I feel like we're in slippery slope territory.  I didn't think GW Bush was great, but I thought people calling him Hitler was absolutely ridiculous, and him getting personally blamed for 9/11 was also ridiculous. 

I don't think Trump is Hitler either.  Some do.  But we are clearly getting more divisive, it seems like a downward trend.  Right to be wrong, or a culture change or large unifying event might reverse this.

Two huge events ?

9/11 and the Lehman Bros crash.  Very divided country as a result of it.
