A wave of extremist far-right movements with chilling echoes of the Nazis is being fueled by Donald Trump, writes Sadiq Khan on 80th anniversary of World War II.
The rise of far-right movements and leaders fueled by President Donald Trump, the global poster boy for white nationalism threatens to wipe out the lessons of World War II, London Mayor Sadiq Khan charged in a scathing essay Saturday.
An entire generation of brave men and women around the globe sacrificed everything to defeat the singular evil of Nazism and fascism, Khan wrote in The Observer to mark the 80th anniversary of the Nazi invasion of Poland that launched World War II.
But now, for the first time in more than 70 years, it seems the lessons of the second world war are genuinely at risk of being forgotten or, worse still, being rewritten, he added.
This comes as a new wave of extremist far-right movements and political parties are winning power and influence at alarming speed fueled by Donald Trump, the global poster-boy for white nationalism, Khan wrote.
In addition, democratic values, including the rule of law, a free press and independent judiciary are under siege, he wrote. Vulnerable, often minority, communities are being demonized ... and in appalling new parallels with the horrors of the past, migrants, refugees, people of color, LGBTQ+ and Jewish communities are bearing the brunt, he added.
Hungarys Viktor Orbán has systematically destroyed the independence of both the judiciary and the press institutions that are also under daily verbal attack from Trump and other far-right leaders around the world, Khan noted.
We owe it those lost in World War II to defend the ideals they died for and ensure that the more peaceful and stable world they built lasts for generations to come, he declared.
There was no immediate response from Trump, but he has blasted Khan several times in the past, including insulting him as a stone-cold loser as the president headed to London for a state visit in June.
London’s Khan is mental. Starting with the book he was raised on.
Awesome pic! Hopefully President Trump will set the record straight on just who Hitler’s true political descendants are.
It’s the blame your opponent for what you do.
“Hungarys Viktor Orbán has systematically destroyed the independence of both the judiciary and the press institutions that are also under daily verbal attack from Trump and other far-right leaders around the world, Khan noted.”
This us another example.
If England was paying any attention to the lessons of the Holocaust — it wouldn’t be letting in millions of Muslims.
Dang, I was hoping I could be the poster boy for White Nationalism.
I love my nation just as much as he does. It’s all so unfair.
Imagine, hating someone because they wanted their nation to excel and be strong. Whites want that. Blacks want it. Latino heredity people do. Why hate everyone who is a citizen and loves the U. S. and wants it to succeed.
One things if for certain, that mayor of London will never be accused of being a nationalist.
He can’t even grasp the definition.
He thinks it means racist. I’m surprised each time I hear of him, that his head hasn’t collapsed yet.
We need to use the term “White Globalist” for the kkk.
s hatred , and his pals are the people who hate Jews, and want to see them killed so next time Khan open his mouth he needs to look in the mirror
Goat humping TDS moron.
I always wondered why the opening tank battle scene in “Patton” took place in North Africa. I don’t think that movie even explained the link between Hitler and Islam. I know history hasn’t. It’s up to us to enlighten our fellow man.
Oh yeah, we really need to hear from a Moslem on this subject. the group that openly aligned themselves with Hitler during WWII, and have been heard to say the only thing they have against Hitler is that he didn’t finish the job.
Taqqiyah... lying to infidels to strengthen Islam.
Omar does it ALL of the time. Tlaib, too.
Khan and Steinmeier must have drawn the short straws for delivering the five minutes of hate this weekend, as both are attacking Trump and/or the anti-EU/anti-migration forces.
Trump’s white??? I thought he was ORANGE. And BAD
It was American white nationalists that saved Europe from the Nazis.
Mayor Sadiq Khan is a brown nationalists... and a Trumpaphobe...
Like that muzzie should speak?
The Mayor of London is a muslim? only in America !!
Re your pic: Spot on. Khan is a shameless liar. The biggest enemies of Jews are Muslims like Khan. Trump moved our embassy to Jerusalem, he respectfully visited the Western Wall wearing a Kippah, and he is widely regarded in Israel as one of Israel’s greatest friends. Tagging the anti-Semite tag on him is a repulsive slander.
