Letter: Trump brings out the worst in America

I have to express my concern for the direction the current political dialogue this country has taken.

It alarms me deeply to see a parallel to the political climate of Germany in the 1920s and 1930s and that of the United States today. Adolph Hitler mesmerized a civilized and democratic nation to unspeakable levels of frustration and hate. In the process he engulfed the world in the greatest human conflagration the planet has ever experienced.

The character and conduct of Donald Trump is dangerously close in style and fervor to that of Adolph Hitler, playing on the ignorance and fears of the public and wildly lashing out at the existing social and political order, vilifying anyone and anything that stands in his way.

The German people were ultimately asleep to the direction they allowed their country to take, with catastrophic consequences.

A wise pundit once said, “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” I hope the electorate of this nation will stop and think and wake up to this reality before it is too late and overwhelmingly defeat Donald Trump at the polls in November.

With that objective in mind I offer this letter for your thoughtful consideration.
