When one begins to realize that the lies are become a little too obvious, that the policies you advocate are obviously doing more harm than good, or if that nagging feeling of guilt is eating away at your conscience (Or maybe a little of all three), how does an individual of our era react? Does he take a step back and reconsider his positions and actions?
Our modern era guy resorts to projecting his faults onto the opposition.We have a bit of a medley on this subject for this post.
Bolding is added:
"California Democratic chief John Burton made the remarks [About Republicans] Monday in an interview with San Francisco station KCBS while in Charlotte, N.C., for the Democratic National Convention.
"They lie and they don't care if people think they lie ... Joseph Goebbels -- the big lie, you keep repeating it," Burton said. "That was Goebbels, the big lie.' "
"Obama’s deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said Sunday that Republicans think “lying is a virtue” while discussing the recent GOP convention.
“It was a week of personal attacks, empty platitudes, [where] the one thing that you were left with is they really think that lying is a virtue…I think the American people disagree with that,” sheremarked on CBS’ “Face the Nation.' "
The above is a video clip. Before Mia Love is interviewed, a Senior Advisor fro the White House is featured in a sub-clip in which he states that the Republican campaign is "built on a tripod of lies". He goes on to deny that Obama destroyed a key portion of welfare reform when he removed the work requirement, that Medicare was not cut to pay for Obamacare, and that Americans who were angered by "You didn't build that" were engaging in "nonsense" In closing, after lying three full times, mind you, he again asserts that the Romney campaign was "built on a foundation of lies".
These guys must be convinced that Americans are far and away the most stupid and gullible people on the face of the earth.
“A lie told often enough becomes truth” (Note that Lenin gets the credit and that Goebbels, who was hazardously quoted above, is second in that race)
"We can and must write in a language which sows among the masses
hate, revulsion, and scorn toward those who disagree with us."
