Republican candidate says ‘Hitler is the kind of leader we need today’

A Republican House candidate has praised German dictator Hitler as the ‘ kind of leader we need today’

 Republican congressional hopeful Carl P. Paladino told a WBEN Radio program last year that he had listened to a recent broadcast about “Adolf Hitler and how he aroused the crowds.”

“And he would get up there screaming these epithets and these people were just – they were hypnotized by him,” Paladino told WBEN host Peter Hunt on Feb. 13, 2021. “That’s, I guess, I guess that’s the kind of leader we need today. We need somebody inspirational. We need somebody that is a doer, has been there and done it.”

Carl P. Paladino told The Buffalo News Thursday he believes the German people “just got in line” behind Hitler before and during World War II because of the “pretty intense following he developed.”

Carl P. Paladino is now insisting that he didn’t mean to praise Hitler

“Hitler was a very popular person; the popularity was something we never saw in America,” he told The News on Thursday. “That had nothing to do with praising him. You look for someone to move an entire population. I was just using that as an example.”

“I should have used Churchill,” he said
