Rep. Allen West: Nazi Joseph Goebbels Would “Be Very Proud of the Democratic Party” (Propaganda to Manipulate People)

Rep. Allen West said Thursday the top Nazi propaganda minister would “be very proud” of the Democrats because of their skill in convincing the American people that the only people to blame for the problems in Washington are the Republicans.

“If Joseph Goebbels was around, he’d be very proud of the Democrat Party, because they have an incredible propaganda machine,” the Florida Republican told reporters in the Capitol, Politico reported.

“You have the president, who has an incredible megaphone and a platform, and he has people all across this country believing that the only people on Capitol Hill are House Republicans. He’s not talking anything about his controlled Senate. So, it’s a great propaganda machine. And I have to give him kudos for being able to leverage that,” he said.

West also accused some in the media of “enabling” the Democrats to do so.

“Let’s be honest, you know, some of the people in the media are complicit in this, in enabling them to get that type of message out,” he said.

West, whose South Florida district is heavily Jewish, predicted his words would be used to “demonize” or “demagogue” him and insisted he was only making the comparison to propaganda, not comparing the Democratic Party to Naziism as a whole.

“I’m talking about propaganda, OK,” he said. “Don’t start taking my words and twisting it around. I’m talking about propaganda. And I think that’s a very important thing. When you tell me that everyone thinks that the only people on Capitol Hill are House Republicans, it‘s because that’s what’s being portrayed, is that there’s nobody else up here.”

“Once again, you guys will take whatever I say and you will spin it to try to demonize me or demagogue me,” West added. “What I’m talking about is a person that was the minister of propaganda. And I’m talking about propaganda. So please. I’ll be prepared to wake up tomorrow and you guys make up some crazy story. Whatever.”

Reaction to West’s comments poured in Thursday, with the National Jewish Democratic Council releasing a statement condemning him for “invoking the Holocaust to make a political point.“ The organization called on West to immediately apologize to the Jewish community and ”the Americans who fought valiantly to defeat the Nazis.”

“Shame on him,” tweeted Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.), chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Rep West needs to apologize now for insulting the memories of the millions who lost their lives during the Holocaust.”

Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) sent West a personal handwritten note Thursday to say he was disappointed in the remarks, Politico reported.

“He was a vicious notorious anti-Semite who went down in history as propagandist for Hitler,” Conyers, the senior-most black lawmaker in Congress, wrote in reference to Goebbels. “I beg of you to help raise the level of congressional discourse so that we can engage in vigorous debate without resort[ing] to personal attacks.”

But West refused to back down, reportedly responding: “Mr. Conyers, The Democrat Party does indeed have a vicious propaganda machine. It espouses lies and deceit and the Master of deceptive information would truly be proud…I have been personally attacked and denigrated on countless occasions. I do not appreciate your letter…Truth is Powerful Sir! Steadfast & Loyal, Allen.”

  1. yes bernays and goebbels the greatest lies and propaganda machines democrat models for success

  2. Where was the outrage when Obama compared America to Nazi Germany. Oh thats right…we cover for all Obama’s BS. The mainstream media has become Obamas water boy. NBC, CBS, and ABC, did not even mention Fast and Furious for 3 months after the story broke. We have an administration that gave more than 1,400 guns to the Mexican drug cartel which they then used to kill innocent Hispanics and Americans. Why? Because they wanted to out law the very guns that they gave to the drug cartel! Not to mentioned the millions they laundered. Holder has lied under oath to congress and we hear virtually NOTHING from the MSM! Pathetic, West is 100% correct in his statements. This administration is the most corrupt, sinister pack of thieves this nation has ever seen.
    Agent Terry was killed by weapons that were part of an illegal Obama administration operation to smuggle arms to the dangerous drug cartels. He was a victim of his own government. This is not only a major scandal; it is a high crime that potentially reaches all the way to the White House, implicating senior officials. It is President Obama’s Watergate.
    How about the billions given to “green companies”, whose major investors happen to be in the Obama administration or money bundlers for his campaign.
    The list is endless!
    Signs the NDAA bill, which empowers the government to indefinitely detain Americans without trial, a “historic tragedy for Bill of Rights. No more due process!
    Loss of credit rating,
    War with Libya without congressional approval,
    Doubles the deficit in two years,
    Bans off shore drilling in the Gulf, even after court ordered to lift ban.. Gives billions to Brazil to start their off shore drilling projects.

    First president to ever side with a forign country (Mexico) to sue the US…so much for the little oath he took.
    48 czars without congressional approval,
    War with Libya without congressional approval,
    Banned Hawker Beechcraft in Kansas from manufacturing US military planes. Gave the billion dollar contract to Embraer, which is controlled by the government of Brazil and has close ties to the government of Iran.
    Dismissed a clearly proven voter intimidation case – that was on record declaring its intent to ignore race-based crimes where Whites were the victims.
    Has taken more money from wall street than any other president,
    Gave drone to Iran
    Says, “Free enterprise doesn’t work…never has never will.”
    Obama reversed and blocked 102 permits of the coal mines in Appalachian creating a loss of tens of thousands of jobs.
    Obama re negotiated their loan agreement so investors (His buddy Kaiser) got paid first..Completly ILLEGAL!
    Refuses to open ANY of his records!
    Touts green energy while leaving a bigger carbon footprint than any President.

    Michelle- 10 million dollars spent on vacations…all while they tell Americans, “everybody is going to have to tighten their belts.”
    Lied about his law degree, being a professor, and a constitutional lawyer.
    Promises to unite the nation, instead he has become the most divisive president in history. Attempting to create class warfare, race riots…wait til this summer. Obama can’t run on his record, so instead he will call on SEIU and Sorros to step up his efforts of racism of class warfare.
    Can you imagine if anyone other than a Liberal had done ANY of these things?! This president is the most pathetic, lying, snake this nation has ever seen!
