President Trump’s rise to power has come at a price, that’s for sure, as the “resistance” of the liberal left continue to degrade and defame the Commander in Chief at every turn.
And, like all things driven by the mainstream media, those who oppose President Trump have been amplified to the extremes in terms of their rhetoric and dialogue. Trump has been called a racist, a bigot, and sexist…you name it.
One of the most common slurs against the President of the United States has come in the form of a steady stream of comparisons to Adolph Hitler – something that is highly offensive to those who were affected by the Holocaust.
Nevertheless, here we are talking about yet another celebrity who couldn’t find some more creative and less horrific way to insult the leader of the free world.
During an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper aired on Monday, legendary pop singer Linda Ronstadt went there.
Ronstadt said, “Great parallels. I mean the intelligentsia of Berlin and literati and all artists were just doing their thing, and as Hitler rose to power, there were a lot of chances to stop him, and they didn’t speak out. The industrial complex thought they could control him once they got him in office, and of course, he was not controllable. By the time he got established, he put his own people in place and stacked the courts and did what he had to do to consolidate his power, and we got Hitler. He destroyed Germany, destroyed centuries of intellectual history, forward and backward. People like Beethoven, Goethe, and Thomas Mann became jokes. They became Nazi laughing stocks.”
Cooper pushed, “I think a lot of people would be surprised to hear comparisons between what happened then and now.”
Ronstadt said, “If you read the history, you won’t be surprised. It is exactly the same. You find a common enemy for everybody to hate. I was sure that Trump was going to get elected the day he announced. I said he’s going to—it is going to be like Hitler and the Mexicans are the new Jews. And sure enough, that is what he delivered.”
Again, these ridiculous assertions do little to damage President Trump, due to the overt and unflappable partisanship that the mainstream media has delivered in 2019. All that is accomplished by saying such things is a dredging up of the horrors of the Holocaust, and an inexcusable desensitization toward these events.
