Op-Ed: Biden as von Hindenburg to Trump as Hitler?

Hindenburg, reportedly not very fond of Adolf Hitler, nevertheless made him Chancellor (dw.com)

Paul von Hindenburg (October 2, 1847 – August 2, 1934) was a German general and statesman who led the Imperial German Army during World War I and later became President of Germany from 1925 until his death during the Weimar Republic. During his presidency, he played a key role in the Nazi Machtergreifung in January 1933 when, under pressure from advisers, he appointed Adolf Hitler as Chancellor of Germany. (Wikipedia)

Von Hindenburg was a doddering 85-year-old leader who tried to stand up to Hitler and failed.

I know the parallel is not exact, but Biden is doddering and old and the last best hope for democracy while Trump is becoming more and more Hitlerian.

  1. Tom says:

    Biden is Von Hindenburg, but in the sense that he was the figurehead for a socialist movement that used him to convince the moderates they were acceptable then they took over once he was out of the way.
