But we knew that, part of that started when they realized he was going to win, way back last year. They attacked everything about him, actually when it became obvious he was a serious candidate and even had a chance of coming in close to second to Hillary. Because, NO ONE could beat Hillary. Especially not a black man named Barack Hussein Obama.
But he did defeat Hillary and then went on to defeat McCain, war hero, POW, and become the 44th President. That's when the heads of the people on the right side of America exploded.
It seemed this week things got just a little more over the top than usual. Maybe it was the loss of two of their rising stars, in Ensign and Sanford, when they both admitted to having affairs, that caused Beck and Limbaugh to go off their rockers just a bit more this week and say some pretty extraordinary things.
Rush was all about hoping for this to happen this week, but not in a good way. Listen to this if you can stand it.
Yeah, that's right, Rush is all for a Coup here in America, for us having an overthrow of the Government and someone violently taking back the country and putting someone else in charge.. Not sure who he wants in there.. Maybe him.. Oh, I got it..
That's why Palin resigned Friday.. He had it all planned out.
Then the next day he tried to say that the President was not praising the troops and that he didn't support the troops and said he had sought the defeat of the troops in Iraq.
Then on July 1, he said this, "This is Barack Obama, who led from the United States Senate his party into doing everything he could to ensure the defeat of the U.S. military. ... This party was doing everything it could to impugn and dishonor the military."
As David Neiwart from Crooks & Liars says and I quote:
This thread of commentary clearly is pushing toward a single thought -- to push people in the armed forces into seeing Obama as a usurper and traitor, just like the Honduran president, and toward the idea that a similar military-based removal of him from office might be justified.
Keep in mind that Limbaugh is only of only four pundits still broadcast daily on Armed Services Radio, so our men and women in uniform are getting fed this garbage on a daily basis. (And Wes Clark was right: It is well past time to take him off.)
Limbaugh in fact is picking up on sentiments already circulating on the right. Larisa Alexandrovna at AtLargely picked up on the chatter going on at various right-wing blogs after Honduras coup, pointing in particular to the Gateway Pundit's commenters, who posted such items as the following:
I am sure I missed part of his comments, but you get the gist of it. These are just from 3 days this week, when he was promoting a Coup to overthrow the President.
Next we come to Glenn Beck and his guests. First is Michelle Bachmann. She has been on his show numerous times. Lately her big thing is the census.
Of course she has also been on lately about Cap & Trade or the ACES bill which just passed the House, which Beck used to point out the 8 republicans as Traitors and put up their phone numbers so everyone could call them and threaten them for voting for it.
But the topper for Beck this week was when he had a former CIA agent on with him.. yes, a great America loving, patriotic, former CIA agent named Michael Scheuer. His great claim to fame was he served as the Chief of the Bin Laden Issue Station.
That just makes what he had to say on the show with Beck even more strange. Watch this.
It is actually hard to believe someone would come right out and say they wanted the US to be attacked in order to help us or save us or something. I am not quite sure I get the reasoning behind it. But that's what he said. Like I said, its been a hell of a week for the right side of America. And by right, I sure don't mean the CORRECT.
Jon Stewart took it on and gave his take on it too. At least someone in the "media" is paying attention. You would think something this outrageous would get the attention of someone, but nope, not a soul said a word. So, here is Jon Stewart:
|The Daily Show With Jon Stewart||Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c|
|Osama bin Laden Needs to Attack America|
Anyway, these are just a couple of things I have noticed.. I am sure there are more out there, but these caught my eye. Meanwhile, the "MEDIA" is busy giving the Obama Administration trouble about calling on a blogger at a presser, possibly picking questions for the Town Hall on Health Care the President had and we have this nonsense going on and no one says a word.
Matt Osborne did a great write up about the media and their nonsense stories today at his place. You should check it out.
So, let me know what you think, and what stories you have seen, what is making the wingnuts head explode in your neck of the woods?
