Glenn Beck: Donald Trump Is Like Hitler In 1929 Or Something

Glenn Beck has been on an anti-Trump kick virtually since Trump announced. Every single time I turn on his morning show, it seems the subject is Trump (if it’s not a commercial, a product placement at the end of a segment, or an old time revival speech). I rarely hear him talk about Hillary or others. He’s welcome to do whatever he wants on his show, but, it does get rather tedious listening to the doom and gloom. Beck decided to ramp up the moonbattery during an appearance on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos (via Breitbart, which has the video)

BECK: The GOP has one last chance to listen to the people. Um, and the people that — and I understand it. They’re very, very angry because the GOP did not listen the first time around. They didn’t listen to the Ron Paul people who are way ahead of the curve. Then the Tea Party people they rubbed our nose in it, and they are tired, and they have created Donald Trump. The people are speaking clearly. And there’s two ways to go. Anger and nationalism. Nationalism has been done before in history. You can go for nationalism. You can go for anger.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Trump is Adolf Hitler?

BECK: If you look what is happening with Donald Trump and his playing to the lowest common denominator and the anger in us. You know, Adolf Hitler — we all look at Adolf Hitler in 1940. We should look at him in 1929. He was the kind of funny, character that said the things that people were thinking. Where Donald Trump takes it, I have absolutely no idea. But, Donald Trump is a dangerous man with the things he’s been saying. Now, the GOP is playing unbelievable games right now. Trying to make sure they get their way. And they’re trying to go for a brokered convention. I’m against Donald Trump. But I’ll tell you one thing, if he gets close enough, and the GOP tries to play games, I won’t vote for Donald Trump ever, but I’ll stand with his right because the people have spoken. And what the GOP is doing, they’re stirring things up because they’re more afraid of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) than Donald Trump.

Beyond stupid.

    The comparison of Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler in 1929-1931 is an apt one, if we disregard what we know of der Führer beyond that. No one knew how Chancellor Hitler would turn out, and nobody would have believed it had they been told. As a politician, he was enormously successful, and Donald Trump is taking the same path.

    The problem, of course, is that we all know how Hitler turned out, and where he led Germany, so Hitler comparisons are always seen as radical and appeals to demagoguery. The comparisons could be perfectly apt, but they are so laden with all of the baggage of the Nazis that it becomes difficult for people to take them seriously.

    The comparison is appropriate. People at the time in Germany were desperate and they wanted someone who could take charge. For that matter, Hitler was great. If he had died in 1938, then he would have been one of the great world leaders. But I am beginning to research his war years and there is a good bit of inconsistency in what we are told and what happened. Time will tell.

    One other point, Sanders message is closer to Hitler than Trump.

    Well, maybe not, given that the Nuremberg Laws were promulgated in 1935. Of course, there seem to be a lot of Europeans today who wouldn’t object to those laws, and not a few on American college campuses who would think that they were wrong.

    At least in Germany they’d have thought him great: by the end of 1938 Germany had remilitarized the Rhineland, annexed Austria, seized the Sudetenland and repudiated the reparations payments from the Treaty of Versailles. What Hermann Göring or Rudolf Hess, as the next Führer would have done, well, who knows?
