I have no idea how much Trump wants to act on his crazy idea of building a wall, or relocating millions of illegal immigrants. I cannot look into the man's head, and he seems to change his positions and beliefs on an hourly basis anyhow.

What I am suggesting is that his rhetoric and scapegoating of minorities is very reminiscent of pre 1933 Fascists. Not more nor less. Make of that what you want.

If history is any guide then to suggest that once you let this genie of hate out of the bottle it can develop a dynamic of its own.

Funny, how a true sentiment and observation will be classified as trolling.

As to how pre 1933 Nazi propaganda looked like there are plenty of examples. They scapegoated Jews but did not advocate killing them

In this example you will find this gem:

"The Jew is uncreative. He produces nothing"

Sad how the maker versus the taker rhetoric is still alive and well on the right fringe. The targeted minorities change, but the demagoguery remains the same,

I am not talking about children born in the US but brought here when they were little.

And if you can't see the relevance of my point I really don't know how to make it more transparent. If you can't see this when paying close attention to how he works the crowd than I doubt anything I write will help.

BTW I used to like Trump when he was just a celebrity TV personality. He knows how to make an emotional connection. Too bad he figured out that in politics fear and loathing is the one he can most easily run with.

Well, I am German and I listened to Hitler recordings pre-1933. I also listen to the Trump speech that he gave after he came back from Mexico. I found it was chilling. Swap in "Jews" wherever he says "Illegals" and these speeches would be hard to distinguish.

Trump is not a normal candidate, it was funny when it started. It stopped being funny long ago.

Sweden wants to question him with regards to improper sexual conduct, this is common, on the record knowledge.

The nature of the charge has also been widely reported and confirmed by interviews with the women (who are not particular interested in seeing this blown out of proportion).

The dude had consensual sex, yet it was supposed to be protected sex, and he sneakily removed the condom. Sweden has very strict laws around consensual sexual conduct, so if he did indeed do this on purpose, and tricked the women, it amounts to an offense under Swedish law.

That he holes up in an embassy over this rather minor legal problem is laughable.
