Pope Francis has often times found himself at odds with Donald Trump.
He attacked Trump before the South Carolina primary as not being Christian because of his proposal to build a border wall to stop illegal immigration.
And the Pope just recently gave an interview where he made an unsettling comparison of Donald Trump.
Leftists love to compare Donald Trump to Adolph Hitler.
Pope Francis – whom rush Limbaugh has described as a Marxist – joined the parade.
In an interview with El Pais – Spain’s leading leftist newspaper – the left-wing Pope likened Donald Trump’s populism to that of Hitler.
“In Friday’s lengthy interview with El País, Pope Francis was also asked whether he was concerned about the spread of a populism throughout the world that capitalizes on “people’s fears,” preaching “a message of hate.”
Francis distinguished between a good, grassroots populism, where it is the people who are “the protagonists,” and a cult of personality where a charismatic figure like Hitler rises to power and is welcomed as a savior figure.
The latter can be very dangerous, he said.
The risk, Francis said, is that in times of crisis we lack judgment and people can begin to think, “Let’s look for a savior who gives us back our identity and let’s defend ourselves with walls, barbed-wire, whatever, from other people that may rob us of our identity.”
“And that is a very serious thing,” he said. “That is why I always try to say: talk among yourselves, talk to one another.”
Pope Francis’ remarks were jarring because earlier in the interview he stated there should be no rush to judge Trump.
Breitbart also reports:
“The Pope said that the new President deserved to be judged by his actions, not by “prophecies” of what he may or may not do.
“I think that we must wait and see,” Francis said. “I don’t like to get ahead of myself nor judge people prematurely. We will see how he acts, what he does, and then I will have an opinion.”
The Pope said it is “most unwise” to be afraid of something that might happen. “It would be like prophets predicting calamities or windfalls that don’t take place. We will see. We will see what he does and then evaluate,” he said. “I prefer to wait and see.”
The interviewer, Antonio Caño, pressed the Pope further, asking whether he wasn’t “worried about the things you have heard up until now.”
“I’m waiting. God waited a long time for me, with all my sins…” Francis replied.”
Francis was clearly rushing to judge Trump.
While he didn’t mention him directly by name in his comparison to Hitler, his remarks were clearly about Trump, as he once again commented on the idea of building walls.
And these remarks continue to show the left-wing activism of the Pope which many have found divisive.
