White House Press SecretaryÂ Spicer’s Hitler RemarksÂ in Tandem With Holocaust Deniers
WASHINGTON, DC, April 12, 2017âYesterday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer made comments denying Hitler’s use of chemical weaponsÂ when referencing Assad and the people of Syria.
“We are outraged byÂ White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s denialÂ of Hitler’s use ofÂ chemical weapons,Â which in fact contributed to the death of over 6 million Jews and othersÂ through the use of gas chambers.Â His comments are in tandem with Holocaust deniers. To add insult to injury, these reprehensible comments were made as Jewish communitiesÂ across the country and world gatherÂ to celebrateÂ Passover. It was an astonishingly ignorant and harmful statement to make.
“We denounce all comparisons that invoke the painful legacies of trauma and brutality in an attempt to make a political point. We continue to be deeply offended, angry, and disgusted by the actions of Trump’s Administration. No apology can erase these indignities from our memories. On the contrary, they fuel our commitment to stand together with others for truth and justice,” said Rea Carey, National LGBTQ Task Force Executive Director.
