Nikki Fried, the Democrat candidate for Florida’s upcoming gubernatorial race, launched a horrific attack on Governor Ron DeSantis (R) to Adolf Hitler.
Fried made her comments during an interview on Florida Public Radio’s “The Florida Roundup” on Friday.
Fried began the interview by saying, “He is doing everything possible to take away power from local governments, taking away people’s ability to protest, making it harder to vote, talking about, you know, banning books. That’s what dictators do. Instead of listening and trying to govern with the people, he is trying to govern over the people.”
If that wasn’t shocking enough, Fried went the extra step and said, “[D]o 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 in 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.”
Fried’s comments were extremely offensive while being absurdly inaccurate. Governor DeSantis has been a champion of freedom and has gone out of his way to fight for the rights of Floridians.
In the eyes of Nikki Fried, opposing the fearmongering Democrats in Washington D.C. is directly adjacent to launching a horrific genocide. No doubt Fried will regret her absurd comments come election time.
