Former Gov. Martin O’Malley asserted President-elect Donald Trump is an evil man on par with the Nazis and the KKK on Twitter Saturday night, and said he would “fight.”
“Now is not the time for reconciliation,” the failed Democratic presidential candidate tweeted. “Dietrich Bonhoeffer didn’t reconcile with the Nazis. MLK didn’t reconcile with the KKK. Now we fight”
O’Malley’s tweet is part of what appears to be a Democrat campaign to delegitimize Trump’s win, undermine his presidency and encourage anyone who will listen not to accept the results of the election. Democrat Rep. John Lewis said he does not see Trump as a “legitimate” president Friday, because the Russians rigged the election and rendered the result unfair and undemocratic. Others tried to invalidate the electoral college vote on the grounds of Russian interference and alleged voter fraud.
The initial reaction to O’Malley’s tweet wasn’t exactly positive.
“you are deranged and a punk,” one user replied.
“You’re such an adult!” another said.
“ummm … who are we fighting that are as evil as the Nazis?” someone else tweeted.
And another: “You are truly delusional”
“Are you out of your mind?” another user tweeted. “Comparing Trump and his supporters to Nazis damages your side significantly more than his.”
Someone else asked O’Malley whether he was proposing violence.
“Have you lost your fucking mind?” another user tweeted at O’Malley.
“Comparing Trump and his supporters to the KKK and Nazis? You will continue to lose.”
