White House Press Secretary Apologises For Claiming Hitler Didn't Use Chemical Weapons





NBC: White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer Apologizes After Causing Uproar With Hitler Gaffe

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer apologized Tuesday evening after causing a firestorm for saying that Adolf Hitler "didn't even sink to using chemical weapons" against his own people like Syrian strongman Bashar Al-Assad.

Spicer, speaking from the White House podium at the daily press briefing, said that Hitler, whom he called "despicable," did not use "the gas on his own people the same way Assad used them."

He sought to clarify his remarks in three separate follow-up statements — which did little to help — and then provided a full-blown apology.

"To draw any kind of comparison to the Holocaust was inappropriate and insensitive," he told NBC News.

WNU Editor: He apologised for being stupid .... he was not thinking of the camps .... and granted, his clarification was even more discombobulated. But there are more important stories out there than this one .... time to move on.

"But there are more important stories out there than this one .... time to move on."

Yes, and no, given the alt-right in the WhiteSupremacy House.

Lying Spice didn't misspeak.

Jay,

Four things that to sell aren't coming back.

1.) Nazi Germany
2.) Imperial Japan
3,) The Soviet Union
4.) White supremacy in the United States

Mr. Spicer misspoke because his boss acted hastily and he has the unenviable task of trying to sell something they never thought through how to sell it,

I might add we STILL don't know who actually carried out the attacks.

I meant "4 things that aren't coming back." The thoughts ran together I apologize.

LMFAO,

There is this funny thing that often happens to professional liars and amateur ones when they have to go off script,

They often blurt out what they really believe,

So let's see, Hitler didn't use chemical weapons '
On his own people,
And of course, "Holocaust Centers",

Sound's like Lying Spice is a Holocaust denier.

He might wrll be a Holocaust denier. Frankly such a remark as he made should get him fired and probably would any where else. Regardless of what Mr. Spicer is or isn't white supremacy in America isn't coming back.

The same applies for Germany, Russia, and Japan. Certain individuals in those countries perhaps even some influential ones may want to bring back Nazi Germany, The Soviet Union , and Imperial Japan. They aren't coming back either.

I listened to the video. Either Mr. Spicer is a special kind of stupid or a special kind of evil. Hopefully it's a special kind of dtupid. Stupid can learn and improve. Generally evil can't be fixed.

Everyone knows what he meant, is lethal injection in u.s classed as a weapon?
Holocaust was vile and disguisting but he was reffering to hitler dropping gas shells etc aka ww1 and making the point that even the most vile dictators moved on from that as a battlefield weapon long ago.

The funny thing is Hitler didn't use chemical weapons, other than the what was used in the camps, but the British planned and prepared to use Chemical Weapons on German troops if they invaded in the summer of 1940. The concern that the the world is showing is all Theater, the vast majority of people want the slaughter to stop but only as long as they don't have actually do anything themselves, the rest the Do-Gooders and Crusaders try and spin the slaughter to promote their agenda. The hypocrisy and BS just piles up.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_John_Harvey

SS John Harvey was a U.S. World War II Liberty ship. This ship is most well known for carrying a secret cargo of mustard gas and whose sinking by German aircraft in December 1943 at the port of Bari in south Italy caused an unintentional release of chemical weapons.

"One of the destroyed vessels—the U.S. Liberty ship John Harvey—had been carrying a secret cargo of 2000 M47A1 mustard gas bombs, each holding 60–70 lb (27–32 kg) of the agent. According to Royal Navy historian Stephen Roskill, this cargo had been sent to Europe for potential retaliatory use if Germany carried out its threatened use of chemical warfare in Italy.[27] The destruction of John Harvey caused liquid sulfur mustard from the bombs to spill into waters already contaminated by oil from the other damaged vessels. The many sailors who had abandoned their ships into the water became covered with this oily mixture which provided an ideal solvent for the sulfur mustard. Some mustard evaporated and mingled with the clouds of smoke and flame.[4] The wounded were pulled from the water and sent to medical facilities whose personnel were unaware of the mustard gas. Medical staff focused on personnel with blast or fire injuries and little attention was given to those merely covered with oil.[28] Many injuries caused by prolonged exposure to low concentrations of mustard might have been reduced by bathing or a change of clothes.[29]

Within a day, the first symptoms of mustard poisoning had appeared in 628 patients and medical staff, with symptoms including blindness and chemical burns. This puzzling development was further complicated by the arrival of hundreds of Italian civilians also seeking treatment, who had been poisoned by a cloud of sulfur mustard vapor that had blown over the city when some of John Harvey's cargo exploded. As the medical crisis worsened, little information was available about what was causing these symptoms, as the U.S. military command wanted to keep the presence of chemical munitions secret from the Germans.[30] Nearly all crewmen of John Harvey had been killed, and were unavailable to explain the cause of the "garlic-like" odor noted by rescue personnel.[28]"

"The Nazis did use chemical weapons in combat on several occasions along the Black Sea, notably in Sevastopol, where they used toxic smoke to force Russian resistance fighters out of caverns below the city, in violation of the 1925 Geneva Protocol.[39] The Nazis also used asphyxiating gas in the catacombs of Odessa in November 1941, following their capture of the city, and in late May 1942 during the Battle of the Kerch Peninsula in eastern Crimea.[39] Victor Israelyan, a Soviet ambassador, reported that the latter incident was perpetrated by the Wehrmacht's Chemical Forces and organized by a special detail of SS troops with the help of a field engineer battalion. Chemical Forces General Ochsner reported to German command in June 1942 that a chemical unit had taken part in the battle.[40] After the battle in mid-May 1942, roughly 3,000 Red Army soldiers and Soviet civilians not evacuated by sea were besieged in a series of caves and tunnels in the nearby Adzhimuskai quarry. After holding out for approximately three months, "poison gas was released into the tunnels, killing all but a few score of the Soviet defenders."[41] Thousands of those killed around Adzhimushk were documented to have been killed by asphyxiation from gas.[40]"

the Nazi's also used poison gas in the Battle of Wasaw in 1944
