Skip to comments.Envious (Liberal Talk Radio Host) Ed Schultz Likens Limbaugh to Hitler
Posted on 03/05/2009 5:12:25 AM PST by Zakeet
Deep down, Ed Schultz is shallow, to paraphrase Dorothy Parker.
Case in point: Schultz's trite, cliched comparison of conservative talker Rush Limbaugh's remarks before a boisterous CPAC audience with Hitler addressing a Nazi rally.
Schultz, the top-rated liberal radio host in the nation, watched Limbaugh's speech on TV last weekend -- with the sound turned down -- and was convinced he saw "striking" parallels to the German dictator.
Here's what Schultz said on Monday's show, preceding his criticism of Limbaugh with praise for the late radio giant Paul Harvey (click here for audio) --
He was looked up to as a guy that would always, OK, give you the rest of the story, but also give it to you straight. But he was a staunch conservative, you couldn't get around it. But he told a great story about people and I think in some respects that's missing in our media coverage today, that we don't get the story about the guy down the street who had an amazing thing happen to him. It was sensationalism news, I guess you could say, but the truth, and interesting. And that's really what a broadcaster's supposed to do, bring it to you in an interesting manner.
It's kind of like the way Rush brought it to CPAC over the weekend, about how, you know, how interesting he was (plays audio of speech by Hitler over Limbaugh's remarks) Look, how many times do you watch the TV monitors with the sound down? I don't know how you watch television, but oftentimes we have the sound down in our home until we visually see something that we want to hear ...
So we have our monitors with the sound down. Now if you watch Limbaugh with the sound down, the drugster, he looks like Adolf Hitler! His animation is amazing! It's, the parallel is so striking. And then, of course, Rush is now the angry American. The angry American.
Criticizing Limbaugh is easier for liberals if they doesn't actually listen to him (as a former left winger, I speak from experience).
Limbaugh isn't nearly as volcanic as another radio host who comes to mind -- you guessed it, Schultz. Don't take my word for it, here are two examples, one from September after McCain's selection of Palin left him unhinged for weeks (click here for audio), the second from Schultz's show today when he blamed conservatives for his rising health insurance bill (audio here).
Along with Hitler's animated rhetoric, there was his pathological intolerance of dissent -- much like Schultz's vitriol toward a caller in October who dared disagree with him (audio) --
Let's not forget Hitler's veneration of the Aryan as supreme being, combined with his loathing for the weak and infirm. Schultz appears similarly inclined, based on this exchange with a caller about former Vice President Cheney in a wheelchair on inauguration day (audio).
In a fleeting moment of candor, Schultz admitted the basis for his resentment toward the far more successful Limbaugh -- envy. Here's what Schultz said on his show Tuesday (audio here) --
He's getting written about, he's getting talked about, he's getting hourly updates on all of the networks. Am I jealous? Every talk show host is sitting here saying we'd love to have that. C'mon! We're radio, we're in radio, we have egos.
You know, just like the Nazis.
I've really got those liberals' panties in a wad, haven't I.
Godwin’s Law, Sgt Schultz loses.
Q: “Ed, where are your atings?”
A: “Nothing...I see noootthing!”
Top rated liberal talk show host? That is like being the tallest midget in the carnival.
WHO THE HELL is Schultz? never heard of him. is he on 30,000 watts in nowhereville?
RDS... It’s the new BDS.
ED who? never heard of him.
You could sail the Cutty Sark with panties the size of Ed Schultz’s.
But then again, Rush’s jock is bigger because he’s got a set and Schultz don’t.
Just another case of liberal projection. Nothing unusual to see here.
A famous dog-killer.
That's no small honor by the way.
Oh look, Red Ed has headphones on so he can hear himself.
Hey, he needs an audience.

Schultz is an idiot... Hey, Ed! Are you sure you really want to go there?
More to the point, take a look at some of those videos out praising Obama... Change the language, and a few words, and you could have school children in the Hitler Youth, or praising Mao (made Hitler AND Stalin look like pikers in human slaughter) or that North Korean Chia-Pet or his daddy!
I’ve always wanted to call into Schultz’s show when he calls Dick Cheney “shooter” and ask him how his hunting dog is feeling these days. I’ve heard that it gets him really pissed off.
Schultz, did you say this guys name is SCHULTZ.
This guy is all about and only about the money. He wants to cut in on some of that cash Rush is making.
I'm wondering when the time has arrived to drop the conservative "nice" attitude and start responding in kind.
Bush is a Nazi? Fine. Obama is a Communist and a Chicago thug in the Al Capone mode, if that's the way you want to play it.
Limbaugh is a fat, drug-addicted windbag?
Okay. Keith Olbermann is a snot-nosed, lamebrained moron who can't tie his own shoes.
The old Goebbels credo was that a lie told often enough soon becomes accepted as truth.
Libs are constantly running around trashing conservatives, while conservatives bend over backwards trying to appear "civil." And look where it's gotten us.
It's becoming quite obvious that you don't win by bringing a knife to a gunfight.
YO, BIG ED, you Whining fata**ed LIBERAL SCUM...
If you watch ANY Public Speaker that has taken ANY PUBLIC SPEAKING COURSE at ANY US UNIVERSITY... you will Learn ways to command attention and get your point across.
BIG ED, I’ve been a little to Generous ... some of my “More Conservative” friends are Correct.. You LIberals are nothing but a bunch of Whining 8 year olds, throwing a Tantrum because a Grownup has said ... “NO”
Shultz along with the rest of the Lib talkers are just jealous of the publicity. They’re just trying to outdo one another with outrageous statements trying to get attention.
I heard some Lib skank the other day on Larry King Alive call for RUSH to be executed for treason.
Problem for them is that nobody cares what they say.
