Rep. Grayson says Jewish congressman used Nazi tactics

← return to Water Cooler


Yid with Lid has posted audio of further vitriol coming from liberal Democrat Congressman from Florida Alan Grayson towards Republican House GOP whip from Virginia, Eric Cantor. Mr. Grayson called for Mr. Cantor’s resignation over the Republican’s statement regarding a bullet that was shot at his campaign office in Richmond. In this clip, Mr. Grayson compared the statement of fellow Jewish congressman, Mr. Cantor, to the Nazi’s burning of the Reichstag:

COLMES: I want to talk about what happened with Eric Cantor’s office, and what Eric Cantor said today. It sounds like he’s accusing Democrats of inciting violence.
GRAYSON: Ah yes, I recall that happening, well, what is it now, 80 years ago - the burning of the Reichstag.
COLMES: I was really surprised that Eric Cantor, who is the Minority Whip, says his office was shot at, OK, and then he literally points fingers at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Democratic National Committee, saying that they are basically, you know - I want to get his exact words here - fanning the flames, “dangerously fanning the flames.”
GRAYSON: I think he should resign.
COLMES: So you are calling for the resignation of Eric Cantor based on that comment.
COLMES: Resign his leadership post, or resign from the Congress entirely?
GRAYSON (sighing): My goodness. I’m not even sure where he should stop.
