Trump is using the Nazi play book to remain in power. When you look back into history around how Hitler seized power Germany, you come up with roughly 5 points:
- Create a crisis.
- Demonize opponents.
- Declare a state of emergency.
- Undermine elections.
- Make the rule of law irrelevant.
- Bully opponents and allies
Currently he is using three of these five, one, two, four, and six. he is creating a crisis that there is mass fraudulent votes in the 2020 election, he is demonising the Democratic party and their candidates as well as their supporters, and he is undermining the election results in connection to point 1.
When you examine the fake crisis he is creating Trump continues to provided no evidence for his allegations of “tremendous corruption and fraud,”
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (one of Trump’s top allies) has publicly rebuked him on TV for failing to produce evidence to support his unfounded claims that Democrats were stealing the election from him.
He has even tried this before in 2016 when he claimed that winning the Electoral College he also won the popular vote “if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally”. (28/11/2016)
After becoming President he launched a commission to investigate his fake claims of rampant voter fraud and voter suppression in the 2016 election. The commission was disbanded after numerous states had refused to cooperate with the commission, and cited concerns over voter suppression.
Trump and his family have even tried to bully their allies with threats around 2024. Trump’s eldest son, Don Jr., took to Twitter to attack Republican 2024 presidential hopefuls for failing to be aggressive enough in defending the president.
