Richard Mourdock’s Remark About Nation Going Way of Hitler's Nazi Germany Draws Criticism
On Saturday when Treasurer Richard Mourdock compared the direction of the nation to the Nazi Germany guided by Hitler, while speaking during a farewell speech at the Indiana Republican Convention, the reaction of the people ranged from annoyance to surprise to bewilderment.
He said, "The people of Germany in a free election selected the Nazi Party because they made great promises that appealed to them because they were desperate and destitute. And why is that? Because Germany was bankrupt."
For Mourdock, it was not the first time as he has been known to stir up outrage with provocative comments in the past as well. Last week while speaking about the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion during World War II, he said, "The truth is, 70 years later, we are drifting on the tides toward another beachhead and it is the bankruptcy of the United States of America."
On Saturday, his snarky references to the Nazi regime attracted spiky objections from not only the Democrats but also from the members of the Jewish community and even some of the Republicans.
John Zody, Indiana Democratic Chairman said his words were "ugly" and deserve to be condemned by Republican leaders.
