Brown Says Whitman Is ‘Like Goebbels’

From the Politico:

Brown: Goebbels crack ‘jogging talk’

By Maggie Haberman
June 10, 2010

California Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Jerry Brown compared his free-spending Republican rival Meg Whitman with Nazi propaganda master Joseph Goebbels as he laced into her ambitions for higher office.

Brown made the remark during an impromptu conversation with KCBS reporter Doug Sovern, who ran into the gubernatorial candidate and current state attorney general on a jogging path during the past weekend, before Whitman clinched a primary victory on Tuesday.

Sovern posted quotations from the often-rambling conversation on his blog Wednesday night.

"You know, by the time she’s done with me, two months from now, I’ll be a child-molesting …" Sovern quoted Brown as saying. "She’ll have people believing whatever she wants about me."

Then he added, "It’s like Goebbels. … Goebbels invented this kind of propaganda. He took control of the whole world. She wants to be president. That’s her ambition, the first woman president. That’s what this is all about."

What a laughable ignorance of history you have there, Mr. Brown.

Brown’s representatives did not deny the statement when asked directly about it but described it as "jogging talk" that was "taken out of context."

What is exactly is the context that would make such a comparison acceptable? And why don’t they tell us what it is?

Whitman’s campaign blast e-mailed the astonishing comment, which is sure to raise protests from California’s Jewish voters over its light invocation of a notorious anti-Semite whose name is synonymous with engineering the Holocaust.

"Just last week, Gov. Brown promised he wasn’t going to engage in mudslinging, but now he is comparing Meg Whitman to Hitler’s minister of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels," said her campaign manager, Jillian Hasner.

"Jerry Brown’s statements comparing our campaign to a propagator of the Holocaust is deeply offensive and entirely unacceptable." …

If Mr. Brown were a Republican, we would never hear the end of this, even if he dropped out of the campaign.

But, since he is a liberal Democrat, all will be forgiven – even by the Jewish voters of California.

    Can you say ‘Projection’? Sure. I knew ya could.

    Jerry Brown–crack head extrordinaire. Poor baby was quoted out of context? More likely something he said as he was pulling his head out of a bowl of cocaine–or his ass.

    Some people are alive because it’s illegal to kill them!

  2. proreason says:

    Brown is probably a bone deep racist too.

    When people like the moonchild display this level of horrific contempt for a group (i.e., women), they usually feel the same way about every group that doesn’t match their own demographic profile.

    Oh Governor Moonbeam, always good for some chuckles.

    But shame on Carly Fiorina for jesting about Boxer’s hair! She must apologize!

    I didn’t realize this moonbat was still alive!

    Old hippies don’t go away, they just get stranger and stranger.

    Getting rid of the political establishment isn’t Democracy, it’s and EXORCISM!

    Don’t listen to ANYTHING they say, just vote them out!

    If Jerry Brown was to get elected………again as governor, what or how would he do to get the state out of the red? Raise taxes? Yes! Great. They already pay some of the highest in the nation along with N.Y. and we all see what the progressive agenda has done to these states. Enjoy your high taxes Californians because the rich are leaving to ptrtect their $$ because of this and the illegal aliens sancctuary system and entitlements.
