“Start reading some of those quotes:” North Carolina Republican urges people to review Hitler’s and Stalin’s moments at the Moms for Liberty event

North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson urged the Philly audience at the Moms for Liberty event to reconsider the phrases used by Hitler, Stalin, or Mao.

Do not criticize Moms for Liberty for quoting Hitler

Moms for Liberty’s chapter included Hitler’s quote in the newsletter. The origins of the quote, “He alone, who OWNS the youth, GAINS the future,” are not quite clear, but what is well documented is that it was among the Nazis’ favorites. The Indiana chapter apologized, but Robinson urged people not to be quick to judge.

It’s time to “start reading” quotes from the likes of Hitler or Stalin

Robinson told the audience during the Moms for Liberty Philly event, “Here’s the thing: Whether you’re talking about Adolf Hitler; whether you’re talking about Chairman Mao; whether you’re talking about Stalin; whether you’re talking about Pol Pot; whether you’re talking about Castro in Cuba; or whether you’re talking about a dozen other despots all around the globe; it is time for us to get back and start reading some of those quotes.”

In Robinson’s defense, he was trying to prove that quoting Hitler does not mean supporting him, as he clarified that it means that every history book in America supports Hitler for including his words.

What he did not say

Robinson, who is running for governor in North Carolina in 2024, failed to say that education could lead to prevention.

Near the end of his speech, North Carolina Lt. Gov. said it was the time to start teaching these quotes for our children to understand “dirty, despicable, awful things that those communists and social despots did.”

Facebook activities

However, Advocate reported, “a review of his Facebook activity over the past seven years revealed he shared conspiracy theories, promoted Holocaust denialism, and pushed falsehoods about the 2020 election.”

Alleged attacks on the LGBT community, immigrants, Jewish, and Black people

Robinson dubbed January 6 rioters as “political prisoners” and posts alleging that shady “Satanic” and “occult” forces are plaguing society, as well as multiple conspiracy theories about the “New World Order.”

Dubious statements

Robinson wrote in 2014, “Note to liberals; I’ll accept ‘Gay Pride’ when you accept ‘White Pride.'” He also sparked outrage among the Jewish community with some of his alleged posts, Talking Points Memo reported.

The Biden administration had to condemn some of Robinson’s statements

Robinson said that heterosexual couples are “superior” to gay couples because the latter cannot conceive a child together. Robinson remarked, “If homosexuality is of God, what purpose does it serve? What does it make? What does it create? It creates nothing.”

The White House reacted

The White House condemned his remarks about the LGBTQ community as “repugnant and offensive.”

More controversies

He opposes abortion though he admitted that he paid a woman to have an abortion in 1989. He also shared he would abolish the State Board of Education and has a firm pro-gun stance.

The consequences

Regardless of where you stand, “borrowing” a quote from someone who slaughtered millions comes with consequences, especially since Moms for Liberty claims to be all about educational rights for parents.
