Okay, before I begin, I’d like to note that I’m writing this as a reaction to the way President Aquino and many of his allies in the LP seem to brand people they don’t like as “Nazis”. Indeed, when the president (and soon to be former president) went to Japan, he called the occupying Chinese forces in the West Philippine Sea “Nazis” and allegedly even compared leading presidential candidate Mayor Rodrigo Duterte to Adolf Hitler himself, saying that Filipinos should best remember how Nazi Germany’s Fuhrer rose to power all those years ago. Then you have Mar Roxas claiming that the supporters of the LP are threatening and harassing him like “Nazis”.
Well ladies and gentlemen, the big problem here is that President Aquino and his allies seem to throw words like “Nazi” and “Hitler” around too liberally without truly understanding what they mean. The word “Hitler” seems to have become a go-to word for President Aquino to describe an individual he doesn’t like and the word “Nazi” has become a go-to word for people he reviles. Truth be told, if one looks at Hitler and the Nazis in history books, they’re more complicated than the LP seems to think they are and are actually the ones that resemble them more.

And lastly, to be honest, if Hitler and the Nazis of World War II are comparable to anyone in this day and age, look no further than President Aquino himself and his LP allies. Indeed, what’s sad is that the current president seems to miss out on the actual mentality of Hitler and his many followers in Nazi Germany and the sheer hypocrisy of him not knowing that he is a better analogue of Nazism than anyone else. Of course, considering how President Aquino seems to grasp history, the idea of him being the “Hitler” of the Philippines flies way over his balding head.
Of course, we all know that Hitler and the Nazis were anti-Semitic. However, inspecting Hitler’s years growing up will reveal that his hate for Jews goes a lot deeper than one might assume. As a matter of fact, Hitler’s mindset is not at all that different from President Aquino.
Hitler’s mother was but a poor woman at the time who struggled in an economically devastated country. Forced to work menial and often difficult jobs for rich Jews, the young Adolf saw how her mother’s employers often looked down on her. Later on in life, he would be denied entry to a school in Austria as it seems that the school authorities were more interested in accepting other students. Unfortunately, all Adolf Hitler saw was that some of the more popular students and school admins were in fact Jews and thus his hatred of them deepened. His anti-Semitic mindset would go on to be the main theme for his allies later on in life.
President Aquino, while not anti-Semitic, is certainly vindictive. Observe how he goes out of his way to punish those he deems are enemies of his family. Note how he seems insistent on former presidents Arroyo and Marcos being the “villains” of history and has them arrested on charges that are not even clearly defined. Remember also how he went out of his way to impeach poor Judge Corona whom he saw as an enemy. His views and treatment of his opponents look less like the actions and decisions of a statesman and looks more like the annoying tantrums of a spoiled child. Much like Hitler, many of his actions as leader of our country were done more out of an existing grudge rather than something that is done for national improvement.
Truth was, while the Jews did do their share of suspicious activities, Hitler simply took advantage of the historic mistrust the German people had for the Jews. Since he hated them anyway, he made propaganda that painted Jews as the people who were responsible for all the hardships Germany suffered at the time. He made it appear as if the Jews were people who were looking to conquer Europe and rationalized that Nazi Germany’s harsh treatment of them was simply a response to the threat they presented to the people of Germany.
Do I even need to talk about President Aquino given how much he just loves to blame other people for his own failings? What’s worse is that President Aquino was very quick to steal the achievements of his predecessors (such as former President Arroyo’s whom he hates so much) and claim that they were his own despite the fact he doesn’t even seem competent enough to handle even the most simple of political tasks such as apologizing or placating disgruntled people. At the end of the day, President Aquino just vilifies his enemies so that people may see him and the LP as the “heroes” of the country despite the fact that they are anything but.
Irresponsibility And Neglect
Many claim that Hitler was indeed evil and, with that, I have to agree. However, I don’t subscribe to the idea that Hitler was actively evil. In fact, from my own point of view, he was evil in the sense that he was neglectful towards the morality of his actions. For instance, while the man himself never visited the concentration camps where the “undesirables” of conquered territories, he was more than willing to allow the more brutal and inhumane personnel in his regime do all the depraved butchery that they could.
President Aquino is pretty much the same with his brand of selective justice and apparent disdain for people he doesn’t know personally. Sure, the man may seem like an incompetent lout and not apparently actively malicious, he nonetheless allows for terrible atrocities to take place either of his own gain or simply because he doesn’t care. Take how he just left the SAF 44 to die miserably at the hands of terrorists and how largely indifferent to the plight of starving farmers who were shot to death.
So there, next time the LP wants to call anyone “Hitler” or “Nazis”, they should first look at their dear leader and themselves!
I HAVE RETURNED TO LAY WASTE TO OUR ENEMIES!

Evil is relative. Ask those who wept at his speeches and they’d tell you he was an angel. Sort of what this guy said:
Well said Grimwald, it is apparent that Penoy and his attack dogs vilify his political enemies as if he is “holier than thou”. The sad thing about the Yellows is that they seem not to read their History books so they brand people they disdain with such epithets. I remember an old saying that said if you point a finger towards another three more fingers point back at you. No wonder Penoy’s tags that besmirch his political and perhaps personal opponents backfired at him.
An interesting article, which is, however, dominated by ignorance of the time of Adolf Hitler. compare Aquino with Hitler can only someone who has the – does not know historical background – true. But that was forgiven.
The term “NAZI” is a ridiculous and of stupid expression, coined by an American rootless clique of “financial aristocracy”. An insult the American “winners” against national and social German people. As for the war, so you should, before you write, listen to each side. Read Above all, the documents which are now released from secret archives and represent the true warmongers and criminals against humanity showcased.
But who is interested in the truth. The arms industry and the international banks certainly not. For the benefit on murder and manslaughter and driving nations to war.
It is also wrong in your article, the statement about the “Semites”.
The Bible carries the lineage of Abraham from Shem, son of Noah, back. Based on this, one called in Bible times all peoples of the Middle East, who considered themselves descendants of Abraham, as “sons of Shem”.
Accordingly, among the Semites the Amhara, Tigrinya, Arabs, Hyksos, Maltese, Minaeans, Sabeans, Amorites, Ammonites, Akkadians / Babylonians / Assyrians / Aramaeans, Hebrews, Canaanites, Moabites, Nabateans, Phoenicians and Samaritans.
Semites are thus the peoples in the Arab region.
Incidentally, Hitler was a half-Jew. His hatred was directed against the Zionists of Federal Systems. Just opposite the which in 1932 proclaimed all-out war against Germany.
But now to your ex – president.
Aquino is only be described as guardian and promoter of State crime, in the form of perfected looting of their own people and foreigners.
He has his corrupt “officials” in BI and DOJ, his greedy criminal senators and other servants, all the ways of corruption kept open.
This has the Philippines introduced the reputation of a banana republic.
Investors and businessmen shun your land. Tourists rather travel to Thailand, Vietnam, Laos or China because there is no security in the Philippines.
Let us recall the “Pork barrel” scandal and the involved criminal politicians.
Or to the typhoon “Haiyan” and its consequences. Specifically, I mean the stolen funds and relief supplies. Who has all enriched at the plight of the victims? The same political cadaver as the Pork barrel – scandal.
There is too much what one could name.
The bottom line is -Aquino is unworthy.
But you have one consolation. Duderte gives your country a chance of this, damage done by his predecessors misery to come out.
Actually, I was just giving the guy a taste of his own medicine because he likes to compare his enemies and the people he doesn’t like to Nazis…
Ah I understand.
But for Aquinas there is no real comparison. He is or has been only one, his own people marauding criminal political puppet. A Selfish.
In no country in the world, and I was in very many countries, I have such an open corruption authorities experienced as in the Philippines. Aquino has inflicted huge damage euerm country. He and his corrupt subordinates, especially in BI and the DOJ is a quite considerable damage in the economic field, as has been added in view of your country.
To my knowledge, currently is a list of corrupt Aquino officials, compiled in BI, DOJ and courts and certainly soon be released.
We know very well the way the looting of foreign business people through the system of BI and DOJ. And we know the small and large fish swimming in the waters of corruption.
This has among other things contributed to the Philippines have the reputation of a banana republic. Thanks Aquino.
On the subject of corruption, human rights in relation to Siegfred B. Mison, Leila De Lima and some more I had in the past active correspondence with the “Office often he President”, the “Presidential Action Center”, Malacanang Manila.
This topic is now more relevant than ever. I want to hope that all the filth of Aquino and Co. are worked. Then your country has a good chance for the future.
One was a dictator; the other is a dick-tator.
Thanks for sharing your article. Now that the yellow guys are on their way out, what happens to all the cases? Let’s not forget the die hard supporters of the Aquino administration who had silently gotten into messy situations. Here’s one example http://manilastandardtoday.com/opinion/columns/lowdown-by-jojo-robles/184303/raising-funds-at-dnd-1-.html
Too bad there was never a follow up on this news item. Let’s just hope that the people mentioned in the news article don’t show up in the coming administration. Let’s all be vigilant.
What are you doing comparing the two?
You are seriously insulting Adolf!
GRP will surely miss grilling and roasting and frying the poor fella. Last chance guys.
Thank you Mr. President for being such a good sport and not closing GRP down. It will be our pleasure to escort you to the Exit door of Malaca?ang (hmmm… we may need that Valenzuelan Smartmatic guy to fix the script here as well)
Good thing your mother did not allow for re-election in her Yellow constitution. She probably foresaw that that affection-deprived apathetic hatred-filled son of a bitch of hers would become president someday. Really pays to put safeguards along the way – you can never tell.
OK who’s next… will it be “Heil LENIn?”
You just gave me a wonderful idea!
Suddenly I just came up with a spin-off idea myself:
a meme depicting mama Cory pulling little NoyNoy by the ear and shouting “You worthless Son of a Bitch! Palpak na naman… Putang Ina Mo! x#@?&*…”
and Kris giggling on the sidelines with inner thoughts “hhhmmmm Puta?, good idea. Balang araw… I’ll do you proud mama.”
And on top, the title: “The Philippine Royal Family – Humble Beginnings”
… or the HOLY CORY calling her son pu?eta!!! hehehe
Aquino is a stupid fellow. Mar Roxas is a stupid fellow. Porky Drilon is a stupid fellow. The Liberal Party are bunches of thiefs and crooks.
Adolf Hitler, was born in Austria. His family are Roman Catholics. He tried to enter, the School of Arts, but , was denied. He wanted to become an artist painter.
He then, earned his living selling his paintings to tourists. After not making enough for a living; he migrated to Bavaria, Germany. He was drafted in the German Army in World War I. He won an Iron Cross.
He was discharge , with some mental issues. Then, he joined the National Socialist Party or the NAZIs. He found his leadership talent. He made good speeches; and became its head by a coup d’ etat in the Party(they call this: the night of the long knives)…the rest was history.
Aquino is vindictive. The Aquinos have the tendencies to be vindictive to their political enemies.
Hitler blamed the Jews, because, the Jews, like the Filipino Chinese in our country, monopolized the businesses in prewar Germany.
Aquino is irresponsible and neglectful. His term as President showed, his dismal performance, as a President. Full of widespread corruption; full of massacres and killings…selective justice…patronage politics…virtual dictatorship!
Well said good sir
“Many claim that Hitler was indeed evil and, with that, I have to agree. However, I don’t subscribe to the idea that Hitler was actively evil.”
Really? He had nothing to do with mass murder of Jews? or do you deny the holocaust happened?
That said, Pnoy will leave on June 30 which is much better than your favorite President MArcos who had to be kicked out after 20 years. A Hitler-like Aquino would have hunted down his numerous critics. Instead of trying for peace, he would be committing genocide in Mindanao. He would be trying to hold on to his power. But no, he will go soon.
You misunderstand. Of course, he was involved in the Holocaust.
What I mean by “not actively involved” was that his approach was more “off-hand” rather than direct. He didn’t do the killing himself but was still responsible for the death and destruction that took place.
I would best compare what happened to siccing your pet big dog on a hapless bystander. You don’t do the killing yourself but you’re still hurting them by allowing others to hurt them directly.
While I believe it’s lazy and inaccurate to compare anyone (including Trump) to Hitler, it’s nice to see a disastrous president have his taste of his own medicine.
Thank you for taking the time to understand my point…
I am afraid that the similarities of Nazi Germany’s leader Adolf Hitler and Aquino is their questioned lack of manly virilities.
It is rumored that Hitler had a malformed and small sex organ. That he cannot perform well in sex. He married , his mistress: Eva Braun, in his underground bunker, during his last days. However, close friends, never had seen that, there were valid evidences of sexual encounters between, Hitler and Eva..
I fear that Aquino has the same sexual problem , also…However, I believe Aquino is more of a closet homosexual…
There are but few important events in the affairs of men brought about by their own choice.
