To Conclude Hitler Week, Senate Democrat Accuses Jewish GOP Opponent of the ‘Big Lie’

Posted by on Sep 07, 2012 at 6:16 pm

That’s at least four Hitler-related “big lie” attacks this week. Obviously it all part of the Democrat strategy.

They really have no shame.

Senator Sherrod Brown’s campaign issued a new attack ad Friday against his rival, Republican Josh Mandel. In it, the Ohio Democrat accuses Mandel of using the “big lie” strategy in his campaign. The term “big lie” was coined by Adolf Hitler and is commonly associated with Nazi propaganda.

Mandel is Jewish.

The ad states: “Josh Mandel: He has become the candidate of the big lie.” It cites a Columbus Dispatch columnist as the source for the quote. It argues that Mandel has made numerous false statements about his career as state treasurer, among other distortions.

Brown’s ad does not specifically mention Nazis, but the term “big lie” is still closely identified with them. Earlier this week, John Burton, chairman of the California delegation to the Democrats’ Charlotte convention, was criticized when he compared Republican Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan to the Nazis and referenced the “big lie.”

Clearly the Democrats haven’t received the message. Funny how the media almost entirely ignored this ugliness all week.
