Miami-Dade Commissioner Javier Souto quotes a dead Nazi

I'm never surprised at the stupid comments that emanate from the building at 111 NW 1st Street.

But the quote Miami-Dade commissioner Javier Souto allegedly uttered last week, could be the Mother of All Stupid Quotes.

According to the Miami Herald's Patricia Mazzei, Souto compared [news] reporters to Nazi propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels.
“The news people who keep repeating lies or things that are not such, and they — it doesn’t matter if you tell them it is not like that, they just keep saying it. It’s like Goebbels, in the days of Hitler,” he said. “Repeat a lie, repeat a lie, [so] that it stays.”
But, if Souto is going to quote Goebbels, he might want to quote him correctly. To make sure he gets it right next time, here's a handy cheat sheet I made up for the commissioner.
