RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A Republican candidate for the North Carolina state Senate is comparing Democrats to Nazis, roaches and a sitcom character.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports former Durham County sheriff's deputy Rickey Padgett is challenging incumbent Democrat Mike Woodard.

On Twitter, Padgett's posted in January an image depicting U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer in Nazi uniforms with the words "Chuck's SS anti Trump unit."

. . .

A February 2017 tweet features Sen. Elizabeth Warren labeled as a cartoon roach which says "Come on Pelosi and you Democrat cock roaches, Trump is on the way!"

His district is historically blue, but a North Carolina Republican is running for state Senate while comparing Democrats to Nazis, roaches and a "mean" TV character.

Rickey Padgett, a former deputy in the Durham County Sheriff's Office, is running against incumbent Democrat Mike Woodard. Woodard, an administrator at Duke University, is seeking his fourth term in office this fall as Democrats try to break the Republican supermajority in the legislature.

Padgett is running on "common sense leadership" and has decried a "war on police." He's an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump who once referred to conservative radio show host Joe Walsh as a "deep state Democrat."

On Twitter, his account hurls insults at U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters as well as Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. He defended the tweets on Tuesday, telling The News & Observer "I am not your politically correct candidate."

6. Sure..

Democrats are like Nazis..

But those dirtbags who actually waved Nazi flags and chanted Nazi slogans in places like Charlottesville are just some very fine people.

GTFO with that nonsense

Expecting this turd to get flushed in his election bid.

13. Put down your beer and pick up a history book, dumbass.

(I just looked up the word "dumbass" in the Urban Dictionary to see how it is spelled and it defined "dumbass" as "Someone who looks up the word "dumbass" in a dictionary."

15. Trump "emboldened" the Nazis

Trump "emboldened" the Nazis

America fought a war against the Nazis and supposedly won.

Yet here they are marching to "take back America".

" Michael Von Kotch, a Pennsylvania resident who called himself a Nazi, said the rally made him "proud to be white."

He said that he's long held white supremacist views and that Trump's election has "emboldened" him and the members of his own Nazi group. "
