With all the discussion about a new tone: Democrat claims Republicans like Nazis propogandists

From ABC News:

The newfound civility didn’t last long. Political rhetoric in Congress doesn’t get much nastier than the words of one House Democrat during the debate on repealing the health care law.

In an extraordinary outburst on the House floor, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) invoked the Holocaust to attack Republicans on health care and compared rhetoric on the issue to the work of infamous Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. . . .

Here is the same Congressman referring to the Tea Party as being similar to the KKK.

UPDATE: After repeatedly saying that Republicans are like Nazi who used propaganda to run the Nazi death camps, he now says that he was never referring to Republicans as Nazi. Leave aside the point that I think that it is Democrats who are lying when they say that Obamacare doesn't involve a further government take over of health care, his explanation for what he said is bizarre. Karl Rove gets this one right.
