Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) compared the Chinese government to Adolf Hitler during debate on an Energy and Water spending bill on Tuesday. The Congressman “offered an amendment that would prevent $7.5 million from being spent by the Department of Energy on a Clean Energy Resource Center in China” and proclaimed, “I’m opposed to cooperation with the Adolf Hitlers of our day, the people who are murdering Christians and other religious people as we speak. No, we should not be cooperating with that government in developing their technologies.”
