Anne Frank Center Demands Sean Spicer’s Resignation Over Hitler Remarks In BLISTERING Tweet Storm

The whole world is rightfully outraged at White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer for promoting the worst kind of Holocaust denial from the White House press podium – and during Passover, no less. Now, one of the most influential entities that exists to make sure we never forget the heinous crimes against humanity that took place in Nazi Germany is demanding that Spicer either resign or be fired.

The Anne Frank Center released a blistering statement calling for Spicer to get the ax. The statement reads:

BREAKING NEWS:

SEAN SPICER DENIES HITLER GASSED JEWS DURING THE HOLOCAUST. MR. PRESIDENT, FIRE SEAN SPICER NOW.

In his afternoon press briefing, Sean Spicer invoked Adolf Hitler in describing Syrian President Assad. Spicer said “Even Hitler didn’t sink to using chemical weapons.” Reaction of Steven Goldstein, Executive Director of the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect: “On Passover no less, Sean Spicer has engaged in Holocaust denial, the most offensive form of fake news imaginable, by denying Hitler gassed millions of Jews to death. Spicer’s statement is the most evil slur upon a group of people we have ever heard from a White House press secretary. Sean Spicer now lacks the integrity to serve as White House press secretary, and President Trump must fire him at once.”#Antisemitism#NeverAgain

Here is the embed of the Facebook post:

They weren’t finished with Spicer after that statement, either. Whoever runs the Anne Frank Center’s Twitter account sent out several scathing tweets, demanding that Trump fire Spicer:

The Anne Frank Center is right. Sean Spicer does need to be fired. The thing is, this is not just an episodic gaffe with this White House. They omitted any mention of the Jews from their Holocaust Remembrance Day statement, they have white supremacists like Steve Bannon and Stephen Miller working in the West Wing, and during the campaign, Trump regularly associated with and flirted online with white supremacists.

If Team Trump really wants people to believe they aren’t anti-Semites, they can start by firing Sean Spicer. And get rid of Miller and Bannon while they’re at it.
