Low Blow

September 29, 2020 |

It’s become depressingly common for politicians to tar their opponents as Nazis, fascists or “literally Hitler.” This is not only slanderous, it’s reprehensible because it “normalizes” such characterizations and dilutes the meaning and horror of what actually happened in the Holocaust, comparing the death of six million Jews to a petty political disagreement.

Sadly, Joe Biden tried to put a new spin on this low blow by comparing President Trump to Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s minister of propaganda, and his claim that if you tell a big lie often enough, the people will believe it.

This is the latest and ugliest manifestation of the canard that Trump lies all the time (you know, about the FBI being out to get him, about not actually colluding with Russia, etc.) What makes it even more jaw-dropping is that it's being used as a reason for why we need to elect Honest Joe Biden, who aside from his family’s shady financial dealings has repeatedly changed positions, denied he knew about the anti-Trump plot that we know was discussed at a meeting he attended, and who has seen his presidential aspirations repeatedly sunk by incidents of plagiarism and lying about his own background, including his academic background. The latest example is one for which nobody’s been able to find any evidence, and I’m hardly surprised.

Delaware State just confirmed that they can find no proof of Biden’s 2019 claim that he attended that school. He was the commencement speaker twice and got an honorary degree, but no, he didn’t attend a historically black college.

I look forward to tomorrow’s debate, where I wonder if Joe will channel Steve Martin and tell the audience, “I started out as a poor black child…”

    Low Joe believes Goebbels theory because it has worked so well for him and his underhanded cohorts. Look at the Russia story: they're still telling it and their supporters are still buying it.

    Trump needs to calm down, during the next debate. He can destroy Biden’s claims and pin him down on his waffling if he concentrates and recalls the evidence.

    Chris Wallace did everything possible to help Biden tonight.
    It was disgusting! Our country did not need this. Trump has been thru Hell! The American people have been thru Hell. THIS DID NOT HELP!
    Wallace Relayed the “very fine people” hoax.
    Transformed “defund the police” to “community policing”
    Lied about critical race theory and the damage it causes
    And is now debating Trump one on one regarding climate change.
    Unbelievable! Chris Wallace was Biden’s Nurse!
    I have never hated Fox like I do now.

    That idiot wouldn't know a Nazi even if he fell over one.

    At some point, even the unprofessional media will admit, Joe Biden's incapacities are substantial.

    Biden can’t tell the truth. I don’t know if he truly believes what he says or if people are coaching him to say these things. He is a liar.

    The left has become unhinged. I just pray (even with these mail in ballots— being used to cause confusion) our country. As we know it now survives
