Dem Who Compared Republicans To Nazis, Once Compared Tea Party to KKK

Joe Schoffstall | January 20, 2011

Rep. Steve Cohen, who is taking heat for saying Republicans lie like the Nazis, once compared the Tea Party to the KKK, as Anderson Cooper calls him out on his hypocrisy in this clip. Cohen wrote an editorial in Roll Call on the dangers of 'hateful rhetoric' and 'reckless speech', he wrote: "Reckless and hateful speech often have a terrible human cost. If the events in Arizona are not enough to modulate our public discourse, it is likely there will be more violence and more deaths", also mentioned by Cooper. Cooper also nails him by pulling up an audio clip of his comments saying the Tea Party is like the KKK. So much for that civility...
