Disgusting DEMOCRAT Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) Says GOP Like Goebbels, Nazis in Health Care Debate

“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, and eventually, people believe it. Like blood libel. That’s the same kind of thing, blood libel. That’s the same kind of thing,” Cohen said. “The Germans said enough about the Jews and people believed it – -believed it and you have the Holocaust. We heard on this floor, government takeover of health care. Politifact said the biggest lie of 2010 was a government takeover of health care because there is no government takeover.”

Rep. Steve Cohen stands by ‘Nazi’ comments

Daily Caller

Tennessee Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen stood by comments he made on the House floor late Tuesday night in which he used a Nazi comparison to discuss Republicans who call the health care law a “government takeover,” but insisted he was making a point about lying, not trying to insinuate that Republicans were Nazis.

“It wasn’t about Nazis, it was about lies,” Cohen told The Daily Caller Wednesday. “The biggest liar, the biggest political liar was Goebbels. Politifact called this the biggest lie of the year. If you don’t stand up and say lies are lies, they stand for the truth. Somebody has to come out and say they’re lies. Politifact did and I cited Politifact. I have no problem with that.”


Wild Thing's comment........

You want a nazi comparison?

Try the way the democrats passed Obamacare. THAT was classic nazi tactics right there.

Cohen was endorsed by anti-Israel PAC, J Street.

After his aide hung up on me, I sent him a fax. Believe me, it wasn't pretty but thats what I do and how I do it. If no one lets these dickheads know how we feel then they will continue to lecture to us.

Screw that, there will be no surrender nor civility at my end until they change.

Edward Bernays. Was the Propaganda minister of the Wilson regime. It is said Goebbles had his book in his library. The Nazi's got their information from Bernays, Sanger and a few others... in other words that PR is Democrat in nature.

Being a Democrat, Congressman Cohen would know a lot about propaganda.

Eddie, that is fantastic what you did.

Mark, thank you for sharing that information. I didn't know that.

Tom, he sure would, they are experts at propaganda.
