Democrat invokes Nazis to slam GOP on health care law - On Politics: Covering the US Congress, Governors, and the 2012 Election - USATODAY.com:
"Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., also used the same phrase -- blood libel -- that got former Alaska governor Sarah Palin into trouble with some Jewish groups.
Speaking about Republicans, Cohen said last night, 'They say it's a government takeover of health care. A big lie just like (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.'"
His list of "big lies" were well proven things, like government takeover of healthcare and death panels.
Not satisfied with the depth of the hole he had made, he did a telephone interview with TPM and Ryan J. Reilly tries to assist with the Cohen narrative:
"I meant what I said, that lies are wrong," Cohen told TPM in a phone interview Wednesday.
Cohen said he wasn't comparing Republicans to members of the Third Reich. He did, however, see a parallel between the rhetorical strategies of GOPers in their march to repeal health care reform and those used on the people of Germany under the leadership of Adolf Hitler.See what he did there? What a clever writer! He says Cohen was not calling them Nazis, he just sees that they are the same. Is the difference the card in their pocket or the missing band from their sleeve?
"It was a lie, and that if you repeat a lie over and over again it doesn't make it the truth and that's what Goebbels did," Cohen said. "Goebbels is known for political propaganda, probably one of the most successful political propagandist whose philosophy was to lie, and if you repeat it over and over again than people will believe it."
"Last night I did mention Goebbels because I thought about it and I've had people tell me 'it's just like Goebbels, it's the big lie' you repeat it over and over and over again," Cohen said.As if that was not enough, he had to visit with Anderson Cooper and do a 360:

The House of Representatives voted to repeal ObamaCare last night. National Socialism is on its way to defeat.
