Democratic Congressman compares Trump to Hitler then says he didn’t
Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson repeatedly compares President Trump to Hitler then says he didn’t.
When are Democrats going to be held accountable for ridiculous allegations comparing President Trump to dictators that killed millions and saying they are going to impeach the MFer like Rashida Tlaib.
Johnson made his comments at an event sponsored by the Atlanta NAACP to mark the 156th anniversary of the implementation of the Emancipation Proclamation. “Americans elected an authoritarian, racist, anti-immigrant strongman to the nation’s highest office,” he also said at Friendship Baptist Church, according to Roll Call. “Americans, particularly black Americans, can’t afford to make that same mistake about the harm that could be done by a man named Hitler or a man named Trump.”
Johnson also referred to the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017 in which a counterprotester was killed and anti-Semitic chants were heard. Trump in response said that “I think there is blame on both sides … But you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides.”
The president was roundly criticized for the statement. “Hitler was accepting of violence towards the achievement of political objectives,” Johnson said. “Trump encouraged violence against protesters at his rallies, and his messaging about Charlottesville — that there were bad people on both sides — sent a powerful message of approval to the far-right racists in America.”
On Thursday Johnson tried to say he did not compare Trump to Hitler then doubled down on the comments. “What I did was compare the times that we live in to the times that existed at the time Hitler gained power. I mentioned the fact that he gained power through democratic elections the same way Trump did. He castigated Jewish people, Polish people, Hungarians — anyone who he could scapegoat. It is clear that the liberalism is a mental disorder.
The Congressional Democrats have lost their collective minds. From Hank Johnson comparing Trump to Hitler to Rashida Tlaib telling her young son “were going to impeach the MFer.” There is a total lack of class in the Democrat party and now it is being displayed for all to see.
