Doing what Liberals do best, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) is now blaming the media for misrepresenting his ‘Nazi’ statements made recently on the senate floor.
U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., says right-wing media misrepresented comments he made about abuse of terror suspects, which he compared to Nazi abuses.
Durbin late Tuesday read what he said was an e-mail message from an FBI agent regarding alleged prisoner abuse. Durbin said if it didn’t identify the source of the information “you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags or some mad regime.”
Several high-ranking Republicans responded Thursday. Sen. John Warner, R-Va., said, “The danger the loose comments such as that, comparison which have no basis in fact or history, could do harm to the men and women” in the U.S. military. Warner called for an apology.
Durbin did not, however, back down. Saying he wasn’t criticizing service personnel, he blamed the right-wing media for taking his words out of context. He said abusive treatment of prisoners was something most likely in “repressive regimes” than the United States.
When the heat is on, blame the right wing conspiracy. It didn’t work for Hillary and it won’t work for you Dick. Your comments are in the record Senator, so it’s a little late for you to be claiming that you didn’t say what you did in fact say.
