Make That Two Former Mexican Presidents Who Have Compared Trump to Hitler

Why Are People Comparing Trump to Hitler? (MTV News)

Less than 24 hours after former Mexican president Vicente Fox likened the Republican presidential front-runner to history’s most infamous dictator, another former president, Felipe Calderon, did the same.

This logic of praising the white supremacy is not just anti-immigration," Calderon told   reporters in Mexico City on Saturday. “He is acting and speaking out against immigrants that have a different skin color than he does, it is frankly racist and [he is] exploiting feelings like Hitler did in his time.”

Earlier that day, Vicente Fox, Calderon’s predecessor in office, told CNN anchor Anderson Cooper that Trump “reminds me of Hitler.”

Though commentators have examined the question of whether Trump’s speeches are fascist since last year, the comparisons have cropped up in numerous corners of the media this week. The linguist and academic Noam Chomsky said in an interview with Alternet that the present conditions of American society mirror those that led to Hitler’s rise to power in Germany in the 1930s. A widely circulated feature on Trump written by Matt Taibbi of “Rolling Stone” compared Trump’s onstage manner to Benito Mussolini, the fascist dictator who served as Hitler’s chief ally during World War II.
