War Rhetoric and Adolf Hitler

“We’re dealing with Hitler revisited. A totalitarianism and a brutality that is naked and unprecedented in modern times”. (George Bush, Republican Campaign Rally, Manchester, New Hampshire. 23 October 1990)

“And what we know about fascists is that they need to be defeated. And it is why, as we have heard tonight, socialists and trade unionists and others joined the International Brigade in the 1930s to fight against Franco. It’s why this entire House stood up against Hitler and Mussolini.” (Hilary Benn, House of Commons 2 November 2015)
