A Republican Congressman Just Quoted Hitler on the House Floor to Compare Democrats to Nazis and it Totally Backfired

Not a good look.

On the floor of the House of Representatives, Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL) railed against Democrats and the media in the wake of Attorney General William Barr's summary of the Mueller Report, which asserted that Special Counsel Robert Mueller couldn't establish collusion between President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and Russian operatives.

"For more than two years, socialist Democrats and their fake news media allies — CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, Washington Post and countless others," Brooks said, "have perpetrated the biggest political lie, con, scam and fraud in American history.

Brooks attempted to paint Democrats as evil masterminds and socialist liars, comparing them to Nazis.

Watch below:

To establish the ill-conceived metaphor, he read from the genocidal dictator Adolf Hitler's manifesto, Mein Kampf. The passage described what Hitler called the Big Lie: a propaganda technique in which a leader tells lies so outrageously false that the populace believes they're true, because surely no one would tell a lie that colossal.

Sound familiar?

Others thought so too.

In his first two years, the President whom Brooks was defending made 8,158 false claims (and counting), his attorney said on television that "truth isn't truth," and Trump himself has promised supporters, "What you're seeing and what you're reading is not what's happening."

The irony of Brooks's claim aside, many were horrified at another aspect.

One of Mein Kampf's most infamously anti-Semitic passages will now be in the Congressional record.

Just last week, Donald Trump called the Democrats "anti-Jewish."

After Brooks' antics, many are finding that claim even more preposterous.
