Democratic politician Beto O’Rourke expressed concern on MSNBC Thursday that the United States could become Nazi Germany within 10 years, despite full democratic control of the White House and Congress

In “Morning Joe,” O’Rourke compared the efforts of former President Donald Trump and some Republican allies to reverse President Joe Biden’s electoral victory to the failed coup attempt of the Beer Hall Putsch by Adolf Hitler in 1923

“The proudest democracy on the planet will become a memory if we don’t fight for it right away,” said O’Rourke “So we shouldn’t be reassured that Joe Biden has taken the oath successfully, no comfort in the fact that the Congress seems to be functioning normallyThis thing is on a roll right now, and if you look at the brewery putsch in Germany, 1923, that was 10 years later, Hitler is chancellorWe are operating under the big lie right now in America We have to stop it It depends on all of us in this great democracy “

O’Rourke served three terms in the House of Representatives before launching a failed bid to oust Sen Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in 2018 He used the liberal fame of his narrow loss as a springboard to run for the presidency, but he never gained traction and dropped out of the Democratic primary battle in October 2019He pushed Biden to view Texas as a swing state in 2020, but Trump beat Biden by nearly six points there and improved his performance with Hispanic voters from 2016.

O’Rourke slammed Cruz for joining the Republican challenge for Electoral College certification in January, which preceded the deadly riot on Capitol Hill by a mob of Trump supporters on January 6 Cruz also echoed Trump’s unproven claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election

“When Ted Cruz helps incite this sedition, seeks to overturn a legally, legitimately and democratically decided election, he is equally guilty of the insurgency,” said O’Rourke

O’Rourke did not push back against rumors he would run for Texas governor in 2022, saying he was not thinking about it at the moment He used much of his appearance to castigate the Republican leadership for widespread blackouts of the state’s electricity grid after a snowstorm
