Rush Limbaugh:Referred to as "The new face of Fascis"

Denver-- Following Rush Limbaugh's broadcast calling for violent riots in Denver, city officials issue a warrant for his arrest. Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper called Limbaugh a "dangerous domestic terrorist" that should be locked up.

No stranger to controversy talk show host Rush Limbaugh made comments calling for riots in Denver during the Democratic National Convention this summer. As part of his "Operation Chaos" Limbaugh is expecting Republican rioters to burn cars, burn houses and kill children.

"Riots in Denver, the Democrat Convention would see to it that we don't elect Democrats," Limbaugh said during Wednesday's radio broadcast. He then went on to say that's the best thing that could happen to the country.

John Hickenlooper disagrees with Limbaugh, "I don't see how a group of GOP thugs wrecking Denver and injuring our citizens aids the democratic processes of the nation." Hickenlooper went on to demand an apology from Limbaugh and stated that "If Limbaugh and any of his brown shirted thugs come to Denver they will be arrested.

The Left can't take a joke. If any one is going to riot in Denver, its them.

Yes. Notice how the warning didn’t stop it from making the front page, or stop the rejoicing in the comments. The way story content overrides story fact on that site is rather annoying.

If this was Bush, the story would stick, because he is hapless at defending himself or countering a leftist lie.

Rush will turn this around against the people who are pushing it. Count on it.

First, the morons don’t even know what fascist means.

Second, nice setup, if there are riots at the Dem convention it must be Republicans that caused it...

Right...

If there are riots, it will be loony left on loony left like it always is.

Did you read some of the posts after the article? I was laughing my butt off! Here's a good one with appropriate commentary from yours truly:

(1) COMMISSION- The term `Commission' means the National Commission on the Prevention of Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism established under section 899C.

`(2) VIOLENT RADICALIZATION- The term `violent radicalization' means the process of adopting or promoting an extremist belief system for the purpose of facilitating ideologically based violence to advance political, religious, or social change. --- Hmmm. . .you mean like the Democratic Party and left wing nutjobs?

`(3) HOMEGROWN TERRORISM- The term `homegrown terrorism' means the use, planned use, or threatened use, of force or violence by a group or individual born, raised, or based and operating primarily within the United States or any possession of the United States to intimidate or coerce the United States government, the civilian population of the United States, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives. --- Gosh!! Sounds like Recreate 68!!

`(4) IDEOLOGICALLY BASED VIOLENCE- The term `ideologically based violence' means the use, planned use, or threatened use of force or violence by a group or individual to promote the group or individual's political, religious, or social beliefs. --- This one sounds like it was slipped in there to describe the Klintons!

As a rule I don’t ever read the comments firstof all because the median age for posters at digg is 14 years and median IQ is somewhere between severe mental disability to barely functional.

Rush will turn this around against the people who are pushing it.

Yeah, he'll probably auction the whole thing off and give the proceeds to charity, with he himself matching the funds so raised.

He brought up Dan's Bake Sale Friday, noting that Fort Collins was left as clean as when the event started.

It won't be GOP thugs; it'll be Dem thugs making a riot if any riot ensues.

You’re correct .. the left has no sense of humor .. and it’s not the “right” or the repubs who show up at world gatherings and protest, riot, and totally destroy property.

But .. there is a group, “Re-Create68.com” who IS OPENLY AND ACTIVELY PLANNING FOR RIOTS IN DENVER - AND THIS IDIOT MAYOR DOESN’T EVEN MENTION THEM.

Or .. is this a ploy by the left to BLAME the repubs IN ADVANCE - in order to cover the left’s rear end. These leftists are so deceiptful .. I wouldn’t put anything past them.

Yes, in reviewing the site, I belatedly, regretfully come to realize it is indeed a satire as is the general theme of the site itself,

I profusely apologize to Free Republic and my fellow FReepers for my utter negligence and boneheaded sloppiness for having posted it.

Wasn’t Rush referring to Democrats rioting in Denver, as in the Obama faction and the Hillary faction duking it out to the bitter end?

I could be wrong but I don’t think Rush was talking about “Republicans” rioting but Democrat against Democrat???This guy is stating that Rush is calling for Republicans to riot.

It is being reported this way so that if there is rioting it will be “Republicans” fault. So this story is just propaganda to setup blame in the future. The actual truth is beside the point...

Don't sweat it -- sometimes we all get taken in by satire.

Just add this to the growing list of "post as satire" sites...

Rush and the lib media might have actually prevented a riot by promoting this bit of humor?

As part of his "Operation Chaos" Limbaugh is expecting Republican rioters to burn cars, burn houses and kill children.

"Republican rioters"? Where do they get this pap?

Wow... This is projection at it's greatest. Rush said that he's dreamed of riots at the DNC convention, and not republicans causing carnage, but dems, ala the 1968 DNC convention in Chicago.

And it just might happen, given the fact that the hard left doesn't like the possibility that Hillary might just win, or that Obama might move to the right, just a little bit, if he's given the nomination. The hard left has gotten used to the idea that they're driving the dem bandwagon, and they won't give it up without a fight, possibly a violent fight.

Digg is getting almost as bad as our MSM. Story about “global warming”? It’s there - with no “inaccurate” tag. Story about the N technical flaws in global warming models? It’s there with an “possibly inaccurate” tag - with nothing to back up the “inaccurate” claim. Considering the technical backgrounds of what I’ve seen as replies in Digg, perhaps we should consider starting a “real” Digg-like site.

No. Digg is the very manifestation. distillation of the target audience to whom the MSM directs their misinformation, propaganda to.
They’re the next generation left-wing audiences programmed to absorb, digest the daily diatribe diet of what is standard fare of the MSM liberal curriculum, and which unfortunately is the bulk of what you will find at the ever burgeoning social networking,phenomena.

This story is a lie, but if the left keeps repeating it, then maybe then others will start believing it. The ‘old Nazi trick’.

The old Nazi trick.
The aphorism "Repeat a lie enough and it becomes true" has been attributed to the Nazis, specifically Hermann Goering, Josef Goebbels, something quite easy to believe when considering the criminally insane lives they've so egregiously demonstrated to have lived.

I had come across a blog a few years ago written by a liberal, left wing Canadian nut job who was as vituperative and rabid an American hater I'd ever seen. He had posted the quote about repeating a lie often enough and it becomes true quite prominently on his site and having attributed it to the Nazis' Josef Goebbels.

I sent him a note asking if he had known the original source for that infamous, notorious quote was none other than his idealogical mentor, Vladimir Lenin, would he still leave the quote posted, credited to whom had initially inspired that saying, nearly thirty years before the Nazis ever began using it?? Needless to say I never got a reply but several weeks later when I checked the site, the quote was nowhere to be found.

I thought it was satire too but Sen. Ken Salazar actually has called for some kind of reprimand of Rush Limbaugh so I wasn’t sure. Leave it to a real Democrat to be dumber than satire. lol

Mayor Hickenlooper? wasn’t he the Charmin guy who recently died?

Seriously, if my name were hickenlooper, I would a) not run for public office and b) if elected, I woud say as little as possible.

If I have offended any Hickenloopers out there, get over it. I’m not into phoney apologies.
