    Well he had a plan alright. But it was easy as antisemitism was already wide spread.

    And we have Islamaphobia, or Xenophobia, which is also wide spread. Just look at you, or Grumpy.

    So. . .it doesn't bother you to support a person who can take America to one of the most shameful period of the history of the world? You are pleased with Trump and his puppet master, Bannon?

    You obviously did not read the reference in the OP. It focused on the way Hitler rose to power, and at each step of his rise. The reference ends with a powerful message,

    Hitler needed only five months to establish his power. By the summer of 1933, fundamental rights and the constitution had been suspended, the states had been forced into conformity, the unions crushed, the political parties banned or dissolved, press and radio brought into line and the Jews stripped of their equality under the law. Everything that existed in Germany outside of the National Socialist Party had been "destroyed, dispersed, dissolved, annexed or absorbed," François-Poncet concluded in early July. Hitler, he claimed, had "won the game with little effort." "He only had to puff -- and the edifice of German politics collapsed like a house of cards."

    Yes there was antisemitism, but that isn't the only horror of Hitler. He also invaded Europe, and your only comment brushes aside that rise to power as, "antisemitism was already wide spread."
