Rep. David Eastman posted a social media comment that compared Hitler’s statement “I’ve run out of patience,” with President Joe Biden’s statement, “Our patience is wearing thin.” The Left pounced, to make it appear that Eastman was endorsing Hitler.
Such is the peril for a Republican trying to show that the “patience is wearing thin” statement from Biden is, in fact, a threat against the people.
Most of the commentary on Twitter was from Leftists who said Eastman should be fired. Very few of his constituents in Wasilla, however, use Twitter and most are probably unaware of the kerfuffle.
None of the Twitterati spoke out against Rep. Sara Hannan of Juneau, who earlier this month appeared to defend Nazi medical experiments, because at least, according to her testimony on the record in the Alaska Legislature, they led to something good in terms of frostbite research. She described how Nazis froze the limbs of Jewish experiment subjects and then broke them off.
Hannan apologized after Must Read Alaska wrote a story about her bizarre rationalization. The story of her apology went national. The Left remained mostly on mute.
Eastman, on the other hand, was defending the rights of Americans to not take the Covid-19 vaccine after President Biden had mandated vaccines for about 80 million Americans, to include all who work in the federal government, who have federal contracts, or for those who work in businesses where there are more than 100 people.
“That should be unmistakably clear,” Eastman said. Eastman, who was speaking from the lobby at the Trump Hotel in Washington, D.C., said that in his last four public appearances, he has spoken against genocide. He spoke in Palmer, Kenai, and also on the House floor. “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it,” he said, quoting the philosopher Santayana.
The Left and the mainstream media also went after Rep. Ben Carpenter, another Republican, who in May of 2020 talked about the dangers of shaming people over Covid.
He reminded his colleagues that the Jews were made to wear yellow star patches to indicate their Jewishness, and that health protocols that put stickers on people for having gone through Covid screening reminded him of that.
That became a national story, with the leftist media taking pleasure in criticizing Carpenter, who represents Nikiski.
As for Eastman, he is loathed by the Left, and Must Read Alaska predicts Alaska readers will soon be able to read all about him in the local mainstream media and, no doubt, the national media.
