New tone alert…
According to a just released report from the San Francisco Chronicle, California Democratic Party Chair John Burton compared Paul Ryan and the GOP to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.
Let’s see how – or if – the media reports this outrageous comment. Had this been a Republican, you would have already heard about it, as opposed to having to read it here.
From the Chronicle (who will be posting audio shortly):
Greetings from the California delegation breakfast at the DNC where before he had a cup of coffee Democratic Party Chair John Burton – much like his ol’ pal Guv Jerry Brown once did – just compared the Republicans to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels, for “telling the big lie,” a reference to several falsehoods GOP VP nominee Paul Ryan recently told.
“They lie and they don’t care if people think they lie… Joseph Goebbels – it’s the big lie, you keep repeating it,” Burton said Monday before the Blake Hotel breakfast. He said Ryan told “a bold-faced lie and he doesn’t care that it was a lie. That was Goebbels, the big lie.”
Reminded that Brown drew heat for comparing the messaging of Meg Whitman’s 2010 GOP gubernatorial campaign to Goebbels, he said sarcastically, “(Bleep) that’s right, she won the election!
Burton shrugged at Brown getting in trouble. “He won it big. Goddam he was in trouble.”
Not only does he make the troubling comparison, but he shrugs it off and hints that it may be a good thing for his future political aspirations. Sadly, he may be right in a liberal cesspool like California.
Additionally, the Chronicle points out that Burton is wrong on his facts whilst accusing Ryan of lying. Liars lie.
This video shows Burton railing against Ryan on his alleged ‘lies’, and referring to the vice-presidential candidate as a “horse’s ass”.
