Washington, Aug 7 (ANI): An Ohio congressional candidate has defended a controversial tweet posted by her, in which she put US President Barack Obama in the same category as Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong.
Marisha Agana, who considers abortion to be genocide, is a Republican and is running against Democrat Tim Ryan in Ohio's 13th Congressional District.
I am 100% against abortion and I am excited that this issue has come to the forefront of my campaign. I hope all of you understand my position on abortion better now and why I put national leaders that believe in and support abortion into a special group of leaders who have either committed or supported genocide, Politico quoted Agana, as sayingBecause of this and the position Mr. Barrack [sic] Hussain [sic] Obama has taken on abortion directly as well as the use of Obamacare to provide contraception and abortifacient drugs I feel it is proper and important to have included him on the list I tweeted about, she added.
Agana was responding to the controversy over her tweet that she posted on Twitter earlier.
History has a way of repeating itself: Stalin, Hitler, Mao Tse Tung and now Obama!!! she had tweeted.
The difference is Hitler, Stalin, et cetera, they committed genocide. They did it directly. They walked up and killed millions of people. Now, Obama or any national leader that supports abortion is supporting genocide. They're not pulling the trigger like Hitler, but they support genocide, Larry Nichols, Agana's campaign manager said.Nichols claimed that he was tickled that ... we're finally getting attention in a race that hasn't been getting a lot of attention.
