Civility = libspeak for gagging conservatives.
But they’re free to up the vitriol and the MSM ignores it!
House Dem compares GOP health care case to Nazi propaganda
Say What? Democrat Compares Republicans to Nazis
ABC News Jonathan Karl reports: The newfound civility didnt last long. Political rhetoric in Congress doesnt 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 its 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. Thats the same kind of thing. And Congressman Cohen didnt stop there.
The Germans said enough about the Jews and people believed itbelieved 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.

Charlotte would not have that for sure!
Projection from a typical Democrat. Anything a Dem claims a Republican does is a reflection of themselves, and what they do.
Ahhh! The classic “I know you are, but what am I?” defense.
We ALL know these are Alinsky tactics!
The right needs to come back HARD on this. Cohen’s outburst means one of two things. Either Obama has lost control of his party members in congress as they have apparently completely disregarded his call for civility, or bambi’s speech was given with a tacit nod and a wink knowing that he wasn’t really serious. Well Gibbs, which is it?
This guy should be sanctioned and forced to make an apology. We must use their rules against them. Either the Left will be embarrassed or they will stand up for this guy by demanding free speech rights.
Either way, we win. The Left will tire of being forced to live up to their own standards or they will be forced to support free speech and we will keep them to that standard.
The guy is a certifiable wack-a-doodle.
Classic case of Marxist argument. Accuse others of what you do (or are). When or if the Republican party becomes the socialist workers party and openly advocates for goverment take over of health care then they can be compared to NAZIs...just like what the socialist Dems are doing.
I think you are misinterpreting. He’s telling fellow libs HOW THEY DO THINGS. Read it again with that in mind!
Somebody needs to ask Cohen what he’d call it if a President (say someone like Obama) for months told the nation the insurance mandate was decidedly *not* a tax, and then after the healthcare bill passed, argued forcefully in court that the insurance mandate was constitutional because it definitely *was* a tax.
Of course, 'these folks' pay no attention to that which they put forth per required 'civil dictums'. They know this is a 'silencing' MO for their opposition and certainly not meant to silence the Leftist perps themselves. . .
No mention of the southern democrats and the KKK.
More vitriolic speech from the Democrats.
DemonRATs now blubbering about “civility”. Well, I’m just roflmao. What a joke.
They can all bite me.
Cohen is a dead soul democrat. lying is second nature to these vermin.
