WWE Legend Mick Foley has asked his “fellow white males” to not vote for Donald Trump today.

Writing via Facebook, the hardcore icon said: “Please, white American males, don’t cast that vote for Donald Trump tomorrow – at least not until you do one simple thing for me. In order to be able to look at myself in the mirror on November 9th when we all wake up to a new President-elect, I have to know that I tried to do SOMETHING, to prevent this particular WWE Hall of Famer from attaining the highest office in the land.”

Foley goes on to discuss his fears for a second coming of Kristallnacht, or a similar event, should Trump gain power.

“Please Google ‘Kristallnacht’ and just read about it for a few minutes,” says Foley.

Kristallnacht (The Night of Broken Glass) took place in Nazi Germany on November 9-10, 1938. Basically, it was a riot orchestrated by the Sturmabteilung (SA paramilitary) and German citizens to destroy Jewish buildings – homes, hospitals, schools. It’s estimated hundreds of Jewish people were killed during the riot, and around 30,000 were rounded up and sent to detention camps. The German government at the time did nothing to quell the unrest.

“If you arrive at the conclusion that this could never happen in the United States under a President Trump, then by all means do what I think you’re thinking of doing,”

Foley continues. “But I have had that word, ‘kristallnacht’ eating at me, gnawing at me, haunting me for months, for I see in Donald Trump the same scapegoating of minorities, the same intolerance of an entire religion that helped create the toxic atmosphere that allowed kristallnacht (the night of broken glass) to become part of history.”

Foley notes the comparison he’s making isn’t to paint Trump as the second coming of Adolf Hitler, but to elucidate how he doesn’t want America to repeat the mistakes made by other countries in the past.

“Those who don’t learn history are condemned to repeat its mistakes. Please don’t give a man like Trump – who has admitted to having little interest in history, admitted to not respecting many people because he simply doesn’t believe most people are worthy of respect – the chance to repeat any of the mistakes that history would surely have taught a less narcissistic, more caring and compassionate man than Donald Trump.”
