Democratic members of the U.S. House have introduced a resolution condemning remarks made last week by Rep. Allen West, R-Fort Lauderdale.

It was reported late last week that West told reporters the Democratic Party messaging would impress Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. Politico reported that West said, “If Joseph Goebbels was around, he’d be very proud of the Democrat Party because they have an incredible propaganda machine.”

“I think that you have, and let’s be honest, you know, some of the people in the media are complicit in this, in enabling them to get that type of message out,” West told reporters.

Almost immediately, groups such as the Anti-Defamation League were denouncing his remarks.

Today, however, The Palm Beach Post reports that House Dems have filed a resolution in response.

The* Post* reports:

On what may be the final day of House business in 2011, U.S. Rep. Donna Edwards, D-Md., has introduced a resolution condemning U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Plantation, for saying last week that Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels would be “very proud” of Democratic efforts to blame congressional dysfunction on the GOP.

It’s not immediately clear when or whether the resolution will come up for a vote.

Reading from the resolution on the House floor this afternoon, Edwards said: “Such outrageous Holocaust analogies have no place in our political dialogue. They are offensive, they trivialize real historical events and they diminish the memory of the 6 million Jews and millions of others who perished in the Holocaust.”

The proposed resolution calls West’s conduct “repugnant” and says the House “disapproves of the behavior of the Representative of Florida, Mr. West, for bringing discredit to the House by offending the memory of those who died during the Holocaust.”

West has been known for making incendiary comments aimed at Democrats in the passed. He is currently gearing up for a competitive reelection campaign as the state of Florida finalizes its redistricting plans.
