Media Matters reports:
Salem Radio Network host Sebastian Gorka referenced the ahistorical claim that Adolf Hitler used gun regulation to carry out the Holocaust while appearing on a Sinclair Broadcast Group show devoted to the recent mass shootings in El Paso, TX, and Dayton, OH.
Two years ago, Gorka, a Sinclair contributor and former White House aide, wore a medal referencing “a historically Nazi-aligned Hungarian group called the Vitezi Rend” during an inaugural ball.
During a panel discussion about the prior week’s public massacres, Gorka said that the “Second Amendment isn’t about hunting” before saying that “there’s a reason that in Venezuela five years ago they took away private gun ownership” and that “Hitler did it” as well. Gorka said that his claims are not theories, but rather, “It’s history.”
