    Anne Frank's step-sister and Holocaust Survivor Eva Schloss spent over a year in Auschwitz, where both her brother and father were killed. She compared Donald Trump to Hitler and said ''He is a racist, and his ideas are not acceptable in the 21st century''.

    Tell us something we don't know. It is so sad to actually think that he may win. Have we learnt nothing from history, or do we just choose to forget?

    Ms. Schloss doesn't know her history. Whatever his faults, real or perceived, Trump never gassed or exterminated anyone, or engaged in any of the Nazis' many other atrocities; Ms. Schloss's hyperbole is as absurd as it is inaccurate. And Trump, like any other American citizen - or citizen of any other nation, for that matter - has the right to limit who can come into or a citizen of his country. The concept's not a hard one: it's called national sovereignty, and is the foundation for any society founded on ordered liberty under the rule of law. Abandon that and the result is chaos, as Anne Frank herself tragically found out.

    It's the same old liberal crap that belongs in the garbage pit.

    Old Saul Alinski tactics...shrill screams and browbeating with words like HITLER, RACIST, etc. by 4th rate liberal hacks. No specifics, mind you. Their objective is to shut down debate, because they lose on facts every time. Fortunately, Trump simply doubles down on his plans....and the silent majority loves it!

    Eva Schloss is 86 years old and was likely fed information or put up to making her comments. Shame on the leftists for exploiting an elderly woman so shamelessly.

    But I don't blame the European leftists for being so alarmed at the possibility of a Trump presidency. Many Europeans are sick of the leftist leaders and media. The frustration erupted in an ugly incident in Sweden when gangs beat up immigrants.

    Aside from the far left fringe, people in the US are fed up with the PC crap and use of the terms racist and fascist. They reject leftists who call hate speech Trump's proposal to stop Muslim immigration for a period of time. They notice that leftists like to hide the fact that our Constitution does not prevent discrimination in immigration policy. In fact our quota system includes consideration of national origin.

    As in the movie, Network, people are "mad as hell and not going to take it any more".

    If Trump gets elected here, or even if he makes a good showing, that will motivate some real extremists in Europe who will make Trump look real nice by comparison. So the PC European leftists have good reason to worry. There's likelihood they'll be tossed out like garbage on a trash heap. They've overplayed their hand for years, and as Rev. Wright likes to say, the chickens are coming home to roost.

    Now expect Trump to be called not just Hitler, but Stalin - everything they can think of. It's their death rattle.

    Sadly most Americans don't know history, or the history they choose to know is viewed through a very narrow filter. Even worse, some of those who do know history, especially the neo-cons, have the arrogance to believe that they're somehow better and smarter than those in history, and don't need to heed the lessons that history offers.

    Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. A quotation from philosopher George Santayana.

    I agree with her on that one. America is diversity comes in different cultures, religions and ethnics groups.



    That may have been the case decades ago, but America is now overpopulated and riddled with corruption. We need to tend to our own before worrying about others. Where do all the bleeding heart liberals think these people are going to go? Where are they going to work? More government benefits and anchor babies. Sorry, I'm not a bigot , just a realist.

    What made America great again?

    I'm Canadian so I'm clueless as to what most Americans think is "great". I was under the impression that economic prosperity came at the expense of slave labor in China and other third world countries.

    If Trump doesn't want "them" here, then don't exploit pipelines or resources of other nations.

    I cant imagine how embarrassing his actions are to his own family, particularly his daughter who does business with the middle east. Talk about grade-A hypocrite.

    Doesn't Canada's immigration policy now exclude single Muslim men from immigrating? Isn't that unfair in your opinion?

    Immigration played a major role in this country's history. That is now a bygone era. We are now a developed, modern country with enough of our own people to care for. From this point on, immigration is now largely unnecessary and it is no longer making America great. It is just burdening us with unskilled poor people who are not prepared for modern life.

    Actually it doesn't! The original settlers were of Anglo-Dutch descent and contributed to the majority of the US' population growth, and the majority of immigrants thereafter were from Western European countries with common Judaeo-Christian values & principles. After Coolidge's immigration moratorium in the 1920s, Old World immigrants had 45 years of uninterrupted assimilation into an American identity.

    Post 1970 immigrants (thanks to Ted Kennedy) are from 3rd world nations, namely Latin America, the Middle East and southeast Asia and arrive en masse. These cultures do not come from common backgrounds and do not assimilate well to US values, norms and customs. They also have higher rates of crime, fraud, homicide and theft than those of indigenous white & black Americans in many instances.

    So no, it's a farce! America was neither made up entirely of immigrants nor different religions. It was founded based on Anglo-Saxon norms and customs with Judaeo-Christian values.

    It's time to realize that the US is NOT obligated to import the entire world, and US code permits immigration access to this country based on any discretion whatsoever.

    Once you lose the essence of a culture (i.e. American), the country ceases to exist.

    Our friend from Canada was on his soapbox, sanctimoniously suggesting we should be embarrassed, but when I pointed out the similarities between Canada's current immigration policy and what Trump suggested, he became silent. In fact, the main difference between Canada's policy excluding single Muslim men and what Trump suggested is we now realize the terrorist threat includes women and families.

    It is this immigration from the third world that continues to fuel the serious urban crisis in many of our larger cities and their first ring suburbs. The poverty industry loves it because it makes untold millions off of these poor, undereducated immigrants. It is time to shut the gates, immigration role in this country's development is largely over.

    Maybe you should address the US's GDP growth in comparison to other nations that actually PRODUCE something instead of consuming... these problems existed before Obama, or maybe your memory is starting to fail you.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03h4xtp


    She is not a student of history. There is really no comparison between the two men.

    The vast majority of Trump supporters are angry, but they are not racist. Certainly a loud element of racists have taken to Team Trump. His campaign needs to deal with that. But most of the people who are with Trump do not hate Hispanic immigrants, they are angered by law breakers who are going unpunished. They are not opposed to immigration, but to illegal immigration.

    In 2005, as the Bush Administration began to push for comprehensive immigration reform, leadership elements both in the White House and the Congressional GOP reacted to opponents of the plan by labeling all of them racist. Again, there certainly are racists who oppose immigration reform, but the brush used to paint the opponents was so broad to demand that all opponents of immigration be considered racist.

    Again in 2015, the same thing is happening. Trump is taking a very vocal stand against law breaking, including crossing the border illegally. This has been interpreted not just by the left, but by Republican establishment leaders as “we hate brown people.” Trump has been clear this is not true.

    For all his faults, he is not a racist. He was raised in the church of Norman Vincent Peale, a man who championed the power of positive thinking. Most of his supporters, though very angry, are not people who hate Mexicans. They are just outraged at the integrity of our American border being unsecured and politicized. Republicans in Washington who’ve decided to go after Trump for being a racist are again proving they do not know how to deal with Trump and are also proving they have no intention of securing the border. They just keep playing right into his hands.

    Can't possibly be any substance to it whatsoever because we know how frequently Holocaust survivors have issued warning during a US presidential election that the sky is falling.

    They are dying off, in their 90s now. And consider what they've experienced, they've stayed relatively low-key, yes? Or do you think she's going for attention to feed her overly inflated, narcissistic ego?

    What do you suppose she has to gain by issuing undue warning?

    http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/dying+declaration
    ...A dying declaration is considered credible and trustworthy evidence based upon the general belief that most people who know that they are about to die do not lie. As a result, it is an exception to the Hearsay rule...


    Or do you think she's never studied politics because, you know, how could politics possibly hurt anyone?

    http://www.irishcentral.com/opinion/niallodowd/Donald-Trump-reminds-Holocaust-survivors-of-Adolf-Hitler.html
    ...Auschwitz survivor Irene Weiss but this year even more so she told Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank.

    “I am exceptionally concerned about demagogues,” the 85-year-old Weiss said. “They touch me in a place that I remember. I know their influence and, unfortunately, I know how receptive audiences are to demagogues and what it leads to.”

    She lost her parents and brothers and sisters in the death camps. She worries deeply when she hears about Trump plans to register Muslims. “I’m worried about the tone of this country,” she said.. “It has echoes, and maybe more so to me than to native-born Americans I’m scared. I don’t like the trend. I don’t like how many people are applauding when they hear these demagogues. It can turn.”

    There are clearly racist overtones. As Milbank pointed out “Donald Trump, the front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination, retweeted to his nearly 6 million followers a message from @WhiteGenocideTM based in “Jewmerica,” and a time when his nearest challenger, Ted Cruz, brandishes the endorsement of a minister who says Hitler was a “hunter” sent after the Jews by God.

    “It’s really frightening,” said Al Munzer, who escaped as a baby hidden by a Dutch family and their Muslim nanny. “When you see these mass rallies that Trump is able to attract, you really wonder: How are they buying into this message of hate. Thinking that Germany was somehow unique is wrong,” he said.

    Johanna Gerechter Neumann, fled with her family to Albania after Kristallnacht, and told how Muslims protected them from Hitler. Her father, a proud German and World War I soldier, “certainly thought that it could never happen in Germany,” she said. “It did happen. Slowly, but it did happen.”

    “It is repeating itself, and it is again the inattention that people pay to real cues that one should understand,” said Margit Meissner, almost 94.

    “It’s not Weimar,” she said, “but it could become Weimar Germany if you have Mr. Trump here and people keep believing what he says… I think one has to speak up. And that’s the one lesson from the Holocaust: Do not be a bystander.”
