*** UPDATED x7 *** US Rep. Mary Miller at DC rally: “Hitler was right on one thing. He said ‘Whoever has the youth has the future’”

Wednesday, Jan 6, 2021

* Whoa…


No relation.

I’ve asked the Illinois Republican Party for comment on this. Any bets on if they’ll respond?

*** UPDATE 1 *** First GOP response…


Still nothing from the ILGOP.

…Adding… The full video from Margot McGowan Staebler is here.

*** UPDATE 2 *** The full Hitler quote

“In my great educative work I am beginning with the young. We older ones are used up. Yes, we are old already. We are rotten to the marrow. We have no unrestrained instincts left. We are cowardly and sentimental. We are bearing the burden of a humiliating past, and have in our blood the dull recollection of serfdom and servility. But my magnificent youngsters! Are there finer ones anywhere in the world? Look at these young men and boys! What material! With them I can make a new world…. My teaching is hard. Weakness has to be knocked out of them. In my Ordensburgen a youth will grow up before which the world will shrink back. A violently active dominating, intrepid, brutal youth - that is what I am after. Youth must be all those things. It must be indifferent to pain. There must be no weakness or tenderness in it. I want to see once more in its eyes the gleam of pride and independence of the beast of prey. Strong and handsome must my young men be. I will have them fully trained in all physical exercises. I intend to have an athletic youth - that is the first and the chief thing. In this way I shall eradicate the thousands of years of human domestication. Then I shall have in front of me the pure and noble natural material. With that I can create the new order.”

*** UPDATE 3 *** Gov. Pritzker told reporters today that he wanted to address “the unfathomable and disgusting remarks” by Rep. Miller

Let me be clear. Hitler got nothing right. This reprehensible rhetoric has no place in our politics. Illinois Republicans cannot allow this to stand and must condemn this vile, evil streak in their party. If Representative Miller was the least bit interested in history, she would visit the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center to learn just how wrong Hitler really was.

*** UPDATE 4 *** The ILGOP says it will have something to say “at some point.” While they try to figure out what to do, here’s a GOP state Rep…


*** UPDATE 5 *** Press release…

ILGOP Chairman Tim Schneider released the following statement regarding Congresswoman Mary Miller’s comments referencing Adolph Hitler:

“That language is wrong and disgusting. We urge Congresswoman Miller to apologize.”

*** UPDATE 6 *** SGOP Leader-Designate Dan McConchie…

“These nonsense comments are some of the most ridiculous I’ve ever heard from an elected official. Hitler was the epitome of evil. Period.”

*** UPDATE 7 *** Press release…

The Illinois Legislative Jewish Caucus is releasing the following statement in response to remarks earlier today from U.S. Rep. Mary Miller (R-IL):

“U.S. Congressperson Mary Miller (R-IL) has demonstrated an act of blatant antisemitism and disrespect to the Jewish people and all those who perished at the hands of the Nazis.

“A sitting member of Congress who uses Hitler’s obscene methods for indoctrinating children with racism and fascism as a guidepost, igniting hate and violence, has no place in Congress.

“If Rep. Miller has any respect left for the role of a U.S. Congressperson or any shred of dignity in her, she will do what’s right and resign.”

    I guess this means that Art Jones was ahead of his time in the Republican Party?


  3. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 11:45 am:

    I dunno, you start quoting Hitler, tough to say Miller doesn’t have racist thoughts, at bare minimum.

    Wonder if those in the Illinois delegation will condemn the comment?


  4. - Roadrager - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 11:48 am:

    ==Wonder if those in the Illinois delegation will condemn the comment?==

    They haven’t seen the tweet. They haven’t heard the audio. Now, if you’ll excuse them, they’re very busy.


  5. - OneMan - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 11:49 am:

    So who do I give to so I can ensure this guy gets redistricted into oblivion?


  6. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 11:50 am:

    === Now, if you’ll excuse them, they’re very busy.===

    Oh.

    The ones undermining democracy and the electoral college, those one?

    Ah. That makes sense.


  7. - Excitable Boy - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 11:50 am:

    Oh now we’re cancelling people over Hitler? When did everyone get so PC?

    /snark


  8. - Scott Cross for President - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 11:51 am:

    The IL GOP is huddled in a room (small room) desperately trying to blame this on Madigan. Give them some time. It’s their thing, they’ll get it done.


  9. - JS Mill - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 11:53 am:

    =Wonder if those in the Illinois delegation will condemn the comment?=

    Darin LaHood is examining the situation and waiting for all of the facts to be presented.

    Rep. Mary Miller- Good christian, Marge Schott school of philosophy adherent, reader and quoter of “Mein Kampf.”


  10. - Precinct Captain - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 11:54 am:

    Can the state house get an on the record vote condemning Nazism for this weekend session? If so curious to see how her husband Chris would vote


  11. - Paddyrollingstone - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 11:55 am:

    Yes, they will respond with something like, “she was quoting Hitler before he went too far,” or something like that


  12. - SouthSide Markie - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 11:56 am:

    It’s off topic, but Rodney Davis was appointed to be one of the House tellers for the Electoral College certification.


  13. - DuPage Saint - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 11:57 am:

    Actually a version of controlling or educating children and you control future has floated around for years and been attributed to many people but I don’t think I ever saw it attributed to Hitler
    I would hope in future when she quotes Hitler she confirms quote. /S


  14. - Gravy Bond - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 11:59 am:

    Will there be any debate about the substance of the statement, or just emotional expressions of outrage? I already know the answer.


  15. - Left of the Lake - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 11:59 am:

    My one-word response: speechless


  16. - Lincoln Lad - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 11:59 am:

    This is just great. I’m soooooo proud of our state today. How do you recall her?


  17. - Just Me 2 - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:00 pm:

    um, she needs to resign. Sorry, that may be extreme, but so was the person she was complimenting.


  18. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:01 pm:

    ===any debate about the substance of the statement===

    LOL

    Go away.


  19. - Tommydanger - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:02 pm:

    The current Republican Party bears a stronger resemblance to the Know-Nothing Party of 1856 than the Republican Party of 1856.


  20. - Ducky LaMoore - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:04 pm:

    Mary Miller getting her own personal Operation Barbarossa out of the way early, I see.


  21. - Flying Elvis'-Utah Chapter - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:04 pm:

    Gravy Bond-

    You really want to parse a statement of “Hitler was right on one thing”?

    Your brown shirt is ready for pick up at the cleaners.


  22. - 618er - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:04 pm:

    Republicans performing Lingchi on themselves and each other, at the state and national level. Mind boggling….


  23. - illini - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:05 pm:

    Let me if I get this right. When John Shimkus “represented” me he boldly claimed that “corporations were his best friend” and he walked out of a State of the Union address because he was “bored”. And the lady who succeeded him and who purportedly said she will also represent me is quoting Adolph Hitler. OK, I understand.

    But to my friends throughout Illinois, please do not hold me responsible for electing these mental geniuses to such a responsible position.


  24. - Tommydanger - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:06 pm:

    I wonder how her local chapters of the American Legion and VFW view her statement.


  25. - Incandenza - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:07 pm:

    So tired of cancel culture, Hitler was no angel but he’s a part of our history and heritage! How would anyone know who he was if we didn’t quote him (heavy sarcasm)


  26. - JS Mill - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:07 pm:

    =Will there be any debate about the substance of the statement=

    What is stopping you? Give it a shot.

  27. - Homebody - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:09 pm:

    I imagine there has to have been numerous other historical figures who have said substantially similar things. She couldn’t use one of them?

    I’m always surprised by how knowledgeable these folks are about Hitler. How many biographies did she read?


  28. - Grandson of Man - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:10 pm:

    Hideous but not surprising. Trump has tapped into a deep well of this, that has been around forever. Great leaders work to tamp down the worst of us. That’s why presidents of both parties used to address us with the calm grandeur of, “My fellow Americans.” That’s what the new president is bringing back to us.


  29. - Norseman - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:11 pm:

    The Trump/GOP continues to show its true colors.


  30. - lowdrag - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:11 pm:

    She will say it was taken out of context, and she will apoligize. Then it will be done with.


  31. - essentially working - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:12 pm:

    You are all elevating her importance, maybe that was calculated on her part?


  32. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:12 pm:

    ===and she will apoligize===

    Kinda doubt it.


  33. - Moira - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:12 pm:

    Robert Loerzel on Twitter with the cite and the full quote (which is even worse, if that is possible.)

    “Whoever has the youth has the future. My teaching will be hard. Weakness will be knocked out of them. A violently active, dominating, brutal youth — that is what I am after.”

    Pretty chilling, especially when you consider the Proud Boys element likely present in that crowd.

    Good on Kinzinger.


  37. - NIU Grad - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:17 pm:

    Very telling that it’s taking so long to get a response from ILGOP or any prominent officials.

    They’re having trouble fitting “Speaker Madigan” into their response statement in a tasteful way.

    Kinzinger wasn’t too busy…

    Roadrager was being sarcastic, OW.


  42. - Todd - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:23 pm:

    the only quote about Nazis any republican should make is from Joliet Jake Blues from that bridge


  43. - Chicago Cynic - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:26 pm:

    I find it odd that she just happens to have a Hitler quote at the top of her mind. That she would even think for a nanosecond about quoting Hitler says an enormous amount about her. It’s not a good look. Wow.


  44. - Don't Bloc Me In - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:32 pm:

    Just in case you didn’t already know what an embarrassment she is for my part of Illinois, she decided to break early out of the gate.

    We have to give Adam a lot of credit. It would have been easy for him just to fall in line with the far right.

    Instead, he is one of few that have consistently stood up for democracy.

    I would have a tough time creating a list of issues where I agree with him, but I have tremendous respect for him.


  47. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:43 pm:

    === Instead, he is one of few that have consistently stood up for democracy.===

    Except for all that voting not to impeach Trump.

    Except that. Other than that. Besides that.

    Standing up to what should be obvious, if it needs to be a standard to whom they are “consistently”…

    What is going on in DC, right now, on the streets, outside evacuated buildings…


  48. - Chicagonk - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:43 pm:

    Who quotes Hitler? Insane


  49. - Excitable Boy - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:46 pm:

    - It would have been easy for him just to fall in line with the far right. -

    Horse stuff, he’s from Illinois. He’s making a political calculation, nothing more.


  50. - North sides (the original) - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:46 pm:

    She needs to resign today. There is no excuse or explanation that can make her words go away. Now the people she was addressing are storming the Capitol.


  51. - depressed in politics - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:48 pm:

    “A violently active dominating, intrepid, brutal youth - that is what I am after.” These are Hitler’s words, these are Miller’s intentions, and they are chilling.


  52. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:49 pm:

    === He’s making a political calculation, nothing more.===

    Watch how they vote, not what they say.

    Good on Kinzinger.

    Today. This moment. Good.

    Kinzinger was consistently with Trump, and voting not to impeach as well.


  53. - Anon E Moose - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:50 pm:

    Yeah how did things end up for that Hitler guy?


  54. - Lincoln Lad - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:55 pm:

    What’s happening today is a result of a child with no limits. It’s been worsened as smart people who knew better, decided to just follow that child’s tantrums, ignore his lies and misdeeds. Of course it has gotten worse over time, smart people have ignored the unacceptable behavior so it continued to get worse. Today - We’re evacuating buildings, and seeking to overturn the people’s vote. How is it that this is not enough for all of us?


  55. - essentially working - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:55 pm:

    I think we can all agree that no one except Rodney Davis really likes Kinzinger…


  56. - Steve Rogers - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:56 pm:

    Jaw drop. Since this is what the Republican party has turned into, I guess my father signing up for the war in 1944 was for naught. The Nazis won the hearts and minds of today’s American right. I’m truly saddened by the 74 million Americans who likely agree with her.


  57. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 12:59 pm:

    ===That she would even think for a nanosecond about quoting Hitler says an enormous amount about her.===

    Considering her audience, yeah, I’d guess quoting Hitler seemed appropriate to her. She knew who she was speaking to and they are now acting like the brownshirts they are.


  58. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 1:00 pm:

    - Lincoln Lad -

    Well said. On point.

    This idea that today all is forgotten and forgiven, how we got here wasn’t folks woke up this morning and decided to go to DC and think these things.

    Folks were enabled, and enablers helped the President.


  59. - LoyalVirus - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 1:08 pm:

    Another indication that Kinzinger is looking at 2022


  60. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 1:09 pm:

    === Roadrager was being sarcastic===

    My humble and sincere apologies, to you both.

    My snark-meter today is being overridden, and that is on me.

    Sorry.


  61. - Precinct Captain - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 1:09 pm:

    Did she break into song as well?

    The sun on the meadow is summery warm.
    The stag in the forest runs free.
    But gather together to greet the storm.
    Tomorrow belongs to me.
    The branch of the linden is leafy and
    Green,
    The Rhine gives its gold to the sea.
    But somewhere a glory awaits unseen.
    Tomorrow belongs to me.
    Now Fatherland, Fatherland, show us the sign
    Your children have waited to see
    The morning will come
    When the world is mine
    Tomorrow belongs to me
    Tomorrow belongs to me
    Tomorrow belongs to me
    Tomorrow belongs to me


  62. - Matt - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 1:10 pm:

    I was a staunch Republican and even voted for Trump in 2016, hoping for change. I dismissed the first 2 years of Trump, still holding onto hope. But these last 2 years have me an avowed, and maybe even lifelong, Democrat. Never thought the words would ever come out of my mouth. However, the Republicans continue to go to great lengths to make me feel better about my decision.

  67. - Candy Dogood - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 1:21 pm:

    As the saying goes, when in Rome do as the Romans.

    I don’t think we should be surprised that a speaker at a Nazi rally quoted a Nazi. The Illinois GOP has nominated another Nazi to office, but this one won. The Illinois GOP has a Nazi problem.

    I am not a fan of Representative Kinzinger and I am well aware of his culpability in contributing to the GOP’s Nazi problem. We should all recognize that as of right now, the GOP has been factionalized and that Rep Kinzinger has boldly stated which faction he is in.

    So, I an glad Adam is closer to coming down on the right side of history.


  68. - Nova - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 1:23 pm:

    Mary Miller: Hm, I want to work something into this speech about children and the future…Maybe I could quote that Whitney Houston song, or….I’ve got it!


  69. - Lincoln Lad - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 1:24 pm:

    -Matt-
    What many elected officials are realizing, is that this movement was never ‘Republican’. Because so many republicans chose to surrender to it in a belief that it would yield them votes, they surrendered their party. They left you Matt. They decided the American way, under the constitution was worth sacrificing for a few votes. That’s the decision of the smart ones. The pro-Hitler party is what it always was, and I guess they’ve found a home.


  70. - Ralk - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 1:26 pm:

    She had actually written down “Hitler was right” and was reading from her notes. Astounding.

    My parents are both survivors. I hope she is just stupid, because sheer ignorance is not an excuse for such a disgusting comment. This is an affront to the world and a dagger to survivors.

    =So, I an glad Adam is closer to coming down on the right side of history.=

    well stated.

    Where is our “law and order” party and president right now? They tacitly encouraged an attack on congress. That is sedition. No different that the attack on Ft. Sumter in 1861.


  80. - OneMan - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 3:00 pm:

    I sincerely hope someone looks at her right now and asks “This is what you wanted, isn’t it”


  81. - Thomas Paine - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 3:05 pm:

    Apologize?

    She will not offer a genuine apology.

    She will say she is sorry if anyone was offended, that was not her intention, and then she will double down.


  82. - In 630 - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 3:11 pm:

    The only acceptable thing for her to do is resign.


  83. - Animus - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 3:15 pm:

    Quick question, diet anybody know if a Rep has to be sworn in before they can be censured?

    …could be another first for Illinois.


  84. - Shytown - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 3:16 pm:

    You know what Rep. Kinzinger - you and republicans across this nation had a chance to put this to an end. But you lacked the courage to do the right thing and vote to impeach Trump - a man who said there was fine people on both sides of Charlottesville. That should have been enough for you. So you have just as much to do with this garbage as any others who stood by for four years while he went down this rabbit hole.


  85. - Candy Dogood - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 3:17 pm:

    ===We urge Congresswoman Miller to apologize===

    Apologize for what, exactly? Lets be specific.

    At this point, they should be demanding that she resign. The seat is a solid Republican District and their party is in the minority, they do not lose anything by demanding that a Nazi resign from congress.


  86. - Sweet Mama - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 3:31 pm:

    I live in the 15th district. I think she is truly representing the people who voted for her, some of whom are likely in DC right now trying to overthrow the government. Unfortunately, she is not a one off.


  87. - illinois veteran - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 3:45 pm:

    sorry state when a elected official quotes HILTLER on house floor. I am sorry to say she represents me. I am 72 years old and never voted for a republican however I SALUTE ADAM K. he has spoken out about this for a long time a true AMERICAN


  88. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 3:47 pm:

    === I SALUTE ADAM K. he has spoken out about this for a long time===

    He has continually and purposely voted with this president, Kinzinger voted against impeachment.

    Short memories will not work now. The days of forgetting are gone.


  89. - MyTwoCents - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 4:00 pm:

    There are a lot of ways that she could have made her point but she picked the absolutely worst option. The ease that she decided to quote Hitler is disturbing.

    Not only is quoting Hitler never a good idea but to say he was right about this specific quote shows a shocking lack of historical knowledge & in fact blatant ignorance. Beyond what other commentators have discussed already about his views towards youth, the history of the Hitler Youth, the indoctrination of children & using child soldiers in combat during WWII demonstrate that nobody should ever be viewing Hitler’s attitudes towards the youth in a positive light.


  90. - NIU Grad - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 4:12 pm:

    It took them half a day to issue that lukewarm one sentence statement?

    Unreal.


  91. - Excitable Boy - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 4:36 pm:

    - Apologize for what, exactly? -

    No kidding, this was not a gaffe, she said exactly what she meant to say.


  92. - Alipures - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 4:37 pm:

    I would like to hear US Rep Mary Miller explain quoting Hitler to the 1.5 million children that Hitler and the Nazis murdered. He took those youth and silenced their future.


  93. - zatoichi - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 5:19 pm:

    If you are a politician and feel a need to use a Hitler or Nazi reference for any reason it is time to resign. No explanation. No out of context nonsense. Just leave.


  94. - EA/WR - Wednesday, Jan 6, 21 @ 5:22 pm:

    Three days in office and we get this gem from Mary Miller. Can’t wait to see what other treasures await us over the next 2 years.
