‘Make Germany great again’, Hitler said

Make America Great Again, Donald Trump cap

From Politicus USA:

Move Over Trump: Adolf Hitler Said He Would ‘Make Germany Great Again’

By Hrafnkell Haraldsson on Fri, Nov 25th, 2016 at 7:57 am

“He told people that he would make Germany great again. He blamed Jews, Socialists, Communists, and others for the troubles of the land.”

That’s right. Donald Trump isn’t the originator of #MAGA. That would be Adolf Hitler, who, if he never made it a slogan, did make the idea “Make Germany Great Again” a central theme of his political movement.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette preserves in its January 4, 1934 issue, a syndicated biopic (“Uncle Ray’s Corner”) of the German leader. …

Make Germany great again, by Hitler

And this “Make Germany Great Again” line was no more a one-off for Hitler than for Trump. The St. Louis Star and Times carried a Hitler speech in 1940 where the Führer said,

“Nationalism and Socialism had to be redefined and they had to be blended into one strong new idea to carry new strength which would make Germany great again.”

Is there an even earlier example of this ‘great’ rhetoric than Hitler in 1934?

Yes, there is.

In July 2016, this blog quoted:

In 1927, Fox News Service filmed Benito Mussolini telling immigrants to ‘make America great’

Hitler imitated earlier fascist dictator Mussolini in various ways, including Mussolini‘s ‘Roman’ salute, which in nazi Germany became the ‘German’ salute. The ‘German’ salute as demonstrated recently by Trump-supporting neonazis in Washington DC, USA.

United States anti-Semitic right-wingers like Henry Ford inspired German nazis. When Mussolini sacked many public sector workers, he called that ‘drenare la palude’: in English, ‘drain the swamp’, a Trump slogan: here.

  1. So far, President-elect Trump has been just as terrifying as Candidate Trump. But now it’s even worse, because he will soon have the power of the presidency.

    Trump has appointed an astonishing array of bigots and misogynists to his cabinet, and he has expressed more outrage at the cast of Hamilton than at the hundreds of acts of hate committed in his name since Election Day.1

    We’ve got our work cut out for us to stand up against the 45th president’s anti-woman, white nationalist agenda. That’s why this #GivingTuesday, we’ve set a goal of raising $45,000 to make sure we have the resources for the fight.

    Click here to make your #GivingTuesday donation to fight back against President Trump.

    The attacks are already coming–and they’re not going to let up. We’ve got a two-phase plan to fight back.

    Right now we’re all-in to stop the appalling appointments of Steven Bannon, Senator Jeff Sessions, and Michael Flynn. Respectively, that’s a white nationalist anti-Semitic domestic abuser, a man deemed too racist 30 YEARS AGO to be appointed as a federal judge (who also can’t be trusted to prosecute attacks on abortion clinics), and someone who calls Islam a “vicious cancer.”2,3,4

    To stop them, we’re bringing sexual assault survivors to meet with senators and urge them to block appointees who won’t take violence against women seriously.

    Then, in the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency, we’ll mobilize the UltraViolet community to protect the 20 million Americans who rely on Obamacare for health insurance, the women who deserve equal pay for equal work, victims of gun violence, and the majority of Americans who don’t want to see Roe v. Wade overturned by a Trump nominee to the Supreme Court.

    With your support, we’ll be ready for whatever comes after that–and we know to expect the worst. Will you help us reach our goal of raising $45,000 this #GivingTuesday to stand up against the 45th president?

    Thanks for speaking out.
