I am speechless and beyond horrified by Brenda Barton’s comparison of President Obama to Adolph Hitler. Does she not realize that our president is trying to save people’s lives by helping as many people as possible have health care?
Hitler, however, caused over 12 million people to die in concentration camps as well as causing military and civilian deaths of over 4 million people in Germany alone and almost half a million American military deaths. Estimates for combined military and civilian deaths range from 50 million to 60 million people total from all countries involved.
As a Jewish constituent who is supposedly represented by Ms. Barton, I demand that she issue a sincere apology for her atrocious comments at the very least, but I would most like to see voters on both sides of the aisle petition for her recall. Her comments border on sedition and hold up the state of Arizona and the community of Payson to nationwide contempt. Her stated values do not reflect those of the people I know in our town.
