Yale professor compares Dump and Hitler

Continuing the last post, see this piece, where Yale professor Timothy Snyder, where he said:

"In my world, where I come from, it’s the 1930s. Picking out a group of your neighbours and citizens and associating them with the worldwide threat, that’s the 1930s. And what we have to remember with the 1930s, we think of Hitler and Stalin as super villains. But they’re not, they could only come to power with some form of consent."

"It was the fascists who said, ‘everyday life doesn’t matter'. 'Every detail doesn’t matter. Facts don’t matter. All that matters is the message, the leader, the myth, the totality’. We should be thinking about the 1920s."
