Her “hot” body, “army of skanks”, and Aaron Samuels were the key to her dictatorial status at North Shore. Both Regina George and Adolf Hitler share the unique qualities of being a dictator.

Hitler brainwashed much of the German population to believe Aryan’s to be perfect, and all others to be inferior. He not only made Aryan’s sound like the superior race, but Hitler also influenced much of Germany to wish to resemble Aryan people.

Regina, the queen of the school, practically invented and persuaded what the ideal girl was to look like. Much like Hitler, Regina’s image was based on good looks, opulent style, and utter popularity.
