Rep. Mary Miller (R-Illinois) was just sworn in, and already she's having to issue an apology — for saying that “Hitler was right.”
The (you'll-be-surprised-to-learn) blonde, blue-eyed right-winger spoke Tuesday at a Moms for America Saving the Republic (from what?) rally, advocating for overturning the 2020 election results. In the presidential race only, natch.
Hitler was right on one thing, that whoever has the youth has the future. Our children are being propagandized.
Pssst: In her example, Democrats are Hitler.
Miller's apology is super defensive, including this passage:
While some are trying to intentionally twist my words to mean something antithetical to my beliefs, let me be clear: I'm passionately pro-Israel and I will always be a strong advocate and ally of the Jewish community.
Sure, we're twisting your words. Let me check again, what were they? Oh, yeah: “HITLER WAS RIGHT.”
The first time I heard that phrase, growing up in Michigan, I was 16 and a stockboy at a department store. A fellow stockboy, Rob, told me, “Hitler was right — he just didn't go far enough. He should also have exterminated the gays.”
“He did exterminate the gays, numb-skull,” I told him, closeted still.
Apology not accepted, Mare.
