During an interview, Democrat Nikki Fried who is running for Governor made derogatory remarks on Governor DeSantis saying, “He is doing everything possible to take power away from local governments, taking away people’s abilities to protest, making it harder to vote, talking about, you know, banning books. That’s what dictators do.” In this article, we look at the common narcissistic personality traits of Hitler and DeSantis.

Who is Ron DeSantis?

Ron DeSantis is American Republic politician and a native Floridian currently serving as the 46th Governor or Florida.

Who was Hitler?

Adolf Hitler was one of the most notorious and ruthless figures in human history. He was the leader of the German Nazi party and one of the most despised people to ever walk the Earth. He was a brutal dictator and his regime was marked by extreme brutality, repression of dissent, and the implementation of racist and genocidal policies. He condoned a substantial number of war crimes, including the genocide of European Jews during the World War II. He and his regime mercilessly and systematically murdered six million Jews and their allies and collaborators – an event that is infamously known as the Holocaust. The Holocaust was the worst crime in history of humanity and the worst example of what extreme nationalism can lead to.

Similarities between Hitler and DeSantis

  1. Conservative mindset and ideology – DeSantis defends his administration’s decision to block an advanced placement African American studies course, arguing that it amounts to indoctrination. He questions the inclusion of topics such as queer theory and abolitionist movements in the curriculum, considering them as political agendas. This concerning pattern of suppressing the black community and the aggressive attempt to erase Black history is one of the noticeable demonstrations of supremacy – a propaganda tactic similar to that of Nazi Germany that led to the genocide of 6 million Jews.
  2. Authoritarian Dictatorship – Former Florida Commissioner of Agriculture and Democrat Nikki Fried, during an interview, compared DeSantis to Hitler saying they are similar in a lot of ways. Nikki views DeSantis’ actions as a threat to democracy, local autonomy, and individual rights. She expressed her concerns, stating that he is taking power away from local governments, putting restrictions on protests, and above all, reviving the WWII-era civilian military force, the Florida State Guard. She believed that DeSantis is doing this for power and instill fear in people.
