(Liberty Bell) – There is nothing too low for the Democrats.
Even as our president boldly leads us through one of the biggest crises our nation has faced since 9/11, they’re not above bashing him in the most appalling way.
Are we going to stand for this now, of all times? And from one of the top Democrats in Washington DC?
This is truly shameful.
House Majority Whip Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC), one of the most prominent Democrats in the party, declared that Trump could turn our country into 1930’s Germany because he’s (say it with me now) a racist.
Clyburn told Axios on HBO on Sunday that Trump could make our country “go the way of Germany in the 1930s.”
The interview was published by Axios on Sunday, which read:
Rep. James Clyburn, the top-ranking African American in American politics, told “Axios on HBO” that President Trump is a racist who hired white supremacists, warning America “could very well go the way of Germany in the 1930s.”
Why it matters: Clyburn is a force in Democratic politics widely credited for resurrecting Joe Biden’s campaign with his South Carolina primary endorsement. He warned in great detail of what he sees as troubling parallels between America today and Nazi Germany.
“I used to wonder how could the people of Germany allow Hitler to exist. But with each passing day, I’m beginning to understand how. And that’s why I’m trying to sound the alarm.”
Clyburn compared Republicans’ coalescing around Trump to Nazis supporting Hitler amid his rise to power. He argued that falsehoods in Trump’s State of the Union address showcased the issue.
On February 4th during Trump’s State of the Union address he discussed the impending coronavirus threat, which wasn’t very well-known among Americans at that point.
As you probably will recall, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripped up the president’s speech when he was finished.
Clyburn compared Trump to Adolf Hitler, although he tried to clarify that he was not comparing Republicans to Nazis, only the “dynamics” through which the Germans allowed Hitler to rise to power.
He also declared that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was the “poster child” of someone who sacrifices principles for power.
