DMFI CALLS ON REPRESENTATIVE MARY MILLER (R-IL) TO RESIGN AFTER PRAISING HITLER

Washington, DC (January 12, 2021) — Following the comments made by Representative Mary Miller (R-IL) last week, Democratic Majority for Israel President and CEO Mark Mellman issued the following statement:

“We have called on, and will continue to call on, Representative Mary Miller to resign after she praised Hitler while speaking at a rally with Trump supporters just a day before a violent mob of racists and antisemites attacked the Capitol building. Rep. Miller declared, ‘Hitler was right on one thing.’ Invoking Hitler is outrageous and deeply offensive to the six million Jews and millions of others who perished under his genocidal rule. Rep. Miller is unfit to represent America.

As President Trump’s time in office comes to an end, we must weed out the fascist and white supremacist influences that threaten our democracy.”
