6 Ways Donald Trump is Nothing Like Adolf Hitler

Recommended Posts

LOL..You have got to love the Germans! After all, they are Trumps people even if he does choose to keep his German ancestry quiet.


Many liberal commentators have been wringing their hands about US Presidential hopeful Donald Trump's alleged similarity to Hitler. We give you six reasons why you can sleep easy at night.

Yes, Trump recently said he pined for the good old days when hecklers would be taken out of a political meet on a stretcher. Yes, he's said he'd like all Muslims in the USA to be registered - and yes, he said he'd bring back waterboarding "and a hell of a lot worse."

But no one has considered the other side of the argument. Here's six reasons they're nothing like each other.

1) Sex drives miles apart

If there's one thing the world is definitely sure that Donald Trump likes, it's beautiful women.

The property magnate has three marriages under his belt and often lets his libido bubble over into very public assessments of attractive ladies - he's even suggested he'd date his own daughter.

"I was always of the opinion that aggression, sex drive, and everything that goes along with it was on the man's part of the table," he wrote in his 1997 book The Art of the Comeback.

2) Pride in being German

Despite actually coming from Austria, Hitler was obsessed with the superiority of the German people and could barely finish a sentence without blurting out a reference to the Fatherland.

In one of the most well known ironies of history the squat, dark-haired dictator proclaimed that only tall blond, blue-eyed people were true “Aryans.”

Donald Trump on the other hand is a tall, blond and has blue eyes, but is so ashamed of his links to Germany he tried to cover up his family heritage for years.

After originally trying to pass himself off as a Swede, the billionaire has more recently admitted that his grandfather did indeed come from Kallstadt in Rhineland-Palatinate.

3) Knowing where a border lies

Trump's signature policy is, of course, the construction of a giant wall along the southern border of the USA to keep people from entering illegally.

Hitler, of course, was all for Germany having open borders – just as long as it was German soldiers and settlers streaming out rather than other people coming in.

4) Playing down the size of part of their anatomy

Hitler is rumoured to have grown his moustache in order to disguise the size of his nose, which the Führer was rather bashful about.

Donald Trump would certainly never try and make part of his body seem smaller than it is. He once remarked “my fingers are long and beautiful, as, it has been well documented, are various other parts of my body.”

5) Bridgehead into the UK

His failure to invade the United Kingdom may have been one of the turning points that ultimately cost Hitler the war.

Trump has already colonized his own little corner of Britain, building the Trump International Golf Links on the east coast of Scotland – which he has tried, unsuccessfully, to defend against the government's plans to build an offshore wind farm nearby.

6) Effect on the Frankfurt skyline

Hitler’s devastating war led to the destruction of the largest medieval city centre in Europe Germany.

The RAF and US Air Force bombed Frankfurt over six years between 1939-45 leaving most of the city little more than rubble.

Quite the opposite has been true of Trump, who planned to build the tallest residential building in the world in the German finance capital on the Main at the start of the millennium.

The tycoon eventually backed away from the project, possibly due to annoyance with Germany’s planning regulations.

You can understand why the Germans are not happy with Trump. He has turned his back on his people.

Calling in Kallstadt: A Visit to Donald Trump's Ancestral Home

Trump, who is currently stirring up sentiment against foreigners in the US, is himself the product of immigration -- a history that leads back to 1885. That's the year people here claim Donald Trump's grandfather Friedrich, packed his bags and departed rather suddenly for America. Friedrich was 16 at the time. Upon arrival, he first worked in New York as a barber and later managed a hotel on the West Coast before opening a bar for gold prospectors in the Yukon. Friedrich bought property in Manhattan with the money he earned. The sites where Trump's flashy towers are located today were dirt cheap back then.

But Friedrich Trump then returned to Germany, where he married Elisabeth, who lived next door.

Donald Trump appears to take aspects of his German background seriously. John Walter works for the Trump Organization, and when he visits Donald in his office, Ivana told a friend, he clicks his heels and says, “Heil Hitler,” possibly as a family joke.

Last April, perhaps in a surge of Czech nationalism, Ivana Trump told her lawyer Michael Kennedy that from time to time her husband reads a book of Hitler’s collected speeches, My New Order, which he keeps in a cabinet by his bed. Kennedy now guards a copy of My New Order in a closet at his office, as if it were a grenade. Hitler’s speeches, from his earliest days up through the Phony War of 1939, reveal his extraordinary ability as a master propagandist.

Donald Trump's grandfather ran Canadian brothel during gold rush, author says

Canadians amused by the improbable presidential run of Donald Trump might be surprised to learn the role their own country played in shaping his story.

Trump's grandfather started the family fortune in an adventure that involved the Klondike gold rush, the Mounties, prostitution and twists of fate that pushed him to New York City.

Friedrich Trump had been in North America a few years when he set out for the Yukon, says an author who's just completed a new edition of her multi-generational family biography.


By early 1901, trouble was brewing.

The Mounties announced plans to banish prostitution, and curb gambling and liquor. Trump quarrelled with his partner. Gold strikes were getting scarcer.

"The boom was over, Frederick Trump realized," Blair wrote. "He had made money; perhaps even more unusual in the Yukon, he had also kept it and departed with a substantial nest-egg."

He returned to Germany with US$582,000 in today's currency, and found a wife. But he was greeted as a draft-dodger for being away and becoming a U.S. citizen during his military years.

So he was deported from his own country. He boarded a ship for New York, his wife pregnant with Donald's dad.

The elder Trump died of pneumonia in 1918, leaving behind some real estate. His son built the empire, his grandson the global brand.

Ironically, their heir is now running for president on a platform of mass-deportation. But Donald and grandpa share some traits — an entrepreneurial spirit, and formative youthful adventures in Canada.

Donald met his first wife, Ivana, at the Montreal Olympics.
