I have to admit, I always considered Rush Limbaugh to be somewhat of a joke. A blowhard and entertainer who mastered the art of political entertainment. I know he has his loyal devotees, but I always thought those people were on the fringes of society to begin with. Most people, I thought, just listened to him to be entertained and to enjoy his truculent exchanges with his political foes.
But now.....I don't know Rush, if this is all a game for you, maybe it's time you came clean. Hell you made enough money. Just go on down to DR and have fun with your under aged friends (allegedly, supposedly, and all that stuff) and call it a day. I mean this is getting dangerous.
I think you have fired up the base enough. To them, this is not just entertainment and political theater. To them, this is about the Kenyan and his ultra liberal buddies taking their beloved country. Rush, I don't think they can tell the difference between reality and entertainment, but I think you already know that.
Even for you, the Nazi stuff was over the top. You and Beck with all this Nazi talk is starting to scare us normal thinking folks. ("Killing the elderly and the newborn"? Are you serious?) Quite a few of the people on the right side of the political spectrum are just looking for the slightest reason to snap, and the events of the last few days have convinced me that it doesn't take too much to send them over the edge. But I am starting to think that Rush knows that, too.
Rush went as far as to compare the Obama health care logo to a Nazi symbol, and he suggested that it was intentional.
Don't laugh. This is how Rush compares the dems to Nazis:
"Well, the Nazis were against big business -- they hated big business. And of course we all know that they were opposed to Jewish capitalism. They were insanely, irrationally against pollution. They were for two years mandatory voluntary service to Germany. They had a whole bunch of make-work projects to keep people working, one of which was the Autobahn. They were against cruelty and vivisection of animals, but in the radical sense of devaluing human life, they banned smoking. They were totally against that. They were for abortion and euthanasia of the undesirables, as we all know, and they were for cradle-to-grave nationalized healthcare."
How can lunatics on the right ignore these dog whistles? They can't. And I am starting to believe that Rush and company doesn't want them to. All this can't be just about health insurance reform? I wonder what it could be? Hmmmmmmmm.
Seriously folks, I wonder if Rush and company realize that the product of Kanya (That's Kansas and Kenya, get it?) is receiving up to 30 death threats a day now? That's up almost 400% from previous presidents.
Ahh what was I thinking? Of course he does.
