Rush: London’s Olympic Opening ceremony ‘socialist’
It is a good couple of days for Socialism. The UK honored their socialist health care system at the Olympic opening ceremony in London and since Mitt was at that event it must have hypnotized him making Mitt praise Israel’s socialist health care system and its superiority to the American capitalist version. Those tricky pinkos!!!
Friday’s Olympic opening ceremony in London was ‘more socialist’ than the Beijing version four years ago, and a tribute to the National Health Service included in the performance was ‘done on behalf of’ President Barack Obama, Rush Limbaugh claimed Monday.
‘Of all the things that you want to honor,’ he said on his radio show. ‘I mean, the people of Great Britain don’t even like the National Health Service! And then it hit me, and then it hit me. It was actually done on behalf of President Kardashian. They did it for Obama. Nobody will convince me otherwise.’
Limbaugh called film director Danny Boyle, who directed the ceremonies, a ‘big leftist.’ The performance featured actual NHS nurses.
In response to a question from a caller, Limbaugh said the London ceremony was ‘more socialist’ than the performance to open the 2008 games in China ‘because a free people willingly gave up.’
‘Of all the things of historical note in Great Britain, United Kingdom, the things they chose to highlight about themselves in that opening ceremony scared me more, because that’s a free people basically honoring socialism and collectivism,’ he said, according to a transcript. ‘The [Chinese] people had no choice. They are under orders and under guns. In the U.K., a free people decided to do it.’
