Limbaugh: “Anybody that’s not an Obamaite is an enemy of the state.”
Rush makes the same idiotic comparison of Democratic Party policies and Communism that’s been going on for decades. It’s especially ridiculous when you consider that many of Obama’s economic policies are, in many ways, consistent with Republican Party beliefs in that they are market oriented. Especially ObamaCare, which was in large part based on Republican and conservative ideas.
And then there’s all this “enemy of the state” nonsense. As if Obama is a Stalinist. As if he had anything to do with what happened to Catherine Engelbrecht, Ayaan Hirisi Ali, or Brendan Eich.
To even suggest he did, as Rush does, is so monumentally stupid that it isn’t worthy of comment. But this is a microcosm of conservative thinking, as it has been for decades now.
This kind of “thinking” is somewhat converse to fine wine, in that it gets dumber with age:
THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS PUNITIVE THE DEMOCRAT PARTY HAS AN ENEMIES LIST AND IT’S ANYBODY WHO SUCCEEDS WHO IS NOT A MEMBER OF THE CLAN!!!!!!!!!!11ty
What does equality of income mean? Well how would you do it? Would you base it on family size? Would you base it on hours worked? Would you base it on what somebody supposedly needs?…If you’re going to have income equality, everyone’s going to have enough income to do what? To buy what? Everybody’s going to be able to own what? Who’s going to decide this? The places and the countries that have tried this, nobody owns anything, except the leaders. There is no property, nobody’s allowed to own property. So that question’s dealt with right off the bat. Nobody’s going to have enough to own anything, and nobody’s going to be permitted to own anything. The state is going to own everything. And if you stay in good graces with the state, then you’ll be okay, as far as okay gets you. But if you’re not, you’re an enemy of the state, and that’s what we are today. Anybody that’s not an Obamaite is an enemy of the state. Anybody that’s not all in with Eric Holder is an enemy of the state. Talk to Catherine Engelbrecht, talk to Arian (sic) Hirsi Ali, talk to Brendan Eich…Who’s going to make these determinations of who gets what? Who’s going to make these determinations of what we all need to be equal? The same people who brought us ObamaCare? The same people who run the DMV? The same people running the climate change movement?…the same people who can routinely get a CEO fired for giving $1000 to a proposition that says marriage is that between a man and a woman? Can you imagine that believing marriage is between a man and a woman is enough to get you exiled in the United States of America?
