A Kansas ‘tea party’ Republican who is running a primary campaign against incumbent GOP Sen. Pat Roberts, and who is a distant cousin of President Barack Obama, has compared the president to Adolf Hitler and a “less despotic” Benito Mussolini.
According to Mother Jones, Milton Wolf, who claims to share an ancestor, Thomas Creekmore McCurry—Obama’s great-great-grandfather and Wolf’s great-grandfather with the president, has a history of comparing Obama and his party to Adolf Hitler and the Nazis.
Wolf, who claims that incumbent Republican Sen. Pat Roberts isn’t conservative enough, is an underdog in the primary contest against the sitting senator, but he does have the backing of the influential Senate Conservatives Fund political action committee..
On his Twitter account (@miltonwolfmd), Wolf once wrote: “Other than killing Jews, what domestic policy of the Nazis do today’s American liberals oppose?”
Speaking of the Affordable Care Act, Wolf agreed with former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s unfounded assertion that there is a secret provision within the act which would impose end-of-life decisions on senior citizens.
“Promises from the White House notwithstanding, Mrs. Palin indeed was right,” Wolf wrote in 2010. “Death panels are all too real, and no family deserves to be caught up in them. Granted, some may find the term ‘death panel’ unnecessarily provocative, but then again, what exactly should we call a panel whose decisions result in death?”
Wolf has also compared Obama’s economic policies to the Holocaust, tweeting: “Scapegoats of history: Hitler – Jews & gypsies. Mussolini – Jews & Bolsheviks. #Obama – Successful Americans. #tcot #p2 #gop.0
