My New Order has attracted the attention of the press with the rise of Donald Trump as candidate for President of the United States because his first wife Ivana Trump revealed that Donald Trump reads a book of Hitler's collected speeches, My New Order, which he keeps in a cabinet by his bed.
It can be seen that there are clear similarities between the speeches of Trump and the speeches of Hitler. Here are examples:
They repeat themselves constantly, saying the same things over and over again.
They never admit they have made a mistake nor do they ever take anything back.
To any criticism, they respond by insults and name calling.
They use a low form of language, with simple sentences even a person with the lowest level of education or with no education at all can understand.
Another contrast is the sheer volume of words.
Hitler gave a thousand speeches and spoke millions of words. Hitler communicated almost entirely through his speeches. Hitler's speeches were long, usually one and a half to two hours long.
Trump made one of the longest speeches ever to accept the Republican Party nomination for President of the United States. His speech lasted one hour fifteen minutes.
Trump communicates almost entirely through his speeches and through his tweets. Tweets are short 140-character messages. He almost never uses emails. Trump never gives an analysis or a logical justification for his views. Hitler is similar.
Trump has written nothing. His one book, "The Art of the Deal," was written by a ghostwriter. Similarly, Hitler only wrote "Mein Kampf."
One can see from the foreword here by Raoul de Roussy de Sales there are clear similarities between the speaking style of Hitler and that of Trump.
"To use constantly and untiringly the same arguments and to pound into the heads of his listeners the same formulas is part of Hitler's oratorical technique."
"Hitlers speeches are weapons as much as part of his strategy of conquest as more direct instruments of warfare. Hitler is past master of throwing up verbal smoke screens to conceal his intended moves. He knows equally well the effectiveness of massive oratorical assaults that shake the nerves of his victims and opponents and break down their resistance. He knows how to give pledges that will be broken later but will serve temporally to divide and confuse and to create the illusion of Security. He uses insults and lies in the same manner as his generals use Stuka planes and tanks to break the respectable but often weak front of his adversaries. He contradicts himself constantly but his contradictions often produce the effect of a psychological pincer-movement which crushes the best defenses of logic and ordinary morality."
"The Greatest Anthology of Broken Promises Ever Compiled." Hitler made and then broke treaties. Trump is speaking of breaking our treaties with NATO countries, and with Japan and South Korea.
This book is a collection of speeches made by Hitler during the 20, s and 30, s in which he affirmed his Anti Antisemitism, his desire for World Domination, and his contempt of efforts by the rest of the world to stop him.
The original book, published in 1941, is 1008 pages long. This is too long to be published in soft cover, so it has been divided into to volumes.
The first volume is Hitler's speeches from the rise to power, 1918 to 1933 to the bloodless annexations Annexation of Austria and the Dismemberment of Czechosolvakia.
