Clean Up Alabama quotes Hitler in July email

An Indiana chapter of Moms for Liberty came under fire nationally for using the same quote in a June newsletter.

In late June, The Indianapolis Star revealed the Hamilton County, Indiana, chapter of Moms for Liberty had included a quote from Adolf Hitler in its inaugural newsletter, prompting an eventual apology from the group after national news outlets picked up the story.

About a month later, Clean Up Alabama included that same Hitler quote in its own newsletter, which a source shared with APR.

The newsletter looked very similar to a public newsletter the group released on its public Facebook page Saturday following a meeting with officials about a proposed contract for services.

That email included these two paragraphs:

“The people pushing the sexualization of children are playing a long game.

“Those who hate traditional American values are working tirelessly to subvert our culture by targeting children, and we won’t stand for it.”

In the July 31 email shared with APR,  Clean Up Alabama’s Newsletter, the Hitler quote is inserted in the middle, in bold: “As Adolf Hitler said, ‘He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.'”

The apology from Hamilton chapter chair Paige Miller on the revised cover of the newsletter read:  “We condemn Adolf Hitler’s actions and his dark place in human history. We should not have quoted him in our newsletter and express our deepest apology.”

The first revision of the newsletter added a paragraph it described as “context” for the quote.

“The quote from a horrific leader should put parents on alert,” the update said. “If the government has control over our children today, they control our country’s future. We The People must be vigilant and protect children from an overreaching government.”
