Rush Limbaugh has sparked liberal outrage with his claim that Obama used children at yesterday's press conference as "a human shield."
Liberal politics show The Young Turks has labeled Limbaugh's riff "despicable" and "one of the most obnoxious segments Limbaugh has ever done." And Wednesday's most-recommended post on the Daily Kos is headlined "The Filthy, Cowardly, Repugnant Limbaugh Mocks Children." Leftist critics are particularly upset that Limbaugh seems to mimic kids who are crying because they're afraid of getting shot.
But on the other side of the political aisle, Fox's Eric Bolling praised Limbaugh for slamming Obama's use of kids, and for doing it "in a way only Rush can communicate." Bolling himself lashed Obama for "casting children for a presser," asking "is there no level to which the left will not stoop to impose their will?"
Watch the Limbaugh clip here and decide for yourself (the relevant footage is at 00:25 - 00:50):
Why give this Nazi gasbag any attention at all? He's nothing but a racist hatemonger and anyone who listens to him is too. I'm tired of hearing "you don't listen to him so you don't understand Rush", or "Rush is an entertainer". Anyone who makes his living peddling hate like Limbaugh does is the lowest form of life. If the moderators see fit to remove this post so be it. Rush and his audience are scum.
Why "liberal" outrage? I can understand Limbaugh fans are so down deep in the gutter they wouldn't know decency if it walked right over them but I would think there should be many decent, honest conservatives that don't like this drug-abusing clown "representing" the Republicans, at all.
Why would anyone care what this third rate entertainer thinks? He's deeply out of touch with reality, and does nothing but pander to his base for profit. The funny part is, his base is too dim to figure out that they are being used.
@bsking Just never could understand how you can be for killing babies but don't want folks to be able to protect themselves with a gun and is it worse to shoot each other at 18 as opposed to stabbing a baby in the neck before its first breath?
Amen I agree 100% also we must also not hesitate to consider how we as a society, with radical secular progressive liberal union teachers, are possibly contributing to the growth of these academic killing fields. they have created value less God less children.
Who cares about liberal outrage? I most certainly do not. When did liberals start caring about dead children? They are the ones who keep the abortion mills running. They hate Rush because of his ideology and they are flat out jealous of the audience he gets. Liberals are never happy. They are always offended. Who cares? LOL! Next.
@Cheenoguy I am offended at your gross mischaracterization of republican priorities. How dare you claim that money is the #2 priority of the GOP. There never was and never will be a time that money is not the Number One priority of the republicans.
@Cheenoguy Take your own advice. Obviously the fact that you're using profanity in response already ruins your credibility here. I have read books, you should perhaps do the same. BTW, I got a 4.0 in History.
Actually, Hitler liberalized Germany's gun laws when he took power. The Weimar Republic banned firearms altogether. Hitler first stripped citizenship from "undesirables" and then passed laws that allowed private citizens to own anything but handguns. This created a citizenry with military grade weapons that, unfortunately, did little or nothing to impede Allied forces from taking Berlin.
Is Hussein Obama back on the mary jane? It sure looked like it from all those wierd and strange looks he kept making during that phoney speech he made. Before I turned the sound up I couldn't tell if he was making a speech or droping a duece...
Even though I don't listen to Limbaugh, he isn't the only one who's saying this. Lots of people feel that he's just using the children's presence on his stage as fodder for his hate campaign. As to the one who said fetuses aren't yet children, WHAT!! Your ignorance is showing in a glaring way.
It's a good thing you only insulted me and didn't use naughty words or you would be getting warnings from topix.
Fetuses aren't children. They are potential children. If it can't live on its own it isn't life yet.
I'm not upset that he is critical of children being in the stage. I think it's a stupid thing to be upset about, but I don't care. I find it offensive that he mocked children who are scared that they might be the next victim of a psychotic school shooter.
