The anti-Semitic left continue to minimize the Holocaust for political purposes. They continue to falsely compare President Trump (the most pro-Jewish POTUS ever) to Hitler and the Nazis. Why aren’t America’s Jewish organizations attacking Clyburn for his vile and repugnant statements?
James Clyburn compares Trump to Hitler: ‘That’s what we are teetering on here’
By Daily Wire, November 11, 2020
Mr. Clyburn, South Carolina Democrat, made the comments to CNN’s Chris Cuomo while discussing the constitutional possibility of “faithless electors,” in today’s case Republican electors, casting electoral votes on Dec. 14 for Mr. Trump even if he lost the popular vote in their state. Thirty-three states have laws requiring electors to vote as pledged, but battleground states Pennsylvania and Georgia do not.
“I know you guys are standing by and watching and hoping for the best, but hopefully you’re preparing for the worst as well,” Mr. Cuomo told the congressman. “What if they go to the state legislatures, and say, ‘Forget about the vote. We don’t trust it, right? Pick your own electors.’ State legislatures can do that in a bunch of the states.”
“Yes, they can do that,” Mr. Clyburn responded. “But I don’t think they can do that to the tune of 270. There is no question about that. Some of them may accommodate them.”
“I really don’t think that’s going to be a problem in Pennsylvania,” he continued. “They may attempt to do that in Pennsylvania, but the Constitution is clear. And I know it gives the legislatures the authority, to elect electors, as they would have them be. But look, if you got all the electors, I don’t believe you’re going to go to Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, and get them to elect Republican electors, when the Democrat won. I just don’t think you’re going to have that.”
Mr. Clyburn then went into a comparison about Nazi Germany and how Mr. Trump would essentially be declared dictator if the faithless electors somehow swayed the election outcome.
“It may happen,” he said. “And then I’ve been telling people for a long time now, I’m beginning to see what happened in Germany back in the 1930s. I never thought that could happen in this country. How do you elect a person president then all of a sudden give him the authority to be dictator? That’s what we are teetering on here.
“That’s what Hitler did in Germany,” he added. “He was elected Chancellor. And then, because he successfully discredited the news media, took over the churches. I cannot see that happening here. It may happen. But if it did that means that the American people are much more — less, I should say, intelligent than I think they are.”
It’s not the first time Mr. Clyburn has compared Mr. Trump to a dictator. In August, he cited Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini when he said, “I don’t think [Mr. Trump] plans to leave the White House. He doesn’t plan to have fair and unfettered elections. I believe that he plans to install himself in some kind of emergency way to continue hold onto office.
