Rep. Brooks: 'Fake News Media...Perpetrated the Biggest Political Lie' in American History

( -- In remarks on the House floor about the Mueller report and the "fake news media" that spread unfounded claims for two-plus years about Russia-Trump campaign collusion, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) said the accusations against Trump were "nothing but a Big Lie!" He also compared the liberal media to the National Socialist propaganda organs that operated in Nazi Germany, spreading half-truths and lies to demonize their political opponents.

"For more than two years, Socialist Democrats and their fake news media allies -- CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, Washington Post, and countless others -- have perpetrated the biggest political lie, con, scam and fraud in American history," said Rep. Brooks on March 25. 

"Attorney General Barr’s executive summary of Mueller’s report has publicly confirmed what many of us have known for a long time," he said.  "The accusations of collusion between President Trump and Russia in the 2016 elections are nothing but a Big Lie! ... The Mueller report vindicates President Trump and his 2016 campaign from the Socialists’ baseless, reckless, and false 'Big Lie' charges of Russian election collusion."

"Mueller’s report confirms that Socialist Democrats and their fake news media allies made up nonexistent allegations and engaged in the most sordid 'fake news' 'Big Lie' propaganda, scam, fraud, and smear campaign in American history," said the congressman. 

This Big Lie "scam" inspired "hatred against President Trump and violence against Americans who support America’s foundational principles," he said. Unfortunately, the socialists and fake news media apparently have no intention of apologizing for their unfounded attack and spurious reporting, he added. 

"[T]hey will double down and propagate even more Big Lies because doubling down is essential to 'Big Lie' theory," said Brooks. "In that vein, I quote from another Socialist who mastered 'Big Lie' propaganda to maximum, and deadly, effect."


Representative Brooks then quoted from Adolf Hitler's book Mein Kampf, where the national socialist explained how people are more inclined to believe "colossal untruths" because while they can understand fabricating small lies to get some things done, they find it difficult to imagine that someone, or a government, would manufacture a massive, national lie. It's too big, too fantastic to be false, so to speak. 

"Mr. Speaker, America can either learn from history or be doomed to repeat it," said Brooks.  "When it comes to Big Lie political propaganda in America, as the Mueller report confirms, America’s Socialists and their fake news media allies are experts and have no peers.  Regardless, America must reject their 'Big Lies' or succumb to the danger that lurks, and horrific damage that results."
