Sean Spicer Reveals Reprehensible Racially Revisionist Regards with Ridiculous Statements and is Unfit to Serve

Updated on April 12, 2017

White House press secretary Sean Spicer's inflammatory claims, which drew the Anne Frank Center to immediately call for his firing, were followed by, if possible, worse apologies which only clarified his racial, ethnic, and religious intolerance.

Tuesday, the eleventh of April, 2017, during the Jewish observance of Passover, White House press secretary Sean Spicer claimed Adolph Hitler (Nazi dictator of Germany and murderer of millions, including Jewish and other religious and ethic minority groups, dissidents, the physically and mentally handicapped, homosexuals, and countless others in gas chambers throughout Germany and Europe) “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons”. This ludicrous and frankly, vile claim immediately drew calls for his dismissal from prominent members of the House (source: outraged-over-spicers-holocaust-remarks) and from the Anne Frank Center:

In the face of mounting criticism, Spicer obviously sought to clarify his original intent and tamper the rising anger, stating: “I think when you come to sarin gas, he was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing.” (Source: Spicer says Hitler didn't use chemical weapons) Apparently, Spicer is seemingly forgetting that ethnic minorities and other 'undesirables' are still citizens, thus many of the millions of victims were indeed "his own people", to borrow Spicer's phrasing.

Still grasping, the Press Secretary continued: “[Hitler] brought them into the Holocaust centers, I understand that. But I was saying in the way that Assad used them, where he dropped them down to innoc—into the middle of towns, it was brought—so the use of it, I appreciate the clarification, that was not the intent.” (Source: How Sean Spicer Flubbed the Holocaust on Passover)

So, attempting to compensate for his issues communicating, it seems Spicer still is betraying his basic non-consideration for the victims of the Holocaust; its victims, like those of the Khan Sheikhoun sarin attack (and perhaps coincidentally, sarin gas was developed and utilized by the Nazi regime) were also innocent, and townspeople, while much, much more numerous in number and scope, which one would think would make these facts recollectable to a White House Press Secretary.

If he hadn't failed to make his position clear enough insofar to the innocence of the Holocaust victims, this man who had just dubbed the genocidal Concentration Camps as nearly non-threatening sounding "Holocaust Centers" issued further statement:

"In no way was I trying to lessen the horrendous nature of the Holocaust, however, I was trying to draw a contrast of the tactic of using airplanes to drop chemical weapons on innocent people."

Not only has Sean Spicer displayed an abhorrent lack of understanding of world history and made multiple statements not befitting a Press Secretary of the White House of America, nor the judgement of that position, but he has underlined his deeply rooted xenophobic and exclusionary ideology. Recall that he refused to consider a racially motivated slaying of an African American man a hate crime although the murderer himself was quite adamant in admitting it so (Source: Sean Spicer refuses to acknowledge NYC stab victim Timothy Caughman's murder as hate crime), has a history of outright racist, bigoted, and misogynist attacks and intimidation upon reporters both female and of minority groups (Source: Sean Spicer’s April Ryan Comment Has Sparked a Heated Debate) including stooping so low as to criticize a reporter's "James Brown wig"(!!!), and a history of concocting and repeating outright lies (Source: Sean Spicer told at least 5 untruths in 5 minutes).

Spicer clearly does not consider minority groups of any kind to be entitled to citizenship. If this is still in question, he dispelled that completely, telling an Indian-American female (and New York native) it is “Such a great country that allows you to be here.” (Source: an ‘implied threat’ to her citizenship)


If Assad, the horrid and violent massacring dictator has ever used similar technical tactics in murder to those which Hitler used on an unprecedented and genocidal scale (in spite of the Press Secretary's denials), then Spicer himself is guilty of similar ideology. He is unfit to serve the United States of America, as he clearly feels that a large amount of native-born citizens (not to mention naturalized ones) are not deserving of citizenship due to his hatred of other races and religions. He must be removed, immediately.

      Your answer is really more suited to speaking of you, than Sean Spicer.

      wonder

      a idiot for a idiot

      Being real dumb

      takes the attention off the other idiot

      so he is doing a great job.

      never answers any quetions

      if

      probably

      real Joseph Goebbles.

      There isn't a single fact by you to back up any of these words, and I say words because they don't have any meaning, other than your emotional, venomous opinion. We get it you don't like Trump.

      Do you have a point?

      I actually wonder if anyone could do Spicers job. Being a idiot for a idiot would be an impossible task. Being real dumb takes the attention off the other idiot so he is doing a great job. Besides he never answers any quetions but if they replace him this should make it Bannon. He would probably know all about the Holocaust. A real Joseph Goebbles.
