Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) outright slandered liberals over the weekend by comparing them to slave owners and Nazis, remarks that will likely incite further violence from conservatives.
Jordan is a proponent of the big lie that the 2020 Election was “stolen” from Donald Trump because Democrats somehow rigged the vote for President Joe Biden. Of course, there is not a single shred of evidence to prove such an outrageous claim. But Trump and the GOP used the lie to incite violence from right-wingers on January 6th when they stormed the Capitol in a bid to overthrow democracy.
Now Jordan is using the same rhetoric, only he is lacing it with other lies to gin up conservatives.
“Every third generation in this country has had to do something big,” Jordan said on Newsmax. “You think about the Founders and what they did when they declared why we’re going to be an independent country, what they had to overcome, the greatest military in the world. They did it.”
“Three generations later, Lincoln and the Americans then held the country together, got rid of the evil of slavery,” he continued. “Three generations later, we defeated imperial Japan and Nazi Germany, the evils that those two countries represented and the greatest generation won that war.”
“Here we are three generations later and the assault is from the radical left,” Jordan concluded. “We have to step forward and do our part like previous generations of Americans have done. I think we’re up to the task.”

Jordan is literally calling upon conservatives to pick up guns and wage war against liberals. Because violence is what it took to free the slaves and violence is what it took to defeat the Nazis. The problem with Jordan’s comparison is that liberals were the ones who fought to end slavery and they were the ones who declared war on the Nazis and Imperial Japan. Meanwhile, conservatives sided with the Confederacy during the Civil War. And there are literal Nazis in the Republican Party, which also whines whenever a Confederate monument is taken down. Oh, and let’s not forget the many Republicans who have claimed that slavery was a good thing.
Furthermore, conservatives are the ones who tried to overthrow democracy on January 6th, not liberals.
This is a classic case of projection by Jordan, and his remarks are going to get people killed. But that’s the whole point of his rhetoric and lies. He wants bloodshed. He wanted it on January 6th and he wants more of it.
