Democrat Florida Agriculture Commissioner Compared Gov. Ron DeSantis to Hitler
A Democrat Agriculture Commissioner compared Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to Adolf Hitler amid the governor election race.
The Gateway Pundit said that corrupt Florida Dem. Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried compared DeSantis to Hitler “out of pure desperation.”
Fried made his weird comparison during an interview with WLRN’s “The Florida Round-Up,” according to The Floridian Press.
“I’m a student of history too, I saw the rise of Hitler. I’ve learned of those stories. I have studied Hitler and how he got t0 power you know, wanting his own militia and having his own militia,” Fried said.
The Floridian Press writes, that Commissioner Fried says Gov. DeSantis “is only trying to instill fear in Floridians, and is even blaming for any woes that the state currently faces, saying that ‘blaming certain parts of our society and our culture and that’s exactly what Hitler did to the Jews back you know during World War II.’”
“Do I think that we’re going to get to this extent of Hitler’s power, of course not, but the rise of his power and what he did to scapegoat certain parts and especially the Jewish community in Germany and how he utilized taking going after the media going after, and scapegoating people and blaming people and putting fear and then taking over the military, that’s what this governor is doing,” concluded Fried.
