Madrid (AFP) - Pope Francis warned against populism, saying it could lead to the election of "saviours" like Hitler.

In an hour-long interview with Spanish newspaper El Pais conducted as Donald Trump was being sworn in as US president, the pontiff also condemned the idea of using walls and barbed wire to keep out foreigners.

"Of course crises provoke fears and worries," he said but added that for him "the example of populism in the European sense of the word is Germany in 1933.

"Germany... was looking for a leader, someone who would give her back her identity and there was a little man named Adolf Hitler who said 'I can do it'."

"Hitler did not steal power," the pope said. "He was elected by his people and then he destroyed his people."

The Germans at that time also wanted to protect themselves with "walls and barbed wire so that others cannot take away their identity," he said.

"The case of Germany is classic," he said, adding that Hitler gave them a "deformed identity and we know what it produced."

Pope Francis however underscored that it was too early to pass judgement on Trump.

"Let's see. Let's see what he does and then we will evaluate," he said.

I would think that we have strong enough people in our military and congress to not let the above happen.



Interesting. The Pope is speaking out against nationalism. For 37 years I have followed the globalist movement. This makes me a conspiracy nut. The western international banking conglomerate, headquartered in London and New York, and perhaps Brussels and Geneva, aims to convert the Earth into a world governed by a central government that they will control.

With the EU pulling apart a bit and the U.S. saying it will put America first and question trade agreements, the bankers may need to foment a big war to bring the nations back into their plan.

There you have the (late) Teo in me....



Sometimes it really hits you. It's a damn shame we don't have Neko and Teo and Bob and... They each had such vibrant personalities... you could almost see them when they expressed their opinions.



The Pope didn't even have to watch, he felt the vibes when Lucifer Trump placed his claw on the Bible.


First thing is get the people to distrust the media, our savior is doing a good job of that.
