For those of you who associate yourselves in any way with these types of people…well, you’re an idiot.
I am in no away anti-Republican.
I am anti-Crazy. And lately, a lot of hardcore right wingers, conservative talk show hosts (Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck, et al.), and right wing corporations have overdosed on a shitload of crazy pills.
These talk show hosts and corporations are comparing Obama to Hitler and his health care plan to the Nazi movement. They have also said the new health care plan will push people into suicide and aid in killing the elderly. I wish I was joking.
These guys/groups get these ridiculous ideas into the public’s head and they eat it up. People are dumb. I’m sorry, but most humans are incredibly idiotic. We’ll believe anything we see on TV or read on the Internet. These “shock quotes” the groups are saying are internalized and repeated by the masses.
Comparing someone to a Nazi invokes very specific emotions and these emotions are not exactly minor. This can not be underestimated. People, at the behest of these conservative clowns, are showing up at Democratic Town Hall Meetings in angry mobs. They drown out speakers with their chants and have even started fights.
There have also been incidents of burning effigies of Democratic representatives and death threats.
It is only a matter of time before something worse happens. These talk show hosts have to stop invoking thoughts of the Nazi movement, which have essentially incited mini riots.
Please take a moment to watch this news clip about these issues. I know it’s kind of long, but its interesting (and quite scary). Check out the first 5 minutes or so at least – it is shocking.
