President-elect Joe Biden has referenced members of the Republican Party to Nazi Joseph Goebbels before. He used that characterization to attack President Donald Trump all throughout the campaign trail from his basement. This week he has implied that GOP Sens. Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley are ‘Nazis’ and demanded their resignation for opposing the Electoral College Vote results.
“I think they should just be flat beaten the next time they run. They’re part of the big lie, the big lie,” Biden said.
He had previously accused President Trump of using Goebbels ‘lie’ technique. If you repeat the same lie long enough, it becomes common knowledge. Goebbels and Adolf Hitler talked about this technique in their 1925 book “Mein Kampf,” one of the first 20th century Nazi propaganda pieces.
Texas Sen. Cruz tweeted out that it was “really sad” for President-elect Biden to call his opponents Nazis at a time of deep national division. He said this kind of vicious partisan rhetoric only tears our country apart more. Missouri Sen. Hawley called it “undignified, immature, and intemperate” for a President-elect to act and called on him to act like a dignified adult and retract the sick comments.
President-elect Biden also used the incident at the Capitol building to create more political division and suggest that if they were social justice protesters they would’ve been treated far differently than Trump supporters.
“No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesting yesterday, they wouldn’t have been treated very very differently. We saw a clear failure to carry out equal justice,” Biden said.
Social media users denied to compare the two since Black Lives Matter protesters burned down cities and looted businesses all summer long. Mainstream media, such as CNN and MSNBC, covered it as ‘peaceful protests’ and let entire buildings and small businesses burst into flames on camera. High-profile Democrats and left-leaning governors nationwide praised these as ‘acts of justice.’
Biden called the Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol “the mob of thugs” and continued to praise radical left activists in their fight for justice. Vice President-elect Kamala Harris also praised the burning and looting of last summer while gaslighting the incident at the Capitol.
“We witnessed two systems of justice when we saw one that let extremists storm the United States Capitol, and another that released tear gas on peaceful protesters last summer…We know this is unacceptable. We know we should be better than this,” Harris said.
Not one member of the media will call out Biden or Harris on their lies. What about the people who ran a police department out of their station or set fires on government buildings? This wasn’t a raid on the Capitol, it was a ‘peaceful protest.’
