The chairman of the California delegation to the Democratic National Convention, John Burton, yesterday compared the “lies” of Republican VP candidate Paul Ryan, at the Republican Convention last week, to Nazi propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels.
In an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle on Saturday, John Burton said, “They lie and they don’t care if people think they lie. Joseph Goebbels . It’s the big lie, you keep repeating it.”
Goebbels was the minister of propaganda during Hitler’s Nazi regime.
Burton expanded on his comments with ABC Affiliate KGO, saying, “If you’re not telling the truth, you’re lying. Joseph Goebbels’ concept was the big lie. If you tell it enough, people will think it’s the truth.”
President Obama’s campaign rejected Burton’s comments just hours before their convention kicked off.
This comment coming from the party that said the heated rhetoric is responsible for some of the increased violence across the country.
John Burton has since been reported to have left the Democratic National Convention for a pre-scheduled root canal. If a root canal was scheduled then why did he then go to the convention in the first place?
More likely the Dems threw him out, which was far more than Nancy Pelosi did upon hearing Burton’s Nazi comments about Paul Ryan.
Why would anyone vote for these people, unless they were on the government dole?
