Berg’s Seventh Law: There Are, It Seems, No Exceptions

The chair of the California Democrat Party compares Republican “tactics” to those of Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels:

“They lie and they don’t care if people think they lie,” Chairman of the California Democratic Party John Burton told KCBS Monday in Charlotte. “As long as you lie, Joseph Goebbels, the big lie, you keep repeating it, you know.”

a) It was Hitler, in Mein Kampf, not Goebbels.  Hitler coined the saying – and I say this with full, creepy and utterly appropriate irony – to accuse “The Jews” of telilng big lies often until the thick-headed believed them.  Goebbels used it the same way – accusing Churchill of being a big fat liar.  In other words, the real story of “the Big Lie” is actually a classic example of Berg’s Seventh Law.

b) Again – I guess civility isn’t the supreme civic virtue anymore, is it?

“First of all,” he continued, “you’ve got Republicans who truly believe the Earth is flat, so I don’t know exactly what, you know, what’s going to do, but they, I think that when people figure out that these people say they do not care about the truth and they will lie and they don’t care if they lie because it doesn’t matter if they lie.”

He’s referring, in his preliterate way, to the “progressive” conceit that conservatives don’t care about science.

And it’s another punch in the ticket for the Democrat quest to reel in the “Low-Information Voters”.

And, naturally, further proof that Berg’s Seventh Law is immutable.

UPDATE:  Chairman Burton has apparently departed Charlotte for a “pre-scheduled root canal” that he, apparently, arranged during his party’s most important quadrennial event.  These things happen, I guess.

  1. This from the same party that wants to disarm law abiding citizens, give out freebies for votes, allow anyone to marry, degrade the integrity of our election system and members that believe Guam will capsize if any more people are living there. Classic!

  2. Even 0 is missing tonight’s festivities. Which goes to prove how important DNC is, if people would rather get root canal than attend it. As Sheriff Bart woud say, “I like to keep my audience riveted!”.

  3. Boss: quit mocking them. They’re doing a fine job of minimizing themselves without us drawing attention to them. When your enemy is busy hanging himself, don’t step on the rope.

  4. Interestingly, the National Debt just passed $16,000,000,000,000 today. Very fitting that it should pass that milestone (Millstone?) on opening day of the DNC Convention.

  5. I think they should have John Edwards introduce and nominate Obama. Limousine liberal, 1%’er who wants to spend your money as well as his own, a liar, a cheater, a man who has betrayed every trust he was given.
    He is the modern face of the Democrat party.

  6. Wonder how many people know which president’s administration contributed most significantly to the 16 trillion debt… and who’s actions and policies that are still now contributing significantly to its growth? It’s relatively recent history, if that helps.

  7. okthere paraphrased: “It’s all Bushes fault”.

    Yeah, hadn’t heard that before. And President Barack Obama is helpless to stop the problems caused, even now.

    You realize, of course, that this is just one more reason to fire him, right?

  8. Nearly 4 years later and no budget has been passed, so we are still operating off of a Bush budget. So it is Bush’s fault! Never mind that rumored pederast Reid has prevented a budget from coming to the floor of the Senate and the current President has not used his bully pulpit to demand a budget be passed. This way they can still claim it is Bush’s fault.
