Comparisons can go full circle

The Virginia Gazette

This is in response to Mr. Lewis Williams' letter in the June 29 Virginia Gazette. It is not a defense of Trump. The question in my mind raised by Mr. Williams' letter is, why do we continue to see articles in the media comparing Trump to Hitler, but we have never seen President Obama or Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders (who went to live in a Stalinist Kibbutz in Israel) compared to V.I. Lenin or Joseph Stalin? After all, Lenin and Stalin were "collectivists": And "collectivism" is just an old fashioned term for "wealth redistribution".
