Shorter Rush Limbaugh:
Wouldn’t it be awesome if we killed all the poors so they can’t vote for the black guy?
The ACS national meeting was in town this week so I didn’t have time for blogging. This morning I figured I’d try to catch up on all the important events I missed and it turned out there weren’t any. Apparently, we spent the week discussing a reproductive issue that should have been made clear in highschool biology.
My favorite story of the week, though, was this one. Rush Limbaugh informs us that Barack Obama is a sorcerer and that hurricanes have a well known liberal bias. On the latter point, I have to say I’m surprised. I always thought hurricanes were, in fact, conservative, as they tend to spend the majority of their time punishing America for the gays.
But now I see that hurricanes have a split, divisive political system much like our own. And naturally, Rush is right. No self respecting conservative hurricane would find itself in an urban area like Tampa. Everyone knows the cities vote democrat.
Here’s Rush Limbaugh, responding to a speech by Barack Obama in which he emphasized the role of government in supporting the private sector:
This is a bunch of people that don’t count. This is a bunch of people with miserable, meaningless lives who are lying to themselves; trying to tell themselves that they matter.
This is a bunch of meaningless people (who know that their lives don’t account for anything) trying to matter, and coming up with this ridiculous philosophy that says, “Successful people have not done it on their own. Successful people only exist because of the nameless, faceless, real, true hard workers.” You know, before Marx there was no such thing as class-driven economics. If that guy had been aborted, we’d have a whole different world today.
I’ll tell you what. I think it can now be said, without equivocation — without equivocation — that this man hates this country. He is trying — Barack Obama is trying — to dismantle, brick by brick, the American dream.
There’s no other way to put this.
This is what we have as a president: A radical ideologue, a ruthless politician who despises the country and the way it was founded and the way in which it became great.
He hates it.
So there you go. If you disagree with Rush Limbaugh, then you are a miserable person who’s life does not matter, and you hate this country. Good to know. I’ll tell you what. I think I can now say, without equivocation – without equivocation – that this man hates anyone that can think. He is trying – Rush Limbaugh is trying – to dismantle, bit by bit, any semblance of rational thought in his followers.
See what I did there?
I was reading an article about the low sales figures for the Chevy Volt this morning, and this line jumped out at me:
Conservatives started denouncing the company (Rush Limbaugh called GM “a corporation that’s trying to kill its customers”).
Seriously? This is a thing now? It’s a damn car. Why is it political? Is this a “the Volt is a hippy tree hugger car and as a conservative I hate the environment and you should buy a Hummer” thing?
Is that what’s going on here? Or is it a “GM is a proxy for Obama so any excuse to attack it is great” thing? Both?
