So it didn’t take long before a dumbass Democrat made himself and the party look like hypocrites. Representative Steve Cohen from Tennessee referred to the Republicans “lies” concerning Health Care Reform aka Affordable Care Act as Nazi propaganda; the type of propaganda that led to the Holocaust.
WTH is wrong with this guy?
With all the talk of civility what sense does it make to compare Republicans to the Nazis? As Democrats we cannot stand on a soap box and call out Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin for their recklessness… and then turn around and act just as reckless!
They say it’s a government takeover of health care, a big lie just like Goebbels. . . . You say it enough, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie and eventually, people believe it. Like blood libel. That’s the same kind of thing. . . . The Germans said enough about the Jews and the people believed it and you had the Holocaust. You tell a lie over and over again. And we’ve heard on this floor, government takeover of health care
This is the kind of nonsense Democrats need to stay away, stick with the facts and outlandish examples like this is unnecessary. I hope Democrats leaders come out and condemn the words of Cohen; actually they better if they want the American people to take them seriously.
And Cohen definitely needs to apologizes as well….
“Anderson let me say this, I won’t say it again, but I was right…” – Steve Cohen
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
