Someone comparing Hitler to the EU went down as well as you’d expect – 7 brutal takedowns
Alexander Pope said “A little learning is a dangerous thing.” and that is demonstrated daily on the internet, where people with the tiniest amount of learning possible make grand, completely ridiculous, statements. One perfect example of this is a claim by former athlete and current purveyor of right-wing nonsense, Jack Crosby.
I’ve studied Nazi Germany in great detail and know as a matter of fact Hitlers plans for Europe are that of the EU’s current plans.
What makes it even more dangerous is the EU is now wanting to establish its on army. Scary to say the least https://t.co/1t6bHx5Ktn

"I’ve studied Nazi Germany in great detail.." I doubt it. The notion that a pan-European respectful consensus based on a humanistic tradition is anything like the genocidal, perverted Darwinism of the Nazis would indicate you were reading war comics.

I studied Mars in some depth and I know for a fact that the Martians intend to take over. The war of the world is real. Don’t let them say otherwise.

Guardian writer Jon Henley summed up the situation succinctly.
You may have been a good athlete Jack but you're a truly terrible historian. This is demonstrably bollocks.
