” A’ big lie ,'” Brooks said,” is a political propaganda technique saw famous by Germany’s national socialist German proletarians’ party .”
And it’s what the Democrat have been engaged in for years, he said, referring to their subsistence of the Mueller probe into the president, and their sentiment that President Donald Trump colluded with Russia.
Democrats, Brooks said, had a duty to atone for their sins:” For more than two years, socialist Democrats and their fake news media allies–CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, Washington Post, and countless others–have perpetrated the most difficult political lie, con, defraud, and hoax in American record … If socialists in the fake use of the information media had any reputation, they would cleanse their spirits and atone for their sins .”
Brooks went on to read a passage from Mein Kampf, saying ” In the big-hearted lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a person are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily .”
That’s some serious expression from a congressperson, especially when the relevant paragraphs before the” big-hearted lie” Brooks was mentioned in Mein Kampf was spent demonizing Jewish people, whom Hitler said have an” unqualified capability for deceit” and were responsible for propagating the” big-hearted lies .”
Brooks’ terms come after weeks of Republicans announced today that Democrats were the two parties of anti-Semites. Calling Dems the party of Nazis is a brand-new escalation of that rhetoric.
But speaking Mein Kampf on the House floor may not be the best route to endear your party to people.
