Chances are pretty good if your representative compares the Parkland kids to Hitler Youth that your representative is in fact insane.

A Republican state lawmaker from Minnesota compared the March For Our Lives organizers to Hitler Youth in a series of now-deleted Facebook posts.

Rep. Mary Franson made three posts on the “Representative Mary Franson” Facebook page on Saturday, the same day that more than a million people marched nationwide to call for gun control.

The page has since been deleted, but Minneapolis’s City Pages shared screenshots of the posts taken by the Douglas County Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party.

Franson first shared another user’s post criticizing Florida shooting survivor David Hogg and referring to him as “Supreme Leader Hogg,” adding a raised-eyebrow emoji and the comment, “He’s the leader of the movement though.”

Supreme Leader? Hmm? What's that about, people wondered.

A few posts and minutes later she came out with this one.

Oh. Subtle.

As always, we encourage you to voice your displeasure directly to this horrible, horrible person.
