Hillary Clinton Criticized Over D-Day Post Comparing Trump To Hitler

 June 11, 2024

Hillary Clinton's recent D-Day anniversary post has sparked significant controversy.

The former first lady’s post compared the historic Normandy invasion to the upcoming presidential election, leading to widespread backlash.

Clinton’s post, published on Thursday to mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day, was aimed at ex-President Donald Trump. According to Radar Online, Clinton appeared to equate the sacrifices of World War II soldiers to the act of voting in the upcoming election between Joe Biden and Trump.

“Eighty years ago today, thousands of brave Americans fought to protect democracy on the shores of Normandy. This November, all we have to do is vote,” Clinton wrote.

Swift Social Media Backlash

The post quickly ignited a firestorm of criticism. Many social media users and public figures accused Clinton of making an inappropriate comparison. Critics argued that she was equating Trump to Adolf Hitler, which they found offensive and disrespectful.

Notable conservative commentator Ben Shapiro was among the first to respond, labeling Clinton’s comments as “an enormously stupid and vile comment.” He emphasized that “Trump is not Hitler.” GOP Senator Tommy Tuberville also shared his dismay, stating, “These Dems couldn't be more dramatic and deranged. They're comparing storming the beaches of Normandy on [D-Day] to voting against Trump.”

Public Figures Condemn Clinton's Remarks

The backlash wasn't limited to social media users. Several prominent public figures, including GOP Senators Tommy Tuberville and Marsha Blackburn, voiced their outrage. Blackburn criticized Clinton for “disrespecting” World War II veterans, calling her remarks “how disrespectful to our WWII heroes who faced unimaginable fear with immense courage 80 years ago today.”

Combat veteran Sean Parnell also weighed in, expressing his disgust. “To cheapen what WWII heroes did to BS garbage politics makes me sick. Again, WWII veterans deserve so much better than this,” Parnell lamented. The controversy surrounding Clinton's post highlights the sensitivity around comparing modern political events to significant historical moments.

Historical Comparisons Draw Further Criticism

Clinton has a history of drawing parallels between Trump and Hitler. Last November, she discussed the potential dangers of a second Trump term, likening it to Hitler’s rise to power in 1933. Clinton suggested that Trump, like Hitler, has “dictatorial authoritarian tendencies” and could pose a significant threat to democracy.

In her November comments, Clinton noted, "You could see it in countries where, well, Hitler was duly elected. And so suddenly, somebody with those tendencies, those dictatorial authoritarian tendencies, would be like: Oh, okay, we’re going to shut this down and we’re going to throw these people in jail." She added that Trump is openly communicating his intentions, making the comparison more alarming to her.

Previous Controversial Remarks

Clinton’s historical comparisons have not been without controversy. Her remarks last year came just days after Hamas attacked southern Israel on October 7, which further fueled the backlash. Fox News host Harris Faulkner criticized Clinton for her timing, calling her “so evil.” Faulkner noted, "In the middle of Israel at war with terrorists, to bring up any comparison with Hitler is just heartless."

Despite the backlash, Clinton has remained steadfast in her warnings about Trump. Her remarks continue to polarize public opinion, with some supporting her comparisons while others find them deeply offensive. The ongoing debate underscores the intense emotions surrounding the upcoming presidential election and the broader political climate.

This incident highlights the sensitivity and intensity of the current political discourse in the United States.
