Why do some of these quotes make Kanye sound like Hitler and Hitler sound like a reasonable man…

To me as a German, it was actually pretty easy.

Expressions like "racism", "tabloids" or "conservative" (according to its commonly understood meaning today) weren't things in Germany in the 1930s.

The expression "or die trying" does have a more or less direct German translation, but it's nowhere near as frequently used as it is in English.

Finally, about number 8, it was more or less based on gut feeling, but I just thought that Hitler was way to deep in the we-them rhetoric to talk like that.
