Alabama Republican quotes ‘Mein Kampf’ to attack Democrats and journalists for pursuing Mueller investigation – Alternet.org
Enter Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), who on Monday illustrated what he thinks of Democratic lawmakers and journalists who pursued the Mueller investigation by quoting a passage from Adolf Hitler’s autobiography, Mein Kampf, on the House floor.
“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 biggest political lie, con, scam and fraud in American history,” said Brooks. “I quote from another socialist who mastered ‘big lie’ propaganda to a maximum, and deadly, effect: ‘In the big lie, there is always a certain force of credibility because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature … and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.”
