Democrat DeSantis Challenger faces backlash for comparing him to Hitler

Democrat DeSantis challenger Nikki Fried is under fire on social media for comparing the governor of Florida to notorious tyrant Hitler.

Jonathan Turley wrote “In the age of rage, DeSantis cannot simply be wrong but must now be “Hitler”?

“Nikki Fried seems caught in a remake of Boys of Brazil2. When you cannot discuss agriculture policies without the Anschluss, you are addicted to rage,” he added.

Joel Fischer tweeted:

As a Jewish person, I am so disgusted to see @NikkiFried comparing @RonDeSantisFL to Hitler.

I’m proud to say that @GovRonDeSantis and his family are the most pro Jewish loving people out there.

Nikki Fried should re-evaluate her life.

Another Twitter user replied “Maybe she could simply watch the History Channel to understand what the Nazis were and did.”

Fried said while appearing on a Podcast while speaking about DeSantis “Instead of listening and trying to govern with the people, he is trying to govern over the people, and, you know, that, I’m sorry, I’m a student of history, too. I saw the rise of Hitler.”

Asked if she was making a direct comparison between DeSantis and Hitler, she doubled down and said “In a lot of ways, yes.”
