I cannot get the day that we discussed his speech in class out of my mind.
I thought yes! This guy had some amazing speeches working on his side. The confidence, and hope he provided for a lost and struggling nation was astounding. He not only addressed all the poeple’s grievances but gave them solutions. Of course he was wanted power and judging by his speech he knew what to do to get it.
Of course, he was terrible for what he did once he gained the power and no one should be excused for the crimes he committed.
In class, hearig Rebecca get rowdy about this speach and the rediculousness of the man behind it; I couldn’t help but think Hitler is still influential. He wanted to evoke emotion through his speech and yes, although he wanted positive followers rather than hotile oppoents, he has won. He brought about those emotions in Rebecca and influenced her outbursts (although they were negative).
The point is Hitler was on a mission, he wasn’t worried if random people didn’t like him because he had the support of the nation. I believe he has gotten what he wants and more. He has become immortal. Hitler will never truly die until he is forgotten… but how when history is staring us in the face. He has yet to stop stirring up emotions whether it be in Rebecca as hatred or a man with a Swastika tattoo supporting white supremecy and idolizig Hitler.
