New Jersey Senate apologized to winner for comparisons between COVID-19 vaccine and Holocaust

Edward Durr, a trucker who unexpectedly won the state Senate seat representing New Jersey’s third legislative district in last week’s election, said he supported “the right of all to worship in any way they choose and to worship the God of God. your choice”.
“I’m a passionate guy and sometimes I say things in the heat of the moment,” Durr told the media, according to the Associated Press. “If I said things in the past that hurt someone’s feelings, I sincerely apologize.”

Durr had never run for office before defeating Stephen Sweeney, who served as president of the state Senate for more than 10 years, by 2,298 votes in last week’s election. Based on campaign finance presentations, Durr spent a total of $ 153 on his campaign to pay for Dunkin Donuts food and beverages, as well as flyers and business cards. Durr, a Republican and a Donald Trump fan, campaigned on a platform that opposed high taxes and promised voters to “end the one-party government” in New Jersey. The district that Durr will represent includes all of Salem County, as well as parts of Gloucester and Cumberland counties in the southern part of the state.

In posts on his Twitter account and Facebook page, Durr compared the vaccine mandates to the Holocaust, posting about the mandates with a photo of the yellow stars that Jews were forced to wear during the Holocaust and making Islamophobic comments.

“Mohammed was a pedophile! Islam is a false religion! Only fools follow Muslim teachings! It is a cult of hatred! “Durr wrote in a 2019 tweet.

Durr also said in a Facebook post that the Jan.6 attack on the Capitol was “an unauthorized entry by undocumented federal employers” rather than an attack by Trump supporters.

Durr’s Twitter account was deactivated and many of his Facebook posts were removed on Friday.
