Yesterday on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show, a Republican caller from Chicago named Charles (who said he voted for John McCain) immediately jumps on Rush’s shit and attacks the fatass conservative talk show host for contributing to the Republicans losing the White House last November. I can’t write a better story than the actual dialogue of the call, so here you go:
LIMBAUGH: We're going to go to Chicago. This is Charles. Charles, thank you for waiting and for calling. Great to have you here. Hello.
CALLER: Thanks, Rush. Rush, listen, I voted Republican, and I didn't -- really didn't want to see Obama get in office. But, you know, Rush, you're one reason to blame for this election, for the Republicans losing.
First of all, you kept harping about voting for Hillary. The second big issue is the -- was the torture issue. I'm a veteran. We're not supposed to be torturing these people. This is not Nazi Germany, Red China, or North Korea. There's other ways of interrogating people, and you kept harping about it -- "It's OK," or "It's not really torture." And it was just more than waterboarding. Some of these prisoners were killed under torture.
And it just -- it was crazy for you to keep going on and on like Levin and Hannity and Hewitt. It's like you're all brainwashed.
And my last comment is, no matter what Obama does, you will still criticize him because I believe you're brainwashed. You're just -- and I hate to say it -- but I think you're a brainwashed Nazi. Anyone who could believe in torture just has got to be - there's got to be something wrong with them.
LIMBAUGH: You know --
CALLER: And I know Bush wanted to keep us safe and all of that, but we're not supposed to be torturing these people.
LIMBAUGH: Charles, if anybody is admitting that they're brainwashed it would be you.
CALLER: No, no, no, Rush. I don't think so.
LIMBAUGH: Charles. Charles, Charles --
CALLER: You, Hannity, Hewitt, and Levin are all brainwashed and you know it.
LIMBAUGH: -- you said -- you said at the beginning of your phone call --
LIMBAUGH: -- that you didn't want Obama in there --
CALLER: That's right.
LIMBAUGH: -- but you voted for him because of me.
CALLER: I didn't vote for him. I voted for McCain. I voted Republican.
LIMBAUGH: Oh, so --
CALLER: I voted Republican.
LIMBAUGH: -- you're saying I turned people off to --
CALLER: You turned people off with all your -- all this "vote for Hillary" and all this BS, because you must think people are really stupid.
LIMBAUGH: That was Operation Chaos. That was to keep the --
CALLER: You -- no. It didn't work.
LIMBAUGH: -- chaos in the [unintelligible] of the Democrat primaries.
CALLER: It didn't work. And now what we have with you Hannity, Levin, and Hewitt: sour grapes. That's all we have. And believe me, I'm not -- I'm more to the right than I am to the left.
LIMBAUGH: Oh, of course, you are.
CALLER: I am, and that's --
LIMBAUGH: Of course, you are. You wouldn't be calling here with all these sour grapes if you weren't.
CALLER: Well, I'm so tired of listening to you --
LIMBAUGH: Oh, of course, you are.
CALLER: -- go on and on with this -- you've been brainwashed.
LIMBAUGH: I don't know of anybody who died from torture. I do not ever --
CALLER: We are not supposed to torture people.
LIMBAUGH: I do not ever --
CALLER: Do you remember World War II, the Nazis? The Nuremberg Trials?
LIMBAUGH: I --
CALLER: Do you remember the Nuremberg Trials?
LIMBAUGH: Charles --
CALLER: Klaus Barbie?
LIMBAUGH: Charles, let me say --
LIMBAUGH: Barack Obama --
CALLER: What's the matter with you?
LIMBAUGH: Barack --
CALLER: You never even served in a military.
LIMBAUGH: Barack Obama is --
CALLER: I served in the Marine Corps and the Army.
LIMBAUGH: Charles, Barack Obama is president of the United States today because of stupid, ignorant people who think like you do. You pose -- you and your ignorance are the most expensive commodity this country has. You think you know everything. You don't know diddly-squat.
You call me a Nazi? You call me somebody who supports torture and you want credibility on this program? You know, you're just plain embarrassing and ludicrous. But it doesn't surprise me that you're the kind of Republican that our last candidate attracted. Because you're no Republican at all based on what the hell you've said here.
Listen to the clip
What makes Limpnuts a big fat fraud is the part where he says, "You call me somebody who supports torture and you want credibility on this program?" So, Rush, are you denying that you support torture? Hmmmmmm. Less than 5 years ago, on May 4, 2004, Rush, in response to the U.S. guards mistreatment of Iraqi prisoners, said this:
"This [the torturing of Iraqi prisoners] is no different than what happens at the Skull and Bones initiation and we're going to ruin people's lives over it and we're going to hamper our military effort, and then we are going to really hammer them because they had a good time. You know, these people are being fired at every day. I'm talking about people having a good time, these people, you ever heard of emotional release? You ever heard of need to blow some steam off?"
Hell, Rush Assnuts even makes light of torture by selling a line of clothing/gear on his own website called "Club Gitmo" and he’s denying he supports torture??
The most hilarious thing of all is when Rush said, "I don't know of anybody who died from torture." Is this dipshit serious? He’s never heard of Manadel al-Jamadi? He was the Iraqi prisoner who was tortured to death during interrogation in November of 2003.
Here’s U.S. Army Specialist Charles Graner giving his "thumbs up" over al-Jamadi’s corpse.
There was also Afghan taxi driver Dilawar who was beaten to death by U.S. soldiers while being held in extrajudicial detention at the Bagram Air Base in 2002. This was also the main subject of the 2007 documentary Taxi to the Dark Side, directed by Alex Gibney.
I just named two deaths in about 10 seconds, and fatass couldn’t think of one? Obviously it’s not that Rush couldn’t think of one, it’s just that the caller was kicking Rush’s ass already and Rush didn’t want to kick his own ass by actually naming some deaths by torture. No, Rush, you’re not a Nazi. You’re worse than one since the Nazi’s actually didn’t lie about what they did!
Rush Limbaugh…his ass kicked again by a REAL American who served in the military!
Wherever in Chicago you are , Charles…you’re my hero.
Oh by the way, here’s a link to Rush’s website where he has the complete transcript of the call posted. Notice how the moron who typed it misspelled words like "Levine" (they spelled it "Leveen") and "Nuremberg" (They spelled it "Newenberg") and there are several other errors as well. And Rush has the nerve to say Charles doesn’t know diddly-squat????
Here’s Rush Limbaugh admitting he’s a Nazi in one of the funniest videos I’ve ever seen
Keith Olbermann exposes Limbaugh the big fat FRAUD on Countdown (as I anticipated he would).
watch the clip
Because he does not support torturing detainees (who may or may not be guilty, regardless if it violates the Geneva Conventions or not) he's "no Republican?"
Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the Republicans the party of the "good", "conservative", "Christian", "moral" people whose mission it is to rebuke and denounce those "evil", "liberal", "immoral" sinners who are hell-bent on destroying the fabric and traditions of America? Yet, it is the party of "morals" who support the barbaric act of torturing another human being, even to the point of death, whether they or innocent or not, or despite the fact that it not only separates us from the rest of mankind in how humane we are supposed to be as Americans but it has never been proven that enhanced interrogation methods are effective in extracting information from prisoners.
Here was Limbaugh telling a man who served in the military and who even voted for the party that Limbaugh belongs to that he "didn't know diddly-squat" and that he is not a "real Republican" because he did not advocate the very treatment that was supposedly induced on the very presidential candidate (John McCain) both men endorsed (although I personally hold the view that McCain was not tortured, a view that is supported by McCain's own fellow military buddies). Wow! Where in the flying fuck do people like Limbaugh come from? I would say outer space, but I don't want to offend space aliens.
Here's the million-dollar question: Since Republicans are the party that is supposed to be "moral", "religious", "Christian", etc., but yet they support torture, would they have been the very same people that took part in this?
Not a fair analogy? Why not? In both cases it's torturing a prisoner. Oh, that's right. It's because the Abu Ghraib detainees aren't sinless and Jesus was, right? If you were living at the time Jesus supposedly lived, how do you know how you would have felt? You may be religious now, but would you have been 2,000 years ago, or would you have been one of the ones who thought Jesus was a blasphemous nut? Maybe you think you know the answer to that, but in reality, you never will.
Bottom line, whether it's a religious figure or an accused prisoner...torture is wrong .
