Demo Rep. Steve Cohen claims Republican lying is uncivil. There is nothing uncivil about him comparing Republicans to Nazis

There is nothing to see here. Move along. This story got very little play in the mainstream media. Most of the coverage has been by blogs or the blog section of mainstream media organizations. Can you imagine the outrage if a Republican had compared Democrats to Nazis in a House floor speech? It would likely have been the lead evening news story on all three broadcast networks.
(Daily Caller)- “I think lying is uncivil,” he said, when asked whether he thought his comments were in tune with recent calls for civility. “It’s a big lie. And I think lies should not be tolerated. The ninth commandment, thou shalt not bear false witness, stands in Congress too.”

When asked if it was appropriate to compare political opponents to Nazis, who orchestrated the murder of more than 10 million people, he dismissed the premise, saying, “I don’t think anybody should have drawn that comparison.”

Cohen is just another commie from Memphis. What's amazing to me is that he gets an audience.
