White House to Rush: You’re “on thin ice”

Friday, August 7, 2009

rush-2

The White House today bitch slapped Rush Limbaugh specifically, as well as other rightwing bloviators in general, who have compared President Obama to Adolf Hitler and his policies to Nazism, saying the critics are “on thin ice” and should “take that temperature down a bit.”

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs bristled when pressed to respond to Limbaugh’s analogies between Obama and Hitler. Gibbs replied:

“I know the president feels strongly that we can discuss these issues without personally maligning, that we are doing so in a way that respects the dignity of each individual. I think anytime you make references to what happened in Germany in the 30’s and 40’s, I think you are talking about an event that has no equivalent. And I think anytime anyone ventures to compare anything to that, they are on thin ice, and it is best not employed.”

    As I’ve said before, I am not a violent person but, I would relish, cherish, beating the shit out of Rush Limbaugh.

    Few people bring this behavior out in me but, if I ever encountered Fatso on the street, he’s going to lose his front teeth.

  2. odmono says:

    But its okay when the democrats equate those who disagree with O
    bamas health care plan to nazis. A little hypocritical me thinks. Where’s the Whitehouse outrage towards Pelosi and Reid? Are they on thin ice as well?

  3. bradfrmphnx says:

    What Big Hank said. Back to back assholes with Beck and Limburgher. Both whining about the mean nasty who is “ruining America.” The country that has stood strong for centuries is being torn asunder right before our very eyes!!!Freakin’ Nazis the leftys are!!!

    Cripsey…after 8 years of Bushit. We have to listen to this? I hope Obama does a thorough IRS search on all of them.

  4. Raffi says:

    Rush Limbaugh is an idiot. He’s the de facto leader of a party that is out of power, out of ideas, out of energy, and out of favor. He lives in the gutter, where drug use and little boys define his existence. It’s remarkable to me that a moron like him could have a radio program and get paid millions. If I were a Republican, I would be appalled by him.

  5. When he and others like Beck equate the President with Hitler, they are provoking an argument and violence, something that has worked wonderfully.

    I have no problem with people who disagree with the administration and its policies. But! They must argue their position based on on the merits; on the factual specifics. That’s fine.

    But what they are doing is very simply…evil..

  6. fairlane says:

    Obviously Junk Limbaugh is only on metaphorical thin ice, as real thin ice could not support his fat ass.

  7. Jim says:

    That fucking fat ass. Pathetic excuse for a human. I just wish he would enjoy his drugs and let the rest of SANE humanity alone.

  8. Randy Arroyo says:

    “Step right up, folks, .25 cents for a chance to bash the bouncing Limbaugh on his head.” Winners get a teddy bear of the Obamabear.

  9. Abby Peripatetic says:

    As much as despise Rush Limbaugh, I would fight to the end for his right to say whatever he wants to say.

    He’s a pawn; a shill; and not very informed but, even a moron like Limbaugh enjoys the free speech as guaranteed by the First Amendment.

    This is a bitter pill for people to swallow but it is one of the pillars of what makes this country great. We have the freedon to say what we want.

    I would like to see the media stop covering his every word as if he’s relevant. Limbaugh was never relevant.

  10. JollyRoger says:

    I’m guessing odorono and the rest of the “dildoheads” don’t realize it, but when their dope addict hero and Herr Beck use the kind of fearmongering tactics they’re using, they’re behaving…. yep. Just like the Nazis did. And they’re doing it for the same reasons the Nazis did it. They are getting the RESULTS their heroes got as well, with the new “brownshirts” barging into peaceful meetings in a manner very much reminiscent of the way Hitler’s brownshirts used to break up meetings of Social Democrats and Communists.

    Those Rushpublicans sure have a lot to be proud of, don’t they?

  11. Solomon says:

    How could he even compare the two?

    *scratching head*

    Great blog, just stopped by to say “HI”.
    Found you following daddybstrong.

    I am not that fond of Rush; but I haven’t seen any offering proof of who was out of order at these meetings. What few meetings of this nature I am aware of there have been no such troublemakers. Even the last one aired by NBC; it showed no one being out of order. The interesting thing I did observe is that both opposing groups were loud. Likewise I find it interesting that quite a few of you have offered your views with no supporting data, and have judged Rush on this perhaps because you don’t like him. Many of you have assumed the Republicans to be the troublemakers. Assumptions such as this just make the condition of our country worse. In the very county where I live they have allowed Democrats to voice their views at the court house square, but not the Republicans. But I am not cursing you guys for this even though many of you seem to be Democrats.

  13. Gary Smith says:

    If wondering why someone might compare this administration to the Nazis one would first need to do some research and perhaps attend some meetings. Those who have been known to be disruptive are t hose of Acorn. In fact consider some of the words of a former member who attests to the type of intimidation often used; and in fact practiced by Acorn workers: “Muscle for Money has generated significant opposition within ACORN.

    “I don’t mind being up on a soapbox to get someone’s attention but I would much rather talk and negotiate, said Karen Inman, a Minnesota resident and former ACORN national board member. “But I just refuse to go someone’s home, that’s a privacy issue and I think this “Muscle for Money” program really went too far.”

    Inman and Marcel Reid, a former board member based in Washington D.C., formed ACORN 8 in October 2008 after the national leadership blocked their lawsuit seeking information about an embezzlement scandal involving top ACORN executives.

    The lack of financial transparency and the continued use of Muscle for Money techniques remain top concerns for the whistleblower organization, which has about 30 dues paying members in multiple states, Inman said.

    Some of the more prominent Muscle for Money targets to date have included the Carlyle Group, Sherwin-Williams, H&R Block, Jackson Hewitt, Liberty Tax and Money Mart, according to Anita Moncrief, a former ACORN employee and now an ACORN 8 member.

    “The idea is to go to private homes where wives and children are present and stand outside so the family members of a company official could be harassed and subjected to intimidation,” said MonCrief. “Protestors would also go to company functions like banquets where they would be as disruptive as possible.”

    ACORN actually had a contract with SEIU to target the Caryle Group, MonCrief said. The most aggressive campaigns directed against this company occurred in the fall of 2007.

    “The company was building dental centers in downtown D.C. and SEIU wanted some union arrangement but Carlyle would not back down,” Moncrief said.

    Carlyle Group did not respond to an Examiner request for comment on its dealings with SEIU, ACORN and the Muscle for Money program.

    Sick the IRS on him & dog him with eternal audits…
    he’s earned it.

  15. JollyRoger says:

    I am not that fond of Rush

    And then everything past that first line of the first sentence is a bunch of half truths, talking points, slanders, and outright lies that sounds like it came straight from the EIB studios. A dildohead pretending to not be a dildohead; we’ve never seen THAT one before now, have we?

  16. bradfrmphnx says:

    Gary Smith’s lengthy manifesto is copied word for word from this blog….

    http://www.sfexaminer.com/opinion/ACORNs-Muscle-for-Money-does-the-bidding-of-SEIU–50091427.html

    Hey Gary, if you are going to try to act like you are smart you might want to give credit for the writing you are copying BEFORE you wander about the blogosphere plagiarizing.

  17. Harry says:

    I didn’t know ACORN was the topic of this thread? I thought the topic was Limbaugh saying President Obama is Hitler and the White House’s response?

  18. Mauigirl says:

    Glad the White House sent that message. Enough with putting up with these people as if you can argue reasonably with them.

  19. firemant23 says:

    You people are such a waste of space. All of you blinded useless Demoncrats are not going to be happy until this country becomes you hippy commie state. Anytime someone has a intelligent response they are fat, or lazy, or a oh no a racist. I never ever thought that a grown adult with a different opinion would be chastized in such a way. Oh yeah and you sloths can no longer blame Bush. (news flash, hes not in office)

  20. JollyRoger says:

    inbred23 is the picture-perfect example of what the punditry and Palin are pandering to; an obvious racist, he’s more worried that a dirty brown type might have access to healthcare than he is about whether or not CIGNA will let him die later because treating him wouldn’t be cost-effective. Probably because of the effects of inbreeding on cognitive abilities, he’s bought into the lunatic ravings of a 400 lb dope addict and truly believes that Obama intends to turn him upside-down, shake him till every penny falls out of his pockets, and then take his hard earned money and give it to all those undeserving darkies.

    News Flash, inbred23: claiming that the President wants to euthanize Grandma isn’t an intelligent response, nor is claiming that we’re just trying to pass out free penicillin to 40 million illegal immigrants (and has anyone but me notice that the claimed number of supposed illegals has doubled some way or other since the healthcare debate started? Strange, that is.)

  21. bradfrmphnx says:

    Why is it that all the trolls, like inbred23, write like they didn’t get past the 6th grade, talk like they are a hillbilly with a chaw o’ terbaccy, and make countless spelling and grammatical errors? Its like Limburgher is spoon feeding them rightwingnut baby food formula on one end, and they come on here and shit out hyperbole on the other.

    Oh yeah I remember now…its because they are stupid.

  22. firemant23 says:

    oh well your words like troll and inbred are so advanced yourself there peckerhead. i hope every lefty continues to enjoy the koolaide they are being fed. obama has more brewing for you to suckle on from his commie teets! its rather amusing because i live on the out skirts of the largest city in my pink-o commie liberal peoples republic state. so ok yeah me some back wood fooler. duh. next time your pinky little squandering self sits down to enjoy your rooty tooty tofu thanks a hillbilly terbaccy chewin fool. they grew the food that you shove into your liberal blood sucking gullet!

  23. firemant23 says:

    VOTE DEMOCRAT! its sure beats working!

  24. Bwana Jim says:

    firemant23, why don’t you go fuck yourself?

    Then cash your welfare check.

  25. Peace Nick says:

    I always thought the dittoheads defined themselves as “law and order conservatives?”

    So, how can they embrace a man who scored dope with his maid in a gas station parking lot at 3AM?

    This sounds like anything but “law and order conservatives.”

  26. JollyRoger says:

    pissant23 is a graphci illustration of the dangers of limited DNA.

    So you think Cousin Janie is looking pretty good these days, huh? Please, do society a favor and THINK AGAIN.

  27. JollyRoger says:

    “graphic.” dyslexia. Ugh.

  28. bradfrmphnx says:

    No spelling police here JollyRoger. (Ha-ha)
    Its hard for trolls to type with 3 thumbs and 7 fingers, so they often come off sounding like backwoodsy inbreds.

  29. TOM339 says:

    Limbaugh sounds like he’s back on dope.

    I don’t listen to him so I can’t be sure but no sane person would compare President Obama to Adolph Hitler.

  30. robert firth says:

    Rush is right.
    husain obama represents the greatest threat to the security of America than the Soviet Union ever did. He hates this country and will do everything in his power to destroy it. Only the young and very stupid can possibly support him- unfortunately, that group represents a very large number.
