“In town hall meetings, the Republican governor has chided Camden’s police and fire unions for being unwilling to give up perks such as paid birthdays off. But, Williamson said, his members have never been paid for birthdays off.Williamson did not say it directly, but he cited an historical figure to imply that the countywide plan is part of a larger plot to dismantle public employee unions in New Jersey.“‘We must close union offices, confiscate their money and put their leaders in prison. We must reduce workers’ salaries and take away their right to strike,’” he read aloud.“That was said on May 2, 1933, and the person who said it was Adolf Hitler.”Asked if he was actually comparing Gov. Christie to Hitler, Williamson said, “I’m just looking at the parallel, at what’s happening across the country, and the vicious attacks that have been launched against police and fire and teachers unions.”
