|Raise your right hand for a Trump pledge|
|Mid 1930s Germany|
At first, no one took him seriously, but he would eventually solidify his rise to power during the month of March. His first name has six letters. He wrote a bestselling book. He was known for using hatred and racism in advancing his political objectives. He would scold and berate anyone who disagreed with him. When his political party started fearing his candidacy, he would threaten to leave. He blamed specific groups for the problems of the country, targeted these groups, saying individuals in this group should wear ID's and be deported. He would eventually expand his hate, targeting women, homosexuals, people of color, immigrants, and individuals with disabilities. His followers would raise their right hands to pledge their support for him. He said his goal was to make his country great again. His name was . . . Adolph Hitler, and in March 1933, the Reichstag adopted the Enabling Act of 1933, essentially giving Chancellor Adolf Hitler the power to eventually make the government into a de facto legal dictatorship. Never forget.
