At an event at a Boca Raton synagogue, Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) said that the United States should let Russia invade Georgia. Beginning at the 3:50 mark in the following YouTube video, which was recorded by Pamela Geller of the blog Atlas Shrugs, Nadler says:
Someone in the crowd says: "Because they invaded Georgia."
Nadler retorts: "So let 'em invade Georgia. It's right next to them. Would we tolerate a foreign--a Russian army in Mexico? Which is more important to us Georgia or Israel, frankly?"
Another voice in the crowd asks Nadler: "What is more important to us Czechoslovakia or Austria?"
"That's a completely separate kind of question," Nadler replies.
Update: At the beginning of the video, Geller mentions that the BBC reported there were phone banks in Gaza for Obama. Nadler replies: "Oh that's nonsense. ... You can invent facts, or read some stupid blog that invents a fact. ... I have never heard until this moment the allegation that someone's got phone banks in Gaza. If that were the case there would have been headlines all over the place. ... It would have been all over Fox News, and then everybody would have been answering it. ... It would have been a major campaign issue." Nadler needs to start reading conservative blogs.
