Pennsylvania Rep. Danielle Friel Otten ‏(D-Southeast PA) took demagoguery to a new low yesterday as she trashed organized labor—pipeline workers—as Nazis!

Yesterday, state Rep. Danielle Friel Otten took to Twitter to compare hardworking pipeline construction employees who are building a lawfully permitted project to “Nazis.”  Her tweet is offered below, along with the screen shot.

Here are the first two in a series of 14 tweets and pictures from the Pennsylvania Alliance for Energy (@PAllies4Energy) to which Rep. Danielle Friel Otten ‏(@Danielle_4PA) responded:

And, here is how Rep. Danielle Friel Otten responded:

There are many ways to protest a pipeline — even pipelines that have been lawfully permitted — but to liken hardworking construction workers to ‘Nazis’ reaches the deepest depths of indecency. Rep. Friel Otten’s tasteless tweet is not only unbecoming of the office she holds and an insult to the men and women who work hard to bring energy to homes across the state, it wholly minimizes the horrors and suffering that the Nazis executed upon millions of people.  Her characterization is unfair, unfounded, and unconscionable.

Editor’s Note: The Pennsylvania Alliance for Energy is a coalition of consumers, industry and organized labor. Its tweet was intended to call attention to the fact a State Representative by the name of Danielle Friel Otten was engaged in trying to stop pipeline workers from doing their jobs, ignoring safety warning in the process. Her response was to engage in a vile insult to all laborers and decent people who simply want to feed their families while helping to supply the energy and resources this country needs.

It’s clear where Danielle Friel Otten’s priorities are and they’re far from the needs of ordinary Americans. No, she’s decided appeasing the wealthy Food & Water Watch gang and NIMBYs is far more important. And, there are no bounds to what she’ll do or say to advance their interests over those of the common man and woman.

  1. thank you, Honorable Danielle Friel Otten;
    Not all jobs are moral, ethical or sacred.
    Men and women need to consider this.
    Any job that harms life and the environment is
    not ethical and needs to be protested, avoided,
    abandoned.

    those who held jobs during Nazi era that harmed people are still being brought to courts in Germany and tried and found guilty and jailed.

    This is a serious consideration.
    Do no harm.

    Pipeline construction has done harm all over Pa. and been fined and violated numerous times.

  2. Her oath: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support, obey and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of this Commonwealth and that I will discharge the duties of my office with fidelity.” … Any person refusing to take the oath or affirmation shall forfeit his office.

    Time for here to go. Her district is the classic definition of “gerrymander”. Maybe that can be fixed.

  3. The ignorance of an elected person is staggering. Obviously she had no idea what a Nazi means. The left throws all these denigrating words around like popcorn and just reinforces how ignorant and stupid they are.
