Trump And Hitler

By Christopher Brauchli/Common Dreams

What one Christian does is his own responsibility. What one Jew [Muslim] does is thrown back at all Jews [Muslims]. - Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl (1944)

Being a person of neither creative nor mental ability, he mindlessly finds himself inspired by the actions of a man who, many years ago, like Trump, was driven by a fierce hatred for a group of people he considered threatening to his way of life. In Trump, this hatred manifests itself in Islamophobia.

Both before and after becoming president, Trump's anti-Muslim sentiments were well-known. During the presidency of Barack Obama, Trump repeatedly insinuated in public comments that the president was secretly a Muslim. At a campaign rally in 2015, one of the attendees said to Trump, without being contradicted by Trump, that Obama is "not even an American."

'If Grandma Is On the Table, No One Will Blink At The Price' | A Former Drug Company Manager Explains Industry Price-Setting

By Fran Quigley/Common Dreams
As their Gilead counterparts did, Pfizer's team ignored research and manufacturing costs, instead focusing on discovering the maximum price that insurers would be willing to pay, and at what price level physicians would balk at prescribing the drug. Worried about the intimidating nature of a $10,000 per month cost, Pfizer settled on the same approach that cause microwave ovens and flat-screen TVs to so often carry price tags ending with 99 dollars or 99 cents. Executives decided that a new breast cancer drug would be sold at $9,850 a month.
