Whatever one may think of it, businessman Donald Trump’s recent call for a temporary U.S. ban on Muslim immigration is in no way directly comparable to the very genuine horrors of the Holocaust, or the murderous regime of Adolf Hitler; however, that hasn’t stopped many media outlets from using photographic content to foster the comparison.
The Times of Israel originally used a photo of Trump with his arm extended, taken last week at the Republican Jewish Coalition meeting in Washington. That photo has been removed.
The Daily Mail noted the comparisons here and included side-by-side photos of both Trump and Hitler.
Shaun King at the New York Daily News points out a Philadelphia Daily News portrayal of Trump as Hitler – as did the Business Insider – but King seems to have overlooked his paper’s recent labeling of the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre a “terrorist,” and his colleague Linda Stasi blaming a Jewish victim of the San Bernardino terrorism for his own murder.
In a new low even for the New York Daily News, which recently branded NRA chief Wayne LaPierre a terrorist, columnist Linda Stasi has penned a vile column justifying the San Bernardino jihad murders, saying that one of the victims was “the male equivalent of Pamela Geller.”
And even before all this, there was John Kasich with an ad portraying Trump as Hitler – as Breitbart reported two days ago: Kasich Gives Half-Hearted Defense of His ‘Trump as Hitler’ Ad
Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Republican presidential candidate Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) said his ad attacking his rival Donald Trump is not likening him to Hitler, as it has widely been criticized for, but instead just a POW who wants to make sure, “have an American president who’s gonna unite us and not divide us.”
