'Textbook definition of projection': Jim Jordan slammed for ridiculously comparing the 'evil left' to Nazis
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is facing sharp criticism for his recent comparison of the "evil left" to Nazis.
During an appearance on Newsmax, the Republican lawmaker suggested that the left is a threat to the United States, claiming it supports evil practices that are synonymous with acts that took place during times of slavery, Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan, reports HuffPost.
“Every third generation in this country has had to do something big,” Jordan said.
“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,” he continued. “Three generations later, Lincoln and the Americans then held the country together, got rid of the evil of slavery. Three generations later, America defeated imperial Japan and Nazi Germany, the evils that those two ... countries represented and the greatest generation won that war.”
He added, “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's remarks quickly prompted backlash on Twitter, with one person describing his words as a “textbook definition of projection.”

"Jim Jordan said Liberals must be destroyed because they’re successors of 'Nazis,'" one Twitter user said, adding, "Trump read Mein Kampf to study Hitler’s strategy. His base is made up of proud boys & skinheads. Ron DeSantis is setting up a Gestapo. And Jim supports them all. Gym Jordan is an American Nazi."
Another user also highlighted the projection in Jordan's words saying, "If you wonder how projection works to expose someone's true nature, meet Jim Jordan. What he says about others is actually true about him: Liberals must be destroyed because they are successors to 'evils' of Nazis and slavery."

Another user wrote, "It's textbook 'projection to achieve deflection'. Their real power is the years of conditioning it takes for so many lost people to readily believe."

Jim Jordan gaslighting as usual; a common characteristic of a Nazi and a Slave Holder that are too cowardly to admit that they're wrong.pic.twitter.com/4SAvoJZhbI— Nikkita (@Nikkita) 1638858364
