Trump: History Is Repeating Itself

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. ~ George Santayana
A depressing part of being a history buff is the feeling this election has all happened before.

Muslims Are the Modern Jew
They are all enemies... 
"Every Jew is our enemy." ~ Joesph Goebbels, Die Juden sind schuld! (1941)
"Every Muslim is a terrorist." ~ Virginia man at a community meeting (2015)

They are all parasites...
"The Jew is the parasite of humanity. He can be a parasite for an individual person, a social parasite for whole peoples, and the world parasite of humanity." ~ G. G. Otto, Der Jude als Weltparasit (1944)
"followers of Mohammed cannot by Muslim law (shariah) integrate or assimilate into the host nation’s culture. Rather they feed off the host country until the time when they have sufficient political, financial, social and military power to overthrow the host country and replace it with Islam." ~ Rich Swier, The Muslim Parasite and the Western Host (2015)
And they are the face of evil.
Suss the Jew (1940)

The Sweet Face of Islam (2016)
Non-Whites Are...
Untermensch, subhuman, the Nazi term for Slavs, Gypsies, blacks, and, of course, Jews. They were inferior...
"Mulattos and Finn-Asian barbarians, Gipsy’s [sic] and black skin savages all make up this modern underworld of subhuman’s that is always headed by the appearance of the eternal Jew." ~ Heinrich Himmler, Der Untermensch (1942)
"There are those who contend that it does not benefit African-Americans to get them into the University of Texas where they do not do well, as opposed to having them go to a less-advanced school, a less — a slower-track school where they do well." ~ Justice Antonin Scalia (2015)
"Why babble about brutality and be indignant about tortures? The masses want that. They need something that will give them a thrill of horror." ~ Adolph Hitler (ca 1934)
"They’re (Mexicans) bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people." ~ Donald Trump (2015) 
race defilers...
"Extramarital relations between Jews and subjects of the state of German or related blood are forbidden." ~ Nuremberg Laws (1935)
"Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young white girl before they leave, which is a real sad thing because then we have another issue we have to deal with down the road." ~ Paul LePage (2016)
who need to be eliminated.
"I hope to see the very concept of Jewry completely obliterated." ~ Heinrich Himmler (1941)
When Old Yeller brings us slippers, give him a biscuit; when he foams at the mouth, you shoot him between the eyes. Any questions? You got to do it. America, you got to cleanse this country. ~ Ted Nugent (2015)
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country. ~ Hermann Goering (1946) awaiting war crimes trial
I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America. He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country. ~ Rudy Giuliani (2015)
I could go on with examples of nationalism and misogyny but I'm getting seriously depressed by this exercise. Ask any historian. This path has been trod before with disastrous results.
