Democratic National Committee Accuses Eric Cantor of Stoking Nazism

The Democrats just can’t get their talking points right on Eric Cantor (R-VA).

It was only last year when Cantor’s name was mentioned as a possible Vice Presidential pick that the Democrats wanted everyone to know he’s a Jew. They didn’t mention the religion of any of the other potential candidates.

Now, however, they are accusing Eric Cantor, who is Jewish, of fostering Nazism in the United States.

Hari Sevugan of the Democratic National Committee sent out an email earlier today with this:

It’s disgusting that rather than condemning this hate filled symbolism and mob activity, the highest echelons of the Republican party from Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck on down, are encouraging it – and that the likes of Michael Steele and Eric Cantor are fanning the flames of this is reprehensible. The repeated use of Nazi symbolism at community meetings by the Republican incited mob proves that these protests have nothing to do with health care, but rather that the Republican party is willing to sink to the lowest, most despicable levels to accomplish their goal of “breaking” President Obama.

That’s just how desperate the Democrats are — accusing a Jewish Republican of fanning the flames of Nazism and the use of Nazi symbols.

I would have liked to have gotten a comment from Eric Cantor on this, but he is in Israel this week. Ironic.
