(THE BLAZE) — An Arizona state representative appeared to compare President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler in a Monday Facebook post that’s drawing controversy.

“Someone is paying the National Park Service thugs overtime for their efforts to carry out the order of De Fuhrer… where are our Constitutional Sheriffs who can revoke the Park Service Rangers authority to arrest??? Do we have any Sheriffs with a pair?” state Rep. Brenda Barton (R) posted on Facebook Monday.

Fuhrer is a German term for leader, often associated with Hitler.

In a followup post, she said “The Chief Executive is being an Imperial President.”
