Democrats Complain that Calling Governor Whitmer “Hitler” Denigrates Both the Holocaust and the Fact that Trump is Hitler

Protestors with anti-Whitmer signs

LANSING, MICHIGAN – After Michigan’s Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer instituted a state-wide lockdown, issuing what in some instances seemed to be very autocratic and arbitrary restrictions on freedom, some protestors on the Right began calling her “Hitler”.

This enraged many Democrats and left-wing Media pundits, who declared that calling her “Hitler” not only denigrates the memory of the Holocaust, but it also denigrates the fact that Trump is actually Hitler.

“Calling a political rival ‘Hitler’ is beyond the pale,” said a spokesperson for the Michigan Democratic Party. “It shows a complete lack of historical perspective, and is horribly disrespectful to the memory of the 6 million Jews that were killed in the Holocaust.”

“Except if we’re saying it about Trump. Then it’s OK.”

“Whitmer hasn’t started a World War, or rounded people up to send them to the gas chambers,” the Democratic spokesperson pointed out. “She hasn’t killed 6 million innocent people. People may disagree with her politics, but any comparisons to Hitler are ridiculously outlandish, and based on pure hysteria.”

“On the other hand, with Trump, it feels like he’s done these things. Or that he will, very soon.”

“So people should stop absurdly comparing Democrats to ‘Hitler’, and leave those comparisons for the real Hitlers: Trump and the Republicans.”
