Democrat Slams Joe Biden for Comparing Trump to Goebbels: 'Desecrated' the Holocaust

Retired New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) slammed former Vice President Joe Biden on Sunday morning for comparing President Donald Trump to Nazi propaganda minister Joesph Goebbels.

As Breitbart News reported Saturday, Biden made the comparison in an interview with MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle.

“He’s sort of like Goebbels,” he said. “You say the lie long enough, keep repeating it, repeating it, repeating it, it becomes common knowledge.”

Ruhle did not appear to correct Biden or to question the comparison.

Hikind, who has been a vocal critic of his party in recent years as it has drifted leftward, tweeted: “When @JoeBiden compared President @realDonaldTrump to the Nazi Goebbels he desecrated the memory of six million Jews who were murdered bc of ppl like Goebbels! It’s an insult to my mother’s family who were all murdered at Auschwitz! SHAME ON YOU JOE BIDEN!”

As the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum notes:

Joseph Goebbels was a National Socialist politician and propagandist. He held several roles in the Nazi Party. He served as Nazi Party chief for Greater Berlin from 1926 until 1945. From 1929 until 1945 he was Reich leader of propaganda. In 1933, Adolf Hitler appointed Goebbels Reich Minister for Propaganda and Public Enlightenment, a position he held until 1945. Goebbels was an unconditional follower of Hitler and a radical antisemite.

Goebbels remained close to Hitler until Hitler committed suicide as Russian soldiers approached his command bunker under the Reich Chancellery in Berlin on April 30, 1945. In his political testament, Hitler had named Goebbels to be Germany’s new Reich Chancellor. However, Goebbels rejected any possibility of surrender to the Allies. He had no illusions concerning his fate should Germany surrender. He wrote in his diary in March 1943, “We are already so enmeshed above all in the Jewish Question that there is no escape for us.” Instead Goebbels and his wife Magda arranged to poison their six children. They then committed suicide on May 1, 1945. Nazi control of public information ended with Goebbels’ suicide and the collapse of the regime in May 1945.

The Republican Jewish Coalition has demanded that Biden apologize. Few other Jewish organizations have come forward.
