Calif. Dem Chair Says Romney/Ryan Like Nazi Joseph Goebbels
California Democrat Party Chairman John Burton is setting the Democrat National Convention off on the sort of demagogic footing that has characterized the Democrat’s campaign this year by accusing Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan of being like Nazis, specifically Nazi official Joseph Goebbels.
At a California delegation breakfast today, Chairman Burton went on one of his epic, rambling, half-informed rants about Romney Ryan when he uttered the Goodwin’s Law violation.
Burton is reported as saying:
“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.”
At another event a seemingly inebriated Burton rambled on about lies and medicare all in, shall we say, his usual “colorful” terms.
As usual, Burton is hazy on facts, as well. In the video below he says that the GM plant that was closed down in Wisconsin was closed down before Obama was even running for president. This is simply untrue as it closed down after Obama was elected to the White House, just as Ryan said it was.
It’s another new tone alert, for sure.

The 1960s began with a presidential election between conservative cold warrior Richard Nixonâ€¦and the surprisingly conservative cold warrior John F. Kennedy. In terms of the similarity between the two candidates, and the public they represented, this was a high point in national unity. The assassination of JFK began a process that ultimately shattered that unity. During the course of the 1960s, Americans witnessed the split between the liberalism of FDR, Harry Truman, JFK and LBJ, and the rise of the punitive New Left that emerged in the wake of President Kennedyâ€™s assassination. As we explore in the latest edition of our Silicon Graffiti video blog, the alpha and the omega of those two forms of American liberalism came less than a month apart, in the summer of 1969…
