Steve Cohen’s “apology”: I’m sorry Republicans took offense when I said they were just like the Nazis

January 21, 2011

 

There are lots of reports that Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) apologized for likening the Republican opponents of Obamacare to Nazis, but don’t you believe them. His regret was not for his ugly accusation, but was “that anyone in the Jewish community, my Republican colleagues or anyone else was offended by the portrayal of my comments.”

His complete statement can be found here.

Kudos to Rachel Maddow and Ed Schultz, the only people on the left who’ve been willing to say anything against Cohen’s House remarks. Maddow said, “Nothing is like the Nazis,” Schultz said “This can’t be tolerated.”

Tragically, no peep of criticism has come from Cohen’s Democratic colleagues. They remain silent; therefore they approve.
