Rep. Jennifer Wexton (D-VA10): “Comparing abortion to the horrors of the Nazis’ atrocities against Jewish people is a disgusting and deeply offensive comment from my opponent—and an outrageous lie.”

"Disgraceful...Every single elected official should condemn this."

See below for reactions to VA10 Republican nominee Hung Cao’s latest insane/extremist comments. As reported by the WaPo:

  • “In video of Cao speaking about his stances on abortion at a May campaign event, provided to The Washington Post via a YouTube link, Cao inaccurately said that ‘under Governor Northam, they allow abortion all the way up to birth or even post-birth.’ Late-term abortion is illegal in Virginia unless the mother’s life is in danger; killing infants after delivery is also illegal.”
  • “Then Cao went further: ‘The Nazis did this. They’ll take Jewish babies and just take the legs and just smash the babies and kill them. You think that can’t happen in this country?’ He didn’t respond to questions this week about the comments.”

A few responses to this disgusting, unacceptable rhetoric include:

  • Rep. Jennifer Wexton (D-VA10): “Comparing abortion to the horrors of the Nazis’ atrocities against Jewish people is a disgusting and deeply offensive comment from my opponent—and an outrageous lie.”
  • Rep. Elaine Luria (D-VA02): “Disgraceful that a fellow Virginian and Naval Academy graduate would make such comparisons. Every single elected official should condemn this.”
  • VA Democrats: “Hung Cao compares reproductive healthcare to the atrocities of the Holocaust. ‘The Nazis did this. They’ll take Jewish babies and just take the legs and just smash the babies and kill them.’ This is beyond offensive.”
  • Prince William County Democrats: “This is beyond repulsive and disqualifies Hung Cao.”

Of course, Cao has made numerous comments that should automatically disqualify him from holding any public office. For instance, his unhinged climate science denial  (“I believe in god and…why we have a rainbow is because that’s god’s covenant to us…he’ll never wipe out the world again, so it’s kind of arrogant for us to believe we can we can destroy god’s creation”); his COVID science denial and quackery; his “Big Lie” rhetoric regarding the 2020 presidential election; etc. The fact that Republicans actually nominated this guy (let alone that Glenn Youngkin endorsed him!) tells you everything you know about that party. Do NOT vote for it under any circumstances, and make sure you vote Democratic (including for Rep. Jennifer Wexton in VA10 this fall!) up and down the ballot in every election!
