Jewish Insider: Democratic Majority for Israel Condemns Comments Made By William Harper, Aide to President Trump

Democratic Majority for Israel condemned comments made by William Happer, an aide to President Trump, comparing the demonization of carbon dioxide to the treatment of the Jewish people under the Nazis:

 

It’s hard to know whether William Happer knows less about climate change or the Holocaust, but it’s clear he should not hold a responsible position in government,” DMFI said in a statement to JI. “Happer’s comparison of the Nazi treatment of Jews to what he calls the “demonization” of carbon dioxide is deeply insensitive and offensive. He should resign. Republicans, including President Trump, who refuse to call out this hurtful language from political allies, but are all too quick to weaponize such language if it suits their political objectives, are hypocrites.
