Dallas News: Texas lawmaker shares Facebook meme connecting gun control protesters to Holocaust victims

March 27, 2018

A Houston-area state representative linked gun control advocates to Holocaust victims on Monday with a meme that appeared to blame gun control for the genocide of 6 million Jews during World War II.

Republican Valoree Swanson shared a Facebook post Monday from the Ted Cruz Meme Page. She did not add a comment to the post, which showed two photos. The first was from March 13, when 7,000 pairs of shoes were left at the U.S. Capitol to represent the children who have died from gunshot wounds since the Sandy Hook shooting in 2012. It was captioned: “Shoes left by gun control supporters, 2018.”
