Just to give you some background knowledge on the phrase “America first”, it became highly popular in the 1940’s, when America was on the brink of going to war with Nazi Germany. The phrase was used by the America First Committee, in order to advocate for this idea that the United States should not stick its nose in the conflicts of other nations and that we as a country should not be so interventionist, especially considering the country was coming out of the worst depression in economic history. The problem though, was that many people saw this as being on the side of the Nazis, and the group and the phrase were seen by the public as Nazi-Sympathizers. So in 1941, the America First Committee was disbanded, for obvious reasons. So what is wrong with Donald Drumpf using the phrase? Actually just about everything imaginable. Not only is a major presidential candidate running in an election for the most powerful position in the world coming off as someone who likes the idea of fascism, and who appreciates a good Nazi phrase, but by saying this, and digging deeper into HIS meaning behind it, he essentially wants to destroy all of the foreign work the United States has managed to accompli...

...hey present themselves in public and while speaking, Secretary Clinton is always much more careful about what she says and makes sure that everything is perfectly correct in what she says; whereas Mr. Drumpf almost just flat out does not conform to social or rhetorical norms or rules. This man will just say whatever is on his mind, regardless of what others may think, and does not care about if his rhetoric is correct or not. Not only that though, but the college textbook, The Pocket Style Manual by Diana Hacker and Nancy Sommers, does a solid job of analyzing the rhetoric of the election cycle and the candidates in it. Specifically, this textbook would be able to analyze the grammar and sentence structure of the speeches of Donald Drumpf, considering the fact that a lot of his sentences do not seem like the most grammatically correct, much less complete sentences.

- What is true, and can be said about Catholic resistance to Nazi Germany was that there was not nearly enough action taken on behalf Catholic Church. However that is not to say there was none at all. The irrelevancy of that Catholic ministry experienced during the Kulturkampf and the its Anti-sematic past undoubtedly drove Catholic Officials to support the rise of the Nazis. What proceeded then was a proportionally small front against Nazism. While it would be much simpler to blame Catholicism for not doing enough and denote a few exceptions of heroic figures and relegating the rest as villains this would be an error of judgement....

- It is a pretty fair point to say that the rhetoric of this election cycle has been way off the charts compared to every other election in American history (maybe even world history). That is all thanks to a man we all know and love, Donald J. Drumpf. Mr. Drumpf has said a lot of nasty words and sentences for the past year, but the one that has really stuck out was his phrase “America first”.
