Broward Clerk of Courts Apologizes for Hitler-Quoting Post

Forman added that she took “full responsibility,” that a “valuable lesson has been learned” and said people could “rest assured that nothing similar will occur again.” She also described her apology as “sincere and heartfelt.” The original Monday night post was a photograph of a supposed quotation attributed to Hitler. It outlined that the best way to take control from people is to do so gradually, to avoid being noticed. Reuters and Politifact have concluded that the passage, which was been shared widely in the past, was not from Mein Kampf, and did not reflect Hitler’s views. Last Tuesday, state Rep. Michael Gottlieb said Forman’s original post showed “a complete lack of respect for the atrocities of the Holocaust” and demonstrated that “she is not fit for public office.” U.S. Reps. Alcee Hastings, Debbie Wassserman Schultz, Ted Deutch and Frederica Wilson — all of whom are Democrats, as is Forman — said Wednesday that it is “repulsive that she would amplify the supposed ‘wisdom’ from the world’s most heinous mass murderer, anti-Semite, and white supremacist.” Forman faces two opponents in the Aug. 18 election, retired judges Paul Backman and Mark Speiser, both of whom are Jewish. https://www.850wftl.com/broward-clerk-of-courts-calls-her-hitler-post-a-warning/
