A Republican candidate for Congress received a flurry of criticism on Monday after she compared President Barack Obama to mass-murdering dictators.
“Beware of people who rose meteorically from nowhere like Obama. His agenda has been carefully planned 4 him!!!” Marisha Agana wrote Sunday on Twitter. “History has a way of repeating itself: Stalin , Hitler, Mao Tse Tung and now Obama!!!”
After being subject to a slew of critical replies, Agana clarified that she was talking about Obama’s “pro-abortion stance” and urged people to view her Facebook post on the subject.
In her post, Agana explained that she was a pediatrician and avid opponent of abortion.
“I know life begins at conception and therefore those yet to be born are actually living human beings and should be taken care of not killed,” she wrote. “Because of this and the position Mr. Barrack Hussain Obama [sic] has taken on abortion directly as well as the use of Obamacare to provide contraception and abortifacient drugs I feel it is proper and important to have included him on the list I tweeted about.”
Agana is running against incumbent Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan in Ohio’s newly drawn Congressional District 13. The single-mother of three children was born in the Philippines under the dictatorial Marcos regime and immigrated to the United States in 1987, according to her campaign website.
