Rep. Sara Hannan (D-Juneau) tweeted out an apology one day after giving an offensive speech on the House Floor which suggested that she thought Nazi experimentation on Jews yielded beneficial scientific results.

“I apologize for the words that I used on the House Floor yesterday,” Hannan stated Sept. 12 on both Facebook and Twitter. “I did not mean to imply any support for NAZIs nor their experimentation in any way. My remarks were incorrect, insensitive and hurtful. I am sorry and will strive to do better.”

In what appeared to be an attempt to defend COVID vaccine science, Hannan spoke during the House Floor session on Sept. 11 about the merits of the scientific method. Her speech quickly devolved, however, as she proceeded to assert that Nazi science brought about some lasting benefits for the world.

“If we go back to the Nuremberg Code and look at some of the experiments conducted by the Nazis and know that there were violations of human dignity, of scientific methodology, yet they produced results,” Hannan claimed.

She then mentioned the late Dr. William Mills.

“A very famous Alaskan doctor – Dr. Mills – who was an expert – word-renown – on frostbite and survival, frequently told that he came to that research as a young doctor [by] looking at science that was conducted on humans, and knowing that it was done in these horrific conditions, yet knowing that it could still benefit us to look at the results of that,” Hannan said. “And he became this renowned expert on frostbite, knowing that the science was developed by the Nazis – was horrifically done on people who were not voluntary scientific experiments, subjected to conditions where they were placed – where body parts were freezed and they were broken off”

Hannon then tried to undermine the fact that COVID shots are still considered experimental.

“But when we call something an experiment, without knowing the science behind it, it’s just political rhetoric,” she said. “Science is conducted in controlled environments, and right now in the 21st century, the scientific developments that are happening are sort of beyond the ability of some of us old folks to even recognize – how quickly we can get results and change and adapt. And as we’ve lived through this pandemic for the last year and a half – approaching two years – we know the science is directing changes and outcomes all the time.”

Hannan ended her speech by telling her fellow lawmakers to “understand the scientific method behind things before you question whether it was science or an experiment.”

    Anything Hannon says will bury her worse. “Nazi Fauci” has shown a lack of conscience with the number of deaths he has caused globally by funding the bacterial warfare through AIH and being complicit in the global pandemic that has taken place and continues. Fauci continues to block the access to people of the vital medications that work. He uses the CDC as a cover and has lied to Congress concerning his involvement. He still feels no remorse. Hannon seems to feel no remorse over the hideous work of Mengele in Nazi Germany. Mengele ordered doctors to just kill the victims so he could make a study of the organs in autopsy for his research. What is Nazi Fauci’s goal?

    In addition, Jeffrey Noebbels was Hitler’s propaganda minister who was a godless genius who convinced the German people that the Nazis were no threat. Who is America’s propaganda minister. This person(s) is convincing Americans that Biden and his handlers, the group behind him, are no threat to America but that Trump was a threat to America. Who is doing this? Obama?, Hillary? union bosses out of Chicago, flag burners of the 60s? All of these possibles including Xi of China hate America but who is the smooth false script writer?

  • Ruth Ewig says:

    History does provide parallels between this civil war we are in and Nazi Germany. But true history is no longer taught keeping us from learning from the past. Our God who created us would not approve of Hannon’s evaluation and conclusions.

    • Evan S Singh says:

      If your god doesn’t approve of what Hannon said, why did he allow her to say it? And how do you know what your god thinks?

        It’s obvious that you aren’t a Christian…or have any understanding of it!! Research!!

      • Lobo says:

        Apparently, you know little regarding approval, vs disallowal. To answer your question, whether you believe in the holy scriptures, or not, try reading the Holy Bible, and see that God doesn’t typically prevent someone from saying something simply because he disapproves of the person’s speech. You are allowed to drown by virtue of your own anchor.

      • Evan S Singhh says:

        Not a christian. I’m a devotee of evidenced-based thinking which stands opposite of faith.

        It’s called free will dummy. You do understand the basic premises of liberty don’t you?

    Do you believe in radio waves, x-rays, or the law of gravity? Why?

  • Jen says:

    So she is an elect white woman so the Democrat Party feels they can chastise her behind the scenes, but not chastise Rep. Omar for her continual anti-semitic remarks? I think Democrat Party staff are scared of its brown skinned representatives than white representatives.
    They will lose their party power and control in the same way the Republicans will lose theirs for lacking unity and consistency.
    Everything in this has a season and time limit when it lives.

  • G Aleution says:

    The gentility is very genteel indeed. However, tyranny is grotesque to all and the law speaks with one mouth to all.

  • Michael says:

    Does Rep. Hannan realize that adhering to the scientific method is a philosophical approach? In fact, experimentation is used in the scientific method. Separating the two discounts the science of the experiment. The virus and the vaccine have not been evaluated long enough to come to any foregone conclusions. Therefore, it is still in the experimental stage.

  • Michael S Totten says:

    All government officials on both sides need to be fired. Why are we paying these idiots. I still haven’t seen one of them put a moose on my table. What do they really do that the rest of you can’t do for yourselves inside your own communities. All government reps are just tax sucking parasites

  • EscapedAnchorage says:

    Fake apology is as fake apology does. She meant what she said the first time. She didn’t want to be heckled anymore. Do us a favor Juneau, keep heckling this trash until she leaves office.

  • AK49 says:

    Hannan is a bad Alaskan.

  • NP Adam says:

    No, doesn’t work like that. It’s obvious you believe the ends justify the means. You just wish it didn’t come out like that.

  • Alexander Dolitsky says:

    My friend from Southeast Alaska, in our private correspondence, wrote the following:
    “Not at all surprising, given that she is a Democrat politician. Same goes on at the national level with Jewish leaders and the Democrats. So, you need to ask yourself, what is the basis for the continuing alliance of the Jews with the Democrats. Is it just a historic thing? Or is there something continuing? And what was the historic connection to begin with? Maybe you already know the answer to that one; I don’t. But the Democrats, especially the far-left side, are not only turning their backs on the Jews today (both American and Israel), but are actively accusing them of being racists and intolerant of Palestinians and Arabs. The left is overtly active in trying to cut all American aid and support of Israel and shift it to the Palestinians instead. Even “centrist” Democrats are embracing Islam and are silent on the anti-Jew/Israel demands from the left. If I were a Jew, I’d certainly wonder about what’s going on and why; and I’d certainly question my being a Democrat if that’s what I was.”

    Much ado about nothing !! And I’m surprised the Watchman is even wasting time on this miniscule statement. But … if it sells a story!! Everyone knows the “Nazi” label is used interchangeably by conservatives and liberals to hang a meaningless but provocative “red flag” on whoever they seek to label for usually underhanded reasons!! Research is research no matter how it’s gained!! Let it go already!! The lady was obviously confused from the beginning but who among us has not been!!
