COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE INDEPENDENT

Lotteries, sausages and manipulation: Vladimir Putin and his team look to fight his only election rival – low turnout
With the Russian president expected to be re-elected handsomely, the Kremlin wants a final result that projects globally

Response to a comment saying Hitler enjoyed massive support from people:

Really ignorant.

You don’t know what you are talking about.

Hitler’s party reached the zenith of its vote-getting at about 37%.

He never had a victory.

He never had a minority.

He certainly never had a majority.

He was appointed Chancellor by a desperate, aged President von Hindenburg during times of great stress and turmoil in the streets.

After that, there was effectively a coup, quickly-written new laws, and a dictatorship.

“Votes” taken after the Nazis were in power are meaningless, just as voting under Stalin was meaningless.

Our world is not made better by promoting ignorance, as you do.
