New York Times uses Book Review Section to tie Trump to Hitler by Cheryl Chumley

The New York Times, in its end-of-year review of the best books of 2016, suggested a tome about Adolf Hitler’s rise to power – a recommendation that on surface, would seem no big deal, save for the inclusion of one curious word: “timely.”

What exactly is so timely about a book on Hitler?

Donald Trump

PEOTUS Donald J. Trump

Here’s a thought: It’s post-Donald Trump win of the White House, and those on the left see the billionaire businessman as little more than an American Hitler.

Has the left not learned a thing from Trump’s win?

Mediaite’s Lindsey Ellefson picked up on the odd phrasing, which read in the New York Times: “Hitler: Ascent 1889-1939. By Volker Ullrich. Translated by Jefferson Chase. (Knopf, $40.) The first volume of a timely new biography focuses on Hitler the man, seeing him as a consummate tactician and an actor aware of his audience.”

Ellefson then wrote, in Mediaite:

“A book about Adolf Hitler‘s rise to power made the list, which is unsurprising. People love a good history lesson. But one word is slipped in the blurb that makes this especially interesting. What, exactly, is ‘timely’ about a genocidal, bigoted dictator’s rise to power…?

“A book about Adolf Hitler‘s rise to power made the list, which is unsurprising. People love a good history lesson. But one word is slipped in the blurb that makes this especially interesting. What, exactly, is “timely” about a genocidal, bigoted dictator’s rise to power…?

“Wait, it isn’t a reference to the election of Donald Trump, is it?”

Ellefson then goes on to cite the alt-right’s support of Trump – though Trump neither sought nor welcomed such endorsements.

Regardless, the larger story is this: The media is not honest. And the left-leaning media will use every trick at its disposal – even using something as tame as its book review section – to discredit Trump’s presidency, even before it starts.
