Limbaugh: ‘Defeat’ Democrat ‘Bastards,’ ‘Wipe Them Out’
March 22, 2010
(ChattahBox)—Hate talker and GOP leader Rush Limbaugh, like many Republicans the day after healthcare reform has passed, are licking their wounds and vowing to continue their fight to destroy the Obama administration. Whipping confused teapartiers into frenzied mobs, with lies about death panels and Socialism, was never really about reforming healthcare. It was about taking down the Obama presidency and ensuring that he suffered a defeat. The GOP declared that healthcare reform would be Obama’s “Waterloo.” They came very close to defeating it. And the battle still has not been won, since the bill could unravel in the Senate, if the Republicans have their way. Against this backdrop, hate-monger Rush Limbaugh took to the airways today with some of the most inflammatory, violent, incendiary and race-baiting hate speech, he has unleashed in recent memory. And that’s saying a lot.
Limbaugh went on a rant about defeating Democrats in November, using violent laced and foul language, urging Republicans to defeat the liberal “bastards,” “wipe them out,” “hound” and “hassle” them:
LIMBAUGH: “[T]hey won yesterday. They won because they held congress and the presidency and therein lies the lesson. We need to defeat these bastards. We need to wipe them out. We need to chase them out of town. [...] “They must my friends, be hounded out of office. Every single Democrat who voted for this needs to know, safe district or not, they are going to be exposed and hassled and chased from office. We now have leftist radicals in charge of your healthcare decisions rather than doctors”
The enraged and unhinged Limbaugh then employed race-baiting rhetoric, painting Obama as a resentful, liberal minority member who does not believe in American exceptionalism and instead, views America through the eyes of a foreigner, as a “civil rights violation.” Limbaugh declared that healthcare reform has destroyed the country and Democratic Fidel Castro-loving radicals under Obama, now control the country:
LIMBAUGH: “He has succeeded. The happiness that these people are feeling should sicken every one of us, because the happinesses they are feeling is the happiness derived from the destruction of America as founded. There are people in responsible positions of power in our government today, who have a deep resentment for this country, who have been raised, who have been educated to believe that this country is immoral, unjust.” [...] “They look at this country as one big criminal act — One Big civil rights human rights violation. Don’t doubt me. That is how Obama has been raised to look at this country. And he believes it, and he’s put a lot of people in unaccountable positions in his administration and you know who some of them are…” “The Democrat Party has been co-opted and is now led by a far leftist faction who admire and envy people like Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro.”
And if that wasn’t enough incendiary rhetoric for one afternoon, Limbaugh decided to falsely and offensively claim that Obama promotes infanticide. “We have the most pro-abortion president in the history of the country. This is a guy who believes in infanticide, bellowed Limbaugh.
