The Jewish Democratic Council for America compared the United States under President Trump to Germany under Adolf Hitler in the 1930s in a new ad targeting Jewish voters in swing states.

The ad features a split-screen of images from 1930s Germany, with Hitler supporters waving Nazi flags, and photos from Trump rallies and white supremacy gatherings.

“History shows us what happens when leaders use hatred and nationalism to divide their people,” the narrator says. “As anti-Semitism and white nationalism rise to dangerous levels in America, we are all less secure.”

“It is time to show that we’ve learned from the darkest moments in history,” the narrator continues.  “Hate doesn’t stop itself, it must be stopped. Vote. Our future depends on it.”

The 30-second ad will target Jewish voters in Florida, Michigan and Pennsylvania, “with the goal of ensuring they see the ad multiple times between now and the election.”

“A majority of American Jews feel less safe today than they did four years ago due to the rise of white nationalism and anti-Semitism under Donald Trump,” JDCA executive director Haile Soifer said in a statement. “This, coupled with Trump’s assault on our democratic institutions, are reminiscent of the rise of fascism in 1930s Germany.”

“President Trump’s use of hatred for political purposes has made America less safe for Jews and we are voting accordingly,” Soifer continued.
