Minnesota State Rep. Mary Franson appeared to compare the March for Our Lives demonstrators to the Hitler Youth over the weekend in a series of posts on her since-deleted Facebook page, according to The Star Tribune. On Tuesday, the Republican lawmaker denied linking the high schoolers to the Nazi youth group. She insisted her comments on high schoolers pushing for gun reform “were separate” from her post that included an Adolf Hitler quote and the “Indoctrinating Youth” webpage from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Franson published the Hitler quote 15 minutes after she shared a post calling Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg “Supreme Leader Hogg.” In another post, she claimed the March for Our Lives attendees wanted guns “gone.” Her entire Facebook page has since been removed after she “deleted the post to clear up any confusion,” she told the Tribune.
