I agree with Locker, this is inexcusable.

Ryan is a liar and a reactionary tool, but he is not a Nazi. Goebbels did not invent the Big Lie in any case, though he was an expert practitioner and he did popularize the term. The technique had been known to politicians, religious leaders, and free-lance con-artists since ancient, probably prehistoric, times.
