Polis statement on White House’s comments regarding Holocaust
Washington: Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., gave the following statement regarding White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s comments regarding the Holocaust. Spicer said, in part, “You had someone as despicable as Hitler who did not even sink to using chemical weapons” when talking about Syria.
"As a member of the Jewish community, I am hurt every time our history is denied, and as an American and human being, I am appalled by Sean Spicer's recent assertion that Hitler did not use chemical weapons. It is a fact that the Nazis used lethal gas to murder millions of Jews and other minorities. To say the contrary is to undermine the memory of each innocent victim. Every time the administration spews alternative facts, the entire nation suffers and loses credibility worldwide. I strongly implore the administration to retract the comparison set out by Sean Spicer. If we deny history, we're bound to repeat it."
