Say What? Democrat Compares Republicans to Nazis (More of that Obama Civility At Work!)
ABC News ^ | 01/19/11

Posted on 01/19/2011 11:52:54 AM PST by MissesBush

ABC News Jonathan Karl reports: The newfound civility didn’t last long. Political rhetoric in Congress doesn’t get much nastier than the words of one House Democrat during the debate on repealing the health care law.

In an extraordinary outburst on the House floor, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) invoked the Holocaust to attack Republicans on health care and compared rhetoric on the issue to the work of infamous Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.

“They say it's a government takeover of health care, a big lie just like Goebbels," Cohen said. "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. And Congressman Cohen didn’t stop there.

“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," Cohen said.

Cohen made his comments late last night, but they have attracted no attention because his speech was made to a virtually empty House chamber with no reporters around to watch.

So the next mass shooting will be this guy's fault? Will the rest of the leftist media point out the latest outrageous outburst by the Democrites who preach civility/censorship against conservatives but do nothing to control their own hate speech? Yeah right...

I don’t remember Sarah saying anything about buying a ‘newfound civility’... and until they can show me the quote, I’m NOT feeling any guilt.

The Dems like abortion, euthanasia, a civilian military (brown shirts), socialized medicine, control of industry, control of energy, gun confiscation, limited free speech, to be friendly with dictators, to dictate what you eat, income redistribution....

Nope, no similarities with the NAZIS here, move along nothing to see.... s/

Repeating lies. Isn’t this how Democrats typically attack Sarah Palin, the Tea Party and foxnews?

The Nazi’s were pro choice...Eugenics

The Nazi’s were pagans ...like the Democrat party while Conservatives are mostly Christian.

The Nazi’s were anti-Semitic....conservatives are the pro-Israeli/Jewish party

The Nazi’s were Humanists very much like the Nazi’s.

The Nazi’s were pro environmentalists like the Democrats not to protect the Earth but so ONLY THEY could enjoy the Mountains and Lakes.

That whole push to “civility” means: Conservatives, cease fire while the left presses its attacks full force. Have we honestly seen ANY letup from them?

To hell with that whole charade. The left regards us as their enemy, so we need to return the sentiment. Treat them as such. Work to destroy their nefarious agenda now and lay a path of destruction on the political careers.

Like their communist and radical muslim fellow travelers, the enemy of the left respects one thing and one thing only: return fire.

I wish someone in congress would go after the democrats who use the nazi label against the republicans. Then spell out the similarities between the dems and nazis. Of course I won’t hold my breath.

Call Cohen’s office.

He’s part of the J Street Jews (soros) group.

Democrat Compares Republicans to Nazis .>>>>>>>>>>

He has his history backwards. Jonah Goldberg in his book,”Liberal Fascism” gives the true history.

Fascism is the histrionic version of liberalism gon insane with imposed Utopian dreams, at the cost of personal freedom.

Every piece of recent legislation from the left has a fascist design.

WAKE UP AMERICA!!!

Won't be for long, I just posted it to the TN profile page, and sent it to the Memphis Tea Party and his opponent in the last election.

He’d just ignore you. Better to call the local talk radio station and the local TV news. I made sure all the people on my email list got it and one is a TN State Sen, and TN Eagle Forum leader.

I’ve got a BIG mouth LOL

Let’s see, a 2,000 page bill that no body read is supposed to not be a government takeover of health care? Up is down, black is white, cte.

Krugman’s take -

Steve Cohen is absolutely right, this is nothing like the Palin “blood libel” thing, and anyway it was taken out of context.

I’m afraid our only remaining hope in TN 9 is redistricting. That is a faint hope as the GOPers in Nashville are pretty much leaving this district out of discussions.

If we really were Nazis, we’d be running everything from sea to shining sea, and the last Democrat politician would have disappeared up the smokestack long ago.

An elite minority in the USA, that includes the MSM, have used the concept of divide and conquer to keep most Americans angry and fretting and bickering with and at each other. Americans should be angry at those who have stolen the US economy and sent it to China for the benefit of a few.

Mostly those that benefit are the bankers and wheeler dealer deal makers and not the managers or productive citizens that actually worked hard and served the USA in many capacities. The “deal makers” make more in a day than many hard working Americans make in a lifetime while their deals often benefit other nations. Something is seriously wrong.

Be sure every one in TN on your email list learns of it. If the MSM even local won’t do their work, we will do it for them.

We had pre-Tiger game on tonight instead of talk radio.
