Skip to comments.Limbaugh’s rants new McCarthyism
Posted on 03/24/2009 3:07:04 PM PDT by pissant
Why is it that in descriptions of the words and activities of Rush Limbaugh, it is not pointed out the obvious similarity of Limbaugh and Adolph Hitler.
Rush knows exactly what he has started. Do you remember how overbearing, intimidating and feared Sen. Joseph McCarthy became before his crudities and chilling attacks on patriotic citizens was stopped?
The rise of Hitler came about through use of the same strident, rancorous and dangerous appeal to a populace who had suffered military defeat and in times of embarrassment for their loss of economic power how the Germans suffered because of inflation and post-World War II decadence.
Could Limbaughs future in the U.S. follow a similar rise to power? Yes, it could happen in America; a thousand times yes. Limbaugh has sufficient numbers of fanatics who could rouse thousands of others who feel they have been passed over and are now aching to join in conflict to usurp our duly elected government. Limbaugh has said he hopes President Barack Obama fails.

I don’t think Marcel Stratton really grasps the irony in that post.
Of course not. Irony is beyond the grasp of libtards.
Marcel apparently wishes to ignore the real fuhror - who is already in the WH.
What a true ignoramus, this Marcel!
Typical marxist shadow projection...ROTFLOL!!
An honest reading of history shows that McCarthy was correct in his accusations. The left treated him the same way they treated Bush (any effective republican, really) and with equal success.
Calling the “Oh no, not this **** again” guy.
Ignorant, unjustified, politically-motivated and intellectually dishonest attacks on Rush (such as this one) are perfect examples of what the left means by “McCarthyism.”
Apparently the writer is a long time, well known retired art professor and nut case who was convinced the government was out to get him until the election of his Idol, BO. Google him and there is a picture of the specimen with a Yosemite Sam mustache that is hilarious.
Me thinks Marcel hit his head one too many times at Stratton Mountain.
Let’s see. We have:
* A President who is taking over the banking system and now wants the ability to seize any financial-sector company;
* A Congress that is penalizing private citizens retroactively with punitive taxation for their mistake;
* A Fed that is full-steam-ahead pursuing a doomed hyperinflationary monetary policy;
* A Supreme Court that won’t even hear arguments related to the fundamental Constitutional requirements for eligibility of a sitting President who has spent millions to keep his birth certificate under seal;
...And this bozo is concerned about a talk show host.
I suspect that Ole Marcel doesn’t know shinola about Sen. McCarthy. In retrospect, Joe McCarthy erred very little in pointing out that there were(are) a ton of communists in Hollywood and on the federal government payroll.
This PROVES that LIBERALS are Absolutely and Totally NUTS!!!
No Wonder they Love Castro, Che Guevara, Hugo Chavez, Mugabi, Quaddaffi, Imanutjob and of course Barack HUSSEIN!!
I’ve heard of idiots like this fool Marcel Stratton. Seeing them in public is truly breathtaking. The poor dolt should re-read Mein Kampf and compare it against the book Bill Ayers wrote for Oh-Bummer.
But I’m sure he can’t, he’s too stupid.
Alternate universe.... Up is down. In is out. Black is white. Freedom is repression.
Well said. The real power is in the Presidency not a radio show host. Good grief, this guy is delusional.
The major difference is that Rush is seeking to preserve our way of life; Hitler sought to overturn it! As different as night and day
Godwin’s law. Yawn..........
The use of “fascist” against their opponents is the intellectual masquerade of the left, masking their intellectual family relationship to the "National Socialist" ideologies of Hitler and Mussolini.
Kept from those same useful idiots, by their Marxist professors, is the Soviet holocaust against Russian Jews, including many top Communists, that Stalin executed in the years immediately preceding the deal he made with Hitler "to avoid war".
And why does the media print these asinine "fascist", "McCarthy" charges, which all originate with leftists? Because the media is the Marxist's biggest useful idiot.
And that's just in the first three paragraphs.
Most libs are delusional.

His type is accurately psychoanalyzed here:
Marcel Stratton, a mind that is terribly wasted.
This idiot writer failed history with flying colors.
Yep. That nails it.
If you ask one of these loons how exactly does Rush or any conservative embrace nazism, what could they say? I would like to ask them which leaders right now are the ones advocating government control of businesses, and volunteer “camps,” complete with uniforms, for young people?? These things aren’t coming from the right.
I know North Dakota has issues, but this guy is a loon,, heck , maybe he’s running for Ed Schultz’ slot as head loon of Fargo since Ed moved to the Beltway..
Either he doesn’t recognize the fascism right before his eyes because he’s an idiot, or he refuses to recognize the fascism right before his eyes because that recognition would too close to home, ideologically speaking.
Works for me.
left is right.
I was born in one country, raised in another.. My father was born in another country. I was not his only child. He fathered several children with numerous women.
I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in me. My mother died at an early age from cancer.
Later in life, questions arose over my real name.
My birth records were sketchy and no one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate.
I grew up practicing one faith but converted to Christianity, as it was widely accepted in my country, but I practiced non-traditional beliefs & didn't follow christianity, except in the public eye under scrutiny.
I worked and lived among lower-class people as a young adult, disguising myself as someone who really cared about them.
That was before I decided it was time to get serious about my life and I embarked on a new career.
I wrote a book about my strugges growing up. It was clear to those who read my memoirs that I had difficulties accepting that my father abandoned me as a child.
I became active in local politics in my 30's then with help behind the scenes, I literally burst onto the scene as a candidate for national office in my 40s. They said I had a golden tongue and could talk anyone into anything. That reinforced my conceit.
I had a virtually non-existent resume, little work history and no experience in leading a single organization. Yet I was a powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to me as though I were a magnet and they were small roofing tacks.
I drew incredibly large crowds during my public appearances. This bolstered my ego. At first, my political campaign focused on my country's foreign policy. I was very critical of my country in the last war and seized every opportunity to bash my country.
But what launched my rise to national prominence were my views on the country's economy. I pretended to have a really good plan on how we could do better and every poor person would be fed & housed for free.
I knew which group was responsible for getting us into this mess. It was the free market, banks & corporations. I decided to start making citizens hate them and if they were envious of others who did well, the plan was clinched tight.
I called mine "A People's Campaign" and that sounded good to all people.
I was the surprise candidate because I emerged from outside the traditional path of politics & was able to gain widespread popular support.
I knew that, if I merely offered the people 'hope' , together we could change our country and the world.
So, I started to make my speeches sound like they were on behalf of the downtrodden, poor, ignorant to include "persecuted minorities" like the Jews. My true views were not widely known & I needed to keep them unknown, until after I became my nation's leader.
I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody could have easily found out what I really believed, if they had simply read my writings and examined these people I associated with.
I'm glad they didn't. Then I became the most powerful man in the world. And the world learned the truth.
Who am I? .........
Who did you think I was talking about?
I think he’s an idiot so I didn’t get past the first paragraph.
You normally post worthwhile articles so I am at a loss as to why you bothered to give exposure to this poorly written column of crudely unsupported accusations from a nobody columnist? It reads like what passes for careful thought at DUH.
Is there such a thing as an intelligent, reasoned slam on Rush?
i don’t think Rush is a member or supporter of the big government policies of the National German Socialist Workers Party
I wanted to leave a message but I ain’t signing up
He is a retired professor from Minnesota State University at Moorhead. He taught art I believe and retired about 25-30 years ago.
Fanatics??? What a dimbulb.
Marcel Stratton’s knowledge of history is, to say the least, limited.
One might say it is non-existent.
McCarthy doesn't come close to this clown:
"Rep. Barney Frank calls Scalia a 'homophobe'"
Spoken like a true Obamabot
Marcel Stratton has all the insight of a cave fish. Did anyone get the licence of the turnip truck he fell off of? (Mixed metaphors for a crazy, mixed-up kind of guy.)
And there still are!
GREAT post! obommie-the-commie is another hitler/chavez wannabee.
Dude! There have to be better and more interesting articles than this on the Internet.
