Letter to the editor: Trump tactics have precedent

Trump uses Nazi tactics. Our president uses the same tactics favored by Adolph Hitler.
“The message of the Nazi Party was simple and direct: it would restore Germany’s prosperity and crush the Jewish and Communist world conspiracy. The means of putting the message across were brutal and efficient. Hitler had a natural genius for mob oratory and realized the way to get results was to pitch the message on an emotional rather than intellectual plane, and to direct it to the most stupid elements of the audience. The message was driven home by endless repetition, the vehemence of the language, and the violence carried into the meetings and onto the streets by the Nazi ‘brown-shirt’ militia, the Stormtroopers.” — Illustrated World War II Encyclopedia, Lt. Col. Eddy Bauer, 1966.
