For much of the campaign, we were subjected to redundant and ridiculous assertions that President Trump and/or his policies were fascist, reminiscent of Nazi Germany, or even the next Hitler. Thankfully most of those thoughtless charges seemed to vanish after the election…until now. President Trump’s address to the National Boy Scout Jamboree on Monday evening was used by liberals as an opportunity to inappropriately compare him to Hitler.
For their information Presidents have been addressing the Boy Scout Jamboree since FDR in 1937. As a former Boy Scout myself I remember that each President of The United States serves as the honorary president of the Boy Scouts of America and that’s the reason every president is invited to address the Jamboree.
“Unhinged liberals and radical left-wing activists likened President Trump’s Monday night speech before the National Boy Scout Jamboree with Nazi Germany; comparing the President’s address with those given by Adolf Hitler during the 1930s.
“President Donald Trump received a warm reception from scouts and leaders at the 2017 National Boy Scout Jamboree, where he delivered a speech to the nearly 40,000-strong crowd.
‘A lot of love in this big, beautiful place,’ Trump said to Jamboree-goers. At one point, the massive crowd began chanting ‘We Love Trump!’
“Liberal activists did not view the speech too kindly, with many conflating the imagery with Hitler’s address before Nazi Youth rallies commonplace throughout the 1930s.”
Among those who made the comparison on Twitter were:
Jon Wolfsthal who made the Hitler Youth comparison even though, ironically he was an advisor to Barack Obama, the most anti-Semitic president since FDR
Nancy Lee Grahn, an actress on the Soap Opera General Hospital who should have studied a bit more history and a little less of the Stanislavski method tweeted:
Tragically, #boyscouts in 2017 applaud Trump just like the all blonde blue eyed youth did for Hitler in the 30's.
