Hillary Clinton ‘clarifies’ comparing Putin to Hitler as ‘reminiscent’ of Nazi Germany

Hillary Clinton may have aspirations of a run for US President in 2016, but comparing Russia’s handling of the Ukraine crisis to Hitler and the Nazis may not have won her any fans.

Now she’s clarifying her comments when asked at an event at UCLA.

Clinton said she was not making a direct comparison although Russia’s actions were “reminiscent” of claims Germany made in the 1930s when the Nazis said they needed to protect German minorities in Poland and elsewhere in Europe.

“The claims by President Putin and other Russians that they had to go into Crimea and maybe further into eastern Ukraine because they had to protect the Russian minorities, that is reminiscent of claims that were made back in the 1930s when Germany under the Nazis kept talking about how they had to protect German minorities in Poland and Czechoslovakia and elsewhere throughout Europe,” she said.

The Press-Telegram of Long Beach quoted Clinton at a private fundraiser when she discussed the events, initially saying “Now if this sounds familiar, it’s what Hitler did back in the 30s…All the Germans that were, you know, the ethnic Germans, the Germans by ancestry who were in places like Czechoslovakia and Romania and other places, Hitler kept saying they’re not being treated right. I must go and protect my people, and that’s what’s gotten everybody so nervous,” she said.
