Nazi Propaganda and Censorship

"Once they succeeded in ending democracy and turning Germany into a one-party dictatorship, the Nazis orchestrated a massive propaganda campaign to win the loyalty and cooperation of Germans. The Nazi Propaganda Ministry, directed by Dr. Joseph Goebbels, took control of all forms of communication in Germany: newspapers, magazines, books, public meetings, and rallies, art, music, movies, and radio. Viewpoints in any way threatening to Nazi beliefs or to the regime were censored or eliminated from all media."

Reminds me of what DJT and the Republican Party are trying to do in the United States...

He has already trained his fans who now comment: Fake news.  Seems alternative facts are fine but actual, true, factual news must be fake. Sad state of affairs.
