Donald Trump: The 'Fascist' Who Cuts Taxes And Deregulates (Whose policies are closer to Nazis?)
IBD ^ | 08/23/2017 | Kerry Jackson

Evverybody knows by now that President Trump is a fascist. He's a Nazi just like the white supremacists who marched in Charlottesville, Va., on Aug. 12. We know this because the mainstream media, a host of dimwit celebrities, various Democratic politicians and the highly reputable antifa tell us he is.

What we really know, though, is these groups don't know anything except how to shriek louder and longer than everyone else. A few also well know how to break other people's property and set things that don't belong to them on fire. But they don't know their history, and therefore don't know what they're talking about.

But we're here to help them out, so let's make some comparisons.

First, take a look at taxes. Trump wants to cut them. But the Nazis were no tax-cutters.

"These Nazi radicals think of nothing except 'distributing the wealth,' " a German businessman wrote in a letter that was mentioned in "The Vampire Economy: Doing Business Under Fascism," a book written in 1939 by German author Guenter Reimann.

"Some businessmen were studying Marxist theories, so that they will have a better understanding of the present economic system. ... You cannot imagine how taxation has increased."

The Nazi regime doubled the corporate tax rate from 20% to 40% between 1936 and 1939, according to "Hitler's Beneficiaries: Plunder, Racial War, and the Nazi Welfare State" by Gotz Aly. The Nazi government then soaked the rich during the war, doubling their taxes, says Aly.

Which modern-day U.S. political party does that sound more like? Trump's or the party of his most vocal critics'?

Here is text from an interview of Hitler by the AP in 1932:

18. August 1932 Dok. 173
Interview mit Associated Press 1
The Manchester Guardian vom 20.8 . 1 932, “Nazi Economic Policy”

When asked wether the Nazi movement’ s opposition to the big industrial concerns meant that Hitler wanted all large factories and businesses to be abolished, he replied:

“I would not be so silly as to try to eliminate all large concerns . You cannot ‘build’ railway engines in a blacksmith’s shop nor ocean liners in a rowing-boat shed. You must remember, however, that we live close to a country where Communism is exclusively preached and where
an attempt is made to put it into effect. We also have millions of unemployed in our country.

“lt would not do to have wealth and property concentrated in the hands of a few people or a few concerns. When this property is wisely distributed among millions of our people - that is, when everybody has their share of the goods of the world, - then we hope to supply the proper
offset to the Communists ideas.

“We want our middle class, which is becoming poorer and poorer and whose means of livelihood are cut off more and more by large business concerns to be placed in a position where they can have their share in these goods.”

By my reading, he is saying we have to go “full-commie” so we then distinguish ourselves from the commies.

To be fair, I’m still waiting for any tax cut.

NAZI’s were The National Socialist German Workers’ Party of 1939.

Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei 

Here in the US: they use the moniker Democrats.

Their largest funder is from a family that collaborated with the NAZI’s during WW2
