Don't back down

Republicans are using propaganda techniques, including repeating the big lie.  Rep. Steve Cohen (D-island of sanity in my home state of Tennessee) should not apologize, should not back down.  He hurt their sensitive feelings, did he?  (Nothing unusual about that.)  They should toughen up a little.

If the Republicans don't like the company they're keeping, they should stop keeping company with propagandists like Joseph Goebbels.  Cohen didn't call them baby-killers.  And that in fact would not be fair, since they're only neglecting the deaths of uninsured babies (and adults) that their NoCare policy would contribute to.  That it already causes.

You realize of course that Republicans and their wingnut media allies have been calling us Nazis and communists for two years, don't you?  Yet it's news when a Democrat returns the favor.
