Hmmm... comments on this one leftists? Disneydude? Hatuey? Others???WASHINGTON – A Tennessee Democrat is defending his comparison of Republican health care arguments to Nazi propaganda.
Rep. Steve Cohen of Memphis made the remarks earlier this week as House lawmaker debated repealing the new health care law. Cohen, who is Jewish, said Republicans are repeating lies and spreading false information, much like Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels did about Jews before the Holocaust.
He specifically criticized the GOP talking point that the health care bill was a government takeover, which he noted has been widely debunked.
"Just like Goebbels, you say it enough, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, and eventually people believe it," Cohen said on the House floor. "The Germans said enough about the Jews and the people believed it and you had the Holocaust."
