5. SEXUALLY SLANDERING ETHNIC GROUPSAs part of his campaign to sow distrust and hatred against the Jews, Hitler attempted to make Germans feel like they were being maliciously and sexually targeted by Jewish males. He wrote: “The Jewish youth lies in wait for hours on end…spying on the unsuspicious German girl he plans to seduce…He wants to contaminate her blood and remove her from the bosom of her own people.”
Donald Trump has repeatedly called Latino immigrants killers and rapists: “When Mexico sends its people…they’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.” On another occasion he referred to “people from all over that are killers and rapists and they’re coming into this country” and also “somebody’s doing the raping, Don. I mean somebody’s doing it! Who’s doing the raping?” He’s a master at planting seeds of fear, just like Hitler was.
