Freshman Illinois congresswoman claims 'Hitler was right on one thing' during rally

Freshman Illinois congresswoman claims 'Hitler was right on one thing' during rally”

Two US legislators on Friday forthrightly condemned the display of antisemitic slogans and symbols by some elements of the mob that stormed Capitol Hill on Wednesday in a bid to forcibly prevent the certification of Joe Biden as president.

CNN's Don Lemon railed against newly-elected Republican Illinois Congresswoman Mary Miller, for positively invoking Hitler in a speech at the pro-Trump rally on Wednesday, when she said the Nazi leader "was right on one thing, the children are our future".

"Earlier this week, I spoke to a group of mothers about the importance of faith and guarding our youth from destructive influences", she said in a statement released by her office.

Mary Miller of IL drew swift criticism from fellow Republicans Wednesday for quoting Adolf Hitler in a speech a day earlier outside the U.S. Capitol.

Miller's spokeswoman didn't respond to multiple requests seeking comment. "He said, whoever has the youth has the future", Miller said in the speech, for which she had to apologize later. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) reposted footage of Miller's comments and called for the incoming congresswoman to "resign immediately".

"Hitler also said, 'Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it, ' If we mandate people not talk about the insidious actions of Hitler, we dismiss the horrific events he incited and open the door for them to be repeated", Fletcher wrote. Miller, a farmer and Sunday school teacher, was elected to her first term in November. A newly elected IL congresswoman is now discovering that fact firsthand.

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker, a Democrat who is Jewish, called the remarks "unfathomable".

"The disturbing antisemitic symbols displayed by the insurrectionists at the US Capitol confirm what we already knew - antisemitism is very much alive in America today", Trone stated on Twitter.

"I call on her to resign immediately so that someone who better understands the sacrifices our courageous service members made during World War II can more effectively represent our state", Duckworth said in a statement.

That disingenuous claim didn't quell the backlash, however, as an online petition calling for her resignation garner more than 10,000 names and four members of Illinois' Democratic Congressional caucus, including Sen.
