Connecticut lawmaker refuses to apologize for comparing Lamont to Hitler

A Connecticut lawmaker is defending her comments comparing Gov. Ned Lamont to German dictator Adolf Hitler over the governor’s COVID-19 vaccine policy for state employees and other mandates.

In a statement posted Friday night on her Facebook page, state Rep. Anne Dauphinais, R-Killingly, responded to the criticism by further drawing comparisons between the Democratic governor and Hitler.

“This governor, with the help of the one-party rule we have in this state right now, has taken dictatorial powers for himself for what will be almost two full years when this latest extension expires,” Dauphinais said. “Hitler, too, was a dictator enabled by the rule of the single Nazi party.”

When reached on Saturday, Dauphinais declined to comment further than the statement she posted Friday on her Facebook page.

4. Frustrating how neutral the coverage is things like these are

No hint of how bizarre and basically incorrect the comparison is, not how offensive it is to Jews and hitters many other victims.
