Multi-millionaire puppet master of wealthy independents attempting to tear down the Liberal Party ‘compares popular ex-PM John Howard to NAZI DOCTOR’ who tortured Jews: ‘An absolute disgrace’

  • Green activist Simon Holmes à Court compared former PM to Josef Mengele
  • Mr Holmes à Court has been called ‘an absolute disgrace’ for his comment 
  • Sydney Jewish woman said ‘God forgive them for what they have stooped to’

A prominent multimillionaire has been slammed by Holocaust survivors after he appeared to compare former Liberal Prime Minister John Howard to the Nazi doctor who tortured Jews. 

Simon Holmes à Court, who is funding the so-called ‘Teal’ independents challenging moderate Liberals in wealthy Sydney and Melbourne seats tweeted on Wednesday: ‘@LiberalAus’s ‘angel of death’ — John Howard — is expected at #KooyongVotes prepoll any moment.’

‘Angel of Death’ was the nickname given to Josef Mengele, who performed deadly experiments on prisoners at the Auschwitz concentration camp during World War II.

A Jewish woman in Sydney called Ziva, whose grandparents were murdered by the Nazis, said  ‘God forgive them for what they have stooped to,’ in reference to Mr Holmes à Court.

Mr Holmes à Court is financing the so-called ‘teal independent’ candidates hoping to win seats off Liberal incumbents.

Ray Hadley on radio station 2GB called out the Climate 200 founder for his comment.

‘I know there’s a lot of dirty things being said in the election but I think I’ve just found the dirtiest.

‘[Simon Holmes à Court,] you are an absolute disgrace,’ Hadley said. 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Mr Holmes à Court seeking comment for this story.
