Top House Dem: Country On Track To Repeat Days Of Nazi Germany

Then-Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden talks to Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., at a primary night election rally in Columbia, S.C., Feb. 29, 2020 after winning the South Carolina primary. President Biden has frequently referenced the critical role South Carolina played in his nomination. He points to his decades-long relationship with the state whose Black voters handed him a major win at a desperate time for his Democratic campaign. But, in recent interviews with The Associated Press, some Black voters in South Carolina who supported Biden reluctantly — or not at all — say they’re unimpressed and even dispirited.

  • House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., blamed the right’s “demonization of Nancy Pelosi” for the attack on Paul Pelosi in their San Francisco home, saying that this is what happens in a country that follows “Germany in the early ’30s.”
  • “This country is on track to repeat what happened in Germany when it was the greatest democracy going, when it elected a chancellor that then co-opted the media,” Clyburn told Fox News Digital on Thursday.
  • “This past president called the press the enemy of the people. That is a bunch of crap. And that is what’s going on in this country.”
