California Democrat rebuked for comparing Ryan's 'lies' to Nazi propaganda chief Goebbels'
Washington, Sept. 4 (ANI): The chairman of the California delegation to the Democrats' convention has been criticized by both parties for comparing Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan to the Nazi propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels.
"They lie and they don't care if people think they lie. Joseph Goebbels. It's the big lie, you keep repeating it," John Burton said.
According to ABC News, Goebbels was the minister of propaganda during Hitler's Nazi regime.
Burton was referring specifically to Ryan, whose speech at the Republican convention in Tampa has been criticized by Democrats for inaccuracies.
"How can a senior citizen believe him when he says I'm going to save your Medicare or that my budget balances," the report quoted Burton, as reacting to Ryan's remarks.
"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," Burton added.
According to the report, President Barack Obama's campaign rejected Burton's comments just hours before their convention kicked off.
"That obviously doesn't reflect the views of the campaign," Obama for America National Press Secretary Ben LaBolt said, adding: "That doesn't have any place in the political discourse here in Charlotte."
According to the report, the Republican Jewish Coalition also condemned Burton's remarks.
"John Burton ought to know better than to bring the Nazis and their victims into our current political debates, but apparently the offense such remarks cause to Holocaust survivors and their families are of less concern to him than the prospect of partisan gain," the coalition said. (ANI)
