Former Mexican President Vicente Fox says former Mexican President Felipe Calderón reminds him of Adolf Hitler

Ex-Mexican President Fox: "Donald Trump reminds me of Hitler":

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox on Friday kept up his withering criticism of Donald Trump, saying the GOP front-runner reminds him of Adolf Hitler.

"Today, he's going to take that nation (U.S.) back to the old days of conflict, war and everything. I mean, he reminds me of Hitler. That's the way he started speaking," Fox told CNN's Anderson Cooper in a phone interview on "Anderson Cooper 360."

"He has offended Mexico, Mexicans, (and) immigrants. He has offended the Pope. He has offended the Chinese. He's offended everybody."

Fox's comments come one day after he delivered a scathing response on Trump's plan to make Mexico pay for a wall between the Mexico-U.S. border.

"I'm not going to pay for that f***ing wall," Fox said in an interview with Fusion's Jorge Ramos.

Fox told Cooper he won't apologize for that remark.

Fox isn't the first to suggest Trump's rhetoric is similar to that of the German dictator.

Last month, Anne Frank's stepsister accused Trump of "acting like another Hitler." And in December, former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman invoked Hitler when discussing Trump's plan to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the U.S.

"If you go and look at your history and you read your history in the lead-up to the Second World War, this is the kind of rhetoric that allowed Hitler to move forward," Whitman told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on "New Day."

Former President Felipe Calderón:
“I have said that Mexico does not stop at its border, that wherever there is a Mexican, there is Mexico,” he said. “And, for this reason, the government action on behalf of our countrymen is guided by principles, for the defense and protection of their rights.”
This statement by former President Felipe Calderón evokes national socialism - e.g., the Sudetenland.

South African university buildings are burned down by students protesting: At least 3 universities shut down following student protests

South Africa’s North-West University is the latest institution to shut down indefinitely following an outbreak of violence.

At least three South African universities have been closed this week after a new wave of student protests that saw buildings torched over high tuition fees and allegations of racism.

At the North-West University’s Mafikeng campus, buildings were torched on Wednesday night, including a science centre and an administration building which held student records.

University spokesman Koos Degenaar said the trouble started after some students disrupted the inauguration of a new student council.

Defying a court order, a suspended student leader – part of a dissolved student council calling for the removal of Afrikaans as a teaching language – entered the university and addressed his supporters, the AP reports.

Private security officers reportedly tried to disperse the crowd using rubber bullets and tear gas as students threw stones at them.

President Jacob Zuma has condemned the violence saying “the burning of university buildings at a time when we are prioritising the education of our youth is inexplicable and can never be condoned.”

He added that “no amount of anger should drive students to burn their own university and deny themselves and others education. Grievances should be handled in a peaceful manner”.

Earlier this week, a protest at the University of Pretoria over the use of Afrikaans led to clashes between black and white students, also forcing the university to shut down.

University spokeswoman Anna-Retha Bouwer told the AFP “the university is currently meeting with various student bodies and stakeholders to address the issues affecting learning.”

Racial tension also flared up at the Free State University in Bloemfontein when a rugby match was interrupted earlier this week. The Free State is the heartland of Afrikaners.

Black protesters walked in a line across the pitch during the game, before hundreds of white spectators ran on and a mass brawl erupted.
