Senator Sherrod Brownâ€™s campaign issued a new attack ad Friday against his rival, Republican Josh Mandel. In it, the Ohio Democrat accuses Mandel of using the â€œbig lieâ€ strategy in his campaign. The term â€œbig lieâ€ was coined by Adolf Hitler and is commonly associated with Nazi propaganda.
Mandel is Jewish.
The ad states: â€œJosh Mandel: He has become the candidate of the big lie.â€ It cites a Columbus Dispatch columnist as the source for the quote. It argues that Mandel has made numerous false statements about his career as state treasurer, among other distortions.
Brownâ€™s ad does not specifically mention Nazis, but the term â€œbig lieâ€ is still closely identified with them. Earlier this week, John Burton, chairman of the California delegation to the Democratsâ€™ Charlotte convention, was criticized when he compared Republican Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan to the Nazis and referenced the â€œbig lie.â€
â€œThey lie and they donâ€™t care if people think they lie. Joseph Goebbels. Itâ€™s the big lie, you keep repeating it,â€ Burton told the San Francisco Chronicle. He reiterated the point in an interview with ABC: â€œIf youâ€™re not telling the truth, youâ€™re lying. Joseph Goebbelsâ€™ concept was the big lie. If you tell it enough, people will think itâ€™s the truth.â€
Goebbels was Hitlerâ€™s minister of propaganda.
