A Texas Republican is defending a tweet he sent out during the Democratic debates on Tuesday attacking Bernie Sanders and calling the Jewish presidential candidate a Nazi.

According to the Dallas Morning News, State Rep. Jason Villalba said it was “ridiculous” to say he compared the Democratic party to the fascist dictator party responsible for the 20th century’s most well-known massacre of Jewish people.

“It’s perfectly accurate, ” he told the News. “I was in no way making a comparison to the current Democratic Party and Nazis. If they want to read it that way, then that’s their prerogative. That’s not what the intent is.”

The tweet bore an image that reads, “That awkward moment when… 1. Bernie Sanders admits he’s a democratic socialist 2. Nazis were democratic socialists 3. America fought an entire world war to stop the advance of democratic socialists. Sincerely, sane Americans.”
