern border and what the Nazis did all over Europe to Jews is that the Nazis had to go from house to house to round up their victims, while all Trump’s Border Patrol has to do is wait for their victims to walk or swim across the border.
That’s it. Practically everything else is the same. The actions Trump’s Border Enforcement agents are taking when they separate immigrant children at processing centers from their parents have nothing to do with law enforcement. Neither did the Nazis when they separated Jewish children from their parents inside the gates of Buchenwald and Auschwitz and Dachau. Trump’s agents on the border are carrying out a policy promulgated by his administration. Nazi SS stormtroopers were carrying out the policy of rounding up political opponents, “undesirables,” and Jews, and incarcerating them in concentration camps. These camps were entirely extra-legal. You didn’t have to be convicted of a crime to be incarcerated in a concentration camp. Nor have the immigrants and their children being held in hastily constructed cages been convicted of crimes.

These cartoons are by Rob Rogers, a long-time cartoonist for the Pittsburgh Gazette. He was recently fired by that paper for his anti-Trump cartoons.
The heading is mine and refers to the 2nd cartoon.

This is a comment on a post on Crooks & Liars. The link is here. It is one of the best descriptions of D. J. Trump I've reard.
tramp is a political neophyte that does not understand the separation of powers our Constitution maintains.
tramp is a lying hypocrite for not being patriotic enough to release his tax returns and prove to the American citizenry that he is working for us and not Putin. Remember this, tramp does not trust YOU enough to release his tax returns.
Who could have guessed that a reality TV star with no government experience, 6 bankruptcies, 5 kids from 3 different marriages, 19 charges of sexual assault, and 4000 plus lawsuits, could be so bad at being president?. tramp is one who is against lots of things but doesn't seem to be for anything, offers bombastic and contradictory promises, is a terrifying Orwellian statesman, insults veterans, threatens a free press, mocks the handicapped, denigrates women, immigrants and Muslims.
We might as well of handed the flight controls of a 747 over to pilot with only model air plane experience.

When I saw this photo I had to work hard not to throw up.
Then, I thought the person who was waving the sign was probably a confessing Christian and that led me to search for some Biblical wisdom which would justify such a comment.
Anyone with any knowledge of the New Testament knows immediately that there is nothing in that collection of tall tales and extended letters that would provide a basis for thanking the "Lord Jesus For President TRUMP."
But I did find a verse that describes in a perfectly poignant fashion what Jesus would have done if he had been at this rally. It's in the Gospel of John, chapter 11, verse 35:
