I try to remember how rough I was on George W. Bush, and I do know I never called him names, but I would jump on all the ludicrous things he would do and say. That seems like fair game to me. But now that we have our first African-American President - the name-calling and treatment has crossed a clearly disseminated line.
Apparently today, Rush Limbaugh (on his radio show) made the comparison of Hitler to Obama. Inexcusable and worthy of an apology.
Did I dream that during Bush's term he stomped all over our rights and privacy's?? Of course, that must be different as it was all done in the name of "war on terror." Limbaugh's analogy is hurtful on so many levels. There are still survivors of the Holocaust living in this country, who vividly remember Hitler and the Nazi party well. Just the mention of Hitler conjours up images of torture and death.
This fukktard is even stating that Obama's health care logo is almost identical to the Nazi swastika. The truly sad element in this story - is the brain dead conservatives who live by every word spewing from his vile mouth.
With Orly Taitz repeatedly referring to "brownshirts" and gestapo tactics - now Limbaugh and his references...it scares the living hell out of me. The right is making every effort to convince people of a dictatorship and nothing is offered in the way of solutions to the mess they made over the last eight years.
The demonstrations at the town hall meetings have seen those involved, yelling out scripted verse, all relating to a dictatorship. So, this is where we are headed folks. The right needed a platform of sorts and have chosen the "evil" path.
This upsets me to no end - and heaven forbid someone would choose to get in my face and yell garbage such as this. I would definitely need bail money!
