Biden Calls Hawley And Cruz Nazis Who Should Be Flat Beaten The Next Time They Run

President-elect Joe Biden implied GOP Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Josh Hawley of Missouri are Nazis on Friday in remarks on the Capitol complex riots two weeks before the unity president takes office.
I think they should just be flat beaten the next time they run, Biden said, rather than demanding their resignations for opposing certification of the election results that fueled Wednesdays demonstrations. Theyre part of the big lie, the big lie, the president-elect continued, in an apparent reference to Nazi Joseph Goebbels. Biden previously used the same comparison to characterize President Donald Trump on the campaign trail.
Hes sort of like Goebbels, Biden said of Trump on MSNBC in September. You say the lie long enough, keep repeating it, repeating it, it becomes common knowledge.
The Big Lie, was an idea first espoused by Goebbels and German Dictator Adolf Hitler in the early 20th century across Nazi propaganda, first coined in Hitlers 1925 book Mein Kampf.
If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it, Goebbels often said.
Cruz condemned the comparison on Twitter.
At a time of deep national division, President-elect Bidens choice to call his political opponents Nazis does nothing to bring us together or promote healing, Cruz wrote.
