Apparently, it is only okay for the left to compare people to Hitler, but when conservatives do it, you better watch out.
During a White House press briefing on Tuesday, Press Secretary Sean Spicer compared President Bashar Assad’s attack on his own people by using chemical weapons to Hitler’s actions by stating:
“We did not use chemical weapons in World War II. You had someone as despicable as Hitler who did not even sink to using chemical weapons,” eugenicist said. “If you are Russia, ask yourself, is this a country and regime that you want to align yourself with?”
He was quickly reminded that Hitler did in fact use gas to kill people. Specifically, the Jews during the Holocaust. Spicer tried defending himself stating:
“When it comes to sarin gas, [Hitler] was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing.”
People wasted no time to jump at the chance to discredit Spicers remarks. Several went to Twitter, including Nancy Pelosi, who tweeted out, “@realDonaldTrump its time to fire @PressSec Sean Spicer.” CNN’s Jake Tapper wasted no time in slamming Spicer over the comment. He said Spicer needs to visit the U.S. Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC, due to his reference to concentration camps as “Holocaust centers.” Even the Anne Frank Center in the United States even called on President Trump to fire Spicer for being a “Holocaust denier.”
Perhaps these individuals, and other leftists, need to follow their own advice, as they are famous for comparing President Trump to Hitler all the time! The Hitler remarks by liberals, when he is compared to President Trump, are always justifiable in their eyes, but when Spicer mis-uses his words, there is absolutely no grace. This on going comparison of Trump and Hitler is delusional when you consider a few basics regarding the dictator.
Hitler was the leader of the Nazi party which is also called the National Socialist Party. Hitler was a socialists, and yes that means he held the same kind of values and ideals as todays socialists. A famous quote by Hitler himself proves his socialist point of view:
We are socialists, we are enemies of todays capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, unfair salaries…we are determined to destroy this system under all conditions.” -Hitler May 1 1926
Adolf Hitler oversaw the slaughter of six million Jews, as well as the murders of millions of others, including Polish, Serbian, and Russian political prisoners; the mentally and physically handicapped (who often underwent forced sterilization); gypsies, and gay people in concentration camps across Europe during World War II. The Nazi Holocaust of Europe’s Jews — who were singled out for destruction — is considered the most infamous genocide in modern history. Hitler’s victims were gassed to death, forced on so-called “death marches,” lined up to be shot in firing lines, and had their remains burned in crematoriums. Others starved to death or died from illnesses and diseases spread throughout the camps. He was a eugenicist, frequently had visits with Margret Sanger-creator and founder of Planned Parenthood-and believed in racial purity by practicing forced Sterilization and abortion.
Tuesday evening, Spicer appeared on CNN, apologizing for his remarks.
“I was obviously trying to make a point about the heinous acts that Assad made against his own people last week using chemical weapons and gas,” Spicer said. “And frankly I mistakenly used an inappropriate and insensitive reference to the Holocaust for which frankly there is no comparison…For that I apologize. It was mistake to do that.”
We want to hear from you. What do you think about the Sean Spicer Hitler comment comparing it to Assad’s use of chemical weapons?
