ICYMI: Regier Quotes Nazi Propagandist Joseph Goebbels
Republican Senator Keith Regier Quotes Joseph Goebbels in Defense of Anti-Trans Legislation
Helena, MT — On Tuesday, Republican Senator Keith Regier quoted the infamous Nazi Joseph Goebbels while he stood and repeated unscientific lies denying people’s very humanity. Quoting Goebbels, who used propagandist lies to justify and promote the Holocaust, has no place in civil discourse and absolutely no place on the floor of the Montana Senate.
In his comments Senator Regier shamelessly fueled hatred of trans people, attempting to deny that such people exist at all. These cruel comments promote lies and misinformation that serve only to deny people’s fundamental rights. Justifying this rhetoric by quoting a Nazi is simply unacceptable.
“We don’t do business with Nazi’s. Do Montana Republicans? It doesn’t appear they have taken issue with Sen. Regier crossing lines, aiming to infringe upon personal freedoms, and leading the spread of hatred against certain Montanans,” said Sandi Luckey, Executive Director of the Montana Democratic Party. “The rhetoric of barbaric murderers has no place in Montana.”
