Donald J. Trump — the real estate tycoon who has unexpectedly zoomed to the front of the 2016 Republican Presidential primary contest — has said a number of audacious things. He has proposed banning Muslims from emigrating to the United States, and says that he hasn’t ruled out tagging them and setting up a national database to track their movements.

This brand of ethnocentric hate is not new. The world has seen many leaders yield bigotry as a tool to rally support. One such leader is a former German Chancellor by the name of Adolf Hitler.

Is it fair to compare the rhetoric of Donald Trump with that of Adolf Hitler? I guess the first test might be whether you can tell them apart.

Give it a shot.*
