Barney Frank Goes On Defensive About "Nazi Policy" Remark, Reverts to His "Ethnic Heritage"

Right - Blast from the past. Frank was once a "spouse" of Herb Moses, an exec at Fannie Mae. More on the Fannie Mae Love Connection here. Investors lost millons in Fannie Mae.

A woman shows up at an ObamaCare Town Hall Meeting and confronts Barney Frank about "Nazi" health care reforms. The woman has shown up at other Town Hall meetings on health care.

In a video from ABC news, she mentions the collapsing economy and the fact that Rahm Emanuel's brother Ezekiel stated, like Hitler, that "certain lives are not worth keeping". When Frank starts going ballistic, her mike gets cut off and she is unable to retort.

The New York Post article on Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel's views on healthcare is here. Ezekiel Emanuel was appointed health-policy adviser at the Office of Management and Budget.

In the ABC video
, the remarks about Nazis are not taken out of context, and in addition, there is a young black man in the audience holding a picture of Obama with a Hitler mustache.

On the Larry King show and other media, the heavily edited video below is the one that got widely shown. The term "Nazi policy" is a stand alone item, with no explanation as to why the term was used. Frank completely scuttles the issue, says "I'm going to revert to my ethnic heritage and answer your question with a question", and calls her remark about Nazis "vile, contemptible nonsense".
