Liberty -vs- Tyranny
There is an old saying. It goes something like this... "Don't throw if you can't catch."
I would respectfully suggest the democratic left consider this common sense advice. Especially in light of their rank hypocrisy in respect to Representative Allan West's recent remarks comparing the democrats to Goebbels.
They seem to forget their own offensive and untruthful remarks that were aimed at stereotyping the Tea Party supporters as racists, fascists, or other slanderous names.
(The Hill) - Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) landed in hot water on Friday for his remarks the previous day comparing the Democrats’ proficiency in getting out their message to the notorious head of the Nazi Party’s propaganda department under Hitler.
“If Joseph Goebbels was around, he’d be very proud of the Democrat Party, because they have an incredible propaganda machine,” West said Thursday.
Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) sent West a note expressing his disappointment in the remark. “I beg of you to help raise the level of congressional discourse in vigorous debate without resort to personal attacks,” Conyers wrote in a handwritten note first obtained by Politico.
West’s remarks came even as Democrats and Republicans scrambled to reach a bipartisan agreement on a spending bill necessary to continue funding the government into the new year.
“Shame on him,” tweeted Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.). “Rep. West needs to apologize now for insulting the memories of the millions who lost their lives during the Holocaust.”
Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-N.Y.) also called on West to apologize.
“This is exactly the type of rhetoric that turns people off to Washington and getting involved in politics,” Ackerman said in a statement. “I call on Republicans and Democrats alike to join me in demanding an apology.”
West should not only NOT apologize he ought to say, as General Tony McAuliffe did in replying to the German commander,s request for Allied forces to surrender the encircled town of Bastogne in 1944... "NUTS!"
