Do republicans consider The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich by William Shirer 'Fake News'?

How about respected historians laying down the parallels between Donald J. Trump and Adolf Hitler.  

Trump publicly admitted to being obsessed with Hitler's speeches, promoted ultranationalism, showed disdain for human rights, labeled minorities & journalists as enemies to unify his cause, gave $454,000,000 surplus in Military equipment for local police, advocated rampant sexism, was obsessed with national security, combined evangelism and government, spent $500 billion dollar bailing out corporations and banks, dismantled labor rights, showed disdain for intellectuals & the arts, was obsessed with crime & punishment, told his entirely white rally they had good genes, tweeted Henry Ford known antisemitic had the perfect bloodline, labeled neo-nazis 'very fine people' and told them to 'Stand Back and Stand By', sent unidentified secret police to Portland, showcased rampant cronyism and now proven corruption and hired known white supremacists including Ian M. Smith, Darren Beattie, Jeff Sessions, Lee Cissna, Thomas Homan, Charles Kupperman, Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, James McHenry III, John Zadrozny and Stephen Miller.

This is why The Wave by Todd Strasser should be required reading.

Update:

Lets not forget Donald J. Trump has a long recorded history of praising fascist dictators like Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, Bashar al-Assad, Jair Bolsonaro, Kim Jong-un, Mohammed Bin Salman Al Saud, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Rodrigo Duterte, Viktor Orbán, Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping. Even before becoming President of The United States of America Donald J. Trump had publicly praised fascist dictators Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini and Saddam Hussein.

    They've never heard of Shirer or the book. Given the thickness of the book, they wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole. Too many facts for them to digest. Republicans want their "facts" and opinions given to them in small doses. That's why Trump appeals so much to them; he's light with truth, and heavy with bigotry.

    I just finished reading that book, and was amazed at the number of parallels between Trump and his supporters, and Hitler and his Nazis.

    You can draw far more parallels to what is happening now with Democrats and the Third Reich... Democrats are trying to censure speech, Hitler did that...  Democrats are trying to take guns, Hitler did that... Democrats want to send Trump Supporters to "re-education camps", Hitler did that... These are all historical facts that cannot be denied... Trump did none of these things that your loving and tolerant leftists are doing right now everyday... Quit trying to accuse anyone until you look in the mirror...

    Yes, they do.  These are the same people who believe every conspiracy theory they hear (because they are too lazy to develop any critical thinking skills) and ignore facts and evidence about what's happening in the real world.  They also pollute these answers with their decomposition lies.

    The Trump fans here don't read much.  There are intellectual Republicans/conservatives, but they're the ones who've openly criticized Trump. They don't spend their time on Yahoo Answers.
