The chairman of the Democratic Party in California walked back his statements comparing Rep. Paul Ryan to a Nazi propagandist on Monday, shortly before emceeing an event ahead of the Democratic National Convention.

In an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle, John Burton said Ryan’s convention speech last week contained fabrications that amounted to a “bold-faced lie.”

“They lie and they don’t care if people think they lie … Joseph Goebbels – it’s the big lie, you keep repeating it – a bold-faced lie and he doesn’t care that it was a lie. That was Goebbels, the big lie,” Burton said Monday before a breakfast for the California delegation in Charlotte, North Carolina.

A close partner of Adolf Hitler, Goebbels held a top leadership position in the Third Reich, where he was largely in charge of designing propaganda and anti-Semitic messaging for the party.
