April 3, 2019
Press Release

Washington, DC— Wednesday, Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) released the following statement in response to the Alabama Holocaust Commission’s letter (linked HERE) condoning “Big Lie” propaganda tactics:

“The Big Lie Propaganda Tactic used by Germany’s Socialist Party in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s caused horrific damage and is responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of innocent people during the Holocaust and World War II. The Germany Socialist Party’s use of the Big Lie Propaganda Tactic is history’s most infamous example of the Big Lie Propaganda Tactic’s use. As such, its citation is entirely appropriate as a way to learn from history’s mistakes rather than repeat them.”

“Just as the Big Lie Propaganda Tactic is bad and horrific when used by German Socialists to justify actions that killed tens of millions of innocent people, the Big Lie Propaganda Tactic is similarly bad and potentially horrific when used in America to strike at the very heart of our republic’s elections.”

“Rather than attack those who oppose the use of the Big Lie Propaganda Tactic that had such horrific consequences long ago, the Alabama Holocaust Commission should learn from history and condemn its use by Socialist Democrats in America who have claimed, without credible supporting evidence (as determined by the Mueller Report), that President Trump colluded with the Russians to steal the 2016 presidential election.”

“America’s Socialist Democrats’ Big Lie attacked and sought to undermine the reputation and integrity of America’s elections and, in the process, struck at the very heart of our Republic.”

“I am astonished and saddened that the Alabama Holocaust Commission, by its letter, refuses to learn from history and fails to condemn the Big Lie Propaganda Tactic regardless of where, when or how it is used. Too much is at stake to do otherwise.”

“Has humanity learned nothing from history? The Alabama Holocaust Commission could and should be better.”

“The Alabama Holocaust Commission’s bizarre and history-ignoring letter prompts one to wonder how many of the Commission’s members joined America’s Socialist Democrats in undermining the legitimacy of the 2016 presidential election by also spreading the ‘Big Lie,’ without credible evidence, that President Trump colluded with the  Russians to steal the 2016 presidential race.”
