    Same reason we invaded Nazi Germany. Because we don't want fascists anywhere in the world.
    Does that include religious fascism?

    Why on Earth is Obama sticking his oar in? His time in the spotlight is over and he should give way to President Trump.

    Hitler was elected democratically. We have to accept that democracy is flawed, and it is up to us the people to destroy fascism whenever it rears its ugly head, elected or not.
    There's a difference between democracy being flawed and people not realising what they were truly voting for.

    You would think someone who killed people in most of these countries and did something similar to one would realise how hypocritical it is to complain when someone else does it just because they are on the opposite side to you.

    Yes, fair comment. When you combine holocaust denial with the deliberate stirring of race hate against a specific minority community and a desire to stir up war with other nations, then yes, you have what is basically a Nazi government in the making.
    Why aren't you protesting against the 16 nations which forbid admission to Israeli passport holders?

    Hitler wrote Mein Kampf and published it in 1925. He literally told everyone what he wanted to do. Just like TRump. Trump broadcasted his fascist intentions.

    Hindsight is 20/20. Yes democracy can be flawed but can you say for certainty that this is an instance of flawed democracy? You claim just because Hitler being democratically was bad so is trump being elected but would you have claimed this back when Hitler was elected? Of course not. Not to mention just because that democratic example is flawed doesn't mean this is? Many democracies aren't flawed so it's wrong to only compare this with Hitler's election.

    Absolutely. Couldn't agree more.

    What is to be done about it? How about a strongly critical column in the Guardian Comment is Free Section?

    And a BBC journalist saying how awful Trump is to camera?

    All good, all useful, but let's face it these are Nazis we are facing, so would even that be enough?

    I've got it, I know, let's all sign a snowflake petition! Say how triggered we are!

    Only post #7 and you've already thrown the debate, I think it's one of the quickest shifts to Hitler I've seen for some time.

      It's impossible to please all of the people all of the time.

      I'm no fan of Trump, but this just reeks of Trump's adversaries whipping up a frenzy because - they lost and can't bear it.

      Everyone had the chance to vote, but hey, it's the majority of the voting population in outstanding hubris that decided not to.

      Trump won his authority fairly and now has a term in office which the law say's he can be voted out AFTER his term comes to and end.
      This.

      So far Trump's not really done anything that anybody else would have taken flak for. The big fuss that was made about the abortion bill... which has been repealed and reenacted repeatedly ever since Ronald Reagan first passed it in 1987 or whenever. But it's only become a Big Thing recently because it happened to be Donald Trump's turn to repeal the abortion bill.

      The ban on Muslims entering the US from countries which have become notable for terrorist activities is, frankly, something nobody should be surprised at, and as he's president and there's nothing that can really (realistically) be done about that, the world has no other options than to simply take him at his word (for the time being) and hope that what he's doing turns out to be for the best.

      At the end of the day, the situation we have is simply one to make the best of. Just like with the whole Brexit fiasco; we don't like the situation we're in, but we don't have a choice now, because we made our choice. We just have to do what we can to make the future we've made for ourselves as comfortable and hopeful as we can.

      I don't see why British people would be protesting about a policy taken by the United States which does not affect British citizens. The United States is responsible for their own policies on refugees and immigration. Their borders, their decision. Let's focus on our own issues and respect the decisions taken by our allies.

      A fascist coup is being attempted in the world's largest power. Does it surprise you that it is being discussed? :rolleyes:
      This liberal paranoia is unbelievable.
