Enter, Tennessee Congressman Steve Cohen:
Despite some brow-beating from CNN’s John King, Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen didn’t back down or apologize for his statements on the House floor that the lie by Republicans that the Affordable Care Act is a “government takeover” of health care is similar to the techniques used Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.
“I said Goebbels lied about the Jews, and that led to the Holocaust,” Cohen said. “Not in any way whatsoever was I comparing Republicans to Nazis. I was saying lies are wrong…I dont know who got everybody’s panties in a wad over this statement.”
Well, to be fair, he is comparing Republicans to one Nazi in particular – but it is a legitimate comparison.
As they say in Texas (and elsewhere), if its true, it ain’t braggin’.
And if its true, it ain’t a Godwin’s Law violation.
