Democrat Tells the Truth about the GOP, then Recants

[1]

Russ Bel­lan­t’s Book about the GOP and the Nazis

COMMENT: A telling com­ment was placed on the record by John Bur­ton and then retracted–a sub­stan­tive indi­ca­tion of just how debased our polit­i­cal cul­ture has become.

Bur­ton quite appro­pri­ate­ly scored the GOP for being pur­vey­ors of the big lie, like Nazi pro­pa­gan­da min­is­ter Joseph Goebbels. Not only was he cor­rect about the dimen­sions of the men­dac­i­ty dis­sem­i­nat­ed by the GOP, but the Repub­li­can Par­ty itself is inex­tri­ca­bly linked with the Under­ground Reich [2].

Under the ver­bal assault direct­ed at him by the GOP, Bur­ton recant­ed and apol­o­gized. 

Past a point, truth-telling seems to elude the Democ­rats, who might well have scored points with the Amer­i­can peo­ple had they brought this fact to light. Even though the GOP “eth­nics” and their links to the Nazis emerged into the pub­lic spot­light years ago, the Nazi wing of the Repub­li­cans’ has nev­er been used to high­light the raw, fascis­tic bru­tal­i­ty they have long man­i­fest­ed.

In addi­tion to the Repub­li­cans’ eth­nic out­reach orga­ni­za­tion [3]–lit­er­al­ly a Nazi wing of the GOP with roots firm­ly anchored in the Third Reich, the Rea­gan admin­is­tra­tion’s per­son­nel [4]were select­ed by Helene Von Damm, a pro­tege of Otto von Bolschwing, Adolf Eich­man­n’s supe­ri­or for a time.

“John Bur­ton Apol­o­gizes for Com­par­ing Repub­li­cans to Nazi Goebbels” by Mor­gan Lit­tle; Los Ange­les Times; 9/3/2012. [5]

EXCERPT: John Bur­ton, the chair­man of the Cal­i­for­nia Demo­c­ra­t­ic Par­ty, has apol­o­gized for com­par­ing Repub­li­cans to Nazi pro­pa­gan­da chief Joseph Goebbels, a com­ment that quick­ly sparked out­cry from the GOP.

“If Mitt Rom­ney, Paul Ryan, or the Repub­li­cans are insult­ed by my describ­ing their cam­paign tac­tic as the big lie — I most humbly apol­o­gize to them or any­one who might have been offend­ed by that com­ment,” John Bur­ton said in a state­ment.

Bur­ton, who let loose against Repub­li­cans in an inter­view with KCBS and the San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle, expressed his con­tempt for the party’s recent rhetoric Mon­day morn­ing.

“They lie and they don’t care if peo­ple think they lie. As long as you lie, Joseph Goebbels, the big lie, you keep repeat­ing it, you know,” he said.
Bur­ton made a point of not­ing that he nev­er used the word “Nazi”; how­ev­er, he did invoke the Nazi min­is­ter of pro­pa­gan­da twice.
“That was Goebbels, a big lie, they said they don’t care about facts,” he said. “They’re going to lie so, I mean, that’s not pejo­ra­tive to them. They prob­a­bly wear it as a com­pli­ment.” . . . .
