Must see video: Trump Copies Hitler
by World Socialist Web Site
Wednesday Oct 7th, 2020 7:38 AM
A video tweeted by President Trump depicting his return to the White House on October 5, 2020 after being hospitalized with COVID-19 was clearly modeled after Hitler's arrival at the 1934 Nazi Party Congress in the Nazi film Triumph of the Will.

Below is a short video showing Nazi Trump having difficulty breathing, which explains why he took off his mask so quickly. That is the most significant item in this staged "return." Among other places, it was cited on Democracy Now, 10/6/20, at https://www.democracynow.org/2020/10/6/headlines/covid_positive_trump_returns_to_wh_removes_mask_as_number_of_coronavirus_cases_around_him_mount: At times Trump appeared to be short of breath and panting.

It is Nazi Trump's politics that make him the same as Hitler, not his theatrics.

Those of us who are the First Generation After World War 2, including the Holocaust, heard the drumbeat lie "Oh, we didn't know" from Germans who survived WW2 and had been Hitler followers at least until 1975, a generation after WW2, when the 2 American fascist wars against Korea and then Vietnam finally dominated the news and lessons on fascism. Here is a good photo:

Of course, you, the Trump Terrorists, know very well as we have instant information, 24/7, online and on Twitter. You are too young to remember anything about WW2 or the Confederacy, or just about anything before 2000 if you are under 30. Yet, you turned out at Charlottesville with Nazi and Confederate flags uttering anti-Semitic and other racist trash, as your well-fed bodies moved quickly while carrying dangerous, stinking torches spewing smoke into your lungs. Just as the ashes from the crematoria rained down on German residents' heads and homes, so too is COVID19 and the complete destruction of the American economy pulling you, and everyone else down today.

The World Socialist Website, organ of the Socialist Equality Party, which is NOT on the California ballot but does appear on this website occasionally, is a staunch supporter of nuclear power, which means that as far as all socialists in this country are concerned, they are not socialist at all. Their articles from 2011 in the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, state their support of nuclear power at:

The trope that the World Socialist Web Site is "pro-nuclear" is a very stale one. The World Socialist Web Site is anti-capitalist and pro-worker. Socialists are dogmatic about only one thing: they would put human needs before private profits.

Pseudo-leftists such as "The Truth Shall Make You Free" do not respond to the issues described: Trumps plagiarism of Hitler's propaganda or Governor's Newsom's denial of the needs of immigrants in California.

Such truths make them indignant and angry because they see only one issue: Nuclear Energy.

Such pseudo-leftists change the subject, and distort topics to conform to their ultimately pro-capitalist world-view.

They do not acknowledge how California routinely and systematically thwarts democracy and disallows parties like the SEP on its ballots. (Or also, parties like the Peace and Freedom Party and the Green Parties which function as clubs for many pseudo-leftists).

I distrust the nuclear industry. I am anti-war and anti-nuclear weapons. Those that promote capitalism ultimately promote the dangers of nuclear power and nuclear wars.

To readers at Indybay-- follow the links "The Truth Shall Make You Free" gave and read for yourselves what the World Socialist Web Site really has to say about nuclear power.

For those who want to understand what I mean by the description of "pseudo-left," read the attached .pdf.

Do not be fooled: a vote for Trump, OR for Biden is ultimately anti-worker and pro-capitalism. The capitalist system cannot be reformed, it only promises greater austerity and pain.

Both the Republican and Democratic parties most fear a real uprising of youth and workers like those who went to the streets over the murder of George Floyd.

They most fear the realization of the masses that Floyd may not have been murdered because of his skin color (another stale trope that promotes identity over class issues), but because he was, like most of us whatever our color or background, poor and vulnerable.

People rose spontaneously in Floyd's defense because they realized suddenly that his fate could belong to anyone, and that at root, all humans are the same.
