Biden Campaign Compares Trump To Hitler With On Point Graphic—And The Similarities Are Disturbing

Biden-Harris HQ X account posted a graphic drawing comparisons between the the rhetoric of the former U.S president and the former murderous dictator, particularly use of the word 'vermin' and the phrase 'poisoning the blood.'

President Joe Biden's campaign posted a graphic drawing comparisons between the rhetoric of former President Donald Trump and the infamous dictator Adolf Hitler, whose anti-immigrant sentiment and attacks against Jews and other minorities culminated in the Holocaust and the murders of millions of innocent people.

The Biden campaign posted the graphic after Trump garnered criticism for once again praising authoritarian leaders and repeating anti-immigrant and racist language.

Trump said over the weekend that immigrants are "poisoning the blood of our country," echoing fascists like Hitler, who wrote about "blood poisoning" in his book Mein Kampf.

Trump has ramped up his violent and inflammatory rhetoric in recent weeks, telling a crowd last month that his political opponents are "vermin" that he must "root out," a declaration that angered people on both sides of the aisle to say nothing of historians who've sounded the alarm about what the 2024 election could signal for the future of American democracy.

With this in mind, the Biden campaign posted its graphic—captioned "This is not a coincidence"—showing the ways Trump and Hitler's rhetoric are disturbingly similar.

The graphic draws comparisons between both men's statements about blood poisoning, particularly "contamination of the blood," and needing to "root out" political opponents, even to the point where they'd be "exterminated."

The suggestion about political opponents being "worse" than dictators in places like North Korea—a claim Trump has made more than once—also mirrors much of Hitler's declarations about insiders and the perceived threat to German national character.

Many agreed—and continued to criticize Trump and sound the alarm.

The Biden campaign posted the graphic following a ruling by the Colorado Supreme Court disqualifying Trump from the state's presidential ballot.

The state's Supreme Court issued the ruling on the grounds Trump violated Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which says former officeholders cannot run again if they’ve engaged in insurrection against the United States, an unprecedented and historic decision that takes into account Trump's actions on January 6, 2021, the day a mob of his supporters attacked the U.S. Capitol on the false premise the 2020 election had been stolen.

The court upheld Trump's involvement in inciting the Capitol riot, claiming he fueled his supporters with baseless election fraud allegations, branding it an act of insurrection. Colorado’s decision made history by preventing Trump from pursuing the presidency, marking the first instance where a state barred him due to his role in the attack.

Section 3 of the 14th Amendment prohibits anyone who engaged in insurrection after pledging to support the Constitution while in federal office from seeking office. Colorado's Supreme Court concluded that this clause encompasses the presidency.

The court has temporarily suspended its ruling until January 4th, enabling Trump to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Trump’s team swiftly expressed their intentions to pursue this route.
