Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth’s (D. IL) re-election campaign:
Here’s something I never thought I’d have to say out loud:
No congressperson should start a sentence with, “Hitler was right.”
But that’s the reality we’re living in now. Because last week before the Trump-incited insurrection, newly sworn-in Illinois Congresswoman Mary Miller quoted Adolf Hitler during her speech at a pro-Trump rally outside the U.S. Capitol.
This would be a disgusting message for anyone to repeat, but coming from a member of Congress, it is truly shocking and repugnant.
I condemn Congresswoman Miller in the harshest possible terms and call on her to resign immediately. Will you add your voice to mine and call on Miller to resign immediately? She does not deserve to represent the great state of Illinois in Congress.
I cannot think of a statement more offensive to our Veterans than what Miller said.
And don’t forget, this speech took place in the run up to a mob filled with neo-Nazis storming the U.S. Capitol in an attempted coup. Words have consequences.
