Former President Donald Trump has been using language reminiscent of Adolf Hitler’s rhetoric, particularly in his recent rally in New Hampshire where he referred to immigrants as “poisoning the blood” of the country.

This language, historically associated with Nazi ideology, has raised concerns among experts and observers.

Trump’s use of such rhetoric is seen as an attempt to normalize the concept of the U.S. as a white ethnostate and to stoke fear and bigotry against immigrants and minorities. (Trending: FBI Bribery Probe Caught Joe Biden’s Brother On Tape)

The impact of this language is seen as potentially damaging to social cohesion and democratic values, with warnings about the potential for more extreme actions in the future.

“They let — I think the real number is 15, 16 million people into our country. When they do that, we got a lot of work to do. They’re poisoning the blood of our country,” Trump said.

“That’s what they’ve done. They poison mental institutions and prisons all over the world, not just in South America, not just to three or four countries that we think about, but all over the world.”

“They’re coming into our country from Africa, from Asia, all over the world.”

Trump posted on Truth Social, saying, “Illegal immigration is poisoning the blood of our nation.”

In “Mein Kampf,” Hitler said, “All great cultures of the past perished only because the originally creative race died out from blood poisoning.”

Elsewhere he wrote, “It seemed as if some all-pervading poisonous fluid had been injected by some mysterious hand into the bloodstream of this once heroic body.”

“In North America the Teutonic element, which has kept its racial stock pure and did not mix it with any other racial stock, has come to dominate the American Continent and will remain master of it as long as that element does not fall a victim to the habit of adulterating its blood.”

“The Nazis made the fear of blood pollution of their master race and their civilization a foundation of their state,” Ruth Ben-Ghiat, a New York University historian of fascism said.

“Trying to dehumanize this group now over and over again to get Americans used to the idea that they should be persecuted so they won’t resist when the repression comes later, this too is a fascist tactic.”
