No more messing about. They had to be careful of the legal restrictions in order to do this too.

It's interesting, several Jewish organizations are very unhappy about the comparison too.

Heh, "Stern" and the Nazi titles. It never gets old *

I don't have much of a problem with the portrayal of Trump as a Nazi, but the pun the whole thing is based on (Sein Kampf instead of Mein Kampf, Hitler's Book, i.e. his struggle instead of my struggle) is quite lame.

*google Hitler diaries, if you don't knoe what I mean.

Almost. FWIW, it's "How Donald Trump stirs hate in America."

The good news is that unlike Hitler, Trump is lazy and incompetent, so he's not going to go very far.

Yeah but it's only populated by humans.

It's not like he made it as leader of the Borg or something important.

And cancer means crab, as well. Ah, language...

I dunno about the Der Spiegel cover though. Looks far too Catholic, rather than the KKK look they are going for (the KKK wear poor imitations of the capirote, which are much, much shorter, and lack the large chest-piece).

Cancer, Princess Di and Nazis: it might as well be the Daily Mail! I remember how someone I knew who worked at Der Spiegel said that they didn't see Der Stern as their competition. . .

Not that surprising in this case. (Hint, think stars and birthdays).

Which is very ironic, given what the Mail's politics and positions were back in the Thirties...

Really Trump and Hitler are nothing alike, for one Trump couldnt write a book to save his life.

He might be nothing like Hitler personally or intellectually, but his rhetoric has been ominous, and pretty similar in a lot of ways to that of Hitler during his rise. Obviously Trump has stopped way short of actually doing anything like Hitler did, and I doubt things could ever get that far. That said, it's fair to be worried when boxes are being checked on the "are you a fascist dictator" test. I think more boxes might be checked if Trump could get out of his own way. That said, I think Trump lacks the "vision" and driving force of an actual dictator--he's just saying things that appeal to a certain part of our population and basking in the glory he's receiving at rallies etc.
