Wingnut Rush Limbaugh pontificates at a hospital in Hawaii, where he recently survived a heart-attack scare, unfortunately.
Black lesbian comedian Wanda Sykes stirred some controversy when, at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, in response to Rush Limbaugh’s proclamation that he hopes that President Barack Obama’s White House administration fails, she said of Limbaugh: “I hope his kidneys fail.”
I hope so, too — but I’m not kidding. (Although she probably wasn’t, either…)
What the fuck is the matter with the wingnuts?
Limbaugh has accused President Obama of encouraging aid to Haitians in light of this past week’s devastating earthquake only to score political points.
If Obama had ignored the Haitian situation, as George W. Bush would have done, as he did Hurricane Katrina, then the wingnuts hypocritically would have accused Obama of not having done his job, but when Obama did acknowledge the Haitians’ crisis, the wingnuts accuse him of having done so only for personal political gain.
Obama can’t fucking win with the fucking wingnuts, because the wingnuts’ main problem with Obama is that he is black, and the wingnuts are racists and white supremacists.
The majority of the wingnuts call themselves “Christians.” Would Jesus have ignored the Haitians’ plight? Would Jesus have said, as wingnut Pat Robertson said, that the Haitians brought the earthquake upon themselves because they’d “sworn a pact with the devil”?
No, Jesus the socialist would have jumped in to help. (Jesus the socialist wouldn’t have opposed health care for all, would not have supported health care only for those who can afford it in our sick and twisted for-profit wealth care system, either.)
The Repugnicans claim that they’re not racist, but they demonstrate that they are racist and white supremacist time and time again. They inappropriately and illegally removed blacks from the voters’ rolls in order to “win” George W. Bush Florida in 2000, then they ignored Hurricane Katrina because it affected mostly black Americans, and now they criticize Barack Obama for helping the Haitians — who brought the earthquake upon themselves, of course. Tell the maimed and orphaned children of Haiti that they brought it upon themselves. After all, that’s what Jesus would have done!
The right wing has been so thoroughly discredited that I don’t know how it even still exists, even in its weakened form.
Here is Rush Limbaugh trying to score political points by accusing President Obama of trying to score political points by doing the right thing, by doing what Jesus would do.
Is Limbaugh even aware of his own hypocrisy?
The best thing that we can say about people like Pat Robertson and Rush Limbaugh (and Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin and Dick Cheney and George W. Bush, et. al., et. al.) is that they will die one day.
But that day can’t come quickly enough.
