Politician Comparing Opponents to Hitler Seems Like an Eloquent Guy

A very important clarification, from the political world: when Pennsylvania State Sen. Scott Wagner compared labor unions to Hitler and Vladimir Putin, he wasn't actually comparing them. Okay? Can we clear this up?

Here is what Scott Wagner said, on the state Senate floor, in support of his own stupid bill to bar the state from deducting union dues from employee paychecks, via the AP:

During the floor debate, he said, "The unions are about power and control. And there are two things that I continue to remember about power and control. There was a gentleman by the name of Hitler, he was about power and control. There's a gentleman by the name of Putin, who's across the ocean, that's about power and control."

Damn, it really makes you think.... VITAL CLARIFICATION:

"I'm not comparing the unions to Hitler and I'm not comparing them to Putin," Wagner said. "I'm talking about the concept of power and control. … I didn't say the unions are out killing people."

There was a gentleman by the name of Hitler, who was always talking about the concept of power and control... just like Scott Wagner. Wouldn't hurt a fly ;)

All of this took place in Harrisburg, PA, hometown of Caity Weaver.
