The Inaugural Address

A rough translation of portions of Hitler’s speeches (1933 to 1938) as they relate to Trump’s inaugural (and other) speeches.

To the people of our great nation…

Our foremost duty is to revive a spirit of unity and cooperation in our great nation. Our government will be better in the future than it has ever been in the past. Together, we will take on the task of reorganisation of the administrative and fiscal systems of our country. We will decrease taxes and clean the swamp in the administration. We will get the job done!

(APPLAUSE)

And while we celebrate in our nation’s capital, there is little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land. All changes start right here and right now because this moment is your moment, it belongs to you. This is your celebration. And this is your country.

(APPLAUSE)

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. The welfare of our communities must be protected. The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. You have come by the millions to become part of a historic movement, the likes of which the world has never seen.

(APPLAUSE)

A nation exists to serve its citizens. We want great schools for their children, safe neighbourhoods for their families, and good jobs for all. These are just and reasonable demands of righteous people. It can be solved only in implementing sound natural economic principles and all measures necessary, even if, at the time, they cannot expect to enjoy any degree of popularity. We must also secure our borders against those who would harm us.

(APPLAUSE)

We must use this nation of equal rights as an instrument for the securing and maintenance of peace that the world requires today more than ever before. As regards foreign policy, the national government considers its highest mission to be the securing of the right to live and the restoration of freedom to our nation and its determination to bring to an end to what is a chaotic state of affairs.

(APPLAUSE)

We will not be victims of the press. The press does not inspire its readers, but on the contrary, it panders to their lowest instincts. The press has adapted to the level of the most ignorant readers. It is this press above all that carries on a fanatical campaign of slander and strives to tear down everything that might be considered a mainstay of national independence. They are sabotaging all of our cultural values as well as to destroying the autonomy of the national economic system.

(APPLAUSE)

What we have to fight for is the necessary security for the existence of our people, the subsistence of its children and the freedom and independence of our country, so that our people may be enabled to fulfil the mission assigned to it by the Creator.

(APPLAUSE)

May we gain freedom and the trust of our people for whom we are fighting – not for ourselves but for our country. We will bring back our wealth. And we will bring back our dreams.

(APPLAUSE)

We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity. There should be no fear. We are protected and we will always be protected. by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement.

(APPLAUSE)

Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger. Money glitters, beauty sparkles and intelligence shines.

(APPLAUSE)

The time for empty talk is over. The hour of action has come. Do not allow anyone to tell you that it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of our country. We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again. We stand in the first decades of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow. A new national pride will lift our sights and heal our divisions.

(APPLAUSE)

And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl or wind-swept plains, they look up at the same night sky.

(APPLAUSE)

Thank you. God bless you. May God Almighty give our work His blessing, strengthen our purpose and endow us with wisdom and the trust of our people for we are fighting not for ourselves but for our country.

(APPLAUSE)
