FB Posts Show ND Senator Repeatedly Compared Gays to Nazis

State Sen. Janne Myrdal (R-Edinburg)

When we pointed out this week that State Sen. Janne Myrdal shared an image of a gay pride rainbow flag emblazoned with a swastika, she quickly deleted it and claimed it was an accident.

“Recently I posted a story on my personal Facebook wall that had an image attached to the link that I was unaware of; I have since deleted it,” Myrdal, a Republican from Edinburg, said in statement. “As a daughter of a family that suffered under the said image, I deplore this image and I would never post this image on purpose.”

Myrdal claims that because her family suffered during the Nazi occupation of Norway, she would never use Nazi imagery so flippantly. Yet her social media history proves otherwise. A tipster shared with Mean Read several screenshots from Myrdal’s personal Facebook page which show that she compared gay people to Nazis, or fascists, on multiple occasions.

In 2014, for example, she posted a picture of a lipstick-wearing Hitler in pink clothing. The photo accompanied an article titled, “Why Are They Called ‘Homofascists’? Here’s Why…”


In 2015, she shared two articles about “fascist” LGBT activists and “fascist gay bullies.” Both articles cited radio host Tammy Bruce, who Myrdal admires.



Under one of the posts, Myrdal writes, “This is why I have high regard for Tammy!!”

Also in 2015, Myrdal shared a story titled, “A Warning From Canada: Same-Sex Marriage Erodes Fundamental Rights.” The article claims that “Americans need to understand that the endgame of the LGBT rights movement involves centralized state power — and the end of First Amendment freedom.”

Myrdal commented on the story: “Most European nations will say the same as they hv been there done that.” We’re not sure what she means by this. We have reached out to Myrdal for comment, and will update with any response.


We have also requested comment from ND GOP Chairman Kelly Armstrong and Republican Senate Majority Leader Rich Wardner.

  1. Wow what a sick demented animal you are Janne. You are worse than garbage.

  2. I can not believe you could post something like this on your Facebook page or any where so disgusting. A mistake really? It discussed me to think a person who is suppose to be in office can call that a mistake and think we all are suppose to except that! It is not that easy. I am so sick of people like you thinking you have the power to judge people for who they are. No matter who we are we are human, we love who we love no matter what color what race and what sex we are. You apparently posted more then then just this flag on your site against gays. No I am gay but I have a lot of friends and loved ones who are and are loved no matter what. You see we don’t see color, gender sexual orientation when you love that person. I don’t know how you were brought up but I was brought up much better
    So woman you do not get my vote! I just wished all you haters would just leave the USA so we could all come together as one and stop being devided by people like you who think you have the right to judge good people you don’t even know!
