Rep. Solomon condemns House Republican Rep. Dush's Nazi comparisons
PHILADELPHIA, May 4 – Today, state Rep. Jared Solomon, D-Phila., released the following statement in response to Rep. Chris Dush’s comments comparing Governor Tom Wolf's stay-at-home orders to keep Pennsylvanians safe in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic to the Nazi regime today in committee:
"The innumerable atrocities of the Nazi regime rarely if ever merit comparison with anything; what they did was uniquely evil in the history of mankind. What Rep Dush seems to not understand is the damage, the hurt, the insult that his ignorant remarks inflict on countless Pennsylvanians, myself very much included," Solomon said. "I for one will not sit idly by while he demeans the memories of my ancestors to score cheap political points against the governor, who has, mind you, ably and calmly executed his constitutional authority to save lives during this pandemic."
