Dem Challenger Crosses Line with DeSantis Attack, Faces Backlash for Making ‘Hysterical Comparison’ to Hitler: ‘This Is Not Funny, It’s Sick’

Democrat Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried has been slammed for her “sick” attacks against Ron DeSantis as she prepares to run against the Florida governor in the general election for the highest office in the state.

Despite not yet making it through the Democratic primary, Fried has already caused a stir for making a “hysterical comparison” between Gov. DeSantis and Nazi leader Adolph Hitler.

During an interview with WLRN’s “The Florida Round-Up,” Fried, said: “He is doing everything possible to take power away from local governments, taking away people’s abilities 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, and, you know, that, I’m sorry, 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 to power you know, wanting his own militia and having his own militia.

“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.”

“Are you comparing DeSantis to Hitler?” the reporter interjected to make sure Fried knew what she was saying.

“In a lot of ways, yes,” Fried said.

“I have studied Hitler and how he got to power, you know, wanting his own militia.”

However, Fried’s claims about DeSantis having his “own militia” are in reference to a debunked story.

When asked about the fatal flaw in her hysterical argument she said:

“Absolutely, but the reason why this governor wants it is different than the other states that have been utilizing it for emergency purposes.

“This governor is doing it for the sole purposes of power and doing so to make fear and to instill that, to blame people for what is happening in their lives, blaming certain parts of our society and culture, and that’s exactly what Hitler did to the Jews back during World War II.”

Christina Pushaw, Gov. DeSantis press secretary fired back:

“If we had an honest media instead of DNC stenographers, reporters would be criticizing Nikki Fried’s dishonest and offensive claim that Governor DeSantis is a modern-day Hitler. 

“With this hysterical comparison, Fried not only smears millions of Floridians as Nazis, but also trivializes Hitler’s crimes against humanity.

“This is not funny, it’s sick.”
