Joe Stalin warns us about Adolph Hitler



Former President Barack Obama invoked Nazi Germany to urge attendees of a Q&A session to remain vigilant in today's political age, according to a journalist who attended the event.

Crain's Chicago Business reporter Greg Hinz attended the event at the Economic Club of Chicago where Obama was quizzed by Ariel Investments President Mellody Hobson about his beliefs on a variety of subjects.

Obama said the United States had survived tough times before and could do so again, mentioning the age of McCarthyism and the attempted impeachment of former President Richard Nixon as examples.

The two-term Democrat expressed the importance of a free press and urged the country not to "grow complacent," saying "we have to tend to this garden of democracy or else things could fall apart quickly."

Hinz writes Obama then brought up the specter of Adolf Hitler, who came to power in Democratic Germany amid the financial crisis of the 1930's.

"Sixty million people died…" he reports Obama said. "So, you've got to pay attention. And vote."

On Twitter, Hinz called the comments "remarkable" and framed them as a rebuke of current president Donald Trump.

1. obama's warning should not go unheeded

there are many americans, on all sides of politics, with authoritarian tendencies. in bad economic times these tendencies can surface into yearning for a strong leader to solve america's problems. perhaps that yearning did contribute to the rise of trump?

whatever their faults, were obama or the clintons considered to be "strong leaders" by anyone? on the other hand i'd invite you to visit a subreddit, "thedonald."

2. "there are many americans, on all sides of politics, with authoritarian tendencies"

 

A solid argument in favor of minimalist government.

3. Actually Hillary is the reason Trump was elected. However ....

Obama's record didn't do much to help her.

4. both the incredibly bad nominee

and her predecessor, who raided the treasury to benefit his wall st benefactors and continued waging the senseless war, contributed to trump's victory in the general election. how can you possibly explain his victory in the primaries?
many of his opponents had stronger conservative cred than he?

6. The Nominees were Spineless Jellyfish And the Country was ANGRY

Mainly the working class who became sick and tired of the Political rhetoric of the left, if nothing else Bush and Obama have that class of people pissed off at the whole Political system, 2018 is going to be interesting,we are going to find out just how pissed they are when they go back to the voting booth.

7. I view Trump as an eccentric political genius. ...

He is like a pitcher for the Cleveland Indians baseball team who becomes the quarterback for the Cleveland Browns football team and leads the team to a Super Bowl victory in his rookie season.

Trump basically ripped up the rule book on how to play politics and flushed it down the toilet. He laughs at political correctness, insults any and all political opponents and is all too often an obnoxious ass. He actually seems to relish infuriating the main stream media and driving it into proving that it is truly fake news. Often he tweets something viewed as totally stupid but later it proves wise or true. He has reduced illegal immigration without building a fence and somehow the Swamp is in the process of draining itself. His mere presence has triggered a skyrocketing stock market and it looks like the ecomony will grow at a rate better than 3% in his first year.

Timing is everything and it seems Trump is well aware of it and picked a great time to strike. Enough Republicans were sick of the "promise them everything but give them nothing" Republican candidates to allow Trump to win the primaries. Then he faced Hillary, the "most qualified" but worst presidential candidate in modern history, and did the impossible by finding a path to victory in the Electoral College.

Trump may not be known as the most interesting man in the world but he is definitely the most interesting president in my lifetime.
