NEW VIDEO: Gershon Says He Decided to Run Against Lee Zeldin Because of the Parallels Between Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler in Nazi, Germany NEW VIDEO: Gershon Says He Decided to Run Against Lee Zeldin Because of the Parallels Between Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler in Nazi, Germany Port Jefferson Station, N.Y. – Zeldin for Congress released the following statement after The Hill last night posted a new video where Perry Gershon, Democratic Party opponent of Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1), declares that he decided to run for Congress against Lee Zeldin, because of the parallels between Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler in Nazi, Germany: “Park Avenue Perry says he registered to vote in NY-1 to run for Congress against Congressman Zeldin, because in his mind Trump is Hitler. The only thing Adolf Hitler, the Nazis, and Holocaust should be compared to is Adolf Hitler, the Nazis, and Holocaust. Any other spin is a disgusting insult to all victims and other individuals and families so personally and deeply impacted by the horrors of Hitler, the Nazis, and Holocaust. Gershon should be substantially more educated and sympathetic on this disgusting comparison. It is appalling to compare the rise of President Trump to the rise of Adolf Hitler, the leader of the Nazi Party who ordered the systematic killing of millions of Jewish people and other innocent people. This is the type of unhinged rhetoric that should disqualify Gershon from running for any office from his local Community Board in Manhattan to Congress at his second home 100 miles east.” View Congressman Zeldin’s Facebook post here. Congressman Zeldin also posted the following Tweet as well, which can be viewed here: “My opponent says he decided to run against me bc of his comparison of Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler of Nazi, Germany, who murdered millions of Jews & other people. This craziness is unhinged and disgusting.” ### Congressman Lee Zeldin will appear on the November ballot on the Republican, Independence, Conservative, and Reform Party lines.
