A representative from Alabama just quoted Mein Kampf on the House floor in a historically disgusting display reminiscent of the pre-civil rights era. Rep. Mo Brooks was attacking Democrats and their “socialist agenda” to better the nation by making the elite rich pay their fair share.
“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.”
He continued to rant abut how liberals were to blame for attacks on Trump supporters, because we all know how oppressed white people are in America. The problem is that Brooks used the words “big lie scam,” which are words Adolph Hitler used in his autobiographical book, Mein Kampf.
It’s unconscionable for a member of Congress to demonize an opposing party by claiming it's comparable to Nazism. The vicious Nazi regime was responsible for the murder of 6 million Jews and millions more. This is dangerous and @RepMoBrooks must apologize. https://t.co/DQpxJUEg6s

“America must reject [Democrats and the media’s] ‘big lies’ or succumb to the danger that lurks, and horrific damage that results.”
“If socialists in the fake news media had any honor, they would cleanse their souls and atone for their sins by uttering mea culpas. More likely however, they will double down and propagate even more big lies. Because doubling down is central to big lie theory.”
“In that vein, I quote from another socialist who mastered big-lie propaganda to a maximum and deadly effect.”
That’s when Brooks pulled a direct quote from Hitler’s book. He said the following:
“‘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 than consciously or voluntarily.”
“and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.'”
But he wasn’t done there. The disgusting politician continued to quote a man who slaughtered millions of Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, intellectually and physically disabled people for no good reason at all. The quote continues:
“’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. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation,.”
