And please I don't want to hear from Bill O'Reilly how the Dems aren't listening to the president's call for civility...Bill you still don't get it... Obama wasn't referencing this kind of talk. He meant when Republicans criticize his policies..that kind of incivility. Why else would he let 4 days of the unbelievable libelous rhetoric of the liberals [fueled by the MSM] blaming conservatives for the shootings without a peep from him. You won't hear him criticize this either Bill, because, like Clark Gable, frankly he doesn't give a damn about this kind of talk.
Say What? Democrat Compares Republicans to Nazis
January 19, 2011 1:02 PMABC 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.
One other thing.... I have yet to hear Abe Foxman of the ADL criticize Rep Cohen..if he has, then I apologize. Please Abe, it doesn't take you long to come out and unjustly criticize a Rush Limbaugh or a Sarah Palin. Now you have something you really need to criticize... don't let the once proud and great organization, the ADL, lose any of the credibility it has left.
