Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen (Tenn.) on the House floor Tuesday night compared Republican claims about the healthcare reform law to lies perpetrated by the Nazis that led to the Holocaust. Cohen, who is Jewish, made his remarks during floor debate over the GOP bill to repeal the law.
"They don't like the truth so they summarily dismiss it," he said. "They say it's a government takeover of healthcare. A big lie just like [Nazi propaganda minister Joseph] Goebbels. You say it enough and you repeat the lie, repeat the lie, repeat the lie until eventually people believe it. Like blood libel, that's the same kind of thing.
"The Germans said enough about the Jews and people believed it, and you have the Holocaust," he added. "You tell a lie over and over again."
Race baiting James Clyburn played the race card as well (Gateway Pundit):
Doctor King also taught us that the time is always right to do right. After nearly a century of debate last March the time was right. And getting rid of these discriminatory practices was the right thing to do(?) And, that is the reason I call the bill the Civil Rights Act of the 21st Century. Interestingly, today we hear the same rhetoric about repeal of patients rights that we heard regarding voting rights.
What happened about all this talk of civility from all you libs? This is the way you operate. Like the heel wrestler who is in the midst of getting pummeled, he distracts with a 'hands up' begging for mercy, as a ploy to land a low blow.
Any Republican who still goes along with this sitting side by side with Democrats idea for the State of the Union address after today is a spineless eunuch. I know what this phony cry for "civility" means, we're supposed to shut up because the libs can't take it they lost.
