Like Father, Like Son

Or so one might conclude based on this report from Politico about some views Donald Trump Junior shared last week.

Donald Trump Jr. likened the Democratic Party’s platform to that of the Nazis during the 1930s during an appearance at a film screening Wednesday night, saying comparisons between the group and conservatives are the product of “wrongly influenced” academia. 

A real chip off the old block

The report continues.

“You see the Nazi platform in the early 1930s and what was actually put out there, and you look at it compared to, like, the DNC platform of today, and you’re saying, ‘Man, those things are awfully similar,’ to the point where it’s actually scary, and to me that was one of the most striking things I took from the movie because it’s the exact opposite that you’ve been told,” Donald Trump Jr. said during an interviewwith One America News Network.

And

“I’ve been out hearing the left talking about all these things — fascism, Nazism on the right — and when you look at the actual history of how these things evolved, and when you actually look at that platform versus the platform of the modern left, you say, ‘Wait a minute, those two are really heavily aligned and, frankly, contrary to the right,’” Donald Trump Jr. said. “It’s really more about just having actual, real history being out there. When people talk about these things, you can’t just spew that because someone told you that in a history class when academia and everything has been so influenced, and so wrongly influenced, by the left.”

For once, The Curmudgeon is speechless.
